There are a few things that I stress about being in a Guild.
One of those is to promote active communication. When staying actively communication wise, we should use all forms of
communication available to us. Forums, Ventrilo, Facebook page etc…
As you join Protectors of the Ward, Please go to the Members Forums and introduce yourself, talk about yourself and if you
feel inclined, post a picture of yourself.
For those that have been with me for the past 6 years
playing World of Warcraft, this won’t be a huge surprise!
As in game, in Real Life, everyone just calls me Mumpy
I’m 44 years old, I feel 64 years old and I act 24 years
I retired from the Army in 2006.
I’ve been playing MMO’s since Asheron’s Call where I led the
Knights of the Northern Kingdom on the Harvestgain server. This was a very
large Monarch, the largest I’ve ever ran, we had some alts that made up as Rank
Alts but even still, we had 1500 Members on the Charter.
I left AC to play WoW where I formed Mags Marauders two
weeks after retail and led Mags for 4 years. Mags was the largest guild on the
Windrunner server and we were very successful, just not as successful as
others, hehe. After the Expansion the first time, Mags split up and because it
was so large when it split, two other guilds were formed and Mags still was in
tact. I then decided a Server Hop was called for due to Windrunner dying off
and myself and my friends moved to Zul’jin and formed Faith which is still being ran
to this day by one of it’s long time members.
Long story short… I took a break from WoW due
to personal things going on in my life and came back when RIFT Was released and
decided that instead of looking for a guild, I would create one to the exact spec I
Protectors of the Ward was formed.
The Guild I want will have enough Casual Members that we
will raid 5 days a week and if you can only raid two days a week,
that’s perfectly fine. I feel that when you recruit Casual Members those
members whom can only raid at most two or three times a week. So if I
recruit someone because we’re a casual guild and we raid Monday, Wednesday and
Thursday and that person can only raid Tuesday and Friday, they end up missing out! I want a guild that raids 5 days a week so
everyone can enjoy what we and the game has to offer.
The one thing I have always said as a GM is, we’re a Raiding
Guild. Well, this guild is going to enjoy everything RIFT has to offer and one
of those things are Warfronts. We will do guild wide Warfronts each week. We
will also do Guild Wide Rift Closings each week. If RIFT Offers it, I will find
a way for us to enjoy it.
For a Casual Gamer, every minute, every hour you get a
chance to spend in game is important to you.
I want a Guild that when you log on that Tuesday evening there is
something for you to participate in, if you desire.
Everything I’ve listed all sounds good on paper and that’s
fine, but I want to be the first to say, I can’t do any of it alone. I not only
want you to help, I need you to help.
The First step in all of this process is bonding as a Guild.
Currently I’m recruiting you all and hand selecting those that I feel I would
like to hang out with outside of the game.
I figure if I can hang out with you outside of the game then we’ll get
along great inside of the game. Let’s
bond as a Guild and I look forward to leading you towards that one common goal.
Last night I had the pleasure of encountering my first instance
in RIFT. Realm of the Fae, or as most of you have seen in Looking for Group
channel… RotF. I must say that with a good Tank and a good healer makes this
instance fun and for the most part easy. What I found very intriguing about the
instance was, although I was only level 15 and the group was made up of level 15
– 20, it felt like we were taking on a high level instance that we have
experienced in other MMORPG’s. The dynamics for boss fights needed to be
treated with respect. Tanks had to face bosses certain directions, The group
couldn’t stand in certain areas, such and such had to die first. It was good to
know that even though this was a low level instance, you couldn’t just go in
there and Tank and Spank everything in your path. Props to TRION for this!
So, if you’re looking for some decent Loot while doing something
fun, may I suggest grouping up with fellow Guild Members and taking on the
RotF! From what I seen, you need one Tank, One Healer, and 3 DPS. Having a Mage
is nice to have as one of those DPS but I don’t feel it’s at all costs
Here is the Wiki Page for the instance, read up and enjoy.
Realm of the Fae
