Some may remember Aldorian from the days of Karazhan raiding....and some may wish to forget Aldorian from the days of Karaz....I jest of course. Aldo is a great raid leader and all round fab fella who's been pretending I'm better at Heroes of the Storm than I actually am, for the last year or so. In fact I've spent more time with Aldorian, albeit virtually, than I have with my wife!
He is a highly motivated individual, who flourishes in a team enviro......oh good Lord it's like I'm writing a job reference. Suffice to say - Aldo is good at WoW, he understands WoW, he understands mechanics, min/maxing, raiding, and how to motivate people to success. This wasn't my decision alone, all the Officers are behind his appointment to the role, and together we can all help EoM continue to be awesome.
As Officers we just do the admin, it's the guildies that make the guild - so let's make Legion an expansion to remember!! :)
Welcome back to the lofty heights of officery stuff Aldo :)
EoM needs blood, old and new......which sounds revolting, but bear with me. Lieutenant is a new senior rank for those who have permission to invite new guildies and alts alike, and who might have a particular talent for attracting awesome people to the guild :) The recruitment process to EoM will be simplified, the absolute requirement to fill out an online form has been removed, but the rules remain. We still want quality, lovely people over huge quantities of not-so-lovely people, and Lieutenants will help us achieve that aim.
Our First Lieutenant is Cyraxx (Psyched, Meeco etc), welcome to the role :)
Straight to the point, I'm making some changes to the Guild Bank.
Access for all members! - I am now giving the Member rank access to the Guild Bank. I want the bank to be used more often, and by as many people as possible. The withdrawal limit per character will be low - I'm certain we won't see any abuse, but just in case someone is hacked. Initiate's will remain barred.
Donate direct to the bank! - Previoulsy we've only taken donations sent to a specific guild character. I'm now changing that and making 2 complete tabs - donation only tabs. I'll then move stuff around to keep them fairly free of clutter.
Whats the Guild Bank for? - We've always kept stuff from previous xpacs to help levellers, well that's getting slimmed down. I want this to be a working bank for Legion. There will always be stuff like Pets and Toys. But old chants, mats and GEAR will be sold before Legion. If you want stuff to help level, or have any desire for anything before Legion - take it! After Legion has launched, if you take stuff, try and donate too, and try only to donate useful Legion specific items. Also don't be afraid to vendor or AH your loot - this is just for spares :) If you frequently donate more than you take, we'll make you a Donator Rank, upping your withdrawl limits
Repair Allowance- I have upped the Guild Repair Allowance by a lot for every rank outside of Initiates. Please always repair from the Guild Bank, don't feel like you can't, it's what it's there for :) I will be donating decent sums of Gold if it gets low. If I start being unable to feed my children, I'll turn the limits down again - but please go crazy for now :)
The website I redesigned with a ton of custom HTML, that took me ages....was a year ago. And frankly I've totally forgotten how it all worked, and well...it was Style over Substance. So that's just been trashed. And we're back to a standard Enjin theme, with just a tiny bit of custom HTML to handle the news bit slightly better. I'm going to keep breaking it for a bit, so it will look odd for a day or two.
The good news - There will be a lot of content coming to the site, especially for those returning to WoW who don't know what the hell is going on (like me :)). Recruitment is also top of my list.
Keep it real....or whatever the kids say these days.
The posts are coming more often, the hype is rising. The Legion beta is being visited, plans are being made, characters are being readied. The pre-patch for Legion (the bit with the new classes and all the changes except access to the Legion content and demon hunters) is downloading on the bnet launcher now. It's expected to go live either 19th July, or 26th July. For anyone who's not put their nose into the beta - this game is looking incredibly pretty! I'll be posting some stuff on the site soon for those returning to WoW after the long (or some - very long!) break. See you all soon.
