First off all I would like to start off thanking each and every player in the guild with the effort they put into the guild. I know I usually complain and nag, so thought I would mix it up a bit this time. I am very pleased with how people behave within and outside the guild, and the Nidvardir community is growing closer and getting better. I hope we continue to improve this, by respecting and helping each other. Signing to raids, being on time, coming prepared with buffs and enchants, and having focus within raids is a big part of the respect we give to our fellow raiders. This is mostly not an issue, and I hope our Class Leaders are watching this closely so the raids go as smooth and good as it should.
We are preparing towards AQ40, and just got our 2nd Thunderfury, so things are looking up. People are getting nature ress, and we are stocking up on consumables for the next content. Guild Bank is growing fat, and we should be able to support the raid with some of the required consumables on progression phase. Who knows? Maybe Nidvardir finally will have to actually progress a content, instead of oneshotting all the bosses. Will be hard to top the BWL launch, but I hope we have improved the guild, the gear and the individual skills since then.
There have been an increased amount of “requirements” lately. We want all raiders (thralls, Marauders and Berserkers) to have clickers in every important zone. Each raider also has to contribute with one summoner, divided out between the zones. This will ensure us much flexibility and will lessen the workload on the few who actually has summoners today.
We also expect all Berserkers to have 205 engineering when AQ patch hit. Marauders and Thralls are also highly encouraged to bring sappers to raid. Only a few people in the guild has two professions that are highly necessary for them to not have engineering as a 2nd profession. Don't know with you, but can't wait to see the first raid with 40/40 sapper raid. 24k instant AOE dmg is going to be a fun tool to have, both in raids and in BRM.
December has arrived, and we are all going into a busy month. We will try to maintain two raids for as long as possible, but I suspect we will go down to 1 raid in the period 18th december to 27th december. I hope we will try to do some good events, like christmas ZG, or some world PvP raiding.
World bosses are upon us again, and this time I think we are more prepared then ever. Please try to be available and have your characters and summoners at the right position when window is open. Bring the correct consumables and know the tactics. This won't be a tag war, and I expect lots of fun PvP encounters. Get on our joint warfare discord, and watch out for the news. Need help connecting to the discord, contact one of the officers for help.
Nidvardir is probably the best geared guild on the server, and should be within top 3 guild on the server. ATM we are nowhere near the quality that it requires.
When we started this guild, we had no ambitions to be a hardcore guild or a top guild, but we always wanted to have focus on quality within raids. That’s why we have mainspecc only, and require people to bring pots and buffs to make the raid as smooth as possible. This worked out very well in the start and we grew and grew, both in skill and numbers. Suddenly we had two raids, good guild atmosphere and solid performance. The hardcore guilds around us died, and we remained strong and grew. Now there is very few guilds from the first raid month alive. It is us, sanctum and Fika that is worth mentioning.
So, things should be awesome for us? Well the fact is that we are performing worse now that we have since the start of the guild. This is by far the worst period we have had in this guild, and it all boils down to one thing. FOCUS! Last night in Molten Core was a complete joke. Asspulling has become a habit in Molten Core. YES, Molten core! The raid we have been clearing for 9 months now. One should think we have learned the paths and where to stack on surgers by now, and what potions to use at each pack/boss fights. And don’t get me started on 25 men + onyxia wipes!
People need to step up and start focusing in raids. I have no trouble with people fucking up, shit happens! Laziness and underperformance is not acceptable any longer. If you can’t bring the pots, don’t sign for raids. If you cannot stay focused from 19-23, don’t sign for raids. If you cannot compete with your class mates, even if you have the same gear you need to improve your gameplay. This is NOT a particularly hard game, and we have top players on the server in most classes. Learn from them on how to play, use them to improve. There should be no reason for you underperforming. But if you don’t want to improve, focus or bring the pots/buffs to raids, the rest of us don’t want to carry you through content.
Forward the focus of officers and CL’s will be to review the players raiding in the guild. There are persons who slack and don’t focus that have raider status (marauder and more). We will be generous handing out demotes to social for any player who don’t meet our expectations on focus and raid preparation. We hope to avoid this, because we really enjoy the atmosphere and players in the raids atm, but something must be done to improve the raid quality.
Would also like to say that toxic behaviour towards alliance characters, either in communication or action will be severely dealt with. We have no room for people that make this server more toxic and hostile. Nidvardir players should maintain a good reputation among our piers. Ignore troublemakers and move on with your day.
Hope we step up our game and continue progressing towards AQ40! We are dominant on the boards in certain classes and hope the other classes pick up the slacks!
