Class Discussions

We have some interesting class discussions during our raids.

Here are a couple for those not on the channel…

In the mages channel:

I have had quite a few comments about how the healing channel is very quiet, and that we really should try and chat more. We’ll let you decide if this is a good idea or not:

SI has entered the building…

Guild Rankings Explained

There are 8 guild ranks:

If you are abusing your priviledges as a guild member, you may be demoted to this rank. You do not have any speaking priviledges, but can read guild chat.

New recruits for a period of 3-4 weeks. At the end of the trial period, new recruits will be assessed.

Guild members.

Officers alts rank.

Senior members of the guild.
Basis for Promotion: Level 60, Guild Spirit

What is guild spirit and how do I get it?

Guild spirit is about what contribution you make to the guild. To increase your guild spirit you can:

– Play WOW often.
– Participate in guild chat.
– Helping other guild members (with quests, making items, giving discounts etc)
– Attending various raids and groups.
– Visiting and adding to the website.
– Recruit new members (even if you do not have permission to add members, you can request a player of Major rank or higher to invite your initiate into the guild)

Whether you have enough guild spirit to increase your rank is determined by a vote in the Council. Council members consist of Brigadier and above ranks.

Officer Rank: How do I become one?

Officers are highly respected members of SI. As such, they have shown complete dedication to the guild and its progression. Such members are nominated by the current Officers, and voted on as a majority.

As a basic rule of thumb, if you ask to become an Officer, you probably aren’t suitable for the position.

New Guild Started on Proudmoore!

A new guild has been started on the Proudmoore Server.

Players were enthusiastic about the new guild name Strangely Ironic.

A fresh beginning is a great start, and I’m happy to see that this guild is going places…namely XR to kill Horde an unidentified member has said.

We look forward to hearing great things about the new guild – which should give some of the other guilds on the server a run for their money.
