There are a couple of new guild ranks. Warlord will remain for our Raid Leaders, but a new rank, Warbringer, will be for the PVP Leaders. The Guild Praetor position was condensed with the current officer rank, Legati. All the other guild ranks are unaffected.
If you raid, or want to raid, speak to a Warlord.
If you PVP, or want to PVP, consult a Warbringer.
Do not forget about the guild’s Hallow’s End Transmog Contest currently underway at: http://ministryofdefense.net/halloween
Congrats guys and gals on last nights raiding successes in Uldir! We are currently 1/8M, 8/8H, 8/8N, 8/8 LFR 🙂 ! If you were asked to sit last night, please make sure to watch the videos, read about the encounters, learn the fights, and how the role you play applies to the encounters.
Special thanks to Quetzie for raffling off an in-game store mount for last nights participants. You rock!
Just a reminder that Grimmshock is collecting donations for materials for our raid feasts. These include: Redtail Loach, Frenzied Fangtooth, and Midnight Salmon, Stringy Loins and Meaty Haunches, amongst other useful feast related items and mats. There is a prize to the top two donators during this week. Please mail your feast donations to Grimmshock.
Also, beginning this week, we start heroic progression in Uldir on Thursday and Friday, with this upcoming Monday being an Alt night/Normal Uldir night. All the raids start at 4pm server. We have an ilevel cutoff for heroic raiding starting at 355. There might be a DPS cutoff upcoming, depending on progress.
A reminder from the Guild’s Head Chef, Grimmshock:

What we are looking for: Redtail Loach, Frenzied Fangtooth, and Midnight Salmon. Will also accept Stringy Loins and Meaty Haunches. I’ll keep a tally of all donations and announce a winner and runner up 7 October. The prizes are a stingray mount and 10k gold. Winners choice.
Congrats to the following people for their recent promotions within the guild!
Bulborbish has been promoted from Legati to Guild Praetor for all his help during the guilds’ raids, as well as continuing an excellent job with Sunday Funday events!
Lunzzul has been promoted to Warlord, bringing the PVP section of our guild to within equal standing with the guild’s PVE raiding section.
Accordingly, Hoss has been promoted from Legati to Guild Praetor, for his continued help in the PVP area.
Round out the promotions, are bumps up for two new guild officers, Bizatch and Miatreeleafa. Thank you both for helping out our PVP division!
Congrats to the guild for getting their first heroic kill on Taloc last night! Remember, if you want to raid with Ministry of Defense, there is actually work you have to do like reading the guilds’ raiding rules, properly confirming you have done so with a Warlord and preparing by watching the appropriate boss fight videos. All the information you need is here:
