So, we have recently added a bunch of officers and assistants (Legatis and Praetors) to help out with various aspects of Battle for Azeroth. I figured that I would take some time to introduce them to everyone (both new and old) with what their guild roles are!

Lunzzul and Hoss (Deathhoss) – are 1st and 2nd in command of our PVP division

Wolframheart – Guild Tailor (bags) and Guild Bank control

Sym – is currently helping where needed, but may take a leadership role when Warfronts start

Widrick – chiefly responsible for technical issues as they pertain to the guild website

Grim – guild chef and produces our feasts, amongst other things

Bulb – Sunday Funday officer and enchants producer

Lineda – Guild Alchemist and Flask producer

Zextol/Telanlan/Quetzie/Tiv – Raid Leaders (Warlords)

Truetype – Officer in Training – Island Expeditions

 

A new way to get Gladiator status is now being introduced! All you have to do is PvP with the Gladiators! Whenever you want to run some PvP of any kind, contact one of us and it will count towards a spicy new promotion. Whether it’s 3v3s, 2v2s, world PvP, random battlegrounds, ganking lowbies, whatever, run it with some guildies!

I’ve added Lunzzul, PvP Officer, to the About MoD page. She joins the other Warlords and Urostek with a short bio.

I’ve also updated Telanlan – more commonly known as Telann – to his Druid’s information instead of his Demon Hunter, since he swapped mains at the end of Legion (make no mistake, we druids are taking over the guild!).

Within the next month all of the site admins likely be getting new avatars and transmog pictures as the loot upgrades start to slow and people pick a new “look” for the upcoming tier. This helps put a face to a name, as it were, so you know who to look for in raids and arenas. Not sure what to do as a ranged DPS? Follow the giant chicken! Can’t find that alliance priest? Stick to sparkle kitty! Not sure where to stand as melee? Glue yourself to the bright yellow rogue – and avoid the neon red bear!

Cheers to Telann, Foxxiê, and Lunzzul for making their first posts recently. Lunzz is also working on the PvP Pages to keep our Gladiators updated on everything important for this growing aspect of the guild. I hope we’ll see a lot more posts from them in the future! Each of our site admins brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, and we hope to represent our members accordingly.

 

I continue to try to push out quality of life changes and add new, useful, and fun features to the website for the guild. If you have an idea or a suggestion, fill out the Feedback form and let me know! Is something broken? Submit a Bug Report!

Thank you to everyone that attended the PvP meeting tonight! The turn out was way better than I expected, so I am hoping for a super fun season! If you were unable to attend, you can find all of the information that we went over here.

If you have anymore comments, questions, or concerns, ask me at any time, and I will do my best to answer! The best way to contact me is through Discord (Lunzzul#7740).

If you are interested in being a part of a 3v3 or 2v2 arena team, let me know! Two of my super awesome Gladiators have offered to run events specifically for this. We need interest before we can proceed with it!

Pay attention to the PvP announcements channel in Discord for future updates!

Two small and one big change coming to the site today!

New Top Banner

First, the banner at the top of every webpage has been updated. It used to be our kill pic from Nighthold:

Now, it’s our kill pic from Heroic Antorus:

New Raiding Homepage Banner

Remember the AOTC Mount Photo and submissions?

PvP Pages

Last, but certainly not least, we have a PvP section on the website now.

Much like the Raiding homepage, the PvP homepage has the most recent 10 PvP posts, and links to the rules and complete PvP news feed. It also includes a handy list of PvP-only resources, like addons and macros. The homepage lists requirements for partaking in both casual and rated PvP, and features the picture of us on our mounts after achieving For the Horde.

I made a slight change to the Raiding Rules & Regulations page today. It was pointed out that I still had “Monday / Wed” listed as the days. This has been corrected to Thursday / Friday.

Also a reminder that because the Raiding Rules were updated for the new season, everyone must re-read them, including those who raided previously or are already Vanguards. We want to ensure that everyone is on equal footing.

Didn’t read it yet? You should! Check out the Uldir Pre-Raid Planning Meeting Minutes. It’s required reading for future raid attendees!

Additional questions / clarification I’ve added to the post that I’ve received since the meeting:

Do we need to have the videos memorized / mechanics all memorized?
No! Sorry, that would be totally unreasonable of us. We want you to have a good understanding of mechanics but we do not expect perfection on day one. There are going to be a lot of “Oh, that’s what they meant by XX!” moments as we start raiding.

Can you clarify what you mean by “neck level”?
Yes, of course! By “neck level” we meant “Azerite Level / Artifact Power Level”. We did not mean Heart of Azeroth ilvl. I’ve edited the aforementioned text [in the original post] to clarify this point.

I didn’t read X because Y reasons / I didn’t see it in your post / I must have misheard:
If you don’t see information listed, don’t hesitate to reach out to us – we might have forgotten. Also, if we say something verbally, feel free to tell us “Hey you should add that to a post / put it in raiding announcements”. We don’t want to forget to share important information!

But let me reclarify and reiterate: EVERYTHING posted in Raid Announcements, the Raid News feed, AND the Raider Homework feed is required reading. I also suggest reading the Player Performance category, though that is not currently required.

You can easily cut this down to the “Raid Announcements” and “MoD Website Feed” Discord channels if you don’t want to check the website specially. NOT ALL INFO WILL BE CROSS-POSTED. IT IS ON YOU TO FOLLOW THE APPROPRIATE INFORMATION CHANNELS. “I didn’t see it / didn’t know where to look” is not a valid excuse anymore!

TLDR:

(I’ve also edited some typos. We’re no longer proudly interested in receiving pictures to show off your member.)

The new raid days are going to interfere with one of our PvP days, so we are going to have to change our days to work around it so that everyone can attend either without interference. Because I still want to have the schedule as available to everyone as possible, I am asking everyone that wants to PvP with us in BfA to fill out this spreadsheet.

 

Another reminder to add is that there will  be a PvP/Rated BG interest meeting August 29 at 5pm server(8pm Eastern). If you are interested in joining us and would like to see what we are all about, be sure to pop in Discord for this quick little meeting! If you will not be able to attend, message me on Discord at any time, and I will go over the information with you.
