re: Rantings of the Guild Stalker, Week 197 & 198

0

Welcome to the 197th & 198th edition of the Rantings of the Guild Stalker, your one stop spot to get all the juiciest tidbits. But if you hear it here, you probably didn't hear it first-unless you did-in which case I call Shaman Iguana!

 

Welcome to this week's double edition newsletter! And, more importantly, welcome to October. Where the heck does the time go? Maybe the Legion has found a new source of power for their "soul" machines? Dunno...just a theory but I swear it is moving faster than normal lately. This double edition newsletter also brings with it three new guildmates! So please welcome GillgameshPhantomr, and Mayushii. When you see them online be sure to give them a warm Reciprocity welcome. 

I would also like to take this time to tell you all a little bit more about our newest member Phantomr. He is a bit different than most of us in that RP is his favorite part of the game. For those of us who don't RP--or never have--that can make things that people say not make a ton of sense.  Now, Phantomr and I sat down over a nice meal at Legend's Home at his base in Draenor and had a nice chat about guild chat and etiquette etc. That said, RP can be a ton of fun and if you ever want a break from the daily grind of world quests, gearing and all that be sure to hit Phantomr up. Dancingbee and I are also going to work on setting up an RP event or two so we have a designated time for some RP because I know we have several guildmates who used to RP, but don't anymore. Lastly, don't forget we have our Story Corner as well for people to post RP related works as well.

Also, don't forget that the Darkmoon Faire is in town this week. So, don't forget to get that carousel buff or don those hats to get that extra 10% experience and reputation.

Guildie of the Week

Vycerra

Vycerra is a great guildie, you can't deny it. Not only does he have a friendly demeanor, but he spent most of the last two weeks make not only tiny gems, but big gems for most of us. Thank you! 

To submit a nomination, send an in-game or website mail to Rhodaria. Be sure to specify who the guildie is you are nominating and why you are nominating them. To view the gallery of past winners go to our Guildie of the Week Page.

Guess your Guildmate

Okay my raiders, I am officially terribly disappointed that none of you could remember that it was Noinar who said "I hate to say it, but what if we went clockwise?" when we were adjusting our strategy on Nyth. (Because you know, he thinks ALL things should be clockwise). See if you know who exclaimed the following: 

"Oh my stars and garters...he Emerald Dream is beautiful!"

To submit a guess for GYG you can comment on this newsletter on the website or on facebook or send Rhodaria an in-game mail. To view previous weeks' challenges view the forum post. 

Guild Checkmark Challenge

Ahhhhh the Guild Bank wins again. Remember that if you complete a dungeon with at least two other guildmates that award the guild gold you should send Rhodaria an in-game mail to be put in the drawing for a chance to win gold. 

The GCG is one of our main sources of funds for the guild, which is made possible by all of you running guild dungeons and raids. you get one entry for every checkmark you complete, just be sure to send Rhodaria a mail to submit your entry. Learn more here

Guild Bank

We are continuing to try and collect enough materials to begin providing food, flasks, enchants and gems for everyone but are still in much much much need of materials. So any extras you have feel free to dump in. Thanks!

Raid News

A great raid week! I want to start by saying how much I appreciate everyone continuing to show up at invite time, it really makes my life easier and makes the entire invite process go  much more smoothly--particularly when our group size is this big. We did a great job this week too. We did significantly better on the bosses we had downed the previous week, and then downed two new ones. We got Iggy-boo down for the first time, and despite our initial struggle with Cenarius (let's be honest that is a crazy hectic fight and GOSH DARN IT I hate those brambles) we were victorious in the end. I can't wait for another great week of raiding with everyone. 

Don't forget to be signing up ahead of time. I have posted the raids for the rest of October, so get in there and sign up. Don't forget I had to cancel this Saturday's raid because Noinar and I will be out of town. But, we will be making it up with a for funsies Heroic attempt tonight. 

Lastly, raiders, don't forget to be running those mythics and mythic+ dungeons. I know it can be tempting to sit back and wait for gear to drop from the raid, but it would be really slow going that way. So help us by getting more gear outside of raid and make us a stronger team overall. If you need help, or are unsure just hit us up and we can try and schedule a time to go. I would really like to see all of our raiders do at least one Mythic+ a week. 

Congratulations

~There is a difference between encouraging people to try something and saying it is easy. Not everyone will find things as easy/difficult. Encourage and support each other!~
