re: Rantings of the Guild Stalker, Week 200 & 201


Welcome to the 200th & 201st 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 newsletter! And HOLY COW!

This is a special Newsletter, because it is our 200th week (well and our 201st because last week seriously kicked my ass) of Guild Newsletters, which is pretty darn awesome. I want to just take one minute to thank everyone for helping make our wonderful guild what it is. I don't think any of us could have imagined that our little ten person guild could have blossomed into what it is today with some many outstanding members. And, while that has made writing a newsletter a tad more cumbersome at times, we still think it is entirely worth it to share what happens each week (or as close to each week as I can manage) because each of you matter and make this guild what it is. Keep being awesome!!

Now, the first order of business this week is to welcome our newest guild member. So give it up for Galwin! When you see him online be sure to give him a nice warm Reciprocity welcome.  

Don't forget there is also still a little bit of time left to get your Hallow's End groove on. So you can go make the rounds and gorge yourself sick on the Candy Buckets, and maybe even stop back at the Ol' Garrison for the pets and festivities. If you want the highlights, be sure to check out Wowhead's Hallow's End Guide. And, as most of you are well aware Tuesday also saw the arrival of patch 7.1. Despite the soul crushing fact that this meant the death of the range meter from DBM, there are, in fact, some really fun aspects to patch 7.1. So, you can check out the official patch notes or read up on Wowhead's 7.1 Survival Guide

And lastly, this week's flavor text entertainment is brought to you by the Lightning-Struck Hammer. I dunno about you, but when I first saw this item I seriously had that cartoon image in my know the one where the person flickers all black and skeleton like. Totally made me laugh out loud...for reals.

Guildie of the Week

Lazarys & Sveraph

Lazarys was nominated for giving up a piece of loot to a guildie, even though it would have been an upgrade for him, because it was a great upgrade for said guildie. It is actions like that, which help us be stronger as a guild and raid team.

Sveraph was nominated this week by numerous individuals for all of her hard work gathering enchanting mats and enchanting ALL THE THINGS for people. She has been doing all the world quests to get chaos crystals and been grinding rep left and right to try and get the rank 3 recipes. That really is impressive and we are deeply thankful for all you do.  

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

Horray for someone actually guessing! Katanyia was the brave soul who guessed this week. And it was a great guess. He thought it was Iraana (Blaph) who was not to keen on Chef (if you can call him that) Nomi. It was, however, Shero who was speculating on Nomi's education as the culprit for his lack of skill in the kitchen. Perhaps, you remember who was had this answer to a guildie after they were commenting on the effectiveness of Kill Command.

"Next time, try the 'Aggressive Cuddle' command."

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

Kittyn won 1600 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

Just a reminder that we are still working on getting to the point where we can provide gems, enchants, flasks and potions to everyone so, if you have extra materials of anything please drop it in the guild bank. Thanks! There should also now be most of the cheap enchants in the bank, if something is missing just hollar and we can make it.

Raid News

Well, we got to play around with Heroic Iggy-boo this past week. Boy, was that ever an experience. We did make some progress though...but still a ways to go. But we are at least getting better at that stupid Nythendra boss. Don't forget that this week we are going to four nights *rejoice* of raiding. Which means we added a Sunday night raid. Sunday's raid will be at the same time as Tuesday and Thursday, 8:30-10:45 pm Server time. 

Also, don't forget the new raid, Trail of Valor opens on November 8th. Currently we scheduled this for both Tuesday and Thursday. If it doesn't take us both nights we will head back to Heroic Emerald Nightmare. Once we get a sense of how Trail of Valor goes I will post the rest of the raids for November. 

As always, don't forget to be doing those Mythic+ runs each week to get your chest. And, when possible, bring an enchanter with you to DE the items people don't need. Because...well, chaos crystals <3.
