re: Rantings of the Guild Stalker, Week 285

0

Welcome to the 285th  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 super amazing pentadecalette...erm pentadecaple... uhmm... this super amazing 15-week-make-up-because-Rho-is-a-slacker newsletter!

As you might guess, a lot has happened since the last installment of the newsletter. I am not entirely sure I can get everything, but I will do my very best to catch the highlights!

 

We have several new guildies to welcome: Hiimjamesone, Darkregret, and Voidandra (and there might be others and I apologize if I missed you). This is why I did this every week (I am remembering now). 

We also saw Yonce, Sparkles, Rimupanda, Malthreed, Spacehealer, Overloaded and a few others I know came back but can't remember. We are always thrilled when our family returns home <3

Yonce also deserves a ginormous congratulations for graduating last week. Hip hip hooray *waves pompom*

We had a mini guild meet-up in Texas a few weeks back when the Rho Clan was there to visit Whither's mom. We got to meet up with Kung and it was a blast. Unfortunately, once again (it happened with Bee too) I got too caught up in the moment and we forgot to get a picture *tear* so no fun pics to show anyone. 

Cela took a trip out to I want to say Seattle to visit a longtime guildie (also longtime gone--we miss you Sami) and take in all the sites and to dos...and I do mean all. 

Rho got her dissertation research approved and is ready to start...as soon as she gets any participants and Noinar starts his internship on Friday. 

 

Promotions

There are currently no promotions, and I know several of you have toons and alts that are not at the right rank. I am going to work to fix the roster over the next few weeks. Unfortunately Evon's computer took a nap (hence why she has been MIA) so they haven't been getting done, but I will work on correcting things and keep you updated. Once I "fix" things if I missed them please let me know. Also, if you notice that you have alts that don't have your main's name in the comments please let me know. 

How do you get promoted? Guild promotions are based on your join date.  In order to claim your rank there are two requirements: 1)You must claim your characters by signing up on the guild website and 2) Have an authenticator attached to your account.  For more information, please click here.

Guildie of the Week

Person

People didn't really nominate others in the last fifteen weeks if you can believe that, but I do know several of you that did wonderful and amazing things for each other. Having spent some time outside of the guild this last week really reminds me why I love what we have here. Thank you all for being so awesome. (p.s. nominate people). 

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

Guess your Guildmate will return next week. (What? don't look at me like that...I will write another one next week >.>) 

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

No One has been sending me these either, now maybe it was because there was no newsletter being published, or maybe you don't like gold. But, with that Bronty mount on the horizon, who wouldn't like a little extra cha-ching? Ya know you do...so when you complete a dungeon that nets us guild gold send rho a mail and it will enter you a chance to win gold at the end of each week! 

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

As we wrap up the expansion we don't want to overstock the guild bank, but we are going to continue to need raiding supplies, so if people have food, potion, and enchant materials please donate. If you want to get entered into the monthly drawings for big loot prizes send your donations to Dancingbee, if ye care not at all about fun and prizes drop stuff straight into the guild bank. 

Things we typically could always use more of: all flowers (especially starlight rose), leyblood, gamy ribs, runescale koi, highmountain salmon, barracuda, stormray, and bacon. 

Raid News

Raids! I love Raids! I love our Raid team! What I don't like? Hmm RNG and Coven, yes, those are the things I don't like. I went back to look at the raid news from the last newsletter...and yeah...we had only just gotten our first heroic Eonar kill...so a whole heck of progress there. I mean Eonar is the boss we do on easy night now. Only three more to go really. And, as much as I am hating Coven, we are making progress. And this guild hasn't met anything our perseverance and determination couldn't beat :D

In other raid news, I have posted the raids for June (yeah, I don't know when that month came around, but it did). There is a slight change in the scheduling. Not days or times, but what we are running. This week will be the last scheduled alt run so we can focus on finishing heroic. Only reason we are leaving this week the same is I don't like to change things without giving people notice (and I know all of you like alts for some weird reason I can't comprehend). So, starting next week we will do Heroic Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with Argus and a fresh heroic for tier pieces on Friday. 

Remember that as we get to the end we will do better, be stronger and more successful the more consistent we can be as a team (real life permitting of course) so do the best you can to show up.

 

Lastly, as we look toward the new expansion we are going to have to start (soon--not today, but soon--think in a newsletter or two) about what mains people are expecting to play next expansion. So start mulling it over and keep an eye out for my post. 

Congratulations

For every achievement and accomplishment that was missed I am deeply sorry and feel morally responsible that you didn't get the recognition you so rightly deserve for your awesomeness. Let me take this brief moment to bask in the glory that you are. *basks in collective glory* OUCH I think I got burnt...too much glory too much! But still, many congratulations and keep those achievements and accomplishments coming I will try to be more attentive. But, if you have a major one come across let me know so we can recognize you proper. 

Reminders

~Sign up for June Raids~

~Be Awesome~

~Tell Rho when good/fun stuff happens~

~Think about BfA mains~

~Maybe grab a pen and paper because this list is getting long~
