Back to the raiding again Horridon down 2/13 now!
Wipe Club (WC) proudly claims the position of being the oldest guild on Boulderfist, EU. WC has consistently been the top guild on alliance side (or among the top guilds) since the early days of vanilla pve raiding. Wipe Club is the original "Wipe Club" and has two achievements named after our famous Onyxia raid wipe: "More dots!" and "Many Whelps! Handle it!". Throughtout wotlk, WC had The Unpolluted Universe (TUU) as their sister guild and we merged at the end of wotlk. Although you will still find the hot-tempered enthusiasm heard in the onyxia raid wipe in some of our raids, we have generally chilled out quite a bit since vanilla.
Today Wipe Club is a social raiding guild which houses both semi-hardcore and casual raiders. We are designed for players interested in raiding and working for a decent level of progress. The majority of our players have real life commitments which we understand and are designed to fit around.
We are a close-knit and supportive community of ca. 20 active raiders who both take raiding seriously and also like to have a good laugh together.
We are an international guild with players aged between 17 and 46 from all over Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Our common language is English.
We have many different raid days, so our members can always find a time that’s right for them: Mon-Thur 19.30-22.30. We expect members to sign up for a minimum of two raids a week.
Scroll further down to see news and guild rules.
1. We treat each other with kindness and respect.
2. We try to help each other improve.
3. No pugging any raids mentioned under “guild info” for main chars.
4. English is the only language used in all general guild, raid and vent channels. Other languages may be used in “say” or our language-specific channels.
5. We mostly use our guild bank for progress items and enchants. However, we do have two common tabs open for all members to use for levelling professions, etc.
6. One month inactivity equals removal from the guild.
7. We do not accept any types of drama, whether in guild, or in any other channel within our realm. Whether you are Social rank or an Officer, you are expected to act with respect towards everyone you interact with. You will not use any type of offensive or discriminating chat anywhere in the game. It is okay to joke around from time to time; it is not okay to harass anyone for any reason.
8. Raiding members may keep their active alts of all levels in the guild. Non-raiders may have alts at max. level only.
Rules for raiders
Check your dkp before the raid begins: http://www.gsdkp.com/news.php?acc=21255
1. We use the ingame calendar for raid invites. Please answer your invites in a timely fashion. You will be penalized for not showing up and on time for a raid that you have accepted, so sign up as tentative if you are unsure you can make it. You can also use the calendar on wow armory to respond to your raid inv or change your status. Please stay online if you are put on standby, raid spots often open up and you can earn dkp as standby if you inform the raid leader at the beginning of the raid and remain online for the duration of the raid.
2. All members are required to bring consumables to every raid. This means sufficient flasks, potions and food buffs for a full raid, every raid. Even if you are not required to use them. Being prepared is key.
3. Everyone must listen to the instructions of the raid leader and foucs 100% on doing the best that they can. We also try to be pro-active - thinking outside the box and not always waiting to be asked to do something. We think ahead and prepare ourselves. This includes studying tactics for the encounters before the raid.
4. We are all required to maintain a positive attitude at all times, as wipes will happen. When someone is not performing well or our tactics are not working, we try to problem solve instead of blaming each other. We accept constructive criticism in a mature fashion in an atmosphere of mutual respect working together for the common good.
5. You should be eager to raid, to learn, to wipe in a highly competitive environment and you must farm for your own consumables, reputation and whatever gear might be necessary.
6. We do not complain, moan, whine or cry if you miss a raid, don’t get an item, or have to sit out. We do our best to make sure that everyone gets to raid and gear up. But there are good reasons when we make a replacement during a raid or put someone on standby.
7. You must check your dkp before the raid begins. All raid chat and vent are cleared for the bidding on the loot.
8. When you accept a raid invite you are committing to three hours of raiding. You may not leave the raid early unless the raid leader calls it. If you can come for only part of the time, then sign up as tentative and let the raid leader know what your time limitations are.
9. You must show up on time. Showing up on time means being online at least 10 minutes before the raid begins and accepting at the latest 6 minutes before raid time. You must also transport yourself to the raid location and be there at raid start time at the very latest. You are required to be in Ventrilo as soon as you join the raid and remain there for the full duration of the raid. If you do not do these things, you may receive minus dkp - and you may lose your raid spot to a backup who does.
10. If you are going to be late or miss a raid, you are required to inform us via forum post, or by sending an in-game mail to your officer, out of courtesy, so that we can do our best to plan the evening's raid without delaying our start time.
11. Vent is a place for leaders to instruct and inform during raids. When you are in the channel, you are required to listen and let the leaders discuss strategies. Please feel free to ask questions or make comments before the boss encounters. Trash clearing time may be used for “fun”.
12. No going afk during raids. There will be one short break in the middle of the raid. Going afk outside of that break may lead to you getting minus dkp.
13. The rule with dkp and mains/alts is this: You earn dkp and bid with it per player. Remember that if you are considering changing your main's spec to it's offspec, you must contact one of the gms. Alts may do as they wish with their main/offspec - but they may not announce a spec change right before a raid or during a raid. A char's main spec is the one listed first in guild note. If a player wishes to change his alt to his main, he needs to clear this with a gm.
14. We use the dkp system to distribute loot. Our loot priority is:
1. Main char Main spec Correct armor class (i.e. cloth for clothy)
2. Main char Main spec Wrong armor class (i.e. cloth for mail user)
3. Main char Off spec Correct armor class + Alt char Main spec Correct armor class
4. Main char Off spec Wrong armor class + Alt char Main spec Wrong armor class
5. Alt char Off spec Correct armor class
6. Alt char Off spec Wrong armor class
When and if we are in a situation where a certain function (tank/healers/dps) needs gearing up in order for us to progress, we will give loot priority to those chars until they have the necessary gear for us to progress.
