Loot System

We use variations of our loot system for each raid team to reflect their level of raiding. Please ensure you're up to date with the team specific loot systems described on the team information pages.

Promotion/Demotion
If you feel that your current level of raiding is not suited to your personal expectations and/or ability (this could either be too high or too low); please contact your current raid management team, and they will put your case forward for promotion/demotion. In most cases this can be an easy swap but for players in key roles (i.e. tanks/healers) this may take a little longer. Being open to multiple specs and/or roles can potentially make the transition a smoother process. If the raid management decides that your expectations and/or ability are not suited to the team, then they will discuss with you a plan of action so that you can remain in the team. We don’t like demoting players from teams but sometimes it is necessary to achieve the goals of the team and the guild as a whole. If you have been demoted from a team and want to challenge the decision you can approach the guild council to organise a meeting with yourself and the current raid management.

Additional Notes
If a player has an issue with any rules and/or tactics during raid times, please leave it until after the raid has finished. Trying to deal with /w about tactics and/or loot whilst organising and leading a raid team is an unneeded complication.
