Starting a newbie friendly guild - need advice

6 posts in this topic

Greetings!

 

I'm starting a newbie friendly guild, now that I have A LITTLE more experience with the game.

The guilds at my realm never really talk at the guild chat, never really interact with anyone... So I decided to solve this problem myself.

The problem is... I'm a huge noob. Despite playing since MoP, I still have trouble with the game, since most of the time I did WorldPvP and... nothing much really.

 

So I need a few tips, for example:

How do I make my guildmates interact more?

How can I make everyone feel good at my guild?

Do professions help with the recent 110s? Like Blacksmithing?

 

Thank you so much for your attention!

I don't think you can *make* your guildies interact more. While classic fans will tell you WoW has killed the social part of the game, it's really just that people have stopped being interested in that, regardless of the game's evolution.

How to have an active guild then ?

Well, be active by yourself, first of all.

Create multiple events that attract all kinds of people, talk with your guildies, be careful about WHO you invite in (that last one is for the "feel good" part).

I don't think there is a miracle formula for that kind of stuff : just go recruit, and be social, the ones that want that will follow you, and the ones that don't will leave by themselves.

 

For professions, i don't think they're really needed anymore for new 110s. They may have helped at the start of the game, but now there is lots of much more interesting ways to catch up (and more efficient too).

Hallo, Dabria here...
"How many GM does it take it to change a lightbulb?" (Answer at the end)

Events or a Discord:

You can put up events that will gather your guildies so you can have more time and memories together.
With this you'll start trusting each other more and soon you'll have a little group of close guidies, some you'll probably also start talking to, on discord for an example. This way you can start the chat with your little group and meanwhile your guild is growing people start joining in on the chats, also remember you can always try making them join (Asking how their day have been, chatting about something they can relate or help with, or third of all, do a transmog or achievement run or something else that they can join in on)

So start off easy, make some friend/guildies that can help kicking conversations off. Then at one point, you'll have 50+ people online and a never-ending conversation about thunderfury, hehe. The discord could also help people chatting outside the game so they become better friend in-game also this way someone is not online can come online if something that they wanna participate in happens in the guild.

Professions:

Don't see this as a thing anymore. It really where you need anything. But simply take something as enchanting, so you can disenchant things to chaos crystals. Maybe you can sort it out and give it to the enchanter that has 800. He can then make enchants people can take in the guild or you can simply sell your materials. 

Else something like herbing or mining, so you can earn even more gold.

Also, alchemy is good, especially if you raid much. Here you get 1 free hour on your flask, so it's really good and make your flask last longer = saving more of your gold.

But professions aren't really a thing anymore. Most you can buy or most is just there to earn gold. 

Questing, raid or dungeons:

Know what your a doing, so you can help people with your class, and just classes in general (bit only, not expert level, else say they should go to icy veins - self-promotion) Know how roles go, what a healer should focus on, whats important as tank and what DPSing is really about... and most important CCs and interrupts. 

How different bosses in raid and dungeons are done correctly. How each role fits in and tacs. Here you can create events that can help people either getting a guild grp or learn how to. You can also make mythic+, so you all get a +10 (soon +15) done. 
Here you can also place events so you can finish all of the 0/7 Legion dungeons, 0/5 mythic + and 0/1 raid in the guild, so you can earn gold for the guild. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope it help and I give you all the good luck with your guild in the future. If you have any more question or any question to my answer, please submit them to this thread or via PM.

Answer: "None, it's working as intended" ... Haha, good day out there.

Planning events is key! Then I would say making sure you can lead by knowing the mechanics of fights, how to help people get ready for dungeons and raids. It sounds like you already are, but make sure people feel helped and welcomed.

Thank you so much, guys.

I began tanking just so I could help my guild, and I have never tanked before.

Last night I was kicked off a pug raid when I died ONCE, and I was so fucking depressed... But then I found another pug with a discord, and people gave me directions (it makes all the difference in the world, even though I knew the fights from guides), and we rocked! They added me and told me they would call me again. I'm so happy!

(I know this is off topic, I just felt like sharing it)

 

 

Anyway, my guild is growing really fast. People began using the Discord, altough most do not. 

I have raided once with them, but we were only able to take down the first Antorus boss... :(

The DPS was too low, I'm thinking of ways to help them increase it...

 

Anyway thanks again guys!

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 6/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      Healer: We will consider adding an experienced Holy Paladin.
      DPS: We are looking for DPS with the gear/experience to contribute immediately. Will consider all specs. Bonus points for good healing offspec.

      <Continuum> - [Chamber of Aspects][H] are recruiting!
      Current Progress: 4/11 Mythic Antourus
      We are a close knit and friendly community with an aim to push content. To our members we offer a mature environment, where people from all backgrounds can come together and play.
        We are looking for dedicated and reliable players that want to play the best of their ability and succeed while enjoying the game. We have an active Discord community and chatty members that play various games together! As well as raiders, we also accept social players that just want to play in an active environment with a good atmosphere.
      Looking towards Battle for Azeroth, we will be raiding as soon as possible and aiming for curves and mythic content. We do frequent Mythic+ dungeons as a guild as well as classic raids, older tiers and achievement runs.
      Our Leadership team is made up of many long time players that have extensive experience in all aspects of the game, especially in raiding.
      What we expect from our raiders:
      -Preparation: Know your class / spec well and come to raid prepared with knowledge of tactics and boss abilities - Raid  awareness is important.
      -Attendance: We ask our raiders to be reliable and the ability to have high raid attendance is essential. 
      -Attitude: Be patient, progression raiding can be both time consuming and frustrating. Don't blame people as it won't  really help anyone and be able to admit mistakes.
      Raiders can expect a focused raiding atmosphere, especially during progression content. We show NO favoritism, everyone must perform.
      When applying to the guild your logs will be taken into consideration and a trial period will apply. 
      We use Discord and the ability to listen in raids is mandatory - a working mic is beneficial but not essential. We are an English speaking guild, so a basic knowledge of English is required.
      We are always on the look out for new raiders - all roles and specs are considered!
      (It is an advantage for Healers to have a DPS offspec)

      Raid Schedule:
      Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday - Start 20.00 - Finish 23.00 Server time
      (Grouping at 19.45)
      Optional; Saturday - Start 20.00 - Finish 23.00 Server time
      (Grouping at 19.45)
      Always on the look out for new raiders - all roles and specs considered!
