Starting a newbie friendly guild - need advice

Recommended Posts

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!

      Any social and friendly person who wants to join us for kicks and giggles is welcome. Just poke any of our officers online and you will get an invite for a social spot (no raiding spot).
      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 80% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      CURRENTLY:
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 4/8 in The Eternal Palace mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!

      Guild Name: <Dead Naga Storage>
      Faction: Horde
      Realm & Realm Type: PvP (EST) [Exact server is still undecided due to streamers and quick filling up of servers. We will know for sure by Sunday 8/25 2 days before launch]
      Play style: Hardcore, Semi-Hardcore, Casual (Casual recruitment may change later)
      Focus: Both HC Raid progression, and HC WPvP+PvP progression. Need to fill multiple 40m raid teams and multiple PvP teams.

      Class Needs:
      We are still recruiting all players of all kinds atm. We encourage you to play what you want and what is fun for you. This is just a list of the classes we want and need for our guild and to have for our core Raid and core PvP teams. (As of now we need ALL classes, this list is expected to change as we recruit more)

      • Druid – any spec
      • Hunter – any spec
      • Mage – any spec
      • Priest – any spec
      • Rogue - any spec
      • Shaman – any spec
      • Warlock – any spec
      • Warrior – any spec

      Introduction: 
      Dead Naga Storage is a guild build specifically for the launch of WoW Classic. GET EXCITED! We were a very powerful and progressive filled guild back in the original Vanilla days in 2005. We have great guild leadership experience and Raid and PvP leadership experience as well as BG shot calling since 2005 – present day. We are a PvE-focused progression and PvP inspired guild interested in filling our teams with dedicated members who are willing to be available and dedicate themselves to learn their roles and characters for our core 40m Raid and WPvP groups. We plan on having quite a few raid and pvp teams set up within a couple weeks or months. Our members are expected to clearly and consistently put forth effort to be as knowledgeable as possible on their class, BiS, be mature, and skilled players. We want you to be competitive!! Our leaders have a lot of experience in clearing major raids like MC, BWL, Onyx, Zul Gurub, AQ and Naxx so you know you’re joining a great guild. MC we will be going in at week 1 of raid launch! We also want our members, during the beginning of the launch, to help with grouping up for quick and easy dungeon clears and group quests or ganking help. We are first and foremost a family here and protect each other!

      Goals: Ultimately, our goal is to efficiently complete all raid content that WoW Classic has to offer! NO EXCEPTIONS! We aim to keep a lean, tight-knit, fun, and mature guild we can all call home and be proud of! When we are not raiding, be expected to push high-tier PvP ranks through coordinated team in BG’s and WPvP! Be ready day 1! Once we have a significant amount at level cap, we will start gearing together for MC clears and halting Alliance groups at the gates! NOTE: We will also be forming Devilsaur Mafia and control the loot for our guild! WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR, AND DO NOT WANT ANY SELF SERVING PLAYERS… THIS IS TEAM BASED PROGRESSION GUILD!

      PvE – What we are looking for specifically: Solid players who are interested in pushing content while also being afforded the option of a flexible raid schedule. We want people who want to be a part of a community. We are looking currently for Class Leaders, Raid Leaders, and PvP Leaders for our multiple groups. At first lets focus on leveling up and having fun! We will be in MC on week 1 or 2 of launching. We are currently accepting players of all classes and roles. ATM our raid times will be projected around 8:00 p.m. EST (times may change accordingly)

      PvP – What we are looking for specifically: Serious players who are looking to push ranks very early on and either know the Honor system or be willing to learn it. Accepting players of all classes and roles currently. We are actively looking for PvP/Premade Leaders as well.

      Loot System: Loot Council system.

      We are a group of experienced WoW players, who have experienced for the most part raiding at the highest level (mostly from TBC onwards) and some are IRL friends. We’re mainly looking for experienced players/players who want to clear all of the endgame content, bants are also a must (but you need to be serious from time to time). We aren't the type of guild that will only take the classes that will be dealing the top damage, because all specs were viable for the most part, the only exception is for tanks ( only warriors ).
       
      What we offer
       
      • A social, family frie- insert we don’t do that meme here. Expect bants, we also like our salt , we know where to draw the line thought. It’s just clean fun, it’s just bants maaaate, dont worry about it.
      • Mainly a PvE guild, but we’re up for Bgs and world PvP/capital raids, etc.
      • We can help with classes/builds, offer advice and such.
      • A highly efficient loot council.
      What we expect
       
      • Be over 18 (and somewhat mature )
      • Be able to take criticism.
      • Know your class and rotations (you don’t have to fully min-max, but we expect you to have consumables, enchants. )
      • Good written/spoken English.
      • Good raid attendance (but we also acknowledge real-life problems, so there’s that) • Announce if you can make it to events/raids/whatever.
      • Try and contribute to the guild in whatever way you can.
      • Specing and playing in a way which maximises the raid's the dps and not just yours (using curse if told on warlock, not using debuffs if asked to....)
      • Dank memes.
      Raid Schedule
      • Currently we decided on Monday/Wednesday starting 8pm to 11pm (breaks included) but we’re open to discussion. (We will most likely hold a vote before we start raiding).
      •We might add a 3rd raid day by phase 3.
      Apply by contacting one of them
      Sunderai#21123 (on btag) or Sunderai#3299 (discord)
      Azkaael#6081 (discord)

      [The Battle Tavern] / Horde / Myzrael / Semi-Hardcore / 6 - 9pm PST / LootCouncil
      =Introduction=
      The Battle Tavern is recruiting semi-hardcore players for World of Warcraft: Classic. We are looking to fill out our raiding roster, but also accepting players for all types of content, including serious PvPers, avid gold goblins, and casual friends & family. We are comprised of all sorts of players, from Gladiator arena champions to Cutting Edge raiders. Most of us are Vanilla Veterans, including our leaders, Kaiwin & Duloc. We are well versed in its content, including the completion of AQ40 and most of Naxxramas, and all of us are excited to get back in and crush the content all over again! Prepare for Adventure!
      =Raid Schedule=
      Thursday – 6-9pm (PST) (This raid night will be streamed live to Twitch)
      Friday – 6-9pm (PST)
      (Please be online and ready to raid at least 10 minutes before this time for invites)
      =Member Expectations=
      Raiding is serious business, at least to us. We expect all raiders to maintain a semi-hardcore mindset during raids, with emphasis on player responsibility, including positioning, knowledge of their class and raid mechanics. We also ask that you come prepared with a positive and patient mindset. Consumables will not be required until we reach higher difficulty raids (at least AQ40). Raiders will be required to be at least 16 years old. Tensions can get heated while raiding, but we all want the same thing, to kill the boss and get fat loots. Loot will be handled by a lootcouncil consisting of officers with a BiS list for every spec. Please no drama, no toxicity, and no raging. We are laid back, jovial, and want people to have fun, but we also expect all those who join to behave accordingly. 
      We hope to dive into the steamy pools of Molten Core as soon as possible, and our core group will be more than willing to get you raid ready.
      If you find yourself prepared for adventure, click the link below to apply!
