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!

      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 6/9 in Battle of Dazar'alor 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: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:
      Ranged DPS: High: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver Monk
       
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
