Dargaard Knights only accepts members into its ranks that are of similar personalities, goals and values to its own. All of our members support and follow our core guild rules and anyone who cannot, is removed. Our core rules and values have served us well and continue to be the guiding principles behind moving the guild forward. Our core rules include, but are not limited to:
Guild First: We expect all members to ensure that all actions they take are done in the mindset of 'guild first'. Anything a member does reflects on the overall guild image and on all fellow members. We expect members to only take actions that reflect positively on the guild image that we have worked very hard to build and maintain.
We recruit the PERSON not the TOON. We look for good PEOPLE not only a toon that meets a specific set of requirements.
It is not permitted to relay any information outside the guild, for any reason, at any time. Dargaard Knights is a private gaming organization. We do not share information with the public except through official channels and officially sanctioned outlets. Therefore no member should reveal any information, no matter how minor they may think it is, outside the guild.
Participate In Guild Events. Rifts, Raids, Events and other in game activities occur all the time. You are expected to take place in as many of them as possible. We understand people have lives and cannot live within the online world and that is ok. But if you are online, and we are having a guild event of some sort, you need to be there and participating in it.
Leadership roles in Dargaard Knights are decided based on demonstrated ability as well as the need for a leader in a particular spot. You can be assured that your leaders are working hard to make the game more fun for you. While the reason behind every decision may not always be apparent at the moment an order is issued, all orders from officers need to be immediately followed. If errors are made, they should be reported to Takhissis/Soulshadow/Soulraiser where they will be dealt with and, if needed, changes made to the officer team. Absent those changes, all officers should be listened to as though it was Takhissis issuing the order.
We are a TEAM of FRIENDS. Backing up your guildmates is expected because they will do the same for you. Dargaard Knights members understand that sometimes personal character sacrifice is needed for the team to complete a mission. We dont view it as personal sacrifice, however, because we are helping out a friend and that is more important than loot or pixels on a screen. Games come and go. Dargaard Knights and the friendships within it, remain.
Members who cannot follow core rules and standards, are removed from the guild.
These standards go hand in hand with our core guild rules but they bear repeating so all future members understand what we expect from members. Those standards of conduct include, but are not limited to:
Members may not use cheats or exploits.
Upholding of all guild values and rules is required of all members. There are no exceptions whether you are a member for 10 days or 10 years. All members must maintain the values of the guild.
Members need to behave in a mature, professional, team focused manner. Self focused, loot focused, immature people will not be tolerated.
Make friends in the guild. At our core we are a Team Of Friends. So make friends. Those friendships make us strong.
Any issues with guild policies are brought directly to Takhissis/Soulshadow/Soulraiser, 1 on 1, via mail. Publicly bashing or complaining about them is not tolerated.
Personal attacks on other members is not permitted. Handle issues with another player 1 on 1, in a mature professional way. Seek an officers help if needed but do not personally attack other members.
Backstabbing, looting, stealing from, scamming or otherwise harming other members is not permitted. It all goes back to our core value that we are a team of friends.
Profanity.. sexual content.. and obscene content should be kept to a minimum. We realize sometimes things get a little "blue," but keep it brief and in good fun.
If a guild officer tells you to do something, do it immediately. Do not argue or complain to them and definitely do not get nasty with them or removal will occur and you can explain to Takhissis/Soulshadow/Soulraiser why you had to behave that way and should be let back in.
Dungeons: Need VS Greed. If it is an upgrade for your main class on the toon you are playing, you click need. If its a BoE item, and your alt could really use it, it would be greed. If your unsure, ask the party leader or an officer.
10-20 Man Raids: Master Looter. You are allowed one winning roll per raid. When an item drops, you first roll goes to the spec you came in as. If no one can use it, you can roll for an off-spec, (this still counts as your one roll.) If no one wants it for an off spec, it becomes a greed roll, and anyone is eligible and it does not count as your one win.
Raid Rifts: Master Looter. Generally, we are running a specific rift for a specific drop for a specific person, so that may be on reserve for them if they provided the lure, otherwise, same as Raid rules.
If during any of the above you win a roll and change your mind, feel free to trade your roll to someone that lost, it will count as their roll, and you will get a new one. If there are any loot discrepancies, please see an officer for mediation.
Alts VS Mains: Someone on their main should always get loot priority over someone playing an alt, when their main also raids with us. In the odd case of someone with mains that raid in another guild, mains in our guild will have loot priority, then alts in our guild, followed by alts of members in another guild, and lastly PUGS. As always, loot distribution changes may be made at the discretion of the raid leader.
The above are our general loot rules. For progression raiding, we have switched to a Suicide Kings list, but they still mostly apply.
