1  Staff / GM / Dev Applications / Re: Hectorx/Sheyliny/Methy GM Application. on: June 17, 2014, 05:21:45 pm
Good luck on your application Hector, for what its worth as a general member of the server -  I am vouching for your application.

Been around you in various guilds and situations for quite some time now, and always had a good vibe about you. I dont really understand the arguments some people have made against you - in terms of gearing up alts and all that. People are different, more active, less active, working for different goals. Ive always felt you have worked for your goals. The fights youve been in seems more personal(from both sides mind u) than rational in my mind.

Activity is not all, but you have always been helpful and friendly to people in all situations where one would expect a person to keep his wits. Your way of leading raids would in my mind not be a valid argument for a GM application, behavior of a GM vs. a raidleader is two extremely different things imo.

I have no doubt you would be a fair and trustworthy GM.

kjør på med et norsk guild, som Axemen var på Ravencrest EU

Er det noen som har trua på at en slik Norsk guild kan fungere på en server som denne?

Hehe, ikke sjans
3  Community / Guild Recruitment / <Unique> is recruiting! on: February 24, 2013, 02:30:18 pm
We are recruiting

For the past months now we've been raiding on a regular basis. Though as a guild on this server, recruitment is hard due to the low population! For every good recruit we get, another member grows tired of waiting.

We still manage to keep our weekly 3-4 raids up, and our current progress is:

Molten Core: 10/10
Blackwing Lair: 8/8
Temple of Ahn'Qiraj: 5/9

Our future plans are further progress on Twin Emperors, and Onyxia (if we can do it with the bugged whelps). We are raiding weekly on thursdays, fridays and sundays - and usually a MC on saturdays. Mostly european guys in the guild, and we raid servertime @ 18.30 - 22/23.00 GMT+1.

We are recruiting mature, steady and patient players. Gear is not neccesarily that important, but it helps. We mostly need supportive classes, as our dpsers usually are doing decent.

I can not emphasize enough how important it is that the new recruits are patient! As the recruitment is very hard on the server, we need ppl that are focused to progress with us! Be ready for wipes and yelling! :-)

5  Class Discussion / Rogue / Re: Rogue Spreadsheet on: January 08, 2013, 04:20:11 pm
The rogue section in general seems quite inactive, barely been a word here from when I first joined 4 months ago. But, found some old spreadsheets so figured I could share them, since they are public anyways.

Obviously they are both combat - as there are no other possible builds that are stronger PvE wise.

Combat sword spreadsheet: DOWNLOAD!

Combat dagger spreadsheet: DOWNLOAD!

Both of these spreadsheets are made by Valar & Chalon, which resided on Lightbringer back in the days. This spreadsheet simulates the theoretical DPS output of Combat Swords & Daggers in a raid setting, based on the inputs of gear, enchant, and buff choices. It must be noted that theoretical DPS output and actual DPS output will vary for many reasons, often dependant on the fight in question. The DPS output is what would happen over a long duration in a fight where you can consistently and indefinitely attack from behind. The main goal of these spreadsheet is to be a tool to help see how various gear choices will affect your overall DPS.

When you open it (excel sheet), you will find a few tabs in the bottom bar, with the required information and such.
6  Class Discussion / Rogue / Re: How to level lockpicking? on: January 08, 2013, 04:07:12 pm
Just a "quickie" here. When you do your lvl 20 rogue quest as alliance atleast(guess same goes for horde, cant recall), you go to a tower southeast in Westfall. On the top floor of this level you find a chest that after the quest is done is still there. You can use the lockpicking skill from your spellbook to level your lp from 1-170.

From 170-225 you have a few choices, one guide sent me off to Zoram Strand, coast in Ashenvale, and seek out boxes there. These are quite rare tbh, so I'd prefer the Angermaw (or was it Angor?) fortress in badlands. On the map it is situated directly south of the Uldaman dungeon. Some black skin dwarves around lvl 35 or 40 or something. All around the fortress there are 7-10 boxes u can lockpick. Quite some time for the respawn, you could check that up on any db I guess. Easily from 170 to 225 if you are patient, and you dont have to seek them out like on Zoram strand.

From 225 to 300 lockboxes is a fast way to do it, just open everything your guildmates have to offer, or simply offer your service in the worldchat. One little tip: When having multiple lockboxes in your inventory - quite a few will bug out and end up empty/just dissapear. (Just like when you disenchant the same kind of crafted tailoring/lw etc items)

Well, i'm thinking of how popular inquisitor is , why not make a second raid group? i mean i'm sure if people  were given the chance to join inq they'd leave their guild asap to join. BTW is anyone else experienceing login issues?

As you hijacked this post abit (from what I could see by briefly reading through it all) I feel allowed to continue your post abit:P

At the moment Inquisitor is (from what I can see) the only serious raiding guild on alliance side. As a member of Unique though, I can surely say we are trying our very best to manage another raiding guild in addition to Inquisitor.

I guess I am one of the few ppl that were "sad" when Prominence disbanded and left - though I can't base that on anything but trolls and people in world chat talking. Personally PvE progress is the most important thing ingame for myself, and it has been as of retail release in EU. Competition has always been the backbone for myself and my experiences, and getting server firsts are always something I eager to achieve - and raiders alike (atleast I think thats the case, not everyone is a loothogger). On VG Inquisitor is superior to us, and we wont ever get any server firsts (atleast not as the server is atm). But with prominence which was an equal guild progresswise it gave us competition. I believe firmly that helped people read more try more and stay longer in raids - just to get that little advantage Smiley

However with Prominence out of the question, we got some benefits in forms of players. Many of them are good players too, so it helps alot.

I am pretty new on this server, only been around for about 3 months now. We have cleared MC and tried a few times on Nefarian. We have tried AQ40 one time, and cleared up to Skeram. I believe we could down him at a good night with a good setup, but those nights are so rare.

Good setups is essentially our biggest problem. We have quite a few good and dedicated - all around active - players. However, we also have quite a few people that seemingly have no previous experience with 40 man raiding - or having problems communicating or understanding basic teamplay. Obviously dedication to actually know their class / read tactics / get consumables, is a problem aswell for some people.

What we are working on atm, and have been the past 2 months, is to help those players the best we can. At the same time we try to be realistic, and boot those who either show no progress, or no will to learn - or simply doesnt want to communicate for different reasons.

At the same time, we have oldtimers. Good people! Unfortunately *most* of them are unreliable for a progressing guild(meaning they are not likely to stay active for a very long time). We really need steady players that wants to join us get the progress we need to keep the motivation up for the general members. Without a proper setup its hard to have that continuous progress. Last but not least, with 20 ppl, its fairly hard to raid when most people are maximum geared with 1-2 T2 pieces, and rest T1 and blues.

When we started progressing in BWL, we still had _alot_ of players standing aroud in green gear and even gray pieces, no enchants, no consumables. I dont have to explain why that is a problem.

Sorry for the lack of structure in this post, got abit out of hand.

Back to the issue, getting good players. We are getting more and more good players, but the problem is it takes a long time. This being a low population server, good players doesnt come aroud too often - atleast not good PvE wise and dedication to the guild. When they do, we try to take them in with a warm welcome (atleast I feel I do!), but a slow progress is not something everyone settles down with, and people go inactive or leave to do PvP / join Inquisitor.

So problem in short, we have a fairly good core of raiders (growing every month), and the rest of the raid are often people that does "ok", but isnt as reliable as we'd wish them to be. Leaving without notifying/not showing up, not enchanting their gear, not reading tactics and so on. The better half is carrying the lazy half, if we manage to fill a whole raid. The steady players obviously get tired from these raids.

Lately we've also had a problem filling our raids. Some have left due to exams, some due to the holidays, but the problem in general is people arent coming back. We'll see how it goes next year Smiley

Inquisitor as I see it, is not a problem for us. I totally understand people leaving us for Inquisitor - and I still have respect for those players. I also can not do anything but respect Inquisitor for doing so good, on a lowpop server. I just can't imagine how hard they must have fought to get those good people stay for such a long time, and how they are still raiding and working as a team. I had the pleasure of joining Inqui in Aq40 this weekend, where we were about 10-15 Unique players teaming up. Got a peek on Cthun, and killed the bosses before him (cept for Visc ofc). Personally I havent done this since retail, and it was great fun.

However I am very glad some people chose to stay in Unique. We want to progress with our own team, in our own speed(well, atm we dont have a choice regarding speed). It will take longer than on a regular high populated server, but in time I hope it would be worth my time. We need to work out some things with the structure inguild - though we've set some steps and guides already on our own forum to try and figure out what would help us best. But from what I can tell myself, we just need time. Time and patience. We will get more people, even though some will leave, and some day I hope we have a full raid - with dedicated and members able to understand the reality in raiding vanilla. There are very few "hard" bosses from my experience, but with a team of 15 and 15-25 additional individualists -  its hard

Takker, tenker jeg får kjøre på videre da. Human rogue kalt Searinox. Blir litt feil, siden jeg hadde UD rogue som main de første 3 årene, men okei, fått nok av PvP Smiley

Så, hvor aktive er dere? Ser at det er minimalt med aktivitet siste par mnds. Uansett hvordan går denne serveren PvE wise? Mulig å få groups / raids her i det hele tatt? Hvor mye krever de mest aktive guildene som raider?

Min første char her er en human rogue, men mest for å teste ut serveren. Spilte tidligere undead rogue som mainchar - men begynner å bli noen år siden. Starta ved release på serveren Burning Blade, men migrerte deretter til Grim Batol (med 80% av serveren), da den åpna.

Traff 300 days played i september 2006, så fant ut at jeg burde roe ned.. Har alltid likt Vanilla best, og er litt morro å ha honorfarming muligheten igjen Smiley Husker jeg og noen til farma WSG i 3 mnd, mens vi ventet på AQ. Hvordan er standings på denne serveren?

Får se litt hva som skjer fremover, eksamen neste uke men muligheter etter den. Horde vs alliance? PvE vs PvP?
