This section covers rules of conduct that apply to everyone, and are designed to make our progression through Endgame as smooth, seamless and efficient as possible. We're all in this to have some fun and get some Phat Lootz, and running our raids in an efficient, focused manner allows us to succeed much more quickly.
Raids are scheduled from 8PM to 11PM EST on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday unless noted otherwise in the event description in the in-game calendar. All raiders signed up for the run should make themselves available during those times.
Occasionally a Monday will be used for a raid day.
Raiders need to be online 15 minutes prior to scheduled raid time.
Raiders need to be repaired, and ready for summon with all their consumables, food, water, reagents, etc. 15 minutes prior to scheduled raid time, and ready for summon 10 minutes prior to raid time.
Raid group invites will come 15 minutes prior to raid time. If you are not online and ready 10 minutes prior to raid time you may be rotated out for a sub at the discretion of the Raid Leader.
Subs should also be online and ready for summon during scheduled raid times in the event that they are needed.
Discord is to be treated as a "combat channel". Unnecessary and idle chat during combat is not tolerated.
Combat logs will be available on Warcraftlogs at the end of the raid.
Nothing will ever be pulled until it is marked by the Raid Leader or Assistant Raid Leaders except in certain circumstances. We will make every effort to mark consistently and kill in order every time.
When clearing trash on multiple pulls, when a target goes down the Raid Leader or Assistant Raid Leaders will assign the tank a new target.
When learning new content a Main Tank will be the first one through every door and around every corner except as designated by the Raid Leader.
DPS needs to give the Main Tanks the opportunity to build aggro prior to starting in on every mob, every time.
Raiders need to take the time to visit appropriate channels to learn new boss fights before pulling them.
Raiders must maintain a positive attitude. Complaints will not be tolerated, whining will not be tolerated, and generally bad attitudes will not be tolerated.
When learning new content, there may be discussion of strategy. The Raid Leaders will listen to every suggestion and then decide on a course of action for the raid. Everyone's input is valued and will be heard, but a Raid is only a Democracy when the Raid Leader calls for a vote.
If you are inebriated during a raid, you will be removed from the raid and not be allowed to return until one week has passed. With the increasing difficulty of raiding tiers and content, everyone needs to be at their highest potential. Alcohol is fine as long as you are not using it during a raid.
While working on progression content, as long as you are not conflicting with any obligations with Relentless, raiders are free to raid with whomever you wish unless the guild is within 2 kills of us. This includes alts. This exception is in place for recruitment purposes. If the guild you are raiding with has finished the tier, feel free to raid with them regardless of our progression. THIS RULE ONLY APPLIES TO GUILDS ON UNDERMINE AND ANVILMAR (CR)!
Who Gets to Go?
In keeping with our spirit as a casual raiding guild, we do not have set teams or preferential treatment regarding raid slots, with the exception that those with Raider rank. Those players have priority on slots for the content in which they are a Raider rank of.
General raid slot priority for non-farm content is as follows:
The raid has 3 components, tanks, DPS and healers. Different Raid instances and different boss fights call for different class balances, and as we progress we develop our own style and preference on how to set these up.
Class balance for any given raid is at the discretion of the Raid Leader, and at all times we will attempt to prevent over-saturation of a given class. In general, we will try not to take more than 3 of any class.
Relentless uses our website for raid sign-ups. Feel free to post other events in such as Battlegrounds, Arena time for your teams, 5 Mans. etc. Only designated Raid Leaders or officers will post Raid events.
Alts will automatically get sub status for a run when there are enough Mains to fill the run.
Raiders do not have slot priority over anyone for Farm Content. Those with Replacement slots are always encouraged to be online and ready when it's time for Raid Invites, as they have first option on any slots that open.
In any case, the Raid Leader has the final say on raid class balance and makeup, and those decisions will always be made based on what is best for the raid and the guild as a whole.
Raid Leaders set their own teams based on Relentless Raid Rules. We generally try to set teams the two-three hours before any given raid. Please sign up early to events that you can attend.
We will maintain our policy that we will not force players into a certain spec in order for them to be able to raid.
