Rights
As a member you are entitled to the full benefits of the guild. This includes, but is not limited to: participation in guild events, the use of our message boards and website, the use of guildchat in-game, the use of our Discord server for you and your friends for WoW and other activities. You have the right to speak freely about your concerns and ideas on the forums, on Discord (some restrictions apply here, see below) and in-game. You have the right to information from the officers/assists and guild leader. They are obliged to answer all of your questions truthfully. You have the right to request assistance from guild mates in your adventures. You are at the same time strongly encouraged to help your guild mates when needed, but not required to be at everyone’s beck and call.

You are entitled to be treated fairly, equally and with respect at all times. You are bound to treat others in the guild in the same manner.

Behavior
As a member of Nephilim you will be kind and courteous to all players in the game. You will not kill steal, intentionally train, spam, insult, flame or bad mouth players, GMs or chat channels, or do anything that reflects negatively upon the reputation of the guild or its members.

Discrimination or slander based on race, gender, religion, sexual preference or anything that is not accepted in real life, will not be tolerated. Punishment will be swift and severe.

You will not harass, beg or complain to get people for your group, about being power leveled, teleported, resurrected, given loot, get enchants or items crafted. These things are not your rights, but your privileges. If a member or the guild decides to help you in this way, that is that member’s decision. You cannot demand it from your guild mates.

Guild chat may at times be heated and you are asked to have a thick skin and not to take offence at things that are meant as a joke. However, cruel comments and sexual harassment to another player will not be tolerated. This will be punishable by either a warning or removal from the guild.

If you have any issues with other members of the guild, or other players, you will discuss those problems with the other person first. Do not bring issues to the officers unless you absolutely require mediation. We are all adults here and it is the belief of this guild that we can handle our own disagreements.

If an issue arises that cannot be resolved, you will act in a dignified manner and allow the leadership of the guild to hand out any reprimands if required.

Most importantly the guild is designed to enhance the enjoyment of the game for you and everyone that plays it. Do not cause undue stress or be disruptive within the guild for your own pleasure. Do not ruin the playtime of others.

Ranks

  • GM (guild masters)
  • All Father (Raid leader)
  • Officers (officers and officer alts)
  • Raider (Full Raid members)
  • Trial/Members (trials)
  • Social (special socials)
  • Alts (alts of trials and members)
  • Inactive (friends and inactives)

Leadership
The guild has a Guild Master, currently Eli . He has complete authority, but is required to listen to every officer before making important decisions. The officers have the role of adviser to the guild master, and to help out in daily tasks.

The tasks of the guild master and officers include (but is not limited to):

  • Recruitment
  • Organising PvE and PvP raids
  • Leading 10 man to 20 man PvE raids
  • Distributing loot where applicable
  • Moderating the forum and discord
  • Communication between members and guild masters
  • Mediation in case of a dispute between members

Raiders
Raiders (Full Raid members) have priority for a spot in 20 man raids over Members and socials, unless certain classes or types of players are needed to improve the raid setup. They also have priority for loot in 20 man raids over members and alts on rolled items, but are advised to consider potential gear upgrades for lower ranked players, especially when the item concerned is for an offspec.

Raiders are required to have at least 80% attendance. If they are unable to do so for a short period of time, they need to notify the leadership via the “Offline for a while” thread on the private forum. If they are unable or unwilling to keep up 80% attendance for a long period, they will risk getting demoted to social.

Trials

Members/Trials (trials) have priority for a spot in 20 man raids over socials and alts, unless certain classes or specs are needed in the raid. They also have loot priority over socials and alts. They have to adhere to the same attendance rules as Raiders. If they do not keep up 80% attendance, they will be removed from the guild, unless special circumstances apply.

Inactive
This veteran rank is reserved for friends and inactive players. Not every Raider is entitled to a inactive rank if they wish to drop below 80% attendance. The decision of who gets inactive rank is left to the leadership.

Social
The social rank is for friends and family of the members. The socials have no rights nor obligations to raid. If the leaders find that there is a spot for a social, a social can be offered a spot.
Alts generally follow the same rules as socials.

Recruitment
Applicants have to be at least level 120, be outfitted to match the guild’s needs (including, but not limited to, class, equipment, talents), and be able to keep up at least 80% attendance. The minimum age is 18. Recruitment is currently the responsibility of the guild leadership, although members are asked to recommend strong players.

A trial is added to the guild and given the rank of member. After approximately 1 week a topic will be created on the forum where the new members positive and negative aspects can be discussed. After at least 4 weeks the member will be either promoted to raider or removed from the guild. The guild masters ultimately decide, but they are required to listen to the officers and any raider of the same class before deciding.

Raiding
You are not allowed to join non-guild raids in the current mythic 20man instance(s). An exception is made for alts, and for Raiders after we have cleared the instance.

Our usual raid schedule is as follows: Wednesday, Sunday, Monday 20:00pm – 23:00pm. This depends on the amount of raid content available. Ingame raids are open for invites at around 19:45. The GMOTD will reflect any special changes to this. Whisper ‘inv’ to the raid leader or an officer to get an invite into the raid if you are not automatically invited.

You are expected to join at least 80% of the raids. If you are unable to join the raid for a longer period, please notify the leadership beforehand. If you do not, you risk getting demoted to social, or being removed from the guild.

To improve raid efficiency, the leadership may remove and invite guild members of any rank to the raid at any time.
