re: Raid Rules - Mythic Raiding


Raid Rules

 Raids are fun, they do however require a certain degree of discipline as our aims are high and our time is precious.

To some, the rules below may sound harsh - but they are required to successfully progress into Heroic and Mythic content. 

If you aim to be a Raider in Tre Lowen, you have to accept and know these rules by heart.


Signing Up for the Raids

 We use the sign-up tool on the website for creating and managing progression raids. To sign up for a raid, go to "Raid" tab on our site, and you will see a list of all available raids posted by the Officer team. Simply select the desired raid, and set your status as "Available" or "Unavailable".

All guild members are allowed to sign up for all the posted raids. Signing up for a raid is treated like a contract that simply should be met. 

With that being said, there are situations in real life of course that sometimes prevent us from fulfilling our obligations. We do understand and take that into consideration.

 - Raiders have to attend 2 out of 2 raids a week. There might be an optional 3rd day which does not count towards attendance.

 - Signing up should be done as soon as possible, with a deadline of 8 hours before the raid. If you will not attend, please cancel (Sign as Unavailable).

 - If you are uncertain that you will be on time, use notes to pass information to Raid leaders, additionally you can /w them in-game or on Discord as well, just in case.

 - Cancelling attendance requires an explanation, use notes in rapid raid and/or whisper an officer or raid leader in advance to pass information, or use the forums/Discord.

- Signing up late (1-2 hours before the Raid) will not get you a raid invite, unless in extraordinary circumstances.

 - If you will be unavailable for raids for a period of time due to holidays, busy IRL or whatsoever, notify the guild or Officers on any platforms. If you for whatever reason "just" disappear (AKA abandon the team) you will be re-trialed, or removed from the guild in the worst case. See the trial section for details on trial membership.



 Every raid, Raid Leaders try to pick a few people to be a backup if needed. Maybe not the most glorious job in the world, but still, a very important one. 

 - Standby members are obliged to be reachable and ready to jump in.

- We don’t ask to simply stand there for 3 hours, in front of a raid entrance, but be around on Discord, real-ID, or on an Alt, behind your keyboard, ready to answer the call if needed!

 - If a situation occurs that doesn't allow you to stay online, contact a Raid leader or an Officer and inform them.


Raid Draft, Preparation and General Raid rules 

 - Raid Leaders usually pick the team 8 hours before the scheduled raid. Sometimes it can be done earlier, or later depending on the number of Available raiders. 

 - Raid invites start at 20:15 Server Time. Be there, on time, in front of the raid with everything you might need that evening. 

 - Reagents, bonus-roll tokens, flasks, food, runes and potions should be prepared before the raid, bring enough for the entire run.

 - Check if you're equipped with proper gear, talents, addons, best quality gems and enchants. Repair your gear too.

- Be able to play one of your offspecs!

Know boss tactics in advance. Don’t just rely on raid leaders' explanations and calls only! 

  (You can read journals or watch some videos beforehand to grab the basics!)

- Never pug Mythic raids if you are a Raider, unless current content for the week has been cleared out. 

- There is always a designated Raid Leader. The Raid Leader makes the final calls. When he/she speaks everyone listens. Also don't over-actively whisper Raid leaders during raids.

- Input on new tactics and observations are welcomed during preparation for encounters, don't be shy - but don't interrupt.

- When a Raid Leader calls for a wipe, everyone dies as fast they can. Answer a Raid Leader's call to either wait for a mass-res, or release. Make sure you are ready for the next pull asap.

- Using combat resurrection, heroism and other raid wide limited abilities are done only on raid leaders' calls, never by yourself.

 - Break time is set by a raid leader, usually 10 to 15 minutes, be back on time.

 - Never go AFK without asking the Raid Leader. Emergencies can happen of course. Do let us know.

 - Wiping can be frustrating but always keep your anger in check. We value a good atmosphere.

 - Don’t argue if you have a problem with someone. Leave it until after the raid or during the break if cannot wait. 

  And simply poke an officer or Raid Leader and leave coming up with a solution to them, without any rant over Discord or Raid chat.

 - Leaving the raid in rage is subject to severe penalties, up to a Guild kick. We raid as team, and Raiding is a team sport - if you don’t understand that, Tre Lowen is not the place for you.

 - Sometimes, certain fights requires some switching for proper balance or performance. The team's interest always outweighs personal needs and expectations. 

 - Be able to take constructive criticism.


Addons and Discord


- WeakAuas2

- Exorsus Raid Tools

- Discord - Our voice communication of choice. Please make sure you have no background noise, static, echoes, and that you have "push to talk" enabled. 

- Tre Lowen server: 

 - A working microphone.


Rewards and penalties

 -Extra rewards and penalties are optional and used by the Raid Leader's and Officer's call if deemed needed.

- Rewards and penalties apply to Standby Raiders.

- Not meeting attendance or Mythic Raiding expectations without valid reasons (known to Officers) will lead to Re-trial or Guild kick. 

- We evaluate every month. 


Loot Distribution

 With loot distribution being totally demolished by Blizzard, several loot distribution systems have become obsolete. Personal loot does not give much to work with, unfortunately. 

Overall, the GM and officers hold the power to overrule any loot-distribution rules for the good of the guild and the Raid team, and we always try to use the common sense and make the best decisions for our team. 


Kind regards,


Tre Lowen HQ
