With BWL less than a week away, we have discussed between all officers and refined how we will handle BWL. These rules apply to all raid groups, unless otherwise noted. Hopefully you are all preparing/prepared and giddy with anticipation....its about time we get some fun content and more to do!
For anyone who needs the current rules laid out, we will quickly review how loot/signups/DKP/ect work.
We are a DKP based guild, please see Murloc DKP Site for your current standings prior to any raid to know your exact DKP along with others DKP. MC/Onyxia share DKP for purchasing items and accruing DKP, listed under Molten Core DKP.
Each sign up for MC/Onyxia is worth 10 DKP. Please sign up 24 hours ahead of time, with your class/spec. DKP will be award for all who sign up - Attending/Not Attending/Maybe, please provide notes as needed. This DKP is awarded BEFORE raid start and can be used for that raid. If you sign up attending, but no show on raid day you will receive -20 DKP per no show sign up.
Onyxia worth 30 DKP per kill, MC bosses 1-9 worth 10 DKP, Ragnaros worth 15 DKP. Full MC is worth 105 DKP. Please check with the raid groups to see if DKP is added during or after MC. Items bought will lower your spendable DKP. Please monitor your own DKP and even that of other players. Bids must in a number (not ALL my DKP) and if you cannot afford the minimum, you are still allowed to bid on an item and may go negative if no one with DKP bids higher. Loot will not be sharded when someone can use. Raid groups are MS > OS unless otherwise stated for spending DKP. Mistakes can also happen, checking your DKP/others DKP and notifying when a mistake happens is your responsibility.
Standby players (ones who do not get one of the 40 raid spots, but are ready to fill a spot as needed) will earn full DKP as long as that player is available in TS or easily reachable to fill a spot. They are expected to be as raid ready as possible but will not be penalized for not having world buffs.
There is a monthly(on the 1st of every month) DKP Tax of 10% to every player listed on the DKP website. This is to stimulate DKP spending to help the raid overall as well as help battle inflation on the DKP page.
Players who are retired from the guild website (due to extended afk > 30 days or gquit) will have DKP reset to 0 upon return. No exceptions going forward.
Though we are a DKP based guild, there are a few prioritized item depending on the raid group, to maximize the benefit the items have for the raid group as a whole. We do our best to do what is best for the guild/raid group, please talk to your class advisers/officers with any questions you may have or locate loot priority lists.
The raid calendar has all upcoming events, please sign up to help the raid leaders/class advisers know upcoming raid comp. If you don't sign up/sign up to the incorrect raid/sign up late, that is on you and cannot be held against the raid leader. Raid groups will "confirm" the
Everyone attending raids is expected to come fully prepared - World buffs/consumes/fully enchanted/raid specced/signed up/on time/required addons. If you are missing any of the requirements you may be sat whether you signed up or not, at the raid leaders discretion.
The way to bid on items:
Raid leader will announce/link the item with the minimum cost. You must whisper at least the minimum cost to the person who is taking the bids for the items. You may not bid more than you have in DKP, with the exception, anyone is able to bid the minimum DKP amount to keep an item from getting sharded. You may not bid on BOE items to give to another player/AH the item for money. This is a 1 time, blind bid for the amount you are willing to pay for the item. It will be given to the player with the highest verified bid for the amount they bid. Ties will result in a /roll. MS > OS for bidding items unless otherwise noted as well as prioritized items. Players who bid the minimum amount that have DKP will beat players who bid the minimum amount and do not have the DKP. Example - Zebo has 20 DKP, Clayn has 30 DKP, item both players want drops, minimum price is 30. Both players bid 30, Clayn automatically wins since he has full DKP to cover the minimum cost.
Your DKP is guild wide, with the exception of top tier weapons. Currently BRE/Viskag/Perditions/Deathbringer/Leaf/Eye are the only items that will stick to the raid group that earned them. In the event of a combined run, it is between the groups that are combined. Other items, unless specifically stated may be bid on with your DKP, no matter what raid group it was earned in. We are trying to not reserve items within the guild, but also trying to keep the top tier weapons within the groups that earn them, till further stated.
Misbids cannot be held against the master looter and bids over your maximum DKP will be disqualified. Please "PASS" to the master looter to speed up looting time if you do not need/want the item. Bids placed after the item is closed will not be counted, pay attention please when its an item you desire.
Item minimum costs for MC/Ony:
T1 - 30 DKP
T2 - 50 DKP
Jewelry/Trinkets/Non-armor/Non-Weapon - 50 DKP
Weapons/Shield/Ranged/Any of the bottom 3 center slots - 60 DKP
To streamline and make less complicated BWL is following most of the rules MC/Onyxia do. There are a few exceptions that we will currently review.
BWL along with all upcoming 40 man raids will be on separate DKP systems. This encourages new players to join the guild to refill our ranks and not be last in line forever for items.
BWL is currently setup on the DKP site, though your starter BWL DKP has not been added till right before BWL launch. You will notice you can see you "current standings" for BWL or MC/Ony now on the website. BWL DKP is for items obtained from BWL. MC/Ony DKP is for MC/Ony items only, please pay attention to what current standings you are looking at when bidding on items.
Your BWL DKP will be 10% of your MC/Ony lifetime earned DKP.
BWL signups will be 10 DKP each, with a maximum of 2 signups (20 DKP) per week for BWL attendance. If you raid group clears BWL in 1 day and the other groups still require 2 days, 20 DKP may be awarded for 1 days signups to keep DKP even.
ALL bosses in BWL will be worth 10 DKP (20 DKP for 1st time kills). Possibility of 80 BWL DKP for boss kills and 20 BWL signup DKP each week.
Items will cost the following:
T2/Any other armors - 50 DKP
Weapons/Shield/Ranged/Any of the bottom 3 center slots - 60 DKP
*Please check out possible raid groups reserved items lists
All previous rules for MC apply the same to BWL unless already stated. We are trying to change as little as possible so everyone doesn't have to remember a bunch of rules as well as exceptions to the rules.
If you are not prepared for BWL you may be sat based on class leaders/raid leaders call.
BWL DKP tax will first start Oct. 1st. 10/01/2017.
We are assuming MC attendance will dip either due to extended raid schedule or people have gathered all their items and no longer want to show up. This is fairly natural but we still need patterns/raid mats/thunderfury/BIS items/other raid members getting gear. The way we will give a bonus to those who continue raiding on their mains is to give 10% of your LAST 30 DAYS MC/Ony earned dkp as BWL. To further explain, there is roughly 700 MC/Ony/Signup DKP possible every month. We will give 10% of your earned as BWL on the 1st of the next month. So if you earn 540 MC DKP in the last 30 days, on the 1st you will be given a bonus 54 BWL dkp. We are trying to give a bonus that wont break the BWL system, but will slightly reward those who put in the extra work. 700 MC/Ony dkp can turn in to 70 BWL DKP over 30 days time. That is almost an extra full BWL run worth of DKP once every 30 days.
10% of MC/Ony -> BWL Bonus will not start till Sept. 1st (will be the 30 days before Sept. 1st that will be used).
If you are still preparing please review the following:
100% PVE raid specs only/required class lead consumes list/signed up/enchanted gear/boss information post reviewed/talk to your class adviser on required addons or special specs, such as winter chill mage/any requested guild bank items (please request through your raid lead/class adviser).
Thank you for taking the time to read and be as raid ready as possible.
If you have any questions please message an officer/class adviser for clarification or more information!
