Whats your Guild style?

A snappy little shared topic was raised by Tzufit in the Bloz Azeroth forums.

Every guild has a certain personality, style, and even traditions all of its own. Do you have certain abilities that you always need to use on a boss kill screenshot? Or perhaps your guild holds an annual holiday party? What special traditions does your guild have?

From my perspective, we have a few consistent jokes:

  1. We rant about killing Dragons, often. Rawr!
  2. We always try to blame one of a few players for small mistakes. If you slip and fall from the AH roof, then it’s time to find that scapegoat. Firstly its Ram’s (boomkin/resto Druid) fault, then its Dia or Gen’s fault depending on who you ask, and then if that fails we blame Ram anyway. We used to blame any Shadow Priest, but they’re scarce now. I wonder why?
  3. Most raiders argue about who should get loot instead of them. That is so great.
  4. We help each other. We ask questions, and we go a little extra for each other.
  5. Most of the guild types almost complete sentences, and we have a few folks who are grammar fanatics. I love that, the avoidance of leet-speak makes me happy.

Happy raiding

What has WoW taught you?

A topic from the Blog Azeroth forums a long time ago, which I never go to posting at the time.

What has WoW taught you?

It has taught be about myself as a person, a little on controlling reaction to stupid and silly events. Those stupid things pile up, arrive in one and twos, and sometimes in tens and twenties. I know that there is value to calm and behaving with certainty.

Taught me how to value a relationship, and what I really value; with Life > wow being my mantra.My partner didn’t understand wow, and we’ve built up the expectation of what is reasonable between us – so that we are both happier.

It has helped strengthen my skills on how to impart bad news to people, and how to effect a change without backlash. Unsurprisingly it comes back to speaking plainly and honestly.

Happy gaming – Typhoonandrew
