Sanctuarý is a casual guild, focused on progression at our own pace. Our desire is to see all the game has to offer, without the pressure of being the first or necessarily the best, but certainly the most friendly; family feeling environment where folks can play their toons without drama in a PG environment. Our leadership team is compromised of long time WoW players. The GM and Officers have been playing this game since it's inception - or what many refer to as "vanilla WoW". They also have a myriad of toons so they can display a complete knowledge of ALL kinds of classes/races to empathize and understand all mechanics of running raids, instances, and obtaining achievements. All of our leadership has been on hard core raid teams. We know what it means to get to that status and STAY at that status and have decided that's not what we want this guild to look and feel like.
We don't care if you are the "best". We care that you can play your toon, understand the mechanics of your chosen spec, function as a team member, provide help to our family environment, avoid drama whenever possible, and maintain our PG environment out of respect for those of us that have children that play and each other. When we mention we are a family environment, that is no exaggeration.
The current leadership team are all family members. We consider all members of our guild our WoW family, and as such expect everyone to treat each other with respect. Most importantly though, we have FUN. We have special dates set aside for special guild events - things like "Where's Waldo" or treasure hunts, or interesting contests that involves SPEED RUNS through dungeons and instances with gold rewards. It's all part of team building...because if you don't know your team, you can't possibly raid.
COME GROW WITH US!!!
We are off to SUCH a fantastic start! Two weeks of raiding and four bosses down fairly easily, and this week we even were able to bring 12 folks with us!
Way to go! Your diligence has paid off, and your efforts rewarded with the guild being able to effectively raid so early into the expansion.
However, there is no rest for the proactive raider! Here are the things you should be focusing on with your raiding toon:
1. World Quests - complete the 4 blocks to receive the chest reward for gear upgrades. There are some amazing pieces to be had!
2. Mythic Dungeons - Upgrade pieces are still available for many of you.
3. Professions - we need enchants, gems, pots/flasks, food, etc. The more of us that can make them, the healthier we are as a guild. Keep any crafting mats you get from killing things and if you don't personally need them DUMP THEM INTO THE GUILD BANK. I will be cleaning up the guild bank this week and moving old mats into one tab so new content mats can be in multiple tabs as described.
If you have need of particular items to get profession levels, PLEASE create a POST on this website so folks know what your need is, and then can send it to you specifically or know what to put into the guild bank and not sell in the AH. FOR EXAMPLE, Arsinaca should create a post saying he needs green items sent to him for disenchanting so he can gather mats to be able to do enchants for us. I need SILK and lots of it, Arkhana, etc.
Our raid time for now will continue to be Saturdays at 8pm eastern time. Kara will be running on Friday's at 8pm eastern time. So far, I have Ehdge's phone number and two other people to contact if there is a raid problem. Please private message me if you are a REGULAR raider if you wish to have raid updates. Starting next week I'm going to send out a test message.
We will continue to run Kara attunement groups until folks are attuned, then we will just run as many teams as we can on Fridays and have FUN!
I NEED to remind everyone that we are a PG rated guild. PLEASE try to remember that many of us have little ones that can HEAR you at any given time. I would respectfully ask that you refrain from COLORFUL METAPHORS when you are on vent or typing in guild chat. One of the reasons many folks choose our guild is because it is a safe place for families. I would like to keep it that way. All should feel comfortable here - think about how you would want it to be if it was your 10 or 11 year old listening or playing online and you were trying to be an example to them. THANK YOU for trying!! I know it slips out sometimes and I HEAR you guys GULPING going "WHOOPS!" I appreciate your effort!
Finally, if anyone needs any help with anything in particular, please do not hesitate to ask. Your officers (Ehdge, Trin, Star, Syntt) and myself have always consistently tried to offer a ton of help - but pretty much the entire guild is just one big family. It's the way we are.
See you in game - hugs, big fat ones!
Well my friends, it has been awhile - but here we are again adventuring into new content with old heroes that have become corrupted, old villains that have become friends, and all of us together figuring it out!
I welcome this new expansion as it appears to be (IMHO) the best expansion I have seen since Burning Crusade. There is so much to do, so much lore to explore, and such an enjoyable time doing so.
With that said, I have updated our guild website with some new content, including a NEW guild award section! This will be regularly given out to guild members to recognize JUST ABOUT ANYTHING...and comes complete with a PRIZE given out quarterly to the guildee that has acquired the most points. I already have the first person in mind, so if you haven't already registered with the website, please do so by completing the "MEMBERSHIP" section directly tot he left so that I can approve your membership to the website!
We are working on setting up our raid schedule - SO EXCITED TO GET INTO KARA - so if you haven't gemmed and enchanted all the pieces you can, please do so!
Nice to be back, and BIG FAT HUGS to everyone!
