Prepatch for next expansion is around the corner and it's just 5 weeks till Battle for Azeroth (or azerith?) goes live.
The expansion itself will add new features to the game and the officer team with the help of our favorite gnome is planning a few changes for the guild.


Let me start with getting new and hopefully some more player into the guild.
In the past we made use of applications here on our forums. This won't be the case any longer.
Most people who are looking for a (casual) guild don't want to put much effort and time in the joining process. Because of that they don't even bother to check a guild webside out when you tell them that they have to make a written application.

From here on someone who is interested in joining us can talk to an officer about it and his intentions in DoV.
If (s)he just want a spot as social for being part in a nice community (s)he can get a social spot right away. If it turns out that this player is a total douche he will get kicked again.
People who want to join the guild for a raid spot will be invited as trial and we will test them out in raid enviorment. They will get promoted if we have the right feeling about them or, if they suck, they will get offered a spot as social.


Next change for the new expansion is signing up for raids.
We got asked often why we are not using the ingame calendar instead of the forums calendar for raid signups. Well, both systems has its pros and contras. Forum calendar is handy when you can't get online and wants to change your status for a raid for example. Ingame calendar is easier to handle cause it's just one click away when your online.

To make it short, we will run with both systems. There will be the forum calendar where you can sign up for raids as usual and leave a message etc, and there will be ingame calendar events.
If it turns out that people only use the ingame events we might even drop the forum signups at all.


Another topic is voicec chat.
We won't use Teamspeak anylonger and are changing to Discord.
The DoV channel is: https://discord.gg/9DrfVhS


Guild Bank:
We want to provide food for the raids again on a regular base. Therfor we need people to contribute raw materials or cooked food.
So please throw your not needed stuff into the guild vault instead of vendoring or selling it on the AH.
THANKS!


Now to the main topic, raiding:
Like in Legion we want to focus on HC raids. Simply cause we don't know if we will have or ever get to constant 20 players for regular mythic raids.
So that's not a change from what we had in the past expansion.
The new part is that we most likely will team up with another guild for raids. This guild is Crescent Moon Alliance.

It's a small guild with around the same amount of raiders and equal aims for raiding. The guild is run by Yami, a former DoV member.
Rakarth joined their monday HC Antorus raids some months ago and over the last weeks a good handfull of our people followed.
It's a friendly atmosphere in those raids and we got to know each other little better quite fast. So the idea of teaming up for raids in the future came up.

What was clear from start on for both sides was that we are not looking for a full guild merge. That might change at a later point, but noone knows.
But we want to use the new Community feature that comes with BfA. If you want to know more about it, check: BfA Communities

It's also unsure atm, if we will have merged raids from start on in BfA. If both guilds have enough player to fill a raid on their own, it's very likely that every guild will have their own raid for 2 days a week and we only merge on a 3rd raiding day. It all depends how many raiders each guild will have. AND which role those people want to play.
It's also possible that we can run MYTHIC raids together, but again it depends on the members in each guild.


If some of you are already sure what he/she will play in Battle for Azeroth, feel free to give a hint to Rakarth. He is making a list of players.


For the upcoming weeks that HC Anotrus raid on Monday, 20:00 server time, continues. Be online at raid time and feel free to join.

Cheers,

Let's pack our bags and leave that not so high populated realm.
Tomorrow, Sunday 19th, after raid we will move Defenders of Valor to Ravencrest (PvP).

Everyone is welcome to follow ofcourse. Remember to empty your mail box and that you can only carry 250k gold on each character.

And once again, cross realm raiding, aka you don't want to move but still want to raid with us, WON'T happen!

Cya on the other side!
