Goal of Pick Up Raids
Giving less-experienced members of VoS opportunities to practice and apply what they have learned in Learning Raids and in static teams. Refining and encouraging personal growth of experienced raiders.

  • Encounter clears will not be guaranteed.
  • Frequently leaving early or being late will not be tolerated.
  • Hostility to any individual in the raid team or reluctance to try any encounters and/or mechanics will not be tolerated.
  • This is a learning-style raid.
  • This is not a raid team, members will not be offered static positions.
  • Decisions about player inclusion and role assignment with optimal raid goals in mind.
Requirements Prior to Pick Up Raids
  • Players should be experienced with the fight (ie, know all mechanics and have completed the fight multiple times in the past) and be ready to perform appropriate roles for their class.
  • Ability to concentrate and keep communications clear....
Hi, my name is Pancake. I’ve been a member of the guild for four months, and I’m currently a member of team Heck on Ice. I’m recruiting for Legendary Quaggan Scholars, a new static that I’m forming.

We will run on Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00pm to 12:00 midnight EST.

This group is going to be semi-experienced; that is, experience on all of the bosses is not required, but experience on the classes you wish to play is necessary.

70% attendance will be required to remain in the group.

If you are interested in joining please mail Italypwns.6508 or give me a shout in discord!
Join us this Saturday (5/13) at 5 PM EST for a brand new jumping puzzle race! I always assure people my puzzles are easy, and this time is no different. However, special guest builder Paul built over half the actual jumping portions, so good luck! Squad will form up at 4:50, and the race will begin at 5!

The first person to clear our puzzle will receive 200g, and their choice of mini from the gem store! Even if you don't think you'll win, listening to Ares get stressed out is enough reason to show up~

I'll be leaving the puzzle up for a while as well, and the winner can help me design a forum badge for all who complete it. If you do complete it, send me a mail, and avoid spoiling any secrets for other people please!
Hello and welcome to the newest iteration of our famous-ish Shitty Art Contest! Yayyyyyyyy!

Anyways, the rules this time are going to be a bit different, so be sure to read them.

All participants will earn a forum badge, with the winner of the art contest (contest 2) receiving a slightly more prestigious one, and the ability to submit an emote of their own to add to the discord! On top of that, the two contest winners will earn 100g, and 200g + 1200 gems respectively!

The contest is going to be broken down into two parts, each with their own prize pool, and will primarily be hosted on discord, not the forums.

One thing of note - if you want to comment on posts, do so in general/heck/wherever else you want. I'll be deleting non-entries in the shitty art contest channel for visibility.

Contest 1 - The Shitty Theme Contest - 100 gold - 5/1 - 5/8
