    Default [OLD] Freelance Open Raid Team - Cazic Thule Server

    For the new thread, redirect here: http://www.monkly-business.net/forum...ad.php?t=38402


    Freelance is currently recruiting Monks!


    Brief Overview

    Freelance is an open raiding team. It's strictly based on a pure and true open raid concept. There is no single guild associated and/or affiliated or in an alliance with Freelance. The entire team is a collection of like minded players which come together to experience content and help others share in that experience. We've built our numbers over time, through word of mouth; advertising on forums, and other in game zone wide methods.

    All players are welcome to attend Freelance raids. Prior raid experience is not required. We welcome both newcomers to the raid scene, as well as seasoned players. Newcomers benefit from our raids not just from character advancement, but also from exposure to raiding in general. Seasoned players in the mix, allows for class experience and tricks of the trade to be passed down the line. It's good overall, and good for the game.


    Raid Atmosphere

    Freelance is a friendly, low stress raiding environment. We're accustomed to working with both experienced and inexperienced raiders alike. There's no intimidation factor on our raids. Raids are NOT led by iron fist dictatorship, there is no talking down to others, nor drama of any kind.

    We're dedicated to helping others of all play styles, backgrounds and experience. We continuously seek to improve our performance at both the raid and class level through the sharing of knowledge openly and constructively. These efforts make us stronger as a team overall. If/when mistakes happen during events, we as a team understand and we work collectively to identify the causes in order to implement solutions, we do not play the blame game. This concept of understanding is a focal point which fosters goodwill and strengthens our bond as a team.

    Start times: 8:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM CST, 5:00 PM PST

    There are no mandatory attendance requirements.

    DKP System & Item Distribution

    DISTRIBUTION PROCESS:

    Freelance uses both DKP and Random 1000 to distribute items. All items are associated with a category, and each category tied to a ruleset; which is used for item distribution.

    Current designated expansion LOOT items require 20% Raid Attendance in order to BID on them. Retro designated expansion items are processed on demand via /random 1000 Ruleset, with normal associated base costs. With the exception of special earmarked items (quest drops, etc).

    AUG, RUNE and N/A category items are distributed via Random 1000 ruleset.

    LOOT category items are auctioned off in 3 rounds of open /raidsay bidding, starting at 10 DKP. Minimum bid increments of 10 DKP at a time. A player cannot bid beyond their Current DKP holdings. Following no bids, an OPEN tag is associated and the Random 1000 ruleset is used (no RA needed).

    Each "Real Life" person is allowed to participate, winning one AUG, LOOT, RUNE, and N/A item per night. OPEN items still count as your item in that category for the night, and are available to anyone, including prior winners.

    DKP EARNINGS:

    DKP points are earned based on the total value of all items distributed, divided by the total number of attendees, on a per event/target basis. Basically that means, for each target, all DKP spent, is split among all those who attended for that target. The more we spend, the more we earn.

    VoA T2 rocks for loot. There are some tricky raids in t3, but you'll be able to gear everyone up fast in t2.

    Aye, good drop table in this tier. I prefer the vendor currency option as a method to obtain gear, as it gives more players choice outside of the chest drops.

    I agree also, gearing up is key as we head into T3 soon. Of course, all gear intake helps our other progression efforts we're working in conjunction to VoA.

    Thanks for the comments.

    (second team on CT to accomplish this I believe)

    Currently farming Sepulcher a bit (good melee drops still), SL/Kael/CC, would have started EW this weekend but when it takes 30 minutes of spam to get an instance, you lose just too much raid time. :(

    Moderator Please Read:

    I had to create a new thread. Ever since my account was botched, I lost the ability to edit my older posts (which included the original FL recruitment post). An updated FL post is in order at this time.

    Could a moderator please merge only the replies of the old thread (here), with this new one. Thanks for your time
