    The Weekend Warriors guild was founded in March 2011 largely consisting of a group of friends from Dark Elders and Prophecy who had become used to raiding together in the cross-guild Weekend Warrior weekend raid group during Wrath of the Lich King.

    At the time it was founded by raid leader Scabb, the new guild required few ‘rules’ and even less information as the members all knew each other, the way Scabb ran things and so we kept this side of things deliberately light and common sense based.

    As time went on however the guild grew with the inclusion of new members and it became apparent that there wasn’t a lot of info out there for the new member about the who, how, where and what of this guild and so I thought it time that we put a few lines together to guide them and indeed remind us all.

    So, here follows the definitive…

    “Grunt’s Guide to Weekend Warriors”

    First off, welcome to the guild and congratulations for being awesome enough to have earned entry into this rather special guild!

    In this guide we will cover the following FAQs:

    Who are Weekend Warriors?

    Weekend Warriors are a group of people that share the common objectives of a mature, friendly guild environment in which to level alts, grind, raid and play, an understanding that Real Life™ is a more important game than World of Warcraft® and who think the most fun you can have in game is in a weekend raid with friends having a laugh on voice chat whilst progressing through the encounters that Blizzard brings to the table.

    More info on who we are can be found here.

    Who are the officers and can I become one?

    Weekend Warriors is not like other guilds you may have known in your WoW travels. It has a leader, Scabbrox, who is the person under whose banner these disparate people have of their own free will collected. He is assisted by the entire guild membership in making the guild work. As required, the GM may select suitable members to be administrators of certain guild functions such as: GM support, Raid Leading or Guild Bank administration or as members of the Raid Team Council, The Council of Trynottofail. Admins and Counsellors are distinguished by their current willingness to serve the guild in an administrative capacity and receive the ‘tools’ to do their job in the form of a higher rank that allows them access to these functions.  When they cease to cover these functions others take their place and they return to the membership ranks.

    How long is my trial period?

    Trials are not of a fixed length and depend very much on the person. Some people find themselves confirmed in less than two weeks, others may take up to a month. It’s hard to say exactly what will trigger an early confirmation, but it will generally happen when it becomes obvious that someone is ‘right’ for the guild through their actions or words and will normally take longer in the case of a less active or sociable player. Players that don’t convince us of their fit within the guild within a month will be informed of their trial’s failure and removed from the guild.

    What can I do in my trial to help me get accepted?

    Be yourself. There’s really no point trying to behave other than you would normally do so in order to get accepted as then you’d only be in the wrong guild. Other than that, be friendly, be polite, say hi to people, engage in conversations if you want to contribute and help the guild and its players through generosity and contribution.

    How many characters can I have in guild?

    During your trial you can have one main character and one alt in guild.  After your trial is over and you are confirmed as a full member you can have as many characters as you wish to bring into the guild.  N.B.  We will however remove alts that haven’t been played in months to keep the Grunt rank clear of clutter.

    How does the Guild Bank work?

    The guild bank is there for the membership as a whole and has several tabs for their use as follows:

    Tab 1: Herbs – Managed by the Head Herbologist. This tab is for Farmers and players to deposit current expansion herbs and primary reagents. You may NOT use this tab for personal crafting or skill levelling.

    Tab 2: Pots and Flasks – Managed by the Head Alchemist. This tab is for the storage of raid quality raid flasks and potions. Consumable items may only be taken by main characters for WW raid purposes.

    Tab 3: Enchants and Magic – Managed by the Head Magician and Head Scribe. This tab is for the storage of raid enchanting scrolls, item enhancements and relevant mats. You can also place any blue, green or purple items in here for disenchanting. Consumable items may only be taken by main characters for WW raid purposes.

    Tab 4: Meat and Fish – Managed by the Head Hunter and Head Fisherman. This tab is for the storage of meat, fish and cooking ingredients for the crafting of raid foods and feasts. You may not use this tab for other personal crafting or skill levelling.

    Tab 5: Raid Food – Managed by the Head Chef . For the storage of raid quality finished foods and feasts only. Consumable items may only be taken by main characters for WW raid purposes.

    Tab 6: Gems and Ores – Managed by the Head Jeweller and Head Miner. For storage of ores, raw gems and raid quality crafted gems and other releated mats. Consumable items may only be taken by main characters for WW raid purposes.

    Tab 7: Free for All – Managed by the Guild Bank Admin. This tab is for the storage of items that are from the current expansion but don’t fit into either of the above raid group tabs. Such as crafted or levelling gear, lower quality gems, food mats, pets, toys and item enhancements. These items can be used freely by any member on main or alt, as they wish.

    Tab 8: Secure Storage – Managed by the Guild Master and Bank Admin. This tab is a storage place for BoE items or mats that are not for general use, such as high quality current tier crafting ingredients, gems and enchants. It is also used to store stacks of excess high value mats. If you are interested in a BoE item in this tab please ask for it in here and you will be informed of availability and if there is a price to pay. Items not requested within a brief period of time will be sold to generate revenue for the Guild Bank.

    Alt Bank: We have an overspill bank staffed by GM and Quartermaster alts in a guild called “Zug Zug“. Excess and reserve stock is stored here.

    NB: Further, possibly more up to date information regarding the tabs can always be found in the Info tab of each tab.

    What are your raid times and rules?

    Our Mythic Team Raid times are from 15:45 to 19:00 server on Saturday and Sunday (an hour later from June to September).

    Our Flex Team raid times are from 20:00 to 23:00 on Fridays for any and all members of the guild to enjoy a casual, laid-back and carefree Heroic raiding experience with all their guildies and friends.

    General rules governing attendance, gearing and looting can be found here.

    Who can sign up for the raids?

    As far as the guild’s progress raids are concerned, only those members that are included in the Raid Team Roster here.  This is limited to those who have proven to be regular, consistent and capable members of the raid team, those who have been accepted on a raid trial basis and those who have been invited to form the back-up roster as selected and defined by the Raid Leader.

    The flex team runs are open to all guild members that meet the gearing criteria set for the event, subject to available spots and balance viability with flex team regular rank members having priority.

    What’s your guild channel policy?

    We do ask that the language in guild be kept civil and free of gratuitous swearing and obviously adult themes. Politics and religion are to be considered off-limits for discussion in guild chat. Lastly, spamming and using inappropriate, infantile greetings such as “whalecum” will get you kicked from the guild.

    Do you have an Officer chat channel?

    Yes, the officer channel is available to all players of Councillor rank and above.

    Can you explain your ranks?

    Our ranks are as follows:

    • Warlord* – Guild Master
    • General* – Guild Elder & Administrator
    • Councillor* – Raid & Guild Council Member
    • Quartermaster* – Official Guild Appointed Profession Heads
    • Champion – Regular Progress Raid Team Member (85%+)
    • Blood Guard – Progress Raid Team Member
    • Legionnaire – Regular Flex Raider
    • Stone Guard – Social Member
    • Grunt – Alt Rank
    • Scout – Trial Member

    *Authenticator mandatory ranks.

    Do you kick members for inactivity?

    We won’t normally remove full members if we know why they are away. We will however remove members if they have not informed us of a reason for not logging after 3 months of inactivity. Generally speaking, if there’s a hope you’ll come back to us we’ll keep you in and hope for your return, but if you simply disappear without trace and make no attempt to contact us again you will find yourself removed. This is especially true of trial members who will be removed from guild if they fail to log regularly during a trial.  Lastly as WW is not intended as an alt parking guild, we will also remove players that move on to main in another guild and then no longer play an active role in guild life here.

    Do you have any required addons?

    If you want to raid with us you will need the following addons listed here.

    You mention a Voice Server, what are the details?

    We use Discord as our main voice server and invitation links are available in the member forum and in the Guild Information section.
