Raid rules, preparations and code of conduct

The goal with these rules and guidelines are to make the raid go as smooth as possible. They are tools for raiders to use in order to remember how to prepare for a raid and how to act during one. All these rules should be fairly obvious to everyone, but we choose to write them down so we can more easily act upon them if a player cross the line. In The Enigma Order we are generally very open minded and forgiving, but we have also asked players to leave the guild after multiple violations.

Smooth raid execution:

1) Always be on time.
Make sure to have a way of getting to a dungeon within 2-3 minutes after an invite. Try to avoid having hearthstone on cooldown before traveling large distances away from Stormwind right before a raid. Good reasons to be late are okay, but not unless the raid leader has been given a message about it.

2) Listen to Ventrilo and read everything going on in raid chat.
It shouldn't be necessary for the raid leader to repeat him/herself. The need to repeat everything is boring not only for the raid leader, but everyone that needs to listen to it.

3) Ask questions if something is unclear.
Our wipe quota does not contain room for players not following the execution plan.

4) Show up for raids you have accepted
When you accept a raid invite you must make sure you have time for it. If something suddenly hinders you from attending, please do your best to inform an officer. We have the forum, guild chat and you can even send an SMS. The raid leader will need the information before the time the raid is planned to start.

Preparations:

1) Understand fully the strengths and weaknesses of your class
Know your class every little detail and understand them and use it's pros and cons to your advantage.

2) Optimize the potential of your gear
Make sure to have the best gems and enchants on your gear. Have all items repaired.

3) Make sure to have consumables for the entire raid
Have stacks of food and flasks ready to be used during the raid. The guild bank usually have large amounts of food.

4) Study the raid bosses
Watch movies and read guides in preparation to a raid. Study with eyes looking for how different elements in the fight are being solved. Understand the reasons behind the actions.

Mentality:

1) Be focused
Be fully focused on the raid and turn off all other distractions; Especially TV. If you have time to look away you can spend that time looking at what other players are doing.

2) Expect the unexpected
Be prepared to be targeted by bad stuff. Make plans on how to act if it happens. Do not play as a preprogrammed robot, but adapt and make plans while the fight is in progress.

3) Be polite and friendly
Mistakes will happen and be repeated. Have a cool head and avoid name calling and bad language. Raid leaders and officers will take appropriate actions if a player stand out as a liability.

Re: Raid rules, preparations and code of conduct

Bump. Everyone should read the rules again and let them sink in.

In particular:

Make sure to have the best gems and enchants on your gear.

That's the rule and everyone accepted it upon joining. Don't try discussing it now. We had more than enough of low percent wipe to know that those marginal gains are important.
And I don't mean people forgetting to enchant or gem a new piece - what I mean is people saying that "it doesn't matter for them". All due respect, but keep that opinion to yourself and get the best possible gems and enchants.

Mistakes will happen and be repeated. Have a cool head and avoid name calling and bad language

Nothing to add to that, people smarter than me made that rule.

Additionally:

Come to the raids prepared to face new fight, know what to expect from a new boss. Watching a guide is usually the best way to do that.
