Dear Nordlys,

hi there, wanted to ask you for an application i have met a few of your guildmembers and been to the planes with some of them, has been pretty fun i have to admit, but mostly i have talked to gonaden about the raiding and heard that you do not take them too seriously and involve this so called dkp. I was willing to join ancient dominion but after being in one of their raids and they used dkp i know i werent going to get a chance at getting some raid items compared to the good old rand100 where the individual gets a random chance of getting the item.
I used too be in vanguard exodus but due to some unfortunate circumstances it is falling apart so i have decided to move on, hopefully some of our members will be up for joining but most are heading towards AD. All i want to do is have fun i pay the game to play nuff said )
your guild has helped me before and it will be a priviledge to join you.

''I was going to join AD but then I realised I actually have to help out on raids to get my ph4t lewts.  Earn loot? Dumb idea if you ask me.  Instead I'm gonna join you where I can just turn up on the monkdrop raids and /random kk thx la~''


This has to be the worst application ever, can't believe they guilded him!  Anyway what's he talking about?  He *did* get loot with us, he ninja looted a BoT key piece (sash).  No pleasing some people.

Great Voltaire quote btw. (Altho IIRC he worded it different, Lydia Lunch put it in those words tho)

And well, dunno why he objected to the dkp, VE was instituting one also, and in fact he attended every single raid we ever did so he would have benefitted if he kept that type of attendance in any other guild *shrug*...

To say he ninja looted the sash is a tad unfair Evertonia, we were told it was FFA on the sashes and heads. Saying that, yes, there is no pleasing some people.

Personally, I'm all in favour of it, I spent over 24 hours raiding Kael and didn't win a single drop, whereas someone who attended his first plate cycle raid won the /rand 100 roll.

If you think about it, the dkp system will iron itself out, the people who have attended most raids will have the best kit and will therefore not need to bid on items that others will consider upgrades. Tried to explain that to him, but he obviously just didn't like the idea of it. Shame, great guy and great puller ;)

Hi Biktin,

Thanks for telling us the other side to the story.  Sounds more like he didn't quite understand how the dkp system works.  Sorry if I was a bit harsh, I'm very protective over AD and don't like seeing anything negative said about us.

With the sash, you were clearly told FFA *but* AD members first on these pieces, many members still missing this.  This is a common item though so not a big issue.

I know this monk well, hes a great guy and a serious player. Agree with biktin, seems he might have understood our loot system abit. Either way i wish him luck in Nodlys.
