We use a loot council system where everyone is rated by what gear they have and what loot would be better per raider. This ensures that, depending on what drops, we all have a better chance of receiving loot and bettering our characters throughout the tier. Please see required addons list for RC Loot Council.
Loot Notes and Exceptions
1. Core raiders will receive preference from Loot Council on all gear upgrades before part-time raiders.
2. Spirit Gear goes to core healers first, off healers after.
3. Any gear with bonus armor stats will go to core tanks first, off tanks after.
4. Disenchated Items will go to the guild bank for storage and crafting items will be for the core raiders first, the guild after.
5. Any profession patterns will be distributed by Loot Council to predetermined raiders with that profession and rolled on after for toons with appropriate level/profession caps.
Any issues with loot should be directed towards the Raid Leader only. Do NOT complain about loot otherwise.
Raiding Requirements and Rules
<Blood of the Exiled> is a progression raiding guild on US-Thunderhorn.
Our goal as a guild is to create an organized and fun environment where players can progress through Normal and Heroic content while pushing Mythic mode while content is still relevant. We do this on a 3 day per week schedule for 3 hours a night. The policies below are designed to easily explain our expectations for each raider and will be enforced for the overall quality of the team.
90% Raid Attendance
The team functions on a 3 day a week, 3 hours a night schedule unless changed by the raid leader. While real life does happen, you need to communicate that with leadership as soon as possible so we can schedule a replacement. However, if you can't commit to those days and times regularly, you cannot be a permanent member of the team. In the event of last minute issues, please get with leadership in-game, through our forums or via email ASAP.
Know your class and play it effectively
In order to succeed in any raid encounter, you must know the basics of your class. Knowing your rotation, keeping an eye on your cooldowns and generally knowing what raid utility your class is capable of is paramount to a raid’s success. If you’re a tank that can’t live, a healer who can’t keep people alive or a dps that can’t kill anything – then you’re not an effective part of the team. DOTs and Debuff uptimes should be 90% or higher, while self-buffs should be closer to 100% uptime. We will check these regularly through the use of combat logs. For assistance, don’t hesitate to contact guild leadership, we encourage it.
Keep up with your character out of raid
Being level-capped and showing up for raid are not the only pre-requisites for being a part of any raid team. You have to consider gear you can obtain outside of raid to help get through a raid. As expansion and patches come and go, we will amend this policy to coincide with any item available at the time, such as Legendary items. As a rule, every raider should be on top of any advantage we can take with us into raid.
Show up for Raid ready to play
Logging in late slows down the time we have to get into the raid and start clearing content. With only a limited time to play together, we have to maximize it. That means not only being on time, but also able to play at one’s best. We all have our bad nights, but showing up tired, sick or under the influence is a terrible way to start the night. Remember everybody else is giving their all; they deserve the respect that you’ll do the same.
Be respectful to other Raid Members
Sometimes, personality types don’t mesh. Add in some nerd rage and things can get out of hand quickly. However, all are encouraged to actively participate in raid via vent or chat. If you have a problem with someone, bring it up to leadership first and foremost. Do not let it go during raid.
Listen to your Guild Leader and Raid Leader
In order for us to progress, we need to have a plan. When the Raid Leader or Guild Leader are explaining something, you should listen. At no point in time does this include chatting in raid or guild chat about something that has nothing to do with raid. Listening is a sign of respect to those trying to organize and push this raid to success. We encourage a raider’s need for clarification if they don’t understand and will happily repeat as necessary. But, never make the Raid Leader or Guild Leader feel like the they are being ignored. This is very much an issue of Respect.
Be willing to take criticism, advice and help
This raid believes that good people can be good raiders. Something as simple as an uptime or class mechanic can easily be the culprit of bad performance. Thus, as leadership, we should be able to talk to any raider about how to perform better. If you cannot take constructive criticism, especially when not pulling you weight as part of the team, you have no place on the team.

These are boss encounters mods, displaying important events like spells and enemy cooldowns.
This is an audible alarm mod, set to go off when you're standing inside or near an AOE attack or void zone. It assists with the "dont stand in the fire" rule of raiding.
This is the addon we use to assist officers with the loot council. If you are part of the raid team and want loot you must have this.
We don't require this addon but we highly recommend it. It can help track and display a lot of information for raiding.
