Guild Information and Class Need (READ FIRST!) - Updated 11/2023
« on: September 15, 2016, 02:59:41 AM »
Welcome!

Valhallah is a current-content raiding guild on the Firiona Vie server. The guild was created in late 2013 and has since finished with a "top 10" ranking for every expansion since the release of Empires of Kunark in 2016. This includes our third-place finish in The Burning Lands, which is still somehow the most worthwhile "measuring stick" since the expansion released in 2018! Through conquering Mearatas, the expansion's incredibly trying and highly contested end-game encounter, we are extremely proud to have our name placed aside some of the most storied and successful raiding guilds in EverQuest's history!

In short, Valhallah is home to some of the best players on the Firiona Vie server, and if you'd like to experience EverQuest and all it has to offer while being part of a team that is focused, time-efficient, dedicated, and driven, please continue reading below! If we sound like something you'd be interested in, the following information will tell you about the guild and how to contact a member of leadership to complete your application!

Best of luck, and we look forward to seeing you in Norrath!


General Information
  • Raiding Schedule. Valhallah raids on Mondays from 7:50PM to approximately 11:00PM ET. Depending on how much content there is in a given expansion, the schedule can sometimes include Tuesdays during the same hours. Tuesdays don't happen often, but it's important to know that they're very possible based on a variety of reasons (e.g., Needing more time to complete our farm, going back to complete achievements in older expansions, etc.), and they will still be included in your attendance records when they occur.
  • Raiding Is Not Optional. If you are online and at your keyboard we expect you to make the effort to raid, and we ask you to make the commitment to raid on as many days as you can comfortably fit into your schedule. The more reliable raiders we have, the more consistency we have from fully-flagged players whom understand how the events work. If you have questions or concerns about your availability, please contact a member of leadership before submitting an application.
  • If there are any questions about the information you find in this thread, please don't hesitate to get in touch with any member of leadership via /tells, in-game mail, or forum PM:

    • Guild Leader(s): Zlauk
      Raid Leader(s): Zlauk
      Attendance Admin(s): Ssdar, Amanyta
      Loot Admin(s): Reisil, Amanyta
      General Leadership: Alarya, Caisy, Slivern


Loot Policy
  • Merit-Based Loot System. Loot is assigned to Valhallah raiders through a council that is governed by the entire leadership as a whole. Contrary to popular belief, such a system is NOT simply "pick the favorites," and it is actually regulated by a very well-kept and unique database that tracks the loot history of our members. Players will qualify for loot at the end of each raid if their 30-day attendance rating is at or above 65%. Players maintaining a 30-day attendance rating of 75% or higher will be given tiebreaker precedence in the event of equal (or mostly equal) loot histories. Traditional variables such as performance and total loot volume will always be factored into each decision as well.


Applicant Requirements and Recommendations


*** Please note that your application can still be processed even if you do not currently meet the requirements listed below. We will offer "Prospect" status to those that need a little bit of time and assistance to progress their character to raid-ready status, and you are strongly encouraged to talk to a member of leadership if you don't meet one or more conditions listed below!
  • Level 120 (Hard Requirement): In order to attend a raid with Valhallah, your character must be level 120. While there is no formal AA count required, please be aware that we expect you to have more than the autogranted (bare minimum) value, and that we are looking for respectable progression on your amount of spent AAs throughout your entire application period.
  • Discord (Hard Requirement): While it is not a requirement to speak, it is a requirement to be on our Discord server and listening during raid time. The entire raid is ran solely through Discord, and although it's unfortunate, not being able to accommodate this requirement will result in the failure of your application.
  • Inventory Profile (Hard Requirement): Your application will not be accepted unless you have a valid, functioning link for a Raidloot Inventory Profile or Magelo Profile for the character you're applying with. One of these is absolutely mandatory so that we can ensure our applicants are not wearing complete garbage before we throw raid gear at them. Please note that this includes Type 3, Type 5, and Type 7 and 8 augments, and profiles displaying a lack of augments or a lack of effort will be automatically declined. There is a walkthrough post available here if you have questions.
  • Have Thick Skin (Hard Requirement): Please be aware that Valhallah fosters a very unique, closed-door atmosphere that is intended for mature adults. Grab a pair of headphones and turn the screen away from children if you must, but getting a sandy vagina over hearing and seeing the phrase "sandy vagina" (or having your name called out for failing emotes!) is a very tell-tale sign that you will not enjoy your time in Valhallah.
  • EQ Log Parser: It's not a hard requirement, but it's incredibly beneficial to you as a raider to download EQ Log Parser (EQLP) in order to keep track of and satisfy the many different types of audio triggers and emotes that will occur during raid time. You may use another program or method if you wish, but the upkeep and maintenance will fall solely on your shoulders! Please note that failing to satisfy important emotes and audio triggers on raids because you use something other than EQLP is not an acceptable excuse.


Valhallah Class Need

  • Updated November, 2023 - Valhallah is currently recruiting players of all classes whom project a high raid attendance. We will take special interest in Enchanters, Rangers, and Shamans!


The Application Process

  • It's simple! SHOW US PROGRESS. There are plenty of folks that are willing to help you push your limits, obtain more AAs, obtain more levels, work on group progression and other related missions, etc., etc. The more willing you are to implement and discuss the advice you're given, the quicker you progress through levels and AAs, and the more you show up to raids, the quicker we'll be to grant you the status of a full member. It's really as simple as that!


How To Apply

  • Create a Username. It will help tremendously if your username matches the name of your main, raiding character that you are applying with. If you are unaware of how to register or need help, please view the SMF Wiki on Registering a Username. If you're still having trouble afterward, contact any member of leadership.
  • Mail Your Application. Copy and paste the Valhallah Application into a private message which you will then send to Zlauk and at least one other member of leadership as they are listed above. Please title the subject of your PM "APPLICANT: Name". Please remember that applications will not be accepted without a valid Raidloot Inventory Profile or Magelo Profile, and that your application is our very first impression of you. In other words, make it count!
  • Pending Approval. If your application is accepted, you will be contacted by a member of leadership in the following days to discuss your invite to the guild. If there are any problems or concerns, it's possible they could be communicated via PM, so remember to check back every day just in case!

Thank you for reading, and best of luck!
