Track Player Guild History with Wowtrack!

One of the burning questions guild recruiters want answered is whether or not a applicant is a guild hopper. Guilds tend to look for players who are in it for the long haul. Someone who has a history of changing guilds every few weeks might signify a problem. Even if it isn’t, it’s still […]

Guild Leadership vs Raid Leadership

One of the common questions asked by new GMs or new raid leaders is what are the key differences or similarities between the two positions. In smaller guilds, the raid leader is the guild leader. In larger guilds, it’s often beneficial to separate the two roles especially if there is more than one raid team. If […]

What Skills do Heroic Raiders Need?

Several nights ago, my guild was working on Siegecrafter Blackfuse. Argued as one of the more difficult (albeit satisfying) encounters of the game, I can see where much of the frustration stems from. There are so many events going on that it can be overwhelming to even the most seasoned of players.

Is it Time to Re-evaluate Your Guild’s Focus?

This post was resurrected from Chick GM.

So unless you’re living under a rock, then you know they’ve announced the launch date for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor – November 13th, 2014. And, unless you’re still under that rock, you also probably know that the 6.0 Public Test Realm servers are now live, and […]

What Defines a Core Raider?

Have you ever come across recruiting posts specifying that they’re looking for a core raider? Is there a major difference between that and a standard raider?

Allow me to explain here.

No guild is stable without a firm backbone. Sure you have your officers, your raid leader, and guild master to help direct traffic and handle […]

Building an Officer Team

Start small – Many new guild leaders select their officers from their first few recruits. However, your guild and its needs will grow and change a lot in the first few month. I recommend choosing one officer out of your first ten recruits and temporarily place them in charge of recruitment. Unless you find […]

Leadership Responsibilities and You: A Primer

This post was resurrected from Chick GM.
Here at Guild Masters, we talk a lot about what makes a good guild. We also talk a lot about the strong leadership that goes into those good guilds. Sometimes, if we’re feeling nice, we’ll even mention what we mean by “strong leadership” and “good guilds”. However, what […]

Guild Website Front Page and Best Practices

The main page is one of the most important aspects of your guild website. It’s the main portal by which your members (prospective or otherwise) can keep up with the latest events in the guild. What should a new guild leader plan for when trying to make a suitable first impression? What components are essential […]

Archeage Announced!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Archeage, the medieval fantasy MMORPG developed by Korean studio XL Games. While it’s been out in Eastern territories like South Korea and Russia for a while now, the rest of us have been waiting (im)patiently for Trion games to give us a release […]
