About the Guild
Rotten is a Raiding and PvP guild on the Executus (US PvP) realm, Horde side. Our general goal as a guild is to progress through PvE content while also holding true to our roots as a PvP oriented guild. Rotten was formed in the first week of the Executus server as a PvP guild dedicated to Battleground dominance and all forms of organized PvP. For most of The Burning Crusade, Rotten was a semi-casual PvP guild known for dominating Battlegrounds with full or partial premade groups. Prior to the launch of Wrath of the Lich King, we decided to shift guild focus towards PvE progression. We very rapidly progressed through 10 man raids with weekly 1 night full clears of Naxx, and as of 2009 we became commited to progressing through 10 and 25 man raiding.
Our current guild focus is ICC 10 progression, and our 10 man raids take place Tuesday and Thursday nights, starting at 9 PM server time (Central) and lasting up to 4 hours. 25 man ICC is organized on Friday and/or Saturday nights in co-op with partnering guilds.
We expect all of our members to be exceptional players. This means expert knowledge and ability with your own class as well as understanding the function and abilities of other classes. In raids you are expected to use a PvE build that is ideal for raiding. Raiding members are expected to be gearing through Heroics, using the appropriate gems/enchants and actively progressing their character.
Rotten uses Ventrilo for voice communication during raids. In order to raid with us, you will need to be able to use Ventrilo to listen to instructions. If you do not have a microphone or are otherwise unable to speak over voice chat, we expect that you will be able to create macros to communicate anything that would otherwise be done via voice chat during raid encounters that require them. During raids we ask that all chatter is kept to a minimum, and at all times you will be expected to refrain from making offensive comments in both vent and guild chat.
Our DKP system is currently suspended. Loot is distributed by a master looter.
Roll system: Current spec > Current off spec, unless otherwise pre-arranged. All BoE items are kept until the end of the raid, and distributed based on performance and need.
View our Wrath of the Lich King DKP numbers. We will wipe the data when Cataclysm raiding begins.
Zero Sum DKP
Rotten uses a Zero Sum DKP system for 25 man raids, and a Master Looter open roll system for 10 man raids. Our open roll system is based on need before greed with main-spec priority. The zero sum system for 25 man raids is tracked using EQdkp on this website. We also have established a raider rank for active and reliable raiders, which can be earned by any raiding member after the 2 week recruitment period. The Raider rank is mainly used to determine raid rosters and tie breakers. Details are available on our forums.
Rotten has a very strong background as a PvP guild. As such, several of our members are very dedicated to PvP and in some cases prefer it to raiding. Rotten remains a great guild for people interested in organized PvP. We do provide guild arena 5v5 teams. The only requirement is that no one comes to raids with a PvP build.
Friends, Family, and Non-Raiders
Friends and family of raiding members, as well as players who are not interested in raiding at all are also welcome in the guild.
