Order of the Flaming Ruby is an Alliance guild
created to protect the free lands against
the evils of Azeroth and beyond. The Order
was founded by Protheus Mightweaver, a former
paladin of the Order of the Silver Hand and
close friend of Uther Lightbringer. When Mightweaver
left this world, command was given to Kinx
Quickblade, a renowned gnome rogue. The Order
had grown under Mightweaver and continued
to do so under the leadership of Quickblade.
Our goal is to grow
into a strong and brave society with two key
virtues in mind: morale and friendship. This
is no place for those weak of heart, as you
will encounter and fight the most vile creatures
imaginable. If you return victorious, with
treasure or no treasure in hand, you will
always value the victory higher than the lack
of treasure. The Order will grow strong with
high morale, teamwork and good organisation
and so we have no room for selfishness.
The Order began as
a band of friends, and we still want friendship
to play a central role in the guild. We strongly
encourage people to help eachother just for
the sake of helping. Conflicts and disagreements
will occur. Between friends, it will be solved
and learned from rather than break us apart.
We also want our soldiers and officers to
be positive and friendly, and back eachother
up if anyone has a bad day. UP
A soldier of The Order of the Flaming Ruby
must always be just and have the common good
as her or his top priority. You must not,
under any circumstance, insult anyone intentionally,
but act in a humble and diplomatic manner.
Arrogance is not accepted: if someone needs
help, you give it if you can. If you end up
in a party with useless men and women, you
help them as far as you can, and you try to
make them better. Yelling or cursing at them
won't make the situation better. A soldier
of The Order will make sure that she or he
can be trusted, and will work to better our
An officer of The Order
of the Flaming Ruby must act in the same helpful,
humble and diplomatic manner as our soldiers
do. You will also show strong leadership when
the duty of leading is given to you. When
not leading you will be easily lead, and not
complain on the leadership unless crucial.
You must work even harder to show The Order
from it's best side at all times. As an officer
you will spread the word of The Order and
make sure we recruit the best soldiers available.
a) All members are expected
to keep up to date on any orders, information
or guidelines given on the forums.
b) Breaking one or more
of the following rules may result in membership
a) Our guild chat is not
of the strictest. But you will use common
sense, never spam and write as good as you
can. The guild chat is OOC. However, you will
keep in character in /say and in parties with
members that require it.
b) You do not need to write
perfect english grammar, but we do not tolerate
constant leetspeak (omgomg!!111 t3h f14|\/|i|\|g
r00by i5 t3h 1337357 3v4h!!!!!11oneone) or
letters substituted for words (u for you,
r for are etc.). Playing a character that
has a certain way of speaking is allowed (accents,
speech impediments etc.) In other words, what
is described in Blizzard's Roleplaying Policy.
a) An official guild raid
is a raid that is approved by either the High
Commander, the Luminary, a Councillor or a
b) Any raid that is not
official will use rolling for distributing
d) Only 25-man instance
raids give RLP, and these will be the regular
e) All Raid Force members
are expected to be prepared for all raids.
f) All Raid Force members
are expected to be able to use voice communication.
e) Alternate characters
will be taken if they're seen as beneficial
for the raid. In other words, you raid with
your main character if not the Raidleader
asks you to bring your alt.
How to Act
a) If you are going AFK,
state so clearly to an Officer, with reason,
and estimated time away, please remember to
use /afk to turn AFK on or off, and check
if you are when back.
b) If you are leaving raid,
tell the Raid Leader before the next encounter.
If you know when you have to leave before
the raid starts, tell an Officer when.
c) If there is something
that is not clear about your role, and what
you are doing, or supposed to do, state this
clearly to the Raid Leader.
d) Pay attention to what
the Officers tells you.
e) If you think we are lacking
priests, or druids, or any class, do NOT say
'We're never going to make it!' in raidchat.
Rather tell the Raidleader if you think he/she
hasn't thought through it.
f) When there is the subject
of loot, bidding, and distributing, congratulate
your friend outside /ra. Noone needs a cluttered
raidchat, thus losing important information.
g) The same goes for normal
chatting, please keep it outside /ra, since
too much important information might be lost,
and lost information can mean lost battle.
This goes for buff requests as well.
h) Don't whine, we don't
want whining, atleast not so we can read or
hear it. 'CRAP! I died, again!' works but
not 'Wtf, why the hell are you letting me
die all the time, heal ffs!'. You whine, you
get a warning, you don't listen, you don't
i) Respect the fact that
some are in command, and you are not. You
can claim to be in command, when you have
shown you can be in command, till then, make
quiet suggestions as to not disturb someone
already stressed or busy making the raid go
j) Discipline is important,
maintain focus, and relax when you can. If
you are not up to it, leave the raid, or take
k) If you are not in the
mood, bad mood, or simply just not the person
to endure a long raiding marathon, don't raid,
simple as that. The leaders will notice if
you are not suited to raid, and act accordingly.
l) If something goes wrong,
don't point fingers at anyone, with the exception
of yourself, and what you did, unless it is
constructive, and politely phrased. UP
a) Everyone participating
in 25-man raids (see 3.1a) is entitled to
receive Ruby Loot Points (RLP).
b) Talking about loot is
not allowed. Planning to pass, discussing
bids or anything of the kind is strictly forbidden.
Even if it may seem friendly to you, it's
horribly unfair to everyone else, and it destroys
the system. Do NOT talk about loot.
c) Squires don’t get
RLP, the RLP is given to the main character.
d) No member may have less
than 200 negative RLP (-200). Trial Members
or guests can’t have negative RLP at
all. Noone may bid on an item if that results
in them having RLP below their limit, except
in the case described in §4. RLP from
earlier slain bosses, attendance and extra
time in the current raid counts.
e) When an item is dropped,
the bidding starts. The bidding rounds are
as follows: (1)Needers with equal to or more
RLP than the minimum bid of the item, (2)
Needers with RLP of 0 or higher, (3) needers
with less than 0 RLP, (4) needers which will
go below their limit after bidding, (5) everyone
else. At (3); noone can exceed their limit
with more than 50 RLP.
one participant of the raid needs the item,
he or she will get in for the minimum RLP
or more participants need the item, bidding
begins. This is done silently and only to
the Loot Manager of the raid. Bids must be
over the item’s minimum RLP cost. If
the bids are equal, the ones concerned go
bid silently again. If they bid alike again,
they go into an open bidding.
participants want an item, then it will be
f) Players that go offline
will be awarded with RLP if they can provide
a valid reason as to why they did so.

h) Each boss give RLP.
