Syntax is now accepting applications for raid slots. We are
only accepting applications from players who are level 50 and who have high
play times between 6-11pm EST. If you are interested, check out our recruitment
forums for more information. You can also talk to one of our officers in game
if you have any questions about the guild, but here is a quick rundown:
Q. Who is Syntax?
A. We are a group of highly experience veteran MMORPG players who just don't
have the hardcore schedule available to us anymore. We raid with the schedule
of a casual guild but strive to kill the same content as any hardcore guild.
We'll just do it smarter, faster, and not quite as often ;)
Q. Why should I join?
A. Syntax is a fairly new group of people looking to find a place in the game.
We don't have any major restrictions on recruitment as of today and we're all
knowledgeable about the game as a whole. Joining now would mean a guaranteed
raid slot, no probationary period, and bragging rights to say you where here
from the start.
Q. How do raids work?
A. Syntax will be raiding 3 nights a week: Mon/Wed/Sat 6-11pm EST. If you can't
make the majority of these raid times, please don't apply. We have an
attendance requirement of 75%; if you fall below this % you will be demoted
from raider status until you can bring it back up. We only raid 3 nights a
week, so when we do meet up we expect you to be prepared and ready to get
things done. Raids may end early or late depending on the content but we'll
always shoot for 11pm as a stopping point.
A. Raid loot will be distributed based on an officer voting system. The
officers will discuss any raid loot and distribute it based on your attendance,
current gear, playtime, contributions, and other factors. We will spread it as
evenly and fairly as possible. Generally we will post the item in raid chat and
ask anyone interested to send the officer a tell. The officers will then meet
quickly in vent and discuss those who are interested. After a vote, the officer
will assign the item to the winner. Here is the loot order which is not up for
discussion: Raiders->Members->Recruits->Alts. Also please note that we
will be expecting you to gear up for your main role as a raider. We realize
this game allows you to change roles on the fly but if we recruit you as a
Tank, you should only be trying to win tank gear - leave the dps gear for those
we will use it on raids.
Q. So if I want to join, what do I do now?
A. If you have any questions, let an officer now in game. If not, then just hit
the Apply button at the top of the website. You'll fill out a simple questionnaire
and an officer will get with you shortly. Once you are invited to the guild,
you'll be a recruit for a few days until we get to know you and then promoted
to member if we decide you're worth keeping. When you can tell us your main
raid role and have at least some T1 gear we'll bump you up to raider status.
Please note this will change once we fill out the roster a bit and we will
probably have a 2 week recruitment period at that time. Now is the time to join
to avoid that.
Q. Anything to do outside of raids?
A. We run expert dungeons and rifts every night. We also try to run simple
raids when we can, sometimes with a few pugs since we aren't a full roster yet.
We're always looking for people to start up groups and get things rolling so
don't expect to be bored often... we get you moving ;)
