Narrow Path is first and foremost about providing a safe, christian environment for people to enjoy World of Warcraft. With that said, we believe that raiding is a significant portion of the game, and something that many of our members would like to take part in. We allow all members of the guild to sign up for our "guild sponsored" raids.
Because of the fixed number of people allowable in a raid, we recognize that it will not be possible to always include everyone in each raid they wish to attend. However we will attempt to provide as many avenues as possible for people to participate as they desire.
While we do not want to ever put raiding in front of people, we do recognize the desire to raid and the desire to challenge ourselves and progress on content. While raiding is not the primary focus of our time in WoW, we do take raiding seriously and will make our best efforts to make NP raiding enjoyable and successful.
As the good folks at Blizzard change their approach to the game, we have attempted to respond in the opportunities for raiding that we provide as a guild.
At this point in the expansion, there has been little demand or interest for guild level "flex" raiding. As such, we have stopped running those events for the foreseeable future.
There is currently a 25 man normal / heroic group running every other Tuesday jointly sponsored by NP and our friends in By His Stripes. If you have interest in this group, please ask in game and someone can direct you to the officers leading the combined group. This will be continuing as long as interest remains.
"Progression" raiding in NP is currently handled by individual 10 man teams. Contact the leaders of those teams to see what openings are currently available.
By joining Narrow Path you have agreed that you understand that this is a guild based on Christian principles, and you have agreed to abide by them. While there are always going to be differing interpretations of what some of those principles are, love God and love one another is fairly clear and straightforward. We can disagree, we can be frustrated, but in the end we are commanded to love one another as Christ has loved us.
10 man teams may have their own requirements, please contact those teams directly.
25 Man Loot System
The system currently used in the combined run is a simple 1 need, unlimited greed system, with the reminder "don't be a pig". in this system you are allowed one need win per lockout, with unlimited greed rolls and wins. It is encouraged, however, that you consider others as well, and if you are on a "winning streak" and others are interested in items as well, that we try to share the love (and more importantly the loot)
Car's personal final note
I've said variations on this in a lot of places on this forum, but we all like shinies, and we all like nice new loot. This is, however, a Christian guild, and it is strongly suggested that you consider your fellow guildmates and raiders in your personal decisions. I do not want to suggest to people that they do not roll on items to which they may have a legitimate claim, but I do ask that you consider both yourself and others in all of your actions, including loot decisions. Here's to NP continuing to enjoy the raiding success that we have had.
