Whoa, where did the last year go? So much has changed and so much more to come. The Errant Pride is officially 9 years old now (next month we’ll be celebrating our 9th year on Feathermoon).

As I think of what’s in store for 2014 in my personal life and with the guild in WoW I can’t help but take a trip down memory lane to where it all began for me.  Care to join me down that rabbit hole?

New EP Guild Championship Event

The time has come for us to once again select a new Champion of the Errant Pride.

Who will the Titleholder be?

Do you have what it takes to rise to the challenge?  Are you a Contender or merely a Pretender?

The date is still TBD, but in the meantime if you’re interested in participating as a Challenger then head on over to the For the Horde section of our Forums and sign up!

Warlords & the Errant Pride

So the announcement’s a few weeks old now, but yep the new expansion is going to be World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor (WoD).  Without going into a whole lot of detail and risking spoiler-talk right now I just want to share some links to other blog articles that cover all the goodies in case you’ve been living under a rock.

 

Warlords of Draenor: 5 cool things you may have missed at BlizzCon 2013

  • This is a WoWInsider roundup of 5 nifty things that didn’t get a whole lot of coverage.

Warlords of Draenor – Raid Changes

  • Ten Ton Hammer breaks down the raid changes.  This will be a huge change for us as a guild and how we handle our rosters.  Our Officers will be planning things a lot between now and launch.  Basically with the flexible format now being standard we can strive to ramp back up towards having a regular 25man crew.  The best part is we’ll now also be able to invite across other servers to fill any openings.

Warlords of Draenor’s gear system and spirit as a secondary stat

  • It’s a pretty huge change…  just go read it.

Warlords of Draenor: UI Improvements

  • A lot of user interface changes coming that sound great.  Especially the part about a new storage mechanism to free your bag space of all those vanity toys!

There’s more out there, but this is about all I can go into right now that won’t involve spoilery-stuff.

 

 

Announcing New Officer Promotions!

Towards the end of every expansion I like to take a look at the guild and prepare for the future. This time around those include updating guild policies such as relaxing our current recruitment policy, and increasing everyone’s allotment for daily guild repairs. The change that always excites me the most though comes from rewarding guild members for their dedication and loyalty through promotions.

As we prepare to launch into the future it’s always important to ensure that the Pride has a strong foundation which is even more important when your guild leader can’t be as active as the guild might necessarily need during the transition of the ever popular “end of expansion blues” through the impending spike of activity that will come with the rollout of a new expansion.

As a dictator it’s usually difficult selecting new officers. However, this time around the promotions practically picked themselves. Each of the members chosen have stepped up during the last expansion and in their individual ways demonstrated a commitment to the guild and leadership.

I’m promoting Kohva and Ghaeran (aka Norlash) to “Pride Lord” to reward them for their years of service and loyalty to me as well as their strong dedication in helping to keep the day to day of the guild running.

We’ve also chosen a variety of new Lt’s in an effort to provide coverage at various times throughout the week and provide equal support for the guild in both PvE and PvP.

I’m thrilled to formally announce six new Lieutenants within the <Errant Pride>!

  • Alixiana
  • Darch
  • Discotheque
  • Glaciermane
  • Mélori
  • Zanati

Congratulations guys and gals. Again, thank you for your membership and all the hard work you put into the guild; I look forward to working with you and seeing where we lead things going forward into “Warlords of Draenor”.

Getting back into the Swing of Things

Well hey there strangers. I’ve been pretty much inactive since the start of the summer and though my in-game presence isn’t going to change too much until this summer I’m looking to increase my activity here, on the forums, and over on Feathermap.

With the announcement of a new expansion there definitely is a whole lot to talk about and I can’t wait to get started!

We’re still looking for eager writers who are looking to contribute informational blogs and opinion pieces. If you’re interested hit me up with a PM on the guild forums.
