Throne of Thunder and Philosophies on Raiding

As with all guilds who wish to raid and progress through current content, Coram Populo faces the same challenges and trials that present themselves to raiders at large.  Team composition, fight tactics, gear distribution and balancing the needs of each individual with the needs of the team all come into play in any end-game PvE content environment.

At Coram Populo, we have elected to take a balanced approach to progressing through raids and current content.  While we all are serious about raiding, we are also serious about having fun.  Of course, there are times when we all have to buckle down and put our noses to the grind about improving our performances individually and as a team.  There are times when rules and policies have to be in place and enforced so that the team feels as though everyone is doing his or her best to perform to the greatest of his or her abilities.  But, at the end of the day, we play this game to have fun and enjoy ourselves.  The instant that we cease to do so, the instant the game stops being worth our time and effort.

We raid two nights a week, a schedule that fits many of our core raiders’ busy work schedules and family obligations.  We utilize DKP to track individual attendance and the performance of the team.  We mandate the use of vent before, during and after the raid so that communication is seamless and structured.  We never yell at one another and we never single people out individually during the raid.  We would rather help than denigrate, something which improves team morale and aids in creating a healthier guild environment.

Many of us have been playing World of Warcraft and other games with each other for many years, even decades.  We’ve always managed to perform well as a team while never losing ourselves and our friendships in the process.  It’s a balancing process, but one that we wouldn’t have any other way.
