I am pleased to announce the return of our all star x16 nightmare raid team the Nightmare Crusaders. This is a group of excellent raiders from across the guild with Tizia, the Master of Nightmares as their squad leader.
What is an "all star" team? It's a term used in sports as a shortened way of saying "the team is all star players". The Crusaders will be tackling the most difficult content in the game so the team will be a mix of highly skilled people from our x8 raid teams along with a few lone wolves. Think of it as a group of people that want to do something special on a day they are not raiding with their main teams.
When? They will raid each Saturday afternoon at 13:00 GMT/UTC. This was intentionally chosen to avoid conflicting with our x8 teams schedules and general events.
Trials will begin on Saturday December 22nd with the first official raid planned for Saturday January 5th.
Ability to multi-class/multi-role (i.e swap roles/classes if we are short on specific roles/classes)
At least basic nightmare experience
Prompt and ready for raids
Reliable about attendance or giving plenty of notice of planned absences
Able to get on Starparse and Teamspeak
Preferably able to use discord for communication outside of the raid
How to apply Please send a mail to Tizia on the site or in-game letting him know about your class, experience, the primary role you are applying for, your secondary role if you have one and anything else you would like to add about yourself.
I'm great, why am I not on the team? There are limited spots. Tizia is aiming to have 20 people as permanent members of the team. Our past experience with fixed x16 teams is that with so many people it can be an issue to ensure that all 16 can be there each time. By having 20 people it means there should be enough people most weeks.
But I'm waaaaaay better than some of the Crusaders, why am I not on the team? Tizia is aiming for a chilled group who can focus on objectives while handling their areas of expertise, not a group of prima donnas who think they are better than everybody else.
Will they be using Nightmare Crystals? Nah, we don't consider it progress if crystals are used.
