The backbone of the guild and what keeps us going are our Event Runners. They are the individuals who freely give their time to the guild to allow us to maintain an active schedule of events of various types. Event Runners are experienced players who are willing to share their experience and knowledge with other guild members in order to help all of us enjoy the game to it's fullest extent. Without Event Runners the guild would have no events.
Anyone can volunteer to become an Event Runner. You can volunteer to run any event you'd like. You should have a good working knowlege of the event, any mechanics associated with the event and the basics of forming a group and administering an operations group. This include forming up a group, converting to an ops group and managing loot during an event. Event Runners should also be familiar with installing and configuring Teamspeak and helping others to do the same.
Being an Event Runner can mean a lot of work. Organizing events, advertising events and getting support from the player base is key to hosting successful events. Studying mechanics, scouting locations and gathering needed materials for events is also critical to ensure a smoothly run event. Event Runners must also be well versed in the guilds rules and regulations regarding our events and must ensure adherance to the high standards the guild holds our events up to.
