    New Girl Guild on Moonglade EU

    Pursuant to the post here, I’d like to invite everyone who might be interested to check out Guilded Lilies, a new all-girls alliance guild on Moonglade EU. (Yes, I spent last night on a baby lock, working on the ten silver needed for the charter – if you have a main that seemingly has gold coming out of every orifice, it’s funny to realise how much work you have to put into a new character just to get ten silver!)

    To recap, I was interested in joining an all-girls guild with my alts, because in most guilds only your main is welcome to the large instances, and your alt, even if allowed a peek into ZG or AQ20, can’t compete for drops on the same basis as mains. It would be nice to have a fun, social home for beloved alts, and also hopefully have a guild that could grow to the point where we could do some instances. Being alt-friendly, the guild would have to make allowances for main raid nights.

    Moonglade was suggested by several people, and in the time I spent last night I could see that it seemed ok. Very little of the fourteen-year-old illiterate trash talk in LFG, which was refreshing; I didn’t see much roleplay, though – that may be confined to players that you know.

    So, interested? If we can get a group together, I’ll be moving a mid-forties nelf hunter named Kitsunecho and a mid-twenties mage named Catweazel from Aggramar.

    There isn’t a forum yet, but there is an LJ community, . I’ll work on the site and forum next (I’m a web developer and designer by trade.) Oh, and the name? Willing to change it, but I thought it would be nice to have something different from the usual faux-latin names, the overly-dramatic testosterone ones, and so on. ;)

    Misc Catch-up

    Well, I’ve been doing a few more raids with the guild, so that makes me happier. Here’s my BWL experience so far:

    Dead, View of Nefarian’s ButtI’ve started a baby warrior that I really like (yes, I’m the Queen of Alts). I really, truly, abysmally suck as a tank, but she is fun. In part, I think, because I have no intention of ever wanting the responsibility of being a tank in a large instance. So, no pressure…no endgame for her, and I don’t care if she ever gets to 60. We can just have fun, running around and bashing things in our incompetent way. :)

    I’d still like to find an all-girl guild for my alts. The raiding guild doesn’t welcome alts in raids to any great extent, so I would like to find a mid-level all-girl guild that could help each other level up. I love the idea of a really kickass girl guild, but I’ve never seen one that a) played seriously, or b) wanted to keep the guild free of boyfriends/husbands.

    Any girls out there with some alts that just wanna have fun with the other girls? ;)

    Levelling

    Ever have someone in your guild that you really, truly despise?

    My warlock is level 55 now, soon to be 56, and I am finally thinking about getting serious about making the final push to 60, and attunement for MC, Onyxia, etc. I hadn’t wanted to rush it, considering that it’s all over after that except for raiding; with my alts still working on quests, though, perhaps it will be ok.

    I admit that part of my lack of excitement about reaching 60 is due to my extreme irritation with one person in the guild, who is only interested in raiding and PvP. When I say irritation, I mean irritation to the point of wanting to leave the guild because finding a new guild and starting over would be a more attractive option than listening to her dominating guild chat all night. Quitting the game, at times, would be preferable to listening to the mindless void with verbal diarrhea that will not shut up about herself. When someone congratulated her recently on reaching 60, she said “thanks, well, everyone really wanted me to reach 60, so I did.” That’s big of you, hun – how generous to do it for the good of the guild. Grrr….

    We have had months of her pestering everyone to let her come on raids even though her character was in the 50’s. She has been demanding help since I started playing, then typing /cry, /cry more to make it clear that she’s pouting. Just recently she was asking for mats for fire resistant gear, and when told that the tanks get that gear first, she got all huffy and said that she’d have to buy them for herself if the guild didn’t help her out.

    She is the sand in my virtual thong. And I can’t let it go, because she’s impossible to ignore. I’m not sure what to do.

    Ok, rant over. But I dread logging on at night and seeing that she’s on.
