Dol Amroth - US

    The guild started in EQ in 2000 and was best known in alliance with Echoes in Eternity - DA/EiE

     

    A few old DA members started Dol Amroth in Rift where it is still an active progression raiding guild. We clear all current top tier content weeky.

     

    I intend to move DA to Pantheon along with anyone who wants to come, about 14 so far. If a significant amount of people want to stay with Rift I will give the guild so someone and move with the people who want to go. I am only inviting our top raiders, those who have shown commitment to the end game raiding scene and all that involves. 

     

    The guild goal will be character development with focus on gearing for raid content and competing for achievements server and game wide.

     

    If you are looking for an experienced and well coordinated guild to raid with, one with high standards but not completely gonzo on weekly raid hours required we are interested in you.

    Just an update. Dol Amroth is still going strong in Rift and grinding to raid ready in the recent expansion. We still await the Alpha date here in Pantheon and will have a strong presence once it hits. I fully intend to hit the ground running here in Pantheon and can't wait to start.

    Ah, DA/EiE. Good times from the olden days of EQ.

    Dol Amroth is still actively raiding in Rift and is 7/8 on current content. We still plan on moving here on launch day with a formed and ready to go guild. Please read the original post and feel free to message me here or post in this thread if interested in a raid focused guild.

    Hey there!  What are your typical raid days/times??

    In Rift we raid Thurs, Mon and Tues from 845pm to 1130pm eastern. Since we currently clear all current top tier content on Thursday night we have been testing a new raid Mon and Tues on the test server. We will reconfigure our schedule when the time comes if needed but what will remain constant is no weekend scheduled raids and never going beyond scheduled raid end. We are all adults with family and we have to get more done with less time. This is why the raid team is hand picked and dedicated.

    Sounds pretty good!  How many folks do you have with PA access for Pantheon at this point?  I will be looking for a guild once PA is announced - raided some in EQ as an enchanter and extensively (6+ years) in EQ2 as main tank group coercer.  Definately want to raid in Pantheon but also want to enjoy the newness of it all and not rush to level cap.  Really looking forward to treating Terminus as a living world and less as content to race through.  That can be difficult to do for those of us with a healthy competitive spirit but I am really going to try!  Where do your thoughts fall on this?  

    Sorry for all the questions! :)

    The focus for Dol Amroth in Pantheon will be the same as it is in Rift. We stress team formation and progression both in character and raid. We try our best to balance that with the goal of not leaving anyone behind that is willing to work. When I get a recruit request in Rift I explain to them the guild is raid focused and if casual play is important to them they might find themselves a bit lonely. We stress game play with a character development goal. Our raid teams spots are competitive in that there are no guaranteed spots. The best are on the team and that "best" can change. If the raid content allows a few carries that's fine but progression requires a set and dedicated team.

     

    I would say my biggest focus running the guild over the years is to prevent the formation of cliques. I feel cliques and loot are the two biggest guild killers in an MMO. I don't allow group formation via tells and insist all groups are formed in guild chat and that they are open to all who qualify for the intended content. I don't like or allow informal "static groups". This leads to haves and have nots, hard feelings and guild turnover.

     

    I don't like a guild with page upon page of rules and policies attempting to cover every possible situation with a writen rule. A good guildy is a bit like pornography, it's hard to describe but I know it when I see it. We don't have and won't have councils to decide on recruits, veto power, applications and formal interview sessions. We built Dol Amroth in Rift by developing a reputation in game and people who are attracted to that reputation naturally gravitate to the guild. 

     

    In short Dol Amroth is and will be a guild with a focus on end game raiding and doing what is needed to get our members ready for that. We temper that goal with a need to be inclusive. A successful MMO guild is one that understands that leadership is there to make the game better for the members, not the other way around.

    What time zone is DA looking to raid in? I am in CST zone and can typically function in a EST zone if raids start at 8pm.

     

    Thanks,

    Howdy, 

     

    I am interested in your guild, at what stage are you guys kicking off formation?

     

    Thanks!

    To answer a few posts above:

    We presently raid (in Rift) on Thurs / Mon / Tues from 845 to 1130pm eastern. I anticipate starting off with that since most of the original members will be from DA in Rift.

     

    I will be setting up the guild (if allowed) during Alpha just to work out and report any bugs in the guild module we find and to post info to each other. I have a Discord voice channel we use for Rift and will just add a Pantheon section to it. 

     

    We are always looking for grinders, people not afraid to step into new content, sight unseen, and spend the time to conquer it. DA in Rift is a tight knit organization that has been clearing current raid content for a long time and starts new raids the night it drops. We don't wait for guides to be published. We stress personal responsibility but don't do that whole "public dress downs" crap. We do trim our raid teams, cutting from the bottom when better people are found - the overall theory is the best people raid. This keeps people improving their gear and focus during raids. People replaced on the raid team are put on the backup list to fill for the expected work and family raid mia's. 

    If this sounds like something you want to be involved in, from the ground floor, just post here or PM me here and I'll keep updating this forum as we get closer.

     

    As for me - I can't wait. Hurry up Brad, break out the whips, substitute Visionary Bucks for real money if you have to as I'm sure the coders and artists will be fine with that :)

    We were guildmates back in the old days- maybe you remember my enchanter Dyschorda from the time we were in Brewmasters together. I am currently signed up for alpha access and looking to get in a solid raid guild- M/T/Th works perfectly for my work/family schedule as well. Shoot me a PM old friend!

    We have started our web site for those who would like to register to Dol Amroth - Pantheon. We intend to form up for Alpha testing and play test together with emphasis on bug reports. If you are interested please follow the link below. I'm still writing the Creation Document so please have a bit of patience. Link below:

    The application is a rough place holder so don't sweat it much.

    Hello,

    I am interested in joining your guild. I used to play EQ1 and I remember seeing Dol Amroth when I was playing. I feel like I would be a good fit with this guild. If you would like to know more about me, please feel free to ask. I would be willing to be any class dependent on need. But my preference would be necromancer if the gameplay is similar. However, it looks like the class may not make launch. If not, my second preference is cleric. I am located in the EST. To ascertain my enthusiasm and dedication, I am a Triumvirate Pledge.

    Hydrogen.

    So, this is Thecklos (and Beckah is my wife) for anyone that remembers us back in the day.  I was an original DA founding member (post Harbingers of Storm - early Rodcet Nife EQ stuff - was mostly known as Celegrom at the guild founding time.)  I was one of the Guild Leader before Phad and after I think it was Kardot (as Thecklos), but not positive there.)  Anyway, it seems like your sign up and site is kind of dead (nobody has paid for extending it in a while.)  

    Edit: Added some clarification above, also as a side note we have 2 children that I want to see if they can play with us some also.  Not sure yet how that will work out and if they will be interested or not (obviously they won't be allowed to play late on weeknights.)  Just have to see...

    Some of those names are familiar to me, I think. But it was so long ago.

    I also found the site to be inactive not that that is unexpected considering how early it was conceived. Don't know if anyone would recall any of my characters (Dhorin, Dhrama). I was in Eastern Keep(EK) the predecessor guild from which the US members broke off to form Echoes in Eternity(EiE) and my roomate / best friend was (Dalla) who was eventual RL/GM/Council of EiE. Haven't seen anyone from EiE on these forums and will be bringing a few friends made post EQ to this game once it is launched to either a formed guild or starting our own. Would love if the guild brings back old friends.

    So just a comment, but Chania still plays EQ apparently.  I remember EK.  I quit for a while during Kunark and came back full on during Velious.  I actually started on Veeshan, but moved to Rodcet shortly after it opened.  Early guilds I was in Arcane Legacy.  I then ended up leaving that due to some disagreements about how to handle camps (didn't ike the way they rolled over some people camping mask.)  Basically was in a bunch of early attempts at getting guilds formed as well (Harbingers of Storm for one - Tenser/Vykdrago/et al.)  About 10 of us founded DA (about 1/3 from HoS and the rest were from a guild which escapes me at the moment - Matteo was in the other guild if I remember right, drawing blanks - damn it's been a LONG time.)  I came back during Velious and played Thecklos more than Celegrom at that point.  My favorite expansion was probably PoP and most of what came after was kind of downhill.  Beckah and I quit playing something after Omens of war and never came back.  I still talk to Phad, Matteo, and Murgao (along with Beckah since I'm married to her.)  During OoW my semi perma group was me as Thecklos, Beckah, Phad, Sazzabi, Emmdano, and Tillien.  As for Eastern Keep members
