The Road Goes Forever On -- 13/13M
This is always a weird bit during the expansion. We finished the tier in November of last year, so we're definitely deep into the farm at this point.
Something that I always enjoy during times like this is the time we get to optimize the guild. We had a similar period during Siege of Orgrimmar and I think that really helped us get those US 30 - 50 ranks once we hit BRF. We've been doing a lot of the same at this point. We've been stressing mechanics, still full clearing, making sure any problems are being fixed for Siege, finding the right officers for the next tier, and generally setting expectations. I'm pretty hopeful that this next tier will be a strong one for us. We have a pretty solid roster that's still improving thanks to Dax, our new recruitment officer.
Sales are another thing we've been dipping our toes in and out of. We've not made that much yet, but I expect to make a bit more soon, and hopefully push our guildbanks into the right position long before the expansion drops. We have a flat 20% comission for anyone who finds sales for us, so even if you're just a friend rank in the guild, feel free to contact me (@ Daemios#1636) with a potential buyer. I made 500k in 2 weeks just off sales like this. It's a good way to get a TCG mount or two!
Finally, I've have been working on a website that I'm pretty excited about. It's features range from loot sign-ups, roster optimizations, automated player analysis, a group-builder and more. It's completely self-contained and automated, interfaces directly with the WoW API to pull relevant data, and builds it's library of items to select from automatically. I get a little gushy talking about it, but we'll have more information soon, and once I beta test it in the guild, I'll be approached a few others to get their own feedback on it.
