Who Are We, and What Do We Do?
Summation is an Everquest raiding guild on the Ragefire TLP server that focuses on end-game content. We are a group of active players that consistently clears the highest tiers of raiding within the opening weeks of an expansion release. Our ranks contain both knowledgeable solo players and boxers that use a handful of their best characters to round out our raids. Our raid farming schedule is Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8PM - 11PM Eastern Time.
What Makes Us Unique?
We are dedicated to clearing the expansion as a unit. This sounds like a basic building block of success, but our guild takes this to the next level. Planning goes into each upcoming expansion to ensure that everyone knows what to do to be raid ready within a limited time, and have the content cleared as soon as possible for optimal gearing chances. Our attendance numbers are exceptionally high in comparison to other guild's rosters, and our attrition rate is extremely low.
Our DKP System is fair to the time you put into the current content. Our DKP system is attendance-based points accrual with most loot having a fixed price. DKP is reset at the beginning of major expansions and seeded based on the previous total attendance. This system best supports our objective in that:
- Your attendance matters and helps us to progress.
- You are encouraged to gear your active raiding characters, as unspent DKP doesn't roll over.
- Gear can't be disproportionately won with stockpiled DKP.
Alts are not required, but we accommodate them too! Several of our guild members are boxers to facilitate their own play. If you have alternate accounts or characters that you are capable of raiding with, you can set a Declared Alt (DA) so that it has a loot priority below mains, but above the other boxed alts in the guild (Any Alts, or AAs).
You don't have to devote every spare moment to us. Scheduled raids give our players the opportunity to strike a balance between the game and real life (or other games, work, etc.). You don't have to worry about an expedition timer ending on a day you're not available to raid, and players will have a better retention of event mechanics and their roles when they're not missing lockouts. We still gear Mains and DAs exceptionally well regardless of not squeezing in every last day, and additional off-night raiding is run with Non-DKP/RA loot rules based on interest and availability.
