We are recruiting active players, enthusiastic about PvE content in ESO, to grow towards the Endgame (progressive veteran Trials, currently running 2 Cores, 2 more being planned) through what we call "Midgame" content (veteran DLC Dungeons & vArenas). To achieve our goal, we organize events everyday: 12-man content at 8:30pm CET (German time). We do Midgame content in a daily basis.
Who can join?
- We accept CP 300+ players, for long-term camaraderie. Candidates need to be able to attend our events at least 3 times a week (Mid-/End-game). Raids start at 8:15pm CET (events last 2-2.5 hrs max)...
- We only are looking forward to players who can play the game 4-5 evenings a week in general, with future Endgame prospect in mind... No logging in from raid to raid. We believe "you learn the game by playing it!".
What We Provide?
- Constant training and growth to help you become a killing machine (or a healing lifespring) as we progress together...
- Fun environment to do PvE - absolutely zero elitism, patience and tolerance towards new/unskilled players and such...
- Discord - where we socialize, which is our primary guild chat...
- Premium Website - where we organize our events, socialize further. Featuring event reviews written by our members. Colorful Event gallery...
- Guild Housing - where you can find Crafting Stations, Transmutation Station, Mundus Stones and ever growing cool decoration for your seeing pleasure...
- Youtube Channel - where we stream many events we do as a guild...
- Custom Planner - where we plan to organize even better (coming very soon!)
Who Shouldn't Join?
- Whoever isn't sure about their availability and playtime. We really don't want to chase after people and remind them to sign up for events. So if unsure, please don't waste our time!!!
- Whoever isn't a team-player, always putting his/her own gains before guild goals. Someone who thinks of searching for another guild instead of solutions, whenever his guild/team experiences problems.

26 pointsFollowing are our Raid Core Guidelines, and by joining our Raid Core, a member accepts these rules. Concepts Hierarchical Core System is how our Raid Cores work: generally Core-1 being our flagship Core, comprised of dedicated raiders with the best performance and attendance metrics; and the remaining Cores. E.g. when we have 3 Cores, Core-3 will be our lowest rank Core, which will host our newly recruited raiders, to be tested. In time, well-performing raiders with good attendance will be promoted to Core-2. And performing even better, they will become top candidates to join Core-1, whenever suitable spot opens. The same way, a raider under-performing in Core-1 will be demoted in Core-2. If this pattern of decline continues, demotion into Core-3 will happen, eventually ending with possible removal from Cores altogether. Character-based Clearance: Core-1 membership/clearance is character-based, meaning only characters approved for this Core can join it's raids. No alts allowed. A Core-1 raider who is proficient in one role, can get a new character of the same role cleared for the Core (i.e. a Core-1 DD, can get a new DD alt cleared for this Core). But having a new role alt will require that alt being tested in Core-3, and subsequently promoted as if it's a fresh player. E.g. Core-1 DD can't get a Tank toon cleared for Core-1 participation. That Tank alt needs to go through "Core-3 to Core-2 to Core-1" testing process. Exceptions can be made to this rule, if a Guidance Officer/Raid Leader deems fit. Prior To Raids Attendance: Core membership requires 3-day-a-week raiding on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 8:30pm to 11pm, CE(S)T. For emergencies in life, a raider can miss up to 2 (two) raids in a monthly basis. More than that, the raider in question might get replaced/removed from Core without notice. Raider needs to be online, out of groups, with consumables ready, 15 minutes prior the raid - by 8:15pm CE(S)T. Raids shouldn't last past 11pm, and if they do, raider is allowed to leave at his/her own discretion. Otherwise, raider cannot leave the raid before time. If you think you can't attend certain event - whether it's due to emergency or not - please notify your Raid Leader at least 1 hour prior the event, stating the situation. Backups (also known as sitouts) are to be online and available to a summon during the whole raid event. They can engage in any content they want, but at the same time, they need to be summonable in a minute's notice, if a need for them arises. Backup not being online and available will be considered as absent for that day. Requirements: Raiders need to have all requirements met, including add-on installation (RaidNotifier Updated & Combat Metrics being mandatory), Discord installation and acceptance criteria (gear, stats etc). Raiders can take proper potions and food for their builds from Guild Bank for free (guild raids only) prior the raid. If none exists there, they should get them crafted (e.g. by asking in guild for crafting). Additionally, reading guides for progression bosses, prior to the raid hour is a strong recommendation (but not required!). Lacking the MUST-HAVE criteria, a player might be replaced immediately. Be In Shape! Raiders can't join raids in heavily intoxicated (drunken, high or similar) state, as it damages team progression. If this becomes the case, raid leader reserves the right to remove such raider from raid. Raid-Eligible Characters Only! In addition to above note (see: Character-based Clearance), Core members can only bring their raid-eligible characters, which have been inspected and cleared for Endgame, to the Core! No other alts are allowed to progression raids. In Raid Leaders: Raiders must listen to directives of a Raid Leader (there always will be only one Raid Leader only, whereas guild overall may have more than one) and be constructive with their comments. Being overly offensive and intolerant will not be tolerated! Not listening to commands, disregarding them, disagreeing with them in a destructive manner during events will not be tolerated either: if you have something to add, something to "fix", please do that with courtesy - use suitable moments in between pulls. If Raid Leader disagrees, keep it to after the event! Rage Quitting Strictly Forbidden! Raiders rage-quitting the raid, will be removed from our Raid Core immediately without further notification. Be Vigil! Raiders need to be attentive and alert during raid time: newbie behavior such as continuous ninja pulling (at all times), randomly idling and distracting others during difficult content are not the features we seek in potential raiders. In such cases, Raid Leader reserves the right to replace offending raiders. Voice-over-IP Etiquette: Raiders are not to dominate the voice server (Discord), especially giving orders around, and/or trying to change the flow of raid tactics unless assigned to do so. If raiders have something to add or suggest regarding tactics, they are welcome to share it at a suitable moment when it's being explained, or while resurrecting and getting ready for a new pull. Additionally, bashing raiders for failures is strictly forbidden. If you feel that it is keeping us from progress, explain them what and how they could do better in private chat, nicely.
2 pointsChristmas is here... In case you are celebrating it, we wish you Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones! If not, we wish you Happy Holidays! Either way, as the leadership of our guild, we wish you prosperity, happiness, love and peace in coming year of 2019. If you are away from home during the holidays, have a safe journey and see you when you are back in-game! If you are spending them at home, we wish you wonderful time with your beloved! We've come long way, since I revived this guild back in May of 2017. Long and quite a turbulent way! Recruited hundreds to achieve what we have today: a warm, nice, family-like corner in ESO, to play and have fun together. And I dare to say we have been quite successful! Two Cores holding our banners high and proud, kicking further and farther into the darkest corners of Tamriel - making us proud! For this, and other achievements we've gained in past 18 months, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Without you, none of these would be possible! Without your efforts, Lodge wouldn't be here today! Also using this opportunity, I'd like also to thank our dear Officer board, for the tremendous job they have done: every single one of you - including @Cortair and @mooslacker with whom this journey we started, Gavin and Coffee, with whom it continued; and those who are still with us and have done extraordinary things this year - mainly our dear friend @Jaynoel, and his Guidance team, @Kydum and @Kirikub, and our kick-ass raid leaders, who joined us to lend a hand with our Core raiding: @Maxime and @david0001. Thank you ALL! Yours faithfully -- Gelmir P.S.: Postcard by @Maxime

-1 pointsHello ladies and gentlemen, Time warrants yet another Guild Report, so here we go... PvE: Cores, Changes in Them & Future As you know, last weekend we had to introduce some changes to the structure of our Raid Cores. For 3-4 months our existing 2 Cores have raided, and eventually we hit a wall of stagnation - we couldn't advance further due to certain limitations. After talking to our Raid Leaders, Guidance guys, it was decided that we switch to a progressive, hierarchically structured Core system, where competition, constant improvements and performance will decide the Core a raider is in. Of course these changes weren't welcomed warmly by some of our members, who decided to leave us. But they had to be done, alas! After restructuring, now we have 2 relatively better organized Cores. Core-1, being our flagship team, has the best this guild has to offer. Core-2, hopefully one day catches up with Core-1, is our second level Core. Both Cores thankfully are Veteran Cloudrest grade Cores, currently progressing in that content. Both hopefully soon enough will conquer that place! But despite all this, I have coupla relatively negative news for us: Firstly, as you noticed several members decided to leave us. Due to these losses (about 7-8 members), we have to cancel our Core-3 initiative for the time being. We just don't have enough manpower to keep that Core going. We have to enlist few of its members into Core-2, after which we will have only handful of players who can't really sustain Core-3 at this point. But of course we will be continuously recruiting, training and clearing new active PvEers into the guild. I suspect in a month or two, Core-3 initiative will be kickstarted again. I know this news will hurt some Core-3 members - I am sorry for that - but please rest assured we will keep working on our PvE extensively throughout 2019. Secondly, our dear friend @Jaynoel has to temporarily pause on raiding due to his studies (namely, his laboratory sessions at university, due to which he won't be able to come online until past 9pm CET). Because of this, another esteemed veteran of our community @Zaza102 decided to help us in this dire moment, by leading Core-2. He is well versed himself, so please welcome him as a Raid Leader and as a new officer to the guild! With these news in mind, we will be shifting some raiders around: @Oli-Kun as a MultiRole is being moved to Core-1, @Zaza102 as a Raid Leader, and a MultiRole is moving to Core-2 temporarily, @sharkium and @F1NEX as DDs being moved to Core-1, @Vizilon as a Healer is being moved to Core-2, @Centerblarre, @Klots, @Zireael-Swallow as DDs are being moved to Core-2, @Xenowarrior92 as a Tank is being moved to Core-2. PvE: Midgame & Its Future We realize Midgame suffered lately, as never before, due to our focus into Cores. I plan to fix this problem. We will be extensively recruiting for Midgame tier and get our numbers replenished, at the same time making sure our sustainable Endgame stays that way (i.e. sustainable). PvP Initiative As you noticed, as the new year arrived, we also started to work on our PvP project. As a midterm plan, with small steps, we will start with Battlegrounds, attempting to form our BG Squads. Currently, @Kydum is measuring the pulse of the guild in order to determine who, from the current roster, are interested in PvP, specifically in training as a PvP player and being part of our BG Squads. Please contact him if you guys are interested. With Cyrodiil campaigns possibly on horizon, as a long-term plan, let's develop our PvP branch as well. Once PvP kickstarts in full force, we will consider it as an eligible content in the guild, towards our 3-day-a-week attendance as well. Other Topics Other than these, we decided to grant 5-6 plus month old members who generally have cleared all Midgame content a Rector rank, technically exempting them from 3-day-a-week event participation. One reason for this to be introduced is us trying to build a long-lasting gaming community. Another is basically being fair and loyal to our old members who also have cleared almost all Midgame content. That's it folks! Thanks for reading, see you ingame! -- Gelmir
