PvE Raid Core: Requirements to Join

Recommended Posts

Dear potential Raid Core Recruit!

Please be advised that, although Lodge is a casual guild in general sense, when it comes to endgame content, we are rather semi-hardcore. With that in mind, the following are criteria for you to join to our Raid Core teams...



Kind Note: Lodge's PvE Raid Core is freshly forming. This means we will have progression as a group, i.e. a bit of wiping, or even nights without failed trial completions and so on, so forth. Before joining, please kindly bare this in mind!


General Requirements

Requirements stated in our Raid Core Guidelines:

  • 3-day-a-week raiding (currently those days are Tue, Wed and Thu - but these can change) commitment no matter what! Very rare cases of family emergencies or personal real-life issues are excluded, though those shouldn't become regular things.
  • 2.5 - 3 hours a day raiding session commitment.


Level Required

To join our Raid Core, at the very least you have to be Champion Rank 160 or above, to attend Normal mode trials. To attend Veteran mode trials, minimum CP 300 is required.


Roles Needed

As we start with vTrials, we will need a single role from you. But in a long run, you'll need to have 1 character ready, spec'ed and mastered for raids. Try to be expert in one class and don't just play other classes because it's OP.


Gear In General

You will need to have recommended sets for your role farmed from dungeons, the rest - crafted. For trials, all gear needs to be in epic quality. If you don't have sets farmed, please join related farming events in our Calendar. We will try to organize farming sessions and get you geared as soon as possible. Additionally, although not mandatory at initial stages, for vTrials having legendary quality weapons would increase your performance a lot, thus strongly recommended.

All armor pieces should have Divines trait for damage dealers and healers, Sturdy trait for tanks. Jewellery should have Robust (for Stamina) or Arcane (for Magicka), with Damage enchants.


Regarding Vampires

Vampires are only allowed in trials where there is no Fire Damage. If there is a chance of Fire Damage, you need to be at Vampiric stage 1 (satiated, with no Fire vulnerability).


Alchemy: Medicinal Use

We strongly recommend all our Raiders to have mastered Medicinal Use passive in Alchemy skill line.


Role-specific Stat Requirements

  • Healers: You need to have both Healing and Supporting capabilities and good reaction time to heal/damage spikes.
  • Damage Dealers: Minimum 30k+ non-stop ST DPS on a robust training skeleton without raid buffs.

    As for the AOE spec: if you follow a build from one of the guides on the net, you should have adequate AOE capability. Most bosses are ST DPS; adds can be dealt with either ST DPS or AOE used for ST DPS. Minimum 17k HP, buffed, is required.

    If you are not able to do enough damage, then we can help you improve.
  • Tanks - Minimum 40k+ HP, buffed for Main Tanks. Slightly lower (35k+ HP) for Off-Tanks. Your main role is to endure damage and secondary as Support via passives and Aggressive Horn ultimate. We recommend spending points slightly more on Stamina, rather than Health, as it is easy to enchant armor with HP glyphs, but Stamina regeneration can't be achieved that way.Remember as tank and healer your job is not just to keep the group alive but to be alive and buff the group and debuff the boss.


Role-specific Gear Requirements/Recommendations


Once you have above pre-requisites met, please do the following to join the Raid Core:

  • Read Raid Core Guidelines first, before continuing with next steps. If you don't like rules set there, you shouldn't join our Raid Core.
  • In The FIELD HQ forum, please create a topic, stating your intention to join our PvE Raid Core. Please state all your currently available roles/classes which are eligible to join our Core. And also state your experience with vTrials in ESO. We need this information to have an idea about your capabilities in general. Last but not least, please provide some screenshots (or videos) with DPS parses you have performed on Robust Skeleton.
  • When (and only) accepted, you will be invited to the private The PvE Raid Core Club on our forums. Please accept that invitation when you receive it. Then you will be scheduled for inspection by our Raid Leaders in-game to double-check your rotations/setup and invited to test-vTrial runs with us.

If you don't meet requirements above, don't fret! Talk to our Raid Leaders (@Knight30 and @Nefaras) and get some tips from them regarding your class and role. Train regularly, get there, and come back here!

Good luck, Initiate!
