Of late we have been doing a great deal of raiding more than we used to, DPC used to be the more casual alternative to the other High End Guilds on the server but its pretty obvious that nowadays its no longer the case. As such when we introduced the NullDKP system it was ideal as we were only raiding a few days now and then and we had a much better flow of people on the table. Unfortunately its starting to creak badly at the seams and its not coping well with the increased amount of raids, loot etc.

As such we’re going to make a move to anewer auction based system away from the fixed prices. Also the way we earn DKP will change, Boss Kills will have fixed values instead of being dependant on loot and in addition people will earn DKP for time spent in the instances (that was one of the main failings of NullDKP, no rewards for the efforts spend on endless wipes on new encounters). More details can be found on the Guild Rules & Info page and I’ve also prepared a guide for the changeover process and what it will mean to the average guild member. In addition the new DKP Values list is now available which details the earning rates and new minimum bids. More details of the Bonus DKP program will follow later.

Chrommaggus added to the casualty list now as part of the continuing progress being made in BWL. It really has sped up dramatically in recent weeks, Razorgore and Vael who once were a huge problem are now on farm status and the only limitation nowadays is time! With the Xmas season we hadn’t managed to do a great deal of raiding so to return to BWL after New Year and get Chromaggus down so fast was superb, nice work all involved.

Also on farm status is Taerar, one of the 4 Emerald Nightmare Dragons, time to get that Nature Res gear up a bit for AQ when it opens! Speaking of which you can check out the servers progress here
