Yep…owing to a nice problem at the host’s side of things the databases for the DKP tables were corrupted and are unable to be restored which is nice and handy as you can imagine! As such I’m in the process of rebuilding as much as I can manually but unfortunately most of the item history etc is basically gone and cant be restored! Rather annoying! 😐

We will however be able to rebuild the DKP values that people had on the 40man (now called primary) table due to the fact we use getDKP which stores a local copy of the amounts people have etc. Unfortunately we dont have an up to date version of the 20man table so the decision about what to do regarding this is still on the drawing boards at the moment but we will probably take the opportunity to address some of the shortfalls of the secondary table.

With the new adventures and challenges in Naxx the guild bank DPCbonus is once again in use. This time to make it easier to handle and more reliable when it comes to actually getting the bDKP (Skredd, I hope I sorted all now…better late than never! 😉 there will be a list which will stay the same, same values from week to week and any change to it should only be when we add more items you can get reward for donating.

I know some of you feel it is “wrong” to get bDKP when you just want to contribute to the guild and give free enchants when possible but really you should all take this opportunity. This way it also helps the Officers to keep track of who gets what in way of enchants, BoE craft items etc and we can plan the guilds progress from all this. So please see this as a good opportunity to get a reward when you donate and help us make progress in the new encounters ahead. We really do need the guild banks and are happy to give you the bDKP for anything you can do.

Don’t forget that you can request enchanting materials too from the Guild Bank. As always all requests through the Guild Bank Forum.

The old guild banks for herbs, potions etc are ofc still open and happily taking donations but only the things on the bDKP list will get you bDKP and we have also introduced a new bank character to store general enchanting materials and the Tier 3 Mats such as Mooncloth etc.

Details on bDKP rewards can be found here.

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.
