On our guild forum, we have a variety of different boards. Guild chatter for general posts, Class Discussions for all things class-related, New Member Applications for, well, new member applications. I'm sure your guild forum, if you have one, is similar.
We also have a board for Guild Events. We post raid rosters here, and any other events that are going on. For months, this is what this forum has looked like:
ICC25 [insert date here]
Over and over again. For months!
So I've been trying to come up with a fun guild event. Something that doesn't have to do with raiding. Raiding is great and all, but sometimes you just want to have something that is completely different, and that includes more members than just raiding mains.
Here are my ideas:
1. Guild PvP in Dire Maul or Gurubashi Arena. It's weird when you walk in there and everyone's nameplate turns red. Wtf, why is my raid leader mauling me in the face? GAAAH! ./tree cower
We've done this in two different ways, from what I remember. One way is to make a toon, level it to 10, and go at it. We've done 2v2 teams, and free-for-alls (hint: roll a druid and shadowmeld until everyone else is dead. Another hint: this usually doesn't work). The second way is to bring your level 80s and have it out that way.
Additional awesomeness: If the fight gets too long and the people on the sidelines get bored, everyone is entitled to help the match along by aoeing the area. This usually brings the fight to an quick and deadly end. ^^
2. A 25 man level one Hogger raid. My co-healer Pallymar brought this idea to the table, which I know is old, but it was the first time I had ever heard of it (!). I think this would be hiLARious. Between all classes we'd have about 10 spells/abilities total. I feel like he'd just one-shot everyone. The other problem is that level 1 characters can't form raids anymore (booooo). Which makes me wonder, could a level 80 form a raid and invite level 1s?
3. An obligatory naked gnome race. What is it usually, run from Ironforge to Stormwind, right? As naked and as fast as possible. Winner gets my undying respect.
Any other fun things you've done with your guild? I'm looking for ideas!
