Starting September 10th, 2016, the Oathsworn Vigil will begin doing what is being dubbed as "the Pledge's Probationary Period" or "PPP" for short. When inducted, a Pledge will have approximately 30 days from their induction period to prove to the guild that they are an ideal match for the guild. A PPP can end early, with the agreement of ALL guild officials, assuming the Pledge has gone above and beyond the base level of expectations during their time in the guild. The PPP imposes several restrictions on new members that act as a fail-safe to prevent the guild from incurring losses in the form of resources (items, gold, etc.) These restrictions are the following:
- During the PPP, Pledges cannot acquire more than -1- piece of loot while Master Looter is in use, per week. However, keep in mind that any item that serves as a direct upgrade to the Pledge can be given to them, assuming no one else in the raiding team needs it.
- During the PPP, Pledges will not be given any pieces of loot while Personal Loot is in use. However, please keep in mind that any item that serves as a direct upgrade to the Pledge can be given to them, assuming no one else in the raiding team needs it.
- During the PPP, Pledges are still a subject of all of our guild rules, raiding rules and expectations.
- During the PPP, Pledges will not receive any form of resources or funding from the guild bank. Individuals are free to assist a Pledge at their own discretion.
Please keep in mind that any current member can be subjected to endure the PPP if deemed necessary. However, this will only occur under extreme circumstances. Furthermore, please understand that the conditions and details of the PPP are always a subject to change and must be adapted to at a moment's notice. If there are any questions, please contact ANY guild official for more information.
Disclaimer: This does not apply to any current pledges.
The Oathsworn Vigil was "officially" formed on the realm Moon Guard on October 11th, 2013 with its members originating from the guild known as Shattered Oath. A formal split was created with the intent to address the many concerns plaguing the community within Shattered Oath in regards to management and guild standards.
The guild was previously known as "Bad", which was managed by a number of people before it went inactive. It was later salvaged and renamed "The Oathsworn Vigil" to meet our needs on all levels. Like its ancestor guild before it (Bad), and its sister guild (Shattered Oath), The Oathsworn Vigil focuses on embracing all aspects of the game. With a larger emphasis on PvE content (such as raids, dungeons, etc) and Role-Play.
We organize and manage multiple raids several nights throughout the week as well as other events with Role-play nature. All activities provided by the guild are optional, giving our member base the power of choice. 10-man Raid Teams always have a core member base, expected to be prepared when it is a raid night. Back-ups are always welcomed to sign up in case they may be needed.
In Character, The Oathsworn Vigil was born when Ferathir Dawnbreaker was assign to the rank of Sergeant while in Shattered Oath. He revived his ancient group which was called "The Vigil" with a new member based composed of all manner of "Oathsworn" (standard rank in Shattered Oath), thus ultimately renaming the small company "The Oathsworn Vigil." The Oathsworn Vigil was later re-structured as its own guild & faction after it gained enough backing from like-minded individuals within Shattered Oath as to how to handle the threats Azeroth has to bear. While they are generally on common grounds, The Oathsworn Vigil focuses more on the "true" dangers that would otherwise wipe out the entirety of Azeroth, and not just petty racial wars.
Out of character, our guild is filled with a large selection of personalities that are inately kind and helpful, as well as skilled. We encourage everyone to be heard and thus welcome suggestions, self-made events and activities or anything of the sort from our member base. In here, you aren't just another number. And we aren't just saying that!
Our goal is simple. To provide a fun and TRULY casual environment from all fronts and create a memorable experience for you while you remain a part of the Vigil. Good company, skilled players and an overall friendly environment that'll make you want to get involved.
Here in the Oathsworn Vigil, you are a part of a family. And as such, you will not find "inner circles" or feel "out of the loop." You are one of us and we take care of our own.
We aim to become the very foundation of what it means to be a great guild. And we want YOU to be a part of it!
