For the completion of current content and in preparation for the upcoming expansion 'Riders of Rohan' as well as the forthcoming raid due in the months after Rohan, we are once again looking for mature, active, raid hungry players. Your in-game experience isn't necessarily of the most important value to us, it's your devotion to learning and the will to overcome the most difficult encounters which Turbine have created for us.

What we expect:
Being a raiding kinship that primarily focuses on the most difficult content Lotro has to offer, while we do not require you to have experience in Tier 2 content to join (although it is a big plus), we do however expect you to have a good understanding of your class with the appropriate virtues and legendary items as well as being at the level cap. Having a raid-ready alt is also a big plus to your application, as it allows for additional flexibility in raids.
Being a member of the kinship itself is not necessarily required to raid with us - as we understand there are people in older kinships with friends in-game they would rather not leave behind. The option to raid with us yet being remaining in your current current kin is available, we have an in-game user channel available to keep in touch with those outside of kin whom raid with us, we currently have numerous players from other kinships raid with us on a regular basis. If this is something you have in mind please speak to an officer to discuss before you apply.
Our main raid days are Thursday, Friday, Sunday and either Monday or Tuesday with an occasional raid on Wednesdays depending on that weeks progress, all raid times are from 19:00 to 22:00 GMT. Although obviously we do not expect you to attend all raids in a week, ideally at least 2 per week is required of you, real life permitting.
For loot rules we currently use the DKP system (aka Dragon Kill Points), points are awarded for each boss kill and members are then able to spend those points on the armor, jewellery & symbols etc that drop in the raid. Partial points are also awarded for progression on bosses we have not yet beaten to encourage further advancement in the raid. Priority is also given for mains over alts (except in a circumstance in which that player is more regularly required to raid on an alt over his main, depending on the set-up).
Even if we are not currently recruiting your specific class at this moment in time, if you feel you have an exceptional application please feel free to apply regardless.
