Preying Mantis is an end-game, goal oriented kinship. Our mission simple: kill mobs, and take their stuff. Our success is directly related to our group cohesiveness and coordination while raiding and running instances. We consider ourselves very dedicated to the “end game” of LotRO. Our track record should hopefully speak for itself as we have been among the first to kill: Mordorith, Thorog, The Watcher v2 & v3, The Mistress, and the Lt. of Dol Guldur. While we’ve also achieved a few other noteworthy kills such as the only US Guild to 6 Man the Watcher (Pre SoM), and we we’re the first guild worldwide to down Blind One Hardmode.
Currently we have an incredibly strong core of players, and we're looking to add a few more skilled players to rounds out our Kinship. Below there is a recruitment needs board, which is more of a guideline for what we would prefer, however recruitment will never fully close. We always believe that when the right players come along, we're going to find room for them. If you're looking to raid at a high level, this is the place to be.
Preying Mantis uses a Zero Sum DKP system. Our system isn't a perfect zero, but we try to keep it as close as we can. If you have no idea what a zero sum system is, click here to read all about it. If you still have questions, feel free to contact an officer or myself.
What We Raid:
Official Kinship Raids will only take place at level cap. We do run older raids and instances, just not during our raid times.
Rune Keeper: Open
How to Apply:
Applying is easy; all you have to do is go to our website and register an account if you don't already have one. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to fill out our application. From there, we will contact you and set up a few dates to run a few things with you to gauge play style, skill, and how well you fit in with our Kinship.
If you’re still wondering what may be different about Preying Mantis from all of the other End Game Kinships on Elendilmir, that’s something you’re going to have to come and find out yourself.
Any addition questions can be directed to myself through these forums, Preying Mantis' website, or ingame via Tells or Mail.
