Ascension is a mature, progression-focused community of gamers based in Lotro's Arkenstone server. Although we are a relatively new kin, our membership includes many experienced and accomplished players with a diverse range of MMO experience - we continue to play together because we all share a kindred passion for gaming and we're always looking for new players to join our winning team.
While our primary focus is on end-game progression, we do not limit our activities solely to PvE raiding, but instead strive to accommodate a variety of play-styles commensurate with the interests and values of our members.
What you can expect from Ascension:
A friendly and diverse group of players who collaborate to analyze and improve our play while still enjoying the game.
A core group of raiders with a mindset of PvE progression and content mastery.
A raid council whose purpose is to evaluate and provide advice to our raiders to ensure a positive raiding experience.
PvP veterans willing to group and coordinate efforts towards success in a competitive environment.
A Teamspeak server and Guildlaunch website to keep you informed of all kinship news.
Access to easy grouping and casual conversation.
For players who wish to play with Ascension but wish to remain in another kinship, we offer Ally Status, which grants the following benefits:
1) Access to our website and forums
2) Automatic qualification for Ascension core raids and optional application to challenge raids
3) Credentials for our private raiding channel and Teamspeak server.
Ascension's ideal member:
Is raid aware, capable of demonstrating a high degree of proficiency on their primary class, and has the ability to adapt to whatever challenging situations may arise.
Is open to accepting and delivering constructive feedback at a mature, professional level.
Understands the importance of keeping real life drama separate from their in-game experience.
Takes pride in the kinship and is willing to do whatever they can to propel us to even greater heights.
You must contact an Officer/Member and obtain a recommendation from them before applying for member or ally status. This player must be able to speak to the other officers on your behalf.
You must have Teamspeak installed and working for instances and raids. You are not required to speak, but you must be willing to listen!
You must be active and able to represent the kin in a positive fashion.
