Started by a core of RL friends, Ring of Fire has established itself on the EU-Alonsus realm and grown quickly. At Level 25, we are a social, casual and progressive raiding and levelling guild with the emphasis on casual. Although the majority of our membership are from the UK, we are an international-friendly guild with members from all over the world among our core players.
There is usually plenty going on in a typical week with plenty of LFR groups, heroics, scenarios and players grouping for daily quests. Most of us are also levelling or gearing alts and our core players are about to restart 10-man progression raiding.
For our Members we provide a 30 user Mumble VoIP server, a guild tabard, 6 bank tabs, a repairs service and a guild shop with below-market prices for gear, gems, mats and enchants. We have players with all professions so you will have access to high-end and "to help you level" craftables. We do guild runs for gear, rep, achievements, mounts, levelling/boosting, practice and of course just for fun too.

See you in Azeroth!
Salabum AKA Scott - Guild Master
Pipah, Mailee & Madonnarhoea AKA Jules, Mark and Steve - The Officers
Congratulations to Jon and Emilia AKA Treemover and Nyhmina on their promotions to the Champion rank.
Leadership created the Champion rank to reward players who exemplify what we think of as the spirit of this guild. You are considered class leaders and model Ring of Fire guildies in your playing skill and attitudes to others.
You get increased access to guild repairs and the guild bank, along with the knowledge that your guild appreciate you and your efforts.
Well deserved guys!
In what was possibly the slickest, smoothest RoF run I've been a part of in a long time, we got our gamefaces on quickly and made short work of The Stone Guard and Feng the Accursed with no wipes at all. In true RoF style we then chipped away at Gara'jal the Spiritbinder killing him on the 4th attempt. Thanks to Jon for clear, calm tactical callouts in this fight. We then had a look at The Spirit Kings encounter, and despite losing players to the boss's opening swing, we did well and almost had him on the 4th phase. Unfortunately we ran out of time and had to call a halt to proceedings; however since we now have the measure of this fight I can feel the next progression kill inching closer. Nice work guys, the best in a while

Next week's run will be posted here and in the guild calendar so watch this space!
Please be advised that the RoF Guild Group on Facebook is for guildies to communicate, share and organise activities relating to the Guild. It is NOT a place for politics, religion, jokes (offensive or otherwise), bitching, moaning etc. Any posts found to violate this policy will be removed. Let's keep this nice for everyone please!
I would also like to draw people's attention to our Guild Rules & Policies, in the "Docs" section of this group. In here you will not only find the rules, but a clear statement on what we are about as a guild. As we have a number of new players among our ranks I shall be encouraging people to sign up here, read and take note!
Leadership would like to congratulate Emilia AKA Emm for earning the legendary item [Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest] in what was possibly the most epic Ring of Fire raid ever.
It was a great night for Em and for the Guild as the whole of Stormwind was made aware of the acquisition. A scary few moments ensued as the quest line didn't complete properly until we realised that Em was still in the raid group and therefore unable to collect the staff because it was a quest item. So, having left the raid group, the whole Stormwind role play began again! Lots of players congratulated us in Trade, which temporarily became the new Guild Chat as Jane announced "brb loo" to the channel... This was followed by what can only be described as a drunken floozyfest as we celebrated in true WoW style by putting on our best dancing trousers and getting gazebo'd on top of a battlement in Cathedral Square.
Seriously well done to Emm and all who helped tonight, and to those who helped in some of the many preceding raids leading up to this event.
Jon AKA Treemover as Tank
Jules AKA Pipah and Jane AKA Emmajane as Healers
Steve AKA Madonnarhoea, Mark AKA Mailee, Gary AKA Nezakeneber, Anthony AKA Hipshot, Aid AKA Castortroy and Emm AKA Nyhmina as DPS
It was a good, quick start to tonight's raid with everyone being on time and ready to raid, cheers guys We got going and scored an amazingly fast first kill of the Stone Guard despite a dead Salabum during the encounter. Some quick BR usage meant we weren't even put off our stride and the kill came quickly thereafter. Not quite farm status yet but a slick, quick kill nonetheless. Feng the Accursed was a bit more tricky however. We quickly got the measure of phases 1 and 2, but phase 3 proved a little slippery to nail at first. A few wipes and a quick break later, we got the kill and the loot came a-tumbling. A progression kill scored, yay
For the loot we have some drops for guildies:
Mark won [Sixteen-Fanged Crown] on an offspec roll for his Shaman;
Michelle scored [Arrow Breaking Windcloak] for her Hunter;
Pete picked up [Feng's Ring of Dreams] for his Druid.
We're planning a continuation of this raid before the reset. Date & time TBC as I need to catch up with Scott for his availability to join. Calendar invites will be pending so please check and accept as soon as you're able to. We're planning on a fresh run next WEDS or THURS and will prioritise those players that missed out this time around Tony and Jane

RoF opened their account in Mogu'shan Vaults scoring a progression kill on the Stone Guard encounter. We got out gamefaces on quickly with only 4 warm-up wipes beforehand. Well done guys, so pleased with this Jules finally won something from a raid encounter picking up [Jade Dust Leggings] for her Priest, and Tony scooped [Stonefang Chestguard] for his Hunter. Paul also picked up [Plans: Gauntlets of Battle Command] for his Blacksmith.
I am probably going to run the next one on Weds. I will be rotating players to ensure those that missed out today will get in next time, i.e. Em, Mally, Michelle and Zak. Please note that Zak will be going off around 9.30 so we can rotate another player in to replace him.
Please check your calendars for invites and respond ASAP. I will be looking for someone to fill Zak's spot from 9.30pm as melee DPS and to include Mally, Michelle, Zak and Em. Please can you four let me know you are OK to start from 7pm UK time on Weds? Cheers.

Progression Raiding in RoF - The Update
OK guys here's the situation. We have almost a full team which currently looks like this:
The Main Crew:
Steve on Madonnarhoea (Death Knight) - Tank with melee DPS offspec
Scott on Salabum (Druid) - Tank
Jules on Pipah (Priest) - Healer with ranged DPS offspec

Stephen on Macree (Death Knight) - Melee DPS
Where we have more players than spaces we will endeavor to rotate the spaces amongst "The Rest" and "The Occasionals & Casuals" to ensure we all get to raid and in the interests of group viability.
I need everyone on this list to confirm their interest and any days they CANNOT raid please. From your responses we will work out the raiding day(s) and go from there. Anyone who I have missed off who may be interested in joining "The Rest" or "The Occasionals & Casuals" please add yourself to this thread with your comments.
Cheers one and all!
Steve, your tank and raid rigger
Just to let everyone know - we've got 9/10 spaces now filled for what will become our progression raid team for this EP, and once we are all geared we will hit the 10-man content rotating the final space among those who are able, geared and willing to join us.
Interested in the last DPS space? Ideally you will be a melee DPS class, preferably with a useable offspec. If nobody can be found to fill this role we will rotate in players who may have less availability than once per week to raid. Speak to me or any of the officers team on this thread, via PM or in game.
I will be making myself available in the coming days for guild 5-mans to help our players gear up and ready ourselves for raiding. Don't forget we also have our weekly LFR run on Wednesday following the reset.
Steve AKA Madonnarhoea, your raid rigger and (one of) your raid tank(s).
