We’re a helpful, friendly guild which welcomes members of all experience levels.
We have several different ways that members who are new to some or all
areas of gaming can learn the ropes and enhance their experience if they
wish to do so. These include but are not limited to: general guild
chat, asking a veteran player one-on-one, reading the guides posted on
the forums, and the mentoring program.
The mentoring program is completely optional for both mentors and people
who would like to be mentored. There is no set length of time for which
a mentor/mentee relationship will last; either party can end the
pairing at any point for any reason.
The role of mentor and mentee is that of teacher and student. At the
same time, both are peers, and both have the opportunity to teach and
learn from each other on various matters. The specifics of the
mentor/mentee relationship will be decided by the mentor and mentee. In
other words, when you work with each other, how often, how long, via
what format, what information is covered, how you cover it, etc. is
completely up to the pair. This allows for the utmost flexibility and
Mentors and mentees could quest together, talk in Vent, chat in-game or
via private chat on our site; mentors could perform in-game
demonstrations, give their mentee assignments, watch as their mentee
performs something in-game…there are many possibilities.
The only requirement for mentors and mentees is one that needs not be
stated: that both the mentor and the mentee adhere to the guild values
and policies. Treat each other with kindness, respect, and
consideration. If for some reason the pairing doesn’t work out, follow
the conflict resolution policy or contact the guild leader or a council
Volunteer mentors will be listed in the first post of the stickied mentoring thread in Lyceum of Trials.
If a mentor is paired with someone, the fact that they’re paired will be indicated next to their name.
If you’d like to volunteer to be a mentor:
Volunteer by letting the guild leader or a council member know,
preferably in written format somewhere, such as a PM on the forums, in
an in-game mail, or in a response to the stickied mentoring thread in
the Lyceum of Trials in the forums.
When you volunteer, please provide your approximate anticipated play
times. Of course, you won’t be required to be on at those times; it just
provides a general idea of availability to facilitate pairing people
with compatible schedules.
If you’d like to include a brief list of your areas of specialty when
you volunteer, that list will be included next to your name, but
providing such a list is not required.
If you’d like to be a mentee:
Send a PM or an in-game mail to the guild leader or a council member.
List your approximate anticipated play times and any special areas in
which you’d like to be mentored, if applicable.
The guild leader, council members, class leaders, mentors, and other
veteran players are knowledgeable and willing to help, regardless of
whether you’re being mentored or not. Whenever asking a question,
whether it’s in guild chat, asking a veteran player one-on-one, asking
your mentor, etc., please keep in mind that there are times when people
might be deeply involved in an activity and might not see your question
or might not be able to respond to you. If that happens, please rest
assured that no one is ignoring you. Either ask your question to someone
else or ask later.
