Title: Order of the Burning Monk

We, Order of the Burning Monk (http://www.estiah.com/guild/381), are a new guild made of mostly new players and we have started openly recruiting. We accept pretty much everybody who is 20+, but since we want to be at least somewhat competitive, the applicant will have to go through our "training guild, which is Order of the Freezing Monk (http://www.estiah.com/guild/454). To avoid the training guild, one would have to be either 35+ with 2.5k+ rating or 40+ with reasonable health. We have our forums (http://duel.mygoo.org/estiah-f69/) and we are not afraid to use them, so ability to communicate and adapt is the key requirement to stay in our guild. Let the world burn!

A word from the leader:
More on-topic, we're pretty far along, as far as relatively new guilds go.  Both guilds have nearly 100 "buildings."  Order of the Freezing Monk has every charm through the first armory built.  Order of the Burning Monk has built an alchemy lab II, the +stat elixirs, and we're half done with the Armory II crafts. 

More importantly, our current players were hand picked because we're friendly & helpful.  Our estiah forums are active, and we've got lots of good posts on beating dungeons, general & class strategy, and other good information.  We've got plenty of excellent players, but we could always use more!

This isn't an application, given that my main is already in CLUB, but, out of curiosity:

Is that guild name from Duels?

Looks mighty familiar...  ;D

From duels it is not just the guild name, it is also the people and the forums.

@Quizy: Ooo, I see. :)

Nice to see some fellow Duels players here. :)
(I was always more of a Warstorm player though. Then again, that was before Challenge Games decided to stop supporting their games. :( ).

Boy, you're telling me, if there was ever a sinking ship, Challenge Games is it.  That's why so many of us are here now!

We've now got fairly complete guides to all the dungeons, quest lines, forges, treasure sites, leveling, informational tools, gold/HP/spirit farming, and more on our forums.  We have active forums with lots of discussions, and lots of new players getting help.  We're rated above 2000, and we're improving all the time.  We have many very sharp players who are great at helping others with strategy, and guiding newer players.  We have built all the food, potions, pets, and decent charms, and we've nearly finished construction on the last Vault & Armory.  

EDIT: We're still taking active players & alts, PM me to sign up! (http://www.estiah.com/character/41152)

We've got every high level charm and building done now and we've got more than a dozen open slots.  We're rising in the rankings, and well into the top 20 now, and improving all the time.

We've really slowed down our recruiting efforts, but you can still PM Lessigfan if you want an application!  We're still here, still active, somewhere around 10 in ranking and patiently waiting for Estiah II

New slogan for the holidays

I found this outside the Monk Cave after I got done making the holiday shirts.  My condolence to AH if it was a close friend.   On a somewhat related note, we are grilling steaks later if anyone wants to come by.

Well it looks like OOFM was the 2nd guild to hit 150 available member slots...which means we still have plenty of openings. 


PS, can we get the guild halls as a repeatable building at this point for ghp (or even no ghp, just something to build if needed).
Title: Re: Order of the Burning Monk
Post by: Medefe on 15:18:12 - 03/28/12
I'd say for no GHP, but add a small counter where everyone can see just how often any guild has finished a guild hall for no additional effect whatsoever.

Better to pump even if nothing happens than to risk something worse happening by not pumping.

sounds like someone's banking on the 150 limit being upped..........................

Due to a seemingly widespread lack of interest, we would love to find a guild or two that would want to join up with us.  The goal being to increase activity within the guild and to improve ourselves to make a better challenge to the guilds ranked above us.

For what it's worth, I still think that a grand merger would be feasible/beneficial. And it's not like we can't bypass the crap that has occurred last year ("competition lol", "guild branding lol", "different values/communities lol"). Hell, we have three low-level guilds (WAND/OOFM/HiT), two being slot-capped. Flocking up the remaining active players from the current top dogs would be easily achieved (while relocating the active lowbies, if needed/wanted, to the other training guilds). That would be as close as possible to starting up from scratch.

As you've witnessed yourselves, things are pretty dire. Five from the top seven guilds have less than ten active folks/players nowadays. AH has about a dozen, KD about two dozens. Pretty dire, indeed.

We can resume our slumber (http://forum.estiah.com/index.php?topic=6361.msg82082#msg82082), evidently, but I'm unable to see to what purpose would that (realistically) serve.
Title: Re: Order of the Burning Monk
Post by: Rdshepherd on 01:08:05 - 03/07/13
I think we have 1 active and 1-4 others who randomly check in.  It's sad to see the death of such a good game.
