Who we are:
Edge was formed in 2006 between friends who desired to build a home that was based on a driven team environment with a positive atmosphere. In Edge, we are a community. More importantly, we are a team. We strive to defeat the hardest challenges this game has to offer without the drama and stress that is becoming all too common in internet gaming. Those who join our ranks quickly discover a mature and friendly home that pushes the envelope when it comes to solving problems and conquering content on a light four night raid schedule.
Should you choose to pursue Edge and stand amongst our ranks, you can count on being a part of a long standing community of people who share your passion for raiding and will go the distance with you to achieve the heights of success. We are unlikely to be your first guild, but if you share our passion and conviction we will certainly be your last. Our Progression and Achievements:

Edge is organized and directed by an officer council with no official GM. Officers take on the responsibilities of making sure raids are handled as efficiently as possible and the guild remains a friendly and stable place. Officers help lead the discussion in boss strategies, deciding gear distribution, and deciding guild goals and direction. If you ever have any questions, issues, or ideas, please don’t hesitate to talk to one of us.
The council has been has been comprised of Crosslayne, Destrius, Maple, Wazuka, Battledoc, Meloree, Komhaz, Kohler/Imabaddie.Skill and Motivation:
Being a part of Edge means you have the drive to be on the bleeding edge of progression on Garona and you are going to play your class to its maximum capabilities. We expect you to know your class inside and out, be informed of boss strategies, and excel when in action. If you come to raids unprepared and playing poorly, you are not living up to our expectations. Know your class, know the fights, and be prepared to be awesome when you come to our raids.Conduct:
Edge has zero tolerance for drama and we pride ourselves on being a guild that is drama free. We expect those apping with us and those that become a part of the team to treat fellow guild members and others with a healthy level of respect. Everyone who wears our tag represents our guild as a whole, so we expect members to treat those outside the guild with some level of respect and tolerance as well. We have enjoyed a good reputation among our peers on Garona and that is something we would like to continue. Loot Distribution:
Edge uses a loot council system decided by officers for the distribution of our loot. Our intent in end-game raiding is to progress as quickly and efficiently as possible in the time we have each week and loot is distributed upon factors including raid benefit, attendance, performance, and player benefit. We try to involve each member in the loot council system by having “loot lists” where each member finds their best in slot and major upgrades and rank them in terms using the available spreadsheets and models. We take the time to read the math and theorycraft behind these to make the most informed decisions as possible and it is our hope you invest the time to take part in the system by making one.
You shouldn’t be in this solely for the loot. You will win some and you will lose some, but we will do our best as officers in making informed and fair calls while removing the negatives that plague fixed and auction DKP systems.Guild Bank:
On progression content, the guild bank will help provide consumables and fully cover repair costs. This includes flasks, potions, and fish feasts. We can't always supply everything you will need so you will still have to provide some of your own consumables but if asked in advance we will try to regularly stock specialty consumables for our raiders. During new tiers of content we hand out the craftable required items (i.e. crusader orbs, primordial saronites) to our raiders to make gear for progression. Our officers lead by example and donate their badges when possible so that members can craft the gear they need without having to cover the cost of the prohibitive crafting materials. Many of our members will freely donate when they can to fellow members which we highly encourage.Attendance and Raid Times:
We want our active raid members to be able to maintain an 80% attendance with us. We depend on each of our raiders and it's expected (barring unforeseen events and emergencies) that when you will not be present to post on our forums or inform an officer ahead of time as time allows. It will be exceedingly rare (few times a year) that we ever push the raid beyond the finishing time and when we we do it is never more then 10 minutes.Our raid schedule is:We have ceased raiding.
