Jardal and I are responsible for coming up with a monthly “All Level” guild event. If your guild doesn’t do any casual, social events, then I highly recommend starting some up. They are a great way to bring a community together, without the pressures of raiding. This is especially important if you have any new members without level capped characters – an event like this might be the only group interaction they can take part in.
Our first event was timed around Halloween, so we did a sort of “Trick-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt”. We provided a list of clues to the locations of several hidden Sidhe Devils. The goal was to find each person, pick up a “treat” from them, then head to the final location to receive a prize. It was very fun to see how the clues were interpreted, and where people ended up on their hunt. We used seldom visited locations like Ravenholdt, and the Warsong Gulch entrance. We’ll probably do a variation of this event in the future, as it was a blast!
Last night we had another event titled “Orgrimmar Holiday Party”. We formed a raid group and headed out from Ratchet, charging towards the gates of Orgrimmar.
Just before reaching the PVP flagged zone we changed into our party outfits and danced . There was a little bit of trivia, some Peggle duals, presents, and general silliness.
I think we successfully confused the Hordies that were wandering around. I’m not sure why they thought we were going to raid Orgrimmar in dresses and mounted on Reindeer. Actually, now that I think about it, raiding Orgrimmar on reindeer would be pretty epic. Someone should do that.
According to my WordPress stats and feedburner I apparently have a few readers now. So I throw the question out to you – what kinds of social guild events have you taken part in, or would like to take part in?
