1. Effort Points System (EP/GP)
1.1 Generally: Effort Points tell how much effort one has put into the guild. Gear Points tell how much loot one has received from the guild. Points are personal to each player - nobody can receive points on your behalf, and points you receive are not transferable to any other person.
1.2 Effort Points (EP): earned during Raids, or for deeds that help the guild (e.g., donations to Guild Bank).
1.3 Gear Points (GP): assigned during Raids to anyone receiving loot, according to the GP schedule spreadsheet.
1.4 Ratio: A player's Ratio is their Effort Points divided by their Gear Points. (Ratio = EP/GP)
1.5 Initial Values: Every player starts with 0 EP and 100 GP.
1.6 Decay: Each player’s balance of earned Effort Points and Gear Points decays by 15% every Friday night.
2. Loot Rules
2.1 Generally: The winner of an item is the person of the highest Priority and Ratio. Each item is classified as either Healing, Caster DPS, Melee DPS, Ranged DPS, Tank, or No-spec. Items can have more than one spec classification.
2.2. Priorities: A player's Priority is determined by their Rank and Spec, from highest to lowest, in the following order:
1. Warriors & Champions, Main Spec
2. Champions, Off Spec
3. Initiates, Main Spec
4. Warriors, Off Spec
5. Initiates, Off Spec
6. Champion Alts
2.3 Special cases
2.3.1 Warriors have priority over Initiates on loot on their main spec, so long as they maintain at least 1000 EP;
2.3.2 Champions get +5 to their ordinary Ratio, so long as they maintain 4000 EP;
2.3.3 Champions get the ability to win off-spec items over Champions and Warriors when their ratio is at least twice the ratio of any other player wanting the item for main-spec. This rule can only be used if the item has dropped at least twice.
2.3.5 Champions pay 50% of the GP cost when taking an item for their off-spec, except if they take the item over a Champion's or a Warrior's main spec.
2.3.6 Warriors and Initiates pay 50% of the GP cost when taking an item for their off-spec.
2.3.7 Vanity items always cost 50% of the normal GP price.
2.4 Ninja Looting: Please do not loot anything unless told. This includes loot from trash-mobs.
A player who accidentally loots without permission gets charged double the ordinary item GP.
A player who intentionally loots without permission gets guild kicked.
2.5 No-spec Items: These items are “main spec” for everyone who can equip them, regardless. (e.g., boss heads, pvp items)
2.6 Vanity Loot: Players can take Items with no practical use, but only if nobody else wants them for main or off spec.
2.7 Alt Loot:
2.7.1 Whenever a player is not playing on their main character during a raid, they are considered an Alt.
2.7.2 Between alts from the same rank, loot is decided by /roll.
2.7.3 In AQ20, ZG, Molten Core & Onyxia, loot is free.
2.7.4 In BWL, AQ40 and Naxx, loot always costs 50% of the item's full GP price.
2.8 Unwanted Loot: if no players are rolling on an item, the Raid Leader may decide to force a player to accept the item if the item is a clear upgrade for that player. An item is a clear upgrade when online officers agree. Else, the item is disenchanted or destroyed.
2.8.1 Head of Onyxia can be acquired for free for mages, priests, warlocks and champion shamans and druids if no one else, including alts, wants it.
2.8.2 Head of Nefarian can be acquired for free for champion mages, priests, warlocks, shamans, druids and hunters if no one else, including alts, wants it.
2.8.3 Heart of Hakkar can be acquired for free for hunters, rogues and warriors if no one else, including alts, wants it.
2.9 Legendaries and Rare Recipes: The general loot rules referred to in Rule 2.1 do not apply to Legendaries and Rare Recipes. Instead, they are awarded first according to the below priority recipients. If none of the priority recipients are online and present, the items are then awarded by a Loot Council composed of the online Officers.
2.9.1 Garr binding:
2.9.2 Geddon Binding:
2.9.3 Eye of Sulfuras: Shaitan
2.9.4 Splinter of Atiesh: 1. Paqman 2. Umek 3. Iamlocked

2.11 Rerolls: Players may permanently change their Main Character or Main Spec by posting their Request to the Forums and obtaining the approval of 3 Officers. The person is charged -500 EP, +50% of his current GP and cannot be promoted to Champion until two weeks have passed.
