    Greetings CoC Lovers! If it feels like it's been a while since I have done one of these, it's because it has been forever. LDoN has been long and brutal and we've lost some friends along the way because of it. But here we are at Gates of Discord with a strong raid force and new friends to punish another expansion with. Some updates: Wooz's truck flame decal business is really taking off. Val is starting to feel herself again. We've learned a lot about Ramasu's... enriched childhood. Cheo got a new PC or two. I am still a slave to earthly desires. Raeyne is still gross. Team Morning Wood is still destroying everything in sight. And our core raiders are holding down the fort. The officer meetup went well for some, not so well for others. Krok and I got busted for shoplifting hats. Bigpickle has settled nicely into his final form. Stoobid hasn't changed in the slightest. It's been a long, brutal expansion. A genuine thanks to everyone who stuck it out with us along the way.

    DON is complete! Due to mobs on the progression tracker, CoC finishes #1 for DoN as the only guild to have cleared all targets on the first raid night!! Granted, the lesser dragons drop subpar loots, but no other guild killed all the targets as the CoC did. To be fair to the guilds that pushed hard yesterday, CoC did finish #4 on killing Vishimtar. But you all know CoC is #1 in your hearts, minds, and on the progression tracker! Congrats and thanks to everyone on your hard work yesterday! (Edit a few days later - Rankings are now per Vishimtar kill time, where CoC still comes in at a strong #4, congrats to AoS/WT, OGC, and EoE!) Gawwin seems relaxed knowing the fight is ogre, but Vaughten is more interested in the musky odor coming from Vishimtar's armpit; Axxl plays a drum with a sword even though we all told him that doesn't work. Mellowtoast puts on his holiday hat to try to get Thornywoo's attention, but he remains aloof. Byte is really hoppy that we won; Jaccuze thought we did it purrfectly. I knew we'd beat him Soon, and hopefully not too Late before the other guilds took our position in the guild rankings. Buttlump is trying out his twerking moves to impress Kanamori who docks him 50 dkp for having Flight of Eagles up while Genavine giggles from her hiding spot behind Trafalgar. Temuujin is having a staring contest with Fuzzydunlop, but then Convulsia points out that the rabbit has no eyeballs and Venalin steps in trying to win with his left eye of Xygoz. Khorra and Xhann and Tarburz have a competition to see whose weapon is shinier and Tallenhof and Hoffette use this opportunity to offer discount prices on tickets for his now failing airline due to the arrival of Guild Halls. Rhiven and Goomah make eyes across from each other; Arylin smiles wanly knowing what's up while Callius checks out Goomah's butt. Stopcast holds out her arms to steady herself due to the shock of the win while Nenyen gathers energy to release another kame-ha-me-ha wave. Rayder measures Tinyface's face in the name of science and Mogui's face turns out to be way bigger, meanwhile, Methot shoves his head through a hole in Vishimtar's wing just in time for Splurtle to splurt on it. Jancen sits on Vishimtar's tail and watches as Vivisector remarks on how much weight Gohe has lost while Tirkaz appears to be trying to take a dump on Neveroom's head. Ramasu pets Slowbot's soft cuddly head with her glowing crystal staff while Blizzardeus stands watching from off to the side, wishing it was him. Mermal mermals softly to himself. Ythera tries to find Egith, Silkie, and Rorrar in this picture but can only find their floating names and only half of Rorar's name at that.

    I'm not sure many of you know what kind of people who run this guild, let me tell you. Back on Sept 1, 2016, both my husband and I was involved in a horrible accident. Which resulted in the death of my best friend, my hero and Knight in Shining Armour, my loving husband of 44yrs, Danny Ryan. I was trapped and it took 1.5hrs to cut me out of the semi, and was rushed to the nearest trauma hospital, Nebraska Med Center Omaha Ne. I received 2 broken legs (both Tibia and Fibia) , 100 stitches in my head and a torn rotary cuff. I had 3 surgeries on my legs and to this date, I'm still learning to walk again (doing good on it too) and live in a rehab center in Minnesota....though interesting what does that to do with the guild, you may ask. Let e explain below. Well, these wonderful people who you play this game with, upon hearing about what happened, got to work. Unbeknownst to me, mind you. Started a fund drive, with Ashlen and Blinky at the helm (correct me if I am wrong). Ashlen called me the 3rd day I was in the hospital and upon my approval,gave the guild progress reports. I had so many that called to find out how I was doing, and gave much needed moral support (want a lollipop little girl). This wonderful guild you know as CoC, gathered 3100.00, while I still was in the hospital (in Omaha, NE) and I was on my little tablet on TS, they sprung the news on me, while they where all on and about to go to raid,...Though I was drugged up, (as you imagine) I misheard the amount...I thought they said 31,000.00. I was like beside myself, but Ashlen said Val its 3100.00, all I could think was, they did this for me?! I was taken aback, shocked and very much surprised, and felt loved. As if they came through the internet and gave me a big hug, I so desperately needed! Morningwood crew got together and planned out grouped up to see what they could do, well with Poppyseed at the lead. They decided to get me my little laptop, thanks to Solitarie for picking it out. They just had it mailed and said not a word, they wanted it to be a surprise...which I was to be sure! What can a person say when this is done for them? Thank you seemed so little. So you ask why mention it now? Well I finally received my life insurance, but had it not been for the money they donated to me, I would have lost my home. I cannot say Thank you enough! So you see these are not just guildmates, they are my guardian angels, and I am humbled and proud to call my friends. I love you and Thank you for your kind gestures. I am forever grateful.

    We accomplished the first time OMM kill with the 2nd least number of people on Phinigel at 35 people (only AoS had lower numbers at 24 people)! Thank you everyone for your hard work and efforts to get this done!! Congrats to Entendre for beating us by a few hours (started earlier in the night than us) and Resolute for finishing literally less than 4 minutes behind us (wow, that was close) for their first time OMM kills also! It is definitely competitive to see how many guilds may yet place ahead of OGC for OoW!

    A few months back I discovered a monument that was OBVIOUSLY created to honour yours truly. Funny though, that even though this undying piece of art is done with great skill, the one who made it can't spell "Stoobid" properly! The first one to find this place and post a screenshot with him/herself in front of it will receive one Krono

    Hello CoC lovers, Dogwizard here. For our expansion update I finally figured out how to take a selfie. To be fair, Callius taught me how. So props to him. The Clan Skallagrim reunion went off without a hitch! Ashlen and Blinky finally tied the knot! And shit got weird with Penny. Goodbye has really stepped up his game and is crushing the parses. Grephyn finally got a fucking headset. Kanamori is still sick of your fucking bullshit. The Senior Officer meeting went well. And lastly, did you know that if you google "Whitest Person in America" you get one of our very own? See you in LDoN! <3

    Forward Scout Dogwizard has lead our crazed yet loyal leadership to the Lost Dungeons of Norath. They have returned with news of strategy and excitement. Get more drunk! Looking forward to another expansion, may the loot rain and pile to the sky. GO Cult of Chaos!

    I'll be moving the site over to a new provider here soonish. We'll be going with Amazon AWS as our new provider which will give me quite a bit more control over resources than with our current terrible provider. I'll be working on this probably after Christmas. I'll keep everyone updated.

    Cult of Chaos Phinigel’s Premier Fixed-Schedule Raiding Guild Do you know how to EQ? If your answer is, “Yes! And damn well, at that!” then read on: Are you in search of a guild that wins end-game content, functions as a team, and treats its members as individuals? Do you like to have fun while kicking ass and taking names? In CoC, you’re not just one of the crowd. Our members are our lifeblood, and we succeed because of the skill, enthusiasm, and dedication that each one of us brings to the table. We are currently looking for a handful of new members to join our ranks, and if you believe you would make an excellent addition to our team, we want to see your application! Basic Information on the Cult: Server Rank: 4 Loot System: DKP. Blind Bidding. Attendance Tiered. Raid Times: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 8PM to Midnight EST. Unofficial Raids as we can. Currently, Friday mornings and Saturday evenings. These are to help equip our members, but are not counted for attendance or DKP. VoIP: Discord What we expect of applicants: Level 70, with buffer 250 AAs minimum (more is better!) High raid attendance (90% plus is the ideal) Dedication and a team mentality Decent gear that shows you’ve put in some effort. Magelo or a raidloot.com account is required. Spells and Discs minus ancients up to level 65 Completed epic (1.0) if it remains useful in raid and group scenarios Class Reagents: While the guild will assist in paying for / reimbursing as needed, please be sure you have the appropriate reagents for your class. Example: emeralds for Clerics, peridots for Enchanters, pearls for Magicians, coffins for Necromancers and Shadow Knights, and EEs for Necromancers. Potions: Celestial Healing, Invisibility, Gate (for melee), Greater Null, Levitate, Shrink, Spiritualism Discord is mandatory during raids. You must be able to hear the raid commands and react at a second’s notice. We don’t have time to type out directions. Use of a headset while in Discord, along with the “Press to talk” functionality. Follow instructions without complaint. Be a Viking. If someone trains you, fight back. Don’t be an asshole. If we are competing for zone resources, do not taunt competing guilds. Try to remember it’s not personal. Download and learn how to use Gina. We are quickly moving to the point where Gina will be required on all raids. What we DON'T expect of applicants: To be glued to a batphone 24/7 To miss your kid’s, niece or nephew’s, husband or wife’s, etc, birthday party. Go. Have fun. Take pictures, we’d love to see! What you can expect from us: Consistent contact throughout your trial. Aliari (recruitment officer), other officers, as well as a member within your class. Our goal is to answer questions, supply information, and act as mentors. We want you to succeed. Strong leadership, in and out of raids. Solid organization skills. We get things done, and we do it well. Parse inspections at every raid. This allows us to see where we can improve, who might need additional coaching, and who is kicking ass. An extremely transparent DKP system. Put in the time and effort, and you will be rewarded. During your trial, you will earn DKP from raid attendance just as everyone else does, and are able to bid on items using the same rules as our casual raiders. Responsibility to our members. We’re in this together, and while EverQuest IS a game, it’s also more than that. We are a community. The Application Process: Step One: The Application Register and then fill out the application located at http://cultofchaos.com/forms/2-guild-application/ Create/Update a Magelo or Raidloot.com account and fill in your details and gear. Answer all questions honestly and thoughtfully. Take this seriously if you want us to take you seriously. Step Two: The Interview Assuming your application interests us, we will interview you in game or in Discord. Basic questions will be asked, including situational awareness, class knowledge, raid experience, typical playstyle, and what you are looking for in a guild. We will also be interested in who you are as a person and attempting to get a feel for your personality. Step Three: The Trial After the above steps have been completed, if we feel there is a strong likelihood of a match between us, you will be tagged at the rank of Applicant. Our trial lasts no more than 30 days, but in some cases, will end sooner. Throughout your trial, you will attend raids and group with our members, and just as you will be deciding how well Cult of Chaos fits your EQ life, we—leadership and members—will be doing the same with you. Personal judgements on your abilities, personality, willingness to learn, etc., will determine whether you should become a full member after the trial period ends. How can you make your trial successful? Ask questions if you have any confusion. Know how your class should function at a raid and step up to bat. Monks will pull. Clerics will chain. Warriors and knights will tank. We are looking for active players who can make a real contribution to our raid force. If you passively stand by while the rest of your class does the work, it WILL be noticed.

    For those of you in Discord, you'll notice there is a bot hanging out on the server. This bot is tied into the forums here and is set to post topics from certain forums into certain channels there on the discord server. I've given it some colorful commentary on topics for certain forums but still have some forums to set up for it. I've also installed a widget here on the forums to show who all is logged into the server.

    I wasn't in the guild at the time that this happened, but I do live in Omaha and have for my entire life. My wife works off 60th street and I-80, she had seen the aftermath driving home from work. We don't see that type of accident very often in NE. I never would have thought that months later I would be raiding in Everquest, an 18 year old MMO with one of the persons involved. I am very fortunate to have met you Val and look forward to becoming as much a part of the guild as you are.

    The phinny kills site that is linked to in the sidebar currently is dead. The site that replaced it is https://phinnyprogress.com so we should probably update the link to point to that instead. It doesn't have a forum like phinny kills did so that link can be removed.

CoA - Keldovan the Harrier, Ture, Warden Hanvar, Jelvan, and Arch Magus Vangl all dead! Not bad for a first run through CoA Grats Ythera, Mogui, and Venalin on our first Epic 2.0 Orbs! OMM's Next!

    Had some questions about my setup lately - this is pretty much it. 3 laptops (one displaying on a monitor), 3 desktops, separate mice, keyboards, etc. Once I play beyond 2, I have keyboards/mice set up with assist and ability macros, for dps at least. It's not efficient at all, but it gets the job done when there are slim pickings for groups.

    Ngreth mentioned in General the other day something that indicated experience rate would go from 'very low' to 'low'. Mepps, Senior Community Manager, responded to a question about this on the forums to indicate that at certain expansions, the EXP rate will increase somewhat, similar to experience rate increases that occurred periodically during these coming expansions. So... long story short - EXP will get slightly better during Gates of Discord! Yay!

    Since congress decided our information is no longer private on the internet, I've thought about getting a SSL certificate for the site and have the entire site run in https so the traffic is encrypted. What do you guys and gals think?

    With guild halls coming up soon with Dragons of Norrath releasing on phinny. Parsing on dummies in the guild hall will be something everyone can do. Gamparse is something I used heavily on live, parsing out how raid DPS was being handled by multiple classes and keeping track of who was casting what on raids and leading my cleric team to be casting the right spells in their own groups. I even did this for CoC back when I was playing. Gamparse should be used by not just class leaders, but others to see what they can do improve themselves.
