The Minstrel's Ballad: Shinryu's Domain (Extreme) Completion Raid
Alith Completion Raids are designed for those members who are already familiar or experienced with the specified raid destination, and are looking to run the hardest raid content in FF14 with fellow Alithians. As these raids will often be the hardest group content in the game, it's important that you're confident in the fight mechanics themselves, but also confident with your own character build and skills. The requirements to attend these events, are to be familiar and confident with the fight mechanics, and ready to clear the raid with others who are also ready to clear it.
The ultimate goal here, is to clear the content as a group or possibly make multiple clears in one raiding session. We recognise that we do have a lot of players in our FC who have advanced past the learning stage, and are in need of a group with similar levels of experience to get the clear. So if you have already taken part in multiple learning raids, and now feel ready to clear the raid, then we recommend that you apply for these completion raids
Completion raids have been setup for those members in the FC, who want to clear content alongside fellow Alithians, while still retaining all our guild values - respect, courtesy, maturity, friendliness and focus on having fun!
Again, just like with the learning raids, we strongly encourage you to read all the details on each specific event post, to ensure you are well prepared & know what you're signing up for. We expect all attendees to respect & support the raid leaders, and avoid talking over them when they are issuing instructions and for the duration of the raid, so that they can focus on leading the group in a friendly & organised way.
As this is a completion raid, there is an expectation that you are confident and familiar with the mechanics / strategy of this content, and have enough knowledge of the fight to clear it (even if you have not cleared it yet)
The goal of this raid, is to clear the content, with potential multiple clears (if desired by the group on the day) without the need for a step by step breakdown of every mechanic from the start. You should be able to follow the instructions of the raid leaders when given.
A requirement for all raiders signing up (Healers DPS AND Tanks), is to confirm that you have successfully cleared the "Stone Sky Sea" DPS check for the raid you're signing up for. This is an instanced zone in the game, where you can put your DPS to the test, to ensure you have what's required. You can locate the NPC for this, just outside Rhalgars Reach (Battle-scarred Veteran). Do not worry if you aren't a DPS class, the "check" takes into account healer and tank classes, so you can still complete this check.
If you need help / assistance locating the NPC for Stone Sky Sea, or understanding how the DPS check works, please contact a raid leader who will gladly help!
Please make sure you have Discord installed and set up prior to the run. Let the raid leader or an officer know if you still need to be approved for the Alith Discord server. We require you to install it even if you don't have a microphone, just being able to hear instructions is a great help and very important. If you for some reason cannot use Discord or have difficulties with hearing instructions, let us know before the event so we can consider other arrangements.
During the raid we would kindly request that we maintain Discord silence during the time the Raid Leader is issuing commands & coordinating. It's a challenging role for our raid leaders to lead, co-ordinate, and give instructions for a large person group, and impossible for them if everyone is talking over each other - so please show due respect and patience.
Even though this is an Completion Raid event, we still expect everyone to be respectful, courteous and supportive of one another. That means no raging, flaming or being rude towards another member.
Please notice the end time to the event: If the run isn't completed by that time, the run could be terminated. Please, do not be disheartened. Of course, you are more than welcome to sign up for the next available run!
Upon completion of the content, the group can decide if you wish to move onto the next tier of raiding content, repeat the same content, or call the end of the raid.
How to sign up:
All members who wish to join, should sign up on the calendar and remember to state your role and average gear item level. (contact a raid leader / officer if you need help locating this).
If the event has reached maximum capacity - you can sometimes sign up as a reserve and may be invited to join if spaces become available. If there are enough reserves for an additional raid then a second group may be set up depending on Raid Leader availability.
Please aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time since that designates the time we actually start the run. Invites for the group go out 15 minutes before the start and if you are not there by that time, you may risk being replaced. We can't hold up other members as a result of 1 member running late.
In the event we do not get full attendance, we will aim to NOT cancel the raid. Instead we will attempt to fill the empty slots with Alith members who are online in game, and as a last resort, consider non FC players (provided the group are happy to do this).
Note that all calendar times are in CET (Central European Time).
We're looking forward to seeing you all at the run!
Alith Raid Leaders & Officers.
