It's with much excitement that we officially announce the launch of our Experienced Raids.
When we launched Alith Raiding, we laid out our plans for raiding in the FC, and started the program with our popular Learning Raids.

I speak for all the raid leaders and officers when I say we've thoroughly enjoyed the learning raids with you all, and they will certainly continue! It's been fantastic to get together with fellow Alithians, to learn, practice, and succeed in our learning raids - particularly in Deltascape Savage and the Primals. It's fair to say that we've made great progress, and although we are still growing as an FC, it's been awesome to see that we've still been able to get fully attended FC learning raids thus far.
We do recognise though, that we do have members in the FC who are passed the learning phase of many of the end-game raids, and are looking for that next challenge. Players who are already very confident with all the mechanics of certain raids, have already acquired high-end gear, and have mastered their class. Players who are looking to take on the tougher content of Final Fantasy XIV and are looking to clear the content with similarly experienced guild mates. It's super important to us, that we continue to look after our casual and learning raiders (and our Learning Raids aren't going anywhere!) but also equally important that our more experienced raiders in the FC, have content tailored for them. The last thing we want is for our Alithians to feel that they need to raid with other outside groups, or party finder, because Alith doesn't offer them what they need.
We've listened to your feedback, and with that we are very pleased to launch our Experienced Raids, which are specifically designed for that group of our community. This gives everyone a great path to follow, starting with our Learning Raids, and progressing onto our Experienced Raids. We will continue to post all of our events on our guild event calendar, so ANYONE who meets the necessary requirements, is welcomed to sign up to our new Experienced Raids (XP Raids).
As a result of the launch of our XP raids, we have re-adjusted our Raiding Schedule to fit them in. This new schedule will take effect from week commencing 4th December 2017.
We're looking forward to watching all you fellow Alithians progress through the end game raiding content together, and hope to see all of you experienced raiders signing up to the events! As this is the first time we're going to be organising these XP raids, we will watch our progress closely, and based on how things go & feedback we receive, we will make any adjustments needed to make sure they work for you. Please understand that due to the nature of these raid events, the requirements to attend will differ from the learning raids (they will be much higher), if your'e not quite ready for the XP raids, do not be disheartened as we fully intend to continue running our learning raids - on the new slot of Thursdays.
Onwards and upwards Alithians - can't wait to see that first clear of Deltascape 4.0 Savage with a full Alithian raid group - it will happen!

The Alith Officers & Raid Leaders
We're very pleased to introduce you all to our official Alith Member Awards program.
We have so many wonderful and amazing members in our community, who do so much good for the guild and are always being helpful. This is our special way of recognising those members who help make our community the positive, friendly, helpful place that Alith is. We recognise that if it wasn't for the great people we have in our guild, Alith wouldn't be the friendly, fun place that it is. Put simply, without YOU guys and girls, there is no Alith. For us it's super important that we shout out and celebrate all those who have made a positive difference, be it big or small.
Every month, we will carry out an Alith Awards ceremony, where we will be issuing out special awards to all those individuals who have been noticed for making positive contributions to the guild.
Head over to the full briefing on our forum, where you can read a summary of all our award types, along with a visual guide to our awards program. You can also view the full suite of awards by heading to our awards section from our main menu, or just click the link below.
We are very pleased to unveil our official FC Raiding program for our community!
Here in Alith, we are proud that we are able to offer all our members a wide variety of Raid Events for you to attend & enjoy with your fellow Alithians! This is thanks to our amazing & supportive Raid Leader team, who work closely with the Officer team, to make these fun experiences happen. Here in Alith you can enjoy a variety of Final Fantasy XIV raiding content, regardless of your level of experience.
Whether you have just started dipping your toe into the waters of the PvE Raids of FFXIV, and need a supportive learning environment, or have mastered the hardest content of the game and are looking for other veterans to tackle these challenges, there is something for you here in Alith. Our goal is to have "something for everyone" and to cater for all our members needs & desires, regardless of experience or skill level.
