In addition to the GM, OE boasts several officers and raid leaders who have taken on varying responsibilities within the guild. Each officer is expected to be an exemplar of everything the guild embodies, including responsibility, maturity, professionalism, and performance. OE officers are often among the best performing raiders on our team and are always available to offer advice or an ear.

Raid Team Members
Like officers, raiders are expected to act maturely and respectfully in every setting. Raiding requirements are discussed in Section II.
While Social members will not be invited to progression raiding on a regular basis, they are a highly valued part of Occasional Excellence. Social members are held to the same expectations as raiding members with regard to maturity and respect.
***OE defines acting maturely and respectfully to include refraining from the use of homophobic and racial slurs, and politely requests that all conversation pertaining to race, religion, gender, and sexual preference be had outside guild chat and mumble.***
II. Raiding with Occasional Excellence
Schedule – OE raids on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings starting at 8:00pm and ending promptly by 11:30pm Eastern. Because of the limited raid schedule, raiders are expected to be ready to enter the raid instance 10-15 minutes prior to raid time in order to ensure we begin raiding promptly at 8:00pm. Trash often starts at 7:50pm.
Attendance – All raid team members are expected to maintain consistent attendance, especially during periods of progression. Because of our focus on adult professionals, this attendance policy is fairly flexible, so long as there is constant communication between members and guild/raid leadership. However, advance notice (24 hrs) is expected for planned absences due to work, family, trips, etc. Consideration is given for more short-notice concerns as needed. Raiders who will miss a raid for any reason must sign up as "not attending" on our Enjin calendar. Failure to sign up for absences may result in consequences, including loot penalties.
Preparation – Each Raider is expected to come prepared with the required knowledge and materialsto raid successfully. Forum activity is strongly encouraged (See: Strat Club and Parse Club). Historically, these fora have been quite active even on off-days. Raiding only seven hours a week requires a great deal of preparation and coordination; coming to raid unprepared is unacceptable.
The guild bank will provide repairs, food, flasks, and pots for raid team members. Donations are not required for any members; however, members are encouraged to contribute when possible. Mats can be accessed directly from the guild bank.
Raiders are responsible for their own role and class-specific fight research, gems and enchants.
Discord – OE uses Discord as a tool during raid. Discord can be an exceptional tool for coordination and communication, but distractions should be limited during raid time. Please make sure to use this tool appropriately.
