Hey everyone.

I am very new to MMORPGs.. i was mmorpg virgin until I hit rift and now im hooked.

I have my own guild now and is going better than i thought it would. After being in two other guilds I took the highs and lows from both and decided to make a friendly only guild with no pressures on anyone.

So these are my general questions that ppl may or may not know.

I am T2 geared and have done some end game content.. I take my guild on Expert rifts etc and we have tried a raid rift but i need to be better equipped in my knowledge before we attempt them again.

Ok here goes.

1. When I take my guild to a raid I have been told by some that it is best to use the ruler where ppl use /role. Could someone explain how this works and the benefits of using it. I don't even know how to set that up lol.

2. When i have been in other peoples raids I have seen orange important messages pop up in the middle of my screen. I was wondering how I do this.

3. Is there a simple way to know how many members you have in your guild? I have looked but couldn't find. I don't mind counting them all i just wondered.

4. Perks for guild. These raid perks... can they be used in T12, T2s, Rifts and raids? as they seem pretty cool but my previous guilds never used them.

5. Are the epic chains rewards at end better than other epics you can buy. The epic helmet and epic two handed hammer?

6. Is wisdom the most important thing for ranged dps cleric? along side focus?

7. Where is best places to get Greater essences and even lesser essences for ranged dps cleric?

8. What are the best items for ranged dps cleric in game and where can I get them?

9. Macros. How do i use macros to macro whispers to ppl in my guild etc? So I don't have to keep typing the same things out.

10. I was wondering what best dps ranged cleric build after 1.4 update is. I posted in right bit I think so here is link:

There are probably more but il put in when i remember lol.

I know there a are a few. I have googled so many other things and pestered ppl on my shard and I feel I have a decent knowledge of the game but you can never know enough in this game.

So thank you to whoever can help me out. Appreciate it.

Wow, that's a lot of questions. I'm pre-coffee, but here's a couple answers:

Role let's you tag people with numbers in a raid. Here's a list of raid and part specific commands:

Guild Perks can be handy:

Here's the epic quest series: You'll have to decide yourself if the rewards are better.

Sorry, before coffee all I can do is link guides, lol.

1. Loot is usually distributed based on main spec during raids and how x item can make x player better at that role. So a axe with crap ton of dexterity on it and no physical crit would benfit a Rogue dps more then a Warrior two hand player.

2. I thinkkk that is just typing /raidwarning and your message

3. Press G look at the roster?

4. Yes..the one to get extra marks of ascension or items is almost a must and it does work

5. The first epic chain requires A CRAP TON OF EFFORT and you have to run the raid to get that item which is nice. The newest water saga chain is much less effort and rewards Tier 2 shoulds a Raid helm

6. Cleric stuff is here

7. Best lessers and greaters are from Raid rifts.


9. ummmm not sure..pretty sure you can just right click on there name and choose the whisper option

10. This might help

You basically just link the item in Raid chat and tell people who can use for main spec raid to hit /roll and whoever wins gets it.

You might want to research how to use Master Looter option during raids for the above to work.
