Raiding
Dark Raider Rank:

The Dark Raider Rank is made up of those that are serious about raiding and committed to perfecting their main character and maximizing their contribution to a raid. People with this rank understand that raiding is a team effort and everyone must perform to their maximum potential. They’ve researched and understand their class mechanics. These are the people who work hard to get their gear to raid level by running heroics or having gear crafted. They do not rely on raiding alone to gear their character. They farm reputation that can provide gear upgrades and gear enhancements . They have their gear properly gemmed and enchanted to support their role in a raid. They study raid encounters to get a general idea of what to expect to make it easier on our raid leaders. They always come prepared with raiding consumables and don’t care how much repair costs are. When they sign up for a raid they can be counted on being there, on time, and for the duration.

Dark Raiders have first priority on all progression raid content subject to slot availability and class mix. Non-Raider Rank members may still sign up for raids, but will only be confirmed if there is a shortage of raiders or an issue where their class/spec may be needed, and then it will be at the Raid Leaders discretion.
