The Dark Jedi Brotherhood's The Old Republic Guild refers to both the Sith Empire aligned guild under the banner of the Brotherhood. The server that the guild is currently on is: Star Forge

Guild Information

The only official Dark Jedi Brotherhood guild is currently aligned with the Sith Empire faction. This is located on the Star Forge Server.

While many club members also have characters aligned with the Galactic Republic, the DJB does not run an official guild with that faction.

Chat

The lifeblood of communication for the DJB's movements through The Old Republic galaxy will mainly be from the guild chat in the game but there are other places as well.

Discord

Members will use this service for Operations, Flashpoints, and PVP activities. Its highly suggested that all members use this service.

Current Information - DJB Voice Server

In Game

A custom channel was created called Brotherhood on the Empire Side to assist in getting Club Members invitations to the guild. To set up the channel, in The Old Republic, right click the chat tabs, click Create Custom Channel, and then type Brotherhood. You can also type the command /create Brotherhood into the chat box.

Awards

Clusters of Earth

The main awards earned for playing SWTOR are Clusters of Earth (refer to the link for additional information). These awards are automatically counted to your rank in the GMRG.

Rewarding

Members need to have at least 2 people from the actual DJB site, to qualify. A screenshot of the flashpoint quest complete box, the warzone scoreboard at the end of the scoreboard, or a group photo of the members who took down the world boss where everyone are next to each other, must be taken, and then submit it to the form on your admin menu.

Pendants of Blood

Refer to the Pendants of Blood Wiki Article for specific Guidelines. Guild or Server first achievements should be communicated directly to the Fist Staff.

Rules

  • Have fun!
  • Treat your fellow Guild Members respectfully
    • Racism, Homophobia, and/or Sexism will not be tolerated
  • Do not kill steal. Use common courtesy and move onto the next group of NPCs.
  • Groups may be formed from members all from the same DJB Unit, however excluding individuals from an Operations or Flashpoint group based on their DJB Unit is not permitted.
  • Ninja looting is not allowed.
  • If your character has not been active for more than 90 days and not a DJB Member, your character will be kicked from the guild to allow more members to be active.
    • Most DJB Members will be allowed to remain after those 90 days, but those that haven't logged in over 90 days can still be removed to allow more active members at the discretion of the Fist

Being in the Guild is a privilege, not a right. If you are a disruptive member to the rest of the Guild, the Overseer or Guild Leaders can have you removed.

Guild Bank Usage

  • Most importantly, recognize that the Guild Bank is fully funded and stocked by other members. Be respectful in the items you remove, someone had spent their time earning them and chose to donate them to the Bank to help other Guild Members improve their characters. Make sure you are putting them to good use.
  • The general intent of the Guild Bank is that it will be used for Character Equipment upgrades (either Crafted or direct items). If you remove an item to use for an upgrade it is good practice to replace it with a similar item in the future, "paying back" your withdrawal for future members who may one day be in the same situation as you were.
  • Do not remove and sell items (on the GTN or to NPC Vendors) from the Guild Bank for credit profit on your own character. If you are low on credits and need a loan contact a Guild Officer, they have greater access to the Banks Credit funds.
    • The chances of an activity like this resulting in a significant Net Loss to the Guild Bank are high when sold on the GTN, and are guaranteed when sold to NPC Vendors.

General Raid Guidelines

  • Need rolls are for your Character present in the Raid only, companions of that Character do not apply.
  • Be on 15 minutes before raid time
  • Show up with repaired gear and stims
  • Be on Teamspeak
  • Don't go AFK during boss fights
  • Don't loot the boss unless the Raid Leader says so
  • Prepare to be raiding for 2-3 hours
  • All decisions by the Raid Leader of the group can only to be overturned by the Praetor to the Fist or the Fist of the Brotherhood

Raid Loot Rules

These rules are designed for newer members joining a raid group, or a highly geared team joining another eight players to down the 16 man raids.

  • If a heavily geared member that is short by three or less pieces of top-tier gear for a full set agrees to help gear newer raiders through raid attendance, the geared member will be permitted a pre-raid assignment of a single specific drop. Newer raiders will roll on all other class drops, from which the geared member will refrain from rolling.
  • All pre-raid drop assignments will be announced before the start of the raid.
  • Pre-raid drop assignments will be limited to one drop per person per raid lockout.
  • Nothing prohibits the geared member that obtains a pre-raid drop assignment from rolling on off-spec and companion rolls.
  • These rules apply only to the highest-level tier in-game.
  • Raid leader will keep a tally on who has been receiving tokens of gear.

Note: These rules are for raids that are DJB only. In pick up raids it is highly encouraged that you roll for all loot either through the need (if you need it) or greed (if you don't need it but you like the look or want some extra money) options, or use master looter and everyone rolls for the loot if they need it or roll for if they want it for money.

Rank Structure

Administrative Ranks
