Avoid wintrading arena and abusing battlegrounds. Abusing battlegrounds can mean a number of things, such as going afk with malicious intent to benefit whilst not participating, joining just for marks at the end of the games, exploiting the map to prolong a game, queuing on alts for the pure purpose of inflating the bg queue with no intent to play the games on said alts or just joining battlegrounds with multiple characters (dirtyboxing/multiboxing). Doing any of the offenses listed will result in a permanent ban.
Ninja looting, blocking instances, getting players locked to ids with no intention of running the raid, removing people prior to boss loot distribution or just general griefing players using the ingame mechanics will result in a perm ban depending on circumstance.
If caught exploiting a bug for personal gain that doesn’t warrent a permanent ban, all the gear associated or benefits tied to the usage of said bug will be removed and depending on the extent more punishments could be included. Permanent bans are not uncommon in these circumstances.
Concerning ninjaed loot. First and formost loot rules need to be defined prior to the loot dropping. Get an answer from the leader or define them in the raid chat if you’re the leader. Makes sure to take screenshots. If someone breaks the agreed loot rules and ninjas an item, they will be permanently banned. If someone needs for ofspec with nothing defined it’s not against the rules and complaints without proof of defined rules and clear evidence of ninjaing will go unanswered. It’s also the communities roll to highlight ninjas and blacklist them from your groups.
Without clearly defined loot rules. The default is as followed –
MasterLoot: The leader is the master of the loot, they make all the decisions.
Need/Greed: Players who can use an item for their offspec can Need. It’s not advised as it will most likely tarnish a players reputation but it’s not a rule break.
Tip: If you are the leader of a group and you’re worried about ninja looters or people needing on offspec gear. Use the Master-loot setting and fairly distribute the loot yourself.
Is strictly forbidden in Isle of Quel’Danas. Considering this is a player hotspot with active world pvp, the team does not want to deal with multi-boxing drama. Outside of Isles multiboxing is allowed, but the only time you are permitted to world pvp with your multi-boxing team is if someone attacks your multi-boxing team first. This also means no multi-boxing in Battlegrounds/Arena/World Events.
Playing multiple characters but not using multi-boxing software. The use of dirtyboxing in Arena Chest Events or Battlegrounds/Arena is strictly prohibited resulting in harsh punishments (even if you aren’t pvping on both). Additionally dirty boxing in Isle of Quel’Danas is only allowed up to 1 extra character/client.
