    Apart from established ranks this kind of as officers as perfectly as raid leaders, presently there are an abundance of niche roles that guild members can fall straight into. I am just personally with the viewpoint that many guilds may advantage from having a chosen whipping boy to call their quite own. You understand who I am talking about. Everyone cracks jokes at their expense. Problems are blamed upon him, even though he’s possibly not logged in.
