ROLL CALL April 2022 VANQUISH’S 8th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION EDITION
Welcome to the Vanquish 8th Birthday Celebration Roll Call! We are gathered on Discord in the PvE 1 voice channel, as always, the Roll Call text will be here in Guild Chat.
Huge WELCOME to all our newer members, we are happy you have joined, fresh blood is what keeps Vanquish so lively! Also, welcome to a time-honored tradition…the Vanquish Roll Call! We are honored you have chosen Vanquish as your guild home in ESO and look forward too many adventures together.
I hope everyone is enjoying our 8th Birthday Celebration! There are still more events this evening! Roll call will be followed by Run-Away-Bride. We have NEW BINGO cards for a special Saturday edition of FnF with Dantheman, followed by Saturday night Trials!
Eight amazing years and still growing and moving forward every day. You, the members of Vanquish, still surprise, and amaze me with your generosity and hospitality. Today’s birthday gifts and prizes show how generous our members are. And our continued growth and success is fueled by your hospitality.
It has always been and will continue to be your honorable actions, respect, and loyalty toward each other, that sets Vanquish apart from other guilds. Duck and I are honored to lead this Vanquish Family. Thank you ALL for making Vanquish your home and joining us on this awesome adventure.
First order of business the Website and Discord::::
The website… It is the glue that binds us as a family, it brings a level of cohesion and organization that is part of any long-term guild. Everything you contribute to the website becomes part of Vanquish’s history. It is the first thing possible recruits and new members see. Please do your part to keep the website active and engaging.
Yes, I know, I always say that don’t I? Well, it is true, and I do wish more of you visited the website on a regular basis. Add a character to the roster, set your time zone in your profile so the Events show in your time. Browse the Vanquish Highlights section to learn more about our history.
The GUIDES section of the website is public, please share the links with your friends and on-line places you think the links can be helpful. Increased website traffic often leads to new recruits!!
Visit the TRIALS header at the top of the website, between GUIDES and ROSTER to learn how you can become involved in Vet Trials with Vanquish. Anyone that meets the requirements for Level Trials can lead or host a vet trial. If you are interested in Vet Trials visit the TRIALS page and get started today!
Our Discord was hacked in February, and a new server was set up immediately. Those of you that have not yet joined the NEW Discord server can find the new address on the forums or here on the Guild Home page <G> key folks.
Discord channel #role-assign (directly under the announcements channel) is where you can go to assign yourselves the Trial, WZW, or FNF tags. Just click on the corresponding reaction for each of your interest and you will receive notifications when something important is posted regarding these groups.
The website and Discord are overflowing with, information, and engaging conversations. If you are not taking advantage of these resources, please consider doing so. You do not know what you are missing if you are not utilizing what is offered!
Some general information that I always include for our newer members. (Additional details and more topics can be found on the website under the “New Members Start Here” forum) …..
GUILD BANK:: Items in the guild bank are FREE! Guild banks work the same way as your personal bank space; however, the guild has the right to set permission by rank. All members of Vanquish can view, deposit, and withdraw items from the guild bank. All members can deposit gold in the guild bank, an Officer rank or higher is required for coin withdraw.
The bank is stacked full of items for new members, alts, and veterans alike! If you have items that you want to insure, go to someone that can use them offer them up in guild chat and mail to a member in need of them. Shell does this all the time, and it works great! If you make something for a specific member of the guild mail it to that person.
If you put gold in the guild bank by accident, this happens when folks are paying dues to trade guilds and select the wrong guild bank, contact an officer they will return your gold to you. Items in the guild bank are FREE! Please use common sense when making deposits/withdraws is all that we ask.
GUILD HALL::: To get to the Guild Hall press “G” to bring up the Guild home page>move to Roster(the second tab)>locate @vanquishguild on the Roster page >right click @vanquishguild>select “Visit Primary Residence”. BOOM you are there.
The easiest way to do this is sort the Roster page by rank and look for the treasure chest icon to the right of @vanquishguild should be 3rd on the list make sure you uncheck hide off-line.
The Vanquish guild hall is a great big place with lots of cool things in it! You can find all the normal crafting station, every world crafting station. There is a dye/outfit station, transmute station, banker, merchant, and numerous target dummies, all mundus stones, and the Vanquish Vamps can enjoy a willing thrall or drink at the ancient basin!
EVENTS::: It is amazing the number of long running static events we have on our calendar. Members love MnM, UDT/SP’zoneD, Helm Runs, WzW, TTP, PvP 101 FnF, SmS, , and the many normal trials offered each week. These static events range from new player to veteran content, there is something for everyone! Visit the Events page for all the details.
I do wish that the daytime and late-night members had the same opportunity to attend these events during their normal play hours. If there is anyone on during the daytime or late-night that would like to host a WB, Undaunted, PvP, Pledge, Helm Run or trial event, post it at a time that works for you and have fun!
If you need help getting started, our current event hosts would be happy to explain the schedules and/or way they run the events. Just ask if you are interested in hosting, we would love to bring these events to as many members as possible.
REMINDER ::: You must be logged into the website and added at least one character to the roster to sign up for events. Be sure to set your time-zone under your profile so the events start time is your time! As I said you can find more detailed information and directions in the “New Members Start Here” forum.
Next up State of the Guild::::
Today is Vanquish’s 8th Birthday Celebration! The fact that we have been an active and growing guild since the first day of early access here in ESO speaks for its self as to the state of Vanquish! Eight years later here we are still going strong, still clearing content, still enjoying each other’s company.
You, the members, empower and inspire your guildmates every day. You continue to be the most selfless, kind-hearted, helpful, and supportive group of people I have ever known.
Your unwavering support of Vanquish’s Core Values - Respect, Attitude, Loyalty, Activity, and Confidence is what sets Vanquish apart from other guilds. It is YOU the members that continue to open your hearts and welcome new recruits with open arms.
The Leadership Core keeps things running around here on the administrative and recruitment side of the guild. However, it is ALL OF YOU, the members that continue to grow this guild, and make a place for new members to call home.
Our roster currently has 388 active members that have logged in over the last 30 days. Of those 388 members 341 logged in over the last 7 days. In the last 3 days 313 members have been logged in!
Those are incredible #’s, most mid-size and large social guild keep inactive accounts on their rosters to inflate their numbers. Not here at Vanquish, when you look at the number of people on the guild roster, those are active accounts that are logging in, not dead accounts just boosting our numbers.
WE are 388 members strong! That is 388 quality members strong, and steadily growing which brings us to……
RECRUITMENT! It seems what we are doing is working, and if it isn’t broke let’s not fix it. As always, our doors are open to family and friends of current members. Continue to direct your friends and family to the site to fill out an application.
I will continue to monitor our recruitment thread on the Official ESO Forums. Nuke will continue to add the recruitment post to the ESO SubReddit Guild Fridays. Testimonials from you about your experience with Vanquish continue to impress potential recruits reading these posts and in turn they become applicants and new members.
If you would like to add your Vanquish testimonial to the recruitment post, contact me and I can get you a link to the Recruitment thread!
|H1:guild:2707|hVanquish|h is also listed in the in-game guild finder. Members can share the link in tells or group chats with potential recruits from the bottom of the recruitment tab on the Guild Home Page <G> key.
The |H1:guild:2707|hVanquish|h link clearly states that all applicants through the guild finder will be declined and that they MUST apply via the application on the website. So be sure to draw attention to this fact when chatting with potential recruits, they will have to visit the website!
DO NOT spam the |H1:guild:2707|hVanquish|h link in zone chat! (exceptions will only be made during special events such as Roll Call, Xmas party, and other special events when there is a large Vanquish group together in a zone)
Word of mouth from our members continues to be the best forms of recruitment. While adventuring or PUG’ing if you happen to cross paths with someone you feel may be a good fit for Vanquish, simply provide them with the |H1:guild:2707|hVanquish|h and send them to the site to have a look around and fill out an application if they like what they see.
Overall Guild Direction:::
Vanquish is a guild of moderation first and foremost. As a guild of "moderation" we choose to explore every bit of content the game throws our way from PvP to PvE, End Game to Crafting and light RP without pigeonholing ourselves into saying we focus on any one aspect.
Vanquish’s overall direction is not changing, our long-term goal has always been to see our members through all the content ESO has to offer. ZoS continues to add content and Vanquish members continue to strive forward and progress through the content.
We will continue our focus on being supportive of all areas of the game. We will continue to bring all levels of content to our members with events and support that range from beginner to endgame content. If you identify a, need we are not meeting bring it to the attention of the Core Leadership Team.
Current Guild Direction and Future Goals:::
We remain focused and committed to the Daggerfall Covenant and the 3-banner war in Cyrodiil. Vanquish has become a very well-known and respected Guild in PvP. We have officers and members alike out on the battlefield throughout the day making a difference and winning battles.
The evening wzw group is always running with the Warzone Wednesday requirements in place. Please be sure to check out the updated requirements on the forums. You can also find a link to them in the pinned posts in the pvp-chat channel on discord. This is not to be exclusive but for the health of the group.
The bar is not that high and can be met with craftable sets and monster helms from easy dungeons we will run with you to get. If anyone is unsure if their build qualifies, needs help putting a build together, getting gear, or advice on leveling, they should reach out to Dan, Fripp, or Sarah. They can also post in the PvP-chat channel or PvP-builds channel in discord.
Bottom line here for PvP is ….IF you want to be involved all you need to do is speak up! We have the resources to help we just need to know you are interested.
Friday night Fights has historically been one of our members favorites and most attended events. FnF’s relaxed nature and fun atmosphere are a great way to start the weekend. PvP’ers and PvE’ers alike love to sit back and enjoy the ride as their AP meters rise, and Dan keeps them entertained in what can only be described as “Dan’s Greatest Show on Earth”.
If you have never attended a FnF event with Vanquish, I recommend you do. You don’t have to be a PvP’er, you don’t need any special gear, you don’t need a fast pony. And if you are a PvP virgin don’t worry, I can guarantee you…..you’ll never forget your first time with Dan!
The goal of winning the 3-banner war might be a little out of our reach. As we strive to keep DC in the running for the campaign win the Vanquish PvP goal is to offer end game PvP to any of our members willing to step it up for the Covenant!
We plan to bring back “Introduction to Veteran Trials” sometime in May. The Intro covers the Craglorn vTrials and it is a great way to ease your way into PvE end game. No experience necessary, you’ll learn mechanics, what is expected in a vTrial, and how to progress to the harder stuff once you complete the Intro.
Once again, I want to encourage anyone that is interested in vTrials to visit the website and read through the information available under the TRIALS header. The “Level Trials Point System” is set up to allow each of you control over your own progression.
This new system has very attainable requirements, we’ve put together a system that allows you to easily submit screen shots and get your Discord Roles. Then all that needs to happen is someone needs to schedule a trail and members with the corresponding tags can sign up.
We are opening the ability to organize Trials guild wide. In the past, trial times were always determined by the available times of an Officer or Raid Lead. This practice locked many willing and capable players out of participating. Now you the member can schedule a trail of your level or below at a time of your choosing.
Our Events Page tells our success story with all the static event mention earlier. We will continue to support our event host and promote our members character development by offering you content every day! Beginner to veteran Vanquish members will be there with you to discover and conquer all current and future content.
However, YOU the member must take the first step to ensure the success of your own progression. If you are interested in content take the step needed to get involved. Sign-up for the events, ask questions, seek out the officer or guard members that run the content.
Use the resources we have provided for you and take the first step toward your content of interest. We will absolutely help you and guide you to success once you have taken the step to get involved.
The Vanquish Guard is comprised of senior members who have dedicated their time and effort for the benefit of the guild. These sentries of Vanquish stand guard and protect our core values through their ability to teach, lead, and guide other members. They are exemplary members who deserve to be recognized for their loyalty to Vanquish, honorable actions and noble deeds.
Joining the ranks of the Vanquish Guard today are @davedek, @Morrigain415, and @ScotchyMcbinge!!! Thank you for all that you do for Vanquish!
Thank you, Vanquish Guard (both new and currently active), for helping to enrich and grow our community. Your contributions to Vanquish include but are not limited to willingness to help with anything, advice and knowledge shared, leading and/or running events, crafting services, a sense of humor and ability to bring laughter to us all. The things you do every day are the things that help Vanquish stay strong and healthy.
*** You can find all current members of the Vanquish Guard on the in-game Guild Roster when you sort by rank. And on Discord their names appear in orange. ***
Current Leadership Core or meeting the officers …….
Vanquish is led by the husband-and-wife team of Duck and Savina. Savina is the in-game Guild Commander, Duck holds the in-game rank of Commander. Make no mistake leading this guild is a team effort and we have total confidence and faith in our Vanquish Leadership Core.
I am Savina (@Savina.09) and who I am and what I do is…. I carry a big stick and keep all Vanquish members informed with spammy walls of text.
Seriously, my job is guild direction, guild and member management and overall director of Vanquish.
Duck (@Duck17) keeps all of you entertained and informed with his famous “ducksplations” as he leads you through various content. He hosts several events and comes up with new ideas regularly to enhance your gaming experience.
Duck keeps things running around here, literally…. he manages the events page, website, discord, message of the day, officers, and on top of that he also covers day to day operations of Vanquish!
I am honored to stand with Duck as your Guild Leaders. We consider ourselves blessed to be leading such an incredible group of people.
Infidelux (@Infidelux) is Guild Captain. He is dedicated to Vanquish in all regards; he is here every day driving the guild forward by being involved in each aspect of our community. “Block! Or don’t, he’s not your Mom.”
Truth is Infi has spent years grooming and nurturing our members, helping them grow and improve. Infi is there in everything we do as a guild, from beginner to end game we can count on him to be right beside us helping and guiding us.
Infi hosts SmS, and Saturday Night Tials every week, while also attending many other events. He helps with recruitment, applications, and guild direction. He is usually soft spoken, and sometimes taken for granted but trust me he is one of the champions of our guild.
Infi is always looking out for every member when it comes to the big picture of things around here. Infi is a website and Discord administrator, and creator of the VnqBot.
Infi’s roles also include officer management, member management, and overall guild cohesion. He is an end game PvE specialist. He wears a lot of hats folks!!
Dan (@danthemann5) is our PvP Captain and expert on all things PvP related. He is a skilled leader and motivator that when not engaged in active battle will make you laugh and enjoy PvP on an entirely different level than ever before.
When not leading a PvP event or group Dan devotes time to teaching and mentoring members looking to learn or hone their PvP skills. Dan pours his heart and soul into making Vanquish the best we can be in the 3-banner war.
Dan hosts FnF and WzW each week and runs PvP groups most evenings at varying times. If Dan is in the PvP 1 Channel in discord anyone can jump in and join him. If you have questions about PvP, he will provide you with the answers or the resources to get the answers.
Dan’s role includes advisor, teacher, and leader of PvP content, guild PvP direction, and guild cohesion among our PvP focused members.
Christopher (@Xrist04) is possibly the Vanquish member with the deepest roots here in Vanquish. He comes from the parent guild of the Vanquish founders. Christopher’s loyalties have never faltered, he always has and always will be the living embodiment of Vanquish.
Christopher is a full content officer, by his own admission in his Member Spotlight he loves it all! Trials, dungeons, PvP, and solo play. He loves the questing, exploring, lore, story-modes, speed runs, normal and vet content.
Christopher’s long standing Vanquish membership and continued activity in ESO makes him a knowledge bank beyond compare in guild and game related topics. He’s a true representation of the Vanquish membership and asset the Leadership Core is lucky to have.
Christophers’ role include member management, new player orientation, community adviser and full content officer.
DeSyreni, (@DeSyreni) is the Officer with the most nicknames and she answers to all of them! Sparkles, Shai, or whatever nickname you use, contributes so many things here at Vanquish I can’t even keep up with all the things she is doing.
Shai is a vet content achievement hunter, a dps mentor, a PvP queen and the list goes on and on. She is a full vet content officer who specializes in making the impossible happen!
Personally, I’ve never meet anyone like Shai before and I’m proud to call her friend. She is humble and kind, and her knowledge of ESO covers all content. She is funny, helpful, knowledgeable, and tough as nails.
DeSyreni’s role include Event Lead, member management, new player orientation, community adviser and vet content officer.
Fripp (@Fripplethorn) is levelheaded and calm in the face of battle in Cyrodiil. He is creative in strategies, he is creative in his music, and in his builds. He has an open mind and is willing to consider and try anything. Fripp steps up to see the dirty deeds done and he will be there to help you celebrate the win!
Since Fripp joined Vanquish, he has continued to bring fun times in PvP. He teaches, he listens, he learns, and he shares. And guess what? I found out he knows things……outside of PvP! Who knew right?
I have discovered that Fripp is a full content officer. When least expected you’ll find him answering questions about crafting and PvP (ShHHH don’t tell Dan) He even runs in dungeon groups and trials from time to time!
Fripplethorn’s role includes community adviser, full content officer, PvP lead, PvP content officer.
Kildaan (@Kildaan) has been told repeatedly “Kildaan you had ONE job”! However, no one has told him what that ONE job is. This works in our favor of course because we find Kildaan everywhere, trying to do everything, because he wants to do his ONE job the best he can.
He will take you anywhere you want to go! The guy knows no boundaries, he is good at everything, and he has a bear for every occasion. He leads us and inspires us to think outside the box. If you want to try something crazy, he’ll be right there with you, and generally finds a way to make it successful.
Kildaan host drunken trials on Fri., and he is the creator of the “Da Bears”, “Pet Sorc Only”, and several other “just for fun” Events. He has awesome ideas and has brought a lot of good times and laughs to Vanquish. (Although, we are still waiting for the day he brings donuts to the officer’s lounge)
Kildaan’s role includes Event and Raid Lead, full vet content officer, master of “ALL PET” Events and Raids.
Nuke (@NukeLikeTheBomb) is filled with determination and a bit of sass to be sure, and he always amazes us with the knowledge he holds. He soaks up information like a sponge, and he loves to share what he learns. Nuke is a true diplomat who brings peace and harmony to everything he does.
Nuke actively runs all content in the game and is a regular on the PvP scene. Nuke helps with recruitment by post on Reddit Guild Fridays and interacting with potential recruits that have questions about Vanquish.
Nuke’s role includes recruitment, community adviser and delegate, member management, PvP lead and PVE content officer.
Sarah (@Kamali’i) is the generous host of PvP 101 every other Friday. She helps our members that have never stepped into Cyrodiil before and those that just want to learn more about PvP with the basics.
Sarah guides our new members and veterans along the path from PvP noob to end game PvP contender. Sharing advice, builds, knowledge and always making sure everyone has what they need to be successful in one of the most competitive areas of the game is what Sarah does.
Sarah also ventures into the PvE (carebear) realm with us for pledges, World Boss events, and if you are in the right place at the right time, you’ll even find her farming resource nodes and doing daily writs.
Sarah’s role includes PvP lead, member management, new player orientation, community advisor and PvP content officer.
Joining the Leadership Core today in the Officer rank is…………
Taeve (@Thimblewearer) is stepping up from Vanquish Guard to Vanquish Officer today. I don’t have all the pre-written things to say about what she does as officer just yet. I will tell you that we do know that Taeve will bring fresh ideas and views to the Leadership Core.
Taeve has always stepped up when needed to help run events, as well as hosting some of her own such as the Star-Gazing event in Craglorn when we have folks interested in it. Taeve has also been learning the role of Raid Leader during our Sunday Raid Leader edition nTrials.
Taeve actively attends many events each week and she is active in all content. We are excited to have her on the Leadership Team as we know her to be honorable and loyal to the Vanquish member above all else. Please join us in celebrating Taeve as Vanquish’s newest Officer!!
Taeve’s role includes member management, new player orientation, community adviser and full content officer.
That is your Core Leadership Team folks!! I want to thank you all for coming out tonight! As always forward we go, making our own way with Loyalty, Honor, Excellence and Booze!
ROLL CALL April 2022 VANQUISH’S 8th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION EDITION TRANSCRIPT
Savina / Apr 15, 2022
