The Black Hand is not only a part of a very successful gaming community but also the longest running PvP focused Kin on the Meneldor server. Our history spans over half a decade through numerous other MMO style games.
Who do we seek?
We seek mature, PvP-oriented members to join up for our venture into the next chapter in the Lord of The Rings Online. Experienced or not, having a good head on your shoulders and a socializing, communicative way is always welcomed. We want people who enjoy teaming up and thrives in experiencing the social part of the MMO and especially group-oriented PvP.
Make no mistake; you WILL need an interest in PvP to become accepted. The only exception to the rule is if you´re a hardcore raider or crafter and willing to dedicate your time to the guild in those areas instead.
It´s also important that you understand the chain of command. We´re all human here and we don´t expect nor do we require you to do anything completely haywire but when things are decided upon, we expect our members to come through for the guild and to be proud of it.
What do we offer?
We feature a fully functional website with active forums, ventrilo communications, and a myraid of active members.
Our members are the most dedicated and active bunch I´ve ever experienced. All friendly, helpful and skilled and if you´re of that caliber as well, you will fit right in and feel at home. We build our community on a longterm basis and we want the best, so we offer the best. Ask any TBH member and they will most likely tell you that they´re in it for the long haul.
What is our current rank and structure setup?
We believe that alot of ranks create bulk within any kin or guild. We apply a simple yet effective rank system which goes as follows:
What are our goals?
Our long-term goals are currently as follows:
Create, forge and fuse the greatest Kin in the history of the business
Create, structure and execute the plans to reach the above and below goals
Establish the Kin ingame as the most respected/infamous Kin on the server
Achieve a self-sufficient ingame Kin through crafting, economics and diplomacy
Achieve PvP dominance through mastering group-oriented PvP
Achieve complete raid content clearance through rigorous raiding
Our tools to achieve this, beside our vast experience is constantly provided for the members on our forums.
Our PvP philosophy is deep yet simple; learn your class, practice in groups, hit first and hit hard. We are not a guild that will police our members and forbid them to PvP whenever they like against whoever they like, which is a vital part in perfecting the art of PvP. On the other hand, we will not indulge in spawn camping or mindless ganking, unless it serves a greater purpose of say zone control.
