Vote on whether or not to allow DKP to be moved from one of a player's toons to another OF THAT SAME PLAYER'S TOONS with a 50% DKP penalty.

The move can only be done once per month, per player.

Please discuss your position if you wish, no bickering!

Do you mean moving it to your alts

Or do you mean giving it to another person in the guild?

And if thats it, why not just let people bid in care of another?

"OMG your using a RUSTY SWORD at 65?"

/gu dudes I'm bidding 12 DKP on the {shabby sword of power} for *gimp PC here*


Clarity is our friend.

This is my fault, so let me explain my situation and that of others like me.

You all know I was playing Amadus for a long time. I've decided to play my wizzie as my main now (for those who haven't heard, when I came back to eq, all my pp and half my gear was gone, gm's can't do anything about it. Raising a few hundred k to replace the gear isn't something I want to spend my time on, and due to our lack of wizzies, I know playing a wizard full time would be much more beneficial to the raids than a gimp half naked warrior).

At the same time, I have about 100 raids worth of dkp on Amadus, and losing the "reward" for spending all those hours raiding isn't appealing. I refuse to log him on for loot raids and take away upgrades that could have gone to other peeps just because I have a shitload of dkp to burn.

The idea behind this is just to make it easier when people want to change mains. There aren't many of us who do that, but it does happen.

I know this wasn't in the bidding, but I want to set a minimum for the amount of points elligible to be moved.

I want to set the limit to no less than 20 DKP be moved for a total of 10DKP to the final destination per move.

That way the officers aren't constantly scrambling to do adjustments of under 20/10DKP.

With 114 raiders that's a possibility of more than 100 adjustments per month!

So if you wanted 20 for "X" toon it would cost 10 extra.Then where would the 10 extra go ?

This is total DKP btw. Not just moving "some" of the DKP.

A toon will only be elligible to have DKP moved if it has accumulated 20+DKP.

The penalty as noted above is 50%.

So say you have a toon that you won't be raiding with any more that has 20 DKP on it. You want to move those to your main, your main will get +10DKP and the DKP on the toon you won't be playing any more will be zeroed.

My only question is, why the penalty at all?

In phishn00's situation, I dont see any harm in moving his dkp over without a penalty. Although, I would not make this a blanket policy for everyone. It seems he is in a special situation where he got screwed, and his other toon has some resources he could use. Seems like a special case.

Maybe I am missing something.

He already moved all of his DKP once from Invisus to Amadus. That's some history that isn't being mentioned.

So we've already given him the chance to move it all, this is another chance.

I didn't want to just do it because I'm sure he's not the only one that would like to move the points around.

That being said, its not conducive to the goals of the guild to let ppl switch their raiding characters constantly, we encourage people to work on one solid raiding character to contribute with and get help from the guild with.

However, we understand that some people will land in the spot where Phish and others are coming from.

We allowed players a no-penalty switch a few months ago and Phish took advantage of that.

/agree Horg. why add more complications. If he switched before while it was an option why bring it up? TF can use the wizzy's and he had earned those dkp...

The reason it is being brought up is because its currently against policy to move those points again. That was intended to be a one-time only move when the policy was changed from tracking by player to tracking by toon.

The reason that switch was made was mainly due to multi-boxers and ppl switching constantly from alt to alt.

There was a vote on it and it passed.

If interested in making a special case for Invisus, send me a PM and if there is a significant interest in making a special case for Invisus/Amadus/Saepe/Phlufhed/Phishn (all 5 have raided with us, Phishn being his third declared main) then we can possibly do that.
