As most folk know, we have been raiding as a coalition with Dragon Muffins for ages now. It has been by far the most successful of many coaltions over the 7 1/2 years of Feral Instinct. Dragon Muffins is also a very old guild (itself a merger of Dragon Knights and Dire Muffins).
The coalition has been so successful because, in my opinion, the people are nice and its based on trust. We don't use DKP. We don't have complicated priority systems. We go to have fun as well as to achieve progress.
Looking forward to Mists it would be great to be able to share the levelling and 5 man content with them too. Unfortunately, Blizzard has not yet provided a mechanic to in some way "link" guilds and the shared chat channel is a poor substitute. Both myself and Nuroog, GM of Dragon Muffins, are open to consideration of a guild merger.
The timing is key; if we do it now, then we will soon recoup guild reputation (which is wiped on leaving a guild) whilst levelling in Mists.
We are not going to form a new guild for raiders only (as happened once before with Dark Venom). The options are:
1. Merge Feral Instinct into a [renamed] Dragon Muffins. All FI members would be encouraged, but not forced to move. FI would not be disbanded for those members (or alts) who wished to stay. Buxton would become GM of FI again.
2. Merge Dragon Muffins into a [renamed] Feral Instinct. All DM members would be encouraged, but not forced to move. DM would not be disbanded for those members (or alts) who wished to stay. Corbetti would remain GM and we would have a reshuffle of officers to make sure everyone is fairly represented.
3. Leave things as they are.
Please feel free to read the discussions over at the Dragon Muffins forum
and leave feedback either there (requires registration) or here; or else mail Corbetti in-game.
The guild officers will be having a discussion tomorrow (Tuesday) evening on teamspeak - so if you want your opinion represented at that point, please act swiftly!

Blizzard giving freeebies away
These little fellas made me laugh so much last night... I could barely concentrate.
The panic they caused me whenever Healga shouted "Sapper!"
Maku's reactions were awesome - lightning in fact! I had barely targeted the little bugger / mashing Fok before he had them Death Gripped and in Chains of Ice leaving me and Azb scratching our nuts wondering where he'd gone
Best bit of DS Ive seen so far
