Band of the Red Hand
A warrior king forgotten for two years rises to rekindle the flames in a world torn asunder.

Banding together with like minded individuals, he forms the Band of the Red Hand to reclaim the peace that once was.

Welcome, friends, to the Band.

As of Aug. 26, Band of the Red Hand as it stood under Ivanhoe's leadership is officially disbanded. Thanks everyone for trying to make it work. Unfortunately, I was unable to devote the time myself to keep the guild afloat and viable. And that wasn't fair to the members, so in the best interest of everyone we are now merged with The Kindred.

Check out the new guild's Web site at And if you haven't moved over yet, shoot anyone in the guild a message and ask them to invite you. Everyone has invite privileges in the kindred. With 160 in just less than a month, the guild is growing quickly with both low end and high end players.

I'll continue using this site for former Band members and offer it to keep people posted on happenings.

Thanks again!

Less than 40 to go

Ivanhoe19, Aug 23, 07 9:07 AM.

Most of the Band have moved over the Kindred. There remain somewhere in the neighborhood of 35 or so left in the guild. Many of those have not logged in for several days.

I will probably be disbanding this weekend and sending those who I've not seen online a mail in-game letting them know what's happened to give them an opportunity to join the kindred also.

I originally had intended to keep this site active, but looking at the registered members and log-ons, there are only about 3-5 people regularly checking it out, so I think we'll just start using the kindred's Web site at:

So register on the forums there if you need to. In addition to posting on the forums, there's an option that allows us to send private messages to one another if need be.

I will post at least once more on here after I've disbanded the guild.

I apologize for my lack of posting over the past week. I'd like to offer a great excuse, but the truth is I've just been slack about it.

So let's crank things up with an update on Patch 2.2. I found this online, posted by the good folks at MMORPG. Here's some of the features that have gone live on the test realms.
    • Voice Chat: The new Voice Chat feature is now available in game. Players will need to go into the options menu under Sound and Voice to activate it. Volume sliders are available for the microphone, speakers, and game-audio fade (which automatically lowers the game audio when a voice communication is received), as is a "push-to-talk" setting. Right-clicking on a player's name now includes the option to mute or unmute that player. Muting another player blocks all voice chat from him or her; the ignore feature now blocks both voice chat and text chat from that player.
    • Chat Channels: New Chat Channel controls and functionality are now available under the chat tab in the Social Window of the interface. The interface will now show the channels players are in or are available, depending on the area of the world they are in, along with new private channel controls.
    • A new feature for reporting players as being AFK in battlegrounds by right clicking has been added. When enough reports are registered, a 30 second debuff will begin to count down. Once the timer is up a new debuff will appear that will prevent the player from gaining any honor while it is on. This debuff can be negated as soon as the player engages in combat.
The rumor is the guild banking system also will be included in it, but I haven't read any recent updates on that.

It's time to accomplish the Band's Objective and take down ma-ha-rashi Van Cleef. Meet up time is 6 p.m. servertime at Sentinal Hill in Westfall on Monday, Aug. 13. Loot rules: GREED all items unless it's an item you will actually be Using (that does not mean disenchanting). Remember, the better geared your Bandmates are, the more it helps the Band as a whole.

Also, when you're online, encourage people to visit the Web site. And let them know about the Van Cleef raid.

Various news on raiding, objectives and an alliance

Ivanhoe19, Aug 2, 07 8:23 AM.

On Wednesday, Aug. 1, we as a Band made our first raid together bringing 10 people into Blackfathom Depths and, generally, did a bang-up job in there. Kudos to Demonhunterx and Landros for putting that together. It was a lot of fun.

They are attempting to schedule another one for someplace different and are requesting suggestions in our forums section. One option is a battleground, however, those will be limited based on level. So, for instance, Ivanhoe at level 23 would not be able to enter a battleground with Demonhunterx who is level 37 (probably 38 by the time he reads this).

Also, unless something has changed in the game, everyone should be aware that dungeons in the higher levels do not allow more than five people to enter them unless they're specifically designed for raiding. I know, for instance, scholomance and stratholme are limited to five people. However, I'm not sure when the dungeon limitations begin.

We are now allied with a guild called The Kindred. That means you can request any of their members to help in groups if they're online, and they can do the same with us.

To assist with direction, I have created a new topic in the information section called "The Band's Objective". The objective will change as we progress as a guild, and I'm doing it as a role-playing event with a storyline that will progress based upon how well we work toward or accomplish the objective. Read it in our information section and it'll be more clear, I hope, what it's all about.

Hail the Band!
