Mission: The purpose of Ascending is to train, screen and evaluate players for admittance into Clan THAC0. Ascending will focus on building leadership, teamwork and tactics in new-to-mid-level players (levels 1-49).
Privileges: As players progress through the ranks, they will gain privileges commensurate to their rank in the game and in the guild at large. Basic in-game privileges include bread/potions. Those loyal to the guild can expect equipment and other items. All members will gain access to the private forums and teamspeak server at an appropriate level.
General Grade Officers:
Leader (1): Guild CO. Reports directly to the General Officers and Leader of THAC0.

-Secretary: manages rank structure (promotions/demotions), updates on forums as to who is what, and who is mentoring who. Will work with the treasurer to ensure dues are paid and items paid out.
-Treasurer: Will collect dues from members and will distribute items to players.
Company Grade Officers:
Governor (3) - One will manage each 'Group' and oversee general order and will organize dungeon runs, etc.
Mentor - will offer specialized mentoring to players of a particular class. Anyone above this level is automatically a 'Mentor'. The size of this rank will fluctuate depending on the needs of the guild and the classes that are recruited. For example, if the Secretary is an enu and there are only 2 enus in the guild at Group 2 level, the secretary will be considered their mentor.

-Apprentice: Those in this rank will begin learning more advanced guild leadership and will be expected to spend time in lower level areas aiding new players.

They are the first stop for basic working knowledge of the guild. Members of this rank are eligible to go hunting with the main guild.
Group 2: Focus- teamwork. To promote: 15,000 xp & 3 months in guild.
-Scout: Will 'Scout' for appropriate mobs for their group. The goal is to develop an extensive knowledge of monsters and the world of Dofus.

They may serve up to 2 consecutive tours of duty in these positions for a total of 6 months before rotating back to the main guild.

Our Parent Guild: Clan THACO
The Clan THAC0 forums are up and running. Follow the link below. After December 31st, the membership to the clan forums will require an Invitation Code. Current guild members are encouraged to register with the forums before this point. The Invitation Code will be changed periodically, and published in the forums so that any guild member may supply the code when they invite a new member into the guild.
Our Guild owns a private members-only Teamspeak voice-chat server. All guild members who have reached the rank of Reservist, or above can be granted access to the TeamSpeak server. Instructions for connecting to TeamSpeak are posted on the Clan News forum, which is accessible only to members who are registerd with the Forums.
Our guild also has a Google Group for communication outside of Dofus, and it is open to all guild members. The group is setup as a "private group", so you have to be emailed an invitation to join the group. To request an invite PM either EbenOrion, or Raque-Whiterook with your email address, and they will send you the invite.
