The Oran'Thul Breakdown


While The Oran'Thul has been an active guild for over 15 years, we began using the name about 7 years ago.

We have a proven track record of being world best and server best on multiple MMOs. 



Guild Hierarchy


The Oran'Thul has a clear cut hierarchy, however, each role also holds the responsibilities of the role below them. For instance: The Guild Leader is expected to also assist with High Officer role requirements.


Guild Leader

The Guild Leader is responsible for executing our plans. While he provides important input on the guild's movement, he does not provide the only input. He relies heavily on the support of both High Officers and Officers


High Officer

High Officers are responsible for managing the day to day requirements of the guild. Including, but not limited to, guild website moderation, guild social media management, guild community management, guild bank management, and loot council.

Veteran members have shown the dedication that The Oran'Thul looks for within its members. They have been active through the good times(MMOs) and bad times(co-op games). They are regularly active in Discord and are always looking for the next game to play with guildies. Hardcore & Member rankings can also have the Veteran rank(Veteran Hardcore or Veteran Member).



Our main force is composed of our most hardcore members, as such we have a rank rightfully named "Hardcore". This rank has priority slots in player number limited content such as WoW raids. They are expected to attend all scheduled content and deliver the utmost dedication to their performance within the MMO. This rank is adjusted on a game by game basis and the available role slots are capped at the largest raid's size. For instance, in Classic WoW the largest raids are 40 man thus the Hardcore ranking caps at 40 members. If a Hardcore member fails to show the qualities necessary for the rank(consistent failure to attend scheduled raids), they may be demoted and replaced with a Reserve member.



Reserve members are members who are striving for the Hardcore rank. As the Hardcore rank has a limited number of slots in high demand we may have more members striving for it than we can facilitate. Reserve members show the exact same qualities that Hardcore members must show including attending all scheduled events in the case of player slots becoming available. Reserve members receive 2nd priority on slots after Hardcore members.



The Members of The Oran'Thul make up the bulk of the guild. They have shown that they know greatness when they see it and applied to The Oran'Thul. These players have been handpicked from the bushels at birth to begin their training to be the strongest the gaming world has to offer. Years of rigorous battles have honed their skills to perfection. They dedicate their lives to The Oran'Thul and this guild thrives because of it.




Raiding is one of the biggest drives for MMO players. In some games(WoW) there are limited slots in each raid. In these cases The Oran'Thul prioritizes Hardcore members to fill these slots to ensure the best performance in raids.


Once content is on farm we will substitute Hardcore members for standard Members so they have the opportunity to obtain gear and clear content that they would have been otherwise unable to experience.


All guild group content including both raids and pvp require the use of Discord.


Loot Distribution


The Oran'Thul functions as an extremely tight-knit group, as such we believe that those who contribute most should benefit most.


How does this translate to loot in games?


A loot council system is the primary method of loot allocation in most games, especially WoW. This means that a group of officers who know the IN GAME contributions of members well, vote to decide who should receive each piece of loot. This not only ensures a fair distribution of loot, it also allows for the best progression as each piece of gear is thoughtfully distributed to allow for the best growth of the guild. The aforementioned Hardcore ranking would receive priority on loot.



The Classic WoW Drive


As many of you have already heard, Classic WoW is returning and as such The Oran'Thul has been hard at work honing our skills, refreshing 14 year old memories and creating content for you guys!


A fair amount of us have been enjoying the pleasures of a WoW private server in order to do this. This is something that we will be continuing to do throughout the year with a new session(starting fresh) beginning in a few months. All Oran'Thul members will be welcomed to join us when the time comes, be sure to stay active on the website & Discord for the future announcement.


The video content we have been working on in being posted to You can expect to see a few videos a week for the next couple of months.


The Fill-in Games


The Oran'Thul has been actively playing large scale multi-player and coop games on Steam. Recently we took a run through Conan Exiles & are now enjoying some time in ARK: Survival Evolved.


We are planning another run through Conan Exiles in June or July and will most likely be hosting our own server again. This server would be open to both Oran'Thul and the public for some awesome PvP. Details will be posted after we officially announce the start date. Stay tuned! 


Suggest Something


We are always looking for something that can include a large number of players so we can kill some time while we wait for Classic WoW. If you have any games that you would like to suggest, please feel free to hop onto the forums and/or Discord to share your ideas!


A New Website!


As you can obviously already see...THE ORAN'THUL HAS A NEW WEBSITE!

As the website is brand new we will be making a fair amount of changes over the next few months.

If you have any suggestions or changes you would like to see, please head on over to the Suggestions section of the forums to make your voice heard!

Now, onto the more important stuff.




As this is a new website an application must be submitted for all members currently in the guild as well as prospective applicants.

Most of the content on the website is accessible only to members, so make sure you get that application in ASAP! 

Previous guild members MUST throw in a new application in order to be considered a guild member going forward.

Be sure to check out the other news posts for updates on guild activities.

We are extremely excited to begin using this new website and thank everyone who chooses to be an active member on it! 


Amazing things are on the horizon! Be sure to read the additional news posts! 


The Oran'Thul functions primarily as a dedicated, goal-oriented group of hardcore gamers.

We, The Oran'Thul, despite having firm roots in the world of hardcore gaming, will not exclude active, casual players from joining our ranks, so do not fret; we believe that even the most passive of players have their merits - as long as they are around to demonstrate them.

Our members will know family; our foes will know fury; those who betray will know regret. Becoming a member of The Oran'Thul means that you represent us in the world of gaming - that is, each individual member forms our face, collectively, as we make our mark upon the gaming world.

If you strive to be the best you can be, and know what it means to put the organization first, then perhaps this is the place for you.
