Kill stealing bosses is allowed. If one faction has 2 raids, both are allowed to hit the boss.

All raids must be opened at all times, except:
- When a raid member disconnects from game or needs to relog, in which case the raid can be closed for 1 minute to allow them to rejoin.

Raid loot mode must be adjusted depending on the situation, as follows:
- PvP and boss raids must be on team order loot.

- Private farming raids can be on any loot mode, however, if the raid moves on to a boss then the raid must be opened and set on team order.

- The raid member is not in the designated boss or PvP area for longer than 3 minutes after warning by leader.

Decently equipped implies the player must be wearing at least Worship, has enchanted their armor to , has rerolled their armor for HP orange stats for a cumulative total of at least +500 HP, and has Worship accessories.
- The player, knowingly of the opposite faction, joins a boss raid for looting purposes.
