Raid Helper

The Raid Helper bot is used to create signup sheets for events!
Signup sheets can be useful to determine jobs people will play, list people in signup priority, show event times in people’s local time, and generally gauge who will attend the event.
Events that typically use signup sheets include latest expansion learning parties, latest expansion mount farming sessions, and special contests and events.
Ask an officer to add you as an Event Host in Discord. You can then use the Raid Helper bot to create a sign-up sheet.
See Event Hosting for information about hosting an FC event.
See Signup Participation for information about event etiquette, signup options and participant priority.
