A few months ago, during a Family meeting, I asked for more ESO events. Fog's answer, “if you want more events, lead them, anyone rank Lorgair and above can lead an event”. This came as a surprise to me but I took his words to heart and set about scheduling and leading events that I felt would interest ESO players (and me). Since then I've held events ranging from Fishing Excursions to Cyrodiil Skyshard hunts.
By far the most successful events have been “For the Undaunted”. For a few weeks I ran this event every day at 7AM. After a short time this event took on a life of it's own. Other participants, tired of waiting around for their turn (and with some prompting from Pops) began running their own groups concurrently. Soon other Event Leaders emerged and I turned over M-F runs to Papo (he has since turned over some of these to Tigallo). We went from 2-3 Dungeon runs to 10-13 every morning. Another effect of these Undaunted runs is we have a fairly close European Prime/Eastern Morning in-game community.
Now to be clear I did not do this by myself. I am very grateful to be accepted by the ESO community as leader, and to those who have stepped up to lead other events. My whole purpose in posting this is to say, IF I CAN DO THIS, ANYONE CAN. I hope to inspire and encourage others to take the plunge.
Your first golden opportunity is to take over the Undaunted event for Saturday and Sunday, I will be stepping down from these. There is also a need for Undaunted runs during Western Prime time.
Here is what I learned:
1-If you build it, they will come, post an event on the calender and you will be surprised by how many folks will attend.
2-If you want more events, lead them, want to clear Craglorn-set up an event.
3-Be fearless, this is my first MMO, had no idea I could lead an event...surprise.
4-Lead the type of events you are interested in, chances are other are also interested.
5-Stretch your comfort zone, I still do not have the tactical experience to lead AvA events but I have no problem leading other events in the AvA zone.
If other event leaders have sage advise for beginning leaders please add to this post.
TL/DR: get off the sidelines and lead an event, you will be encouraged by the Family's support, and may be surprised by how enjoyable it is to provide service to others.
