Roadrunners is a competitive, progression oriented, raiding guild playing Horde side on Kil'jaeden-US. Since our formation we have shot up progression on our high population server. As a general rule we value quality over quantity, holding a fairly small and tight raiding roster of 26-30 active raiders. The strongest point of Roadrunners, and what sets our team apart from the competition, is the guild atmosphere. Here you will find a group of people that has fun logging on to play and raid with one another. Team chemistry is paramount. We spend a lot of time playing this game while raiding and during offnights and we want Roadrunners to be an environment in which we enjoy spending that time. Consequently, we're seeking team oriented players who understand that it's often necessary to put Guild needs before the individual's.
We have a current and immediate need for a subset of the following:
1- Retribution Paladin
1- Shadow Priest
1- Random Ranged DPS
We will consider an exceptional tank or healer app however you must have a strong and viable PvE offspec (gear & skill both).
HOWEVER all exceptional applicants will be considered and are encouraged to apply. We take the player not the class. We remind applicants to be fairly patient during the recruitment process as we like to ensure that the player is worth giving a raid slot. A very small amount of our accepted applicants fail to pass through the trial process. Trials will be thrusted into raiding right away so come prepared

WHAT WE OFFER
> Serious progression in End Game WoW with the ability to raid less than other guilds with our 3 Nights and still progress further
> Enjoyable guild evironment that is capable of being successful minus the drama (no nerd raging)
> Fair loot system that uses a players wish list to help determine who the piece of gear would benefit most to go along with loot council and DKP
> The most progressed Alt + Pug ICC25 run on the server which is 8/12 HM for our raiders and friends
> Outside raids and BGs that we do for our enjoyment which includes Yogg-0 mount runs
> Above and beyond, you must be able to perform in situations where others are counting on you to do your job, while maintaining a positive attitude throughout an exhausting night of progression raiding.
> You must know your class inside and out, and showcase that knowledge via performance. We use tools such as Recount, WWS, and WoL, and we review the data we collect with those tools regularly to ensure that our successes are not a fluke.
> Your character must be optimized to reach its full potential! That means utilizing Top-tier gems, enchantments, consumables, or anything else that might give you an edge in a raiding environment!
> Having extensive raid experience is pretty much mandatory. Ideally we want experienced raiders who have seen the game inside and out, and who have experienced the scope of WoW raiding as its changed through the years.
> Experience being essential, so is raid-worthy gear. If you cannot step in and perform at our standards immediately, you cannot help us achieve our goals. Gear is an indicator of the commitment you have to being prepared and to playing your class to its fullest.
> You must be responsible enough to study encounters. With that said, come prepared for raids with whatever consumables and knowledge you'll need to enhance your performance. Ultimately you'll need a conceptual understanding of the mechanics behind raiding, as opposed to memorization of dance steps.
> You should be vocal! Don't hesitate to ask questions, and don't hesitate to give suggestions. We want active members who contribute to the community. You should never be afraid to tell us what's on your mind, or to share information you stumble upon.
> Members are expected to maintain high raid attendance. Do not apply if you can't commit to our schedule (Tuesday - Thursday 7:30-11:30PM PST).
Additional notes to ALL applicants:
> Think of your application as your resume for an important job. You wouldn't half ass your first impression in that situation and you shouldn't do so while applying to Roadrunners. Remember, in most cases we will spend as much time considering your application as you did writing it.
> If you have any questions you may either PM Sligg (Kliegs in game) or Marcks on the forums or toss any of them a whisper in game (outside of raid hours!) and they will be happy to assist you. Admittedly, we as a whole are big fans of Alts so if you don't see any of those guys online, there is a good chance they are hiding on an alt so feel free to message any guild member and you will be pointed in the right direction.
> Be sure to log out in the gear that you are applying with. It is frustrating trying to critique an applicant who is wearing off-spec or PvP gear at the time of applying. Don't be 'that guy'.
