Yes - there are still Guilds on Durotan, and we are having a great time of it.
WHO ARE WE?
Dojo is a progression guild with a bit of a relaxed attitude. We have organized raids three times per week (see below), with optional achievement runs planned on other evenings. We are relatively small and have historically been very selective about membership, trying to size the Guild so that all members can participate in the raids.
Despite our small size, limited time commitment and relatively laid-back approach, we have been successful in our progression. We do not worry about our World ranking - that is too hard core - but we endeavor to always be in the top 5 Guilds on our server in terms of progression. We were ranked 3rd on server for overall 25-man Lich King progression (12/12 ICC-R and 9/12 ICC-H).
For those of you hard-core raiders with family members (who may not be as hard-core as you), we are a family-friendly Guild. We have many couples in our Guild - sometimes all are active in Raids and sometimes only one, depending on the preference of the couple. We have automatic Guild admission for friends and family of Guild members in good standing, a separate class of members for alt-leveling and a separate class of members for those who want to be a vital part of our Guild but do not want to devote the time and effort necessary to participate in progression Raids.
We are a mature and stable Guild - the Guild has been in place since Vanilla, and the majority of Guild members have been with the Guild since BC or before. You must be at least 18 to apply, have stable internet and computer, be capable of completing your sentences (even if not grammatically) and not be a jerk (they instituted a "no-jerks" policy after I joined :)). Most of our raiders are in their 20s and 30s, but whatever your age there is likely someone older and younger than you in Guild.
We raid on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, from 8:45pm to 12:30am (Eastern time). To accommodate some of our guild member preferences for a late-night raid, we are in the process of adding a run from 10:45pm-2:00am on those same nights. Most of our members maintain an attendance rate of 80% or better, but there is no strict attendance requirement.
With Cataclysm, we have decided to expand - somewhat. Our goal is to be able to add 1-2 10-man raids in addition to our 25-man raid group. These different raid groups are expected to be competitive with each other (no "A", "B" and "C" distinctions), offering slightly different raiding times and personalities. Applicants will be considered for placement in any or all Raid groups - we will be distributing players among them in order to maximize everyone's success.
We are specifically looking to add tanks and healers as a priority - we are flexible as to the specific classes, since this is a growth objective (we do not have "holes" to fill). We are well-stocked with uber DPS and are not looking to add in that area (except through off-spec or alts), but if you are uber-uber, please apply and we will make room for you.
We emphasize bringing in quality members. Members are expected to be strong performers who spend time researching and improving their skills. But we also expect quality members to be quality people in terms of human dimensions. While we are demanding in terms of performance, we all try to help each other improve, and we all keep it in good temper. I make no promises about the quality of our humor, but it is reasonably family friendly.
HOW TO APPLY
