[A] [Durotan] <Dojo> 25-Man Raid and PVP Guild - #1 on Server
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 organized PVP twice per week and other optional runs planned on other evenings. Our core raiding group is relatively small - we have always been selective about membership, trying to size the raiding and PVP parts of the Guild so that all members can participate in our planned activities.
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 are currently ranked as #2 (a soon to be corrected blip from our consistent #1 status until this week) on server for 25-man DS progression.
Guildox also lists us as the #1 PVP Guild on server. Guild members can choose to be PVP-only, Raid-only, or both.
We are also listed as #1 for Guild Achievements and #1 in terms of popularity. That last statistic is, I believe, the most meaningful - we have a good time playing WOW.
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 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 planned events.
We are a mature and stable Guild - the Guild has been in place since Vanilla, and many of the 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.
RAIDING AND PVP TIMES
We do 25-man progression raiding on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, from 8:45pm to Midnight or 12:30am. Organized PVP is Monday night (from 8:45pm to Midnight) and Saturday (4:30pm-7:00pm). All times are Eastern US time. Most of our members maintain an attendance rate of 80% or better, but there is no strict attendance requirement. We understand that you have a real life as well, and only ask that you give us notice of changes in your availability so that we can plan accordingly.
We are looking for a few uber DPS (preferably one with a good tanking off-spec) and healers (preferably Druid or Pally).
We are flexible as to the specific classes, since we prefer talent and ability over a specific spec or class (and some of our players have the ability to change class/spec to suit a new player). We are not currently recruiting for PVP-only players, but if you are really uber we will always be interested.
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.
