[Horde][Terenas]<Completely Different> A guild that aims to be... well, different.
And now for something <Completely Different>...
In life you will encounter certain situations where you need to learn to work with people who you don't necessarily like. This guild was formed under the principle that raiding doesn't need to be one of these situations. There seems to be this paradigm that in order to be a progression guild you have to give up the feeling that you are playing a game with a bunch of friends. This both false and silly. There is very little reason why the people who you surround yourself with to knockout the toughest content Blizzard can throw your way can't be the same people who you can enjoy endless hours of guild chat and Vent. banter with. Granted they make up a much smaller subset of the WoW population than either of those groups on their own but here at CD we think the extra wait will be worth it.
I've come to the EJ community since I feel that here we have the highest density of the type of players we are looking for. People who, like us, enjoy the process of figuring out a boss fight before there is a manual out on it, people who view gear as a means to an ends and not the ends itself, people who take pride in how well they play their character and not the net iLevel of their gear. Our playtime is less than most other progression guilds, as we lead the lives of grad students, engineers, and parents, but we are hoping that success in Ulduar will not come from who can put in the most hours fastest but from who can most successfully figure out the new content.
Below you will find the relevant info if you are still interested after that wall of text.
We are a brand new guild and this section will be updated frequently. Like any new thing it will take some time to mature and if you are looking for a quick way to get your purples, we are not for you. If you would like to be part of a focused progression guild from it's inception, we are for you. With the exception of 10 man Sarth. 3D I've completed every raid encounter in this game. We will be pushing progression and we will be making some noise. Our officers have set a goal to be ready to enter Ulduar running on all pistons. While difficult this will be achievable with the caliber of players we plan or recruiting and accepting to this guild.
The leadership of the guild is structured in a way that should be fairly familiar to most of you. There is a Guild Leader who works with a small officer core. The heart of the guild is made up of two ranks in addition to the applicant rank. The Raider rank is for those have the time and attitude to be the driving force behind our progression. The member rank is for those who have the right attitude but just not the time at this point and/or are friends of our raiders.
The founding vision of this guild was a progression guild made up of people who enjoy raiding with each other. With this vision we intended to form a guild with a longer shelf life than the top raiding guilds of Terenas are used to. We hope to take this guild through this expansion and beyond.
The following is a list of the classes and specs we are currently recruiting. We are always interested in adding high quality players to our roster. If your class is not listed but you feel that you are an exceptional fit to our guild please apply anyways. Do to the current nature of the game many raid roles overlap. This means that just because you see DK(dps) and Warrior(DPS) listed it doesn't mean we are looking for 2 players. In this case it is much more likely that we are looking for a single plate dps or a specific raid buff we are currently lacking. If you are a hybrid class and are able to play multiple specs well, it is a huge plus. With dual specs it will become very valuable to us to be able to have people switch when needed. This also prevents us from having to recruit more and sub mid raid.
If you are applying as a raider we expect you to meet the following requirements:
1. Must be able to maintain a 5/6 attendance ratio. We are looking for someone to integrate into our group, not someone to fill a raid spot every now and then.
2. You must have geared yourself to the best of your ability. We have no issue getting someone geared up to our level but we expect you to have made use of all gear sources available.
3. You must be a PvE focused player. We have some very active PvPers and we are proud of their achievements but this is first and foremost a PvE guild and that must be your priority.
4. You must have a computer and internet connection that allow you to function in a raiding environment.
5. You must have full knowledge of your class and exemplary knowledge of your spec.
6. A cursory knowledge of content we have cleared is a huge plus.
