DEATH KNIGHT: 1 - Primarily recruiting for dps, tanking gear and experience a plus
DRUID: 1 Boomkin and/or 1 Feral - Resto set and experience a plus, but you'll be playing full time DPS
PALADIN: 1 Holy
PRIEST: 1 Holy and/or Shadow - Looking for somebody that can both dps and heal, it's ok if you're expertise lies more in one over the other
SHAMAN: 1 Resto and/or Ele - Should be equally capable of playing both restoration or elemental
* All dps classes should be both knowledgeable and capable of playing any raiding viable spec their class offers.
We are looking for experienced players that can help us progress through Ulduar hard modes, we are not interested in any projects or players that we have to worry about or guide. If you're not confident in your playing ability then don't bother applying. Applicants should have raiding experience dating back to at least the previous expansion, preferably some pre-3.0 Sunwell. Keep in mind you will be playing with, and in some cases, replacing players that have Kil'Jaeden pre-nerf experience, H:GotR completed, and Ulduar experience including killing Yogg.
What gear do I need?
Gear, while easily obtainable, is dependent on where you are. If you are a cross server applicant you should have at least a full set of Naxx gear. If you are a Kilrogg applicant then gear is less of an issue, but you should show that you have done as much as possible with the raiding that is available to you. Also you should have the endorsement of a couple raiding members of the guild as an exceptional player.
Temporary Insanity is a guild that has existed since the alpha versions of the game. Our raiding started in Molten Core and several of those original members still play today. We play on one of the top PVE servers that has many competitive raiding guilds, both Horde and Alliance side. Since we've started raiding we've maintained our status as the top Horde guild on the server. We have a history of defeating bosses before they're "nerfed", including but not limited to Kil'jaeden before 3.0 was released. Outside of raiding many of our members are active in all other aspects of the game including achievements, pvp, leveling, and various raids. You will find that the players in TI are both mature and respectful, and we make sure that our raiders not only play well together but also get along. We also have a stimulating guild chat that attracts all types of interesting and fun conversations, but when it's time to raid we focus on doing what we're supposed to do: Kick ass!
On Feb 9th we completed Glory of the Raider, and on Feb 17th we completed Heroic Glory of the Raider. We Killed 25-man Yogg April 27th and are currently working on hard mode achievements. In general you will find that we do place a lot of importance on raiding achievements. We are not one of those guilds who will farm bosses on "easy mode" for weeks on end before attempting their "hard mode" version. When we strive to be the best, we do it in every aspect of raiding.
Our purpose and what we offer:
We are here to bring together top quality players to aggressively push content. We enjoy likeminded people who are not only talented but in it for the benefit of their teammates to obtain the highest level of gear and have fun while doing it. We do not tolerate poor play or the inability to take suggestions to improve your play and will sometimes trim the players that do not fit that mold from our roster. We separate ourselves from most other hardcore raiding guilds in that we do not raid more than roughly 20 hours a week. This means that the quality of our players is especially important as we do not have interest in compensating for poor play by putting in more hours.
Our loot system:
We use a dkp system first and a loot council second. With dkp you earn points for every boss killed and may spend a set amount of points on items. If you have negative points you are not allowed to bid points on an item. If everyone passes on the item, then the item costs 0 points and anyone wanting it speaks up and the winner is decided through loot council. Good items never rot under this system, and it is possible to gear up a 2nd or in some cases 3rd set of gear.
Our raid times:
We raid Monday through Thursday 7-11pst and Sunday 6-11pst (Pacific Standard Time). If all of our raiding is done before that point we have days off, but on progression weeks you should expect to be there each of those nights. We expect 90-100% attendance from our raiders. Any temporary or permanent changes in your schedule that would prevent you from making our raid times should be noted in your application.
Who do I talk to?
You'll primarily want to talk to Gilora, Kainteeka, Might, Chowbox, Taurenzilla, or Mothuzadan. Any class officer directed from a guildmate can also easily assist you. You can also contact these people on our forums about the progress of your application at any time.
Ok how do I apply?
First you need to create a forum account at tiguild.com and activate it if necessary. Next you need to log into that account, go the "apply" section on the front page, and follow the directions.
Any special notes on applying?
Not having either a WWS or WoW Meter Online report will greatly decrease your chances of getting an interview with our recruitment team. If you can't provide one when you submit your app but you plan on having access to it in the near future, please be sure to specify that. Keep in mind that even if your guild does not run one of these programs, you can set up your own for free, so please make the effort to do so.
Our website is back up and running, so go ahead and check out tiguild.com if you were looking to app for the past few days. Also, we are now recruiting several new spots in addition to the Warlock(s) and Balance Druid; 1 Holy/Shadow Priest 1-2 Hunters, 1-2 Mages, 1 Resto/Elemental Shaman, 1 Rogue, and 1 DK (dps).
