MISS HAVING A WOW FAMILY? Do you miss the social aspect of WoW? Having a family that will play all aspects of the game with you, yet still down mythic content? <Volition> can help! We are a medium semi-hardcore PVE horde guild on Emerald Dream (US) seeking new recruits! We are an extremely active, close group of friends seeking new raiders for some LEGION raiding! Our aim is to experience as much mythic high end content as we can, while in a positive & supportive group.
Semi Hardcore you say? Let us explain. We have the expectations of a more serious group (attendance policy/loot council/performance policy) with the social family atmosphere of a casual group. We try our best to balance the two most efficiently. Progression is our priority, but so are long-lasting friendships.
Outside of raiding, we enjoy PVE content (several mythic+ groups running, mythic dgs, achieve runs) and PVP (drunk wpvp, arenas). We welcome levelers and casual PVPers, as our focus is to provide a positive, family-style, very social environment for any aspect of the game. Although PVP is not our focus, we have plenty of players interested in both PVE/PVP. We get to know you and miss you when you're not on for a while. We play games outside of WoW together (Hearthstone & Overwatch), and are very active off game on our facebook group. We have an active telegram (IM) group as well. More general guild information is here.
We use a point system for attendance requirements.
Enchants, gems, flasks, pots are required.
Weakauras is required for progression, no exceptions.
WHAT WE OFFER
Progression. Although we like to have fun, we take progression seriously. After a wipe, we actually improve. We are quick to call strat changes and our members are humble enough to know there is always room for personal improvement.
Performance/Experience. Our officer team has several tiers of mythic raiding progression, and we have 3 tiers of experience as a guild. We strive to min max where we possibly can. Just as we expect performance from our members, we strive to be the best we can be as a group. We are only as strong as our weakest link, after all.
Stability. Although we are a relatively new guild (2 yr+), our core raiders have been raiding together for some time (years) & we're not going anywhere.
An enjoyable raid environment. During trash pulls, we do like to crack jokes and we're a fun bunch! We support and help one another, not lay blame.
A bunch of new friends! No cliques here. The second you join us you become part of the family. We like to hang out on TS outside of raid time, and we’re extremely active on our facebook off game.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Commitment/Reliability. We highly value both of these traits. Sporadic absence? Of course RL things can get in the way. If you have to miss, posting on the forums ASAP is a must. Our attendance system rewards those that let us know about absences early. We do have an attendance policy of 80% for core spots. This will be bumped up to 90% heroic+.
Skill. A good knowledge of your class is necessary. You must be wanting to better yourself in and out of the raid via looking at logs, simcraft/raidbots, class discord, theorycrafters, itemization, etc. We do have a minimum DPS/performance requirement, which changes as we progress.
Maturity. We are 18+ and drama free so act like it! ;) We all enjoy the jokes but RL says clear coms, you clear coms.
A sense of humor. You'll fit right in! This is part of what makes us a fun raiding environment!
