Oct 19 ER Roleplay Guild Listing - 10/19/2016 The Earthen Ring RP Guild List was maintained many years by Shaw/Sullivan and later Gospel/Sinsolaria. With permission, I've started the thread anew to keep our server forums updated. The format (with a few adjustments) from the previous thread is used in this version to keep consistency. Credit for format is not my own. Post your guild info if you wish to be part of this list! Danke. __________________________________________ THE FORMAT Please format your post as follows: Guild Name GM Short Description Recruiting: Open / Closed / Application Only RP Experience: Novice / Veteran / All RP Immersion: Complete / Voluntary / Casual Contact/PR: Name 1, Name 2, Name 3 __________________________________________ Explanations of the above: Guild Name, GM, and Short Description are pretty self-explanatory. Tip: Try to keep the description short. If people are interested by your blurb, then they can continue on to your website or recruitment thread! Recruiting is the recruitment style of your guild. Open means that you grab people up on the spot and are always looking for new people. Closed means that you're not actively seeking new members, but will snatch up a brilliant star if you happen across one. Application Only means that candidates can ONLY join your guild via an application process. RP Experience is what kind of roleplayers you are generally looking for. Novice means you'll accept the greenest greenhorn, Veteran means you prefer experience, and All means you welcome folks from all levels of experience. RP Immersion is how "into" RP your guild is. Complete means you RP whenever you're in the game - your guildchat, your parties, your say/emotes are all in-character all the time. Voluntary means people RP when and where they want to, but are more often In-Character than not. Casual means you occasionally RP, but are equal parts out-of-character and in-character. Contact/PR are your go-to guildies for recruits to contact when/if they decide to join your guild. Your Guild Website address is also pretty self-explanatory. You can also include any recruitment or info thread you posted on the ER forums. (Definitely recommended so you can keep all your resources in one spot!) If there are any additions/adjustments you'd like to make to the format, please do so, but remember to keep your writing brief to make it easier for our newcomers to browse!Arialynn50 Oct 19

3d [H] Exodus is LFM! N/H Guild. Groups welcome! Hello All! TL:DR; LF Casual Guildies, Mythic + members, Raiders. Normal/Heroic Guild (not doing Mythic- we took a step back from the heavy grind - lots of part time members with kids, hectic schedules so a great flexible place to be!) Raiders: All welcome! Low in rogues, warriors, hunters, shadow priests Mythic +: Anyone interested! Community: Also anyone that would love a helpful home! We can absorb another guild - invite groups of peeps - or maybe you want to raid from your guild and just join us during raid days! You name it we need 15 peeps! Go time! Great home for casuals, groups of friends, those looking for a relaxing fun home or need a flexible group in case they need a night off! Info: Exodus-EarthenRing (7/7H, 3/3N) has many members of our guild that have played since Vanilla together and traveled across Azeroth in varying guilds and competitive levels. The GM, myself, and a few others decided at the end of Mists with Flex Raiding becoming available in 2 difficulties that we want to take a step back and play with our GM’s Dad again! With so much family/friends lost and split over the years, bringing all of us back to one spot has been amazing! We’ve even picked up 3-4 different groups in the same position and allowed them to play with their family/friends again without the worries of being cut! We came back to our home guild, Exodus, in 2013 and have created a casual/flexible team that sponsors coaching above cutting raid members, flexible schedule allowing for nights off no consequences, and we even have guild events and giveaways! Our most recent was FunkoPop Illidan’s for the release of Legion! Raid times are as follows: Wednesday 8:30-11:30pm EST Thursday 8:30-11:30pm EST Monday 8:30-11:30pm EST Note: 8:30-9:00 invites, 1st pull at 9:00 Would like to add scheduled Mythic + days Look forward to hearing from you! :+: Smushez :+: Smushiz#1660 {Recruitment Manager} - (check email throughout the day) GM: Spahfee Officers: Smushez, EvertaiSmushez3 3d
4d The Leveling Game As Legion is roughly a year away, I decided to put some time into a class I've never played much in the past. I've done the grind many times and it's always the same, so this time, I decided to live a little more and level the proper way like days of old. The rules are simple. - You must stay in character. - You cannot use heirloom gear. - You cannot mount until level 20, and you must use your racial mount. (IE, Humans only use horses) - You cannot send money from your main to your new character, they must make all of their money on their own. - You cannot send gear from your main to your alts. If you need special gear, you must buy it from the auction house with gold you made, craft it with your own profession, or find someone who can craft it for you in-game. - You cannot utilize the guild bank in any fashion. - You cannot use or sell loot obtained by Blingtron. - You cannot spam dungeons. You can use the group finder when you have dungeon quests but once you're done in there, you're done with the dungeon. - You cannot spam battlegrounds. Hard mode rules. You can choose if you'd like to play by any of these rules, but they are not mandatory. - No deaths outside of instances or PvP. If you die, you must re-roll the character. - You can only use vendor bought gear. - No mounts. This is based on the honor system, so don't cheat yourself. Remember, the goal is not to reach 100 as fast as you can, but to roleplay, meet new people, and enjoy the leveling experience. Take your time, it's not a race. If you choose to participate, post your new characters name, race, class, and professions, and let's kick this thing off right! Feel free to continuously post updates on your characters progression as well so we can keep up on what's going on. Please feel free to join our channel Ironforged (/join Ironforged) so we can keep up with each other in-game as well.

Many of us work full-time (average age is mid-30's) and can no longer commit to hardcore raiding progression due to out-of-game responsibilities. However, that doesn't stop us from having fun and clearing content when we are together! Even though we are on an RP server, we unfortunately do not participate in RP activities. Raid Information: Time: Sundays at 2:00 EST Current Progress: 2/7 Heroic EN, 2/3 Normal ToV Recruiting Information: Raid positions are filled based on role needs and performance. Exceptional individuals will always be considered.

Nov 24 Selling full Heroic EN clears and Xavius only Hey guys, Epitaph of Twilight is selling full clears (7/7) of heroic emerald nightmare as well as Xavius only for ahead of the curve achievement. Loot will be set to personal and you would likely receive additional gear traded to you from other players in the guild who do not need the vast majority of the gear within heroic EN. You can expect to clear all 7 bosses very quick, maybe an hour or so depending on the core raiders who come. Although you should not expect to see a wipe it is possible on rare occasions. We have tons of fun and are all friends so expect a welcoming environment. Please note that if you wish to join us in voice chat that conversations are not always youth-friendly. Also note that because the fights go quite fast and are very different from a progression raiding pace, these runs are likely not the best environment to learn the ins-and-outs of each boss. For details and gold costs please contact any of the in game characters listed below in PMs or in-game mail: Clakey Mithrändir Sêv Bromy Tactfulorb Lore or if these individuals are not online and you prefer immediate communication rather than using the in-game mail, simply ask any online member if an officer is around and someone will aid you. If you are interested and reach out to someone other than myself, please mention you heard about it from Clakey or Madvillain. either is fine. Please note the in-game contact will be required as I personally do not access the Earthen Ring forums frequently. I hope this is reasonable. Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you.Clakey2 Nov 24

Nov 16 [A/H RP] <Templars of the Rose> Update 10/28/2016: Recruitment is open after a brief break! We're back from our application load from the summer/start of Legion. For information on how to join, see: ---- Greetings, Earthen Ring! Templars of the Rose and its Hordeside counterpart, Blood of the Rose is a multi-faction, multi-game roleplay guild that combines world roleplay, storylines, events, PvP, and raiding to create an immersed and fun game experience. The guild was founded on October 3rd, 2007 on Earthen Ring-US and continues in WoW and other games today. Out-of-Character: About Us Our guild is a close-knit circle of folks from all walks of life. Ages range from 19 - 60+ and roleplay/gaming experience ranges from beginner to veteran. We take all roleplay experience types and our main recruitment caveat is this: No-fun OOC drama out, fun IC drama in. We'll take mature roleplay novices over dramatic roleplay veterans and not think twice about it! We're also more than happy to teach new roleplayers the ropes. In-Character: Roleplay We're known for a variety of roleplay, ranging from campaigns that use world PvP and LFR on a mass scale, smaller character-driven storylines, and light-hearted recurring events such as the Harbor Market. Up till Mists of Pandaria, Templars of the Rose was neutral toward the Horde-Alliance war, preferring to rally against world-ending causes such as the Burning Legion, Scourge, Deathwing, and other global threats. However, with the rise of Garrosh Hellscream and destruction of Theramore, the Templars declared war to oust him as warchief. Since the younger Hellscream's fall, the Rose has again distanced itself from Alliance and Horde skirmishes and found a new home in the Howling Fjord, Northrend. It now rises to battle against the Burning Legion's tide in the Broken Isles. The Templars are battle-hardened warriors and specialize in front line wars. Also neutral, its sister-side Horde guild, Blood of the Rose found itself at odds with Garrosh Hellscream's aggressive anti-Alliance stances. The order was forced into hiding to avoid Hellscream's Kor'kron agents rooting out dissent, but many of its members were hunted down during Hellscream's regime. The survivors aligned themselves with the Darkspear Rebellion led by Vol'jin to oust Hellscream. Still, many fell. Following this dark time, the Bloods have been rising from war's ashes and laying the foundation of a renewed order. Bonds have been rekindled with its Allianceside sister order and the Bloods also rise to combat the Legion. PvE/PvP We also raid weekly Allianceside with a dedicated in-house team of raiding roleplayers we put together and trained back in Cataclysm. We're open to new roleplay-raiders as long as they meet our baseline iLevel and DPS/healing standards. We incorporate raiding into the overarching guild storyline. There is also a dedicated core group of roleplayers who enjoy PvP and incorporate it into their characters, including those who run Arenas or RBG groups. Outside Warcraft Outside of Warcraft, members also play other games together, namely Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Final Fantasy 14. We also host a private Minecraft and Starbound server for the guild and are obsessed with Overwatch. Currently, we're dabbling in Pathfinder and Neverwinter campaigns on the side. Website For more information about us and our multi-game community, I invite you to our website, The Rose Gaming Network (TRGN). Recruitment is also application based, so you will need to make a TRGN account and apply at: / To see us in action in our former home of Theramore, check our Merlynne's Goodbye Theramore video that captured many of the antics that took place there over the years: Contact If you're interested in joining us, toss a whisper to any online member or reply to this thread. Templars of the Rose Arialynn, Koryander, Jarrick, Sielic Blood of the Rose Saratega, Sinual, Akhania, Maelstrome WoW Insider Featured Articles Our guild was featured in WoW Insider's 15 Minutes of Fame in 2010, 2012, and 2013: Podcast Two members, namely myself and Kanta, also host a WoW Lore and RP-centric podcast called Lorecast. We invite roleplayers to listen as a resource, source of fun host banter, and general fun. Check us out at: Nov 16

Nov 15 Earthen Ring Discord - Trade/RP/Advertise Greetings fellow Earthen Ring-ers! For some time the idea has been thrown around across multiple community sites to start Discord servers, some with the intent on using it for Roleplay, others for finding guilds and groups or trading. After seeing that no one really had time to moderate and manage the upkeep of such a server, I have decided to as I already manage another two servers. The Earthen Ring Discord (or ERD) is broken up into multiple rooms that anyone may access, so long as they follow the handful of common sense rules. Currently looking for another one or two people to help out as moderators! Bellow is what is on offer: EARTHEN RING DISCORD INSTANT INVITE - Tavern-Alliance & Tavern-Horde (IC) This is the first (with possibly more to come if requested) channel dedicated to Roleplaying. IT is a simple tavern RP but as I said, I am more than happy to expend on the rooms to offer people numerous places to RP. Not everyone has time to sit on Warcraft, or perhaps they just don't want to be in game but still wish to interact with their friends, personally I have spent a great deal of time Roleplaying in Discord and it is wonderful! - Old Town (OOC) Think of Trade Chat, except with fewer [Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker] spams! A general chat channel that allows everyone to OOCly talk, discuss whatever they feel like, and connect with players even if they are not standing around outside the city auction house. - Marketplace (OOC) Here is where you can make 'Looking For Work' and 'Looking to Buy' posts, advertise item sales or trades. If you want to get your hands on an item, or perhaps make some gold, then this is where you will want to do it. There are a handful or rules for the Marketplace to ensure it stays welcoming and tidy such as no spamming (don't post the same thing within 5min of your last post), no 'capsing' and no gold/account/leveling selling. For more info please read the rules channel. - Town Hall (OOC) Finding other players for dungeons, raids, PvP and adventuring can be tricky, even with the in-game Finder listing options. In this channel you can promote your adventures or quests, ask for tanks & healers (hell, maybe even a DPS) for your mythic/challenge mode/raids etc. - Guild Office (OOC) This channel is for guild masters and officers to place adverts for their guilds, both RP orientated and PvE/PvP orientated. Because all messages to the channel are saved and can be scrolled through at any point, we ask you only re-post your guild advert once every few days as to avoid spam. There is a unique server role available for people who represent their guilds (such as Guild Masters or Officers) that makes it easier for community members to single you out so they can find you and your guild - ask admin for more info!Khadromars2 Nov 15

Nov 12 [A] <The Royal Lions Brigade> Heavy Roleplay The Royal Lions Brigade Who are we? The Brigade is a multi-departmental military organisation that works within the Alliance to help protect the King's realm and the people who live in it. The Brigade works on two fronts, inner city and the outer world. Within the city of Stormwind, the Brigade manages the bulk of the Stormwind Guard and the protection of the citizens in the city, this department is headed by the Captain of the Guard. The Captain oversees the management and maintenance of the Stormwind Law Book as well as briefing the Brigade Council on inner city matters. In the outer world, the Brigade is active in several aspects... The Armed Forces makes up the military might of our guild, the first to arrive at the front lines and the last to leave with their heavy weapons, ships and aircraft. They are headed by Jiwa Cranktopple and are given the responsibility of waging, and managing warfare across Azeroth and beyond. The AF will be the go-to place for anyone looking to charge into battle with the Horde, the Legion or any other threat standing against the lands and people of the Alliance. The Counter Intelligence Department, run by Rappa Ranger, is the specialised group of trained operatives who work behind enemy lines, and in the shadows of the Alliance lands, to gather information, remove key targets, and stop terrorism and catastrophe before it strikes! Like the Stormwind Guard, the CID operates on both internal and external fronts - it has a presence within the city watching from the back of the crowd, and deep within hostile territories, cultivating its close working friendship with the Guard and Brigade Military to quickly strike and effectively keep everyone safe. The Magical Department is the arcane might of the Brigade and manages the diplomatic ties between the Brigade (as well as to some extent the Alliance) and the City-State of Dalaran, it is headed by Archmage Khadromars Spellweaver. The key task of the Magic Department is to offer guidance to both the Guard, the Guild Council and the Alliance when needed. It has multiple roles, from fighting with the Armed Forces to cover them on the battlefield, assisting the Guard with dangerous enemies of the state who take up residence in the city. The other aspect of the MD is to take in Kirin Tor recruits and help train them on the field, as well as tracking down, securing and locking away objects deemed to dangerous to be left out in the world. Come Legion, the Brigade has a complex and fun storyline planned that will take it across Azeroth and the new zones, entering the dungeons and raids ICly to conquer the Legion and undermine its plot. We will be spouting a powerful member base and an established Council to lead us into the new expansion! History: As many know, the Royal Lions Brigade started out as the Conjurers Court a little over 7 years ago and quickly became one of the major players within the community. Archmage Kelsus Hadson, former Kirin Tor emissary, resigned his mantle to the city-state of Dalaran and joined the Alliance in Stormwind. The Court managed magical affairs within the Kingdom and policed the misuse of the magical arts with the aid of its member base, keeping the people of Azeroth safe. Under the first years, the Conjurers Court took control and command of Westbrook Garrison, the stronghold of Elwynn forest making use of it as the orders headquarters that carries onto the present day. Eventually, the Court decided to change its direction and merge with the Stormwind Guard - becoming more military active in the wider world and changing its name to the Alliance Protectorate. From here, the guild ventured out into Pandaria to fight the looming threat of the Sha and aid the recovery of the Pandaren people from the war that had come to their lands. This went on for many months, before finally the decision was made to once again remake ourselves and join the best of both the Court and the Alliance Protectorate together - a magical Council with the wisdom and knowledge of many great Dalaran Archmagi, and the military prowess and strength of powerful commands and tacticians. From this the Royal Lions Brigade was founded under the firm leadership of its Commander, Kelsus Hadson. Now, the Brigade stands as a pillar of both knowledge and power against any foe that would seek to destroy the mighty Alliance, or harm her people, whilst also offering kinship and a place to call home to any interest in furthering their cause. Our Leaders: Commander: - Archmage Kelsus Hadson Chancellor: - Archmage Barbro McGinty High Council: - Archmage Khadromars Spellweaver - Regent Rappa Ranger - Jurar (The Mystical Panda) Council: - Director Jiwa Cranktopple - Cedrey Winterfang - Garrikk Where to join?

Nov 12 <Catch Phrase> 7/7H 3/3N 6hrs/wk casual raids If you are interested in raiding with us in Legion, please contact an officer (contact info at bottom) Our current recruitment needs: Any exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of recruitment needs. We raid Tues/Wed 8:00-11 EST during progression, although realistically this is 4.5-6hrs. Catch Phrase is a semi-casual raiding guild on Earthen Ring Horde. We are incredibly laid back, though many of our members have raided hardcore progression in the past, and some even in US top 100. We are a fun group of mostly recent grads, who like to have fun, and enjoy each other’s company. Our community also spreads to other games such as LoL and Diablo. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What we expect: Due to our shortened raid week, we expect all raiders to come to raid fully aware of fight mechanics, and knowledge of how to perform on a high-end level. We absolutely expect to use every bit of those seven hours to go to progression, and we expect every raider to want the same. We want our raiders to be on time, and able to stay for the entire 3 hour night. Some nights we may go over, if we’re really close to a kill. This will never extend further than 15-20 minutes past 11. Our members are not easily offended, and we expect you to be the same. If kids are present, we strongly recommend a headset, as we will not censor ourselves. Every member of the raid team needs to be able to follow directions, whether they be established jobs in an encounter or on-the-fly commands issued by another member of the raid. We expect every raider to be able to conquer any mechanic, and very quickly. Mistakes happen, but standing in fire four times consecutively is not a mistake. We also expect our raiders to be proactive during encounters as apposed to reactive; if you see something that needs to be soaked, you shouldn't be waiting for someone to call it out. Most importantly: Have fun, and enjoy yourself. We will shift to 20m Mythic team with a similar progression-oriented mindset. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone looking to apply can head over to our website at and fill out an application. If you have any questions add Andy (Oromiselda#1537), Gurio (Zombie240#1387), or Lord Pigga in-game. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Current Roster Guild Website: Kill videos with multiple PoVs can be found at: Logs can be found at: And yes, we do have many people who pet battle competitively.Gurio264 Nov 12
Nov 11 Old School Role Call, Take Two Apparently Blizzard wasn't a fan of some old school Earthen Ringer's necro'ing the last Old School Role Call thread, but I enjoyed seeing old names pop back up from time to time so I figured I'd bring about round 2.

Oct 28 [H] Looking for Guild MM/BM Hunter looking for a guild to run some Mythic + and raids with. I've done the whole hardcore progression raiding in the past and find that I get burned out on it after a while, so i'm looking for more of a casual experience with some easy going people who want to raid and dungeon for fun as well as get some loot in the process. I'm a bit older now and have a full time job with some odd hours so I don't really get to play till about 10 pm or so till about 1 in the morning EST and am hoping to find a guild who raids/dungeons a little later at night. Usually any day of the week is fine. If anyone is interested just hit me up in game or on my btag, Draptor#1871. Thanks for reading.Draptor1 Oct 28
Oct 26 [H] Story Night (RP) - Tuesdays 8pm EST FYRP: Shaw (Me!) is hosting Story Night @ the Central Rise, Thunder Bluffl from 8pm to 9pm-ish, Tuesday the 29th! This is an open, no-hassle rp event that is open to all. Stories are not mandatory, so sitting in is ok! It's also a good way of getting to know other Horde RPers in character. Upcoming Locations/Dates: --------------------------------------- 12/6 - To Be Announced ================================= Note: If no one gathers by 8:15pm, cancellations may occur. We'll go past 9:00 as needed, if not, open RP can start and the event will break camp - feel free to stay and RP afterward! Greetings all, For quite a few years now, I have been hosting the weekly "Story Night" aka "Tears Tuesday" Hordeside. For many, this is the first RP event folks see or experience. For all those that have come over the years, I appreciate you all taking the time to stop by and listen, being supportive and maybe share a story or two. One of the cornerstones of RP is respect. As RP seems to be seen as the "Wild West" as far as any "official" rules, respect for others is crucial for the RP community to grow and have fun. We all are in a RP community, whether we admit it or not. It's also a social outlet as well, which means the respect part of RP is all that much more needed in working together. I run a simple and civil rp event for a reason. The main goal is to have a no-pressure rp event and to have fun. The premise is simple - and was made like that by choice and design. A welcome event for both RPers and Non-Rpers to enjoy some stories and role-playing. The event is an example that: 1) RP is alive on Earthen Ring (For the naysayers that think otherwise.) 2) RPers are people too, and some great ones at that. (For those that believe stereotypes.) 3) RPing can *gasp* be fun. (For those that think RP is a waste of time.) All I do is host and organize, without those that come, it's nothing - so I thank you all. Thanks to the < Tears of Draenor > and the ooc rper channel forthehorde as well for the support as well behind the scenes. Also thanks to Ilemnemis for hosting the reboot of the old "Tears Tuesday" years ago before I was host. Stay safe and Godspeed. "Shaw"Shaw225 Oct 26
Oct 25 [H] <Intangible> Tues/Wed evening Server 1st Nythendra kill 4/7 Emerald nightmare need 4 more DPS Current Needs 1 ranged Hunter 1 cloth DPS prefer mage 1 Ele Shaman OR 1 resto shaman 1 RogueEven if your class is not listed feel free to contact me (4 DPS) current or returning players We look at overall experience and attitude equally. You MUST be able to give top performance, have the right attitude, be reliable, and be determined. Tues/Wed 6:30pm-10:30pm.EST Gundam#1412 Have Fun, Make Friends, Kill Things!! The long version... <Intangible> is a raiding guild on Earthen Ring with the belief that raiding should be a mature, fun, and social experience. Our guild caters to mature players who want to see current content & are motivated to progress through. Exceptional players with modest and positive attitudes are preferred over ones that feel the need to constantly advertise their abilities. We are a group of fun-loving, hardworking individuals who want to progress without spending 7 days a week raiding. We are semi-hardcore, with a focused and dedicated raid core, but we don't treat raiding like a second job. Most of our players are over the age of 20 and have families/jobs/college. Our approach to raiding is casual in the sense that we are always respectful of our member's time. We expect that people have consistent attendance, respond well to constructive criticism, and are committed to putting forth their best effort. Our raid times will be Tues/Wed 6:30pm-10:30pm.EST. Priority will go to applicants who can make all primary raid days with 99% attendance. Our goal is to maximize our raid experience instead of our time spent raiding, therefore we are seeking consistent and dedicated members with excellent raid attendance as well as performance. Exceptional candidates will be given consideration regardless of current class needs. Core Positions are awarded based on attendance & performance. Requirements: * Minimum gear raiding standards are; properly gemmed/enchanted, and ready with consumables. * A solid understanding of your class, and well-read up on raid encounters. * Mature, sociable, easy to get along with, and will follow instructions. * Working Vent and have good latency/FPS. * 99% attendance rate. Any in-game questions should be directed to Gundam. Feel Free to add me to real ID Gundam#1412 On a side note we look at overall raiding history as we know many people took a break, either to play another game or RL issues, so current raiding experience is important but attitude and overall raiding experience is more important.Gundam2 Oct 25

Oct 20 [A] Official <Sacred> thread:7/7 Heroic EN! New exp, new thread. Many thinks to everyone who helped make HFC as fun and rewarding as possible (especially given the end of exp content lull). OK, below is our guild spam. At the moment we're not actively looking for raiders, but if you want to play with a team that will push content, we have a group that is competition based and a spot can be yours if you can take it. ... Looking forward to many fun times over the course of this exp!!!Desiderio12 Oct 20

Oct 17 About Earthen Ring Hello, all! To make a long story short I am looking to transfer my main (Balance Druid) who is currently on Destromath-PvP. I have been thinking about doing this for quite sometime now and just started searching the other day. Not to go on to much of a rant, its just I have to get away from the play style of PvP servers. I started looking at different PvE realms and doing my research on each and didnt really find quite what I was looking for. Started looking at the RP realms and... Here is what I am looking for: In general, more mature player base also a bit on the social side, I am thinking I may have better luck with this on a RP realm. In addition to that PvE based server, friendlier player base, minimal trolling etc... And of course a little bit of RP'ing. If anybody would like to share your thoughts I would be much thankful!Bulrug2 Oct 17

Please shoot me a message or respond to this thread if interested in us! In game contact Wrull or Barsabbas!Wrull1 Oct 17
Oct 17 (H) <Dark Honour> Recruiting for Legion <Dark Honour> Server: Earthen Ring US Faction: Horde Time Zone: Primarily Eastern and Central US Who are we: We are an adult guild created so we can play, raid and see content on our own schedule without the demands of a truly hardcore guild. We all have families, careers or both. Careers in both Fire and EMS to Military, Banking, Teaching and IT. We will be raiding in Legion starting with Heroic content. Mythic is an option that we are considering although it will be time and membership dependent. Who we're looking for: We are looking for adult players (21+ or 18+ with a reference from a current member) of all play-styles. We expect those who wish to raid with us to put effort into developing their characters both in and out of raid content. You should be able to carry your own weight and not be carried by the guild. We don't expect you to be a min-maxing hardcore theory-crafter, but don't settle for the minimum either. What you can expect: Dedicated leadership in a family and career friendly environment. We consider ourselves to be an excellent guild for those in the military and public service who play World of Warcraft and want to be a regular part of a progression raid team. We also consider ourselves to be an excellent guild for those with small children who wish to progress, but can not commit to every scheduled raid due to the time a child requires and the unexpected events that occur when you have a small child. We do not hold attendance, or a lack thereof, against our members. Our raid schedule rotates from week to week with all raids scheduled 1 month in advance. We do this so our members who work odd shift schedules and hours have a better opportunity to make raids without feeling they have to make career sacrifices to attend. We will schedule 2 nights a week from 8-11 pm EST. A 3rd can be added on a week to week basis determined solely by the membership for additional progression attempts. A 3rd night will not be added to our monthly scheduling. We have no class or spec requirements. Our members play the class and spec they wish to play. The only restriction being that we obviously wont have 7 tanks or 12 healers on a progression attempt. Loot System: We use the Suicide Kings loot system. All members who attend the first raid will do a /roll 1-100 and will be ordered from high to low on list. When a piece of loot drops, the first person on the list get first choice at the loot drop. After taking an item you are moved to the bottom of the list. Members who join in later raids will be plugged in at the bottom of the list. Members not in attendance for a raid will be skipped over when an item drops, but will not lose their spot on the list. Personal loot is still being discussed as an a potential option. We are currently waiting to see how much success other guilds have using the new personal loot system in Legion as there is still a lot of grey area in that loot system when it comes to distribution and keeping things fair to everyone. A little more info: As stated earlier we want to see content and that does not mean strictly raid content. With Legion comes a whole new area to explore in The Broken Isles. As such we will be kicking off our raiding either the last week of November or the first week of December. There is a lot of new content and some major changes to classes and roles. We want to give our members not only the time to explore and enjoy the release of the expansion but to also try out all the different classes and specs they may desire playing in Legion. We also feel this will give our guild time grow after the launch of Legion, give our members time to get to know each other and prepare for the raid content through gearing outside of raid. We understand that may be too long for some people to wait to get started raiding and those people are obviously not who we are looking for. We will raid, we will be successful, we will progress and we will be able to have fun and enjoy doing it. If your looking for hardcore or top 100 you should probably look elsewhere. If you are looking for competitive, successful and enjoyable then you came to the right place. *All new members will go through a 3 week trial before attaining full membership.* Guild Contacts: Xaqshnr#1186 Dzargul#1938Kanicus27 Oct 17

Oct 13 New to the Earthen Ring RP? Start Here! Introduction Welcome to Earthen Ring! We are one of the older RP realms, going live back in November 2004. Earthen Ring sports a mix of Role-Playing, Raiding and PvP - so, if you like a little Raiding/PvP when not RPing, you can find it here. While we do have many Non-RPers on Earthen Ring, we generally do try to get along with each other. Some actually try their hand a RP, which is very cool. There's good people here on Earthen Ring, whether they RP or not. :) See below for some useful stuff! Updated: 06/07/16Sullivan107 Oct 13

Oct 9 [H] Server Shopping Hello all! I mainly play Alliance right now and RP on Wyrmrest Accord and casually raid on Fizzcrank. I would really like to start leveling a couple Hordies (primarily Tauren) and am looking for a server that has a decent amount of activity. While I'm not specifically looking for heavy RP, I would like to know that RP is at least available. Otherwise, I'm mostly interested in socializing and casual PvE/PvP. Raiding is definitely not a priority, but I wouldn't mind jumping into dungeons/raids with guildies. So...what's Earthen Ring like Horde side? Are there many active guilds? Is it relatively easy to find RP outside of guilds? Thanks for any advice. :)Dumbledwarf2 Oct 9
