Mother Approved is a meritocracy where demonstrable playing skill and a desire to be the best will get you a full time raiding position, but only having the best in slot gear will not. Our philosophy of skill>all leads to being very selective of who we let in. Yes, this results in a more selective process, but that is part of being a progression raiding guild.
We plan to have a much stronger presence in cataclysm. We formed about a week before ICC was released. So compared to other guilds who have been around much longer than us, we are happy with our progression so far and have great plans for the expansion.
For our future in Cataclysm, we will be rolling with 10's until everyone is level 85 and have experienced enough of the 10m strats so that we can transition into 25's without forcing ourselves into a longer learning curve. We try to have a good mix of not only elitism for progression, but an understanding that real life happens. It's unfortunate but mistakes happen. It's how you handle mistakes the following attempt that shows your true character and ability in this game. (Although, not making any mistakes are the goals for everyone)
Raid times: Tue/Wed/Thurs 6-9 pm PST (9-12 pm EST) (Mandatory without prior notice)
Other nights are scheduled for 10's where the 25's will split into smaller groups to continue progression. Clicking accept and not showing up will result in a loss of raiding position. Showing up late will have the same result. We take the first 25 who show up prior to raid invites.
Current 25 Considerations are:
**We are not in "need" of raiders. We do currently fill our raids even this late in the expansion. But skill, attendance, and commitment will guarantee you a raid spot. The applicants we are considering are those who are driven for raiding and progression. If we put you through trials and accept you. You will have a raid spot, we do not recruit for standby.
