Elysium is a relatively new Horde guild on Jaedenar that was created for raiding in Cataclysm, but our members are far from new. Our guild is comprised of players that came from some of the top and most longstanding guilds on this server, as well as from a few other servers. While raiding with our guilds during Wrath, we started talking about what our raiding situations were like and discovered that overall, we weren't very happy with the way things were going. We wondered what it would be like to be in a guild where no one is carried in raids, where members are more mature, and where there are no prima donnas constantly making jerks of themselves. We spent many months dreaming and planning, and as Cata approached, we decided to take our chances and go ahead with our plans. So we gathered our forces, hit the raids hard, and were rewarded with success after success. Despite taking a two-week break for the holidays, we are currently 11/13 for Cataclysm raids, and are looking forward to increasing that number again very soon.
Elysium is compromised of mature, competent players, and as a guild we are very selective of who we invite. Invitations are given based not only on skill, but also on personality and having a team-first mindset. We are a PvE-focused guild, and while many of our members actively participate in PvP, it's not the main focus of the guild.
Why are you looking for more members?
We recently decided that a better long-term strategy for Elysium would be for us to make the shift to 25-man raids. So in order to accomplish this we need to round out our roster with solid raiders who have the skills and the attitude to succeed.
Why join Elysium?
Elysium was founded to provide a fun and productive atmosphere for successful raiding, free from the stress and drama caused by carrying other raiders, and free from "Trade Chat Queens." We favor players who display a willingness to work in a close-knit team and put the needs of the group above their own, along with doing whatever is necessary to elevate their gameplay to its highest potential. If this sounds like you and the type of team you would like to be a part of, then we would like to hear from you.
What do you expect from your raiders?
We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared with both the materials (food, flasks, pots, etc.) and the knowledge (working knowledge of the bosses, our strats, and class mechanics) to create a productive and efficient raid.
What are your raid times?
We raid Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 8-11 p.m. server time; on occasion we will push past 11 p.m. if we're close to getting a progression fight down, but not without the consensus of the raid.
What type of loot system do you run?
We use a loot council where size of upgrade, personal effort, recent loot distribution, and overall raid benefit are all taken into account.
How far have you progressed?
We have killed 11 out of the 13 available bosses and are currently working on Al'Akir.
What classes or roles are you looking for?
We are currently looking to fill all classes and roles, although our needs will change as our newer members get geared-up.
