Shortly after Cataclysm was released, guild leadership ventured into BWD and downed Magmaw and ODS. (ohh ahhh bigdealiknow)
With a focus on eliminating old habits that previously hindered the guilds progression:
Recruiting players who only wanted to raid if Wintergrasp was on CD and believed resillience was an excellent attribute opposed to the crit or haste it could have been.
Inviting players who felt the need to stretch their legs for 10 minutes after every pull or wipe.
Sugar coating repeated mistakes because the rainbow on recount was more attractive than what was going on throughout the encounter.
Openly recruiting any individual who knocked on the door, regardless of the raids current needs, or even the days and times which said player could raid.
Striving for kindness because a third of our dps could not produce the numbers the gear we gave them mathematically said could be produced. Even while starring at recount and abilities. These players were often resurrected prior to looting. But hey, "no worries man you'll get it sooner or later!"
Anyways, we are recruiting. We now have two 10m groups. One of them is .04% short of Chimaeron. The other needs the dedicated players, as its only 2/6 BWD. Nobody seems to show up at raid time for them. Our third group is a compilation looking into BoT and has Halfus/Valiona down.
GTR will raid on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, for (3)Three hours beginning at 8:30 PM Server Time. The raid may continue passed the three hour mark if all ten players vote to continue.
Players who continuously show us they want to raid, are ontime, and stay online during the entirety of the raid will be noticed, and earn a spot vs another player who drools over loot and is not real interested in the guilds success overall. All classes and specs are welcome to send me an in-game mail or pm expressing their interest.
Who we are looking for:
Player who read through the entirety of this post to fully understand our expectations, and what they're getting into, and who they're getting into it with.
Players who can make the raid days and times religiously, I am probably not interested in you if you can only make Tuesday night because you have mass Wednesday, and significant other time Thursday. NOT that there is anything at all wrong with either of those, those are good, they're just not going to help our guild progress. But........
Pretty much anybody is welcome, we like guildees, and a lot of them become friends. Yet this post is not reaching out for friends, it's looking for players who wish to raid productively.
We currently only raid NINE hours a week. As a hardcore raider may imagine, that's almost hopeless in regards to quick progression and server wide competition. So, we seek individuals whose goal is to complete content before the next batch of content is released. Individuals who take it upon themselves to learn encounters as much as possible prior to pulling. Players who have their gear as ready to go as possible, either buy/make their own consumables, or spend the time farming herbs so that we may provide the raid with consumables. Logging on for a raid and logging off after the raid is over, yeah that Cadillac won't be registered here. As important as your time is, your three hours is nothing compared to the other twenty seven man hours in your raid. You owe it to them and the guild all the support you can provide.
And as always, efficient player-based skills are important. Although I should go out of my way to ask you intelligent questions about your class and role in the raid, seeking intelligent response and opinion from you, I will not. The guild will "assume" you have a strong idea about what you are doing until you show us in action, that you don't. Not a very proactive approach I know, but it has its reasons.
Uhm, this is getting a tad tooooo long. Sorry for the TLDR and thank you for your time. There are holes in this wall of text, so don't let it hit you.
