In six years together, our approach to WoW's end-game experience has remained unchanged. We like to raid, and we like to do it with a fair amount of skill and professionalism (...and perhaps a fair amount of wine). There are a lot of terms developed describing the kind of attitude we take towards the raiding game: casualcore, semi-casual, hardcore-lite. We figure it's safest just to describe what we're about and let people come up with their own name for it.
Our respect for each other ensures that we bring our best to the raid, and that cuts both ways: our raid leaders respect our members’ time as much as they expect the same in return. We emphasize punctuality and preparation on both sides of the raid equation.
We also understand that our members lead full and complicated lives. We schedule relatively few hours in our official raid week, and maintain flexible attendance policies. Our expectations are set accordingly. We like a challenge, and we want to see all of the great end-game content, but the competitive side of progression really isn’t our thing. A mature, low drama environment where we can kill tough internet dragons with friends? That is.
We also feel that the social aspects of the guild aren't just an add-on, but are essential to our mission. We talk about pets and jobs as much as we talk about simulationcraft or why all the hunters are dead. Our friendships continue into other games, and we host an annual summer BBQ. Yep, IRL. (There was cake.)
We're an older guild, with an average age somewhere in the mid-30s -- in other words, old enough to not want to get too specific. ;) We have an 18+ policy not because zomg we hate kids, but because some of us actually have them and the guild is more for Mom & Dad time.
Below is some basic raid information. We're pretty transparent about who we are and what we do, so if you'd like to know more, please visit our website: some of our forums are open to the public, and anyone can see our activities calendar.
