Census & Excise [H - 10 man] is comprised of a core group of raiders determined to make progress with uncompromising standards. We believe it is possible to be a strong progression guild while still 1) allowing room for a life, 2) maintaining a close-knit circle, and 3) giving raiders just as much a voice as officers. By being very specific with the players who join us, we seek to maintain an effective and cooperative unit to clear through all of the toughest of the game’s content. And we have fun doing it!We expect nothing less than the highest performance you can bring. We will address problems immediately; if a certain player is a continual issue, they will not be taken to raids.You should be able to perform your given role in a host of situations and under varying levels of stress. Bad nights happen, but you can’t let that throw you off.Attention to Details
Individually, we are all excellent players. We got a late start on T11 somewhere mid-January. Since then, though, we have been blasting through content on a slim 9-hour schedule. We reached 11/13 in heroic content before 4.2 and 4/7 in heroic 4.2 content before the raid-wide nerf.
Dragon Soul: 1/8 Heroic
Firelands: 6/7 Heroic
BoT: 4/5 Heroic
BWD: 6/6 Heroic
TotFW: 1/2 Heroic
Tuesday: 8 pm -11 pm
Thursday: 8 pm - 11 pm
Sunday: 8 pm - 11 pm (based on success earlier in the week)
*All times are CST (server time).
We try to maintain ~13 core raider spots and rotate people in each fight; you won’t ever spend a whole night on the bench. We are always seeking extraordinary players. If you feel that you play far above average, please apply, regardless of class/spec.
You - The Recruit
High Standard of Performance
You should know your rotations as second nature, thus allowing you to pay attention to fight mechanics, conversation in Mumble, etc.You should know and keep up on the best gems, enchants, and consumables for your character.Constant Consideration for Self-Improvement
The game is constantly changing as new patches come out and player knowledge increases. You should always be thinking about ways to improve your own performance.We expect that you frequent forums, blogs, news sites, and whatever other resources exist to stay up-to-date on mechanics and theorycrafting.Mature Attitude
Realize that we’re all raiding to progress. If we aren’t progressing, we’ll attempt to fix the problem and may critique something about your playstyle. Don’t take it personally.Absolutely no drama. There is no reason for this and it will not be tolerated. We encourage an open environment with issues, so you shouldn’t be the type to hold a grudge.Personality Fit
One of the most important aspects of successful raiding is effective cooperation. We want players who think like us, play like us, and have similar interests to ensure that we act as a fully-functional team.We aren’t exactly the most passive bunch. If we aren’t joking around with you in chat, something is wrong. You should be okay with the banter and be able to laugh at yourself (Likewise, you should be able to dish it out as well).You should actually enjoy the playing the game. We like to do various group things even when we’re not raiding. Though these aren’t required, it’s nice to see various guild mates on throughout the day.Reliability
10 mans leave no room for slack. If one person doesn’t show up to a raid they were expected at, causing the raid to not be full, they’re potentially holding the rest of the guild back.Real life happens and we understand that. All we ask is that you communicate with us if a conflict arises. We like to be informed.Interested in Joining Us?
