PS: I went over your guild applications. You guys are completely mad. And here I thought Guinthel was the King of the Mad Hill. He's just part of the crowd.


Helps the apps know what they are getting into beforehand.

Also damn your app process is harsh. I was only going to app for a 'possible' raid spot (considering I don't know how my available times will change over the next month) and ofc guild perks, but I may just hold off until my timings are clear. And until I have a good WoL report (I died on my last Ultra to failure at Deterrence pushing >.<)


Our vetting process is fairly thorough, but the actual raids tend to be fairly laid back. When we were 25s (aka 15s while carrying 10) I did a number of performance reviews for individual people to go over rotations, CD management, positioning, etc. Haven't had to do that in a while, though I'll still offer advice if anyone asks.

Most of the stuff I call out in Vent/Mumble is related to boss abilities - calling out kill targets, CD adjustments for big hits, etc. I'm not the yelling type and I wouldn't say "Hey you only got off 40 explosive shots when you could have gotten 45" right after a kill. I do tend to pay attention to hunters more since that's the class I'm most familiar with nowadays and there's a direct comparison available if I'm in the raid.

But really the most important thing I like to see in apps is a willingness to improve, if you can mash buttons decently and stay out of fire it's fairly simple to get ~80% out of your gear. Even if you're not a WoL/Simcraft expert we can provide you with the tools and knowledge to get that extra +10% (We don't expect people to hit 100%, we're not going for world firsts here. Though if you're curious I can point out what's keeping you from getting there).

As every raiding guild on this server knows (especially Horde side) it's rare to come across a really polished player, so I always expect there to be some room for improvement. Most people can learn things about their class just from our application process, so I use it as a barometer to gauge how much they know, how quickly they pick up certain concepts, how they handle criticism, etc.

It's a decent time commitment on my end (I generally spend an hour or two going over the logs for each app) so if the app can reciprocate with some effort and handle the ribbing that's generally a good sign. Saying things like "I'd do better if I had more gear" (we can gear anyone, doesn't mean you're getting the most out of your toon) or "I had really bad RNG that attempt" (RNG doesn't account for you doing 10k less DPS than you should, man up and figure out where you can improve) is generally a bad sign.

You should see our Member Chat, we have some pretty interesting conversations. I'd say our personality is our greatest attribute, actual game-related stuff like half-decent progression and stability is kind of an afterthought.

I appreciate the long response. Honestly, considering that the guild I was running heroics with (not my own) has replaced me with a guildie, I'm out of raiding spots entirely and would have already applied for one if it wasn't for the fact that I may have a new job in another city in 2 weeks, which would mean that I cannot commit times of any kind for a while.

Aside from that, would you guys really be interested in another hunter? I'm levelling one because I find them really fun (hehe ISS with serpent spread at level 60. PULL THE WHOLE INSTANCE!) but like you said, you already have yourself, and we'd be competing for tokens and providing overlapping buffs.

This is my horde hunter btw: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/drenden/garrous/advanced . He's missing one trink because I got bored with outlands and started levelling a pally.

(I should also figure out WoL sometime, never did learn how to use the damn thing)

I appreciate you not calling it a long-winded response. There aren't that many weeks of raiding left (I'm hoping 5.0 hits ~early August) so we're primarily recruiting for MoP, no particular rush.

As long as you can pull similar numbers I don't really care. Think we're covered for all the MoP buffs/debuffs with our current roster, and it already took me 25 kills to get an Ultraxion chest anyway (I passed on the first chest to our warrior - who promptly went rogue - and another protector token didn't drop for 5 months).

What type of range DPS are you needing? I know you said any exceptional range DPS should apply, but what are you really needing/wanting?

Its funny, I got into a very minor kerfuffle with Requiem over titling recruiting threads. I genuinely was trying to be helpful but I guess I was a bit too... enthusiastic over it.

Which is why I gave this one a nice generic name. I mean, sure, I could start a new one, but why lose all this glorious history? The thread title and the OP would be pretty much the same. Reduce, reuse, recycle, am I right? Plus, goblins are great. I was really hoping they'd let us make Goblin Paladins. I'd have race changed in a heart beat.

Gunther, that was Sobie. He's still trying to keep you off the front page.

Kassabela, what kind of dps are we looking for? Um, ranged dps. Ideally someone who can step in and be ready to contribute to TES normal/MSV heroic kinda level. If you're looking for a dps threshhold I don't know if I can help you with specifics. Fights this tier are pretty mechanics-intensive and even in the same fight different jobs can affect your dps.

What would be spiffy would be to check out a Simulationcraft or other sim tool to see what you *should* be doing in your current gear and then test that out against a boss that kinda stands there (Galleon? Will as long as you're not multi-dotting?) and see how close you are.

Sobie's claiming that we could probably take another melee dps if they had a strong tanking off-spec, but that doesn't sound like a move that would help my job security so it sounds fishy to me.

Goblins are disgusting slime. Almost as bad as gnomes, night elfs, dorfs, humans, space cows and walking talking dogs.


Obv you aren't cool enough to hang.
