Topic [A] <The Esoteric Order> - Recruiting
The Esoteric Order is a casual raiding guild on the Medivh Realm. We are currently 2/7 in 10m Firelands and are pushing this content at the moment, lots of dead stuff, and good times. Our current goal is to get back to 25 person content and remain ahead of progression. We are a friendly bunch and refer to each other by our real life names. Esoteric Order guildchat is 100% 'Out of Character'. Guildchat is a haven for 'OOC' content, bizarre commentary, occasional profanity and lowbrow humor. We feel this is a selling point, but if that sort of thing offends you, we highly suggest you consider another guild. If this is the type of guild you are looking for, continue reading on and contact an officer in game!
What we are looking for:
-If you want to raid, then you should have the gear to do it, or be working on that. We will help, but we aren’t going to carry you. Currently this is ilvl 360+. If you have multiple characters you are more than welcome to bring them, but you will be expected to choose a ‘main’ for loot distribution and content progression. If you have “alts” that are lower geared please keep in mind that we do run those instances from time to time and on off nights to gear up alternate characters.
-If you want to raid but you have a lower geared character (+10) or a character who’s not yet 85, please talk to us. We are not interested in gearing up your toon so you can leave us for another uber guild the minute you can, but if you are working on raiding or being a part of our community, then we’re cool with you joining at any level.
-We want to push into 25m content and want like-minded individuals to join us.
-The ability to be on most raid nights (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) at or around 8:00 PM EST. Strive to be a “raider” at least 2 nights per week.
-Be an active guild member. If you join and the immediately go idle for a month we reserve the right to boot you. If you have an emergency, let someone know. We aren't heartless!
-We are looking for mature players; check your ego and your drama at the door. Take and give criticism constructively.
-A person with a sense of humor, we joke around and have fun, if you can't take a joke, you may want to look elsewhere.
-A person who has a good understanding of their class and the various roles they will have to play in a raid environment.
-A person who is unguilded or will be leaving their current guild on good terms, meaning you didn't just use them to get uber items so you can raid.
The Application Process:
Step 1: Let us know you are interested. Contact an officer in game. (Gelantria, Seethe, Cattitude, Gladewolf, Myune, Eilindenash, Gnomelisious, Amriel, Moirasha). If an officer is not online feel free to drop us an in game mail with hours when you can be around.
Step 2: We will contact you to set up a few runs in a heroic instance.
Step 3: Get invited to the guild as an aspirant, this will start your probationary period in the guild.
Step 4: Come raid with us! Get to know us as we get to know you!
Step 5: After being with us for about a month a vote will be conducted as to accept you as a full member of The Esoteric Order.
-Who Do I talk to about joining guild? You may contact Gelantria, Seethe, Cattitude, Gladewolf, Myune, Eilindenash, Gnomelisious, Amriel or Moirasha
-When do you raid? We Raid on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday Evenings from 8:00 pm EST to around 10:00 pm EST.
-What if something comes up and I can't attend a raid? We are a casual guild and understand that real life comes first. We do keep track of attendance for loot purposes, so it is beneficial for you to raid when you can.
-How do you handle loot? Loot is awarded based on best usage, best distribution and attendance. We have various checks and balances to prevent sand bagging and provide a system which is fair to everyone.
-How long does this application process take? It varies from person to person and situation to situation. We invite people when we are comfortable with them, feel we can trust them and enough time has passed that we really have a good feel for their ability and dedication. This can be different for everyone. Effort and attendance go a long way with EO.
By applying to The Esoteric Order you agree to the following:
-You will supply us with your real name. This is a very simple thing: no one is anonymous; we are not an anonymous guild.
-You agree that we are a casual atmosphere guild. We raid several nights a week (3-4) but there is no pressure to raid save what you place on yourself.
-You will not create or propagate drama for its own sake. You got a problem with someone in guild or near enough to create a headache? Solve it or an officer will.
-You are here to have fun. If you are playing WoW because you are addicted or some grieving weirdo, we don't want you.
-You are trustworthy.
