Server: Bloodhoof (PVE - east coast time zone) Horde
Altoholics Anonymous was formed late in the WOTLK expansion in anticipation of 10-man raiding in Cataclysm. In our first night of attempts we got Bloodhoof’s server-third Heroic Lich King (10 man) kill. Since then, we have become Bloodhoof's premier 2-night/week progression guild.
We keep our raiding schedue fairly light, yet still maintain a high level of progression. We raid two nights a week - Wednesdays and Sundays from 8:30PM - 1:00 AM server time.
We are currently 5/8 heroic and should be completing our sixth heroic kill in Dragon Soul soon. We have also completed 6/7 heroic (3/7 pre-nerf) in Firelands, 6/13 heroic and 12/12 normal mode for BWD/BOT/Conclave (all pre-4.2). Due to recent member disappearance, we currently have openings in our core. Preference would be given to the following classes, though all are encouraged to apply:
Tanks with viable DPS OS:
All tanks will be considered, possible preference to DKs and Druids
Healers with viable DPS OS:
Priest (Prefer Holy)
Note: A raid-viable off-spec is always viewed as huge asset. We run with a small core of raiders to minimize time on the bench, so having flexibility within our core raid team is very beneficial.
We are progressing into Dragon Soul Heroics right now, with the fifth boss close to completion but we need dedicated core players to fill spots. As such, we are looking for someone who can step right into progression with us. That doesn't mean you have to be decked out in straight 397+, but we are looking for someone with at least SOME experience in Dragon Soul content (heroic experience is a plus) and at least full-378+ gear. Since we are still killing some normal bosses, along with doing our progression for heroics, gear will come with time as well. We need players that research their class and know their mechanics, while not standing in fire.
We are also recruiting backups or people to possibly help fill out a second/alt raid group.
As far as expectations go, we fully expect all members to show up on time, ready to raid. We don't raid often so we like to make the most of the time we do have. All consumables are supplied by the guild.
The two most important things are knowing your class inside and out while still being fun to be around. We have an interesting dichotemy between having very high expectations of people while not wanting to be @$$es while we raid (we'd probably be one of those 4-5 night/week guilds otherwise). We want players who can perform near the limits of their class and are always looking for ways to push that limit, but who can also joke around while raiding. If you are the super serious type who cannot take a joke, this probably isn't the place for you. Likewise, if you cannot take constructive criticism, you need not apply. We want to be great raiders and have fun while doing so.
If you are interested in applying, please talk to Shockurface or Vesooveeus in game, or drop by our forums at http://altoholics.wowstead.com/

Bumping this after a great night. Come by the website to see Llama's precisely rendered representation of our heroic Yor'sahj kill, seeing as how we were too busy harassing Manpurse to remember to take one. While you're there, you might as well apply to come raid with us!
Now 5/8! (don't give me any of that nerf crap...)
Would love to see 1-2 more people app, bonus points if you can competently fill more than one raid role due to having a non-fail offspec.
Come fill out an App and get yer purplez!
