Progression: 8/8, 1/8 heroic
Looking for: All exceptional, mature players. With the upcoming expansion it's impossible to know what we will need, but right now it looks like dps! A full time holy pally would be a plus too.
Archetype was founded over 4 years ago and, more than anything else, we're proud of our social atmosphere. While wow PvE tends to be our primary focus, we have many members and former raiders who simply enjoy hanging out in guild chat, on vent, or on the boards. We've got a group of pvp'ers, a number of starcraft 2 players, some league of legends players, and have established a presence in SWTOR.
With the exception of a few months of 10m raiding following the release of Cataclysm, we've maintained a 25m raid on Archimonde since mid BC. We're finding it necessary to recruit in order to keep our ranks healthy in anticipation of the expansion.
What you can expect from Archetype:
Archetype has a history of running stable, drama-free raids that progress at a steady pace. We use EPGP with a 10% weekly decay to distribute loot, and it has proven to be the most drama-free method for us.
We consider ourselves to be a "mature" guild. I know every guild considers themselves "mature", but by this I that most of our raiders are over 18 years old, the majority of which are between the ages of 25-30.
We offer constructive criticism based on empirical data such as meters and logs, as well as feedback from other members of the class. We are looking for people who can handle and give out constructive criticism.
What Archetype expects from you:
We have raiders from four different time zones so we have a relatively short raid week (~6 hours/week.) As such, we expect you to show up on time, prepared to raid. You should be repaired with consumables, and have at least a basic idea of the fights ahead of you. You should also be properly geared, gemmed, and enchanted for your role. We expect not to be held up by extended afk's (unless designated halfway through the raid, which is not uncommon.) We expect you to remain calm and have fun during progression, which is not always easy. We expect attendance that will allow us to raid with a roster of ~30 regular raiders (no repeated conflicts with a tues/sun raiding schedule). We expect at least a basic ability to self analyze and constantly improve - no egos, please. Most importantly, we expect you to show our raiders and raid leaders the same respect that is shown to you.

If applying to raid, please include anything you have that will help us determine what kind of raider you are. That could include anything from logs, to fraps, to screenshots of your ui. Be prepared to answer character and raid related questions in your app thread prior to any trial period.
Thanks for your interest. We hope to hear from you soon.
