Should your raid times and days ever change...
Who We Are
Despotism is a 10 man raiding guild on the Greymane server that was founded in the last few months of WotLK. We had 4-5 raiders in the guild and got 12/12 normal, 11/12 heroic, and the Frost Wyrm meta achievement while raiding one night a week with half the raid as PUGs.
In Firelands, we achieved server first Heroic Ragnaros and were ranked World 440, United States 116 on two nights a week. In terms of two raids a week guilds, among English-speakers we were first worldwide.
Currently, we are server first with 8/8H in Dragon Soul and the Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider mount. We finished World 662, US 153 due to some roster issues that delayed us a few weeks on Spine (Blackhorn was US 108, Spine US 171, Madness US 153). We had Heroic Madness to 2% with the 5% nerf, killed it second pull of the 10% nerf.
Getting the most out of a light raiding schedule is the essence of Despotism. Many of us have been in server first guilds raiding 4+ nights a week in past expansions but we no longer have the time or inclination for such a schedule. This philosophy means we don't have time to screw around in raids.
We're looking for drama free players who can handle the pressure of heroic raiding where a missed interrupt means someone dies, where a wasted GCD can be a wipe, and where people need to be able to think quickly and adapt in chaotic situations. While we'd prefer certain classes and specs for raid composition, simply being a certain class or spec doesn't mean you're bringing the skill we need. In other words, the main thing we're looking for is player skill and maturity, and we're happy to take a non-preferred class if you have both.
We expect raiders to show up prepared by knowing both the general mechanics of fights and class or spec specific tricks to help the raid succeed. We also expect them to consistently execute the fights at an outstanding level. What we don't expect is for players with limited playtime to farm outside of raids. To this end, we provide all repairs, flasks, food, potions, gems, and enchants to allow our raiders to focus on what really matters: exceptional performance during raid time.
If you're recruited as a raider, you *will* be raiding. You may not be in for every boss but there is not an "A Team" of exactly 10 people with a "bench" who normally sits.
