Hey, folks. I'm writing to gauge interest in a reroll guild based around a few key principles. I was part of a similar reroll a few months ago which was surprisingly fun, and different, but tanked after about a month due to lack of leadership (the GM disappeared, without word, after the first week, and I was left as the only officer, and the only person with invite privileges. It had its complications.) That said, it was the most fun I've had playing WoW since I started, and I'd like to give it another shot. No random dungeon finder. We completely ban the use of the random dungeon finder, in an effort to bring back a sense of community the game has been missing since the addition of LFD. Instead of queuing up with some random people from random servers we aren't likely to speak a word to, or even think of afterwards, we group up and run dungeons the old fashioned way: by walking to them.
Here's the idea:
It's crazy how much of this game we miss when we blow through it with LFD, power leveling to 85. When there's not enough people to run a dungeon, there's still plenty to do in-world. Questing, RP, world PVP, farming, whatever floats your boat. It's called WORLD of Warcraft, not Server Group of Warcraft. That is this guild's mission statement.-
WPVP, WPVP, WPVP. World PVP is an absolute must. As previously mentioned, it's called WORLD of Warcraft, not Random Battleground of Warcraft. This guild is present in its world, in every aspect of game play. There's a certain satisfaction about killing the opposing faction on your own server that can't be fully enjoyed in a random battleground. If BGs happen, they'll be with 5-man parties, and we'll run to the entrance. Arenas, which take far less time and offer considerable reward, are up for discussion.-
RP is encouraged. The server I've chosen is Emerald Dream (RP-PVP), for two important reasons: It's the most active of any server in WPVP, and has a thriving RP community to boot. RP is not required, but is absolutely encouraged, and at the very least we require compliance with the standards of an RP server (names, conduct, etc). RP is light-medium, with a loose guild storyline: a group of mercenaries/explorers pushing outward, conquering Azeroth for the Horde.-
Take it slow. We level cap at 60, 70, and 80 to explore vanilla and expansion content. Lots of us missed out on, or just miss, the old raids. No matter when you started playing WoW, we'll get a chance to run through them. Ultimately we'll play together through MoP, with the satisfaction of having really completed the previous content.-
TL;DR. Reroll idea: Emerald Dream (RP-PVP), Horde, completely server-bound (no random dungeon finder or random battlegrounds unless we run to the world entrance as a group), WPVP/RP focused. Anyone interested?
