<Carpe Noctem> is an 8/8H guild filled with highly capable and friendly players looking to go 25M in MoP and be at the front in progression.
Our website is located at: http://carpe-noctem-tichondrius.wowstead.com/. Forum posts that probably have all the answers to questions you need are:
Here are some answers to general questions that will naturally pop up.
Q: When do you raid?
A: Raid times are Wednesday/Thursday 6-10 PM ST.
Q: Do you guys plan to still raid DS?
A: Yes, we do plan to raid DS up until MoP. I strongly recommend you read the second forum link I posted because it will explain everything that's going to happen until MoP.
*The weeks of the 26th and 2nd we won't be raiding, but we will be raiding DS the last 2 weeks before MoP*
Q: What are you guys looking for?
A: In terms of requirements, we're looking for high quality players looking to play at as highest a level they can play. 6/8H+ is a good benchmark, but definitely not all one needs. I will generally require that you have logs to prove your worth.
That being said, I am fully aware that gear ≠ skill, and that 6/8H (definitely at 30% nerf) does not assure a high quality player. If a person who's 5/8H applies, it doesn't mean they are instantly declined, but they will be required to have something exceptional on their part. Things that qualify under "exceptional" are (but are not limited to) the following:
-Logs proving extensive knowledge and performance of your class
-Background history proving that at your times of raiding at a competitive level, you were well achieved.
We've had people show logs of really good performance that have gotten accepted. We've also gotten people who haven't done a whole lot of DS but have done things like H LK pre nerf, KJ pre-nerf, or been in reputable guilds such as <Death and Taxes> and <Blood Legion Spec Ops> that have gotten accepted.
As for classes we are looking for, we will obviously consider any exceptional player, but we are looking for both:
Warlock, DK DPS.
Just as important as all these other requirements, we're looking for players with a good attitude. We're looking for players who are polite to everyone in the guild, as the guild is a community in itself. We are looking for players who are always working to better themselves, but are also able to take criticism. This is a mature, friendly, but high performance level guild; Inappropriateness won't get you far in here.
Q: Any other expectations?
A: Yes there are a few more general expectations.
-High attendance. I'm not going to use some number like "85% minimum attendance" because that makes it feel that 84% attendance gets the boot. Generally you should be prepared and ready to raid, unless there is an emergency. For the sake of making this easier, we will also include vacations as emergencies, but having a vacation every 2-3 months is very much pushing it. Emergencies can vary from family member crisis to having your Honors or Pre-Med examination early the next morning. Either way, communication is required.
-For the other requirements I suggest you look at the first forum thread I posted.
