There are no requirements for admission - simply PST any online member and you'll receive an invite.
Our goals are simple:
- To minimize frustration in LFR via ultra-casual, zero commitment weekly raids
- To provide a relaxed and fun environment for players seeking the community WoW provides without scheduling concerns
- To support new players by providing a friendly home, information and resources during the leveling process
- To act as a "farm system" for Horde raiding guilds (come to <Horde Premade> to learn and graduate to Shard, etc. when you're geared and knowledgeable enough to consider submitting an application)
Initially we will be running a premade LFR group on Tuesday nights at 8:00pm Server Time. As we grow, we may increase the number of runs and expand into other areas of the game. For now, our focus is to bring as many players into LFR groups as we can in an effort to avoid the headache of players who AFK during fights, pull prematurely, etc.
Q: What's the point of a premade LFR guild?
A: To take advantage of the in-game systems Blizzard offers to casual players (such as player-specific loot rolls in Mists) while partially plugging the holes in a system that doesn't penalize anti-social behavior (AKA, AFKing through entire raids).
Q: What will happen if someone AFKs in a <Horde Premade> premade LFR?
A: They'll be warned, then removed from the group (not the guild) and might not be invited to future raids.
Q: How is this any better than the current system?
A: It's not that much better, but it promotes the A-N Horde community and offers a humble solution to a silly problem.
Q: Why should I join the guild instead of joining a trade chat premade or just going in on my own?
A: We'll prioritize members over non-members (though we will also offer open spots to anyone who wants to join). We also provide some resources to members. Ultimately, it really is intended to be just a basic step above LFR or trade chat. Somewhere for people who care a bit but don't have time, knowledge, gear, etc. to commit to a full-fledged raiding guild.
Q: What kind of "resources" should members expect?
A: We have 5 bank tabs (one for vanilla and each expansion [including Mists]). Anyone can deposit and we'll do our best to keep the tabs full of useful items (ore, enchanting mats, etc.) and free of garbage (light feathers, etc.). Everyone will receive a small daily withdrawal allowance. At this time we do not have plans for guild repairs. It's not much, but it's more than nothing.
Q: How do I join?
A: Whisper anyone in the guild. Everyone can invite. Nobody can remove. Come and go as you wish.
