Winter is Coming is a guild looking to experience a bit of everything MoP has to offer. We are home to the best PvPers on the realm in terms of arena + RBG ratings. However, PvE will be our main focus with an emphasis on attaining server firsts on a server with few competitive raiding guilds. We aim to create a competitive raiding environment, which allows our best, most consistent players to shine and progress with our core. We plan to progress through MoP (at least early on), as a tight-knit 10-man raiding team. Recruitment-wise, we're not looking for a list of credentials about what you've achieved (though it doesn't hurt). We're most concerned with player ability, attitude, and what you CAN achieve. We will raid three nights a week during MoP progression (Tue/Thur/Sun at 8PM-12AM EST), and we expect people to be reliable and have control over their play-time.
Our current core is primarily a group of RL friends who have been playing together since vanilla. We have raided successfully, at the highest possible level (all former members of #1 guilds on various servers), throughout the past few years, and in doing so we have added a few along the way. Most of us are recent college graduates, with a few outliers, in terms of age, which have managed to fit in quite well. We encourage a laid-back, low-key, fun-first environment, though we get serious when it comes to progression (hence our goal of server firsts, which will easily be met with 1-2 quality recruits).
Recruitment Needs *Classes marked as open feel free to apply.
As a potential server transfer, you would be applying for a permanent spot. The spot would be yours until you dramatically go out of your way to lose it, as we don't intend to have anyone waste their money. For applicants on our server, we may encourage competition for the particular position you are interested in.
EVEN IF A CLASS SAYS CLOSED ALL CANDIDATES ARE CONSIDERED SPOTS ARE OFFERED ON A COMPETITIVE BASIS (i.e. you outplay someone and are dedicated you get a spot)
Druid: Resto, Balance open. Feral closed.
Death Knight: Closed
Priest: Open (Healing more desired than Shadow atm)
Shaman: Open (All specs will be considered)
How to Apply
Being a 10-man guild focusing on a small, tight-knit core, instead of making you apply with an application template online and go through a somewhat belabored process, we would like to encourage contact via realid so we can get to know the player we are potentially bringing in. If you are interested in potentially joining up with us or simply learning more, feel free to add email@example.com (buraq) or firstname.lastname@example.org (chop) to your realID. One or both of us is typically online. Cheers.
