This is what we expect from those that want to join our team and raid with us. <The Departed> is a guild of very solid and experienced players that raid on a casual schedule. Many of our core raided in vanilla, and everyone shares a primary goal of pushing end game content. We like a challenge, and many of us enjoyed 25 man raiding and want to pick this back up again in MOP. We are going to be THE horde side 25 man raiding guild in MOP, and just need a few star players to fill our roster.
If your guild is struggling just to stay alive and you are not happy, we want to talk to you. If you want a structured raiding environment with other like minded players that like competition, we want to talk to you. If you want to be able to log on and have tons of active players to do raids, pvp, farming, questing, old school stuff, compare homework - we want to talk to you. It is no big secret that there are WAY to many guilds on Laughing Skull. Why not merge into ours and be able to accomplish all the goals you have set out for yourself with like-minded Warcrafters.
2 days a week usually 9-12 server Wed/Thurs.
What Makes Our Guild Different
The three most common things people look at when searching for a guild are (1) current class openings, (2) progression, and (3) raid times. While those are all important, here are other things to consider that make our guild stand out.
Low Turnover. We have never lost a single person due to jumping ship to a more progressed guild. Ever. That’s because people here genuinely enjoy our raiding environment. There’s no annoying member that is nevertheless tolerated. Well except for Naveah.
Commitment to Scheduling. Sometimes you’ll see guilds advertise certain raid schedules only to find out they regularly raid past their posted time that’s eating into your sleep or other commitments. Our raids end on time.
No Bench. Every member of our raiding roster is a valuable part of the team, and we won’t invite someone to the guild just to be a backup in case one of our raiders can’t make it. Sometimes you’ll see a guild advertise an open spot and end up disappointed when you’re allowed in for just 1 or 2 bosses.
No Carries. When we say our players are solid, we don’t mean 9 out of 10 of them are. Our entire roster consists of some of the most reliable and experienced players you’ll find. Our healers Bormes and Camshaft can heal with anybody anywhere anytime. Our prot warr Blockadeii could easily do an instructional video on kiting bloods on H Spine - he has it down to perfection.
Personality. We take the game seriously, but with a laid-back attitude. Nobody yells, and everyone maintain a light-hearted attitude, even during progression. We don’t troll general chat or brag on the forums. Overall our members are mature and pleasent to be around. Well except for Naveah.
•Must play well with others. Because we are a guild of adults, it is important to us that everyone remembers we are all here to have fun. We have zero tolerance for drama or disrespect. We do not care how good your DPS is, or how amazing you think you are.
•Ability to meet our raid schedule. Because we do have limited raid time, and we are trying to push the endgame in that time, it is important that you have the ability to meet our raid schedule. Since we only raid 6 hrs a week, we expect perfect attendance.
•Know your class.
•Gear. We have always firmly believed that the player is more important than the gear they are wearing.
•Loyalty. The Departed is becoming a family. We have a high member retention rate, and when we recruit members it is important to us that they want to be a part of The Departed, which means enjoying the good and hanging in there through the bad. We have been up front and honest with you, and we expect the same courtesy in return.
I really hope you will take some time to consider us as your guild for MOP, and for the future. Please get a hold of myself in game, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or my skype is goldeycapitalbrian. Feel free to talk with any of our core raiders about our environment as well.
