The Iron Fist has been a prominent part of the Kargath community for over 7 years. During those 7 years, we have been focused on team work, and continuously building our community. We have always held a commitment to our members as a guild. We are committed to excellence in performance; however value team work and personality as the most important aspects of raiding. We take the perspective that we can teach you to maximize your skills, provided you maintain dedication and a good attitude. We have a quality officer and member core who are prepared to assist you with your class and role as needed.
We are an exceptionally welcoming guild. We are looking for members who are hoping to find their forever home with people who value the guild above individual needs. We also desire at least 80% attendance; however we are always accommodating to real life needs.
With that said, we do expect a certain level of performance. We are a progression guild. We are the type of guild who will chip away at a boss until its dead (as evident by our Lich King Heroic 25 man kill prior to the release of Cataclysm) without falling apart. We rarely fail to meet a specific goal and have maintained a quality squad of core individuals for 7 years. We maintain a competitive raid environment and make sure our best performers are in for progression, regardless of time and experience in the guild. With that said, we don’t want anyone to feel abandoned by The Iron Fist.
We have exceptionally low turnover rate. Typically, the members who choose to leave the raid squad do so due to real life concerns, rather than progression.
Not every person who wants to be in a top guild is a good fit for The Iron Fist. We look for attitude over abilities. You will never be yelled at in The Iron Fist, and you will never be belittled. We look to constructively build players to fit the guild’s needs.
Holy Paladin preferred
1 Tank (plate preferred)
We always leave room for exceptional players.
Our goal is to raid three nights: Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday. During progression we additionally add Monday as necessary. All raid times are 8pm-midnight EST. Invites are given out 15 minutes prior to raid start and all members are expected to be in the instance, ready, and on time for the raid beginning.
We are also currently running optional Looking for Raid and Ska runs on Tuesday nights. We intend to hold alt 25 or 10 mans on Monday evening when progression is complete.
