Tired of drama, cliques and like a casual FUN ambiance? Cata is an older, mature player based guild that manages a balance between game/life.
Server: Earthen ring
So good they named an expansion for us!
Cataclysm is one of the long standing horde based guilds on Earthen Ring. We've been in business for almost eight years now with no plans to stop. We are a raid focused guild that is currently fielding 10-man teams.
We're currently looking for recruits of all classes and specs since we had a few raiders leave and/or quit game entirely and need to rebuild to full teams for 5.2. Multipe Raid spots available, be it healr, dps or Tank.
Our raids are scheduled between Tuesday through Monday. 8:45pm EST start time going to about midnight. Loot is handled through the EPGP system with players being awarded EP based off of the time they have committed towards raiding. Our raiding policy isn't strict, we don't require you to attend 100% of raids. Above all, real life is handled first!
We have a unique atmosphere that caters to the skilled, mature gamer. The guild is split into casual players who enjoy leveling toons and immersing themselves in gchat, to the highly skilled players who like to grind out new content. We have something for everyone.
The guild is managed by a team of officers who are committed to striking a happy balance between progress, enjoyment and real life. We are not only open to, but really want your suggestions and involvement in the health and progress of the guild. If you have any questions or concerns, contact any of the officers in-game or through this website by private message.

How we handle loot
Our goals with our loot rules are to get EVERYONE geared as quickly as possible, as fairly as possible. The sooner every raiders is geared, the quicker and further the entire guild progresses!
Cataclysm uses the EP/GP (Effort Points/Gear Points) loot system for our Official Raids. Of all the systems we've tested, we find it's the most fair, reliable and most straight-forward. Loot is awarded Main Spec first, going to the bidder with the highest PR (Point Ratio). If no one wants an item for Main Spec, it then goes to the person with the highest PR but no gear points are charged. That means off-spec is free loot that doesn't affect your EP/GP PR.

Required add-ons for Raiders
There are some add-ons we ask all raiders to have. The primary example being EPGP since it is required for loot distribution. We will link to them on Curse.com for ease and to be sure it's is exactly the correct one, but use whichever download site you prefer. Here's the add-on list:

Deadly Boss Mods -or- BigWigs (Boss fight information and situational awareness)
Mumble (Chat client used during raids - or to just socialize)
