Recovering Altoholics was formed on Bloodhoof late in the WOTLK expansion in anticipation of 10-man raiding in Cataclysm. In our first night of attempts we got Bloodhoof’s server-third Heroic Lich King (10 man) kill. We became Bloodhoof's premier 2-night/week progression guild.
We keep our raiding schedule fairly light, yet still maintain a high level of progression. We raid two nights a week - Wednesdays and Sundays from 8:30PM - 1:00 AM Eastern.
We are currently 8/14 Heroic. Due to members recently stepping down, we currently have openings in our core. Preference would be given to the following classes, though all are encouraged to apply:
<High> Resto Shaman
<High> Holy Pally
<<Any exceptional application will be considered.>>
Note: A raid-viable off-spec is always viewed as huge asset. We run with a small core of raiders to minimize time on the bench, so having flexibility within our core raid team is very beneficial.
Important: We are going to be working on heroics soon so we need dedicated core players to fill spots. As such, we are looking for someone who can step right into progression with us. That doesn't mean you have to be decked out in Full Heroic SoO gear, but we are looking for someone with at experience in most of the normal content and sufficiently geared to hold their own. We need players that research their class and know their mechanics, while not standing in fire.
We are also recruiting backups or people to possibly help fill out a second/alt raid group.
As far as expectations go, we fully expect all members to show up on time, ready to raid. We don't raid often so we like to make the most of the time we do have. All consumables are supplied by the guild. We utilize our forums during the time we are not raiding, which optimizes our time in the raid. Someone that would frequent the forums often, and contribute, is a huge plus.
The two most important things are knowing your class inside and out while still being fun to be around. We have an interesting dichotomy between having very high expectations of people while not wanting to be asses while we raid (we'd probably be one of those 4-5 night/week guilds otherwise). We want players who can perform near the limits of their class and are always looking for ways to push that limit, but who can also joke around while raiding. If you are the super serious type who cannot take a joke, this probably isn't the place for you. Likewise, if you cannot take constructive criticism, you need not apply. We want to be great raiders and have fun while doing so.
If you are interested in applying, please talk to Drzéus or any of our raiders in game, or drop by our forums: http://www.recovering-altoholics.com/
