My better half (Druantiavale) and I recently transferred back to Zul'jin after being away for years. We left to be with friends & family on another realm and after the on/off play schedule we've had, we are back where it all began for us on this realm. What coincides with this is that we took a year and a half break from WoW following the release of Cataclysm because we thought it was horrible. We returned at the beginning of the year and are happily making our way through new content. I have been 90 for a while now and am capable of doing even 5.2 LFR with the Holy gear I have, yet Dru has just barely got the ilvl for MSV LFR.
While Dawn of the Dead is a great guild and they know what's up and know how to kick it, they took us in because I asked them to. I raided with DotD back in TBC days and I wanted comfortable surroundings in which to assimilate into the realm. I am sure that they and we knew that this was only temporary. They are hardcore, and we are not. I did TBC with them and raided WotLK with my guild on Eredar 3 nights a week but I can't handle it (hardcore content pushing) anymore and I don't think Dru would put up with me if I did.
We are looking for somewhere to call home. Somewhere with a lot of people, as we like active guild chat and grouping/raiding/xmog farming with our guild. We would like to be among people with similar ideals, putting their families and RL ahead of the game.
Personally, I am looking for this among people who are raiding current content two or three nights a week (8-11ish EST) but don't push incessantly over required progression through hard modes as that hardcore mentality puts too much strain on me. Not necessarily 25m but I would like to do more than LFR. I doubt Dru would, she never handled hardcore raiding well, but she helps out when she's needed and even when she's not. If you check out my paladin she's geared well enough for current 10/25n content without setting foot in HMs. With a few pushes, she could be very viable for 5.2 content. I push hard, and I learn fast, and I don't suck, which anyone from DotD that has ever raided with me will tell you.
I miss raiding, I want to be active and not benched, and Dru and I both want an environment filled with like-minded, helpful and interactive adult gamers. With us being new to the realm (even though we spent TBC here) we don't know a lot of guilds or even individual people.
Is there a guild out there for us? If its yours, we would love to know more. You can leave a message here or whisper me in-game. My BattleTag is Treehumper#1674
