About the Guild
Battle Hardened was created in the January of 2013 after multiple PVP guilds made their rise and fall due to internal corruption not that long before. Consisting of PVPers from these many guilds coming together under a single banner, Battle Hardened was created with the hopes of being able to PVP without the drama and destruction previously seen. From the beginnings of the guild, a sense of friendship has been our underlying tie that has kept us together, along with a desire to engage in PVP combat. Battle Hardened aims not only to slaughter the Alliance, but to have fun while doing so.
While our primary function is a PVP guild, we do not discriminate against those who don't like player vs player combat. We are open to anyone regardless of end-game goals, and have quite a few friends and family just around to have a chill place to hang out.
What can Battle Hardened offer you?
Battle Hardened prides itself in being welcoming to members, and we try our hardest to include everyone we can in guild activities. We work to know each other well, and many of us are friends we've met in our adventures on the battlefield.
As a guild we play in multiple different PVP environments, including RBGs, arenas, random BGs, and all around Azeroth with World PVP. Guildies are given priority in each of our groups, and we make sure that they are ready for the task at hand. We also run raids on the weekend for those interested, and try to do a bit of PVE to cap our guild challenges every week.
In addition to being a fun, social guild for people to hang out, Battle Hardened is a level 25 guild with all the perks of being such. We offer guild repairs for members, as well as multiple bank tabs with materials to gem and enchant your PVP gear.
Our RBGs are led by quality players that have earned ratings of 2.2k+ (without wintrading or other exploits). Our main group is comprised of people that want to push for rating. Try-outs or other skill tests will be held at the RBG leader's discretion to determine who will be in the group that goes for rating. These spots are not permanent, and can be changed.
We have a second group for the people that are interested. This group may or may not have gear/skill requirements, pending whether the group is for rating. Alt groups will also be held in order to help cap every week.
Arenas, and other PVP opportunities
If you are interested in arenas, we run guild groups daily for cap and for rating. There are multiple skilled players in guild currently looking for arena partners. In addition to arenas running throughout the day, we have groups of guildies running random battlegrounds and Call to Arms. At any time we might have groups dominating battlegrounds, and there is always room for more.
We also would like to begin some World PVP, ranging from taking over a small tavern to an all-out assault on the main Alliance cities in Azeroth. Once we get enough members we will be working on guild groups for For the Horde! and being an important force in the battle between the Horde and Alliance.
Whereas Battle Hardened is a guild with its main focus on PVP, we do understand that members might have interests outside the battlefield. We encourage members to run heroics, scenarios, and other PVE-related things for the guild challenges, and try not to stop members from raiding as long as it doesn't conflict with RBG times. Guild raids will be run for those interested in PVE, as long as a few basic requirements are met, such as the ability to follow directions. However, these guild raids and other PVE activities are not required, and will not be held against anyone if they choose not to take part.
Wyrmrest Accord is an RP server, so we also have members that dabble in RP. If enough interest is shown, a guild backstory will be created with assistance from the guild's RP community. Again, any RP participation is not required from the members, but it is encouraged.
Requirements for Membership
Because we are a primarily PVP guild, we do ask that you enjoy to PVP. However, we do not have membership restrictions based on gear, current or past ratings, class or spec. Everyone is welcome, whether you are here to push rating or just a casual player that occasionally likes to massacre some Gnomes. We do not, however, tolerate trolling RPers, griefing the Alliance, or being an overall jerk to the general population. Just because we enjoy slaughtering people does not mean we have to do it without class.
