Topic Guild Alliance
Who we are: The Lightsworn, (est. 11/25/2004) is a level 25 friends and family oriented guild of mature players that is looking to experience all that MoP has to offer and beyond. We have our own website (www.lightsworn.com) and a 30 seat Mumble voice chat. We have scheduled raids several days (Wed/Thur & Sat, 8pm server) a week. In addition to raids, we also do other activities such as dungeons and challenge modes.
The Lightsworn is looking to forge an alliance with other guilds. The goal of the alliance is to help bolster raid progression on current content. We recognize that the Silver Hand server is in the mid-tier of populations with many small guilds, which can make it difficult to recruit at times. As such, what better way to get around this than to make an alliance.
Of course, we are willing to entertain additions or mergers so to speak, but as stated, we are a mature minded guild. Feel free to register on our website (www.lightsworn.com) and send an email to Merloe or contact in game.

There are a lot of good, quality players on this server who could be much further along in progression if we weren't so fragmented. How many weeks have went by in this expansion with groups/guilds only able to field 5-7 core, quality raiders and either fumbling around with less-skilled, lower geared, inexperienced fill ins from the general guild roster, or pugging for whatever trade spamming dredges up?
Go to WoWrogress and check the guild rankings - there are nearly 20 guild groups all within the same basic 6/6, 2/6 0/6 range...conversely, check by character and there's gobs of well, geared, experienced toons...but we are all flying in different directions, rather than pooling our resources. It's the same story at Leftovers these days, too.
Raiders are getting tired of waiting around well past raid start times as the Raid Leads desperately search for 2-3 players who can actually help teams be successful, and even worse, calling off and cancelling due to lack of participation.
Silver Hand is not a dwindling server, it has a population of 86,000, over 8300 of which are level 90 ( http://wow.realmpop.com/us-silver-hand.html ). We have a small handful of successful raiding guilds on this server, but unfortunately, they only have so many spots available.
We are not asking people to jump ship and flock to our banner - we are simply trying to spark conversation between GM's and Raid Leads who are hitting this same brick wall and see if we can discover a solution together.
