<Technique> is a progression-oriented guild on Area 52, and it was founded by members of Akatsuki on Uldum. During Cataclysm, we acquired Realm First kills on Heroic Ragnaros and Heroic Madness of Deathwing at a time where Uldum was a medium-to-high population server, and much more competitive. With the launch of Mists of Pandaria came severe depopulation and a mass exodus of competitive players from Uldum to other servers, which eventually forced us to relocate and create <Technique> (formerly <Tickle my Pickle>) here on Area 52. Our efforts to rebuild left us lagging behind for the greater part of Tier 14 raiding, but now we are ready to get back to the cutting-edge progression we are used to, and aim to raid at the same pace as the best on our server.
Our guild is always open to exceptional raiders, even when a core raid spot cannot be offered, and we frequently raid on alternate characters, do previous content, and PvP on off-nights, often alongside other guilds. We seek to expand our guild to include multiple competitive raid groups in the future as well.

Loot is distributed by a 3-person loot council with a healer, tank, and DPS representing that council. The loot council will decide on the guild's current priorities and state them to the guild. These priorities may change week by week, but are likely to remain the same. When gear drops, the Master Looter will ask for those who want it for their main-spec to whisper them with the item(s) they wish to replace, and the loot will be awarded to the highest priority person. Item level difference, set bonus activation, raid attendance, and other factors will be considered. We expect all of our raiders to be generous to one another and settle gear competition with the entire team in mind, as progression – not loot – is our ultimate goal.
Any exceptional players who wish to apply to our core group must have considerable raiding experience, competitive gear, and proof of their capabilities and raid awareness via parses. Regardless of what is presented on your application, we will conduct our own research to check for accuracy and acquire additional information. That being said, exceptional players of all classes and specializations are encouraged to apply, regardless of whether the core group has a specific need for what you primarily play.
