You know Tiriel, if I weren't stuck in this splint for 4-6 weeks, I might apply for your guild. :P

Please don't take this the wrong way, because I don't mean it in a derogatory manner, but you don't have the heroic experience for us to accept an app you might put in. :-\ We really are only after people with at least some heroic experience. Preferably 10/13 or more (though I'm sure that we'd take people with less experience if the app was exceptionally good).

Since it was the first kill of Heroic Chicken for the guild I ran with last night, they put it up on YouTube.

Hai guiz! Watch me channel Tranq and not notice the Feed Young poop that spawned where I happened to be standing! >.<

She's right though. It's the same thing I told him, really. Applying to guilds like ours at the end of an expansion going into the final raid tier is almost impossible for someone with zero experience at all.

Fortunately, the boss had less than 10 mill health, so it didn't really matter, and having the raid leader constantly telling us to pop CDs right then made it a bit hard to hear my normal alerts.

But I still felt dumb for not noticing.

Just out of curiosity how is ur application process. Most high end guilds I seen have annoyingly long, irrelevant app processes.

But it's just my twisted opinion of course.

We just have an application that we fill out. We require people show us screenshots of UI, test their connection to the NY data center, and give us logs. The app is to show us who you are, why you are leaving your guild and joining ours, and that you know what the hell you're doing with your class.

All high end guilds have an application process similar. You might think that it's irrelevant, but it's all we have to go on when we're recruiting someone. An application can tell us a LOT about a person based on how well they fill it out.

Oh I get why it's done. Just some to me seem like going for the stars and beyond. Especially those who aren't 13/13H.

We want to know as much as possible about a new recruit before picking them up. We raid 25 hours a week right now, we don't want people who won't get along with us \ will cause conflict \ won't perform the way we need them do.

:P

I appreciate a solid application process. For one thing, I'm good at selling myself in print. :P It's my job, after all. xD For another it shows care, from the guild and from the applicants. I think if a player or a guild intends to raid seriously at any level, be it normals, full heroic clears, or anything in between, a well considered application is important to the success of that endeavor.

I really liked the application for the guild I am in now, and the fact that they read it, asked to see my UI, why I chose the talents I did, how I use my spells, etc. They aren't a world first guild nor will they ever be, but it's clear they put a lot of care and research into making sure things run smoothly from the get go.

Any guild that just invites you on a whim without any vetting process, be it a raid invite evaluation or a written application, kind of worries me.

A guild I was in had a an application process not to see if they would perform amazingly enough to push those Wrath Heroic raids but rather to see if they didn't mind a slower progression due to us not being hard core.

Oh, that and we also wanted to see if the applicants could use complete sentences. Answering questions with Yes, No and Grunt was pretty close to an automatic rejection and also stated in the application process. We still got a few that could only answer everything using one word.

I despise people who are like my ilvl is this can I just skip your application process I don't like filling out applications.

Idgaf if you are 13/13 heroic and your from blood legion if you can't take 20 minutes to fill out an application to let us know who are you and let us know you can put together sentences then I'm not wasting my time on you since you obviously can't be bothered to waste your time with us.
