Jan 8 ER Roleplay Guild Listing - 01/08/2017 The Earthen Ring RP Guild List was maintained many years by Shaw/Sullivan and later Gospel/Sinsolaria. With permission, I've started the thread anew to keep our server forums updated. The format (with a few adjustments) from the previous thread is used in this version to keep consistency. Credit for format is not my own. Post your guild info if you wish to be part of this list! Danke. ---- FORMAT Guild Name GM Short Description Recruiting: Open / Closed / Application Only RP Experience: Novice / Veteran / All RP Immersion: Complete / Voluntary / Casual Contact/PR: Name 1, Name 2, Name 3 http://www.yourguildwebsite.com http://www.us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/yourguildforumtopic ---- Extra Info About Format: Short Description. A tip on description: Keep it short! If people are interested by your blurb, then they can continue to your website or ER forum recruitment thread. Recruiting is the recruitment style of your guild. Open means that you /ginvite folks on the spot and/or recruitment is open. Closed means that you're not actively seeking new members, but may snatch up a brilliant star if you happen across one. Application Only means candidates can only join your guild via an application process. If there is another method of recruitment you use, please include it but also explain it a bit so folks know how to join. RP Experience is what kind of roleplayers you are generally looking for. Novice means you'll accept the greenest greenhorn. Veteran means you prefer experience. All means you welcome folks from all levels of experience. Like with recruitment style, if you have another way of describing this, please go for it! But include a small explanation. RP Immersion is how heavy roleplay in your guild is. Complete means you RP whenever you're in the game - your guildchat, your parties, your say/emotes are all in-character all the time. Voluntary means people RP when and where they want to, but are more often In-Character than not. Casual means you occasionally RP, but are equal parts out-of-character and in-character. Contact/PR are your go-to members for recruits to contact when/if they decide to join your guild. In addition to your Guild Website address, you can also include any recruitment or info thread you posted on the ER Battle.net forums. (Definitely recommended so you can keep all your resources in one spot!) If there are any additions/adjustments you'd like to make to the format, go for it, but remember to keep it brief. The long write up can come with your recruitment thread or website!Arialynn54 Jan 8

8h [A] Lunatic Friends LFM, cross guild welcome! Hello Earthen Ring! Lunatic Friends has raided as a guild in every tier since the Trial of the Crusader. We're a family friendly guild with players ranging from their teens to their sixties, with most falling in the late twenties to early thirties. We try to maintain a PG-13ish atmosphere in guild chat as well as in vent. We raid Wednesday and Thursday, 8pm till 11pm server time. Our current progression is 7/7 H, 3/3 H and 4/10 H. Our first priority is a tank. We have several members who tank as an off spec but we're looking for another raider for whom tanking is their first choice role. We’re also open to healers and DPS who are a good cultural fit. We’ll be running farm/gear up nights on Sunday evenings at 8pm server time for the next few weeks, beginning next Sunday March 5, so if you’re not yet geared for Heroic Nighthold that is by no means a dealbreaker! Also not a dealbreaker is guild membership. We know quitting a guild where you have friends and memories is not something everyone wants to do and we’re happy to take members who want to raid without leaving their WoW home. What we do need: Preparation! Watch a video, read a guide, do whatever it is you do to make sure you know what to expect. We also expect everyone to have consumables ready and gems and enchants taken care of in advance, but we have a lot of members who are very much on top of their professions and who like helping out the team, so we strongly discourage members from spending gold on raid prep without asking around for help or checking the GB first. (As one of the keepers of enchanting mats gathered in raids, I can’t stress this enough: please ask! Unless you’re cross realm, in which case the last vestiges of the server based economy prevent us from assisting. GG Blizz.) If you’d like to give us a try you can reply here or message me, Yvandis, Åz or Laalia in-game.Cylthia0 8h
1d Looking for some PVP folks! Hi all! I know Earthen Ring is not a hotbed of PVP, but it's what I'm enjoying in the game right now - and I'd love to find a guild and/or a group of people who are interested in learning the Arena/RBG game with me and competing at a casual level. Ideally this would be an existing group I could join, as I'm not sure I have the time to commit to organizing, but if you're a solo player who's interested definitely still leave a reply :)Naeroryn0 1d

1d <Catch Phrase> 1/7M 3/3H 9/10H 6hrs/wk raids If you are interested in raiding with us, please contact an officer (contact info at bottom) Our current recruitment needs: rDPS Any exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of recruitment needs. We raid Tues/Wed 8:30-11 EST during progression, never past 11pm. Catch Phrase is a semi-casual raiding guild on Earthen Ring Horde. We are incredibly laid back, though many of our members have raided hardcore progression in the past, and some even in US top 100. We are a fun group of mostly recent grads, who like to have fun, and enjoy each other’s company. Our community also spreads to other games such as LoL and Diablo. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What we expect: Due to our shortened raid week, we expect all raiders to come to raid fully aware of fight mechanics, and knowledge of how to perform on a high-end level. We absolutely expect to use every bit of those seven hours to go to progression, and we expect every raider to want the same. We want our raiders to be on time, and able to stay for the entire 3 hour night. Some nights we may go over, if we’re really close to a kill. This will never extend further than 15-20 minutes past 11. Our members are not easily offended, and we expect you to be the same. If kids are present, we strongly recommend a headset, as we will not censor ourselves. Every member of the raid team needs to be able to follow directions, whether they be established jobs in an encounter or on-the-fly commands issued by another member of the raid. We expect every raider to be able to conquer any mechanic, and very quickly. Mistakes happen, but standing in fire four times consecutively is not a mistake. We also expect our raiders to be proactive during encounters as apposed to reactive; if you see something that needs to be soaked, you shouldn't be waiting for someone to call it out. Most importantly: Have fun, and enjoy yourself. We will shift to 20m Mythic team with a similar progression-oriented mindset. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone looking to apply can head over to our website at Catchphrase.enjin.com and fill out an application. If you have any questions add Andy (Oromiselda#1537), Gurio (Zombie240#1387), or Lord Pigga in-game. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Current Roster Guild Website: Catchphrase.enjin.com Kill videos with multiple PoVs can be found at: http://catchphrase.enjin.com/forum/m/11218831/viewthread/28273526-legacy-kill-videos/post/last#last Logs can be found at: http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/200968/ And yes, we do have many people who pet battle competitively.Gurio267 1d
3d Call Of The Scarab - Alliance Is there a decently large group that has someone picked out to collect the Abyssal Crests? I'm going to be doing these quests pretty regularly on a couple characters and would rather not waste them.Richker5 3d
4d <Ashes of the Phoenix> 7/7H 3/3H 3/10H LFM ... <Ashes of the Phoenix> is looking for players who are interested in the following: Mythic+ dungeon progression (multiple groups with different schedules) Progression (Heroic) and/or casual (Normal) raiding Karazhan (multiple groups with different schedules) Casual PVP (Battlegrounds, etc) Must be 18+ years old Must use Discord for voice communication during group activities About Us: Our guild was established in Warhammer Online, and since then we have played various games together, including Guild Wars 2, Rift, SWTOR, Elder Scrolls Online, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, and Diablo 3. Many of us work full-time (average age is mid-30's) and can no longer commit to hardcore raiding progression due to out-of-game responsibilities. However, that doesn't stop us from having fun and clearing content when we are together! Even though we are on an RP server, we unfortunately do not participate in RP activities. Who We Are Looking For: We are looking for "midcore" players who play for fun, but also take the time to min/max their characters. Since we all have busy lives outside of the game, we are building a community of players that give 110% to maximize their performance. Guild Expectations: Demonstrate consistent character progression (login throughout the week) Be on the US-Earthen Ring server (already there or transferred) Have Discord downloaded and working Ensure gear is fully enchanted and gemmed before raid Prepare throughout the week for boss encounters and follow directions from the raid leader Arrive on time for raids (at least 10-15 minutes early to be invited and travel to the raid location) Integrate into the guild (group with guild members, help others when they ask) Raid Information: Progression: Sundays at 2:00 PM EST (roster spots are not guaranteed and selected based on performance during Thursday's raid) Casual/Farm: Thursdays at 8:00 PM EST (also used to evaluate roster for Sunday raids) How to Apply: In order to be invited to the guild, the following steps must be completed: Interview with guild recruiter (Milleuda#1730) to see if interests match Attend a Thursday night raid for evaluation Transfer to the Earthen Ring server If you are interested in learning more about us, add Milleuda#1730 to your bnet friends list. We look forward to playing with you!Elhaym5 4d

6d [H] Story Night (RP) - Tuesdays 8pm EST FYRP: Shaw (Me!) is hosting Story Night @ Thunder Bluff (Central Rise) from 8pm to 9pm-ish, Tuesday the 21st This is an open, no-hassle rp event that is open to all. Stories are not mandatory, so sitting in is ok! It's also a good way of getting to know other Horde RPers in character. Upcoming Locations/Dates: --------------------------------------- 02/28 - TBA ================================= Note: If no one gathers by 8:15pm, cancellations may occur. We'll go past 9:00 as needed, if not, open RP can start and the event will break camp - feel free to stay and RP afterward! Greetings all, For quite a few years now, I have been hosting the weekly "Story Night" aka "Tears Tuesday" Hordeside. For many, this is the first RP event folks see or experience. For all those that have come over the years, I appreciate you all taking the time to stop by and listen, being supportive and maybe share a story or two. One of the cornerstones of RP is respect. As RP seems to be seen as the "Wild West" as far as any "official" rules, respect for others is crucial for the RP community to grow and have fun. We all are in a RP community, whether we admit it or not. It's also a social outlet as well, which means the respect part of RP is all that much more needed in working together. I run a simple and civil rp event for a reason. The main goal is to have a no-pressure rp event and to have fun. The premise is simple - and was made like that by choice and design. A welcome event for both RPers and Non-Rpers to enjoy some stories and role-playing. The event is an example that: 1) RP is alive on Earthen Ring (For the naysayers that think otherwise.) 2) RPers are people too, and some great ones at that. (For those that believe stereotypes.) 3) RPing can *gasp* be fun. (For those that think RP is a waste of time.) All I do is host and organize, without those that come, it's nothing - so I thank you all. Thanks to the < Tears of Draenor > and the ooc rper channel forthehorde as well for the support as well behind the scenes. Also thanks to Ilemnemis for hosting the reboot of the old "Tears Tuesday" years ago before I was host. Stay safe and Godspeed. "Shaw"Shaw230 6d
6d Level 70 Twink Raiding Guild [Active] Name: The Búrning Crusaders Acceptable Races: - Currently, all races are acceptable. Accepted Classes: - All (currently) - I have not looked into how classes such as the Death Knight and Monk function in a raiding environment at level 70, we may find since gear is not tunned specifically for either that they prove to be underpowered….however, we may also find since they are newer classes not originally from TBC that they over excel! If you want to try them out, do so, and we can see how it goes :) Accepted Levels: - 1 to 70 - If you are below 70, you are of course welcome in the guild and we shall help you level through outland to get to the cap! There will usually be others around your level doing the same. - We do NOT take anyone higher than 70, even alts. This is to prevent any carrying or unbalance. BoA?: -BoA is a great tool to get your levels fast, and I recommend using it if you have it so you can jump into our raids ASAP! But, once you hit 70 you must replace the BoA with normal gear from heroics, quests, crafts etc etc. We do not really want BoA in raids, or at least want 90% of your gear to be non-BoA. If you need help getting gear, just ask :) Main Focus: - TBC Progression Raiding, our main goal is to play as if we are back in the good old days of TBC! - Possibly TBC based RP (side focus) - Profession Leveling up to TBC Main Rules: - On reaching level 70, you must to go to Stormwind Keep and find ‘Behsten’ the ‘Experience Eliminator’ and lock yourself at level 70. - You MUST follow level cap rules, as there will be no ‘carrying’ through raids to get armour. It will be a group effort. We raid as a guild, not taken through by a 90 so we can shoot ahead with gear. The fun is in doing the raid, getting the gear, enchanting etc…not shooting to the top and being the best. - No outside professions. You may SEND mats to your TBC alt, they have to make them! *important* - it is forbidden to buy your character 70 PvP equipment to use in-raid. Any item that has a PvP stat on it that does not come from one of the raids will be dismissed and you will be asked to replace it. We are, at the moment, PvE orientated and I do not want any ilvl boosting via PvP gear. You are of course, able to buy your character PvP armour/weapons at your discretion to use in non-raid related activities. But they will have no weight on your raid tier rank etc. Ranks: (See ‘Raids’ for tier and ilvl info.) - Overlord – The Guild Leader - Dungeon Master – People tasked with leading raids, setting dates and handing out loot. - Tier4 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 4 raiding, able to apply to become a dungeon master. DM’s also server as guild officers. - Tier3 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 3 raiding. - Tier2 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 2 raiding. - Tier1 Raider – Someone who is geared enough to join in on Tier 1 raiding. - Gearing – Someone who is recently new to the guild and needs help gearing and raising their ilvl to the first raid requirements. This can be done via outland questing, and TBC Heroic dungeons! - Within the guild, there will be ranks set up to ensure people who understand the rules and the raid are leading raid teams. Remember, we are not face-rolling anymore so mechanics matter! As well as distributing loot and whatnot, we may implement in a dragon kill point system, but it will all depend on what people want and think! Raids & Gear Score Guide: (Raids must be completed by each raider in the order below to progress.) Tier 1: - Karazhan, 10man. Ilvl: 105-115 - Magtheridon's Lair, 25man. Ilvl: 115-120 - Gruul’s Lair, 25man. Ilvl: 120-125 Tier 2: - Tempest Keep, 25man. Ilvl: 125 -130 - Serpentshrine Cavern, 25man. Ilvl: 128 -130 Tier 3: -Battle for Mount Hyjal, 25man. Ilvl: 130 – 145 - Black Temple, 25man. Ilvl: 134 – 150 Tier 4: - Sunwell Plateau, 25man. Ilvl: 150+ Profession Caps: All professions must be capped at 'Master' (375 skill points). Times: - We are currently raiding on the 26th, between 8:30pm-9.00pm - We have heroics scheduled in between raids at the same times If you wish to join, add DarkAposte#2319 and PM me asap so we can get you sorted for our up coming raid night :) You can also leave your in game contact info below if you wish, and I will mail you.Khadromars62 6d
6d H Weekend 10/10H 1/10M lf rdps & Rogue Fluffy Kittens is a Zul'jin weekend guild who is looking for new raiders to complete our raid team for heroic and mythic. The guild formed with veteran friends returning to the game and looking to form their own raid team to tackle progression. Our leadership (myself included) has top US 50 raid experience in past raiding tiers. We do not view ourselves as a self defined hardcore or semi hardcore raiding guild, but rather a group of friends looking to have a good time while killing bosses in a quick organized manner. We are structuring our raid group in a way, that allows us to raid on a relaxed 2 day schedule while still progressing. In order to achieve this we are seeking highly skilled players, who have good attendance. We won't waste your time, so dont waste ours by not showing up. Progression: 10/10N 10/10 H 1/10M Expectations: We expect raiders to show up to most raids, and if they know they are going to be unavailable for a raid night that they let us know ahead of time. Healers and DPS are expected to know their stat weights, rotations, and pull according numbers appropriate for their item level (we will work with you, but you have to put in majority of the effort). Flasks and food will be given by the guild IF said raider donates materials to the bank. Raid Times: 8-11 EST Sat & Sun with optional loot run on Friday *Note potential trials are often required to go to the Friday run* This is in order for us to better analyze logs from you, and see how you perform mechanics wise before being brought into progression. Loot: Going into Night Hold we are using a loot council style system. Raiders will be rotated in every week to participate. More information can be discussed about this upon meeting each other. We are actively seeking these classes and roles. Tanks: dps w/ tank OS Healers: Discipline Priest Druid DPS: Melee: Rogue Range: Open If your class or role isn't listed contact us anyway, exceptions can always be made based on performance. Contact info: Reply on our recruitment thread or add the following btags to get in contact with an officer.

Like the Stormwind Guard, the CID operates on both internal and external fronts - it has a presence within the city watching from the back of the crowd, and deep within hostile territories, cultivating its close working friendship with the Guard and Brigade Military to quickly strike and effectively keep everyone safe. The Magical Department is the arcane might of the Brigade and manages the diplomatic ties between the Brigade (as well as to some extent the Alliance) and the City-State of Dalaran, it is headed by Archmage Khadromars Spellweaver. The key task of the Magic Department is to offer guidance to both the Guard, the Guild Council and the Alliance when needed. It has multiple roles, from fighting with the Armed Forces to cover them on the battlefield, assisting the Guard with dangerous enemies of the state who take up residence in the city. The other aspect of the MD is to take in Kirin Tor recruits and help train them on the field, as well as tracking down, securing and locking away objects deemed to dangerous to be left out in the world. Come Legion, the Brigade has a complex and fun storyline planned that will take it across Azeroth and the new zones, entering the dungeons and raids ICly to conquer the Legion and undermine its plot. We will be spouting a powerful member base and an established Council to lead us into the new expansion! History: As many know, the Royal Lions Brigade started out as the Conjurers Court a little over 7 years ago and quickly became one of the major players within the community. Archmage Kelsus Hadson, former Kirin Tor emissary, resigned his mantle to the city-state of Dalaran and joined the Alliance in Stormwind. The Court managed magical affairs within the Kingdom and policed the misuse of the magical arts with the aid of its member base, keeping the people of Azeroth safe. Under the first years, the Conjurers Court took control and command of Westbrook Garrison, the stronghold of Elwynn forest making use of it as the orders headquarters that carries onto the present day. Eventually, the Court decided to change its direction and merge with the Stormwind Guard - becoming more military active in the wider world and changing its name to the Alliance Protectorate. From here, the guild ventured out into Pandaria to fight the looming threat of the Sha and aid the recovery of the Pandaren people from the war that had come to their lands. This went on for many months, before finally the decision was made to once again remake ourselves and join the best of both the Court and the Alliance Protectorate together - a magical Council with the wisdom and knowledge of many great Dalaran Archmagi, and the military prowess and strength of powerful commands and tacticians. From this the Royal Lions Brigade was founded under the firm leadership of its Commander, Kelsus Hadson. Now, the Brigade stands as a pillar of both knowledge and power against any foe that would seek to destroy the mighty Alliance, or harm her people, whilst also offering kinship and a place to call home to any interest in furthering their cause. Our Leaders: Commander: - Archmage Kelsus Hadson Chancellor: - Archmage Barbro McGinty High Council: - Archmage Khadromars Spellweaver - Regent Rappa Ranger - Jurar (The Mystical Panda) Council: - Director Jiwa Cranktopple - Cedrey Winterfang - Garrikk Where to join? http://royal-lions-brigade.enjin.com/recruitmentKhadromars8 Feb 8

Feb 4 [A] Official <Sacred> thread: 7/10 Heroic NH! New exp, new thread. Many thinks to everyone who helped make HFC as fun and rewarding as possible (especially given the end of exp content lull). OK, below is our guild spam. At the moment we're not actively looking for raiders, but if you want to play with a team that will push content, we have a group that is competition based and a spot can be yours if you can take it. ... Looking forward to many fun times over the course of this exp!!!Desiderio14 Feb 4
Feb 1 Where will your last logout take place? This is kinda stolen from a recent reddit thread, but what will be the place you choose to put your character one final time? Will it be the grave your Forsaken climbed out of? The forests of Ashenvale? The Stockade? Looking for both non-RP and RP responses to this. Eventually there will be one last day that comes around where you choose to send your characters off. Or even perhaps a day that the Warcraft servers eventually shut down. I'll kick it off with Kanta. I'll probably place Kanta off in Feathermoon. Due to the IC reasons of his character and just how awesome of a military encampment it is. I think it's a proper send off for his character and one last spot to see before I say goodbye to a familiar face.Kanta9 Feb 1

Jan 30 *[H] Exodus LFM for H NH! 5 open spots!* Hello All! TL:DR; 7/7H 2/3H 8/10N Current Roster: 25/30 spots - 5 open! Hello All! TL:DR; LF Casual Guildies, Mythic + members, Raiders. Normal/Heroic Guild (not doing Mythic- we took a step back from the heavy grind - lots of part time members with kids, hectic schedules so a great flexible place to be!) Raiders: All talent encouraged to apply. Ranged is a huge need to round us out and we could work to add a tank if needed as well. Heals are full at this time but an OS heal could also be worked in. Mythic +: Anyone interested! Community: Also anyone that would love a helpful home! Do not hesitate if you just changed classes/roles. We absolutely will work with you to play the character you desire. That is what this game is about and we are not going to put a damper on your parade :) Great home for casuals, groups of friends, those looking for a relaxing fun home or need a flexible group in case they need a night off! Info: Exodus-EarthenRing (7/7H, 2/3H, 8/10N) has many members of our guild that have played since Vanilla together and traveled across Azeroth in varying guilds and competitive levels. The GM, myself, and a few others decided at the end of Mists with Flex Raiding becoming available in 2 difficulties that we want to take a step back and play with our GM’s Dad again! With so much family/friends lost and split over the years, bringing all of us back to one spot has been amazing! We’ve even picked up 3-4 different groups in the same position and allowed them to play with their family/friends again without the worries of being cut! We came back to our home guild, Exodus, in 2013 and have created a casual/flexible team that sponsors coaching above cutting raid members, flexible schedule allowing for nights off no consequences, and we even have guild events and giveaways! Our most recent was FunkoPop Illidan’s for the release of Legion! Raid times are as follows: Wed, Thur, Mon 8:30pm EST - 11:30pm EST Note: 8:30-9:00 invites, 1st pull at 9:00 Would like to add scheduled Mythic + days Look forward to hearing from you! :+: Smushez :+: http://exodus.er.shivtr.com/ http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/earthen-ring/Exodus Btag: Smushiz#1660 Email: kaycadilla@hotmail.com Discord: Smushiz#4925 (Quickest Reply) GM: Spahfee Officers: Smushez, EvertaiSmushez6 Jan 30

Jan 27 [H] Dark Honour Guild LF DPS <Dark Honour> Server: Earthen Ring US Faction: Horde Time Zone: Primarily Eastern and Central US Who are we: We are an adult guild created so we can play, raid and see content on our own schedule without the demands of a truly hardcore guild. We all have families, careers or both. Careers in both Fire and EMS, Military, Banking, Teaching, IT and much more. Our end raiding goal is currently Heroic content. Who we're looking for: We are looking for adult players (21+ or 18+ with a reference from a current member) of all play-styles. We expect those who wish to raid with us to put effort into developing their characters both in and out of raid content. You should be able to carry your own weight and not be carried by the guild. We don't expect you to be a min-maxing hardcore theory-crafter, but don't settle for the minimum either. What you can expect: Dedicated leadership in a family and career friendly environment. We consider ourselves to be an excellent guild for those in the military and public service who play World of Warcraft and want to be a regular part of a progression raid team. We also consider ourselves to be an excellent guild for those with small children who wish to progress, but can not commit to every scheduled raid due to the time a child requires and the unexpected events that occur when you have a small child. We do not hold attendance, or a lack thereof, against our members. We have no class or spec requirements. Our members play the class and spec they wish to play. The only restriction being that we obviously wont have 7 tanks or 12 healers on a progression attempt. Raid Schedule: We will raid 2 nights per week for a total of 6 hours per week. The nights we use will be Tuesday/Friday/Saturday 8-11pm EST. The schedule will rotate between those 3 days on about a 3 week cycle. All raid will be posted well in advance so everyone will know which raid cycle we are on. Current Raid Needs: We are currently in need of DPS both ranged and melee. Off-spec of heal/tank is always a plus, though not required. We currently have 2 Shaman DPS so we would prefer non-shaman. Raid Goal: Our goal is to be running Heroic EN the first week of January at the latest. We want to be working on Heroic ToV in February and preparing Nighthold when that releases. Mythic raiding is not currently on our list of goals. IF we have enough players that are interested, then and only then will we consider moving onto mythic. Loot System: We use the Suicide Kings loot system. We will be utilizing the addon KnoferSK to assist with this. Allowing players to see in real time their place on the list for both main spec and off spec. A little more info: We try to be a friendly and welcoming guild to all players. We are understanding when unexpected things arise with family and work preventing attendance and we do not hold that against our members. Outside of raiding we want to run 5 mans during the week so we can help the non-raid members of the guild and raise guild funds for repairs and consumables. We also like to go back and earn guild achievements from old content in an attempt to give members other things to besides raid. Questions can be left here or directed to either of the officers listed below. I will do my best get back with anyone interested ASAP. Thank you for considering Dark Honour and happy hunting!

Jan 26 [H] Small guild recruiting 5 man Mythic Hi! We have a very small guild looking for a few others to focus on 5 man mythics. We are in need of a healer and one dps. We are three RL friends in our 30's. We take the game fairly serious while having fun. Just want to dedicate Sunday evenings (central time) to 5 man mythics. You really don't have to join our guild. We'd rather not have to pug. Reply if interested. Thanks.Succulent1 Jan 26
Jan 26 Wanting to gauge interest on Legacy Raiding! Wanting to see the interest of a guild that runs 'legacy raiding' starting from 70 through possibly 100. The guild will restrict item levels, professions, and other future expansion items that are not from our focused raiding expansion. Each expansion will run about 4 to 6 months. All content should be cleared at that time. A set date will announce the end of level lock and all members level to and through next expansion. No characters over the guilds focused expansion level will be allowed. Want to see if it would be better on alliance or horde side and also if any active guilds currently do that here. Please comment and let me knowEanirlii0 Jan 26

Jan 23 Looking for Guild Hi, I've recently returned from a two year hiatus and just getting back into the game. I'm looking for a casual, friendly guild. I'm not a raider, but I'd be willing to learn on my lower level toons that are on ER (Mozzle my goblin mage and Mandora my rogue troll) or even on Pyrela even though my ilevel isn't great. I do like doing dungeons. I primarily quest and travel around. I'm still learning all the changes. Thanks!Pyrela1 Jan 23

Jan 18 The Never Ending Thread.. It's been about six years since the last one.. I think it's time to bring it back. This is the thread that never ends..Jarrick20 Jan 18
Jan 16 Looking for Heroic Raid Guild Hello, I am a Prot Pally right here on Earthen Ring. Until recently (very recently actually) I have been working very hard to recruit for a Heroic raid team for Dark Honour. We lost a few members over the last few days while I was working and seems it would be better for the members of my guild... my friends, that I change the goal of my recruiting. Instead of finding new members for Dark Honour, I would like to find a new guild for my members. We want to see and complete Heroic Raid content with a group of people that we can one day call friends and not just guild mates. We work hard to be successful both in the raid and out of the raid. Every week we tackle Mythic + and help anyone who asks... not just guild members. When we need to PuG an additional spot for Mythic dungeon groups we always choose the player with the lowest ilvl on the list because we feel they would receive the greatest benefit from our group. When we raid, we like to have fun. We want this to remain a game and not a job. We strive for success, take/give construct criticism when needed to help the group the as a whole. We want nothing more than to be successful as a raid team and a guild, while still being able to have fun. We would prefer a guild that raids 1-2 nights/week with one of those nights being a weekend, going no later than 11 pm EST. We are all adults, the youngest of us being 27. We are mature, have families and careers. The Class/ Roles we have are Prot Pally, Holy Priest x2 (One working on a Holy Paladin), Monk Heal/DPS (Prefers Monk healing but has many classes and specs to choose from), and a Mage. Potentially a DPS DH may make the move as well. We have all completed EN/ToV on LFR, most have done EN N and as a guild after just one 2 hour night we achieved 3/7 N 1/7 H and got H Ursoc to 35% before losing. I would like to keep us together as much as possible, but I also know that many guilds already have their teams established and need specific roles. Please Let me know if anyone is willing to take in my friends and give them a new place to call home. Thank you for taking the time to read this and considering us a potential addition to your guilds family. Xaqshnr#1186Kanicus4 Jan 16
Jan 8 New to the Earthen Ring RP? Start Here! Introduction Welcome to Earthen Ring! We are one of the older RP realms, going live back in November 2004.

There's good people here on Earthen Ring, whether they RP or not. :) See below for some useful stuff! Updated: 06/07/16Sullivan110 Jan 8
Jan 6 [Journal] Marshal Jarrick Mason Shattered Mind, Severed Soul, and the Long Road to Redemption ---------- Jarrick closed the heavy oak door behind him as he entered his quarters, his mind very visibly elsewhere. A dim candle, the only source of light left burning in the room, caused shadows to dance, playing tricks on the wall and ever so slightly illuminating the bronze pendulum that swung back and forth in this late hour. Alone in the silence, save for the sound of the restless clock. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He walked over to the table and set the white pawn down on it. He turned away without giving it as much of a glance and ran plated fingers though his beard as he thought about the events that transpired tonight. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Subconsciously, his gaze found its way to the white pawn, but his thoughts did not change. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He turned towards the keg in the corner; untouched since the night prior. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He turned on his heel and paced across the room. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He exhaled deeply, sinking into the chair at the table, still deeply consumed in his thoughts. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... His gaze wandered back to the white pawn and his mind turned over the words that Sielic repeated in his cell before they left him at his own request. "Tyrilyna... How could I have done this to you..." The sentence echoed through his head for what seemed like an eternity, trying to find some semblance of peace.. of redemption. Something. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He ran plated fingers through his hair as his mind continued to wander. "Sielic, old friend.. Do you remember who I am?" The look on Sielic's face was a look that he would never forget for the rest of his days. "...I remember everything." Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He found himself sitting with his jaw locked as he turned the nights events over in his mind. He was not the only one that fought to bring Sielic back from the terrible fate which had befallen him, but even he couldn't predict this outcome. They had recovered his mind, body, and soul alike, but it was not without a heavy price tag. One which he was not entirely certain could ever be repaid. His eyes made their way back to the white pawn; the idol that Ravaji had given him after Caelryn had surrendered it. A symbol of hope? Of redemption? A second chance, perhaps? It was meant to be a symbol of something, but he could not decipher it. Sielic was supposed to be redeemed, not damned. Celebrated for his selfless act, not confined to a cell to suffer his transgressions. Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... Tick... Tock... He ran both of his plated hands through his hair, clasping his hands behind his head, his gaze still lingering on the white pawn. Only time could remedy what plagued Sielic now.. and he could only hope that time was enough. ---------- Continued in 'The Legion Comes'Jarrick11 Jan 6
Jan 6 Characters of Earthen Ring It's been a while since we've had an updated list of characters on Earthen Ring and it's high time that changed. Feel free to post as much or as little as you'd like about the background of your character. There is no specific template to follow, and you can be as detailed or as vague as you would like, so just give us a little glimpse into the life of your character and how they became the person that they are today! I'll kick it off in the next post.Jarrick2 Jan 6
Jan 5 [Diary] A Small Red Book [Entry 1] The handwriting is neat, each draenic letter written with a slow, heavy hand. My aunts recommended that I write because seeing the words and writing them out might help me with my stammer, but I am not so sure. I have the same problem writing. It is like my thoughts are interrupted, like my brain gets filled with sounds. Even writing the words seems slow. I have to stop and look at them again. Refocus my attention with each letter. I was never a very good writer either. My mom always said it was because my head was full of the human's common. That I had lost so much draenic. She died on the Broken Shore. I did not see it happen. But I was right there, unconscious. She saved me. An infernal broke my back, one I could not hear coming for all the noise. My shield did nothing. The Light did nothing. I felt the barrier buckle, and the pain of my back being shattered just above my tail. I can still feel it. It is white hot. Like someone slapped a band of molten iron around my waist and it just burned and burned into me. Then I could not feel anything. I still can not really feel anything. I remember my mom holding me on that black beach and saying over and over again "please, Lieke." I held her hand with all the strength I could and she almost laughed: that kind of relief that is so completely overwhelming you can only laugh. I remember her dragging me, the dark skin of her face darker with soot. But that's it. I did not see her die but her death is burned into my memory like that white hot blow that broke my back. Her name is in that memorial in Stormwind. And I lived. Woke up in a hospital tent of injured soldiers. A night elven woman said I was healed, but I still could not feel my legs. I still can not walk. My aunts say it is because my body is healed but my mind is not. They say I should not have gone to the Broken Shore. I was too young. That now I have to win a very different fight than that of the Legion. But I just wanted to be with my mother. To show I could fight by her side. That I was an adult, and not some naive child being taken advantage of by the human Church of the Light. I still do not feel like a child. I just feel helpless like one. Like I was broken in two on that black shore. I love my aunts. They have looked after me without question when they discovered I had been injured and my mother killed. They seem much more calm about it than I am. They said it is to be expected: you live a violent life, even a noble one in defense of your people, you are likely to die a violent death. It just feels like injustice to me. They say the cosmos are inherently unjust. My faith is shaken. Not shaken, broken in two - like me. The Light failed me and it failed my mother. It failed so many on that shore. The Light was supposed to be unbreakable. It was supposed to be love in the face of hatred. It was the warmth in Northrend, the shield of Draenor against the Burning Crusade. It was the protector and saviour of my people, but where was it on that beach? Why did it break in the face of such implacable hatred? Aunt Veerke is a monk. She says power comes from within; that for her, it is only her spirit against the entire might of the cosmos and every injustice it might throw at her, and for her that is enough. I try to meditate with her, but the last time I tried I snuffed out the candle somehow and that seemed to unsettle her. My aunt Verusha draws strength from the world. She says the elements help her to stand against the Legion. The water's calm, the earth's rage, the fire's speed, the air's changeability. But for me it was always the Light. It was always there, always warmth, always light against the dark that would swallow it up - that unceasing void of a night sky could not withstand the Light. Or so I thought. I want to help the Templars again. I remember the Templars as a force of good. Not of a force obedient to the law, like so many priests and officers of Stormwind wanted them to be. Arialynn always knew there was a difference between law and justice, and knew the law was not always good. She - and the other Templars - practiced a kind of good that I admired. That I was a part of, for a little while. My aunts don't think it's a good idea. The Templars fight and I should not fight - can not fight. But I still want to help. My stone still works. I have spoken to some of them. I even met with Blackwald. He lost his ship and an eye on the broken shore. But he has no stammer. He had a strength to persevere through what he saw and experienced. I wish I had that strength. He told me that Arialynn had been married - then lost her husband on the shore. She has children now, but still fights. I guess like my mom. That is hard to write for some reason. I think I should help her, but I do not know how. She probably does not even need my help. My mom never did.Lieke1 Jan 5
Jan 4 [A/RP] <Templars of the Rose> Update 02/22/2017 ---- Greetings, Earthen Ring! Templars of the Rose and its Hordeside counterpart, Blood of the Rose is a cross-faction, multi-game roleplay guild that combines world roleplay, storylines, events, PvP, and raiding to create an immersed and fun game experience. The guild was founded on October 3rd, 2007 on Earthen Ring-US and continues in WoW and other games today. We are primarily Alliance but have a sister Horde guild to advance our WoW storyline. Out-of-Character: About Us Our guild is a close-knit circle of folks from all walks of life. Ages range from 22 - 60+ and roleplay/gaming experience ranges from beginner to veteran. We take all roleplay experience types and our main recruitment caveat is this: No-fun OOC drama out, fun IC drama in. We'll take mature roleplay novices over dramatic roleplay veterans, every time. We're also more than happy to teach new roleplayers the ropes. In-Character: Roleplay Our roleplay varies from campaigns with world PvP and LFR, smaller character-driven storylines, and light-hearted recurring events such as the Harbor Market. Typically, Templars fight in battles across Azeroth (and beyond), hoping to keep the world safe for non-combatants at home, and maybe kicking back in the tavern at the end of the day. Up till Mists of Pandaria, Templars of the Rose was neutral toward the Horde-Alliance war, preferring to rally against world-ending causes such as the Burning Legion, Scourge, Deathwing, and other global threats. However, with the rise of Garrosh Hellscream and destruction of Theramore (where the Rose's primary operations were based), the Templars declared war to oust him as warchief. Since the younger Hellscream's fall, the Rose has again distanced itself from Alliance and Horde skirmishes and found a new home in the Howling Fjord, Northrend. It now rises to battle against the Burning Legion's tide in the Broken Isles. The Templars are battle-hardened warriors and specialize in front-line wars. Also neutral, its sister-side Horde guild, Blood of the Rose found itself at odds with Garrosh Hellscream's aggressive anti-Alliance stances. The order was forced into hiding to avoid Hellscream's Kor'kron agents rooting out dissent, but many of its members were hunted down during Hellscream's regime. The survivors aligned themselves with the Darkspear Rebellion led by Vol'jin to oust Hellscream. Even more fell. Following this dark time, the Bloods have been rising from war's ashes and laying the foundation of a renewed order. Bonds have been rekindled with its Allianceside sister order and the Bloods also rise to combat the Legion in the Isles. PvE/PvP We also raid weekly Allianceside with a dedicated in-house team of raiding roleplayers we put together and trained back in Cataclysm. We're open to new roleplay-raiders as long as they meet our baseline iLevel and DPS/healing standards. We incorporate raiding into the overarching guild storyline. We have dedicated Mythic+ dungeon teams and regularly push Mythic 7-8 content. We're currently aiming to make Mythic 10s regular. Outside Warcraft Outside WoW, we play Star Wars: The Old Republic and Final Fantasy 14. We also host a private Minecraft server for the guild and are obsessed with Overwatch.

Jan 1 [H] <Bear Fight> Recruiting for Raid & PVP Bear Fight raids weekends saturday and sunday, 9pm to midnight. We have been in a rough spot with healers, having lost a couple due to real life issues which put us behind our goals; that being said our heroic progress is behind where it should be, so *BEAR* with us on that. Many of us have known each other since BC, wrath, or cata so the guild has a very tight knit community to it; we use curse voice and text each other memes and offensive things. Tanks and DPS are always welcome; everyone who can make a move to another role should be ready and able to make moves as needed. 35 points will be recommended for Nighthold but for now we can faceroll Emerald Nightmare together. We're recruiting competent raiders who understand that if raid starts at 9, it means be online ready to go at least 15 minutes before ready to go. Food and Flasks are provided, but the guild works together through contributions; herbs and mats are donated through the week and crafted in advance to raid. We do alt runs on Fridays. Mythics, Kara, and pluses throughout the week as we see fit. As for PVP, we do not currently have an established RBG team, but are working on getting one together. For that we are definitely looking for a boomkin able to flag carry and another Mistweaver monk. Many of us spam arenas, pug into RBGs and spam battlegrounds. The more members who want to pvp, the more that will get done. Feel free to hit me up in game, sometimes i don't see whispers so ingame mail is the safest way to get a response.Puddin2 Jan 1

Dec 28 [A/RP] <Blackdawn> Rises After a long Hiatus, Blackdawn has been reactivated! About Blackdawn An RP guild dating back to pre-Cataclysm, Blackdawn is an RP guild that has in the past combined World RP, Storylines, Events, and PvP to bring emphasis to the World of Warcraft. The guild is headed, themed, and mostly populated by Gilneans (both worgen and human) but accepts any races. WHy? Because the goal of Blackdawn is not to purely focus on Gilneas. The original members (including draenei, dwarves, and gnomes) undertook it as a goal to have Blackdawn not focus merely on restoring Gilneas, but fulfilling the obligations of Gilneas to her allies as well. Other Information Blackdawn members have included pure RPers, PvPers, and Raiders within their ranks. Previously the guild used its alliances and contacts to field full casual raid teams, but due to the game's lower population counts since Cataclysm, we're now hoping to field our own casual 10-man teams in due time. A number of our members also enjoy PvPing on a regular basis, and with enough members and interest, teams can be created. While the guild currently does not employ a website, we do use the Earthen Ring Roleplaying Community enjin site (http://errc.enjin.com), with intentions to eventually create our own community site. Many members also play other Blizzard title games such as Heroes of the Storm and Starcraft 2, and soon-to-be-released Overwatch, as well as non-Blizzard games such as Final Fantasy XIV. Roleplay Blackdawn accepts all races and classes, and any skill level of RPer. Those who believe their RP skills are sub-par can receive information and experience to hone their skills. The guild intend to have a number of small events leading up to Legion release, and hopes to get a strong jump on Legion. Those who wish to level new characters will find plenty of people willing to help, either with supplies or their own lower level characters.
