[H] The Grim

Ravenholdt and Twisting Nether
A Grim Purpose

The complete destruction of the Alliance is the goal towards which we strive. Though we are loyal to the Horde, we believe the Horde leaders are not always able to take the necessary steps to ensure its survival. Many who are allied under the banner of the Horde do not agree with our methods. But talk and half-measures are for the weak. It is through our hands that the Horde will become the dominant force on Azeroth and the world beyond.

The Alliance is not the only danger in this world. From the ancient sands of Silithus and the gates of the Black Temple, to the citadel of the Lich King and the siege of Orgrimmar, from the Hellfire Citadel to the Tomb of Sargeras – beings of ancient power and growing strength plot our downfall. By killing and plundering and turning their own weapons against them, we will save the Horde from these threats.

This is our purpose. These are our obstacles that we must overcome. Everything we do we do for this one single goal.

Peace through annihilation.


The Grim is a heavy roleplay guild that also raids and PVP’s. We have IC guild meetings once a month and two RP events of various types. The Grim has been on Twisting Nether/Ravenholdt for twelve years, and has recently opened a branch on Wyrmrest Accord to increase the opportunity to meet new roleplayers.

Grim Players: Grim players are expected to follow all of Blizzard’s rules and RP server guidelines. Additionally, Grim are expected to be ready to be in character at all times, and to avoid using OOC chat in guild chat, say, yell, emotes, and Grim raid and party chat.

Grim Characters: Recruitment is always open for the playable races of the Horde (Orc, Troll, Tauren, Forsaken, Blood Elf, Goblin, Pandaren who chose Horde). While we will accept variations in these races, such as an orc from a clan other than Frostwolf, or trolls from various tribes, we do not accept non-playable races, such as dragons, humans in elf costumes, arakkoa, etc. Any character who wants to work things out with the Alliance, or be friends with them, is not suitable for The Grim.

Joining The Grim: Our application process consists of forum registration, an OOC application post and IC letter, and then a mostly IC interview in game. (We want to make sure of a good fit both for the applicant and the guild.) Once accepted, new members work with the Inquisitors of the guild and must complete a couple IC Trials to be promoted.

Grim PVE: The Grim is raiding Tomb of Sargeras. We have cleared it on both Normal and Heroic. All Grims are welcome to attend raids, as long as they make an effort to get their gear up to an appropriate iLvl beforehand. There is no mandatory attendance for raiding; some members come every night and some show up only as their schedules allow.
Raid nights are Tuesday and Thursday, 7:30-10:30pm TN/RH time.
We also run Mythic+ dungeons on Wednesday at 7:00pm and Friday at 8:00pm.

Grim PVP: The Grim has battleground nights every Wednesday at 8:00pm server time. The team participates in a variety of instanced PVP environments, such as Battlegrounds, Battleground Brawls, Rated Battlegrounds, and Arenas. Occasional World PVP events are also planned.

Grim Events: At least twice monthly, there will be various events scheduled. Some examples are group fishing on Margoss Island, grouping up for Underbelly fighting, running old raids for achievements/mounts/pets/mogs, PVP zone patrols, tournaments for dueling/pet battles/jousting/remote control toys, Brawlgar Arena nights, etc. These are usually scheduled on Sunday or Monday evenings.

Grim Misc: The Grim uses Mumble for organized guild events. There is also an optional Discord server that is very active for Grim members to chat and RP in. Most of the players in the guild are adults with jobs and families. Drama is very rare. Real life always comes first, and attendance at events is never mandatory. The only "mandatory" attendance is that Grims are expected to be present at monthly guild meetings but only if they are online at the time of the meeting.

I enjoy seeing the dim on our server :)
Happy to see you all, still going strong.
