2/16H Restoration Shaman LF Guild

Guild Recruitment
My current Guild has come into a rough patch and our raid team is splitting. Thus I am looking for a new Guild to push progression content. I spend a lot of time working on my class knowledge as well as my encounter knowledge for every tier of content. I am on time for all my raids barring any extreme circumstances. I have raided in both 25 man and 10 man raid groups since Vanilla wow (which use to be 40 of course).

I look forward to any interest, please contact me here or in game.

A little about us
Eternal Life is an Alliance guild on the US-Burning Blade realm. We are currently seeking skilled, consistent, experienced *and friendly!* raiders that are looking to push progression into whatever new raids are thrown at us!

Eternal Life has been around for a very long time, ranging all the way back to Kara. There have only been two Guild Leaders in all of that time, with the second one being the co-gm for all of the time prior. We've always been known for being the type of guild that gets stuff done, but still keeps the game fun and enjoyable. When working on progression, the atmosphere is kept serious. That being said, the rest of the time is generally very light, friendly, and full of jokes. Our guild has a lot of heart, and we are absolutely 100% loyal to our raiders.

We value good players, but value loyalty and consistency with attendance just as much. If you're a loyal person and willing to show up and work towards getting the job done, this is the guild for you.

We use a very easy to understand, custom DKP system in order to keep loot distribution as fair as we possibly can.

We have always been fond of raiding many times per week, and so our raiding schedule is generally 4 nights per week (at least during progression).

Our progression raiding schedule is:

Sunday: 7:45-11:00 EST
Monday: 7:45-11:00 EST
Tuesday: 7:45-11:00 EST
Thursday: 7:45-11:00 EST

Current Needs

We're currently looking for:

Disc Priest
Holy Paladin
Mistweaver Monk
Resto Shaman

Moonkin Druid
Fury Warrior

Enhancement Shaman
Windwalker Monk
Feral Druid

But any exceptional players will be considered.


We may not be full of server first kills, but we do always stay within the top few alliance guilds on this server.

We are currently [4/6] in Heroic 25 man MSV, [6/6] in 25 man HoF, and [4/4] in 25 man Terrace.

We went [8/8] in Heroic 25 man Dragonsoul.

On to you..

If you feel you could contribute a lot to our guild and would be a good fit for us, we encourage you to apply. We are always looking for exceptional applicants, so even if your class is closed, don't be afraid to apply!

If you wish to speak with someone first, please feel free to contact me on my battletag (Killstrike#1614), or whisper anyone online and ask to speak with an officer and they will point you in the right direction.

*We are 3/6H 6/6N 4/4N


<Livid> (lv25) was formed by 6 members and officers of a US 367 guild late in the cataclysm expansion. We founded <Livid> because we felt as though our old guild was becoming too casual and we were looking to maintain and expand upon our hardcore raiding beliefs. We are proud to have obtained 3 Server-Firsts during MoP Launch and wish to continue pushing raiding progression throughout this expansion.
Weekly Guild Activities: Each week we have an Alt raid on Saturdays at normal raid time. We also have a Rated Battleground group that runs earlier in the day on Saturday. We have several inter-guild 2s, 3s, and 5s teams as well that go at various times. If you are a talented PVPer or enjoy raiding on an alt, we have activities for you! We also do challenge modes on Friday evenings when there is enough interest by guildees.

About us: We offer a mature raiding environment, with officers that have plenty of real life and in game leadership experience. We believe in pushing players to be the best they possibly can be without demoralizing them or putting them down. Min/Maxing is not an option for <Livid> players, but rather a norm. Attendance to raids is mandatory and non-negotiable. We use mumble exclusively because of the small benefit it provides in real world speech lag (it’s faster than Ventrilo).
Raid Schedule: Tue/Wed/Thur. Raid Times are: 6:00 Server – 9:00 Server. With invites going out at 5:45 Server (server is on Pacific Time).
Our Raid Times in Other Time Zones:
7-10pm MST
8-11pm CST
9-Midnight EST

Our Server: Velen is a medium population PVE server with slightly more Alliance than horde (60/40). The economy is strong and AH prices are quite reasonable. Velen is in the New York Datacenter.
Loot System: Loot Council with each raider getting a vote on who gets loot. The GMs make final decisions should there be a tie vote.This system has been a drama free loot system thus far.
Expectations of All Raiders: Must have an exceptional understanding of your class and spec. Flawless raid attendance; raiding must be a top priority for you. We expect correct gemming, glyphing, speccing and reforging as well as the proper addons to manage your DPS/HPS/Uptimes, etc. We also require that your main raiding toon have leveled professions that are non- gathering professions. Pre-potting is expected on any boss encounter. Lastly, we require you have a stable internet connection and a computer capable of easily running World of Warcraft. We are an 18+ guild, prefer 25+. We do not allow trolling in trade chat or on the realm forums of any kind.

What we Provide to Raiders: Feasts are Free (You MUST level cooking in your main area pre-5.1 patch drop) Guild Repairs are provided and we provide potions and flasks when we can. We also provide all Enchants and have ALL MOP Enchants unlocked. Extra guild bank funds are used to purchase BOE weapons for raiders. Anything we can do with guild bank funds to improve our raid team is done.

<Seraphym> is a 25 man raiding guild on the [US]Bladefist server. We describe ourselves as semi-hardcore, meaning we strive to be the best we can be & down heroic content while still maintaining a friendly & enjoyable raiding atmosphere. We believe you can kill bosses without shouting, insults, or other negative behavior. We are actively looking for the following classes to join us in our progression through Pandaria raids, though we encourage all interested persons to apply regardless of class needs, outstanding applicants will always be considered:

Rdps: Warlock, Druid(Balance), Mage, Hunter

Loot: We use a no-bid DKP system by WebDKP. DKP is earned hourly with bonuses for progression kills & being on time.

The system has been very successful for us and most people get everything they want eventually if they attend all raids.

What we expect from you:
* Know your class, be gemmed/enchanted/reforged properly.
* Willingness to research encounters and what advantages your class can bring.

Who we are:

Reign in Power is a 10-man only Raiding Guild who cannot or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedule of traditional "hardcore" guilds. If you want to kill end game content while not making WoW your second job, then we might be what you are looking for. The core of Reign in Power has raided together since Everquest and moved to World of Warcraft for launch. That being said the guild has very strong leadership and people that want to get the job done.

We formed this guild to take advantage of the "casual friendly" changes that were brought on during Wrath and even more improvements as we flow into Cata. We want gamers that want to log in for a raid not feel burden to log in for the 5th night raid like there job.

Who We Are Seeking
People that want to keep climbing the ladder or progression MoP.

Sunday: 9:00 pm - 1 am CST

That is just 11 to 12 hours a week. We will run a very tight roster ranging from 10 to 13 people for raid members with the expectation that our members achieve near 100% attendance.

What We Expect

You are looking for a long-term commitment to the guild to raid near 100 percent of the time.
You are aware of your surroundings and know when to get out of void zones, cleaves, swipes and proper placements on fights.
You understand that some fights are not just a dps race working as a team and killing the boss is more important that you living on the edge.
You understand the advantages of a Council-based loot system.
You act mature.

<Non Combat Pet> US-Proudmoore Guild History:

Non Combat Pet was the server first guild throughout the entirety of Cataclysm with notable kills like the #1 US 10man Ragnaros heroic kill, #12 US 10man Madness heroic kill. Currently sitting at server first and US #48. Non Combat Pet raids 5 separate 10man raids weekly and as such you are applying to ONE (Team Blasphemy in this case) of the raids within the guild. It is a fantastic guild filled with very skilled and friendly people.


Hey there,

<Non Combat Pet>'s Team Blasphemy is currently seeking one or two select individuals to iron-out our roster for the remainder of t14 and onwards!

4/6 Heroic Mogu'shun Vaults
1/6 Heroic Heart of Fear
4/4 Normal Terrace of the Endless Spring

This is the "late night" team under the <Non Combat Pet> banner and as such our raid times consist of the following. Tuesday/Wednesday/Monday from 10 PM PST until 1 AM PST. It is imperative that any applicant has no conflict with these raid times as a 9 hr/week raiding schedule is less than extreme.


Currently Recruiting (In order of priority):

1x Resto Shaman or 1x Mistweaver Monk

1x Exceptional DPS

As always, having an off-spec in which you can play at an equal level as your main spec is a bonus.


What you can expect from us is a laid back and fun (LGBT friendly) raiding environment compiled of raiders who consistently rank among the best on World of Logs. Having said that, when it is raid time we expect nothing but 100% focus on the task at hand. The majority of the raid has been playing and raiding at high levels for years, and ideally we expect the same from you. This includes PvE and PvP (Gladiator, 2400+, Hero of the Alliance, Grand Marshal's etc.) While we only raid 9 hours a week, progression is our main priority and as such we will ideally run a 12 person roster which can/will change on a boss-to-boss basis.

An ideal applicant will know their class inside and out, and know how to play their spec(s) to its fullest. This includes the obvious things such as enchants/gems, but also the appropriate professions for their spec/class.

<Non Combat Pet> has 5 10-man raids who run on a weekly basis, please note you are applying to one of these specific raids, in this case Team Blasphemy.

If you feel as though you'd be a good fit for Team Blasphemy feel free to contact me in-game or apply at: http://noncombatpet.enjin.com/recruitment

Adapt is 8/16H (5/6H MV, 3/6H HoF, 4/4 ToES) and looking to add 1-2 great players to the roster - people who can knock our socks off with their execution and output on progression content, demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of their class, and help improve the people around them through their positive attitude and team-first outlook.

A little more about the guild - we are a mature, drama-free 25-man guild with a long, stable history. Formed during Wrath from a set of folk who had been playing together casually since BC, we had solid 25-man progression during Cataclysm, capturing almost all server 1st 25-man kills and ending the expansion at US 128. During Mists we have continued this trend, clearing normal mode content the week of release, ranking in the top 100 for US 25-mans, and improving with each new kill.

All of this is accomplished on a relatively light schedule - we raid 8-12 PST on Tues/Wed/Thur. There is also plenty to do outside of raids - our guild is home to many high-playtime folk, there are multiple social/alt runs during the week, and we have a lot of folk that like to PvP, farm achievements/dailies, run LFR for ranks & to test things out, do retro raids or pet/mount runs, etc.

Check us out at www.adaptguild.com or you can contact our GM via BattleNet at Vaxum#1526.

Hey Serigon, we're looking for a solid resto sham to fill out our group. I'll paste some of the basic info below. Currently getting the "battle.net offline" error in game, but hopefully that doesn't last too long. Thanks for reading!

<Echelón> is now recruiting experienced raiders for core spots.

Raid times are Tuesday-Thursday 6:00pm-9:00pm server time (PST). We are looking to fill a couple core spots on one of our 10 mans. The group is 10/16N and a few of the members are 16/16N. Looking to solidify these last couple spots, get into heroics and get ready to make a strong push come 5.2!

Our core group of players has played together through several tiers and expansions and is made up of skilled players that have the desire to push new content while keeping a friendly and constructive environment. Our raiders are dedicated, friendly, respectful, and skilled. Raiding 9 hours/week, we don't have time for drama.

What we offer:
<Echelón> is a long-standing, stable guild that offers players a guild that focuses not only on raiding but on its people. Our primary focus is heroic mode raiding, but our raiders and community participate in many different guild events, including PVP. We believe that a positive, constructive and inclusive environment is critical in building a successful raiding team. If you have been looking for a mature guild that enjoys their community as much as downing bosses, we are the guild for you!

We are looking for the type of player who:
-knows the intricacies of his/her class and can play it well,
-has great raid awareness and a quick learning curve,
-enjoys pushing progression and learning fights,
-and is excited to be part of a successful team environment.

Currently, the classes we have a need for are as follows:

(1) Non-pally healer, pref. one with a dps OS
(1) Plate DPS
(1) Ranged - mage, shammy, or boomkin

Feel free to contact an officer in game if you need any more information: Vinodolce, Oryin (Xotl#1172), Donnieyenn.
