New expansion announcement is out - World of Warcraft - Heroes of the Garrison
Back in the day...
Way back when Illidan and the Burning Crusade were ravaging Outlands, we battled their forces with extreme prejudice. We conquered Medivh's tower of Karazhan, fought off Lady Vashj, countered Kael'thas's advances, prevented the destruction of the World Tree, took the fight to Illidan at the Black Temple, and melted Kil'Jaeden in his Sunwell. We achieved all these feats in 2 1/2 months while raiding only 9 hours a week, prior to Blizzard's removal of the attunements. We powered through the server ranks, becoming the #1 Horde guild and #3 on the server.
We continued our momentum in Wrath, earning every server first through Ulduar and competing for top 150 positions. Sadly, real world crises escalated. A small portion of our guild left to go defend our country in the Middle East. Others married, had kids, or went to college. Our ability to raid with that level of commitment diminished, and at last several of us went our separate ways, still maintaining our friendships and contact information.
What we're doin' now...
Back in February, we had the idea to restart the old raiding group from the BC and Wrath days. Three of us were still in game and raiding in other guilds, while most of our old core had either moved on from WoW or were just playing very casually. Some calls were made, excitement was sparked, and veteran players began returning to the game.
In late April and early May, we began raiding 10 man on US-Terenas, our original home server. We quickly cleared through normal SoO and were starting heroics... But we craved the 25man environment. Terenas was such a small and backwater server that we were having issues recruiting, so the decision was made to move to US-Blackrock and we couldn't have made a better choice.
With a vision in mind and diligent recruiting, we launched our first 25man Heroic raid in late June on US-Blackrock. Starting with a guild average iLvl of around 560, we made the heroic push, clearing the first 10 heroic bosses of SoO in a few short days.
Nearly a year after Siege was released, we got our first Heroic Garrosh kill. However, this was only 3 months after our push for Heroic raiding began. Solidifying ourselves as the #5 25man guild on Blackrock, we have set the expectation for the future. With a fresh start, when content is new, we will push content harder and faster and establish ourselves as the #1 two-night raiding guild in the US.
We will return to our previous standard of excellence. We will be the #1 two-night raiding guild in the country.
This may seem like a daunting task - it absolutely is. Our officer team is dedicated to this goal and willing to put in the time and effort to accomplish it. When Warlords drops, we will hit the ground running. We will clear content quickly and competitively. These are our goals and expectations.
With roughly 2/3 of our guild residing on the West Coast, we have adopted a PST raiding time that allows for family life to still exist. This however pushes East Coasters to raid as late as 2am.
SUNDAYS/MONDAYS: 7p-11p PST
So you want to be a Mythic Raider???
We are not your typical "run of the mill" raiding guild. We enjoy the cutting-edge playstyle that competitive raiding brings. As such, we have high expectations of our raiders.
There is no hand-holding here. If a trial performs better than you, they will be brought in for progression. If for whatever reason we need to bring in a PUG, and they perform better than you, you may be sat and we may potentially recruit them to fill your role. As harsh as this may sound, it is necessary to compete at the level we intend to.
Post an application and tell us why. If we feel you're right for our team, we will invite you for a trial.
