General Information
<Despotism> is an Alliance 20 man Mythic raiding guild on the Greymane server (PvE). Raids are Sunday and Monday nights from 7:30 to 11:30-12:00 CST (8:30 EST, 5:30 PST).

You can contact Balkoth or Burynerds in-game, via Battletag Balkoth#1847 or Bury#1392, via email at balkothwarcraft at gmail dot com, or by PM on our website.

Currently we're 12/13M in Hellfire Citadel and the top two night a week guild in the US.

Who We Are
Despotism is a guild committed to excellence in raiding on a casual schedule. Our goal is to provide a home for skilled players who no longer have the time or inclination to raid four or more nights a week. Many of our raiders have been in server first and top world guilds, but their schedules no longer allow for such a commitment of time. Our players range from college students to working professionals to parents coaching Little League. All are welcome under our banner if you have the ability we need.

While knowing the fights and participating in our strategy discussions are vital, we provide everything you actually need in-game. You never have to worry about farming consumables or item enhancements. You just need to be ready to show up and do your part.

We're also serious about our commitment to a two-night schedule -- you won't find us adding third days to progress faster. When we say two nights, we mean two nights. It's a rule we've only bent twice in Cataclysm under very unusual circumstances and not once in Mists of Pandaria or Warlords of Draenor.

Our Philosophy
Getting the most out of a light raiding schedule is the essence of Despotism.

We're looking for drama free players who can handle the pressure of heroic raiding where a missed interrupt means someone dies, where a wasted GCD can be a wipe, and where people need to be able to think quickly and adapt in chaotic situations. While we'd prefer certain classes and specs for raid composition, simply being a certain class or spec doesn't mean you're bringing the skill we need. In other words, the main thing we're looking for is player skill and maturity, and we're happy to take a non-preferred class if you have both.

If you're recruited as a raider, you *will* be raiding. You may not be in for every boss but there is not an "A Team" of exactly 20 people with a "bench" who normally sits.

Despotism is a Mythic raiding guild on the Greymane server that was founded in the last few months of WotLK. We got 11/12 heroic and the Frost Wyrm meta achievement while raiding one night a week with half the raid as PUGs.

During tier 11, we decided to build up the roster and transition into a full 10 man raiding guild. By the end of the tier, we were 7/13H with the final kill being Heroic Nefarian, which was an Alliance server first. In Firelands, we achieved server first Heroic Ragnaros and were ranked World 440 and United States 116. In terms of two raids a week guilds, among English-speakers we were first worldwide.

We maintained our rankings as a 10 man guild with server first kills and being roughly around the US 100 mark during Dragon Soul, tier 14, Throne of Thunder, and Siege of Orgrimmar. After killing Heroic Garrosh as a 10 man guild we transitioned to 25 man in preparation for our current Mythic status. During Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry we maintained our US 100ish ranking.
