What you can expect...

  • Fairness. We strive to be fair and equal in terms of rewarding members. Loot is distributed on a loot council and based around Attendance and Performance. Easy way to put it, if you put the effort in, you will get rewarded. There's no mysterious or recondite conditions for getting loot; show up, do well, get gear.
  • Maturity. Maturity does not mean that guild chat and mumble run like bible camp. Maturity is knowing when to joke around and when/where to stop. We are a tight group and it has been built around mature members who work well together.
  • No Drama. We have zero tolerance for Drama and people who would generate it. Plain and simple. This is a guild of adults, working professionals and post secondary students. We play WoW to have fun, not listen to people whine and make life miserable for others.
  • Simplicity. "Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians," is a problem so many guilds face and likely why you're here reading this now. We have a small officer core and active discussions outside of raids. But during raids, there is one RL at a raid and the buck stops there. We simplify our raid structure not to be control freaks or to create a goat for when things go wrong, but to make communication succinct and clear. While decisions may be collective, the final word is from the GM or RL.

What we expect...

  • Situational Awareness. Don't stand in the fire/void zones/lava. Being aware of your surroundings as well as those around you.
  • Class Knowledge. Speccing, enchanting and gemming appropriately should come as no shock to anyone wanting to raid. We can help sort out the rough edges but a good baseline is the best place to start. Just as important is the knowledge of other classes and their own roles.
  • Good attitude. Towards raiding and others. With a small guild it's important that you work well with others. In addition to having the mental faculty to handle raids where wipes are inevitable and frequent; or loot may not necessarily be guaranteed.
  • Dedication. Attendance is of vital importance to continuing success and a major factor in distributing loot. We are also looking for players who are active within the guild. Participating in extra-raid activities. Members who are interested in what we all have to offer.
  • Communication. Within Raids we expect Mumble and a working microphone. Any other time we would expect that members respect that we need to know if and when a person cannot be present. We have forums for a reason to share information and better ourselves through sharing that information.
  • Experience. Either with current content or previous content. Having Heroic raiding experience in the current raiding tier or previous ones is an asset we look for. We can teach you the nuances, but we expect experienced players.
  • 18+. While certain conditions may exist for us to recruit younger players, such as: recruitment demands, demonstrable dedication to our schedule and policies. It is generally expected that an applicant be at least 18 years of age. Not because we believe only people 18+ are mature; generally speaking younger players are not in a position to independently manage their schedules. We also feel that younger players should dedicate themselves to their real-life commitments and not have to concern themselves with the burdens a raiding guild can impose upon their daily schedule.

Final Considerations and How to Join...

    If you have read this far and are considering joining. We encourage you to submit an application by visiting our website at:

    If you have any questions feel free to contact an officer or member in game. It is expected that you are at least raid geared, gemmed, enchanted, and otherwise prepared for raids and the schedule.
