About Our Guild:

Shadow Warriors was born at the beginning of The Burning Crusade as a working person's guild and has maintained a steady and balanced raid force since. A typical member is in their 20s or 30s with a full time job, and maybe a spouse and child, but we are willing to accept mature and stable people of any age. Our raid schedule hasn't changed in the life of the guild and we expect members to plan around it. This is often difficult for students and impossible for minors.

Our leadership is democratically elected in 6 month cycles. We like the fresh faces that this brings in and allows opportunities for burned out leaders to step back seamlessly. Our DKP system has been in use since tier 4 and has provided drama-free loot distribution for the life of the guild. Our DKP site and raid history is publicly available on our website (

Our guild aims to be the most consistent 3-night guild available with a proven track record of clearing content in a reasonable amount of time. Our strategy revolves around redundancy for every imaginable raid role or raid buff. As a result we can absorb short absences and late summer vacations and keep raids running. We also have redundancy in the officer core and leadership roles so if the raid leader dies during the course of a 3 day bender the guild can march on. The downside to this leadership strategy is the inevitable situation of all 35 members showing up for the same raid. We resolve this with proper communication and an "Everyone sits a little, nobody sits a lot" philosophy. We don't have a "bench" and we never will.

We have an active set of forums and many non-raiders in the guild. We allow -- and encourage -- having friends in the guild as well as retired raiders. Our recruitment spots are typically offered to non-raiding members before they are open to the public.

The humor in our guild is typically PG-13. Any NSFW links on our forum are clearly marked. There is some adult language in vent but nothing extreme. Our raid leaders do not publicly humiliate people for making mistakes but we work with all of our members individually to improve performance. In the case of consistent poor performance trials are asked to leave the guild and members are asked to stop raiding.

Our guild bank provides typical things like repairs, feasts, potions, and flasks.

As a guild we don't focus on PvP but we have a couple of Duelists. If you want to PvP you shouldn't have a problem finding people for Tol Borad, rated battlegrounds, or mid-level arenas. We don't have any guild-sanctioned PvP events at this time but a Rated BG group is starting to form.

About You:

Personality is the number one trait - we want you to fit in with our members. You should be able to attend all of our raids except for occasional vacations. If you need to be absent post on our forums ahead of time. You need to be competent with all aspects of your class including the roles you did not apply for.

Your gear should be at heroic level or better. More importantly, it must have the best gems and enchants at the time of your application. We don't care how bad the item is or how quickly you will replace it. Item enhancements show the dedication to maximizing your performance that we expect from all of our members.

Tuesday: 7pm-11pm CST
