Spike Flail on Ner'zhul (PVP) is looking for a few more dedicated raiders to join us as we progress through Firelands Heroic.

We are a 10m Heroic progression guild, with raiding days Mon-Thurs from 7-11 PM EST. As a guild we've been around since TBC, including top ranked US progression in WoLK 25m. In Cataclysm we decided to focus on the 10m raiding model; we are currently 2/7 in Heroic Firelands and were 13/13 in T11 before 4.2 hit, ranking in the top 10 of US 10m guild progression. We also have completed the US #4th "Can't Hear you Over the Sound of How Awesome I Am" Sinestra Achievement.


About Spike Flail:

The core of our guild came from the MMO Final Fantasy XI, where we were members of the guild Kupo, which was the top guild on our realm Pandemonium. A few of us had WoW experience in Vanilla, and when TBC came out we returned to the game, this time with many of our guildmates who were growing tired of FFXI's repetition. We started the guild from Kara up and slowly grew into a top guild on the server, finishing TBC as the 2nd progressed guild Horde side. In WoLK we made the jump to a top US guild, with our Ulduar, ToC, and ICC progression clocking in the top 15-20 US consistently. In Cata we decided ot focus on the 10m raiding model to maintain a more intimate and less recruitment-heavy environment, and have enjoyed great success as well. Over the years we've created a warm, fun and professional environment in which to pursue our endgame goals.

We currently raid from Monday-Thursday, from 7 PM EST - 11 PM EST, with occasional Sunday raids if needed. Our schedule tries to leave weekends open for our members to enjoy their social lives.

We take raiding serious, but we also know this is a game and meant to be enjoyed. While I know that sounds cliche and overused, I'm honestly proud to say that we're not the type of guild that takes raiding so seriously that we have run completely in the authoritarian manner and forget why we're playing. Our main goal is to maintain a professional environment in which we can play this game and progress, and we try to take that mentality into how we conduct ourselves when it comes to raiding and our reputation on our server. We've worked hard to create this professional and respectful atmosphere, and if you ask around on our server, I guarantee you'd be hard pressed to find a large number of people who've ever heard bad things about Spike Flail.

What we're looking for:

As we're a smaller 10m guild, we're looking for players who's attitudes and personality fit in with our current group of players. Some general requirements:

    -Heroic experience. We're looking for apps with at least 8/13 HM experience. We also prefer applicants who had significant experience in top progression in WoLK, to ensure knowledge of what it takes to succeed in a progression guild.
    -Ability to make 90% of our raids.
    -Dedicated raiding mindset. This includes using consumables on every fight, researching your classes' theorycrafting to min-max to the fullest, being on time and ready for every night, etc.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: We're looking for intelligent human being, and you should be able to convey your intelligence in how you present yourself. This includes knowing game mechanics, having quick reaction time, and being able to learn from your mistakes. You should be able to explain your classes weakness and strengths, know the theorycraft to min/max your class, and what abilities to use when. You must be able to learn quickly from your mistakes and adapt to new situations, as well as have a strong sense of situational awareness and the ability to multi-task effectively. You also must be able to express yourself in a way that shows you're an intelligent human being, this includes proper grammar and sentence structure. If you can't express yourself in a form that shows you have an education higher than a grade schooler, you probably aren't the type of person we're looking for. No "b4, u, r, sum1," every time you speak please.

You can find a much longer post regarding all our expectations and requirements for our applicants at]here. I STRONGLY encourage any potential applicant to read over that thread thoroughly before making a decision regarding their application.

Prospective Trials must be completely knowledgeable of their class's theorycraft and mechanics, dedicated and dependable raiders, and overall knowledgeable and skilled players. Our specific class needs are as follows:

    High Priority:
      -Frost/Unholy DK
      -Elemental Shaman
      -Feral Druid

    Mid Priority:
      -Ret Paladin
      -Fury Warrior

How to contact us:

If you're interested in applying, you can visit our forums at [url][/url] and put an application in on the appropriate forum. Please be sure to read all the stickies before applying, if you can't be bothered to read the stickies and follow application directions you probably will not be considered for a trial. You also can roll a level 1 on Ner'zhul and chat with myself or any other Spike Flail officer.

Please be sure to read over all the information we've presented on our forum before making a decision to apply. If you think you meet our requirements and agree with our philosophy towards raiding, feel free to pursue it. However please don't belittle yourself by simply glancing over our information and tossing an application with no effort behind it. The application process is partly an attempt to weed our those who can't read stickies or form a proper sentence, so please remember that an application is your first impression, so try to make it as well crafted as possible.

Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!
