Our blog has a forum community and within that forum community we have hundreds of players spread across various games. We often create guilds or clans in various games like Battlefield or Call of Duty and MMO’s like Darkfall, Rift, and WoW. Many times as the games fail our community presence in those games shuts down and we move on together to the next game. That’s the great thing about a community over a guild that forms for just one game because you can make friends and play with them in every game. One of our more successful community guilds is in World of Warcraft. We formed this group back in the Wrath days and it has hung on ever since, even through two hiatus’ from the game to go and explore other titles.
The irony here is not lost on me. Let me say that upfront. Okay, now for the irony.
We’re in a position where we want to complete content in WoW. Raid content. We have easily 15 members who are 85 and active and want to raid. The problem we’re having is that our community spans the globe and timing could not be worse for us. Half the people can be on early and the other half can be on late, leaving us never with enough. Sadly, WoW is just like every game that copies WoW in that the end-game is all raids and to raid you need a group of people that is sometimes larger than you can muster. I long for the day when we have a sandbox game where we don’t have to worry about guild numbers to do content, but for now this is what we have and we want to make the most of it.
We want to build a group that starts fresh and completes all of the 10-man normal mode raid content in WoW. Some of us have done a lot or all of it already, but we want to play through it again together. To accomplish this goal, we need a larger pool of people from which to draw from at raid time.
We have plenty of space for all classes but the few we have most need of are: Rogue, Druid, Shaman, and Death Knight.
If you’re on the Emerald Dream server or want to transfer over and play with a casual guild with goals to complete the content simply for them (not for the gear grind), then give us a look. We really take pride in being like a group of casual friends. This oft leads to our detriment, like needing to recruit in blog posts, but we wouldn’t sacrifice the feel of our guild for anything.
