Delicious Plague (Trollbane-H) is recruiting 2 core DPS!
Delicious Plague is primarily a social/casual guild, and has been without an official raid team for a long time. Our current raid team was casually thrown together about halfway through 4.3, where we went 8/8 in normal DS and 1/8 in heroic (we lost a lot of people to late-expansion blues and were therefore unable to progress any further). This expansion, however, we're more dedicated to progression--while none of us are hardcore raiders by any means, getting all current content down while it's current is our goal. To that end, we've formed a new core 10-man raiding team. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we've lost some of our DPS, and while we've found temporary replacements, we're looking for some more permanent members to join our ranks.
What we want:
+ two DPS, ranged or melee (with a very slight preference for melee).
+ any class is welcome! however, we're shortest on cloth- and leather-wearers by far (we have one holy priest and NO leather-wearers), and we'd prefer not to take on any more hunters, paladins, or shaman if at all possible, at least not for the core raid team.
+ dedicated raiders who can make most if not all raid dates and will mesh well with the group.
+ male or female raiders are both welcome--our guild (and raid team) is about 3/4 female but we take all kinds (I'm male myself).
What you get:
+ a fairly casual and fun group of people to run current content with--we know when to buckle down and be serious, sure, but we like making each other laugh between downing bosses (and sometimes during). expect many naked, dancing trolls, and a certain hunter stacking on the raid leader during Yor'sahj's green slimes.
+ a guild that does a little bit of everything--old raids? we run 'em. achievement runs? you got it. RP? several of us are into it, though we're not on an RP server. about the only thing we don't do is PvP, and even then we've got a couple of members who dabble.
+ people who are willing to run stuff with you to help gear you up if necessary, and guild enchanters/jewelcrafters/etc. who will help you make the most of your gear.
+ when I said we take all kinds I mean we take all kinds--we don't tolerate hate speech of any kind. speaking as the raid leader, I'm trans and bi myself, and any problems are always swiftly dealt with. we want everyone to feel comfortable.
We don't have a guild site, since we've found that most of our members tend not to use it, but we do have a raid blog you can feel free to browse at your leisure. The code of conduct and loot rules are available there if you'd like to check them out.
Even if you're not interested in us for raiding purposes, feel free to join us as a social member! Whisper Quetzalcoatl, Duibhín / Zenkú, Taernoth, Calibrator or Rekalai in-game for an invite. The first is myself, the second is the GM, and the latter three are all officers. Or you can /who Delicious Plague and whisper someone asking for an officer (just be sure to tell them Marvel sent you).
If you're not sure if you'd like to join us as a raider yet, rolling a low-level alt to check us out/ask questions is absolutely encouraged! We can also cross-realm with you in older raids if you'd like to see how we roll on a more personal level. If you do elect to join us, we'll take you on as a "trial raider" right away (so we can see how well you mesh with the group and answer basic questions like, can you pull a baseline amount of DPS? do you have decent raid awareness? do you come prepared/follow the code of conduct?) and you'll be promoted to a full raider after a couple of weeks. Hope to see you there!
