Thats right you guessed it. Rise is recruiting! I know... I know... this isn’t trade chat but we’ll just have to make due.
That being said we are currently looking for exceptional people from across the greater WoW populace to join <Rise> in our plans for world domination... erm or slaying internet dragons. You know... whatever comes first.
Note that I said exceptional people and not exceptional players. Why?
Because in short exceptional play can be taught. Being an exceptional person cannot.
But Voxxar... there are thousands of guilds recruiting. Why should I choose <Rise>?
I could tell you that consumers have chosen <Rise> more than any of the the other guys since December 29th 2012.
I could tell you that all <Rise> progression fights are completed with 10 chicken pets at the ready to back us up. (Fact: Chickens are distant cousins of Oondasta and that dude has laser beams!)Disclaimer: Guild Chicken pets do not drop loot if killed.
Seriously though all joking aside the reason you should join <Rise> really boils down to one word~ Community ~
<Rise> is a place where people of all backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations etc can come together to make connections, socialize, participate in activities, and share in their enjoyment of the World of Warcraft in a judgement free environment.
I cannot stress how important the above statement really is. Wherever you’re from, Whatever you believe, you deserve a judgement free, fun, in game experience.
While I can only speak for myself I was sick of a guild experience where...
- I was a background fixture at best
- I was surrounded by Drama
- No one cared if I was online unless they needed me for an event
If you identified by any of those bullet points <Rise> might be a good fit for you. Since joining the guild I find myself playing more often AND enjoying myself again.
The main reason for this is because I find myself surrounded by active, exceptional people, who are fun to be with, and that I am proud to call my friends with all the weight that facebook has stolen from that word.But Wait There’s More! ~ (Of Raiding, Chickens, PvP, Challenge Modes, etc)
For those of you who have been biting your nails in anticipation while reading this your wait is over.
Raiding - Yes we raid. (Its true... no I’m really not joking this time)
Saturday Morning (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Server Time)
Sunday Morning (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Server Time)
That being said we are a casual raiding guild. Please note that casual does NOT mean lazy or incompetent. (A common misconception).
We expect raiders to have a good attitude, to come prepared and be relatively reliable (75%)
(Full Raiding Expectations can be found on our website)
We recently began running 10 man raids, and we've met a large amount of success in a short period of time! We've received a lot of interest in our raid team, and we've decided to make the jump to 25s! Our goal is to make the switch on the first weekend of May, and we need more raiders to make that happen! Our 10 man progression stands at:
- MSV (6/6)
- HoF (5/6)
- ToES (0/4)
- ToT (0/12)
We want to point this out because if you are looking for server first kills, pushing hard modes etc <Rise> probably isn’t a good fit for you. However if you have a desire to see content, have a good attitude and want to have a great time we just might be. IMPORTANT:
Chicken Battle Pet (Any Variety) required for raiding. No I wasn’t joking earlier.Core Team Openings
While our raid team has grown by leaps and bounds, we still have many slots to fill and are recruiting for all roles! Specific needs include:TANKS
While we don't currently *need* any more main specc tanks, we have several very flexible folks that make it to where we can take a tank or two for a core position! A Guardian Druid would be great, but any tanks will be considered!MELEE DPS
We find ourselves extremely light on melee! Currently unrepresented in our raids are:
- Feral Druid
- Enahncement Shaman
- DPS Warrior
- DPS Deathknight
Unfortunately, we are full on WindWalker Monks! If we need any more punchy punchy we'll be sure to let you know!RANGED DPS
We're looking pretty good on ranged but can still fit a few more! We have all the flavors covered, so any ranged will be considered!HEALERS
We have a HIGH
need for 3-4 exceptional healers for core positions! Healing classes currently unrepresented are:
- Discipline Priest
- Restoration Shaman
- Holy Paladin
While these would be ideal, any healers will be considered, with the exception of Mistweaver Monks, which are currently full
Challenge Modes - Yes! Currently on Wednesday Nights.
We are just starting to make our entrance on to the challenge mode scene and we would love to have some more members who are game to try for the gold!
Retro Raiding / Transmog / Achievement Runs - Yes! Currently on Thursday Nights.
What? I like to look stylish. Don’t you?
PvP - Yes!
We like to hit people in the face. What? We’re the Horde. It’s entirely acceptable.
(We currently don’t have a set night for this but depending on interest that could change.)
If this sounds up your alley, by all means visit our website and fill out a short application today! Please excuse the fresh paint. The site as a whole and the documents contained therein are all works in progress!
Also, if you need more information please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of our officers in game! You can find me on Battletag at Normak#1462, or contact Phyrst, Arvai, Jijari... any of our members really! Anyone will be happy to answer your questions, or point you to someone who can!
