Paladin Retribution Shaman Elemental Shaman Enhancement Warlock We are interested in more classes, but these are our missing spots at the moment.
Order of the Silverflame has been about since vanilla although we had a bit of a break in Burning Crusade. We’re a 25-man raiding guild and we plan to remain that way.
We are a friendly group who enjoy World of Warcraft and enjoy raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We expect members of the guild to enjoy the game as much as we do and to take part in raids and maintain a 70-85% attendance per month.
There are a few things, we highly value above everything else: friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and either Monday or Thursday every other week, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
We also run optional runs on Fridays when needed. (usually on heroic mode)
Saturday is left for older content runs for fun and drinking!
Although we are a 25-man guild, we usually run an extra group, to get the most people raiding, help newer raiders learn the Silverflame’s way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Fridays.
Our current progress is 13/13 in Hellfire Citadel in Heroic mode and 10/13 in Mythic Mode.
If you're interested in joining Order of the Silverflame, please fill in our application form, located at http://forum.silverflame.org/index.php/board,2.0.html , whisper Athliara@Draenor or add my battletag Athlios#2283.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Where are all my glyphs?
A: Major glyphs (playstyle affecting) are gone. The remaining ones (former Minor) are purely cosmetic now and only affect the appearance of spells.
New glyphs are consumable that are being applied directly to a spell in your spellbook.
Q: Where are all the Elemental shields?
A: Water shield was removed completely, Earth shield is a PvP talent now, Lightning shield is an Ench spec talent.
Q: Where are my Elementals?
A: They were removed from the resto spec together with the Primal Elementalist talent.
Q: Seriously? What else has gone?
A: Spirit has gone. Now you have a standard mana pool and a standard mana regen (44000 mp5) both in and out of combat. Some other healing classes have a talent or an artifact trait for increased mana regen, resto shamans - do not.
You can’t see Spell Power in your Character Info or on your weapon - it was merged with the Intellect. So for math purposes, Int=SP. If you want to see detailed attributes, use an addon, for example DejaCharacterStats
Damaging abilities: Fire Elemental, Searing totem, Elemental Blast, Frost Shock have gone.
Our damaging abilities now are Flame Shock, Lava Burst, Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning.
Ghost wolf speed boost: the glyph has gone. You will have a Class Hall Champion boosting your speed in the outdoor world.
Q: Where is the Totemic Projection, I want to move my totems around?
A: The talent has gone. All the healing totems now spawn at your feet and remain there, all the utility totems has a targeting reticle so you can place them anywhere in range.
Q: What professions should I choose for my shaman?
A: Professions don’t affect directly your gameplay so choose whatever suits your playstyle.
Better to choose a crafting/gathering pair like Leathercrafting/Skinning because the gathering profs would be a much easier source for the Blood of Sargeras (BoP item) at least on the start of the expansion. Blood of Sargeras is used in almost every high-end craft and gear upgrade.
Anyways, profession choice shouldn’t be a concern because in Legion you can swap between professions for 1000 g, saving all the current (Legion) progress and recipes.
Q: What is the stats priority for a resto shaman?
In-depth explanations and math are done by Gardiff (Mythic resto shaman on Kil’jaeden-US) - a theorycrafter and the Resto Shaman Secondary Stat Simulator developer. The SIM and walls of text are here and here.
Q: But why not to prioritize Crit, Resurgence is still the only regen mechanic outside of base regen?
A: It is, but it is garbage, in-depth explanation is here:
Q: What are the right talents for solo playing/Mythic+/raiding?
A: You can find different talent builds below in this post.
Q: How should I fill the Artifact for the best performance in raids?
A: Resto shaman Artifact Calculator
1) Right path up to the Gold Trait
2) Left path up to the Gold Trait (yes, Tidal Pools it’s not a great gain but leaving it out doesn’t help either)
3) Jump to the third Gold Trait through either side (right or left) - they both are not a great gain for the raids, leave Refreshing Currents for the very end.
Q: May / should I level as a resto? I hate dps spec / afraid to lose artifact power.
A: Resto spec is a viable spec for leveling. The main concern here is that you kill mobs slower than any dps spec but the great advantage is that you are literally unkillable in any situation.
You can level in a dps offspec too, it is faster but with almost all the selfhealing being removed, you should be pretty cautious with pulls.
Don’t worry about the Artifact: no matter which one you will choose on lvl 100, you will get the Artifact quests for the remaining specs on lvl 102.
Don’t worry about losing artifact power during leveling: almost all of it is stored in consumable items so just respec to resto before using them.
Don’t worry about upgrading your offspec Artifact during leveling: first 13 traits on every artifact are very cheap, their cost starts to jump in geometric progression only from the 14th trait.
Upgrading a bit your offspec artifact for easier leveling wouldn’t hold back your main spec.
Q: I’m new to resto, what are all these HPM, QA, TW abbreviations?
A: The most frequently used abbreviations are:
Soloing content in resto spec:
The main idea of a talent build for solo playing is to maximise your dps relying on passive/instant healing, while keeping mobs away as long as possible.
Tier 1: Torrent (increases your instant heal)
Tier 2: Gust of Wind or Graceful Spirit. I personally would prefer GS for the additional passive increase of movement speed in Ghost Wolf form.
Tier 31: Earthgrab Totem to keep your enemies away
Tier 4: Ancestral Guidance to convert your damage into healing
Tier 5: Earthen Shield Totem: redirects a part of every attack against you and allies to itself.
Tier 6: Echo of the Elements: double HST, Riptide and Lava Burst - extremely useful.
Tier 7: Doesn't matter: nothing here will affect your solo experience.
Tier 1: Undulation or Torrent.
Undulation is fully utilized in 5-man environment because of constant need in tank healing.
Torrent pretty much turns Riptide into a full power instant heal, may pair nicely with EotE.
Tier 2: Wind Rush Totem or Graceful Spirit. Take WRT if a group speed boost is needed during the encounter, otherwise GS.
Tier 3: Lightning Surge Totem is very useful on trash.
Tier 4: Crashing Waves or Ancestral Guidance.
I’d say AG if you took EotE, in this way you wouldn’t waste double TW from Crashing Waves when applying two Riptides in a row.
Tier 51: Earthen Shield Totem or Ancestral Vigor.
Vigor actually may be a lifesaver in high level Mythic+.
Tier 6:: Cloudburst Totem or Echo of the Elements.
Use CBT if you are comfortable with its playstyle and are able to plan in advance, otherwise (or if you chose Torrent) take WotE.
Tier 7: Ascendance or High Tide. I think that Ascendance is more viable, but HT may be fine too depending on the group comp.
Possible combos: Stick with Undulation + Crashing Waves if you prefer HW/HS healing style. Torrent + Ancestral Guidance + Echo of the Elements for Riptide + CDs style.
Tier 1: Torrent (increases your instant heal)
Tier 2: Wind Rush Totem or Graceful Spirit. Take WRT if a raid speed boost is needed during the encounter, otherwise GS.
Tier 3: Lightning Surge Totem may be useful on trash or if you need more add stuns during the encounter.
Tier 4: Crashing Waves or Ancestral Guidance.
Tier 5: Ancestral Protection Totem gives you an additional ress that is not counted as Battle Ress - may be great to cheese some mechanics where you rather let a person die. Better not to use if you are not sure when you’ll need it because of a very long CD. Choose Earthen Shield Totem otherwise.
I find Ancestral Vigor a bit of an overkill in raids because we don’t really have the 1-shot mechanics demanding additional HP pool. Might be useful though for soaking or for people dealing with specific mechanics during encounters.
Tier 6: Cloudburst Totem. Not really debatable at least for the start of the expansion (if remains unnerfed) - saves a lot of mana accumulating not only your healing but overhealing too and releasing the stored power to actually injured targets.
Bottomless Depths are useless because 1) Resurgence returns a miserable amount of mana and 2) Proccing Resurgence is our very last concern when raid drops below 60%.
Echo of the Elements is underperforming seriously in the raid environment. HST is dropped always on CD making the gain of double charge almost insensible (like 1 additional HST during an encounter), in addition the proc rate for the additional Riptide charge from the talent is extremely low, not justifying choosing EotE over CBT.
Tier 7: Wellspring or High Tide.
Ancestral Guidance + Cloudburst Totem + Wellspring combo
This combo is incredibly efficient and strong if done right (remember that both CBT and AG are semi-smart and they generally don't overheal), but if you use WS in isolation or for healing up a large number of targets, you won't get good mileage out of the ability.
The basic idea is that you want to NOT use WS to heal up for a raid-wide ability. What makes WS good right now is that you can force all of its healing into CBT through purposeful overhealing (but still useful healing). BUT, if you use it to heal a raid that has 20 targets who have taken damage, it will split that 1800% SP over 20 targets which is incredibly weak because you get no overhealing bonus.
The point is, if you are going to try using WS, then absolutely DO NOT use WS ever to actually heal 20 targets taking damage from a massive raid damage pulse. Instead, use it before the big raid AoE goes out and when there are only ~6 (ideally) injured people so that you can put all that extra healing into CBT.
Cloudburst Totem + High Tide combo
For the encounters with constant raid wide/ticking damage / short encounters.
Crucial Taunt is a community-oriented Horde guild on the US-Mug'thol server (connected realm with Akama & Dragonmaw) that is seeking mature and positive members looking for a long-term home. We're seeking adults who have a passion for the game and want to explore all types of content within a fun and vibrant atmosphere.
Lead by a Los Angeles based husband & wife team that previously had been progression raiding back through WOTLK. After Wrath we took a break for careers and child rearing, but late into Draenor we transferred to Mug'thol and started anew, building a guild that reflects our values of putting fun and community first in all aspects of the game.
Our progression raid team meets two nights a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30pm to 11:30pm PT (pacific is also server time). Any experience level is welcome as long as you're willing to learn, grow, and progress with the team. If we had to describe our raid style it would be "positively determined." We don't tolerate hardcore drama while we aim to consistently improve, give our best effort, and down new content.
We're looking for players who are going to log on more than twice a week for raid, who believe a social environment is an important and critical part of the success of a guild. We also expect our raiders to match the collective effort of the team, understanding their class and role, their gear requirements, and putting themselves in the best position to contribute meaningfully each and every week. Our raid team is 5/13 Mythic HFC after recently growing to the required twenty active raiders. We're open to recruiting any Mythic-ready raiders who fulfill a class/specs of need on our roster but we're no longer doing gear catch-up with so little time left in the expansion. More importantly, we're hoping to add several new faces as we fill out for LEGION.
Looking ahead to LEGION, we are recruiting the following class/specs for our 30-man Legion Raid Team which will be active at the expansion launch:
Hunter: Survival Mage: Arcane Rogue: Outlaw Warlock: Affliction - Demonology Warrior: Arms If you join the guild now for LEGION but are not interested in finishing out HFC with us you are still expected to be an active and social member of the guild's community until launch.
In Legion if/when we hit Mythic progression any and all active raiders on our 30-man squad who desire a shot at 20-man Mythic content will get the opportunity to participate.
More than Raiding
We are looking for players who want to find a spirited, mature, fun atmosphere whenever they log into WoW. Outside of raid times our players are constantly into other adventures. PVP and battlegrounds? Great. Mount, toy, pet collecting? Sure. Leveling, questing, altoholics? Awesome. No matter how you like to play WoW we're with you.
Guild founders and co-GMs are Druishbanker-Mug'thol (bnet joat#1832) and Lambkill-Mug'thol (bnet lambkill#1856).
We have a guild website where you can learn more about us and show your interest in joining at Crucial-Taunt.com.
We have a Discord server for chat/voice communication.
Please reach out to us in game, in bnet, or on our website forums if you have any questions or are interested in joining.
MISS HAVING A WOW FAMILY?
Do you miss the social aspect of WoW?
Having a family that will play all aspects of the game with you, and maybe other games?
<Volition> [5/13M] can help! We are a small semi-hardcore PVE focused horde guild on Emerald Dream (US) seeking new recruits! We are an extremely active, close group of friends seeking new raiders some LEGION raiding! Our aim is to hit the ground running for Legion raids (norm>heroic>mythic) and to reach mythic content ASAP.
Semi-hardcore you say? Let me explain. We have the expectations of a more serious group (attendance policy/loot council/performance policy) with the social family atmosphere of a causal group. We try our best to balance the two most efficiently. Progression is our priority, but so are long-lasting friendships.
Outside of raiding, we enjoy PVE content (challenge modes, mythic dgs, achieve runs) and PVP (drunk wpvp, arenas, rbgs). We welcome levelers and crazy PVPers, as our focus is to provide a positive, family-style, very social environment for both PVE & PVP. We get to know you and miss you when you're not on for a while. There are arenas going on every day of the week and we're in the process of forming 2 RBG groups. We have a small RP (mercenary style) group in the works as well. We play games outside of WoW together (Minecraft, Hearthstone, LoL, & Overwatch), and are very active off game on our facebook group.
We raid Tue/Wed/Thu from 8-11pm Server (CST). We use TS3 for voice chat. We use RCLoot council for loot distribution. We use a point system for attendance requirements. We use Fb Group for off game communication. It is required. Some folks create a FB for their toon if they're not comfortable using personal FB. What is Volition offering?
Progression. Although we like to have fun, we do take progression seriously. After a wipe, we actually improve. We are quick to call strat changes and our members are humble enough to know there is always room for personal improvement. An enjoyable raid environment. During trash pulls, we do like to crack jokes and we're a fun bunch! We support and help, not lay blame. Stability. Although we are a relatively new guild (1 yr+), our core raiders have been raiding together for some time (2 years+) & we're not going anywhere. A bunch of new friends! No cliques here. The second you join us you become part of the family. We like to hang out on TS outside of raid time, and we’re extremely active on our facebook off game. What are we looking for?
Commitment. Super important. In order to progress together, everyone has to be there. Of course RL things can get in the way, but someone who WANTS to come back and does every week is a must. We do have an attendance policy of 80% for core spots. This will be bumped up to 90% heroic+. Skill. A good knowledge of your class is necessary. You must be wanting to better yourself in and out of the raid via looking at logs, theorycrafters, itemization, etc. We do have a minimum DPS requirement. A sense of humor. You'll fit right in! This is part of what makes us a fun raiding environment! Maturity.[/b] We are 18+ and drama free so act like it! ;) We all enjoy the jokes but RL says clear coms, you clear coms. What roles are we seeking?
We are currently seeking ALL exceptional DPS and RDPS applicants for Legion raiding.

We are recruiting the following:
What We Expect Out of Our Recruits:

Third, we expect our recruits to be able to take criticism without making a fuss. We won't ever attack recruits for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders.
Finally, our guild/raid chat can get spicy sometimes, its very adult oriented, we expect our recruits to be able to handle our conversations and not become offended.
*We expect all our raiders to be on our realm in our guild to get priority looting.
Addons we require:
