[US-Mal'Ganis][H] <Spike Flail> HFC: 13/13 M, Rogue/Mage/Warlock/Warrior

2 posts in this topic

We are a former top top 10 Heroic progression guild, returning for WoD after taking a break in MoP. We've done the 4 night a week thing and as our group of players has grown and aged, we've decided to keep the same hardcore progression mentality on a more time friendly schedule for. As such we raid 2/3 nights a week with raiding times as follows:

 

Sunday from 7-11 PM EST

Wednesday from 8 PM EST- 11 PM EST

Thursday from 8 PM EST - 11 PM EST (Tentatively/As Needed) 

 

We've been around since TBC on Ner'zhul, including top ranked US progression in WoLK 25m. In Cataclysm we decided to focus on the 10m raiding model; where we hovered in the top 25 of US progress for most of the expansion. After calling it quits in MOP, we returned with the same raiding crew and leadership from WoLK/Cata for WoD progression, on our new home Mal'ganis.

 

About Spike Flail:

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 to focus on the 10m raiding model to maintain a more intimate and less recruitment-heavy environment, and finishing in the top 30-50 US.

 

We took a break after Cata but as a group remained playing together throughout the years, moving to FF14 and other less time-consuming games. When WoD was announced we had that itch again, and the majority of our core raiding team returned to push progression again, on a much less demanding schedule. We have the same leadership and raiding core as we did all the way back in TBC/WoLK/Cata; not many guilds can say that.

 

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 as a guild. 

 

What we're looking for:

 

As 2/3 day/week guild, we need to make every hour we play count. As such we're looking for players who's attitudes and personality fit in with our current group of players. Some general requirements:

 

Past Progression experience. We're looking for apps who have been a part of top progression pushes in past content, or are at least Mythic experienced in the current content. 

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. 

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.

 

Our specific class needs are as follows: 

 

 

  • High Priority:
  • Rogue 
  • Paladin (Healer)
  • Mage
  • Boomkin
  • Druid (Balance)
  • Druid (Feral)
  • Priest (Holy and Disc proficient)'
  • Hunter
  • Warlock
  • Warrior(Fury/Arms)
A Note: We are not recruiting this many players. We simply have a lot of options available to what classes we can take. Some members have alts/offspecs they can choose to if we find a certain class. We also just have a general need for good players, so we're open to most classes at the moment. That's why we have so many on our list.

 

How to contact us:

If you're interested in applying, you can visit our forums at www.spikeflail.com 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 Mal'ganis and chat with (Pallinn - Palin#1620 Btag) Melbu (Mellbufrahma - melbufrahma#1499) or myself (nikolai#1962)

      Almost Heroes - Area 52
      2 Night Raiding Guild / 8 Hours 
      7/7H -> 6/7M -> 3/3N -> 2/3H
      Raid Times: (CST)
      Sunday: 9pm-1am
      Monday: 9pm-1am
      Formed in December 2015
      HFC: 10/13M - US 1300, Realm 34 (3 raid weeks spent in Mythic)
      About Almost Heroes:
      We believe in pushing content at a pace that is comfortable but still competitive. By the end of Nighthold, we intend to be sub US 200, and unlike most guilds that you will see in the recruitment forums, we are going to do what it takes to get there. When you join Almost Heroes, you can expect to fully clear each tier. 
      Our definition of hardcore raiding is making the most out of our time together. Since we only raid 8 hours each week, it is up to each member to come completely prepared for the fights that we'll be working on. Raiders are expected to be highly self-motivated, and willing to find out the latest theorycraft data on their classes. Raiders should always be pushing themselves to improve with each raid week, and should never be satisfied with their performance.
      Every raider is required to have at least one raid-ready alt that they can play just as well as their main for split runs and/or better comp selections. Your alt must also cover the same role as your main. For example, healer/healer, tank/tank, etc.
      Current Roster Needs for Emerald Nightmare:
      Ranged DPS:
      -Balance Druid
      -MM Hunter
      -Shadow Priest
      All exceptional players are encouraged to apply regardless of what we're currently recruiting
      Recruitment:
      We do not recruit for the bench, if your application is accepted it means that we believe that there is a spot that can be earned, unless we mention otherwise on your application.
      All applications are handled on our website. When submitted, check back on it often, we'll be asking you questions and will follow up with you through it. Put time and effort on your application, it's our first (and often only) impression of you. Make it count!

      About
      Our goal is to have an active community during the week and successful progression during the weekends while maintaining a casual atmosphere. We started out the expansion as a bunch of players looking for something to do in our spare time and, after a hefty purge, have settled on doing more with that time.
      Raids (Server)
      Thursday 8pm - 11pm
      Friday 9pm - 1am
      Saturday 9pm - 1am
      Status (Pre-Purge. Expect More.)
      6/7 Heroic EN
      2/3 Normal ToV
      Misc
      Loot: Individual until we settle on a core roster
      Voice: Discord
      Recruitment
      At the moment we're in need of Druid/Sham/Pally/Priest heals as well as all DPS classes. Higher item level is of course better but anything above 850 to start out is fine.

      We are a smaller relaxed group of progression raiders that want to start working on killing some mythic bosses. We currently float around 15 raiders and are looking to add to our core for mythics. If you like the smaller guild setting, and a relaxed progression style we would be a great fit for you. Would need to be on our server or to transfer here.
