RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
Now recruiting for BFA!
Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
Fun guild events are scheduled often!
Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
(18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
GOALS FOR BFA
In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic.
This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.)
SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
*The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
**Schedule subject to changes.

About us/What we're looking for :)
We are a long standing guild on Alonsus (2007) with a social and a heroic raiding focus looking for players to join the raid team ready for Battle for Azeroth.
As an adult guild with a focus on having fun and progressing at our own pace we're looking for like-minded individuals who know their class, can give and receive constructive feedback and most importantly want to have a good time with good people.
Outside of raiding we dip our toes into pretty much all other content so you can always find someone to run a M+ with you, and if you sweet talk them enough they might even join in with some PvP.
Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday during progress
Thursday & Sunday on farm
8pm - 11pm GMT (9pm - 12pm Server time)

- 18+ guild chat can sometimes be a little NSFW because there are some warped senses of humour in this guild.

If you're interested in raiding with us please fill out an application and an officer will be in contact. Social members need not fill this out.

Here is something I wanted to do for some time now. I recognized that some people complain about the prize of Hearthstone or that you can only achieve higher ranks when you pay real money. I don't want to discuss this topic here (also I totally disagree ;) ). Instead I want to give some advice how to manage your resources (so Gold and Dust) more wisely and therefore get better decks and more fun out of them.
You may deem some of the advice pretty expected, but maybe the "strategies" I run can still inspire you to wasting less and getting more. But I will still skip the obvious: get as much gold as possible, finish the Brawl every week etc.
Also Icy Veins (the side you are currently on) has a pretty nice Guide-Section too and I will try not to repeat the hints from there.
Finally: the hints are mainly for the standard-format.
1.) Know when to stop and save up.
After purchasing something like 50+ packs you will own nearly all commons, most of the rares, some epics and a few legendaries. So you will draw mainly cards you already own from additional packs. Since drawing cards is much better than crafting them (e.g. you basically save 300 dust, when you draw an epic card you would have crafted otherwise) saving your gold up for the next expansion can be much more valuable than buying more packs for the current set. Just head into your collection from time to time and check all the cards from the set you would have bought packs from. If you realize that you mainly missing out legendaries and a few epics it could be time to stockpile your gold (since the chance of drawing a specific epic or legendary is pretty slim anyways). You should be able to have 3000 to 5000 gold at the start of the next expansion that way.
2.) Only disenchant "useless" cards when you need the dust for a specific reason.
Sometimes cards that are deemed useless or bad at the beginning of the meta can turn out to be quite powerful later on (e.g. Evolve before and after the release of Doppelgangster). There would be nothing more frustrating than having to craft a card you already disenchanted two sets ago.
So be very very careful when disenchanting cards that are still legal in standard and never disenchant them only to pile up dust. You can always disenchant a card you own but never take it back.
3.) Use placeholders and build "prototype"-decks first.
This is a difficult one. Many people want to try out new and innovative decks. This can be quite expensive and you don't know beforehand if the deck will be any good and (most importantly) fun. Thats why it can be a good idea to test out the main functionality of the deck by replacing less important cards with similar (weaker) ones and find out that way if the deck is fun to play with.
For example: you can play many aggressive decks in the past without (the old) Patches the Pirate by replacing him and the "pirate-package" with other low cost cards. It may be way weaker but the main structure of the deck often stays the same. Other examples would be Cubelock without N'Zoth, the Corruptor or Spell-Hunter without Rhok'delar.
4.) Wait for the meta to settle.
It is pretty obvious. Don't get carried away by the hype of a new set and craft everything that people call powerful. Cards can quickly fall out of relevance. Not only because they are worse than people thought, but often because the meta turns out to be unfitting for the respective deck. Taunt-Warrior is an example for this. Both Fire Plume's Heart and the Hunter-Quest were hyped, but fell out of relevance rather quickly.
5.) try to craft cards with a wider use first.
Some cards can only be played in one specific deck and it is pretty obvious from the first spoilers onward that they are. Twin Emperor Vek'lor or basically all the Quests are perfect examples. When you don't know what to play and/or you want to play a bigger variety of decks it can be a good idea to spend your dust on cards that are playable in a bigger range of decks and classes. Obviously neutral cards fit this idea more often.
Examples are: N'Zoth, the Corruptor for all sorts of Deathrattle-Decks, Kazakus for every type of Highlander-Deck, Alexstrasza or Leeroy Jenkins for combo- or OTK-decks and so on.
I play Hearthstone regular since "goblin vs gnomes" and was able to play multiple competitive decks with multiple classes without buying a single pack for real money. But I always had to be very stingy how I spend my resources and I believe that other people have to be too, to get high on the ladder while still having fun and trying out new decks.
Do you have any additional advices how to get more out of your hard earned gold?
