<These ARE My Glasses> is a semi-casual weekend raiding guild that focuses on Heroic-only raiding. We take pride in downing bosses in a relaxed, chill atmosphere while having a great time with friends and laughing at adult humor while doing so. While focus and professionalism is important, we take great pride in the fact that individuals who comprise our team are the kind of folks who understand how to do both simultaneously to great effect. We're re-engaging this thread for the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth!
Our leadership is versed in end-game PvE and PvP content ranging from DAOC, EQ, NwN, SWTOR, SW:G, and Destiny. We are not a console-based guild, and believe in the PCMR. We don't take ourselves too seriously, nor do we expect you to. Try hards are NOT welcome in this guild. We are a tight knit group of people and intend to stay that way. We are looking for long-term guild mates, and folks who enjoy playing video games at a high level. High level meaning you know your class, and intend to do what you need to do personally to perform as well as possible. We aren't here to hold your hand and tell you what to do, we just expect you to show up and know what you're doing 🙂
Our objectives are as follows:
- Having a good time, and not sacrificing performance in doing so. We love to have a good time during raids, but of course collective understanding and mechanical execution is as important. This means listening when you need to, and not cluttering Discord when the situation isn't conducive to clowning around.
- Being competitive in Mythic+. We want to continue to improve. This environment can be stressful, but it is completely OPTIONAL. Being a part of the weekend raiding team does not mean you have to participate in Mythic+, but it is encouraged as it can only make you a better player!
Guild events are as follows:
-Mythic+ Dungeons daily during the evenings (Currently 15+). If you aren't there yet, we can get you there!
-Raids are Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm-12pm EST - we often go a bit later in order to finish a raid clear or if we are close to completion on a progression fight.
Now let's talk about what we're looking for and what we offer YOU. We are looking for community members who are here for more than just enjoying the World of Warcraft, but appreciate theory crafting, game discussion, upcoming developments, lore, and game mechanics. We are a community of gamers interested in a variety of games - Joining <These ARE My Glasses> is more than just joining a WoW guild, you're joining a family and established community.
What we offer you:
-A constantly updated raid roster, and raid leaders who develop strategies on a by-player basis to assist with execution during progression
-A dedicated discord server that is constantly populated with members of the community, guild leadership, and everything in between. Participation in Discord is paramount to community development
-Like-minded community that understand the importance of progression, and understands constraints/limitations. A prime reason for us establishing Mythic dungeon-only groups. We've identified while a lot of people will want to raid, just not everyone has the time to dedicate to it
What we're looking for:
-Active players interested in end-game progression (Heroic raiding/M+) - but not bleeding edge. We are always pushing the football down the field, but if you're looking for a guild that is raiding three to five nights a week to defeat cutting-edge content, we aren't it. At least for now anyway. We aren't a loot farming guild you can join to join your Mythic raiding group; we sniff out scumbags and remove them if they somehow happen to slip by my bull!@#$ sniffing machine
-Players interested in the understanding and discussion of player/game mechanics. This one is huge. Know your class, and if you aren't quite there yet, don't be afraid to ask for help or guidance!
-Positive, mature, and goal-oriented players. Progression can get annoying, and wiping forty or fifty times for one reason or another can really get to someone. It's a part of progression. Maturity is a must-have, we are an 18+ guild. No, that doesn't mean we can't sniff out a 30 year-old child either. Criticism can feel harsh, but we only do it to improve our guild performance as a whole. This is a two-way street. Drama, undermining relationships, or the inability to be an adult and solve problems as such are not welcome in this guild
Thanks for taking the time to read this post, and we look forward to seeing you in Azeroth!

There's been some changes to the way Blizzard handle PvP disqualifications, specifically those from end of season rewards. Players that have been disqualified from receiving these rewards will also be unable to queue for rated matches in the same season. More details below:
Season Disqualification (source)
As part of our continued efforts to combat cheating and unfair play in World of Warcraft, we’ve recently made a change to our policies regarding PvP disqualifications.
As of the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, any player who is found to have engaged in unfair practices that result in their disqualification from end-of-season PvP rewards will also have their ability to queue for rated PvP matches immediately revoked. This restriction will continue through the remainder of the season in which they were disqualified, which includes the current “Post-Season” available until Battle for Azeroth launches.
This change is intended to minimize the impact that disqualified players have on those who are playing legitimately while the PvP season continues, and is just one aspect of our ongoing commitment to upholding the competitive integrity of World of Warcraft PvP.
We have the trifecta of hotfixes in three days, with today's bringing even more class tweaks, the cap for gold transfers upped to 1 million gold, enemy HP significantly reduced in EN, ToV, Nighthold and ToS, as well as the now standard quest, profession and dungeon bug fixes.
July 20 (source)
Monk The Earth and Fire clone from Storm, Earth, and Fire should correctly mimic Rushing Jade Wind, regardless of the player’s target. Paladin Protection Fixed a bug preventing the Light’s Vanguard Battleplate 4-piece bonus from activating and deactivating as intended. Fixed an issue where Consecration occasionally failed to provide its self-buff. Rogue Assassination Fixed a bug where Blindside was not learnable until level 40. Warlock Demonology The Command Demon version of Spell Lock can no longer be cast without a target. Demonic Calling can now correctly be activated by casting Demonbolt.
Characters at level 110 and above may now move up to 1,000,000 gold when performing a Character Transfer.
Creatures and NPCs
Fixed a visual bug that caused some characters to lose the tops of their heads.
Dungeons and Raids
The health and damage of all enemies in Emerald Nightmare, Trial of Valor, The Nighthold, and Tomb of Sargeras has been significantly reduced. The experience awarded on completion of a random dungeon has been increased. Antorus, the Burning Throne Fixed a bug preventing Death's Advance from functioning correctly in certain encounter situations, such as Aggramar’s Flame Rend. Eye of Azshara Damage dealt by Lightning Strike, Warlord Parjesh’s Crashing Wave, and Quicksand have been significantly reduced. The Nexus Chaotic Energy Bursts from Chaotic Rifts no longer inflict excessive damage. Obsidian Sanctum Sartharion’s Large Satchel of Spoils should again contain loot. Return to Karazhan Mana Confluences’ Ablative Shield should no longer absorb an excessive amount of damage. Utgarde Keep Dragonflayer Runecaster’s Bolthorn's Rune of Flame now deals less damage. Items
Darkmoon Deck: Promises no longer reduces some non-mana resources. Fixed a bug that prevented banners from granting expected honor, experience, and reputation bonuses. Fishing Chair and Nat's Fishing Chair have been temporarily converted into objects that are not chairs, while a bug with their functionality is fixed. They will return to their former function in a future patch.
Player versus Player
Adjusted PvP scaling to reduce the difference in power and damage between players of different item levels at level 110. Fixed a bug preventing some players from obtaining Honorable Medallion while PvP-enabled.
Fishing Fixed a bug that caused the wrong sound when casting.
Fixed a bug with the reputation bonus on completion of "Death to Agogridon". If you previously completed the quest, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive your reward. The talking quest NPC should no longer appear for players who are nearby, but are not the Hunter on “Never Hunt Alone”. Players should again be able to complete “All Charged Up”. Fixed a bug with the conversation required for “Secrets of Wrymskull Uncovered”, allowing completion of “The Echo of Ymiron”. Low-level players are now able to do appropriate damage to the Devilsaur Queen during "The Ballad of Maximillian”. “Pitching In” can again be completed. World
It is again possible to earn credit toward "Field Photographer" when using the S.E.L.F.I.E. cam anywhere within the Path of Uther. Alliance characters can again complete "Uther's Blessing" by approaching Uther's statue. Previous 8.0.1 hotfixes:
July 19th July 18th
You can reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Patch 8.0.1. A bug prevented players that have already completed the questline to get reputation boost. Luckily, this has been fixed by Blizzard in North America and a hotfix will be up soon in Europe as well. The fix requires a server restart.
Both reputations count toward the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement that rewards "the Esteemed" title and a mount (Pureheart Courser). You can find more details about how to start the questline here. If you completed Death to Agogridon before the pre-patch, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive the reputation boost.

Players continue to discover hidden perks of the 8.0 pre-patch. Redditor fgmenth noticed that it's possible to reach Exalted reputation standing with the Gelkis and Magram Clan Centaurs in Desolace.
Update: A hotfix went live that allows players to directly talk to Marnum Marshweaver in Desolace after having completed Death to Agogridon. Check out this post for more details.
The cool thing is that you only need to complete a couple of quests to get to Exalted and both factions count toward the new 100 Exalted Reputations that rewards "the Esteemed" title and the Pureheart Courser mount.
Maraudine Prisoner Manifest is needed to start the quest chain and the item drops from Maraudine Maulers in Desolace. You need to complete some quests in order for it to drop, more details can be found here. Completing the final quest will give you enough reputation with both factions to instantly reach Exalted.
