Established in 2009, Cyrus is a guild with its roots in MMO games reaching back to Warhammer Online. We are an organised and dedicated guild completely committed to getting the best out of our players while trying to keep track of where the fun is. We aren't afraid to put the hard work in, try out new strategies and we certainly aren't the type to give up after the first wipe - we will adapt, refocus and find a way to reach our objective.

Although Cyrus has at times been considered an elite guild, we are certainly not looking for elitist players. We value teamwork and positive attitude far more than individual ego and rhetoric. We recognise that we are only as good as those we run with, and that means if we want to improve we must improve not only ourselves but those around us. This is not achieved through bragging, whining or quitting - it's achieved through patience, practise and hard work. It's not about how good any individual is, it's about how good your group is and how you can work with others to improve it.

Cyrus is not a casual guild, and we have been greatly put off by the increasingly casual nature of MMOs recently. To us, guild and realm pride should mean something. We don't spam invite players, we ask members to apply to join us because they see something in us that they want to participate in. And in return, we work tirelessly to place the right people in the right groups, increase our players awareness and knowledge of the game and their class, and to organise varied and epic guild events that we will remember for years to come.

If you are looking to make your journey through World of Warcraft Classic legendary, and you are prepared to put the time and effort in to maximise not only your own, but your teams play style and skill, then Cyrus is the guild for you. You will need a thick skin, a good sense of humour, the discipline to know when to speak up and when to shut up, and the dedication to constantly evolve and improve.

This is a condensed version of our guild history. To read the full version, please click here.

We started life in Warhammer Online in March 2009 (originally called Exodus) and became the largest and most active Order PvP guild on the Karak-Norn server. We played a central role in co-ordinating our faction, hosting cross-alliance community initiatives to try and bring the many guilds and alliances on the server together in an attempt to take the fight to the numerically superior Destruction side.

We later moved to Aion where we became a top 10 ranked Elyos PvP guild on the Perento server. Intending to pursue our enjoyment of PvP, we were one of the primary guilds in the early days of the game, however the severe PvE grind and lack of meaningful PvP content meant that our player base changed somewhat and we became more of a PvE guild with occasional raids in the Abyss. We refocused when the ground PvP patch was released and had a lot more fun.

In Rift we combined these two playstyles and became unquestionably the most successful and talked about PvP guild on our server, all the while maintaining competitive PvE raids that cleared all content in the game. We were yet again the leading guild when it came to organising our faction, setting up server-wide PvP events to increase participation and enjoyment for all in the game.

Such was our success in the PvP lakes that we eventually ran out of opposition to fight against, so we transferred servers looking for new challenges. Our influence was so great that most guilds from both factions followed our move, and within a few weeks our previous server was transformed from the busiest EU PvP server to a trial realm!

After a brief spell in SWTOR, which was completely awful, we moved to World of Warcraft (Horde, Stormscale) in 2012. While we obviously didn’t find any Open World PvP, we did enjoy the challenges of running three Rated Battlegrounds teams, with the occasional Raid to pass the time. During our first full Rated Battlegrounds season we managed to take a group of mostly new-to-WoW players to a legitimate 2200+ rating, something that was not so simple to do as a guild in this game with all the win-traders and cheats.

Cyrus in WoW. From zero to 2200+, proving the doubters wrong! 

Since then, we have dabbled in Final Fantasy XIV and been back to WoW. But these were the beginning of barren times, as games such as Guild Wars 2 and Wildstar, which should have been natural homes for guilds such as ours, failed to deliver on expectations. In 2016 we launched 'Club Cyrus' - a more casual multiplayer gaming initiative enabling us to at least play something together - Rocket League, The Division, Chivalry, Ghost Recon, etc. And while these games each gave us many hours of light entertainment, we have always yearned for an MMO to come along and do it old-school again, to give us a real home to stick with and build our characters and guild over 1000's of hours. Something that requires old-school effort, commitment and team work. Something that can help us escape our drab real lives, and instead transform into better looking, more in-shape, possibly even female (!) avatars with gloriously pixelated wardrobes that speak of our daring and courageous deeds on the virtual battlefield!

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

While we have a strong core that are committed to giving up their social lives from August 27th, we need more bodies to throw on the pile. That’s where you come in! Cyrus is an 'old school' MMO guild, and we are looking for members who want to become part of a greater community, who want to put the effort in and earn their achievements rather than get carried.

We are looking for intelligent, active and friendly players to join our ranks. In World of Warcraft Classic, we are hoping to create a successful guild with outstanding organisation, solid progression and a shared objective. We want dedicated and reliable players who are in it for the long haul, who will not quit at the first or second hurdle, and will hold out for the payoff that such a team of players deserve. No elitism, no egos, and plenty of patience, reality and understanding. Ok, maybe a little bit of elitism!

Members should take the time to learn their class and skills, and how they can best benefit their guild teams. Being an excellent individual player is great, but it is far more important to be an excellent team player, to follow instructions, and to know when to stop joking around, focus, and stop standing in the lava! Your goals should be that of the guild as a whole, not of yourself.

Members are required to use Discord and have a clear, working microphone. We welcome members from all over the world, however we do ask that in guild chat and Discord English is used at all times.

 

WHAT WE CAN OFFER

Cyrus is an experienced, focused, progression-based guild for mature, skilled and team-orientated players. We offer Discord voice communications with a mostly family-friendly atmosphere, as well as our own website which is used to organise pretty much everything we do. We have a long-established leadership who is committed to getting the most out of our members and ensuring everyone is working towards their own and the common goals of the guild.

Guild levelling PvP event in Rift. If you haven't experienced being in a really great guild before, get it right for WoW Classic!

We have a strong community spirit, and thanks to our successful recruitment in previous games, a very welcoming attitude towards new members of any experience level so long as they are prepared to put the time in. We do not form cliques, and we do not favour members based on their time or rank within the guild.

While Cyrus’ main objective will be clearing raid content, we are a guild steeped in the rich tradition of PvP and as such, you can expect organised Battlegrounds and World PvP nights. Our current plan is to raid two evenings per week, provisionally on Wednesdays and Sundays.

 

HOW TO APPLY

If this sounds like your kind of guild, then please check out our website, read our Guild Code, and feel free to apply on our forums. Please also feel free to include any questions you may have with your application.

      Hey. I'm Justice, GM of <Indomitus> on Horde Draenor EU. <Indomitus> is a recently made guild born from the ambition and devotion of progression focused players. We have a strong core of players with Mythic backgrounds and we are eager to try for Cutting Edge in Shadowlands and so we formed <Indomitus> to have that Mythic progression focus. We're currently 10/10 HC and 5/10M and looking for more people to join us in Mythic Castle Nathria. Our current goal is to clear as many Mythic encounters as possible this tier whilst building a strong and stable roster for the next and future tiers so we can push progression early.
      We’ve also recently begun a Friday evening Heroic/alt run and are happy to accept players looking for a more relaxed Heroic experience.
      Additionally, we're also looking for fun players who focus on Mythic+ or even just socialising. As we're a relatively new guild now is the perfect time to join to help shape the future of the guild and become an integral part of it.
      [Raiding Schedule]:
      Mythic: Tuesday & Thursday 8pm - 11pm realm time
      Heroic/Alt Run: Friday 8pm - 11pm realm time
      [Recruitment]:
      • Balance Druid
      • Unholy DK
      • Warlock
      [Requirements]:
      • We have a set of guild rules on our discord that cover the usual things you'd expect to see, e.g. no toxicity, hate speech or harassment, being a good team player and things like that.
      • We have a set of raiding rules on our discord that cover things like researching encounters, knowing your class and being proactive in improving, being reliable and punctual and having a microphone.

      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 80% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      We generally aim to push Mythic+ to get +15 keys done for the weekly chests. We do this in spirit to help everyone in the guild getting their highest possible gear reward from their weekly cache (socials included).
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skilfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      CURRENTLY:
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot’s way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays, and also we’re on RBGs killing alliance scums every Saturday or on other in game activities if not on RBGs!
      Our current guild progress is 6/10 in Castle Nathria mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress in Shadowlands. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!

      Who we are: |[H]| Herod Server| TBC Classic |Guild: Chaos|
       < Chaos >  is a newly formed guild comprised of a mix of returning TBC veterans,  Classic Raiders, Mythic raiders and Arena players. We are all excited to be enjoying TBC again! We are a Semi-Hardcore / Casual guild that will do PvE progression and will be clearing all of the content while having a good time. We are looking for more like minded players to round out our core heading into TBC Classic. We will also have a strong PvP culture for those of you more interested in Arenas & BG's, and will be recruiting Socials for those of you who don't necessarily have the time/need to be a Raider but would like to fill in raids or PvP teams as needed. This is a great time for those who are worried about not having a guaranteed raid spot in your current guild and are looking for a home where you will. Also, for any returning TBC players without a guild this could be a great place for you! Pst for more info!
      Raid Schedule:                                                    Tuesday 8:00p-11:00p EST                                     Wednesday 8:00p-11:00p EST                                                                                
      Raid Expectations:
      All raiders should come prepared for each raid, including encounter knowledge and required consumables, and items. Professions are not required to min/max but players should be trying to get BIS gear to assist raid progress. Example: Cloth DPS should be tailoring as that crafting gear is extremely strong. 
      Talking and having fun is welcome during trash pulls and having fun with farm content. Communication should be clear for new content and boss pulls. We encourage all guild members to play with each other in and out of raid to promote a positive environment for all to enjoy.     
      PVP Expectations:
      Players who want to PVP should use the guild as a resource to help find new and old players to make arena teams, enjoy the game, and push ratings to the best of their abilities. PVE player's should be capping each week to get BIS items such as weapons.
      Loot:
      Chaos will be using loot council. This will take into account BIS needs, players who pass gear to others, attendance, and attitude. We will be using an addon called: RCLootCouncil. This speeds up the LC process and is transparent for members.
      High priority or high demand items will be decided by loot council discussion. These are most likely to go to players who plan to stay with the guild for the long-term.
      Recruitment:
      Hunter: Low
      Warlock: Low
      Shaman: Medium (1 Resto, 1 Ele, 1 Enhance needed)
      Priest: Open (Shadow, Healing, Divine Spirit Priest)
      Paladin: Open (Prot, Holy, Ret with OS prot for Kara)
      Druid: Open (1 Boomy, 1 Resto druid, 1 Feral Tank)
      Warrior: Low (1 arms warrior with OS Prot for Kara.)
      Mage - Closed
      Rogue - Closed
       - For Hybrid classes. Not required but encouraged to Dual spec for 10 man runs to help rotate and get all players the gear they need and have the correct roster and number of players.
      - Alts can also be considered for this as we go forward as long as they are at MIN pre BIS and/or have other minimum raid requirements.
      Note: T4 will be a bit more flexible for the start of the expansion due to number of 10 mans vs 25 mans. We will have raid sign ups to help make this easier on raiders. Going toward the end of T4 and into T5+ we will solidify a consistent 25 man core.
      Leadership Opportunities:
      Guild leadership has experience in Retail and Classic with guild management and raid leading. With depth of knowledge of the game.
      (2 Officer positions are open at this time. Feel free to ask about opportunities within the guild. Some class officer opportunities may be available for classes/specs that are more stacked such as hunter and warlock. Example: Hunter class lead would be assisting with setting up misdirection pulls.
      If interested in more information please inquire in discord

      Faction : Horde
      The Big Lebowski invite you to venture beyond the Dark Portal with us…
      Raid Times
      Wednesday 19:00 to 22:00 Realm Time
      Sunday 19:00 to 22:00 Realm Time
      Approach to Raiding
      Like most people, we have busy lives so we will be adhering to a 2 night raiding schedule for current content, this doesn’t mean alt runs etc will not be scheduled if there is enough demand but they would be purely optional for those who have to spend time doing the constant IRL rep grind with their partners etc.
      Despite this relaxed approach we still expect our raiders to come prepared and perform well to ensure we’re clearing content efficiently whilst sill having fun. Previously we have had no issues clearing content on this limited raiding schedule and expect that to continue in TBC classic.
      About us
      The Big Lebowski started life as a group of friends who met playing CS 1.6 many moons ago (that shows how old some of us are).
      We then evolved into a World of Warcraft Guild back in around 2007 and established ourselves as a solid guild with a good balance of raiding progression with a social relaxed vibe. A lot of our founding members literally grew up with TBC and we all understand the balance between in game and real life commitments (we’d all like to be in game more, right?)
      We have always enjoyed being part of a strong community of like minded players and have recently reformed in Classic with the anticipation of TBC where we had some of our best times as a group and online community.
      What We Offer
      A mature environment for levelling and group play
      Progressive but relaxed end game experience
      A fun, helpful and inclusive atmosphere

      What We Expect
      People willing to help build and grow a serious, successful and fun TBC raiding guild
      Our Aims
      Expand the Guild
      Run Raids before TBC is released
      Recruitment Status
      Tanks : High
      Healers : High
      Ranged DPS : High
      Melee DPS : High
      Now the rebuild of the guild has been in full swing we have a solid foundation of original and new members ready for TBC, we are currently still welcoming all classes of all levels to join us, however we are still seeking level 60’s to experience some classic raiding as a team before TBC is launched.
