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)

      <Continuum> - [Chamber of Aspects][H] are recruiting!
      Current Progress: 4/11 Mythic Antourus
      We are a close knit and friendly community with an aim to push content. To our members we offer a mature environment, where people from all backgrounds can come together and play.
        We are looking for dedicated and reliable players that want to play the best of their ability and succeed while enjoying the game. We have an active Discord community and chatty members that play various games together! As well as raiders, we also accept social players that just want to play in an active environment with a good atmosphere.
      Looking towards Battle for Azeroth, we will be raiding as soon as possible and aiming for curves and mythic content. We do frequent Mythic+ dungeons as a guild as well as classic raids, older tiers and achievement runs.
      Our Leadership team is made up of many long time players that have extensive experience in all aspects of the game, especially in raiding.
      What we expect from our raiders:
      -Preparation: Know your class / spec well and come to raid prepared with knowledge of tactics and boss abilities - Raid  awareness is important.
      -Attendance: We ask our raiders to be reliable and the ability to have high raid attendance is essential. 
      -Attitude: Be patient, progression raiding can be both time consuming and frustrating. Don't blame people as it won't  really help anyone and be able to admit mistakes.
      Raiders can expect a focused raiding atmosphere, especially during progression content. We show NO favoritism, everyone must perform.
      When applying to the guild your logs will be taken into consideration and a trial period will apply. 
      We use Discord and the ability to listen in raids is mandatory - a working mic is beneficial but not essential. We are an English speaking guild, so a basic knowledge of English is required.
      We are always on the look out for new raiders - all roles and specs are considered!
      (It is an advantage for Healers to have a DPS offspec)

      Raid Schedule:

      (Grouping at 19.45)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      11/11 H - AoTC
      5/11 - Mythic
      Tue/Thur/Sun 630-930 pm PST
      Fri - Optional fun run for alts/friends and family
      Currently accepting exceptional and positive players of any class for the Mythic progression.
      Melee: OPEN -- Desired: Rogue, Ret, DH, Fury, Feral Ranged: OPEN -- Desired: MM Hunter, Boomkin, Ele Sham Healer: OPEN -- Desired: Resto Druid Off-spec FLEX Tanks Defiance is a casual-core or semi hardcore guild that raids and runs Mythic+'s but we always try to find something to do every day of the week while hanging out together in Discord. We have done the top 100 thing in past expansions. We don't call it quits when content gets rough, we review our strat, adjust as needed and get back to it. With that being said, we want to make progress but we are more concerned with just enjoying the game and each other's company.
      We are not interested in the elitists and nobody likes a know it all, just have a positive attitude. We work to build an environment and community that players want to log into everyday and enjoy. Doing so helps prevent burnout so we can enjoy endgame content without all the stress most Mythic raid environments endure.
      Feel free to add our battletags to get in touch with us. We look forward to hearing from you!
