Divine Retribution is an 9 year old Alliance Guild on Arathor/Hellfire server and is recruiting for 8.3. We got Cutting Edge in BoD and are currently 7/8 in EP.
We have a couple of raid spots for skilled DpS players wanting to raid Mythic in Ny’alotha. We are particularly interested in a DH but we would be happy to consider other dps classes as what is most important to us is that you are a good fit for our team. We are really interested in is WHO you are rather than the class you play.
The Small Print!
Finding the right Guild is important when we spend so much time here in WoW, so this post is lengthy so we can set out our stall and not waste your time or ours recruiting the wrong people. We have been around for 9 years, we aren’t going anywhere - having weathered the trials and tribulations of 5 expansions before BfA and having successfully moved from 10 man to 20 man raiding. So you can be sure of joining a well established Guild.
So who are we?
A lot of new members tell me that we remind them of their old Vanilla Guild. Here’s why:
We are competitive - we like progress and we take our raids, though not ourselves, seriously. However, for us the joy of getting that bloody awful HC/Mythic boss, that we have been wiping on for a week, down… is more about WHO we achieved it with than what upgrades to our ilvl we got over the rest of the team. We don’t whine when we wipe, we dance when we down.
We recognize that this is a game, people have busy lives outside it - so the time we spend here together should be as stress free as possible, should avoid Guild Drama, should give everyone in the guild an opportunity to progress and make friends. I say ‘busy’ rather than ‘real’ lives because here at DR we make real friends, we meet up in ‘real’ life, so for us WoW, although a ‘game’ and not put before our day-to-day lives outside the guild, is a part of our real lives. This spills over into the way we behave with each other. We are not faceless fingers behind a computer screen, so we show each other respect and take an interest in each other. At the same time, we are not a therapeutic community, our Officers are not psychologists, so we also don’t encourage needy, attention-seeking SLS (Special Little Snowflakes). We are just a bunch of well adjusted, mature - lovely people that enjoy playing WoW enormously.
Our ages range between 20 and 50+ and we have a good mix of female and male players. We hail from all over the EU. Our younger players are mature for their age, and our old timers can still shake their stuff! Given the wide age range and mix of guys and girls as well as a pretty good coverage of most eu countries and therefore mix of cultures, our guild/raid chat is mature, often hilarious, but we manage to avoid having the kind of situation where for example; a girl logs on and five 13 year old lads go into panic mode and start reaching for the tissues… u know wat I mean ;p
We don’t have a member list of hundred’s and we do like to know everyone in the guild, not have people sign on and be ignored because no-one knows who they are. In order to do this, we keep our recruitment and therefore member roster small.
We have formed some great friendships over the years but we pride ourselves on how welcome we make new friends feel. We have held annual Guild Meetings for the past 9 years and these events, while not obligatory, have been enormous fun and really helped build the team atmosphere we are so proud of. We are also very well organized, we tend to think that a relaxed fun atmosphere and end-game progression go hand in hand if there is a structure behind it.
We raid: (7.45pm for invites, Boss pull @8pm)
Wednesday 7.45 -11.30
Sunday 7.45 -11.00
Monday 7.45 -11.00
So, if you are looking for an ‘Old Style’ new WoW home, please reply here. You can also take a look at our website: www.divine-retribution.eu. Feel free to whisper Ellz (Arathor) in-game for a chat. RL ID Ellz#21767 We don’t do written applications; attitude and personality are far more important to us than ilvl and long lists of achievements and that is much easier to gauge in a chat.
Thanks for your time!
