Discord: [discordapp .com /invite/nemE8kv]
<Insomnia> was created for the sole purpose of providing those who can’t attend the traditional raiding schedule with an environment focused on progression raiding. We enjoy a manageable raid schedule that while unique, works well for busy students, those with difficult work schedules, and anyone that enjoys staying up a bit later than usual. With this in mind, we classify ourselves as a “Semi-Hardcore” late-night guild that provides a niche for players who wish to experience this game at a competitive level while also having competitive professional and family lives out of game. We want to have fun while expecting the best out of every player!
What We Are Looking For We prioritize recruiting dedicated and skilled players over the most optimal class, so anyone will be considered even if our comp does not currently call for that class/spec. We also place great value on anyone able to play all specs available to their class well and/or keep geared alts to be used for other roles on progression.
What We Expect Of You We expect every trial and raider to: Maintain an attendance of at least 80% Watch videos or read up on boss mechanics before progression starts Know that being stand-by/benched can be completely unavoidable depending on what the boss we’re progressing calls for (This is where being able to play multiple classes and roles comes in handy) Be able to take constructive criticism regarding performance Report absences in the discord channel specifically for this purpose Always be willing to improve Have a stable internet connection and a working microphone
What You Can Expect Of Us As a trial or raider you can expect: A stable raid environment An officer team with the raiders’ best interests in mind To be notified if you’re starting to under-perform and which part of your performance could be improved A fair analysis of individual players’ raid performance (We don’t just look at dps!), more info on this below How We Analyze Raid Performance We check our raiders’ performance by manually going through every pull on our logs, what we watch out for is as follows (and in order of importance) Wipes Caused Due To Incorrect Handling Of Boss Mechanic > Avoidable Deaths > Avoidable Damage Taken > Boss Mechanics Not Performed Correctly (Debuff Spreads, etc) > Add Damage > Boss Damage There are exceptions, such as damage to crawgs on Zul, which ideally should be much lower than the damage dealt to the boss (some classes do deal passive AoE damage or as part of their ST rotation, this is also taken into consideration) Overall, we consider mechanics performance to be a lot more important than DPS, but it’s also vital to not be dealing low DPS, this is something you would be notified of should it be the case.
