<Pixelated> is a semi-hardcore 20-man mythic raiding guild on US-Deathwing, ranked #142 in the US for HFC progression, and first on our server after we killed mythic Archimonde back in December. Thank goodness the endless farm is over!
We are currently recruiting an exceptional ROGUE, a ranged OS HEALER, and skilled RANGED DPS of any class and spec to move forward with us into Legion. As a trial, you’ll be starting with us in heroic progression, where you’ll be on even footing with everyone else when it comes to gear and experience. It’s a great chance both to show us what you can do and to see us in action as a guild. We will take past logs into consideration, preferably for the class on which you are applying (but that is not strictly necessary), when deciding who to accept as a trial.
Our raiding times are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 6:30pm to 10:30pm PST (US-Deathwing server time, which is Pacific time). In addition to our raiding schedule we also do optional Sunday content varying week to week including in the past challenge mode groups, achievement runs, alt raids and more. Although we do not plan to split raid, early in Legion that will likely mean normal runs to help fill out tier sets and trinkets for people who can make the extra day.
(See pixelated.enjin.com for links to logs and wowprogress, explanations of our policies, and to apply.)
We describe ourselves as "semi-hardcore." We take raiding seriously and expect people to put in effort outside of raid to learn the fights and do any necessary pre-raid gearing, especially at the beginning of an expansion when there are so many things to do to be prepared before the raid goes live. Our primary goal as a raid group is to complete all content before the next tier comes out and acquire the associated cutting edge achievements—hopefully this tier we can make it to top 100 US, as we’ve been close in the past—and to the best of our ability we like to maintain a cooperative and welcoming environment for raiders. The guild is full of helpful people possessing a variety of professions to help people get things started, and we will be running guild groups for mythic and mythic+ dungeons. In the past, we’ve had very active, competitive challenge mode teams; maintained a successful alt raid; sold dozens of mythic carries to amass gold for the guild and its members; and scheduled achievement runs and even transmog farm. These are all optional activities, but they showcase how active many of our members are, creating a good community of players both on WoW and in other games like Diablo, HotS, and Overwatch. Some members pvp regularly, although that has never been our focus as a guild. Our raiders come from a variety of backgrounds and age groups, but we expect everyone to be generally respectful and friendly. We have a reputation for professionalism on our server and intend to keep it.
Loot is distributed via a loot council and the RC Loot Council addon. Raiders are expected to have RC Loot Council in order to quickly and easily inform the council of their interest in an item.
We use Mumble for our communication purposes and we expect all guild members to be able to connect, listen, and speak when vital for raid utility.
Raiders are expected to have the following addons and keep them up-to-date to facilitate raiding:
DBM or Bigwigs
RC Loot Council
Exorsus Raid Tools
<PIXELATED> RAIDING HISTORY
The guild formed in late Cataclysm but really found its feet at the end of MoP. Prior to WoD we were a 10-man guild, and despite some growing pains we made the jump to mythic raiding and currently prefer to maintain a roster of around 24 people. We do not consider anyone to be a “bench” player; rather, we rotate people in and out for fights based on gearing needs and the mechanical requirements of each boss.
