Vanguard (25man 16/16N 3/6 hc-MSV), is a raiding guild that has always been around in some form on Kazzak. We raided 40man in good old Vanilla wow, 25man in TBC and WotLK, went down to 10man in Cataclysm. When the latest expansion launched we saw a lot of interest in 25mans and switched back to that. We are now recruiting EXCEPTIONAL players to bolster the roster. We are also open to old friends and aquintainces for social spots.
To give you more information on our guild, our core players have experienced the top flight of raiding within top 100 guilds (such as Slashcry, Showdown and Last Resort to name only a few) in previous expansions, including the guild master who is renowned for great leadership skills during raids and will expect the very best from each raider no matter what rank or class they are.
Pandaria meant Vanguard could re-establish itself with the potential to become a dominant raiding team again. Within such a short time core raiders rejoined and Vanguard has recruited a near full team of gifted, talented and brained raiders. Furthermore due to previous success and a good community, the old core and old school players have rejoined to form Vanguard into a competitive and focused raiding environment.
Vanguard are searching for high calibre players - the most recent recruitment needs are listed below. We want exceptional talent of any class to compete with our raiders. This allows us to remain fresh and continue progressing quickly throughout this expansion in 25 mans and be competitive in heroic kills, whilst maintaining a social/working life.
You require extensive raiding experience with competitive top logs for your respective class and spec. Achivements with relevant dates are also a big plus, such as early progress in Ulduar or ICC or any of the Cataclysm raids.
Raiding spots are performance based, our trial system can be as low as 1 week as long as you're the correct person for the spot. Attitude, performance and delivering results are very important. You need to understand not just the game in the sense of pure digits and mechanics, but also understand the game that is raiding and the enviroment around it. What we truly are looking for in the long run are people who contribute and feels good to work with. You need to see the value in a long term perspective and playing with likeminded people.
Do you find that you look at a fight and quickly understand or with little practice get everything correct? We are the guild for you.
Do you think that when new content on Normal comes out, it should be cleared on 1st week and that everyone should be fully prepared and aware of everything on the fight? We are the guild for you.
