**Recruitment is OPEN for 25man**
(We accept ONLY EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS of all classes through applications)
XMAS period Ending- Resuming 25 man as of 3rd Jan.
For a TRIAL SPOT appropriate candidates should be at a level to COMPETE in HEROIC T14. ALL Candidates should have TOP knowledge in their class, current raids and a great attitude towards progression. Near 100% attendance is expected.
YOU REQUIRE a stable internet connection, a PC fully capable of running 25man raids WITHOUT problems, to have setup ALL NECESSARY ADD-ONS and make ALL TRACKERS clear - so you have NO EXCUSES if you fail. ALSO you require Ventrilo and a working microphone, with the ability to communicate in ENGLISH and fully understand instructions.
Vanguard setup in Vanilla Wow, has raided competitively throughout the history of wow, HIGHEST RANKING ~100 in World 25 man (3days a week). WE are recruiting exceptional players to KILL HEROIC MODES- go HARD on PROGRESSION and IMPROVE our WORLD RANK. We have raided to a high level on ALL content and EXPECT the BEST from our RAIDERS. We are also open to old friends and acquaintances for social spots.
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.
Vanguard are searching for high calibre players. We want exceptional talent of any class to compete and BEAT our current raiders. (WE LOVE A CHALLENGE) 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.
Raiding spots are performance based, our trial system can be as low as 1 or 2 weeks 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 environment 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 like-minded 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.
