HOWEVER: We are always looking for exceptional players regardless of current needs as they can vary over time. Extra consideration given to those with strong offspecs, especially healers. Anyone interested in tanking must prove themselves competitive in a DPS or healing role first, and be willing to maintain and use that spec as content dictates. Exceptional applicants of any class will always be considered.

<Electric Sheep> is an established 25 man raiding guild on Kargath-US a PvE EST Chicago datacenter server that has been raiding since Vanilla.
We have a unique mix of a casual approach to the game combined with a serious approach to raiding. We understand that real life is always a priority, but during raids we expect players to be capable, prepared, and communicative. It is this attitude that allows us to make such significant progress in the game while only raiding about 10 hours a week.
Raid spots are given out on a raid-by-raid basis based on whoever signs up for a particular night. There is no set raid team. Progression raid spots are given out based very heavily on merit, farm raid spots are more dispersed to give new members an opportunity to show their ability.
On a personal note the guild is full of great people and amazing officers. The guild is and has been drama free. Everyone is treated with respect by all members of the guild. It can be a great home if you're looking for one
Loot is distributed based on our own version of a zero-sum DKP system that we call Electric Sheep Points, or ESP, that is updated for each player week by week. Items are assigned a cost based on their ilvl, what slot they go in (armor, jewelery, weapon, etc...), and our progress through the tier. As time goes on, the price of items declines, which puts a premium on getting something first, and allows newer players and alts to get items from older content at a discount.
When an item drops, anyone who wants it /rolls and posts their ESP in raid chat. The person with the highest roll who has sufficient ESP to cover the cost is awarded the item. There is no discussion necessary, and no bidding.
You gain ESP by showing up to raids on time, staying the whole time, and for attempts on bosses (so if we don't get any drops you still earn points), based on the amount of points people spend for items that week.
Recruits undergo a roughly 1 month "trial period" after joining the guild, after which a decision to accept or decline the recruit is made. Recruits have normal loot privileges during their trial period, and begin with 5 ESP (which is sufficient to roll for most types of items, depending on progression).
If you want to learn more about the guild or have any questions regarding recruitment, please visit our forum at http://www.acdsheep.com or contact an officer in-game. Good people to try are Dibbler, Lauriel, Akorah, or ask a member if there are currently any officers online or on alts.
