<Adapt> is an Alliance raiding guild on US-Spirestone with the goal of competitive PvE progression on a 3 nights/week schedule. Formed during Wrath from a set of folk who had been playing together casually since BC, we had solid 25-man progression during Cataclysm, capturing almost all server 1st 25-man kills and ending the expansion at US 128. During Mists we have continued this trend, clearing normal mode content the week of release, ranking in the top 100 for US 25-mans, and improving with each new kill.
Our recruiting philosophy can be summed up as "recruit the player, not the character". Yes, you need a toon that is geared to the level of the content (485+) so you can immediately contribute, but overall we are fans of people that can play multiple specs, or have experience on multiple classes/multiple roles - diversity of experience yields better players. PvP heroes are welcome for the situational awareness & class knowledge that comes with success in arena, but PvE progress better be at the top of your agenda.
The ideal applicants understand & play their class to the fullest of its ability, and in the case of hybrids, for multiple talent trees; have maxed raiding professions & exalted reputations where it matters; are able to take constructive criticism well; maintain a near 100% attendance rate through the trial and beyond; and have a burning desire to complete raid-centric achievements and hard modes.
In return we offer decent progression with a good mix of casual & serious - raids are serious on progression bosses, but strive to be a bit more relaxed when possible. The guild has an active social member base, and our raiding core are not raid-loggers so if you like to play a lot you'll generally find people online to do stuff with. Also, a lot of our players have well-geared alts; If this is not you, that is fine - just be awesome at your main. If this is you, great - we understand your needs & make an effort to meet them.
