Scientific Method is a "semi" hardcore guild that has been actively raiding on US-Stormreaver since early 2010. We have recently decided to make the transition from 25man raiding to 10man raiding in order to become a more focused and determined team. We love to have fun while wiping to, and occasionally killing a raid boss or two (including hardmodes), but we all pretend to have lives outside of video games.
We are looking for players who enjoy the community of being in a guild. Our roster has many casual and retired raiders who still hang out in the guild and do things such as PvP, PuGs, dungeons, or even other games like LoL, Startcraft 2, and Diablo III. We want players who are serious about finding a guild they can stay in for several raid tiers and expansions, and can help us further our development into a top 10man guild on our server while still maintaining our casual atmosphere and 3 day raiding schedule.
Our atmosphere is fairly relaxed, however we do require basic raiding essentials such as showing up on time for every raid, being fully gemmed, fully enchanted, properly reforged, and having your own flasks and food ready before the raid starts. The gbank provides these things at a reduced price for our raiders.
You should have a very in-depth knowledge of your class, not just the tunnel vision DPS/HPS/TPS rotation, but an understanding of your defensive CDs, your CC, and any other utility that your class can bring to benefit yourself and/or the raid. This includes knowing all of your talents and glyphs, and when and how they can be useful.
Progression-wise, we are currently 4/12 in Normal Mode tier 15, 4/16 in Heroic Mode Tier 14. We were 6/8 in 10/25man Heroic Dragon Soul, and 7/7 in 10/25man Heroic Firelands. We would like for your experience to be on par or better than our current progression.
Our raiding schedule is Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday 8-11 CST (server), with raid invites starting 15 minutes before raid start. We require a 95% attendance rate, barring extenuating circumstances, or unless specifically discussed prior to joining the guild. We also do weekend raids occasionally, but they are not required.
When we are finished with progression and people start getting bored, we hope to put together a raid for our alts on Thursdays. This would be part of our scheduled raids, and would therefor be a required raid day. We feel this will help keep people interested in playing even after all we have is farm content, and will help us in later tiers by having geared alts to help with raid composition.
We are always looking for any exceptional players. If you think you are good and can impress us on your application, you will be considered regardless of our current class needs, however we are especially on the lookout for:
0: Tank -
1: Melee DPS (Preferably with tank OS) - DK, Feral Druid
1: Ranged DPS - Mage, Boomkin, Shadow Priest
0: Healer -
