The story of <Endless> started off on another realm, the heavily horde populated EU-Balnazzar, as an alliance guild called <Thunder>. As the core of <Thunder> gradually became annoyed by the decline of the number of players and resulting impossiblity to recruit anyone on the Alliance side of Balnazzar, we decided to transfer to another server and start anew. After some research and observing the community from a plethora of level 1 gnome mage alts, EU-Auchindoun was to become our new home.
Going through numerous discussions on when, where and how to start the guild at some point we have transfered our mains (and main alts) and settled on a guildname. Out of the 20 names nominated, the guildname <Endless> was decided upon.
We decided to carry the "hardcore" tag, as this indicates our fervor towards repeatedly bashing our heads against more difficult encounters and expecting our raiders to set up their weekly schedules around WoW, rather than planning WoW around their weekly schedules. We do wish to focus heavily on progression, we will do so through raiding 4 times a week (WED, THU, SUN and MON) from 19:30 to 00:00 gametime (which could be extended to later depending on day's progress).
<Endless> philosophy is one of active communication. We will strive to not leave people in the dark and be clear of what we plan and what we want. This does not limit itself to raid start times and criticism, but will also be reflected into our decisions of loot. This active communication works both ways. As a 10 man guild, we value everyone's opinion and regularly discuss tackling certain raid mechanics with players to whom it concerns. We use a loot council, where we require our raiders to convince the council why said items would suit you best. This means we do encourage the creation of so-called "BiS-lists" which we require to be updated regularly in line with upcoming class and raidmechanic changes.
Henceforth it is also expected that our raiders actively read up on their class, mechanic changes and raid encounters to best inform and prepare themselves for progress on difficult raidbosses. On top of this, we especially value players who have several alts and know very well how to play these characters. It is not unlikely that a character switch will be suggested for 10 man encounters. "Bring the player, not the class" is an absolute bollocks ideology brought forth by Blizzard and we will regularly switch out mains for alts in order to tackle certain encounters.
In order to be able to actively participate in <Endless>, we expect our members to be able to speak and understand English fluently and have access to headphones and a microphone (We use TeamSpeak 3). We actively use our forum to discuss tactics, spam random stuff and convey absences (we do NOT use calendar invites, as the expected attendance is no less than 100%). In all other regards, <Endless> is an international 10 man guild, laid back and always open to socials. "Fun" is a keyword in <Endless> to the extent that we try to turn even progress raids (no matter the difficulty) into fun raids.
Notable achievements in terms of pure 10 man guild / alliance guild progress on this server (during Cata and aiming to do the same in MoP) are the following: Server 1st Nefarian heroic - May 12th, 2011
