<Storm> raids with a larger flexible roster designed to cater to min/maxxing and class stacking in the cases where it is ideal to the encounter. All raiding members of the guild are swapped in and out for achivements and gear they need once bosses are on farm. Every player in the guild sees progression content at one time or another. Spots in Raids are given based on class, spec, gear, skill, dedication, merit and drive.
Who Storm is looking for :
Storm is looking for people who want to raid and play WoW as much as they can, people who control their own play time and who own computers that can handle a raiding environment with a stable internet connection. Storm wants people who can sit at the computer the entire raid and not go AFK for various distractions around the home. If you are going to prioritize other things before raids, do not apply. You must be driven to raid until the last boss is dead to hold a spot in this guild. Applicants should be fluent in English, have a microphone/VoIP client and be willing to communicate through it.
As a guild, Storm is constantly looking to improve itself, through the use of World of Logs, SimulationCraft, AskMrRobot, and other such resources, the same would be expected of our potential members.
As a DPS class in Storm, you should be constantly looking for ways to increase your DPS even by the smallest margins. You should be comparing your DPS output to ALL players not just the ones in your own guild. If you cannot bring TOP DPS to the raid, don't bother applying.
As a Healing class in Storm, you should be driven to increase your healing output using the most efficient spells, abilities and Talent Specs. You should be able to use all the healing tools available to your class and spec. In short, you should not be a one button spammer.
As a Tanking class in Storm, you should have extensive experience raid tanking and the confidence to co-lead raids and call out pertinent information on vent. Storm's tanks should have the ability to maximize threat output and the knowledge to gear for each encounter individually if the content requires it.
As a raider in this guild you should prioritize raiding as much as anyone else in the guild does. You should not take missing raids lightly. We expect High Attendance and enthusiasm to raid regardless of the content.
Raid Environment :
This is a serious raid guild populated by adults that communicate on Ventrilo. Trash is cleared lightheartedly and efficiently, but boss fights are tightly executed with only the necessary info communicated through Ventrilo. Storm uses a loot council that awards gear based on merit, playskill, attendance and/or overall guild needs should such circumstances arise. Repair costs while raiding progression content are funded by the Guild Bank.
