Attitude & Expectations:
Play to win. Trial and Error is looking for players with a pro-level, humble “can do” attitude. This means putting forth your very best effort, following instruction carefully and always improving on your recent best. This also means having the tenacity and determination to be better than the rest and learning from mistakes. We wipe. That is part of new progression and we embrace it. This allows us to learn the pieces of the puzzle and put them together as a whole. If difficult game content frustrates you easily this is not the guild for you. Likewise, players who are incapable of treating others with dignity and respect, players who enjoy grandstanding, trolling, chatting excessively in Vent and raid chat are not welcome.

The bottom line is, to be a successful candidate in Trial and Error you are truly an exceptional player with a proven track record.

Performance:
Above all else, your player skill is the most important. While exceptional character output is fundamental, knowing when to go full on and when to hold back, knowing the right tactics and how to best utilize your character for a given combat situation is key. In essence, as a raider in Trial and Error, players are expected to perform competitively, while being able to survive and overcome the mechanics of a given encounter.

Attendance:
This is not a social guild. This is a raid guild. Players are expected to participate in at least 75% of all raids. This means you can only miss one to three raids per month. If you cannot make a raid you are expected to post in the guild forum to let the team know you can’t make it. Those who cannot keep up with the pack are routinely removed from the guild.

Preparation:
Be autonomous. You are expected to know your class mechanics, tune your character to its optimum level, have food, flask, potions, first aid, etc ready at all times. You are expected to know your part in the given game encounter. While the guild will normally provide feasts and cauldrons, prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Personality:
Actions speak volumes; Typically successful recruits are those who take the time to build positive relationships with others in the guild through doing, not boasting. This takes time. This means striving to play with excellence, blending in with fellow guild members and focus on personal performance. This also means knowing your place in the guild, not using Vent or raid/guild/trade chat as an opportunity to be cocky or treat others poorly. Do not test this.

Loot:
Loot is distributed via a fair and logical, leadership-led loot council. While seniority is observed and rewarded, Trial and Error gears up the raid team, not the individual nor the officer, as a means of progressing as fast as possible. Raiding is a team effort and we reward the team by empowering.

Application Process:

Interested candidates should submit an application to our website at trialanderror.guildlaunch.com or you can contact Prist, Asra, Rtaath or Sargo in game if you prefer in game chat or vent
