Forum Guidelines - Please Read
Welcome to the World of Warcraft discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/blog/930468) can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.2

My name is Skarain, active Roleplayer on the server's since 7/2011, and I shall try to sheen some insight to the inner workings of the roleplaying community present on the server. What is Roleplaying? Roleplaying, as a starter, means immersing to your character and living their life as they were a person who belong to the universe. Being born in it, experiencing the events present in this world and shapen by those events into the person that they are today. Who they are, where they are from and what they are like as a person. While this can be done by your own, in your mind alone or by writing stories of your character, most players engage in roleplaying with other roleplayers. Usually, this makes for a better story as each character is able to get echo to their words and actions from other players. Together, they may go out on an adventure, exchange different views on matters or simply get drunk in a nearby tavern. Now then. Roleplayers are a minority among the playerbase of World of Warcraft, even on the Roleplaying servers. This means that not everyone you meet will be a roleplayer. Some may respond to you if you /say something to them, but in general most players simply go about their business like any average player. Likewise, to be a roleplayer does not mean that you engage in roleplaying "all the time". We engage in ingame activities, do raiding, pvp, leveling, pet-battles, end-game stuff just like any other. The difference is that we do take some time aside, like someone would for a raid or RBG, to engage in roleplaying with other people. Usually, this happens on the evening, between 19.00-23.00, depending on the guild and group of friends preferences. Where can Roleplaying be found? On these RP-PvP servers, Roleplayers are primarily found under Roleplaying Guilds. These guilds commonly follow a specific "theme", such as being a band of brigands, merciless marauders, devout Light-worshippers, protectors of the innocent, a noble house, an evil cult, race-specific groups, different organisations and the list goes on. These guilds then create events for their members, provide structure (around the concept) and encourage their members to progress their character stories. While Roleplaying can be found out without belonging to a guild, a general recommendation for a person new to roleplaying would be to join a guild. A guild lowers the entry level, immediately includes new recruits to their events and are able to provide help and advice where needed. To find roleplaying unguilded First: learn to make use of the "public roleplaying channels". These can be found at the beginning of this thread. In the channels, ask where roleplaying would be found. On the forums, read about the Events, In Character and Looking for Roleplaying entries for plots, campaigns and events that are open to be participated. Second: Engage in roleplaying offered. Learn about the different guilds, RP hubs and where people gather to roleplay. Third: Form contact with the roleplayers you meet, especially those who you end up roleplaying regularly with. This will get you invited into even more roleplaying, including plots and events that are not open to the public. Don't be shy! Lastly but most importantly, don't be afraid to talk to people. Nobody is going to judge you if your english isn't perfect, or if you take ages to respond. We all have been there. We know how it is. I personally are from Finland and I have learned most of my english by roleplaying (and using google translator/online dictionaries for support). Let others know if you are new, and they will show patience and if need be help you forward. We learn by doing. Roleplaying is no different from that. — Skarain, 13th of October, 2016 -------------- How to list your guild: ...152

[H] Mak Gora - PvP Guild
Mak Gora once one of the largest and most active Horde World PvP guilds of late Mists of Pandaria and throughout the entirety of Warlords of Draenor are “reviving” for 7.2 and onward. Whether it was under the name Mak Gora or Distortion we were one of the strongest guilds to play in that time span. We’re intending on maintaining a solid core of around 15-20 people within the guild who have similar interests to ourselves. We’ll be competing in all aspects of the game, as primarily a PvP’r I will be organizing and coordinating events for the guild around that side of the game, whether we’ll do Rated/Random Battlegrounds or World PvP as examples. We’ll also do PvE as it’s one of the best/easiest ways to obtain gear in this expansion. This will consist of daily dungeons, pugging Normal/Heroic raids, Mythic+ dungeons, World Quests to list a few. However, we’ve all got our own lives outside of the game so you have to be aware that we mightn’t be able to entertain with activity’s every day. So the responsibility you have as a member is to create your own fun from time to time. More than likely we’ll be logged in daily but we do a bit of everything and don’t just play WoW as we like to jump into other games like League of Legends or Rust, you could consider us a community aswell as a guild. World PvP: We steadily proved ourselves as a force to be reckoned with among the community. Thanks to the perseverance and hard work of our core members, we were able to provide an exciting and challenging experience to all our members. Joining the guild you must be able to follow the strategies and directives during the fights. We aim to be mostly small scale World PvP, don’t quote me on that however as there may come a time we might “counter-zerg” a group but we’d prefer to refrain from large scale. What we expect of you: Max Level and decently geared 845+ilvl however we may make exceptions on the ilvl. Discord + working microphone. Understand & speak English. Knowledge of the class you play. Reliability. Don’t be sensitive as we’ve a lot of banter which some may deem offensive but it’s all in good fun. What we can offer you: Opportunity for you to gain experience from many dedicated and experienced wow players. A chance to try everything in the expansion with a group of like-minded players. We have a great atmosphere and try to make everyone feel as if they're part of the core. We've a wide arrangement of people coming from Ireland/UK, Sweden, Germany, Serbia and Denmark to name a few. If you've any other questions you can contact any of the below: Drach Rufuki/Rumil Jinzoth/Jinzu/Jinzuku Krilgor Riaqu Skittil Wolfsong/Necros/Saurfang 2017 Recruitment video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9AbjJFhQRg&t=3s Mak Gora's YouTube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9AbjJFhQRg&list=PLF5lYPXn309kIep2UvsuW0-G4J6vGLyEl&index=1 If interested, we’ll be recruiting via website until 7.2 launch: http://makgora.shivtr.com/18
Looking for friends? Look no further!
I've recently returned to the game after over a year off to find my guild quiet, my friends gone and the world a lonely, lonely place. Unfortunately, reading posts on the forums, it seems I'm not the only one in this predicament and this makes me a sad Troll. Servers used to have great communities, friends lists used to light up like Christmas trees and people used to speak to each other so much, replying with the wrong thing to the wrong person was inevitable...aah, those were the days! I met so many great people and made so many new friends. These days it's much more difficult. I'm tired of joining groups and having no one speak. Tired of joining battlegrounds and seeing nothing but people abusing each other and name calling. Tired of the 'multiplayer' part of the game being limited to "well, there are other people around, I guess". So, here is what I am proposing: let's be friends! The idea is you add either your Battletag or character names, Alliance or Horde, and a brief description of what you'd like to achieve from this. About me I'll go first: Kelsten#2649. I play mostly Horde, although I'm leveling a Human Paladin and Dwarf Shaman on the side for 'something to do'. They're currently in their 40's. Horde side I have 7 level 100s that I flick between regularly, mostly just doing Ashran these days to collect PVP gear to try and catch back up to the gear grind. I haven't raided this expansion beyond the first few weeks in Highmaul. What I want from this I would like to make new friends! I would like to have fun people to chat with via whisper or groups, do dungeons/heroics/mythics with and maybe even the occasional impromptu raid. I often run old raids for transmog, and company is always nice. I like helping others, too. The rules The internet can be a strange, scary place filled with odd folk who like nothing better than to upset each other. Sometimes people think that adding you as a friend automatically means you owe them something, or that you can demand things of them. We're having none of that, so here are some ground rules for partaking in this little experiment: - If you add someone from the list and they don't add you back straight away, don't spam them with whispers asking why - Be polite, be friendly - If someone says they are too busy, can't speak right now or otherwise don't want to chat, please respect that - If someone can't group with you, can't help you out with anything or is otherwise unwilling etc, please respect that - No begging. Do not beg people for gold, gear, boosts, help, free stuff or anything else. Have some self-respect! - No weirdness. If you discover you're talking to a real, actual woman, don't go all creepy on her - I can pretty much guarantee the only thing you'll be 'getting' is put on ignore - Don't be an !@#$. Don't whisper people spoilers for TV shows or movies, don't harass and don't start arguments - Keep it clean! No whispering vulgarities, nothing kinky or sexually explicit If you break these rules, you might be blacklisted from the list and that means no more friends for you! To sum up: be polite, be respectful, be friendly and play nice. I'll update the list if I can once people start adding their tags. Alliance Battletags Horde Battletags Thanks for reading and I look forward to speaking with you in the game!33
[H-PvE] <Momentum> 4/7M 3/3HC 8/10HC are recruiting!
Hey there Defias et all, <Momentum> are a casual raiding guild, with a laid back bunch of players who've been playing for a number of years. Whilst we aim to raid to the best of our ability, we're all plenty older than we were back in BC, and keep a flexible environment to fit in with our lives outside of the game. We like to have fun and progress at our own pace, so we don't set requirements on things like artifact level, and aim to get as many people raiding with us as we can. Schedule We raid two nights a week, on Wednesday and Sunday, from 20:15 CET (19:15 GMT) to 23:30 CET (22:30 GMT). We also aim to run alt runs on Tuesday nights, but these aren't mandatory. Progress We currently have NH N on farm, and we're successfully making progress through NH H, with us now being at 8/10H. You can see our up to date progress here: http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/eu/defias-brotherhood/Momentum The Nighthold In Nighthold, we'll be looking to clear through to Mythic before the launch of Tomb of Sargeras. We've lacked a full 20 man roster for EN and ToV, but we intend to go into Mythic Nighthold after getting geared in HC. We aren't pushing for realm firsts or anything though, as we like keeping our raiding atmosphere relatively chilled out and friendly. Recruitment Tanks Currently we're full on tanks Healers Resto Shaman DPS We're currently very interested in the following: Hunter Shaman Shadow Priest We're currently full on: Druid Monk Demon Hunter We currently have a lot of trials with us, who may come or go depending on if they're a right fit for the guild, so we're always interested from hearing from exceptional applicants, irrespective of class. Please check back here regularly, as we're updating this pretty much every other day. Want to apply? Whilst we like to keep things flexible and light, we also take our raiding seriously! For that reason, we have an application form on the guild's Facebook page, and we encourage everyone in the guild to join us on there. We're a social bunch of people, and tend to keep chatting even off game. It also serves as a core part of guild information, with the officers posting up raid progress, tips and information like how to sim your own stat weights, as well as being a way to round people up for Mythic+ dungeons or other in game stuff! You can find us at www.facebook.com/groups/MomentumGuild We understand that not everyone uses Facebook, and whilst we encourage everyone to apply through there, we occasionally do applications in game and via Teamspeak. If you'd prefer to apply this way, please contact one of the guild contacts below.

[A-RP] The Senate of Ironforge
tl;dr Weekly political RP event on Thursdays at 20:00 realm time. Location: Hall of Explorers, Ironforge. Intro The Ironforge Senate is a community organization on DB et al. It serves as an IC political arena for the Ironforge and Khaz Modan community. While all races are accepted in the senate, it primarily serves dwarven interests IC, whilst OOC the Senate exists to improve and bring added dynamics to the roleplaying community. The Council of the Three Hammers has a right to veto any decision made by the senate. The Council's veto operates as an IC and OOC mechanic to nullify decisions that were accepted by the senate IC, and decided OOC to be unsuitable. If you're interested in becoming a senator, could you please send an in-character in-game mail to Cyrík-DefiasBrotherhood (note the acute accent above the i) or Webbles-TheVentureCo detailing which position is being applied to and why you'd be suitable as a senator. Information Ruling a nation as vast as the Kingdom of Khaz Modan is no easy task and it is far too mighty for any one man, or even The Council of Three Hammers itself. This is the reason the senate exists — to serve the Council and aid them in governing the great mountain kingdom and the clans sworn to it. A gathering of people that handles the administration, organization and structure of the kingdom and then present their suggestions to the Council for them to consider. The senators themselves are chosen by the senate itself, based on merits and overall impression. An applicant is to present themselves before the senate with the credentials. Should the senate find the individual suited for the job, they will take a vote, and with a majority vote the applicant will be accepted as a senator. Organisation The Ironforge senate consists of five seats. The seats are all related to a specific duty which the senator in question is tasked with handling. Should a senator be unavailable or a seat vacant, then the task may be taken up by another senator. The senate holds regular weekly meetings in which matters of state are resolved and the senators report to each other — and the citizens — what they have accomplished during the past week or what they seek to accomplish in the coming weeks. In addition, this meeting also serves as a means for the people and foreign states to get a hold of the gathered senate. Furthermore, there are several issues that can only be resolved by the full senate. These matters include, but are not limited to: ♦ Declaration of war ♦ The forming or breaking of alliances ♦ The enactment of new laws ♦ Major reorganization of any part of dwarven society ♦ Election of new senators However, should a pressing issue demand immediate action, the action may be taken — but it must be brought up for a vote at the next available meeting. All decisions made by the senate are, at the end of the meeting, to be presented before the council for their consideration. Ultimately all power lies with them, and should they disagree with any decision, they may use their veto to nullify the decision. The senate cannot and may not protest against any decision of the council and must abide by these wishes. Failure to do so is considered to be treason. The Seats ... The Seat of Artifacts: Gimli IV Stormpike (Gimlivier-DefiasBrotherhood) The Seat of Artifacts handles the archaeological and demographic knowledge about Azeroth, and serves as a liaison between the Senate and the Explorer's League. The senator plans and executes expeditions to search for new artifacts as well as treasure hunts. They are also in charge of monitoring the kingdom's vaults and ensuring the local Thanes, who collect the taxes (set by the Senator of Transactions) from their Clans, send the appropriate sum in time. The Seat of Magical Affairs: Azapha Hutchins (Azapha-DefiasBrotherhood) The Seat of the Occult handles everything beyond the physical realm — affairs of spiritual nature, religion and all sorts of magic. The senator also serves as a liaison between the Senate and the Temple of Ironforge, the Arcane Library of Ironforge — as well as all the practitioners of arcane, divine or other. The Seat of Order: Sebastian Hutchins (Hutchins-DefiasBrotherhood) The Seat of Order is responsible for the senatorial branch of the Khaz Modan armed forces, including the guards. They are responsible for monitoring the movement of the armies and planning tactics they use in the field, as well as ensuring the quality of the guards' work. The Seat of Order also handles the legislature of Ironforge. It is their job to organize and maintain the law and justice system in Khaz Modan. The senator is also the High Judge of Ironforge, and it is their job to make sure that criminals are prosecuted and punished — as well as organizing and appointing the judges of Khaz Modan. The Seat of Relations: - Vacant The Senator of Relations handles all foreign relations and organizes the Khaz Modan diplomatic corps. While most major decisions lie with the full senate, the Senator of Relations is at liberty to conclude most non-vital affairs on their own. The senator also handles the relations between the senate and the citizens, as well as coordinating affairs regarding dwarven traditions that are not of spiritual nature, such as the brewfest, parades and other mundane celebrations. The Seat of Transactions: - Vacant The Seat of Transactions handles the equipment, trade routes, supply lines and logistics of Khaz Modan. It is their duty to ensure that both the military forces and the citizens of Ironforge are always kept supplied. The senator also handles all the industrial and technological advances on the Kingdom, and is responsible for the overview of the research of new instruments and weapons to help on the development of the Dwarven society. In addition the senator handles all trading with our revered allies, and finances of the Kingdom as well as deciding the taxes throughout all Dwarven territories. Additional Members Royal Liaison: Senator Barin Redstone (NPC) The royal liaison serves as the link between the senate and the king. It is he who presents and discusses the senate's suggestions with the king for consideration. Grand Chancellor: Cyrik Blackforge (Cyrík-DefiasBrotherhood) The Grand Chancellor is the chairman of the senate; declaring when senate will begin and end, decides the program of the day and decides who may and may not speak providing order and making sure certain protocols are kept to.30
[A]VC-7/7M, 3/10M Violent Circus
Who are we? <Violent Circus> is an older, established guild on Defias Brotherhood. Historically, we have been a PvP guild that attracts skilled, competitive players. We have a ridiculous amount of gladiator mounts, the number of which is often used to settle disputes in the guild. But just because we have a PvP past, we are by no means less capable to do quality PvE, many of us have raided since the early days of Vanilla, back when killing a new boss took months and we are armed with the patience and knowledge to face new PvE challenges. Our officers have years of experience when it comes to running guilds, we have lead and managed successful guilds in the past, we have seen it all, and have been in most situations that could be considered difficult for a guild. With the arrival of Legion, we have focused mostly on PvE, as most of us were surprised by how much we enjoy the challenges of raid mechanics, optimal play and fat loot.We cleared Emerald Nightmare on mythic without much hassle and have since moved on to NH progression. We currently stand at 7/7 bosses in mythic EN and 3/10 mythic NH and before our slight setback due to some of our main healers quitting the game, we were easily keeping up progresswise with guilds raiding 3 days a week or more. We aim to continue this focus throughout the expansion, until we overcome the mythic Sargeras/Jaina the Dreadlord/Murky/randomfinalboss. Naturally, we also enjoy doing mythic dungeons, battlegrounds and rated arenas, aiming to master our classes at whatever we pursue. Our progression raids are on Mondays and Thursdays (8-11 PM, CET). For extra gearing and non-raiding members, our farming raids take place on Sundays. We chat regularly on discord and we have a variety of beautiful accents on offer. We are rather international, having many players from Finland, UK, Norway, Netherlands and other countries, so we always communicate in English. By now, most of us are in our mid to late twenties. Some of us have replaced gladiator titles with marriage and children. We respect each other’s time and understand its value. This is why, when we do play, we try to be at our best. Who do we want? Due to our current focus on mythic progression, we want to recruit some new members to have a steady amount of raiders. We will currently consider ranged dps and healers only, our raiding team is quite full otherwise and with the risk of using a cliche here, exceptional players will always be considered. We do not accept social ranks usually but if you are interested in joining our amazing community, a well done application, in which the applicant shows he/she has the same values as us ingame, might get you a social rank in our guild. Here are some other requirements: · You are at least 20 years old, with a decent skill in English · You are able to raid, most of the time, on Mondays and Thursdays · On the raid times, you can join our discord channel and listen · You try to excel at your chosen class and are able to take criticism · You respect other players and put progression before drama or loot As you can see, it is good if you have serious raiding and pvp experience, yet potential and good attitude is a big plus . As we are competitive, we want people that try their best yet, at the end of the day, we understand that everyone makes mistakes. Typically, we do not encourage that and we try to resolve it as quickly as possible, on discord, should that happen. We have a channel for after-raid discussion. Just like your marriage counselor. For farm raids, we use personal loot. In progression raids, we use a master loot system, with the highest appropriate roll getting the loot. In case of disputes, our comrade officers distribute the loot so that the gearing is fair and quick. We do not care for DKP systems, as we are too free and spirited for such a system, man. As a final thought, this guild is both old and new, relaxed (with only 2 raids a week) yet focused and competitive, but above all we are a good community - even though, as harsh as this may sound, we have low tolerance for drama and attention seeking, therefore we do not encourage players with a past like that to attempt to join us. Our core of people stuck together through thick and thin ( for more than 10 years), a few met through this game and took the relationship further in the real world. We keep in contact all the time and there are plans for more of us to meet outside Azeroth. We do realize tight communites like these might seem scary for new people, but we always manage to succesfully integrate our newest recruits (if the will is there from their side too). Bottomline, if you want a place to call home again, after years of wandering around the world (of Warcraft) never quite fitting in anywhere and sometimes doubting good guilds like there used to be in the old days still exist, look no more . We can be all that and more for you. Players who wish to join us need to make an application at our wonderful website http://violentcircus.eu/ but if you need more information or are unsure about applying , you can always whisper me or our other officers (Waters-Defias Brotherhood, Excali-Defias Brotherhood, Ernski-Defias Brotherhood, Sayolein-Defias Brotherhood). Thank you for taking the time to read this and good luck in your future endeavours in game or outside of it.23
[A/H/N] (Rp) The Grand Campaign Map (15.3.2017)
Hello, all roleplayers and those interested in roleplaying. I have now thought to add all roleplaying orders into a "grand campaign" map. I did put earlier only rp-pvp orders, but thought to expand and put there what there is in ic on the server. The map so far (work in progress clearly, updated on 15.3.2017): (prefer downloading the original, since the map is very high resolution) https://ibb.co/d30KbF So in short I'd like to add every roleplaying guild info into the map with their description. Either I'll ask the answers for some info, wait for a reply to this thread, or pick those up from rp guild list/recruitment threads. However I prefer that guilds provide their info on this, but will see how many will. So for rp guilds I'd ask these in particular: Order name - This means the guild name in game, so people can ask from the right direction. Rp or Rp-PvP? Either rp or rp-pvp. Faction - Alliance/Horde/Neutral (Name of the specific affiliation of the neutral order) Race - The race(s) which the characters of the order consist of or accepts, when there are members accepted from specific race(s), in other case "all Alliance/all Horde" is enough. Primary location - The main base/settlement the order uses, if it's within a capital city the name of the capital city is fine. Secondary location - The secondary base/settlement the order uses, if it's within a capital city the name of the capital city is fine. Any other settlement/location the order uses in a continual manner - If there is regular use of a settlement/location, put those here, if numerous separate simply with comma. In character purpose - The in character purpose of the order Where the loyalty of the order is - Where the order takes its orders from mainly. Any other information on the order - What more one wants to say The following isn't concerning orders in particular, but can ofc: This much said, I have another set of questions, which concerns specially in character important locations. So if you happen to know a location that has changed ic and that is still active, please mention a location with what has changed, also some short explanation what the change ic is due from. In character environmental changes: Flooded locations Plagued locations Wall Broken bridge Tunnel The valuable resources, if you know a place with such, please mention, and also the owner of it: In character valuable resources: Gold Weapons/Armor Stockpile Ore/Metals Supply Storage The important locations in character, with following meaning, add short description: Important in character event locations: Battle site - date if possible Sacred Location Foul Location This is work in progress, more ideas welcome what to add, so I'll add them. This post is a copy of the original from defiasrp.com forums: http://www.defiasrp.com/t9153-a-h-n-rp-pvp-the-grand-campaign-map-a-knowledge-base-for-planning-rp-pvp-campaigns6
Bloodwind (A) is Recruiting!
Hello all, Bloodwind, the oldest and the best PvP guild from Defias Brotherhood is currently recruiting in Legion. We have a multitude of Gladiator, Hero of the Alliance, and 2400+ Players, as well as many contacts across Europe who we play RBGs/Arena with. By being in the guild you have access to play with some very experienced PvPers, as well as being a part of our somewhat 'unique' community. ;) There is a lot more about the guild that you may wish to know, so don't hesitate to poke myself or one of the other officers in the guild in game. [Edited] PS. Our requirements to join are a minimum of 2400+ experience (preferably this season) in the 3v3 Arena bracket, we don't care about RBG experience for a number of reasons. This may be subject to change in the future. It IS possible to join as someone with less experience - but you will need to show sufficient motivation and interest in rated PvP to be given a trial, and you will also be on trial to see how you do and if you improve (in terms of rating for example). Update: If you wish to apply to the guild you could either apply using our forums at http://bloodwind.freeforums.net/ or you could contact me (or one of the other officers such as Antigen or Auraen) in game. :) At the moment we have a particular need for leather users and healers of all (class) colours, in both PvP and our wonderful adventures in the world of PvE! Also - we shall be raiding in this new expansion as not only is it jolly good fun, but it improves your Item Level in rated PvP. So, if you are interested in the higher end of rated PvP and have an intent to raid (Mythics) in this expansion then don't hesitate to contact an officer!281
Want to raid but not ready for mythic?
Hey =) Angels of Absolution are an international PVE focused guild on the English speaking Defias Brotherhood server. We are a socially strong and committed casual raiding guild looking for more like-minded individuals. We are a brand new guild (founded Feb 2017) that has already formed a rock solid foundation. Our focus is to progress through Legion raiding content, while safeguarding our guild’s trademark; an exceptionally friendly and helpful atmosphere with focus on raiding. Our main objective: offer a home for people with RL commitments who still want to enjoy everything the game has to offer and do so in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Our current members are aged 25+ with varying levels of experience in World of Warcraft. This includes individuals that are brand new to the game or learning a new character, to people with recent Edge achievements. Everyone is always willing to help. All our members have a few things in common however, we are a bunch of committed people, who are aware of the fact that real life is, and should be, the biggest time consumer. This makes AoA the perfect home for any player who cannot commit to the hardcore style, but still wants to raid regularly while having loads of fun! The guild is led by an experienced officer core that are married, have kids and appreciate people cannot always play WoW. As such, there is no guild drama, just an enjoyable atmosphere for all. What we look for in a potential member: - Social skills. You know how to have fun, and love to interact with others! - Maturity. We have an 18+ only policy (our youngest member is 25) - Patience, willingness and determination to make the guild a success. Every member counts! Our raiding - Wednesday starting at 20:30 to 23:00 ST, Optional Monday at 20.30 to 23.00 (giving everyone enough time to get home, enjoy some family time, kids to bed etc). - Open to all classes and levels, however- We are on the market for healers and ranged dps. Ranged = Every class Healers = Resto Druids / Holy priests / Resto Shams / Monk MW If interested please contact any member of our guild council. Izu#21339 Rev#21670 Superstar#22589 Look forward to hearing from you. Regards Angels of Absolution1
Veteran WW monk looking for progression guild.
Name and age: Lia Brenner, 31. Ukraine-born citizen of Israel. Having working knowledge of English at a professional level. Character Information: Slithra, windwalker orc monk. Average item level 901. 54 artifact traits. 4 set bonus. No offspec to speak of. Armory Link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/Defias%20Brotherhood/Slithra/advanced Previous guild experience: For the entire WoD, I used to be a member of Wipe Material. The progression through Emerald Nightmare has exposed an unfortunate fact in regard to windwalker monks: despite being remarkably strong during the expansion's launch, they did not quite manage to hold up as gear levels increased due to lack of synergy between artifact traits and comparatively lackluster legendaries. Recognizing this, I passed on loot and, eventually, spots in favor of allowing the raid to stack specs better suitable for current content, which the guild could afford to due to constant recruitment. By the time windwalkers got a much deserved buff, myself and several other people who stuck with the guild throughout good and bad times (Warlords of Draenor certainly qualifies as the latter) were unable to attend progression raids for months, despite being online during the entire raid time in case backups were needed. Eventually, the guild decided to switch to loot council and rewards for attendance were scrapped altogether, making people such as me the proverbial fifth wheel in a remarkably well-oiled machine. As I kept upgrading gear through M+ and pugging, recent monk buffs allowed me to perform on par with regular raiders, but by this point all available spots have long been filled by consistently performing, reliable people. Since I was on good personal terms with the bulk of the guild, leaving was not a move I considered lightly, but I had to resort to it regardless once it became obvious I am unlikely to be needed in raids again. Considering the guild's overall overwhelming success and the recognition of the issue as a systemic problem in which nobody was particularly to blame, I left without complaint. Following this, I've applied to Uprising and seemed to perform well during trial period; unfortunately, three weeks later, the guild's officers have recently announced cessation of raids and upcoming guild transfer to another server due to apparent lack of potential recruits on Defias Brotherhood - a move I am not inclined to follow on considering I've stayed on this server since it was first launched and, in my opinion, it keeps being a friendly environment with significant raiding opportunities. Experience: I am a veteran raider, continuously subscribed since 2005. With the exception of vanilla content and Sunwell, I was able to clear most of the previous expansions' content at the highest level available during their respective patches. Unfortunately, as of now my current experience is significantly behind (Heroic Nighthold and Scorpyron mythic.) What addons do you use to help your performance in raids? Besides mandatory suites such as Deadly Boss Mods, GTFO, Weak Auras, or damage meters, I rely on an assortment of raid alerts, hardware macroes and purpose-tailored scripts, some of which I have made personally (the extent of their functionality is still an issue in some cases). I consider this necessary for maximization of awareness due to having a visual impairment (One blind eye), and try to ensure I am provided with as much information as I can pay attention to. Personal approach to class play style: Windwalker rotation is largely based on having chi available to cast hard-hitting abilities in their respective priority order (Fists of Fury, Strike of the Windlord, Rising Sun Kick) as they come off cooldowns, while also maintaining Hit Combo and not using two chi generators after each other. This is typically obtained by having an exact sequence of events scripted out on a timetable several minutes in advance with fairly rigid windows in which each ability should be used for optimal results, accounting for chi generation over time; unfortunately, boss mechanics and assorted procs tend to interfere in the process, forcing the monk to improvise. Nevertheless, with the use of Energizing Elixir it is quite plausible to keep Hit Combo up for the entire encounter and never cap on either energy or chi. However, it is still borderline impossible to play a windwalker at the level simulations often assume; there will be lapses of second or more once GCD and the probability of two major abilities going off cooldown at once is taken to account. I use Potion of Prolonged Power, as it has been confirmed superior for Storm, Earth and Fire (prolonged duration allows for use both charges of SEF). Should Serenity come out on top due to changes - I'm an alchemist with rank 3 in most "proper" damage potions. I use versatility or mastery food depending on my current stat balance. My opening generally consists of using Prolonged Power two seconds before pull, opening with Touch of Death, using Energizing Elixir, toggling Storm, Earth and Fire, and continuing from Fists of Fury onwards down the priority list. Throughout the encounter, Touch of Death is best used on cooldown while the two-charge mechanic of Storm, Earth and Fire means it is better saved for vulnerability/AoE/bloodlust/transition/other manner of phases when burst is more welcome than usual. Talent rationale: Chi Wave provides a steady stream of damage and healing; while not as effective as Chi Burst in AoE situations, monks do not exactly lack in AoE department, and Chi Wave has a short cooldown; as such, it can be used to maintain Hit Combo stacks in between Tiger Palms. Energizing Elixir provides the highest chi return per unit of time, but most importantly, it is usable on demand, plugging holes in rotations when abilities come off cooldown but no chi is available to cast them (which happens most often when the monk has to alternate between single target and chi-intensive AoE). There is no clear winner between Hit Combo and Xuen and as such, switching between them based on specific fights is considered mandatory. Hit Combo is, at least on paper, the optimal target choice for vast majority of single target situations as it's a flat damage bonus that is easy to maintain assuming rotation is performed correctly. However, due to recent buffs that nearly quadrupled its overall damage, Xuen is liable to performing better in many real environments, especially on fights that require alternating between area effect and single target damage and/or massive burst on pull. Rushing Jade Wind is a strong contender in situations where there's nothing but adds (and thus excels in M+), but for the most part, would not be viable on raid bosses. While Serenity is often the go-to damage talent of choice in the final tier, Storm, Earth and Fire surpasses its damage potential assuming the monk has a legendary capable of extending its duration, which I have. Whirling Dragon Punch becomes the default choice in this situation, as it provides essentially free damage and extends Hit Combo further. Example log parse: Heroic Nighthold clear - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/Zfby9vnwHAgFCLzq (Please disregard miserable wipes on Gul'dan) Communication: I do have a microphone set up and may use any voice comm without issues, although I would prefer to do the bulk of non-mission-critical communication in chat and would not feel particularly comfortable if during offtime, chat is ignored while the guild largely speaks on Discord, as is often the case nowadays. Preferred schedule: For years, I've been consistently able to make raids on different schedules, assuming it's past 19:00; early raids on weekends, for example, would not be feasible for me to attend. I consider showing up consistently a major factor in my WoW "career" so far, and have been often chosen over people with stronger overall performance and worse attendance; however, Legion in general has attracted many more people to the game and attendance was no longer an issue for my former guild, making this point somewhat moot. Other notes: I am available for faction transfer given serious offers. Please do not suggest server transfers.6

[A-RP] The <Wardens of Azeroth> are Recruiting!
The Wardens of Azeroth are a group of like-minded individuals from within the Alliance; fighters, mages, charity workers, healers, fund raisers, diplomats, and artisans who bring their different backgrounds and experience together to care for and protect the innocent people of Azeroth. The strong protect the weak, and whilst not all Wardens are warriors or combatants, they use their strengths to better the lives of others. We are a family of brothers and sisters in arms, and in quill. We accept all races and classes (though not IC Warlocks, for IC reasons), and also accept players who roleplay as artisans or talented civilians. We engaged in diplomatic and combat orientated roleplay. For instance, we are currently running the "Westfall Project" which focuses on helping the people of Westfall settle farming disputes, set up fishing docks, and clear out the mine of Kobolds. During our combat orientated roleplay we use a rolling system developed by the combined effort of multiple experienced roleplayers on the server, though common sense trumps rolls (generally, nobody misses with a shotgun from point-blank range, for example). The Wardens also pride themselves on welcoming new and inexperienced roleplayers. If you're new to this whole roleplay thing we have the resources, loremasters, and kind players to help you get the most out of your new hobby. Quickly approaching our 5th anniversary, we are a large and continuously growing community of like-minded players, roleplayers, and friends. We have a dedicated officer team who maintain a pleasant IC and OOC environment, our well-maintained and trafficked website, and help new players to start and run their own RP events and storylines. If you are interested in joining the guild, or for more information, either /whisper Cármtan, Gerrond, or Carcia in-game or go to http://wardensofazeroth.wowlaunch.com36
[A](Rp-pvp) Interested in creating a new rp-pvp guild?
Hello, I've been interested to have a new rp-pvp guild established on the realm. I wish to offer myself and The Ninth Company as a guild to assist the new roleplay order. It would great to have it as an in character ally to The Ninth Company. If you'r interested on setting up and start a new guild, or have an idea that could be used for this, please approach here or ingame, so we can plan further. I know this is quite a task to start a new guild, but I think with fresh idea, actively playing gm and some fellows to help and keep it going, this would be really great to have accomplished. I think the order that would be created, could be in character any location or race bound, so the idea can be any, only it should be roleplay and pvp oriented, also for rp-pvp battles in the world. Also somekind of realism in the idea, so it would be easier to get along ic, when it would be easily accepted in character to be a possible order withing the lore of World of warcraft. Here some links: The Ninth Company thread: https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17612893468 My thread on defiasrp.com forums on this same topic: http://www.defiasrp.com/t9182-a-looking-for-interested-on-creating-a-new-rp-pvp-guild3
[A][Rp-PvP] The Ninth Company
*A poster on noticeboards at all Alliance capital cities.* Greetings fellow Alliance members. The Ninth Company is currently looking for new members to join for the effort at the Western Plaguelands and for protecting of the Kingdom of Stormwind. The Ninth Company is an Alliance military order based in these times at the Tower of Azora, Elwyn Forest and at Hearthglen, Western Plaguelands. If you are looking for a membership, you may approach any Ninth Company member for further guidance on how to gain membership. Thank you and King's Honour! About: The Ninth Company is mainly a rp guild with some pvp along the way. Meaning groups for random bg:s and participating in rp-pvp campaigns and battles that take place from time to time on the realm. Mostly Ninth roleplay concentrates today to Lordaeron, but guild's second roleplaying area is the Kingdom of Stormwind, where Ninth serves as a military unit for protecting the Kingdom. There is also an outpost located at Greywatch, Stormheim. We are a friendly guild and accept all races and classes to join. There are no requirements for joining, but for gaining ranks one needs to participate in roleplay. The ranks are general: Recruit, Armsman, Sergeant, Lieutenant, highest being Captain. These serve a roleplay sense and also requires some dedication. Ranks don't take a lot to gain, it only asks for participating and the rest goes with the flow. So this isn't very complicated and we aren't having an unwelcoming attitude towards new guild members or new roleplayers. If one wants to organize something with us, we will try to participate in it and help with getting ideas going that might bring the idea to be experienced for everyone in guild and on the realm possibly. So Ninth is open for ideas. Only keeping it in realism within the game world and so it's possible. Join for heroism and victory!
