(A) Highland Warriors Thunderhorn 8/8N 5/8HC

Thunderhorn / Wildhammer
Who are we?

The Highland Warriors are thirteen year old guild, which is an achievement in itself - almost as old as the Hills(brad) ;) We’d likely describe ourselves as a casual raiding guild, but this doesn’t really do us justice – we’re not just about raiding and we’re more than the sum of our raiding parts.

The Highland Warriors are a friendly community of like-minded players, over the age of 18 - some just about, but most a significant amount of time since. We’re an old fashioned guild with old fashioned values. We believe that members of the guild should be able to rely on each other, no matter what your personal play preference, for raids; for mythics; for levelling; for achievement hunting; for the daily grind of World Quests and rep gains. To us, being in a guild is about sharing the experiences of this World of Warcraft together.

We have a number of guildies who have played since Vanilla, we have Burning Crusaders and Wrath Babies - a wealth of experience, knowledge and a stable core who have “grown up” within Warcraft. Our community is everything, and this is why we have been around so long.



Currently assaulting the current raiding tier, on Heroic, which is Uldir.

Current raids run on a Wednesday & Sunday from 9:00pm server time, until 11:30 server time

At this point, it's probably a good idea to add that we also don’t use voice comms as the official channel for raids: we do have a discord server and lots of us get onboard the in-game voice comms, but raids are not run through it. So whether you like the heavy breathing of mics, and the savaging of Fnny, Kint & Kaos et al or prefer the gentle tap of keys, there is an option to suit all :)


Not Raiding

When we're not seeking vengeance on the denizens of our current raiding tier, we mythic; we heroic; we world quest; some pvp; some achievement farm; some level their 874586th alt /coughSIFcough... Me, I just spend obscene amounts of money at the hairdressers to match the outfit of the week. Whatever you're into, there's someone to share your passion with, to help you and to spend time with in this crazy world we call home.


What we’re looking for

If you can keep up your HoTs when all about you
Are losing health and blaming it on you,
If you can taunt a boss when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
If you can raid — and not make loot your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Trolled in /General to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the gear you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and fix ’em up with worn-out anvil:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of end game boss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your armour and cooldowns and trinkets
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except when Windavell calls break with: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk in guild and general and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Titans — nor lose the common touch,
If neither trash nor loving guildies can hurt you,
If all raiders count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of awesome DPS,
Yours is Azeroth and everything that’s in it,
And — which is more — you’ll be a Highland Warrior, my friend!

Currently, we are looking for... well, everything: raiders, socials, heroic and mythic+ dungeoneers, newbies, oldies, rerollers, horde defectors... Heroes :)

We've joined the Battle for Azeroth and we need you!
