All right. It's about time I hunkered down and committed to this.
It always confused me that a gaming site as big as we are has almost no MMO representation. I know there is some of you that play. In fact, it seems like Brad Nicholson seems to like MMOs quite a bit and I know Jonathan Ross plays them from time to time as well.
I figured I would start with the biggest MMO out there (and the one I'm playing) so why not.
Here is our armory link!
We are Horde side on the Venture Co server.
Guild is a go!
Thanks to an incredibly generous random guy, he pretty much funded our entire guild.
We have two guild bank slots - all can deposit, officers can take out. This is to prevent strangers getting into our guild and robbing us. If you are trustworthy/known dtoid person I'll bump you up.
Rotguts - Technophile
Yorda - Ashley Davis
Ottawa or Gannondork - Jon Bloodspray
Gatzby - Gatsby
Are all officers at the moment and can invite. Hit them up for the guild invite.
We plan on raiding at least 10mans when we get there.
At the moment we could use
(see here for classes that fit - http://www.wowwiki.com/Class_role)
3 ranged DamagePerSecond
2 Melee DamagePerSecond
Some of this we already have covered, but the more the better. Hybrid classes can fill a few roles.
We don't have a tabard yet, but we have the money to make one so please check out this cool tabard thing and give some ideas.
The points of having a guild is this (at least for me).
To have a group of players available to do group content (raids, dungeons, tough quests, pvp) and with the new expansion, all the guild specific accolades and stuff.
I've been playing WOW since launch. Off and on and I've never done a single Raid. Why? For a couple of reasons.
1. I can't seem to get a group of people together I like playing with. With my old guild on City of Heroes, I could only convince 3 of them to even try WoW. They had that "OMG wow is full of assholes and the game is stupid" mentality pounded into their heads and refused to try it. Outside of that, people I've played with just stop playing.
2. Nearly every group in game I've tried to get with were either completely unfriendly, (not mean, but just never talked to me or invited me to anything) Hyper competitive. (ZOMG l2pnub. UR gearscore sucks) or treated it like a second job (we raid 6 times a week, you are required to be in every raid for 4 hours a day).
So since most of you seem to be reasonable people. I figured here would be a perfect place to get a guild going. I want to try raids and get cool loot and see the story bits (bit of a lore nerd, sorry) but I don't want to leech all the fun out of it. I don't care about wiping a raid, I don't see the point in rage quitting just because you lost. I want better gear because that makes the harder stuff easier to do and not so I can wave my e-peen around. I want to try out having an arena team. I want to do more of the dungeons to see the epic boss fights.
I don't care if you've never played before or if you play all the time. I don't care if you know the best build for a fighter or if you don't even know what a fighter does. The learned can teach and the new people can learn.
So, if this sounds like something you would be interested in go ahead and let me (and us) know.
