[H-US]<Lurkers> LF 10m raiders with less time {MST}

Postby Shoju » Mon Nov 22, 2010 12:49 pm

We are <Lurkers>, a Horde guild on Terenas (US-PVE). <Lurkers> has been around since 2004. We do not often recruit, but we have recently lost some core people to the guild.

  • About the Guild
    Our guild was born from the forums at “The Lurker Lounge”. The Lurker Lounge was home to technical discussion of Diablo II mechanics, much like EJ is home to that discussion in WoW. As testament to that, there is a link to our forums on Blizzard’s credits page for the Arreat Summit...the only link to any community forums on that page. While not totally relevant to WoW, it does give an idea of the kind of people who are at the core of the guild. Strong on game mechanics and kinda old, since we were around when Diablo II was relevant. Our guild was selected for beta testing due to our history with providing solid feedback to Blizzard. However we struggled a bit to even find 10 players willing to accept an invite because they didn’t want to be spoiled.

    We are a guild that specializes in creating a place for quality players who have low time commitments. The majority of our guild have children and a life outside of WoW. We prioritize that life outside of WoW over WoW. We have one raider under 18, who acts very mature and his father also raids with us.

    Most of our raiders, including the raid leaders, can only make 1 or 2 raids a week. We have a rostering system that favors those who can raid only once a week. A decent portion of our raiders were once hardcore raiders who, due to life changes could no longer maintain the schedule. We are a place for those who can play well enough, but simply cannot justify the time required for serious raiding.

    By placing real life commitments ahead of game commitments, we carry a pretty large roster. We also welcome those who have time to raid on 2 toons. Juggling lockouts is always a challenge for us, multi-toon players help, but we have plenty of 1 toon players too.

    By being accommodating of low time commitment, we definitely pay the price in our rate of progression. We will not be competitive on the highest end, but we will push difficult content as much as we can. In Ulduar we were the most progressed “10 man only” guild on the server and were a “top 500” 10 man only guild without trying to be. While 10m Strict isn't the pinnacle of raiding, it does show that we do have the ability to play at high levels and are a little more than a typical casual guild.

    In ICC we had some people leave the game, and that hurt us a bit, but we still had LK and most heroic modes before 4.0.1. We did not get BPC, VDW, PP or Sindy on heroic.

  • Raiding
    Our current raid schedule
    Monday 8pm-11pm server time (Mountain).
    Wednesday 8pm-11pm server time (Mountain).
    Sunday - 6-9pm Server time (mountain)

    That means 7pm - 10pm For the West Coat
    10pm - 1am for those on the East Coast.

    On the off nights, you can find people running heroics, leveling alts, going back and doing old content, PvPing, or just hanging in Org. From time to time, people within the guild have scheduled things on off nights that require a more dedicated group, but nothing is mandatory.

    Mods that we require
    We only require 1 mod. EPGP Lootmaster. This mod runs our loot system. We do not require DBM, BigWigs, etc.. if you can play and succeed without them. If we see that you are struggling with something that one of these mods would help correct, we could ask you to download and install one.

    Where we are right now
    We were 11/12 pre-4.2, with only Nef to go We have since defeated Nef as a guild.
    We are currently 4/7 with Shannox, Beth'tilac, Lord Rhyolith, and Baleroc down in Firelands. We are currently making progress on alysrazor, and should have her down in the next week or so.

  • What we are looking for
    We are currently recruiting for

    • Flexible players. Hybrid's with a DPS spec as well as a tank or heal spec are helpful. It doesn't matter what your main spec as, as long as you are comfortable and proficient at playing multiple specs. We haven't had to cancel a raid night in a while, and we are starting to see the fruits of our labor getting tanks and healers. At this point, we are looking for just a person or two that can help give us a little cushion in case we have someone out of town, or ill, or god knows what. The focus at this point will be making sure that people are good fits for the guild.

      This isn't recruiting someone to ride the bench. We strive to get everyone into raids that wants to raid. That might mean you get benched occasionally, but no more than any other player in that role and raid time. (So if you are a 2day a week healer, you wont be benched anymore than the other 2 day a week healers. we take these types of things into consideration)

    We can handle once per week raiders. We would prefer gearing in the 359-365 range at least (as optimized as you can be from VP and JP without raiding), but can accommodate those who have not been able to raid due to time constraints but have managed to get very significant pre-raid gearing.

    An ideal applicant:
    • Will have experience raiding, but are having a hard time spending enough time in game to "keep up" with your current guild's expectations. Often this is caused from a life event like a new job or change in shift, marriage and the ensuing compromises, a new child and the accompanying re-prioritization of your schedule, etc...
    • Will NOT have time for a hardcore raiding guild (these players are generally not happy with our slower pace and end up leaving)
    • Will act mature without having to fake it. Knows how to discuss issues intelligently.
    • Will not ask to bring along several other people in some kind of “package" deal. If you know someone else interested, they can speak for themselves.
    • Is not a TLDR person. Most, if not all, of our guild business happens on the forums in long posts. Membership at the The Lurker Lounge is required.
    • Is able to raid regularly, at least one day a week (barring the occasional vacation or whatever).
  • How to apply
    If you have questions before you want to apply, feel free to PM me here on the boards. Or email lurkerguildapp(at)yahoo.com I will try to answer any questions you may have.

    We do not have an application form. Just write what you think is important to us based on the information I have shared with you. Doesn’t need to be very long, as long as it accurately conveys what you think it needs to convey.

    Apply in the form of a descriptive letter with any and all information and references you feel relevant VIA PM here on the boards to me, or via email to lurkerguildapp(at)yahoo.com. If all sounds good, you can sit in on a raid via mumble if you like (we use mumble, not vent). Or make an alt and sit in on our /g for a few days before deciding.

Thanks,
Shoju

Still looking for a tank and possibly a ranged dps. Ranged needs to be a REALLY good fit.

Opening up recruiting to healers, Ranged DPS, as well as Tanks.

EDIT: I was wrong, at this point, we are unable to accommodate more Melee DPS.

Bump.

Lurkers really is a good guild. If your play time can only be devoted to 1 or 2 play nights a week but you still want to raid with a skilled group of knowledgeable raiders, Lurkers might be for you.

Check out the forums and give it a whirl!

Cheers,
sherck

Updated our progress. We are looking to get Al and Nef down prior to 4.2, and we are in a transitory position with our weekend night. We lost several weekend raiders, and are working to get a weekend night back up off the ground.

Bump.

Monday group got Shannox 10M Reg down last night for our first guild kill in Firelands.

Wednesday group will hopefully get both Shannox down and Beth.

Sunday group ran this past week and smashed both BoT and BWD for gearing of alts / filling in the gaps. Only boss they did not drop was Nef.

Lurkers was 11/12 in Tier-11 prior to 4.2 dropping with only Nef standing.

Still looking for a few good players who want to raid and have fun but only have the time to do it once or twice a week.

Cheers,
sherck
