Our raid is coming along swimmingly. We’re having a great time together, seeing some fights, really settling into the learning curve. We’ve yet to down a boss after two weeks of serious raiding, but I am very optimistic about this weekend. We’re going to go back and break Halfus Wyrmbreaker Friday or Saturday!
We’ve got some really awesome players who are great to raid with. My healing team is shaping up amazingly, thanks to some very talented ladies who know how to bring it. We may occasionally have tank issues but that hasn’t happened yet; our off tank owes some weekends to the Army but so far has been able to work with us.
Unfortunately we’ve got a hole in our roster, maybe two. Our weakest area is ranged dps. We have a pair of awesome mages who I love – but that’s it. We really need at least one more ranged and I’d really like to have twos I have flexibility. What I want is a hunter. But can one be found? No… we just don’t seem to have any in guild who are leveled, geared, and not already raiding with us on a different character. Reversion could level his, but then we’d be short a tank.
I’d be interested in a shadow priest, warlock, or ele shaman too.
What’s this mean? Well, I can’t promise anything because so much is about balance and how you would fit into our raid. But if you liked the sound of our raid, and the guidelines, and are a ranged dps, why don’t you think about coming to play with us?
Important stats: Crits and Giggles live on Winterhoof (A, US), a moderate population PVE server. Honestly the server does not have many awesome raid guilds and is relatively unprogressed; once we get going we’ll be respectably in the middle of the pack. We raid Friday and Saturday nights, 7-11 Central Standard Time. We’re in Vent during raids. We’re a friendly group that values fun – but downing bosses is more fun than wiping, so we are results oriented. Very female and family friendly; on a given evening half the raid is female and I like that. We don’t permit mean-ness or abuse of raid members, we’ll ask you to tone it down if your language is offensive, but we’re not that uptight.
If you want more details you can roll a level 1 character and whisper me or Reversion in game.
I know server transfer is a big step and without a guarantee of a raid spot it seems like a big step to make. We’re not looking for a max level theorycrafter; we are looking for someone who is a really good player and a great person to play with. We are obviously a very alt-friendly guild and nobody’s going to look at you funny if you’re the type to have lots of alts; on the other hand there’s plenty of sympathy for the one-main-only type players.
Why am I recruiting here, rather than on a realm forum or trade chat? Simply put we really want the kind of player who will go learn things about his or her class, not be taken by surprise by patches, read strategies, and contribute to the discussion. Hence, blog readers seem to be our target market!
