About Us

Taint Invaders (TI) is a Horde-side progression guild within the Spreading Taint family of guilds on US Proudmoore (PvE) that is focused on rapidly pushing through new content and completing all "hard mode" encounters in a quick, organized way. The Spreading Taint (or just "Taint"), TI's parent guild, is the preeminent LGBT-friendly (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) guild in the country -- with over 2500 members (from social members, to casual raiders, to hardcore raiders), Taint is the 2nd largest guild in the world. Taint Invaders, the hardcore raid group for which we are recruiting, has a very active roster of about 30 members, many of whom have been with the guild for a long time: the raid, in various formations, has been around since classic WoW. Proudmoore is known as the "gay" server in WoW -- WowInsider recently profiled Taint and Proudmoore: WoW.com: The new WoW Insider (http://www.wowinsider.com/2008/10/21/15-mi...out-glbt-pride/)

Raid Schedule

Tuesday: 6-10pm PST
Wednesday: 6-10pm PST
Thursday: 6-10pm PST
Monday: 6-10pm PST (lockout period ends)

Extended times are scheduled for 10 mans (optional, unless there's a hard-mode we're focusing on), PTRs (attendance strongly encouraged), and new content (attendance expected).

Current Progression:

Taint Invaders is 2/5 in heroic TOC with the following hardmode encounters dead:

Northrend Beasts
Lord Jaraxxus

TI will also continue working on Ulduar-25 hardmode encounters. We are currently 8/9 on the meta hardmode achievements, with the following completed:

Flame Leviathan (Orbit-uary)
XT-002 (Heartbreaker)
Iron Council (I Choose You, Steelbreaker)
Hodir (I Could Say This Cache was Rare)
Thorim (Lose Your Illusion)
Freya (Knock, Knock, Knock on Wood)
Mimiron (Firefighter)
General Vezax (I Love the Smell of Saronite in the Morning)

The majority of our heroic 25-man kills have been faction firsts and top 5 overall on Proudmoore.

In 10-man, TI's progression team is 9/9 on the meta hardmodes, with more raiders getting their Rusted Proto-Drakes every week. Algalon-10 is on farm status.

At the start of Ulduar we obtained many server-first kills and achievements. At the end of the first lockout period we defeated Yogg-Saron-10 (realm first) and 12 out of 14 Ulduar-25 bosses. Yogg-Saron 25 died on 05/18.

Pre-Ulduar, Taint Invaders collected a server first Glory of the Raider and had Sartharian + 3 Drakes on farm status.

About You

Recruiting is open for all classes. We are recruiting the player, not the class.

Members need to maintain high attendance and arrive with the best gear/gems/enchants available to them, maximum consumables, repair gold, and a good attitude. You will be expected to show talent, improve constantly, take criticism like an adult, and be up-to-date on theorycrafting. You need to maintain a dedicated progression mindset. Consistent performance is expected: no one will be grandfathered into a raid slot.

We're all mature (more or less) adults, and you need to be as well. Taint is an LGBT guild and gchat can get over-the-top sometimes, so we require all applicants to be 18+.
