Core of Insight as a guild.
Core of Insight is a guild primarily focussed and dedicated to raiding at the top end of the content Blizzard releases at us. PvE and progress is priority number one at all times.

The guild was established in February 2005 and has been raiding ever since. We killed Kel’thuzad in original 40-player Naxxramas as the only guild to do so on our realm prior to 2.0, and Kil’jaeden within the top 100 EU guilds before 3.0 was live. We have been at the forefront of high end raiding in Wrath of the Lich King ever since, scoring multiple realm first boss kills.

What we require from a player.
We only ever recruit exceptional players, so you need to show us that this is you from the application you create. We have no template, so please construct an application longer than 3 lines long, detailing any and all information relevant to you, your character, gear, achievements, etc.

You are a player that doesn’t stand in fire, and learns from your mistakes to prevent them happening again, which hinders raid progress. You need to show us that you belong on our raid team, and not on the bench only to be used when another player is not here. Bad players do not pass trials.

Being able to listen and preferably communicate through Ventrilo 3.0 is required in all raids. Understand when to quit messing around on voice chat, and when to focus on the raid and listen to instructions and callouts from a raid leader. Also reading forums daily is required.

You must want to raid, be it farm or progress content. We require 70% attendance from you, however we do not recruit players who will have every Sunday off for football/hockey/ballet/whatever training. We understand that now and then family or work will intervene in raid times.

Plus points in your application:
Having gear sets and the ability to play multiple specs.

Plenty of raiding experience. Pre-nerf Sunwell and instances further back are highly preferred.

High achievement points. This shows character dedication, and that you don’t just raid and log off until the next evening.

Proper raiding professions. Professions that boost your tanking, DPSing or healing abilities. Herbalism is for alts, for example.

What we can offer you as a player.
High end raiding. We raid five nights a week, five hours a night; 19:00-00:00. Invites go out at 18:45. Less time is spent in raids during farm-time, usually 2 or 3 nights a week dependent upon how many instances. We use our raiding time appropriately depending on setup.

A place to level and gear your alts. Heroics and 10 mans are often scheduled through our forum. During farm raids, we often allow well geared alts into raids. Our server has constant running 25man groups to Naxxramas, Sartharion ,Malygos, Vault of Archavon, Trial of the Crusader and sometimes even Ulduar.

Note that even though we are recruiting all classes, this does not mean we'll take the first 232 t9 geared mage we see in the inbox, you still have to be an excellent player and fit in well with us. We want to grow as a guild and we do not accept mediocrity.

How you can apply.
If you feel you can fulfil our expectations of an applicant, please email your application to apps@coreofinsight.net. Alternatively, you can send a PM to Ashym on our forum at Core of Insight (http://www.coreofinsight.net) . Feel free to contact our recruitment officer Ashym ingame for a chat if you have any uncertainties or questions.

PS: Do not whisper me on the Tankspot forum.
