Twisting Nether [A] <Wrath of Astranaar> an old guild for older people.
Wrath of Astranaar was founded in the fall of 2005 on the Alliance side of the Twisting Nether Server. We are older players, with the goal to explore every last drop of content within the game, while not losing the fun, social experience. Our target audience are older players (late 20's, 30+ crowd), some with families of their own, who have limited time to play, but still want to experience end-game raiding in a guild free of moody teens.
We expect our members to arrive on time and prepared for the day's content objectives, and put their best raiding-foot forward, but it's always been our belief that the pilot of the character is more important than the character itself... Toons can be re-geared, re-gemmed and re-specced... while 'jerk' is a lot harder to fix.
This past week we had a group of our core raiders depart the server to accept slots in world-ranked raiding guilds. As much as we love them and wish them well in their new ventures, our remaining raiding group is now in serious need of a good number of properly geared, experienced individuals to refill some key roles (tanking and hard-hitting dps).
WoA is a group of fun-loving, hard-working people who are focused and dedicated, don't treat raiding like a second job, and generally have a good time together. Most of our players are over 30 and have families and/or successful professional careers... and the humor and pop-culture references that get tossed out in guild-chat usually go over the head of most young players. (yes, our wit is as sharp as our swords!)
Our raid days are based on a 3-night schedule spread out to allow people to be able to actually SEE their families.
the current schedule is 7-11pm, Friday 6:30-11pm and Sunday 5:30-10pm server (US central time) with a break built in mid-way because... uh... well, some people need put their children to bed (yeah, no kidding). As mentioned above, a good group of our core have changed to top world-ranked guilds, so as of this posting, we're taking a small step back in 25-man raiding temporarily until we can fill those slots with like-minded, good people who know their class, to put us in position to jump right into the content released with Cataclysm.
* Applicants should be in a mix of ICC 10/25 gear, properly gemmed/enchanted/glyphed
* A solid understanding of your class, and well-read up on boss encounters.
* Mature, sociable, easy to get along with, and will follow instructions.
* Working Vent and have good latency/FPS.
* Able to attend at least 2 out of 3 of the 25 man ICC raid nights.
* An active memory of life experiences before the Clinton administration.
We are a good group of fun people who could really use a hand getting back on track ASAP. We are trying to fill these slots with friends but the quicker we get the right people in the right roles, the quicker we're back into ICC-25... and we're pretty much chomping at the bit.
