Bound to the service of the red dragon aspect Alexstrasza the Lifebinder, we are her agents in the world of mortals. Where she cannot interfere, we go. Where the Horde and Alliance fear to tread, she empowers and protects us. For the Dragonqueen!
Yeah, we did it. We formed our own guild, foolhardy lot that we are. Led by a triumvirate – a council of three – our primary aim is building a community, with secondary ambitions of fielding a ten-man raiding team.
Getting ten signatures to form up was easy, requiring merely a small application of gold, a free bag and many, many polite enquiries. The real trick now is bringing good, long-term members aboard and our exact recruiting strategy is uncertain. Assuming we manage to find a good group of high level players reasonably soon, it may still be possible to knock out the Lich King before the cataclysm.
This is unlikely to be an easy achievement by any stretch of the imagination as it relies on us finding 80s who are willing to join a guild with no current progression! Hopefully we can sell the idea of a stable community to people who are disinterested in the purely achievement-driven raiders. Gear after all is merely a means to an end, a way to access higher levels of content. What matters is that you have a level of activity that suits you, things are organised reasonably efficiently and you’re with people you like and group well with. I’m certain there are people out there who can’t pull off the hardcore 5 – 7 days a week of raiding (we all work random hours), but who don’t want just a completely casual guild. Can we find them? Are they even ON Blade’s Edge-EU?
Tune in next <arbitrary time period> to find out (maybe)!
