Honor and Arms (10m) is looking for additional raiders to boost our core as we progress further into Dragon Soul heroics. We are a "casual hardcore" guild, and have always taken pride in raiding two nights a week and still staying fairly competitive. We are looking for more players in preparation for MoP as we conclude with Cataclysm.

We pride ourselves on maintaining a close-knit community. We have been around since the beginning of WoW, and many of us are friends outside of the game. We transfered here from Stormrage, as that was a dying horde server. Many of us work full time, are parents, or students who share a strong desire to experience end game progression without spending all week playing or wasting time. We do take raiding seriously so we try to maximize our time together.

Our raid is in immediate need of a healer and a DPS or possibly two. We would strongly favor a non-shaman/priest healer but if someone is good enough we have no problems making exceptions. A strong DPS off-spec is bonus but not strictly necessary. Any melee other than a rogue and a ranged class. Currently running a Spriest/Mage both with staffs. We will consider any good player regardless of class though, of course.

*** Outside of vacations, emergencies, and regularly scheduled off nights we expect your attendance. We can't afford too many setbacks due to scheduling. We expect communication if you know you cannot make it.

*** Gear is not an issue, we can always help in that department. Gear will come. We are looking for good (know your class inside and out), determined, and passionate raiders. People eager to learn and also able to enjoy themselves. We have a lot of fun raiding together.

*** We are results oriented. We're looking for competitive players who maybe don't have a ton of time to actually play but are willing to make good use of the time available.

Our Raid times:

Tuesday = 8:00 pm EST to 11:00 pm EST
Thursday = 8:00 pm EST to 11:00 pm EST

Current Progression:

1/8H *** After easily going 6/7H in Firelands, we have had a VERY slow start in DS heroics. Due to vacations, emergencies and weddings. Life happens, we tried to stick it out but we just aren't getting consistent attendance from a few core raiders anymore. We are looking to fill out the spots we need to get moving, plus some. We have the skill and ability/coordination to be at least 4-5/8H. We are still very determined and dedicated to finish out DS heroic progression.

We are also considering a guild merger if that is an option for anyone out there.

We do supply flasks, food, potions and repairs to our raiders.

Contacts (in-game):
Xliv, Fatuan, Rabidity, Stawrscreem, Adfecto

This has been posted on the realm forums, and MMO. I added your name to the in-game contacts if I felt you would be someone to represent us well and talk to someone if they came to speak to you.

There are also 2 guilds on ZJ that I have found that we may be able to approach about a merger. I'll update everyone on Thursday when you show up :)

Laptop took a shit... I got a backup at the house though. Should be home first week of March. The time line is pretty solid now +/- 72 hours. Should be half days and vacation time until May, then spring turkey season, but hunting stops at noon so it won't be an issue. Farther into the summer... idk yet. The army is doing a huge shift in maning requirements and training projections. I could have more time off then before or no change. We'll see.

As for plans for vacation, I'll give you guys a heads up now. Gonna head down to Maryland for a weekend to visit some friends and maybe hit up Busch Gardens in VA too. Dates are not solid. I'd love to be considered even an alternate for the team since ToD broke up. Got a little catching up to do with gear and strats so I know I'm gonna take a back to seat to someone more ready to go. I'm just glad to get the hell out of this country and catch some raiding before MoP hits.

I'd love to fill that melee dps slot. I've looked for you in game over the past few days, but haven't seen anyone on. I'll be on this evening though.

I have had 4 people come to me with interest. We are trying 3 of them out Thursday. Corail, which character are you wanting to bring?

We already filled the raid tomorrow with 3 recruits, but I have no issues trying you out for the team. I honestly wasn't sure who else was still playing on ZJ within HnA anymore :)

We'll see how things go tomorrow.

You might want to take a look at some of our parses. We're looking for a replacement for Kilraen who was no slouch in the DPS department. Your gear level isn't quite as high as his, so you might want to go to parses 3 or 4 weeks after we started running DS for more of an apples to apples approach on how do you stack up skillwise since I honestly have no clue if you know how to play. Also, keep in mind that we want to do HMs (tho we always finish the clear on thursday nights). If you're not interested in wiping to one boss all night, we're really not the right group to be with. Attendance is beyond critical too. I'd favor an average player who said he'd be there 100% versus a monster player who said 95%. If you tend to take unexpected naps that leave you in a comatose state and completely unresponsive to the outside world at around 8pm, don't tryout!

I'm not trying to discourage you, just doing some full disclosure here.

Also, you will be relentlessly picked on for playing an enh shaman. Just saying. . .lolenh. Reroll mage yo. Get legendaries.

They don't make legendaries for shammies because we're already so awesome that giving us an OP weapon would break the game. Obviously.

A few more serious points in response:

• It's been awhile since I raided with anyone in the SS, but those who were with HnA during Wrath may remember that I healed the 25-man team (as resto druid Corail) through ToC and most of ICC. Obviously healing and dps are very different roles, but I would hope that shows I have at least a passing ability to play the game. And of course I wouldn't expect anyone to remember my attendance record, but I almost never missed a raid. I'm usually the one standing at the starting area, tapping my foot, waiting for other people to zone in.

• I tried to look up Kilraen's parses, but I can't seem to find HnA on World of Logs. Is there an alternate source of that info? In any case, my dps always seems to stack up pretty well in whatever group I'm in. For the limited amount of raiding I was able to do with ToD, I was pretty consistently at or near the top.

• I have no problem wiping all night as a part of progressing (especially since it will surely be the tank's fault). Makes it all the sweeter when the boss finally goes down. Mastering a tough fight is one of the most fun parts of this game for me.

• I would hope that my status as a relatively long-standing guildie, not to mention my willingness to follow folks over from Stormrage, would put me ahead of any new recruit when it comes to filling a vacancy. If I can't keep up, you're welcome to replace me, but at least give me the opportunity to prove myself first.

All that said, if anyone has any additional questions or concerns, let me know.

I think we're considering all candidates - we want to be successful and we achieve that by picking the person who's going to bring the most to the table.

I would show up tonight if you can, just in case someone lined up doesn't actually show up. I can't promise anything, but you never know
