<Desolation> is a 10-focused raiding guild, rebuilding a solid core. We tend to get along, help each other out, and take our raiding seriously. We will not tolerate drama or nastiness (including homophobic, racist, or sexist remarks, if meant seriously), but will tease and sometimes use adult language or talk about adult themes. Preference is for applicants to be over the age of 25, but we will consider people over the age of 20 if a member can vouch for your maturity, or you can convince us of your maturity.
We do have our share of "achievement whores," so do spend off-time chasing down some of those achievement points for the guild. Pending interest, we may also form rated PvP groups in Cataclysm.
While we only raid nine hours a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Sundays 9pm-midnight, we take said raiding seriously. We expect people to have looked up new fights, and be fully prepared with all consumables and reagents, as well as having all gear properly enchanted and gemmed with the appropriate highest-level gems before starting raid. You should be on at least 15 minutes prior to raid and all ready, so that we know if we have all spots filled. You are also expected to have a proper raid spec and glyphs. We want people who know their class, and know and understand why their priority system and spec and such is as it is, rather than just doing something blindly because elitistjerks.com told them to. We do not yell at or abuse members for mistakes; rather, we try to find out what went wrong and how we can fix it. Mistakes are fine, but we expect people not to make exactly the same mistakes over and over again.
Loot is handled by a fair loot council. The aim is to gear the raid so that we can have successful progression, rather than to cater to any individual's ego. While we do not play favourites, even for officers and friends, lack of attendance without prior notification, unenchanted/ungemmed gear, or poor attitude can negatively impact what you may get. If you do not take care of the gear you have, there is no compelling reason why we should give you more.
Our current focus is finishing off H ICC10, at 7/12 HM, and preparing for Cataclysm. We expect to help each other level and instance, so that raiding can start as soon as possible. While we are not a huge guild, we also hope to make consistent progress in guild leveling and achieving the new perks that will be available. (Particularly with the new guild rep/perk system, any alts are also welcome into the guild.)
We are primarily looking for an excellent off-tank, a great priest of any spec, as well as some DPS to fill out our ranks. This would include tank/DPS and healer/DPS hybrids, so that we always have a back-up or two for each position. We are open to all classes (although mage mains are becoming over-represented, and would have to have a spectacular application), provided you know your class, can react well to sudden changes or alternate strategies, and have good situational awareness. We also ask that you have a good enough computer and internet connection that you can be relied on to be at each raid for the full duration. And while we understand that things come up, if you AFK after every pull, this may not be the home for you.
We do not care what your GearScore is. We do expect you to have at least tier 9 and 10 level gear, know that sometimes a lower ilvl piece is better for your class and spec, and are of the opinion that how you gem and enchant it will tell us far more about what you know of your class than GearScore ever will.
If you plan to re-roll for Cataclysm, please provide some evidence of raiding experience and drive to understand your class.

Please take the application process seriously. More information is better than less, and the more you think out your replies, the fewer questions you will get.

There are some successful and unsuccessful applications in our forums as examples. We also ask that you take the time on your application to express your ideas clearly, without using internet short-forms such as "lol," "u," "ur," and the like. Make a good first impression.
