Schadenfreude has its initial roots as a PvP-oriented guild, on a roleplaying server no less. In the past few years we've transformed ourselves into a successful raiding guild comprised primarily of older players on the Argent Dawn server. Schadenfreude has an extremely low attrition rate, and many of our members have been with us for 4+ years. Today we are seeking mature, team-oriented individuals, that seek a permanent home, and a fun environment, in which to excel.
Schadenfreude raids Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights from 7pm to 10pm. Form up is at 6:30pm. If you are looking to raid seven days a week, six hours a day, you'll probably find a better fit elsewhere.
Schadenfreude uses a DKP system for Loot Distribution, and clears out the points earned in the system for each new instance/tier of content.
Schadenfreude pays repair costs for our Veteran raiding members and provides fish feast consumable buffs. Other then that, we expect you to show up to raids with proper consumables for your role, and a sound knowledge of strategies for current encounter.
Druid - Restoration: You are a top healer. You don't stand in the shit.
