Weâ€™re a home for people with significant school, work, or personal commitments that make regularly raiding 3+ nights impractical. Our members excel at the game, but cannot commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional guilds.
We are the #1 ranked 2-night guild in the US, and in the top 3 world-wide. It IS possible to progress like a hardcore guild, but raid like a casual one. We finished DS U.S. #23 10-man overall.
Our members strive to be not just great players, but great people too. We are friendly, mature, laid back, and work together to get the job done.
Weâ€™re Alliance on Alleria.
We have two raid teams. Our success in Cataclysm has given us an incredible ability to recruitâ€“weâ€™re able to fill two teams with players that are as skilled as they come. The strength of a guild in the long run is not who is on the roster currently but how well they can recruit for spots that inevitably open. On that we are one of the best: we get dozens of applications for each spot and we can afford to keep our acceptance rate at around 5%.
We have two raid teams: Red and Blue. They are equal in skill and competitiveness.
Both Teams: Wednesday/Thursday 7:30-11:00 EST
Our teams run just two nights per week, 3.5 hours per night. We use a tight roster of 11 members per team. Our members have near 100% attendance. Real life happens, but itâ€™s rare.
Right now, Red Team has one opening for which any of the following would work:
Shaman (elemental, resto, or resto/elemental hybrid)
Death Knight (DPS)
Druid (Balance, Resto, or Resto/balance)
Paladin (holy or ret)
Priest (shadow or shadow/healer hybrid)

What Makes Our Guild Different:
The three most common things people look at when searching for guilds are (1) current class openings, (2) progression, and (3) raid times. While those are important, here are other things that make our guild stand out, in addition to our 2-night niche:
Low Turnover. We have never lost a single person due to jumping ship to a more progressed guild. Ever. Thatâ€™s because people here genuinely enjoy our raiding environment. Thereâ€™s no feeling that people are being carried. Thereâ€™s no annoying member that is nevertheless tolerated. Thereâ€™s no drama turning people away. And frankly there are few, if any, opportunities for faster progression in just 7 hours per week.
Commitment to Scheduling. Sometimes youâ€™ll see guilds advertise certain raid schedules only to find out they regularly raid past their posted time thatâ€™s eating into your sleep or other commitments. Our raids end on time.
No Bench. Every member of our raiding roster is a valuable part of the team, and we wonâ€™t invite someone to the guild just to be a backup in case one of our raiders canâ€™t make it. Sometimes youâ€™ll see a guild advertise an open spot and end up disappointed when youâ€™re allowed in for just 1 or 2 bosses. We strive to get our trials into every single boss and to be as welcoming as possible.
No Carries. When we say our players are stellar, we donâ€™t mean 9 out of 10 of them are. Our entire roster consists of some of the best players youâ€™ll find. While we will replace someone for performance reasons if thereâ€™s an issue, there rarely is. We do a great job of weeding potential problems out in the recruitment stage so that it doesnâ€™t become a problem.
Personality. We take the game seriously, but with a laid-back attitude. Nobody yells, and everyone maintain a light-hearted attitude, even during progression. We donâ€™t troll general chat or brag on the forums. Overall our members are mature and pleasent to be around. We're accepting of all kinds of people, and have been home to women, LGBT members, parents, and foreigners.
