  • About Dead Men Raiding RSS Feed


    Our guild was founded on the principles of the dMw community and we strive to provide our members with a mature, drama-free environment where everyone cares about making the guild the best it can be and having fun whilst playing the game.

    We like to raid but we still want to have a real life. We emphasise quality over quantity, both in terms of time spent raiding and in the way we deal with our members.


    We want our members to be sociable & fresh for each raid so we only raid 3 nights per week
    , but we ask for your commitment to those nights. We feel this is more fun and more productive than strapping your head to the raid grindstone for 5 hours per night, 6 nights per week. Most of our members are in full-time employment and/or have children, so we start our raids a little later than most guilds to allow time for people to get home, have dinner and prepare for our raids properly. Likewise we finish a little earlier than most to accommodate those who need to get up early next morning.

    Everyone in Dead Men Raiding is there for the long run because they believe in our founding principles and because they enjoy the environment we provide. By keeping a tightly-knit force of dedicated & friendly people we will be able to progress at a steady pace and finish raid content without breaking our necks over it.


    You


    - It really helps if your completed application template to this guild is neatly filled in and without typo's. We understand that English is not everyone's first language, but if we aren't interesting enough for you to pull your application through a spellchecker at least once,
    then you can't expect us to be interested in return.

    -
    We're a highly sociable guild that enjoys a lot of guild chat banter and forum activity. If you are not able to take an active part in all guild communications, don't apply to an English speaking guild like us.

    - Although we won't exclude people based on age, people under the age of 20 will have to prove they can fit in
    as most of our members are over that age.

    Gear & Attitude


    We are perfectly willing to accept under-geared recruits if they are really good players & people. Badge gear, reputation gear, some pvp gear, whatever is available is something you should have as an under-geared applicant. However, more important than your gear is that you fit in with the existing members of the guild. If you cannot socialise well with us on Teamspeak and in guild chat then this guild is not for you.

    Raiding


    At the end of the day we play this game for fun and if we can't shoot the breeze more often than not, what's there to play for, right?
    When we're raiding we don't require you to be a heartless robot that can take all the abuse in the world without breaking a sweat, but you need to be able take any criticism at face value and not fret too much it. We expect our members to be mature enough to handle it and with good enough communication skills to be involved with encounter, class or 'problem' discussions and to explore the game, your character and its abilities to the fullest extent to better help the raid progress. A proactive & positive attitude towards everything is important.

    We do realize that the above goals might not always be what happens in practice. As with all things in life, there can be a lot of factors that interfere with your goals. However, not striving for an ideal and just accepting the status quo is not a healthy way to go about things.

    If after all of this you still think you can put up with us and have some energy left to write a
    great application, then feel free to apply here.
