Want to Join Us?
Are you looking for a guild that is active and friendly? Do you want to tackle new content, but don't have time for those "hardcore" guilds? Or are you a former member of a "hardcore" guild who doesn't want to be required to raid every single night? Then Devotion may be for you.
Devotion is a "casual raiding" guild. We don't raid every night, nor do we require attendance for a certain percentage of raids. Our members raid when they want. But this doesn't mean we don't take raiding seriously. We have raid leaders and players who are some of the most skilled and competent on the server. The only difference is that they choose to put their real life first, then log on to have fun with friends in a raid setting.
Before you decide whether you want to join Devotion, please read our Guild Rules. These rules outline who we are, how we raid, and how the guild is run. If you believe Devotion is still a good fit for you, then read this page and fill out the application linked at the bottom of this page. Our officers will review your application and get in touch with you. If we feel you might be a good fit, we will invite you to the guild on a trial basis so you can get a feel of the guild. This will allow you to attend one or more of our raids so you can see how our raids are run and we can evaluate your playstyle and capabilities.
Once you have run a raid or two with us, our officers will decide whether or not you are a good fit with the guild. If you make it, congratulations!
What you need to know before applying
Basic Class Knowledge
- All applicants are required to be familiar with all of your spells, abilities and talents.
- All new applicants will be expected to review general strategies for the content via wowwiki, youtube, guild forums, etc.
- All new applicants will be given a brief run-down of encounters prior to engaging; if the raid leader failed to do so, it is your job to ask.
- All new applicants will be expected to know how to play their class. We will not tell you which spell, ability, etc. to use for the task at hand
Raiding schedule and attendance
- The raid schedule is posted on the in-game calendar for guild members. It is your responsibility to check for new events and sign up on those you wish to attend.
- Applicants are expected to attend at least one complete raid before final evaluation. Five-man dungeon/heroic runs with guild members may also help applicants gain acceptance.
- You will be expected to know how to follow directions, remember them the next time, and have basic raid knowledge of your class responsibilities such as buffing, de-buffing, crowd control, aggro management, etc.
- If you DO NOT have a reliable internet connection and/or a computer that can run WoW relatively lag-free (which doesn't take much); do not apply, please. If you are constantly lagging or going linkdead you are wasting your time and ours.
- Please do not apply if you are under 18 years of age.
Classes desired and How to Fill Out the Application
- We are on the Bronzebeard US Server (PVE).
- Cross-server applicants are required to provide their former server and former guild name as well as give a reference from that guild.
- Use the comments box to sell yourself. First impressions are very important.
- Skilled players are desired. Gear is not so much a factor as knowing how to play, hence us wanting to have applicants on a full raid to evaluate their performance. Several times we've seen a character in blue gear out-perform someone in full epics.
- We currently have no restrictions on classes, however we are currently looking for the following:
- Healers: Healers are desperately needed. All healers will be considered.
- Tanks: Any decently geared tank will be considered.
- DPS: Our DPS ranks are filling up. We will be extremely selective with those classes.
What you should do during the application process
- Get the required apps and mods if you don't already have them. These are:
- Ventrilo - We use Ventrilo for our raid communications. Server info will be given out before raids.
- Threat mod - Omen is the most used in the guild. KTM is acceptable.
- Boss mod - Deadly Boss Mods or BigWigs.
- Join our Forums. Introduce yourself to our members and participate. Please use your main character's name as your forum name.
- Review the Raid Calendar. We sometimes post "unofficial" runs such 5-mans and heroics. Participate in those to get to know us better, and to show off your skills.
Please do not bother the officers about your application status. Also, don't round-robin our members to try to inquire about your status. If you submitted an application and haven't heard back from us, you were probably rejected, or we missed your application somehow. Submit another application if you don't hear back from us after a couple of weeks.
Thanks for reading everything above. If you're ready to join, then please fill out the application form. Be thorough! Descriptive and well-written applications will get extra consideration.
