I probably took a bit of a different route than most. When I came back to WoW a few months ago, I knew I wanted to be in a guild. I also knew that my chances of finding one that was to my liking that would also let a brand new toon into it were very slim to say the least. Did I let that dissuade me? Not at all.I started going through the forum for my server on the official WoW forums. I checked out any and all posts regarding recruiting and threw out the ones that obviously weren't for me and kept the ones that looked promising. As I was looking for a more casual guild, that part was easy. No "hardcore, 5 nights a week, must be 70 and highly geared" posts.After getting down to a few guilds that sounded like what I was looking for, I checked out their websites. That narrowed it down to only one guild. So even though I was putting in an application as a level 1, I went for it. Since I put the legwork in beforehand and picked a guild that had the same mindset as myself, the next night I was invited.So basically, take the time to go through the server forum, hunt down all the recruitment posts, find ones that sound like what you're looking for and fill out an application. PUGing is fine, but you don't really get a feel for the guild as a whole. By checking out their recruitment posts and website you can get, in my opinion, a much clearer picture of what type of guild it is you're looking at.
