Wow, I wish there were more guilds like this elsewhere! I used to raid heroic/hard modes in Wrath (especially Ulduar, ToC, and ICC), but I was in a 25 man guild that raided a lot. It was fine at the time, but now I'm working on a Masters degree, I'm married, and my husband and I train for marathons, so I just don't have time for that anymore. So, I'm currently in a casual raiding guild that raids two nights a week for 3-4 hours. But we are casual, so we don't do a lot of heroic modes. That's okay, but I do miss the challenge of the more difficult fights. I also put up with a lot of the "adult humour" (which really isn't that humorous) simply because I haven't been able to find a guild without it!I guess I'll have to go digging around in the guild recruitment forums and see if there are more guilds like this one out there - hopefully ones that need a shadow or disc priest!

Same situation I was in. There are definitely guilds out there that you'd be a good fit for. It's a game--don't settle for stuff that isnt enjoyable. You can also just post a thread with what you're looking for and a lot of guilds will respond.

Oatz, I think maybe you don't understand how rarely good the situation you have is. Now I'm not saying you take it for granted - far from it, you stated it took a year's worth of work to get it there. But while a lot of guilds might respond to a post like Caylynn's, is it going to be any better than her current guild?I actually remember the post Oatz referred to about the "casually hardcore" guild that down heroic lich king. I did a little digging around about that guild, and found that they are not quite the totally adult guild that one would think they are.Caylynn seems like she might be a fit for your guild, but not for many others, if she is looking to not have to put up with foul language and fart jokes. I've heard and seen a lot of guilds make this claim, but once you get in there, it's all drunken sailor, all the time.There was one guild I was in where there was a relative level of normalcy and a minimum of gay-bashing and foul language; I absolutely loved that guild and the people in it, unfortunately when cataclysm rolled around it was a situation where I had to move on from them, but that was by far the best guild I was ever in, despite not being as progressed with raiding as I would have liked. You said this above in response to legs:"Yeah, don't undervalue the friendliness part. No guild is worth it if the guild is full of pricks or elitists."I put a thumbs up on that because it's really true. If there is a guild that can match both the friendliness and the high-level progression skill, that's the golden standard right there - and there aren't a lot of guilds out there that are that high-quality.
