Paradigm Shift recruiting for Cataclysm and beyond

Paradigm Shift - Homepage (http://paradigmguild.wowstead.com)

With Cataclysm around the corner, Paradigm Shift is now recruiting exceptional raiders who are committed to hardcore raiding all endgame content that Cataclysm has to offer. We are looking for dedicated, skilled and knowledgeable players who play their class to perfection and who have the same ambitions and mindset as us.
Applying to us means your performance and experience will have to be on par with our current members. We expect the best from our players and the same applies to our recruits. If you don't have what it takes to play at this level, don't bother applying. You will just be wasting not only our time, but also yours.

When Cataclysm hits we will be focusing on leveling to 85 as soon as possible and start raiding (ideally) within a week. Our focus will be on server first progression. As we are a 10 man guild we encourage people to level alts as well if it can help the guild in terms of raid balance. Be aware that we require the same level of play from alts as we do from mains.

We require of you that you have in-depth knowledge of your class and that you use that knowledge to continuously improve yourself. Considering the skill level and experience of our members we also encourage you to make use of that experience and skill in order to be the best you can be. We are, however, not here to hold your hand.

We are also not interested in people who spam damage meters to flash their e-peen or who seem to be under the impression that playing selfishly to top the meters is regarded by us as skill.
What we want are reliable players who know their respective roles and who play that role to perfection.

Our raidtimes

Monday - 19.40 inv, start 20.00 untill 00.00
Wednesday - 19.40 inv, start 20.00 untill 00.00
Thursday - 19.40 inv, start 20.00 untill 00.00
Sunday - 19.40 inv, start 20.00 untill 00.00
With a small 10 minute break around 22.00 every raid.

We require 75% to 100% attendance from our members as we prefer a tight and close-knit guild that can rely on each other to show up and perform.

We use Ventrilo and actively using your microphone is highly encouraged.

We are currently scouting the following classes in preparation for raiding in Cataclysm:

Balance Druid
Disc/Holy Priest
Elemental/Resto Shaman
Holy/Prot Paladin
Prot Warrior

We will consider exceptional applications from all classes, so don't hesitate if you don't see your class/role listed.

What we expect of you

• Complete knowledge of your class, how to gear and spec it. This means being able to adapt to new situations and goes beyond just reading theory crafting and knowing what the right gems are. It's something that we expect people to have put a lot of thought into so their character can be the best it can be.

• Top-notch raid performance goes without saying. This means you must be experienced in high-end raid content and able to play your class to perfection. People who repeatedly die to the same mistakes and perform sub-par compared to the rest of the guild will not last very long.

• Have a competitive nature both on a guild vs. guild level and an internal level. You will have to earn your raid spot and show that you are the best person for the job. You must be confident in what you are doing and want to show that you can do it better than anyone else.

• General whining is not tolerated at all. If your main focus is loot or you can’t handle sitting out of raids sometimes, then this is not the right guild for you. Sometimes certain compositions will be better and you simply won’t get a spot. We expect you to play for the guild and its progress above all else.

• You must be fluent in English, both written and spoken. You must also have a microphone and Ventrilo and not be afraid to use it when required.

• You must be able to take criticism and improve from it. You will make mistakes, everyone does. It's important that you will learn from them, not make them again and respect the criticism you take.

• Have a fully working and reliable computer and internet connection. (Unstable hardware makes god kill a puppy)
