<Vivid> is a PvE guild on the EU server Shadowsong. We are a guild dedicated to 10 man raiding; as such we seek to maintain a tight roster to ensure a strong raiding team and to avoid having to ask people to constantly sit out. We intend to maintain a high level of progression while providing and maintaining a fun, social environment within the guild.

Mission Statement:
As a guild we are looking to build a raiding squad with the optimum setup that we can attain for 10 man raiding. We work hard to ensure that all guild members have a good knowledge of their class at 85 and that we are all ready to face any content that comes our way. That said, you will not be getting a free ride and we expect you to pull your weight. We seek to avoid having a guild where people log on for raids and purples and then log off – such an atmosphere where loot comes first does not foster a good social atmosphere which is what we seek to maintain. That is not to say that we want you to be online at all times, but we require a certain commitment from you as a member. A guild is a team effort, not a one-man job.

What we require from our (future) raiders:
1. Applicants must be 18+. This is to ensure that everyone within the guild has complete control over their gametime and the maturity to deal with any constructive criticism.
2. Attendance must be high enough to maintain our raiding schedule. Three raids a week is not too much to ask in my opinion. We have full understanding for real life sometimes throwing a wrench in the works, but if it happens repeatedly it will be an issue.
3. We require a certain amount of your time to socialise within the guild, and want to discourage activities such as raid logging.
4. Fluid Performance - How you mold your DPS (or HPS) strategy around the niches of an encounter determines how much you can maximize your output. People who can adapt to every encounter, new or old, on the turn of a dime, are the people we want.
5. Perfect Awareness - Maximum performance is definitely necessary, but we aren't interested in people who tunnel vision their Recount or raid frames. We want players who can adapt quickly and effectively against raid encounters while maximizing their output.
6. Learning Attitude - We aren't looking for ignorant and arrogant individuals. It's very rare to find somebody who is perfect at everything they do. We're not saying we don't condone ignorance or arrogance, but in a raid environment, especially during progression, people must be open to criticism and correction of their personal strategy against an encounter. We are looking for people who don't have crutches (like the need to to be called out on vent) or even a bar timer, we want people who can hold themselves up.
7. Show of Intelligence - This is the last and the most important trait we look for in potential applicants. You must be able to think on your feet. You should also be able to produce and analyze your own theorycrafts. We do not desire people that can simply follow existing EJ threads. In addition, we encourage players to explore their class's potential to the max and challenge the current accepted norms.

What can you expect from us?
1. High quality raids. Our raids have 1 break, around 22.30. Our members are prepared and we have as minimal downtime as possible. When raiding we're using Ventrilo and it contains a lot of humor. It's not always so serious!
2. A tight social community. We not only have people who raid, we also have social members. These members can't dedicate them self to join 3 times a raid but are willing to help during the times we may need certain classes / players.
3. A friendly place to have fun outside of raids. Our members hang out on Skype, Ventrilo outside of raiding hours. We have some alts running runs with a friendly guild on Friday and Saturday. This gives you the opportunity to gear up an alt if you so please. We also organize runs for Zul'Aman bears for people who want them.

Raiding Schedule:
Wednesday - 20:30 - 24:00
Sunday - 20:30 - 24:00
Monday - 20:30 - 24:00

Recruitment
Due to changes upcoming in the summer, we are looking for some additional members to complete our roster. A couple of our members have lower or no attendance during summer, therefore we are looking for people to fill in these spots. Please note that this doesn't mean that these spots are for the summer only. We are not recruiting people to let them sit out, night after night. You will be taken to raids to allow us to see you in action and based on that we will see, we'll make our decision on your trial status. After that, you are a full member and will be treated as such.

Currently looking for:
Blood Death Knight
Protection Warrior
Feral (tank) Druid

Other classes will be considered, however the application and the player must be of high quality


You can apply via our website www.vivid-guild.com (http://www.vivid-guild.com/) (go into the forums and then into "Guild information and applications) or whisper any officer in game. If we're playing our alts, our members will direct you to them.
