Those of you who are regular readers have probably noticed that I haven’t been updating regularly. Some of it had to do with my decision to not cover each raid boss for the tier, some of it has had to do with things in WoW, and then there’s been a sprinkle of real life in the mix as well.

You’ll notice that my realm location has changed. You’ll notice that my guild tag has changed if you look at me via the Armory links.

And now let me explain why…

Let me welcome you to the unveiling of Enigma, a Horde raiding guild on Wyrmrest Accord.

What is Enigma? Enigma is the blood, sweat, and tears of a trio of players who are dedicated to the player and the ability to progress through WoW content. We are a guild of adults striving to enjoy all that WoW offers, whether it be raiding, dungeons, achievements, or pet battles.

Our Mission: To foster a tight-knit community and progress through current content two nights a week.

So why am I sharing this? Well, aside from letting readers know where I am now, I also want to open our doors to potential raiding applicants. We raid Tuesday and Wednesday from 6-9p server (9-midnight Eastern). The team is almost full, so there aren’t many spots available!

What we are looking for in a raider:

  • 18 years of age, or older
  • Thrives on challenge
  • Is patient
  • Is willing to listen to constructive critism
  • Show up to raid focused and ready to perform at their best
  • Will push themselves to improve each and every raid
  • Enjoys helping others
  • Has a good sense of humor
  • Is not easily offended
  • Is interested in doing things with guildmates (as opposed to joining just for the benefits)
  • Strives to avoid drama
  • Plays regularly

The details of raiding with Enigma can be found in our Raiding FAQ. Raid team applicants must accept everything outlined in the Raiding FAQ before they will be considered for a trial position. Each applicant will undergo an interview with the guild officers to determine fit.

In addition to accepting the raiding policy, all applicants to the guild must accept and adhere to the Guild Policies. Failure to follow the outlined rules will result in removal from the guild.

If you are interested in applying, please check out our Recruitment page for the application process.

Enigma in 5.2

As Blizzard just announced on Monday, February 11, 2013, patch 5.2 will be dropping by the end of the month.  We realize that only a small collection of members who currently make up the raid team will have enough gear to step into the Thunder King’s stronghold. With that in mind, the raid leaders have decided that the raid team will begin with, and progress through, the previously released content before stepping foot into Tier 15. This means that we will be starting in MSV, working through HoF, cleaning up in Terrace, and then evaluating our readiness for the new raid.

In Conclusion…

Another giant step that I have chosen to take, but one that has never felt more right. If you are looking for a home in WoW full of fun, active, and amusing players, drop us a note. If you’d like to give raiding a go in a solid group who likes to chatter during trash, take a moment to fill out an application. We’re currently looking for some strong DPS, but any class/role is welcome to apply.

Thanks for being here to take this next step with me and my friends, and I will try my damnedest to turn out some more content on…content and on guild leadership in the near future!

–Miri
