Additionally, we keep a log of exceptional applications that are good but not quite good enough to try to squeeze them into the roster; we'll get in touch with them when a spot opens up for them.
This means that a lot of the time we are recruiting, "any exceptional player". We wanted to write a bit about what that means so that you don't waste your time or ours with an application that is very likely to be denied.
A large majority of our trials have one or more of the following attributes:
- Former top-100 (top-50 or better preferred) guild experience (and quite a few from even more competitive guilds)
- Standout logs that demonstrate excellent damage avoidance, high dps/healing numbers, excellent use of cooldowns, and an understanding of their class mechanics
- A personal endorsement from a current or respected former raider with the guild
- A notable contribution to the raiding community - bloggers, theorycrafters, etc
All this, of course, is to protect and encourage a truly great raiding experience, with great players achieving incredible progression on only 2 nights a week.
