Daybreak is Recruiting!

Dear Readers,

With Cataclysm just one weeks away, I am steering content away from kitty goodness for a brief moment to make a recruitment plug for my guild. Daybreak has been my home for nearly 5 years now and will continue to be so until the day that I stop playing WoW. It is by far one of the most compelling aspects of WoW that keep me engaged in this game due to the fact that the folks in this guild are fantastic people that I have played with for years and years. We continue to be a strong and healthy guild due to our like minded ideals on what we feel is success and enjoyment in WoW. We are not in any way shape or form in need of players but instead we are looking for like minded people that have like minded goals.

So, if you are in the market for a new home, I encourage you to read through the remainder of this post:

Daybreak is Recruiting!

Core Details

Realm: Auchindoun
Battlegroup: Retaliation
Data Center Location: New York
Time Zone: EST


Daybreak is an Alliance guild on Auchindoun-US PVP server of older mature players who have played since the release of Vanilla WoW in 2004. Majority of our core have been playing & raiding together since Molten Core and continue to because of our passion for WoW and the family we have become. Originally from Warsong-US, we moved in Aug 09 to Auchindoun-US where we have since maintained a reputation of being one of the premier guilds on the server. While we are primarily a 25 man raiding guild, we are more than just a guild that logs on for raid nights. We have a strong passion for achievements and on any given night will find folks working on some obscure achievement or farming old content for rare mounts & legendaries

About Daybreak

“It’s more important to play with friends & family, than it is to play for epics”

We are not a guild that prides ourselves on world firsts or server firsts. We pride ourselves in our ability to complete content in a shortened and light raid schedule which does result in many Server Firsts. We will never push beyond our raid schedules, nor will we jeopardize our guild health for epics or Server Firsts. A prime example of this is our decision to skip HLK and HHalion to ensure we went into Cataclysm with minimal attrition and a strong raiding core.

“We love Nerd Points, seriously.”

We are a guild that absolutely loves achievements. We do them while progressing through content and we go back and do them in our spare time as well. We probably as a guild spend more time doing achievement activities than raiding itself. With the imminent arrival of Cataclysm, we have completed 98% (264/269) of all WOTLK raid achievements, most of which have been done numerous times. With the onset of Guild Achievements in the upcoming expansion, rest assured that there will be heavy focus on this as well as personal achievements.

“Respect the guild and respect each other”

Respect each other by being part of the the guild not just a raid. Whether it be helping with achievements, lvling alts, doing old content or just socializing in guild chat. We are must more than just an avenue for purples. Respect the raid by always ensuring you are here when you can and if you can’t, respect the guild by posting and providing awareness that you are not available. We are an older guild and we understand that real life sometimes supersedes WoW and we have no issues with that, as long as we know ahead of time.

Daybreak Logistics

We run on a 3 day raid schedule which consists of Tues, Wed and Thurs from 7-12pm EST and we handle loot distribution through loot council.

Applying to Daybreak

If you’ve read through this and what you’ve read lines up with what you feel is enjoyment in WoW, then I encourage you to give us some consideration. Regardless of what class or spec you are, what experience you’ve previously had. We are looking for like minded individuals. Cataclysm is a restart for everyone and is the perfect opportunity to explore new avenues to enjoy WoW. If you’d like to hear more or have questions, feel free to jump onto Auchindoun and give me a shout. To start your application process, jump to our forums here:

We Are Legendary, a shot of the various Legendaries within the Daybreak.

A shot of our Mimiron Head Army, an optional raid that was run weekly with the objective of obtaining a Mimiron Head for everyone.

It isn't always all about purples and nerd points, we take time to give back to the Auchindoun community (Gordok Ogre Suit Ogrimmar Raid)

    I’d love to be in such a guild, if it weren’t for the fact that you’re on a PvP server. After dealing with Stormscale I can’t be on a server where I am unable to just relax in the world and not have to constantly be aware.

    Wow it’s pretty amazing you guys accomplish so much on a 3 day raid schedule, most hardcore guilds on kil’jaeden run a 4-5 day schedule! /cheer 🙂

    I’m just a tiny bit unsure about your Raid Attendance Policy.

    Here in your comment above you mention that:

    “Respect the raid by always ensuring you are here when you can and if you can’t, respect the guild by posting and providing awareness that you are not available. We are an older guild and we understand that real life sometimes supersedes WoW and we have no issues with that, as long as we know ahead of time.”

    But, when looking over the application questions on your guild site it is mentionned that:

    Raiding Schedule

    We raid on a 3 day schedule, Tues/Wed/Thurs from 7-12pm. We believe that content does not require an intensive raid schedule nor do we want to raid that much as everyone’s time is valuable in and outside of game. With a short raid week, we expect near flawless attendance, missing raids is not tolerated or acceptable.


    9. Do you understand that missing raids is not tolerated and will result in failure of trial/removal from guild


    I am wondering if you can clarify on that specific point? I am interested in applying, but I know that my schedule doesn’t mesh perfectly with that raiding schedule. (I would probably end up being able to attend raids only 2/3rd of the time).

    That’s because we haven’t updated our website with the same information yet. We’re taking a slightly different stance come Cataclysm than we did in WOTLK.

    Best bet though is to pst me in game and we can have a long chat to answer any potential questions you may have.

    Had a good laugh at this point…”We love Nerd Points, seriously.” Been banging away at getting achievements prior to Cataclysm myself. Best of luck with the membership drive and have a good time on Dec. 7th!

    Hi, I do think this is a great website. I stumbledupon it 😉 I will revisit yet again since
    i have saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the best way
    to change, may you be rich and continue to help others.

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a
    quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
