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!
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
“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.
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.
