Daeva of War is a hardcore gaming community with active chapters in various games.
We ask a lot of our members. No less should you ask of us. For individuals with the drive to go above and beyond the call, wearing the Daeva of War tag is a privilege as much as it is a responsibility.
Within our Rift chapter we maintain a tight roster of raiders and plan to keep it that way. For raid encounters that are especially demanding on compositions, our members are required to have acquired all souls within their calling.
A desire for success. A common trait among all of us is our determination to win, we will go to any length to achieve success. The group is only as strong as the individual. If one person doesn't want it as bad as everyone else, the group will fail. You need to be in it for the guild, the tag represents greatness. This is not a casual club, nor are we a revolving doorway. We take this game seriously.
You shouldn't be in it for the loot. We will do cutting-edge content instead of farming old content. We will always choose a fight we haven't done instead of old encounters. We expect members to be looking out for what's best for the guild, not their character's gear. For example, if you are asked to sit on an encounter you want something off of, do it without complaint, don't start a drama fest because you want your purple pixels.
You are extremely well-versed with your class. You should know EVERYTHING about the class you play, including how to get every ounce of performance out of your character. You should know math. There are tiny nuances to every class that separate the good players from the great. We like our members to read up and know up-to-date information on their class and the game overall. If something changes in your class, you should be aware of how it changes your rotation, priority system, role and gearing choices. We only want the great. You should know you're a star, but you should be humble. Also, we expect that you will read up on fights before you see them, ESPECIALLY if it is your first time. We encourage you to ask questions, but we aren't here to cup your balls. All of these are signs of players that we are looking for.
Perfect play is often nearly impossible. However, we expect you to be maximizing your performance in every possible way. That means bringing consumables, knowing what's going on and how to avoid it, maximizing your damage/healing output, and generally bringing your A Game. It's okay to **** up once or twice, but admit that you ****** up, maybe mention to an officer the reasoning behind it, and don't let it happen again.
You need to be able to pay attention for long periods of time.
If we're developing a strategy or dividing assignments and you're not AFK or not listening, it's a recipe for disaster. If you get back and say, what? I was watching Six Feet Under, the complete collector's box set, you will be chewed out for your poor timing in watching the best series ever. We don't like repeating ourselves. In addition, you should be able to rationally identify specific details in different fights and be able to present these details to others.
If there is one thing that you need to make sure that you do, it's take responsibility for your actions. If you messed up on a fight, don't deny it. We don't like to hear excuses, e.g. my Six Feet Under DVD is skipping, and thus I stood in the dragons AOE. We expect you to take the criticism, change whatever you did wrong, and not let it happen again. This is another quality that separates the good players from the great.
Don't **** everyone off.
You should be able to blend with the rest of the guild. You should be patient. You should be mature. You should be calm. If you don't get your way, don't throw a fit. Don't be annoying. Don't fill our vent with stupid comments. If you aren't able to convey your thoughts in an intelligent and rational manner, we don't want you. You should not have any glaring mental neuroses.
Incorporating Yourself into the Guild. This is one that is not necessarily required, but is definitely recommended. Run 5-mans with guild members. Join up with people for Warfronts. Hang out on vent. We want to see recruits fit in with the guild.
It shows us that A) You're enjoying your time here and B) You are here to be part of a raiding team not just collect your nerd points and pixels.
These requirements are fairly basic; if you can't meet them you should reconsider your aspirations for joining Daeva of War. Our Website is http://dow.dreamaura.net/forums/index.php
