    "From that moment, we traveled together, East. Always... into the East." Our name is derived from a quote of Marius (Diablo II); we are always pushing forward, regardless of the opposition that looms over us.

    ABOUT US:

    Hello and thank you for reading this post! We are <Always East>; a group of like-minded members who are looking forward to the release of Classic WoW in the Summer 2019. Our members consist of players spanning throughout all expansions of WoW, with several having experience throughout Vanilla's MC, BWL, ZG, AQ20/40 and Naxxramas raids when they were current content. Reliving the glory days of Vanilla WoW by participating in the grand adventure set before us as PvE raiders and PvP enthusiasts sets our hearts ablaze. Needless to say, we are die-hard fans of Vanilla WoW.

    We are currently looking to expand our roster with those who want to have an enjoyable and lively experience in the future release of Classic, all while being respectful to all those around us. Above all else, our members strive to live by the motto of Bill and Ted at all times: "Be excellent to each other!!" Here are some of the basics of <Always East>:

    WHAT IS OUR GOAL IN CLASSIC?

    • While our main goal is to be efficiently and effectively clearing bosses in raids, our goal at the start of Classic will be to build up our characters, be it through questing, mob grinding, dungeons, whatever! At the same time, we want to focus on building up our trust in our members and identifying who can perform specific roles when the time comes for us to jump into our first raid.

    • After the leveling process has come to an end, we are looking to jump into the high-end dungeon scene and gear ourselves up for the Molten Core raid.

    • That's when we'll begin our journey into MC, BWL, etc. as they crop up. Being experienced with the fights isn't required, but we strive not to waste others' time with lengthy explanations or continuous raid wipes to the same mechanic. Please understand your role and have an understanding of each encounter (read up, watch a video, ask questions).

    • Overall, having a good time with good people! We want signing on to be a fun experience and not a stressful one!

    WHAT IS EXPECTED?

    • As a PvE raider: Be knowledgeable of your class and have the desire to improve yourself - whether that be through the acquisition of gear, perfecting your rotation or increasing your attention to mechanics. Try to put the raid before yourself.

    • As a PvPer: Have the desire to coordinate with other members, and have a good time!

    • As a Social: Be kind and courteous in guild chat, make friends, have fun and be excellent!

    WHAT IS THE RAID SCHEDULE?

    • We will be raiding twice a week; Wednesday and Thursday.

    • Raiding will START (meaning the first pull of the night - NOT when you need to sign in to be invited) no later than 8:15PM EST.

    • Raid will have a 10 MINUTE BREAK around 10:00PM EST for raiders to get up, stretch, get a drink of water, use the restroom, etc.

    • Raid will END no later than 11:45PM EST.

    • It cannot be stressed enough: "Don't waste our time, and we won't waste yours." Be READY to raid when the time comes.

    OTHER FAQ's:

    Q: Do you accept social players that may not be able to raid?

    A: Very much so! We aim to make this a family friendly guild, but at the same time progressing firmly in the PvE content of Classic.

    Q: What other plans do you have for Classic besides raiding?

    A: Our members have already been discussing this. Ideas include, but are not limited to: fishing contests, 1v1/2v2/5v5 duels, hide-n-seek in Ironforge, Quiz Time in guild chat, World PvP and taking over a horde town, screenshot contests, costume contests, guild farm groups, weekly lottery, rat races, treasure hunts, and more! All with prizes that benefit the players as well as the guild.

    Q: How many members do you have?

    A: As of the time of writing this up, we have 115 members.

    Q: Are you using Loot Council or some other form of looting?

    A: We will be using EPGP in conjunction with ranking priority (if you show up and perform well for 95% of the raids, you are rewarded with the "Zealot" rank which has priority when it comes to loot over the "Member" rank.) We will not be using Loot Council, other than the fact that Thunderfury will be going to the main tank.

    Our goal of this guild is to have a place they can call their “second home,” away from the real life stresses we all face. A place where a group of like-minded individuals can hone in on a goal for a couple of hours a day and make huge progress. We've taken our years of experience from leading prior guilds and poured everything that was effective into Always East. Please reach out via a direct message through the reddit forums, or message one of our officers up on Discord (Parker#1471, Tharkun#4460, Kegg#8900 or Vexlander#9572 ) to chat more. We look forward to hearing from you!
