For the Horde! Um, For Real This Time!

I’m getting a little antsy with my main, and a little bored with my alts. With the exception of one level 18 Undead Rogue, I have yet to really experience the Horde content. There’s a whole other game over there (so I’ve heard), and I’d love to see what the Bad Guys have in store for me.

So, there’s something I need from you lovely readers: what server should I join?

I ask this only because I don’t make friends very easily when I just drop into a new server; I like to have at least one or two ready-made buds to chat with while I grind up my levels. A kick-ass and friendly social guild might be nice, too. A few caveats: I know I’m going to play a Shaman (only class I have yet to try, even a little), I’m a somewhat busy person and thus casual player, and I get along with anybody who can put a sentence together.

Any suggestions? Anybody want to be my friend? Anybody want to make another alt and enjoy the other side with me?

Best Guild URL Ever!

As some folks may know I have a guild called We No. It’s the horde side sister guild of We Know. Anyway, We Know has a website which is basically a front page and a forum and wiki that we both share. That site is which confuses a lot of people who don’t know that websites don’t have to end in “.com” but that’s beside the point. The front of that page is very alliance. The main pages on the forum and wiki are very alliance. But a few levels down there’s crazy horde love going on. Of course this requires digging a few levels down for that and we were increasingly getting messages in game from people who went to our website “but it was just allinace stuff” so we decided we needed our own front page that was horde specific, and would then point to the same content as the We Know site. So we started looking for URL options. was almost picked and we decided on the simpler which seemed like a fantastic idea until I found out I needed to have all kinds of European tax ID info that, not being European, I didn’t have. So it was back to the drawing board. And then Sabocat, the greatest guildie in the history of URL thinking up guildies suggested the best thing ever: which I was almost not able to stop laughing long enough to buy moments later. And I fully expect “.org” to be the new WoW main TLD.

Dinging 60

"Ding 60" party

Making it to the supreme level of 60 is something every WoW player aspires (and after the expansion pack we’ll be dreaming of level 70). It’s such a special event that my guild, Lords of Honor, decided to celebrate it. A guild member and me have been questing a lot together and waited for both of us to be 1/2 a bar from 60. The guild then organized a raid, following a group of us two into Felwood. There, deep in the Jaedenar cave, we sought out an elite demon and slew it. A few adds later and we both dinged in succession with most of the guild watching from a distance and cheering us on. It was a great ding party and we plan to make it a custom for each member that gets to 60. We go wherever the soon-to-be-60 member wants to go and every guild member is invited, regardless of level. We even escorted two level 12s into the cave and they only suffered a few deaths. It was good fun and I hope to see it more often and not only in our guild. Dinging 60 means a culmination of hard work, of all the time you spent playing your toon, and probably all the broken RL relations…

Now that I’m 60, the loss of the XP bar kind of makes me feel empty…

Lonely hunter seeks guild for good time

noguild.jpg It was always our plan to start our own guild when a couple of friends and I rolled new toons. But it was never meant to be – for fun we joined one, didn’t like their play style, and then all quit at the same time. Today one of my buddies dropped out of WoW, and even considered deleting his characters. So now I’m alone, guildless, and frightened…. ok, maybe not frightened, but I do prefer playing with a good group of people.

So my question is this: how do you pick a guild to join? Do you join one, see if you like it, and then quit if you don’t? Do you wait for personal invites, or ask for recruitment in general chat? Go on the guild forums? I’ve had one good guild experience with my main, but I never play her anymore. That guild has since fallen apart (apparently the guild master decided his girlfriend was more important than WoW… *scoff*). Anyhow, how does everyone get their “guild on?”


I didn’t get a screenshot, but the humor highpoint of the day on Demon Soul was this message over chat:

“To whoever decided to report my guild name ‘Sapped Girls Can’t Say No’ as being offensive, thanks sooooo much, they’re forcing me to disband it.”

The guild name is a bit too much on the silly side in my mind to be construed as being truly offensive, but I don’t think anyone should be surprised that it was taken down. Of course, to echo an earlier post, This guild-disbanding is brought to you buy the makers of the “How Big is Your Sack?” T-shirt. This makes me want to start an experiment of starting questionably-named guilds and advertising recruitment, and seeing what gets through the filters.

Now forming: “Michael Jackson Day Care”. Only taking characters level 14 and lower.

I’ve always had a problem staying in guilds. It’s not that I’m particularly unfriendly or unhelpful; it’s just they seem to fall apart shortly after I join them.

My first guild fell apart quicker than a party lead by Stockwell Day [cbc], and the next one I found lasted not even a week before all the level 60s (and their alts) decided they’d be better off in an exclusive level 60 (and their alts) guild.
