Note: All times mentioned below are EST (Eastern Standard Time).
vodka is a top tier raiding guild with exceptionally high expectations of itself. We have a proven track record for excellence and expect to be better than we ever have been in the upcoming content patches. Please keep in mind that vodka is a hardcore raiding guild. What this means is that we expect applicants as well as members to always come prepared with consumables, repair money, a good attitude, and a very high raid attendance. You will have to perform, accept criticism, and show initiative in improving on any of your weaknesses—whether it be DPS, healing output, or a particular encounter.
All times are server/EST
Sunday-Friday: 7pm to 1am
**Note: We will push a 7 day raid schedule with new content being released. You must be able to have atttendence on all raid nights should the schedule change.
The following list of expectations are what we're looking for from every single raider who is a part of vodka. All of these expectations apply equally to applicants and members unless specifically stated.
•You should be capable of maintaining near perfect (if not perfect) raid attendance, especially during your application process. This also applies to raiders who have already been promoted to member status.
•You are expected to be listening and fully attentive when assignments are given out for each encounter. You should never need to be told what to do more than once, and if you do, you're wasting our time.
•You are expected to perform your absolute best at all times. You should be giving us a run for our money, showing us how much you want to be here, and what you bring to the table. We will be watching.
•You should not be making mistakes during boss encounters, and you should definitely not be making them repeatedly. If you are making mistakes, that is a big problem for you. You should not be taking your personal mistakes with a grain of salt either, because we certainly will not be.
•As an applicant, we do not owe you anything. You are here to impress us and prove to us that you are the cream of the crop, not the other way around. We will not drag you through our raids until we see improvement, so make sure you're rock solid from the very beginning.
•As a member of vodka, you should be putting forth the same amount of effort and dedication that you did as an applicant. This means no goofing off or acting stupid during raids. You should be setting an example for all of our applicants.
This next bit of information applies mainly to applicants, but should not be overlooked by members.
All applicants will be heavily monitored throughout their application process and will also be given individual progress reports every one to two weeks to inform them of how they are doing throughout their application period. This should help to point out any flaws with the applicant that they should actively be working on fixing as soon as possible, and to also prevent the applicant from feeling completely blindsided if they are asked to leave the guild after their application period has ended.
Members will also be actively reviewed and in the event that any major issues come up they will be discussed. Whether it be your attentiveness in raids, your overall skill during encounters, your raid attendance, or a number of other things that we expect from you. If we feel it is a serious problem you will be approached about it and made aware that it is unacceptable and needs to be fixed quickly or you may find yourself without a raid spot with us.
REMEMBER: YOUR RAID SPOT WILL ALWAYS BE COMPETITIVE. YOU SHOULD NEVER TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.
Expect to be updated and modified as needed. Last update: 6/27/09
Now, if you're still reading, then maybe vodka is the place for you. Please fill out the application with care. After all, if you can't take the time to read what we ask of you here, how will you follow raid instructions!
In order to apply, go to the Application Thread, copy and paste the application into a Private Message to Laynd. Your application can only be seen by vodka members and any questions regarding it will be PM'd to you (CHECK BACK OFTEN). If you have any questions regarding applications or the guild, you can PM Nikita on these forums, or message them in game.
Thank you for your interest and good luck.
