Completely Different is a guild that runs hardcore, progression focused raids on a relatively casual three day schedule while choosing not to put up with elitists players or pricks simply because they can put up good numbers. We find that valuing the personality of our members as highly as we do their performance leads to more enjoyable raids and less burnout over the ebb and flow of progression.Why are we Recruiting?:
Currently about 5 of our raid slots are filled by about 10 skilled individuals who are unable to make enough raids regularly to be core raiders. Part of being an extremely efficient guild is running with almost the exact same people every night of the week and as such we are hoping to fill those spots with equally skilled individuals who can make near 100% attendance.What is our target Player Base?:
I have been playing WoW for a little over 3 years now, and while I had the time in College to raid nonstop, Real Life has snuck up on me and all of a sudden, I have these things called responsibilities. Unfortunately, I could not settle for a casual guild, so I found Completely Different to be made up of people who are driven to a hardcore raiding environment but are lacking the free time to commit to a traditional progression guild.
As an individual you must be an excellent player and an extremely quick learner. With a 12 hour raid week we can't afford players who take more than an attempt or two at most to fully understand an encounter. Ideally you are able to form an accurate picture of an encounter from data mined abilities and PTR testing, thus allowing you to step into the live encounter with very few mistakes.
Our GM is not a slave driver and rarely raises his voice, but this is a progression guild. If you are someone who becomes a head case on the rare occasion you do make a mistake and it is pointed out in vent then this is not the guild for you. Raiders are required to understand, analyze and fix any errors that are made. Once this process is complete you must be able to compartmentalize that mistake and prevent it from affecting your future performance.
The last requirement people often think about is actually one of the most important. While we expect and demand exemplary performance of our raiders you will never see us bashing a “fail pug” in a heroic or sitting in trade chat making fun of those who take this game less seriously than we do. That is not what this guild is about and if it's the kind of behavior you exhibit or for some twisted reason, enjoy, then we are not the right home for you. There is a distinct difference between knowing you are a good player and wanting others to know you are a good player. If you choose to join us please check the egos at the door and leave your elitist attitude at the coat check.What should I do?:
If you feel you fit the bill of what we're looking for and you are excited to be a part of what we do then your first step is to head to our website and, after reading our policies and rules, fill out an application. I can't stress how important this application is to your chances of getting accepted to our guild. At most one out of every ten apps are contacted for a vent interview and if you wish to make it past that first stage you must be able to represent yourself well on paper. Absolutely essential to this is the ability to provide us with some WoL, WWS, or WMO parses to look through. A screen shot of your recount, while nice, does not allow us to go through and look at things like your survivability, up times, avoidable damage taken etc.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to contact us in game or email our GM, Shaidar, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Best of luck to you on your applications, and I hope to see you soon!

I have updated our guild's recruitment needs to highlight our interest in recruiting a few more ranged DPSers, and about 3-4 healers. Our current healers cannot make the time commitments associated with end-game raiding anymore due to young families.
Please visit us at http://cd.vitalstuff.org
for more information or to fill out an application. Hope to hear from you soon!
