As many of you are aware, Mists of Pandaria has been a difficult expansion for us. We've seen a lot of faces come and go, both veteran members and newer recruits. And despite this, we've continued on.
While we are very proud of our accomplishments with our time spent playing the expansion and have had a great deal of fun along the way, we've come to feel that the imminent reality of our situation simply does not support moving forward with raiding at this time. With this said, both Anzari and I have decided to take a break from World of Warcraft entirely until the Warlords of Draenor expansion and focus on other things until then.
We're both happy with our progression within Siege of Orgrimmar. I've personally loved raiding alongside many of you (and would like to again down the road). No one has done anything wrong or pushed us to make this decision. We're both just at the point where the day-to-day demands of real-life have reduced our available playtime to an all-time low and disallowed us to properly invest ourselves to help ensure we're meeting the expectations of everyone in KA.
For myself, I'm in the final stretch of my experiential which is sapping my time and energy and I often haven't even felt like logging in lately. This is, in part, due to my home, school and work balance but also in part due to simply being bored with Warcraft (to be frank). My subscription is set to expire on Monday (February 24th) and I've decided to let it run out. I cannot speak for Anzari. He may continue to play in some limited capacity, leveling alts or something but I'm not sure. Regardless, I'm sure he will let you all know soon.
I have always been a huge supporter of doing what you want to do in the game and most importantly, making sure you're having fun. That said, you all need to do what you need to do to ensure your enjoyment from the game! If this means finding a new home, we understand and support your decision fully.
Do please keep in mind however, this is not the end! We're not dead, disbanding the guild or anything like that. We will be back full-force for Warlords of Draenor and very much hope to see you all there. I'm looking forward to the new expansion as well as raiding alongside of you all!
<KA> has existed since the end of Wrath, originating on Cairne prior to its transfer to Zul'jin in MoP. We currently run a 10-person raiding group focused on clearing content within a very tight schedule. Most of our guild members have very busy lives, and we think that this focus is a big advantage for us.
In February, we are looking to rebuild the guild as a 25-Man team, in anticipation of Mythic (20-Man) progression in Warlords of Draenor.
Code of Conduct
We are working hard to build up a reputation as a respectful, mature, and drama-free guild. As such, we have zero tolerance for offensive comments, trolling in /trade, or any other behaviour that will reflect negatively on our guild.
To become a member of <KA> create a Guild Launch account and apply on the forums. Players will go through a trial period at the end of which the officers will decide on full membership. We are currently only accepting guild applicants that are age 18 or older.
<KA> raids three nights a week for two hours per night. Raid attendance will never be mandatory as real life always comes first. Raid signups are first-come-first-serve except for some progression content that requires min/maxing specific roles or classes. We have extremely reasonable raiding requirements which include having decent gear, gems, and enchants.
* All times shown are Eastern (Server Time).
In Cataclysm we fully cleared all T11, T12, and T13 normal modes, and some heroic modes prior to the nerfs. In WOTLK we completed most Naxx, Ulduar, ToC, and ICC achievements, finishing all of the Ulduar hard modes, and getting within 8% of a Heroic Lich King kill.
So far in Mists of Pandaria, we are 14/14N for T14, 4/13H for T15 and 3/14H for T16.
Officers: Anzari, Opheliac/Vaerisara
<KA> is a new guild focusing on putting together a friendly group of people that intend to stick around through the rest of WOTLK, and into Cataclysm. We are looking to start up a raid group focusing on finishing the Lich King, and then working on TOGC and Ulduar 10 achievements.
[b][color=orange]Code of Conduct[/color][/b]
Players must conduct themselves in a mature and respectful manner. Offensive comments, unnecessary swearing, and inappropriate language of any nature will NOT be tolerated. While we encourage guild members to express themselves freely in Trade Chat or on the Realm Forum, do remember that we are working hard to build up a good reputation as a mature and drama-free guild. As such, any comments that cross the line into trolling or any other negative behaviour that makes the guild look bad, will be dealt with with a "Zero Tolerance" policy.
To become a member of <KA> create a Guild Launch account and apply on the forums. Players will go through a trial period at the end of which the officers will decide on full membership.
<KA> will be raiding two nights a week for two hours per night. Based on the current roster, we have narrowed down our days and times to Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays for two hours sometime between 8pm and 11pm Server Time (7PM MST and 10PM MST). The times will likely be somewhat flexible, and attendance will never be mandatory as real life always comes first. However, in the interest of putting together a consistent group, we are looking for players who expect to be available on a fairly regular basis.
For now the guild will be organized around raiding, with three Guild Officers including the guild leader. Once we start to move past the WOTLK raiding and recruit more actively, the officer ranks and roles will be expanded.
