What kind of guild are you?

This week’s Shared Topic over at Blog Azeroth was suggested to us by Dragonray over at Azerothian Life.

What kind of guild environment do you like?

From this I am referring to whether you like a quiet guild or a chatty guild – is there a happy medium? I have noticed that the guild I have joined never says anything in guild chat and you really have to push them to chat?

See, for me being in a guild is an important part of my WoW experience. I realise that there are players out there who are happy to play solo and not raid, and I think everyone should play the way that works for them.

For me, I need to be in a guild because I hate pugging and I enjoy being able to grab people and do a Heroic.

So, what kind of guild do I want?

I want a raiding guild of course, but I also like the guild to be somewhat friendly and chatty. If I’m just hanging around in Stormwind or farming herbs/ores it’s nice to be able to chat to other people in the guild.

Other times I’ll admit that I focus on what I’m doing and I may not be so chatty. I spend quite a bit of time on Ventrilo and so I sometimes chat even while doing things that may not allow me to keep trach of the guild chat in game.

I like to be able to have fun with my guildies, but buckle up and play properly when we need to during raids. It’s important to me that it’s a mixture of fun and serious raiding – I don’t think I could deal with being too serious or too relaxed.

What kind of guild suits you best?

  1. We are a 10 man raiding guild, and we like to propose us as semihardcore.

    We are very focus on progression (and I think that our result are decent to be a late night raiding guild.But this is offtopic. The atmoshere is very diffirent between raiding night and not raiding night, when we raid usually we are almost all in the Fireland so our discussion/chat is in the /raid channel and chat is doable only during the time between wipe :P

    During the weekend, when we don’t raid, chat is silent or full of joke depending who is in the guild at a specific time. To be honest we are 8/15 players online usually at that time so we are very few.

    And relating of behavior ppl like to play solo going for achivemnt or hc run. Sometime with guild but more often via pug (it’s very hard with few ppl making a not planned hc run)

    So if you want to tag our giuld i think that we can set it as relaxed.

    • My guild is also fairly small since we’re a 10 man as well. When we’re all raiding there’s never more than 1-3 people outside the raid in the guild chat, so it tends to get fairly quiet there :)
