If you're here because you’re interested in becoming a member of the Order of the Ebon Shield, here are a few things you’ll want to know.
• Yes, we are recruiting active players of legal age, with characters of any class, skill or experience level.
• We set high standards for our members. That we’ve made it pretty easy to join the guild does not reflect a lowering of those standards. It just means that we’re giving you an opportunity to test drive the guild and for us to get to know you before either of us makes a decision.
• Put your best foot forward on your application. Spelling, grammar, and post content say a lot about a person, though they aren't deal-breakers.
• Yes, we do seem to have a lot of rules but most of them can be summarized as don’t be a jerk. We post them all because we feel that making our expectations clear reduces the odds anyone will find themselves having an uncomfortable private conversation with an officer or the guild leader. And yes, people really do create characters just to tattle on someone being a jerk in LFR.
• If your character is lower level we may not be able to supply much in the way of a questing or dungeoning buddy. The majority of our current members have been playing for many years; we’re simply out of low level characters and the slots to make more. We do have a wealth of knowledge about the game we’re more than happy to share so don’t hesitate to ask.
Raiding and the OES.
Yes, we do have a raid group (that is currently on hiatus) and historically it’s a pretty good one.
This does NOT mean that you need to look elsewhere if you want to raid, it simply means that at this stage of the expansion we do not have an active raid group - but that can change.
