Greetings! We Were SOLDIERs is a semi-HC mythic raiding guild. We are located on the Stormreaver US server, Horde side. If you are a displaced raider, just coming back to BFA, or looking to get on a Heroic/Mythic raid roster we may be a good fit for you! We are an exceptionally good fit for veteran HC raiders who prefer to raid for fun in a relaxed environment rather than have WoW raids feel like another job.
Mythic Team Raid Times:
Thursday 8:00-11:00 EST
Sunday 7:30-11 EST
We are strictly 2 nights, however we have optional Raid nights:

Needs: These are all CORE positions!
Main Tank-Monk, DK, or Paladin ideal.
*FLEX HEALER-DPS 80% of the time and fill as a healer when a main heals has to miss raids. Shaman or Druid ideal.
*RANGED DPS-any exceptional DPS considered.
*FLEX TANK-DPS about 75% of the time and fill for tank.
We are a close knit group that started raiding over 10 years ago. Our goal as a guild has always been to see the content of each raid. We then generally strive to down all content on harder difficulties. Many of our members were former top 100 raiders and put up top parses and remain competitive. Due to a 2 night schedule we will not likely down everything on mythic in an expansion. We play games outside of WoW together as well (League of Legends, HOTS, SC2, Hearthstone, Diablo, etc)
About the GM:
The GM has been a top tier raider for years. Through Cata and MoP he was consistently a top 100 world healer who was in the #2 3 day/week guild US. He was an officer and raid leader during those times. He also worked with Blood Legion and subbed in with their PTR raids. He is very competent at breaking down raid mechanics and content. When we push harder difficulties we have the leadership to do it seamlessly.
Raid members submit a BiS list at the beginning of each raid tier. Players should trade any item not on their BiS list, when possible. Trial period typically lasts 1-3 weeks.
Many of us are in the age range of 21-35. We are all adults, as such we have an adult Discord Voice Server and interactions with each other. We push each other to do better and often make fun of one another in the process. If you are easily offended, need a safe space, or feel that you are a special snowflake; we are not the guild for you. If you can take some banter and dish it out then you will fit right in.
Anytime you have 10-30 people working together you will have issues. The difference between success and failure is how you resolve those conflicts. We are drama free. The way we stay that way is by resolving conflicts early.
We are looking for consistent raiders who can make our scheduled raid times 80+% of the time. We expect you to have read up on your class, know the raid encounter mechanics, and be able to perform your role well. We all will make mistakes but we ideally want raiders who learn quickly from them and adapt. If you make a mistake we will tell you how to fix it. Similarly, if you have some ideas to share you will be given time to do that. Ultimately, we are all here to have fun, make new friends, and down some digital bad guys. If you have read this far and are still interested feel free to contact me in game. my ID is listed below. We will consider all exceptional players and will take small groups as well. If you are looking for a casual, non-raid position you are also welcome in our guild.
