Casual Friday Area-52 [H] Stormrage [A], a casual WoW guild and community.

Have you been looking for a guild or community that actually enjoys logging in to do content? Are you jaded by guilds that constantly think the answer to all their woes is to push into mythic raiding? Do you wish people could just get along with each other and not be terrible human beings? Do you want a space where you can be yourself in a non-toxic environment?

Then congratulations! By clicking this post, you’ve taken the first step towards improving your enjoyment in World of Warcraft!


What is Casual Friday?

Casual Friday is a casual WoW community and guild built around group PvE content. Our leaders, Hayword (Discord: Hayword#2674, RealID/BattleTag: Hayword#1905) and Jivitz (Discord: Jivitz#8097, RealID/BattleTag: Jivitz#1255), have roughly a combined 87 years of experience leading groups and guilds in WoW. While we both have deep Mythic raiding experience, we have zero intent to push into Mythic raiding with Casual Friday.

Pursuing Mythic raiding was part of the demise of the last guild we ran and several guilds we joined since then. Seeing other guilds fall victim to it like we did has been a painful experience in our play-time through Battle for Azeroth and Shadowlands. We just want to play the game and not take it too seriously, but every guild we join seems to think Mythic raiding is the best path forward. Sure, our members have more orange parses than we can shake a stick at, but at the end of the day we just want to be able to log in a few times a week and cobble together a group that does stuff.

The best part of our group is that we have no expectations for your attendance. Most of our members are in their 30s, so you can expect gaming sometimes takes a back seat to life. We only ask that you be a not-so-terrible human being and let us know if you will not be in attendance or are running late.


What is Casual Friday trying to do? And what the heck are they looking for?

Our goal is to complete heroic content while raiding one night a week. We have begun raiding over the last few weeks and are making good progress through normal Sepulcher of the First Ones. You might say to yourself “Gee, SotFO has been around for weeks, months even! Why are you just now getting through normal?!” I’m so glad you asked. See, many of us here in the guild are returning to WoW with a fresh breath of what our expectations should be. Many of us re-rolled to a better life horde on Area 52 to do so. We spun up our recruitment apes guild officers to see if anyone out there was like us. Thus, we only just started raiding the latest content a few weeks ago. Meanwhile, we have also been having a blast in Mythic+, where we regularly have people doing keys ranging from +15 to +20. We also love making time for new characters or members and regularly do keys of any level.

We are looking for more warm bodies willing participants keyboard facerollers active members to fill out our groups. As with any guild with a casual approach, attendance can feel like a revolving door. The best members are those that are flexible and can play multiple roles, but most importantly play what you will have the most fun on. That said, we would love more of the following:

  1. Tanks of any variety

  2. Warriors of any variety, but if you are of #1’s variety, you just killed two seagulls with one scone!

  3. Priests of any variety

  4. Demon Hunters of any variety, but especially those that go pew pew

  5. Death Knights of any variety, but if you are of #1’s variety, you just got a grip on my heartstrike!

  6. Monks of any variety


I’ve read enough! How do I join?!

So you’ve read the post and think Casual Friday is too good to be true, or you’re just a glutton for long-winded punishment. You can follow these simple steps to success:

  1. Join our Discord by going to http://discord.gg/GAVGYPPRgX

  2. Read and accept our rules, which are pretty good guidelines to not being terrible human beings.

  3. Go to the #roles channel to choose your roles, color your Discord name, and click the Thumbs-Up Emoji for access to the rest of the server.

  4. Once you have access, introduce yourself in the #welcome channel and post one of your favorite gifs.

  5. Join the WoW community posted in Discord and, if on Horde on Area-52 or Alliance on Stormrage, join the Casual Friday guild. Anyone can invite.

  6. Remember that the community is what you make it, so participation is key. Going through the trouble of reading this post, following all of our instructions, and then not participating in the conversation is not good for anyone.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Hayword or Jivitz at any of the contact methods listed above.
