I am by no means an authority on the subject, but I do speak with over a decade of experience managing my own guild and thereby its recruitment.
Whether you apply to Sacrifice or any of the other extremely talented guilds on Mannoroth or any other server, please do yourselves a favor (in no particular order).
- Do not submit garbage links when prompted for World of Logs or any other pertinent URL/link. This shows a lack of respect for the process, or a complete ignorance to their value and in both cases is an immediate indicator to anyone making a decision that you are not worth even talking to.
- Do not boast about your mad PvP skillz on an application to a PvE guild unless you are Swifty. Until then nobody gives a singular fuck that you did some leet arena PvP, bro.
- Do not blame your lack of raiding experience on your inability to find a "good group." That's like blaming your virginity on being unable to find a good girl.
- Don't "forget" or ignore previous guilds if/when the guild you're applying to asks for your guild history. Most guilds will look through your transfer history, and wowprogress, and countless other websites and piece the puzzle together before giving you a legitimate look, and this is a red flag the size of Texas.
- Most guilds ask for your birthday or age because raiding with 13 year olds is tortuous. If you're 13, don't lie about it, just talk to an officer. Sometimes exceptions are made if you're mature enough and have the talent to back it up. If you lie about it, the first time you talk and Mom just happens to ask you if your homework is done in the background, you're gonna have a bad time.
- Most guilds I've seen and/or talked to ask for your computer specs. If you don't know what they are, or worse yet you don't know what that means, you're gonna have a bad time.
- If you answer #6 by saying you have a new DELL....
Siege of Orgrimmar is coming out shortly, and a lot of people are trying to get into raiding, or joining a new guild and if you want to have a crying chance at joining any self respecting guild, you'll want to respect the process.
