If you have been reading my blog on a regular basis (not that I am posting regularly ….) then you maybe know a bit about my guild history; if not then Hello, my name is Maitreyi is the post I am talking about.
Today it will be again a recruitment post and not because I planned a series with it, but I want to show my consideration for the people that offered me a home, and not any home.
Horde will always have a special place in my heart. I still look with “love” at a taurean warrior… I don’t know, is just “silly girl thoughts” prolly, but I do like more how horde races looks like. Anyway, the guild I am talking about is Hive and even I left it I never stop talking with people from there because I discovered great persons that don’t deserve to be forgotten. When you find a good player/person/friend or how you want to call it you try to keep in touch with them even the circumstances won’t bring you closer than that.
With Hive I had my Immortal (plus all the other achievements) run and got my first drake from a meta achievement. There I evolved as a player and I must say that the environment, the raids, the way things have been handled made me feel good there, and, became an example for what I was searching after my attempt to rejoin my former guild MV failed.
If you are looking for a horde guild, on a PVE realm, in a very good battlegroup – Cyclone, then you should consider Hive.
Now, if I did got your interest, then have a look on the recruitment post made by Talsin (guild master) and Jorblax (officer) of Hive.
Hive was founded on the 15th Feb 2005 and is one of the oldest, most recognized guilds on Shadowsong EU. They have established themselves as one of the top guilds on the realm and their goal has always been to experience as much of the end-game content as is possibly attainable, while still successfully managing real-life responsibilities.
Hive has over 100+ active members from all walks of life, which makes them a diverse wonderful culture all on their own. Hive is always trying to achieve the perfect balance between raid progression and socializing and have been around for over 5 years doing exactly that.
Hive runs 2 different 25 man groups, one for primary progression and one for a little more relaxed approach to raiding, but both always strive to achieve the best they can do, in the limited amount they raid, which is Wed/Thur/Sun (20:30 – 00:00) and Thur/Sun/Mon (20:30 – 00:00) respectively. Hive also runs numerous 10man raids on “off nights” for those keen to raid more.
Some of Hive’s achievements include killing M’uru prenerf and achieving all WotLK meta-achievements up-to ICC. Their current progress is in ICC heroic is 3/12(25man) and 11/12(10man).
What classes are being recruited?
- Mage (!High Priority!)
- Balance Druid
- Holy Priest (Shadow offspec a bonus)
- Enhancement Shaman (Elemental offspec a bonus)
In addition, Hive will always consider exceptional applications.
How to apply to Hive
Hive is in the process of streamlining it’s recruitment process, but for now the easiet way is to post an application on their forums, and Jorblax asked pretty please to read the stickies before applying ;)
In conclusion, Hive has always maintained the belief that RL > WoW and this is echo’d in their policy of recruiting the player and not the pixel.
If you have any question about it and is easy to ask it here than talking with an officer then feel free to ask. If I am not capable to answer it then I will take care to have the answer of a Hive member.
I mention this because I usually like to have a chat with a member or ex member from a certain guild before taking a decision (not always in a recruitment post are all the information’s you need).
