Chewtoy has asked me to help with recruiting, and I can think of no better recruitment tool than an image montage of the raiding principles and cohesive atmosphere of High Five. There are probably better ideas, but we had a limited production budget and a healthy dose of extreme laziness and apathy. So, we hired a professional artist with some bread, cockroaches, and neck beards, and this was the ultimate product.How we see ourselves
It's extremely important for the guild to have a clear picture of what we are, and how we should work as a team. If we were to accurately and honestly describe ourselves as a team, I can think of no more apt description than a bald eagle riding on a polar bear, riding on a dragon, for America and for freedom.Raid leading
For any group to meet its potential, it must have focus, and that's where the raid leader comes in. At High Five, our raid leader approaches every boss fight with a level head, a firm commitment to maximizing raid utility, and a highly-developed plan that ultimately ends up looking like male genitals on a white board.
The raid then blames the raid leader's pet for messing up any plan, pull, or even cancelled tv shows, job salaries, or planned pregnancies. This generally involves someone in the raid spitting on Flamawesome.The Responsibilities of Core Raiders
Core raiders should research every fight before raid. Historically, they then casually ignore all mechanics for the best chance at success. If, for instance, Blizzard created a boss in Warlords of Draenor called Sharkface whose only mechanic was to fire laserbeams from his eyeballs at random raid members, we would expect core raid members to stare into these intoxicating eyeballs to prove their manhood, such as Rob does in the following image.
It is the duty of each raider to come to the raid prepared. This usually means stocking up on potions, flasks, food, and tampons.Appropriate Mumble Etiquette
It's important during raid that communication channels remain open between the officers and the raiders. That's why we advise posting images in the Mumble chat of random gross youtube videos, hilariously bad porn, or images of sausages found while walking between your house and the local beaver pelt or weed dealer.Conclusion
Raiding is serious business, and High Five is a serious guild. We are serious about hand drawn art. We are serious about spaying and neutering our pets. And we are very serious about stupid youtube videos.
