UPDATED APRIL 2018
Who are we?

The Highland Warriors are a twelve year old guild, which is an achievement in itself - almost as old as the Hills(brad) ;) We’d likely describe ourselves as a casual raiding guild, but this doesn’t really do us justice – we’re not just about raiding and we’re more than the sum of our raiding parts.

The Highland Warriors are a friendly community of like-minded players, over the age of 18 - some just about, but most a significant amount of time since. We’re an old fashioned guild with old fashioned values. We believe that members of the guild should be able to rely on each other, no matter what your personal play preference, for raids; for mythics; for levelling; for achievement hunting; for the daily grind of World Quests and rep gains. To us, being in a guild is about sharing the experiences of this World of Warcraft together. (At this point, it's probably a good idea to add that we also don’t use voice comms for raids, we prefer the gentle tap of keys over the heavy breathing of mics ;) )

We have a number of guildies who have played since Vanilla, we have Burning Crusaders and Wrath Babies - a wealth of experience, knowledge and a stable core who have “grown up” within Warcraft. Our community is everything, and this is why we have been around so long.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raiding

We're Ahead of the Curve! 22nd April saw us finally defeat Heroic Unmaker! That's all goals achieved for this expansion and we're bloody proud of our plucky, mostly-10 (wo)man, raiding party for their efforts, determination and resilience :)

For the remainder of the expansion, this means that whilst we will continue to thwart the plans of Sargaras, this will be more at our leisure: raids will continue to run across Wednesdays and Sundays, between 21:00 – 23.30, but in a more relaxed way, as we farm for those last few upgrades and try our luck with the Unmaker Legendary...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not Raiding

When we're not seeking vengeance on the denizens of our current raiding tier, we mythic; we heroic; we world quest; some pvp; some achievement farm; some level their 874586th alt /coughSIFcough... Me, I just spend obscene amounts of money at the hairdressers to match the outfit of the week. Whatever you're into, there's someone to share your passion with, to help you and to spend time with in this crazy world we call home.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What we’re looking for

If you can keep up your HoTs when all about you
Are losing health and blaming it on you,
If you can taunt a boss when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream — and not make dreams your master;
If you can raid — and not make loot your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Trolled in /General to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the gear you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and fix ’em up with worn-out anvil:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of end game boss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your armour and cooldowns and trinkets
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except when Windavell calls break with: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk in guild and general and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Titans — nor lose the common touch,
If neither trash nor loving guildies can hurt you,
If all raiders count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of awesome DPS,
Yours is Azeroth and everything that’s in it,
And — which is more — you’ll be a Highland Warrior, my friend!

Currently, we are looking for... well, everything: raiders, socials, heroic and mythic+ dungeoneers, newbies, oldies, rerollers, horde defectors... Heroes :)

We're preparing to Battle for Azeroth and we need you!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What next?

Like what you've read?

Well... You're already in the right place :) Have a poke around and find out more about our raiding options, join our shoutbox, read up on our guild rules and see if we fit with your idea of what you're looking for.

You can also feel free to head on over to Thunderhorn to have a chat with me Elysah #2509 or Windavell, the GM if you'd like to know more.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fortune and glory await :)

Re: Recruitment news & Application Form

Postby Elysah » 30 Jul 2012, 16:59

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long does it take to answer applications?

A: It often varies, although the usual time is about 1 week. However, sometimes it may be faster or slower depending on how busy the Recruitment Officer is. On the rare occasions he is unavailable, the Guild Master, Windavell, will contact you instead.

Poor two-line applications, or applications which do not follow our template, are not deleted: but they are encouraged to submit their application in the proper format within the next few days. We never delete applications as they can be used by other applicants as examples of what may or may not make a successful application.

Complete applications are considered weekly and may take longer to reach a decision on. Please don't think that doesn't mean we are not interested, this can be due to current trials or lack of spots for that specific class.

Q: I hate how my guild is doing nowadays, could you give me some information about how my application is looking?

A: We don't rush into application decisions. If you are in a rush to get into a new guild and we are taking too long to answer, you are free to either wait for our answer or join a new guild. However, we would appreciate it if you could inform us of this, either by in-game mail, forum mail or by deleting your application.

Q: My class isn't listed on the classes you are recruiting, is it worth me applying?

A: We are always open to applications. If you think you would be a good fit for our guild, feel free to apply and we will see if there is a possibility of recruiting you ;) Seriously, however, we're open to all applicants if you have the right attitude.

Q: Why is my application handled through the forum and not ingame?

A: Over the years, we've had hundreds of applications and we consider each player carefully against our criteria of what we look for in guildie. We value fairness and honesty and the forum allows us to assess openly. In using the forum, everyone is clear from the start about what is expected - from both the guild and the applicant - along with anything else which may have been agreed.

We believe that its important that everyone in the guild has the opportunity to see who is applying - Azeroth can be a very small world and you may have already encountered one of our number in the past and made an impression.

Furthermore, it frees up online time for the fun parts! We want to enjoy adventuring with our friends, play time is important to us all. However, if you pass that first part of the screening process you will be invited to an ingame chat. If this is the case, please try to be as specific as possible about your online time within the time period suggested. It will make the application process go a lot faster.

Q: Why must I move all my alts into the guild?

A: This guild has been around on Thunderhorn since Vanilla: we're 10 years old and counting. We're a successful guild because of community and the team ethos that it promotes. Playing alts under the same banner as your main means you get to know your fellow guildies and build good relationships with them - death and fortune are good for friendships :)


If you have any other questions regarding your application, then please contact the Recruitment Officer or Guild Master,

*Windavell

If neither of them are available, type /who Highland Warriors and ask a guildie for information :)

Application Form

Use the following template when making an application to join the Highland Warriors, with your MAIN character.

Please complete to the best of your ability and, most of all, be honest about yourself and what you are looking for. If you are a lower level player, delete all that is not relevant, but please try to tell us more about who you are and what you are hoping for as you level

To ensure you answer the questions correctly, please read - http://www.highlandwarriorsguild.com/hs ... f=7&t=6478 for help and guidance.

Please label the SUBJECT BOX with the name of your main character and class, along with RAIDER or SOCIAL. This then needs to be posted as a NEW TOPIC, in this section of the forum.

Please be aware that all applications are public. In some cases we appreciate that players may wish to submit private applications. Whilst this is not something we encourage, as we think it is important that the guild at least get to see the players who maybe joining their ranks, we can accept applications through the Private Message under certain circumstances, providing you agree to disclose the reasons why you wish to submit it privately. Your application will be shared with the Officers, however.
