Ferus Recruitment FAQ
« on: 20, September, 2019, 10:10:38 »
Recruitment: OPEN

Current recruitment status?
Currently recruiting pretty much anything.

Formally, none. We accept players, not characters, and much prefer ones we think will fit in. Most guild members are 25-35 years old, so a level of maturity is expected (for a sufficiently vague definition of "mature"), along with a sense of humor and some common sense. Sanity is entirely optional. If you want to join us for raiding, having put in the effort to get whatever gear you can outside of raids obviously gives a much better impression. A respect for the fact that this is an RP server is expected, even if we are not an RP guild.

What happens after I apply?
After we receive an application, our members discuss it internally. Because we like to argue about things, and will take any excuse to do so. We usually give this step a few days to give everyone a chance to chip in. We'll let you know the result as soon as we know it ourselves. If you're accepted we'll invite you as a trial member, which you'll stay as until we're suitably convinced that you're awesome or until we forget that you're not a full member. Trialists have the same rights as full members, including for loot and raid spots, so the length of your trial period shouldn't really affect you. The only differences is forum privileges.

The Guild

What's the guild's main focus?
Enjoyment. For most of us that means PvE raiding, but we tend to do a little bit of everything when we feel like it. The main thing is to play with people you like.

A reasonable number of actively played alts are welcome if your main is in the guild. Any alts not played actively (or with stupid names) will be kicked without mercy. Applications from alts whose mains are not in the guild are generally not accepted.

How old is Ferus?
Ferus was formed in 2006, shortly after Scarshield Legion EU opened. Depending on how you count, the current guild is either younger or older than that. Although considering that I'm making minor modifications to a post Sanzul made, and that I am making it for classic, the current guild is certainly younger. Long story short, the guild <Pariah> was formed at level 60 when <Ferus> and <Seekers> merged, and most of the members of Pariah reformed under the old Ferus banner when raid sizes went from 40 to 25 in TBC. The guild has been continuously active since.

The Ferus BBQQ is our annual IRL meetup, which has been going since 2008 (or possibly 2007, depending on who you ask). It's traditionally held around midsummer and involves lots of barbecue and beer. The location tends to be somewhere in Scandinavia, but the exact place varies. Some year's BBQQ was in the Blekinge archipelago in Sweden, and the year before that was in Moss in southern Norway. Previous BBQQs have been held in the Swedish cities of Malmö, Lund, Umeå, and Gävle, as well as in the Finnish archipelago.


Raiding days?
TBD. Expect two or three nights per week (or just the one if we have things on farm.) Previously, we've raided 20-23 realm time, with a 15-minute break somewhere near the middle. We tend to be very strict about not going past the end time.

TBD. Unless we find a good AddOn for in-game event management, it's likely one will be written for that explicit purpose.

Currently nothing. We have not started raiding in Classic yet. You can check our old retail progress here or our WoWProgress page for a more reliably up to date count.

Voice chat?
We heard all the cool kids use Discord, so that's where we do that sort of thing nowadays.
I gave Gyrm a new signature. Let's see if he notices.
