About eight months ago, I found myself in need of a new guild. It was nothing against the old guild; it just wasn't meeting my needs at the time. No one was ever in chat, and I was lonely. I'd grown bored with pugging heroics and wanted to see some endgame content before Cataclysm dropped.
So the husband and I set out to find The Perfect Guild. We had a short list of things we needed. We aren't hardcore, but we still wanted to raid. We wanted a guild where we could level new characters and get help when needed. We wanted enough members that guild chat was usually busy. We wanted friendly people who would welcome us in with open arms. We also needed the guild to be on our current server, because we couldn't afford a transfer. We poked around on the forums for awhile, and suddenly my husband jumped out of his chair. "Come here!" he said. "I think I've got one!" I read through the recruitment ad ... and it was perfect. Everything we wanted and more. We quickly applied and were indeed welcomed with open arms. Two weeks later, I joined a weekly raid and set foot in ICC for the first time.
How did you find your current guild? Why did you join them? Are you still happy with them?
