I've been playing World of Warcraft for quite some time now and have been exposed to many different guilds, both good and bad. I was only part of one guild before the first expansion came out, and I was very happy with it. When The Burning Crusade hit, the guild fell apart, and I tried to pry myself into a spot in one of the top raiding guilds on my server. It went pretty well for a while, but after the raid leader and the guild master had a little tiff with each other, the guild split and I ended up going to the newly formed one. This is the guild in which I spent the rest of my Burning Crusade days.
With the coming of Wrath of the Lich King came an abundance of newly formed guilds and old guilds trying to get a jump on all the new content. I was searching for the right one, but I didn't entirely know what I wanted. Throughout the complete span of Wrath, I have found myself in seven different guilds. This may sound like a whole lot to some people, but I'm sure there are those of you out there who have been in more than that.
The first guild was one that was pretty good in The Burning Crusade but lost their muster when they couldn't get through Naxxramas's Arachnid Quarter. Good old Maexxna had it out for them. The next few guilds were ones that were "high up" in the raiding industry of the server. Some of them I had to leave because progress wasn't even an afterthought. Another turned out just like my guild in The Burning Crusade; there were people who didn't really like how things were run, and we ended up needing to make a new guild because the guild master jumped ship with all of our guild bank.
