The Classifieds: The subtlety of an all-rogue guild


The Classifieds brings you weekly news from around the WoW community, including our famous Random Acts of Uberness shout-outs to players who make your WoW sessions memorable.

This is a first for me. While I've seen lots of all-elf themed guilds, I've never seen an all-rogue guild. It sounds like a great time, but I'm not sure how they see through all that stealth at guild meetings:

Thought I'd drop you a line to tell you about the guild I am in on The Venture Co (EU). It is an all-rogue RP/PVP guild which has been around almost since server start. I've been a member over 3 years now and we have over 50 unique players on the roster (we don't allow alts) and most nights we have at least 5, and sometime 20 online which is pretty good for a primarily RP guild of only rogues on a low population server! It is headed by a female Forsaken, Anethrax, who leads and keeps her band of Horde assassins under tight control.
Obviously we don't raid or run heroics etc. as a guild, but we run normal battlegrounds sometimes and do a lot of world PVP; we have good relationships (out of character at least!) with many Alliance RP guilds as well as Horde ones. We pride ourselves on including all levels in the what we do, as much as we can -- especially when we hunt alliance. I would say that 90% of the PVP we do, we do in-character (i.e. roleplay).
If you want more info then I'll be happy to give you the contact details of my guild leader, Anethrax, and I ran it past him before contacting you of course.

Random Acts of Uberness

It's when another player lights up your night with precise play, a wicked sense of humor or unexpected generosity that your login becomes something to remember. Share your Random Acts of Uberness with Keep things brief (150 words or less, please), and be sure to list everyone's character names and home realms or battlegroup. Don't be afraid of sending an entry more than once if it doesn't appear; sometimes internet dragons eat email, and we'd hate to let that keep deserving players from getting their due.

Lorenn on Kael'thas (US-A) I made a vial of sands mount for one of his guildies but he had no money to tip, as he was tapped out buying the mats. I chalked it up to a learning experience for myself to negotiate the tip beforehand and was going to just leave it at that. Then Lorenn whispered me. He was going to loan this guildie money so I could be tipped for making the alchemy mount. I was stunned, the tip was generous. I wasn't going to run off and bash UD but now I proclaim their honor and decency. -- Anonymous

LGBT-friendly Sane Asylum has a zero tolerance policy for many hot-button issues. Are you one of those people who immediately turns off Trade chat because it makes you crazy? Looking for a guild home where your brains and personality matter more than your DPS? Looking for an LGBT-friendly guild with a zero tolerance policy toward racism, sexism and homophobia? Looking for guild chat chock-full of snarky comments, Aaron Sorkin references and witty repartee? Sane Asylum of Garrosh is looking for you. Visit to apply.

Adult-friendly Oh No Not Again is a guild that's specifically suited to the busy, distracted lifestyle of the grown-ups among us. Oh No Not Again (Trollbane-Horde) is a small, casual, adults-only raiding guild. Since we are all adults, we all have real-life commitments, and our guild policies allow for that -- we don't expect members to rearrange their lives around our raid schedule. We're currently looking for everything but melee dps (sorry melee!) to help fill our roster out a bit. Our primary raid nights are Tuesday and Thursday, 10:15 pm-12:30 am. Warped sense of humor is a plus. For more info, feel free to contact Rhysha ingame, or check out our website at
