Why Discord?
Discord lets us manage an active roster and is an alternative to the traditional forums as it lets us host both text and voice channels for our members. It plays an important role in our guild as it is available on both PC and Android, thus allowing us to stay in touch with our community.

We've integrated our spreadsheets and bots to work with Discord to ensure a simple yet effective method of management. Our members are able to adjust their data across our spreadsheets via integrated bot commands. No messy permissions or confusing edits.

An optional Teamspeak server is available for static groups that need it.

What if I don't fit the Hardcore description?
We understand that people have lives and cannot invest ridiculous amounts of hours into a game. What matters to us is that you as a player, progress towards end game (Be it in the form of gearing up, clearing content, etc.). 

If you’re a Semi-hardcore player and are interested in joining us, reach out to us on Discord and talk to us. We’re willing to make exceptions under certain circumstances. 

As for crafters, we’ve got a few dedicated slots set aside for you. Understand that this is a position of importance as we’ll be relying on you to excel at your profession to provide our members with high quality gear.
