If you are new to <Archmage> or are just curious about the guild, here is a small FAQ about <Archmage>
What kind of guild is <Archmage>?
<Archmage> is a next generation CaSoLL guild, that is, a Casual,
Social, Leveling and Learning guild focused on helping members out,
making friends, learning the game all while having fun and enjoying
So you don't raid?
Not particularly. <Archmage> does not actively seek to raid or
focus on high end raid progression. That being said, we encourage any
activity that involves your fellow guildies. Sometimes that means
questing together, sometimes that means killing a raid boss
That being said, <Archmage> has some extremely seasoned, veteran
raiders as part of its ranks who are 100% committed to teaching players
how to become good raiders in the event that they wish to one day join a
proper raiding guild. It is the guild's hope that if you ever have a
raiding applicant applying to your guild who is coming from
<Archmage> that you can rest assured that he/she is well trained
and will be a valuable member of your raiding guild.
What makes <Archmage> special? How are you different from any other casual/social guilds?
Archmage has taken a unique approach to social guilds.
There is no structure of authority in the guild per say. Instead, the
guild is a collection of individuals who all share a common goal; Have fun playing WoW and become better players
Due to this, there is no drama and no commitments. Archmage was created
for people who want to have the support of an entire guild without
having the strings attached. We have a strict open door policy. Members
can come and go as they please with no hard feelings. We like our
guildies to think of <Archmage> as their true home. So even if
they leave to focus on either raiding or pvping, they can always return
whenever they want and will be welcomed back with open arms.
Furthermore, <Archmage> is dedicated to helping new, returning or
even seasoned players better their game. Members within <Archmage>
actively pursue a mission which asks for them to not only help out
their fellow members, but help them become better players, whether it be
by teaching them something about their class, or helping them
understand one of the many aspects to the World of Warcraft.
So if no one has to do anything, then obviously you guys don't have all the guild amenities, right?
<Archmage> is fully equipped with all the amenities available to a
guild in WoW. Gbanks, tabards, forums, a website, vent/TS servers. If
any are missing, the guild Executors are usually very swift in adding
them, especially if people want it.
Why should I join <Archmage>?
Apart from the obvious (making new friends, enjoying the game, etc),
high ranking members of the guild have not only made it their personal
mission to help each individual member with any questions or problems
they may have, but also help each member become better a better player
of their class in general. The Executive staff of <Archmage>
firmly believe in "Better gaming through knowledge" and bring to the
guild vast stores of knowledge they have of the game. In this way,
<Archmage> is almost the single best in game resource you can have
if you are a new player, or playing a new class for the first time. It
is also the best place you can be if you like to help others out by
sharing your knowledge or help in increasing the population of "good
players" on the server.
Sounds awesome! Where do I sign up?
You can join <Archmage> simply by messaging any member of the
guild and asking for an invite. New members are encouraged to make a
forum account as soon as possible (though it is not mandatory). A lot of
the social aspects of the guild take place on the forums, plus it is an
awesome way to keep in touch with guildies when not in game.
