Here we have it folks, the gods of Aerie Peak [US] server. I have played the Aerie Peak server for years now and I loved every minute of it all the way until it became a locked server and wait times get in the higher minutes but anyways the best guilds of Aerie Peak has granted me the ability to talk about them and to bow at their feet and this is what we had to ask them…
Do you all have an organized Arena Team? I do not arena very much. I will be starting do to 2’s now that raiding is down to two nights a week. Likely with a Resto Shaman as a partner.
What is your guild primarily focused with at the moment? Our weekly raid schedule only consists of two nights currently. We spend around 2.5 hours clearing out Naxx one night and the other night we do Sarth +3 and Malygos. We typically have a 4 night a week schedule but the lack of current content has reduced the amount of raiding we do.
Is your guild ready to take on tougher challenges already? Are you all as high as geared as possible? We are looking forward to the release of Uldar. There is always further gearing that can be done but it is minimal upgrades for many of us.
If you could improve one thing of your guild, what would it be? I would love to improve our recruitment process. It seems like we reject 80+% of our applications before even doing an interview. If we could find a way to get in better quality applicants it would make recruiting easier in the long-term.
What is your best memory of Exiled? Killing Kaelthas was the biggest highlight in the guild’s history for me. It was a huge sense of accomplishment. This was closely followed by killing M’uru for the first time. Processing both kills we had made a big recruitment push. Getting the kills proved that going back to recruiting was the correct action to take.
Do you prefer Horde or Alliance? I personally prefer Horde, but I am biased since I have never played Alliance. I am just glad we don’t have a million female night-elves running around.
Do you all have an organized Arena Team? We do not have an official guild team but our guild members do participate in Arena but it is not our focus.
What is your guild primarily focused with at the moment? We are always looking to keep our consistency high – progress depends on consistency.
Is your guild ready to take on tougher challenges already? Are you all as high as geared as possible? We are very well geared since there is not much content yet and we have cleared it all since the 1st week of the expansion onward. Gear is not much of an issue right now – people and skill are more of what are needed in the current set of end game content.
If you could improve one thing of your guild, what would it be? I use to be the GM of the first horde guild on Aerie Peak to do end game content. The hardest thing for us was keeping consistent players- we were always trying to keep our numbers up and there was a very small pool of players to recruit.
What is your best memory of Uprising? The first time we cleared Illidan knowing that we have seen everything there is.
Do you prefer Horde or Alliance? I do not really care or have a preference on which faction to go but having small population to recruit from and attract to is always a problem.
