Monolith is Recruiting   Leave a comment

I’m terribly sorry to have to bother you with this again, I truly am.  But as others have noted, recruiting has become increasingly difficult, to the point of being borderline prohibitive.  I would feel somewhat remiss if I didn’t use every avenue available to me in my efforts to see my guild continue to succeed.  And so I will ask your forgiveness once again for troubling you with another recruitment advert in this space.

Monolith has opened recruitment for the following:

  • One Tank (please see below for additional details on the open tanking position).
  • One Healer – we have removed our priest restriction and will consider all healer applicants at this time.
  • Two DPS – we are currently considering all classes and specs, but have a definite opening for a DK.

Further Information for Potential Tank Applicants

While we prefer a Protection Warrior or a Blood Death Knight, we will review all exceptional tank applications that are received. As we currently have several skilled off spec tanks that can fill this role until we find a good fit, we will be vetting applicants for this key position in our roster very carefully.

A qualified tank applicant will exhibit the following:

  • A solid knowledge of all T11 raid content (required), Hard Mode Experience is a big plus. We are an 10/13 HM guild, and are working through Heroic Cho’gall. You will need to be able to step into our raids at our progression level upon recruitment.
  • Be confident and fearless in your role as a tank.
  • Be open to constructive criticism and feedback regarding your tanking.
  • Be ready to accept challenges. Our DPS will push you to your limits and you will need continue to meet their challenge with each raid.
  • Be open to strategy discussions with both the tanking team and the healing team.
  • A DPS offspec is strongly encouraged, though not required.

Anyone interested can learn more about who we are at www.monolithwow.com. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! You are always free to shoot me an email at fallingleaves51@gmail.com with questions as well.

You can find our recruitment information on our website. I have also copied it after the break, if you’d like to look it over without visiting another site! Read the rest of this entry »

Monday Musings: Insanity Edition   4 comments

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  ~Albert Einstein
 
Sometimes I wonder if Albert Einstein raided.  Surely he must have, because he seems so in tune with how I feel sometimes on raid nights.  Either that, or raiding really is rocket science and we just haven’t realized that fact as yet.

Monolith Recruiting One Tank   3 comments

This is a post that I’m actually really sad to have to post, and I may write on it more later.  But I’m not quite ready for that yet, and I need to deal with a more pressing need. 

Monolith has opened recruitment for an Exceptional Tank.  While we prefer a Protection Warrior, we will review all exceptional tank applications that are received.  As we currently have several skilled off spec tanks that can fill this role until we find a good fit, we will be vetting applicants for this key position in our roster very carefully.

The qualified applicant will exhibit the following:

  • A solid knowledge of all T11 raid content (required), Hard Mode Experience is a big plus.  We are an 8/13 HM guild, and are close to a kill on Heroic Nefarian.  You will need to be able to step into our raids at our progression level upon recruitment.
  • Be confident and fearless in your role as a tank.
  • Be open to constructive criticism and feedback regarding your tanking. 
  • Be ready to accept challenges.  Our DPS will push you to your limits and you will need continue to meet their challenge with each raid.
  • Be open to strategy discussions with both the tanking team and the healing team.
  • A DPS offspec is strongly encouraged, though not required.

Are You A Hunter or A Warlock?   1 comment



What?  You are?!?!  Well then I have a deal for you!

You see Monolith is looking for you!  That is to say that we are looking to add a skilled Hunter and Warlock to our progression roster.  I’ve included our entire recruitment “blurb” after the break, but thought I’d highlight a few things here!

  • We are a group of adults seeking enjoyment from the game, the majority of our members are working adults with schedules and commitments outside of raiding.  Our median age is mid to late 20′s.
  • We have very low tollerance for Drama, and a very high demand for respect.
  • We put a strong focus on individual performance and accountability – you will frequently receive feedback and constructive criticism on your performance.
  • We have a strong team environment, firmly believing that you are only as strong as your weakest member.

Still interested?  Follow the break to learn more or visit our website!  Please don’t hesitate to nudge me personally if you have questions or want more information!

Monolith Recruitment   1 comment

I know some people dislike utilizing their blogs for recruitment purposes.  However, as part of our leadership I take a different view on that.  I see it as part of my job to use every tool and avenue available to seek out the best applicants that we can find and add to our roster.  I think that my blog is a good tool to do that with, as long as I’m not constantly spamming everyone on a frequent basis with recruitment posts I don’t think any of my readers overly mind (I could be wrong!).  But since it is my blog, and I put my heart into my guild, I’m going to go ahead and use this venue to let folks know that we have a couple of limited raid positions open at this time.

Specifically, we are recruiting:

  • One healer – Paladin, Priest or Shaman (sorry druids!  we have 3 on our roster already!)
  • One Hunter
  • In lieu of a hunter, we would consider any exceptional ranged DPS.

Anyone interested can learn more about who we are at www.monolithwow.com.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!  You are always free to shoot me an email at fallingleaves51@gmail.com with questions as well.

Beware!   37 comments

I am disgusted. Absolutely disgusted.

After 5 years of this game, I thought that I had seen the worst that WoW had to offer. I had seen the seamy underbelly, the lows that sometimes people go to in this game. But I was wrong. Never before had I seen such disgusting behavior as I saw last night. And the worst part of it? Apparently it was some of our own innocent efforts that brought this deplorable behavior to our front door!

Ok, I am probably losing people. Perhaps, I should back up a bit here and start my story from the beginning. Yes, I think I probably should do just that. Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes There is Punch and Pie!   Leave a comment

Monolith is still looking for a few people that we feel will be a good fit for our guild, which in turn means that I’m still in the process of recruiting. Which means that recruiting is on my brain about 65% of the time that my brain is functioning! We don’t over-recruit, so we basically only fill the spots that are open in our roster, however this has one serious detriment: when you have a hole…it’s a hole, which means that sometimes you have to be creative about shoving some plumber’s putty into the hole as a quick fix (like having your feral druid get all his healing gear in order…just in case) until it’s permanently filled. We’ve been fairly fortunate that we some friends and/or folks with nicely geared alts that have stepped in to fill those holes from time to time, but it still leaves us with a gap that needs to be permanently filled.

Because I am responsible for recruiting, and because we are somewhat selective with applicants due to wanting to make sure they are a good fit for us, I am again utilizing all of the sources that I have available to me to perform this task. That means that I am once again posting about recruiting here, on the blog. I do apologize if you find this tacky, but hope you understand the unenviable position that I am in and forgive me!

I am pretty transparent about my guild here so if you’ve followed me for any period of time, and I’ve not scared you off, you have a good feel for what we are about. If you just recently found me, or just don’t know a lot about Monolith, you can read up a little bit about who we are and our expectations after the break! We are 6/12 ICC Hard Modes currently, and hoping to add another one or two to our tally this week. So we are looking to add some folks for continued Hard Mode Progression.

What we are looking for: Right now we are looking to add one or two healers to our roster. Our preference would be a Holy Priest or Resto Shaman, but we may consider an exceptional Holy Paladin or Resto Druid.

But, I don’t heal! You say. That is ok! Because we are also looking to add one Rogue or Feral DPS Druid to the roster. We may also consider one exceptional Shadow Priest as well.

How to Apply: All of our applications are confidential, and can be found at www.monolithwow.com
