Monolith is Recruiting   Leave a comment

Monolith is looking for you!

We are currently looking to add a skilled Death Knight and an Elemental Shaman or Demo Warlock to our progression roster.  We also have room for one non-specific ranged DPS. 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 is accepting limited class/spec applications for our progression raid team. However, exceptional players are always encouraged to apply, regardless of openings.

Class Needs:

  • 1 Elemental Shaman or Warlock who prefers Demo.
  • 1 Immediate opening for a skilled DK
  • 1 Non-specific Ranged DPS.

Healers and Tanks that are applying are strongly encouraged, but not required, to have a DPS off-spec that they have some proficiency with.

Monolith is a Day One horde guild on the Llane (est) server. Monolith started as a group of friends that have been raiding together since EQ1. We are pushing forward into Cataclysm, and have had great success to date with the current content available.

Our primary goal as a guild is to push end game content, while maintaining an environment conducive to having obligations outside of the game. We will not have world firsts, but we do offer the opportunity to play with like-minded adults, who want to enjoy the end game while pushing the content that is available to us. We are currently 7/7 Heroic in this tier of raiding and were 13/13 Heroic in tier 11 Content (pre-firelands).

Monolith raids 4 nights a week: Sunday from 7:00 – Midnight EST; Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 – Midnight EST. All of our invites start 15 minutes prior to the scheduled raid time to ensure a timely first pull.


  • Must play well with others. Because we are a guild of adults, it is important to us that everyone remembers we are all here to have fun. We have zero tolerance for drama or disrespect. We do not care how good your DPS is, or how amazing you think you are, it is imperative that you fit in well with our guild and treat everyone with respect or you will be asked to leave.
  • Ability to meet our raid schedule. Because we do have limited raid time, and we are trying to push the endgame in that time, it is important that you have the ability to meet our raid schedule. We request that our Members keep 60% attendance, and our Veterans keep 80% attendance. While we understand that the demographic that we are seeking will have things that may arise and may cause them to miss a raid here and there, we do expect you to make a commitment to our guild.
  • Know your class. I think this one speaks for itself. One thing that is unique about our guild is that we do actively seek to help our players improve, but we cannot squeeze a rock to make water. You need to have a level of skill that is commensurate with the content we are currently working on.
  • Be willing to improve. The first step to becoming a better player is recognizing that there is always something new to learn and always room for improvement. You must accept this, and actively seek to improve yourself as a player, as well as constructively work with your classmates so that we can improve as a team.
  • Gear. We have always firmly believed that the player is more important than the gear they are wearing. If you can show us that you have skill, and dedication, we can gear you. While we would like you to have gear appropriate to the content we are working on, not having that gear will not be an insurmountable hurdle to your application.
  • Loyalty. Monolith is a family. We have a high member retention rate, and when we recruit members it is important to us that they want to be a part of Monolith, which means enjoying the good and hanging in there through the bad. We are not a stepping stone to the next best thing. We have been up front and honest with you, and we expect the same courtesy in return.

If you think that Monolith is a good fit for you, please take the time to complete our recruitment application. This application can be found at Monolith.
