Magnae Mammae is a mythic raiding guild. We have stood the test of time, starting raiding in March 2005. If you are looking for a stable raiding guild clearing mythic content each tier, and have what we want (see below) then we are the guild for you.
We are primarily looking for the classes or specs shown on the left. Good applications for specs we are not actively recruiting will be still considered.
In short, ‘we don’t do tactics’. Well, that is, standard ones.
First off, we DO NOT want our raiders to read up on a boss before we approach it. On a new boss, we go by the dungeon journal and knowing our class: we discuss the abilities and come up with an approach we will try via TS and raid chat, then have a go. If it does not work, we change it around. Then, if we do not kill it, we will dicuss different strategies on our forum. It is that simple. You might say, surely that cannot be the fastest way to killing a new boss. You are most probably right. Soooooooooo, why do we do it? To sum it up, it is more challenging and more fun. Not to mention that a specific strategy might be better for a certain raid composition and not viable for others.
Raid Times:- GMT+1:
Wednesday:- 20:00 – 23:00
Thursday:- 20:00 – 23:00
Sunday:- 20:00 – 23:00
Saturday(Optional Alt run):- 20:00 – 23:00
However, due to real life commitments, we occasionally start later (but never let it run past midnight), so a bit of flexibility may be required. Additionally, if people are up for it and available, we have been known to squeeze in another raid (or three!) – but fear not, they are in no way mandatory (well…apart from the usual peer-pressure, ever-so-friendly-and-loving-banter, silkworm-mail-spam and whatever else we come up with!).
Our expectations and requirements:
In a raider we have some expectations. We value attendance, performance and attitude very highly and these are the key qualities we will be looking at throughout your trial period.
It’s very important to us that you are able to attend the 3 main raids each week so that we can progress effectively and evaluate trials properly. Obviously real life comes first (emergencies) however if you know you will consistently miss a particular raid you should not apply. It is also important that you are prepared and ready for invites 15 minutes before the raid so we can start promptly.
Since we are pushing to do the hardest content in the game at a reasonable pace, you will be required to perform to a certain standard, this means you need to be able to listen to the raid leader, execute our tactics correctly and output the dps/hps we need for that fight. Raiders are be required to reach a 50% ranking on average for their gear level. While we do not want to encourage padding or ignoring tactics, this will certainly fail your trial, we do want to ensure that you understand your class/role to a high level and therefore can perform well.
We strive to do the best we can and therefore it is important you share our passion, this means outside of raids we expect you to be doing content to increase your performance, that could involve doing M+ for gear that has synergies fit for your class, that could be AP/legendary farming. We also expect you to read up on your class/role outside of raids. Any fights that you have missed the progress for, you will be expected to catch up on the tactics by talking to someone that was there, reading up the threads for bosses on our forums, or looking at guides online, however since we make our own tactics, I would encourage you to do this as a last resort. Doing these will help you to perform at a level you are proud of and that we want on our team.
Minor raid details:
Teamspeak is used and required during raids. You will need to be able to understand English.
Loot is to be used so we can increase our progress, therefore we use a loot council system.
