<Doctors of Philosophy> (collectively known as PhD) was founded on the realm of “Earthen Ring” on October 2007 by three real life friends who want to see the horde side of the game together. The guild’s name <Doctors of Philosophy> stems from the fact the three founding members all held the same said degree in real life.
We are a friendly, primarily social guild looking for like-minded adults (ages 18+ please) to quest, instance, and casually raid with. We don't really care what class you play or what your spec is as long as you want to be part of a community helping each other enjoy the game. WE ARE NOT A END GAME PROGRESSION RAIDING GUILD. We raid for fun and to see the content in a friendly atmosphere. We characterize our raiding effort as serious, structured, disciplined and fun (i.e. we expect you to be geared, gemed, potted and competent, yet we don't have a raid attendance requirement).
We have zero tolerance for prima donna, drama, and childish behavior. The average age of this guild is over 30 and we believe everyone can act his/her own age.
These are our goals and activities in game:
Casual Raiding: Raiding is a lot of fun and we like to do it when we can. Our raids is about a social environment where people can have fun and see the content. While we are not the most progressed guild we are serious about tackling contents in an mature, organized and efficient manner. Our firm raiding time currently is 8:30 PM Server on Friday night. We do other raids as opportunity present itself.
Heroics: For those looking to gear up for raiding, or who don't want to raid, we organize guild heroic runs of various instances. There are random instance ran nightly and there is a large pool of players to pick from.
Leveling: At the moment, we're pretty top heavy with the majority of members having at least one level 80. We all have alts, and welcome new members rerolling on this server or otherwise trying out something new.
Social: We have a variety of other events that members are invited to join. We've had parties in Ratchet, naked gnome races, PVP get-togethers, and the like. Not to mention group questing, instancing, and sharing when we succeed and when we don't. (Ah, the funny wipes or silly moments we could share--well, only if you are one of us!)
Training: Want to learn how to heal an instance, or how to tank that tricky boss? Or maybe you just want to DPS, but aren't sure how to get the most out of your character? Those with more experience are willing to help you do what you want to do so you can enjoy playing a game not working a grind.
All in all, we want mature people who want a good laid-back, social group to enjoy the game with!
Various Notes: We have a guild bank with six tabs, tabard, website, vent server, and all the amenities you'd expect.
