We are primarily a PvP Guild, and as such PvP is the main focus of our activities. However, there is room for more casual players and PvE oriented players who will find opportunities to contribute to the guild. Examples of such participation could be leading quest groups, organizing events, aiding levelers, and participating in other non-PVP aspects of the game. A burning passion for PvP is not required, but a bit of a taste for PvP is suggested.
The character of our members is important to us. Our ideal candidates are mature players who can be part of a strong community. We have no desire for drama or trolls. We set our standards high and hold everyone in our guild to them.
We are looking for players who will be active. We respect that our members have personal lives and their time is precious. We are looking for players who can commit at least 10 hours/week most of the time. We will schedule various PvP, PvE, and other game related events each week. Attendance to all these events is not mandatory, but participation in such Guild events is a big part of being in LotD.
We use and require Ventrillo version 3, a free VoIP program.
We have a 100 slot Ventrillo server for general guild use, and have a guild fund to increase the slots as needed.
Why Choose LotD?
We are very selective with membership screening, but not elitist. We give everyone worthy a fair chance to prove that they belong in the guild and that they can contribute to the guild's success. Successful applicants are those who are dedicated, deadly, and dominant on the battlefield.
