Originally founded in EverQuest more than 15 years ago, the guild has had incarnations in many various games including - Age of Conan, Aion, P99, Rift, Vanguard, Warhammer online, World of Warcraft, Ragefire, Phinigel and now back on the Wow Classic server Pyrewood Village (PvE);
Darkwind has always endeavored to be at the cutting edge, and was for many years one of the top guilds worldwide in EverQuest, this drive to succeed lead to several worldwide first kills, in multiple games.
Application Requirements for WoW Classic:
• Be 18+ and mature
• Level 60
While you carry the Darkwind tag, your actions reflect upon the guild. Therefore, unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated, and may lead to guild removal. Action will be based on the severity of the infraction, and only once a behavior does not change after a warning has been given. Common sense and fair play apply here. These rules also apply if a race is on for raid mobs.
We are a very friendly guild, and do things the “common sense” way. We therefore run the guild with the following mindset:
• Do not break the EULA, as this might reflect poorly on the guild.
• Always do what is best for the guild.
• Respect the opinion of others.
• Help others in the guild outside of raid hours.
• Have a positive attitude in general.
• Ability to listen and follow raid leader's instructions.
• Thorough knowledge of your class and the hours required to advance it as much as you can.
We raid 3 times a week. Our Current Scheduled raids are on the following days:
You have made the decision to apply to us. Your application post will be copied to a private section on the forum. Once there, your application will be discussed internally to determine whether you have been accepted or rejected.
If accepted than what follows is a brief interview on Discord to be certain that you know what will happen during trial. Once the interview is complete you will receive an invitation and start a trial period of 4 weeks.
There will be instances where this duration will be shortened, but it will depend on your activity and attendance as well as performing at a consistently above average level. On the opposite side, your trial may be extended if deemed necessary by the Officer team.
During your trial you should group as much as you can with Darkwind members so everyone can get to know you.
How to pass your Trial
• Be on Discord during raids.You do not need to speak, but listening is required;
• Not have characters in other raiding guilds;

• Respect the opinion of others, take constructive criticism well;
• Have a positive attitude towards new encounters;
• Ability to listen and follow raid leader's instructions. This includes understanding English well enough;

We will consider leveling applications, this would mean you are tagged and level within Darkwind as Trialist rank. You will need to commit to be raid worthy in level, knowledge and gear within a comfortable time frame, usually 4-6 weeks from the date you joined.
We always have members leveling alts, however you must be self motivated and enthusiastic to achieve max level and learn to raid within our environment.
