Earthen Ring is a quiet server as those of us that play on it well know. As we don't have a large pool of players to draw from due to most being committed to guilds for nostalgia and social groups, we happily welcome new comers into our ranks, and try to work people into the main raid that demonstrate aptitude. Historically, we have never required any of the game's pseudo-mandatory grinding. We believe that forcing those things is just going to drive people away, and keeping up a consistent raid has been a challenge for every guild on this server.
In spite of that, we have reliably raided throughout every tier while also allowing people to take breaks if they choose: our ability to fill a roster is tribute to both our environment as well as our ability to help people grow and gain access to opportunities they might not have gotten otherwise. If you're looking to do progression in a more relaxed environment that raids only two weeknights a week for three hours per night, then check us out. We raid Tuesday and Wednesday, 7-10pm EST. We're always recruiting people with a good attitude that want to push content in a team oriented environment.
The requirements I will ask for to get into the main raid will be one of three things: Do M+ with us and do well (at LEAST a 15 or higher), show me relevant logs of you doing well (current or last raid tier), or do well in our open raid. Speaking of which, even if you don't fit with our main raid, we have an additional raid on Thursdays that requires only a M0 or LFR equivalent ilvl with no attendance requirements. Lastly, we have a good relationship with other guilds that allow us to join each others raids. In fact, we've put together a community on Earthen Ring for expressly that purpose.
