Annals of a Dying World of Warcraft Guild Part 1
I’m not sure how many parts this will go so let’s just start with part 1.
Currently, my World of Warcraft guild is dying. The reason why it’s not dead is because I still get messages from raiders who ask if there’s a raid tonight. And, my sub runs out in September, so there’s the chance of it being revived but it’s unlikely.
I started my guild sometime 2 weeks after the release of Cataclysm with a group of friends who used to play World of Warcraft back when there was a queue to someone getting the High Warlord position, and the weapons could never be bought with honor points.
It was pretty smooth sailing as every guild member was in a race to reach the end game: Dungeon Raids. Some of the guild members actually had to restart their account entirely as they had sold their accounts prior to The Burning Crusade and so their grind to the top began.
Some individuals, like myself, inherited or retained old accounts so we didn’t have to start afresh. Hence, it made the climb to the top less taxing.
