Welcome to Nerf.
Nerf was formed on February 20, 2010 by many friends who have been raiding since the beginning of The Burning Crusade. We decided to take all our raiding experience and create a friendly, but serious guild to progress in the coming expansions.
The average age in the guild is 25, and most of us have university, work, among other things. However, that does not make us stray away from our drive to progress in the game we enjoy to play.
The social aspect of our guild is very important. and we would like to keep it that way.
We have a very long raiding history. Most of the members and officers have been raiding since Vanilla WoW and have shown consistency and success up to the latest expansion, Cataclysm.
Our goals are simple:
1. Keep a light raiding schedule. Most of us have work, university, girlfriends/boyfriends, poker nights (I heard), and so forth.
2. Clear the current content quickly on the few days that we raid.
3. Have fun.
Our official raid times are: Wednesday, Thursday, and Monday from 19:30 to 23:00. The rest of the days are free days, and everyone is free to do what they want. We do arrange alt or achievement runs if we have enough players on the off-days.
Summer is around the corner. We are looking for reliable players to continue raiding throughout summer without interruptions. All classes are welcome to apply, though we are looking for the following classes at a higher priority:
We are looking for the following qualities in our applicants:
Intelligence: Our ideal applicant is someone that is not afraid of math. They are capable of critical thought, and they are able to contribute in a meaningful way when discussing a boss strategy.
Skill: We recruit players that play mistake-free. The ability to top healing or damage meters is certainly a plus, but what we're really looking for are players that don't make mistakes which lead to their own death or the death of another player.
Initiative: Our ideal applicant is a self-starter who is always trying to improve. They keep up to date with the latest theory-craft and boss strategies, they never have to be told to enchant or gem any gear, and they always bring and use the correct consumables. There is no piggy-back riding in Nerf.
Gear: While we do not have any specific gear requirements, we consider gear to be a major indicator of a players level of competence and effort. We expect our applicants to have the best gear that is reasonably available to them at their current level of progress.
Personality: Nerf is an adult guild with a grown-up-yet-somewhat-silly atmosphere. Our ideal applicant can take a joke and does not offend easily. They are capable of receiving criticism without taking it personally. As a guild we are always trying to improve, and this process includes pointing out mistakes when they are made. The ideal applicant can handle when their mistakes are pointed out.
Reliability: The internet is a harsh, cold wasteland of anonymity. We're looking for players who are honest, responsible, reliable and trustworthy. The ideal applicant is a good person that doesn't use the internet as an excuse to be an asshole. They always let us know when they're going to miss a raid night, and they're always honest with the guild as a whole.

Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this. I also must mention this is one achievement that I had absolutely nothing to do with.
A special thank you to the players who did this on their own. You deserved it.
Before the nerfs hit, we were at 4/7 heroic on 25 man and we were working on Alysrazor. Nerfs hit and the last two bosses died quickly leaving Ragnaros only.
Baleroc was among the funnest bosses ever. One small mistake can cause tormented to spread to the entire raid and that would be the end of the encounter.
I have to say we are feeling a bit disappointed in the tuning of the bosses that are heavily favoring 10 man raiding over 25 man, but whatever.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this kill. As you can see in the wonderful screenshot gracefully donated to us by Mystikz, it was a textbook kill.
No one gave up on this, congratulations everyone.
