After a decade under the same senior leadership and on the same schedule, we feel comfortable staking our claim as one of the pioneers of successful three-night raiding.
Our members have careers, studies, families or other interests that emphasize their need for a consistent schedule and reliable environment. They take the 12 hours we spend together seriously while having fun. We collaborate in an active forum and Discord, where we prefer analysis and planning over yelling and complaining. This investment in preparation is an expectation of all our raiders, given our limited schedule. We like to say that we kill bosses in our preparation before we do so in-game.
We treat each other with respect and demand high performance, excellent gameplay, and positive attitudes. We do not believe the anonymity of the internet serves as an excuse for poor behavior towards one another. Drama and disrespect are not tolerated here. Racism, sexism and homophobia are unwelcome.
Finally, while our environment and progression are equally important to us, we also never lose sight of the fact that weâ€™re slaying internet dragons together and that all of the above is relevant only if weâ€™re having fun. We laugh together, go to Blizzcon together (those who can make it) and generally enjoy each otherâ€™s company, whether in Mumble, forums or in game.
Here are some important things you should know about us when determining a potential fit:
Three nights a week: Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday
Raid times: 7:45PM muster; 8pm - PST to 12am PST raid
We do NOT have "clean-up" nights or additional nights during progression
We do NOT push alts or split runs to boost gear on our mains
We clear Heroic, while it is relevant, during our same Mythic schedule within our allotted 12 hours
Player feedback is fact-based and critical
Loot system: Loot Council
All consumables are provided by the guild bank. Guild repairs are on 24/7, even for recruits.
While we are mature and friendly, we remain a progression guild; strong play is required
Temerity was founded in June 2009 by people that love to raid and had been successful in top 100 guilds, but grew tired of hardcore guilds that required 5-7 nights per week raiding. Our founders' mission was to apply our hardcore raiding mindset and experience and create a guild where we could accomplish more in 3 short raids per week than most guilds can in 5.
Our model proved itself when shortly after forming we were the 145th US guild to earn Alone in the Darkness (25 player), and our success continued with top 75-100 hard mode kills of bosses throughout the remainder of WotLK.
In Tier 11 content, Temerity has continued its momentum with several top 50-75 kills including US 40th Heroic Al'akir, US 57th Heroic Cho'gall and US 49th Heroic Sinestra.
In Tier 12, we built on our previous successes by securing numerous top 50 kills, including US 25th Heroic Rhyolith, US 34th Heroic Alysrazor, US 36th Heroic Ragnaros, US 39th Beth'tilac, and US 49th Heroic Baleroc. Our relatively highly ranked Ragnaros kill paved the way for an overall ranking of of US 36th.
Since then, we've maintained a ~US Top 50 progression environment for our raiders. Eight years is a long time, but here's a brief summary of our more recent expansion progression:
# US 32nd G'huun
# US 42nd Gul'dan
# US 49th Helya
# US 44th Xavius
# US 49th Blackhand
# US 57th Archimonde
Mists of Pandaria
# US 15th Garrosh 25H
# US 19th Ra-den 25H
# US 19th Sha of Fear 25H
# US 31st Heroic Madness
# US 36th Heroic Ragnaros
# US 49th Sinestra (25) - Pre-nerf
