Aussie guild <Dawn> is now recruiting!

As you could guess from the title, <Dawn> is now recruiting.
While it's an open recruitment, we are primarily searching for skilled and mature players who're happy to use our guild forums and jump in vent to do Operations repside between 7-10pm AEST (2-5am PDT).

Oldschool players from the APAC RP server will probably recognise us; we are the same Dawn, same players, as the guild back on the Gav Daragon. As such, you know how we roll. Focused primarily on RP and end-game PvE, we derp around doing our thing our way.

For anyone who hasn't heard of us; We're an Australian based guild that's been focused on RP and end-game PvE since launch. That's not to say we don't run flashpoints or do PvP, just that when it happens it's more spur of the moment than a planned thing. While we do have an alt guild Impside, we are primarily Republic players, so that is where the vast majority of our guild-run events take place.

Being a bunch of people who've been playing together and with new people across multiple games for the past year or two (swtor, LoL, GW2, FFXIV, and a couple of steam games) we are rocking a pretty friendly and comfortable atmosphere that's easy to become a part of.

As mentioned above, while it is an open recruitment, the main reason behind this is because between now and when the Oceanic servers were closed we retained more than enough members to RP and run ops on a regular basis. But due to the release of multiple other games, RL circumstances, and people simply losing interest in the game, we have been struggling for numbers lately. With this recruitment we hope to bring in some new blood to bump our current regular ops team up from an 8 man to a 16 man, find some new faces to RP with if that's your thing, or even potentially find a new PvP Officer as all our current guild leaders are pretty casual about the PvP side of things.

The only things we expect from our members are:
1. Everybody likes to dick around, talk sh*t, and have fun, but at the end of the day you will treat your fellow guildies with the respect everyone deserves as equals.
2. The guild forums are used primarily for messing around, but also for organising ops times and other events. So if you want to be in the know about guild events, you'll have to keep an eye on them.
3. We use the voice-chat program Ventrilo to communicate during Operations. Anyone who participates in guild runs is also expected to use it. You don't have to talk if you're not comfortable with it, but you do have to be able to listen.

So, if you're an oldschool player looking for some familiar faces, a fresh player looking for people in the same timezone, or even just someone who's curious about the guild; feel free to reply to this thread, or check us out at:

EDIT: Also, please sent messages about invites or information to; this thread, the aforementioned guild forums, or Dawn players in-game. Don't send private messages to me via these forums as I generally review this without logging in, so your messages won't get replies because I don't log in to receive them.

There fixed it for you

But seriously, yes a few extras would be great to hang around with. Dont' care of your level or experience, just so long as you like having a good time, dumping crap on each other and getting **** done when it counts

In case anyone was wondering. Dawn is still recruiting.

As for the state of the guild at the moment:
- RP. I really don't know, as I'm not an RPer, but it seems to be flourishing. Someone else get in here and discuss it.
- PvE. After successfully integrating a few new members we've been regularly running SM DF/DP on Sunday/Monday nights to gear people up for tackling harder content. It's likely that that will continue for a while, but some HM SnV/DF is planned as soon as we notice that everyone's gear is up to scratch. We still don't have enough regulars for a 16 man, so there is still plenty of space for new people to join in.
-PvP... what PvP?
I kid. Some of our members PvP regularly, and we've been running Friday nights as a designated 'PvP night'. Albeit a bit unsuccessfully because people have lives and would prefer to be out drinking and socialising rather than stomping pugs. Weak. I know. But the interest is there so we hope it'll start taking off soon.

Shameless self-bump skillfully masquerading as another status update.

RP: F*ck RP (note; this view may not be shared by all guild members).
PvE: It's been rough. Getting a time that works for everyone is proving to be challenging, so most of our Ops lately have been spur-of-the-moment whenever there's enough interested people online. We're still in the gearing phase for our newer players so that we can once again put together a 'progression' team.
PvP: We kinda gave up on Friday nights. There isn't a high enough APAC population on this server to support consistent PvP games during our prime time hours. So instead we've been grouping up for PvP on Saturday/Sunday during the day (which is Friday/Saturday night for Americans) and it's been a lot of fun.

With the release of Elder Scrolls Online, Dawn is going to be losing a couple more of its veterans as regular players. So we are contemplating starting from the ground up (SM TFB/SnV) in gearing for PvE, with 1 or 2 experienced and ridiculously over-geared players making the ride a little easier for everyone else. This means it's the perfect time to jump on board for anyone who is looking to learn about and experience endgame raiding. It should be noted though, that the 'experienced' and 'ridiculously over-geared' players are just as likely to want to bring in alts who actually /need/ the gear. So be prepared to earn your spot. We don't carry people unless we're paid for our trouble :3

Hello, is this a imp or republic guild? I am rerolling onto this server due to inactivity on my home server. I am not Australian but due to being stationed in Guam due to the military, I am within your time zone. It would be awesome to play with people in my guild rather than watch the list be empty. I haven't rolled a toon yet but can pretty much play any class you need. Preferably heal or dps role. Thanks for reading.

We're now running regular ops but still looking for some more people to round out the numbers.

With the release of ESO we lost quite a few veteran players, so right now we're accepting all rolls to prolong Ops happening during APAC times on this server. Considering the imminent release of Wildstar (which has already shown it's going to steal a lot of players fro the server) the remaining Dawn players may be migrating to our sister guild on the Harbinger if the population doesn't continue to support the running of content during APAC times.

So if you're in our timezone, and you want to run Ops or PvP during APAC times, sign up. The dwindling Australian population on this server is making group content veeerrrryyy difficult to organize.
