Ascension is a world progression guild at the forefront of SWTOR PvE raiding. We strive to be among the games best players, providing a fun and respectful environment to create an enjoyable atmosphere for both our guild members and the server as a whole. We like to call ourselves a casually-hardcore guild. Casual in atmosphere and schedules (3 raid nights a week max, real life first) but when it comes to raiding we bring our A game and have the mindset to clear.

We focus mainly on 8-man content, but jump into 16-man's every now and then just to say we did it.

Progression PVE Accomplishments:

- 4/5 NiM DF (8 man, Server First for first 4) - Working on Brontes
- 4/5 NiM DF (16 man)
- 7/7 NiM S&V (8 man, Server First, World 7th, US East First)
- 7/7 NiM S&V (16 man, Server First)
- 5/5 NiM TFB (8 man, Server First, World 7th, 2-Hour title)
- 5/5 NiM TFB (16 man, Server First, 2-Hour title)
- 4/4 NiM EC ( 8 man, Server First, 2-Hour Title)
- Dreadful Entity Kill
- Hateful Entity Kill
- Nightmarish Dreadtooth Kill (10 Stack, Server First with RG)
- 5/5 HM DF (8 & 16 man)
- 5/5 HM DP (8 & 16 man)

Guild is currently NiM DF Focused.

For content on farm we have no set rosters as we like to mix and match players each week so everyone has a chance to work with each other and demonstrate that we don't need set raid squads in order to keep clearing content. For progression we try to have 2 static teams in order to have a better chance of clearing quickly. However guild progression comes first and adjustment will be made to groups to ensure we can achieve server first and be one of the top 8 man guilds in the world progression scene. The teams for NiM content will be chosen by our 2 team captains.

Our current raid days are Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 8-12 EST. For progression it is expected the full 4 hours will be used. Raids scheduled on non-raid days are at the discretion of the groups running .

Criteria for Membership:

- Responsibility - Come prepared to raid. Be on time to raid night. If you have an emergency, notify other guild members asap.
- Self-motivation - Do your part and demand excellence from your play.
- Raid Awareness - Be aware of your surroundings and raid mechanics
- Maturity - Please adjust your mic accordingly and mute yourself if necessary. Also, be aware that there may be some of us who have young children around--mind your language when appropriate.
- Availability - Members must be available on their scheduled day to raid. If you are unavailable to raid, please notify a officer or post on the forums so we can make the necessary adjustments.

Personal responsibility is something we look for and push the most in our members. It's the motivating factor that makes for a great player and guild member. Admitting your faults when they happen, not being afraid to ask for help, recognizing where you need to make improvements. All of these things lead to a guild where everyone is on even ground. We except to be able to swap players around when needed and trust they can handle themselves the same as everyone else. If you are the type of player that needs leadership and direction this may not be the guild for you.

Current Needs/Wants:

- We are currently looking for skilled DPS and Heals and a shadow tank
- Skilled players for future NiM progression (5/5 and 7/7 in previous NiM content). We are always looking to bolster our depth chart with amazing players with previous NiM experience. We are also looking for Backup-raiders for a tank position (shadow pref)
*Having raid ready alts is a HUGE plus. Please mention that in your app if you do.*

We review and retain all applications and will contact you if we are interested.

- We also allow double guilding for those in more social guilds looking for a more progression focused environment. However, it is expected you will be dedicated to Ascension raiding schedule with your main toon joining our guild. Lets not forgot you have to be an awesome player for this to be successful.

Application and Recruitment Process

To apply to Ascension, please fill out the recruitment form at www.ascension-swtor.com . If we're interested in your application you will be contacted by an officer. After a brief chat regarding the application, if all goes well, we will invite you to the guild where you will be on recruit status for a few raids.

You will be treated as a member during this time and be able to roll on loot.You will be evaluated on your play/skill, raid awareness and how well you mesh with our current group. You will receive feedback after each run to see how you're doing and if things need improving.

After a a couple of raids runs with us, if we find that you are a good fit, we will upgrade your status to member. If not, we will either ask you to remain a recruit for an extended evaluation or remove you from the recruitment process.

If you require more information please message Rialus or Crux in game.

Thank you for your time and consideration

Quick question:

The web site says you aren't recruiting, and that applicants need to be TfB HM experienced to apply. I have a group of folks: geared tank, geared mando and a mostly geared sage healer, and a geared sage dps, all looking for a new home. We were part of a team that cleared EC SM pre nerf, as well as HM EC, but we have not yet had the chance to run TfB HM. Rather than waste your time, or ours, can you clarify for me where you are in your recruitment needs?

Thanks

Hi Borg and thanks for the question

The website front page note is currently outdated and I've requested it to be changed. We are now looking to possibly get another HM TFB + NiM group to run each week. Many of us have alts that are TFB ready but have been getting no love so a third team with others members main would open this up for us.

I have talked to a few of the officers this morning and we are interested in your group and possibly showing you guys the ropes for HM TFB and NiM (when your ready). One thing though as my recruitment post says is that we do not have set teams and the officers create the groups each week and then post them for all members to see and note when they are raiding. This is one aspect that makes our guild unique for progression raiding and we find it creates a close and helpful guild.

Now what we would do initially with your group is have our most experienced raiders run with the 4 of you to see how you play your class and pick up on mechanics. If things go well and we like your guys personality and play then you would be broken up and assimilated in our weekly groups.

If your interested and ok with not always running together then message me or any of the officers in game to continue talks.

If you absolutely, positively have to have something on your head, well, i suppose you could do worse than a horse head mask. And once you get the med dosage dialed in, it might even seem...cool.

Thanks for the response Black. I'll talk to them, and see how they feel about being broken up. We work well as a unit, but I understand your desire to mix and match folks with groups. I'll get back to you either way.

Updated 2-8-2013

-Updated needs/wants and added application process

With Carnage gaming recent kill of 10 stack Dreadtooth and the Dreadful Entity, Ascension focus has now turned to farming mask + getting ready to kill 10 stack Dread. However our guild may not have the optimal raid combo to kill 10 stack Dreadtooth and thus we are possibly searching for an alliance with another guild to achieve this. The guild must have members that are almost full dread and know how to play their class. We will have the best of both guilds field the team to create a solid group and insure both guilds get the Amulet. If your guild is interested contact one of our officers or GM to discuss this further.

So yea...PVE content is on farm. Were bored so before 2.0 we will probably do 16 man NiM EC just for the lolz. Recruitment still open to exceptional players who know their class inside out.
