The 2016 guild party was a great success. Photos of this week’s revelries are available in the Guild Party 2016 archive. Stop in for a peak!
Friday evening started with a delicious dinner compliments of Chef Keilanaa and a delicious made from scratch cheesecake desert compliments of Amira. Party goers enjoyed ice cold liquor around a warm bonfire as we introduced our newest members to the 5 year tradition of the Iron Knights festival. The porcelain God claimed his yearly sacrifice Friday evening as Puntardo knelt in prayer. Luckily Punt was the only member required to pay this terrible toll in 2016.
Saturday morning booted up with Keilanaa doing what she does best, spending time in the kitchen. We enjoyed a wonderful continental style breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon. ATV arrived shortly after noon and introduced the guild to Mrs. ATV, possibly the only woman on earth that could deal with him for an extended period of time. Stories of days past were shared as we had lunch at possibly the best pizza place on Earth.
Saturday evening as the beer began to flow freely, attendees enjoyed a wonderful barbecue beside the fire. We spent our Saturday evening enjoying an explosive fireworks display and flexed our own depravity with a game of Cards Against Humanity. Classes were picked for the Legion expansion, and raiding plans were laid out.
Plans are already being laid for the 2017 Iron Knights festival.
Several members have tossed out the possibility of renting a condo in the Carolina’s or Virginia for a week on the beach. The idea of renting a large cabin near Gatlinburg Tennessee has also been mentioned. I spent a week in the Smokey Mountains earlier this year and there was always something to do and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. Regardless of which way we go, I think the 2017 party is going to be THE party to attend.
Recruiting for World of Warcraft Legion is open. Please take a moment to look over what we have to offer and decide if we are the right place for you.
Are you tired of guild hopping through World of Warcraft?
Has your definition of what a guild should be changed since the day when you joined your first guild in Vanilla? Does smashing pixels, while a priority for you, not mean as much as the people you’re smashing them with? Are you looking for that elusive guild family that will accept your dirty memes, vulgar language, crass humor, and support you through real life events and real life occurrences? We just might be the guild for you!
Iron Knights is an adult-only, casual/semi-hardcore raiding guild on the Tichondrius (PVP-PST) server. We are currently in search of a few quality raiders, and we are always in search of quality guildies who have little interest in raiding but want to be a part of a tight-knit WoW family.
Our guild was formed in 2008 during the Burning Crusade expansion, with many core raiders having WoW experience dating back to release. Most of our raiders have families and jobs and we have quite a few couples in guild. Our goal is to stay current on Heroic progression (AoTC) while working around real life and having fun together in WoW, across other games, and at our annual “real life” guild party.
Our Raiding Info:
–Currently on break until pre-legion patch–
Progression: 13/13 Normal, 13/13 Heroic Hellfire Citadel
Raid Times: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 9:00-Midnight EST (6:00-9:00 server)
Loot: Officer-run loot council
What we are looking for in a raider:
Thick skinned players who aren’t easily offended by crass/off-color humor.
Dedicated individuals with great raid-awareness.
Great players with great attitudes and a great sense of humor who are tired of guild hopping and want to find a forever home.
What makes us different than many other raiding guilds:
Longevity: We’ve been around since The Burning Crusade with much of the same leadership in place.
Ability: We’ve cleared heroic mode each tier since The Burning Crusade.
Understanding: Most of our guild is either in college or working adults with families. We understand real life schedules and family situations.
Relaxed Atmosphere: Due to the flexibility of current raiding our attendance policy has relaxed allowing players to care for their real life obligations without the repercussions of hardcore guilds.
Camaraderie: Yearly guild festival held in the United States. This allows attendees to meet their fellow raiders and participate in something bigger than a World of Warcraft raid, while building lifelong connections.
Priority raid needs:
Ranged DPS: Boomkin – Mage – Shadow Priest
Melee DPS: Closed
We will consider all quality applicants, so if you feel that you would be a good fit for us (raider or non-raider), do not hesitate to contact an officer to schedule a Ventrilo interview, add our battle tags, or apply on our guild forums.
