<Stoic> is one of Bonechewer's oldest guilds; we have been active since vanilla. We are on the Alliance side on the US-Reckoning battlegroup. Stoic is a group of gamers primarily focused on mythic progression raiding in World of Warcraft.
We are a LBGTQ-friendly and inclusive guild, and value teamwork, respect, and being awesome. We are dedicated to building a community that supports each other and allows for lasting friendships within the guild.
If you have friends already in the guild, or are interested in making new friends with us, contact any officer about joining as a Friends & Family member.
Otherwise, if you are interested in mythic raiding, we ask that you put in an application using the form below. Please read further for more details!

Stoic has two raid teams:
Wipes at 1%(11/11 Mythic) - This raid team is the more progression-focused of the two. Its members' goal is to completely clear each raid tier before the next one is released. We expect a high level of dedication and attendance from its individual members, but are still accommodating of players needing to take a night off occasionally. We want players who enjoy the challenge of cutting-edge mythic raiding, who have a strong personal drive to improve, and the perseverance to commit to clearing out each raid tier.
We keep our roster lean, so that we don't have to bench many players. While we consider ourselves hardcore, we don't do split runs, nor do we require players to switch to the "best" class at the time. We do however expect players to excel at their class, to understand how to optimize their talents for different encounters, and to learn how play multiple same-role specs of their class.
This team raids Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. 8 pm - 11 pm CST (server time), and is currently recruiting:
Death Viper Assassins(10/11 Mythic)This semi-hardcore raid team is a great fit for players who are interested in mythic raiding, but may not have as much prior raiding experience. While we do raid three nights a week, we are willing to work with players with busier schedules. Our raids are generally light-hearted, and we balance the demands of mythic raiding with having fun.
Players are expected to maintain a solid knowledge of their class, come prepared to each raid with appropriate consumables and knowledge of the raid encounters, and be punctual. A positive attitude, good listening skills, and ability to learn from mistakes are qualities we look for in our raiders.
This team raids Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays. 8 pm - 11 pm CST (server time), and is primarily recruiting solid DPS players, with our most in-demand classes listed below:
A solid ranged dps - preference to: Moonkin/Shadow Priest/Warlock(s)
A mistweaver monk, or disc priest.

Both raid teams look for players who have strong raid awareness, can consistently execute fight mechanics well, and are tenacious in the face of multiple wipes. Knowledge, expertise, and skill in your class and role are the next important criteria.
The raid leader and other officers provide constructive feedback as needed. When mistakes are made, we help the team to understand what went wrong and how to fix it for future attempts. We prepare the team by directing players to existing quality guides and videos, as well as creating our own resources. We believe in holding players accountable, and set goals to ensure that each of the teams' players are equally ready for the upcoming challenges.
When a player is struggling, we will work with them to overcome their challenges. We teach players to assess their performance using logs and videos. We encourage players to collaborate with and mentor each other, and each team supports each other.
We expect that players are able to make the majority of these raid times. But we are understanding and reasonable about real life demands such as family, school, or work. Communication and honesty about scheduling conflicts (and other concerns) affecting the player allows us to figure out good solutions
We distribute loot via loot council and decisions are made based on merit, attendance, value of upgrade and length since last upgrade. We balance awarding individual accomplishments together with making the best decisions for the team. We have minimal loot drama and like to keep it that way.
If you think you'd be a good fit with our team, and are interested in foiling Sargeras' plot in Antorus, please apply today!
