About Us

Philosophy and Culture

After more than seven years under the same senior leadership, we feel comfortable staking our claim as one of the pioneers of successful three-night raiding.

Our members have families, careers, studies or other hobbies 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 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 strategy threads 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 we’re slaying internet dragons together and that all of the above is relevant only if we’re having fun. We laugh together, go to Blizzcon together (those who can make it) and generally enjoy each other’s company, whether in Mumble, forums or in game.

Schedule and Expectations

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 during our same Mythic schedule within our allotted 12 hours

  • Player feedback is fact-based and critical

  • Loot system: EPGP

  • 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


History

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.

In Tier 13, despite the onerous class-stacking requirements of Heroic Spine of Deathwing, Temerity accomplished the US 36th kill of Heroic Spine of Deathwingstrong> and quickly moved on to get the US 31st kill of Heroic Madness of Deathwingstrong>. Along the way, we also were fortunate enough to attain US 24th Heroic Ultraxion and US 28th Heroic Warmasterstrong>. Temerity's progress in Tier 13 was astounding, and our overall improvement over the length of Cataclysm was remarkable.

Temerity only grew as a guild in Mists of Pandaria. With a strong US 19th rank for both Throne of Thunder and Sha of Fear, Temerity finished Siege of Orgrimmar asUS 15th.

With such a strong end to Mists of Pandaria, Temerity is very excited to be heading into Warlords of Draenor. We are still dedicated to a 12-hour, three-night schedule with the focus of conquering challenges ahead while still maintaining an enjoyable atmosphere.
