Who we are:
On a player v player server, it's not unusual to find guilds whose names reflect the attitude of omnipotence the leaders would like to portray to the members of the opposite faction. While it can be something to live up to, it can also create a lot of internal drama as those guilds tend to attract younger people who really identify with the guild name. Such were the conditions on Ursin in June of 2007 when the Nemeton was formed. Our guild founder wanted a more mature, laid back environment where the focus was on adult discussion, intelligent discourse, and raiding. We became a haven for the sort of folks we wanted to attract and were instrumental in creating lasting friendships with other guilds of the same nature. In March of 2013, dismayed with the decay of population and raiding on Ursin, The Nemeton moved to Doomhammer. Our guild is flourishing with two 10-person raid teams, one doing heroic progression with the other poised to join them in that pursuit.
Vahe, a restoration shaman, has been guildmaster since December 2008 at the start of the Lich King expansion. Creating a strong group of officers, she’s built a dedicated membership through the struggle to gain the top of the Ice Crown Citadel, to survive the sundering of Cataclysm, the rise and fall of Garrosh Hellscream, and now to explore the changing of the horde guard again as we watch the ascendance of Vol'jin and the growth of Anduin Wrynn.
A mage with a penchant for hurling balls of fire at sometimes unsuspecting Horde, you can often find Alkagari gleefully melting faces in battlegrounds or raids. He’s always willing to lend a hand with the mundane things like bank transfers or the trickier questions of proper mage badassery.
Nekked. Bear Nekked. Suave and cool ... hanging around the cocktail lounge or chasing ladies of dubious repute in dungeons of Blizzard design, our favorite bear tank has set high standards of excellence for other feral and guardian druids as well as all the assorted heroes he leads through Pandaria raids. Known for the better part of a decade as Elrohir@Ursin, he’s now Bearnekked @Doomhammer. Hide your wimmenfolk.
Twelvepeers, the holy protection paladin; Gaillan, the holy terror warlock; Twelvepandas the mistweaver windwalker monk ... while it might seem confusing to most, to us it's very clear that '12' is one of the best utility players around. Healing, dpsing or teabagging Bearnekked - 12 brings his A-Game ... and a fraps program because one day, Youtube needs to have the teabag party set to music and released into the twisting nether.
A rogue with a passionate interest in pacifism, Chupala is likely the most excited about our transfer to the player v. environment realm of Doomhammer. Now he can frolic through the forests gathering flowers and meander the mighty mountains in search of ore without fear of horde curtailing his petal-filled pleasure.
Like the Thor of legend, Kamynary is the guy who can stand at the maelstrom of a fight and emerge unscathed, searching for another foe to vanquish with all that pent up energy. Kamy has been with the Nemeton for stages of various Blizzard expansions and never ceases to be anything short of electrifying.
A master of of thunderbolt throwing and lightning hurling, Salammar was first introduced to The Nemeton years ago as the warlock Salazzar. Through class changes and requested specialties switches, Sal has hung in to become one of our steady raiders, rockin' the dps charts each week.
You've seen him cruising the streets of Stormwind ... pimped out Grummle ride thumping loud bass, the gnome ladies oohing and sighing. Word is that he's got a large lady-pleasing ... fireball. Srluke is a legend in the making!
Since our arrival on Doomhammer, Kylma has been instrumental in introducing us to people who now help form the backbone of our guild. He’s the first to offer planning or material help for whatever endeavour the guild needs. He’s one of those people that make this guild feel like home to our new members.
What we are:
Loosely themed around druidic culture, we pride ourselves on being a friendly group of adults who take pleasure in helping fellow guild members as they gear up, level, or go about their daily farming. Our guild chat will offer lots of grins; the raid teams and their leaders will satisfy your need for progression at the same time as proving a fun environment. We like the challenge of trying to figure out how our raid composition can work against the latest Blizzard boss mechanics, even if we're not the ideal make-up.
We expect raiders to show when they sign up for any particular raid. We also know that juggling work schedules, kids, vacations, homework and hobbies can sometimes derail plans. We will ask that you provide contact information (posted only in our officer forums) in the event you're not online at raid time, so that we can determine if we need to replace you in raid. Our raid invites go out fifteen minutes ahead of our first pull â€¦ you should be ready to go.
Just what is a nemeton anyway?
Close to earth and nature, druids observed the waxing and waning of seasons within a grove of sacred trees, oak being chiefest in the hierarchical importance of woods. This circle of trees, which would bear witness to the festivals marking the march of seasons, was called a nemeton.
Just as the ancient druids observed holy rites and celebrations in the grove by the light of the moon, so does the world tree on our tabard symbolize a collection of stalwart people observing the formation of something equally exceptional ... friendship.
