What we are:
Swedish Jazz Orchestra is a guild made by old players coming back to experience vanilla WoW. The core is made up of 26-31 year old swedish players with a lot of PvE experience in retail vanilla, including raiding the early parts of Naxx (Spider Wing, Noth, Razuvious on Lightning's Blade EU).
As you can probably tell, swedish is spoken in the guild, but we're open to players from any country as long as they are ok with a swedish guild chat. We have a large number of norwegian players, and they are a major part of what makes this guild great.
The guild was created two days after server release, and was always intended to be a raiding guild on the server but we didn't start recruiting until the leadership had reached level 60. Therefore it took us some time to start raiding, but we've always been a stable guild that doesn't get small things get in the way of the bigger picture. We work towards long term goals, and give new players in the guild a chance to prove that they want to be part of that.
We've been here since the start, seen many guilds disband, and we're still here clearing all of the content that's available. That's what's important to us, and that's our main goal with the guild. We want to become to most stable guild on the server.
So if you're looking for a stable swedish alternative, Swedish Jazz Orchestra might be what you're looking for.We can offer you 47 minute clears in MC and 98 minute clears in BWL. Fast, smooth, lootraids.http://realmplayers.com/RaidStats/InstanceList.aspx?realm=NRB
What we're actively looking for right now:1 Resto Shaman
to prepare for AQ40 raiding. We will also be more likely to accept another class who has a resto shaman alt willing to play on their alt for a specific boss fight.We will consider other classes as well, so if yours isn't listed here there's still a chance we have a spot for you. New players won't be benched for raids, we always give new players a chance to prove that they are the right player for us.Raids:
We are, and we strive to always be a guild with steady raid progression.
We're raiding 3 days/week, but raiding so few days means we expect everyone to come fully prepared. This means being at the location of the raid in time, with everything in your life taken care of and with the appropriate pots and elixirs. We have no interest in dealing with slackers. A big part of enjoying raiding is to not have to babysit 35 players who come expecting everyone else to do the lifting.
Days for raiding used to vary from week to week, but we've now started using Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays as the main days for raiding. ZG will be played on offdays, or main days when the content has been cleared.
Raidstart is 19:00, and we end the raid at 23:00.How to join us:
Go to http://www.sjoguild.com/forum
and write an application or whisper Xenone ingame for a chat. We want the players who apply to us to be in Pre Raid BiS, or working hard to get it. But there are still a lot of potentially good players leveling, so I'll add that a fast leveling player can still take a spot in our guild if he/she plays the right class and intends on farming 5-mans for Pre Raid BiS as soon as he/she hits 60.
