The House of Blackrock is recruiting. We find the best recruits we get are those who find us via these forums. They seem to have researched what's available and have chosen HoB for many of the reasons here:
It is one of the oldest and largest MMORPG guilds in existance
It is well respected by long-time players in other guilds
HoB has a casual, mature atmosphere - with no pressure, no drama, just nice friendly people
Real life comes first - HoB is family friendly
There are members from all over the world and several timezones
HoB has many extremely friendly high-level players who love to nurture new players
There is almost always someone online who can answer questions and give advice
HoB maintains online forums: www.hobonline.org/hobforums - that can be used for forming/joining scheduled groups
There are plenty of maxed out crafters willing to help new crafters along and make critted items if requested
There is support for deeding, difficult instances, class quests, etc.
In LoTRO, HoB is a member of the Windfola Alliance Consortium of kinships for forming groups across 27 kins
HoB chapters are not PvP or raiding guilds per se, but we have knowledgable members who do both
We have active chapters in WoW, LoTRO, SWTOR, GW2, RIFT and more, so you can bring your guild with you when you play other games
If this sounds good to you, post on our forums at www.hobonline.org or send a tell to any of our members in-game. We'd love to hear from you!
