    Preying Mantis Recruitment






    Preying Mantis is an end-game, goal oriented kinship. Our mission simple: kill mobs, and take their stuff. Our success is directly related to our group cohesiveness and coordination while raiding and running instances. We consider ourselves very dedicated to the “end game” of LotRO. Our track record should hopefully speak for itself as we have been among the first to kill: Mordorith, Thorog, The Watcher v2 & v3, The Mistress, and the Lt. of Dol Guldur. While we’ve also achieved a few other noteworthy kills such as the only US Guild to 6 Man the Watcher (Pre SoM), and we we’re the first guild worldwide to down Blind One Hardmode.

    Currently we have an incredibly strong core of players, and we're looking to add a few more skilled players to rounds out our Kinship. Below there is a recruitment needs board, which is more of a guideline for what we would prefer, however recruitment will never fully close. We always believe that when the right players come along, we're going to find room for them. If you're looking to raid at a high level, this is the place to be.

    Loot Distribution:

    Preying Mantis uses a Zero Sum DKP system. Our system isn't a perfect zero, but we try to keep it as close as we can. If you have no idea what a zero sum system is, click here to read all about it. If you still have questions, feel free to contact an officer or myself.

    What We Raid:

    Official Kinship Raids will only take place at level cap. We do run older raids and instances, just not during our raid times.

    Recruiting Needs:

    Captain: High
    Rune Keeper: Open
    Lore-Master: Open
    Champion: Open
    Burglar: Open
    Guardian: High
    Hunter: Open
    Warden: High
    Minstrel: High

    How to Apply:

    Applying is easy; all you have to do is go to our website and register an account if you don't already have one. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to fill out our application. From there, we will contact you and set up a few dates to run a few things with you to gauge play style, skill, and how well you fit in with our Kinship.

    If you’re still wondering what may be different about Preying Mantis from all of the other End Game Kinships on Elendilmir, that’s something you’re going to have to come and find out yourself.

    Any addition questions can be directed to myself through these forums, Preying Mantis' website, or ingame via Tells or Mail.

    Happy Hunting,

    Preying Mantis

    I don't ever plan on leaving for good; I really enjoy this game for what it is. It suits my personality and time availability extremely well. But thanks for the WB!

    I don't know that there was a missing link, but it's definitely nice to have the old PM tag back under my name, it simply feels like home.

    Today I was suddenly seeing Preying Mantis members all over the place in Galtrev. Was thinking, "My goodness, looks like the A Team is back."

    Recruitment has gotten off to a smashing start, we've brought in over a dozen folks. But we're still looking to add a few more quality players. Specifically we're looking to add 2-3 Tanks, A Captain, and another Lore-Master. All other classes are still welcome to apply, as we're looking to potentially expand to two full raiding groups for RoR.

    Just was catchin' up with Figgy yesterday when I noticed. Welcomes back PM! Excited to see the ole name return. So many of my Elendilmir buddies applied/accepted that even I'm considering applying my LM this time around. After six years of loremastering, I am so very stoked for mounted combat to come at long last. I'm lovin' Rohan in beta so far, I just know I'm gonna be puttin' in yet more hours per week, might as well try and make 'em good.

    Wether or not it happens, wb PM, I look forward to seeing your numbers running around ME again, new and old.

    We're specifically looking to add a Guardian and Captain at this point; however all classes are fully encouraged to apply.

    Thanks Jaadz! We certainly miss having you around.

    But, the main post has been updated once again. At this time, recruitment is slowing down, however all classes will remain open to everyone. We will always be looking to add exceptional players to our group.

    Just a quick recruitment update: We're currently looking for another main hunter to even out our raid group. Any other classes are still welcome to apply.
