We believe that the members ARE what makes the guild, not the leadership
The Gryphons Aerie was built to include all people, regardless of ethnicity, culture, gender-identity, sexuality, or experience level. We welcome and encourage everyone to share any and all suggestions as well as their feedback in our efforts to strengthen our guild and move forward to everyone’s benefit. Our members are actively involved with our guild decisions.
We take great pride in helping our fellow gryphons; no task is too small or trivial. We specialize in PvE content and take time to assist guild members with a variety of goals, ranging from personal quests, Fractals, Dungeons, Map Completion, Leveling, and even Gear Acquisition. We also have role-playing members who engage in sessions periodically to build their characters’ stories and host information sessions for players interested in learning more about role-playing.
What Do We Value?
We love Guild Wars 2 and feel ArenaNet has given us a wonderful world to explore and enjoy together.
We Take a “Quality over Quantity” Approach
New recruits join on a trial basis to introduce the potential gryphon to our guild. We feel this gives everyone an opportunity time to meet with current members, create strong relationships, and determine if the guild is a good “fit” without feeling any pressure. For our role-playing members, our guild chat is kept OOC (out-of-character) to also encourage well-founded bonds of friendship. We have no class or race requirements in any facet of our guild, including our Fractal and Dungeon sessions. We do not base membership on an individual’s race, nationality, religion, sexuality or gender-identity. We base membership on the player’s behavior and treatment of others.
We Are an LGBTAIQ+ Supportive Guild
Many of our members either fall into, or support those within one or more of these categories. We do not tolerate derogatory or inflammatory messages, jokes, or other communication meant to insult others. Engaging in such behavior will result in immediate dismissal.
Who Are We Looking For?
We are recruiting players who are interested in PvE events and content - particularly Fractals, Dungeons, Meta-Events, and building our first Raid teams, in addition to role-players (role-playing is optional) to help build our stories. Our members both participate in and run structured, weekly events, along with impromptu cooperative PvE and/or RP sessions. We do not require “meta” builds and are willing to help new players learn all PvE content. We welcome all players, whether they are new to Guild Wars 2, returning after a long time away, or are an experienced veteran looking to help us build our guild to reach new heights!
We do refrain from “speed runs” or use of exploits within the PvE content. As our guild members all have goals to reach within Guild Wars 2, we do not skip mobs within our path (mobs=loot), but we also do not “vanquish” every mob within an area. Members participating in events can specify how strictly to adhere to these guidelines (for example, if a guild member needs an achievement requiring us to explore the map more fully, we will certainly do so!).
