Conclave of Darkshire is a friendly, but progression focused raiding guild on a number of MMORPG's, currently focused on Wildstar. We were formed in 2005, initially as two separate guilds, Witches of Darkshire and Rangers of Darkshire under one leadership that later merged in 2009.
Conclave sets itself apart from most guilds in that it blends two normally incompatible themes; progression raiding and a friendly, casual mindset. It does this by focusing primarily on ensuring that the widest proportion of its members as possible are having the most fun possible, and is never prepared to sacrifice good people on the altar of mix/maxing.
Despite this Conclave regularly achieved top 5 server spots in World of Warcraft. We achieved this by ensuring an inclusive philosophy where a core of truly excellent players actively helped and coached newer players in becoming the best they could be. The guild is lead by a team of Officers who have been involved in online community management for over 20 years, bringing an unrivalled experience in management, logistics and empathy which is very rare in the industry.
Conclave largely works by recommendation only, and we are stringent in our admissions. All new applicants will be asked to come for a chat with one of the Officers to ensure that they understand and fit in with the guild's ethos. This is less about identifying the most hardcore players and far more about ensuring that the friendly, community focused atmosphere is never put at risk in the pursuit of progression.
While Conclave is an adult guild, we are happy to accept the children of existing guild members. As a result we look to our members to be polite, respectful and inclusive to their colleagues at all times.
