About Us:
http://www.tupantechno.org
Tupan Techno is a premiere end-game progression guild on Lightbringer (US-PVE). We are currently one of the top Horde guilds in the US progression-wise.  We raid 5 nights a week if content is not cleared to completion. Tupan Techno is the oldest Horde guild on Lightbringer and has always been the #1 guild in Horde progression. We choose to remain a relatively small and close-knit group in order to support a stable and trustworthy raid environment as we continue to progress through new content.

Although our main priority is raiding, many of our members are eager to participate in PvP, rep grinds, and heroics. Many of the server's first High Warlords also reside here as well as many Arena Gladiators.

Tupan Techno was originally founded by a group of Bulgarians hence the unusual guild name. It was the culmination of the top players from the top Horde guilds around the time The Burning Crusade was launched.  Most of the guildies currently reside on the west coast or east coast in the US, but we do have a few international folks from all over the world as well in guild.  We have long sustained a stable raiding environment thanks in part to its current leadership which has been in place since we were in Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep.

Progression:

Raiding schedule:
We raid Sun & Tues ~7-10:30 and Wed from ~8-10:30.
Once content is cleared, remaining nights are offnites.
We emphasize making our raid time as efficient as possible. 

Loot distribution:
Tupan Techno distributes loot via Loot Council. Council members vote based on attendance, raid performance, degree of upgrade and submitted prioritized wish lists. Recruits are eligible for loot during their trial period.

Requirements:
  • Extensive raiding experience
  • 90% attendance
  • Extensive knowledge of class and spec
  • Always carry consumables
  • Ability to keep a positive attitude and desire to achieve—including server firsts
  • Not afraid to speak up and contribute, but can take constructive criticism
  • Well-geared (25 man heroic+) with proper enchants and gems
  • 18 years of age or older! This is an adult guild and the guild chat is uncensored

Tupan Techno is looking for AMAZING players for Cataclysm!
Do not apply if you have been gone for X # of months and have just recently decided to come back and want to be carried, do not have any hardmode experience in 25s, or equivalent hardmode gear.

If accepted:
If approved, you will be invited as a “Recruit” for an evaluation period.  The trial period typically lasts 2 to 4 weeks depending on attendance, performance, attitude and other factors.  At the end of your trial period, you will either be promoted to "Raider" or informed that you have not passed your trial.

Recruitment Needs
We are looking for a few extra people to round out our MoP roster. We'd like a shaman that can swap enhance/elemental, a resto/moonkin, a mistweaver monk, and a holy/ret paladin.
