General Guild Info

Our Mission:

To provide a comfortable home where everyone can feel accepted and welcome for who they are regardless of race, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, appearance, religion, and whatever else the society of the real world passes judgment upon.

 

What do we value?

⦁ We believe that Real-Life comes before the game.

⦁ We love Guild Wars 2 and feel ArenaNet has given us a wonderful world to explore and enjoy together.

⦁ We wish to enjoy the game together and help all others do the same.

⦁ We enjoy succeeding as a group and playing cooperatively, while forging close bonds of friendship that go beyond just playing a game together.

 

What Makes Us Unique?

 

We Take a “Quality over Quantity” Approach.

New recruits join on a trial membership basis to introduce the potential gryphon to our guild and the culture we've created. We feel this gives everyone an opportunity to meet with current members, create strong relationships, and determine if the guild is a good “fit” without feeling too much pressure. We base our membership around a person’s character through observation of their behavior and treatment of others in accordance with our standards outlined on the website.

We firmly believe that it's the members that make 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 do our best to accommodate and support the varying needs of an individual as they arise (IE: Those with disabilities or mental disorders such as Autism, Anxiety and/or Depression, etc. as long as we are made aware of the situation in some way).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.

Our members are encouraged and rewarded for their efforts to better the guild as well through a specially designed "Reward Track". Points are earned for doing a wide variety of things together and once enough are accumulated, prizes can be claimed without losing those points. Prizes include crafting materials, gear, agony infusions, minis, etc. with the top prize being a 2000 Gem Gift Card.

We are a 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. This also applies to any other sorts of harassment too.

Everyone is encouraged to play their own way.

Everyone’s style of play is different, therefore we take a relaxed approach to it so that everyone can play their own way without feeling pressured to do otherwise. Our events always will bend a little to everyone’s needs, whether it’s a specific achievement or a personal goal (like collecting a full stack of 250 broken spoons). Each individual can relax and shine in their own way without being discouraged by things like speed runs or exploits that are essentially means to an end. Games are made to have fun, so less violence and more violets we say!

 

Who Are We Looking For?

We are recruiting players who are interested in PvE events and content - particularly Fractals/Fractal Progression, Dungeons, Meta-Events, and building our first Raid teams - who wish to be more than just a name on a roster. Our members both participate in and run structured weekly events, along with impromptu cooperative PvE adventures. We are looking for more friends who are willing to step up and lead others through the variety of content available and also are willing to put in the effort in order to prepare themselves to progress to higher tier content (ie: T3 or T4 Fractals, Raid-training, etc). We are hoping to expand our event timing with more players willing to step up who reside outside our primary time zone of US Eastern. 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!

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

We are recruiting players who are interested in PvE events and content - particularly Fractals/Fractal Progression, Dungeons, Meta-Events, and building our first Raid teams - who wish to be more than just a name on a roster. Our members both participate in and run structured, weekly events, along with impromptu cooperative PvE adventures. We would like to have even more friends who are willing to step up and lead others through the various content available and also are willing to put in the effort in order to prepare themselves to progress to higher tier content (ie: T3 or T4 Fractals, Raid-training, etc).
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!).
