We are a group of close knit friends that have pushed hard to get where we are. In our more than ten years together we have struggled through numerous server transfers, faction switches and the changing face of WoW itself. From our first Prince kill in Karazahn during Burning Crusade to fathom core debacles fighting Lady Vashj, we’ve consistantly been leading progression on any server we compete on. We got our first Illidan kill together as the only sub-T6 guild on the server to do so, then moved on to conquering Sunwell, putting an end to The Lich King and every other raid WoW had to offer.
Alas, even World of Warcraft is not impervious to the demands and circumstances of real life, so after Cataclysm, we took a well deserved break. Now, with the release of Legion, we’ve returned, and are determined to recapture our Server #1 title.
Our main goal has always remained unchanged, however; for Despair to always be a community, not just some names you kill bosses with every week. To that end, our raid team has always worked with one goal; the betterment of the guild as a whole (and fun, of course). Going on 10+ years, Despair is a veritable dynasty at this point. The majority of us can now proudly claim our fellow guildmates to be real life friends as well as in-game friends. Together we not only learn and fight through in-game adversity, but help each other through hardships in real life as well.
We may not have as many server firsts as some other guilds, or as many world ranked players, but we do have Amani Warbears and more heart, determination and fellowship than anyone else playing the game today. To us, a new challenge is an exciting opportunity to bring the crew together and be united as a team under one banner, for one goal. We are absolutely thrilled about upcoming raids, not just because of the new fights and gear, but because it gives us a chance to continue being part of a family that never ceases to bring out the best in each and every one of us.
Whether you joined during the Founding in 2007 on Wildhammer, were part of our Lich King kill on Kel’Thuzad, helped tackle the Firelands and Dragon Soul or are only now finding your way to us in Legion; all that matters is you’re part of the Despair family, and this is your home, too.
