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.

AND NOW, A HOLIDAY MESSAGE FROM HOLLISTER
Merry Christmas .
Despair has been the best thing to happen in my life and all our lives collectively this year. I couldn’t be more thankful for such an amazing group of people. I’ve been here since July and never have i been so positively impacted. Never have i been so moved emotionally by the love, support, tenacity and passion of a group of people. Thank you @Scrubcat for creating such an amazing environment for us to thrive in. Thank you @Moshamsplz for encouraging the re-creation of this amazing place. Thank you @feeders for your devotion to holding the integrity’s of Despair in your hands and uplifting us all on a weekly basis. Thank you. @Bereave for taking up the station of interim GM and showing us how raw and real it is to be in a place of such responsibility. You have tirelessly put so many hours into the betterment of this guild and you truly care about the well-being of us. Thank you @Starlet for enduring possibly the hardest role there is in a guild structure. You have endured the judgement of many and the shown grit in the face of adversity and stress. You have stayed strong and shown that a leader does not back down from the anxiety. You have pushed through some of the hardest of trials…you said yes to the the job that so many others would have passed on simply because it was so much to take on. I speak for many when i say thank you Stacy and to all our officers/core raiders who make Despair such a family and life-altering place. We have cried, laughed and screamed our way through the years but Despair is strongest now than ever because everyone here knows that no matter where we land on any given day, we’d do just about anything for each other in or out of this game. Much love my friends and have a Merry Christmas x
