The only World of Warcraft guild to be featured twice in Wired Magazine...
"...Goon Squad, native to the Mal'Ganis server (PvP), nearly pulled off a maneuver that would have made me transfer my character instantly." -Wired
"Most major city invasions I've seen are pure zergfests, with "strategy" equating to numbers. However, this video, detailing an Ironforge invasion by Goon Squad shows that you can get the job done with fewer numbers and more finesse." -WoW Insider
"In World of Warcraft, the legendary Goons of the Mal'ganis server had figured out a way to slay the revered nonplayer character that rules their in-game faction - an achievement tantamount to killing your own team mascot." -Wired
<Goon Squad> is by and large THE best guild on Mal'Ganis, if not all of World of Warcraft. We're over 1800 accounts strong, with many members having multiple level 80 characters. Within the guild we have countless crafters with every available tradeskill and even the rarest recipes. <Goon Squad> has multiple raiding teams for all levels of content farming each and every boss and their hard mode in Northrend.
Aside from all the above benefits, <Goon Squad> also has a massive Ventrilo server, six tab guild bank fully stocked with flasks, potions, elixirs, enchanting materials, over 50,000g for repairs, and the best Wrath of the Lich King raiding consumables freely available for every GOLD level and above member. We also have an extensive DKP system which has been running for four years strong and a massively active forums system.
During the Wrath of the Lich King Beta many of <Goon Squad>'s members were selected. This gave <Goon Squad> an in-depth look into the World of Warcraft expansion before even MMO-Champion or WoWInsider reported on it. Currently, with Patch 3.1, <Goon Squad> has blown through every boss in Ulduar then their subsequent hard modes including Algalon the Observer.
First and foremost, you need to select your desired membership level-
<Goon Squad>'s most basic membership. Along with a guild invite, BRONZE members get access to <Goon Squad>'s vast pool of crafters, Ventrilo server, and forums. BRONZE members also may do all Wrath of the Lich King 10 man instances pre Patch 3.1, but are capped at saving no more than 250 DKP at any given time and are allowed to get Tier 7.10 tokens.
Along with all the benefits of BRONZE membership, SILVER members are able to raid with <Goon Squad> pre 3.1 patch 25 man raids. SILVER members have their maximum DKP limit raised to 500. Upgrading to this membership level also allows members to gain Tier 7.25 tokens and participate in <Goon Squad> pre-made honor farming battleground groups.
As well as all the previously listed membership benefits, GOLD members are given priority for Tier 7.10 and Tier 7.25 tokens. The DKP limit is once again raised to 1000 total DKP, and the DKP cost of items is discounted 10%. GOLD members are allowed access to officer chat and special GOLD-only forums. GOLD members also get raiding priority over lower memberships, and complete free access to all of the consumables in the guild bank. Only GOLD members can go to Ulduar 10 man raids.
<Goon Squad>'s highest membership level. PLATINUM members of course are awarded the bonuses of all the lesser memberships, but have no DKP limit, a 25% discount on the cost of DKP items, the ability to go on Ulduar 25 raids, and a guaranteed slot in all other raids. PLATINUM members are given exclusive access to experience progression raiding in Ulduar 25 including Algalon. PLATINUM members are given moderator status on the forums, and the ability to mute lower members in guild chat and Ventrilo. Only PLATINUM members are considered for application to <Elitist Jerks>, an intense <Goon Squad> sister guild which otherwise is closed to new members.
A guild as large as <Goon Squad> would not be possible without full time guild managers. <Goon Squad> currently employs a guild master, four raid leaders, and a systems administrator responsible for keeping the forums and Ventrilo server running smoothly.
Want an item that drops, but don't have the DKP? No problem, DKP can be purchased for $1 per point. (DKP gift certificates are also available.)
<Goon Squad> features and extensive referral program, the details of which can be viewed by members of the forums. Basically, the more people you recruit, the more DKP you earn. You also earn DKP referral bonuses for the members that your referrals refer to us! All of your DKP referral statistics and DKP purchases can be viewed in real time on the <Goon Squad> DKP tracker. Purchased DKP can be used instantly as soon as your funds clear, and generally before bidding begins on an item raiders are given the opportunity to purchase more DKP.
<Goon Squad> offers a gear-buying system for non-members. Pricing is based on item level. An additional fee of $1 will be added per raid in which the item you are buying does not drop. After purshasing a slot in a raid in which the item drops you will be sent the time and date by which the raid will take place. You will not be taken to the raid until you have paid for the item. If you do not attend the raid a fee of $1 will be added. We do not accept gold as a USD substitute.
The <Goon Squad> Benefactors Club is a group for people who donate regularly to <Goon Squad>. The Benefactors Club is open to non-<Goon Squad> members. The benefits of the Benefactors Club is exclusive rights to post on the <Goon Squad> forums and they get their own dedicated sub-forum that only they can post in. <Goon Squad> has the right to remove any member of the Benefactors Club without refund.
