The Guild Fever
Our primary objective is to clear top-level raiding content at a competitive and continually progressive rate. Our secondary objective is to create and maintain an environment in and out of raid that is as professional and civil as possible, and while progression is valued highly we never sacrifice common decency for the sake of it. Our third, final, and most important objective is loyalty. We value the relationships we all build within the core team and guild as a whole, as those connections and friendships not only stand the test of time but separate members of Fever from every other guild. We are Fever, and Fever has your back.
