<Crossbones> About Us

After 3 years of successful joint raiding, <Crossbones> was formed on September 6th, 2010 as a merger of two successful vanilla raiding guilds; <Brothers of Night> and <Shadow Strikers> and is still led by officers of the original 2 guilds.


A brief history lesson:

Our first joint raid was a successful clear of Gruul's Lair on September 30th, 2007.
The guild members and officers became fast friends and we referred to our joint venture as SSBoN.

The decision to merge was made to benefit from the guild perk system introduced in Cataclysm (realm first level 25 guild!).
We decided on <Crossbones> because it has 'SSBoN' in the name and the <Brothers of Night> and <Shadow Strikers> guild tags were retired.


Fast forward to today:

Shadowlands is our 6th expansion since merging and the guild is more active than ever.
As the guild grows, so do our players. The average guildie age is mid to late 30s.

<Crossbones> has created an unparalleled sense of community that extends well beyond the game.
  • 2019 was our 8th annual guild party, the last 4 of which were at/during Blizzcon
  • In 2020, the guild raised $5,630 for charity between the Great Plains SPCA and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
  • Extremely active Discord with over 125 members from the guild

On December 1st 2008, we split the raid group into the two teams we have today: Aggro Whores (led by Kaligaran) and GOM (led by Tandarin) which continue to thrive on end-game content.

We look forward to the future and enjoying more content and expansions with the fantastic community that is <Crossbones>!
