Nearly half of our members have reached level 70 and many of us have lower level alts.
We hope to provide players with a friendly and supportive community while enjoying the game in all three aspects: role-playing, player-versus-player combat, and raiding. The Regiment is currently recruiting; interested people should fill out an application to join The Regiment.
About The Regiment
The Regiment was formed August 2006. Shortly after its inception, the Shield of Dawn was amalgamated for operational purposes with The Regiment. Since then, this new regiment has served in Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, and Alterac Valley. During the most recent Battle of Tarren Mill, The Regiment provided two reconnaissance units and a squadron of troops to assist the Alliance in holding back the Horde forces situated there.
At the core of The Regiment is a group consisting of troops serving a lighter role. These light infantry skirmishers are lightly-armed and armored infantrymen who ride into battle but dismount to fight. They provide a skirmishing screen ahead of the main body of The Regiment, harassing and delaying the enemy advance. They are considered elite units, since they require more training and the self-discipline to carry out the roles of light infantry as well as those of heavy infantry.
The Light Infantry of The Regiment consists of six companies that comprise two battalions. First Battalion is the militia unit of The Regiment. Mounted cavalry encompasses the Second Battalion.
Six officers oversee the activities of The Regiment. The two Majors, who each oversee a Battalion, are non-commissioned officers (NCOs) that serve as administrative or training personnel, and as advisors to the officers. Each company is assigned a Sergeant, who oversees the activities of all soldiers within that unit.
The Regiment seeks brave souls of all walks of life to fill our ranks. We accept members on the basis of personal merit with no consideration towards class, race, skill, or experience. Seasoned veterans and novices alike are welcome.
Please note that acceptance into The Regiment may require a brief interview unless you have a current member vouching for you; we have tried create a welcoming, friendly, yet diverse community within The Regiment and strive to maintain that feeling while acquiring new members. The interview is conducted in-game and should be considered in-character. Furthermore, it should be noted that we are a role-playing guild and anti-RP sentiment will never be appreciated.
