Welcome to the Divide and Conquer guild website.
Our guild has been formed on April 28th 2011. And since you are wandering around on the internet and found our website, I will tell you what our guild is all about.
This guild has been created with one big goal. The goal of getting every single heroic boss this game has to offer down. We are a 10 man oriented guild and looking to have a core of roughly 10 people that will give it their ALL to get the bosses down!
That is the short story and a little bit of a reason why this guild has been formed.
If you need to get a hold of us feel free to mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org - private applications can also be done there.
We hope you enjoyed this small read and we also hope you'll enjoy your stay on our website.
Thursday 19.30 - 23.30
Friday 19.30 - 23.30

Tuesday 19.30 - 23.30
After our last talk about the guild and it's future we all seemed to agree we weren't abandoning ship until 5.2 and a day after that we did have 2 of our members do exactly that. Now I realize this has been very demotivating and honestly I found it devastating as well.
Now I think most of us have had and taken the time to think over the situation , I know I have taken my time to really think over what I wanted for the guild and due to rumours going around quickly I figured the smartest move was going to be to make a news post about it , so rumours don't have to be spread since you'll all be able to read it right here.
For the past week I have been thinking things over and after getting word of people saying the guild was dead and me getting word of other guilds litterally "stealing" our members.... it was quite a clearcut decision. I don't know about you guys but if this ship is going down .... I'm going down with it .... I've had several offers from good guilds .... better guilds then ours is and most likely will be. But I managed to turn those down easier then I had expected. Ofcourse I've thought of applying for bigger and better guilds. But what's the point? :) We've built something here ... which took us years of work. So despite the rumours there is nothing to worry about from my side ... I'll be around .. on RiD mainly for anyone needing me .. it's very easy to poke me on there and get me onto ventrilo since that'll remain up and running.
I still update MMO-Champion posts daily and Wowprogress whenever needed for our recruitment. I know some of you are in trade and I'd just like to say keep at it and don't give up ... as soon as that roster is back up .... we will be alive and kicking again. If more key members do decide to leave it's very likely it'll be gameover since that is devastating for the others .... I've heard of some having applications and offers open in other guilds ... I'd say really think those through very well .. because you're very likely to be dealing a deathblow to the guild. Especially if you're in a tanking or healing role. We'll fill those DPS spots regardless.
I know I've managed to write a huge wall of text now ... jumping from one subject into another ... and it may be very confusing ... I hope it did manage to get my point across though which is stick around , keep at it ... we'll come out of this with a raidteam even thought trade isn't always cooperative. ;)
Any further questions .. feel free to PM me through real ID or get someone to PM me through real ID and we'll get on vent. ;) ♥
GM of Divide and Conquer
For all of you in the guild with trial/raider/officer ranks please check the member forums. There is a thread up in which we need all of you to post your plans for MoP. (Character and specc wise) So let us know so we can start sorting out our MoP roster!
as most of you know by now we are trying to set up a LAN for all of us over in the Netherlands and we've started putting things together now. Today me and tero pretty much found a location for us to set things up and we have more information on the subject know if you are attending or thinking of attending please go to THIS POST
And reply to it! We have to know how many of you are attending.
Thanks in advance and see you there! :D
Instead of posting this in a calendar event I figured it'd be smarter to just post it on the main page.
Since we are starting to set up alt runs weekly I think we should start getting a few rules up regarding them so things will be going as smooth as possible.
Added rules 1.5 , 1.6 , 1.7 and 1.8 which will go into effect as of next altraid (25-03-2012)
1.0 Rules For the raid itself
1.1 Loot will be sorted out with Need-Before-Greed. Basicly you Need for MS , Greed for OS and otherwise pass the item.
1.2 The priority on altraid spots is as follows: Unsaved Raiders -> Alts -> Socials -> Pugs
1.3 The calendar signs are up for raiders only. A raider that did not sign will NOT have prio over a social.
1.4 If you want to be in on the alt raid you bring flasks and food with you.
1.5 Whichever specc you play in the raid is the specc that counts as your mainspecc. All other gear you could possibly need is offspecc gear.
1.6 You pick ONE character to gear up in alt raids and stick to that unless the setup we have requires another of your alts. Then you bring this up to the raidleader(s) and final call comes off him/them.
1.7 Essences of Destruction and enchant mats that drop should be passed by all raid members and will go into the guildbank.
1.8 Patterns that drop will be deposited into guildbank unless you have the profession for the desired pattern and do not have the pattern yet. You do need max level on the profession however. (525)
2.0 Rules for the character you join on
2.1 Make sure you have more then just basic knowledge about the character you will be playing.
2.2 The character you play should have an item level of around 385~ to make things as smooth as humanly possible. 380 is acceptable but only if you know what you are doing.
2.3 Make sure your character is fully gemmed and glyphed and raid ready.
IF YOU FAIL TO FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE RULES ACTIONS AGAINST YOU WILL BE TAKEN IN THE UPCOMING ALTRAID(S)!
Changes to these rules might be added but for now this is what things will be like. :) See you guys @ the altraid!
Patch 4.3 will be deployed on live realms this week, as usual there is a 1% chance that it will not happen if something goes really wrong but you should expect to be able to enter the Dragon Soul raid and kick deathwing's ... butt? on November 30th.
This means that if we want to be raiding we will have to be prepared to get in there HARD. So I want to urge ALL of you raiders to check out tactics. I will be posting movies in this post so make sure you check those out!
All these movies are PTR footage so do NOT underestimate them. These fights will get their final tweaks before they go live. Therefore use these videos to get knowledge of the mechanics.
2. Yor'Sahj The Unsleeping
3. Warlord Zon'Ozz
4. Hagara the Stormbinder
6. Warlord Blackhorn
7. Spine of Deathwing
8. Madness of Deathwing
Do note that these might not be the EXACT tactics we will be using. But the fight mechanics will remain the same so focus while watching these and see what you can discover about the fight mechanics.
Being prepared for 4.3 is a MUST and people that are PREPARED will be raiding with us OVER people that are NOT PREPARED. So your raidspot will also depend on your preparation for this new raid.
First of all very good job getting to 4/7 HC , let's give it our best shot and get that 6/7HC before Dragon Soul comes out. I would like you all to give it your best this way it'll give us an easier time in Dragon Soul when it comes out.
Also in a few days I will be uploading a new post on the website with tactics movies for the Dragon Soul bosses. Besides preparing for our new FL Heroic encounters I would like you ALL to check these out and be prepared for Dragon Soul which we are expecting the 7nd of December.
Last but not least here is a video of our last Alys HC kill. There is something awesome in there for Peon. And I decided to upload it for a bit of a laugh for all of us. A shit kill is however still a kill - Good job! :)
This message is ment for all the members currently in the guild going from Trial all the way to Officer and Guildmaster. Basicly over the past months we have seen people taking random breaks without notifying anyone or slacking in raids which could and/or should have been avoided. This has been on my mind for quite some time and I know several other people have notified me about it as well so I decided to do a quick write-up of my stance on this and to find out what the stance of people in the guild is on this.
Basicly the title says it all for me. Playtime is OVER. I would like this guild to be a SERIOUS guild. I do not mind if we are sitting on 2/7 HC - as long as I know everyone is giving it their ALL and going for it for 100% at LEAST. But this is not the case. People randomly take breaks without letting us know or they slack off in raids which means their performance is not where it is supposed to be. These times are OVER. I am going to start putting my foot DOWN to get this guild where I want it to be. This is why it was formed and this is why several of you joined. A lot of people in the guild are as serious as I want them to be but some of you are not. If you want to take a break? There are several things you should think of.
1. Do I mind losing my raiding spot? If it is going to be a break for 3 or more weeks you are risking to lose your raidspot. (This depends on the reason behind your break as well.)
2. Am I going to just quit without letting anyone know? Now I am going to ellaborate on this a little bit because it seems that this is becoming some sort of new fashion. If you quit without letting anyone know you are letting the other people that raided with you behind. The very LEAST you could do is let people know about your afk time. It is not just something you should feel obligated to do it is showing RESPECT. Right now we are lacking this very element I call respect. Be respectfull to the players you raid with!
If you feel it is too much effort to let us know before you quit. There won't be a coming back for you. We will open the raidspot as soon as we notice you being gone without a notice. Because if you just quit without any notice to any of the members and mainly officers you just lack the attitude that we need you to have.
I hope everyone understands the message I am trying to get accross and into your heads. If you do not I would like for you to contact me in-game or on ventrilo and I will try and explain exactly what I mean. The main thing we still require in this guild is some team spirit and a whole lot of respect toward eachother. You would not have been at this point with this progress if it wasn't for the 9 others you raid with DO NOT forget this.
Do not forget this guys. Be respectfull toward eachother. Give your fellow raiders the respect they deserve this will create one of the best raiding environments you could possibly get.
Finally after a long long time wiping on Ragnaros with roughly 40 hours of wipes put into it we finally got it down. We had a steady setup and a raid at full focus which was about time. Now with Ragnaros being down first of all congratulations to all of you with the loot and achievements. And ofcourse you all proved that you deserved the respect that you are getting. Now let's prepare for Heroic Firelands and get bosses down in there make sure you are prepared and let's show them that we know how to Divide and Conquer in the Firelands!Regards,Chevelle.
Here we are again with a small update on what we have been doing this week. Let's call it a re-cap. :)
So we ventured into Firelands thursday. Killed Beth'Tilac after roughly 3 tries. And I would like to say very good job on that. The day after that we spend a full night on Rhyolith but hes proven to be harder then we had expected. So that was one evening wasted. After that (sunday) we went for Shannox instead. Took us 3 tries again to have this guy biting the dust. So far Firelands has been pretty much a walk in the park for us I'd say. Now Rhyolith progress is gonna be smooth as well since we have our tactics up-to-date and our setup all fixed. So next tuesday expect him to go down! :)
On other news. Next wednesday the new Baradin's Hold boss is going to come out. Now I would like you guys to put a FULL STOP on pugging BH. We will start doing guildruns from that point on. So next Thursday the 7th of July we are doing a guildrun BH. Do not get saved! :)
If we carry on doing the things the way we are now. We will be on ragnaros within the next 2 weeks. So keep going guys let's push for some top notch results! :)
Also , the old raids (BoT, BWD and TotFW) are puggable now. So if you still need anything in there I suggest you pug those raids, because our focus will be on Firelands for 120%.
I have been searching the web a little bit and found a few guys that might aid us in our journey into Firelands. Watch these carefully. (Some bosses did not have videos available so I posted whatever I found on those.) If there is a LearntoRaid movie which you can watch I'll suggest that you watch those. I found those gave you the most information and to be honest. They did so in a fun way.
Alysrazor - Source LearntoRaid
Majordomo Staghelm - Source Tankspot
Ragnaros - Source LearntoRaid
We have not yet figured out a kill order so it is adviced you check all these videos before we venture into the Firelands tomorrow so please be as prepared as possible!
Let's get some kills guys! This shit doesn't look too hard.
Last but not least:
Baradin's Hold has a new boss in there as well which I'd like to do as a guild for the first few weeks or at least one week for the achieve. Here's a video explaining this boss. We will most likely not do this while we are progressing in Firelands. We will let you know when you have to STOP pugging BH.
Here's a quick newspost to let you all know what is going on at the moment. Right now what we did is we canceled all the raids that were left for this week. Due to several people not being able to make it. Now this gives us the oppertunity to do several things.
1. Step up the recruitment. Get those macros into trade a bit more often.
2. Be prepared for Firelands. Get your consumables ready beforehand and the same goes for flasks.
3. Try finding some tactics or go onto the PTR and check the dungeon journal to be aware of what the bosses will be using to get us down.
Make good use of the time we are giving you and do NOT let this go to waste! We want everyone to be there and be ready for Firelands. If you have a legit reason DO post this on the forums or MAIL it to one of the officers or myself.
Also as most of you might have already we are stepping up the recruitment bigtime. We are intending to get a second group up and running while we are in Firelands. But ofcourse this is nothing to be concerned of for the guys that are in our current main squad. We have no intentions of breaking this squad apart. We'll keep the group we have now and form a new one for group 2 when the time is right.
I think that is all for now so for the last time. Be prepared for Firelands and lets kick some ass on Thursday the 30th of June!
Edit -- Also , any questions and things we should know can from now on be mailed to our brand new gmail account.
So if you have something we should know but dont want everyone to know.
Hey guys, As most of you should know by know and I hope you do. I am very passionate about our little guild. I have explained our goals to several of you guys and I am hoping that you guys share these goals. Now due to the passion I have for the guild I decided to record our last BWD raid and experiment with Sony Vegas for a bit. Now I am done experimenting and am releasing our movie to see for the world. This movie is not in the best quality ever (first time recording and messing with settings) but I hope this gets your spirits up as much as it did with mine. Now with this released let's get a movie like this up for Firelands when it comes out and show the world what we are all about! Let me know what you think and comment etc. The movie can be found here:
Warcraft Movies(Stream) - Awaiting Approval.
The Warcraftmovies link is WORKING! Check it out!
Also I have made a small recruitment movie and put that on WCM to get us a bit of fame. :)
Hello readers and raiders,
Last night has been an excellent evening and a nice end to the first raiding week we have had as a team. Some people amongst our ranks went into the raids with us with either no or little raid experience in cataclysm BUT with some dedication and teamwork we managed to pull it off as a guild. Thursday we went into BWD and TotfW and in the end that gave us 5/6 in BWD and 2/2 in TotfW after about 2,5 hours. And yesterday (Sunday May 15th). We went into BoT confident as ever and one-shotted all four of the bosses in there. Marching on to Nefarian thinking we would get him down ... we were totally right! It took you lads 6 wipes to get that dirty dragon down and earn yourselves the titles and it even earned four of you your membership.
So I would like to say keep up the good work! Every single one of you has done an exceptional job and me and the officers would like to thank you for this. Now let's do it again next thursday! See you then!
Hello members and visitors,
As some of you might have noticed we are finally getting to the stage where the site is nearing completion. And as most of you will know since we are a guild that has only recently formed to purchase it's feeling of victory and achievement changes are bound to happen.
When the guild was formed the raid days and times we had set were as follows: Thursday,Friday,Sunday 19.30 - 23.30. Now tonight we have had a small discussion about what we were to do with these days and time and we thought the addition of a 4th day would not be a bad idea, so starting today our raid days will be Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday 19.30 - 23.30. If there are any issues with these days please send me a PM in-game or contact me via a wisper.
Now with that being said I would also like to announce one more change. The other 'big' change we have made today is the addition of a healing officer. This guy is definately no stranger to the founders of this guild and hopefully it won't be long until you all get to know him. The person I am talking about is ofcourse Wannanaz. So hereby I ask you to give him a warm welcome and make him feel at home.
The officer team.
