As of February 7th 2013, the Evil Dead is currently the largest Horde PVE and PVP guild on the Bronzebeard (US) server when taking into account total number of characters, average number of individual accounts, and overall guild activity. Current numbers for the guild can always be found on our Battle.net Armory roster page or on the Official Guild Roster.
As a 835+ member, level 25 guild, the Evil Dead continually strive to be the best, not just the largest, Horde guild on the Bronzebeard PVE realm. We pride ourselves in being the most friendly, helpful, and active guild you will find on the server with the ultimate goal of having dungeon & raids for virtually all levels occurring many times daily.
As of February 7th 2013, the Evil Dead has 835 in-game characters with an average of one main and two alts per member, which averages to about 278 individual accounts. 145 characters (or 17%) are capped at level 90. 277 characters (or 33%) are between levels 85 and 89, 45 characters (or 5%) are between levels 80 and 84, 52 characters (or 6%) are between the levels of 70 and 79, leaving 316 characters (or 38%) below level 70. These incredible numbers place exactly half of our guild at level 85 or higher!
Pruning our roster to eliminate players who are inactive for over 30 days takes place about once a month.
Our Guild Leader is Grimis, Raid Team coordinators are Frozenhades, Olythia, and Ovulater. The Guild Webmaster is Frozenhades. Our dedicated team of officers consist of Argonius, Asur, Bonz, Brontaku, Darkscourge, Evildeadite, Frozent, Genj, Misfitfiend, Nepharius, Olythia, Ovulater, and Zombie. The majority of our members are from the United States.
The guild charter was created and submitted by Grimis on July 13th 2011. Grimis founded the guild with the view that everyone playing World of Warcraft, no matter how experienced, should have the opportunity to play in a large, quality, high level guild. Players should not have to raid on a daily basis, should not have to know ever boss fight in the game, and should not have to be fully geared to obtain or maintain membership within a guild. A guild is meant to be fun and we believe that everyone should have access to membership and then let the guild members actively decide for themselves what activities they would like to perform frequently with other members (leveling, PVP, raiding, dungeons, achievements, farming, etc.). In other words, the guild is what the members make it, not what one person believes it should be.
This temperament has proven to be successful as the guild is still growing in numbers at a fast rate and has a very high level of leveling, dungeon, and raid activity.
Our guild is open to all as we do not have the stringent requirements that many other guilds on the Bronzebeard (US) server impose on their potential members. However, to ensure an active guild and to keep our numbers from overflowing with inactive players, we have several very simple recruitment & membership policies that we must enforce. These rules are aimed at maintaining a peaceful, active, productive, and mutually beneficial guild.What We Do NOT Require of New Members:
- We do not have character level requirements or restrictions of any sort.
- We do not have class or role restrictions.
- You are not required to have extensive game, dungeon, or raid experience.
- We do not have Item Level (ilvl) or Gear Score (GS) requirements.
- We do not have restrictions on the number of alts that you have or what guild(s) they belong to.
- We do not have restrictions based on a player's age, race, nationality, or religion.
What We DO Require of New Members:
- To view & uphold our guild's rules & guidelines.
- All members are asked to maintain a reasonable amount of activity within the game & guild or they may be removed from the guild. Even if it is nothing more than saying hi and being sociable, please try to maintain some level of activity.
- Treat other guild members with respect. Harassing, purposely annoying, or otherwise trolling other members will not be tolerated.
- With the mixed age group in our guild, excessive use of obscenities on the web site, web site chat, Ventrilo, and in-game guild chat will be grounds for removal from the guild and all related functions.
- Remain active within our dedicated Ventrilo voice chat server while in guild dungeon or raid groups if at all possible. Even if you do not have a microphone, your speakers will still allow you to listen.
Players may seek recruitment into the Evil Dead using a number of different methods as outlined below...
- Ask any of our guild members in-game as all members are able to recruit.
- Use the in-game Guild Finder tool.
- You may register on this site and create a new post in the Recruitment Forum.
- You may PM a guild member within the forums as a last resort. If possible, please use the in-game tool and/or create a forum post instead.

Dungeons, Raids, and PVPEdit
We are not a dedicated raid guild but strive to organize vanilla, TBC, WotLK, Cataclysm, & MoP raids as frequently as member availability & interest permits. We have several members who dedicate a portion of their time to organizing these raid functions and make excellent use of the in-game calendar system to keep other members informed well in advance.
The Evil Dead also have a custom, advanced, raid & event manager built into the site known as The Evil Dead Raid Manager. This utility is freely accessible to all members of the website, guild members and non-guild members alike. It allows its users to create, organize, customize, and sign up for raids, dungeons, battlegrounds, arenas, and more.
With the number of members and the level of activity shown by our members, guild dungeon runs has always proven to be one of our strongest points. Our members individually organize guild dungeon runs many times throughout the day without restrictions such as role, item level, or knowledge of the dungeon.
The Evil Dead is not a dedicated PVP guild but does have a tight-knit group of members who frequently queue together for battlegrounds and arena matches. For those who are interested in PVP but are not geared for it, many of our members have reached max level in tailoring, leatherworking, blacksmithing, jewelcrafting, enchanting, and inscription, all of which are able to craft suitable starter gear for PVP. Players may be required to supply the materials needed while some may assist you by either supplying the mats or helping you obtain them.
