We are a mature, friendly alliance guild of semi-hardcore players dedicated to end-game raiding. Our guild members have long standing friendships (many go all the way back to Vanilla) and our officers have extensive experience in both guild and raid leadership.
We raid, run heroics & fight in battlegrounds together. We work towards achievements together. We help each other farm. We try to keep drama to a minimum. We respect each other and most importantly - WE HAVE FUN!!!
How did Focus begin? With Aylalya and Hrist - two close friends who built Magisterium, a successful Alliance US-Bloodscalp raiding guild in TBC. In WotLK, when Magisterium had Naxx and Ulduar (10 and 25) on farm status, the friends decided to server transfer to US-Durotan and became Smackabootae (Aylalya) and Naerys (Hrist).
After playing in several guilds without finding one that fit their own raiding philosophies, Smackabootae and Naerys decided to form Focus - a guild that would focus on end-game content with a tight-knit core of quality players who would work together as a team,be prepared for and be dedicated to PvE raid progression into ICC and beyond.
Focusunderwent a leadership change when Smackabootae decided to leave the game, but we continued on through ICC progression with both 25 and 10-man content under the leadership of Deathiron. Blizzard changed to the new shared raid-lockout system and we decided that it would be better serve the guild as a whole for us to drop our 25-man progression and focus on 10-man progression so we could have several groups with varying schedules that would let more members raid.
We welcomed the Cataclysm expansion and our raid groups quickly began zoning into BWD , BoT and Tot4W. By July 2011, we had four 10-man raid groups progressing steadily. Then the guild encountered a few speedbumps when our guild leader Deathiron needed to take time off from the game.
In August 2011, Focus was re-organized, re-grouped and re-focused as Gooseman became our new Guild Leader. The guild rededicated themselves to progression raiding, went deep into the heart of Firelands and onward into Dragon Soul to face Deathwing himself. By the Summer of 2012 we had *FIVE* main character raid groups clearing DS each week.
