Uncle Saurfang wants YOU to join Axiom!

Once again, Axiom is recruiting!  In addition to giving me an exciting opportunity to abuse italics, we need DPS. I, personally, am somewhat sad our raid team lacks a Fury Warrior.  However, all DPS Class/Specs are welcome, nay encouraged, to apply.

Needless to say, serious applicants should heed the timeless advice of Seri over at World of Snarkcraft.  She’s only one of our co-guildmasters after all.  But aside from that, you seriously need to run, do not walk to our forum, and particular this section to apply right NOW.

Do not delay!
