Since being created back in Feb 2005 we have been a Thunderhorn alliance guild. However, due to the steady decline in both community and numbers we have decided to move to Ravencrest, a server with 4 times the population of Thunderhorn in order to improve recruitment and group experiences. If you were/are in the Highland Warriors and were not aware of this due to absense or just not reading the chat... then please follow. If you were a member and would like to come back, thats where we are now, we hope to see you there!


Welcome to the web site of the Highland Warriors.
The Highland Warriors are (almost) 14 year old alliance guild on the Ravencrest(EU), formally Thunderhorn, server whose aim is to enjoy the wonderful world of WOW in a fun and friendly guild. We are a level cap casual raiding guild. Our main guild focus is around the people, not the epics and our recruitment policy reflects this. If you are an epic seeking glory boy, Google is here, good luck. If you want to play with friends, have fun in a relaxed adult environment, enjoying wipes and kills, feel free to make an application here.
While we are casual we do still expect our members to work on their stuff and turn up when they say they will, although theres no attendance requirements.

I've been in the Highland Warriors since it was created back in Feb 2005, no breaks, no quits, no gaps. We are a steady guild even if the numbers fluctuate over time :) We hope to see you around!
