WELCOME! to the home of the [BEAR] squad

BEAR was founded in the early days of Guild Wars 2 on Sea of Sorrows. Our core members are friends or friends of friends from various gaming guilds or acquaintances in the past. Some of our members were from Warcraft 3's Clan NotD (Night of the Dead) based on Bored Aussies. Others came from other games such as Battlefield 2 or Counter Strike. We're a small group of players that enjoy a challenge and focus on quality over quantity. In Guild Wars 2 we do everything from PvE to WvW to tPvP. The majority of BEAR consists of Australians with some of our members being from the United States.

We are small and welcoming guild that does PvE, PVP, WvWvW, Dungeons, Dynamic Events, Open world content and more.

Contact one of us in game to inquire about joining [BEAR]. We don't require a teamspeak interview to join so don't be scared to contact us.

[BEAR] and who we're looking for

We take a rather laid back approach towards Guild Wars 2 so we don't have draconic requirements for our guild members nor do we force a regular schedule as we understand people have different obligations and things to attend to in real life. Our priority as a guild is to have fun and enjoy what we do be it PvE, WvW or something else. The only requirement is that you represent us 90% of the time, the other 10% being your personal guild banks if you have any.

In WvW, we do small ops, EB zerging or organized guild raids and sometimes join forces with other guilds such as ETA or CB. We have our serious moments but we also sometimes fool around with "dorito golem zergs" and other random activities such as cliff diving with a zerg. If you're looking for hardcore GvG, we aren't for you. If you're looking for fun WvW with mature (mostly, most of the time) players with limited stress, that's us!

Although we do a lot of WvW, the majority of us also focus on other aspects of the game such as PvP and farming dungeons, fractals, achievement hunting, trolling bad PvE guilds and world events. If you think you'll have fun with us, join us!
