Welcome to the home of The Vanguard!
The Best Damn Guild in Azeroth!™
Founded July 31st, 2007
Our kingdom come, we stand as one,
And we will live for always evermore...
The Vanguard is a tight knit casual pvp/pve guild located on Auchindoun (US).
We are one of the oldest Alliance guild on the server and take pride in having dedicated and loyal members who enjoy raiding, leveling, and killing Horde together.
The Vanguard is currently inactive as of Mists of Pandaria. We are hopeful that the guild will be come active again once server mergers happen, but right now we only have a handful of people playing at any given time. Any person is still interested in joining the guild you should pst an officer in game or use the in game guild finder tools.

The Vanguard Clears Throne of the Four Winds and All Tier 11 Content!
The Vanguard has finally cleared all Tier 11 content by defeating Al'Akir in Throne of the Four Winds! It has been quite the summer for The Vanguard and we have ended it in style. Thanks again to all the raiders who show up week after to week to make this progress possible. With these raids under our belts it is time to look towards the Firelands and all the challenges that it will bring.
The Vanguard Clears Bastion of Twilight!
The Vanguard has defeated Cho'gall and now has added BoT to its list of defeated raids. We are now just one raid away from clearing all tier 11 content. It is my hope that we can look at starting Fireland raiding very soon. A big thanks to all the raiders who have helped us come this far!
The Vanguard Defeats Nefarian and Turns 4 Years Old!
This past Friday The Vanguard finally defeated BWD by making quick work Nefarian! A big thanks to all the raiders who showed up week after week on our ONE raid night to accomplish this goal. We have now moved on to BoT and should hopefully clear that raid in the next week or so.
Although many will say defeating "nerfed" content is not a big deal, but I believe that they have missed the point of raiding all together. It is my opinion that raiding is all about the journey and not just the end when you are handing out the purples. Showing up every week to tackle boss mechanics and enjoy the content is what this guild does best. I think many of the raiders will agree with me that they enjoy this the most, but getting some purples at the end is always a nice cherry on top. As long as this always remains our primary focus I believe this guild will always be the best guild on Auchindoun because we enjoy what we do and being around each other.
Last, but not least, The Vanguard turned 4 years old today! It is hard to believe that many of us having been playing together for so many years in the same guild. This guild has truly been a great experience for me and I am happy that we have outlasted all the drama and craziness that is Auchindoun. You are a great bunch of guys and gals to play with and I thank you for making us the oldest active Alliance guild on Auchindoun! Here is to another great year!
The Vanguard Defeats Maloriak and Omnotron Defense System!
The Vanguard had another excellent weekend of raiding by adding Maloriak to our list of defeated bosses! The guild had also killed the Omnotron Defense System in the past week, but I slacked on posting up the picture. A big congrats to the raiders that have made this possible and hopefully we will be clearing BWD very soon!
The Vanguard Defeats Magmaw!
Raiding season is here and The Vanguard has kicked it off by defeating Magmaw with an achievement to boot! Now that most of our raiders are active again we can look forward to many more kills in the following months!
