Essence of Mercy is one of the oldest guilds on Doomhammer, and was created from the merge of Horda Femina and Hordus Masculus. Horde Femina existed since beta, a guild with only female characters (but both male and female players). Eventually many players with male characters wanted to join the guild and thus Hordus Masulus was created. For a while both guilds tried to communicate with each other via a global channel but it didn't work so well and a merge of both guilds was voted in....and Essence of Mercy was born. Otanka was the founder of the guild developing a successful, very happy, community driven, almost "family feel" to what ended up being quite a large guild. On 1st June 2011, Otanka retired and handed over the guild to her trusted friend Foxx. On 31st January 2012 Foxx passed his managerial duties in WoW to Demeanor to concentrate on SWTOR. However, SWTOR didn't take off in ways that many of us expected it to, and in July 2012 Foxx returned as GM. With his wife continuing to churn out kids Foxx couldnt spend the time on the guild that he would like and passed GM to Gorsha in June 2014. Foxx then retook the helm again as Gorsha stepped down in June 2015.
We have over 150 unique players and Essence of Mercy is one of, if not the, largest guild on Doomhammer. Alts are always welcome which is why our total membership is now over 400.
