We take steel, an iron and bend them to our will! Fires roar, and magma boils as heat purges impurities from both our steel... an' our foes.
The steel fist of the Great Forge now bares it's massive weight down on the foes of the Dwarven Kin, as we fight to ring in a new age. An age of glory for our people once more!"
The Clan Steelgrasp has stood ready to serve Ironforge since the city was young. Since the days when it was still just the Great Forge before the city was born around her soon after.
The Clan Steelgrasp took on a role in the early days as one of the warrior-blacksmithing groups that helped work the Great Forge to arm their Dwarven kin for battle against whatever threat that may need to be dealt with! Even riding out to raid and pillage enemy settlements and mines.
Back then, the ways of the Clan were simple. But now!
Now the Clan Steelgrasp stands as a driving wheel of steel, blood and fire. A machine that never rests! With growing numbers over the years in due to birth and recruitment, advancements in technology, and further militarization the Clan has become a force not to be underestimated.
A Paramilitary capable of creating some of the most powerful weapons, armor and machines of war Kinsmen can get their hands on; as well as holding a gruesome reputation in warfare for being particularly merciless.
Quite a few have even come to view the Clan Steelgrasp as barbarians of sorts.
While the Clan Steelgrasp does walk a morally grey territory in most cases, they are known for doing a lot of good around Khaz Modan and Stormwind City in terms of charity!
Free armor and weapon repairs as well as trade craft classes, donations to local orphanages monthly, even the Winters Veil Tin Toy Drive where the Clan makes toys for underprivileged youth as a few examples of what good the Clan does for people.
The Clan Steelgrasp is a group of Dwarven Crafter-Warriors. Most of all, our goals are to do game content IN CHARACTER! This means that RP is heavily pushed, not only in the "main hubs" but also outside of the cities with guildies and friends. When questing, running player vs. player, or dungeons!
Though the Clan Steelgrasp's main focus is that of RPPvP.
We currently have a number of adversaries lined up to face. There is never a short supply! BGs being done ICly is also quite the popular activity along with War Mode RPPvP patrolling/questing.
With such a heavy focus to RPPvP there will defiantly be a push for more Rated BGs and Arenas. We will even be greatly increasing our RPPvP hostilities come Battle For Azeroth!
Clan Steelgrasp also runs a number of raids and Mythic + Keystones with fellow members of the Mead Hall, a massive united community of Dwarven and Dwarf-minded players.
And as Battle for Azeroth really ramps up we will do so so much more! Warfronts, Island Plundering and much more! All of it being done, ICly!
We even do a large number of D&D styled, D20 events with our Clan and with our friends and allies among the Mead Hall community. We even make use of DiceMaster for the D&D type experience.
We even have our own guide book for it and everything!
The Rules of Clan Steelgrasp!
Clan Steelgrasp is a (primarily) Dwarven guild on Wyrmrest Accord (US). We form a major pillar of the Dwarven community on our server, known as The Mead Hall. When dealing with other players in Mead Hall run events, you need to respect the rules of the community.
- Remember that the people you play with are all human beings with lives of their own. Try not to disrupt or delay scheduled events. Try your best to show up prepared. Let us know if you need to take long AFKs during RP sessions. Don't use hateful speech OOCly.
- We understand that you may be RPing a rude character, but that should stay in RP!
- Remember, as a member of the guild, you represent us. The image you present to people can either tarnish or polish the reputation of yourself, and the Steelgrasp Brigade.
- To elaborate on the above points, our guild policy is to not judge characters based on their pasts, but keep in mind that our guild errs on the side of Lawful Good. While not all of our players fit this bill, you will have a really hard time playing an evil character in the Steelgrasp Brigade.
- Not all of your fellow Roleplayers may know all the lore, or know how to RP, but you should try your best to accommodate them.
- While we don't expect you to give up anything IRL for the game, we do expect you to show a decent level of commitment to Steelgrasp. Try regularly attending roleplay events, checking the website, and keeping the guild's interests in mind.
- If your going to be gone for extended periods of time, just let us know, we are very understanding! Hopefuls who do not request a leave of absence before disappearing for four or more months, will be removed from guild. That said, they may rejoin at any time upon their return!
To be promoted, you must have done the following.

- Trolls, Stalkers, or Bullies. We are here to have fun and be part of a community, if you wanted drama, go find another guild. 0 Tolerance.
- Guild Drama, keep it away. If you have a problem with another guild member, whisper them, don't bring it into guild chat. If you require a moderator, reach out to an officer to help you resolve your issue.
- Heated Topics in guild chat. Try to avoid topics like... Politics, Religion, etc, as it can easily cause guild drama and will likely result in feelings being hurt.
- Apathy of Standards in Writing. We're not grammar police, nor are we spell-checkers, but WoW roleplaying does require that you write - a lot. Please strive for your best at all times. If members complain about constant lack of regard for errors, you will be spoken to. If you make no effort to learn and grow from these errors, then we will take action.
- Apathy of Standards Among Peers. Please show up to events prepared. On-time is even better, but we understand you might be busy IRL. We rather not have to pause an RP session for 30-45 minutes just to get someone up-to-speed with the group.
- Failure to log in at least once every 3 results in a strike. We expect people to log in, or notify us extended absences!
- Failure to uphold to the standards of the guild may result in a strike.
