Spoken Languages Edit
The members speak in the Filipino native tongue Tagalog. However enable to co-exist with others who aren't familiar with the language, English is mostly spoken inside and outside the guild environment.
Guild members are not required to know Tagalog but it is recommended to understand the chatter in the guild channel as well as Ventrilo.
History of the Guild Edit
KATIPUNERO was formed on the 10th of February, 2009 - which was a merge from two separate RL friends guilds. The individuals who formed this guild found each other with the commonality of having Filipino heritage.
After several weeks of running and gearing through 5-man heroics and joining PUGs 10-man raids, the guild decided that it was time to expand and grow it's numbers. This is so that the guild can independently run 10-man raids and eventually 25-man raids to fully enjoy the current and upcoming contents.
As a result the KATIPUNERO website was officially established on Thursday, March 6, 2009. In addition, recruitment statements were posted on forums.
The recruitment effort has proven to be a success. Since the inception of the guild website and forum postings, there has been a steady infusion of Pinoys transferring from different servers, hailing from all over the United States, Canada and even the Philippines. More and more Pinoys joined all through the month of April.
On May 5, 2009, KATIPUNERO conducted it's very first Heroic Obsidian Sanctum, Sarth +1 and completed it with only 22 people. The following week, on May 11, 2009, the guild cleared it's first Heroic Naxxramas with only 21 in the raid. A couple of weeks ends later, on May 22, 2009, Heroic Naxxramas was designated on farm status due to its completion with ease of 4.5 hours.
KATIPUNERO is now refocusing to be a progression-based raiding guild yet still the same friendly Pinoys.
Guild Name Origin Edit
The question usually arises when one is intrigued by the guild name, "What does Katipunero mean?"
A KATIPUNERO was a Filipino rebel belonging to the Katipunan, a Philippine revolutionary organization founded in 1892 by Filipinos, which aimed to gain independence from Spain.
