- Have you read and understood the Guild Rules?
Yes, i have read the rules and fully understand them.
- What is the name, class and preferred roles(s) of the character you are applying with?
Character name : Aketu
Class : Mage
Role : DPS
- What are your favourite things to do in WoW?
Throughout my history of playing world of Warcraft i have always been an avid raider and fan of PVE content. I find them most enjoyable with a good solid guild. I enjoy and thrive on the teamwork needed to down some of the more challenging boss fights. I have also dabbled in some PvP during my time playing World of Warcraft however only usually do this now when there isn't much else to do. I have recently taken a vivid interest in the lore and the world of warcraft books and enjoy spending my time reading up on the history of the Warcraft universe.
- How long have you been playing WoW?
I have been playing Warcraft for the best part of 9 years now. I joined as wrath was released but spent my time slowly leveling my first character in order to learn about the lore of the game for what it is. Cataclysm and Mists were my prime raiding years with that slowly falling off in WoD due to a lack of interest in the expansion content.
- What are your previous guilds and why did you leave them?
My previous guilds have been ones that i or a close IRL friend have run and managed ourselves. They are long gone now. One guild that i am particularly proud to have been a part of is BAFFO on The Maelstrom who, at the time, were top 10 on the realm. I have also participated in other Semi hardcore, realm top 50 raiding guilds, those of which i cannot remember the name sadly as it was during the time of the cataclysm that i was with them.
- What do you hope to find in our guild?
I hope to find a stable and friendly place to raid. Somewhere where i can feel part of a core team, be pushed to maximize myself as a player and find satisfaction from killing bosses and progressing through new content.
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
I would like to add that although my history on world of Warcraft is a little spaced out, i have played frost mage for a long time and despite recent changes, am a very capable player when it comes to my class. My lack of recent experience should not be something that puts you off from accepting this application. Whatever hoops are required to jump through in order to raid. I will gladly jump through them. On a side note, i notice you are also looking for a hunter. My friend, the one i ran the guilds with, so happens to be playing a hunter ATM and would gladly transfer for the right guild. Myself and him work very well together however that does not stop us integrating fully into a guild we have a position in.
If you are applying for social membership you don't need to fill out the rest of the questions, unless you wish to perhaps raid with us in the future.
- Are you available to join for raids on
Wednesdays 20:00 - 00:00 server time: Yes/--
Thursdays 20:00 - 00:00 server time: Yes/--
- How often do you think you'll be able to show for our raids?
Unless i have something much more pressing, which you will be notified of as far in advance as possible, then i should be there every week. I am a university student and work part time as an API developer and am usually home by 6PM UK time.
- What are the most important stats for your class and role? We just want to make sure that you know the basics.
As a frost mage, my most important stat is Critical strike (33%) > Int > Haste > Vers
(Gotta smash them big crits with ice lance )
- Do you experience slowdowns, lag or disconnects while raiding?
This one is somewhat tricky to answer. At the time of writing this, i am home from university for easter with only my laptop to play on. Whilst the laptop is a GS60 Ghost Pro (970m, I7, 8gb) it does use wifi and as such may suffer from that. When i am at university, Have my full gaming rig and a solid stable connection and do not suffer from anything that would otherwise impede my ability to perform to the best of my ability.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my application, I hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Archemage Aketu,
thanks for your application.
We would like to accept you for trial. I want to make sure that you are aware that we are a small guild, and we are not aiming for mythic raiding at this time.
Feel free to whisper Xantyr or me (Irya#2311) for an invite.

Thank you very much for this opportunity.
I would like to make you aware that i may have joined at a bit of an awkward time. With it being the Easter break, i fly tomorrow to visit my partner's parents abroad so will be offline for a week as of Tuesday at around 1pm so i would need to miss your next reset. I am sorry about the timing but i suppose thats just life.
As for the mythic, that's perfectly fine by me. Guilds progress together and instead of aiming for the moon and hitting Everest, id rather aim for Everest, hit my target and then go on wards and upwards from there!
P.S, ive sent you a Bnet request ingame
