Rerolling application (x2) - Accepted for trial
This application is for two people, as we are a couple in real life.
*** Have you read and understood the Guild Rules?**
*** How old are you?**
*** What is your character name, class, and level?**
We were planning on making our characters tonight, so names are subject to change dependent on what we choose to play in the end. We’ll be starting from level one and hoped to be in the 70s at least by Cataclysm’s launch.
*** Post your armory-link here.** Not yet applicable.
*** How often do you usually play?**
Daily, 4+ hours
*** Do you have any previous MMORPG experience?**
We started playing WoW late in Vanilla and played through TBC. Aside from WoW, we’ve played EQ and EQ2, Warhammer Online and Age of Conan.
*** What are your previous guild(s) and why did you leave it?**
We were in Dominion on Aggramar. We left just after Wrath of the Lich King launched as we started our own business and needed to focus a great deal of time on building that (given Britain was in the middle of a recession at the time). We have decided to return to the game as Cataclysm comes as we are now in a position to put in the time we need in WoW to make it feel worthwhile to us, and are not returning to our old guild as it has undergone a lot of change socially, in the member base and in its management. A lot of people we enjoyed spending time with are no longer playing and we would like a fresh start in the fresh world, making new friends.
*** What do you expect to find in our guild?**
Companionship, first and foremost. People to spend time with. A friendly, easy going community that still enjoys progress and raiding. People that like to work as a team. Some banter. A place where we can contribute as players and as people.
*** Is there anything else you would like to add?**
To be clear, we are both interested in raiding at level 85. We are planning to roll hybrids, so will be able to heal/tank/dps with not masses of preference at this time as to which roles we adopt - it’ll be based on the classes we choose.
As we’ve not made the characters yet, if you’d like to chat to us some more feel free to say so here and I’ll try and get in touch in game.
Optional for social applicants:
*** What are your current builds and why did you choose them?**
*** Tell us what you know about the class and specc you play. Please include your spell rotation (main specc) and the most important stats for your class.**
In the past, both of us have played paladins, one played a shaman and the other a druid relatively extensively. We’ve been getting ourselves up to date with changes and play styles via Wow Insider, Elitist Jerks, TotemSpot.com (one of us is interested in playing a shaman again) as well as various class-related websites and blogs. We’ve played as tanks, healers and as DPS throughout our time in WoW so whilst we’re levelling and preparing our characters we are concentrating on gaining as much knowledge as possible. We currently understand the stat changes coming in Cataclysm, how regen is important for healers in the new raids (so spirit), how intellect is replacing spell power and that defence is no longer a concern for tanks (instead, they look for a balance between Effective Health from stamina, talents and armor and avoidance from block, dodge and parry).
*** When would you be available to raid with us? (Our raid schedule will most likely be Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 20:00-00.00 server time in Cataclysm.)**
As we work freelance we can make our own free time when needed, hence can suit any schedule.
*** Do you experience slowdowns, lag or disconnects in 25-man raids?**
Was never a problem before and we’re now running better machines than we were back then. Time will tell though.
*** Tell us about your previous raiding experience**
As level 60: Cleared up to AQ. In AQ40 we stopped at Twin Emps.
As level 70: Cleared everything up to Archimonde in MH and Gurtogg in BT. Poked our noses into Sunwell but they didn’t get far.
As level 80: N/A
*** What is your opinion on doing hard modes?**
If it’s what the guild is aiming for then that’s what we’re doing. Hard modes seem to be a nice added challenge in the raiding world and something to get your teeth into. We are the sort of raiders who want to progress and would rather be wiping on something to achieve a kill as a guild than we would farming things that give us no challenge at all (unless there’s a specific reason we’re doing it, such as gearing new raiders).
