Malarky
The Player

IRL Name:
Malarky

Age:
16

Gender:
Male

Location:
Munich, South-Germany

English is our main language of communication, please rate your English fluency (listening and verbal) out of 10:
I'd say an 8, I understand English very well.

Who do you know in Last Legion that could sponsor you both in terms of ability and attitude?
I don't know anybody from <Last Legion>, sorry.

How did you find out about us?
I've heard a lot of very good things about Last Legion, and I thought I might just check your forums out, I liked it, got interested and I thought I might just apply as well then.

Name your previous guilds and give a brief explanation of why you left those you spent a significant amount of time with:
<Veto>
I've been in Veto for about 3-4 months, then all of a sudden a couple of members started talking trash about me and the officers actually believed them.
Talked to an officer about this and he told me it would be better for me to just leave the guild.

<Diztruxion>
It's just a guild from a friend so I wouldn't get ninja invites the whole time.

Describe yourself in three words:
Dedicated - I'm very dedicated to playing my Warlock since the day I started playing World of Warcraft.
Loyal - I'm very loyal to the guild I'm in and to the members and I like to help them out whenever I can.
Social - I love to have a good talk/laugh with people.

Are you going afk / vacation within one month of joining us?:
No, getting vacation in 2 weeks and I planned to level to 85 as soon as possible.



Your Character

Why did you give your character the name it has?:
I took the name 'Malarky' from the TV-show 'Band of Brothers' . Watched this show about 9 times if it's not even more.
I named all my characters after Band of Brothers.

What do you like best about your character?:
I love the fact that the Warlock is a ranged DPS.
I've got melee DPS as well but I figured fast enough ranged DPS suited me more.
Also I love the idea behind a Warlock, wearing Cloth, being a (Dark) Wizard and the kind of spells the Warlock has got.

What raid buffs does your class/spec bring to a raid?
My Imp brings the 'Blood Pact' buff to the raid, which increases the Healthpower of every member in range by 1300.
Also I put a SoulWell on the ground before every fight for people to get a Healthstone.

Please link your armoury page here:
http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Nordrassil&cn=Malarky

List any significant alts (name, class/spec, level):
*Randleman - Level 80 Night-Elf Death-Knight - Blood: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Nordrassil&cn=Randleman
*Perconte - Level 80 Gnome Rogue - Assassination: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Nordrassil&cn=Perconte
*Guarnere - Level 80 Human Warrior - Fury: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Nordrassil&cn=Guarnere
*Speirs - Level 80 Gnome Mage - Arcane: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Nordrassil&cn=Speirs

At the moment I'm leveling a Gnome Priest just for having something to do while waiting for Cataclysm to come out.

What is your preferred PvE raiding talent spec? Why?:
I prefer to play Destruction because of the following two talents:
Backdraft - After conflagrate my next three spells of which; Shadowbolt, ChaosBolt and Incerate the spell cast time is reduced by 30%. This is in my opinion very handy because ChaosBolt comes directly after Conflagrate in my rotation, which means I can do my ChaosBolt faster which is a DPS increase.
Shadow and Flame - This talent increases the damage of my Incinerate spell by 12%, Incinerate is one of my most important spells because I spam this one after Immolate>Conflagrate>ChaosBolt untill I can do ChaosBolt again and I have to refresh Immolate.

Also I don't mind to respec my offspec to either Affliction or Demonology if it can help out the raid.

What is your Dual Spec? Is it geared enough for IC25 progress?
My dualspec is Destruction without Bane of Havoc. I guess it's geared enough because I use the same gear as for my mainspec which is with Bane of Havoc.

List your primary and secondary professions, please mention any notable epic or rare recipes:
Tailoring - 450 I've got 3 epic patterns for my tailoring:
*Deathfrost Boots
*Leggings of Woven Death
*Sandals of Consecration


Enchanting - 450 I've got just the regular formulas, nothing special like Blade Ward or Mongoose.

How many Lich King exalted reputations do you have? Please list them.
*Wyrmrest Accord - Exalted.
*Argent Crusade - Exalted.
*Kirin Tor - Exalted.
*Knights of the Ebon Blade - Exalted.
*Sons of Hodir - Exalted.
*Ashen Verdict - Exalted.



Your Raiding Experience

What is your best IC10 and IC25 achievement?
ICC-10:
I haven't done more than only four bosses in ICC-10 so I'd say [Storming the Citadel]

ICC-25:
I haven't done any special achievements in ICC-25 for the drake, so I'd say [The Fall of the Lich King]
Because I was very proud when I got that one, because I got to defeat all bosses in ICC.

What is the hardest IC fight in your experience?
I guess that would be Sindragosa 25-man Heroic.
Mainly due the fact I never got to kill her on heroic, and people kept making mistakes for example to keep doing DPS while having the debuff that stacks.

List the bosses you have killed in IC 10 or 25
ICC 10-man: I've only done the first four bosses in 10 man.
ICC 25-man: I've done every boss on normal mode, and on heroic mode as well, except for PP, Sindra and TLK.

What kind of raid experience before IC do you have? (include any references to Pre and Post BC; and please be as specific as possible, "I went to Molten Core once" is not enough) :
Naxxramas 10-man: Cleared
Naxxramas 25-man: only Anub'Rekhan, Patchwerk, Grobulus and Noth.
Malygos 10-man: Cleared
Malygos 25-man: never done because I hate the place. =P
Sarharion 10-man: Cleared with 3 drakes achievement
Sartharion 25-man: Cleared with 3 drake achievement
Ulduar 10-man: Cleared with Algalon the Observer. With the bosses needed on heroic.
Ulduar 25-man: Only the first four bosses + Kologarn.
TotC 10-man: Cleared
TotC 25-man: 4/5
RS 10-man: Cleared
RS 25-man: Cleared

What is your highest recorded HPS / TPS / DPS in a 25 man raid?
Ouch, tough question.
I really don't know my highest HPS and TPS ever in a 25 man raid, sorry.
DPS, around 19k on a single boss fight.

List your main spell rotation / priority to do your job on a raid?
On a bossfight:
I start by pressing my keybinding 'T' to activate my trinket, which means I can maybe do it twice in one fight.
Then I do: Bane of Doom/Bane of Havoc, depending on the fight > Immolate > Conflagrate > ChaosBolt > Incinerate spam, untill my ChaosBolt is off CD to do again, and Immolate every time the buff on the boss has to be refreshed.

How do you prepare for a raid?
I make sure I have my Ice-Tea and cigarettes around so I won't have to run downstairs.
I make sure my girlfriend is either watching TV downstairs or just away with her friends.
Then I make sure I have my brewfest keg with me to get everybody drunk.
No just kidding of course =P
I make sure I have 4-5 Flask of the Frost Wyrm with me, I make sure I have enough gold to repair.

What do you dislike most about raiding in World of Warcraft?:
Sometimes it really takes too long for them to make some new raids/add some bosses.
Of course this shouldn't happen too fast because exploring new fights is awesome, also faisrolling through bosses can be cool, but when it's starting to get really boring they should add something for us to do. And not a *cough* crap *cough* fight like the Ruby Sanctum.

What days/times are you available to raid (list all)?:
I'm available on every day of the week.



And finally

What do you bring to our raid team and community?
(this is your opportunity to provide us with extra information to set you apart from other applications and cover an issue not mentioned above):

I bring a lot of loyalty and dedication.
You can expect a guy who knows about his class but is always willing to improve, to learn and to get advise about stuff.
You can expect a guy who is always doing his best in the raids and always looking for a way to improve if it doesn't go like I want it.


Thanks for reading this application, I appreciate it.

Hiya

I'm not a warlock pro, so I cannot tell if Dark Arts 2/3 is good, or if you should fill it. (considering the soulfire talent you should probably get 3/3) but that's something minor.

Your apply is decent.

Thanks for your apply, and we will be back with you soon.

Hello Choke,

Thanks for the quick reply.
If those talents are wrongly picked out, I'll respec to the talents which will either be advised or I'll just go do some research on the internet.

My current spec I've though of together with a friend from Veto so I'm pretty sure there are some minor parts in it.
However respeccing isn't a problem. :)

Thanks for taking the time out to post an app.

Unfortunately, your age is too far under our age limit of 21 for further consideration.

Good luck in your search for a guild.

Thanks


On further reading, I'm curious how a 16 year old has managed to accomplish in IC (Sindy hc?) what you have done.

Do you own your internet / pay for it?

Can you pls explain a bit more of your availability (everyday, at 16)?

Is there anyone in the guild that knows of you / raided with you to vouch for your maturity level?

Your app is complete, and detailed, which is good. Your age atm, is the limiting factor.

Convince us.

Skil

Ps: We have a LOT of warlocks. How focused are you on playing this class?

Pps: A refusal today may not mean a complete refusal. I would suggest you check back in with us when you reach level 85 and can more readily contribute to raiding in January.

Ppps: How is school progressing for you?

Hello Skildrae.

About your first question, when I applied to <Veto> I was very unexperienced, because I have always been on a social rank in every single guild, <Veto> was the first guild which actually allowed me to participate in the raids.
With them I made progress, first of all it were a lot of nights wiping on TLK, then on LDW Heroic and so on.
If I think about it how you ask it, I truly see now that I really have achieved a lot in ICC, I'm proud of that.
I'd say as answer to that question that I have to thank <Veto> for taking me with them and letting me be a part of the progression.

No, I do not own my internet, I'm still living at home with my parents.
My father is an officer in the justice department and praise him for being able to afford the most expensive internet available in our country.
Also my girlfriend lives with me and she became 20 y/o. She also has a very well payed job but the reason for that I'd like to keep personal, so if you want to, we could have a chat in-game.
No offends of course but that's just not something I'd like to post on a forum for everybody to read. I hope you don't misunderstand me in this. =$

Yes I can tell you about my availability, the thing is I had to redo this year on my school, I'm currently in the 4th year and I should be in the 5th year actually, but last year I experienced some problems like my mum getting sick and never seeing my dad because of his busy job so I had to do the year over.
I also dropped a level from school so the study I'm following currently is a bit easier plus the fact I'm doing it all for the second time, this means I've got a lot of free time because my homework isn't that hard and I can do it fast enough which means I don't have to do it in the evenings.

I'm availalbe every night in the evening due the fact that my girlfriend lives at my home, I see her every day, so I don't have those nights like: "Cya guys I'm going to my girlfriend". Also I don't have a job anymore besides school because I've recently had an accident in the traffic.
At the moment I'm also on a break from my sport because of the accident and the winter. Which means I've got every night free.
On a further note, if I can go back to my sport, the training days aren't on the raid evenings, so that's why I felt like the raiddays of <Last Legion> suited me very much.

I'm sorry if this story was a bit strangely explained but I think you understand what I mean. =)

I'm afraid I haven't raided with anybody from your guild because I never really do pugs.
I mean, I like raiding but not more than 3 MAYBE 4 nights in the week.
So I only participated in the 25-man runs of <Veto> and never did any pugs.
Although I'm a friend of a person who is friends with a couple of <Last Legion> members, Vaii.
Don't know if this something worth to tell but that's the only thing I could think of at the moment.

"Your application is complete and detailed" - Thank you, I appreciate that.

About the focus of my class.
I really love my Warlock, I've been playing him since day one I started to playing World of Warcraft.
I've never even thought of changing my main, not even when people asked me if I wanted to.
So yes, I'm very dedicated to my Warlock. I'd really like to keep playing him as my main character in Cataclysm.

I understand the fact about the refusal, although it would be too bad to be very honest.
When I left Veto I felt really crappy in real life, because I get attached to a guild and its members.
I applied to 3 Horde guilds and they all declined me due upcomming Cataclysm.
I can't blame them because if a Warlock just doesn't fit in, it just doesn't.
But I'm just looking for a nice guild who wants me and lets me participate in raids, basicly I'm just looking for a "home".

How is school progressing for you?
As mentioned above, I'm doing this year over so it's very easy.
For the rest I'm studying Society and Culture, two years ago I also had to do subjects like Maths and Physics, which I absolutely hate, back in those days school was hard for me.
But at the moment I only have easy subjects, I'm very good at languages and the study about human society and culture.
So school is going great. =)

I really hope this has convinced you.
If you'd like to talk to me in game, I'll come online as soon as possible

Thanks for taking the time to reply to my application and thanks for reading it. =)

Nice application, wouldn't've guessed your age from that. Maybe Munchen has nicer 16 year olds than Manchester! Although:

post #3553564:



And not a *cough* crap *cough* fight like the Ruby Sanctum.



I like the pink dragon! They'd better bring a pet out soon that heckles people like he does.

As far as the locky stuff goes, me and Ev have pretty much cookie cutter specs atm which are a little different to yours. This is in no way prescriptive, more I'm just curious about your choices:

- Why no shadowburn?
- Why aftermath/backlash?
- Where does soulfire fit into your rotation?
- How're you adapting to life with only three shards?!? (I'm getting withdrawal)

Also, pro for having so many gnomes! :-)

Hello Bunnikins.

No, no, no and again NO. The pink dragon should die.

About your questions though..

I've been asked by <Veto> to respec from Shadowburn to Shadowfury once to help out in a couple of ICC raid situations, I never specced back because I left the guild not very long after that.
Like I said I applied to ther guilds, they declined me and I basicly stopped playing for 2 weeks, that's why I didn't change it anymore.
I can change it back if it's more usefull.

To be honest about Aftermath/Backlash *whispers* We had a quite bad Death-Knight tank in <Veto> who couldn't keep aggro so well, so all the DPS, including myself got aggro from time to time. *whispers* When I was talking to my friend Kandrax about a decent Destruction spec he told me to get that one because of that.

Soulfire fits in my rotation whenever it procs to do an instant one, my screen flashes two green bars when it procs so I never miss it. My soulfire keybinding is on 5, right next to my Incinerate keybinding 4.
Which means when I am spamming my Incinerate I can press Soulfire easily.
And I noticed that it is a slight DPS increase.

How am I addapting my life with only 3 shards.
Quite stupid... =P Because I'm so much used to having like 32 shards with me, even more sometimes it's strange to get used to!

About the Gnomes.. They'll rule the world once, right?

Thanks for your questions, I hope these answers are a bit what you've expected.

Nice application. Also mature response to questions asked which is good.

We do have a number of regular warlocks so I don't know this will affect your chances. I'm also under the impression recruitment is currently closed until after cataclysm launch (about january I think).

Good luck with your application.

Hey Malarky

Welcome to our forums :)

Despite usbeing very filled with locks and closed appl until cata, i really do like your application.

Sadly armory is closed and i can not have a closer look at your character. But if you do abou 19 k single bos target thats good :)

From what i read above i understand that your destro. Have you considered/tried affliction spec? I still consider this the best raiding spec, even though the gap to destro is decreased a lot since the lest patches.

I understand that you do not wish to change class, I love my lock myself, but its hard to see how we would fit you in.

As stated above we do have a lot of regular warlock atm. Probably more than any other class in the guild as acitve raiders.

How you would feel about being on standby if you at some point where accepted to the guild?

Oh, and also curious about the same thign as Clikz: Now .. to get back to your app Malarky... I`m interested why all of a sudden Veto members started talking "thrash" about you? Why did the officers believe them

And, what where they saying about you?

LL is a guild where drama and backtalking very rarely happens and is not accepted.

affl lock ftw! :P


You Can If You Think You Can!

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will.
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or latet the man who wins,

Hello Clikz.

I'd like to keep that personal if you don't mind, so can we please talk about that in-game?

Hello Andarion.
Yes you do know me, we were in Incursio together. Nice to see you mate, didn't know you were in <Last Legion>.

Hello Choke.
No thanks, I've got a girlfriend. But if you bring me a crate of Warsteiner beer I'll reconsider marrying you.

Hello Moonie.
Well the thing is, I'd prefer to keep on playing my Warlock. Also I've never changed because my Warlock's gear is far ahead than the gear of my alts.
If I could join <Last Legion> with another character because my Warlock doesn't fit in, I think I could do that. But I'd like to stick with my Warlock if that is possible.
Also about the <Veto> thing, I'd like to keep it personal because it hurt my feelings what they did.
So if you don't mind we can talk about it in-game.
No offends, it's not that I just don't want to tell it, but rather alone.

About Affliction, I've had an Affliction spec once but that was for PvP, I thought about going Affliction as offspec to try it out in raiding, but the thing is none of my Warlock-friends have Affliction, so I can't ask them for advise when things aren't clear to me on the internet.
IF I'd join <Last Legion> and you'd like to help me out with Affliction I will respec my offspec to Affliction immediatly. :)

Hello Keeyla.
Yeah, this is a problem in almost every guild, Cataclysm makes it almost impossible to join a good guild at the moment, but like I said I'd really like to find a "home" where I can fit into in Cataclysm raiding.
The thought behind my application was that I applied now so I could get to know the people in the guild before I start raiding with them if I'm allowed to participate.

I hope these answers were what you all expected.

BUT who am i to judge, and i donĀ“t know you that well to deside if you are mature or not. :) Anyway, I wish you all the best.
