List any significant alts (name, class/spec, level):
Name your previous guilds and give a brief explanation of why you left those you spent a significant amount of time with:
Sanctus – Left recently after the core of the raid-team had moved on to find new homes. I was one of the last of the core to move on. I left my old home with a heavy heart because it was a place where I met some awesome people and players. Be that as it may, whilst I will hopefully find a new home with new friends, I am still in the game primarily to raid. Sanctus had gotten up to Vashj and Kael before the collapse of the core, and so therefore it makes sense for me to still be focussing on that point, hopefully to move on from there and see some more content. My aim is to see BT, and having fun doing it
Equilibrium (used to be called Artizans of Azeroth) – Left after I decided to do some TBC raiding. Eq was social bunch with no real experience of, or interest in guild progression.
What is your preferred PvE raiding talent spec and why have you chosen it?:
40 / 0 / 21 – arcane frost.
I used to be deep fire, all the way from 0 – 70 and until we hit TK. I re-specced for Al’lar (who is 100%FR obviously) which answers the question “will you respect for a raid – yes, absolutely, is the only answer in my book”. I manage raid buffed with an SP, shammy and another deep frost spec mage around 950 avg DPS which was good dmg for Sanctus so I stuck with it. Being frost is fun, loads of pew-pew whilst not being as much an aggro-whore. Mana-management is also a doddle especially with the serpent braid trinky. I tried deep arcane for a while but found OOM a problem whilst not doing much more dmg. I’m not spec-fussy meaning I don’t “love my spec”, which some players do and which makes little sense to me, I play what’s needed, and make it my own
List your primary and secondary professions, pls mention any notable epic or rare recipes:
Enchanting and Alchemy (pot master). I'm quite a lazy crafter and haven't really spent any time going after anything particularly rare.
Which Attunements and Heroic Keys do you have?
Most of the pre-TBC attunements; all heroic keys, Hyjal up to Vashj & Kael, BT completed.
Do you own a Medallion of Karabor?
Nope. Unless I flogged it for a gnomish pole dancing night out in Shattrath...
What kind of raid experience do you have? (include any references to Pre and Post BC):
Pre-TBC not anything worth mentioning. Visited ZG a few times, Nax a few times, MC a few times
TBC, Kz: cleared multiple times.
ZA: cleared multiple times (was there for all new boss kills bar one I think).
Gruul: cleared multiple times
Maggy: cleared multiple times (pre maggy-nerf, never been there since the nerf)
SCC: 5/6 we never got Vashj down (think I was there for most tries on her)
TK: 3/4 we never got Kael down either (was there for a couple of the tries)
Hyjal: downed boss 1, wasn’t there for any other tries.
How do you prepare for a raid?
Consumables; bosses look-up / tictacs; latest gossip / forums, abuse rantings etc ...
What do you dislike most about World of Warcraft?:
Not a huge PVP fan (or discussing pertaining to pwning).
Immatureness / loot-horniness (usually goes hand in hand).
What days are you available to raid (list all)?:
any 2 weekdays (8PM game-time till 12) and one weekend day (Sat or Sunday all day).
Do you know about in Last Legion who could sponsor you?
Not sure whether the weirdo called Magi / Sunlord is still with you.
Had the pleasure of raiding with him a bit - not sure if that's a good thing ;p
Do you have any additional info you wish to share? (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've also applied to Sworn (and I might apply to others), and as I'm a lazy typer I'll copy and paste all the arse-kissing which can also be found hither ;)
Gear-wise, the gear I have is pretty much my only gear. I have a few haste pieces from ZA in the bank still. I still have 2 T4 pieces purely because:
a) Although I have 300 badges in the bank I refuse to wear badge trash and - I am a raider, I have some pride :p
b) The interruption bonus aint that bad if that’s all you have.
Sadly I was the only long time playing and active mage in Sanctus (at the time of the core leaving) who never got T5 trousers (hence spellstrike trousers). I passed on more than a few and was just unlucky I guess. On the other hand the (non-dkp) looting system was somewhat “questionable”, nuff said. Spellstrike is better than the badge trousers as it has crit and hit, the badge ones having either only.
With regards to badge gear, if required I am happy to acquire some of course. I can probably benefit hugely from some more T5 and T6 obviously. With another T5 some arcane blast rotation might be a good crack. With T6 deep fire becomes viable again I guess.
Skill-wise, I am a decent mage, meaning I do decent DMG. I like WoW but RL is more important (as it should be). I am not a theory crafter and I do not want to be the best mage but I do want to be good at what I do, so I put the effort it to get there. I like a lot of weird and wonderful things, including a good sense of humour,goth / industrial music, condensed milk and I hate the name Bob (but call me than if you need/want to, else I prefer J, Jo, Jay, John or Johnny
I can appreciate some of what it takes to manage a guild - downing new bosses is awesome but getting to that stage takes much from everyone.
In general I believe I will be an asset to LL, and that I can contribute to the social and raiding aspects.
On the other hand, the overall quality of people and raiding in Sanctus was quite high, so LL will be as much on trial as I will be for you. I hope both sides will be equally impressed =)
PS: If armourey says I am guilded then as per usual it's slow.
Other than that, I know you're not recruiting mages (who needs mages anyway) but as I'm an “exceptional candidate ofc” I thought I'd present myself for duty anyway ;)
I've heard good things about LL and I look forward to hearing back from you!
