1 - I am a 21 year old U.S. Army Soldier stationed in Korea. I have been playing WoW for around three years and raided during Burning Crusade.
2 - Have you read our mission statement and structure? yes, I read this before starting this applicaiton.
3 - This char is my highest level one, with my second being a level 63 Warlock. I got to 53 before Burning Crusade came out and then got to 70 and raided with my friends during BC. We had good progression and downed Kara, Gruul, Mag, Vashj and everything but Kel in KT while I was there. I shipped out for basic training a week before we managed to down Kel, which I was obviously not present for. Basic lasted for three months and then when I got to AIT I was able to play again, however it was too late and my guild had moved too far ahead for me to continue with them. In WOTLK I have been doing pug groups of 10/25 Naxx, 10/25 OS and 10/25 VoA. I just got my key for Maly today, after about 15 failed rolls on it and am now ready to begin raiding that.

I chose survival because of all the specs I have tried I get the best DPS with this. I chose the best talents I could to max my dps, ignoring skills like Wyvern Sting and Hawk Eye. I currently average 2.5-3K DPS in 10 man Naxx with Might, Kings, AI and Wild and no potions or food buff. This was the last thing I did, and my DPS was improved a lot, as to why I am putting this in.
5 - My current guild is just some friends here in the Army in Korea. All are leveling and the Guild is just a way to chat easier. During my raiding in BC I was in the guild Unusual. Our guild leader was Destraxtion. Checking his Armory he seems to of not played Wrath as he is still level 70 and guidless. Two of my friends in the Guild were Xargoz, a warlock, and Featherstone, a warrior. The guild broke up over drama with Destraxtions new child and his wife, who were constantly fighting and she was constantly leaving the guild and coming back.
6 - No. Quite simply I work twelve hours a day anywhere from two to four days in a row at random times. There is no M-F work for me, many times I work the weekends. 7 PM for me is 5 AM CST. I work 9 AM to 9 PM. Thus if I work on the day after a raid time in the states, I won't be able to raid as I will be at work. Because of this I am not applying for a hardcore raiding spot, as I will be unable to fill it. Rather I would like to raid when possible, as I still need lower level raid gear to be ready to do good DPS in Uludar.
7 - Do you know an existing member of Bound? If so, do you believe they will admit it? No, I do not.
8 - List any alts over level 70 and their professions if you plan on having them in the guild. I do not have any alts over the level of 70.
9 - I go to Wowwiki at least twice a day, refreshing myself on boss fights to make sure I get them right if I have not done them enough to be fully trained in them. I also visit tkasomething.com a lot for hunter info and tips.
10 - If you are in a pick up group and one of the member's of your party accuses you of "ninja'ing" an item, what do you do? (there is not just one right answer here. Smile) If I am in a pickup group with people I don't know, I won't care enough to get offended. I would try to defend myself and tell them that they are wrong, but what I am have learned is that if someone is accusing you of being a ninja, they don't care what you have to say, they are just angry and will keep calling you names and yelling until you put them on ignore.
11 - I just bought this computer, however I need to upgrade the video card and plan on it soon, but it has an AMD Phenom Quad Core with 64 bit Windows Vista, 6 gigs ram, 750g hard drive. Generally while Running wow in Naxx 25 I am at 70% ram and 35% CPU. I run my 22" monitor on 1920X1080P 60Hz, getting about 20-30 FPS. I have a 10 MB/s internet connection that had never cut out except in a power outage.
12 - Please provide any other information you would like to include, about yourself such as where you live, etc, and about your character and/or why you think Bound would be a good fit. I do listen to Rawrcast, however I just started on Episode 28. I have found that WoW can be one of the few things that lets me unwind after a very annoying day of work, which generally happens every day I work. I love the game and don't plan on quitting for a very long time.
