1 - Please provide your RL specs (age, sex, marital status, yiffer, etc.)
Marital Status: Single
I recently moved from Chicago, IL to Plano, TX due to a job promotion. I don't know what yiffer is but I have a Black Labrador Retriever that is 5 years old that I rescued from the Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society and he has been an awesome companion.
2 - Have you read our mission statement and structure?
3 - What raiding experience do you have? Please specify what roles/classes you have played in the past.
I was a Main Tank and Raid Leader for WOW For Dummies guild. This was on my other toon Gotrekblack (Warrior). I had experience in all BC raids with the exception of Sunwell. We started to raiding Nax on 3.0 before the guild starting falling apart.
I was a Main Tank and Raid Leader for Ascent guild. This was on my other toon Gotrekblack (Warrior). We Raided All 3.0 raids including Maly, Sarth +2Drakes, Naxx.
I am currently a Main Raid member for Unyielding Edge but, since the release of 3.2, the guild is dying and I am again left to look for another permanent home. We Raided Ulduar 10/25-man and currently TOC 10 and 25-man.
4 - Please submit an armory link and chat about your raiding spec. If you are planning on starting a new character on Staghelm, let us know what spec you plan on having at 80.http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Deathwing&n=Skalfblack
I love BM but, to max my toon in the raiding environment, I took on Survival spec in 3.1. When 3.2 came out and I collected enough ArP gear, I traded Survival to MM spec (currently 7/57/7). I still keep a BM toon for my Spirit Beasts. Proud owner of all 3.
5 - Please list your previous Guild(s) and why you left (Transfer applicants should also include previous Guild Master and 2 members, and yes, we are asking because we want to know if it ended amicably)
WOW For Dummies guild: Guild fell apart after the 2 guild leaders had a pretty devastating argument in vent in front of everyone. The guild never recovered.
Ascent: The guild was doing well but, at the release of 3.1 raid attendance dropped and raiding became harder and harder. The lack of a guild management system further deteriorated the guild and split.
Unyielding Edge: This guild is currently experiencing the same issues that Ascent is having and half of the members have now left. I am hoping they recover but, everyday I log on I witness at least 2 toons leaving.
6 - Can you make ALL of the raid times for the foreseeable future?
7 - Do you know an existing member of Bound? If so, do you believe they will admit it?
Not that I know of.
8 - List any alts over level 70 and their professions if you plan on having them in the guild.
Since I am currently an Alliance, I will slowly move my other alts if I am considered for the guild. I have:
A Level 80 Dwarf Warrior Tank (Blacksmithing 450, Mining 450)
A Level 80 Dwarf DK (Alchemy 450, Herbalism 450)
9 - Please list 3 resource websites you frequently utilize for information on developing your in-game play.
Elitist Jerks, MMO Champion, Tankspot
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)
I'd tell him first that I don't ever ninja loots and then I would ask him for his view on why he thinks I am ninja'ing the item. If he continues the accusations and won't let it up, I'd gladly give up the item since it will fall again and is not worth the time or grief to argue and go down to their level.
11 - What are your PC's performance specifications?
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.00 GHz
4.0 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Card
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
Internet: Roadrunner service with best service 10-16MB speeds
12 - Do you own and use a Blizzard Authenticator?
13 - 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'm a laid back competent raider and guild member and hope I am considered. I am just looking for a more stable Guild community that doesn't fall apart after every patch release. Thanks for your time and consideration.
