1 - RL specs?
Hello there! Our name is Andy, and we are a 34-year-old gentleman. We frequently sport both a monocle and a pocket square, and we are willing to pretend that we do not understand what the word 'yiffer' means. Also, we occasionally refer to ourselves in the 1st person plural, but that conceit generally only lasts us through the first question on guild applications where we are applying with 2 toons.2 - Mission statement/guild structure?
Noted.3 - Raiding experience?
-Vanilla: MT in MC, BWL and through Huhu in AQ40. Hunter in MC, BWL, AQ40 and Naxx up to 4 Horsemen.
-TBC - Hunter through KJ in Sunwell.
-WotLK - Hunter through TotGC10 Anub and TotC25 Anub. 4 - Armory link/raiding spec?
I currently have a hardcore toon on Staghelm - by hardcore, I mean that this toon never joins groups or accepts help from others, does level appropriate quest and instance content, and will be deleted if he dies even one time. WhatIsUpDogs, BM Hunter
. He is currently level 71, and I plan on trying to claim a world-first level 85 no deaths achievement with the release of Cataclysm. Of course, I won’t be raiding on this toon, but hopefully I could guild him and share in the magical not-dying experience with the rest of you. Of note, Haf has died 2,786 more times than I have, Stomp is at 2,140 more deaths, and Igoo has 1,895 more
(click the 'deaths' tab on the left side of the page). Basically, I think this means I’m a cheap date. Your mileage may vary. If it seems like Bound and I are a good match, I would transfer over my raiding hunter from Windrunner
. With the transfer, s/he will become a post-op transexuelf, and be renamed to AndyPants. Raiding spec is Surv or MM. I have gear for all 3 hunter specs, and am willing to do whatever is necessary for the needs of the raid. 5 - Previous Guilds/References?
-Order of the Alliance/Arx Deorum (Windrunner) – 2005-2007, 2008-2009. GM for both is Straye, references are Raadun and Qwinar. I was a member of this guild in Vanilla and WotLK. We were server first for killing Ony in vanilla, and top 3 server for all vanilla raiding accomplishments. In WotLK we had some setbacks, but were able to clear all heroic content on 10-man, and all non-heroic content on 25-man. I am presently still a member, but we are having difficulty fielding more than 20 people for raid nights.
-The Cut Throats (Windrunner) – 2007-2008. I was the DPS officer in TBC. GM was Jerrax (no longer playing). References are Shellwain and Speedyjosh, both of Windrunner. We had lightning in a bottle with this group in TBC. We were 2nd server for all raiding achievements, barely behind Forlorn Legacy (a top 10 US guild on our server at the time). Our GM quit shortly after WotLK was released, and the guild slowly and sadly dissolved. 6 – 100% Attendance?
Yep.7 – References in Bound?
Other than being a podcast fanboy, I do not know any members of Bound.8 – Alts?
None of note.9 - 3 resource websites?
1. EJ Hunter Subforum (http://elitistjerks.com/f74/)
2. Ensidia class guides (http://www.ensidia.com/home/guides)
3. Petopia (http://www.wow-petopia.com/)10 - LET ME SHOW YOU MY VIDEOS. MY VIDEOS, LET ME SHOW YOU THEM.
I'll be honest, I only watched the first 30 seconds before I felt all squicky*. To quote Joaquin Phoenix in the film 8MM; “There are some things that you see, and you can't unsee them.”
*Squicky (verb): Simultaneously confused and tumescent.11 – Compy?
DogHouse Armor ES. 12 – Authenticator?
Yep.13 – Can you please blather on about yourself?
Holy Guacamole, I LOVE blathering on about myself! The toon I am applying on is a pet project of mine – I have made several attempts at the 1 to max level no deaths accomplishment, and this is the first one that looks like the mission is going to succeed. I hope to get a feeling for Bound on this toon, and if it seems like a good match, I will transfer over a t9 + raid geared hunter to be a member of your raid team. I am a fan of your podcast and your DIY ethic, and I hope to launch a blog/podcast career-oid of my own. I am starting with blogging about my 1-85 hardcore quest, and that is a work in progress over at http://whatisupdogs.blogspot.com/.
Hey, if you click that link, you’ll be the first non-me person to ever view it! A few podcasts ago, you mentioned a need for an editor/content person; if you think the above linked blog is a decent idea, I’d be willing to migrate it over to your site. I’m not a great writer, but I am a good editor; if that role has not yet been filled, I’d like to be considered for it.
