Post Xatius Warlock Raiding Application
======================Application Form=====================

Main character name: Xatius
Class: Warlock
Level: 100
Preferred Talent Spec: Destruction
Off-spec: Demonology
Link to your character's armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/p ... ius/simple

Alt Names/Classes/Levels: Blasphemìes/Death Knight/99

Previous 3 guilds: Tauren Tippers had been my guild from the start on Proudmoore.

Why did you leave these guilds? Did you leave on friendly terms? Add any references here if applicable.

Sadly, the guild transferred server/faction. I am unaware of the current whereabouts of the guild.

Why would you like to join Strangely Ironic? What about us appeals to you over any other guild? How did you hear about us?

I would like to join to meet new people and progress through new content as it is released, and the family dynamic that you all have with one another according to the forums really made you stand out as an ideal guild. I was aimlessly browsing guilds via the guild finder when I ran across your guild and followed the link here :D

Are you applying for another guild? If so, which one(s)? What about our guild appeals to you over the other guild(s) you have applied for?

I am not currently applying for any other guilds.

What do you find most rewarding about the game?

Putting on that new piece of gear that you worked so hard for, and finding new ways to improve.

What do you find most frustrating?

The RNG gods do not normally smile upon me.

Please tell us about yourself outside of WoW. (Some things you could share are: age, job/school, location, family, history of you and wow (you personally, not your toons), any good/bad info about you that we might want to know or enjoy knowing, other games you play). Keep in mind, we consider ourselves a family. This is where you are going to sell yourself to us. Please take this section serious and spend some time on it.

Well, I'm a 16 year old male super nerd :ugeek: currently a junior in high school. I live in Delaware and have been playing WoW on and off since the Cataclysm. My most recent break started around SoO and ended with the release of Warlords of Draenor as I am once again hooked. I never really got into raiding until now unless you count LFR as raiding xD. I got my start in gaming early in life with the release of Halo for the xbox and it's been my passion ever since, and aside from WoW I have been a console gamer for most of my life. Halo is still my all-time favorite :D, but AC, CoD, and Battlefield are close contenders. On a side note, I am a bit shy when it comes to meeting new people and as such I may not be very talkative at first.

Are you applying as a raider or a casual?

Raider

If applying as a raider please answer the following questions:

What to you foresee your raid attendance to be? Will you be a Raider Addict(90% attendance)? or a Raider (50% attendance)?

With school being a possible barrier my raid attendance may be a bit sporadic, but at the very least will be 50%

Which raid team are you applying for? Tues/Thurs or Fri/Sat?

Due to having school it will have to be the Fri/Sat team(Jasper), even though said team isn't looking for a lock right now.
Edit: Also applying for Leviathan(whoops)
If someone makes a mistake and possibly causes a wipe, do you:
a. yell, punish, berate, etc.
b. ignore that it happened and don't say anything.
c. find out the problem and try to help them overcome the issue.
d. "50 DKP Minus". :P

C, yelling at someone won't solve anything, nor would ignoring it. C is the clearest path as I can help someone improve without the need for any unpleasantness.

If someone is inconsistent in their performance, do you:
a. try to find someone better to replace them.
b. ignore it and don't say anything.
c. try to work with them to help them improve.

C, I would definitely prefer helping someone as opposed to removing them, that would be a bit cruel.

We are a progression guild, but that word has a loose meaning. What does it mean to you?

To me a progression guild is one that works it's way through content helping it's members progress along the way, whether that just be progress by earning new gear, or learning things about your class that you didn't already know, beefing up your rotation, etc.

Do you have raid experience? This includes Vanilla, TBC, and WotLK.

I am 6/7N this expansion, and I ran a bit of SoO normal last expansion, but before that I had no interest in raiding.

What bosses did you find most challenging? Why?

Thus far the most challenging bosses have been bosses like the Dark Shaman from SoO with constant movement and things to avoid as I need to focus on doing decent dps whilst not dying due to something as silly as standing in the fire xD.

Which were the most enjoyable? Why?

The most enjoyable bosses for me have to be the most challenging. There is no fun in just dpsing a boss from 100% to 0 without any added challenge.

What are your three favorite/useful addons and why?

My favorite addon has to be Deadly boss mod for it's helpfulness in raid encounters, with a close second being bartender as I've always disliked the original Blizzard bars. MogIt would take the third spot as I love the transmog feature a bit too much :D.

If possible, please link a photo of your UI.

Edit: scheduling conflict no longer an issue (I may have previously believed that PST was ahead of EST... /facepalm), with Jasper being unavailable I could also certainly apply for Leviathan Tues/Thurs :D

Post Re: Xatius Warlock Raiding Application
Hi Xatius!

Wow, what a nice application - you sound like you are getting a good education! I love seeing applications that are well written grammar wise and with correct sentence structure as well, especially when written by a teenager. (Sorry its the teacher in me)

I have to apologize we actually no longer have a Friday Saturday Team per say. A string of bad luck in real life for a few raiders kind of nipped that one in the bud. However, there is often someone pugging a team on the weekend. I sure understand about the weekday schedule since you have school and I am sure would probably not be able to stay up to raid til 11:30pm. Perhaps down the road we will have enough people interested as well as a raid leader for the weekend team again.

Yes, I kind of look at our guild as a family. Everyone is super nice and mature - no raging - bad mouthing - ridiculing (well except for when they pick on their guild leader). Some people love to chat others prefer to just play.

This seems to be the case for a lot of people these days.

Oh my gosh, this is so me! I sit next to my hubby and we can do the same quests, the same everything and he will rake in the good stuff. His toons have about 5 times as many epic followers as mine do and his loot upgrades to epic way more than mine! He laughs about it, I cry.

Not too bad and your Ilevel is pretty decent! Our Raid Team is 5/7 Normal and 1/7Heroic at this time.

I will let the Raid Leader and a couple more officers reply. I know that we always prefer to pull in guild members if they are geared and know the fights. It is a requirement to register and stay active on the forum. If you are looking for a guild that you can enjoy and relax in I think SI will work for you. However if you have your heart set on raiding and are unable to raid with us during the week (where we can always use a lock!) then not sure we will be what you want. We always welcome casual players and whether or not you raid would depend on scheduling and raid leader discretion :) Would love to have you join our team if possible cuz everyone knows Locks rock!

Post Re: Xatius Warlock Raiding Application
This really well written. I'd say this is a shoe-in except for the schedule conflict. Maybe come in as casual and see if he can make the raids?

Nah Xatious don't be embarrassed! I feel bad that I forgot to edit the recruit app and I'm headed to do that now!. Keep checking I am sure the other officers will reply as soon as they get a chance :) Raid time would be 6-8:30 Server time which is 9-11:30 EST (Im on EST also as are several other of our raiders. Some are on Server time, and some central)

Childhood nursery rhyme been around for a long long time -

A dillar, a dollar,

A ten-o'clock scholar,

What makes you come so soon?

You used to come at ten-o'clock,

And now you come at noon.
