Post Zelbert - Rogue - Application
Main character name: Zelbert
Class: Rogue
Level: 92 (still leveling)
Preferred Talent Spec: Assassination
Off-spec: Combat (Subtlety if needed this expansion)
Link to your character's armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/proudmoore/Zelbert/simple

Alt Names/Classes/Levels: Polybius/Mage/90, Nextok/DK/90, Sligmy/Shaman/90 on other servers

Previous 3 guilds: Destructive Influence-Hydraxis, The Beatdown-Proudmoore

Why did you leave these guilds? Did you leave on friendly terms? Add any references here if applicable.
I left Destructive Influence after they stopped raiding in Cata and MoP altogether, and their leader (Alynnae) is rarely online. Left The Beatdown since they do not raid. Left on friendly terms, no fights or drama.

Why would you like to join Strangely Ironic? What about us appeals to you over any other guild? How did you hear about us?
The guild caught my attention on the game forums, and the name sounded peculiar. :D The guild's interests convinced me. They feel right.


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?
Not applying to other guilds, I'm avoiding overlapping apps.

What do you find most rewarding about the game?
Exploring new environments, transmog, and collecting. The world constantly unfolds!

What do you find most frustrating?
Realms shutting down during the middle of a boss fight. Especially with recent denial-of-service attacks in conjunction with server upgrades.

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.
I'm age 19, live in Los Angeles, CA and currently studying speech-pathology at CSU Northridge. I'm a geek when it comes to horror and metaphysics. As a result I've been glued to WoW's dark-ish fantasy since late-Classic/early-BC. Other online games I occasionally pick up are Guild Wars 2, Minecraft, and Garry's mod. As for bad aspects of myself...I'm very shy and clumsy when it comes to socializing :(

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)?
Raider addict

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.

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.

We are a progression guild, but that word has a loose meaning. What does it mean to you?
It means going forward by assessing the boss fights beforehand and analyzing whichever errors in said fights. There's no real endpoint, but progression is really about the experience of teamwork - and achievement.
Do you have raid experience? This includes Vanilla, TBC, and WotLK.
Only did Gruul's Lair in TBC since I was still new to raiding. Accomplished Naxx (H25), Uld, and some ICC in WotLK. The only Cata raids I experienced were BoT, BWL, BD, some FL and the first wing of DS. I have not experienced much raiding in Cata and MoP since raid teams on Hydraxis are scant and volatile with their low population.

What bosses did you find most challenging? Why?
Ultraxion was difficult due to Fading Light and the composition of the raid healers and tanks to counter it. Nefarian (BD) had a frustrating add phase towards the end.

Which were the most enjoyable? Why?
On Iron Juggernaut I loved being able to soak the bombs, reduce AoE damage, and position myself away from tar and knockbacks. I loved watching players die to Heigan the Unclean's safety dance, and I thank General Vezax for eating caster dps's mana :twisted: ^_^

What are your three favorite/useful addons and why?
DBM for its countdowns and warnings. Recount for its data in all roles (healing, dps, areas needing improvement), and GTFO's alarms setting off whenever you step on poo.

Hi Zelbert!

Thanks for the application! Short and simple :) Yes we are a peculiar guild! We kind of draw people who are actually human and don't believe on stepping all over people to reach their goals! We enjoy playing the game as adults without all the rage, berating, vulgarity and immaturity of the juveniles.

College eh? I unfortunately did not get the opportunity to go to college until I was in my 30's. Perhaps that was best in the long run, by then I was mature enough to want the good grades and not the parties :) Not that I was ever a partier lol, I was painfully shy back in those days! But once I started, I kept going until I had my Master's Degree.

Whereabouts in LA? I was born there many moons ago. Lived in Bellflower, Compton, Norwalk, Downey and hmm think there was one more. I know today most of those places are not good places to live!

You are in luck! We are still recruiting and have room (Thank you Blizzard for the Flex style of raiding!) What nights are you looking at to raid? Tues/Thurs or Fri/Sat?

I know the other officers are probably way too busy in game to reply right now lol so just whisper someone in game and ask for an invite! I will be on in about half an hour when Sunday here in Kentucky turns to Monday!
