[EU][PLAYER][A] Rudrig, Prot Paladin, HFC: 5/13 H

1 post in this topic

Dedicated prot paladin looking for a new home

 

Who am I

I am a long time WoW player. I am, sadly, over 30 years old. Outside of WoW I have a career, family and some free time. 

 

Raiding, tanking and raid leading is my passion and I love to progress with a group of likeminded people that after hard fight(s) down boss that few nights ago seemed impossible. I am currently based on EU-Aggramar but my situation (guild slowly withering - people quitting the game rather than leaving our ranks) forces me to look for a new guild that is in need of my tanking skills. And since nothing really is keeping me on Aggramar, I decided to look towards other alliance pve realms.

 

I value respect and calm raiding atmosphere rather than a fast progression, so for me quality of my guildmates and raidmates is much more important than the DPS numbers one can dish out. I treat WoW as a relaxing activity after work and not a full time job so I am looking for fun and relaxed people. 

 

Background

As mentioned, I am a long time WoW player. Started in vanilla on a purely casual level, never got to 60, never raided, just had fun exploring the world. Skipped TBC and came back during WotLK. Joined an awesome guild and been there till now. Started to raid on a serious level as tank during ICC and starting Cataclysm I lead own team of guildmates to great glory (our guild had 3 raiding teams at that time). With better or worse luck we cleared all curent content until HFC. For whatever reason this raid broke us - after Blackhand progression, with summer starting more and more people simply quit the game and so our raiding came to a halt. Right now there is very little chance that we will get a proper roster for Legion and so here I am, looking for a new guild.

 

What I am looking for

I am looking for a new guild to call home. I am not looking just for a team to raid with but a community of people to enjoy the game with. I value maturity (mental, however I come from a guild with strict 21yo age limit policy) and people adhering to Wheaton's Law (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/wheatons-law) and obviously would like to find a guild that has similar core values. 

 

As for a raiding needs I would like to raid as tank - protection paladin being the spec I know best and one being closest to my heart. Furthermore given my work, personal life and other commitments I would like to raid preferably two nights a week (3 nights would be a maximum yet I'll try to avoid it if possible). Target content for me is heroic - blazing through normal is fun and I do like it being the warmup for heroic but heroic content is the one I prefer. As for mythic, I believe it is too restrictive and for 2 nights/week raiding schedule it might cause a lot of burnout for raiders that progressed twice on each of the bosses already. But hey, that's just me. I wouldn't be opposed of trying mythic if that wouldn't mean cutting people form the roster or recruiting people just to hit 20man. Prove me wrong here.

 

I value preparation and not wasting others' time. This is why I do my homework before raid, come prepared and strive to play as optimal as possible and to improve and learn from pull to pull. 

 

A bit of TL;DR part below

 

Searching for:

- long standing guild that survives whatever life throws its way

- a true community that experiences the game together (not only focusing on raids)

- maturity and culture inside and outside of the guild

- preferably two raiding days a week schedule (3 days would be maximum I can commit to)

- focus on heroic content (won't mind mythic but don't actively persue it)

- stable roster of experienced raiders

 

Offering (heads up, this will really sound like LinkedIn profile for WoW)

- a long time WoW player (on and off in vanilla, raider since WotLK, raid leader since Cata till now)

- dedicated prot paladin that knows his spec inside out

- dedicated guildmate interested in not only joining but becoming part of the guild

- dilligent raider with almost perfect attendance over the years

- a scholar of raiding strategies doing his homework focusing on both tactics and prearation (spec,gear,consumables)

- experienced raid leader puting respect and good atmosphere above progression. 

- experienced officer focusing on recruitment, guild promotion and event organisation

- well versed in using tools to analyse fight and performance between pulls and between raid nights

- mature and friendly person (at least I hope that one's true)

 

If you represent a guild that might be interested in taking me in - feel free to talk to me: Rudrig#2101

I am really looking forward to hearing from you.

      If you are an exceptional player who cannot make the hustle and bustle of a 3, 4, or even 5 night a week guild, then we are the guild for you. Exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of current needs.
      Almost Heroes - Area 52
      Mythic 2 Night Raiding | 8 Hour Guild | Split Runs
      7/7M -> 1/3M (Pre-Nighthold)
      Raid Times: (CST)
      Sunday: 9pm-1am
      Monday: 9pm-1am
      Formed in December 2015
      HFC: 10/13M - US 1300, Realm 34 (3 raidweeks spent in Mythic)
      About Almost Heroes:
      We believe in pushing content at a pace that is comfortable but still competitive. By the end of Nighthold progression, we intend to be sub US 50 for 2 day guilds, and unlike most guilds that you will see in the recruitment forums, we are going to do what it takes to get there. When you join Almost Heroes, you can expect to fully clear each tier. 
      Our definition of hardcore raiding is making the most out of our time together. Since we only raid 8 hours each week, it is up to each member to come completely prepared for the fights that we'll be working on. Raiders are expected to be highly self-motivated, and willing to find out the latest theorycraft data on their classes. Raiders should always be pushing themselves to improve with each raid week, and should never be satisfied with their performance.
      Every raider is required to have at least one raid-ready alt that they can play just as well as their main for split runs and/or better comp selections. Your alt must also cover the same role as your main. For example, healer/healer, tank/tank, etc. We assist in gearing these alts through our main runs.
      Current Roster Needs for Emerald Nightmare:
      Tank:
      -Any
      Ranged DPS:
      -Shadow Priest
      Healer:
      -Any
       
      All exceptional players are encouraged to apply regardless of what we're currently recruiting
      Recruitment:
      We do not recruit for the bench, if your application is accepted it means that we believe that there is a spot that can be earned, unless we mention otherwise on your application.
      All applications are handled on our website. When submitted, check back on it often, we'll be asking you questions and will follow up with you through it. Put time and effort on your application, it's our first (and often only) impression of you. Make it count!

      <Deluded> are recruiting. We are a fun alliance raiding guild based on the realm Anachronos EU. We provide a chilled and humorous atmosphere while getting the job done. We are a bunch of friends that met in game and help each other to enjoy the best WoW experience possible.
      Many of the guild members have stuck around for years and have spent many hours in each other’s company. We love to have a laugh in and out of raids, if that's what you enjoy this may be a perfect new home for you! Aims - We aim to progress through normal to heroic to mythic at a decent pace while enjoying ourselves along the way, keeping relatively high on the realm rankings.
      Currently 7/7 HC EN , 3/3 ToV HC. Currently recruiting: Dps (ranged pref) for starting MYTHIC. Since mythic can’t be done cross realm as yet, we need people on our server trio. We are currently recruiting ranged DPS, but all applicants will be considered.
      Feel free to contact me ingame anytime - Ernieball#2671

      Like A Boss - 7/7H & 3/3H Recruiting All Players for our raid group and for Mythics+.
       
      About us:
      Like A Boss was founded during WotLK by a small group of real life friends. We are formerly a 10-man Heroic raiding guild that raided throughout WotLK and went on a hiatus mid-Cataclysm. We are a semi-hardcore guild, and are looking for dedicated members who are able to make majority (if not all) of our scheduled raids or any players interested in joining our Mythics+. Our guild is mostly active at night, anywhere from 5pm PST till about 12am PST (varies). We have a casual-ish atmosphere with a serious desire for progression.
       
      What we are looking for:
      We currently have 15 raiders and we are looking to recruit more members to join our flexible raid roster so that we may progress into Mythic raids (requires 20). At this moment, we are open to all players; we are seeking out tanks, healers, and DPS (prefer ranged). We are open to both new and returning players. As mentioned above, we are also seeking players (any class/spec) that may be interested in joining our Mythics+. We run Mythics+ almost every night. While we prefer a geared player, we value a positive attitude over experience. Any players who are interested and active at the times mentioned above, please contact us. We are also open to players interested in a "filler" type role (can make some raid days but not all).
       
      Additional information and scheduled raids:
      Our raids are currently on Tues/Wed/Sun from 6:30pm PST till 8:30pm PST and we use Curse for our raids. RCLoot Council is a required add-on if you plan to raid with us. We typically try out new recruits for at least a week or two to ensure that it is a good fit for both the recruit as well as our guild. We encourage trials to join us in raids, dungeons, our VOIP, and/or even in other games. Raid spots are not guaranteed due to the flexible raid roster.
       
      Contact:
      If you are interested in our guild or want to know more, please message/add Shells-Bloodscalp or Ryozul#1598. For the horde!
