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.

      current progress 7/8 Heroic Uldir
      Battle for Azeroth is here, and Fat Finger Dream Team is back and bigger than ever, eager to experience what the new expansion has in store for us.

      Who are we?
      FFDT is a Horde guild located on Tarren Mill, consisting of around 20 players with different backgrounds in gaming. We enjoy a wide variety of in-game content, whether it be raids, mythic dungeons or PVP.
      We’re a healthy mix of semi-competitive and chill people originating from all over Europe, age ranging from 22 to 34+. Many of us have played games together in the past, but we’re always looking for more people to strengthen our ranks, and would happily embrace you with our fat fingers.

      Goals & Schedule
      After successfully creating a strong guild foundation back in Legion, we now strive to keep our community healthy while expanding it in order to be able to enjoy everything that the game has to offer.
      Our initial goal in Battle for Azeroth is to clear Uldir on Heroic difficulty while preparing a Mythic raiding team at the same time.
      Our raiding schedule is as follows: 2 times per week, on Thursdays from 7 pm to 10 pm and on Sundays from 6 pm to 9 pm Paris time.

      What we want from you
      Good attitude - Be nice, be cool and cut down on your salt consumption. We prefer good attitude over numbers such as ilvls, achievements and scores. Communication - Be on Discord with us. Trust me, it makes raiding so much more enjoyable when you get to meet new people, of course without forgetting about some healthy shit talking! Attendance - Be able to attend at least once a week, preferably twice. Preparation for the raids - During progress runs it is expected that everyone has read guides and shows up with proper buffs. For hard content it is also advised to have studied class-specific guides. We are currently looking for flexible people with good game knowledge (both PvE and PvP) and mainly the following classes:
      Druid (balance) Shaman (all specs) Death Knight (frost, unholy) Warlock (affliction) Monk (windwalker)
      tl;dr
      Join us

      It would be awesome to have you onboard, so please don’t hesitate to contact us regarding any questions you might have!
      yours truly,

      Hello and thank you for taking the time to review our Recruitment Post!
      We are <Akyrion Reborn:Draenor> a cutting edge guild who are currently looking for exceptional players to join our ranks in BfA.
      A little about us:
      We are a team of welcoming and dedicated people from countries all across europe looking to experience high end content together. As we have so many different nationalities we do expect a functioning understanding of english as this will be the language used. 
      We pride ourselves on having a fun yet fair approach to all aspects of guild management and aim to achieve great progress while maintaining a positive atmosphere free of toxic and negative behaviour.
      To achieve our goals we have in place the following rules.
      1. We have a zero toxicity policy (no bullying, harassment or naming and shaming during raids) However banter is obviously encouraged and we expect our raid team to be made of sterner stuff 😛
      2. Attendance!!!
      You will be expected to maintain a level of attendance befitting a member of our raid team. This is currently set at 85% (we understand IRL exists but we also look to build team chemistry and minimise total squad size)
      3. Performance
      We are here to push mythic end game content, this requires a certain level of capability but also more important adaptability! 
      4. Accountability
      Understanding where you have gone wrong or accepting constructive criticism is a part of progression raiding.
      5. Preparation
      We expect people to come prepared with not just an understanding of the current boss tactics but those which directly follow, and the part you play in them.
      What you can expect from us.
      *A serious yet fun raiding experience (We take raiding seriously).
      *A friendly space to relax, make friends and enjoy the game.
      *A committed raiding team.
      *Professional and unbiased raid officers willing to listen when disagreements occur.
      What do we require from you?
      *A serious and committed attitude to raiding (We have a no tolerance policy to toxicity)
      All raid members are expected to have raid materials such as flasks, food, enchants and gems prior to said raid.
      *Be able to attend at least 85% of our raids
      *You know your class to a high level and keep yourself up to date.
      *Come prepared for raids (Don't expect to turn up without knowing what's going on with the expectation of being carried)
      *Sign up to all calendar events in advance and post in the AFK channel in discord if you cannot make a raid.
      *Have a working headset! 
      Raid times
      We raid Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 20:30 - 23:30 Server Time
      Invites will go out @ 20:15
      Trials
      As a new trial you will come and join us in raids and will have the same expectations to perform as any other member of the team, you will be rated out of ten on a varied number of criteria (not just your meters!!) by a mixture of other raiders, officers and the gm. We feel this process helps eliminate the "favouritism" aspect which can occur during recruitment and helps us better ascertain how well you will fit into the team as a whole.
      We also have a Social rank for those of you who want a friendly place to call home. We also have a social raid on Sundays which will be accompanied by Alts from the main raiding team. We will also try to help you with your mythic and mythic plus runs.
      If you have any questions feel free to join our discord and message either our Recruitment officer Mallock#111 or myself Mobile#4217.
      In game:
      Mobíle-Draenor
      Notmallock-Draenor
      Kromi-Draenor
      To apply, please join discord https://discord.gg/VGF3ns7
      We are currently open to recruiting all classes and specs dependent on the quality of the applicant.

We have enjoyed progressing in raids up to mythic raiding level, remaining mostly always in the top 5 on the servers with progress & look forward to seeing what BFA has to offer. 
      We are always looking for keen & experienced raiders with the ability to fit well into a team, In BFA we will approach raid content the same as always and remain committed to experiencing as much content as we are able to without the
