What, in WoW terms, are you the most proud of? *This does not have to be a recognised Blizzard achievement*

My person wow achievement would probably be back in Sunwell. I was the guild's Survival Hunter back in the day. And for a period of 3 months I was the #1 Survival hunter in terms of damage on that fight. I used to raid a long time ago on a US server with a guild called Lobster Brood, and we were pushing Top 10 world kills back in those times, obviously Server firsts no World first skills, think we did get 7th kill on Kil Jaden though.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


RAID APPLICATIONS ONLY: Dungeoneering & Raiding

Tell us a little about your Mythic+ experience - what +level are you most confident with? What's your highest +level?
So I raided in wow from Base game thought WoD, skipping Pandas and most recently having skipped all of Legions. So in terms of current experience I have none what so ever. I used to raid hardcore from level 60 (MC/BWL days) - Cataclysm. I raided casually in WoD something most of the harder content but being always being a couple months behind in the guild I was in.


Please list your progression and difficulty mode, ie LFR, Normal, Heroic, Mythic, ie 5/12 HC

Nighthold - N/A
Tomb Of Sargaras N/A
Antorus, The Burning Throne N/A

What sort play are you looking for?

Core Raider: I can commit to every raid each week
Flexible Raider: I will sign to any events I'm able to attend, which would be abound a couple a month
Backup Raider: I am willing to spot fill when needed, but I understand a place is not guaranteed

Any or all really, I'm not going to be bend out of shape if I'm not a core raider as I know if you do accept me it would be taking a huge risk to say, okay you can be a core raider. I'm mainly here to meet some cool people a post of yours caught my attention on the blizzard forums. And sounds like the a place I'd like to be. I have prior raid experience in other expansions and I used to be a very good raider. I lead raids and was the DPS lead for every class. I would watch hours of our own raids back that I recorded to make sure everybody was in the right place, analyse dps meters to make sure rotations were set. I obviously don't want to do that any longer, but while I'm a total nub in terms of current content I learn quick and I will learn what I'm doing and hopefully do it well.

Which of the following days each week are you available?

Wednesday 21:00 CET until 23.30
Sunday 20:30 CET until 23.30

Both are good days for me.

Tell us more about why you chose your current spec. (You may wish to tell us a little about your spell/shot/melee rotation & general play style in a raid/dungeon/group situation or link stats websites in support of your application)

This will be difficult because I have to start a new wow account. I played wow in the US, met a girl and now I live in the UK. Since the accounts don't transfer over I basically have a brand new account which is 2 days old, and I have a few 110 tokens to us, which is why I was thinking of using on a Druid and Hunter, my two favorite classes from back in the day.

Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader? And if so, why?
I do not, though if the points comes where I can be of any help I'd have no issue with pitching in any way I can.

Other Stuff

Do you know an existing member of the Highland Warriors? If so, who: for how long, and how do you know them?
I've lived in the UK since August of 2017, I barley know my neighbors, haha.



Why do you want to join the Highland Warriors?
I saw a post on the blizzard forums about the guild. This is what caught my attention...

"We're are a twelve year old guild, which is an achievement in itself - almost as old as the Hills(brad) ;) We’d likely describe ourselves as a casual raiding guild, but this doesn’t really do us justice – we’re not just about raiding and we’re more than the sum of our raiding parts: we’re a friendly community of like-minded players..."

Those few sentences made me feel like this could possibly be a guild for me to ease back into wow after a long break and hopefully call home.

Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself?
All my wow experience was on Bloodhoof/Thunderhorn US. It sucks starting over with a brand new account. I honestly thought I was done playing WoW after WoD, but after moving here at aged 31 it's harder to make friends than you think. So I decided to come back to wow and play a game I used to enjoy with people who still enjoy it. Hopefully make a few friends and have some fun. I'm American and I meet a girl here in the UK, we're getting married In January and I teach primary school. Well I did in the states I'm in the process of getting certified again here.
I'm a pretty laid back guy Born in Hawaii, grew up in California, Moved to Texas and now I live in the UK. Not much to me really. Just like having fun and gaming with like minded people.



Finally, as you should always end on a laugh, tell us your best joke... ;)

I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, 'You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit.' As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.

Hello there, Dawbson! Thankyou for your application :)

Firstly, let me say welcome to the U.K.! Although depending on which part you’re living in, the welcome is more or less genuine... If you’re north of Birmingham, it’s the warmest it can be, if it’s London, the less said about that the better. Hekate is the mayor so...

Your application is an enjoyable read.

Always lovely to see a returning player, especially from Vanilla. And a Hunter too! A majestic class. Literally couldn’t move without tripping over one back then!

As you’re just restarting out, after such a sizeable break, I think it’s better we have a chat in game and we can reminisce about the good old days and go from there.

What’s your online time like over the weekend?

My play time is totally open this weekend. So i can be on whenever. Typically I’m on later in the evening because I try to game with my old friends (all american so the time difference is a killer). But yeah I’ll add you (i think I did already) and I’m always open for a chat.
