[Trial] Group Application

Postby Elysah » 30 Sep 2018, 17:05

Hello to Oze, Brightbuckle, Iodina, Kolijoox, Rej, Jien & Ahktar :)

As you are applying as a group, I think it might be better if we contain all your applications into the same topic, that way I can discuss you as a group, rather than individually :) Given the playtimes of each of us, this forum is likely to be the better way to interact with each of you, individually, and as a collective so everyone is on the same page.

From my conversations with Oze, I understand there are both tanks and healers within your number: we're never ones to turn away the specialist roles, but it's important that we establish that we have 2 Main Spec tanks (plus one OS, ex main tank) who raid with us regularly and three Main Spec Healers. Healer numbers are less of an issue, as in joining us the increased raid base will require increased healers. However, incoming healers and tanks are encouraged to develop a DPS OS to ensure a place in the raid. This is not to say that new players will not get the opportunity to play their chosen role, but we do have an obligation to our existing, regular raiders to continue to offer their preferred MS raiding choice. Our members, however, are fully aware that should their attendance at raids decrease over a significant period of time, they will be replaced by those currently raiding in their OS DPS role.

So, if we're all happy with that: firstly, as with all potential guildies, I would politely request that you each complete an application, which I will post below. Once all applications are completed, we can go from there :)

Completing Yogg +1 when in it was current tier and competing for server first on Anub'arak 25 hard mode

RAID APPLICATIONS ONLY: Dungeoneering & Raiding

Flexible Raider: I will sign to any events I'm able to attend, which would be around a couple a month

I dont have any structural other activities planned on your raid times. So i will almost always be able to join. Only problem at the moment is that i am moving so this week it depends on when i get my internet connection running. The fiber should be connected on Tuesday.


Which of the following days each week are you available?

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

Both days

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)

I always was a ranged DPS player. Played a mage for a long time. Still feels the most natural to me. In legion i really liked my alt warlock so i mained it for BfA. During the first heroics/mythics/mythic+ i didnt really like the playstyle. Partly because of the insane micromanagent that was needed to get decent DPS. Hopefully they will fix this a bit. But i think the problem will be reduced with better gear, traits and higher keys. In the mean time i leveled my demonhunter to be able to tank and DPS mythic+. I really enjoy the fast paced rotation, mobility and utility on it.

I am not an extreme min/maxer anymore, (i was in the past) but i try to keep 1-2 characters (towards the later tiers maybe 3) in raid ready condition.
I tend to get my info on fights from:

http://sunniersartofwar.com/

Mostly because he also has quick links to videos of fatboss and hazelnutty on there

For my characters i use icy veins, bloodmallet.com, lock one stop shop, mmo-champion, and sometimes class specific discord channels



What is your greatest achievement in a raid situation?

The ones i listed above. Especially yogg because that was a great achievement for our guild.


Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader? And if so, why?

No, i am not a natural leader, my english is ok (i think), but not fast enough to raidlead. Also i prefer using push to talk.

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


Other Stuff

Do you know an existing member of the Highland Warriors? If so, who: for how long, and how do you know them?

no, not that i know off


Why do you want to join the Highland Warriors? Things other applicants have included here include, what was it about the Highland Warriors which made us stand out from the hundreds of other guilds recruiting? Have you been aware of the guild prior to applying? Did someone recommend you join us? Did you group with a member of our guild and become enchanted by what a wonderful person they are?

My wow friends and me are looking for an other guild so we can raid again. Oze did a search i recommended you guys. I trust his judgement :P . But looking at the site it looks like a fun, stable guild. Looking at progress i think we are at a level we could pick up raiding. Not realy looking for mythic/hard mode raiding anymore but would like to gradually progress in heroic.Looking on wowprogress it looks like you aim to clear heroic every tier?
Besides that i would like to be part of an active guild and to join in other activities, like legacy raids or mythic+

Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself? You may wish to talk about when you started Warcraft, any previous main characters, any interesting life events or details you would like to share with the guild to find similar interests with our members

Not really atm, Hope to get to know you all better in game.

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

Damn thats a hard question, i never tell jokes,
but found a nice wow one:

whats the diff between a death knight and a hooker?

It would have to be my invention of a new tactic on Gurtogg Bloodboil in black temple creatively using a Prot Paladin Bubble on/off to be able to solo tank it and cheese the aggro swaps.
This was before guides, youtube videos and stuff like that. :)

I mained Frost spec through Legion and also while leveling. Since Frost seemed to be flavor of the month I decided to try fire.
Fire has changed since (in my opinion) since legion and isn't all about crit and the burst window. Instead I now find the spec fluent and it offers some variations to it to maximize it.
It is a challenging spec with correct rune of power placement being crucial so you get full use of the CD*s.

Talents are chosen depending on fights and I use Warcraft logs, raidbots (sim) and Altered Time (mage site) for input together with multiple video makers. I also ofc. test my findings (since I am, unfortunately) not quite as good as the player they sim in simbot...

For me the main reason is I enjoy it and it will get better once gear improves. So sticking to it now and learning it will make it explode once gear improves in future content.

What is your greatest achievement in a raid situation?
Multiple solo kills (when rest of raid is dead) on my prot Paladin. Especially one that I remember where our healer wanded the boss to death after I died.
Or see above although the invention of the strat was outside of the raid, the execution was in the raid.

Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader? And if so, why? I have been a Raid Leader since the original Karazhan. I'm happy if I don't have to lead but will do if needed.

I heard about the guild for the first time in Legion (after we had transferred to Wildhammer from Eonar).
Tbh. the main reason I seeked you out is that I (and the rest) are looking for a active and continous guild. And you seem to have that with the same views I have. Casual raiding, with progress in focus, with time for RL and sticking to some old basics (like this recruitment post. Not seen one of these in 4 years I think..)
And after a talk with Windavell I got the impression we had the same view on the game and how it should be played, and if that is anything to go from, the fit is there so an application was made.


Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself? You may wish to talk about when you started Warcraft, any previous main characters, any interesting life events or details you would like to share with the guild to find similar interests with our members
Think I've shared the most in the posts.
First char was a prot paladin back in Vanilla (yes, that was a thing...)
Tanked and mained that until I stopped playing (MoP) came back in Legion (realised tanking was still messed up, aggro not an issue still.....) It's still with me but if I can't tank and push end game content (hard) it's not fun tanking for me anymore with aggro being a non-issue and it's just follow a rotation pretty much with some dance moves in between. (Heck you can even TAUNT bosses now ffs....) (/rant off)

I enjoy PvP so run with Warmode On. Would like to find some likeminded to learn to PvP in a more organized manner.

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

Gnomes....

But a more serious one:

Fury was the most fun spec that I tried in the beta so I stuck withe it. Have always preferd melee before range class. In legion I played a melee shaman but at the end of the expansion I got bored withe it and change to the warrior.

I tried the revamped disc priest in the beta and found it very interesting. The changes are in the right direction and it's a complex playstyle. I like how it requires planning, knowledge of mechanics and and timing. Yet coming from a background of druid healing, I'm not 100% convinced I'm going to go forward with this one. Hence why I'm bringing my death knight.


What is your greatest achievement in a raid situation?

I'll have to direct you to the previous question about what I'm most proud of.

Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader? And if so, why?

No. As a former raid leader in different constellations, I just feel that moving along with the crowd would be straight up awesome.

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

Have you been aware of the guild prior to applying? Did someone recommend you join us? Did you group with a member of our guild and become enchanted by what a wonderful person they are?

Believe it or not, but this old school way of applying appeals to me. Sends a message of organisation. I like that. But I also like a stable guild with a social atmosphere. If you have that, I'm in.

Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself? You may wish to talk about when you started Warcraft, any previous main characters, any interesting life events or details you would like to share with the guild to find similar interests with our members

Photography, filming and editing is my greatest hobby. Would be great to find a peer in here.

Dont want to move most over as i never play them,they were just for the mage tower skins.Only ones of note on the server are maybe linessa and quietbuckle as they are my enchanter and alchemist if i ever want to level their professions.

The rest i would rather delete, if i had to move them over, than go through the hassle of moving them just to never play them

i enjoyed the dps spec more in legion as it was smoother.In bfa having to soak really drags it down as its rewarding bad play style but with that being fixed in 8.1 im hopeful

What is your greatest achievement in a raid situation?

Im not entirely sure really.i only started raiding so maybe getting ahead of the curve for most of the raid?Ot there was the time i had to step in and tank our heroic kill on helya?Or the fact that my spec changed from pull to pull and i still performed well,i would have nights where i dpsed on one pull and then healed the next as we worked on the kill

Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader? And if so, why?

No

For the whole of legion our two guilds were close together on progress,until the end when the fedaykin died.It is an obvious choice to try and raid here

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

I'm most proud of keeping things hanging together when times are tough. Had a lot of experience running guilds and playing in game politics where waters needed to be calmed after drama. Also my ability to just keep going when most would give up.

RAID APPLICATIONS ONLY: Dungeoneering & Raiding

What sort commitment are you able to offer? (Delete as appropriate)

Core Raider: I can commit to every raid each week

Which of the following days each week are you available?

Wednesday 21:00 CET until 23.30 - Yes
Sunday 21:00 CET until 23.30 - Yes

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)

I have played quite a few characters in dungeons and raids but have settled more on the BM Hunter as I like the playstyle and rotation (I have nerve damage in my hand so I like a smooth rotation).

What is your greatest achievement in a raid situation?

Killing Lich King with less than 10 seconds left before server shutdown and managing to loot so no-one lost anything (Except Oze - he's unluckier than me sometimes)

Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader? And if so, why?

Nope - did it - don't want to do it again. I don't mind passing on knowledge but I don't like taking control in game - I do this for the fun of it and I leave work for where I make people do the horrible stuff they don't want to do

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


Other Stuff

Do you know an existing member of the Highland Warriors? If so, who: for how long, and how do you know them?

No

Why do you want to join the Highland Warriors? Things other applicants have included here include, what was it about the Highland Warriors which made us stand out from the hundreds of other guilds recruiting? Have you been aware of the guild prior to applying? Did someone recommend you join us? Did you group with a member of our guild and become enchanted by what a wonderful person they are?

As this is a group application that should tell you all you need to know. I trust Oze's judgement as he's rarely wrong about people. I've been with these guys forever and it's always a good laugh. I also like the old school application process (despite it giving me a lot of grief tonight!)

Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself? You may wish to talk about when you started Warcraft, any previous main characters, any interesting life events or details you would like to share with the guild to find similar interests with our members

Started playing towards the end of vanilla, really loved the game and mainly for the social side of it - the chats are always legendary. I mained a Rogue for many years but have also run DK tanks when we were short and I've run most things through at least LFR. IRL I'm into custom cruiser bikes and like going to bike rallies, camping out and going on long rides with the folks. So far this year I've done a few including Redcar, Clacton, Dordrecht for our 10 year anniversary event and other rides including Critical Mass rides (will mean nothing to non-riders)


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

Unfortunately I've had the lads for the weekend so all you'd get are Dad jokes and no-one wants that...

My druid became my main end of TBC, and from that day it has always been my number one character. I filled whichever spot was needed tank, melee dps, ranged dps, resto. Resto became more and more my primary role and eventually became my mainspec. It has been every since.
The utility and able to react quick and save different kind of situations is what I like about it.

The above Kael'thas and Lich King kills.
Also I have the original Zul'Aman bear... Which I like to remind Oze that I have as often as possible.

No.

We are applying as a group, and you seem to be a serious and mature guild. It will be nice to come somewhere with some structure.

To be honest, im not that interesting. :P

And the best joke I've seen in an application award....

How do you know you play too much WoW?

-When your partners pants have a low drop rate


That gave me a chuckle at work :yes:


Thanks very much for the applications. If thats all of them now Elysah, and myself, will have a proper read and respond accordingly. It might seem like a long process compared to others but I prefer that we all ensure everything is known upfront so everyone is sure before we make anything formal. I dont like misunderstandings if they can be avoided. Taking on a group of friends is a bigger deal than just 1 person and so is worthy of more consideration.

Thankyou everyone for your replies, and for being patient with us: lot's to read and to take in! And, as Wind says, it takes a little longer to process everything when there is such a large group :)

I think firstly, I would like to talk about the group nature of your joining. It comes across very strongly what an incredibly tight knit, loyal group you are to each other: you've been together a long time and the friendship you have formed is a running theme throughout each of the individual applications. The sort of friendship you have is exactly the sort of bond we have worked hard to foster within our own guild: it's the bread and butter of what keeps a guild together through the good times and the bad. Relationships that go beyond the confines of a raid and creates a community :)

However, it would be naive of us all to not proceed with caution. Whereas, your values reflect our own, it is important to all of us that your group and our guild come together and integrate as a community, rather that we are a inclusive guild of players and not a series of subgroups within a larger group. What I am trying to say is that we are happy to take on existing groups of friends, provided that everyone is willing to be a part of the guild and get to know the people within it, through groups, quests, dungeoneering and raiding together. We feel that it is important that we say this, that it's not just assumed and that we are all clear on what joining our guild will look like going forward.

If we're ok with that, then I have a few questions and comments from the information in your applications... None of which are deal breakers as far as we are concerned, but it will help us plan for the future.

Ahktar/Rej - you both talk about the potential of switching mains, which have tanking OS. From a raiding point of view, we have no preference which you choose as main providing that a decision is made prior to joining our raids. However, if you would be interested in exploring a tanking role then one of our Main Tanks has just stepped down from raiding due to RL commitments? I'd also ask similar of Kolijoox, as you also mention a tanking OS

Rej, you also mention that your current situation is a Flexi, but you're really more of a core raider. Is there a forseeable date which you feel you might be able to revert to your usual availability?

Brightbuckle, you seem to enjoy monks ALOT :rofl:

Iodina, I have seen quite a few guild names which have made me actually lol and your alt guild with your kids is one of my new favourites :)

Jien, resto druid? Say no more, you're in brother tree :grouphug:

Hi Elysah, and thanks for your reply.

I can understand your concerns but I do not think you need to fear that. For example both Kolijoox and Brighbuckle are new friends we met in Fedaykin during Legion. And we just realised we enjoy playing together and share the same goals and playing ambitions. We play with whoever is available and want to play with us I'd like to say. They even let me join most times. :-D
Of course one tends to prefer to play more with people one enjoys playing with but that I do think is something everyone shares. Whenever we have a run going and have spots that need filling we ask in /gchat and all of us prefer doing stuff with guildies then randoms.

When it comes to tanking most of us have experience of it and are willing to fill that role. Do you have any preferences of which class you'd like? I think most of our aplications are to be seen with the feedback from Windavell that you had all tank spots filled.
If you need a tank I can main my tank if that is the case. Else I can vote with confidence for the tanking ability with the rest aswell, but I let them answer the "willingness" question.

I was hoping that would be the case, and there was nothing in your applications to suggest otherwise either, but its better we're all on the dame page from the start :)

It is only in the past few days that one of our main tanks has decided to step down, sadly :( So, if there is someone, beit yourself or one of the others who would like to fulfil that role on a regular basis, then that would be the icing on the cake. We do have an alternative if no-one really wants to take up the mantle and would prefer the roles in which they applied, as Wind has been MT for as long as I can remember (and that's only because I choose to forget his "healing" in the dead bird hat in Molten Core :rofl2: ) and we always shoe horn him back into that box again, by tempting him with some fish or something...

Hi Elysah,

Thanks for the reply and i can follow your thoughts/concerns on taking a group into your guild. I can't comment for all of us, but i think wel all are looking to be part of an active guild. Although we like to run instances together (at least i think) some of us also play with other wowfriends. I also pug (at least try to, cause we are already on the whisp curve, 360 ilvl for normal or raider.io +1000000) and I dont really like that. So I am very interested in joining guild runs outside of the planned raids and get to know and enjoy playing with other ppl.

In response to your question about willingness to take a tanking role I would say I am willing to do that. Before BfA launched i was planning on going tank. But at that time the main tanking roles appeared to be filled. So I switched to warlock. I can take on the tanking role and I think it would be fun to play tank. But tbh I am a bit scared cause i never mained tank and don't have much experience in raid tanking on progression. So starting in a new guild, with a new (very responsible) role is............exciting :)
I also have to look up on some tank tactics, but that won't be the biggest issue.

kind regards,

Ahktar

I do like fish :)

As mentioned previously, if we ask obvious questions its only to ensure everything is out in the open and theres no misunderstandings or assumptions. Its not because we are accusing or hinting anything.

With regards to Tanking I have been the MT since the end of Vanilla, on Druid. I currently am DPS MS only because I wanted to give someone else the chance to tank (a monk). Nox, a druid, has been the other MT for the past 4 odd years but has now stepped back (too old at 36 to be staying up late....).
I try to keep 3 active tanks, and rotate them so they all play the spec/role they enjoy but having a rotation means 3 active tanks, that know the tactics, and have the gear. This means the DPS off spec needs to be good as well though. Same thing for healers.

With regards to preferred classes. I say play what you like, if you really dont care at all then something other than druid would be a nice change. You can view our Audit page to see what our current classes/specs are (http://www.highlandwarriorsguild.com/guild_audit) plenty of classes/specs missing if you want to fill a gap but really dont mind many of the same specs/classes either.

Yeah i have only had the misfortune to know this lot from about half way through legion,around trial of valor.They did not even know i was 30 till this post they thought i was older :facepalm:

I think ive done dungeons with basically everyone in the fedaykin and i still get asked to join groups from other guilds so we really are not exclusive in anyway :) we love doing anything with guild members,oze is also desperate to find anyone to pvp with as well so expect to be asked a lot.The only reason it looks like we are so close knit is because we have pretty much been the only really "active" element of the guild for the past 6 months roughly so its been the case of if we are not all on nothing happens.

And as for the monks i do love them.One day i might be convinced to do something else but for now i love all three specs so have no need to level anything else,can dps or heal the dungeons as needed

Hahaha, looks like we have a choice!

As already mentioned, it's our druid tank who has stepped down. Too old, he reckons... No staying power these young uns ;) Although he's left some big shoes to fill (and lots of brilliant gear drops also, now he's not here to get a legendary every other raid. Which is what I reckon is the real reason - no ledges in BfA!), We don't carry a preference over the class of tank - over recent weeks, we've had a Monk/Druid but prior to that we've been Druid/Druid for a long time. Once upon a time, we had a pally main tank. We had loads of the buggers, couldn't move for them but that was some years ago and the pinks have dwindled. There's a tame one in the raid at the moment, and he is a majestic beast: he's our unicorn ;)

As Wind has said, we like people to play their preferred class and role, so we're happy to let you work it out between yourselves: if one wants to take up the mantle full time, or if there is a rotation system, it's your choice...The only stipulation is that which ever character is settled on as main, then that's the one which raids with the guild, as we operate a single-main only raid system.

Some of us have been together for years and years and others are quite new - it's the variety that makes it work, you won't find a nicer, more accepting and helpful bunch anywhere. You'll never see this lot turn someone down or ignore requests in /g. I'm the old fart but they still keep letting me run with them, I think it's sometimes because they are waiting for me to croak online or something so they'll have good stories for the future...

One other thing, Oze will eventually have everyone PvPing at some point or another. He even makes it fun, it's well worth a try.

Oh and if you ever want even more hilarious stories than they've already posted just ask. We've seen and done it all, the good, the bad and the completely hilarious.

I can tank if we dont have a MT for a raid or in a m+, I try to keep the tank gear up to date.
