Other guilds you are applying for: None – you’re it.

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


Professions
Please include details of levels and specialism, where appropriate.

Primary 1: Alchemy (Transmute) – level 600
Primary 2: Herbalism – level 600

First Aid: 600
Cooking: 600

List any special or rare recipes: I have every profession across my account, a few doubled up too. I can make quite a few things and I’m not really sure what’s rare or special anymore! My main’s professions are a little lacklustre I’m afraid, but I love the extra hour and stats on my flasks… and somehow I havn’t had the guts to drop herbalism for something more raid-useful. One day…
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Raiding Experience

Please list your progression and experience of the following raid instances, and indicate if your experience is predominently guild or PuG, along with 10/25 man, LFR or heroic experience:

Cataclysm: Dragonsoul: 8/8 LFR, 8/8 10man normal (guild), 6/8 10 man hc (guild)

MoP: Mogu'shan Vaults: 6/6 LFR, 4/6 10 man normal (guild)
MoP: Heart of Fear: 6/6 LFR, 1/6 10 man normal (guild)
MoP: Terrace of Endless Spring: 4/4 LFR
MoP: Throne of Thunder: 12/12 LFR


Do you have any aspirations to become a Raid Leader?

No – been there, done that. Raid lead everything from ICC to MSV. Stopped as I no longer had the personal time or energy to raid lead and organise raids. It’s rewarding, but it is too much work right now, I just want to raid for fun and follow someone else’s orders (however I do still keep up to date with tactics for fights I am likely to do soon… which right now is only LFR)

Play Style

What sort of position would suit you best in terms of what you are looking for from a guild (delete as appropriate)

Rotated Raider: I can commit to 2 raids per week, on a cycle (for example, every other week)
Social/Backup Raider: I am willing to spot fill when needed, but I understand a place is not guaranteed


Which of the following days each week are you available?


Monday 21:00 CET until 00:00 (most weeks)
Wednesday 21:00 CET until 00:00 (every week unless something unexpected happens)
Thursday 21:00 CET until 00:00 (all but once a month)
Saturday 20:30 CET until 00:00 (sometimes… this one I’m unsure about)
Sunday 20:30 CET until 00:00

Why did you chose your current spec?

I love healing. It’s been the thing I do since I started the game, and although I have tried DPS and Tanking, nothing feels quite as satisfying as keeping an entire raid or team alive. I love how healing makes me feel and I can’t give any better reason than that – I’ve stuck with it through nerf and buff and this has always been my main raiding character in this spec. Healing is never the same, even the same fight as new people fall victim to different things and some fights need me to be less mana efficient…


Tell us a little about your spell/shot/melee rotation & general play style in a raid/dungeon/group situation.

It’s hard to have a rotation as a healer (I just don’t do it because healing is so reactive) – my basic thing is to have earth shield on the tank at all times (if there is another resto shammy in group I try to talk to them about who will take which tank) and I will cast Healing Wave and riptide as a preference for low damage fights. I have taken Telluric Currents as a glyph and find lightning bolting to be a great way to pass the time when nobody is taking damage so that I can regen mana and help kill the boss. For intensive healing nothing beats Greater Healing Wave (big heal) or Healing Surge (fast) but they eat into my mana lots. Intense AOE means cooldown poppin time and chain healing, and for light aoe my healing rain will do most of the work. I like to give my cooldowns a good rotation throughout the fight and try to stick my mana tide totem down as soon as the first healer in raid hits 60% mana (sharing the tide feels better than hogging it…). I cast LB whenever I have a spare second or have to move (if spirit walkers grace is on CD or no healing is needed at that time).


Choose THREE of the following which best describes your priorities for the expansion. Delete those which do NOT apply


- Social questing with guild mates
- Challenge Mode in-guild groups
- Acheivements
While these things are important to me, my one and only priority this expansion is the same as it was all previous expansions: to have a good time, make new friends and enjoy some game time with my old ones. I’ve done so much on that list already, but I’m not sure which is my priority other than what I just mentioned (yes, that is cheating, I know it wasn’t on the list.)

Which of your achievements in WoW are you the most proud of, and why?

I have to be really cheesy here, because it’s true: my friends. I have a nice healthy friends list who I regularly chat to in game and out who I have met in real life (after initially meeting in WoW). Having met so many, everything else pales in comparison.
A WoW recognised one would probably be Glory of the Icecrown Raider (10 man). It was the first big achievement I got with Nemesis as a whole guild. The atmosphere that night was just so fantastic and it will be a memory in game I will never forget (with the help of my handy dandy screenshot too).

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


Other Stuff

Do you know an existing member of the Highland Warriors?

Demitas – he was my previous co-gm in Nemesis. I’ve known him for what feels like my whole WoW lifetime.

Itshammy – he was previously in Nemesis
I may have met more of you through various things – I couldn’t say I know anyone else though!


Why do you want to join the Highland Warriors?

I’ve heard great things about you guys and I would really like to get back into raiding… however not have too many nights taken up by it again.

How will you improve yourself as a Highland Warrior?

Make more friends, learn from them what I can. Chewing on guildmates’ brains is a fantastic pastime and I’ll try not to leave a scar…

Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself?


Erm, I’m always happy to chat and I hope you will want to learn more about me in time. This application took a ridiculous amount of time for me to fill in due to my ridiculous number of alts and reputations so my brain is now a bit mushy. I will try to log out in resto spec, but I make no promises as I have a memory like a goldfish…

Hello Lynara

A very nice app indeed. My eyes actually popped when scrolling down your list of reps! I can see why you were left mushy

Solid guild history and have always seen nice progress with Nemesis. I think if I am not mistaken I think Demi has mentioned you before to me.

With your list of alts which there are quite a few part of the requirements to join the guild would you be happy move all your acts in the guild. Is this something you would be happy to do?

Also you list yourself as back up and rotated raider, can I ask how much raiding you are looking to do? We run flex every weekend evening which generally anyone can sign for (small gear requirements needed) while normal raids are run weds/Thursday from 21.00-23.30 with stricter gear requirements.

Also as a fellow healer I understand completely about your rotations and how it's more reactive. :-)

I would not be moving all of my alts into the guild - at least not for a very long time. I'm happy to add any officer to real ID if you want to keep track of me, but with guild rep, so many alts and a level 25 guild with some socials still left in it, I would not like to abandon it entirely. If were to be allowed in, and if I were to pass my trial and feel at home, then I would consider moving my small army. Otherwise I would have to re-grind 11 reps back to exalted and I would lose control over Nemesis (which I never plan to re-start as a raid guild, but it is nice to have a large bank...)

I hope Dem only said good things, otherwise he is lying, don't believe him! >.>

I don't really know what I want to raid at the moment. I think it's more that I am ready to raid again and just wanted to go somewhere I have been recommended on the same server. I can't commit to every raid ever, but I can normally do 2 days a week - I suppose it depends what you need. My gear isn't quite as impressive as what it once was, but I have a shiny cloak that gives me wings and makes me happy... as well as a shiny 2 set off those celestials.

That's fine then. Having a bank alt is not a problem at all and i can understand that moving all your alts during a trial period is something you would not want to do.

But if everything goes well (as in you are happy with HW and vice versa) would you be happy to move any active alts to the guild?
