Giving it a Chance
Okay, I’ve resubbed. I’ve even logged in and updated my mods (which took a day).
So now I’m looking for a guild that raids on a consistent but not overwhelming basis (meaning I could feasibly raid 2 nights a week regularly and occasionally 3 or 4). I’m looking for a guild of adult professionals who have a good sense of humor but aren’t constantly college-dorm vulgar. I prefer to raid with adults, but I’m not opposed to kids, just wary of their reliability.
I’m looking for a guild that takes raiding seriously but understands that it’s a hobby, not a job, and that the players are people with responsibilities outside of the game from time to time. On the other hand I also believe in the social contract that comes with end-game raiding, and prefer guilds that have set rules about punctuality and preparation and spend their raiding time raiding, not desperately looking for a 10th player because one or more of the sign-ups no-showed or consistently waiting on late players who “just need to get their gear gemmed.” I like raiding that’s responsible but reasonable. I’ve called this type of raiding “part-core,” part-time but hardcore.
I can deal with server transfers OR faction transfers, but I’d really prefer to avoid paying for both. I’ve got plenty of characters and a blank-slate willingness to play any of them (though I can’t promise how well just yet).
I have a horde druid, rogue, mage, death knight, hunter, and priest,
I have a an ally paladin, warrior, warlock, and shaman.
My only 90 is the shaman, but everything else is 85 (except the warrior, who’s 81), and thus could be 90 pretty quickly, giving me time to get to know the guild members and culture before diving straight in to the tough stuff.
I have lots of experience; I participated in successful end-game content raids in each expansion up to Pandaria and led successful raids in Naxx (10 and 25). I’ve done heroic modes, too, through ICC.
I’m looking to get started soon, so please if you’re even remotely interested email me through my contact page or shoot me a tweet @sheepthediamond. I’m just looking to converse at this point before making any firm decisions, but I’m also excited (and anxious) to get started.
