Character Name: Riccie Battletag: Ric#1661 Working Armory Link:https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nerzhul/riccie Class and Specialization: Demon Hunter/Vengeance Do you have any relevant alts or previous mains we should know about? Have played and tanked everything since TBC (tbc tanked as a prot paladin, wrath/cataclysm tanked as a blood dk, mists and wod went back to my paladin and now demon hunter) *Edited* Just to add that both my DK and paladin tanks are 110 but poorly geared and not paying much attention to them. Provide a screenshot in an active combat situation, preferable a raid: Video of my guild's first mythic krosus kill a few weeks ago from my POV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=844DB-AwSx8 (not plugging my channel, this is just for me and my guildies to watch our kills, but may give you a better idea of my situational awareness and other things you may want in potential candidates) Include relevant World of Logs or Warcraft Logs parses: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/nerzhul/riccie
How did you hear about teamLUST, and what made you consider applying? Saw a post on the official forums, I am looking for a new home that takes progression a little bit more serious going into the next tier. Currently i am 5/10m with some pulls on mythic Tich
Will you be able to maintain 90% attendance? Yes
What, if any, conflicts do you anticipate with this schedule? no
Describe your overall guild history from what you remember, starting when you began raiding. What experiences did you enjoy? Why did you leave or why were you removed from previous guilds? What did you learn? Be honest: Like mentioned above, i have been playing the game since the release of tbc and it was my first mmo experience and instantly fell in love with tanking, i guess you can say i feel i perform better under pressure which is perfect for the role. I also learned a lot more about leadership that helped me shape a lot things i ended applying to my business when i was self employed. I can honestly say that i have never been forcefully removed from a guild, i came into the game when i was a little older and WoW was really my stress reliever so i didnt bring outside stuff into wow or let anything in wow affect me...having said that, doesnt mean that im Gandhi and there has been occasions where i didnt agree with guild policies or raid situations, but never created drama over it.
More about you
What motivates you to raid in a mythic progression guild such as ours? In what way do you picture yourself standing out from other applicants? Why should we want you in our raid? I hate to give the same old beaten script im sure you guys get about 100 times a day, but you will get in me a tank who will come prepared to raids knowing his role, consumables, encounter mechanics and how to get the most out my class toolkit and also gear for any given boss fight, currently i have all of the vengeance legendaries and including sephuz and prydaz and i have a few different gear combinations with the different legendaries that i use depending on boss fight.
What would you consider to be your best and worst qualities? Try not to mention things already in this application: Best qualities? i would say dependability and loyalty. Loyalty to me is a big deal and if my guild history says anything is that. I have "sacrificed" progression for the sake of not leaving friends behind. Progression is nice, but more important than progression to me is being in a place i enjoy being a part of and surrounded by people i like. Worst? You can say that i have no filter and i tend to be, in the words of my current GM "brutally honest and blunt" which can sometimes lead to feelings getting hurt or things misconstrued.
Do you have any questions or final comments for us? Nope, but my current guild's name is <Lust> so im halfway yours?
