Tell us something about your class that you don't think most people know.
The DK Tier sets in Legion look way better on Arms Warriors. My pvp prestige six sword skin works perfectly with T19 Mythic.
Tell us about yourself - age, timezone, schedule, fetishes, etc.
I am a 28 year old Cyber Security student nearing the end of my associates degree and paying for it with my GI bill. I am living in New England and most of my classes take place between 8 am and 2 pm. I do have online courses and will have two of them during the summer so timing is not an issue with each. My fetishes would probably include beautiful African sisters and a hell of a lot of guns (I'm a shooting instructor). I am a reliable member of my raid team taking a shot at a bigger server because BFA looks incredible.
Outline your previous raid experience. Please be as detailed as possible, including any links if applicable.
I began playing a month before the release of WoD and I am a very new player. My first taste of Mythic progression was Gorefiend. My recent Guild Group Two picked me up when that first mythic guild fell apart. I am currently on US-Suramar/Draka and I am on the only Mythic raiding guild for Horde. Links will be provided below:
Detail your off-spec capabilities (ie: gear level, experience).
I have the gear to play offspecs. In my current guild there is a main tank that is a Prot warrior. Our Fury have never been reliable raiders due to real life commitments. I have 75 in each weapon and nearly 81 in Arms. I actually picked this guild to apply too because I noticed Bloodward's profile and I would like to have that type of role in WoW. I don't think my current playing/raiding/farming can get me there on such a small server. I'm taking a chance and using this reply as feedback on becoming a better player. If we don't work out then it's not the end of the world. I play Arms because I am best at it and I have never been pressured to learn the other specs as well. I want to challenge myself in a higher raiding environment to round myself as a player and a member of a team.
How do you prepare for raids? Be specific.
I enjoy Mythic Plus even if I hate Titanforging as a system. I am incredibly excited with the current raid because I love the lore of Warcraft. I have had a reliable roster for two and a half years with my current guild and I do a lot of herbalism for the gbank. I simcraft and min/max my character as often as reasonable. I follow two warriors on youtube (Corejo for Arms and Kelade for Fury) to keep on top of those theory guys and I follow Thete, HazzleNuttyGames, T&E, and more for WoW news/exciting things. I am a follower in the raid environment. I trust the people who can see the bigger picture better than me and I have a very high tolerance for progression.
What do you feel that you, personally, bring to a guild and raid environment?
I can bring a reliable raider that enjoys progressing on the hardest bosses this World can throw at us. I have enjoyed Warcraft since I was in the 3rd grade with my brothers. I am "new" to WoW because I knew even as a 7th grader if I picked it up I would play it at the highest content I could. The current environment I am in right now is challenging but I don't feel it fits me anymore. I can be online a lot because my computer classes only require one of my screens. I have helped dozens of guild alts through content such as mythic+ carries and I will show up for raid or die trying. If we work out as players I will ensure the officers have my number and points of contact because the reality is I have one unexcused absence in 2 and a half years of progression and that was due to a friend of mine leaving to Kuwait for six months the next day.
Tell us your best joke.
I remember a few good ones but none can compete with what shows up in your mirror every morning.
What made you apply to Negatory?
I want to help a team that is focused on killing content at the cutting edge. From the outside looking in Negatory has the environment I am looking for. I want to be part of this system of success and if I am a fit I want to take this shot.
Were you referred by an existing Negatory member? If yes, who?
I have never spoken to a member of Negatory.
Negatory is a mature guild, and as such you will be subject to foul language, off-color humor and "adult" discussions - understood?
I was in the Marines for five years, I don't think it will be more offensive than that.
Is there any additional information we should take into account when reviewing your application?
I've felt that my current raiding environment is not a fit for me and I want to succeed at the highest level. Negatory has a raiding history of reliable progression and reliable rosters. I know this is an incredible achievement and it doesn't "just happen." The work ethic of this guild is impressive. I can make the 3 nights of progression and the offnight with my current schedule. As I stated above the Fury warrior Bloodward caught my eye as I was searching and I'd like to be a player with 39 mythic kills two months into the release of a tier rather than a mythic player who has 11 kills so no cache yet. I know I will be able to spend the time for progression. I enjoy the challenges of mythic raiding and I believe that the team that makes Negatory can use another dedicated warrior for progression, mythic+, ball busting, and overall fun as a community.
