Withholding IRL name for now, call me paranoid if you wish. I usually go by Raso/Ras.

What is your guild and raid history and what is the reason for leaving said guilds?
AotC: Black Gate and 6/13M
AotC: Helya and 2/3M
8/10M NH before my team went on a break (which I was against)
AotC: Kil'jaeden and 1/9M
Due to drama which I will happily explain in detail (If asked) I was removed from my team. The team has since been in its own string of controversies prompting a mass exodus to the rival guild on the server... where they then disbanded. I'm glad I left as early as I did.
The day after killing Mistress I quit raiding in ToS and Runic. A mixture of toxic behaviour from a handful of core members and the raid's punishing mechanics made me not enjoy my time there. I would like to point out however that the team did then go on to achieve 9/9, it's not a personal achievement but hopefully it shows the skill of the players that remained and the fact that I was on par with them, I have since surpassed them in world ranking as they are still 10/11M.
I enjoyed my time in VLR quite a lot and truly wish I didn't have to leave. Sadly the powers that be did not want it to last as the officers came to the decision that the group would be disbanding only 3 or so days after achieving Cutting Edge. A mixture of burnout and higher aspirations swept over our group and in under a day it went from 30 players online to only 4.
Do you have any pertinent alts that could be of use? If so, what is your raiding experience with your alts?
I currently have 12 Characters at 110 that I switch between regularly as I plan to obtain all of the mage tower appearances. With the new expansion only a few months away I could happily switch to another class although I do prefer to be wearing plate. I would say I am most familiar with Paladin, Warrior, Warlock and of course my current DK main, each of those 4 have seen AotC in multiple raids and I achieved Cutting Edge: Xavius as a Prot Paladin. I am fairly confident when it comes to playing most if not all classes/specs and would only falter when it comes to healing.
Why do you want to join Pure and what goals do you have?
I would like to join Pure because after watching a handful of kill videos I came to the conclusion that the guild was populated with players that are both polite and skilled which is what I am looking for in every guild I apply to/join. Achieving cutting edge is quite prestigious but if you did not enjoy the time spent trying to achieve it then it is worthless in my eyes. I am searching for a guild where a serious challenge can still be entertaining.
If I was to join Pure I would strive to play to the best of my ability, improve on a regular basis and most of all enjoy doing so.
What do you think you can bring to Pure and what do you expect of us as a guild?
I believe I can bring the mindset of a Cutting Edge player that has only ever tired of raiding due to the toxicity of others. One who takes on 300 wipes with a smile and will continue to push even in downtime. A player that has gone from clicking to mythic raiding in a single raid tier and continues to learn with each passing day. I may start out inexperienced at times but within a week (If not shorter) I can overcome a top tier challenge and have done so with every goal I have set for myself in the last 2 years.
What I expect from Pure is a raiding team that will push me to my limits without screaming in my face or placing blame squarely on my shoulders. A team that understands mistakes happen but still asks for more. I should feel motivated to excel without the looming threat of a demotion.
How did you hear of Pure?
After my current guild fell under I began to search Wowprogress for English speaking guilds in the EU
Do you know anyone in Pure that can vouch for you?
It might be a bit of a stretch but I remember being in a few raids alongside Zhiu during my time in Raze. We only had a handful of interactions so I doubt he remembers me. What he could do however is ask his contacts in Raze, perhaps they would have some insight into my mannerisms. Some past drama may skew the responses however, it depends on who is asked. It could as well be a completely different Zhiu in which case this is one odd coincidence.
If I'm honest I have low expectations when it comes to this application. I may have cutting edge but I have not proven myself as some top 100 raider. The problem is without finding a top 100 or so guild to accept me or a group of amazing players with no credentials, both of which would require an incredible amount of luck, I would never be able to achieve such a feat. So, to quote Abba, Take A Chance On Me.
