Your character's armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/draenor/Gorimor - this is a fresh 120 I levelled up at the end of April this year as I am returning to the game. I have linked my old Holy Paladin's armory in the guild history area, along with my Rogue which was my main character up until MoP.
Your warcraftlogs reports: I have only been playing again since post nerf 1. I have hit a good percentile across different item levels if that means anything to you. Hopefully you can see my spell usage, use of defensives, healthstones, damage taken etc.
Your raiding UI (video or screenshot): https://imgur.com/a/6YJN8XX - In raid I will normally enable Exorsus Raid Tools. I have set it up to show all raid cooldowns and people's personal defensives
What is your guild and raid history and what is the reason for leaving said guilds?
Early guilds - Not too sure of the names of them but I had just started playing mid Cataclysm. I started raiding while BoT was current. You can view my first main character (Rogue) and my original Holy Paladin at the armory links below:
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/alakir/Gorimor - Rogue
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/draenor/Oleuni - Original Holy Paladin (I came back for a couple days previously on this but only for a kick about).
Project Chaos - This is my favourite past guild. I met some IRL friends here. We raided through the end of Cataclysm, clearing Dragon Soul heroic several times with mains and alts. This is where I had a lot of alts going. I had my main - Combat/Sub Rogue, my main alt - disc priest, then my Holy Paladin, Blood DK, Prot Warrior and Resto Shaman. I played all of these characters a lot and come MoP we needed a healer so I re-rolled to my Holy Paladin and haven't looked back since. Everyone in this guild was a great laugh and progression was not too bad. Unfortunately our raid leader Motaru had to quit the game and the GM Imrahil also had a child on the way so we stopped raiding here. Me and my friend Curley, who was mage in the guild at the time, joined a casual guild with his IRL friends called Novella. I ended up quitting the game. I came back in Warlords with Curley and we both joined the guild Crimson.
Crimson - This was my last raiding guild, it disbanded on progress during Mythic Imperator Margok. We were progressing okay through the fights and were on target to become top 100 for Imperator Mar'gok. Progression on the last boss in Highmaul was going really well until we had two new applicants. These two applicants claimed to had been from Nihilum so as you can expect we thought that would be good. They had been kicked from that guild for whatever reason, we took them in anyway. Shortly after, during Imperator fights both of our tanks kept having connection issues. They would D/C during the fights eventually not being able to get back on. Seems fishy but it went on for a while until the GM Nikthas decided to call it quits and the guild disbanded. I quit wow again here.
Gag Sausage For Azerite...... - this is my current guild which is made up of friends and friends of friends. The name does not reflect the average age of the members. I will keep an alt here to do some mythic dungeons with them but I'm looking to get back in to serious raiding.
I am ultimately looking for a serious, stable guild that are looking to push hard through Shadowlands and hopefully aim for top 50 at the least. I feel I have the skill level and knowledge of my class and role to contribute towards this achievement.
Do you have any pertinent alts that could be of use? If so, what is your raiding experience with your alts? - I have a Mistweaver monk at 120 at the moment but I am gearing it and haven't run any raids on it yet. I have a resto shaman, prot warrior and disc priest at level 100 that I can transfer over and level up. I am confident I can pick them back up fast. I raided on them a lot at the end of Cataclysm. The resto Shaman I have actually played a bit recently so I'm pretty comfortable on that. Can also play Ele.
Why do you want to join Pure and what goals do you have?
- I'm looking for a stable guild that is within the top 150 ranks above all. I want to join a guild who raids seriously and have the drive to smash through content. I'm looking for 3-4 raiding days after 5pm UK time (I finish work at this time but it is right around the corner). As you only raid 3 days this gives me space outside of work and raiding for catching up with mates and working on other hobbies. I don't believe you need to raid 7 days a week to push hard. If people are consistent and competent then progression at a lower number of days is fine.
What do you think you can bring to Pure and what do you expect of us as a guild?
Determination - Random pugs can be stressful and normally there are several wipes as people leave, new people join and make the same mistakes - I've stuck through them to clear several times. I have started to run my own.
Drive - I have several kills on some bosses even though I have only been active on the game for a few resets. I raid for fun and to experience every fight and their mechanics above all. It is a game after all and raiding is my favourite part about it so I try to do it as much as possible when I can, even if I have already killed and looted the boss for the week. I am happy to contribute alts even if not required. I am also happy to run a raid several times on my main to help out, even if the character has cleared it for the week.
Fast Learner - Within my 2nd week of being back to the game (I came back end of April 2020 and leveled up this new Paladin on Alliance Draenor). I had cleared normal in the first week and heroic in the second week. While this may be normal when progressing with a guild I have had to do it purely with pugs which can prove difficult. I can jump in to pugs and learn raids fast. The gear I have while leveling is never a cock block as I understand my class and I am very comfortable with healing in general.
Adaptability - I can adapt to things going wrong in a raid for example one Shad'har pug a tank died twice so I handled the taunting for crush/dissolve using my defensives, meaning we didn't wipe.
Ability - While topping the meters isn't everything (and is certainly not most important over mechanics when progressing), I was consistently at the top of the healers for almost every one of the pulls in pugs I join at all sorts of item levels which you can see in my logs. I am confident in my healing abilities and awareness of my surroundings in a raid. I wouldn't aim to pad meters during progression but once it's on farm, gotta get those logs.
Keeping mistakes to a minimum - I very rarely screw up mechanics (of course it does happen, nobody's perfect), but I won't make the same mistake twice. I check up on tactics a lot before fights but I do learn faster by doing. I'll always be prepared.
Versatility - I can Tank and DPS to a high standard (with my tanking being stronger out of the two). I like to keep my tanking spec up to scratch as much as possible and I do enjoy tanking on the side. I also have raided as disc priest, prot warrior, blood dk and combat/sub rogue back when I raided for progression. (Firelands, Dragon Soul and some of Mists).
I do understand that the heroic raids are trivial but being in a casual guild with friends, I don't have much option to show logs anywhere else except pugs. Mythic raid pugs are a shit show of the same mistakes and waiting for hours just to form a group.
I believe that I am an exceptional player in general and from previous experience I know that I can contribute well to a high end raiding guild - Performance, consistency, showing up, being prepared.
How did you hear of Pure?
Do you know anyone in Pure that can vouch for you?
If you have gotten this far, thanks for taking the time to read the bible I've written. I believe that my playing ability is good and would love a trial if you are looking for a healer, I'm just looking for a chance as being a returning player it's quite difficult to get back into a raiding guild. Honey I'm still free. Take a chance on me. If you need me, let me know, gonna be around.
