Hey everyone, I saw a reply from you guys in a recruitment thread on Reddit and I ended up here.
It looks like previous introduction posts kinda went over history, so here you go. I'm a 31 year old IT Professional (systems management) who has been playing MMOs since EverQuest. I played EQ1 for a few years but was mostly just solo, played a druid, always had fun camping the dwarves in Butcherblock for easy xp / monies. When Everquest 2 released, my guild switched over and I spent most of my college years playing that. Most of the time I was running dungeons, but was also on a pretty strict raiding schedule (6 out of 7 days--still burnt out from that). Around 2008 I started playing WoW and tried all of the expansions since then, but never played them for much longer than a month or two. There were a few MMOs in-between, including SW:TOR, Aion, Rift, Eve...really just tried most of the "big" ones but didn't stick with any other than EQ and WoW. A lot of my old guildmates are friends I know in person, but they aren't too interested in MMOs anymore, so I've decided I'd like to branch out a bit on my own.
I have a lot of experience with healers, as that is the majority of what I play in MMOs, but have played DPS a bit. Healing seems much more dynamic to me, and I enjoy that challenge. Also I avoid tanking since I'm terrible at it.
I played FF14 when ARR was released and got my white mage to level 50. Didn't spend much time in the game after finishing the main story, and I think I quit before the first major patch. Now it looks like I have about four or five patches worth of quests before I can even start Heavensword, so that will be fun.
Let me know what else you'd guys like to know
Oh...also, I have a cat.
