This is totally weird for me. Ive not created a forum login and introduced myself using a a "fake" (see in-game) name since briefly joining Death & Taxes for original Naxx 40 back in 2006-8 whenever that was. Briefly because neither the friend i followed nor myself were particularly that consistently hardcore. If i recall correctly, my friend made 2 or so months longer than i did which i attribute to his Manitoba winters vs my Boston ones. In any event, the group of wow friends i raided with through MoP i met via CS 1.3 servers, and my 13 year old gamertag was DogOfWar as a MGS reference, so Dog's the name I listed up top, but im totally ambivalent about naming and dont think i have a single WoW character with that name. Hopefully this serves as something of an introduction. I tend towards playing tanks, and have mained everything except a druid (ever) or dh (have done high m+, never non-trivial raiding). I mained heals during wrath, mop. There was a brief time in vanilla i mained melee dps (rogue). This was a long way of saying i am both open to playing anything, and imho can in short order prove im early CE quality in any of the three roles in any class (though i think id quit before having to deal with what i understand the guardian druid 2 button rotation to be -- im just greatful theyve rarely been meta). I hopefully dont sound too conceired after the above. Your guild seems to have been around as lomg as i have, which is a plus, and you reference bullfinch's mythology and fleur de lis in your naming writeup, so i suspect i could get along with you. Geared a 465 blood dk (easy switch to unholy/frost i think) in past two weeks (Greatestdead-Tichondrius) i could transfer, but could also pretty easily grab another 120 and gear, particularly with m+ helping hands. Hope to chat.
Hello SOHCO team, After seeing your recruitment thread on the EVE forums, I'm interested in joining your ranks. I've rejoined EVE after many years away, making me a bit of a new player with some prior experience. Your team seems like a great fit for me from an attitude / maturity perspective. I'll reach out in game to speak further, but wanted to make my post here prior to doing so. Best- Wuzin
The Undead know best when it comes to the darker side of magic. And setting foot in the unholy ruins of Lordaeron, one must always...beware the shadow. One of the highest and most skilled practitioner of the art of shadow is one called Urmac, a Pandaren Shadow Priest hailing from the unknown realm of Akama. This lonesome Shadow Priest has been practising her dark arts for 172 days and 20 hours, but who's counting? Beginning her humble beginnings destroying the Scourge with her companions who claimed to only be smiting evil because they were <Rep Farmers Inc> yet still defeating all her enemies during the reign of Kel'Thuzad before the terror that was Yogg'Saron surfaced. Times were tough during the reign of the old god, and the poor Shadow Priest and her companions were unable to conquer the old god, and only defeat two of its heroic followers. Then on to the Trial of Crusader to prove her worth along side her companions, defeating the corrupted Nerubian King Anub'arak, but not bothering with the more heroic trials of the crusader. Then she went on in an attempt to conquer the Lich King himself, but her companions were unable to vanquish him, despite being with her companions for a year and a half, only two of his heroic underlings were defeated. Urmac was unsatisfied with her companion's inability to defeat the Lich King, so she moved on to another group of companions, who were <Hellbent> on defeating the Lich King. Her new companions were fierce, and she was able to defeat all of Icecrown Citadel's most heroic foes...but yet, the true power of the Lich King proved too much for the group. After defeating the evil Twilight Drake Halion the Shadow Priest found herself alone in the sea of companions who had all decided to go their separate ways after 8 months of fun, but with some luck, she was brought into another group of companions who loved to play <Team Sports>. All those hours on the court, rink, and field paid off, as the Shadow Priest and her companions defeated the Lich King once and for all, along with the more powerful Halion with only 10 of their strongest companions. Then...the real terror came. The team found 15 more companions and began to fight against a new threat, the one they call, Neltharion, Deathwing. The Shadow Priest and her companions went off on a slow start, only defeating 5 of the 6 minions of Nefarion the Risen, 2 out of 6 of Cho'Gal's underlings, and only the Conclave of Wind that was summoned by the Wind Lord himself, all challenging heroic foes. Suddenly, the ground shook, the fires of Hyjal blazed harsher than ever, as Ragnaros was risen once more. The companions managed to defeat Ragnaros, if not for it escaping their grasp at the last second. Only able to kill one of Ragnaros' most heroic challengers, but then something unthinkable happened to Urmac. After 8 long months with the great team, it all went wrong. A Terrible darkness invaded her soul, leaving her unable to raid, no matter how hard she tried. For four long months she struggled to find the strength to even enter the world of Azeroth, but finally once those four months were over, she had returned once more. Though her sports Team was not the same when she returned. They too sought to move elsewhere, and with the help of her friends, she moved on to a guild that certainly was an <Acquired Taste>. The Shadow Priest was inexperienced and under geared from having been down and out for those four months, but she managed to bounce back, completely terminating all of Ragnaros and his foes at their strongest, and not just that, she also destroyed Deathwing himself, along with his Spine, and his Warmaster at their most heroic, being the first group of 25 people to do so in their realm. The Firsts did not stop there either, the Shadow Priest discovering the land of Pandaria, where she and her 25 companions were the first to down all of their most heroic kills on their realm. Downing 11 our of the 16 mightiest foes. The Shadow Priest also has experience in progressing on the Heroic Protectors of the Endless, and the Heroic Lei Shi. Though the Pandaren was quite aware of just how much of an <Acquired Taste> her companions were, it seemed that some were unaware just how strong of a taste it could be. This caused several companions to flee the realm in search of greener fields, along with others leaving Azeroth forever. Urmac stayed determined, however, though the New Year was not a good one for a Shadow Priest who's single target strength was not as strong as others. This caused the Priest to have to relax and cheer on her companions on the bench, but until now, the Priest is not waiting around anymore. The guild is no longer trying to progress and has allowed their members to move on if they wish, and the Priest is tired of not progressing. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ More about the Shadow Priest: - The Priest has always done what she could to attain the best gear possible. http://us.battle.net.../Urmac/advanced - The Priest always does everything she can to be at her most valorous every week since she set foot into Pandaria. http://i50.tinypic.com/t9ihif.jpg - The Priest is well prepared for Wrathion's future tasks. [the 40 Trillium Bars in case you don't catch it] http://i47.tinypic.com/2wmktq8.jpg - The Priest has shown her capabilities in battle.[see December 30, January 10] http://www.worldoflo.../guilds/222762/ - The Priest has many lovely different outfits. http://i50.tinypic.com/2gspvm8.jpg ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Now about the player...who is not a girl, GOTCHYA. My name is William, I am 27 years old, I am from Ontario Canada, and I have a Master's Degree in Teaching, a Teaching Degree, and an Honours in English Literature, I currently have 9 characters of each class 85 and up, a 71 BM Monk, and a level 0 Hunter. I work as an executive administrator at a Health Centre, and can easily make raid times. The only unforseen circumstance that could make me late for a raid is if after-work meetings take longer than they should, which should not happen anyway since your start times are later than my previous ones. My average FPS during high graphic encounters is 30, my average latency is 100ms. I have Vent and Mumble, I have several high tech toys, one of which is a SiberiaV2 headset which I have no problems using and being vocal. Aside from WoW I also play Minecraft on a private server with some RL friends, a large Steam collection. Currently working on the Dead Space 3 campaign, my favourite colour is Blue, I live with 2 roommates, in a tiny apartment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Last few things (promise) - This is the first and only guild I have currently submitted an application to. This is because I tried so hard to stay on my server, but it just won't happen. My guild has called it quits and none of the officers, or the GM himself are trying to recruit back to 25 for 5.2, so I am moving on. Any other questions I am more than happy to answer. Shadow is also looking much better for single target in the patch. I always stay up-to-date with the PTR changes, and those that are implemented so far look to be putting Shadow in a much better overall position. Of course it is PTR and things could still change, but so far these changes are quite good: - 5% increase in damage from all sources when in Shadowform - Maximum Number of Shadowy Apparitions increased to 10 - Both tier bonuses are increases in single target DPS [Apparitions have a chance to increase the duration of SWP/VT & VT has a 10% change to spawn an apparition] - Shadow word: Insanity has been greatly improved: a 3 orb Devouring Plague with the Talent makes Mind Flay tick for 100% increased damage while DP is on the target. In closing, I think I would make an excellent addition to your guild. My attendance record has been nearly flawless in every guild, and as a teacher, I am always looking to learn and improve be it about my class, encounters, gear and beyond. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I sat down in front of his computer and after rolling my very first character (Akumamiyu), I made my way around Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms with my loyal kitty by my side. After dinging 70 and getting the key to Kara, I experienced my first raid...and I was hooked! With my one-button "steady shot auto shot" macro and my leather working drums, I mashed my keys as a BM hunter from the dark corridors of Karazhan to the vast interiors of Black Temple. Unfortunately my guild at the time burnt out after Mother Shazrah right before the blanket nerfs were put into effect (all those hours farming Primal Shadows *shudder*), and we did not start to raid again until WotLK. As we moved from the Outlands to the chill of Northrend, my hunter was placed into a retirement home and her were pets stabled. To better suit the class needs of my guild, my protection/holy paladin (Pikako) picked up her sword and shield to main tank Naxxramas (10/25), Malygos (10/25) and Obsidian Sanctum (10/25). Unfortunately the guild began to fall apart a few weeks before the release of Ulduar, and I joined an Alliance guild on my resto shaman (now called Chibimaruko since she has gone through a couple of identity changes throughout the years). With this guild, I dropped my totems, tossed Riptides and Chain Healed all through Tier Seven (Naxx, Maly and OS), Ulduar with hardmodes (10/25), Trial of the Crusader/Trial of the Grand Crusader (10/25) and the beginnings of ICC. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks into Tier 10 my roomie's cat was chasing my bunny around the room and knocked over my computer tower. Not sure how the crash managed to completely screw up my computer, but I had to switch to my laptop which could not support 25-man raiding. I spent the final months of WotLK raiding strictly 10-mans on both my paladin and my shaman, and continued with 10-mans with the changes introduced in Cataclysm. When Deathwing broke Azeroth and brought WoW into Cataclysm, I raided casually on my priest (now Chibihikari the gnome) and worked on Heroic Tier 11 on my resto-shaman. My shaman's guild fell apart at the beginning of Firelands, and it was fortuitous that many of my friends returned to WoW around that time and asked for me to raid with them as a disc priest healer. We stamped out the fires of Tier 12 (6/7 Heroic) and although we were constantly having to replace one or two players during the entire tier, we jumped feet first into Dragon Soul and quickly cleared it on our first night. Our guild suffered from the same issues of Tier 12 (8/8 Heroic) and had to replace one or more players on an almost semi-monthly basis, but we carried on while I healed on both my resto shaman and my priest. Now here we are, in the Mists of Pandaria! The beginning of the expansion started slowly, and unfortunately a family emergency had me going to Tokyo for a month. By the time I came back, the guild had all but collapsed and all of the raiders had gone their separate ways. Frantic to find a raiding guild, I jumped into the first one that caught my eye, and although I have been progressing well with them, the raids just ends too late, so my search continues... Raiding Summary (aka the "TL;DR") Burning Crusade: Karazhan, Gruul's Lair, Magtheridon's Lair, Tempest Keep, Serpent Shrine Caverns, Mount Hyjal, and Black Temple (up to Mother Shaz when current) - (Character: Akumamiyu - BM Hunter) Wrath of the Lich King: Naxxramas (10/25), Eye of Eternity (10/25), Obsidian Sanctum (10/25), Ulduar (10/25), ToC (10/25) and ICC (10 - Heroic Clear minus LK) - (Characters: Pikako - Prot Paladin and Chibimaruko - Resto Shaman) Cataclysm (10-man): BWD (6/6 Heroic), BoT (3/4 Heroic), Tot4W (1/2 Heroic), Firelands (6/7 Heroic) and Dragon Soul (8/8 Heroic) - (Characters: Chibihikari - Disc Priest and Chibimaruko - Resto Shaman) SoH and why would you want me? After going through the many guild recruitment posts on the WoW forums, yours drew me in and grabbed me! I simply love the way it is written and what it has to say. Not only do you take raiding seriously, but you also realize that there are actual human beings behind the screen and at the keyboard. It is a pleasure to see a guild that puts an emphasis on personalities as well as game play. What will you get with me as a raider? You will get someone who understands that raiding is a group effort that is only as strong as its weakest link and therefore pushes themselves to never be that wobbly link. From theory crafting to research to testing out skills in dungeons and LFR, I do whatever I can to make sure that I can perform to my optimum level. I am also borderline OCD about making sure that I have all of my food buffs, flasks, gems, enchants, etc. and gold necessary for repairs and the aforementioned items. My Healing 411 Healing has been my passion in WoW from the first time I used Flash of Light in Burning Crusade. As much as DPS enjoy seeing the HP of the boss dip, I love watching the boxes in Grid stay nicely topped up and full (with the exception of Heroic Anub *shaking angry fist*). I have rolled with the changes that have occurred in healing from the times when you could spam utterly inefficient heals to victory towards the end of WotLK to the 180 degree flip at the beginning of Cata where one Flash Heal/Healing Surge would eat half your mana pool and now to MoP where I think a fine balance has occurred. Depending on what role I am playing (tank or raid heals or both), my healing changes as needed. Tank healing has me mainly focusing on keeping a PW:S on them as soon as Weakened Soul allows it (and tossing it out on someone else if my Rapture is available and there will be incoming damage to break it), Greater Heal for continuous healing (with Inner Focus used for a nice crit heal), Flash Heal for any "Oh sh...!" situations, and depending on my other healers, I will pop a Spirit Shell on them with Greater Heal to get a good barrier if necessary with PoM and Cascade as both single target and raid heals. Raid Healing consists mainly of PoH (yummy DA procs), with PW;S for damage reduction and rapture procs, and Spirit Shell for the predicable damage that occurs in almost all of the current boss fights. Cooldowns such as Pain Sup, Void Shift and Barrier are used as necessary. Stat Priority and Spec Choice: Spirit and Mastery please! Once 5.2 is released, I will be prioritizing some Crit as well since Spirit Shell will no longer benefit from Mastery. The changes to how specs work in MoP has allowed for a lot of customization on a fight by fight basis and I keep a stack of Tomes in my bags to reglyph and spec as necessary for each fight. About Me: I was born in Tokyo, raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and currently living in Queens, NY with my husband, best friend, Corgi, bunny and my roomie's demon spawn cat. I graduated from the University of Hawaii with a double major in Journalism and Asian Studies, and also spent a year at Sophia University in Tokyo as well. Currently I work from home as a website content writer for an online activity company that sells tours and activities around the world. Basically I write about how awesome something is and why you should spend $200 on the tour ^_^ I am also a theater fanatic and a founding member of a non-profit theater company focusing on experimental/avante garde productions. When I am not working, theater-ing, or playing WoW, you can find me downloading copious amounts of anime, traipsing about the Metropolitan Museum of Art or watching one of the many theatrical productions that are always showing throughout the city. My husband also introduced me to the wonders of Steam and I have been playing a variety of games ranging from Civ to Recettear to Lego Harry Potter. Console wise, I have been sticking with Little Big Planet, Dance Central and the Star Wars Kinect game. Hard core amirite? Conclusion: Thank you very much for taking the time to read my application, and no matter what comes as a result, I wish you all the best of luck in life and in WoW~!
