Hello, My name is Shaun

  • - West Coast
  • - Later Evening Focus


I am a long time gamer, 33 now. I started serious gaming back in Diablo II buying and selling gear on Ebay. (ugh... I'm old) I've since gone from a very long tenure in World Of Warcraft as a cutting edge Guild/Raid leader on Alliance/Thunderhorn. Our biggest exploits were back in BurningCrusade and Wrath of the Lich King as a Top 25 in the World Raid achievements and execution ladders. Since then, Our guild slowly vanished as life and age has caught up to all of us. 

Personally, I am self/unemployed dealing with medical issues ranging from abdominal to knee surgeries and have yet to get back to the workforce. Something I am struggling with (and the reason I have so much free time) I have held many wide ranging jobs. So if you have a question, Throw it at me. I might surprise you! My hobbies are Radio Control Car Racing; Something i've been sponsored over and been rather successful in bringing home trophies and met some great people. It is a true passion of mine and have distanced from. I hope to come back to it soon. (Yes, There is money in RC and it's very serious :P )

My brother, Artaios was my officer, and main healer back then. He and I remained solid WoW players until about 4 months ago when we just couldn't find the energy to stick around long enough for the Raid to open or really log into a game struggling to retain it's appeal. Him and I have stuck tightly together and bounced (in the last 10 years) from:

  • FFXI - FFXIV
  • Guild Wars 2
  • Black Desert
  • Diablo III - StarCraft III
  • ~and many single player games; Trying to find a time dump. 


We currently play:

  • SCII Co-op
  • Diablo III (depending on the season offerings) 
  • Destiny 2!

 

On to Destiny:


We received Destiny 2 (like most) free from Blizzard and since then have been addicted to the game. We are both regretful we didn't try Destiny 1 when we had the chance but are definitely Destiny Players for the long haul it seems. We just simply enjoy it. Now we're just coming up with less to do since we've crammed so much Destiny in such a small amount of time! We've gotten our classes to 650, Gotten our Whisper,  Sleeper, Wish Ender, and Ace. I (having more free time) have gotten Malfeasance and have some raid experience with Leviathan and Last Wish. I very much enjoyed the raids and hope to be far more regularly involved in them. I very happily play a Titan and plan to stick with it. All my classes are 650 but only my Titan is min/max'd and effective to my standards.

My hopes as a Clan Member are to be involved in raiding and be a clown in Clan chat and Discord. I tend to step up and help as I seem to have a talent for "Most understandable with the least amount of words". It's just from a decade of leadership as a Guild and Work. I do not usurp, only try to help. 

The number one thing everyone needs to know about me is I. am. sarcastic. and have a dry humor. If you ever feel slanted, tilted,  or just plan pissed at something I say, I apologize in advance. But please know it is not personal or in any way malicious! It's just me. You'll see!

~~Okay, that was freakin' long enough.

Welcome to our forums Batt!

 

Glad to see you posting! I do want to note that we will be looking to have your brother post his own introduction if he is looking to join South of Heaven as well, which I assume he is planning to do. With out membership, we consider each individual during recruitment

 

I have not seen you pop into our Discord server yet so if you have any trouble there, please just let me know and/or ping me on Discord (Grieve#6402) I will note that our clan may be a bit sparse especially this weekend due to the Anthem Beta/Demo, but we will be raiding on Sunday.

 

Anyways, on to some questions to get things started!

  • Did you get a chance to look over our Code of Conduct? Any thoughts/concerns you have there?
  • Favorite single player games in the past couple years?
  • In FFXIV, what was your favorite job class?
  • Any pets? If so, pictures would be awesome! 

Well, I'm sure others will be along to interrogate you ask you more silly questions.

 

I will also be sending you a forum mail welcome package in the next day or two as well.

Hello, Batt! Welcome to the forums!

Not currently RC racing any more? That's a hobby I have always wanted to get into, but from what I've seen it can get plenty expensive. So I've just been living vicariously through various RC youtubers. 

How long did you play Black Desert? My Steam profile shows that I have over 4000 hours in, but of course I'm sure you know a good chunk of that is afk lifeskilling. I stopped playing close to a year ago. Were you in one of the big guilds?

Hello, and welcome! I look forward to raiding with you in the very near future. Now, there are more pressing matters at hand!

 

1) Do you watch any anime?

2) If you answered “Yes” to #1, what would be a classic favorite of yours and a more modern one?

3) What kind of music do you like?

4) What’s your favorite exotic weapon in D2?

~ Yes, But it's been far too long and too overwhelming to keep up nowadays.
~ Classic, Cowboy Bebop and Rurouni Kenshin. Recent, Made in Abyss and Gundam Unicorn
~ Anything except Country and HC Rap
~ Riskrunner. I just cannot put the stupid thing down.

I will definitely do that. Had plenty of RC cars as a kid, but never got any of the really good ones. You ran electric? It doesn't really get into gas powered until you get to 1/5th scale right? I think that's what was I seeing. If I ever decide to get into, I'll have questions for you for sure.

Nope. "gas" starts at 1/10. 
 

Competitively it is 1/8 Buggy and Truggy. (nitro) 1/5 cars are "gas" as in chainsaw mix.

I raced electric, played with nitro. Team wanted me to run it, but I didn't want to due to no pit-crew. Nitro is a handful where Electric is fun. Faster, Stronger. Nothing about nitro is superior except sound.

welcome shawn.

I was in wow in also during those years. Our 25m was top 100 , i ran a pally and then a dk, both as DPS and tanks, was one of the first on our server to have shadowmourne back when it was cool lol. I left wow after pandas. 

You will enjoy it here , semi hardcore but not. We have a core group that doesnt mind pressing new stuff but yet helping others out. Most of us love to raid and do so on all of our guys. Glad to have you and your brother on board. Look forward to seeing you in game.

Hello and welcome!! I think you’ll like it here! 

 

WoW is probably my first love and it hurts me to see it wither away like it has. With what they learned in legion I thought BFA was gonna be amazing. I preordered it and haven’t even re-subbed since the tail end of legion. 

 

Whats your opinion on the state of WoW and BFA? 

 

Whats tour top 5 most memorable moments in WoW?

Yeah, I still have a deep childhood love for Warcraft and always will. Like a old Comic fan, or what-have you. Will always "used to be better", Unfortunate. 

As people state on the daily at this point. Blizzard has finally been fully absorbed by Activision. They are so utterly disconnected from their players that they are TELLING them what they want. It's really pathetic seeing a Dev defend some of the shit that's happened. I can go on forever.

Oh god....
Uhm. 

5. Meeting one of my best friends for many years who was truly a little brother. (not art, lol)

4. Realizing after enjoying ourselves for 3 months, we'd made it to the top of the server, and top 100 in the world (before we even 'thought' we were trying)

3. Being in the Dorm and all of us were in our rooms raiding every tue in the same guild. Was very epic when a boss was downed having three of us in the same building. haha

2. Receiving a World 2nd kill on Deathbringer Saufang in Icecrown Citadel. Apparently it was so close, they awarded 3 others the claim as well. We were shocked as it was just opening day and we thought we were hours behind.

1. Alltime favorite: Back in Ulduar. (My personal alltime favorite raid) We were on Yogg with "no lights in the dark" and were in the final phase, My co-tank and I were tanking the adds that come out in a timed manner, a soft enrage. Usually you are a -for sure- wipe after like 5 of them. A few DPS went down first as healers were overhealing tanks, People start cussing, I BoP'd the Priest (my college roomate) and he dropped immediately after (priest holy threat lol) and then Art (resto druid) dropped late. My Co-tank told me he has 4 seconds to live and threw me a Lay on Hands and fell over. I taunted but lost one more DPS in the threat transfer.  I held onto 7 or 8 of the giant yogg horrors as my Rogue went HAM on the boss. I sent him a lay on hands and was the last to fall. Everyone is screaming now because the boss is at sub 1%. I yell to my rogue to "Get it done, Nick!" as he pops his cooldown and becomes a dodge tank as we watch two health bars go down equally as each hit was like small heart attacks, haha. He finished off the last 1% in what seemed like a literal eternity and they both died at the same moment giving us credit and the achievement. The (ventrillo) Lit up so hard, People screaming, laughing hysterically, and the priest started crying. xD (roommate again) He ran into the room and hugged me, a HUGE 360lb full on fire red, big beard, Irish guy. We celebrated appropriately (some more) and have never forgotten it since. (not a one of us xD)
