Please introduce yourself. We would like to know more about your background and experience in WoW, especially vanilla WoW (private servers included)

Hello, my name is Jamie. I started playing WoW in vanilla but was only 15 years old at the time, I had no access to my own PC so I could only play on my cousins - while he was sleeping - this made it very difficult for me to get any actual raid experience in vanilla, all I got to do was some ZG runs and obviously a lot of 5 man content. By the time TBC came out, I had my own place and my own PC. I raided pretty hardcore back then, we cleared everything as server first upto Mu'ru - and we got server second on him and only killed KJ post nerf unfortunately. By the time WOTLK came around, my thirst for server firsts was even higher. I transfered realm to be in a more competitive guild that was top 100 EU. I raided here through out WOTLK and really enjoyed all the content. Cata was much of the same though my willpower was starting to fade toward the end of it. I quit playing in the early stages of MoP. I didn't return to WoW until the last patch of Legion, where I really enjoyed the content that was available, sadly bfa came out shortly after. I was still enjoying playing and joing a mythic raiding guild on my server where we cleared 7/8M in first raid, similar in the second one though I really started to despise the content in BFA at this point and quit playing. Got excited for classic wow when it was released and would love to explore the content that I wasn't able to as a kid.

How much time will you be able to invest/play and raiding. In a vanilla guild this often means long commitment while waiting for all the content to be released and cleared. How do you feel about having to do same old raids over and over again?

As explained above, I didn't get to experience the content so I will be thirsty to do it over and over again, discovering ways to improve my performance each time.

IRL I run my own business, with employee's who run it everyday - this affords me the luxury of choosing when I have my own free time.This will be organised around raiding/my experience of Classic.

I don't have all the addons installed that I will be using for raiding as I didn't want UI errors while leveling and getting DC'ed from server. I don't even have damage metres while leveling. I will link current UI so you can see my keybindings but it is not the UI I will be using while raiding.

Please link a screenshot of your raiding UI with the applied class (you can use https://imgur.com/). Make sure that your keybinds and addons are set up, as we are very interested in inspecting them.
Which specc will you be using with lvl 60 (Use http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent)?

I'll be Frost spec upto AQ - fire thereafter <3

Do you have a problem with any of the requirements written above(summoner, one fixed profession etc.)?

No issues.

What will you choose as second profession?

Would like to choose herbalism for farming as a mage, currently have tailoring (250)/skinning (280) though I am planning on dropping tailoring after creating my BiS chest. Can keep it if needed, not 100%. Depends how much extra I can gain from herbalism.

Would you be willing to adjust your specc for the benefit of the raid?

Of course.

There will be specific raidaddons that every raider will have to install, are you ok with that?

Obviously.

We require all our Raiders to use Discord during raids and for out-of-game chat/announcements/world boss alerts. We expect everyone to have it configured. Are you fine with that? here is the link to our guilds Discord https://discord.gg/nFXpxcR and pls post post your discord tag so we can contact you if needed

Already on the discord server. Jamie on discord.

Is there someone currently in the guild that could or would vouch for you?

I know all of the Scottish guys that are in guild, Leviathan is my employee at my business - played a lot with him.

Favourite Vanilla encounter(not mandatory)

Looking forward to finding out.

What are your goals and expectations from the guild or the game?

I would like to play with my IRL friends, enjoy the community that classic offers. I love challenging content in games and have been a fan of WoW for a long time, so i'm looking forward to the challenge of AQ40 and Naxx as from what I hear, the content before them is not that challenging.

Why do you think you would be a bigger asset to the guild over someone else?

I honestly don't consider myself to be a bigger asset than someone else, just a guy who is very competitive by nature, loves the game and has friends around.

Anything you would like us to know, for example a day you can not play at all weekly(not mandatory)?

Can add IRL punishments to Leviathan at work if he misbehaves in raid.

well written application, when it comes to the lack of expirience there is an easy fix for that which is called motivation :) aslong as you are motivated to learn from more expirienced players you will be fine.

the only negative thing i have to say is the major lack of keybinds. pls fix that and pm me a new ui screenshot at a later point.

other than that accepted as trial.
