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

Oh, hello there. I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun. The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!

I am Solaire of Astora, an adherent to the Lord of Sunlight.
Now that I am Undead, I have come to this great land, the birthplace of Lord Gwyn, to seek my very own sun!

The way I see it, our fates appear to be intertwined. In a land brimming with Hollows, could that really be mere chance? So, what do you say? Why not help one another on this lonely journey?

We are amidst strange beings, in a strange land. The flow of time itself is convoluted; with heroes centuries old phasing in and out. The very fabric wavers, and relations shift and obscure. There's no telling how much longer your world and mine will remain in contact. But, use this, to summon one another as spirits, cross the gaps between the worlds, and engage in jolly co-operation!

Of course, we are not the only ones engaged in this. But I am a warrior of the sun! Spot my summon signature easily by its brilliant aura. If you miss it, you must be blind!

Ok time to stop shitposting, deets:

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?

I am very excited to return to Classic/Vanilla WoW to experience the game all over again with the people I raided with on Kronos 2. There are still many things I haven't accomplished in Vanilla and Classic servers are the best opportunity for me to have that chance. I do not mind at all doing the old raids, and I fully plan to level alts, professions, and PvP so I will be very committed and online often.

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)?

Arcane Power / Frost or Winter's Chill Frost for MC/BWL and Fire for AQ/Naxx. Deep Frost for PvP.

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

No

What will you choose as second profession?

I plan to level Tailoring to 300 so I can get my Archmage robes, then dropping it for either Alchemy or Enchanting.

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

Yes

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

Yes

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

Yes - McLoviN/Solaire#2339

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

Mini, Sigu, Ubba, Janes, Durus, Paxus, Vesri, Manika, Barbucha, Furishel, Alyrra, Cehax(im), Destin, Isvya, etc

Favourite Vanilla encounter(not mandatory)

Gluth - Mages actually get to do something other than spam 1/2 buttons

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

Minimally, I'd like to eventually be a competitive player when it comes to performance in a raid environment, which pretty much means that yes, I do care about my own DPS to an extent as far as how I stack up against other players of my class. This was something I never really got a chance to do on Kronos II as I never managed to get a Mind Quickening Gem so I could never really accurately assess my own performance.

So I suppose, at minimum, this means that yes, sometimes, loot does matter to me for important items that remain good even through TBC. It was honestly the combination of that, plus the announcement of WoW Classic from Blizzard that made me quit the guild on Kronos II. I just never saw myself ever being happy with my own raid performance even though I was doing OK in that regard.

So, I am not saying that if I don't get xxx loot or yyy item that I will quit. However, I will say that being dead last in priority for one of THE single most important items in the game for mages felt really, really bad to me after going from one guild that got every mage but me a MQG to another guild that also seemed to have me pegged as dead last for priority on that item.

Overall, aside from that minor thing, my expectations are to raid, PvP, and generally dungeon with the guild. It sucks to do everything as a PUG and I know with Senseless, having to waste time and look for people who aren't awful at the game is a huge motivator for me. It's nice to have friends to do things with, and that's really what I am looking for in Classic WoW.

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

I'm a big try hard. I don't think there is much else to be said about it. I can dedicate tons of time to the game since I am self-employed so I get to pick and choose when I need to take time away. I am 60 on my main and plan to have two alts (a warrior and a shaman) at 60. I intend to level various professions to 300 including Engineering, Alchemy, Enchanting, Mining, Skinning, and Herbalism. Iam working on my level 20 warlock and can do anything extra that the guild needs done.

Also, I live in the USA and it can be really nice to have someone be online during off hours for any late night farm activity.

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

I am getting married this weekend (Sept 14, 2019) but my fiance has been amazing about my gaming habits so no worries there.

Other than that, I cannot think of anything in particular.
