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

Vanilla retail:
Semi-hardcore guild, "Overrated" - The Maelstrom (EU)
First 6-7 bosses Naxx as far as I remember, up to C'thun AQ.
TBC - same guild, turned hardcore - with competetive clears on Vashj and Kael'Thas, all content except Sunwell (I quit before that).

Pserver:
Feenix, around 2013-14 (I think?)
Hardcore guild - Played in "Honorable" (can't remember exactly, but i think top 3-4, below Dreamstate ofc.) as warlock. Up to the start of AQ, where studies got a lot more busy.

Nostalrius - "Gnarly" (hardcore/semi-hardcore guild), as rogue.
Didnt't really make the core team here, as I was late in, and being a rogue it was tough with spots. But raided oh i think at least 50-60+ raids with them.
Learned the kind of min/max - p-server - realmplayers-way of playing here.
Also did some semi-coop kind of pugs and world-boss coalition with Dreamstate.
Up to AQ, where again studies got busy.

Light's Hope / Elysium (or whatever that stuff was called), with guild "Nidvardir" (semi-hardcore ish), also as rogue.
Again up to AQ, where I just couldnt farm enough, as studies still was busy.

All in all i've probably done 150+ resets of different shit in a min/maxing - hardcore way, but as you see a recurring story with not having enough time to venture into AQ/Naxx, which was the goal every time.

Story is different now tho, as I know have a lot of time/freedom as a 8-15 working man. And this time I come prepared, with mats stocked up the wazoo.

Which previous Classic guilds have you been a part of?

Played in URO since release, where I served as Officer/CL with different PVE-oriented tasks, with a handful of IRL friends of mine. Originally I wanted to play in an international / more hardcore-oriented guild, as that is what I enjoy the most, but joined with my friends in this all-norwegian guild when that appeared.
Stepped down and left the guild recently, as there was too much distance between me and some others about direction forward, me being in the minority.
But nothing bad to say about these guys, had great fun with URO, and left on good terms.

Why are you applying to Senseless?

My motivation is to play with a hardcore guild, doing all preps/wbuffs, and running things as smoothly as possible, but not quite on the Progress level, where expectations are almost impossibly high. For me its important that there is also a good atmosphere, with normal laidback, grown-up dudes who also has lives outside, but where in raid there is full focus.
And that is exactly my impression of you guys, from the interactions i've had with you so far (from the attempts at wboss coalition etc.). Seem like a good bunch of chaps, who also dish out some pretty mean times and logs, and like im reading over here in the rules.. nothing but discipline in raids.

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 noted, I probably have 150+ clears of this stuff from pservers, so I dont have a problem with repitition. Life situation rather than boredom prevented me from progressing into Naxx earlier, but really psyched to do it this time.
Basically, it varies a bit, but usually I can play for say 4 hours most nights, with off nights where I do other stuff. Prefer to have fri/sat off, but also dish in quite a few hours during the weekend. Can't log into wboss during the day, but if it pops during the evening and i'm on ill drop everything im doing and join in.

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.

https://imgur.com/a/PzoMyc6 - hard to see everything here, but basic gist of it

Which specc will you be using with lvl 60 (Use https://classicdb.ch/?talent)?
Pls show us your current Gear using the following link: https://classic.wowhead.com/gear-planner
Do you have a problem with any of the requirements written above(summoner, one fixed profession etc.)?

Nop. Got one summoner now, and 3 more on the way up around 15ish. Did gnomish first for the trinkets, then to Goblin for sapper crafting. Thought maybe i'd go Gnomish when AQ hits for the Gadgetzan trinket, but Ill do w/e is required.

What will you choose as second profession?

Herbalism.

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

Sure

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

Of course

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

Boshank#8953

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

I don't think so, don't really know anyone personally. Just talked with Leviathan on disc.

Favourite Vanilla encounter(not mandatory)

AQ-Naxx.

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

Goal is to be competitive on the world scene, kniving among the big bois like DS and Progress, even if you can't make it quite there, at least give them a run for their money.
Top 10 world is a fun goal (which you already proved you can do).
But besides that just dishing out some highly efficient raids with sick logs, where everyone is fully prepared.

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

Well, you have a lot of strong players I think, but I at least think I could compete on par with some of you guys ;)
I have a strong understanding of my class, having played it over a number of years, and I always aim to improve what I can. I always get every wbuff, and bring the necessary consums, save for a flask at this stage. For a speedrun ill flask tho, unless its 10x times in ph3 :p.
I think i've dished out some nice logs so far, with room for improvement of course. If interested, you can see here: https://classic.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/firemaw/boshank#

Also, my bank is stacked with mats for AQ/Naxx. Not done yet, but soon.

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

Have 2x alts im leveling now. Aiming to get the up asap to have some variation while waiting for AQ.
Warr lvl58
Shammy 56

And please don't mock my shit cloak. Have 40+ runs in Strat:UD for baron's, just gave up a little up at some point. Still doing runs for it tho.
