Status: REJECTED (Temporarily not recruiting)

Where did you hear about us?

I was looking for a raid guild and saw your post in reddit.

What leads you to our encampment?

The call to glory

No, jokes aside & in your own words, why do you think our guild might be right for you?

I'm looking for a mature and hopefully not too elitist raid guild with more patience that pug groups. I detected humour in your add and I liked that.

Race and Profession
Norn Mesmer
What professions (classes) can you bring to our raids, either right away or given some time (fully geared and experienced at playing them)?

Recently playing a lot with heal druid, revenant and also have temp geared but haven't had a chance to practice on it much.

How old are you, really? Choose what applies best.

30s - I call it "in my Prime"

Where are you from? Where do you live now?

Like how accurately? I come from a small town in Finland that you haven't ever heard of and now live in a slightly larger small town of Jyväskylä, Finland.

What best describes when and how long you play?

I play most weekday evenings and several longer sessions on weekends.

TS is mandatory for our raiding progress. Is that a problem for you?

If it wasn't mandatory I wouldn't take you seriously!

What do you do in GW2? Why do you play the game? What puts a smile on your face that isn't a precursor drop?

I like to do a bit of everything, but mostly I do pve. I love content that requires lots of ppl and cooperation to succeed. I enjoy www squad play, big coordinated meta events and above else raids. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the rush when my team succeeds. I'm a social player who enjoys a good chat while gaming and guild mates are what brings me back even when I'm annoyed at the game.

[IMPORTANT] Tell us a little about yourself that we haven't asked about so far. Anything goes, except short responses and incomplete sentences, we hate those. None has discovered a word limit to this text field yet, if one exists.

I will be totally honest with you and confess that I'm not a super pro player. I have little interest in theory crafting or memorizing all trait lines or what build works best in what group combo, I like to leave that to my raid leader. I'm also a shameless clicker and enjoy occasional therapeutic guardian staff 11111ing in www. On the other hand, I'm patient and willing to put in practice when needed and also to put myself out of my comfort zone when my team needs it. I'm willing to learn new classes and roles if needed and work towards common goal.
I have raided with my main guild since the raids were introduced and currently have about 137 legendary insights, Eternal title and have killed all bosses except Matthias.

Share links to your raiding characters via gw2efficiency.com. You have to create an account, link your gw2 account by generating an API code (see https://gw2efficiency.com/user/api-keys) and then visit Account > Characters > <charname> and generate a link at the bottom left (include equipment/inventory/build). You may opt to do this later, but please have them ready by the time we speak in-game.
Account name with which to contact you in-game?

Be honest - are you exhausted now?

Ha - NO! In fact I will go fill another application right away just to increase my chances!

... I'm also a shameless clicker...


What... WHAT??? *gasps*

There is a special place in hell for skill-clickers... right next to people selling legendaries, charr mesmers and charr guardians. Thankfully for the former two, there is still a chance to repent. Not so for the latter two though.

(Can't help to notice that there has been some Slakvaring going on with commenting applications in my absence...)

Because I engage them in conversation in the Real Make Believe World, you lurker!... and when I don't, my comments come at the same time as yours, but are also long and exhaustive, in order to test a recruit's stamina - point below! :P

Hi, Gadian and thank you for your app.

We appreciate more level headed players that put in the work and foster a good atmosphere and I suspect we'd appreciate you.

We did just accept several other players, though, and before we open the door to more we must see how they fit into our squad.

With the risk of being classist, we'd only make an exception for a chronotank at this moment but from what I could see you do not use yours for raiding (do you, even as just dps?) or at least I couldn't find any Boon duration gear.

With regards to us being not too elitist, I don't think we are - but we still like to run optimised (meta-ish) builds if not meta comps and insist on players hitting 80% of the current qT benchmark - which should be a fairly relaxed number for anyone profficient. Optimization did save us a lot of frustration.

In any case, I can contact you again whenever we reopen recruitment and if you're still interested, we'll get this further.

I'll leave the app open for a little while longer if you wish to comment or reply to anything.

Hey,

ty for comments Satena (I do quite like to have a spot reserved for me in advance, you know ;)) and Lakvar.

I did talk to another officer yesterday and explained that I have been forced by circumstances to play druid for most of the raids I've done since the summer so my crono is sadly lacking in attention. My guild group already had two full commander cronos so I haven't yet put the money in for the gear since legendary armor will be out at some point and it wasn't necessary yet. I have done a few odd raids as a second crono tho but our guild is not really demanding gearwise.

Anyways, pls keep my app in mind and I will work on my gear in the mean time!

Sounds like a plan.
Closing app, will reopen when we reopen :)
