Where did you hear about us?

Reddit

What leads you to our encampment?

The search for camaraderie

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

I like people who don't take themselves too seriously. This is the first application I've filled in a while that doesn't feel like a painfully rigid job interview.

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

In order of raid experience: Engi (Condi), Elementalist (DPS & Heal), Warrior (Power & Condi), Ranger (Power, Condi, Heal) (Still not 100% on druid, need to learn stuff like pushing KC core reliably)

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

mid-20s

Where are you from? Where do you live now?

The Old Continent

What best describes when and how long you play?

I will play weekdays but weekends I am usually away from my computer.

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 still remember the first time we killed Matthias in my previous guild. We had a lot of tries on him but we always seemed to miss something. It was either a lack of cc, no coordination, and eating hadoukens at ungodly moments that put a halt to our efforts. Until finally, one day, everyone seemed to be on their top game and we killed it effortlessly as if it was just another casual kill. It's processes like these that make MMOs so much fun imo. Oh and Fashion Wars is nice too.

[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.

When I was little I thought if I gave our chicken coloured water it would magically produce Easter eggs. It didn't. (Suit yourselves, you only asked for a little :P)

All jokes aside, I have been on a break for around 2 months (just after w4 was released), so I have only killed w4 bosses a handful of times and might not be up to date with the latest tactics. Mechanics shouldn't be a problem though.

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?

Killer Instinct.2058

Be honest - are you exhausted now?

Not sure what to say - skipped to the last question as I usually do with tests. Do I pass?

Did you know that character inventories are like a window into the soul? That said, I'm still having nightmares from checking out Laks...

Seems like a solid application.

Thanks for the quick replies! Wanted to talk to you today but I saw you were busy raiding so didn't want to disturb. Tomorrow afternoon (Sunday 4pm-ish CET) would work best for me, though I should be around lurking for most of the day if you want another time. :)

Sorry, Acid, I missed the reply and the day kinda got away from me - I just now got around to logging in.

There should be somebody online from 6pm tomorrow till 23-4, plus at least one of the guys mentioned in the reddit posts, Netster, can be around during the day.

If you've some time, we'll sort it all out tomorrow!

As the guild will say... "typical Lak".
