Outlaw Rogue, Progress Team – Withdrawn

What sort of membership are you applying for?

  • Progress Team
  • What characters are you applying with? Please link from armory, wowprogress or some other site, in order of importance to you. Include also your main character if you are applying with an alt.

  • Bronadui, my Rogue. I've rerolled to this class for this expansion, so do note that the logs I'm linking is for my previous main, a Frost DK. I've put the same character in the alt sections because I couldn't seem to submit the application without having something in there.

  • Why did you choose the class/spec you’re applying with and what kinds of content have you played on it so far? What experience you have playing other specs of your class?

  • I'm a one class kind of guy, and up until Legion that class was always the Enhancement Shaman. However with Legion introducing mythic+ dungeons, I've found something in the game that gets my competitive juices flowing, resulting in my rerolling to the DK (a more competitive class than the Shaman) where I managed to peak at #3 on my server. For BFA I've decided to roll a Rogue because I'd like to push even further with M+, as that's where I'll be spending most of my time in WoW outside of raiding. Since I've just rerolled to this class, I don't yet have experience in the other 2 specs, though I plan to learn Assassination as a backup should Outlaw see significant nerfs.
  • Tell us about your history in WoW. Previous realms, guilds, best achievements, favourite mounts and anything else you want to add.

  • I started playing WoW back in the Burning Crusade and was part of a 10-man guild called Hex on Nagrand. As you can imagine, being in such a guild meant that there was not as much for us to do. Still we managed to finish Karazhan and Zul’Aman (the original Amani Warbear from the challenge remains to be my most prized mount), which as you can expect, was quite challenging to complete being a guild that didn’t have access to better gear. With regards to 25-man content, we did manage to finish Gruul’s and Magtheridon’s lair while partnering up with another guild. In Wrath, we had a lot more to do. There I completed Naxxaramas, The Obsidian Sanctum, The Eye of Eternity and Onyxia’s lair. I ended up quitting before Ulduar came along, mostly because raiding was what I was most interested in and after having all the then current content on farm, I found that I had little else to do. From then till Legion, and barring cataclysm, I would only subscribe to WoW for a month to have a look at how the story was developing and never seriously raided. Coming back in Legion on the tail end of the Nighthold, I managed to get curve on that and all raids since, on normal and Heroic, while dabbling in mythic in ToS (6/9) and Antorus (2/9). In order to get better experience in mythic, I actually moved servers from Ragnaros (the guild I was in was raiding Mythic only casually) to Twisting Nether but unfortunately the guild I got into, dissolved shortly after I arrived. I had similarl bad luck in the next guild (Insomniac), where an extended break over the winter resulted in my decision to take a break from the game until BFA rather than go through the process again of finding a new guild. Following my departure, the guild gave a merger a chance before calling it quits shortly after. I'm not a fan of guild hopping, and ideally I want to find a guild I can stay and grow with over the whole expansion. Though I play with my friends, I've missed the social aspect of raiding with a consistent group and hope this expansion I'll have better luck in finding this.
  • Who are you outside WoW? Please make sure to include things like the name your friends call you, your age, where do you live, what do you do when not playing WoW, family situation and anything else you’d like to add here that would affect your ability to play with Weekend Warriors in the coming months.

  • I'm 30 years old and currently living in the U.K. where I'm working as an accountant after just finishing my 2nd university degree. I started playing WoW again after I moved here about two years ago, and it's been a great way to keep in touch with my friends who I'm now living quite far away from. Gaming remains to be my favourite pastime, and WoW is back to taking a big piece of that time slot. Currently, I'm not tied down in anyway, and don't forsee this changing anytime soon.
  • How did you hear about Weekend Warriors? What are you expecting from us? What can you offer to us?

  • My friends (one of whom is Maha who has also applied here and should've mentioned me), were looking for a guild that raided on the weekends and we discovered this guild after doing some research on Wowprogress. All I'm looking for in a guild is seriousness and stability when it comes to raiding. Now I don't mean that there shouldn't be any joking or banter, but that the tomfoolery should be kept to a minimum so that we get quality pulls and the best usage of our time. I'd like to get cutting edge this expansion, it's something that I've felt that I'm capable of achieving, but have had circumstances preventing me from doing so in the past. As for what I can offer? In me you'll find someone who is always open to criticism and is never party to drama. I always come prepared, have near perfect attendance, and moreover, I'm always willing to share the knowledge and help others as well. I'm well aware that the guild comes first and am more than willing to step down from a pull/boss should the strategy call for it without taking it personally. Since I generally only play one class, I tend to learn everything about the spec I'm playing. If I find my performance to be lacking as a result of something I cannot fix, I'd probably reroll to a class where I can (hopefully) excel, rather than bring the team down due to my inability.
  • What kind of computer, internet connection and ingame latency/framerate you have? (please provide links if possible).

  • I have a Clevo P650RP6 gaming laptop (with a 1060 graphics card), on a 6mb fibre connection and have a latency of around 25 with my fps locked to 60 (so that I can benefit from Gsync).
  • The following questions are provided by our members and used by us as a maturity/sense of humour check. Please read them carefully and try to give your answer some thought as your answers will give us the best guide to your 'fit' with our community.

    If you were an orc, what would you be and why?

  • A peon, so that I could go "Me not that kind of Orc!" as a means to get out of conversations.
  • Whats the perfect time of day and why?

  • Me not that kind of Orc!
  • Please name one thing you LIKE most about WoW and one thing you particularly DISLIKE and why.

  • Mythic Plus, it's the reason I agonized over which class to main this expansion and it's also why I gave up on my Enhancement Shaman which I had been playing from BC all the way uptill Legion. I'm a PvE player, and when not raiding I often found that there wasn't much that interested me in the game. M+ has solved that problem for me, I enjoyed pushing rifts over in Diablo 3, and I find enjoy pushing dungeons here. As for what I dislike, possibly the story. I found the storyline peaked during Warcraft 3 and there has been little that engaged me since then.

    Progress team: Hi Bronadui and thanks for the application. What happens now is we put a link to this app in the member's section so members can discuss it and bring any questions they have to you. Normally expect an answer on a raid team application within 72 hours. Please check back from time to time in case there are any questions that need answering as this will help speed the process. Thanks. Chi

    Hi Bronadui, Are you comfortable with the other 2 rogue specs and would you be willing to swap if so required/needed? Regards, Zenna

    Hi Zenna, At the moment Outlaw is simming about 300 DPS less than assassination (which is on top), though the sims still need some work so the figures can change. All 3 specs are fairly close to each other at the moment. I don't forsee any difficulties with swapping to assassination, though I haven't yet given subtlety a go. As for swapping specs, ideally I would like to stick to Outlaw because I prefer the playstyle, but I would be open to swapping should the other specs outperform it considerably. With regards, Bronadui

    Hello again. As we've not heard from you again, can you please confirm if you'll be joining us and when? If I don't hear back from you in the next 24 hours then I'll assume you're no longer coming over and reopen recruitment. Thanks Scabb

    Hi Scabb, Please accept my apologies for the radio silence since my acceptance into the guild. Myself and Maha (we applied together) have been having some internal discussions since then which we wanted to clear up first in order to ensure that we would be the right fit for you guys. I'll have something more definitive to add later today, but just wanted to post this now to let you know that you haven't been forgotten. With regards, Bronadui

    Hi Scabb, I was waiting for Maha to come back on his application before I responded again, largely because the reason I believe I won't be able to join is because of the change in his circumstances and the fact that we intended to join this guild together. To save you some time from reading his response, he's decided to focus on playing a melee dps role and from what we could see, the raiding team is already quite stocked in that department. Taking that in mind, I'm not certain if he'll be offered a spot in the guild with this change, which would mean I too would not be able to join. I've found this turn of events to be disappointing, as I've felt that this could've been the guild that we would go the distance with. If at all you find yourselves in a position that you need 2 melee dps, I'd be most grateful if you would keep us in mind. With regards, Bronadui P.S. If it so happens that that time is now, we would join the guild posthaste.

    That's a real shame. Unfortunately there is simply no way we can currently fit in double melee, we really made room for the hunter as BM so we could have a second rogue more than actually needing a third hunter. Melee spots are unfortunately popular, people that play melee seldom - and they're basically limited to below parity with ranged in most raiding scenarios. This makes it very unusual to have many vacancies come up in melee, indeed all our melee roster bar you and a DK would have been rollovers from Legion. For now we'll go ahead and pass and if things change in the future please feel free to re-apply. All the best and thanks for getting back to us. Scabb
