I’m officially putting myself on the market. There’s been some developments over the past week that have made the decision to leave the Effers the only real choice for me. It’s a decision tinged with sadness, but I admit to also being a little excited about the whole world of opportunity that is in front of me.
What I’m looking for
I’m looking for a guild where I hopefully already know a few people, which is why I am starting my search here. I’d like for there to be some social aspect to it – not in a “we have organized social events” sort of way, but in a “there’s usually a handful of people around who would likely run heroics with you” sort of way.
Since I am a huge PVP wuss, I’d like a PVE server.
The opportunity to do some light raiding would be nice. I’m not looking to be on any A-teams, but if you have an alt night or are pretty relaxed raiders in general and my skill and gear levels would meet either of those criteria, I’d like to have a shot at something like that.
Otherwise, I guess I want a group of people who are mature and who don’t dick around when it comes to group activities. If your raid starts on time and people are focused while they’re in there, that’s exactly the raiding environment I prefer. If people are allowed to crack jokes without having someone curse at them for it, so much the better.
My availability will be for one night a week and any night from Sunday – Thursday is open. About the earliest I can be available on a weeknight is 7-7:30pm MST. The latest I can stay up without work suffering too much the next day would be 11-11:30pm MST. Sunday is wide open, though a similar end time would be required.
What you would be getting
I want it to be very clear up-front that you would be getting my primary character in my secondary game. My SWTOR guild comes first and it looks as though our big nights will be Friday and Saturday. If this is a problem, then you probably don’t want me.
So that’s one mage. I’m willing to server and/or faction transfer exactly one character. I’ve played a mage for five years, so I am comfortable in saying I understand the class and am familiar with my utility. I’m most comfortable in arcane, but would be willing to put some effort into either frost or fire if it were asked of me.
I’ve never been a theorycrafter or really into reading a lot of theorycrafting stuff. That said, if my performance isn’t up to par, I’ll happily go to work on improving as best as I can in the limited time I’ll have to do it. I’ll even try to grind some VP since I’m about a tier behind gear-wise.
My professions are currently tailoring and alchemy (elixir spec). Since I would be losing my herbalist alt in a transfer, I will more than likely be changing something on the professions front anyway. So if there was a gap I could fill, I’d be willing to at least entertain the notion of starting all over with completely new professions.
I’m also willing to do some fishing and cooking. Fishing is a nice at-work activity.
Firstly, I’m not in an enormous rush to make a change. I’d like the opportunity to roll a baby alt and spend some time checking out a guild before committing money to a transfer.
I’m not looking for special treatment. If your guild requires an app, I’m happy to fill one out. Or whatever. However, I do have a stipulation for joining any guild, the details of which I am not going to discuss on my blog, but would be more than happy to share in a more closed setting. It’s not something most guilds should have to even worry about, I don’t think.
Along with the non-diva promise, I won’t cry about loot or sitting out raids. I know I wouldn’t be a highly contributing member and I don’t want to be a liability.
And that’s me. I’m open for any questions or comments. You can leave ‘em on this post or email me at alas (at) kissmyalas (dot) com.
