Duddha - Social until Cata

Post  Duddha on Sat Oct 23, 2010 10:13 am

Gender, age and location:

Male, 35, U.K.

What do you do when you don't play WoW?:

I dont plan ahead to much, I have a 3 year old daughter who I spend my days with, unless her
grandparents kidnap her for the day.

Do you wish to join as Raider or Social?:

Social Member would suit more right now as im outdated with gear, and not hit a heal button for ages, but would like to be raiding for Cata.

What is the name of the Character you are applying with?

Duddha

Do you have any alt names some of our members might know you better as? If so, please list them here:

Duderino - Rogue (my main from Vanilla days)

Do you know anyone already in the guild?:
I see a few I know from way back, but unsure if they will remember me.
Groin
Cholesterol
Knudsen
Roonie (wheres my beverage Dude!)
Brynhild
Tabuu

What's your history on Draenor? When did you come here, which guilds have you been in, and why did you leave them?:
(If you are X-Realm or new to Draenor we would like to know more about your history before Draenor also)

Began on Draenor the day Blizzard servers went live. Signed Charter for Spirit of Dawnsong, & was an officer there until
Passion was formed. Began in Passion as Raider, went through CL to Officer, then took over as GM where I stayed for some time.
The summer before WotLK release Passion was on the usual summer raid break from Sunwell, progress was at the Twins.
During this time LFM KJ was formed on the quite, many geared players from several guilds were rumoured to be organising a mass
exodus to join. After several years of guild polotics & dramas I had enough. I bought another account, made a toon called Temporary,
invited him to Passion and promoted him to GM and removed Duderino from the guild and quit playing.
I passed the account details for the new 'Temporary' GM account to Passion Officers to sort out as they wish. The rest is history.

Picked up playing with my shammy some months later for the expansion, and went through WotLK content horde side after xFactioning with some friends.
Boredom grew quick with no raids, having raided 5/7 nights for 3 or more years. After some terrible raids I decided to give it a miss,
the GM I was raiding for wouldnt raid if Xfactor was on....

With Cata round the corner, I need to get back into the swing of things. And on reflection, 10 man raiding Kara with Tyranu (choloestorol) & co.
were some of the best days of the game for me.

What is your relationship with PvP?:

Didnt do much PvP to be fair, was very busy PVE'ing and sorting admin guild stuff if online & not in a raid. I dont mind it, its not a prioirty
for me as Ive never really had time but is something Ive had some fun with, though I havent been into an arena.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Character Class:

What's your preferred role in raids, and why?:

Healer - resto Shaman.

Have you ever "changed main", if so, what made you do so?:

Yes, as said above used to play Rogue for years. When I did dip my toe back in to play again, I was aware at the time the game was full of rogues. I was forever trying to recruit healers so made sense to roll one if I wanted to see the game. This was the plan for me back in Passion, to re-roll healer as there was always a lack of reliable raiding healers. Ive also really enjoyed the change, after DPS'ing up close for so long, it was a refreshing change to stand back and heal.

Please provide a link to your Armory profile:

Im a bit out of date, must be like looking back at the 1980's
http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Draenor&cn=Duddha

Are you willing to respec to improve raid perfromance at the cost of your own meternumbers?:

yes

Do you have any logs to show off how good you are?
(if no, you really should try to get one made, worldoflogs.com is easy to use to make one)

I have none with upto date information. It must be close to a year since ive played, Im not going to warm my healing skills up after that long a break on some poor pug. I still have to fight the urge when casting a heal not to run in rogue style and backstab..

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is your English good enough for you to communicate on Vetrilo and in text without any problems or delays?

yes

Do you have any problems with listening to instructions or talking on ventrilo if needed?

no problem

Does your ISP or hardware ever hold you back from performing your best in raids?

nope

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can you Normally attend all of our raid times? (Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays from 20:30->24:00 gametime):

yes

Do you do anything to make sure you play as good as your class can be played?:

When actively raiding I was comparing my own, other guild members performance on wowstats to the worlds top guilds. Following latest gossip & theory on EJ's forums. Word of mouth also, chatting to other players the same class on your realm was always a good insight..well not always but mostly:)

What's your relation to Keybinds?:

For healing im a Clique user, with vitals set to keybind, Heroism, potions and such.

How often do you use potions?:

I see them as essential for maximum perforance, otherwise blizzard wouldnt bother having them in game. simple. Use as often as possible.

Are you willing to reflask even if its just for 1 more pull?

without question

Are you willing to do the needed gold/rep farming to always have the best enchants and gems on your gear?

yup

Which professions do you have?:

Mining & JC'ing

Herb/Alch on my rogue
Enchanting on my lock

Are you fussed about loot?:

Sure, I like loot. Its never been the driving force behind my play, more of a perk for showing up often. If you put the hours in raiding, then the loot comes one way or another.

Tell us about the last time you did a major mistake during a raid:

Been a while since raiding. But last major one I recal was the trash in Sunwell 25 man. Sneaking about on my rouge as the raid was buffing up and pulled agro, think our raid leader Dax got as far as 'ok..buff up'.. the entire courtyard opened up. Also guilty of /w people 'Your the Bomb' in MC, so they would run to the back and blow up..with whoever the bomb was. This was back in easy mode days, when just going for Skuggi's binding to drop. There has been more recent balls-ups, but I forget them right now.

What do you like to do in game when you don't raid?:

Ive lots of achievments to catch up on, and alot of 5 man content i havent seen. Like to juggle the auction house too, its a game on its own.

Used to spend most of my time when not raiding, prepping up to raid, consumeables etc. The 5 man runs and achievements are of interest, and will be getting into shape for them asap.

Why apply to us? And is there anything else you would like to say about yourself?:

I applied here after firstly seeing your add on the wow EU forums. I checked the guild list for members and saw many names I knew form the past. Groin, who sadly left Passion back in the days when 40 man raiding came to an end. Cholestorol, or Tyranu back then I think, who I shared many raid nights with, and was in controversial 'Team 1' with for Kara when it opened. Knudsen, another familiar name with fond ingame memories. All of which left before I was Gm I might add Smile Cant forget Roonie. Spent a fair few hours in IF after raids back in the day both shedding tears over progression;p

Cheers for reading.

Duuuuuuuuuuderrr.

*hands you a White Russian*

Nice to see you bro - will keep it brief as I'm on my iPhone.
Just wanted to warn you that Tabuu is ADDICTED to Xfactor so he's planned all raid times around Louie (who he loves!)

Hope you and yours are all good mate and speak to you later (after some beers) :p

Been a while mate, but still around. Karazan Team 1..it was just after you left that Wisper handed over to me, would or should have been Koga if he hadnt departed.
Nevermind onward and upward though eh. I dont think its a game that can be given up, though a break is essential now & then. Think mine has been long enough now.

Catch you in-game one way or another.

Forgot to add something sorry, its not a big deal but didnt want you to think I was hiding anything.

After my break, before Xfactioning to play with RL mates I did apply to Ivory Heart and got accepted for trial in their ten man team.
Really appreciated the opportunity, but after so long raiding hard I decided to try and keep it casual and play for fun. So declined their kind offer before joining.

thats all Rolling Eyes

think actually we need him, to be able to have the guild average of 40+.. (tbh groin is the one that keeps it that high, without him it would be 30)

Smile
