Hello everyone, this is my application:
What is your character name (in-game) and what class do you play?
Anirai – I play a Hunter (Beast Mastery spec). I am at lvl 18 right now. My proffessions are herbalism and skinning, but I am planning to switch to either alchemy or leatherworking when I reach lvl 60 (and manage to earn some gold )
What hours do you typically play (cite time zone as well.)
I live in Poland, so my time zone is GMT+2.
On weekdays I usually play late afternoon and evenings, on weekends I am online mostly in the mornings. But I have to admit, that I may not be online every day due to work responsibilities (I work in medical services).
What is your experience with World of Warcraft (how long have you played, were you a raider, role-player, etc?)
Well, my experience with this wonderful game is quite long. I started playing in spring 2006, a couple of months before The Burning Crusade launch. My first character was also a hunter, later I also played a mage (loved it!) and rogue. I never raided in Classic WoW, but was quite active in TBC (raided as hunter) and later, during Wrath of the Lich King (raided as mage). Raiding was never something very essential for me but I was lucky to be in an awesome guild, not very big however, where we really enjoyed to face game challenges together and it was very emotionally rewarding. Sadly, with the end of WotLK also came the end of team spirit, because of implementing the Looking for Group/Raid system. People stopped talking to each other that much, everyone started picking up random groups because it became easy, and at some point during the Pandaria expansion my beloved guild disbanded. Since then I was less active in the game and played mostly solo, and never made strong connections with any other players or guilds. But we all know that this game is most fun when playing with others. That is why I decided to apply for Nighthaven.
Why would you want to join Nighthaven? Please note, we ask for your reasons for wanting to join -this- guild, not just any guild.
My main reason for getting interested in Nighthaven is my impression on how much effort was put here in establishing some very important issues that every decent guild should have. An interesting and intriguing guild advert on WoW official forums, very nice in-game advertisement and also a clear, visually attractive and apparently very active forums site. It is not so common these days, to find a guild where members put so much dedication in those things, I think most guilds just use discord and that’s it. I think that a good forum, a good guild site, is an important place for people to get to know more about each other and communicate. Your investment in this also means that you guys treat the game and the guild seriously, and this is a very important thing for me.
Also, the social aspect stressed here was another factor which got me interested. I am rather a quiet person when it comes to being a member of a large group, and I feel much better in smaller communities. Also, smaller but tight knit and social groups make me feel less anonymous but more useful and needed. I haven't seen most of the game content which required grouping, simply because I don't like to group up with strangers. I always prefer to avoid rude, offensive people, and sadly retail WoW nowadays is full of that. Questing or instancing with guild members guarantees that such situations won't happen or will happen very occasionally. And because it is very clearly stated that Nighthaven's priority is playing socially, I decided to apply for joining.
Which qualities do you have to offer, and - what do you expect of your guild?
I have experience in the classic content and quite good knowledge of my class, so I hope to be able to help others if needed, whether if it comes to just killing an annoying mob on the other side of Azeroth, or going to a dungeon together, or just getting some profession materials. Like I said, I am quite shy so sometimes I would be quiet on the guild chat, but sometimes I wouldn't stop talking, I guess it depends on a day.
I don't have any expectations from the guild , I would simply like to do some dungeons and quests together from time to time and meet some people to chat with during long hours of fishing or picking up herbs. It would be way better than sitting out here alone in the cold...
Where did you hear of us?
I saw Alunaria's post on Guild Recruitment site on WoW Classic forums and it directed me to this site, where I could find out more.
Do you know any current or former member of Nighthaven (if so please cite the person)?
I spoke to Alunaria last night (Oct 2.19), we had a nice chat and she told me more about the guild and what to expect.
Anything else you would like to add to help us know if we´d be a good match for each other?
One of my hobbies is writing (stories, poems, fan fiction), so I have a tendency for long posts....like this one. Sorry about that . But I really wanted to be thorough here, so you guys also know what to expect. I hope to see you all in game!
