'lo there. I’m a returning player who skipped the bigger part of BFA. I’ve been playing since the second week of the expansion, am currently maining an Night Fae ilvl 186 Affliction Warlock and would be interested in finding a bunch of cool people to raid, do world content and maybe even some lower-tier M+. Here’s a quick rundown of my situation before getting into some (hopefully not too contrived) specifics.
- Raided in Legion as DH in Normal/Heroic
- Looking for a guild of any size as long as it has fair leadership, friendly people, one or more active raiding teams, and raids 2 days at most (towards the evening GMT/GMT+2)
- Not interested in Mythic Raiding but open to lower-level M+
- I treat WoW as a game - will do my best to prepare (guides, consumes), but work/IRL may step in
- Not a top-tier player but I do what I can to pull my weight, listen to feedback
- My time as a Warlock hasn’t been too great numbers-wise and I’d like to see if I can handle raiding as Affli - to this extent, I’m half-considering rerolling to something like Unholy DK/Monk/different class
I’m 27, from Europe and use Discord but can hop onto other software if needed. I have a mic into which I occasionally speak, but am also rather introverted and with a random/silly sense of humor that doesn’t always succeed with fellow humans (my cat thinks I’m pretty hilarious, though) but I do know when to stop.
I’ve raided quite a bit of Normal/HC in Legion and the start of BFA, albeit as a Demon Hunter. I’ve also raided in Classic, so I do have the base ideas down, even if that doesn’t make me immune to standing in fire/sparkly death pools of death.
My approach to WoW has always involved treating it as a game, especially since nowadays I’ve less time to spare. I do my best to complete the content that needs completing and come as prepared as possible. I read tactics and am very much open to advice for improving how I play (class woes follow below) but might end up having the occasional set of trouble doing so, depending on how IRL stuff impacts my time.
I’d like to think I’m a decent player, not topping meters, with enough to learn, but ultimately pulling my weight. If that proves to not be the case, I’m also familiar with the notion of being benched/excluded from the raid and will take it graciously, provided it’s fair and justified.
I’ve always enjoyed the class fantasy of Warlock (especially Demonology) but picked Affliction since I was curious about its DoT-flinging playstyle. Over the course of leveling, I found it to be rather underwhelming, at least numbers-wise. I switched to Destro for a while (crafted my first legendary for it) before hopping back to Affliction.
I haven’t had the best time in Mythic+ as a Warlock and I’m not entirely sure if it’s my failing to keep up with a 9-button rotation/dodging mechanics/not pulling stuff (entirely possible) or if the numbers just aren’t in a great place tuning-wise. Needless to say, I’ve seen plenty of Hunters and DKs go brr several times as I’m slowly placing down DoTs on each mob, only to pop half of a Malefic Rupture before they die. I’m also still getting used to transitioning from a super-mobile melee class to a slow(er) caster and haven’t unlocked many of the Death Gate/Demonic Circle tricks.
I realize this isn’t a great way to advertise myself, given the cost of legendaries and potentially being thrown way behind everyone else if I do end up rerolling, but wanted to be up front about where I’m at. Raiding has always been the thing I’ve enjoyed the most about WoW and would like to see at least some of Castle Nathria.
If you’d think I’d have a spot somewhere in your guild’s raiding team, I’d be more than happy to talk. Feel free to leave a reply and thanks for going through my lengthy post.
