About you

Name

Conaill Perry

What is your age?

21 to 25

Where are you from?

UK but currently living in Switzerland

Occupation (student and housewife count!)?

PhD student

How long have you been playing WoW?

9 years

What is your average hours played per week?

I'd say about 20ish, but maybe a bit more if I sneak home from work early =P

The raiding section (leave open if applying as social)

What guilds have you been in and why have you left those guilds? (no need for a massive list, you can keep it to the two most recent guilds)

I raided through a small portion of WOTLK (mainly ICC) with a guild called Phoenix Rising on Khadgar many years ago. We were semi-hardcore but back then I was 13/14 so could naturally devote all my time to the wipe fests. I mainly played Death Knight (didn't everyone?) back then and came into the priest soon after that. Since that experience, I've mainly pugged through the most recent expansions as that was all my time allowed for (plus a lot of my friends were doing the same so made the most sense to join them).
The guild broke down at ICC 10hc as we couldn't physically down Putricide and LK as we didn't have the numbers to gear up via 25 man.
I have done a few runs with friends in guilds over the years and joined various forms of voice comms so have some experience in being told what to do (as if my parents weren't enough experience). I'd say my commitment to downing bosses can be vouched for from 60 attempts on heroic Imperator in WoD High maul solely through pugging (some might say carried, but even the scrubs would give up before that point, no?).

Anyone in Surreal who can vouch for you?

I'd say Mikola, Chebet and Yerna would tell you what a waste of space I am, but then again, what are friends for. I've played with Nerini in a couple of dungeons I think ( and I healed your first Nythandra kill on hc after you swapped me out of that God awful Shadow dps thing)

How did you hear about us?

A friend

Now the most boring part! What is your raiding experience (if any)?

As mentioned above, I took part in some WOTLK raiding within a guild. When Cata was released, I took a short break and came back to Pug some firelands and dragon soul. I had a nasty habit of creating and capping alts so I never fully realised the full potential of a spec/class that I played back in those days.
Took another break at the start of MoP then came back to it after my undergrad degree settled down and I stopped drinking like a fresh undergrad. After rocking the SoO LFR scene, I did a small amount of raiding with a friend's guild and we cleared a few bosses on normal and hc though I never properly joined the guild (x-realm, fuck yeah!).
Then came WoD... As mentioned above, did a few thousand attempts on Highmaul, then took a break as my Masters degree (and league of legends) started requiring more focus. Came back through HFC, though focused more on my hunter at that point (though I secured the hc archi kill on my priest. Easier to get a group as a healer =P).
Fully jumped on the legion hype train, and that leads us to now!

What add-ons do you use for raiding?

Grid, DBM, Decursive, Tell me When

Do you have any previous officer/gm experience?

Not at all ( I'm more interested in taking orders and popping cds when told)

General info

Do you have Discord installed? Do you own a mic? Can you talk without horrible feedback? And will you talk if communication is necessary?

Yes to all the above, been involved in a few conversations already

Ping/Latency (you can test this by going to speedtest.net):

Don't know exactly, but Swiss Internet is the dog's bollocks so no problems there

UI screenshot link, preferably while in combat:

I'll link this at a later date if requested, currently at a conference in Germany at the moment. Physics doesn't rest unfortunately

Do you have any logs?

Never bothered with it. If I heal and the boss dies, I'm satisfied.

What's the best wipe you've ever caused?

Never fully understood the safety dance in Naxxramas. Yet for some reason I had the orange nipple on my head for people to follow. You can guess the rest...

What's your favorite raiding encounter?

Highmaul Imperator on HC. Fucking loved that boss. The amount of individual responsibility was awesome.

The End (freaky part)

What fruit would you be and why?

I'd be a melon. Take from that what you will.

Have you read the rules? If not, do you promise to blindly follow authority no matter how ridiculous the demands are?

Yes but how ridiculous are we talking?

On days that we are not raiding, what kind of activities would you like to see happen?

Love me the new mythic keystone idea. But if I'm asked to run LFR I will just alt-F4. Don't have a problem helping gear others up.

Do you have any final questions or comments that you wish us to consider? (other than go f yourself for this insanely long application form)

I understand that the guild is currently reaching it's capacity for healers. All I ask is the chance to prove myself, stand on a few bugs for Nythandra to top myself for the win on the healing meters and to enjoy in the fun that you guys are currently having. I know this isn't a rank 1 guild and the mentality isn't of that type, but I think a few bosses on mythic isn't impossible if Mikola stops hogging all of the legendaries. Without attempting to suck too much dick here, you guys seems like a laugh and I'm ready and willing to wipe with you all.

Hey Blia! Ty for applying :)

Occupation (student and housewife count!)?
PhD student

...then took a break as my Masters degree (and league of legends) started requiring more focus.

Will that interfere with your raiding attendance a lot? Atm I need reliability above all else :)

Fully jumped on the legion hype train, and that leads us to now!

But that hype train will come to a more calm ride sooner or later, will you take a break again?

Do you have any logs?
Never bothered with it. If I heal and the boss dies, I'm satisfied.


Lower, you state that you would stand in bug explosions just to top meters, I am hoping that's a joke, on normal or hc it's not a big deal, but on mythic, it's a big nono!


I'd be a melon. Take from that what you will.
Which type? :p

wicca1987
Had a raid with you, accepted for trial. Just stop meter whoring too much and announcing it xD
Blia
My PhD shouldn't get in the way of raiding on a normal basis. Naturally it can't be helped if I'm sent away for conferences and such, but you'll receive plenty of weeks warning beforehand.

I can't see myself taking time off from WoW anytime soon. As long as we keep progressing through the legion raid scene and the guild stays active, there will be more than enough to occupy my time with you guys.

The bug thing was meant as more of a joke than anything!

Honeydew, only the best will do!


Sorry about the meter whoring, it's a running joke between myself and Derednis! I get excited when big Green numbers explode on the raid...

Hehe nw man! As long as people are healed enough, it's all gucci!
