Mount Hyjal 4/5 i wasnt there when they down archi unfortunately and 8/9 BT and again was unfortunately not there to witness Illi go down. However i dont have any pre-tbc raiding experience.

General questions

Previous guilds and reasons for leaving?
I have been in a few guilds, but i am not a guild hopper, Each one i have been in for a few months and done my part in raids etc.
Firstly i was in The Knights Of the Templar, I joined them on my very first char which is still Borrismorris at level 40 Very Happy. I found this a good guild with nice people in it. The reason i left was because i wanted more out of the game and i wanted to make raiding and other end game experiences with people who shared the same views. Another reason for leaving tkott was that the Guild Master wasnt really fair to me and because i wanted to tank as a paladin, which he thought along with rogues not being able to do dps and melee being absolutely lame against a boss, was absurd. So i left Tkott and im not to sure but i was in some guild just for kara for a few weeks, got my tanking gear up a lil with friends and didnt really do much in the guild. Then i met jeff in a heroic one, He used to be called Buddhi and is now Holgerson the leader of Cake.

Cake was a very good guild with good people who knew what they were doing. But that didnt stop the thug in London, where i went to a friends Birthday party thing :s, from smahing a glass up against a wall and stabbing me in the right shoulder. I had to have about 3-4 weeks off of wow and at the time Cake was still farming Mount hyjal. Now 3-4 weeks may not sound long to some but when i was the only pally tank who attended 90% of all raids for so long u kinda come accustomed to having the pally tank there. So while i was away they geared a pally to become thier new pally tank which meant that i no longer had a raid spot. I left of my own accord due to not getting in raids and thought i would take some time off before the expansion. When the expansion came out i Joined a guild called KAF.

I am still currently in KAF but i would like to have more raids because atm people are very lax with coming online at the correct times. I want a more stable set-up with people willing to come to raids on time all the time.

What role do you feel you provide in a raid and what areas of strengths do you feel your class and spec has over others?

I provide the raid with a very capable tank that can handle pretty much any situation. I have main tanked every boss in the content so far and have the gear to show for it. My areas of strengths are that i can assess a situation very quickly and change the tactic to the situation v.well. Also i know my class thoroughly. Once I became a tank i looked up everything that i could about tanking as a paladin and what stats i should go for, fair enough it is different now but i still remember the old way of tanking ^^. my Class can support a raid by having such wonderful buffs Very Happy. I am specced in Kings for things like 10 man and heroics and if the raid does not have a retadin in it i can re-spec to allow the raid to have +3% more crit all round. I am also specced in improve devotion aura which now it has been buffed gives me and additional 50% armour from its buff and anyone who is affected by it(which can be raid wide if ur on a boss like thadius) gives 6% more healing recieved. Also the thing about paladin tanks and pretty much all tank we do a fair bit of dps, i can easily do 1400+ in a raid going all the way up to 2k dps. Which i think is brillaint cos on fights where u need every bit of dps u can muster its great to be able to help with that.

I am also very very easy going, i mean if someone says "ok guys this is gonna be a night of wiping" ill simply just say in chat "Very Happy". I am also very calm and very patient. I dont see any reason to get annoyed and *!&@#(! about something v.v unlucky. I also think that im a nice guy Very Happy ill help most people with things but it stops when it comes to boosting -.-. i swear i must have more whispers in SW asking me for a boost travelling from the AH to the mailbox than i do in one day.

What 1 thing would you change about your class if you could?
Tbh i Really really dont know what i would change about a paladin class now. The thing is before the ROFL patch in TBC i would have said - More raid utility in the ways of DPS. But now pally dps has been brought up eye to eye with some of the other classes that do dps. Also healing i have heard has become a lot more fun to do. I say i have heard because i will always admit that i am a lame, yes lame healer. i tried healing back in the day (about a year ago) and come to the conclusion that i was lame and become a tank, which ive stuck at since. Maybe the only thing that i could comment on is how the paladins tanking mechanics. Now this isnt what i would change but just what i would like to comment on. I think blizz deserve a clap from paladin tanks all over Very Happy. No more spell damage weapons, no more spell damage on gear. I think that the spell damage-stamina conversion is just right.

What do you think you can add to Eternals?
DRAMA! Very Happy

He he just joking. The thing that i could bring to Eternals is very consistent raiding attendance as i am a scaffolder and start early and finish early Very Happy. Also i think that i have a good knowledge base of the game and most of its mechanics. I can also give laughs, i am a great guy to take the piss out of and trust me there a lot of ground you can cover Very Happy!. I can also make Flasks on my alt and also give help to anyone that asks Smile

What do you think Eternals can do for you?
I think that eternals has been the best guild on the server for quite some time now and the fact that the expansion put EVERY guild on a level playing field eternals came out on top of Lost who joined with better progression than other guilds to start with. I know 1 player in Eternals and he seems to be very happy with them. Eternals seems to provide every in a raid - a good laugh but serious at the same time (everyone wants loots at the end of the day Very Happy!) Eternals also offer stable and selective recruiting not just taking people just because u need that particular class. I think that this makes a lot more efficient raid in my opinion.

Personal infomation; Name, age, where you live, interests/hobbies, Job and family that will nag you to stop raiding?

My name is Joe Morris im 18 and from Kent in England. I am a scaffolder who works in London day in day out. My family dont care what i do with my spare time as it is my spare time my comp etc. My interests are drinking in punbs/clubs with me m8s Very Happy and my hobbies are fitness (fraining for the army which im joining in 1-2years).

and tonight mathew im gonna be!..... Very Happy

Additional information which you would like to name? I do like red-bull which is great for raiding

Youve wispered me a couple of times in the last few days asking if theres places available and each time ive said no. So I dont understand why you've applied. Theres just no way we can fit in any more tanks at the moment. So I have to decline. (Your talents, enchants and meta and some gear choices are wrong, btw :p)
