-Originally created for crits in catacombs.
I'd have random people box him in. That's where all of his exp from level 1 to 65 came from.
-This toon is geared mostly from rots, but was also played in <Weekend Warriors> for a while as a main until
diablo 3 came out and the guild died.
Quests done (MainQuest Augment, Faction Augment, Combine Armor, Giant/Dragon Augment, Vah, PoLore etc):
Sponsors (if you know anyone in <Seven Virtues> already, tell us!):
I don't know if anyone would 'sponsor' me but I know quite a few of your members. I'm sure I need no
1. When do you play and where are you from? How many raids do you presume to be able to attend a week?
I log in to the game to track and kill what I see. Then I have nothing to do and log back off of the game.
I could play literally 24/7 if I wanted but I have nothing useful to do right now.
I was helping lead raids in <Altruistic Valorions> but the recent inundation of bugs have demotivated
the core of our members and raids seem to have ceased at some point during my absence.
2. Experience - What raid experience do you have on SoD, if any? If you played live and raided, you can give us info on that too. Tell us what classes this experience is with.
I've done almost all of the content on SoD on every class. I'm probably the least familiar with the mechanics of bst(post revamp)/necro/mage at higher tiers.
Here's what I haven't done:
-OG content other than KK/curator.
-a few of the final fights in Plane of Entropy.
-A few obscure fights in Plane of earth.
-Most of City of Mercy (mostly because all of my characters except for Oumaj are pleged to that zone.)
3. Guild History – What guilds have you been in?
Too many to remember. I started playing the game October 1, 2006. Here's a brief list of some of the
one's I can remember off of the top of my head.
<House of Incandeza>(leveling/adept guild) <Phoenix Rising> <Bane>(twice; yuck)
<Blight of Karma> (a t1 raiding guild; I was one of the better geared people because I farmed plat for deepmetal/shadowsilk on my characters lol)
<Fusion> (I wasn't in this guild for very long because the raiding environment was toxic.)
<Mjolnir> (This is where I made my monk and fell in love with it.)
<Novus Ornidatum> (good people/casual family guild.)
<Ethereal> (I lead raids there and got them to t10 before I started losing raid spots to people's alts.)
<Exodus> (More on this below.)
<Chaotic Winds> (The guild had a few great people but horrible leadership.)
<Weekend Warriors/Big Budget Sundog Riders> (Lead by Oozu/me originally, then me/Chronodar until diablo3 killed the guild.)
<Resurgum> (I was in this guild multiple times for short periods as a friend-tag. I don't like their loot system and only tagged there to talk to a few friends.)
<Quality Preowned Bots> (I was one of the guild leaders.)
<Prophecy> (I joined to help Xerokine(eldarian) when he was leading it for a while; I quit when their officers came back and wanted to take control over everything.)
<Ringer's Only> (I was in the guild for a couple of weeks; I left before 2.5 came out, I think.)
<Group Three> (My friend lead this guild and I helped lead raids/ringer sometimes.)
4. Other - stuff about your self that you might want to add, or why you want to join <Seven Virtues>, etc...
The only thing I want to add is about my departure from <Exodus> back in the day. I think this will
be the only point of contention with regard to my acceptance, or declination.
I know there's still bad blood between some people and myself but I believe that it's misguided.
I'd like to elucidate to you why it was that I joined <Exodus> in the first place.
I was in Novus Ornidatum at the time, and my friend had Oozu told me that they were looking for people.
Novus had started to die because Thaz was removed and people were extremely butt-hurt.
I wanted something to do. I asked Thanman, to whom Oozu refered me.
(You probably know him as Alpharious or many other toons.)
He told me that I wouldn't be able to get my monk into raids because, at the time, Fedodo/Thanman/Aecav
were all very active.
He told me that I could, however, play my cleric as a 'main' on raids and bid on my monk as an 'alt'
(at a rate of 2x dkp cost) and that I'd mostly take rots.
I wasn't elated about this, but I had no better options and so I agreed and applied.
When I got into the guild, I rarely got Oumaj into raids, and when I did people were never happy about it.
(I didn't expect to get him in if there wasn't room, and I didn't expect to be the first to get anything; that's fine.)
Even so, doing things like the CoD2 event for him caused more drama than it should have. Half of the guild
waited in Spires once the mains had their quests completed. Only a boxed crew of about 9-10 people stayed
to help get everyone's alts finished while the rest of the raid pouted about having to wait.
Also, to be frank, I played other people's characters, like Zummba, Oozu, Glim, Minlas, Trompor..etc. as much,
if not more, than Oumaj to help raids happen and to prevent rots. I genuinely tried my best to help out and
to be the good guy --and I think I was.
Look, what it comes down to is this: I was forced to play a toon I didn't enjoy; but, despite that fact I had
the highest attendance in the guild other than Aecav from the time I joined, up until the time that I left.
Eventually, college started up and I couldn't make raids in the mornings. I thought about staying tagged but
taking a break from SoD until the semester ended. We'd probably all be on better terms if I had, sure.
Around this time, though, there was some drama over Melek Taus in Emberflow. I had passed the last 3
tomes he dropped on Acirau to various people in the guild because I didn't care enough about my cleric
to take them from someone who did. When I got my monk in and won a roll, I was excommunicated from
6man events henceforth (at least all of the ones that Anti formed/Draeos and a few others formed).
I needed nothing from raids anymore and I couldn't get the few pieces of loot that I was missing from
6 man encounters --such as Crystalis (Pre-nerf), Gloomshroud, Rohk augs..etc.
Next, a new rule was added that stated that one couldn't bid more than 50 dkp on one's alt unless one's
main had an eternal charm or better. Which was laughable because my 'alt' had a supreme charm and
was the toon that I wanted to gear in the first place. This rule seemed to have been made in spite of me,
considering that it was promulgated immediately after I outbid a beastlord on some Gongoerth items.
I thought about my options for a long time. I tried to keep myself interested by amassing DKP and collecting
niche items like Id, Barbed Choker of Pride for my cleric. Unfortunately, with the 6man drama, the new
rule, and Memu raging and changing his information frequently around that time, I wasn't able to stay
Ultimately, I left the guild and joined <Chaotic Winds>. I was allowed to main my monk there.
I was able to form my own 6man groups and gear not only the toon I enjoyed playing, but toons of my friends.
Sure that guild had a few assholes in it, but it had a few good people. More importantly, I was playing a class
that I didn't hate. That actually makes the game fun, even if you are surrounded by a group of people that
you don't like, who also don't like you.
That all having been said, if I do get into the guild. I'd like to be on a class that I enjoy. I don't care about
getting any 'alts' into raids. If something is rotting, sure, whatever. I just want to autoattack things on the
monk and have some fun. I'm over what happened in the past, and I hope that some of you will be too.
