Social Application - Monk (DPS) - Grekshar
« on: June 20, 2020, 02:03:16 pm »
Hello, Iron Edge!

I am applying to be a social member.

Character: Grekshar
Armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/Kazzak/Grekshar
Class/Spec: Monk (DPS)
Member Type: Social

Personal Info:

Andy, 36, UK. I work as a Data Engineer for a Building Society.
When I'm not playing WoW I'm coaching football. I'm a level 2 FA qualified football coach and coach an under 13's boys football team. Also play a bit of football (or did, prior to the events of Coronavirus) in a six a side league.

bnet: Wilson#22721
armoury: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/kazzak/grekshar

Class/Spec:

Monk is awesome, the amount of spells and the slap dash rotation for damage dealing is like fluid abstract art. The reliance on Versatility and the correct azerite gear is in some way a bit of a blocker to achieving the high dps figures but the leg sweep, paralysis cc and general kick, punch, fly through the air is so fun to play. In PVP its like a child that won't stop saying "Are we there yet".

Alts:

120 Disc Priest 463 ilvl - Kraggosh-Kazzak
120 Holy Paladin 457 ilvl - Zantasia-Kazzak
100 Warrior Shockbabe-Stormscale don't judge, I was younger then! :) (Will transfer and level to 120 when I have a guild on Kazzak)
100 Druid Merlotte-Magtheridon (Will transfer and level to 120 when I have a guild on Kazzak)

Professions:

I have the chef title from my Mage. After I came back to WoW into 8.3, I ended up getting the final Delicious Chocolate Cake recipe from the Shattrath Daily Quest. The choice of 'Barrel of Fish or Crate of Meat' You have no idea how long I spent deciding which one to pick. thankfully I chose right!

I do have the Magic Rooster and Blazing Hippogrph TCG mounts

Raiding/PVP Experience:

Progressive Raiding
Wotlk - Warrior Tank in Naxx, Ulduar, OS and ICC

Casual Raiding
Wotlk - Disc Priest (ICC)
Wotlk PVP - Frost Mage (mainly Wintergrasp)

Progressive Raiding
Wotlk - Resto/Balance/Guardian in ToTC, ICC

Cataclysm Causal Raiding through all content

MoP
The release of MoP was when I found my calling. I decided to Dual box 2 monks to try and get realm first. What I didn't take into consideration was the time it would take to get out of the Panda starting zone. Nevertheless I kept going. MoP was released on the 25th September, I was a level 90 WW Monk on the 30th September, a day behind the realm first Monk.
As I was running dungeon after dungeon, I was soon asked to join the hardcore raiding guild on Blade's Edge (there were actually a few back then). I was quickly thrown into raiding 4 nights a week and we finally got Will of The Emperor down on the 5th November and got my first AotC achievement, and the only one I am really proud of. Shortly after that success of the Will of The Emperor kill, me and my then wife were on rocky ground (she was also a WoW player) and eventually divorced (7 years ago now).
Before we finally divorced, I had got 1900 rating in RBGs on my Monk on Stormscale and very close to 1750 rating in arena.

From that point onwards, the raiding history is nothing worth talking about. I got a Curve achievement from Archmonde and the Grove Warden mount, but that was only because I was in a friends guild who had the Hellfire Citadel HC raid on farm and was basically boosted through.

No raiding experience in Legion as I was progressing through my career at work.

Joined WoW again after a long break and transferred my Disc Priest from Stormscale to a new players realm (Doomhammer) to see how I got on. Loved it, but wasn't a fan of the alliance community and the lack of PvP within guilds that I was used to on stormscale. As I had already been on Stormscale I decided that I needed a new venture going into Shadowlands and what remains of BfA.

Over my 3 level 120 characters, I am 12/12HC as healer and 12/12 normal on my Monk as WW.

Previous Guilds:

Most recent:
Kindred Spirits-Doomhammer (8.3 raided through Ny'alotha on Disc Priest and Holy Paladin)

I was in an alliance hardcore raiding guild on Blade's edge during the early parts of MoP where I played a MW and WW monk. Mentioned in previous section.

A Cunning Plan-Blade's Edge alliance in Wotlk (Hardcore raiding through Naxx, OS) - Disbanded due to drama

Why Iron Edge?

Love the balance of raiding, keeping progressive and also the social aspect (especially the meet up to Vienna). As a football coach for a development club, I try and be as inclusive as possible, giving players a chance to shine. Iron Edge appears to offer the same.

What can I offer Iron Edge?

Commitment, team player, willingness to learn and progress.
I have played the game on and off for the last 12 years and would like to think I have good knowledge of most aspects of the game. With this in mind, I can offer support, where to look if you have any questions and happy to help.

Where did I hear about Iron Edge?

wowprogress and also in the guild finder.

Last Words?

I am applying as social as it is a new realm, new people and I don't plan on just joining a random guild. I will remain guildless until someone gets back to me with a decision.

If you have any questions regarding my application, please just message me via bnet
