My name is Chris. I have played WoW in Vanilla and every expansion since (with the exception of MoP.). My wife played from BFA to SL (up to CN raid.) We quit playing together. The environments of the guilds we were in turned toxic, not understanding of real life and many people just started to run together and only together. After trying 3, yes 3 different guilds we decided it was time to take a break.
I have returned for about 3 months now, catching up my characters and updating gear. It has been very difficult and discouraging as the servers my main characters are on, Tichondrius and BleedingHollow, are not very friendly and are filled with people only looking for “meta” classes to PvP and PvE with. Full disclosure over the years I have mainly played Horde, with the exception of BFA where I played almost exclusively on Alliance (Hakkar server) due to the directions of the horde and lore at the time.
I am looking to change things up and so I have been “scouting” Alliance servers (Stormrage, Sargeras and Proudmoore). What pushed me to reach out to your guild is the Guild announcement on the general Proudmoore WoW forums. Phrases like, “feels like home”, “sense of community”, “friendships that last” really stood out to me. I am a husband to the women I love and father to the cutest (IMO) 7 month old daughter. She and my wife trump any game, any time. So when I read, “…guild that knows what its like to be a parent, working adult…” is enticing and gives me hope that paying the transfer fee to bring a character over might be worth it.
I am a little reserved in transferring over all of my Horde characters and convert them over to Alliance. I have however, started to finish leveling my DK who is 45 (as of 04/10/2022) and I would be willing to transfer him.
I am not the best nor the worst WoW player. I have experience tanking, healing and dpsing. If the guild is willing to take a person who is not 60 and has no gear I’d love to transfer my character and become apart of the community. I know how to gear so that will not be an issue. Finding people to play with so I don’t sit IG for an hour(s) trying to get groups will assist greatly in being productive with my limited play time.
My end goal is to scout out and find a great guild, eventually transfer over my Hunter and Druid. My 3 main classes I absolutely love are DK, Hunter and Druid. I also would like to bring my wife back into the game as she enjoyed her hunter very much (collecting pets/pvping). She just has reservations based on her/our past experiences. I appreciate the time you have taken to read this post. I look forward to your response!
(P.S: My current name on the DK will change if I transfer him as I don’t care for it anymore, lol, thus the reason of no armory link nor is his currently name mentioned!)
