Hi Claudio,


I love your application, and your answers!


Hmmm....can I think of anything to ask you????


OK....if the guild has arranged a board game night, a raid, mythic plus runs and a transmog run in an old dungeon, and you only had time to do one....which one would you choose to do and why?


In your previous raiding experience, what is the best way to deal with a "wipe night"?


Our guild tries to allow raiding for all palyers no matter their skill level. It means we are slower in progressing, but we keep the community feels as everyone gets to take part and experience raids. If you noticed one particular raider was really holding the guild progression back, causing numerous wipes and generally being under-prepared for raids in general, how do you think we should handle that?


Some tough questions for you (sorry about that!).


Best of luck with your application!

 Good morning Carrie!


 


Your first question is too hard, I surrender!!! I would go for the raid, I love guild raids and is the most hard activity to set up for the number of players involved (same way, I don't want to let down all the raiding team). 
I would postpone the transmog run if it's possible and about the board game night, if we have more guild member from UK like Manuel I would propose a real life board game weekend! (maybe bringing laptop for a real life old achievs run also?! tongue out)


 


About "wipe night"... In Vanilla it was an achieve for us to kill a boss! I never remember "wipe night" feelings during raids.  It took us weeks (months?) to kill Onyxia the first time. I just remember the huge sensation of victory for killing her, can't remember bad feelings for the hundreds of wipes!


During TBC and WotLK I had the luck to being a member of a mature and easy going guild (main tank: female warrior gnome called Chocochips with pink pony tails!). 
The guild chat was always active, people chatting while fishing and logging in just to say hello. A lot of heroic runs. Being all "friends" get us the chance to never going mad during raids I suppose (also here, how many wipes in Gruul's Lair!). Strange thing: we never used voice chat, everything was done in WoW chats!


Now days I would say that you I would raid for fun and achievements, I don't mind so much about loots. To be honest, who cares if we wipe or not sometime. I just want to finish the expansion being able to do my best with a bunch of nice and funny people! For easy kills and purple loot you have LFR tool.


 


About let casuals to raid... Well I'm a casual now days so you are doing good! tongue out


I think the best thing is just speak, explain tactics, remember to read guides (also providing links), just in case bring extra flasks and food.


In Vanilla we used to have a private channel for every class if the guild (5 mins blessing needed a lot of macro spam to remember 6 pallies to bless 40 people each 5 mins!).


I was used to use the channel to give positive feedback about Recount stats for healing. We used improvement feedback mainly in whispers. 


Paladin class leader was a Spanish guy called Redemptor. He used to spend some time with me in Winterspring, he was going for elite mobs and I was going to heal him, to improve my skills.


I think that friendly attitude and active training are the best things to do Happy


 


Going to work, will read other posts this evening!


Claudio

Hey Claudio, thank you for your answers.

Yes, I'm still living in Yorkshire. I moved to the UK in 2002. Time flies!

Terrific Italian artists you have linked there. When I was young a friend gave me a lot of Italian comic books he brought from Italy, I still have some with me which I treasure. I particularly loved Dylan Dog Happy

Ciao Claudio!

Love your application. We are almost neighbours, I used to work in Leeds (about an hour on the train). So, a few questions:

1- Pineapple on Pizza - yay or nay?
2- What are your top 5 graphic novels?
3- In your experience, what is the main difference between English culture and Italian culture? As a Peruvian/Spanish, I'm curious to listen about this Happy

All the best!

Manuel.





¡Hola Manuel,


 


are you still living in the Yorkshire? Happy I'm here from January!


 


Ok well... Pizza is an important and serious topic for an Italian guy!! tongue out I would say that Italian Pizza can't have pineapple on it, but American Pizza is totally fine with pineapple, I've also eaten it a couple of time, it's not bad at all, just different from the Italian one Happy (as Chinese food eaten in EU is different from the Chinese food eaten in China, and both are great!)


 


Top 5 graphic novels.. I would say for sure Sandman, Watchman and Marvels! Also love Hellboy and the manga Vagabond. At the moment I'm reading The Preacher and Judge Dredd and I love them so far! I also into Moebius. About Italian artists I love Sergio Toppi (http://www.paulgravett.com/articles/article/sergio_toppi), Simone Bianchi (https://www.simonebianchi.com/media.php) and Gabriele dell'Otto (https://www.scottscollectables.co.uk/gabriele-dellotto) and I'm an old fan of Dylan Dog Happy
My favourite superhero is Stan The Man Lee! :-p


 


About difference between English and Italian culture, let's make an example: how people are polite. In England every one is polite. It's really hard to find bad manners in a store or a restaurant. In Italy on the other hand, you may find really bad behaviour some time, other times excellent behaviour. I would say this is more or less true for everything: food, people, cities, museums, stores etc. 


 


By the way... Just reached item level 305 and did my first heroic! :D (with some nice drama between healer and tank, drama is evergreen in WoW)

Hello Claudio!


 


Thank you so much for your great application! As you perhaps have seen, we have a sort of custom to ask some questions, just to get to know an applicant a little better! So I'll start us of!


 


Q. What is your favourite rock/hard rock band? Mine's Rainbow and Queen!

Q. Does one pronounce your name Cloud-eo or Claw'd-eo? Or something entirely different?


Q. What has been the best part of this expansion, for you so far?




 Hi there John!


 


Also my favourite band is Queen! Just been to see Bohemian Rhapsody a couple of evenings ago Happy I also love Pink Floyd, Beatles, Offspring, Ramones, Oasis and Mumford and Sons. I'm a big fan and sponsor of a new and little Italian band from Rome called "I Santi Bevitori!" If you like country rock music with funny and ironic lyrics go them a go on You Tube! Happy


 


My name is pronounced Claw'd-eo! It's a latin name from the Roman Emperor Claudio... It has not the best meaning around, it's from the latin verb "claudico" that means "limp"... argh! 
You can also call me Grum as my pally Happy never been sure about the pronunciation of Grumnir, I like both GrAm and GrUm!


 


I would say that I love the new capital city, the musics and the atmosphere... Also the graphic seems pretty nice! I'm a bit lost now at 120, just doing some randoms quest and normal dungeons... I hope I will enjoy the end game!

As a guild we pride ourselves on our friendly community. Tell us a bit about you as a person outside of the game?:
Hi all! I'm from Rome, Italy. Moved in Leeds, UK months ago.
I'm a big geek (comics, board games, card games, fantasy and sci-fi fictions, gaming). I love cooking, reading, listening music (rock 60s/70s and old punk and hard rock).
I used to play WoW from Vanilla to WotLK. I enjoyed raiding as on holy pally (I'm applying with my first char ever made and I'm a proud owner of Field Marshal Replica Transmog Set! XD)
After WotLK I've played now and then. I've just levelled up to 120 and I would love to join a good social guild to restart looking into end-game PvE! (I'm a big noob in PvP ops!)

P.S. I'm Italian but... I don't drink coffee and wine, I'm celiac so only gluten-free pasta and pizza for me, I don't like football, I prefer baseball so well... Not a lot of Italian clichés working for me! :(

Which sort of projects and events would you be interested in participating in?:
Raiding, light RP, achieves and transmog runs, board games night! (Just bought Descent 2 and Sword & Sorcery, love them!) and helping out other players!
Would also enjoy playing together Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm!

What made you apply to join this guild? What is it about us that attracted you and what do you want from us as a guild?:
Would love to join a social and raiding guild to enjoy together a couple of hours per day Happy
I don't have a lot of spare time now days so I would not like to spend my time in WoW just jumping around in Stormwind waiting for a PUG (that will ask me tons of achievs just for disband after 15 minutes, argh!)

How did you hear about us?:
https://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17624423370 <--- here!

If you are interested in our raiding project, what sort of raiding experience do you have?:
Normal difficulty

Any extra raiding comments? Have you raided in a previous expansion?:
Ok so... let me try to remember...

I've raided mainly from Vanilla to WotLK as an holy paladin a warrior tank and a warlock.
I've raided a bit in MoP and have some light Mythic experience in Siege of Ogrimmar (just some bosses).

At the moment I don't have even an add-on and I've just dinged 120 but I would be glad to restart raiding :)
