Hi Manuel! Thanks for your patience while we reviewed your application. I haven't commented so far as I've had a pretty hectic week but I'm glad to see the other guild members and officers have stepped in! With that in mind, I’m happy to announce that we’ve decided to accept you into our guild! Message myself or another office in-game for an invite.
You may wish to join our Facebook group at the page below, but this is entirely option:
If you have any questions regarding your trial, please feel free to ask. Also, please note that if you need to take time away from the game at any point during your trial it is important that you inform an officer as soon as possible so that this does not adversely affect your trial.
I only have one question: Our best DPS player in the guild mains a character names Leeshdhun. If we payed you lots and lots of money, would you immortalize them in art?
PS: Youre portfolio is amazing!
PPS: Glad to see someone else of a more proper age apply ;)
Hi, Ye-roon :)
I had a favourite colour as a kid, it was green. If you ask my sisters, they would say my favourite colour is black, because my wardrobe is predominant in dark colours. The truth is, and maybe this is because of my background, I don't have a favourite colour as such, I believe there is an adequate colour depending on the occasion.
As for why is the Dark Iron the best allied-race. Well, they are Dwarfs but better: meaner, tougher, fiery, with glowing red eyes that are like looking at the heart of a volcano :D
Their voices sound better too, and look at the Heritage Armour! I'm currently levelling a Paladin - that Darkforge Ram is something else!
Thing is... I love dwarfs (spelt as in Warhammer): I have done a few: https://herearedragons.uk/illustration/dwarfs/
Regarding Survival on WoD, I can't say because I skipped that expansion, I was totally burned out.
Hey, thank you Xander!
I was Marksman for most of Legion, I didn't dislike Survival but I was already playing a Warrior as a main - why another melee, right? Then the pre-patch happened. I was so disappointed with MM! It was also time to pick a class to start levelling up and I was umming and erring which one.
So, I read some good comments about the "new" Survival and I thought: what the heck, let's try it. Went in with zero expectations and just like that, I fell in love with the gameplay. I had my 'melee fix' but also I could keep my range. Going in an out the fight as I needed it. Best thing, I could still have my pet.
Regarding the events, from what I can see, I can't think of anything else to add right now - but if I have an idea I won't be shy to suggest it!
Now, about Yorkshire. I live in the countryside and I love it. Green hills everywhere, the scenery is fantastic. I am 1 hour away from Leeds on the train and about 40 min from Manchester, so commuting is not that bad. I have made good friends and I feel part of the community - even as a minority. In general, I like the English way to do things. For example, how orderly the people are when driving and how friendly the public services are. Some folks may disagree with me, but to them I say: You need to travel more. Experience the chaos in South American roads and then moan to me again about English drivers :P
Culturally I feel there are no major differences. The biggest one perhaps is that in Latin American countries there is no concept of personal space! Hugs and kisses all the time - and people seem to be a lot more cheerful. It may be the weather!
I have to say, me gusta mucho your application.
Honestly, I don't have a lot to add other than 'please give this guy a trial' as I think you've pretty much nailed the guild ethos on the head.
So I'm curious on something more than anything. I play a Demonology Warlock, and like Survival Hunter, we were deeply unpopular since our revamps in Legion and again in BfA. What made you want to go for Survival in this expansion as opposed to the simpler specs such as Beast Mastery? I ask you this as many people have asked why I don't play Affliction.
Secondly, do you think there is anything missing from our events? Could you envisage yourself adding something new? It's not a requirement, but we're always looking for more ideas.
Finally, what do you think of Yorkshire and England generally? I mean, Yorkshire is pretty much a country!
If I get a gold coin for everytime someone mentions... I'd have bought the Brutosaur mount by now! Hah!
More often than Fawlty Towers references, what I get a lot is people misspelling my name: Manual, Emmanuel, Manwell, etc. And don't get me started with my surname :P
