Curse of Years Application form.
Remember your application is the first impression we have on you, be as in depth as possible on all areas of the application.

Your Name, Age, Gender and Location:
My name is Michael Gelardi, I am a WHITE male if that’s needed to know, and I am located in Denmark.

Tell us a little bit about yourself (non-WoW related Interests, Hobbies etc.)
I’m educated in energy engineering from Aalborg University, and looking to study my candidate next year, otherwise I’m just chilling and working a bit to survive, I don’t have a “real” job yet, but I am defiantly looking, otherwise I enjoy training and regularly go to the gym, 4-5 days a week.
Beside that I of course enjoy playing computer and my main game is defiantly WoW, where I switch between Classic and Retail.
And I occasionally enjoy CS:GO, Fortnite, League etc.

Character Information:
Armory Link: ... ale/fygger


Describe your choice of talents and why you've chosen them:
The assassination rogue talents are pretty much straight forward, with only small adjustments able to be done, depending on your traits / fight needs.
It differs between Master Assassin for single target & Subterfuge for AoE IF you have Shrouded Suffocation trait. Other than that, the talents are set in stone for every fight.
Besides for Za’qul where the rogue’s job can differ from other rogues, and depending on which realms they are going to join etc. Where Leeching Poison may be superior etc.

How do you prioritize your stats and why?
I sim myself, but stat weights can often fluxgate and therefore it’s important for me to sim myself often and as thoroughly as possible, but with that said Critical Strike, Haste and Mastery is probably going to be an assassination rogue’s best stats, so a juggle between those.

Where do you acquire knowledge about your Class?
MMO-Champion Forums, Discord Servers, WoWHead and Ravenholdt (Discord/Website) and then I try to compare myself with what other rogues have done / are doing on fights from Warcraftlogs.

(Ensure that all Key Bindings are visible)

What state is the state of your Heart of Azeroth?
I’m currently 65, which I think is quite good for a person that came into the game 1½ month late to raid Eternal Palace, I had a goal of 65 before Classic, so I could go complete mental in there.

Raiding History:

Describe your previous/current raiding experience:
I’ve been playing WoW for many years, but I will mention my most current progression / history.
I started going more serious in raiding in Legion where I joined a guild called <Vex Thal>.
Which ended up with
Nighthold: 10/10M
Tomb of Sargeras: 9/9M
Antorus, the Burning Throne: 11/11M
Uldir: 6/8M – Had to quit due to exams getting overhand.
BoD: 8/9M – Had Jaina on 7% wipe one night, but then we stopped for the evening, and from then on I just gave my spot away for other people that could use loot from Jaina, none the less my guild <Vex Thal> killed it many times.
Crucible of Storms: 1/2M – Yeah, melee life on Uu’nat, but again my guild <Vex Thal> killed Uu’nat.
Then I had a break from WoW and came back for The Eternal Palace: Where I currently only am 4/8M, with 39% on Orgozoa.

Tell us about your previous guilds and your reasons for leaving them:
There haven’t been many guilds that I’ve been in but most recently I’ve been in
<Vex Thal>-Stormscale
<Stack on Purple>-Stormscale

I played in Mayhem during BoD, where I raided the whole tier with IRL friends, and progressed Jaina with them, but due to exams and the guild more or less breaking down and my IRL friends leaving, I had to take a small break, which ended up in me joining back into <Vex Thal>, where they took me in as I’ve never went away, to be fair I really enjoyed the guild and the people in it, even though they can be very extreme and not for the light hearted. But due to their core roster consisting of two other rogues, and with me recently joining on my rogue when I played Demon Hunter back in Legion with them, there were limited raiding time, so we both agreed that I should try and seek other possibilities. Then I had a break from Jaina until 8.2 and more specific 1½ months into The Eternal Palace I found <Stack on Purple> which took me in, even though I was heavily under geared and my neck level was 50 at the time, but I promised that I would grind my ass off for them and within two weeks I was up to date.
Then I raided with them until classic hit where most of the members from the guild kind of quit retail to play classic, which Is probably a case in most guilds these days.

Please do tell me if there’s something that has to be clarified about my guild history, but I’d like to mention that I am by no means a guild hopper or anything, I raided with Vex for over a year and I would still have done that If it was not for my exams etc.

More Information:

Can you meet our raid schedule of Wed/Thur/Mon 21:00 to 00:00 server time with at least 90% attendance?
Yes, the times fit me perfectly, since I have time to come home, get dinner and get ready for a raid. I hate the fact that some guilds start at 19:00, which just makes me rush dinner etc. And also Wed/Thur/Mon is great days for raiding imo.

We also raid on Sunday at the start of a new raiding tier. Are you aware of this?
Yes, I am aware, and the fact that I work most Sundays will still not be a problem, since the raid times is as late as it is, and also, I get off work at around 15:00.

Are you able to Listen and Speak on Teamspeak?
Yes, I got a working microphone and I am not afraid of talking by no means, but I also respect silence when raiding so that the most clutch calls can be communicated without a lot of background noice.

What qualities do you bring to a Raid?
I see myself as a very generous raider, I don’t mind sacrificing my own damage / life for the greater good of the raid, if it means that we will kill the boss, which I hope is the same for most people, but my good qualities that I bring must be my attitude towards raiding, which I see as positive and in a good mood even though I’ve wiped for hours and 300+ wipes.
It’s very rare that you will hear me moan about a boss or it’s shit mechanics / design.
So yeah, I’m very uplifting and happy when raiding, but also very quiet on TS/Discord whenever raiding.

How comfortable are you playing your offspecs?
I love playing Outlaw – I like it for M+ and I love the fact that some bosses now make it possible for spec changing as well, such as Organzoa.

How do you feel about progression raiding?
As mentioned above I don’t moan about wiping 300+ times, so I feel good about it and especially when you can see that you get like 1% better raid for raid or maybe even pull for pull.

Where did you hear about Curse of Years and do you know anyone in the guild?
I’m sad to say that I’ve never heard about you, but I was lucky enough to get approached by Nagassh on Wowprogress, and yeah now I’m giving an application a shot.

What encouraged you to apply to Curse of Years?
To get back into raiding on a level that I can agree with, and where people come prepared and also a guild that have values and rules, compared to my most recent guild.

Do you play outside of raid?
I do play M+ and I will try to push my Score when I can, I have a small team of other Danish people that also wants to push above 2.5k so yeah, I am kind of playing beside raids, but right now Classic is also taking a lot of my time.
Is there anything else you'd like to add to your application?
I appreciated the approach and hope for the best, but please get in touch or poke me on discord on Fygge#6249 or battle net if there’s any questions you may have.

Tell us a joke:
Here comes one of my favorite cringe jokes, just because I couldn’t come up with others.
“What did the the drummer call his twin daughters?
Anna one, Anna two!”

Oh I think we used to be guildies. Remember Paper Airplanes back in Cata, 2013 or so?

Hey Pope, I don't think we did, since I played mage/warlock back then and was called Icyblast / Wreckii :).

But hey, who knows my memory could be bad.

Well I mostly remembered your name from the Facebook group we used for the guild. :P
Think it was mostly RBGs though.
