First off, by 'decent' I mean: having a timetable (3 nights a week 20:00+ server time, ideally, but would be up for 4) which people stick to, good attendance, everyone showing up prepped (at the very least knowing the boss abilities, with money for repairs etc.) and willing to put in time and wipes to progress rather than just farming the easy bosses. So not hardcore, just decent
And me: am now on Auchindoun EU, Tauren Moonkin, raided a lot during icc, took a break during Tier 1 of cata (cleared that tier on normal only - hated that expansion and not helped by guild disbands and being on a low pop server - I was on Boulderfist at the time). Returned recently, gt myself set up on a new realm, but only been mucking about on alts and making a bit of gold on the AH. I want to be able to play my way to an extent - so I will be Tauren Moonkin or nothing, although I do have a Nelf Moonkin close to max level and might be willing to go Alliance for the right guild. I'm not super-pro-awesome. I prep, I'm reliable, I focus, I am willing to put in what it takes to progress, and I'm sociable. I also make mistakes, am slightly obsessive about Moonkin and used to keep a stack of snowballs in my inventory to throw at raid leaders who made me use my offspec.
For me, the fun in WoW is raiding. If I could get into a decent raiding guild, I would buy MoP, race to 90, do the various rep farms etc. etc. If there is no chance, then I will continue to muck around on alts until my sub runs out, not bother buying MoP, and not re-sub. I'm enjoying GW2 at the moment - the only thing WoW offers me that GW2 doesn't is raiding (well, raiding and Moonkin. And nice movement/camera controls).
So honest opinions please (I am aware of the danger of asking that on this forum). Is a nice, progressive but friendly raiding guild going to accept such an application? Or am I wasting my time and theirs by applying?
Thanks in advance for any feedback/advice.
