=== Application Instructions ===

Postby Dae » Tue Nov 11, 2008 5:48 am

Dawn Eternal is an endgame raiding guild on Cenarius. We are looking for skilled players with positive attitudes, a desire to raid endgame content, and a willingness to learn and improve in all areas of the game.

See the stickied post in this forum, or contact an officer to inquire about our class needs. Even if we are full on one class, feel free to apply or contact us about your app - you never know when a spot might open up, and the sooner your app is in the better. We also always make exceptions for the very geared, very skilled, and very dedicated.


Application steps:

1) Sign up for a forum account using your in-game character name.
2) Check your email.
3) Post an application here using the below post as a form.
4) Contact an officer to get the post-app talk (info about ranks, loots, current class balance, etc...). At the end of the talk the officer will ask you to join our recruitment chat channel. [Please give some time after posting the application for people to actually read it before you contact and officer for the post-app talk; ie. come looking for someone a day or 2 after you post or if someone directly replies to it]
5) Show up at raid time and listen to the DE recruitment channel where there will be a call for app tells for invites. You should be sending tells and getting in raid even if we happen to be going somewhere that you are not attuned for.


Do not reply to this thread with your application. Create a new post on this forum. Be aware that you cannot edit posts in this forum.


A note about DE applications: It will take about 2-3 weeks raiding at minimum to get a guild tag. We also take our applicants seriously. This means that if we find that you are guild shopping (putting in another application to another guild while raiding with us), we will immediately cut your app, no questions asked. We want you to be serious about joining us, as we are serious about taking you in.

Like every typical essay question you encountered in junior high English - please address every part of every question! Use proper punctuation and spelling (perhaps type it up in Word and then copy-paste to here).


Character Name:

Class and Race:

Other characters on Cenarius:

Other characters on other servers:

Guild history and reasons for leaving:

Play time availability:

Names of DE members you know and/or sponsors, if any:

Do you have Ventrilo and, ideally, a microphone?

Do you have a reliable internet connection?

Raid experience, in vanilla, BC, Wrath, Cata, Mists, Warlords... (include how much of the instance you've seen and which guilds you raided with):

Link to your gear (Armory):

Link to a recent WoL report (optional):

Also, please answer the following questions in a few sentences or so:

1. Cenarius has many excellent raiding guilds. Why are you choosing to app to DE, instead of any other guild on the server? What are your goals in DE? Why should we tag you and what qualifies you to be in DE? (Note to server transfers: answer this question particularly thoroughly)

2. What do you use as your secondary spec (you do have one, right?), and how do your talent choices in that spec potentially benefit the raid? Which of the roles are you mainly interested in - would you possibly be interested in taking different roles within a raid depending on encounter? Do you have the gear to support this second spec?

3. What are two things you could do *outside of raids* to improve your character and really make your Armory profile stand out from someone of the same class and progression?

4. Raiding requires a certain mentality and attitude towards approaching a fight. Are you able to take criticism and suggestions about your spec, gear, or play, and are you able to learn to change or adjust accordingly? Are you able to critically look at a given attempt and see what went wrong, and what could be improved? Do you show up with a positive attitude, a willingness to cooperate with your peers, and the required consumables and knowledge of the fights ahead?

5. What are our raid times, and what kind of attendance (percentage-wise) can you hold? Did you read and understand the stickies posted in our forums?

6. Is there anything else about yourself or your character that you'd like to share (i.e. tradeskills, pvp, special circumstances, anything we left out)?


After you have posted your application, contact an officer (Dae, Dakina, Gorlyn or Sensistar) in-game, or message any DE member and ask for an officer. Note that we are NOT responsible for contacting you - you should come to us. Your app does not actually start until you do this! The officers are very busy with raid, guild, and real-life duties, so it may take a couple of attempts to get ahold of one of us. This is the time to ask any questions about the guild and/or your application, so make sure you're prepared to chat.
