Deston Application

Postby Deston » Tue May 30, 2017 4:33 pm

About you (in real-life):

Name: David
Age: 45
Nationality: USA

I'm a casual gamer and very easy going. I enjoy the social aspect of gaming and immersion in the game world for relaxation and exploration. I'm a technical writer by trade.

What is your previous LoTRO experience (including previous kinships)?
I tried LOTRO a few times with different classes for experimentation. I joined one kinship, I believe it was called the Merchants of Bree. I wasn't impressed, as it was newly formed and the members seem to be focused on bragging about their playing skills (usually while drunk). I purchased some quest packs and the quad expansion deal, as well as a VIP subscription (today). I started all fresh characters to get them those in-game benefits, in all classes except minstrel, beorning, and burglar.

Why do you want to join The Elders?
Your group seems like a good fit for my personality and my gaming style.

What do you plan to do with your time (e.g. raiding, levelling, questing)?
Questing and exploration to start. If accepted, I'd really like to learn how to work in a fellowship in instances. I haven't had the opportunity to do one yet, which is ironic as the teamwork aspect of the game is strongly appealing to me. So far levelling seems to simply happen on it's own. I have the content to get me smoothly to level 85, and at at point I'll certainly have enough turbine points to unlock areas I'll be needing--I hope.

About your LOTRO character:
I'll be using a hunter as my main for now, until I learn more about fellowship dynamics. I love the ranger archetype in games, and their travel skills appeal to my need for exploration. DPS seems to be a good choice to learn grouping skills as there's not as much of an expectation or responsibility in contrast to a tank or healer.

Once I learn those, I will eventually start leveling a support or tanking character as those appeal to me as well.

Name: Deston
Class: Hunter
Level: 1
Trade skills: I'm not sure what to go with here. Scholar seems good as I've read you can create oils, which hunters use. However, farming and cooking look like an excellent combination as food provides some nice benefits from what I can see.

You are genuinely very welcome to join us but I need to point out that we're an EU kinship. That's likely to have consequences for you that might mean we're not the best home - in short, when you're online we may all be in bed!

But if you have odd hours, or just want to give us a try then we're very happy to have that happen! :D

My hours are indeed quite odd, which is why I'm looking for an EU-based group, and in fact why I'm on Laurelin in the first place. What's the next step?

Just look for Elders when you're next online and ask for an officer, they'll let you into the madhouse
