Meet Featured Guildie Catrix
Featured Guildie Catrix is our focus today.
1. Please take a screenshot of your character in your favourite transmog.
2. What is your main chars name/class/favourite spec?
Catrix, Druid, Balance
3. When did you first start playing WoW?
Day 1 of Vanilla. I was 11 at the time (you can use that to work out what a youngster I am if you feels so inclined), I did most of the vanilla content spamming Wisdom onto people on my holy paladin for a raiding guild I was in with my father and some of his work colleagues at the time although I hindsight I was probably horrendous at the game.
I started taking things seriously around Wrath, joining my first serious progression guild clearing icc 25 hc by in what would now be considered decent time, I went on to push for top 200 in Cata but burnt out around the beginning of Dragon Soul, I stupidly lent my account to a friend to try the game as most of my characters were max level and well geared but was banned for account sharing. I regret that to this day losing a tonne of transmog etc. that I’ll never be able to earn back.
4. What was the first character you ever created?
I’m pretty sure that my first character was a hunter but I played it for all of about 15 mins before rerolling to my human female paladin Alicael, my paladin on my current account is named Alicael as well, in honour of my first character on the account I lost.
5. What is your favourite zone in the game?
It’s usually whichever zone I spend the most time AFK in, so in Legion, it was Dalaran, right now, Boralus.
6. If your current favourite class didn’t exist, what would your main be?
I’d probably be a paladin, rogue or demon hunter. either retribution, assassination or havoc respectively.
7. Name a player that you admire, and why (you don’t have to know them personally)
I’m a huge fan of all the guys in Method, Sco specifically the most, I admire his ability to turn a passion into a business and still compete at the highest level.
The reason I chose to play balance after realising feral wasn’t going to be for me this expansion was from a combination of watching Pottm and Lorgok and thinking to myself I could do that, I don’t normally play casters but there experience on the class has allowed me to settle in a become proficient in a short period of time, something which I believe that I wouldn’t have achieved in such a short space of time without their streams.
8. Tell us about an amazing experience you had in game.
I set out to complete as many mythic tiers in Legion as I could and wanted to both push myself outside of my comfort zone and try something new. I went on to play my rogue Vaeleria for all the tiers in legion, achieving cutting edge Nighthold and server first Antorus Mythic with VLR, I’m currently hoping to achieve all mythic kills and hopefully all server first with you guys in Exiles.
9. Any favourite movies or music you want to share?
I love old school slasher flicks such as Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, I’m a massive fanboy for anything star wars related having grown up watching the originals on VHS and actually own my own replica grade lightsaber which was hand cut and machine out of aircraft grade aluminium and imported from the states.
I’m a mixed bag when it comes to music, my dad is a huge 80’s thrash metal guy and my mum loves country and glam rock, I grew up listening to bands such as Slayer, Metallica and Sepultura as well as stuff like the Rolling Stones, Dolly Parton and Bon Jovi.
10. After WoW, which other game, have you invested a significant amount of time in?
I played Star Wars the Old Republic to a world first standard being fortunate enough to have been in several of the best guilds at the time, I also played and ran a guild in Rift with several of the people in Exiles to a top 100 world standard. Outside of MMO’s I’ve got 600 hours on DOTA 2, around 1000 hours on League of Legends, with CS:GO being my third most played game with nearly 300 hours played.
11. OPTIONAL! Send me a pic of your current set up.
