Shamypriest, aka Drew, is our resident Shadow Priest and ranged DPS leader. He has been in the guild just shy of 2 years, is a fantastic player, always willing to help a guildie out whenever he can, and probably one of the nicest guys you'll run into. He is very talkative so whenever you have a chance we encourage you to strike up a conversation with him!
Drew is 21 years old and punched the most recent Oklahoma tornado in the face with his gigantic priest power. Watch out storms!
See his original application here:
1. When did you start playing WoW and how did you get started?
I started playing in December of 2006, and I think I just started playing because somebody told me about it, I don't exactly remember why. My first server was Black Dragonflight and I was alliance.
2. What was your first toon?
My first toon was a night elf warrior. I've always really liked high fantasy literature, I’ve read a lot of fantasy books and I probably went with it as a reference from that. “Being an elf! that would be cool!” I liked being an undead so much more though.
3. When did you join <PI> and how did you discover the guild?
I actually think I found the guild through Claire (Symmone)! I joined during firelands. The history of our old guild, Hakkari Psychosis, is a complicated story … it pretty much died. We were an active 25 raiding guild but when Firelands came out, we just couldn't get things off the ground, it was like a brick wall and the guild dwindled. It got to the point that I was the only one logging on and it didn't feel like a community at all anymore. It was rough.
4. What is your favorite boss encounter?
Alysrazor, I liked lying around with that haste buff and melting faces.
5. What is your favorite raid instance?
Karahazan! I liked everything; the setting, the music, the bosses, they were all fun.
At the time, Opera was a really unique encounter.
6. What is your favorite raid boss emote?
Kel’Thuzad, when he’s talking to the king in wotlk, more of an RP even than an emote, but that was my favorite part.
7. If given the opportunity, what ability would you add to your class? (feel free to be as nonsensical as your heart desires)
A class specific mount would be really cool! I’d like to have a quest like the old paladin or warlock ones, it would be sweet to have something like that for priests.
8. Who is your favorite guildie?
Razmajaz and Symmone, haha! Actually I'd have to say T, he’s always been really cool and willing to help people out.
9. Tell us about one great wow memory.
I remember the first time I ever set foot in Karazhan, I got hopelessly lost. But I also remember it being rather hilarious because a few other people got lost trying to find me, and we all wound up dying because of it.
1. What is your favorite things to do outside of game?
I really like to read! i just finished the wheel of time series by Robert Jordan, it was badass series, I really liked it. Right now I’m reading the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I’ve read a lot of other books along those lines! haha.
2. What do you do for a living/what do you study in school?
My jobs not terribly interesting, I’m working as a cook, I started doing that for the summer. we get creative there sometimes, we get bored haha. a bored cook is something to behold.
At school I’m studying computer science! I’m studying at OKS.
3. What is you favorite food? Favorite drink?
I know this is not classy at all but I'm tempted to say shells and cheese, haha. I really like rueben sandwiches too. I don't really have a favorite drink, i try not to drink soda. I usually just drink water.
4. Tell us about one great RL memory you have.
The Christmas that I got an N64 was awesome. I freaked out in a way pretty similar to that N64 kid on youtube. That was definitely the moment I became a gamer. Plus it was a lot of fun because my mom and dad were still together at that point, which meant
that I got to play a lot of games with my dad. He was good at platformers, but absolutely terrible at multiplayer games, which still amuses me today.
6. What other games do you play?
PlanetSide, thats the only other online game that I play. I play a lot of other offline games, I really like the final fantasy and legend of zelda series.
My favorite final fantasy game was 10.
7. Two truths and a lie.
I liked the Lei Shen encounter
I love Ocarina of Time
I liked Heroic Spine
