What are you looking for in a guild?
I am looking for a 2 night a week guild capable of getting AOTC comfortably. I have a extensive Mythic background however at this point all I'm interested in is clearing content on Heroic. I want a respectful adult environment with likeminded mature players who look out for one another and don't operate on the lowest-common-denominator of internet anonymity. I have a 6 year old son who watches me play frequently and so I'm not looking for explicit and profanity laden conversations.

Why do you want to join Ars Discordia? I had a friend in Ars Discordia ages ago, back when I was on Alliance the first time around. She was a nelf druid and her name is escaping me but I've always remembered the guild name.

Previous Guild + Reason for leaving:
This is prolly more that you care to know but here goes: For the last 5 years I was the founder and GM of a Mythic guild on horde. Things were great up until ToS when our raid leader quit WoW and people started losing interest in hard progression. We ended up merging and unmerging with another guild in ABT and then we just settled on a hiatus from raiding until BFA. Last week I was looking at some of the lore involved with the expansion and how Sylvanas was going full Hitler Lichqueen. It made me uncomfortable as a horde player to be pushed in such a ostensibly 'evil' direction and get very far removed from the ideals of the Horde I joined. The more research I did the more I realised that it was a line that I couldn't cross. This is not only because of my own convictions but doubly because I already mentioned that my son watches me play. 6 years olds don't understand morally grey and RP; the world to them is black and white. So I couldn't teach my son about life in 1 way and then turn around and do the opposite in a video game. It may be trivial to some people but for me its a lead by example thing. So I said goodbye to my guild and transferred back to Alliance. I have to be true to myself and my convictions even at the cost of the WoW family I built over the last 5 years. I'm very proud that I built a guild strong enough to withstand even me walking away from it and so its in good hands now and I left on good terms.

Interested In Raiding? (Y/N) Yes
If Yes:

What raiding style do you prefer? I'm very chill and so I'm good with whatever seriousness level you guys want to operate on. I'd be disappointed if I didn't manage AOTC in a patch but short of that I'm easy to please.
Describe your raiding experience
-Started Raiding in Kara
-Raided and cleared Normal raids until end Cataclysm
-Killed Heroic Deathwing
--joined a decent raiding guild in Mists--

-Cutting Edge Xavius (7/7M)
-AOTC Gul'dan (8/10M)
-AOTC Kil'jaeden (6/9M)
-Cutting Edge Argus (3/11M) (took a break after dogs and killed Argus when I got back)

Who is your favorite deceased WoW Hero? Cairne Bloodhoof

What else do we need to know about you in order to make our decision? I'm currently in an alt guild of mine to keep from getting spammed constantly by addons.
I've been on the back end of guild management and leadership for the last 5 years so I'd describe myself as a "Raid Leaders' Raider". I'm fairly quiet, I tend to be fairly no nonsense, high focus kind of raider. I have 18 lvl 110s and I play every class, every role at a high level. I'm a major altoholic and will have plenty to offer for dungeons.

Sorry this was alot of words...I used to be a warrior bloggist and tend to be long winded =)

Stoic, thank you very much for taking the time to apply.

It definitely looks like we could be a good match for what you're looking for (casual, but capable of AOTC, respectful, two nights a week raiding, mature - we're mostly age 30+).

One thing I have to say, though, is there can be a good deal of swearing in our raids, and we don't ask anyone to censor themselves. There may also be the occasional explicit joke, too.

Sorry if that's a deal-breaker for you, and we do very much appreciate you taking the time to write a thorough application.

That said, if you'd still like to give us a try, send a tell to any officer (Arthillius, Praze, Ellenia, Valth, Joat, Proteus). Or feel free to /who Ars Discordia and ask if any officers are on their alts.

Stoic#1785 is my Discord tag, that will be the best way to communicate with me in general. I'll be travelling for the next week and a half so I'll be on inconsistently until August. Swearing in voice doesn't bother me because I have headphones on, it's mostly text that I am vigilant about. I do use the profanity filter but that only does so much. I work in law enforcement so I'm well accustomed to swearing.
