[b]Character name:[/b] Le Rouge
[b]Character class:[/b] Wanderer
[b]Character level:[/b] 136
Several years on and off.
My primary account was created in 2003. My current account was created on 2011 -I had to make a new account because Gravity is sexist and wouldn't allow a dancer on my main account.
[b]Past guild experience and why you left:[/b]
I have a couple years of pre-renewal WoE experience. Mostly on a knight/lord knight. circa late 2006. Not much noteworthy since then.
I quit RO and restarted on Iris. I joined Phoenix? as a Stalker and played until a few months before the merge.
I started playing again with some friends in 2011 due to 3rd classes hype and made a Wanderer with intentions to WoE. Quit after a short time because my friends were not keeping up in levels as they had lost interest in the game.
[b]WoE availability:[/b] Saturday
Wednesday availability will depend on whether or not I can get RO running on my Macbook with satisfactory performance.
Full disclosure: I play WoW and I raid with my guild three times a week (no conflicts with WoE days). I'm the raid leader of a Mythic raid team, but I have no problems with authority. In fact, I miss the simpler and less stressful life back when I was merely a cog in a server-first progression guild. My commitment to my guild will mean that I will not be logging on RO every night.
I'm not up-to-date on the current optimal gear for Wanderers in WoE.
Rather, I compiled a list of gear that I have that might be worth something. Most of the gear has probably been supplanted due to power creep/gear progression (hey, it's what keeps mmorpg's alive), but I can try to liquidate it to buy starter WoE gear.
Dying Swan 
Miraculous Glasses 
Improved Tights  x 2
+7 Orc Archer Bow
+8 Valkyrian Manteau 
Clip Under a Cast 
Teleport Belt 
+7 Cranial Valkyrja's Shield 
+7 Cancer Crown
Black Frame Glasses  x 2
Battle Manual X3 x20
HD Elunium 10 Box x 20
Abysmal Knight Helm  x3
Waterdrop Brooch  x2
Nidhoggur's Shadow Garb 
Elite Archer Suit 
Combat Boots 
Commander's Manteau 
+7 Feather Beret 
+6 Titan Ice Pick 
+7 Kingbird Elven Bow 
+7 Queen's Whip
+9 Veteran Axe
+7 Virgo Crown
+5 Dark Bacilium 
A friend of mine borrowed gear previously worth 300mil and never returned it. If I can get him to re-install and re-log, I might have some more crap to sell to fund WoE expenses.
[b]What is your role in WoE?[/b]
I remember choosing a Dancer over Bard because I thought it would be more fun to Slow Grace over being a Magic Strings bot.
Also, Classical Pluck used to be good for precasts. Not sure if that's still a thing with the new castle layouts.
I'm getting old. My micro isn't what it used to be, even with my ethnic bonus to micro skills. Dancer/Gypsy/Wanderer seems like a pretty straightforward class.
[b]Do you have Mumble and a mic?[/b] I have both.
[b]Sell yourself - What can you bring to LR?[/b]
Consider this a pre-application. I don't meet the level requirements and I haven't amassed the gear necessary for WoE.
My game knowledge is basically zero at this point, and I have to relearn how to play the game. Given the lack of activity on RO-related forums, getting in contact with an established guild seems to be the best way to get up-to-date information and expedite that process.
After over a decade of playing mmorpgs, it still amazes me to this day that years ago 40/40 people would show up to WoE and now I can't even get 20 people out of 30 people to show up to raid in WoW. I have no idea what kind of commitment the players of Loki's Realm have, but it would be nice to experience that once more.

welcome back to RO, there are a LOT of new things to do/learn about, a lot of your gear will probably be sold for start up cash. great application by the way, and sorry the forums were down all day yesterday
we're able to get at least 30 on for WoE 1.0s and 40 for 2.0s, so you'll be liking that.
Please register on forums. Then once I activate you, log in and check out how LR works and please re-introduce yourself in these threads:
