I'm Eric (Shiatsu in game).I don't know how far along you guys are in progression, or if you're still accepting newer raiders, but I'd be interested in joining you if/when you guys start back up. I had a coworker convince me to give this game a try about 3 months ago after I told myself I'd never play because I knew I'd get sucked in. Well, I did. We ran LFRs together on another server, Horde side, for about a week before he got a promotion and left me with zero WoW buddies (and none of my other friends were willing to get sucked in this close to Fantasy Football Season). Anyway, my ilvl isn't the highest at the moment, but it hass gone up quickly to get where it is, and I hope that continues. Thanks for your time!

Short Answer Questions
What are your raiding goals for this expansion?
[ X ] To get some raiding experience before the expansion drops, maybe find a group to go into the expansion with
What makes a raiding group especially good for you?
[ X ] Good natured/easy going people that take raiding seriously (if that makes sense)
What factors lead to a less successful raiding experience for you?
[ X ] Drama/Calling out in a rude way/Negativity

Anything else you might want a prospective raid leader to know about you?
[ X ] I'm still fairly new to this game. I've been playing for about 3 months, the first of which was spent trying out every class and deleting them somewhere between level 20-40. All of my raiding experience is in LFR and mainly on a Shadow Priest I have on a different server (and is Horde). I used my level 90 boost on the Monk and now it's my main. I love it. You don't have to worry about burn out with me, or poor attendance because the game is still shiny and new to me. As long as you put up with the learning I'd have to do (and I'm a fast learner), I'd love to join you guys.
