Spearheaded by Loganis, we(mostly he) have created quick bios of our current and casual/retired players.
Similar to the yearly Quotebook, these should give non-guild players another glimpse into what kind of amazing people we have in the guild. Hopefully it is an atmosphere that many more will want to be part of. And it should come as a friendly reminder to each Death Jester, how much we value and appreciate everyone's contribution to the guild over the past five years.
Loganis will be releasing more on a weekly basis and then I'm sure we'll write one up for him
Dominique - Odds are if there's talk of an achievement on vent, or in guild chat, this is the man behind it. Not only does he rack up the achievement points, he also finds a way to nab many patterns, mounts, and of course boss kills. A long-standing core member of the raid team, Dom has been a solid rogue for countless raids and is truly dedicated to the guild. I mean come on...who raids while his wife is in labor? (yes, it's true..."Guys the contractions are getting pretty close")
Kariuto - Reliable, skilled, teamplayer...all of these describe Kar. When you hear you term "huntard", imagine the opposite and you'd have Kar. One of a select group of applicants that impressed right from the start with his attitude and skill. An avid theorycrafter who is always around to share ideas, strategies, and to continue making his way towards 200,000 HKs.
Thorbear - An ex-warrior tank for the guild, Thorbear has played a part in many of Death Jesters' kills. Nowadays, if he's not falling asleep on his keyboard, he's fighting to finish atop the dps meters. His other known aliases are Moodybear and Sleepybear. Although we believe that he gets moody due to lack of sleep, or maybe, he doesn't get enough sleep because he's too moody...whatever, move to America or Canada already. You'll get better ping!!!
Sparty - Dictator? Genius? Tyrant? Passionate leader? Cocksucker? All those terms, and many more, have been used to describe the man known as Sparty. Which is he? Well that depends solely on who you ask. Ask an ex-member who got /gkicked, and he's a cocksucker. Ask one of the many members who have been around for years, and he's a passionate leader. A bona fide "power healer" who has given his all for the guild in more ways than he'd care to admit, Sparty has been leading by example with his performance for many years. Bottom line...he's led a guild that's pushed high-end progression for close to 5 years now, and no matter what you call him or think of him, he's going to keep leading and pushing content for many years to come. That is if he doesn't develop a brain tumor due to people forgetting to use their healthstone. Stay alive or you could kill our leader.
Ziax - A player who was first better known for using the letter "z" instead of "s" whenever he typed something (Yez it'z ztupid, for zome reazon he inzizted on typing like that). However, that soon changed when we realized the skills he brought to the table. From applicant to member to officer to raid leader, it's been nothing short of a meteoric rise for Ziax. As a raid leader, he's as "cool as the other side of the pillow" and spends many hours researching the encounters ahead of time. To quote a member, "ziax is the new rootleaf"...that is a kickazz compliment.
Atmai - Originally part of the now famed "Sunwell package deal" that wasn't really a package deal (since we don't take them), Atmai brought with him a boatload of skill and the experience of being a leader. Soon enough this was noticed, and he replaced the gap left by Oafijev in the officer core when Oaf went to make babies. By that I mean, if you have what is regarded in Death Jesters as a "sand-related" issue, you whisper Atmai...preferably late at night of course. Atmai has also shined in his role as part of the recruitment team here with his knack for finding talent.
Coratina - One of the few reliable prot pallies around, Cora has been a breath fresh air with his contributions to strategies and overall good communication with other members. Generally these attributes are rarely seen from applicants so quickly, but Cora is an exception to that rule. He understands part of being a good tank, is good communication. We always know when Cora is about to say something on vent before he speaks, since there's always some sort of screams of death or orgasms in the background. Dude, wtf are you always watching on TV? Snuff films? You're scaring us.
Galvin - An ex-Rageborn core member, Galvin decided to apply to Death Jesters once Rageborn disbanded. To our surprise, unlike most people who have preceding reputations for being good, Galvin lived up to it by making member quite quickly. His committment to improvement, calm demeanor, and passion for the game were swiftly noticed. Whether we're wiping on a potential guild first kill at 1%, or killing a boss that's on farm, his tone of voice doesn't change. Always posting about the latest game changes and information, Galvin is of the mold we hope more applicants fit.
Essus - Essus (aka DPessus) is a member that's pretty easy to find when we're looking for him. Either he's fighting for 1st on the dps meters, making more money on one of his alts, or criticising almost every decison we make in our strategy channel. Wait a second...this guy is actually quite annoying. Think about it, he has many characteristics that tend to annoy most people...basically he's rich, extremely talented, and opinionated. Why do we keep him around again? That's right, we're stuck with him since his damage output scares away all of our lock apps. Eh, whatever (that's right, I stole your line!).
Modera - Blac...Modera defines what you would call a no nonsense member. If he has an issue with something, you'll know asap as he's not one to shy away from the tough questions. His forthright demeanor and proclivity to approach every raid fully prepared sets an example that we're proud of. Whether it's ptr, a boss on farm, a progression kill, Blac...Modera is always there to give 110%. If he happens to mess up, which is rare, he's the first to admit it and he's likely more mad at himself than anyone is at him.
