Sorry, "Cy" is taken by me. Let's not add confusion please. Wink

Cyborg, unfortunately your app is very "barebones" compared to all the other apps that it doesn't look very good on you. I'm sure you're interested in the guild but would you like to revise it to show more effort? Please compare with other applications and write more information if possible. I'm saying this to help you before other people start getting upset =P

Also regrettably the process normally requires you to have 2 referrals before you apply to Dreams. I'd hate to have you wait another 30 days to re-apply because of simple misunderstandings. Please look into getting your 2 referrals as soon as possible.

Make sure you review our application guidelines at http://dreams-mabinogi.forumotion.com/t46-application-requirements-and-information thoroughly.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others

Thanks for the reply.
I feel like I am a man of action, so for me this type of guild application is a first. As for the short application well... its much more convincing if someone inside the guild tells you about me than me talking about me.

BUT okay let me start from the beginning...
So the name Cyborg 001 is from an old anime watched ages ago called Cyborg 009. I am not much of a fashionogi. I kept the same character details that I had from when I first made this character. And yes this is my first character that I made since I started playing mabi.

My ultimate goal in mabi is to master all skills. All the ones that i am capable of mastering that is. I feel skills are much better things to master than certain overpowering gears even though I started my own collection of high grade gears. I am usually too cheap to use them.

The things I usually do on mabi includes: runs (of any kind Tm, Sm, Dungeon, Raid and anything else that is interesting), enchanting, hunting, crafting, lots of dye synthing, and collecting (usually material, sometimes gears, almost never fashion).

As for the referrals I see your point. Since the only person actually know is Tairiku getting another would be a bit tough. I have met a few members of dreams from sm or raid of some sort, but they probably don't know me enough to say anything about me. Sooooooo a quick solution to that could be have people add me in game and invite me to something or grill me with question to get to know me Wink ?

Hello:

I barely play anymore, but I have definitely seen Cyborg around. Back when DD was popular, Cyborg would be at every single one. You seem like a quiet person who minds his business, but its those who talk the least whose thoughts are loudest.

Would you say you you're talkative to those who you know you in the game? Have you been known to participate in guild chat?

hey there roxxaz!

I would say that I talk mainly to buddies and guildies. So yea my main chat would be guild chat, that might be the reason why people outside of the guild might not know me. I try to be respectable to anyone i don't know till I get to know them. After that I would have to say I am known to joke around and tease people, but yea I try to not let jokes get out of hand  Rolling Eyes .

Hi Cyborg,

Thank you for adding more information about yourself. This is better

I believe every player in Mabinogi has the goal to master all skills. Even very casual players rank up their skills to eventually complete them all right? Do you happend to have a particular purpose as to why you'd like to master all skills? What kind of "impact" would you like to have after you achieve this goal?

Also, a creative question for you. If you can take home any one item from Mabinogi to real life, what would it be? Why?

So the reason why I want to master all skills is probably not much different from other players. If there is a goal in the game why wouldn't I want to reach it? But sure being overpowering is nice and all more skills I learn and master in the game the more things I would be able to participate in.

In the beginning of my mabi days things were very different. Monster hits hard there were no talent buff, no training potion, skill training seals, no double rainbows, and combat require a fair amount of brain power. The only overpowering skill in those days was windmill which was a double edge sword that drain your hp upon use. So the goal to master all skills available seems like something great and grinding skills for more power seems more bearable.

After talent came out I probably lost a lot of my drive to get more power, but none the less I still pursue my goal that I set myself up from the beginning to master all skill. These days I would say I am a casual skill trainer. I probably train skills in actual combat rather than doing something extra special just to train it. Thus I take the time to enjoy my journey to master all skills instead of doing brain dead grinding sessions for it Very Happy .

As for the creative question, the top one item I would want from mabi in real life would have to be Carasek bag. I mean like looking at practical uses that would totally fit into my life. Who wouldn't want a magical bag that you could stuff almost everything in Wink and carry it with me everywhere. Function always top form for me. Having a fancy weapon from the game is cool and all, BUT there is no use for it outside the game thus it becomes a fashion item.

lol soo just to clarify, you are choosing to complete your goal to master all your skills simply because you want to finish what you started from the past even though you described that things in the game have changed for the worse for you? Why are you pursuing a goal that you are unmotivated to do? If you're unmotivated to do your ultimate goal in Mabinogi then why do you keep playing?

I respect that you are a person that is determined to finish what he started but don't you think it's better to focus your efforts and talents somewhere else? I believe if you're remaining to stay here there must be something else. What makes you feel like your time in Mabinogi is worth it Cyborg?

I think he's stating that he is taking his time to enjoy his journey as apposed to making it feel like a chore and therefor is ranking it as he goes along instead of rushing to finish it or specifically search out things that are only to train his skills.

Hello Cyborg and thank you for your consideration in applying to Dreams. Your app is very to the point but so concise that it does give off an impression of either being shy- perhaps uncomfortable feelings to opening up to strangers or that yes you are simply a person of few words.

Dreams can get quiet - it can be active and members sometimes can be very goal orientated/off training things solo in a cave till rank 1 is achieved. How do you feel you would fit in with this environment?

How do you feel about casual banter, making fun/joking around and sometimes sexual conversations? Do these make you uncomfortable and how would you tolerate that atmosphere in a guild chat?

I do recall you from raids and shadow missions but even then I would have to say that I don't know or haven't had any long talks with you but you cooperate and work well from what I have witnessed.

What do you feel you have to offer to your friends or potential guildmates as far as who you are as a person and your own strengths?

Lastly for now you are over 11k+ total- what have been some of your most memorable experiences and perhaps regrettable moments in Mabi this far?

Thank you for your time and good luck.

Confirming my referral for Cyborg, he is a dear old friend of mine and a veteran mabinogi player. Personally, I think he'd make an exceptional addition to the guild as he is a hardworking, quirky, and mild mannered individual whose proven time and time again to be: helpful, exceptionally skilled, as well as friendly in the time I've known him.

First to answer Cyril, I feel that things in mabi have changed since I started playing. That doesn't mean that they have turned for the worst. It is that I have changed with the times too. As things get easier I tend to slow down and enjoy things a bit more. So yes its just like what Keo said I am currently enjoying my journey to the goal more than the goal itself.

Keo as you noticed I am a little shy. It would just take me a bit longer for me to open up to people. As for the extra special training in the caves, don't get me wrong I totally support anyone who has that kind of dedication to do that. For me it would probably depend on the skill. If it fits nicely into my combat style I might rank it a bit faster than if it wasn't compatible with me. But no matter what skills that needs training I would still take my SWEET time ranking them Smile .

As for jokes, yes I like jokes. Jokes are fun to the extent where no one gets hurt. BUT if things start to get weird... I might just quietly fade away into the background.

For what I can offer the guild, I would have to say knowledge. Getting to that 11k Tlvl I would have to say I learned quite a few things. Sharing that knowledge between friends and guilds would just improve my mabi environment.

For my memorable experiences, those would be the completing the goals that I have set for myself like:
-not rebirthing till I reach 50 to all the way up to 160ish current level
-soloing some of the toughest dungeons/SM/Raids/Alban
-having things survive my enchanting/stone upgrading process
-getting fancy gears that that is not easy to get
-having things that I can say is made by me

There is probably only two things that I regret so far in mabi. First would be making friends with people just to find out that they are horrible people.  The other would be breaking things that I probably shouldn't have broken (merlins knuckle from step 5 to 6 just before they gave out protection stones).

Hi Cyborg,

Thank you for replying,

Your approach to a goal usually determines how strongly you feel about it. I don't think you are a lazy or hopeless person so I believe that without realizing it, you actually have found a different goal for yourself.

If your goal is to "master all skills" then it would not make sense to delay yourself from training skills. From what you said, a more fitting description of your goal seems to be to "enjoy your moments in Mabinogi". In fact, I think you might even be afraid to master all your skills nowadays because you will then have less of these moments in Mabinogi. This is why you're hesitant in training your skills. Right? lol

I think that's an interesting goal Cyborg. Not many people admit but you are not alone in this. The majority of players have changed their focus from "becoming the strongest" to "enjoying our moments together in Mabinogi". There's nothing wrong with that goal at all! =P

Cyborg, another question. You mentioned that your reason for joining Dreams is to "play with old buddies". But you can still play with them outside the guild or maybe even ask them to leave the guild. Why do you think it's better to join Dreams in particular to be with your old buddies? Why do you think they stay in Dreams? lol. Is it for the same reasons you'd like to join Dreams? Do you believe there is something in Dreams that is worth your time and effort or could Dreams have been any other guild your buddies are currently on?

Cyril I feel your question is a bit weird. Yes part of my reason to join the guild is to play with people I know inside of the guild, the other part would have to be make new friends in the guild. Your question to me is: why join the guild if you don't need to be in the same guild as your buddy to play together. The truth is that you are correct, joining Dreams is of no importance to me if I can still play with the buddies inside the guild. The guild to me is a place where people who can trust each other hang out, so yes it doesn't have to be Dreams. Nothing have to be Dreams for me, BUT because they are in Dreams I would like to join.

Right? lol"

I don't believe it to be entirely fair to make a personal interpretation of ones' goals.-  If his goals are to master all his skills- but he is not in a hurry to do it, then I believe it means exactly as he says.  The end goal is to master the skills but he isn't in a hurry to do it and get it over with and be left with nothing to do- I believe rushing to train the skills then begins to take the enjoyment out of the game and that is something I believe he is trying to prevent or balance- based on the statements he has made.

Cyborg I appreciate that you have such an honest outlook of the company you want to keep, as apposed to the reputation of where your company belongs to.  I believe friendship and trust are very important qualities to any type of relationship especially one such as a guild environment in a game.

"The truth is that you are correct, joining Dreams is of no importance to me if I can still play with the buddies inside the guild. The guild to me is a place where people who can trust each other hang out, so yes it doesn't have to be Dreams. Nothing have to be Dreams for me, BUT because they are in Dreams I would like to join."

To me that statement says that regardless of the name above someones head you hold your friends close and make them the object of what is important to you.  That is an admirable quality to have though if you are accepted I would hope that you make bonds enough with other members in the guild that you would feel like Dreams would be of an importance to you along with your friends inside of it as we wear our guild title with a lot of pride of who we are but of our trust and friendships within the guild overall as well.

haha Keo I know what I said is "thought-provking" but let Cyborg think about it and give his own opinion!

Sorry if my last question has been weird Cyborg. Keo has found your answer interesting though so you should thank me right? lol. =P

Cyborg is it okay if I add you in game so I can get to talk to you more? I'm not sure your usual schedule though, unfortunately for the next few days I'll be a night owl. So if you're on in the morning or afternoon, I may not see you.
