For a bit of background, I was previously a member of ZoS back in 2014 (here is a link to my original application). After a few years of inactivity, I have recently picked up GW2 again and have been playing quite actively. While my "main" remains the same and I have kept the same account name, I have levelled a Guardian to 80 since coming back (name: Haswelien), which I have been playing mostly since returning.
Looking forward to (hopefully) re-joining ZoS as I remember it was an awesome community!

A little about yourself: I've been an on and off MMO gamer for years (since the original vanilla WoW release) and played GW2 back around the time when the game was launched. I also play several other games with my real life friends (lots of FPS and MOBA, usually), which is the main reason I stopped playing GW2. Recently, I've picked GW2 back up and realized how much I miss the game and how great it is. After leveling my new guardian up to 80 and still loving it, I realized that I am not going to stop playing any time soon and so I thought I would try to re-join ZoS because I miss the community aspect. Thank you for your consideration!
