Marcus began his journey in the World of Warcraft in November 2008, less than two weeks after the release of Wrath of the Lich King. Marcus, along with his brother and several friends, joined <The Phoenix Guard> on US-Jaedenar. In a friends-and-family guild, Marcus reviled in the concept of raiding while enjoying semi-competitive PvP. As a Protection Warrior, Marcus served as a backup tank for the <The Phoenix Guard> and later <Goldshire Gangsters> (US-Korgath).
In November 2013, Marcus took on his first challenge, starting up his own guild from scratch: <Gods Among Legends> (US-Kel’Thuzad). <Gods Among Legends> laid the foundation of Marcus’ ultimate goal of creating a community that valued friendship, fun and comradery. However, the dream was short-lived as the pressures of the guild venturing into hardcore raiding fractured the foundation. Marcus joined several top guilds on US-Sargeras as well as <Revive> on US-Undermine/Stormreaver, a top 100-US guild. After tough progression on 25 man Heroic SoO, Marcus decided that top-ranked raiding was not for him.
After his hardcore progression days were over, Marcus took a long break during the summer of 2014. His close friend, Monopod, paid him a visit to his home to talk about the upcoming expansion, Warlords of Draenor. Monopod, along with Dr. Legend, planted the seed which would become Legends Anonymous: a guild of real life friends and family enjoying the content in a stress free environment. In September 2014, Marcus, Monopod, and Dr. Legend began to recruit the core of the guild prior to the launch of WoD.
Always known for his commanding vocal presence during raids, Marcus is praised as being a steadfast and patient raid leader. Marcus takes pride in his values as well as his penance for hilarious mishaps. One of the most memorable moments for Marcus was his first fall into the Tiger Pits during the Heroic Kargath encounter. A determined, albiet stubborn leader, Marcus leads Legends Anonymous by virtue of the goals and values he set the first day the guild was launched: community and fun.
