Cata: The time I have played in cata I have concentrated so hard on pvp in this expansion that i havent raided at all really seeing as i was sitting exams etc up to now, but after gaining gladiator title I wana go back to doing some pve!
Do you have any alts that you have raid experience with? Armory link(s):
What addons do you use?
DBM. Omen and tidyplates whilst raiding
Incase you have an offspec - Do you have experience/gear for raiding with it?
My offspec is a pvp sub spec, although willing to change to a secondary pve spec on raid nights
Describe you key bindings, rotations/priority and macros for your mainspec and offspec respectively:
There isn't a single ability on my actionbars that isn't bound to either my keyboard or mouse, i use both shift and ctrl modifiers also. My rotation priority is Slice n Dice, Rupture up at all times with eviscerate used whilst both are active and not needing refreshing with revealing strike being used for both rupture and evis. Tricks of the trade being used on cd on a predetermined DPS after the initial pull where it is used on the tank. Adrenaline rush and killing spree are also used as often as possible whlst not energy capped and knowing i wont have to leave the boss in these time frames.
For DPS classes/specs - What is your average DPS in a typical 10/25-man raid boss fight. Linking a screenshot showing 5 minutes on the raider's target dummy (or until you run out of mana) is a big plus!
I average around 23k dps at the moment only because I lack alot of gear at the moment mainset is still cataclysmic pvp set whilst offset is either lfr gear or last patch valor gear and the current valor neck and wrist.
Earlier guild(s). Why did you leave or get kicked?: Absolutely Wanted (we were no.1 progress in ulduar) was disbanded. From the Ashes II - I transferred to pvp with some friends
Can you manage to attend raids on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 19:00-23:00 on a regular basis?
Do you follow instructions during raids and can you handle criticism from the leaders?
I am a very aware player who is happy to do as told
Do you have the habit of reading up on all new encounters? Do you stay up to date with class changes?
Yes on both these accounts.
Are you able to supply yourself with sufficient amounts for flasks, potions and power food for each raid?
reading power food made me hungry irl hehe but yea I can sort all this out
Have you got ventrilo and a working microphone? Do you have an easy time communicating during raids?
yes I do, gl trying to shut me up if I get accepted :p
Is there anything that can force you to go AFK during raids?
A naked chick crawling into my bed? But seriously not unless something serious happened IRL
On a scale from 1-10, how stable is your internet connection?
9-10 usually chilling around 25-35 ms
Tell us a little about yourself (optional):
Essex born and raised, enjoy many sports and I'm a propper little social bean who strives to do well in anything I do. I really enjoy the social aspect of WoW and having a laugh whilst either doing arenas or progressing in pve.
Do you know anyone in the guild?
I used to raid wit Jay - warlock
Tell us briefly, using your own words - Why do you like to raid and why should we consider your application over others?
Ok so i know you will be taking a bit of a stab in the dark with me if i get accepted as my pve gear as it stands right now isn't anything special, but in me you will gain a competant player who listens well and has good situation awareness as well as experience. And a fun, social member who enjoys raiding.
thanks for taking the time to read my app! <3
