What is your preferred raiding spec? Please describe your Talent Point choices in detail. What glyphs do you use and why?
I prefer raiding as Moonkin but am willing to play any druid spec. My current Moonkin spec is http://www.wowhead.com/talent#0IfMdRGRkozZRcu:RaZmRVzcm. I have stopped putting points in lunar shower since the patch it seems like this will net a dsp increase while slightly lowering our damage while moving dps. It seems to be allowing us to remain in solar and lunar eclipse longer for aoe phases though. The decision for those points is fluid atm and I am constantly researching which one ends up becomoing the top dps. My glyph choices are for primes are insect swarm and moonfire with the third glyph switching between starsurge, wrath and and starfire depending on the encounter with starsurge being the typical glyph of choice. My majors are rebirth and starfall withthe third being a floater also fight dependant.
Please describe your rotation/priority list in detail. Tanks: What is your rotation for maximum threat? When do you consider using your cool downs? Healers: What abilities do you use when you're tank healing? Raid healing? When do you use your cool downs?
Moonkin Rotation: Start each fight by pre-potting followed up by at the appropriate time on the pull timer precasting starfire to get eclipse moving in the right direction then I cast starsurge and apply insect swarm and moonfire. ONce my dots are up I spam Starfire until I am approx 85 energy from an eclipse proc then as soon as the cast finishes from the starfire cast at 85 power I start my wrath burn phase. With the change to the dot mechanic it appears to be better to refresh dots just before they fall off always refreshing dots using insect swarm first then sunfire/moonfire. Always making sure to refresh the dots before leaving the eclipse phase. I also use starsurge on cooldown and starfall upon entering lunar ecclipse or while in lunar ecclipse. If the fight requires it I will also throw thorns on the tank on cooldown. I use moonfire/starfire while moving along with casting wild mushrooms/exploding them while moving.
What are your primary professions? Are they maxed? Why did you choose these professions?
I am an engineer/alchemist. I am maxed leveled on both of them. I choose engineering for the movement ebenfits along with the glvoes tinker and the amazing goggles during tier 11
Do you have Ventrilo?
How did you hear about us? Do you have any references within the guild?
Two of my friends from raiding in WOTLK are current applicants to your guild. We raided through heroic lk together. Knoxe your current hunter app and falled a paladin app.
What were your previous guilds and why did you leave? (Be specific):
PK - This was a sponsored guild that was forced to carry a mage that didn't understand competitive raiding because he was the sponsor. Once we realized we couldn't get the progression we wanted with him we split to form slash bite.
Slash Bite - guild imploded after the 5 officers decided it was time to take a break from WoW and quit the game.
Dark Bane - Guild imploded after the main tank, guild leader, raid leader and secondary raid leader all decided to step down on the same day
Obsolete - Another guild that imploded after killing heroic LK. Everyone was burned out and multiple people quit the game, me among them.
Endow - I joined Endow to be a "casual" raider, and have since realized that I cannot handle the truely casual raiding scene. I cannot handle holding people's hands trough content bc they don't understand the concept of not standing in fire not standing in traps, healing a shard tanker etc etc etc. That coupled with the fact that all of my friends have left the guild/server I no longer have the ties here that I had when I came back to the game.
What is your current and previous raid experience? Please include prior characters, and be specific (ex. 15/15 Naxx, Sarth +3, ICC25 11/12 HM):
Current expierience is 4/13 H T11 content and 5/7 T12. I have raided 4/7 on my mage and 5/7 on my resto druid.
ICC 25 12/12HM
ICC 10 11/12HM
On my shaman I was abot world 75 I think for the ICC 25 drake (4/21/2011).
I raided mostly enchancment during WOTLK and held 3 world number 1 parses through ICC progression for enhancement, I had 1 number 1 parse during 10 man icc heroic on my demonology lock, and 1 number one parse on icc10 on my enhancment shamn (Blood Queen so it doesn't really count got bit first lol)
How did/do you learn about your class mechanics? Do you remain updated on changes?
To learn my class and mechanics I spent hours on test dummies perfecting my keybindings and priority system while also reading forums such as MMO-champion.com, themoonkinrepository.com, Elitistjerks.com and constantly simming and resimming my gear with simulationcraft.
Please post a picture of your User Interface using the following website, www.imgur.com with all relevant keybindings shown. If your UI does not convey all of your important keybindings, elaborate Please list your major mods (DBM, Big Wigs, etc).
What is your availability? Are you able to make all raid days and times? (Mon-Thurs, 7:30p-11:30p CST)
I forsee no issues making all raids with the exception of a family vacation in August that will be one week around mid august dates are still unsure.
How old are you? Do you consider yourself mature?
I am 28 and being a veteran I consider myself very mature.
Tell us about yourself (job, school, lifestyle, etc):
I am out of the army after getting a medical discharge for injuries sustained during my time on active duty. I never deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan but have had plenty of friends who have and wish I could have myself. I am currently going to school for Computer Hardware Engineering and living in south florida.
What do you expect from us?
I expect a raid that focuses on progression and is always striving to make themselves the best they can possibly be for their class/spec. I strive to be the absolute best at whatever I play and plan/hope to rank in world of logs every night while following my assignments and doing my job properly and not inflating my dps.
Why do we want you?
You want a raider that you know will be reliable and always strive for excellence. You want raiders to come prepared to raid with the proper attitude that will not reflect poorly on the guild.
Do you have a Blizzard Authenticator? If answered no, will you be willing to get one if accepted to the guild?
Yes I have an authenticator
AFter talking to JumpingBear I decided to redo my app as a Moonkin as the guild currently has a much higher need for a moonkin and I enjoy playing the class/spec just as much as the mage. Currently I am going to have to relog into the druid to actually reforge/regem/respec all the gear but the gear is pretty much the same between the 2 specs atm as resto/moonkin was my off off spec until very recently.
