What is your preferred raiding spec? Please describe your Talent Point choices in detail. What glyphs do you use and why?
Holy - I put points in everything relevant to PvE Healing and skipped on everything irrelevant to it. I also put a point into Enlightened Judgements as to reduce the chance of a 8 second loss of 30% mana regen and I also put a point into Blessed Life to receive more Holy Power.
- I chose Glyph of Divine Favor because I would pop that during damage intense phases and well I want it to last as long as possible
- I chose Glyph of Seal of Insight because well hey who wouldn't want +5% healing.
- I chose Glyph of Word of Glory because it's the next most beneficial glyph
(I didn't get Glyph of Holy Shock because in the new raids I find myself using WoG a lot more and sometimes I don't even waste a GCD on holy shock as WoG gives holy power)
- I use Glyph of Light of Dawn because I rather the lowest health targets get up to prevent their death than more people get equal healing, also to not waste any healing at full hp players
- I use Glyph of Divinity because if there's a lot of damage going out chances are i'll be low mana and if I use Lay on Hands not only will it save a life but also give me 1/10th of my mana.
- I use Glyph of Divine Plea because I pretty much use it on cooldown(with adjusting my timing for certain mechanics i.e yorshaj mana void)
They're all there basically for rebuffing someone who get's battle rezzed and not spending unnecessary mana on it.
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?
I use all my cool downs when i'm tanking healing, according to damage currently being taken of course. I usually pop Avenging Wrath first as it has the shortest CD and if I need more i'd pop Divine Favor, and i'f the tank was really getting hit hard i'd pop Guardian of Ancient Kings. (Lay on Hands as a last resort)
As for raid healing i'll usually try to spread my Avenging Wrath and Divine Favor out for when people are stacked so I can get the most out of Holy Radiance and that's another reason why I use my Light of Dawn Glyph so that if I only hit 4 or less people with it less healing is wasted.
What are your primary professions? Are they maxed? Why did you choose these professions?
Blacksmithing - I chose it because I wanted to be able to craft all the new patterns/ect and also for the extra gem sockets.
Mining - Just to go along with BS and for farming so I never run out of gold.
Do you have Ventrilo?
How did you hear about us? Do you have any references within the guild?
What were your previous guilds and why did you leave? (Be specific):
About 3 different guilds starting from 4.0
I left the first one (about half the team followed me) because we weren't progressing at all and formed a new guild. we got 12/12(prenerf reg) in about a week after forming(was 7/12 in former guild stuck at council because people liked to derp on debuffs) The new guild fell apart after we had attendance issues and I joined my current guild Inception. They're a decent group of people but just don't have the motivation to progress at a competitive level (i.e we wipe 5 times on a heroic and people cry and we just clear it on normal).
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):
t11 12/12reg pre-nerf
t12 6/7h post-nerf
I only started raiding in Cataclysm but i've picked up quickly and the only reason I didn't get more bosses down is well the lack of opportunity on my realm.
How did/do you learn about your class mechanics? Do you remain updated on changes?
I originally player Prot but I switch to Holy to join my first guild that I mentioned before and there the raid leader told me the basics of Holy and directed me to EJ to learn more, I check in there every week or so to see if there are any updates.

What my luck, that site is down to spread awareness for the SOPA and PIPA bills, but I hope it's ok if I just use photobucket.
http://s279.photobucket.com/albums/kk133/AndrewP94/?action=view¤t=WoWScrnShot_092411_170820.jpg I know it's not beautiful or flashy but it's what I use and works for me
I use healbot so I have all my healing spells bound to keyboard+mouse combinations, I have my major cooldowns in 1,4, and 5. I have other important cooldowns off to the side i.e arcane torrent and divine plea
I have divine shield bound to a button not showing on the screen shot
Aura mastery is current bound to my extra mouse button
I have BoP bound to healbot as well.
This is from about a month ago as i'm not at my home computer and can't get on to take a current picture, I already had this one on photobucket.
What is your availability? Are you able to make all raid days and times? (Mon-Thurs, 7:30p-11:30p CST)
I available to meet your raid schedule.
How old are you? Do you consider yourself mature?
17, and i'm sure you're thinkink "We don't want this kid, he's gonna come in here and cause drama and what not" but no that's not me. I'm here to *competitively* progress.
Tell us about yourself (job, school, lifestyle, etc):
I'm a senior in High school and I work in construction on Saturdays to have some spending money. I live a very laid back lifestyle, if i'm not at school or working i'm at home on my computer.
What do you expect from us?
A very competitive raid environment centered on progression.
Why do we want you?
I know exactly how to play my class and I rarely make mistakes, when I do I admit to them and either say they won't happen again if it was a fluke on my part or ask what I need to do differently if I don't know.
For the race selection I chose Dreani because Blood Elf wasn't an option.
My logs may not represent my full as I don't try on regulars but any heroic morchok/yorshaj attempt should represent my skill.
