What is your preferred raiding spec? Please describe your Talent Point choices in detail. What glyphs do you use and why?
I prefer Fire, but will play arcane if guild needs me to. Also for heroic spine. The talent choices I have chosen are for Heroic progression. Cauterize for example is a MUST in heroic mode for survivability on Ult, and Zon. Another talent that is a MUST is Molten Fury this increases my dps to a target under 35 % hp by 12%!
Mostly all of my other talents are main stream raiding talents that can be found on MMO-Champion. The 4 most important glyphs I have are Molten Armour, Pyroblast, Fireball and Evocation.
Molten Armour- gives me 2% additional Crit, which is MY 3rd best stat after haste.
Pyroblast- Again increases the crit of my pyroblast by 5%, when it procs, it hits harder.
Fireball- Increases my crit by 5%, which overall boosts my dps because this is my bread n butter spell.
Evocation- I have this to sort of help the heals. I gain 40% of my hp back along with my mana, so it helps them a little bit.
Other than that again glyphs are mainstream.
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?
My rotation is: PRE-POT !!!!! Scorch (if no Warlock in raid or on my target), Living Bomb, Fireball spam, Pyroblast on Hot Streak proc, and Combustion after all 3 dots are up and ignite is over 30k.
On a single target fight my above rotation is just that. On an AoE fight the rotation deviates some. If the adds are to be tanked close to the boss that will be my main target to splash off of. I will go through the general rotation until the adds spawn. Once spawned, I will fish for an Impact proc via Blastwave and Flamestrike. Once I have my Impact proc I will make sure Living Bomb is on my main target, get a pryo proc and pop combustion, then spread my dots to the adds via Impact. I will then continue to Impact spread dots until the adds are dead.
Also I use my potion again once the boss hits 35% because this is when Molten Fury kicks in then I continue above.
What are your primary professions? Are they maxed? Why did you choose these professions?
Enchanting and Tailoring. Yes there are maxed. Enchanting for the ring enchant of 40+ int. Tailoring for lightweave.
I am thinking about dropping tailoring for engineering for the hand tinker, would love to discuss with your other mages!
Do you have Ventrilo?
How did you hear about us? Do you have any references within the guild?
I saw your guild on wow progress. No sadly :(.
What were your previous guilds and why did you leave? (Be specific):
Velocity- Nordrassil ( Wasnt progressing through normal content)
Crisis- Destromath ( Switched to 10man)
Big- Destromath ( Was a weekend raiding guild because of alts, so I could not make the weekend raids)
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):
7/7 FL (P.S I know all of the heroic fights, never had a guild that through a group together because of progression in ds)
6/8 Heroic DS ( With several pulls on spine)
How did/do you learn about your class mechanics? Do you remain updated on changes?
When I first started a mage in the beginning of Cata, I went on elitest jerks and MMO champion to help start me in the right direction. Then I started asking some of the top mages for advice, and had the honor of being a "student" under one. I know just check for updates on the patch notes and MMO-Champion. Yes, I remain updated on changes.
I would like to know more about SimCraft. I have been trying to workout the kinks, but it is a little difficult.

What is your availability? Are you able to make all raid days and times? (Mon-Thurs, 7:30p-11:30p CST)
I am available everyday after my classes. ( college student). Yes, I am able to make the raid times. ( They fit perfectly with my schedule)
How old are you? Do you consider yourself mature?
18. Yes. Read below as to why I consider myself mature.
Tell us about yourself (job, school, lifestyle, etc):
I am a college student at UCF (University of Central Florida). I am currently in Air Force ROTC, with plans of commissioning as a 2nd LT in the AF. I play Inter-mural sports. (baseball, football, and soccer), I swim as well!
What do you expect from us?
My goal with wow is to down heroic content while the content is still relatively fresh. I have had horrible luck with guilds. (i.e Switching to 10mans, not progressing, bad raid times). This is really the only thing I "expect".
Why do we want you?
I am a team player. I give a 110% every pull. I ALWAYS except criticism. I strive for excellence in everything I do. (even wow). And I am DRAMA FREE!
