What is your preferred raiding spec? Please describe your Talent Point choices in detail. What glyphs do you use and why?
I prefer to raid as Holy. For talents I went standard 31/5/5. For prime glyphs I chose Glyph of Word of Glory and Glyph of Seal of Insight for flat increased healing and Glyph of Divine Favor over Glyph of Holy Shock for my 3rd because and increased up time on divine favor helps more in a "burn" situation rather then a static 5% extra crit. My major glyphs are glyph of beacon in case I have to swap my beacon through a fight, Glyph of Divine Plea for increased mana regen, and Glyph of Divine protection to help reduce my magic damage taken during encounters. My minors are mana reduction costs of kings/might/seal of insight.
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?
If I am tank healing I healing using divine light and casting holy shock whenever it comes up. Also I generally use my 3 holy power for a word of glory. When raid healing I holy radiance to 3 holy power and cast light of dawn to burn the 3 holy power. When rolling CDs, I pop wings and divine favor during burn phases and heavy healing, along with my jaws of defeat trinket while I still have it. I use my guardian the same way as I do my wings or divine favor. For mana regen Ill pop my engineering gloves with arcane torrent and divine plea at a low point in damage during a fight. As for aura mastery, I'll pop it whenever a big hit to the raid is coming, like onslaught on gunship.
What are your primary professions? Are they maxed? Why did you choose these professions?
My paladins professions are Jewel crafting and engineering. Both are maxed out. I chose JC for the overall int upgrade and Engineering for the glove enchant. Combining the use effect on the gloves with divine plea was the main reasoning behind it.
Do you have Ventrilo?
How did you hear about us? Do you have any references within the guild?
I made a post on the guild recruitment forums and Jumpingbear made a post about your guild.
What were your previous guilds and why did you leave? (Be specific):
Currently I have been in <Evade> but this past week our main raid leader along with our main tank decided to quit WoW. The other raid leader said they were not going to try and replace them and that he was done with WoW as well. He said to start tossing apps around if we wanted hard mode progression.
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):
8/8 Dragon Soul and 1/8H
Firelands- 6/7H, 4/7H pre nerf Also achieved "Glory of the Firelands Raider"
Bot/BWD/throne- 13/13N, 4/13H
Full cleared all normal modes
ICC-11/12H Also achieved "Glory of the Icecrown Raider"(10 man)
How did/do you learn about your class mechanics? Do you remain updated on changes?
I use common sites like MMO-Champion or elitest jerks. I try to read up on forum discussions. I also look around to see if some top end holy paladins have written any guides such as Diamondtear from Paragon who wrote their own holy paladin guide.

What is your availability? Are you able to make all raid days and times? (Mon-Thurs, 7:30p-11:30p CST)
Yes, i can make all raid times.
How old are you? Do you consider yourself mature?
I am 20 years old and I would consider myself mature in general but in a raid setting I am a lot more serious because I enjoy progression and killing bosses
Tell us about yourself (job, school, lifestyle, etc):
I am a full time student at a community college and am looking to transfer to a 4 year college after next semester. I also work as a part time lifeguard on the side to have some spare cash while going to school.
What do you expect from us?
From <Play> I hope for a great raiding environment, a solid group of people to push through content with and a group that has the drive to be the best.
Why do we want you?
<Play> wants to recruit me because I know my class, I always come prepared to a raid, and I always strive to better myself as a healer. I enjoy the game and do not have any intention of stopping. Progression is my favorite part about WoW and always will be.
