Please post a link to a recent WoL or equivalent of current raid content. If you do not provide parses, your application will be rejected.
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)

8/8 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.

Please post a picture of your User Interface using the following website, 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 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!

Additional information:

Please save and post a result from both of the following websites: Ping yourself from the Chicago Data Center for both.
What is your Real ID contact information?


So I see some of your bindings/hotkeys are macros. What is the macro for 6 and F1.

Also are any other bindings not shown(Such as I see blink without a binding, is it really not bound to a key?)
College student. Shouldn't you be out partying? =p
don't hate rak, fucking scumbag
Hey mr. virgin.

(i was also raiding during college, i just like giving people shit for it.)
lol i know i know. ahhhh Good Ol Mr. Virgin.
Greater mastery is a better enchant for your gloves than haste.

Am I reading your GUI right that you don't have block, blastwave, blink, counterspell or dragons breath bound or am I missing something? I hope I'm missing something.

Tailoring provides the highest dps of any professions followed next by blacksmithing. Engineering is really good on burst fights (but that really only helps for spine/dw and only if you're running arcane, no such thing as on demand burst with a rng spec)

Have you used rawr at all? I noticed you mentioned that you were attempting to use SIMC more. It's a great tool to learn to use to get your stat weights but personally I like rawr to help you until you get close to BiS gear, it's very good at what it does.

I ran your char through rawr and was able to get another 800 dps just from some simple reforges, you should look into it, fairly easy to learn and very powerful.

I went through your parses and they seem really low. Fire is definitely a very RNG spec but your last 4 parses on H Ultraxion, your highest finish was 34.5k and that's not even in the 20th percentile.

Granted I don't know your strats, how many fades you had to do and the such but I'm concerned there. If I had more time I could go through your logs on those fights in more depth.
