Where did you hear about Riot?
I was talking about the good ol\' days with some current members.

Do you know anyone in Riot who can vouch for you? If yes, who are they and how do you know them?
Uh... Azziz, ZP!, Blindeye, there is a couple more people willing to most likely but yeah.

Tell us why Riot should be interested in you. What benefit can you bring to the guild?
I bring knowledge of my class that most people would not go so far as to try to learn on their own. I also bring the know how of heroic bosses this guild has not yet attempted.

How long have you played this game?
Since it original release. I started with rogue and stopped during Ulduar where I picked up my shaman.

What other guilds have you been in? Why did you leave?
Wrath of Astranaar- The guild no longer raids.

Months behind- I was not given raid spots.

Rad Bromance- I was only there to help a friend get his Shadowmourne.

Describe your endgame raiding experience. Include the current and previous box release, if possible.
Vanilla- N/A


WoTLK- most of Ulduar, Toc 25m and only ToGC on 10m. In ICC 12/12 normal and 11/12 heroic, and in RS killed all in normal and heroic.

Cataclysm. In normal I have killed everything but Al\'Aki and in heroic I have fully cleared Blackwing Decent and 1/4 heroic in BoT.

Describe your specs. What is your preferred spec? Do you have a secondary spec? If so, what are your gear and experience like with the secondary spec?
I am currently using a rather cookie cutter restoration spec with 2/7/32. My secondary spec is also restoration but certain heroic fights.

Describe what skill/spell rotation you use in your primary spec. If a rotation is not appropriate, what is your priority list?
As it stands right now in Cataclysm depending on the raid comp it can go many ways.

If the tank healers are brain dead and think their numbers on recount matter more then healing the tanks then I\'d use healing surge for a bomb heal and have a constant stream of healing wave going out with keeping riptide on CD, while also tossing the occasional unleash elements for a boosted heal.

However if raid healing is light depending on if the raid in more clumped together or not; I might either use healing rain or chain heal with again keeping riptide on CD.

What websites do you use to keep current on your class?
lifeingroup5, totemtalk, and my own knowledge I am a min/maxer I use charts and run numbers in order to find the best combinations for my shaman. I am also in the works of making my own website for Restoration shaman.

Do you research boss fights before your guild attempts them? What websites do you use to become familiar with new boss strategies?
Yes, I use Tankspot.

We raid 25-man endgame content three nights per week: 8 PM - 12 AM Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, all times Eastern U.S. Are you able to make these days and times?

Describe any prior commitments that could change your raiding availability.
None, however I am looking for a job so that might come into play on a later date.

Riot requires that you always bring all necessary consumables for our 25-man raids. This includes flasks/food/potions/etc., and covers all fights -- easymode and progression, normal mode and heroic. Would this be a problem for you?

List your professions and any special epic/rare recipes you have.
I am a Jewelcrafter and a Blacksmith.

Post a link with a screenshot of your raid UI. If that is not possible, or if you'd simply like to elaborate on your screenshot, describe what you use for class-specific functions (cooldown timers, raid (de)buffs, damage/healing tracking, etc.) and why.

Post link(s) displaying your recent raid performance. WWS, Recount log, World of Logs... something that gives us a clue what you can do. ... boss=45991

Have you raided with any other characters as your main during the current content release? If so, why did you switch?
No, as it stands I have only ever raided on my shaman during Cataclysm.

We define ourselves as a "hard casual" guild. That means we are committed to doing the best we can in 25-mans for the 3 nights (12 hours) we raid per week, no more, no less. We do not push a fourth night for progression. We do not require guild members to do off-night 10-mans, although many of our members choose to do this in their spare time. Is this acceptable to you?

Do you have any guild, raid, or class leadership experience? If so, describe it.
Yes, I have held officer status in a previous guild in which I was required to raid lead.

We seek team players, people who want to do right by the raid and the guild. Me-firsters and loot whores are not desirable. We also seek coverage in all classes such that we'll always have enough to raid, which means you might have to sit on occasion. Do you have any concerns regarding this? (If yes, elaborate. And be honest here, as temper tantrums will not be tolerated once you're in the guild.)
Not at all.

Do you have a reliable computer and a stable internet connection? (Describe any known issues impacting game performance, including a shared internet connection, old computer, etc.)
Yes, however I will sometimes have moments where my computer will lag hard for a short period of time. If it starts to become unmanageable you will be the first to know.

Do you have a Blizzard authenticator? If No, please let us know if you would have trouble obtaining one.
No, but its no issue getting one.

Do you have Ventrilo installed and ready?

Do you own a working Microphone?
