DEFERRED - Application: Extrodinaire (Shaman)

Where did you hear about Riot?

I played with several of you that were formally in DI.

Do you know anyone in Riot who can vouch for you? If yes, who are they and how do you know them?

Shibumi, Valerious


Tell us why Riot should be interested in you. What benefit can you bring to the guild?

Well you have invited me several times to help fill in for some of your raids in DS. I appreciated the invites. I wanted to join, but really couldn't do Thursdays at the time, which basically meant that I could only do 1 raid night a week for you, but my schedule has changed and now i'm free on Thursdays again.

How long have you played this game?

I've been playing since BC

What other guilds have you been in? Why did you leave?

I'm currently in Deus Invitus, but unfortunately we have definitely hit a huge snag and it looks like we are officially done. We are having problems trying to fill for 10 mans.

Describe your endgame raiding experience. Include the current and previous box release, if possible.

Well, I would like to thank you for my Savior of Azeroth title. You guys helped me earn that. I'm all about the Endgame content.

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'm Enhancement and always have been. I've tried healing, but was definitely lousy at it.

Describe what skill/spell rotation you use in your primary spec. If a rotation is not appropriate, what is your priority list?

I follow the ElitestJerks standards for Enhancement Shaman DPS.

What websites do you use to keep current on your class?

worldoflogs, ej, mmo-champion forums

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

absolutely. i primarily watch a lot of youtube videos to see the mechanics of boss fights

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?

I can do Weds & Thurs. Sundays unfortunately, I have to work late night. I would have to log by 9pm.

Describe any prior commitments that could change your raiding availability.

If there is a holiday happening, chances are I'll be working. You will not see me logged in for those days. I'm very professional in letting people ahead of time know that I won't be on.

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?

Nope.

List your professions and any relevant special epic/rare recipes you have.

Leather Worker and Jewel Crafter

Post a link with a screenshot of your UI in a raid environment or, at the very least, of your UI in combat. Describe what you use for class-specific functions (cooldown timers, raid (de)buffs, damage/healing tracking, etc.) and why.

I'll add this in later. I'm not on my computer that I play WoW with right now.

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

Well i do LFR with you all last week. I don't know if you were watching my meters. I'm probably a little below your other enhancement shammies.

Have you raided with any other characters as your main during the current content release? If so, why did you switch?

Nope. My shaman is my main toon.

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?

Yes.

Do you have any guild, raid, or class leadership experience? If so, describe it.

Yes. I've been leader for a couple PUGs a few times.

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.)

Nope, I have no problems with this.

How old are you

33

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, quad-core PC. I can't remember what graphics card I have. I am getting about 70-100 FPS.

Do you have a Blizzard authenticator? If not, please let us know if you would have trouble obtaining one.

Of course. I've seen too many people get hacked to know better.

We use Mumble (NOT Ventrilo) for voice chat during raids and as such it is required that you be able to install and run it. You must, at the very least, be able to hear raid leaders during raids and, depending on your role, you may need to be able to speak. Do you understand?

Yes. I have Mumble already installed.

Do you own a working Microphone?

Yes.

Could you please clarify with regard to your Sunday availability. Are you saying you have to leave at 9? Or that you won't be able to join the raid until 9? (All times Eastern US, of course.) Edit: Also, is this schedule conflict likely to be permanent?

The must-be-able-to-raid-all-12-hours rule is a pretty hard and fast one. We appreciate all the times you've helped us in the past and look forward to any times like that in the future; but, we can't really budge on this one.

Believe me, we are at least as sorry about that as you might be and perhaps more.

I totally understand. Thank you all for taking the time to review my app. If my schedule changes, I'll let you guys know. Best of Luck with MoP.
