ACCEPTED - Zealin (Resto Shammy)

Post by Antidotum » Fri Mar 21, 2014 8:22 pm

Armory Link: ... lin/simple

All Max-Level Characters:
Antidotum - mannoroth
Healjack - Mannoroth
... all toons on Mannoroth...
Manno used to be home!

Where did you hear about Riot?
Jake.. you know him as.. Hell I don't know hes the lock that kicks ass in raid!!!!!!
And ZP is my favorite tree

Do you know anyone in Riot who can vouch for you? If yes, who are they and how do you know them?
Yup,.. I think I did well for someone of 555 iLVL. Illy and ZP vouch for me.

Tell us why Riot should be interested in you. What benefit can you bring to the guild?
Because I"m a resto shammy that is a smart player. I also understand the value of what it means to benefit the raid first, and worry about myself secondary. I taught Illy that lesson years ago too.

How long have you played this game?
Since 2004... Not many can say that and I'm proud!

What other guilds have you been in? Why did you leave?
I was Raid leader/Guild leader of Oath on Mannoroth.. Last tier we had more than 3 top 200 in the us kills. I know how to raid and lead. I don't have time to lead anymore, but I learned such valuable experience. I didn't leave, I just stopped leading and the guild fell apart!!! I'm a good player and a better leader. If I want to I can be as good as you need me to be...
Describe your endgame raiding experience. Include the current and previous box release, if possible.
I"ve only killed 2 HM bosses with you guys this last thursday!
Last tier... i was 5/12 in 10 man heroic.

Describe your specs. What is your preferred spec? Do you have a secondary spec? If so, what is your gear and experience like for the secondary spec?
I have a ele spec and can play it well.. but its badly under geared.. about 530ish iLVL.

Describe what skill/spell rotation you use in your primary spec. If a rotation is not appropriate, what is your priority list?
For example on heroic Thok I drop healing rain, rip tide, and healing stream totem/healing tide totem/spirit link and acendece.

We expect you to have current and appropriate gems, enchants and reforges when you apply. If you do not have those when we review your application and your character, it will reflect poorly on you. Do you understand?
I completely understand, and yes I will be prepared with gemming/enchants/reforges.

What websites do you use to keep current on your class?
Irobot 99% of time because of a crit build I like to use. ... nts-glyphs

Do you research boss fights before your guild attempts them? What websites do you use to become familiar with new boss strategies?
Yes... prior to this guild I was the GL/RL so yeah I'm used to coming prepared!!!

We raid 25-man endgame content from 8 PM to 12 AM EST three nights per week: Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Are you able to make these days and times?
yes, I'll be there all 3 nights.

Describe any prior commitments that could change your raiding availability.
LIFE - I'll let someone know in advance.

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. Will this be a problem for you?
Not a problem.

List your professions and any relevant special/epic/rare recipes you have.
JC/BS... IDK what rare/'epic recipes i have

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.
Wow UI and healing add on called QuickHeal. Will provide in a moment.

Post link(s) displaying your recent raid performance -- a screenshot of Recount/Skada with skill breakdowns showing or a World of Logs parse.
Ask ZP.. she can vouch for my last raid! ... alingDone/
Here is one of the logs.

Have you raided with any other characters as your main during the current content release? If so, why did you switch?
prior to my shammy I raided as a feral druid as a tank... stopped raiding on the druid last tier

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 was raid leader for several years and took a break from it. one of the things I asked of guildiies was take self-responsibility and to prioritize any talents that benefit the raid first.

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 a problem. I'm a big team player.

How old are you
46 years old

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 I do - definitely no dial up and a blown 86 with 256mb of ram! Yes, I have a reliable PC and connection.

Do you have a Authenticator attached to your account? If not, please let us know if you would have trouble obtaining one.

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?
Do you own a working Microphone?

PS sorry about my initial app. I Was trying to be humorous, but I understand the importance of this process as part of committing to the guild.
