APPROVED - Copexs (Resto Shaman)

All Max-Level Characters:
Shaman

Where did you hear about Riot?
Friend, Xcirus.

Do you know anyone in Riot who can vouch for you? If yes, who are they and how do you know them?
Xcirus, raided together in previous guild.

Tell us why Riot should be interested in you. What benefit can you bring to the guild?
I've been playing since Vanilla and have been a healer pretty much my entire WoW career. I've always only cared about seeing bosses downed and gear has never been a huge factor for me, I like the fun, coordination, and teamwork required for end game and that's what I enjoy doing. I'm a down to earth, fun and reliable player. I bring experience, and a fun positive attitude.

How long have you played this game?
I started mid Vanilla.

What other guilds have you been in? Why did you leave?
I have been through several different guilds each expansion, but mostly with the same players. People leave, old people come back, different guilds but mostly the same players. My current guild was a recent merge, we didn't have the people to do mythic, so people left and we merged to do so. However, I'm unable to make their current raid schedule.

Describe your endgame raiding experience. Include the current and previous box release, if possible.
Raided every expansion so far, MOP all the way until the end and WOD until people left the guild. My guild was mostly just a normal casual raiding guild.

Describe your specs. What is your preferred spec? Describe what skill/spell rotation you use in your primary spec. If a rotation is not appropriate, what is your priority list?
Resto, is my main, and I prefer resto as I've never really enjoyed doing DPS. As with all healing, it's situational, depending on the comp and boss, talents will be adjusted and priorities prioritized depending on my healing role.

Do you have a secondary spec? If so, what is your gear and experience like for the secondary spec?
Elemental, basic dungeon/questing experience.

We expect you to have current and appropriate gems and enchants 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?
Yes.

What websites do you use to keep current on your class?
I keep up to date on Icy Veins for stat priority, and mechanics changes, as well as Pawn for optimizing my gear.

Do you research boss fights before your guild attempts them? What websites do you use to become familiar with new boss strategies?
Yes. I'll read the boss encounter and mechanics within the game as well as Fat boss or whoever else I can find depending on how things are explained. (Exactly)

We raid 20-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.

Describe any prior commitments that could change your raiding availability.
Only an emergency with my wife/child.

Riot requires that you always bring all necessary consumables for our 20-man raids. This includes flasks/food/potions/etc., and covers all fights -- easymode, heroic and mythic progression. Will this be a problem for you?
No.

List your professions and any relevant special/epic/rare recipes you have.
N/A on the Shaman.

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.
Asides from the usual (DBM, LUI, Healbot), I use Weak Auras to manager and track my cooldowns/buffs for my rotations, and healing output.

Post link(s) displaying your recent raid performance -- a screenshot of Recount/Skada with skill breakdowns showing or parses.
I haven't raided since before the holidays and currently don't have any data to show here.

Have you raided with any other characters as your main during the current content release? If so, why did you switch?
No.

We define ourselves as a "hard casual" guild. That means we are committed to doing the best we can in 20-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 or alt runs, 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.
Not on my Shaman.

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.)
No problem whatsoever.

How old are you
30

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 and Yes

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

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.
