DEFERRED: Grumpý (Guardian Druid)

Post by Grumpy » Tue Jan 31, 2017 2:09 am


All Max-Level Characters:
Druid, Warlock, Priest, Mage, Shaman, Paladin

Where did you hear about Riot?
Sargeras Forums

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

Tell us why Riot should be interested in you. What benefit can you bring to the guild?
#DruidPower .. but really, I have maxed bear artifact, owl artifact up to 35 traits.. Also..
- I listen.
- I take constructive criticism well.
- I take action on the constructive criticism.
- I do what I am told.
- I show up!! On time!! Prepared!!
- I look for outside help on my spec/class when I am stuck and try to better myself to help the group and always try to be #1 on the meters for dmg (or above the other tank atleast) and #2 on meters for dmg taken (below the other tank) and above the other tank on healing done. When it comes to a dps spec I work on competing against other balance druids in the raid or on the server of similar ilvl to have better dmg done less dmg taken numbers better uptimes on dots/buffs/debuffs... and I continuously scour the druid discord/druid forums for ways to increase my numbers and look up fights to see where I can get ahead and be prepared. I will also msg the raid leader to find out strats prior to the raid so I can visualize it in my head and be prepared. I will accept help from anyone who knows more than me on my class/spec (which less face it.. someone somewhere knows something more than someone else).

How long have you played this game?
Started at the end of BC.

What other guilds have you been in? Why did you leave?
No Pressure - falling apart
Irresponsible Adults - Fell apart
Apex - Benched/Sat due to 'low threat/dps' (this was at the very beginning of legion and the gm refused to listen to anything i had to say)... bear threat and dps was deplorable at the time...
Deafening Silence - Couldn't make raid times once Legion came out
Second Attempt - Bait and Switch (joined on premise it was raiding guild.. they didnt even have 5 people to run a dungeon with at the time)

Describe your endgame raiding experience. Include the current and previous box release, if possible.
11/13M HFC - tank
3/7M EN - tank
3/3H ToV - tank
10/10N NH - tank
3/10H NH - tank

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?
Guardian. Tank. I get hit in face and make sure my friends dont get hit in face. Me bear. Me eat mobs before they eat you. (lol) My priority list is to make sure that thrash is stacked to 5 (i have legendary legs) and does not fall off of my target(s), use mangle on CD, if moonfire has proc - use it.. if mangle and moonfire are both proc at the same time - mangle is first, then thrash, then moonfire.. only use moonfire when it has proc.. (i am spec in Galactic Guardian).. use swipe as filler.. maul has no place in my rotation unless im not tanking something and i am going to go over rage cap.. (I do not use Pulverize as with the legendary legs it has been found to be a loss overall to use pulverize over R&T) I also use IF or MoU for my mitigation.. try to maintain atleast 1 IF at all times while tanking something... use my RoTS on CD basically - unless there is something coming up I will need the CD from. I am currently spec in brambles.. so I also use barkskin on CD (since with brambles I am spec into survival of the fittest) to increase my dps.. (again, unless there is dmg coming up where I will need the mitigation from barkskin).. on progression where it's needed I switch my talent to Guardian of Elune to extend the length of IF/MoU and the healing from FR.

I think that covers it.. if I've forgotten something I'm sorry.. It's after midnight and I've had a headache all day that turned into a migraine that i dulled back to a headache briefely..

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?

What websites do you use to research on your class and new boss strategies?
theincbear, discord, youtube, mmo-champ, wow forums, guildies/friends in

We raid 20-man endgame content from 9 PM to 12 AM EST / 8-11 CST three nights per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. Are you able to make these days and times?

Describe any prior commitments that could change your raiding availability.
None that I can think of at this time.

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. I am an alchemist for a reason!

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 have weakauras set up, I have skada..(but it's hidden in combat), I have DBM (not showing since I'm not in a raid boss there :|), ElvUI.

Post link(s) displaying your recent raid performance -- a screenshot of Recount/Skada with skill breakdowns showing or parses.

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

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?

Do you have any guild, raid, or class leadership experience? If so, describe it.
Not really :( I was recently promoted to officer in current guild for stepping up with providing cauldrons and helping try to recruit and promote recruitment within our discord. But, the guild seems to have failed.

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.)

How old are you

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 (None)

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 and sometimes Discord 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 can listen and reply using my voice.
