What is your battletag, so we can get in contact with you?: Durandal#1172
Do you have mumble and a working microphone?: Yes
Describe your level of availability. For example, do you never miss a raid for any reason? Do you miss a few raids a year? A month? When you do miss raids, how predictable is it ? How long of a commitment can you make?: I may miss a few raids a year based on family obligations. I will always give ample notice when missing a raid. I can commit to at least until the end of summer probably longer if things go well.
Describe your computer setup and connection. Exact numbers or hardware serial numbers aren't necessary, but average speed, latency and framerates would be ideal: I have an iMac running ~55 FPS, ~40 MS. I play on that computer while using a laptop for mumble/discord/research while playing.
Do you use any particular important addons to increase your raid performance? If so what are they, and why do you use them?: I use DBM, GTFO, ElvUI, Weakauras 2, and Details.
Do you have a second spec that you are comfortable raiding with? If so what is it?: Not really but I am always looking into shadow
Would you be willing to respec to optimize raid performance, or if a fight required it?: Yes I would be. But all my gear and set up is for holy. I would need some help to run shadow. I am open to it but would need help.
In any raiding guild there is a chance that you would not be taken to a given raid or boss fight for a variety of reasons. If you were asked to sit out occasionally, would this be acceptable to you?: As long as there was a good reason, such as; performance, unexcused absence or other valid reason.
What kind of raiding experience do you have? (Focus on progress you made while content was current - killing C'thun at 90 may be fun, but somewhat irrelevant): I joined wow in WoD. My first raiding experience was in Legion. Progressing through all 3 raids so far through Heroic with AOTC every time. I have downed mythic Skorpyron with a pug.
Name some previous guilds you were in (up to three) and why did you leave?: <Fear No Evil> on Shattered Hand was my only guild I've raided with. I left because our raid team dissolved due to burn out from a few core and lack of interest with others. I would like to actively raid.
Is there anyone currently in Elysium that can vouch for you?: You have a new recruit Battletag: phillyx2000 he is a DH Síopao but I don't know if you trust him enough yet :D but he was my raid leader in <Fear No Evil>
Is there anyone in a previous guild that can vouch for you?: I don't know of anyone that is still playing that you might have respect to ask.
Take a minute or so to sum up your class / spec (a few sentences to a short paragraph) including role, stat priority, and rotation (feel free to go into detail if you want to impress us): Priest/Holy - My role is to keep everyone alive at expense of myself to down bosses. Though lacking in mobility and utility the priest makes up for it with powerful CDs. Through Serendipity those CDs lower. Stat priority is Mast>Int>Crit>Haste>Vers. There is a hard cap for Haste at 20% but no cap for Mast and Crit as Mastery gives more Echo of Light and Crit is just great. Rotations are not as important with healing as it is very reactive in nature. However strong AoE heal rotation for Holy is: Holy Word Sanctify to get Divinity Buff giving 15% increased healing, and Power of the Nauru giving Prayer of Healing 18% increased as well. Followed with either Divine Hymn or Prayer of Healing spam to serendipity to bring Sanctify off cool down and repeat. If you would like more on holy I would be happy to explain what I know and if you have more to offer I would love it!
Bonus optional questions:
Bonus - Is there anything else you'd like to mention to help set yourself apart from other potential apps?: I am a dedicated and loyal player who enjoys to play the game and eager to learn and takes criticism well.
Bonus - To you, what are some acceptable reasons to be sat out? How often? What are some unacceptable reasons?: Acceptable: Low numbers, poor mechanics, lack of previous attendance with no excuse, no study for fights.
Unacceptable: Having a friend take your spot, argument over loot
Often: up to GM/RL discretion unless it is already decided upon in rules.
Bonus - Would you continue to be interested in raiding if bosses did not drop loot, or acted like challenge modes (You got some cosmetic transmog at the end, but no gear upgrade)?: Yes pending I enjoy the community I'll be involved in. If I have a group of people I enjoy playing with I would raid for no loot.
Bonus - Rank these in order of importance to you<br/>I want my character to be the best it can be<br/>I enjoy PvE competition and want a shot to be one of the highest ranked players<br/>I want to complete the hardest content the game can offer: YES! Sorry it's hard to rank these.
