What is your battletag, so we can get in contact with you?: amdlinuxx#1585
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?: In my current guild I've only missed a small handful of raids. Usually with a week+ of notice.
Describe your computer setup and connection. Exact numbers or hardware serial numbers aren't necessary, but average speed, latency and framerates would be ideal: Custom built i5-6500 with a GTX 1060 6GB. Hardwired connection to the modem. 240Mb down. 12Mb up. depending on area i usually average around 50-60 fps at ultra settings 1080p.
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 a multitude of different addons, such as DBM/ WeakAuras 2.
I use DBM for the obvious (Boss timers. alerts things of that nature)
I use WA for more additional alerts. Some imported some made myself.
Do you have a second spec that you are comfortable raiding with? If so what is it?: no
Would you be willing to respec to optimize raid performance, or if a fight required it?: Yes. Though as a tank main for as long as I have been playing I would have to make some adjustments and really practice at the other spec.
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?: While nobody really enjoys sitting out, Yes I would understand that this is something that at times happens.
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): AOTC in EN, ToV, NH. currently 3/9H in ToS
Name some previous guilds you were in (up to three) and why did you leave?: <Free Loot Tuesdays> Currently in this guild.
Is there anyone currently in Elysium that can vouch for you?: Not that I am aware of.
Is there anyone in a previous guild that can vouch for you?: Likely a few members or my current raid team. If we decide to go further with the application process I can name people.
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): Tank. My job is to get hit in the face. So everyone else does not. While also not letting those hits wreck me.
Stat Priority Haste to about 30% as a cap. from there Mastery >= Vers then crit. With Strength and Stam being a large consideration as well.
Bonus optional questions:
Bonus - Is there anything else you'd like to mention to help set yourself apart from other potential apps?: I like to think I would be considered patient. I have leadership experience in my current guild as well as in my RL life (work/hobbies).
Bonus - To you, what are some acceptable reasons to be sat out? How often? What are some unacceptable reasons?: Pure incompatibility in the fight. Such as Warriors on Krosus in NH could potentially be sat in favor of another class. As many times as necessary.
An unacceptable reason would be because the RL decided they like the other person more and want to give them the kill.
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)?: This isn't something I have ever honestly thought of. I like the idea of loot as a way to make my character better able to deal with things. Making future fights easier. However, there is something to be said about learning the fights and not overpowering them with gear.
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: 1.

3. I enjoy PvE competition and want a shot to be one of the highest ranked players
