Hi my names Jack im 20 years old and studying forensics and security in computing in final year, this involves hacking into emails and making virus which is quite interesting. My main passion though is wow as it's been my main game to play since BC (on and off). Not only do i play wow though i am a vivid gamer that plays multiple other games such as cs:go, TF2 and many more. The reason why i believe that i will fit into the guild is im a very easy going guy that is always up for a joke that doesn't get offended but when it comes to progressing i can be serious taking advice from other members if they have input. Also joining the guild i just dont wanna join for the raiding i wanna join for the social aspect as well of meeting new people to have a joke with and play outside of the raid times as well. With the progress as well i understand that there maybe multiple wipes but this is part of the learning experience as you cant expect to learn and get better at your class/raid without taking some wipes and criticism.
What is your previous raiding experience?Any achievments you are proud of? (Can be from an old expansion raid):
I have been a dirty casual all the way up to wod as lack of time but now i am in university i have plenty of time. The achievements i have achieved this expansion so far is ahead of the curve blackhands crucible and ahead of the curve black gate. I'am disappointing to say i was unable to get the Highmaul curve achievement as my guild i joined disabanded after we did normal.
Which class and spec(s) do you play?:
As coming back to wow this expansion i started back off playing hunter marksmanship which was able to let me achieve normal in highmaul but was able to bring back up when joining a new guild for feat of strength for BRF. For HFC i thought i'd take another challenge of learning to tank (Brewmaster) with this i was able to push myself to achieve the HC feat of strength for HFC but as there was a lack of need for a tank in the guild i chose to re roll as fresh Rogue which i have never played before but multiple guides and videos ihave been able to learn the class fast and i am still improving everyday. This has allowed me to clear manno and arch multiple times on the rogue.
Currently our raiding days are Wed, Sun, Mon 9 to 12 pm server time. Which days are you able to attend?:
I would be able to attend all these days as i would clear my schedule to make sure that i am free to attend.
What do your think you class/spec can offer to the raid?:
With my class i believe that arogue would be a good choice to bring as it would allow for extra dps and it is a very mobile class which allows for it too easily place touch of doom for example away from raid.
Describe your rotation, use of cooldowns:
To optimize my rotation i will always start in stealth and then use a pre pot and ambush to allow for a faster build up of combo points. After stealth and ambush i will make sure that i have infected the target with revealing strike and then build up to my 5 combo points which will then be spent on slice and dice to increase my attack speed. Once i have maintained this i will pop Mirror of blademaster which i try to keep up constantly after its one minute cooldown. I will then pop vanish and use ambush again to build up my combo points faster which then will be topped up with sinster strike to get my 5 which will then be dumped on the target with eviscerate. After dumping this i will pop preparation taking away the 2 minute cooldown from vanish and pop that and ambush again to quickly maintain my combo points always making sure that i keep slice and dice up and revealing strike on the target. From then on i will use adrenaline rush and sinster strike to build combo points then dump them with eviscerate. From then on i will always keep my slice and dice up with revealing strike continuing my rotation with Mirror of the blademaster constantly being used when off cooldown and appropriate.
For AoE i would use blade furry as it allows for a 35% additional damage for nearby enemies. I would then keep the basic same rotation but making sure that all the targets have revealing strike on them and once I have full combo points i would dump them using crimson target for the additional 240% damage. With fights such as assualt when there is both AoE and single target i can easily switch from blade furry and out making sure that there isn't a lack of energy loss.
To show how i can keep on top of my cooldowns and abilities this link will show you my ui. http://imgur.com/a/C5NoC
How do you keep up to date with your class and raid content tactics?:
I keep up to date with my class through using shadow craft to check how i could optimize my gear and icy veins to optimize my talents for each fight. With raid content to learn the tactics of the fights i watch multiple guides such as Fatboss and methods, as well as watching the guides i read up on tactics through the ones posted on icy veins.
The guild is full of "X class/spec" would you consider changing your spec?:
Why did you leave your old guild?:
The reason for leaving my old guild is that yes they were progressing on mythic but they didn't have space for and they weren't running a off day raid which didn't allow me to progress meaning i have to pug if i want to upgrade at the moment apart from the weekly manno and arch clear they do for the ring.
Please provide a link to your armory:
We are using Teamspeak 3 to communicate. Do you have a headset available?:
Thanks for your application! Right now I am the guild's only rogue, so your application is of special interest to me. I can see from the detailed way you describe your rotation that you know how to play the combat spec.
I would have lots of detailed questions for you, but let me start with one general question so I won't overwhelm you. It seems that you play combat both on single target and aoe. Is there any particular reason you do this? Most rogues play either assa or sub for single target situations, since it is vastly superior over combat in those situations. In my opinion, rogues have to be able to at least play two specs to be competitive in any kind of raid environment. Of course I could be underestimating your combat single target dps, but in that case I would be really interested to see some of your logs.
Would you be willing to learn a second spec next to combat? Should you find that request daunting, then I can reassure you a little bit: assa is a very easy and still moderately competitive spec to pick up if you have the right UI setup to easily track your debuffs. Subtletly is harder to play and does more damage, but I think assa rogues should be able to succeed just fine if played to their potential. Should you get a shot in our guild, I would be willing to help you.
Once again, thank you for the application, and I am really interested to read your response!
Hello :) We talked before you applied so as the guild master of the guild i have more general questions to ask you. 1)How far away are you from your legendary!?
2)Do you have any tier items?
3)Could you share perhaps some logs of your old guild that you were in?
As far as your application goes we will be in contac with Anc so try to impress him! Also just bear in mind that your gear will need a few upgradges before you are 100% ready for mythic, but that can be easily fixed. Thanks for applying we will be in touch with you :)!
Hi thankyou for the fast reply :)
With the legendary i currently have 17 tomes with 4 bosses left to give me a chance of more. Currently i sadly have no tier items but i plan on changing this as soon as possible by doing the weekly runs in order to improve. With the logs i dont believe i have any but i am more then happy to log a couple of fights and share them with you in the next couple of days.
Thankyou for your time
May i say i look forward to answer your question and hope there up to your standard. My choice of combat has no particular reason for choosing it as the only reason that justifies it is the lack of gear eg. daggers which did drag sub down compared to combat.
For all of my time leveling and parts of highmaul i did play sub so i do know the basics of the spec and its rotation, also i have a ui set up with its weakauras so it would be no hassle taking it up as a second spec. I am more then happy to learn it as i know its the better choice for single target and i have looked into guides such as icy veins.
With the logs if you do wish to see them i will try and collect a couple of fights in the next few days.
Thankyou for your time
Hi there Kushsenior,
Ive discussed your application with the others and we've decided you can trial with us!
With this trail we of course expect some initiative from your end;
- Get up to date with other specs
- Gear as fast as possible (with your current gear its no use for us to take you on mythic runs, however you are allowed to join on heroic ones. Please make sure to upgrade all your items with valor etc!)
- LEGENDARY RING
