Shaamm - Area52

Post by sham » Mon Oct 07, 2019 7:21 pm

1. Character name, Server

Shaamm - Area52

2. Class, Race, and Spec (and Artifact Level)

Druid, Troll, Balance 65

3. Link to an Armory profile, and an explanation of anything that may not be readily apparent from your Armory profile (alternate sets of gear, currently PvP-specced, etc.) ... -52/shaamm

4. What are your usual playing hours?

A lot

Are there days/times when you are consistently unavailable?


Inform us of your daily work/school schedule, what time do you get home from work/school, and what time must you be in bed for the next day. Are you able to make our raid times in general?

7:30am - 3:30pm, this would interfere with my ability to extend a raid night

Is this availability going to change within the next few months, or with a change in Semester (if applicable)?


5. Discuss your prior endgame raiding experience. Specify your experience with Heroic/Mythic in previous content as well as your experience in the current tier.

nVus -- ~200 world G'huun
Washed up Scrubs -- ~110 Jaina
~70 Uunat
Infinity -- ~41 Queen

6. Why do you want to leave your current guild? Why do you want to join us? Specifically, what interests you in our band of merry idiots?

2 long-standing members returned to boomkin and they recruited the raid leader of Encore, who is also a boomkin. So they either thought I was shit or didn't want 4 boomkins or both.

7. Give us some info on your class knowledge and self performance analysis in this section:
7a. What resources and practices do you use to keep up with your class and maximizing your DPS/HPS/Surivability?


7b. What fights in the current tier do you swap Talents and Traits to something different than the norm (if at all)? What do you swap and why? Feel free to list on a boss per boss basis.

Swapped to vision for just Queen since I didn't see much Zaqul prog.
Played the raid essence for early queen prog to get the P2 push before we were looking at second add.
Only thing you ever swap is Twin Moons for Stellar Flare.

c. How do you analyze your performance on a new fight and figure out how/what you can improve on next week?

I scaffold myself through things like WAs or BigWigs adjustments based on what I need the most assistance with.

Don't just say you use logs and compare to others of your class - what specifically are you looking for when you have a good/bad parse?

All I can do is play to RNG, a parse doesn't really mean much unless you're consistently low. If that happened, I guess I'd look at the details -- CD optimization, positioning/pre-moving

8. Please include your character log report showcasing your performance on the relevant bosses of the tier. If your logs are private, please change your Warcraftlogs login and list the username/password here so we can access your logs. If you aren't comfortable listing it publicly, please PM it to Palin privately on these forums. Please remember to change your WCL login again a few days later after we've reviewed your application. ... -52/shaamm

9. Of the above logs, please do a quick analysis of what fights you did well on, what went wrong on certain fights, etc. Use this chance to explain any context behind good/bad logs.

The only relevant log is Azshara. I did fine, my add responsibilities died in time, my hulk damage seems on par. 11 swiftmend casts looks good (all on me because they're mostly just to proc switch hitter). My p4 damage got fucked because I got console buff but had to die to a beam so I could ankh totem and soak later.

10. Can your PC handle WoW at high effects (Lust, Scorp Room, etc.)?


11. Please include a SS of your raiding UI. IF A KEYBINDING IS NOT SHOWN ON YOUR FRAME, PLEASE EXPLAIN AND list any relevant keybinds not shown in the screenshot. If you're using something like a Razer Naga, please explain that. We are going to question if your keybind for a personal defensive is something like "9" - so help us understand why that is.
Make sure we can see everything that pops up in a raid, meaning take the SS in combat in LFR or something of the like so we can see your boss mods, timer positioning, WeakAuras, raid frames, etc.

12. Tell us a bit about yourself. Age, gender, work/school, hobbies, etc. Add anything else you feel is pertinent.

I'm 24M, I'm a Social Studies at a Collegiate school in my area connected with the local community college. I like playing video games like wow or league. I'm currently playing a lot of classic wow while I've been breaking from BFA. I'd prefer to play mage in the coming tier. I currently have a heroic geared one which needs essences I don't mind farming. I'd much prefer to not play boomkin.

13. Out-of-game contact information - Discord tag, ID, etc. Some way we can contact you besides these forums.
