1 - How's your current experience as a raider? Do you have any raid experience from previous tiers? If so, please elaborate.
Yes, I have currently cleaed Mythic Uldic (8/8 Mythic) in a relatively timely fashion. I have raided on and off for many years, with the most notable time being during Cataclysm, where I was a part of a top 40 guild on the global scale - raiding hardcore for the entire expansion. The past years, I have been raiding more casually - clearing a few tiers on Mythic since Warlords of Draenor,a although for most tiers I haven't had the chance to raid as I was not actually playing the game at the time.
2 - Are you familiar with being in a Mythic raiding guild and environment? What are you thoughts on rotating players on a boss-to-boss basis (aka "benching")?
Yes, due to my experience with Mythic guild as well as the Top 40 Guild (as mentioned abov), I am familiar with how a Mythic-level raiding guild works. I am familiar with how rotation-based rosters, and due to the fact that some classes and roles are better than others on different bosses of a tier - I am completely fine with this. I do not mind being benched if it is for the greater good.
3 - Which traits and personality features do you believe you bring to the table that should lead to us picking you over other applicants/members? Please elaborate.
Reliability in terms of perfomance and attendance are the two core factors that I believe I bring with me to a raid team. I rarely make mistakes, and if I do - I do my best to make sure it does not happen again. I learn tactics quickly, I maintain focused during raids, and I believe I am a generally calm and composed person, which helps bring stability to the team
4 - Raiding at a high level can lead to hundreds of wipes on a boss. It is important for our raiders to be consistent, and not make the same mistakes for those tries. How quickly would you say you pick up on mechanics, and how well would you handle wiping 150 times on a boss?
As mentioned above, I believe I pick up on mechanics farily easily. Wiping 150 times or more on a boss wouldn't be an issue for me, and as long as it feels as if we are actually progressing on a boss, I do not mind wiping.
5 - Do you have any alts you would consider playing? If so, which classes/specs are they?
Yes, I have a Restoration Druid, Hynkwai (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/ravencrest/Hynkwai), and a Restoration Shaman, Hønkwai (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/ravencrest/Hønkwai)
6 - Which specific Azerite Traits would you use for Single Target fights, and which specific Azerites Traits would you use for AoE-focused fights? Why?
Regardless of type of fight, I'd like to use 1x Reorigination Array, as the increased stats it gives is just too much to give up. Furthermore, the Azerite Traits I'd use for both ST and AoE fights are the same - Primal Insticts due to the increased pressure from Barbed Shot, and Haze of Rage due to the output it ties to the usage of my main cooldown.
For Talents: For AoE fights, I'd run Barrage and/or Animal Companion, and for Single Target fights I'd run Stomp (as the ST output is higher).
7 - Which goals do you have as a raider and a part of a raid team?
My goals are to clear the highest level of content available, in a timely fashion - all of which while being on a restricted 2-day schedule. I'd like to help the team achieve as high of a ranking as possible, both server-wise and worldwide.
8 - Where did you hear about our guild?
A post in trade chat by Iummune
9 - Do you know anyone already in the guild?
No, I do not
10 - Which guild were you in before (if any), and why did you end up leaving?
Insanity on Sylvanas, left due to unhealthy guild environment in terms of progression.
11 - Finally, what do you expect from us as a Guild? Which positive features do you believe you would bring to the Guild as a whole, and not just the raiding environment?
I expect a Guild that can fullfil my needs in the raiding department, as well as in terms of the social aspects of a guild. I'd like a Guild that do things outside of raid hours together, while being able to remain focused and composed during raid hours. To put things bluntly, I'd like a guild that actually interacts socially, and not just a guild that logs on simply to raid, and never interact outside of raid hours.
