Nemesis - Thunderhorn - Left when the raid team collapsed :(

Possibly in the future, I do enjoy figuring out how to improve a raid's performance against various bosses however I am happy as just a normal raider for now.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Reputation
Number of Reputations @ Exalted: 1 Bodyguard, if that counts, on this character.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Play Style

What sort of position would suit you best in terms of what you are looking for from a guild (delete as appropriate)

Core Raider: I must raid 2 times a week, at least
Flexible Raider: I will sign to any events Im able to attend but wont ragequit if I dont make the group
(I chose both as I would love to raid however I'm happy enough to be sat out so long as it's fair)

Which of the following days each week are you available? Please see the top post for details of our current raid days.

Monday 21:00 CET until 23.30
Tuesday 21:00 CET until 23.30
Wednesday 21:00 CET until 23.30
Thursday 21:00 CET until 23.30
Friday 21:00 CET until 00:00
Saturday 20:30 CET until 00:00
Sunday 20:30 CET until 23.30

Why did you chose your current spec?
Frost is currently the top spec for mages, at least until we can get more crit in which case I can see Fire becoming top. I also enjoy the playstyle of Frost overall so that is my second reason.


Tell us a little about your spell/shot/melee rotation & general play style in a raid/dungeon/group situation. (You may link stats websites such as WoL in support of your application)
As a Frost mage I need to have my Water Elemental around so that he can DPS for me whilst I eat a sandwich. In all seriousness though, I will open up with a Mirror Image/Icy Veins (glyphed) combination, allowing myself and my images to have a higher multistrike chance and burst a lot of damage. I will tend to spam Frostbolt, using my Water Elemental's Water Jet to gain me 2 Fingers of Frost procs before using a Frost Bomb to increase my Ice lance damage against that target. I will also use Frozen Orb on cooldown for similar reasons. During my Frostbolt spam I will sometimes get Brain Freeze procs which allow me free and instant Frostfire Bolts. I will use these whenever I have either 1 or 0 FoF procs so as not to risk wasting a possible proc. I will only use a procced Ice Lance without a Frost Bomb if I only have 1 and it is going to run out else it's a DPS loss. When it comes to Mirror Image and Ivy Veins coming off cooldown, as they do so at seperate times, I will judge when to use them based on whether it is more beneficial to use Mirror Image straight away or to wait for Icy Veins, this generally comes down to how long the fight lasts.



Choose THREE of the following which best describes your usual WOW week. Delete those which do NOT apply

- Inguild only group instancing
- Spamming Looking for Raid
- Challenge Mode in-guild groups

Which of your achievements in WoW are you the most proud of, and why? *This does not have to be a recognised Blizzard acheivement - it could just be the slog of levelling from 1 - 85, or looting an item you have farmed for a long time*
I would say that becoming an Officer and main Raid Leader in Nemesis was my proudest moment. I got on well with the other officers and it felt like I was truely being accepted as a permanent spot in the guild, with it being a lovely guild that felt amazing. It also allowed me to take charge and help the guild to progress much quicker and easier as I really dedicated myself from then on, benefiting both them and myself (Dem may tell you otherwise but he's mean :( )



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Other Stuff

Do you know an existing member of the Highland Warriors? If so, who: for how long, and how do you know them?
Demitas, Lynara, Avlina, Bishamon and Grindlenub. I have known Dem, Av and Lyn since joining Nemesis back in Cataclysm, Grindle was a part of the guild but was on an extended break so I met him later, and Bishamon joined later into Cataclysm as well.



Why do you want to join the Highland Warriors?
I wish to join Highland Warriors for raiding and also to reunite with some of the members of Nemesis as I've missed them for quite a while now.


How will you improve yourself as a Highland Warrior?
I will do my best to keep up to date with tactics and listen to anything the officers say, whether that be tips for improving my damage or anything else generally.


Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself?
I'm fairly easy going and would love to have a 1 to 1 chat with an officer to answer any questions you may have. Also, if you feel raiding is out of the question for the moment then I wouldn't mind joining as a social until such times as you feel I am ready.

No, they're all on Argent Dawn, would you like a list of my Thunderhorn alts? Moved most of them over to Argent Dawn about a year ago.

Ok, the only reason I am asking about alts is that we expect the majority of your playing time to be on Thunderhorn, we are not an alt guild.

I'd say about 90% of my WoW time would be on my main character. I'm not really an altaholic outwith levelling them for professions etc.

I'd be more than happy to bring them into the guild, I'll likely eventually move 1 or 2 of my characters from AD to Thunderhorn as well :)

That's great.

I only have one last questions, from your previous guild it seems that you were advanced in your raiding, we raid at a slower pace and sometimes with not the optimal setups, how do you feel being in a guild with a slower pace to what you have previously done?

I don't mind a slower pace at all, I tend to enjoy the social side of raiding more than the progression :)
