Why did you chose your current spec?
Whilst I love healing, I’ve not had much room to practice this in a smaller guild that only requires 3 healers, which were already present, so this is my primary spec, though quite often it goes unused. My Secondary, Elemental, is a lot more fun to play than Enhancement, and the majority of my raid experience has been at ranged, rather than in melee. I do love hitting a mob with chain lightning and then dropping an empowered Earthquake upon them, it gives a real sense of power and worthiness.


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)
Well to start the opening is different from the main body of the dps, and depends on the timing of ‘Hero’ for me. If it’s A ‘Hero’ start, then it would be Unleash flame at 3 seconds of countdown, summon Fire Elemental on 2, Heroism on 1(using a macro that uses Draenic Potion of intellect for the boost), and Flame shock on 0, the next spell would be ascendance, and then lava burst for the duration of ascendance. As Ascendance finishes, I apply a refresh on flame shock, before using up two lava bursts (thanks to echo of the elements talent) before spamming lightning bolt, waiting for the cooldown or procs of lava burst, whilst I keep an eye on my elemental shield, hitting Earth shock for fulmination damage when it reaches at least 17, though often it’s more likely 19. As flame elemental reaches the end of his duration, with 3 seconds or less left, I switch him for searing totem.
Without the heroism start, Unleash Flame is used on the 2 count, flame elemental on 1 count and flame shock on 0. With this, I use draenic Intellect Potion in a joint Ascendance Macro instead, so it is still powering up my attacks at the start of the fight, without wasting time on a separate button press. Spiritwalker’s Grace is on an as-needed basis to provide movement whilst casting to reduce dps loss. I’ve also used this when an interrupt has been missed, in order to get in range to use windshear when it’s been required, though this is not a very often occurance.


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
- Solo questing


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’ve got to say it was crafting my first Jewelled Panther (Sunstone), as it represents a culmination of my efforts in mining for hours, with holding back on spending gold enough to reach the 18K needed for the essence of life (I believe it was called) item. I hate to admit it, but I usually run through my game cash rather quickly, and whilst WOD has given some of the best earning opportunities so far, it seems to have encouraged even more frivolous spending to match it. The first one took me nearly a month to save up for, and not wasting money, making the game seem entirely different, but it was worth it. That and its 3 brethren to almost make a set (Onyx though still eludes me to this day, and is my next huge goal planned).

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


Other Stuff

Do you know an existing member of the Highland Warriors? If so, who: for how long, and how do you know them?
I know Sierra, we met grinding alts in Northrend, I was running from a mob, waiting for my vanish to cool down, she happened to spot me, and drop a few heals on me to keep me alive until the cooldown was ready and I could escape harm. I thanked her, and we just got chatting and become great friends. Through her I’ve met Night and some other guildies to help out with alt runs on my DK (who also might have slightly benefitted from the gear >.>).


Why do you want to join the Highland Warriors?
The guild I’m in is falling apart, I’ve seen the numbers drop from a healthy 15, to now less than 10, this reset we had to PuG another dps just for our ordinary run. Sierra is always boasting about the progress of her guild, and from raiding with them I can see they are a lively and good natured group, which is what I want to be a part of. I’m tired of logging in and only seeing one or two other guildies online, to feeling isolated on this tiny rock of a game hurtling through an unknown solar system.


How will you improve yourself as a Highland Warrior?
I’ll talk to folks on forums, or in game if I see them doing great dps, I’ll talk to seasoned raiders to pick up their tips and tricks. I’ll read guides, and look into dps reports crawling through seemingly endless data in order to track not just what causes a high dps spike, but also, a low one, to see when things might need changing.


Anything extra you would like to tell us about yourself?
I make the best pancakes in the world, they destroy sorrow and hunger in their tracks, who needs more than that?

I don't want to stop. And maybe I want to run away from it all. But living in the village with everyone fills me with joy. The joy of living with them far outweighs the fear of death. Isn't it the same for you? Travelling with your friends gives your life meaning.

Hey Kin!!! (You are Kin forever in my mind i'm afraid :p)

I'm glad you put in an application :-) the thought had crossed my mind to see if i could entice you to come over to us but i knew you had quite a commitment on your server, so as i said i am very happy you put in an app.

You mention that primarily you enjoy healing but have been forced to go DPS thus far, in our raids depending on weeks there might be opportunities for you to raid heal, how do you feel about that, and how does your gear level compare for this also?

Secondly.... Alts... wow... you mention once to me you thought u had a lot of alts, honestly i have nothing compared to you lol, things you might have picked up probably from us is that we expect the majority of the play time to be within the guild, we do not expect you to transfer everything over as the cost would be too great especially looking at that list, with all the transfers you could finance blizz for at least a month :p, howver this would also mean any alts on TH would be expected to be in guild (minus a bank guild alt) would you be happy with this?

Hey Night! :D Yeah, I'd leap at the chance to heal, I'm 697 geared I believe for it. Well, at least, the gear is all gemmed and enchanted (the measly 4 pieces we're allowed this expansion anyways ;)) Kin, K-dawg, even Oi You, as long as you have eye contact I usually respond ;) Most of the altrs are unguilded, all of them on Thunder, so signing them up is not a problem.

I used to use Noxxic, but I found their information to be off, and very limited, so I use Icy Veins, and elitistjerks primarily with watching fatboss guides on bosses. I tried MAXdps for gear, but in the end found askmrrobit to be much more helpful on that front. Hope that helps
