What framerate do you generally play at in 25 man raids? Is your PC and internet connection reliable? What's your average latency to the game servers during evenings?
On an adverage raid evening, id be sat on around 100 ms and around 60 Fps. my connection is reliable, unless ofc something is wrong at my ISP outgame Smile

Why are you applying to Bloodpack?

Ever since i started playing WoW late TBC, as i got to know the content and how hard things actually where, bloodpack always where one of the top contenders. From what i hear you guys are a structured organised guild with only aims of progression, this is something i admire.

Have you played with anyone in Bloodpack before, who might vouch for you?

Well im not sure on a vouch of such, but i would say i am good friends with Stylezyo, firefightern and shini, played with these guys quite alot.

What is your current guild and why are you planning to leave?

i am currently in Dark Secrets, i had a break from raiding for a few months to sort some IRl stuff out, and was in there as a casual, i am now planning to pick up my raiding again but that of a higher level. I have enjoyed my time in the guild and met some fantastic players, just i wish to start a new somewhere else Smile

What previous guilds have you been in?

I have been in only Dark Secrets since i started raiding.

If this is a cross-realm application, should you be accepted for trial, how soon can you transfer here?

No, i am on Anachronus.

Do you currently have any pending application with any other guild? If yes, who with?

No i dont

Do you have any high level alt characters? Have you raided with them before?

Yes i have a level 80 Druid, Specced Balance for pve, and Resto pvp, It was my main in TBC, but wasnt a raider at that time, its gear isnt fantastic, but its nothing that cant be improved.

What interests and hobbies do you have outside of the game?

I enjoy socialsing with Friends and family, music, etc Smile

What is your past raiding experience in the game to date? Please only include content that you cleared at the appropriate level cap - we're not interested if you cleared AQ 40 last week.

Molten Core - No
Onyxia - No (only the RE designed level 80 version in Wotlk)
Blackwing Lair -Nope
Ahn'Qiraj - Nope

The Burning Crusade:
Karazhan, Zul'Aman, Gruul's Lair & Magtheridon - on my mage none in TBC, on my druid only Karazhan and Zul'Aman
Serpentshrine Cavern & The Eye -none on Mage, SSC on Druid.
Mount Hyjal, Black Temple & Sunwell -None on either Characters in TBC

Wrath of the Lich King (excluding commonly pugged content):

Naxxramas 25 - Cleared
Malygos 25 -Cleared
Ulduar 10 -Cleared
Ulduar 25 -Cleared
ToC 10 normal - Cleared
ToGC 10 heroic - Not cleared
ToC 25 normal -Cleared
ToGC 25 heroic -Not Cleared
Please list any achievements from a raid environment that you have and feel we should know about.

I have The "Twilight Zone" achivement from OS 25man, and some other smaller ones from other Raids. (Not too much to brag about im afraid)

Are you available to make our raid times? If there is a night when you can attend some times a month, but not always, please state so.
Thursday = 19:30-22:30 [Y]/[N] Yes
Friday = 19:30-23:30 [Y]/[N] Friday will be a tricky day, probabley the day id miss the most, with IRL commitments etc.
Sunday = 19:30-22:30 [Y]/[N] Yes
Monday = 19:30-22:30 [Y]/[N] Yes
Tuesday = 19:30-22:30 [Y]/[N] Yes

Do you use these following addons?
Deadly Boss Mods / Bigwigs - Yes
Omen - Yes
DoTimer or some other sort of spelltimers - No ( but i am open to Suggestions)
Grid - Yes
Any other addons which you feel should be mentioned?

If possible, please try to provide a screenshot of your UI in a raiding setting. If you aren't able to get one from inside a raid, a screenshot of it from a battleground will suffice.

With blizzard adding optional "hard-modes" to future encounters, we're intending to beat the more difficult version of each fight, not just the basic version. Are you prepared to spend the time re-learning encounters to beat them in their hardest incarnations?
Ofc i am, At the end of the day thats what being in a successful raiding guild is all about, everyone needs to put the effort in to learn encounters and eventually beat them.

Are you prepared to sit out if an encounter requires a certain raid composition for which you are not ideal?

Yes ofc i am Smile Cant always be in on the action i suppose

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding?

Doing dailys, Earning money, Pvping - something constructive! Very Happy

Raiding's not cheap. Flasks, potions, buff food, and of course repairs all cost money and time, and so does keeping your gear gemmed and chanted properly. Are you able to support your raiding expenses? What consumables do you typically use?

Yes, i never let myself get too low of cash to be unable to fund myself for the basics, Flasks, Potions, Buff food, enchants etc. Typically i would bring, enough Firecracker salmons, Potions of Speed, Potions of Wild Magic and ofc Enough Flasks of the Frost wyrm to get me through raid time - I tend to top my supplies up often enough to never go short Very Happy

Why have you chosen your particular spec/class? How familiar are you with your class' other specs? Would you be willing to respec if the raid required it? Do you have dual-spec?
I feel more than confident saying that i am more that farmiliar with my class, i have gotten to know all aspects of it and am very confident using all 3 of my specs if requested to, i have used all of them before and can work them to full capacity, I do have Duel Spec (Arcane PVE) (Frost PVP).

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible.
I tend to go for Spellpower/Haste on my current gear, i am atm quite far above hit cap for arcane, so that is no worry for me. Crit on the other hand has little contribution into arcane, ofc its nice, but the mechanics of Arcane spec mean its not as required as other stats.

Please give a brief description of how you go about doing your job in a raid. What's your DPS cycle/priority system if you're a DPS? What spells do you use in what situations as a healer? How do you go about maximising threat whilst minimising incoming damage, as a tank? What more is there to tanking than those two aspects? Use a particular boss fight as an example if it will make it easier to talk about.
My current spec in Raids/Instances is Arcane. I tend to go for the x4 Arcane Blast, and reliabley the Miissle barrage has procced, i follow the Arcane blasts with Arcane missle PRocs, ended by a Arcane barrage, Rinse and repeat! If for some reason the Missle Barrage dosent proc, i carry on Casting Arcane blasts, Big numbers, but little mana effitiencey, if again it dosent proc within the next few casts, i cast a random other spell to reset, this happens very little if never! as for threat, thats never really an issue as arcane, but as other specs (Deep fire) it can be, i mearly use my rescourses, Mirror images (temporary threat reduction) and invis when its available, (permanent threat dump) This normally works fine Smile
Do you use external resources (such as 3rd party forums, spreadsheets, simulations) to research your class and spec? Give examples, links, and commentary if so.
Before i even logg into Wow, I check Mmo-champion.com, this gives updates on everything going on in wow, and relative things behind the scenes, also checking their and Wow-eurpe forums regularly. Elite jerks have some nice mage discussions and debates on Specs and gearing advice which i sometimes find useful Wink

What professions have you chosen on your raiding character? How do they benefit you in raids?

I Used to be Tailor/Inscriptor, i dropped tailoring as i found it of no benifit to me at all. i then took up jewelcrafting, this has prven a better option, its not only good for my gear with its own gems, but is helpful to guildies and Friends when needing something making. Inscription i kept, as i feel it is a nice proffesion to have + the Shoulder enchant is too imba not to have Razz + ofc First aid, cooking and fishing all maxed Smile .

Please provide a recent combat log parse (e.g. WWS, WMO, WoL) of your character in a raid environment if you have access to one.

Dont have access to one of those sorry Sad

Any additional things you'd like to add?

Just like to thank you for taking the time to read my application, and hope i can offer what your guild is looking for.
Thanks Dpmage Smile
