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?
● Yes, that is part of the fun J

Are you prepared to sit out if an encounter requires a certain raid composition for which you are not ideal?
● understand at times class stacking may be required and do not mind sitting out.

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding?
● farming, occasionally attempt to level alts, /flexing around in dalaran

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 can support my raiding expenses no problem. ● Flask of endless rage, elixir of demonslaying (jaraxus), potion of speed, swifthistle, flame cap, also stacks of glyphs in case i need to switch them around for a particular fight.

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?
● Ive chosen combat 15/51/5 (ruptureless rotations) as my primary raiding spec for a variety of reasons, however the general consensus is that it is the most optimum spec for the current content, an example is that some may say that as long as combat has the versatility of 3 big cooldowns to use it will always be ahead of mutilate. We can see the advantage of these cooldowns in almost all the fights in toc25, a quick example could be burning portal/volcano in jaraxxus fight.

As for evis only cycles, now that they are on a par with low /highrupture cycles, i went for evis only due to the associated advantages such as easier target switching and better in "burn phases" eg xt heart phase and less "ramp up" time.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible. ● I use spreadsheet to decide all upgrades, in general terms it would be armour pen to soft cap (grim toll or mjolnir). If you mean in terms of stats a rough guild would be elitestjerks ep values:













White Hit



Spell Hit

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.
● Combat rogue ruptureless cycles are very, very simple: basically maintain maximum SnD uptime while essentially spamming evicerate. The only thing that separates the best from the best is good movement, maximising time on target and quality of cooldown management.

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.
● Using the latest version of Mavanas and Aldriana’s spreadsheets
How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids?
● Jc/Bs for min/maxing purposes.....ok so engineering may have a slight theoretically advantage is perfect situation but i trust in these passive bonuses.

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.
● None available
