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. i'll have to get one and add it in im shy Razz

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? Oh Yes

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

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding? Achs its kinda an obsession latly and money griniding other than that its leveling proffesions and getting gear for my alt Zn

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? 1300 Health Pot, fish feast is normaly a safe bet but i do bring my own just incase.

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? Yes i would be willing to respec but i wouldn't like it tryed out blood tanking got sick of it im a frost tanker and i like it my duel spec it unholy dps 5k dps is the best i can pull tbh its not brill and that why i rather tank.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible. Well as a tank and like most other tanks its stamina all the way but i do like to get as close to being hit caped as i can most people don't like the tier bonnuses but i tend to go for them don't normaly let u down.

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. Being a dk i have one of the most OP moves in wow atm the Anti-Magic Shell so for exsample in the OS+3 encounter for exsample that shell saves you for almost certian death when u have the acolite up increasing fire damage by 75% stacking with the 50% from the drake when that stage comes interlinked with GS, Hands of Sacrifice and PS it is the only way to beat the fight so when it comes to single target tanking keeping enough runic power to consitenly use rune strike when it is activated is esential and Cd's like trinkets and Unbreakable Armor are nice for little enrages to subside the extra damage.

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. Spoken to friends about differnet types of tanking as a DK tryed Blood tanking for a wile saw the increase in health and the extra aggro on single target but got sick of loseing aggro on packs and i found i can hold aggro on a single target in frost just as easly as in blood but aoe tanking becomes so much easyer.

How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids? Mining and Jc, When u have Jc u can't really level it without Mining or an alt with mining without spending a boom but they both give me increased stamina which helps with the tanking and jc'ing gives some nice gems for my duel spec.

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. Once again i'll have to get one togther and post it later.

Any additional things you'd like to add? Thanks for taking the time to read my application forgive the spelling mistakes i exscuse im Decilesic, Thanks Again. Alpa

A few issues I see here. One huge one is your gem to activate the meta. A nightmare tear is a horrible choice for tanking. I'd strongly suggest you replace it with a Shifting Dreadstone (10 agi 15 stam) or Regal(?) Dreadstone (10 dodge 15 stam). Also you glove enchant, generally an 18 stam patch is superior to Armsman. Avoidance even with Chill of the Throne isn't so much an issue, or at least from a healers PoV, it isn't. Also, Tuskarr's Vitality is often a better boot enchant choice. 8% movement speed might not sound like much, but with the ICC fights the way they are, it's so much better having that over 70 hp.
Another thing would be your hit, it's pretty damn low. In an ideal world, you want to be at least melee capped against level 83 mobs (8%) if not pushing for spell cap, even more so as frost.
You mentioned your buff food type and that you take a fish feast. Sure, it's alright, but it isnt optimal. Generally a 40 agi 40 stam or 40 str 40 stam buff food is better, but whatever.
As for your comment towards Tier bonuses, the DK ones aren't too terrible. Although with that said I haven't read much into them and I don't tank as a DK often, aside from the fact blood tap is more of a threat/dps button than anything these days.
Anyhow, good luck with the app.

I'm afraid we have no need for another tank at this time, better luck elsewhere.
