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?
I prepare myself for an upcoming challange with the adequate requirements and make sure that i am fully aware of what i am about to encounter. Which means that i read up in advance all the abilities, obstacles, oddities, behaviour etc which the boss and his environement will have. I search to find if there are any posible pieces of subtlety that might lead the raid to victory or the opposite. I study every posibility that i can take advantage of and any specific job that i might have to take(such as kitting, interrupting, despelling, throwing rocks/hammers/orbs, killing objects/creatures which harm raid members, triggering something and etc) i understand that every encounter has its unique details which are tremendously important.

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

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding?
I recently became an Achievement Whore so im just farming achis.

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 dont have any financial issues and byuing flasks and paying my own repairs is no problem.

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?
The class has many posibilities, i can choose to be a haeler, melee dps or ranged dps at any time. I chose to be elemental mainly because i prefer ranged classes, later i just got addicted to being elemental shaman.
I have icc10/25 gear for both resto and enhancement so its no problem for me playing with another spec, but i would realy prefer to stay as elemental.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible.
Spell Power sockets all the time, 12sp and 10 haste if im going to take a high socket bonus, 12sp and 15stamina x2 to get the meta and sometimes to get a socket bonus as well. I prefer stamina because it might save my ass in a critical situation.
My stat priorities are:
SP above everything Else
Haste is on second place
Crit comes third.
(i stick with these stat priorities and gearing myself according to them)
296 hit cap idealy



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.
The key binding which i use are formed in way that i can cast my
abilities fast and smooth. The most important ability that stands above everything else in my spell book and action bars is Lightning Bolt, there is just no possible way for me to create a rotation without it. It is the core spell for an elemental shaman and it is purely impossible for one to go without it. The second most important ability is Flame Shock, it trigers my totem proc and gives my LB a 100% critical strike chance which is awesome. If i dont have a flame shock up on a boss i consider myself useless in terms of dps. There is only one negative issue with it and thats the 1sec cooldown which i get on my spells right after i cast it, but that is not a serious holdback, it would be better without it ofc but i can keep my dps up. Third is Lava Burst which is also quite awesome because i crit every time with it and its cast time is 1/4 faster than Lightning Bolt, the bad thing is that it has an 8 second cooldown but if i quickly cast Chain Lightning(same cast time as LB) right after Lava Burst i get a good dps increase.

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.
Elitistjerks and MMO‑Champion

How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids?
Enchanting gives me more pew pew on rings, Jewelcrafring gives me pew pew sockets. Which means more pew pew in raids.

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.
Sadly i dont have any logs.

Any additional things you'd like to add?
Best regards Ivan.

I'm afraid that we've decided to accept another trialist for the ranged spot, and we don't have room for two at the moment. Thanks for taking the time to apply and good luck elsewhere.
