In-game name: Shenta
Class and spec: Prot (main) Ret (os)
Armory link: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Anachronos&cn=Shenta

Are you the original owner of the account/character you're applying with? Yup

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? in 25 man my FR is normally around 30FPS

Why are you applying to Bloodpack? Im a keen raider with a "can do" attitude which has been forged in the fires of 10 man raiding over the last 18 months. I have been RL and GM everynight during this time and I just want to be a player again, I need to step down and enjoy the game again by pushing myself, I need to take a step back to take a step forwards. I hope very much that you can find a place for me in BP as im sure that I'll fit in very well.

Have you played with anyone in Bloodpack before, who might vouch for you? Pugged a few raids and hc's with your guys

What is your current guild and why are you planning to leave? I was GM of the Regulaters but i just want to be the best tank/DPS that i can be now due to a change in real life situations

What previous guilds have you been in? The regulaters/Limitbreak

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

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

Do you have any high level alt characters? Have you raided with them before? ICC 10 ready hunter that im more than happy to bring along

What interests and hobbies do you have outside of the game? I play in a band (vocals and guitar) I have a full life with my little girl and wife. I come here to expand my evenings with chaos and confussion.

Please list any achievements from a raid environment that you have and feel we should know about. I have done many raid achi' s that i could name but most of these have been done in 10 man so im not sure if you would be intrested. I would be more than happy to link these in game should you be intrested.

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.

Omen - yup
DoTimer or some other sort of spelltimers - no
Grid - yup
Any other addons which you feel should be mentioned? powerauras/recount/Healbot/RBS/bartender/pitbull

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. http://i1014.photobucket.com/albums/af267/ourangelswait/WoWScrnShot_011710_010245.jpg

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

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

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding? questing, topping up proffs and working on achi's

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? FoSb as well as the normal reagents for a pally. I pay for these with ease from my dailies.

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 have a ret spec and would be more than happy to respec but Prot is my first and main love. I love being the first in and last out during a fight, i make a point of knowing the tacs better than anyone (as you need to rolling a tank) and work hard to help every member of the raid do there job as well as they can.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible. Right now im gearing for stam with an affective aviodence OS

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.

A typical 969 rota to fire off with but after that i tend to work on a more fluid basis. I dont like to get tied into a set rota. The key to working well is reaction i think and a tank has to be 3 ticks ahead of everyone else. I have alot of macros set up to deal with any incoming issues like a general trinkets macro plus a trinket/DS/DP macro that helps no end when things get tough. I use powerauras to help me manage D.Plea and blessings to the max during fights.

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. Elitest jerks, MMO, WoW heroes, Tankspot

How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids? max BS/JC/fishing/cooking/FA. Better gear and food buffs.

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.

Any additional things you'd like to add? I ran my own guild for a long time, I also tried working with a new guild called Limitbreak but i found that to be against the core reasons that i merged my guild with it in the first place. Basically i want to find a dedicated raiding guild where I can have fun and push myself into the high limits of the endgame content. I work hard to make sure that im at the cutting edge of theorycrafting with each patch and i do my best to keep my gear up to a good standered for my main (tanking) spec. Im working on my Ret spec as well to help with other things but as mentioned i have an ICC ready hunter that im more than happy to bring along as well. In a nutshell i want to be a tank again, just a player having fun pushing the limits of the content. I Want to leave the politics behind and just raid night after night and to my mind BP is the best place for me to find a home.

Thanks for the application, but I'm afraid we've not got room for any more tanks at the moment.
