Are you the original owner of the account/character you're applying with? yes im the one and only owner of this account.

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? I normally go with 30-50 fps during 25 man raid and 50-100 latency. And my computer and internet are stable 24/7.

Why are you applying to Bloodpack? Because my guild went casual and that wasnt something for me. Also heard alot of great things about Bloodpack from a m8 on your server. Used to play on Anachronos, but transfered to Al'akir a long time a go.

Have you played with anyone in Bloodpack before, who might vouch for you? Hmm not what i recall. Been a long time since ive seen any from Bloodpack.

What is your current guild and why are you planning to leave? In Keepersofnorthrend on Auchindoun and leaving because the guild went 10 man raiding instead of 25, and they like to raid with the inner people, the people who know each other IRL and see each other evry day in school, so i wont have a chance to raid with them.

What previous guilds have you been in? Dark Secrets(Anachronos)Keepersofnorthrend(Auchindoun)

If this is a cross-realm application, should you be accepted for trial, how soon can you transfer here? Asap as you say the magical word "Transfer now!"

Do you currently have any pending application with any other guild? If yes, who with? No i dont have any other apply pending at this time.

Do you have any high level alt characters? Have you raided with them before? I have a lvl 80 holy pala and have raided a bit 10 man with him, but not that much.

What interests and hobbies do you have outside of the game? My GF, school.

Any other addons which you feel should be mentioned? Hmm not that i can recall of.

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 i am. Im actually looking forward to raiding hardcore with out guys if that becomes the opotunity. I dont mind spending time relearning the fights and reading up on tacs again.

Are you prepared to sit out if an encounter requires a certain raid composition for which you are not ideal? Yes. I know that i will help the rest of the raid, so i dont mind sitting on the bench.

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding? When im not raiding, i spend my time with my girlfriend and play alot of First Person Shooters. I dont mind spending alot of time on difficult games to increas my skills.

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? I am able to keep my economy in and out of raids stable and over the averge. I normally dont go under 500g. I keep my bank slots with an extra gem and item enchant for evry piece of my gear, incase i got an new loot.

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 am good with BM and can play Surv. Atm im playing MM. And im willing to go another spec if the raids requires it.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible. I normally saves my dkp and hopes that i get a ranged weapon, since its the right way to a higher dps. After that i try to get a setbonus if there is one. Then neck, rings, trinket, melee wep.

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. HMm let me see... We can take Sindragosa, because its a fight that requires alot of movement and therefore it can make it hard to keep my rotation up. My priority as a MM hunter is to be sure that i use CS(Chimera Shot) when ever the CD is up. Then the rest of my rotation follows.

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. Hell ye! I try and look up on hunter forums, and ask high end raiding hunters for advices and on a daily baises i go looking for more info on hunter dps. Not just in MM, but also in Surv and BM.

How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids? Ive choosen Alchemist(Transmuting) not due to raiding(BIG ERROR) I did that before i was in Keepersofnorthrend. And i see that as a big error because i could have gained alot of gems if i had choosen JC instead of Alch.

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. I dont have access to one atm soz. Would like to know how i can link an image in this apply. I got one but not sure how to put in this apply.

Any additional things you'd like to add? I hope that you guys could use an active raiding hunter, with skills and a mature mind. I dont whine about loots, and im 100% focused at raids. I try to keep in mind that i can always do it a little better than i do at that time, and that sometimes help me to do it a bit better. Im openminded for new ideas and comments on my char, spec,dps,class and profs. I got a good sence of humor and love to raid.

A few points regarding your application.

  • First up could you please log out in PvE gear
  • To link an image you will need to use an image service such as imageshack then just paste the URL
  • A WoL or WWS parse can just be linked by pasting the URL
  • With regard to gearing strategy the question is asking about how you prioritise stats, what gems you use etc. - not just what the most important gear slot is - could you go into a bit more detail
  • Could you give a bit more detail regarding your rotation/approach to your role in a raid
  • Could you explain your choice of glyphs in MM spec

There is that screen of me in a raid. http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/4418/wowscrnshot020810220423.jpg

I got a WMO stats report here if you would like: http://www.wowmeteronline.com/combat/12838961#damageout

New armory logout: Darn the armory is down -.- But i logged out in PVE gear.

Regarding to how i prior my stats it is as following: ARP: Because its the best for MM hunters. It gives me the ability to shoot through armor and makes my damage higher. Then im trying to find a smooth way with Haste also, because it makes me shoot faster.Next is AGI for the crit. Then AP for the bonus. I mostly use ARP gems to max up my ARP%. And for my meta it is crit. And i enchant my wep with AP to get it a little bit higher, and my ranged with crit.

My role in the raids that i have been in have been mainly dps. I kite the oozes on Rotface and keep the balls up in the air on Blood Princes. I try to bee in range of my target constantly, and throw a MD once in a while. If the boss go into an air fase, or i have to run from it i refresh my Serpent Sting. My rotation prio is this:(I normally throw up Hunters mark before engaging the boss)Serpent Sting,Chimera Shot, Aimed Shot, Arcane Shot, Silencing Shot, Kill Command. And depending on the boss i pop Rapid Fire, Kill Command and Readiness.

My glyphs: Trueshot Aura, because it gives my Aimed Shot 10% more crit. Chimera Shot, -1 sec of the CD. Same goes with Kill Shot, -6 sec of the CD. If i did forget to mention some things in this reapply please contact me asap.

ArP and MM

OK, ArP being the best stat for MM hunters isn't 100% true - however you are slap bang in the zone where Agi and ArP have very similar stat weightings meaning there isn't a huge DPS difference between gemming one way or the other.

Without knowing when you swapped from Agi to ArP, I'll assume you haven't just always gemmed ArP - however with your ArP levels you should have dropped Arcane Shot from your rotation as Steady will now do more damage - you still use it if your having to move and everything else is on CD.

Forget about trying to increase your haste - its by far the worst stat available on hunter gear and you should certainly never gem for it.


Beyond the user of ArP gems your other choices are a bit odd - Relentless Earthsiege is currently the best meta choice - slightly better DPS and easier gem requirements (i.e. one Nightmare Tear in your chest would give you the best socket bonus your gear offers and activate the meta).

Your choice of 2 blue gems is also a bit odd - I know you need them for your chosen meta but why are they not at least in blue sockets?

Having said all that changing your gems at this point wouldn't be a huge DPS increase, but it's something to remember.


My question about glyphs was a leading one - they are by far the worst part of your spec. The only 'mandatory' hunter glyph at the moment is Glyph of Serpent Sting - it is by far the biggest DPS increase and you aren't using it.

The Glyph of Chimera Shot is a trivial DPS increase although this can vary depending on your play style and latency.

Glyph of Steady Shot is also fairly big DPS increase over the Glyph of Trueshot Aura.

All of the above can be checked using external resources or tools, http://www.femaledwarf.com/ can be used to compare theoretical DPS values when changing specific things.


I'm not 100% sure if we are in need of ranged at the moment - I'm sure our GM will reply fairly soon.

Thanks for the application. I'm afraid that we do have three hunters, two of which are fairly active, and your application isn't quite impressive enough to make that four. Best of luck elsewhere.
