Biovore - Warlock (Destruction/Affliction) (faction change)

Post  Biovore on Mon May 17 2010, 21:57

Personal
Name(optional): Jonathan
Age: 20

In-game name: Biovore
Class and spec: Warlock 3/13/55 (usual raid spec)
Armory link: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Anachronos&cn=Biovore

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

What framerate do you generally play at in 25 man raids? between 35 and 60fps, depending on the encounter.
Is your PC and internet connection reliable? I rarely have connection issues Smile
What's your average latency to the game servers during evenings? Around 300ms, give or take 50. Razz

Why are you applying to Bloodpack?
Bloodpack are known (especially across Anachronos) to be a good quality raiding guild with good progression. Id like to learn from some of the best so i can become the best player i can be, and thereby be the best i can be for the guild. From me you'll gain an experienced warlock with an ambission to succeed, and a reliable raider with impeccable attendance and raid maturity. =D

Have you played with anyone in Bloodpack before, who might vouch for you?
Unfortunately not, as i have always played Alliance =/

What is your current guild and why are you planning to leave?
My current guild is called Knights of Ni. They are a social guild that do a little raiding at their leisure. They know i am looking for a new raiding guild, however i have known some people there a long time and they've been kind enough to give me a home so to speak whilst im searching Razz being guildless is so lonely XD

What previous guilds have you been in?
My first guild was called Vicious Kittens. I used to raid there on a warrior and my warlock was an alt. I left to persue my raiding and progressing ambitions. I joined a guild called CR. Nice guild with a good history going back to TBC. However some of their best members left, which caused more to leave etc. The guild officially disbanded the week that the plagueworks was released to the servers. My final guild has been Obsidian. Had a blast there and learnt many things, met many people. Had a small dispute with the hierarchy there long term which caused me to consider my future. They used a decent DKP loot policy, however with the very large numbers or extensions both on 10man and 25man, i was unable to accumulate any gear for vast periods of time. Of course progression is fantastic, and i dont mind a good wipe Smile but not being allowed to get loot eventually got beyond credable.

If this is a cross-realm application, should you be accepted for trial, how soon can you transfer here?
Not cross-realm, just faction change. and i could change faction as soon as required.

Do you currently have any pending application with any other guild? If yes, who with?
I have no other applications currently pending.

Do you have any high level alt characters? Have you raided with them before?
I have 4 level80 alts. With a mixture of professions. i have raided with my warrior from TBC > ToTC patch release. Also some raiding on my druid to keep busy and help some friends.

What interests and hobbies do you have outside of the game?
Well id like to say im a guitarist but i play alot less since i discovered world of warcraft Smile I have a Warhammer 40k Tyranid army i enjoy though its just for the collecting and painting aspects Smile i dont really play the game too much as i always end up breaking the models and having to fix them Sad Ive been a ChelseaFC fan since the age of 6 (CHAMPIONSSS!!!), however i live near Edinburgh in Scotland so i go to some Hearts/Hibernian games when time permits. Im currently going to Edinburgh's Telford College, just doing some more Highers as im still not sure what career i wish to persue. I met my girlfriend of the past 14months in Vicious Kittens guild lol so she keeps me busy also. But i wont let it interfere with raiding, gotta wear the trousers in the relationship right? Razz

Do you use these following addons?
Deadly Boss Mods / Bigwigs / DXE - I use Deadly Boss Mods.
Omen - Absolutely.
DoTimer or some other sort of spelltimers - DoTimer (but usually only if i play affliction).
Grid - Afraid not. Ive used xPerl and similar addons, however i never found any of them beneficial =/ Kudos if it works for some Smile but its just not for me this interface stuff.
Any other addons which you feel should be mentioned? I dont belive so.

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?
Absolutely. I want to see everything that Blizzard has to throw at me Smile

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

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding?
Well i do my daily heroic on this character and my druid, sometimes a few dailies but not too often. Ive never taken much interest in PvP or "achievement" farming in all honesty. i guess i dont do an awful lot outside of raids, just log out and find something else to do.

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?
Tender Shoveltusk Steak, Potion of Wild Magic, Flask of the Frost Wyrm.

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?
Well i made a warlock at the time because we are the best class ingame Wink I like destruction spec for the good raid damage, particularly burst. I know the affliction rotation fine and im a little rusty on the Demonology spec. I would respec if required to have a Demon spec so that an extra lock had it incase it were required, although id prefer to keep destruction as my out and out raid spec if possible.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible.
Stat wise its hit(until capped), spellpower, haste, crit, spirit.

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.
On a stationery fight i open with life tap to make the glyph kick in, followed by a curse (usually Doom unless Elements is required). Immolate > chaos bolt > conflagrate > 3x incinerate with backdraft, followed by 3x incinerate at typical cast speed. Rotation from then basically involves keeping immolate on the target without DoT clipping to reapply it, chaos bolt and conflagrate as soon as they are off cooldown, reapply curses when required, and if all those conditions are met, incinerate spam. On some fights i add corruption just to keep a little more damage ticking whilst im moving. eg if i get mutated injection from Rotface, or when moving to a gas spore on Festergut.

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.
I use elitistjerks website to keep an eye out for new ideas and other peoples simulations. Sometimes i use Ensidia's site for tips and to read opinions of other good players, but thats more opinion based theory rather than researched information.

How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids?
I found Lightweave on cloak to be a good choice (ie tailoring) as spellpower scales well with warlocks, and its a nice proc to add to this. Jewelcrafting i found to be a very versatile profession, allowing differing benefits. eg large spellpower increases, but also large amounts of hit with fewer gems should i be lacking when new gear comes along.

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.
My previous guild never really used these sites so i dont have a combat log, and if i found one it would be quite old unfortunately.

Any additional things you'd like to add? If accepted and i faction changed i had intended to roll Orc ^^ Not sure how that would affect anything just making note of it. Also accepted or declined good luck to all on your future ventures. /salute Razz

I doubt ill manage to find a raid viable one unfortunately as im currently in a social guild and not a raid environment, and already saved most worthwhile places this reset already.

Ill do my best ^^

A screenshot from a BG is enough, if that helps.

I'm just curious, your latency, as you stated - is 300 give or take - That's not the kind of latency you want to have while raiding hard content at all. Do you have Leatrix Latency Fix installed? O.o

I must admit im a bit concerned over the 300 ms aswell if that is indeed average....

There is alot of stuff to move from/dodge in heroic encounters and having a high ms wont help you at all during this and quite frankly, we kinda expect people to be able to do these basic things. Im playing with 70-ish ms and I still think thats rather high so I dont really see how it would be possible to do these things. I might be wrong thou but like Feyri said, have you tried the Leatrix Latency Fix?

Leatrix is now installed and im working at around 75ms.

Ive spoken to Goblette in game and explained my problem regarding getting a UI screenshot onto the forum. Hopefully between us it will be resolved soon.

Sorry for leaving you hanging Sad

We've just taken on a new trialist lock and would like to see how that turns out before we start recruiting anymore locks.

Good luck in the future and finding a guild that suits you.
