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? Never Lagged so much in icc10/25 that i've disconected or been killed for that reason.

Have you played with anyone in Bloodpack before, who might vouch for you? I dont think so, I might of.. but without noticing

If this is a cross-realm application, should you be accepted for trial, how soon can you transfer here? My character is currently here, I am thinking of moving a tank over ( He is a little undergeared 4.9k GS, but thats because I focus on my warlock and never play him ) hes a Death Knight.

Any other addons which you feel should be mentioned? I have recount

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

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?
I level a alt, gear a alt, or grind money ready for repairs + flasks.. and potions.
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?
Flask of the Frost Wrym, Potion of Speed, Runic Mana Potions ( I have Lifetap so they're not used much ) and I bring Fishfeasts sometimes for raid buffs

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 chose Destruction as my main raiding spec.. becuase I have go to know the rotation fairly well, and its very affective. Doing alot of damage in short bursts.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible.
My strategy is to use alot of small cast time spells of trash, but that do alot of damage. such as DoTs ( Curse of Agony )
( Corruption ) then small spells like ( Immolate ) ( Conflagrate ) then ( Chaos Bolt ) finally ( Inncinerate ) spam to the Cooldown to ( Conflagrate ) + ( Choasbolt ) Making sure your ( Immolate ) stays active on the target and you use ( Conflagrate ) as soon as possible for quickier casting.

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.
Well, Doing my job on a encounter like. Saurfang. I would first make sure I have a Demonic Teleport for a quick escape from his adds. then I would start using my rotation, which is listed above. but I would change my DoTs from ( Curse of Agony ) to ( Curse of Elements ) if your thinking why ? It reduces all the targets resistances by a huge 165, while increasing its damage taken by 13%... Increasing everyone DPS. but i'd keep corruption active. then carry on with my normal rotation... but as soon as the adds spawn. I'll try instantly taking them away from the mele dps, by using a quick cast spell such as. Immolate 1.31 second cast... then start my rotation off. or a even quicker method. DoTs. Put Corruption on 1 on the adds, instantly making it target you. then DPS'ing it untill its close enough to do damage. then using your demonic teleport to zip away from it... continuing till its dead. then swapping to the next add if there is any alive if not continuing rotation on the boss.

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 usually go on youtube, as I mostly respond better to videos than I do text. thats why I go to Tankspot for all my tactic updates.
How do the professions you've chosen benefit you 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.
I dont think I currently have access. but asoon as I do I will update my application.

Any additional things you'd like to add?

ok as its late only going to point out a couple of things Smile for starters your meta gem why not use chaotic skyflare diamond instead of the one your using as the crit would be move valuable then the lesser silence. Also you legs are neither gemmed or enchanted also skinning isnt really a good choice of a proffesion for a main char but im sure one of our locks will have some better ideas for you. Smile

Sorry for the legs, the reset was today and I literally got them a few hours ago.. in VoA10 so I haven't had chance to get the required materials for me +SP gems + Enchants, the metagem will be replaced. ( Thanks for the tip ) and as for the skinning, I dont even know why I got it.. I think it was when Artic Fur was worth something so I picked skinning to get some money but then never bothered with it

* Edit *

Metagem... Tick.
Legs Gemmed... Tick
Leg Enchant... Tick

with 7 minutes till server shutdown.

Hey, here a few pointers to help you out in the right direction:

Your gemming isn't optimal for maximizing your DPS. A pure Crit gem isn't as good as you think. A pure SP gem would be better or even a 12 SP / 10 Spirit gem would be better to get the socket bonus. If you convert SP to DPS, every 1 SP outweighs every 1 Crit by a large margin. Your legs have two Blue gems in them while one of the sockets is yellow, which is perfect for a 12 SP / 10 Haste gem. And you'd also get the socket bonus which is good. Your headpiece has a pure SP gem in it. A blue gem like the one in your legs would fit better there, as the socket bonus is very nice. And you will still have the meta activated.

Your legs also have the +50 SP and +30 stamina enchant. The other version with +20 spirit instead of the stamina is better for us warlocks as we benefit of spirit. +30 stamina won't save your ass if you're standing in something that will kill you, or overaggro and get one shot. Your boot enchant is also not optimal for a PvE environment. Tuskarr's Vitality is way better because of the minor run speed increase. Getting out of void zones, green/red/purple/turquoise fire faster DOES save your life.

Your shoulder enchant is not done. Getting exalted with the Sons of Hodir is VERY easy these days and it doesn't have to involve grinding boring daily quests. You can buy Relic of Ulduar off of the AH these days for a fairly low price. You can hand these in for rep, they upped the Rep you get from those in 3.2 I think it was. So in your case you need about 450 Relics to get exalted. Didn't do the math, because I really cba. Once your exalted with Sons, get the proper enchant. This would be no problem of course, if you had Inscription.

Going on to your specs. Your Destruction spec seems decent, I would suggest to switch to Glyph of Immolate instead of Lifetap once you get lower on spirit. Your destruction rotation seems ok, only thing I'd suggest is to use Curse of Doom if another warlock is on Elements duty or you have Boomkin or an Unholy DK in the raid, they bring the same buff. And also another thing, keeping up Corruption is an actual DPS loss, how strange that might sound. Using a single Incinerate will have more impact than using your global for a Corruption. Only use Corruption when you're moving.

Next is your Affliction spec. I really don't know what to say about this one. Are you using this spec in a Pve environment? Or is it a PvP spec I don't know off?

  • No Imp. Drain Soul and no Soul Siphon.
    You do know that Drain Soul is your strongest spell bar 25% right?
  • Improved Fear?
    Why?
  • Curse of Exhaustion?
    Again, why?
  • Grim Reach.
    This talent might come in handy in certain situations, Lich King phase 2 for example, but it isn't really a necessary talent to have. But do explain please.
  • Improved Howl of Terror
    You using this for Deathwhisper? Only possible fight I can think this one would come in handy.
  • No Bane and Ruin in your Destruction tree and using Aftermath.
    Did you read the Aftermath tooltip?


Just a quick rundown through your armoury. This is the second time I write this post since I accidentally alt+f4'd this page. So sorry if I missed something.

Hope this will help you out a bit!

Oh, I know I missed something. Why are you using a hit trinket? You have 508 (19.37) hit rating which is way over hit cap. You do know 17% is the hit cap? You can even lower it to 14% if you have a Boomkin or an Spriest in your raid, because they will provide 3% hit. You can get as low as 11%, but you will have to spec 3 points into Suppression in the Affliction tree to get the 14% (3% from Boomkin or Spriest).

Being that much over hit cap is a waste of stats really.

Unfortunately, we've taken two Warlock trialists recently, and cannot fit a third. On top of that, I'd recommend taking Sanakthe's notes to heart and make the changes, even though you're not joining us.

Best of luck elsewhere!
