Personal
Name(optional): Anders Bruun
Age: 17

In-game name: Bruunpala

Armory link: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Anachronos&cn=Bruunpala

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

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 am running about 30-40 fps with Medium to high setting, and about 80 ms.

Why are you applying to Bloodpack?
I am searching for a 25man guild, HC prefered ofc cuz this is were the lewtz is, and i have been looking both cross-faction and -realm. I am currently residing on Anachronos, so naturally this is where i'd prefer staying. = less cost =P

Have you played with anyone in Bloodpack before, who might vouch for you?
I am afraid that i dont really now any of your players. I have seen Feyri at the dalaran banks many times though =P

What is your current guild and why are you planning to leave?
Atm I am in Relief where I also killed the Lich King on 10man, and my reason for leaving is that they focus mostly on 10man, and I wanna go 25man for the added dificulty and experience. Also i am looking for a place that wanna compete in the new Cataclysm expansion.

What previous guilds have you been in?
Keepers of Peace, Anachronos - Alliance
Spurts, Anachronos - Alliance
Unknown Error, Anachronos - Horde
Resolute, Anachronos - Horde
Dark Secrets, Anachronos - Horde
Relief, Anachronos - Horde

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

Do you currently have any pending application with any other guild? If yes, who with?
No. Not at the moment.

Do you have any high level alt characters? Have you raided with them before?
I currently have a Druid at 80 that i've healed a couple of 10 and 25mans. Also i recently got my hunter to 80, i spend a great deal of my time gearing this.

What interests and hobbies do you have outside of the game?
Well i like to read fantasy books and i like to play with my dog in the fields near my house.

http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/8814/wowscrnshot060410231021.jpg It is messy, but it works for me =P

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?
This is my main reason for applying here, i want "new" content. =D

Are you prepared to sit out if an encounter requires a certain raid composition for which you are not ideal?
Ofc, but i wont promise that i will enjoy it =P

How do you fill your playing time when not raiding?
Currently gearing my hunter alt. Other than that, i do the odd raids and dungeons.

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 carry a healthy supply of food buffs and flasks all the time.

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 started my raiding career as a tank, and along with that kept a holy spec, recently (4 months ago =S) i specced ret instead of holy, cuz my guild required a melee dps instead of another tank, and then i got the taste of real blood. And that wasnt my own, so to say. I now have fallen in love with the hacking and slashing that is the dps main job. I've lately been going to raids as Holy, becuz my Ret gear basicly cant improve from 25man's anymore, atleast not the first 4 bosses -..- anyway this lets me practice my healing.

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible.
As Ret i go for STR all over, using the +10 Tear to active my legs socket bonus along with a +20 str. If an item has +4 str or more as the socket bonus and a yellow socket i put +10 str and +10 crit in it. I try my best to avoid ArP and seek out items without this stat. Also i sometimes go for Agi pieces as these are better itemized than plate, and often has less points wasted in Sta.
For my holy spec i always go straigth Int, using the +21int/mana on spell cast Meta gem, and a tear in the helmet to activate both Meta and +9 sp socket bonus.

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.
Atm my current Prio is Judge > DS > CS > Cons > HoW > Exor, the prio is affected by my current T10 2p set Eff.
I do my best not to stray far from this Prio, and for bosses like LDW i switch back and forth between SoC and SoCom, SoCom of the "Trash" Waves in phase 1 and SoC when i go on boss between trash waves. Also I know that raid buffed and with my current gear, i need atleast 12secs on my target for SoC to do more damage than SoR, this is becuz of the way SoC stacks and adds more damage on hit depending on how many stacks you currently have on your target.

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 Rawr everytime i want to check my dps "goal" and to test gear upgrades, so that i know what pieces i am going for. (That would be Shadowmourne =D)
I also spend a lot of time on Wowhead's paladin and raid forums.
Also i watch as many of Tankspots movies as i can, both the "Weekly Marmots" and the encounter guides.
Last but not least i tend to check Elitistjerks as often as i remember it, to brush up on the latest news and theorycrafting that involves paladins.

How do the professions you've chosen benefit you in raids?
I currently have maxed JC and Mining. JC becuz of the +34 gems, and mining becuz i lvl'd it for tanking and cba to relearning it in 5 months for grinding in Cata. My plan is to collect low lvl ores before Cata hits, keep farming whilst lvling and then going BS when i hit 85.

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'm afraid that i dont have anything up-to-date, but you can check out http://worldoflogs.com/guilds/53340/ if you want.

Any additional things you'd like to add?
I hope you atleast consider me, and at very best accept me! =D So thanks for your time.

How do you see void zones on the left hand side of your screen!

Some suggestions,

Get rid of both recount windows, put grid there
Make all your action buttons smaller by at least 50%
Make your chat window narrower + smaller font
Make your char frame at least half the size, get rid of the portrait and the bars except for health and mana
Doing all of the above probably means enough room at the bottom to move the map there, then put buffs top left right

Hmm... good ideas, did some stuff to it. This is what it looks like now:

http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/9700/wowscrnshot061310193358.jpg

The black boxes are Tmw that i forgot to hide again =S anyway it shows my stacks of Corruption, my libram, trinket and the big clock near the chat box is to show me when BL is up.

Grid expands to just above the 4 "buttons" on the right side.

Need to find another place for Omen... it feels wrong to have it their. BTW about my char frame, i like to look at blood elfs =P

We've reviewed your application and based on some of your replies to our standard questions, which you may have not taken seriously enough and figured perhaps a cutsie response would be in the right place, they were not.
Combine that with your UI which is still fairly messed up, which causes us to believe that you won't be able to move out of potentially raid wiping encounter mechanics (Such as Shadow Traps and Defiles among others).

Best of luck finding a home elsewhere.
