Tell us something about your class that you don't think most people know.
The new haste break point for emerald dreamcatcher is around 25% where you can cast a lunar strike, wrath, and a GCD (probably to refresh a dot or use a bracer proc) before refreshing with another starsurge
Tell us about yourself - age, timezone, schedule, fetishes, etc.
22, just graduated college, live in PA.
Outline your previous raid experience. Please be as detailed as possible, including any links if applicable.
I started playing in wrath, but I remained in pretty low key guilds until the end of cata. During dragon soul I was maining a rogue and was recruited into Duality on zul'jin. I ended up joining that guild at the end of cata and was with them through the first raid in Mist. I ended up leaving them because they were raiding a little too long than I could handle (about 5 hours a day, 5 days a week). I also wanted to get back to playing boomkin, which was one of my favorite specs. I ended up joining Refined soon after I left Duality. I raided as Refined main boomkin throughout the majority of Mist earning several top US kills. I was doing all this as a high school student, so when the time came for college I said I would stop playing while in college. As it so often happens, I came back after about a month and raided with them for about another month until I realized I really couldn’t handle the course work and raid full time so I stopped again. I started raiding with Giggity next. I raided with them off and on, usually when I was on a break for school and had the time. Eventually they broke up and I stopped raiding again and really haven’t been actively progressing like I use to since then.
Detail your off-spec capabilities (ie: gear level, experience).
I've been tanking OS, mostly just for dungeon runs. I dont really have much raid tanking experience.
How do you prepare for raids? Be specific.
I always make sure I have all the necessary consumables to perform at high end level, including potions, flasks, food, and runes. I also make sure I have read up on an strategies for the bosses we’ll be working on, whether it be videos online or discussions in the forums. I like to see how bosses will play out in PTR if possible as well.
What do you feel that you, personally, bring to a guild and raid environment?
I think I bring someone who is experienced in top tier end game raiding, as well as an expert in my class. I know how to recognize and improve on failures in attempts and learn how to maximize damage while ensuring all mechanics are met.
Tell us your best joke.
Whats worse than having ants in your pants? ...................................Uncles. (used to get free cover once at bar)
What made you apply to Negatory?
Like I mentioned before, I use to raid with Giggity for a little bit and near the end of that guild, alot of people ended up going to Negatory. I believe Everly might still remember me, I'm not sure if anyone else still plays in there.
Were you referred by an existing Negatory member? If yes, who?
No, but I'm hoping Everly remembers me enough to give me a glowing recomendation :D
Negatory is a mature guild, and as such you will be subject to foul language, off-color humor and "adult" discussions - understood?
Is there any additional information we should take into account when reviewing your application?
I know I'm not the traditional applicant due to my inexperiences in recent raiding, but I can promise you that in my prime I was consistently one of the best boomkins out there and I want to get back to where I once was.
