Tell us something about your class that you don't think most people know.
I think most shamans undervalue the strength of single target healing with healing wave / healing surge with tidal procs. During Mythic+ weeks you'll often see shamans complain about grevious where I don't really struggle because I use the kit to it's fullest potential instead of doing what is "known" or "sims the best".
Tell us about yourself - age, timezone, schedule, fetishes, etc.
26 - EST - I work M-F 7am-3:30pm EST, and love bangbus. My favorite is the Tome special.
Outline your previous raid experience. Please be as detailed as possible, including any links if applicable.
Legion is my first expansion where I've actually played the game. I started it by making my own guild that wasn't very successful since I was new to WoW in general. We got 2/7 Mythic and then disbanded. I then left and made a mage (previously a prot warrior) and reached out to Tome who at the time was the realms top mage for advice on how to actually learn the game. He helped me out and I took in the knowledge he had shared and learned about weakauras, eluvi, knowing how to actually play a class and studying on mechanics and what not. I then took that knowledge and made a brewmaster and got into a guild called "Straight Outta Healers" who was 2/10 heroic - and within a month I helped correct them into a 4/11M guild. That's when I knew that I wasn't really interested in lower progression raiding and ended up taking leave. I couldn't find anything in TOS so I played casually on my guardian druid and feral druid - and then the guild I was chilling in needed a healer for antorus so I rolled a resto shaman for them never have healed before. After around 5 weeks of learning the class and updating my UI I've become a rather strong healer that produces nothing but excellence in their mechanics and numbers. Currently in the guild "Kitten Mittens" however, the players are not at a skill that is good enough to finish Heroic Antorus while i'm itching to get my foot into a progressed guild and reach my goal of cutting edge before the next expansion.
Detail your off-spec capabilities (ie: gear level, experience).
Currently have a 950 ele set that I've started to work on and can hold about 1.3mil DPS with a sim of 1.5mil. Not familiar with ele yet, so there's still a learning curve for me there.
How do you prepare for raids? Be specific.
I tend to review logs of other healers or read up on the dungeon journal. I read into any information that I can find about it and theory craft which talents would best fit this situation along with what trinkets. I'll also watch the Fatboss videos from their PTR adventures for a visual on what a raid boss looks like.
What do you feel that you, personally, bring to a guild and raid environment?
I bring a good personality, a thrive to constantly improve myself, and activity higher than average players. I'm not just doing a +15 for my weekly and logging in for raids. I'm actively doing keys that range from 15's to 21's to constantly help improve my over all mechanics and game play. Also, I bring memes and I'm pretty much the most handsome person on this planet.
Tell us your best joke.
What is the difference between a snowman and a snowwoman? Snowballs.
What made you apply to Negatory?
My friend Tome is in the guild - has said good things about the place, and I feel that I could bring a great value to the team.
Were you referred by an existing Negatory member? If yes, who?
T O M E
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 understand that I'm newer with a limited background in Mythic raiding - but I know if given a chance I'll meet your expectations and more. Thank you for your time in reviewing this application.
