Topic: Progression group fell to BFA
Spec and Role Applied For:
Elemental, Raider/Mythic +
Is there anything unusual (suboptimal or goes against standard theorycrafting) about your current spec
or gearing? If so, please explain:
I sim on raidbots and run whatever is highest per the fight that I would encounter. I read information on Stormearthandlava to stay up to date on what is working best for the class and am also a member of the applicable discord.
Do you have a viable offspec(s), and if so what is it? Which specs are you comfortable playing in a raid?
I can fill in offspec as a healer.
Please link one or more logs, preferably recent:
Please provide one or more screenshots of your UI while in combat (preferably in a raid/dungeon):
I don't have any screenshots of my ui during this expansion but I am using Preach's UI if you are familiar with his
Please go to speedtest.net and test your connection to Chicago, USA. Post the link to your test here:
What kind of computer do you have? (CPU, GPU, RAM, etc)(Hint: Use the WoW Beta profile page):
i7-8700K, 1080Ti, 64GB Ram, Liquid cooled
History and Availability
Please give an account of your raid experience, including any pre-WoD content you completed. Please
only include content completed when current:
Started WoW a few months before TBC was released. First experience raiding was in Kara. Played a little during most expansions but burned out from TBC and life. Did not play WoD at all. Picked up wow again after legion had been out for a bit. Started tanking on my DK and was recruited into guild to tank for their group 2 raid. Eventually earned a spot on their mythic roster and ran the group 2 raid on the side. Was asked to gear my Ele shaman during ToS and ran that in Antorus as well as my DK in the second group. Planned to start strong this expansion but I'll go into that in the next question.
What other guilds have you been in? Why did you leave them?
I am currently in Gnome Regrets on Azuremyst/Staghelm. We had quite a few people decide BFA was not for them or they wanted breaks from serious grinds and other life events(including the GM) and our mythic group did not have enough people to continue with serious progress. I still want the challenge of doing Mythic + and an opportunity to do Mythic raiding. That is why I feel I must look for a new place to do.
What websites or tools do you use to prepare for new content and to keep up-to-date on your class?
stormearthandlava.com, mmo-champion, simming on raidbots
Why do you want to join Pals for Life?
Your recruitment post said you like to raid and do Mythic +. That fits my check boxes.
Do you have any foreseeable schedule conflicts with the posted raid times?
I am active duty in the military so anything could happen but more than likely will not be a problem.
More About You...
Which of the bosses you've encountered was the most challenging to you, and why?
Zul can be challenging if priests miss the dispel and I have to try and purge because it uses a lot of mana and can only do about three to four before going oom. Most of the bosses that I have encountered this expansion have been fairly simple but I have not been in the mythic content yet.
What do you think you bring to the guild that others of your class/spec cannot bring? Why should we
choose you over another applicant?
I have a good attitude and am willing to do what is best for the team. If that means sit, I sit, if it means passing a bis item to someone who would benefit from it, then I'll pass it. I want to be a part of a team and help the team get better.
