1. Mumble Interviews are available from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM Mon-Thurs and at reasonable times on the weekend. Please pick a time that works for you and the bulk of the application will be done there.
I'd rather do this on Tuesday at 7:00PM.

2. Please give a link to your armory and log out in your main spec and gear. Please briefly describe what other raiding specs you have available (gear, skill and desire)?

My other spec is Windwalker. Albeit not being as geared as Mistweaver, I feel confident raiding in it as I did play it in the previous tier. I don't mind playing it or switching back and forth.

3. Post a WOL or equivalent (yes - even healers and tanks)

4. Give a brief blurb describing why you're ready for progression heroic raiding. This doesn't need to be a detailed answer, listing previous heroic progression is sufficient.
To be honest, I did not do any heroic raiding (except the first boss in MSV and second but post-nerf) but feel ready for it.

5. What made you leave your previous guilds?
Lack of progression, obvious loot council favoritism.

6. You'll be expected to transfer over the first reset after being accepted, have an authenticator and make our raid times, 7:30-11:30 PM Server Tues-Thurs(Pacific time Zone). Just mention something obvious here as we've had people miss these bits in the past so don't want any surprises.
Times are good, I use an authenticator (the smartphone version).

7. Provide us with a screenshot of your UI.

8. If you've got anything extra you want to add, feel free to do so here.
I might not be the best geared or most progressed, but I feel confident about my skills. I think you should try me out.

Thanks for apping. A few questions about your app:

  • Any reason why you have so much spirit going? I've always found ~9.5-10k to be ideal and any more seem to be a waist.
  • Do you feel you are at the stage to hit the second haste breakpoint?
  • I see you completed the "A Test of Valor" but have not completed the "Chapter II: Wrathion's War." Any reason why this is so?

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to check my app out!

  • This may sound mean or spiteful, but for the better part of this tier, I was teamed with sub-par players and felt the need to stack more spirit to last longer since fights went longer. I was even spec'd into Ascension until recently.
  • Yes. I coined a lot of gear this week and intend on getting there (and losing spirit, while I'm there)
  • I lagged on the first part of the chain, and (to be honest) lost interest.

i see you have no experience in hard modes this expac and have not even cleared normal tot. what makes you think you are ready to jump right into hard mode progression? have you researched and watched vids on all the hard modes we have already killed? do you know the differences between the hard mode and regular mechanics?

This is indeed my weak point. I feel honored since I did not even think you guys would even consider me. I wouldn't want to waste any of your time (mine also, mind you) applying and having this conversation if I did not think I was 100% ready. I am not one to get carried - I like being competitive and pulling my weight. I did my research and know the differences.

We spend many hours progressing each week on new heroic bosses. We are on a pace to continue killing one new boss every week, which is a steep learning curve on a 3 day schedule. It can be frustrating and burn you out. Some people PVP or collect pets or mounts to make all the frustration worth it. Others get such a huge rush from killing a new boss it amps them up to kill the next one.

Losing interest is a common reason to stop playing a game. What drives you to log on every day? What are your long term goals playing WoW? What kind of player are you?

I explained myself wrong (blame me, i'm french canadian). It was more of a I will probably never go to a proper ToT raid, why should I do this than an actual loss of interest in the game itself. I've decided I'd do the same as my more elitist friends and join a guild where I could actually make a difference and progress through raids. I have been playing this game since vanilla and what keeps me going is the exquisite feeling of the nerd adrenaline rush when we finally kill that boss. This is why I login. Currently, I get into my raid, hit a wall for three hours, and call it. Spending time progressing turns me on. Spending time regressing aggravates me.
