Application for Alt raids / Guardian Druid - open
« on: December 04, 2017, 10:34:57 AM »
Heyho there.
As I'm already as social/casual in the guild, I thought about returning to the game with a rather laid back approach. Since I have another main-game to dump my time into (I have my own sHC group in Final Fantasy XIV), I'm only really interested in your alt-raids for now.
Since I'm already in the guild, further details can be requested any time either ingame or on teamspeak.

Real name : Matthias
Age : 25
Nationality : Swiss
What timezone you live in? : GMT+1
Additional info that might be relevant : I am working in IT and sometimes work nightshifts from home about once a month. It happens on rare occasions that I'll receive a call during the evening. Since I used to raid on Thursdays in Final Fantasy for the past 3 years, I was frequently playing and working at the same time. This usually does never interfer with raid. During that time, I only had to take a call twice. If you want to hear more about my job and how it affects my playtime, feel free to shoot me a pm.

I'm also available around the clock on Discord. Sorriow#3974

Character information
Level : 110
Race : Tauren
Class : Druid
Armory Link : https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/corriow
Primary spec/role : Guardian
Secondary spec/role : Nothing geared, but I can play Feral/Boomkin on request
Applying for (Raider or Social) : Raider I guess
Are you willing to respec (immediately or in the future)? : Yes, I'm even willing to reroll, should something more serious develop out of that.
Total time /played : 8 days on my guardian. Over 500 with all characters.
Your Alts, if any : None so far.
Additional info that might be relevant : If WoW really hooks me again, I might transfer/level my old mains, which would be DK, Rogue and Shaman.

Misc information
Do you have a stable connection to the Internet? (Less than 1 disconnect from the server per day) : Yes
How is your computer connected to your Internet router? (Ethernet Cable, Wireless 802.11b/g/n/ac) : 1gb/s LAN
How is your router connected to the Internet? (ADSL, VDSL, Cable-TV, etc) : optic fiber
Can you use Teamspeak and do you have a working headset/microphone? Do you talk? : Yes
How would you rate your English, written and spoken? : I have a CAE in english, but I still have that t h i c c accent. I'm native swiss-german and I'm also fluid in french. I speak broken italian and japanese.

Did you level this character yourself? : Yes, but I used the character boost I got from buying legion.
What was your previous guild and why did you leave it? (or want to leave it) :
  • [Classic + TBC] Apeboys inc => rerolled character, server and faction to play with other people
  • [WOTLK] Collaterla Adversity => Group disbanded
  • [WOTLK + Cataclysm] Styx => Used to be a progression focused guild that started to invite some shitty memelords who literally never stopped talking shit, even when they fucked up. Group started to disband after people left one by one.
  • [Cataclysm] Aequinox => See above
  • [Cataclysm + MOP] Revo => Guild of a friend irl friend of mine I played since WOTLK with. I used to sub for people in their 10 man raid.

Do you have an open application to another guild at the moment? : No
What you are looking for in a guild and what can you do for OSF? : A fun place to hang around with like minded people, who can benefit from the assets I bring and vice versa.
Where did you hear about Order Of The SilverFlame? : My friend Zeroeden (which I met in FFXIV) was/is raiding with you, so I kinda stealthily slipped into the guild.
Additional info that might be relevant : I started playing WoW during BWL and swore it off with MoP (SoO). I recently got back to the game. I used to play in one of the top german guilds (Apeboys inc) until Sunwell, which I had the great pleasure of clearing most relevant tiers. With wotlk, I rolled in a deathknight on the opposite faction on another server to play with my girlfriend who just started out. I cleared The entirety of the woltk content (except Yogg+1 and LK 25 man heroic) with a semi hardcore group. I cleared all the relevant cataclysm content and started phasing out during MoP, where I slowly lost interest in the game.
Please see my previous main for raid history.
I used to be big into the PvP scene during TBC and wotlk and hope I can find people with similar interest in the guild.

***Only for Raiders' Applications***

Your Class
Guardian Druid

Please give a brief explanation how your spec works (ie. How did you pick your talents, enchants, stat priority, etc.) :
I'm reading the sticked Icy Veins Guides. Sadly I miss some essential legendaries.
I'm still leveling up factions to get my most beneficial enchantes. I didn't really bother looking further into enchants etc, since I was not considering raiding until earlier this weekend. This might change drastically if interest on your end is there.
I'm not exactly sure what else I am supposed to say. Depending on the boss, I'm toying around with Galactic Guardian/Incarnation. I used to look at logs and videos for references and adaptions.

How does your UI look like, do you track your CDs with anything? (Please share a screenshot of your UI in raiding enviroment) :
My UI is not finalized. Besides tracking stuff with WeakAuras and DBM, I'm not using any other addons yet. Grid and a decursive-alternative will be added soon, as well as decent unit frames.
UI for reference (note that it looks the same in raid): https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/382193133582024704/384836726721478656/unknown.png

Do you have a log parse? (ie. Warcraftlogs, World of logs) :
All of them are outdated.

Raid information
Which of these raid times are you available to raid?
Wednesday 19:45 - 23:00 :
Thursday 19:45 - 23:00 :
Sunday 19:45 - 23:00 :
Monday 19:45 - 23:00 :

How many days per week do you want to raid, maximum? :
I'm pretty open, as long as it doesn't interfer with my FFXIV raids. We normally raid 3 times a week, with one additional day during the first week of progression. During farm, we possibly raid only 1-2 times a week.

What raiding experience do you have from Vanilla, BC, WotLK, Cata, MoP? : See explanation above.
What raiding experience do you have in WoD? (please list the bosses downed if you have not completely cleared an instance) : No
What raiding experience do you have in Legion? (please list the bosses downed if you have not completely cleared an instance) : Only 4 bosses in Artorus normal. I mark this down as no for measurement. I watched videos of the remaining bosses tho.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your entire application ? :
I'm leveling a DPS class soon since my initial plan was to do mythic+ runs with some lads and another friend decides to roll tank. I don't really like the druid DPS speccs. If any role is greatly desired in your alt raids, I might consider it as an option to reroll.

Also, my girlfriend (now fiancé) was still playing WoW after I left and decided to have a more intense raiding experience at that point. She's coaching me on how to catch up fast and how some bosses work so I don't gimp around and waste my time doing stupid shit.
