Elendara - Undead Shadow Priest - Talnivarr [Accepted]

Postby Elendara » Wed Jun 01, 2011 18:31

Hi there :) I've recently returned from a short break to find my guild was pretty much dead and would like to continue raiding through Catas content - Enjoy the app!

Personal Information

Real Name: Sam Edwards
Nationality: English
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Occupation: Graduate - currently unemployed

Character information


Character Name: Elendara
Character Class: The spec I am currently playing is Shadow although thus far in Cata my main specs have been either Discipline or Holy. I actually prefer playing as Shadow but this wasn't really an option in my previous guild.

Character Spec: Shadow, and I guess the spec is a standard PvE spec. Can't really go wrong with the Shadow tree due to clearly PvP biased talents.

Dual spec: Discipline PvP - This could easily be changed to PvE healing however.

Playtime: 28 days 6 hours, 14 days at 85 - I rerolled Priest just before Cata hit.

Would you be willing to respec? Yes

Respec options: I have good experience with healing both as Disc and Holy and can use the benefits of each spec very well. As far as gear for these specs is concerned, by far better than my current shadow gear (most of which is primarily healing gear).

Alts:

Warrior: My old main char up to around half way through Wrath, played since the beginning of Vanilla as all specs, almost 300 days played on that one.

Paladin: My main char through most of the WoTLK raiding content. Again, played as all 3 specs to a high level - Around 120 days played on that one.

Countless level 50-70's - Id say my total played time on wow must be close to 750 days.


Primary Profession 1: Herb (Slack i know, working on this ASAP)
Skill Level: 525

Primary Profession 2: Inscription (currently leveling)
Skill Level: 107

If you are a dps applicant, give us an insight to how you would start a fight with your rotation, then leading in to your rinse and repeat one:

The Dps rotation as a SP is fairly simple. Start by casting all 3 of your dots and make sure they are kept up through-out the fight. After dots have been put up, start by casting Mind Flay until you gain a shadow orb (normally after one or two casts) and cast Mind Blast to apply your Mastery (increased DoT damage). This buff lasts 15 seconds so it should be possible to keep this up by making sure you only cast Mind Blast when you have shadow orbs up. Once the boss hits 25% through a double SW:D into the equation.

Links to dps/healing logs: Im afraid i don't have any :(

Screen shot of UI: I feel there isn't really a need for a screenshot here, my UI is standard along with Grid and recount.

Technical equipment
Can your PC run WoW in a raid setting without performance problems?

Normally 60 FPS in the harshest of visual bummings (Algalol intro etc) No problems at all really.

Brief overview of spec of Computer:

GTX560 GeForce gfxc pretty decent but other than that nothing special.

Character history (EXPLAIN IN DETAIL) :
What guilds you have been in? As far as Wrath and Cata are concerned, the only raiding guild I have been in is Tempesta (although that has been on a few realms now) Before that I was in a few guilds as i normally just tried to stay and raid with my mates, which most of the time meant being in nice guilds that cleared content.

What were the reasons for leaving them?
Tempesta has died since the GM (my brother) decided he really didn't need the stress of leading the guild anymore and moved to pastures new. The guild just died after he went and we all moved on. I actually was on a break due to Uni and Work at the time so didnt have much say in what went down. So im currently still in the guild waiting for the right opportunity to move on.

What instances have you cleared, which bosses?

All informtation below is relevant and i will go through what i cleared before nerfs and level cap increases etc.

Vanilla: MC/BWL/ZG/AQ20/Ony Cleared - AQ 40 Up to Huhuran - Didn't see Naxx.

TBC: Kara/SSC/TK/BT/ZA Cleared - SWP up to Felmyst (pre-nerfs)

WotLK: Naxx/OS/Maly/Ony/TOTC/Uld (including Algalol) ICC (all HC apart from LK) Cleared.

Cata: Currently sitting at 5/13 HC as was Tempesta's progress.

Current Reps are all exalted apart from Earthern Ring - Therazane Exalted etc.

Additional Questions
Have you played other MMOs in the past?

Yes I've played a few, SWG (Star Wars Galaxies) was the first, i was fairly young at the time and didn't really get to see much of the end game but it gave me a good early knowledge of how MMOs work.

The only other MMO iv played of note is LOTRO, played this with a few mates and levelled to max and saw some of the end game. I've tried most of the well known MMO's currently going, but none of them interested me like wow does.

What interested you in our guild?

Jikliza my good mate just joined the guild recently. Just seen you around and you seem like a competetive bunch with desire to clear content.

What can you bring to the guild?

I'd say im a good addition to any guild, having played MMO's for near 8 years i have experience with dealing with all types of people and am really good in socially awquard situations, should they crop up. I'd consider myself a very skilled player that rarely fails and when it does happen the same mistake wouldn't happen twice.

Do you understand the concept of SARCASM?

No...please explain?... :)

What do you expect from Madhouse?

A good raiding environment with desire to progress along with a good social side that likes to have wow lives outside raids.

Can you assure that you can play 4 days every week?

Yes.

Why do you play WoW?

To use my gaming skills to help accomplish goals that I couldn't on my own, and to have good times :)

What do you want to achieve?

Clearing the content that Cata has to offer and making mates along the way.

Can you paindt?

Wasn't sure what this part meant, sorry!

Can you farm/obtain enough gold to have enough for repair bills, maximum consumables and best possible enchants and gems for your raiding gear?

Yes, no problems.

Have you applied to other guilds so far,if so why were you denied and why were we your choice now instead of the first?

Nope! You were my only choice when i'd heard my mate Jikliza applied here.

Can you fluently communicate on Ventrilo, socialise with other people?

Yes, I think its important to a guilds integrity.

On a side note... Id like to point out before it probably gets brought up that my gear isn't idea for Shadow and i do know this. Gear isn't everything in wow although i do know its importance. Im working on it before and after I type this however and would hope that this doesn't distract from what i can bring to your guild.

Sorry about the wall of text, but thanks for reading.

Your gear isn't really the best we could hope, however your experience, even tho you've killed most bosses only once, is decent.

Like Tir said, you'll hear back from our resident priest as soon as he decides to wake up and read it over.

Till then, here's a funny riddle:

So there was this horse, he walks into a bar, buys a beer, drinks a beer, goes out and dies. Why did the horse die?

He raided with us for one day and you have played with him before. Why wouldn't you do the same thing as well?
