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: I start of with Flame Shock, followed by totems, followed by Unleash Elements, followed by Elemental Mastery, Blood Fury (Racial), Fiery Quintessence (Trinket), followed by Lava Burst, Lightening Bolts, instant Lava Bursts when Lava Flows procs, using Lava Burst when avalible, spamming Lightening Bolts, refreshing Flame Shock when needed, as well as replacing totems with new ones ;)

Character history (EXPLAIN IN DETAIL) : Reached level 80 in Warth of the Lich King, joinned guild Ransom soon to become a 25m Kingslayer on 6/11/10, shortly quit WoW after and have been playing again for the past 3 months. The first month i was busy getting to grips of the game again, learning new things, and leveling three 80s to 85. I didnt really have any time for a guild and knew i wasnt ready to even attempt raiding for awhile, infact i refused because i knew i would need alot better gear first. One i had full dungeon heroic gear, i bravely attempted to join pugs... after 1000 refusals and all hope was gone, jackpot i got into a pug by begging i knew tactics even though i hadnt got achievement . Was a long slow process but eventually pug after pug i manage to get 4/4 in BoT, and 3/6 in BwD with the help of randomers. Soon after i decided to look for a guild, where i found Innherred Gaming who i spent 1 month with and managed to down 3/4 in BoT and 5/6 in BwD 1/2 in TotFW, who saddly recently turned into a social guild out of the blue. So i thought what the heck use the guild finder ^^ and walah lucky me i got a reply from Two Faced Jokers and the threw me straight in on a trial basis. Whilst in the guild for the past two weeks we i managed to clear BoT twice with two Heroic Halfus kills, and same with BwD with a Heroic Chimareon kill, Heroic Atramedes kill and a 5% Heroic Maloriak attempt, along with 2/2 in TotFW. But sdaaly today i was informed my raid spot had been removed for one of the GM's close friend which didnt phase me really since i was still a trial, but atleast i got some good experience in the guild as of today i have 12/12 normal and 3/13 heroic to my name thanks to them =). I then joinned Madhouse raided with them on and off for 4 weeks most days there wernt enough people to raid so it would get called off, but the days we did raid they went quite well. I managed to get 2/5 hc, 1/2 hc totfw, and 5/6 bwd with a best attempt of 15% heroic nefarian. Recently the raiding has turned into a single 10m raid last few weeks where ive not been needed since we lack the numbers and people keep leaving for no reason ect. And today i was just notified that the guild will now become a 10m raiding guild for firelands, so ofcourse i wont get invited some weeks which is why ive decided its time to move on to a different guild. I joinned School Bus and raided Firelands with them in the second group for a few months, after clearing it 5-6 times SB ran out of fuel and people started leaving or didnt have time anymore university ect. So once again im currently seeking a new active guild for raiding.

What guilds you have been in? Innherred Gaming, Two Faced Jokers, Madhouse, School Bus
What were the reasons for leaving them? Innherred Gaming became a social guild, and Two Faced Jokers replaced my raid spot for a close friend (understandable since im just a trial), Madhouse became a 10man guild, School Bus became inactive.
What instances have you cleared, which bosses? Vanila WoW: All

Cataclysm: 12/12 normal, 8/13 hc Halfus, V+T, Magmaw, Omnitron, Maloriak, Chimaeron, Atramedes, Conclave Heroic, + a 15% Nefarion attempt.

Edit: "I then joinned Madhouse raided with them" - Surely this should be read "with you" but I'll let you off since its a copy/paste from a Numen app. Even if we were recruiting a modicum of effort in changing blatant mistakes around would be appreciated.
