The Player
Vesuvius--Death Knight (frost)--85

IRL Name:
Ilya Glukhikh




English is our main language of communication, please rate your English fluency (listening and verbal) out of 10:
I think it would be 9

Who do you know in Last Legion that could sponsor you both in terms of ability and attitude?
Choke knows me a little, we talk on skype a good bit and play LoL, Ismael knows me well and knows my ability in raids.

How did you find out about us?
I found out about Last Legion from my friend Ismael. When he told me about this guild i checked out this site and i'm impressed.

Name your previous guilds and give a brief explanation of why you left those you spent a significant amount of time with:
Refined i spent almost a year with, it started to decline... rapidly in terms of raiding and lack of effort. In TBC i spend alot of time with Scarred which disbanded because of guild master falling out with officers.

Describe yourself in three words:
Friendly Dedicated Funny

Are you going afk / vacation within one month of joining us?:
No, but ill be sure to tell you if anything comes up.

Your Character

Why did you give your character the name it has?:
Vesuvius is a volcano, It sounded cool :)

What do you like best about your character?:
I love the Death Knight class in general. Its the longest time played character i have, with a lot of mounts and achievements.

What raid buffs does your class/spec bring to a raid?
Death Knights bring a lot of dmg/dps. In raids i do 10-20k dps and usually end up first in dmg. My frost spec bring +10% haste rating for melee. And my Unholy spec brings increased spell dmg.

Please link your armoury page here:

List any significant alts (name, class/spec, level):
I dont have any other lvl 85 but i do have a hunter NE lvl 76 and a NE druid lvl 72. They are not really significant because my Death Knight is my favourite

What is your preferred PvE raiding talent spec? Why?:
Well up to this point it is Frost 7/31/3 i recently made a duel wield spec unholy 7/3/31 which works pretty well i think.

What is your Dual Spec? Is it geared for 85 heroics?
I recently made a duel wield spec unholy 7/3/31 which works pretty well i think. Its basically the same gear as frost so yeah :)

List your primary and secondary professions, please mention any notable epic or rare recipes:
Primary-Engineering,Mining (both maxed)
Secondary-First aid,Cooking (first aid is maxed)
Nothing really epic but i can make repair bots which speed up raid :)

How many Cataclysm exalted reputations do you have? Please list them.
I am exalted with:
Guardians of Hyjal

Your Raiding Experience:
My raid experience is good. I reaided since Vanilla for eg. ZG,AQ. TBC raiding was pleasant for me with completed Gruul,Kara, SSC. WoTLK raiding went good also with LK completed fully, Naxx completed fully, a lot of Ulduar also. In CATA i killed Halfus,Magmaw,Omnitron,Valiona,Atramedes.

What is your best Cataclysm raid achievement?
Killed Halfus, Magmaw, Atremedes, Omnitron. Topped dmg on most of them during first kills. And my interrupts were crucial during omnitron. At Magmaw i had 32k dps.

What kind of raid experience before Cata do you have? (include any references to Pre and Post BC; and please be as specific as possible, "I went to Molten Core once" is not enough):

As i said before i have been raiding since Vanilla so my raid experience is posted up above :)

What is your highest recorded HPS / TPS / DPS in a 25 man raid (or 10 man)?
32k dps at magmaw. With heroism and most Cd's popped.

List your main spell rotation / priority to do your job on a raid or 85heroic?
Icy touch-Plague strike-Frost strike-Blood tap-Obliderate and then whatever is available. My mind freeze interrupt is free to use with no runepower only 10 sec CD so it doesnt interrupt my rotation.

How do you prepare for a raid?
Repair, Know tactics, Buy food/flasks, Get repair bots prepaired. Make sure nobody interrupts me XD

What do you dislike most about raiding in World of Warcraft and why?
I dont really dislike anything tbh. Multiple wipes dont bother me :)

What days/times are you available to raid (list all)?:
I looked up your raid times and they suit me perfectly, i'm an active player so you will get sick of seeing me online XD lol

And finally

What do you bring to our raid team and community?
(this is your opportunity to provide us with extra information to set you apart from other applications and cover an issue not mentioned above):

I bring a lot of humour, i love to help out guildies :) but i know when to be serious during raids, i have a never give up attitude. My repair bots speed up wipes and i can also make goblin barbecue which is not that great lol but still does the job.

Oh and >:)

greetings and welcome to the forum

i have a a few questions

1, u have 5 items all missing enchant some are cheep on ah and all help to ur dps as a raider u will be expected to have all items gemmed, enchanted and such

2, u have gemmed and forged haste where af frost mastery and cri and both better stats for raiding
inm still in process of switching from unholy to frost so spent far to much time researching it. look at i found this helped alot

3, dw unholy is a awsome spec what do u think of the changes blizz have planned for next patch

4, glyphs are ok i believe glyph of hb is better then icytouch saves having to re apply frost fever as it auto refreshes on a free hb blast

a secong dk in the guild is good as im the only one raiding but must warn u that we have just started raiding as a guild and have taken alot of new recruits and all are keen to get raid spots so it will be slow going at first. i hope u will be patient with this if u get a trial spot

good luck with the app


#3802283 Jan 22, 2011 at 11:09 PM
1. Yes i am missing enchants, i will get them easily so dw. I have all items gemed.

2. Haste is the best stat for frost deathknight tbh, crit died out with cataclysm and frost procs 100% crit chance anyway. I played frost since WoTLK, i dont go by Elitistjerks because i have my opinion of the class which i know alot about because its my favourite class in the game :) . Frost is about attack speed=haste.

3. Good changes but i still think that frost does more dmg in the end because of the bursts it does and it really doesnt have a rotation because its constant attacking because of Haste stack.

4. I prefer icytouch because with glyph of HB you refresh frost fever BUT i refresh all my DoTs anyway and i spread them with pestilence. So overall i prefer the 20% dmg boost from icytouch. Having 20% dmg increase is better than refreshing something that i will be refreshing anyway.

Yes i can understand that i will have to wait before i can get some raiding time but its ok :) i will always be back up and will always be happy to help out :)

Thank you very much for the advice :)

Sometimes your personal knowledge about a class is not enough, that`s why we`ve got professional sites like EJ and nerds that do math and spend gazillions of hours at the practice dummy to sort out the best rotation and such.

So I strongly advise you to give a glance from time to time to elitist jerks, you never know what you might find interesting and new. It`s impossible for one to know everything, there are always new things to untangle and comprehend. ;)


P.S - Ismael apply for membership on the top right of the site, so you can get access to members` area.

ive not had time to look propperly but i would suggest trying 2h frost as ur stacking haste should work better for u for big frost strikes a obliterates.

all i have read on frost and looked dk players from top guilds, they all point towards frost dw stack master-crit-haste in that order.

im not trying to tell u how to play or what to do.

the best part of any char is doing what suits u best.


#3806467 Jan 23, 2011 at 08:13 PM
I actually tried 2h frost, Its BIG crits and big numbers pop up BUT its very slow. The dps output and dmg is not even near the same as duel wield, frost is about speed and stacking haste makes the dps and dmg go up because the attacking becomes faster and frost talents procs like killing machine therefore there is no need for crit rating due to haste stack. *Faster you attack----More crits are able to proc*

Mastery works better for unholy. And as i said before crit rating is not used much at all anymore, frosts killing machine procs crit strikes and onholy uses dots.

Yes i do speak russian :). And thank you Choke :) I am indeed from Russia, but ive been living in ireland for a while now :)

I read up on elitists jerks, learned some things, and changed around my rotation which improved my dps even more. But some tips about the death knights post is its a bit outdated. To be honest though, i am a person that follows my own little way, now im not saying that i dont take others advice. I try lots of things. Today i tried that 2h frost spec, it is good, but when field testing it in heroics, it only did around 10k dps max. Then i tried to compare to DW frost there was a huge difference, doing 13-16k dps.

I do things my own little way but when i do them i try and perfect everything :) aka spending hours on training dummy/youtube videos.
