Asharith
The Player

IRL Name: Fredrik

Age: 17 (Yes, I know I am younger than what you prefer, but as I consider myself mature in general I decided to give this a shot anyway)

Gender: Male

Location: Norway

Do you own an authenticator?: Yes, I have the iPhone authenticator

Are you in a guild at the moment, if so, are they aware of your application with us?
At this time I am currently in a guild that I am the gm of. About a month ago, some friends and I decided to try to make a norwegian raiding guild here on nordrassil, but as we've had a hard time finding enough decent players willing to start off from scratch, we are now disbanding.

English is our main language of communication, please rate your English fluency (listening and verbal) out of 10:
I got an A in english so I'm going to rate my skills in that area as 10 of 10 :D

Who do you know in Last Legion that could sponsor you both in terms of ability and attitude?
Unfortunately, I do not know any of your current members, but I do hope to get to know some of you soon:)

How did you find out about us?
Wowprogress!

Name your previous guilds and give a brief explanation of why you left those you spent a significant amount of time with:
When I first started of playing World of Warcraft, I joined a 25man raiding guild called Crimson Eagles on Balnazzar, I was a noob at the time, so I didn't get to raid much more than totc25 normals with them, but after 6 months or so, they disbanded due to the officers leaving for a better guild.
After having convinced some friends of mine to start playing, I started the guild Echos, on Frostwhisper, which during it's uptime cleared up to 6/12 in Icc10 HC, but as some of the core raiders got bored of the game we didn't get much further than that.
After Cataclysm was released I transferred to the Horde side of Nordrassil to join some friends in the guild RAW, whom I cleared most of the previous tier with, but due to the guildleader having a quite crappy attitude my friends and I decided to leave, and later on faction change to Alliance.

After a couple of days here I got a spot in Mystic, and in my roughly 2 weeks as a raider there I cleared 12/12 on normal difficulty.
But then my friends convinced me that making a norwegian raiding guild would be absolutely awesome. So I left Mystic and gave Escaping Reality a try. And that didn't go that well ...


Describe yourself in three words:
loyal, dedicated, focused

Are you going afk / vacation within one month of joining us?:
Yes, I am going to Greece 22 of July, but unless I get beaten to death during the riots going on down there I'll be back within 2 weeks. And then I'm all yours :p

Your Character

Why did you give your character the name it has?:
Quite random actually, it just crossed my mind when I named it

What do you like best about your character?:
The numerous options I have as a hybrid class, I just love being able to doing more than just spanking the boss. Lay on Hands when healers are in need, Hand of Protection when someone overaggroes, Hand of Salvation when someone smash their keybord too eagerly or just throw out heals now and then. I simply enjoy my class in general.

What raid buffs does your class/spec bring to a raid?
Kings/Might, several auras, Replenishment and uber dps :>

Please link your armoury page here:
http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/nordrassil/Asharith/simple

List any significant alts (name, class/spec, level):
The only one worth mentioning at max level is my Arcane/Fire mage Kaledy, I am currently gearing it up for raiding.

What is your preferred PvE raiding talent spec? Why?:
My preferred PvE specc is retribution. Why I like it the most? I guess that's just because I like the abilities and the idea of dealing a lot of damage, and that I've become very good at it.

What is your Dual Spec? Is it geared for 85 heroics?
Untill lately, my offspecc have also been retribution, though more adjusted to PvP combat. But I am currently working on my tank gear and I am 2 trinkets and 1 ring away from being ready to tank firelands if needed.

List your primary and secondary professions, please mention any notable epic or rare recipes:
Primary: Blacksmithing and Jewelcrafting
Secondary: Archaeology


How many Cataclysm exalted reputations do you have? Please list them.
Exalted:
Baradins Wardens
Guardians Of Hyjal
Ramkahen
Therazane




Your Raiding Experience

What is your best Cataclysm raid achievement?
I'll have to say Defender Of A Shattered World - 12/12 normal

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) :
I gave you a sneek peek at this in an earlier question, but I'll give you a summary.

WRATH OF THE LICH KING:
Totc 10/25 - clear
Icc10 - clear
Icc10 HC - 6/12
Icc25 - 5/12




What is your highest recorded HPS / TPS / DPS in a 25 man raid (or 10 man)?
As you may see HERE, I managed to pull of a 40k burst on a dummy lately, I'm sure I have done better in raids, but I can't really remember any spesific number at this time.

List your main spell rotation / priority to do your job on a raid or 85heroic?
Due to the unreliable proccs from Divine Purpose and The Art of War, retridins don't have a solid rotation, but the rotation for my current Mastery level is as follow: Inq > TV > HoW > Exo > CS > J > HW > Cons (When Avenging Wrath is active, Exo is over TV and HoW)


How do you prepare for a raid?
If we are to meet an encounter I have never experienced before, I read up on taccs on 25man.com and check the Learn2raid videos untill I know that I got everything covered.
Other than that I make sure I am fully repaired, got the flasks/food I need before I meet up outside the raid before the invites goes out.


What do you dislike most about raiding in World of Warcraft and why?
What I dislikes the most is to see people failing over and over again at executing simple tasks such as walking out of the fire or avoiding slime pools. It just kills my will to proceed.

What days/times are you available to raid (list all)?:
I am available from Sunday to Thursday, as I like having friday and saturday off for social reasons.


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)
What I can bring you, is a player that's allways prepared, focused and willing to wipe for hours to get a kill. I haven't played my class as long as the veteran players from the vanilla days have, but during my time as a wow player I have spent a LOT of time online, and I have learned more or less everything there is to know about my specc and class. In addition to my character I bring an easy-going guys that rarely , if ever, nerdrage ^^

Sorry for any typos, it's 5:40 AM..

Looking forward to hear from you guys!
Regards , Fredrik

Knew I had forgot something..

Made a Gear Profile showing my current Protection gear, as you see I am in need of new trinkets, new ring, upgraded legs and some enchants/gems. Those will all be fixed shortly, this was just to show you guys it's current state : )

Wow an early/late app. Thanks for taking the time to fill it out.

We have a lot of active palas at the moment, so should you trial position a raid spot would be hard earned. Im sure some nice pala will be along to comment on your char.

Thanks again

Seems to have spent some time working out reforges properly and working out the best order of attacks possible to fit hit gear. His gear looks pretty good to me taking into account the progress he's currently at. I'll leave any further comments to actual ret pala's ;-)

Hi, Nice App Overall and Welcome to the forums,


In your Application you said that you are "Loyal, Dedicated, Focused" However if you read further up the application you have put that you were in Mystic for 2 Weeks then left and how long were you in "Raw" on the horde side for?

Moving onto your Gear -:
You have 19 Exp Unbuffed, Yet you use the Seal of Truth Glyph giving 10 Exp, This Puts you on 29 well over the cap and which could be reforged into other stats or you could get 26 exp w/o the Seal of Truth Glyph and replace it with the 5% CS Crit Chance Glyph.

Your Bracers are Pvp, BWD is so easy to PuG now and you can get the ones from Omnotron Defense System which are 10 times better.

You Do Not have 4pc T11, This will boost your dps by Insane amounts, as Nef is so easy to do theses days as well I would recommend doing this for the Tier Helm.

Your Glyphs -:

You use Glyph of Lay on Hands over Glyph of Rebuke, why? If you are needed to Interrupt during an AoE dps Phase you will have next to no mana hence not being able to do the interrupt.

Thanks again for the application,


Kealix <3

Mystic: The reason why I left Mystic so early on was because I decided to prioritize real life friends that I have known for years, over som rather random people I had barely got to know.

Raw: As I wrote earlier, my friends and I left because the gm had an inappropriate attitude towards his guildmembers. He was the kind of guy that went into nerdrage for minor mistakes, and if anything went wrong, it was never his fault, no matter what. We just didn't like being in a guild where our ideas on how to do things were declined in every possible situation. (keep in mind that the guild disbanded months ago so what I'm writing here will not hurt the guild in any way.)


Moving onto your Gear -:
You have 19 Exp Unbuffed, Yet you use the Seal of Truth Glyph giving 10 Exp, This Puts you on 29 well over the cap and which could be reforged into other stats or you could get 26 exp w/o the Seal of Truth Glyph and replace it with the 5% CS Crit Chance Glyph.
I was expecting that one to show up :p Yes, I know I am over that expertise cap due to my newest gear upgrades, and as you may see on my reforging I am at this time completely unable to reforge it down to cap.
The reason why I haven't removed the glyph and re-done my reforging is because my expertise amount will be balanced again when I have replaced the PvP bracers.


Your Bracers are Pvp, BWD is so easy to PuG now and you can get the ones from Omnotron Defense System which are 10 times better.
Yes, I am well aware of the bracers, it's just those omnoms that refuse to drop the wrists whenever I am arround :<

You Do Not have 4pc T11, This will boost your dps by Insane amounts, as Nef is so easy to do theses days as well I would recommend doing this for the Tier Helm.
I spent a lot of trying trying to get that last piece during the tier11 period, but I never did. I must admit that after 4.2 was released I didn't give it much more thought, and simple moved on towards firelands.


You use Glyph of Lay on Hands over Glyph of Rebuke, why? If you are needed to Interrupt during an AoE dps Phase you will have next to no mana hence not being able to do the interrupt.
The LoH glyph have been more usefull for me overall, that's why I am currently having it. But all glyphs are learned and I carry dust all the time, so swapping mid-raid is never an issue.

The green text made my eyes bleed.

Apart from that, a well completed app.

Can you contact an officer, say, Clikz or Nadders and hit the boss target dummy for 3-5 minutes. Post your results here.

Here are the three points that will make or break your app.

1. Your age. Maturity is required. We have enough male, young teenage bucks that have little respect in the guild as it is without adding more fuel to that fire. Proof of maturity is often found by going on a long, extended trial. Why the hell were you awake at 5:40am writing guild applications? Is this normal behaviour for you?

2. Your class/spec. We have lots of retris, melee, 38+ online during summer is quite an achievement in my experience. You may have to take a side seat or go on alt runs 10mans until spots come up on the 25s. You're 17, so college begins soon. Come Sept you might be less active when you go back to school. Kealix point is valid on interrupts. Rebuke is nearly 3k mana, if you're given interrupt duty, you'd better be in position to do it. At 17, you will have little experience of large scale raids on a consistent basis.

3. No. More. Green. Text. Thanks

1.Can you contact an officer, say, Clikz or Nadders and hit the boss target dummy for 3-5 minutes. Post your results here

-I allready did this in my original application by linking a WoL log from a ~3,5min dummy fight.

2. Why the hell were you awake at 5:40am writing guild applications? Is this normal behaviour for you?

-At that time I was at a local LAN party, and as I am having my summer vacation these days I do stay up late now and then to play games. I don't see anything wrong with that.

3. Your class/spec. We have lots of retris, melee, 38+ online during summer is quite an achievement in my experience. You may have to take a side seat or go on alt runs 10mans until spots come up on the 25s. You're 17, so college begins soon. Come Sept you might be less active when you go back to school. Kealix point is valid on interrupts. Rebuke is nearly 3k mana, if you're given interrupt duty, you'd better be in position to do it. At 17, you will have little experience of large scale raids on a consistent basis.

-It is of course up to you to determine whether or not you have any need for my specc, and I don't mind having a bench spot until I have proved to you that I am fully capable of carrying my own weight.

-Yes, School will of course have an impact on my playtime, but it will not collide with your raidtimes. IF I for some reason should be unable to attend to a raid due to a major test the next day or something like that, I will of course let the raidleader know so in good time beforehand.

-As I said earlier: All glypsh are learned and I carry dust all the time. If I was charged with such a task I would simply switch glyphs.

4. No. More. Green. Text. Thanks

-The reason for the green text was to make my application more readable.

Thanks for taking the time and interest to apply with us.

As we discussed on Saturday, a few more days for officers to review your application was necessary.

Nevertheless, wishing you all the best with your search for a guild home.

Thanks :)
