• 1. IRL Info

a. First name: Niko
b. Nationality: Finland
c. Age: 21
d. About me: Basic finnish guy who loves to drink beer, sauna, play world of warcraft and have fun. I am currently unemployed so my attendance will be 100% at the raids.

2. Character Info
a Name: Títjob
b Class: Druid
c Race: Worgen
d Armory link:

3. Specs
Main specc: (explain why u have specced like u have in this talent tree)
Guradian tank:

First tier talents are all about mobility and I have chosen Wild charge because it helps to engage adds and bosses in most encounters.

Second tier talent renewal helps alot as a tank also using it with a Might of ursac provides almost 450k self heal skill.

Third tier talent is all about CC and I have chosen Faerie Swarm for my current spec. 50% movement speed slow without rage cost and with that not losing any survibility. I would also consider typhoon on some encounters.

Fourth tier talent Incarnation: Son of Ursoc provides nice amount of spamable rage which is important to get more survibility by spamming Savage Defense and Frenzied Regeneration. Also it provides insane amount of threat generation if used as offensive ability. Removing cooldown of your all attacks is insane: Swipe spam is back!

Fifth tier is again about control and I have chosen Ursol's vortex for it. (I have to chance it a bit in some encounters). Nothing special about this talent except it helps kiting some of the adds.

sixth tier is important and most funniest that makes your play style very different.
Natures Vigil would provide some off healing when needed and high amount of dmg boost when needed.
However I have chosen Hearth of the wild for my talent tree 6% more of each stat is huge amount of plus for geting more stamina and agility (=crit) Also in most of the encounters its use effect is very useful: If needed tank swap you can jump to kit and do high amount of burst dmg and If needed more survibility you can just start spamming Rejuvenation crazy to yourself and to raid for helping healers. (I have noticed that 40k+ hot ticks help alot in most of the encounters).

Off specc: (explain why u have specced like u have in this talent tree)
I won't be planning to make long story about this I am currently working on off spec Balance spec to play LFR's and for the lulz. (probably will be making restoration on this later on)

4. Glyphs
Major: Glyph of Might of Ursoc, Glyph of Stampeding Roar, Glyph of Maul.
Reasons: Might of ursoc gives huge amount of survibility.
Stampeding roar increases the radious of your ROAR!
Glyph of maul gives "cleave effect" to your Maul.

Minor: Nothing to do with the raiding nowdays so I wont be explaining more of them.

5. Rotation
What is your rotation, and why do u use it exactly?
As a tank there is more about thinking the situational uses. Like when to pop survi cd's and soft cooldowns. However I will be explaining some of it.

a) Opener: In most boss encounters its rational to start with berserker pop or Incarnation: Son of Ursoc to get your survibility on and making nice amount of threat to boss. Also this way you can provide more time for your healers to take better healing positions and you don't have to worry about losing the threat except to fury warrios.
b) Singletarget: Make sure to have Lacerate 3x debuff on, Thrash on, Faerie Swarm on and remaining to use survibility soft cooldowns: Frenzied Regeneration and Savage Defense.
c) Multi-target/aoe: Swipe, Trash, Survibility soft cooldowns on.
6. Relevant addons for your role: Omen threat meter and DBM. ( I am also using moer but nothing more relevent.)
Which addons do u use that helps you perform your role? (Dot tracker, hot tracker, cd tracker, etc etc etc)
None. ( Easy enough to track on enemy ui)

7. Stat priority
How do u prio stats from gear/enchants/gems?
I prio stats: Hit cap and expertise soft cap 7.5% > Crit > haste > expertise > mastery. Reason for this is that in Mist of pandarian they chanced Mastery to provide more armour % and it stacks very poorly so no need to stack more of it. Stamina will be provided from gear enough for all of the enocunters. Crit is the number one at the moment because of the rage genaration. Makes you to spam survi soft cooldowns more often and mainteim them on as must as posible.
8. Professions
I have Enchanting and inscription at the moment for geting my gold cap soon.
There is very few reasons to chance them ofcourse geting BS and Jc would be better but the stat differents is very little.

9. Raiding experience
Killed in Vanilla (@60): - Started playing ( mostly pvp)
Tbc @ 70: Started raiding with few of my irl friends in the last minutes of TBC so poor some tempest keep raids and Black temple nothing special ( Played as resto shaman mostly)
Wotlk/ICC @ 80: Naxx 25/ 10, ulduar 25/10, skipped Toc time and raided a bit ICC before nerfs. Raided as warrior tank.
Cataclysm experience @85: Cleared BWD, Bastion, firelands and some Dragon soul ( very pooring raid). Also few Heroic clears in start of the cataclysm before first nerf patches. As a guardian tank.
Current MoP experience: I havent raided much yet went for 6/6 msv with irl friends at the start of the expansion.
(We'd like to know which instances you progressed in, and which you got after it was no longer the last tier also)
10. Guild history
Which guild(s) were u in? - In wotlk - ctaclysm times I have raided in three guilds: Mechanism, Revolutions and sick life.
Why did u leave your last guild? (I don't count leveling guilds in this) I left my last raiding guild sick life which I was hosting as GM because lack of Irl members. We were 9 irl members and 6 went to military.

11. Why you?
What can we gain by having u as a member?
I will offer skillful tanking, 100% attendance, humor and progression for your raids.
12. Raid times
Empowered raid 3 nights a week (monday -> Wednesday -> Sunday How many raids can you attend a week? Every last one of them. Also eager to raid if you expand your raids for other days also 6 raiding days in week is my maxium tho.
13. Activity/informing:
Its in empowered rules that u/we always inform on forum if we cant show on a raid day. If invited to the guild, will u always inform when u cant show on a raid day? Only reason if I won't be geting on raids would be some special holidays or if family member would be dead. ( Will be informed on forums if this kind of an thing happens: I hope not)

14. Your Empowered friends
Do u know anyone in Empowered who can attest to your skills?
Not in guild.
15. Additional information?
Additional information that u feel is relevant for the application.
Funny guy from Finland who likes to raid with people who have nice amount of humor and are mature enough.
Also I migrated reasently from Frostwhisper for pvp reasons (planning to get easy gladiator title on 5.2 with monk)

16. UI picture
Link picture of your raid ui
Not an raid ui but image about basic ui with target and focus.
in raids chat panel and bags are disabled and there will be small raid ui on right corner. Also don't mind about the movie on second screen. :)

17. Internet connection
Bandwidth, ping, lag probs, wow freezes, fps in raids?
Fps is useless after 60 so I use it there.
100M internet speed.

18. Preparation

How do you prepare for new raids/raid bosses that u havent killed before?
-Basicly I will just read about their abilitys and some succesful tactics also If there is any uploaded boss encounter videos (like old tankspot or fatboss mods or richery)
19. Behavior
we has some simple rules and codes of conduct. We expect all members to know of these rules, and to act accordingly. These are to make sure we all are on the same page, and that we don't offend ppl out of ignorance or spite. Also, how do u handle not getting invited to a raid?

I am very patient player and I will understand that trials wont be geting on every raids at start so no hate on that part. Also I have very very long temper.
I will accept your code of conduict.

20. World of logs
If u have world of logs link that shows your performance on some fights, plx link it here.
Nothing currently maybe some old logs may be found on name: ruosterumpu.
21. Where did u hear that we are recruting?

I heard wingria yealling at the trade chat that you are currently looking for more players for group 2 and future 25 man raid. So I went and checked your website and chatted a bit with wingria and decided to make application and try my luck geting in.

Firstly thanks for applying, I had positive vibes from you when we spoke ingame! Very nice thorough application and you seem to have good knowledge about the class. I know you showed interest in applying for dps and you spoke about applying with other classes as tank but it's nice to see you applied with your Druid. Guardian tanks are highly underrated atm. During some encounters we do ask that one of our tanks go dps so that will be an option for you if accepted.

Vouch from me so good luck with your app!

Yes there is very little difference between Feral and guardian gear nowdays when they removed dodge stat from gear (except t14 guardian sholders). So rolling as feral on some encounters is okey or as boomkin when I finnish my boomkin gear.

So rolling as dps on some encounters is fine by me.

Hello Niko.
Very nice application where you show extreamly well knowledge of your class, means youve done alot of theory-crafting - well done on that point.

Atm we are in a situation with having some slacking tanks, and a trial.
That means, i would love to give you a try in our main grp, but giving you this also means that you have to do your best during trial periode.

I mainly see the tank possition to be the most important, with exellent tanks a guild can go amazingly long even without very good players (not in our case ofc, we are pro ;)).

This means your accepted, whisper any officer for an invite :)
