First name: Chris
About me: Well what to say I'm currently working at a company called Remsdaq as a Senior Software Engineer working on access control systems, I live with my fiancé Laura (hope that's the right one :) ) in the UK near Manchester.
Armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darksorrow/Sheld%C3%B3r/simple
Main specc: Holy
First Tier - Void Tendrils not really anything useful for healing this tier just for some basic cc.
Second Tier - Body and Soul - Again more of a personal preference tier I like this for the added movement speed not only for my self but also other raid members when the fight needs it.
Third Tier - Mindbender - 1 minute CD ability to get mana back IMO the best talent to choose in this tier so long as its used on cd and first use is at around 260k mana its a huge boost to mana regen also combined with hymn of hope it provides even more mana return.
Fourth Tier - Angelic Bulwark - The survivability tier here its a choice between desperate prayer and Angelic Bulwark i go for this as the shield it provides gives me time to heal myself up so I just prefer this.
Off specc: Shadow / Disc
Major: Renew / Lightspring / Prayer of Mending
Minor: nothing useful here all vanity stuff
What is your rotation, and why do u use it exactly?
Healing rotation well i guess there isn't really one more priority and reacting to the current situation however I do use the following link for reference.
Relevant addons for your role
Which addons do u use that helps you perform your role? (Dot tracker, hot tracker, cd tracker, etc etc etc)
How do u prio stats from gear/enchants/gems?
Spirit > Intellect > Haste (4721) > Mastery > Crit
Empowered require raiders to have/get 2 max level professions that benefit their mainspec in raids.
Which professions do u have atm, and/or which profession will u adopt to better benefit your raid mainspec?
(currently undecided on second profession its been recently levled starting at 80 (SOR hax)
Tailoring / Blacksmithing will be the second I suspect
Killed in Vanilla (@60): MC Cleared (not on current char played rogue back then and lock)
Tbc @ 70: Kara Cleared
Wotlk/ICC @ 80: ICC Cleared (bar lich king if I remember right)
Cataclysm experience @85: This is where I took over as GM of my previous guild Aquilla.
Firelands Cleared normal
BOT Cleared normal
BWD Cleared normal
COW Cleared normal
DS Cleared + 3 HC (Lost a few key players to the real world / bigger guilds slowed our progression)
Current MoP experience:
(We'd like to know which instances you progressed in, and which you got after it was no longer the last tier also)
MSV 6/6 Normal Both holy and shadow
HOF 2/6 Normal Both holy and shadow
Which guild(s) were u in?
Good question cant remember names of some of them but since level 70 I have been in Aquilla.
Why did u leave your last guild?
Well Until about month or two ago I was actually GM but I resigned due to a few disagreements on raid selections long story short I wanted to replace people not pulling their weight in raids a lot of other officers didn't agree because sed players had been in the guild for a long time, however we continued raiding and recently stopped for the christmas break however it now looks as though we will not be raiding again a few key members have lost interest, so im now looking to move on else where.
What can we gain by having u as a member?
I am experienced player in both holy and shadow specs both of which without sounding like a douch i feel im pretty good at, I pick things up quickly in terms of raid tactics etc and always read up on fights i don't know.
As i have been GM of my previous guild for quite some time I have done a large amount of raid leading so im not afraid to offer my opinion or afraid to be talking on vent which IMO is important to boss kills lots of communication is key.
Also as mentioned above my current guild have stopped raiding we do have some very good players which still play so i may also be able to convince them to join if they are needed.
Empowered raid 3 nights a week (monday -> Wednesday -> Sunday How many raids can you attend a week?
For me as long as I know in advance I can raid all 3 days just need to let the boss know the (the fiancée) and then make it up to her by taking here out another night!
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?
Of course that's not a problem
Your Empowered friends
Do u know anyone in Empowered who can attest to your skills?
Not that I Know of.
Bandwidth, ping, lag probs, wow freezes, fps in raids?
Generally 45ms or less and 45 + fps
How do you prepare for new raids/raid bosses that u havent killed before?
Check up on tactics FATBOSS is a personal favourite but if there is a key part to a particular fight i like to look around a number of different tactics.
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?
Not getting invited to a raid is part and parcel of being in a competitive raid group and lets be honest competition keeps you on your toes and makes the game more enjoyable.
I guess there's a number of reasons not to be invited to a raid rotation previous performance giving someone else a chance.
All are acceptable reasons its just nice to know why for example if its due to previous performance then I can go away and work on the faults.
World of logs
If u have world of logs link that shows your performance on some fights, plx link it here.
I have a lot of logs for shadow on my other priest Blínder but I don't believe I have any for this char.
link to my other priest.
Where did u hear that we are recruting?
