Yes, as protection as not geared or raid experienced as holy in WOLK.

What glyphs do you use and why?
Refer to armory for current glyphs, some will change depending on encounters (have learnt nearly all ret/prot glyphs), use them as they're the best dps glyphs atm, for mana efficiency and as they suit my playing style.

Played time on your character:
Over 100 days as a vanilla character.

Blacksmith - crafting & since wolk for the additional slot sockets.
Mining - smelting & since wolk for stam bonus for OS & little extra survivability.

30's, Male.

Melbourne, Australia.

Dezire's progression is slightly better than my previous raiding guild, raiding times suit my timezone, have previously been in a guild with and raided with Aelite and his mad skills + will be able to finish my LK kill quest line.

Are you able to take criticism without causing a fuss?
Yes, if it's genuine criticism and not abuse which i have little tolerance for.

How much longer do you see yourself playing WoW?
Until Deathwing is dead, possibly longer.

Raiding Information
Can you make all our raid nights? Currently we raid Mon/Wed/Thurs/Sun 7pm-11:00 Server Time. (If not, please explain):
Can make most raid nights, and will inform when unable to attend as raid on other characters with mates at times, although progression can be prioritized.

During raid, is it likely that you may need to go afk for dinner or similar at all?
Yes @ times as RL&work>wow, but try to keep afk time during raids to a minimum.

Previous Guilds/Current Guild: (Include reason for leaving/desire to leave)
Last 25 man raiding guild was Ambidextrous, recently gkicked after misunderstandings/disagreement with officers (discussed with Aelite prior to application). Currently in a RL mates guild who has no issue with me moving to a raiding guild on my main, which is my pally.

What was your guild rank? (gm, officer, member etc)
Core Raider in Ambidextrous.

What pre BC, TBC and wotlk raiding experience do you have?
Vanilla, all bosses in every raid instance.
BC, all bosses in every raid instance.
WOLK, all bosses in every raid instance + 11/12 ICC10 HM, 10/12 ICC25 HM experience.

Can you move out of fire/void zones on the ground in less than .001 sec?
Generally, have good raid awareness and an aversion to standing in fire.

If you are applying as DPS, include a link to either WWS or a recount screenshot (Koralon,25 ICC bosses are probably best)
Unfortunately don't have WWS details & not sure how to link a SS, DPS is solid, just over 14k unflasked after patch on saurfang 25 in a pug prior to obtaining Shadowmourne (as an indication).

400-500 MS, 40-60 FPS (depending on encounter, amount of AOE etc)

Link to a screenshot of your Raid UI: (if it cannot be seen in your DPS screencapture) -
As above re; SS, but use WOW UI with DBM, Grid, Decursive & Recount to minimize errors and other UI issues.

What sets you apart from other members of your class?
I <3 my paladin as he's my original WOW character, for the utility, numerous raid buffs that the class provides & general awesomeness of paladins.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
I'm an experienced and reliable raider, generally learn encounters and mechanics quite quickly, like to analyze encounters, can adapt as required and recently acquired Shadowmourne.

14k before or after 4.0.1?

This guy outgears Av with smourne, but Av pulled ~18k on Saurfang (normal) last week. Granted that was with smourne, but thats a large difference in dps.

That can be fixed though.

This bit (I cbf quoting atm):

He has geared correctly,some how got his hands on DBW which recently became close to BIS, lucky guy. Has the right prime glyphs after that i guess its just whatever you feel will be better for dps, i prefer consecration but that is just me, there is nothing wrong with hammer. Spec also seems good, just a little bit of difference but nothing major.

Id say get a new profession because mining is useless for dps, i know you offspec tank but you aren't applying as a tank so you might want to consider JC or engineering.

Thanks for the app ^^

Hey Aelite, Magic, Avreria.

Don't know how many of the gravity folks still play, in contact with a couple of them as few went to ambidextrous after gravity was effectively disbanded when the GM's account got hacked.

The point i disagreed with the officers was when strat's were appearing not to work and causing a series of wipes so i suggested things that may have worked better, based on raid composition, positioning or when certain classes/players weren't doing what was required, which in turn was causing wipes and wasn't being addressed by the officer group, but @ the end of the day it's the officers calls and certainly didn't think i was running the show.

14k on Saurfang was after the patch, while still getting comfortable with the new ret rotation in a raid environment (which changed significantly) in a pug, unflasked and without using consumables, tank threat was potentially an issue, so higher dps is definitely possible.

As stated openly in my application, there are times I raid with mates on other characters as most raiders with alts do, but to clarify the point, if successful with my application to dezire, raiding with dezire and progression raiding would be prioritized to avoid any raid/time conflicts.

It's true mining doesn't directly benefit dps, but the extra survivability does come in handy at times, especially when there's heavy raid damage and healing is tight or if the raid is short a tank. As we all know a dead dps does 0 damage, it also matches nicely with blacksmithing (which is why i still have it) would consider switching to JC if my application is successful.

Hope that covers everything.

Application withdrawn.

Didn't hear back for several days after posting a reply to queries re; my app & when i spoke to Aelite in-game he informed me that Dezire is becoming a 10 man focused raiding guild in Cataclysm + the remainder of WOLK and I'm interested in joining a 25 man raiding guild.

Thanks for considering the application anyway and good luck in the coming Cataclysm.
