Character specific questions

Explain your current gear choices and how you hope to improve them in the future, meaning which stats do you prioritize and why.

My main spec at the moment is a frost tank. Main stat is stamina with the debuff in icc dodge just aint as important anymore. Never have any problem with hate and so dropped the expertise cap and hit cap for more hp. Recently changed my gear slightly to get my 4 set bonus as the 12% dmg reduction every minute is to good to turn down. Although a slight down grade in gear from the other gear i had the 4 set bonus is well worth it.

As for upgrades its bracers and a neck that im in desperate need of upgrading and i am waiting for those all important drops for them.

Comment on how you've chosen to gem and enchant your character, and why you have chosen these gems/enchants.

For Tanking I enchanted as much pieces as possible with stamina for the extra hp. Also enchanted boot with minor speed increase to help moving that little quicker during raids. Gems are all stamina.

What glyphs are you using and why?

Rune strike - 10% extra crit chance for a main threat talent (which is bound to all abilities through macros)
Howling blast - Great for picking up threat on multiple mobs when it crits also add my dot to each add.
Unbreakable armour - Give me 10k armour when used with this glyph

Pestilence - The next 3 are the 3 minor that ALL dks should use.
Horn of winter -
Raise dead -

Could you point out the strong points and focus of your spec?

My tanking spec concentrate on survivability with talents such as unbreakable armour/icebound fortitude. these mixed with the 4 set bonus i have 3 really good tanking abilities that can be rotated to give me extra survivability to help the healers. Also give me very good threat from the start with icy touch giving me huge threat from the instant i pull.

Do you have any notable offspec gear and are you experienced/up to date with the mechanics of playing your offspecs?

My off spec is Unholy. This used to be my main spec up until 6 months ago when my current guild needed tanks. It still has decent gear with a mixture of 245/251 and 264 gear. It can put out 7-8k dps single target but upwards of 10k on aoe. I love and understand the unholy dps spec and believe its the best dps spec for a raiding guild as i can give the 13% magic dmg buff to all caster. This means a lock doesnt have to use curse of elements and instead can use another damaging spell instead.

We require you to have at least one crafting profession (not engineering). If you have two gathering professions, would you be prepared to reroll one?
I have JC which give me the extra stamina with the dragons eyes.

General questions

Previous guilds and reasons for leaving?
Only real guild i have been in is Angels Of Darkness - The reason for leaving is for past few months we havent been able to raid properly due to not having enough for 25 man raids. I play the game to raid and want it more regularly and get progression.

What role do you feel you provide in a raid and what areas of strengths do you feel your class and spec has over others?

An experienced tank that does not mind barking out orders. Believe a tank can make the big decisions correctly if he is paying attention. Its up to us to position the bosses pick up the adds and move at the right time. If not its a wipe. I love the stress of it all since changing to tank and since i have other chars that range/melee dps as well as heal i have seen most fight from all points of view and understand them.

What 1 thing would you change about your class if you could?
Stop all the noobs rolling dks and giving us good ones a bad name!!

What do you think you can add to Eternals?
A player that wants to raid wants to progress, isnt scared to put his thoughts into fight if i think i can make a good point if we are struggling.
Also an experienced player that is always looking for way to improve.

What do you think Eternals can do for you?
Give me that chance to improve as a player and to progress further in the game.

Do you know anyone from Eternals who might have something nice to say about you?
Trumpetka and potions from AoD

Personal infomation; Name, age, where you live, interests/hobbies, Job and family that will nag you to stop raiding?
Kevin McGregor 27 from perth in scotland. Interested in computers as a whole/football.
Im married with a 16month old son who is bedded by 19:00 so never disturbs my raids!! And the wife understand that i use this game to unwind from real life stress and allows me to raid at nights.

Additional information which you would like to name?

Although im applying as a tank i would have no problem simply changing to unholy dps spec once again. I love the spec and only changed due to the guild requirements at the time.

As for the playing times. I know its not ideal with someone to apply that works shift work. The nights i can def play are Wednesday and Sundays and 99/100 my day off is a friday. The other nights my shifts change from week to week though if needed i can easily let u know in advance what shifts i am on as i normally get 4-6 weeks of rota in one go. Also i normally only work 1 other late night so the other days i would be free to play.

To recap i should be able to raid 4 days a week minimum 5 days most weeks.

Raided with Kordin one year. Apart from some personal disputes about "human approach to so called people" I respect Kordin as a good player.

Good luck with your application Kordin. Very Happy
