Would be able to raid on any 4 of these days without any problems, any more I'll need to deal with IRL aggro from the girlfriend but she can be swayed Smile lol

Do you have pre-WotLK raiding experience, if so what?
Cleared TK / SSC / Hjal / 4 BT with Angry Aces on Boulderist realm. Transfer to Ghostlands seen me clear BT and upto and including the twins in SWP with a my shaman called Areta before I quit for break before expansion

What 10 man and 25 man Ulduar bosses have you cleared and of which out of those bosses have you done on hard mode?
Cleared all 10 man Ulduar normal except Yogg n Alagon on my tank Warrior Zuggernaut and some on my destro Warlock Trilxx who is on horde side on Ghostlands. Done upto Auriya in 25man on Warrior. All with the guild Deadly Shadows or pug.
Only done Auriya 10 man normal on this character


Character specific questions:

Explain your current gear choices and how you hope to improve then in the future.
Since hitting 80 I have been farming heroics as much as I can in between work and already managed to grab the tier 8.5 head and chest as well as the wrists. Done a few easy raids inbetween like OS 10/25 Man and Naxx 10 today with a few of the people in this guild. As for improvements goes I still have to farm more badges to at least get the EoH shield and saving my EoT just now for the Relic which I should have in a few days. Apart from that it is mainly about replacing the Elemental gear I have into more Resto itemized gear

Comment on how youve chosen to gem and enchant your character, and why you have chosen these gems/enchants.
Started of gemming Int so I had the mana pool if I was ever going to do some pug raids and have now started to gem haste as it seems to be the way to go now that I have a large enough mana pool. For Elemental I will gem SP/Haste when hit capped ofc. boots enchant will of course be the stamina/speed increase enchant as it's pretty much needed if your going to raid

What glyphs are you using and why?
The standards glyphs for Resto and Ele are the ones I use. LHW and ES for MT healing whilst having CH glyph for that extra bit of raid healing when needed. Elemental ones are Flame Shock and LB with WoA glyph getting put in instead of current Lava one

Do you have any notable offspec gear and are you experience/up to date with the mechanics of playing your offspecs?
Completely upto date on how to play both specs I have mentioned and have no problems performing to the top of my ability as either

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?
Actually going to drop skinning soon to take JC or BS for there respective gains


General questions

Previous guilds and reasons for leaving?
Deadly Shadows on horde. Swapped accounts with my brother (Sean who you guys might remember as he used to play this toon in your guild) so he now plays my tank warrior Zuggernaut.
Destined (Resto Shaman) in Angry Aces (Shadowsong) before I left to go horde. Done all Naxx / OS / EoE 10/25man raids with this apart from 3 drakes.



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?
With the changes in 3.2 the Resto shaman is now a complete healer imo able to MT heal and raid heal (with enough haste for max raid heal). As well as totems we provide a damage reduction with our Ancestral Healing talent which is pretty awesome just now


What 1 thing would you change about your class if you could?
Still think we are a bit squishy when it comes to Health but otherwise the class is looking very good just now



What do you think you can add to Eternals?
Commitment and dedication. I'm a serious raider but can also see the funny side of things (1% wipes on Vashj are fun....lol) More or less available everyday and love to get involved in the banter that flys around guild chat



What do you think Eternals can do for you?
The chance to see the whole content of the game because your pool of players are top of their game and are capable of this. A stable enviroment in that I can flourish as a Shaman again


Personal infomation; Name, age, where you live, interests/hobbies, Job and family that will nag you to stop raiding?
Name - Matthew
Age - 26
Location - Scotland (Mon the jocks!)
Interests - Books, Xpert Eleven, Wow and Football Manager Games Smile
Work - Casual Concrete Layer
Other - Have own home with my very understanding girlfriend lol


Additional information which you would like to name?
Just that I know my gear ain't upto scratch but that is coming along at a nice speed just now but my lack of gear doesn't hold me back to much as I think my dedication to playing at the best of my ability can make up for it sometimes, obviously gear is still important and pretty much required to kill shit smoothly Smile
I have applied as Resto and I know that you guys ain't looking for one just now Sad but I can / will be availble when needed to raid as either Ele or Resto and I always have knowledge of the fight before hand

Nice app Smile Been in said Naxx pug this afternoon, definately a friendly and skilled player. Since we're not exactly looking for a resto shaman (as far as i know), how horrible would you feel about staying elemental for maybe a while? Because in the end, if you really prefer the resto spec over the ele spec, it's not a good idea to go ele hoping to get a chance to be resto in the near future.

I'm sure there'll be a shaman stopping by to pick your brain about optimal rotations etc. In the meantime, /w my alt Meissie for a better weapon enchant Wink
Good luck on your app!

Got no problems playing Ele and that's one of the reasons I put it in the title of thread Smile and have actually been some of my heroic farming as it. Been gearing as Resto but that can easily change and just spend my badges on Elemental stuff instead. Think reason I was going on more about Resto side of things is because I was still in heal mode from today's activites lol

Pulling around 3-4k dps in Heroics just now though I am a little below hit cap and missing some enchants for that spec. Both easily fixed. Gear itemization for Ele from badges has been horrible again but I have no problem wearing Cloth / Leather if it means my dps is gonna rocket higher.

I dont play elemental myself, so im not gonna comment on the spec / gylphs.
but just a few things about your gear :

-lv 70 items
-low enchants or missing enchants ( shoulders, weapon, legs, chest)
-gemming for hit and still under the cap
-int gem.... you got mana problems ? if so why only 1 point in unrelenting storm ? Rolling Eyes
-no totem of Hex ??
-no SoH rep ?

GL wiht your application Very Happy

As stated above I have sorted out my gems and enchants (they where for Resto at the time) etc and are now over hit cap if Boomkin / SP in raid so will be taking some hit gems out (don't know if armory has updated) Already have 10stats n my epic gems ready for 8.5 Ele chest.

Not started on my SoH rep yet as not long dinged 80 so been farming heroics for all the badge gear that is of use to me. Can easily put the exalted Scryers on that until I get the rep from SoH.

As for totem that is my first item I'm getting with my EoT badges as it's a lot better than Totem of Hex. This was stated in application also.

Only level 70 thing then is 1 trinket that I have had no luck in replacing so far as none have dropped in pugs i've done and badges have been spent elsewhere. Will be sorted soon as well.

Farmed 48 badges today so I can get the 8.5 Elemental chest tomorrow which will then give me 2 BiS pieces (Resto 8.5 head is BiS head for Ele Shaman) I don't fuck about when it comes to gearing up as quick as I can, and considering I've not long dinged 80 I have geared up quick.


Also I know that hardmodes in Uld are prob out the question for me just now but I can pick up pieces in farm raids / pugs etc.. until I get an invite to such Hardmode runs if I where to get invite to guild. I know my app is a strange one because of recently dinged 80 etc.. but I have skills / dedication / knowledge to be a very valuable asset to Eternals.

This is actually going to look like Elberas post a bit but we are going to decline you for now, if you fix what I write below then I will most definatly reconsider, either way you won't get in to a good guild without doing them so it's definatly worth doing.

1. SoH rep should be exalted (or at least close)
2. Sub-par chest enchant
3. Debateable boot enchant
4. Level 70 trinket
5. Generally low ilvl gear

I'm not keen on duel spec applications most of the time, I think a clearer understanding of what it is you want would be cool. But anyways, fix those things and bump this application and we will have another look, thanks for your time.

1. Going to work on the SoH just now, (Thank to Subeam for sending me a shit load of Relics)
2. Chest is getting replaced with the 8.5 one hopefully today and as stated already have the 10stats enchant n my epic gems in bag to use
3. Boot enchant is either that or Hit/Crit, i prefer this for quicker running when it's needed, which is a lot now a days.
4. Can understand but like I said had no luck in replacing but will at least get a Badge one after I get chest/shield.
5. Can play either spec nps and not fussed about playing either as equally happy doing both.

Thanks for the reply and time with my application. I will get all this stuff sorted then bump the thread as see where it goes from there Smile

Peace
