    I've used three names so I'll link all 3 raidbots.
    1. http://raidbots.com/epeenbot/us/thunderhorn/bestdruid/
    2. http://raidbots.com/epeenbot/us/thunderhorn/gavin/
    3. http://raidbots.com/epeenbot/us/thunderhorn/gav%C3%ADn/

    Anything under the name Bestdruid after August of 2013 was my alt druid that I reserved the name on for a short time.

    List the days you are raid available (Sun-Thurs 8-12pm EST):
    Sunday-Thurs 8-12. I raid on my alt druid in a laid back 25m on Fri/Sat.

    What add-ons do you rely on most?
    DBM, Bigwigs, tellmewhen

    What resources do you use to keep up to date on how to play your class?
    EJ and mmo-champion. EJ has been pretty inactive for a while now so mostly mmo-champion.

    What previous raid experience do you have?
    I started raiding in Dragon Soul on my ret paladin and main swapped to balance druid in ToT.
    T13: 8/8H at 15% i think (ret)
    T14: 14/16H pre-nerf (ret)
    T15: 13/13H pre-nerf (ret and balance)
    T16: 14/14H (ret)

    What guilds have you been a member of and why are you leaving?
    I started out in Fallen Empire on Thunderhorn. We killed Thok in October and we were on track for a solid guild rank this tier. After 250 attempts on Blackfuse, the guild called it quits because our hunter/warlock(married couple) randomly showed up when they wanted to and when they showed up they just fucked up. Most of us took a break after that point. I would have voted to keep going if more than half the guild prepared for the fights.

    I joined Thirteen Thirty Seven on Lightbringer for a week and then I decided to take a break from WoW.

    Fallen Empire reformed under the name Lethal in January with some new undergeared players and dropped down to two nights a week. After Lethal killed Garrosh and our warlock won the mount, she and her husband said they were taking a break until WoD. We solo tanked Garrosh and I think our tank is having marital issues. He has come up with some excuse all but one night to not show up since the kill.

    Why do you want to join Shade of Arrows (Be thorough with your answer)?
    I talked to a few people in Mumble earlier and I liked what I heard. You guys do your homework and show up prepared. You seem to give a fuck and that is important to me. It's not fun when only half the guild visits the guild website or reads/posts in strategy threads for bosses. It's not fun when only half the guild stays current with their theorycrafting. Cobane made it clear that you don't have that issue. You finished last tier at 60 and this tier at 50. That's a big jump and it shows that you guys push yourselves to do better every tier. All of this amounts to something that I would like to be a part of.

    How did you find us (Friend,Forum,Trade Chat,Officer, etc.)(specify)?
    I first noticed your guild in ToT. Fallen Empire finished 61st for US 10m and you guys finished 60th. This weekend I was watching Cobane's proving grounds guide and saw your guild again. Cobane replied to my thread in the guild recruitment forum.

    Are you competitive by nature? If so, who do you compete against (Yourself or others? Specifiy other)?
    I am very competitive. I compete against every other dps in the raid. If I wasn't competitive, I would have quit after killing Garrosh once. It's the final tier so gearing up more doesn't really matter. The only reason to come back now is to push for higher numbers and beat old ranks. There is one other boomkin in that alt 25m that I do on weekends. It's the first time I've really raided with another boomkin before and it definitely pushes me to play better and pay attention more.

    Tell us about yourself to help us determine if you would be a good fit here (The more you put here, the better it looks):
    My name is Gavin. I'm 23. I work for my family's business. We manufacture/sell abrasives. My job is to test whatever comes in from China and fix any mistakes. It's very exciting.....I'm not sure what I should put here that wasn't included in other sections. I probably should have read the whole app before filling it out. During progression, I do what it takes to get the kill. I don't care what shit job there is, but I was usually the first person asked to do it. Hopefully that's because I was reliable. Maybe they didn't trust me to just tunnel the boss. I hope to hear back from you soon. I'm sorry if I have rambled on too much in this app.

    Full disclosure, I am still looking at other guilds because once I pick a guild I plan on staying there for a long time. I joined that guild on Lightbringer hastily because they didn't make me fill out an app. It was a mistake and waste of money. I hope you can understand that.

    Bonus question >>Do you attend couple's cross-stitching?<<
    Nope.
