    Silenia-575 Resto Druid 12/14H

    Your age: 19 Years old

    BattleTag: Decalb#1176

    Armory Link of Main: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bleeding-hollow/Silenia/simple

    Armory Links of Notable Alts:

    World of Logs/WMO Parses: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/guild/5724/latest/

    Screenshot of your UI: http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/18/87/95/81/wowscr11.jpg (Not up to date but what it generally is. I don't run many addons besides DBM/Recount)

    List the days you are raid available (Sun-Thurs 8-12pm EST): Every day 7-1am EST

    What add-ons do you rely on most? DBM. Mainly since this question had the word most in it. I don't rely on any addon, I like to have an understanding of boss abilities so I can time my reactions properly. DBM just happens to be a useful crutch to lean on in terms of timing. Recount is nice to view deaths.

    What resources do you use to keep up to date on how to play your class? Google. There are constantly different top end players voicing there opinions in different blogs about what works and what doesn't; what will work and what won't. As a healer it's not like a dps where you just calculate the correct what buttons should be pushed when and if you have to push something out of order what you can do to still maximize your dps. It's a lot more situational and the resources I use are mainly to compare how other healers react in the same situation.
    (Sorry if you guys expect a specific place, but I don't feel like that just checking out mmochampions for theorycrafting is always the best bet as a healer, don't get me wrong I still look at it, but I don't rely on it as dps roles do for example.)

    What previous raid experience do you have? I've been raiding since Vanilla although my main progression started in BC. Cleared everything but sunwell, with the first 2 bosses down (pre-patch). WoTLK I cleared everything as well. I would have had a US 17 kill (Riot Act) for H LK 25 man but I asked to be sat the night of due to family circumstances. Afterwards the guild basically disband on the spot. In cata I played casually due all the content minus Dragon Soul, which I did do after the fact. In MoP I've done all the content, (just recently went back and did H ToT because I did not raid during that time period) and am 12/14H SoO with progression on Paragons.

    What guilds have you been a member of and why are you leaving? Hero Squad is the guild I am currently in and we have stopped raiding.

    Why do you want to join Shade of Arrows (Be thorough with your answer)? I am hoping to find a group of friends to raid with who can be both serious and fun and accomplish a lot in short amounts of time. Cobane advertised your guild on my post and I felt you guys might be a good fit.

    How did you find us (Friend,Forum,Trade Chat,Officer, etc.)(specify)? Cobane advertised you guys on my looking for recruitment post on the WoW forums.

    Are you competitive by nature? If so, who do you compete against (Yourself or others? Specifiy other)? As a healer I have become a lot less competitive. When I raided with Riot Act I was constantly striving for top DPS parses because, dps was something that was consistent. As a healer, this isn't the case. Although I do try to maximize my throughput and beat the other healers I'm healing with, as well as get higher parses comparatively to those killing the same bosses around the world; it does not mean as much. As a healer, you are ideally supposed to work with the other healers in order to keep the raid in the best condition possible. If healing was more competitive, it'd be impossible to line up cooldowns properly because everyone would just be trying to get the HPS for themselves. That being said, I still like to have a general idea that I am healing well and I check this by seeing that I am on par or nearly the same as the other healers healing with me. Many times I am far above them, but in 10man this is often just class bias.

    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): I am a college student doing premed with a Biochemistry/Psychology Major. I will be a sophomore next fall semester. I enjoy going to bars as well as socializing in my free time. Love playing foot ball and soccer, hate frisbee. I live in NYC.

    Bonus question >>Do you attend couple's cross-stitching?<< I do not.

    I second Colin. Trial this mofo.

    In all seriousness, how do you typically track uptimes. Just looking up at your buffs?

    "how do you typically track uptimes. Just looking up at your buffs?"

    That's horrible. The WeakAuras addon is a great addition that allows you to create and customize trackers of your choosing. You can add sound and other effects as needed. This would help maximize proc usage like Spirit of Chi-Ji and Lucidity. You want to ensure high uptime on Harmony. Some fights I noticed uptime was as low as 50/60%.

    I used to use weak auras, but there were several times where it completely stopped working and during the duration it was down it was just a huge inconvenience having to readjust to tracking my buffs in the corner. I tend to follow my buffs by just keeping track of them with my eyes in the right hand corner, same as I would a debuff. For example if Chi-Ji is up I see it ticking down from 9 seconds in the top corner, I will obv. pop mushroom or something accordingly, as well as possibly blanketing a bit heavier depending on what is happening (all this stuff as a healer is super situational, since if there isn't much raid damage going out, even if chi'ji is up, there is no point in wasting a bloom that might be needed a couple of seconds later). I totally understand the convenience of it, just the inconvenience for me of having to readjust for a night or two while the addon wasn't working didn't make up for it, simply because following my buffs/debuffs in the first place without the addon wasn't a difficult task. In terms of harmony, up time - it really depends on the fights you were looking at. I agree it should have nearly 100% up time with little to no excuses that can be offered otherwise. The only reasoning I could provide for why it wouldn't have low up times as that of which you mentioned - was the fight you were looking at was most likely not only farm content but one that didn't require much healing at all. A lot of the fights in 10man that are farm content are nearly solo-healable from my perspective and my shaman healer guildy and I often found ourselves just messing around, knowing that neither of us would be breaking any records with how much hps the other healer was stealing (again, this is why being competitive as a healer sucks X.X). On progression fights or even farm content that is slightly challenging - I would like to say that that is not a common occurrence.

    PS: Sorry for the late response, worked out early today so just checking my computer.

    That's really weird. Since I logged out multiple times after finishing brawler yesterday. It should be updated with my normal gear. Let me know if there are any more issues.
    (My boomkin gear is my resto gear, minus one trinket / which would be general's trinket)

    But from the looks of everything else it seems fine.
    Your logs look good for the most part. I do feel like you could have done better on some fights.

    I will accept you to trial with us if you so choose to take it.
    And if you do we will see how you do this coming Tuesday.Smile
