    Screenshot of your UI: http://i.imgur.com/TEE43Rh.jpg

    List the days you are raid available (Sun-Thurs 8-12pm EST):  
    All Days

    What add-ons do you rely on most?
    BigWigs to tell when adds/painful mechanics are cast
    Tellmewhen to track ICD trinket cooldown and starfall duration
    Affdots: Moonkin for paying better attention to stronger dots for more procs

    What resources do you use to keep up to date on how to play your class?
    Simcraft as well as the usual websites: Mmo-champion, Icy-veins, Elitistjerks, but always make sure to check my information against people who have more information than me, a friend in Keep Calm on Spirestone specifically, but I try to contact whoever I can.

    What previous raid experience do you have?
    9/14H t16
    13/13N t15
    8/8N t13 prenerf
    8/8H t13 postnerf
    Cleared everything in cata at level, but not during current content.

    What guilds have you been a member of and why are you leaving?
    Onineko - Current - I can no longer make the australian evening raid times due to my moving from Hawaii to Virginia for college.
    All Heart - Merged with Onineko

    Why do you want to join Shade of Arrows (Be thorough with your answer)?
    After coming back from a 6 month break and getting back into raiding, I initially expected myself to be happy casually progressing through heroics with whoever I happened to run into; however, I find myself looking for something more efficient and progression oriented to finish up the expansion and progress into immediate competitive mythic raiding in WoD.

    How did you find us (Friend,Forum,Trade Chat,Officer, etc.)(specify)?
    Forum

    Are you competitive by nature? If so, who do you compete against (Yourself or others? Specifiy other)?
    I am competitive among my raid group, self, and friends to try to raise my ranks on logs, but that's really just competing against myself to do more numbers every attempt.

    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 play boomy the best of the four specs and am able to play resto to a certain degree (have had to do it for iron jugg every week except the most recent one), but haven't messed with feral/guardian since cataclysm (would like to dabble again). I consider myself to be a solid player and enjoy trying to improve my play and relish opportunities to compare myself to better players. After raids I look over my parses I consider to be subpar and look for places to improvement. Outside of World of Warcraft I used to enjoy playing Starcraft 2 from time to time at a reasonable level (diamond) and improving myself there.

    Bonus question >>Do you attend couple's cross-stitching?<<
    I do it on my own because my SO won't attend with me.

    Thanks for the app.  I'm out of town so I'll try to get another officer to look through your logs.  We'll get back to you ASAP.

    Might not be able to make the raid on tuesday due to possible unforeseen circumstances surrounding the flight I'm going to be taking (I'm sure we've all dealt with these sorts of problems with airlines).

    Also, should I get my logs looked at by a more advanced boomkin yet? or wait another week for it?

    Now is an appropriate time to get your logs reviewed.

    I got my logs reviewed on Sentry Totem:

    Okie-dokie, so I don't go into super-detailed tickets like others experts -- mostly because I can see the issues from a few numbers.

    ANYWHO.

    I prefer to use Iron Juggernaut as my standard. Looking over the logs, I'll list the major things we actually care about:

    http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pdrFqcG7ztLDY6QN#fight=10&type=auras&graph=true&start=3177675&end=3332485&source=6

    - NG Uptime: Great (88%, but Phase B was part of the segment I'm looking at, so you should aim for 95% even with Phase B.)
    - SS Usage: 41 casts, 51 procs (19.6% wastage) - Phenomenal, though you 'should'
    - DOT Uptimes: Great. (89.7%|93.5%)

    So, everything looks really, really good. But I think you're spending too much time in Lunar Eclipse. When it comes to LMG procs, you didn't get any luck, so there's that (extremely low uptime while in Lunar Eclipse). Though, you should have some incredibly powerful DOTs ticking from proper refreshes in Solar.

    Honestly, there really isn't much to fix for single-target. Just don't die next time. Smile

    Fallen Protectors is another fight I like to look over:

    Looking over the logs again, you're going exceptional on Protectors as well.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Cancelling Starsurge is a tricky question, it's fairly situational. To keep it as simple as possible, if you haev CA active, you cancel every cast for that SS proc (unless you're literally about to complete the spell).

    UI looks clean, and you could probably try tracking Nature's Grace for Multi-DOTing. This way you don't overlap an NG-buffed DOT with an non-NG-buffed DOT.

    Other than those couple of notes, you've definitely shown impressive output via playstyle. The next thing you could work on is positioning to minimize your time spent moving. Things like timing Moonfire refreshes when you move. Starfall. SS procs for a second longer. Lots of little details.

    Can you link your reviewed thread please? I'd like to see the name of the commentor.

    The tickets on SentryTotem are private, so you won't be able to see the thread. It does show the name of the reviewer though.
