List the days you are raid available (Sun-Thurs 8-12pm EST):
I am available on all of those days at those times. However, I will miss 1 Tuesday a month due to school related issues.
What add-ons do you rely on most?
CLCRet, BigWigs, TellMeWhen, ElvUI, Skada, Omen, Clique
CLCRet: This is pretty much a mandatory addon as Retribution. It is able to make those quick adjustments to your priority based on procs or buffs.
BigWigs: Boss Encounter Addon, pretty self-explanatory.
TellMeWhen: TellMeWhen (or WeakAuras) is pretty amazing. It will especially shine in WoD for Ret for Empowered Seals maintenance.
ElvUI: Makes my UI look better. I like how customizable it is.
Skada: Meters are important. I look at them for DPS/Damage but I prefer them for other things. Tracking interrupts/dispels, damage taken and especially deaths.
Omen: Because surprisingly, threat can still be an issue, especially on new adds that the tanks haven't fully established threat on.
Clique: I like being able to use a mouse-click combination on unit frames to get my Hands of ... out quickly.
What resources do you use to keep up to date on how to play your class?
I use several websites and SimC. Maintankadin, MMO-Champion and Sacred Duty are my primary resources. SimC is good for general information but you can't take the information it gives you out of hand as the absolute truth.
What previous raid experience do you have?/What guilds have you been a member of and why are you leaving?
Mists of Pandaria
Sacrifice - Mannoroth: I applied to this guild (on my Paladin) and was accepted as a trial on June 24, 2014. I raided with them for three weeks before deciding that it wasn't the guild for me. I applied initially because I knew someone in the guild and figured I'd give it a shot. I went 14/14H with this guild
Omega Imperium - Stormrage: This is my weekend guild. We're currently taking a break until 6.0. 12/12H was achieved prior to the break. I play my Warlock actively and my Warrior is my backup character in the event a tank is needed.
LA - Stormrage (moved to Stormreaver after I left): I tanked in this guild on my Paladin for the entirety of ToT (13/13H - US25 25 Man) and the first 7 or 8 in Heroic SoO. I left because the differences in the guild between when I joined and when I left were like day and night. The raid atmosphere was stifling near the end of my tenure with LA. I wasn't enjoying my time in the guild.
Reckless - Skullcrusher: I was also tanking for this guild. I left because half of the officers and several of the raiders left at the end of Tier 14. A lot of people were dissatisfied that we didn't kill Heroic Sha before T15 was released. I didn't want to risk sticking with the guild and risk being stuck at an optimal time to seek a new guild. Since then, however, Reckless is raiding and is now 14/14H in SoO with much of the leadership replaced.
Questionable Intent - Shadowmoon: I was a tank in this guild for the entirety of Dragon Soul. We cleared 8/8H as a 10 man at the 15% or 20% nerfs. The guild started as a 25 man but the leadership had a hard time finding candidates to raid with us. The guild fell apart near the end of Cataclysm because of the inability to recruit back up to 25 mans.
Bless The Martyr - Shadowmoon: I dual-mained a Prot Paladin and a Warlock in this guild. We finished Tier 11 at 10/13H due to recruitment issues and ridiculous attendance frustrations. We finished Firelands at 6/7H and got the Meta mounts. We put several attempts on Ragnaros but that was it. The leadership took a break from WoW and most of the roster found other guilds.
Why do you want to join Shade of Arrows (Be thorough with your answer)?
I would like to join Shade of Arrows because I would like to be in a guild that can kill bosses while they're current. I'd like to make Shade of Arrows long-term placement for myself. The schedule is amenable to my current mindset.
How did you find us (Friend,Forum,Trade Chat,Officer, etc.)(specify)?
Haseoh replied to my thread on the WoW Recruitment Forums.
Are you competitive by nature? If so, who do you compete against (Yourself or others? Specifiy other)?
I am very competitive with myself. I don't really care what other people are doing. I want to do better this week than I did last week. I am extremely self-critical.
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'm 32 and don't like to waste time. My biggest flaw is my impatience. I'm a very protean person. I get along well with others. I respect people until given a reason to not respect them. Not really sure what else to put here.
Bonus question >>Do you attend couple's cross-stitching?<<
No. I do not share. What is mine, is mine.
