Topic: Application - Protection Paladin

Hi,

Just before we get into anything, I did notice you said you need Tanks but also theres a Protection Paladin that applied in May.. so..

Character Name: Azimii
Class: Paladin
Armory Link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/a … i/advanced
Country: United Kingdom
Age: 24

I do have 567 Healing offspec, so might not be logged into the correct spec/gear on my armory so here.
Full Defensive Build - http://imgr.es/26NQ
Crit/Damage Build - http://imgr.es/26NP


1) Tell us about yourself.
Im a 24 year old software engineer who's just relocated to Glasgow and looking to have some fun raiding until WoD, although I do have the Beta so theres always fun testing broken raid bosses there big_smile

2) Tell us about your previous guild(s). Why are you looking for a new home?
I was in Squirtles (Formally Turtles, and Formally top 50 raiding guild EU). I left because the number of nights & IRL things with moving, holidays etc just didn't fit. I wanted more time to myself for IRL.

3) How long have you been playing WoW?
Since Patch 4.2

4) How long have you been playing the character you applied with?
Since 5.2 (/played 40 days)

5) How long do you intend to keep on playing (this character)? Do you want to keep playing this spec? If not, what do you want to play? Are you proficient in a second spec?
I have all five tanks at max level, 3 of which are above 570.. I have switched around in the past for progression however since the game is pretty much over I want to bis my Paladin to all Heroic Warforged.

6) Tell us about your typical "spell rotation".
Well.. Being a tank Im just focusing on building holy power mostly, however its CS>J>AS>HW>Cons assuming all is well, but for the level 90 talent other then Holy Prism its good to factor Vengeance & WoG/Trinket Procs

Provide a relevant raid combatlog of your character in World of Logs or WarcraftLogs.
Since I haven't really raided for like 3months they are mostly expired, my Rank #36 is still available at Thok HC http://worldoflogs.com/rankings/players … n_Paladin/


What are your goals in WoW?
Have Fun, Bis my Paladin.

Where do you find your fun in the game, do you have a "hobby" ingame?
Mostly raiding and theory crafting, testing new builds etc.

What are your raiding experiences, also from previous expansions?
Im 14/14 HC, sadly took alot longer then I thought, we had guild roster issues back in February so only got him killed months later with pugs.

Do you have any notable alts?
DK Tank - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/s … i/advanced
Monk Tank (Mainly used for CM's now) - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/s … w/advanced
Warrior Tank - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/d … i/advanced
Alt Paladin Tank - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/a … i/advanced

What do you expect of your new guild?
A regular raiding spot & to have fun with a simple & fair loot system.

What do you think your attendance will be if we offer you a raiding spot in Phalanx? Do you have any personal obligations which would interfere with our raid times?
99.9%, Other then being late home for work but I could inform you via the remote amrory application.

What do you know about Phalanx, and why do you want to join exactly our guild? 
I know your a guild looking for a Tank & Healer on auchindoun which some HC Experience that suites me.

What kind of computer and connection do you have?
I have a Macbook Pro, iMac, Custom Built PC with 2x 5870. All the computers can raid 10man HC.

Is there someone in our guild who could support your application?
Nope.

Tell us a joke!
Always with the joke questions, its 10am... Im working from home.. Theres no jokes here..

I also have a Druid Healer friend who might be interested in joining 575+ 11/4 HC, you guys interested.. Ideally we'd want to join together.. I can get an application for the druid soon.

Hey there! You got some nice meat on your bones there!

Does this mean fun stops when WoD comes? Or are you perhaps only applying for the rest of this expansion? yikes

Anyways have you given any thoughts on what class/role you would like to play in WoD?

Thumbs up! And yes, would be awesome to get your friend apply aswell smile

Argh, I just meant because I've kind of been AFK in the game.

Thoughts? Currently from my tests and others Druid tank seems really strong, with Warrior/Paladin kind of where they are at now maybe abit of a nerf.. and at least with Paladin the skill cap raised abit higher with the seal switching perhaps. Warrior just lost half of its spells though, but thats a good thing hopefully.

However WoD is a long time off, Im enojoying a few pokes at the Beta currently.

Let's hope WoD isn't that far off.
I presume you have read that our guild is planning to do only heroic in WoD. I'm double checking because I see you are currently are a HC raider.

Other than that, we should have a swift reply for you.

Re: Application - Protection Paladin

Im kind of only applying for this current expansion, at least for now.. Unsure what im doing for WoD. Perhaps your roster is full for tanks? kind of unsure because you said you need a Tank so surely your not raiding or using an DPS with Tank currently?

Also unsure how you can plan to only do HC.. your going to clear what we call Normal quickly I'd expect and have nothing to do...

Either way, WoD is like a Nov-Dec release, I kind of just want to have some fun and seems you guys have some progression left so that might be fun perhaps I can help out I thought along the way. I can understand if your not interested though.

Re: Application - Protection Paladin

Yes, that is an issue. This new system has created a bit of a problem in that regard, as we've raided non-stop for almost 10 years now, and we're not really interested in all the extra hassle of going 20+ again.

For now, we've decided to see how it all plays out. Hopefully the new "Heroic" will be at least somewhat more challenging than what we call Normal today, or we (and a lot of other 10-man guilds) will be in a bit of a tough spot.

At any rate, I like the application. Solid experience, well written and obviously someone who knows what to do. I don't actually know how our tanking situation is, as we did recruit the Protadin you mentioned, though I suspect that was mainly a WoD thing.

For now though, I think we're all holding our breath a bit regarding the 14th of August. Hopefully, they will reveal both the 6.0 date and the actual WoD release date, so we'll know exactly what to expect. I wouldn't be surprised if the WoD release date is November 24th, 2014 as that's the 10 year anniversary of WoW.

Anyway, it seems I'm just rambling now, so I'll shut up.

Re: Application - Protection Paladin

I've been expecting a Nov-Dec release date for WoD as well, but I'm starting to think we might see an early October release. Either way, we will know more in one week smile

We're recruiting mostly with WoD in mind, which is why we are recruiting all roles. With some people rerolling to dps or healer, we do have room for another tank.
We've just started up again after our summer break this week, and started to work on the Glory of the Pandaren Raider and Glory of the Thundering Raider meta achievements.

There are no concrete plans yet for what we do afterwards, we're waiting for the release date announce next week to know how many raidweeks we got until 6.0.

Keldorn voiced our WoD plans quite well, we are going to start out with heroic raiding, and see how that turns out. I think our recruitment post and guild charter also explain our ideas. Like you said, it might be too easy, and we might feel the need to turn ourselves into a Mythic guild later on, but that's currently not the plan.

Long story short: It sounds like you're looking for something a bit different than what we are currently offering. Please let me know your thoughts on that.

Re: Application - Protection Paladin

The simple truth is i'm looking to raid right now with any guild doing some HC. Now this is only going to be use to you if you have some guys who want to sit out for abit or guys taking a break.. or rerolling.

So its upto you guys, Id like to raid until WoD.. when WoD.. who knows.

Re: Application - Protection Paladin

Since I can't promise you heroic raiding, I don't think we're the right fit for you.

I want to thank you for the effort you put into your application and wish you the very best of luck in finding a new guild!
