Astralar, Elemental Shaman, 85.

What are your current builds and why did you choose them?
Elemental Mainspec. Because my favourite role is ranged DPS, and out of much rerolling experience i find that elemental the most fun to play
Tell us what you know about the class and specc you play. Try to impress us with your knowledge! At least include:
1. Spell rotation or spell priority for your main specc. Healers give a short description of spells used in different situations.
spell priority is: Flame Shock>Unleash Elements(debateable, but it’s mana free and gives more ‘BOOM’ to my lava burst :))>Elemental Mastery>Lava Burst/trinket/blood fury macro>Earth Shock (only on 9 stacks of lightning shield for full fulmination damage)>Chain Lightning(only when there are 3 ore more targets, also needs to factor into spell rotation where it would use a stack of clearcasting, since putting chain lightning priority to top can drain a shamans entire mana pool in about 90 seconds due to the 5481 mana it costs combined with low mana regen. (works well as the 2nd spell after a lava burst, as lava burst should always crit (which will activate 2 stacks of clearcasting) and since it’s a bolt spell compared to chain lightnings instant cast - it needs to have time to reach the target before chain lightning can be cast. I find lightning bolt a reliable and suitable buffer since it has no cooldown.))>Lightning bolt/trinket/blood fury macro.
2. The most important stats for your class.
I have never read up about my class, not out of ignorance i just believe that the only way to find out a classes strengths and weaknesses is to find them out yourself.
reforging/enchantment priorities are: Spirit/Hit (only so far as boss hitcap)>Mastery (yes, mastery)>Intellect>haste>crit (crit is bad for a shaman; lava burst always crits no matter what and since lava burst is such a large chunk of ele DPS it needs to be reforged to something that will affect all spells for maximised damage)
When would you be available to raid with us? (Our raid schedule is Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 20.00-00.00 server time.)
all of the above
Do you experience slowdowns, lag or disconnects in 25-man raids?
nope. hight speed fibre optic connection isn’t affected by weather, and my fps never drops below 60 even with ultra video settings in a 25 man raid
Tell us about your previous raiding experience
As level 60: MC, AQ temple, AQ ruins.
As level 70: Zul’aman and BT
As level 80: naxx, Ulduar, trial of crusader, ICC (all but lich king).
As level 85: only BoT, BH, and 5/6 BWD… however i have kept up to date with FL tankspot videos on youtube, i know the only real experience is to pewpew the bosses myself but its a start!
What is your opinion on doing hard modes?
the challenge is what makes this game fun, bring it on i say!
Do you have any previous MMORPG experience?
just 6 years of WoW.
What are your previous guild(s) and why did you leave it?
a small guild (27 people, 8 of which lvl85… :/), i joined for the promise of raiding but recruitment didn’t really happen and then i think the guildmaster quit wow…
apart from that I’ve been in pretty decent raid guilds, in wotlk i was in a 25 man raid guild and did naxx and ulduar at the start of the expansion. i’ve forgotten the name now because the guild disbanded…
and i was in ‘the late knights’ towards the end of WOTLK, had lots of fun in ICC (that guild also fell apart :/)
What do you expect to find in our guild?
a nice respectful and friendly atmosphere, good raid organisation (sorry but i get kinda annoyed when a raid is planned then doesn’t happen when i’ve cleared my IRL schedule for it)
Is there anything else you would like to add?
sorry to be so formal with this application, i have a sense of humour too i promise!
and sorry about the bad grammar and misuse of ‘i’
also i thought i would just explain my current gear and raiding experience:
I quit WOTLK at the end of the summer before cata because as much fun as raiding was, i found it really frustrating at how my ancient PC and dodgy internet handled raids. so i promised myself i would only come back to this game when i got that sorted.
then cataclysm came along and that promise went out the window…
so i spent a few weeks leveling my characters and then the frustration set in again when i found that even 5 mans were a task for my old machine, so i quit again and made the same promise, but this time i stuck at it and now 9 months later i have a really decent connection and a top of the range PC to go WoW crazy with! so… I’m really looking forward to getting back into raiding if you would have me
