1.)Character Name: Adaremx 2.)Character Class: Mage 3.)Which role are you primarily applying for?: Ranged DPS 4.)Armory Profile Link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/sargeras/adaremx 5.)Age:23 6.)Please provide us with a link to your WoL parses: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/zuljin/adarem#rankingzone=13 7.)Why do you want to join TFB?: I have a lot of friends here. They like raiding here, so I assume I would as well. 8.)Please provide us with a screenshot of your raid UI 9.)Are you easily offended by racist, sexist, or other such humor? No 10.)Do you have any friends within TFB? Any enemies? I have plenty of friends, most of Inept that went here, I've known Pockit for a while as well as Stallions, etc from back when we used to do joint runs of Heroic Siege on our alts. 11.)Do you have any alts worth mentioning? Nothing worth mentioning right now, as they're all Horde on Zul'jin still, but I can provide links to them or answer any questions about my history with them as needed! 12.)What is the absolute latest time you can raid? I can raid until whenever. I'm in California so these times are early. 13.)Please note our raid times are in EST, are you able to make those times stated above? Yes 14.)We raid from 7-11 on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. What time zone do we raid in? EST 15.)If the raid leader was to wrongfully chew you out in the middle of a raid how would you react? I've been in this situation as the wrongful one. If it's immediately detrimental to the strategy we're trying to employ, I try to explain myself so we can continue pushing forward. If it's something that maybe they just got frustrated about, I'll save it until after the raid or just drop it. It's annoying to have your time wasted and that's not really what raiding is about. It's usually nothing personal anyways. 16.)If you were asked to sit out for a raid that you signed up for in advance how would you react? As long as I get a shot at getting relevant pieces I need to perform, I don't mind. 17.)What two websites do you visit for the most WoW information related to your class? I feel like most people answer this type of question the same these days, and I'm not attempting to be a smartass. Most meaningful discussion is done in class discords, with other players of your class at a level similar to yours or higher, or by delving through warcraftlogs and looking for cast optimizations and such. If I had to choose, Warcraftlogs and Hall of the Guardians (Discord for Mages) 18.)A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? "Yikes, what am I doing here?" 19.)Why are you actively searching for a new guild? What expectations do you have for us? Well, I want to get back into the swing of things for BfA. I took a big break from the game after my last guild (Inept) died and I really miss the sense of teamwork and accomplishment you get from killing a Mythic boss with your pals. This is really my only choice as far as guilds go because to me, the most important thing is enjoying my time with people I know. I expect an environment that will be focused on getting bosses down in a timely manner while still having a fun atmosphere to raid in. 20.)How long have you been playing WoW and how many guilds have you been a member of? I've been playing WoW since late Vanilla/early BC. I've been in 3 guilds that mattered, Encore on Ysondre (not the one you're thinking of initially), Realm Last, of which I was the GM, and Inept, of which I was an Officer/GM. 21.)What is your longest tenure in any one guild? Greater Than 3 Years 22.)How active do you plan to be on the forums during your tenure here? Multiple Times A Day 23.)What previous raiding experience do you have? I've raided casually in BC, and took a more serious approach starting in Wrath. I cleared all content on Heroic in Wrath (granted it was post nerf, rip Ysondre) In Cataclysm I cleared about half of the bosses on Heroic in my priest before transferring to Sarg to create Realm Last. From Dragon Soul to Blackrock Foundry we cleared all content with Cutting Edge excluding T14, missed about 3 of those bosses I believe. Towards the end of WoD, I was invited to join Inept (formerly Going Ham) and we cleared all content on Mythic from HFC to Tomb of Sargeras, where we eventually disbanded on KJ. 24.)What can we expect from you in our raids? I believe myself to be an extremely versatile player. As a former GM I would often give myself odd jobs that involve soaking or weird positioning, especially while playing mage, or warlock when they still had personal port baseline because I felt like I could handle it and get it done effectively and efficiently. Back in Siege of Orgrimmar, I kited Iron Stars when we lost the monk that did it, often at a detriment to my own damage, but just because it needed to be done. There are other examples but this is one that sticks out to me, probably just because I enjoyed that period of the game so much. 25.)Despite our 3 day a week raid schedule and having an application that tests your humor, we can be very serious about DPS/HPS, reflexes, and raid attendance. These will be heavily critiqued by the raid leader. Can you handle this kind of criticism? Yes, if you want to be the best you always have to strive to improve. With this comes criticism. I'm no stranger to it. 26.)What do you feel are the most important aspects of your class and spec? What do you bring to the raid and how do you maximize it? Well, as a mage, you provide a ton of utility. You have a ranged interrupt that is off the GCD, not a huge deal but compared to some of the other ranged interrupts added to the game over the years, it's pretty nice. You can seamlessly interrupt while maintaining damage if you are comfortable enough. More obvious things include Ice Block, for immunity on odd debuff style mechanics, as well as blink for getting into position for things like Mistress Hydra Shots, or getting out of large ground mechanics that other classes might be punished for. These things are fairly obvious to anyone who's played the game for some time, but they allow skilled players to maximize their damage output and minimize healing required, something I consider important for progression. As far as spec specific things go, I'm still getting my feet wet again, but frost has essentially been the single/2 target spec this expac, outside of EN, where fire reigned. Fire has sort of been this multi/spread/DoT focused spec, certainly capable of fine single target but really shined in situations where things were not stacked super tight, but still needed to be burnt down. I never got the lego bracers for fire so I never dabbled with it for single target post EN, outside of niche uses/fun. Arcane has been an odd thing for me, I always saw it used for burst AoE, haven't felt a need to play it much this expac and learn the nuance. In any case, if it's the most optimal spec to play for progress, I'll learn it, and play it well. 27.)If there's anything else you want to add; either a self bio, information about friends who may join, or if you simply want us to know something not asked, this is the time to let us know. My name is Chris. I'm 23, from California. I know my gear isn't the greatest but I'm actively looking at getting it up to snuff. I've been on a long break since Inept broke up, but I'm looking to come back and get ready for BfA to raid competitively again. 28.)TFB has no guarantee that server transfers will be automatically accepted into the guild. Failure to perform at our level or failure to attend raids reliably during your recruitment period can and will result in denial. Do you accept this risk? Yes 29.)How did you hear about us? Friend/Referral 30.)What is your current artifact level on your weapon? Do you have any legendaries? Frost is 67. Working on getting more legendaries, I have the time warp ring already.
