    1.)Character Name: Cloveresque
    2.)Character Class: Priest
    3.)Which role are you primarily applying for?: Ranged DPS
    4.)Armory Profile Link:


    6.)Please provide us with a link to your WarcraftLogs:

    7.)Why do you want to join TFB? Why are you searching for a guild, and what expectations do you have?:

    I am looking for a guild because I have had two guilds fall apart due to apathy this past tier. I am searching for a raid group that can clear mythic raids and get cutting edge while still having fun and not getting at each other's throats.

    I would also like stability in a guild and TFB seems to provide that as well. I have only switched guilds a couple times since WotLK. I hated the process each time so I would like a place to call home.

    8.)Are you easily offended by racist, sexist, or other such humor?


    9.)Do you have any friends within TFB? Any enemies?

    I was an officer along with Rutenio in <Handicap Hangtime>. I would consider him a friend but you can never really be 100% sure about a moonkin.

    I am not actively aware of any enemies in TFB.

    10.)Do you have any alts worth mentioning?

    I leveled and geared a rogue for the mythic Zul encounter in Uldir. He has been stealthily collecting dust ever since.

    11.)How do you ensure you handle mechanics with the highest success?

    I check the dungeon journal to get a quick overview of the mechanics of a fight. I also look at strategy guides written by guilds such as Limit. It helps me to watch videos of the fight, whether on youtube or twitch. I make sure my add ons and weakauras are up to date and modified to appropriately get my attention when needed. I take all of those sources and work their information into whatever role the raid group needs me to perform on the encounter.

    Of course when all of that preparation still leads to me standing in fire like an idiot, I take the time to properly call myself stupid. Then I do my best to learn from my mistake and make sure it doesn't happen again.

    12.)Why do you play this game? What keeps you motivated to keep coming back for more?

    Daily and world quests.

    Okay, while I do complete way too many quests to be considered normal, I also enjoy the challenge that dungeons and raiding provide in a multiplayer environment. It's fun to group up with like-minded players and murder stuff.

    13.)How do you keep up to date on your class?

    The primary resource hub nowadays is the priest discord. They run tons of simulations to create BiS suggestions for talents, essences, and gear. I also check warcraftlogs to see what choices other shadow priests make on each fight.

    14.)An LGBTQ penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero and demands you use their preferred gender pronouns. What do they say and what do you say back?

    (LGBTQ penguin wearing a sombrero walks through the door)
    Penguin: ¡Ay Dios mio! Donde estan sus pantalones?
    Clover: Ahem, where are YOUR pants? A penguin that can find a sombrero can certainly find himself some pants.
    Penguin, now agitated: Don't you mean "find PERself some pants"? I am offended that you disrespect my Hispanic, gender fluid, and flightless lifestyle.
    Clover: I apologize. Unfortunately, I have never been good at... (puts on sunglasses) breaking the ice.
    <The penguin storms off as a faint YEEEEAAAAHhhhh peals in the distance>
    End Scene

    15.)What previous raiding experience do you have?

    I have been serious raiding since Ulduar in WotLK and have cleared the hardest difficulty (cutting edge equivalent) basically every raid tier since then, with the exceptions of filler raids like Trial of Valor and Crucible of Storms.

    In BfA, my raid group in <Handicap Hangtime> got Alliance Hall of Fame for G'huun on a two day, seven hour raid schedule. After that, things started slowly falling apart due to apathy but we still managed cutting edge on Jaina and 7/8M Eternal Palace before we threw in the towel in October.

    16.)What can we expect from you in our raids?

    I'll show up ready to raid and stay motivated the entire raid night. I know that no one likes having their time wasted so I show up prepared and keep distractions to a minimum.

    I understand that not every fight is good for every class/spec, so I will not complain if I'm sat for an encounter. If someone is streaming I will watch that, and I will help look over raid logs to find ways to improve.

    I also make horrible puns and I'm not sorry about it.

    17.)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. Can you handle this kind of environment?

    As I mentioned above I have been progression raiding for a long time. I understand the requirements and expectations and I have no problem with spending hours on the same boss.

    18.)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.

    I know that some of my boss kills have rather underwhelming parses, but that is frequently a result of my play style. I will volunteer to do whatever role is necessary, even if that means doing mechanics at a loss to my personal dps.

    As an example, on Ashvane I would almost always run to the farthest corals during the burn phase to make sure that they would get broken. On our first kill it proved useful as I life gripped a person with the azerite beam into position to break the coral.

    19.)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?


    20.)How did you hear about us?

    Only a small warning, right now (at least from what Pringles told me) Armory might be a little weird. I know he said it wasn’t showing proper gear for him, so may be something with the API changing?

    Hi there,

    our first heroic raid is tonight at 7 PM EST. Are you good to come on in and wipe (I MEAN LEARN) with us?

    Also, too true about Rutenio and boomkins in general.

    If you don't mind me raiding cross-server tonight I can definitely show up.
    If you require a server transfer first it might be a little sketchy because my mailbox and bags are a mess at the moment but I could certainly try to do so.

    A x-realm raid is fine, I wouldnt want you to transfer and then all your mods and goodies explode before you have any time to fix it all. Get Rutenio to invite you tonight, assuming you have him on your list.
