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

    I'm not necessarily looking for a new guild immediately. However, I'm looking for a guild that is a little more aggressive with their schedule and preparation. I'm currently in a 7/10M guild that raid 6 hours per week. I would love join a group for the next raid Tier that wants to push harder and look towards achieving hall of fame for Alliance or beyond. Which is what I'm hoping for here, that you'll keep my application on file should you find yourself in need of a Resto Shaman next Tier.

    My current group is a good group, I have no huge complaints, but there is little going on outside of those 6 hours as a group. There are a select few who push keys, but, they already have two dedicated healers for their high keys teams, and little interest outside of those two groups for pushing keys. There is little to no interest in alt raids or Heroic/AOTC sales.

    So, while I do enjoy the 6 hours of raiding a week with them, a group who raids 3 days a week is more of a sweet spot for me. Especially if the group is more active on off days.


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

    No

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

    I do not. I've talked with justsidious a few times on Twitch, but never played with him in game.

    10.)Do you have any alts worth mentioning?

    Not really, my fire mage is getting there, but nothing special. I would like to level some other healer classes so I can learn them as well as my Shaman to get back to being more helpful with developing raid strategies.

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

    Audible directions work the best for me by far. So, a combination of DBM and also modifying weak auras for specific sound ques for things I need on each fight. Outside of that, I prep using websites like mythictrap and watching anything limit max puts out.

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

    I'm competitive and I enjoy the story and gameplay. But, it's also finding comraderie in a good guild that really keeps the game fun on those bosses that take 2-3 weeks to grind out..

    I haven't raided seriously since MoP because I was too busy with real life for awhile to think about it. Shadowlands looked like fun and I'm in a very stable place with career now so I decided to give it a try. I'm really enjoying it so far. As I said above, I don't think I've found the perfect fit for a guild yet, but, I've currently got one that makes the game enjoyable and I'm enjoying finishing up the raid tier with.


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

    MadSkillzz youtube/discord is a great source for resto shamans. Additionally, I keep up with wowhead/icyveins/noxxic and just research comparing my own logs and trying gear sets with different stat weights and finding what best fits my play style. A lot of reviewing wowanalyzer between pulls for new fights.

    Maybe it's just my class, but BiS lists do not seem to be as meaningful as they used to be (except for trinkets). Play style and the variety of different 226 pieces from both raid and M+ puts it more on the player to recognize what secondary stats give them the best advantage for their play style and specific encounter. You can find resto shamans with a ton of haste or resto shamans with 0 haste both on the front page of warcraft logs. Understanding that concept seems key this expansion.


    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?

    Regardless of what they say, I probably just nod and assume they are from Florida, cause you never what to expect from Floridaman next.

    15.)What previous raiding experience do you have?

    Starting raiding seriously in Kara in BC through ICC. Skipped Cata. Raided again in MoP where I started playing Resto Shaman. Life got pretty busy there and I did not raid in WoD and only raided casually at the start of Legion. I did not play BfA at all.

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

    Consistency is probably the biggest thing. I enjoy the challenging fights and the progression grind. It does usually take getting hit with a mechanic a couple times to become proficient at it, but, I think that's everyone. You only get so much out of a video without seeing it in person.

    You can expect me to put a lot of research in for my class and how to best handle the fight, like I said, I'm competitive and I want to down bosses and see my name up there in parses. You can also expect me to offer up suggestions or insights on general strategy if I think I see something that can be improved. I often will dig into guides and videos on fights where the guild is hitting a wall and see what strategies can be implemented to help push past 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?

    Yes, I'm serious about progression, and downing a boss the first time after 30 hours of wipes is a pretty satisfying feeling. I will usually get more upset at myself for screwing up a mechanic than anyone else will get. I also recognize I do not know everything about my own class, so I'm always open to feedback on playstyle. As far as raid attendance, in any progression guild, we are all adults and should recognize not showing up impacts everyone's night. Sometimes life happens, but, I will always be there or let officers know as far in advance as possible that I'd not be making it. I'd say I don't view it any differently than a job, but, that's a lie because I'd be way more likely to blow off a day of work and use some sick time than skip a raid.

    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.



    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?

    Yes

    20.)How did you hear about us?
