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

    A friend (Forne, monk healer) and I are looking for a more fulfilling, challenging environment where we can progress and play with like-minded individuals, who take accountability for personal performance (executing mechanics consistently)

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

    No

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

    Not yet. Forne (a current app) and I are friends irl

    10.)Do you have any alts worth mentioning?

    looking to gear my 390 druid to use as an alternate when my rogue isn't mechanically optimal

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

    Research, forethought, and consistency are the most reliable ways to handle mechanics. I always research fights to learn what the boss does and how I can use my class specific abilities in addition to my brain to overcome the mechanic. For example, I quickly learned from a couple pulls on mythic Mekka that I can easily shadowstep to the boss after the transportation to nullify the miscalculated launch mechanic, which made the raid's life that much easier. Weakauras and Deadly Boss Mods are also beneficial, but these visual aids don't compare to the ability to think critically during, before, and after a fight to find ways to overcome mechanics.

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

    I've played the game for 13 years, because I like it. The visuals, music, and lore have always been a draw for me, but those things pale in comparison to my drive to progress through challenging content with friends that i make in game.

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

    There are a number of resources for rogues, including excellent streamers, such as Musclebrah, Dratnos, and Undad. For research purposes I lean heavily on the Ravenholdt discord and website, coupled with Icey Veins. Bloodmallet is also a good resource for trinkets and Azerite traits. None of these BiS lists can compare with simming your character, so i use Raidbots coupled with the Pawn app to make detailed, incremental decisions based on the fight and spec

    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?

    They say, "I am homeless, I am gay, I have AIDS, I'm new in town. please refer to me as 'they'"
    I respond with, "Do you mind? I'm in a M+ right now"


    15.)What previous raiding experience do you have?

    I've raided since vanilla, including BC (Illidan, Kael'thalas mu'ru sunwell, ZA Bear mount runs), WoTLK (Lich King Heroic, Immortal in Naxxramas 25 man, Sarth 3 drakes). Sporadic raiding through other expansions in Cata, WoD, and MoP until I started back in Legion. Heroic experience only in Legion in a guild with friends. I stayed with the same guild until about 3 months ago when i started mythic BoD with Divinity, where we cleared up to Mekka.

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

    Consistency, preparation, and patience are staples of my gameplay. I don't often make the same mistake twice, and I do my best to nullify mistakes altogether by researching bosses and mechanics beforehand. I am well aware that it may take a full night of raiding to progress even on one mechanic; however, I expect that once progress has been achieved, individuals and the raid look and move forward, never digressing to past mistakes. I look to keep things light and playful when raiding, so long as progression is up to the standard. I have no issue with keeping things fun and upbeat during raid times, because once the pull starts, its game time.

    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, this is usually stems from productive environments where people are held accountable. I understand the importance of min/maxing dps, so long as individuals are doing so with the constraint of excellent execution of fight mechanics.

    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 understand that parses may be an important part of your recruiting process. I also understand that my current parses for M BoD aren't necessarily up to snuff. That being the case, I came into a guild to clear Mythic BoD, and the time clearing the bosses was mostly progression for me, so I focused on executing the mechanics to a tee while playing defensively rather than aggressively as far as dps goes. However, once we reached Mythic Mekkatorque, we were all progressing together, which is were my dps hit its stride. If you want a clear picture of what I can bring to your progression team, I recommend you look over these progression logs rather than farm logs, wipe #31 in particular was our best pull of the night.

    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?
