Also have a shitton of decent logs that were private, all put in a screenshot.
Some others from other mythic kills went lost ^^
Character, main and offspecs:
Restoration > Balance
What is your main spec and why?
Restoration Druid, i like to heal - It's a Whole different way of approaching and raiding, you have the tactics + the healing sorting. Healing is different from try to try, so it offers challenges to overcome all the time, which i enjoy.
Druid inparticular is my choice of healer, since i enjoy the mobility they have and that it's not reliant on casting heals too much.
Which talents do you use and which changes (if any) do you make for each specific encounter of the most current raid?
Tier 1 - Cenarion Ward is the "go to" talent, it's a great HoT as it is, + possible to extend with Flourish (lvl 100 Talent) and empower with your artifact ability. I have used other talents at points, I used Abundance on Chronomatic M, since we needed some fast spothealing for Time Release, and abundance offers you instant Healing Touch / 100% Regrowth cast.
I never played prosperity.
Tier 2 - Discplacer Beast, always use this. It adds that Little extra utillity to your class, i only use it as a scapegoat if i got myself in a bad spot, so it's nice to have if dash or Travel form is not enough to get you away from harm.
Tier 3 - Guardian/Balance Affinity, Guardian is the "go to", it's just pure dmg reduction, doesn't affect your gameplay.
I've used balance for fights like Cenarius (i was on tankhealing the drake duty) - So it's easier to reach the other end of the room with those extra few yards.
Tier 4 - w/e - I've used everything, it depends what sort of CC is needed for the fight, typhoon on Il'gynoth etc, and Mighty bash for a ST stun.
Tier 5 - Cultivation - Cultivation is really good, if you play it right and use its procs to your advantage. If you place rejuvs right, it's basicly a free HoT you get from a single HoT cast, + it adds to your Mastery, so it empowers other potential HoTs on the target.
Tier 6 - Inner Peace - 2 Minute tranq is okay - Tranq is a valuable healing CD to have, specially with Legendary empowered boots. So 2 min tranq is almost always a positive thing to have.
Ofcourse there are fights where having it on 3 Min CD fits the encounters lenght better, for those i go Spring Blossoms.
If people are stacked all the time, Spring Blossoms actually outheals the value of the extra tranq healing.
Germination is a Waste of mana, unless you're running mastery stack, which is not good for raiding as rdruid.
Tier 7 - Flourish - This comboed the right way with your Artifact Ability (Essence of G'hanir) Is basically a minor healing CD. Wha ti usually so is have x amount of rejuvs thrown out, then cast WG.- Flourish - Essence - WG cast 2.
potentially it adds 12 HoTs of empowered WG + the rejuvs alrdy thrown out + the procs from Tearstone.
Flourish adds great posibilities to the druid and is therefor always my go to talent.
To what extent do you play each of your offspecs?
(i.e. Do you use them in raids / are you up to date with knowledge, practice and interface / do you have any artifact power and legendaries / do you enjoy them / would you be willing to make them your main spec if beneficial for the guild)
I haven't raided as balance, because i haven't been asked too.
I'm up to date with what is best for the best, trinkets, stats etc etc.
I know how to play the balance druid, but one thing is to do it on a dummy and do it on a Mythic Progress boss.
Neither i don't have any logs to show off my Balance skills.
I'm 36 in my balance Weapon, with 0 legendaries - but i do enjoy playing it. And i try to play it outside raid in PvE content as much as possible, to try and not get "rusty" in the spec.
Do you have any significant alts?
Shaman (890/893) Ele/Resto. Did Splitruns early NH as resto.
Did you ever change classes and do you consider doing so again in the future?
I change Class from expansion to expansion, not that I need to, i enjoy druid and i don't see me changing class anytime soon, at all.
With that said, i'm open to changing class for the better of the guild, if need be and i got the time to Invest into a potential Reroll.
Equipment and interface
What are the specifications of your computer?
I got no idea tbh, it runs wow just fine with 100 FPS during raids, i've never experienced problems with it.
If this is really important i'll get a mate to figure it out for me, as i'm rly not into Pc's.
Do you have headphones and a microphone?
What is your latency on Kazzak-EU?
Which addons do you use?
Exorsus Raid Tools - For CD Tracking Mainly.
Tell me when
Can you link a video of one of your bosskills? If not, please upload a screenshot of your UI.
My WA for boss abilities is in the middle of my screen - AA will be top left corner.
My raidframes in this pic looks messed up, but i'm uses to it + it looks better if not MT/OT assigned
Do you click abilities or do you use keybindings (or a combination of both)?
I have mouseover on all direct heals and HoTs, MB 1-5 that is.
For Everything else i try to keep on either Shift or ctrl 1-5, and i ahve the standard keys assigned as well, like Q,E,R,T,X,Z and also shift + Ctrl.
Do you use any macros? (e.g. mouseover macros)
yes Mousebuttong 1-5 (got a naga mouse) So it's easy like that.
Raiding experience and guild history:
What guilds were you in before, why did you join them and why did you leave them?
Consanguineus, Kazzak - Too casual for me, and a lot of casual minded and bad player sin the guild, so idecided i could be doing better than the guild was doing, hence why i left.
Bloom - Draenor - Left beacuse too much drama.
The Misty Moon Massive - Deifas Brotherhood - Real soon after i joined i had to stop raiding for a while because of RL Family Issues, when i came back the guild had disbanded.
I'll be more than happy to explain exacltly why i had to bhreak to some officers, but not on a public forum
Please list all the bosses you have killed when their raid tier was still the cutting edge:
All WoD Content.
En 7/7 M
ToV 2/3 M
NH 10/10 HC and 5/10 M atm
(see optional template below)
What sources and/or methods do you use to keep your class knowledge up to date?
Druid Discord - Note i use this very carefully, a lot of unexperienced people in there, so i mainly use it to discuss minor Things.
I use my Network, i got a lot of friends that play resto druid at a top 200 level, and i ask them if i'm unsure of anything.
Otherwise i actually just read the patchnotes and i should know what would be best for my Spec.
How do you prepare for a new bossfight?
Videos + read guides mainly, I don't know if it's a thing in RPS, but to have a chat with the healing team, is something im used to, atleast before we enter a fight on mythic, so we all are clear on what/how to heal, and have the same idea.
I think it's great, it adds to the synergy between healers, and saves valuable mana.
Why are you applying to our guild?
At eyesight you're a really great guild, raid times fit me perfectly, i only want to dedicate 2 days, but those 2 days i want to raid A LOT. You might be in need of a restodruid, as i actually talked to your current resto druid ingame.
And i think we have the same mindset, to clear content with exceptional players, but not to Invest a Whole lot of days, so there's time for Real Life, other content,.
What i seek is also a strong social core in my coming guild, so that i not only log on for raids and play, but hang out with my "teammates" outside of actual raiding. I think that is important.
What are your goals in this game?
To clear content before new is released, even tho back with ToV it was rly sketchy:P - But also to have fun.
When i say have fun, ofcourse i mean sitting in MoS on the nagglfar, for the 200th time today and somehow have a laugh, but fun for me is also to see a Progress in raiding, since raiding is why i started playing the game, and won't stop Again.
What are the reasons why you specifically want to join Rock Paper Scissors?
Again - Your Progress is really good, especially compared to the days you dedicate to raiding. Other than that i feel like i will fi tin, and i ahve the same mindset.
More about you
Do you have any days or times you're unable to raid?:
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself as a person?
I'm only 20, i was told you're all mainly above 25, which doesn't affect me.
I've been palying with Guys in the age from 18-40+ ever since i started, and i still hang out with some of them ingame, age doesn't matter to me personally.
I am 20 and like to have fun sometimes, but my experience in raiding makes me so that i do fit in i would say, life and the game has made me very mature.
If i were to describe myself it would be, Positive, outgoing, fun and active. + I have humor, i think.
What is your proudest moment/achievement in WoW?
Malkorok kill in SoO, gotta be.
We had 200+ wipes on the boss ( House of Pride was my guild at that time i think) - And that feeling you get from killing a boss that has been causing you so much trouble is just :* - Love it!
What is your /played?
59 Days, 4 Hours, 27 minutes and 22 seconds:))
