What is your mainspec and why?:
My mainspec currently is frost. I´ve played frost since fire got gutted in the beginning of the expansion. Currently im gonna play frost for ToS aswell unless i would be told to do otherwise. I play frost because its the best spec, and i always try to play the best spec so i can benefit the raid the most. Not much else reasoning behind it since i will switch around if needed.
What talents do you use and why?:
Level 15: Lonely winter. simply because its the best atm.
Level 30: Shimmer. if i play Glacial spike i might take ice floes to be able to cast while moving.
Level 45: Incanter's flow. simply because its the best atm.
Level 60: Splitting ice. its way ahead of Frozen touch right now, especially after the Thermal Void nerfs.
Level 75: frigid winds. neither really good.
Level 90: unstable magic for single target. arctic gale for AoE
Level 100: Since the 7.2.5 patch ive tried out both Thermal Void and Glacial spike. Pre 7.2.5 i played Thermal void only, but after the patch Glacial spike is almost equal and on fights where priority target damage is a must i could much likely go for glacial spike since its offers alot faster damage than thermal void does outside cooldowns. So for ToS i would likely be switching between the two.
How up to date are your offspecs?:
I have 52 traits in arcane, and i have 51 in fire. I have the best legendaries for all specs. So all of my specs are pretty much up to date, and with new content coming out gear will become outdated rather quickly, but i have gear in bank for both fire and arcane if needed.
Do you have any alts?:
I have a shaman and a hunter both in 110, however theyre both only 900ish itemlvl and neither if 52 traits yet. I do sometime play my alts, but i rather spend my time on my main to get everything done before i turn to my other characters, since thats the most important.
Will you accept to reroll if told to?:
If i was told to reroll i would do it since it would benefit the guild more in the long run, however i love my mage and would much rather play that more than anything else. But if it benefits the guild i would always reroll.
Raiding and guild history
What guilds were you in before and why did you leave?:
Prior to this i was in Verge, where i as we formed the guild started as an officer to help the guild the going and then step down. However here 1 week before ToS 2 of our current officers has decided to leave and we're stuck with only 1 officer who wont run it by himself, so it was decided to disband the guild, so here i am.
Before Verge i was in Aphorism where me and some friends started the expansion. they however did not have the same goals as us and there was a clear skill gap between us and them so we left and joined Limit on kazzak (which later was reformed to Verge)
How is your progress in the current content?:
Cleared Nighthold mythic 10/10
How is your progress for old content?:
Cleared ToV mythic 3/3 and cleared EN mythic 7/7
of old old content i cleared all vanilla except naxx where we didnt finish the last wing before TBC
TBC i cleared all the content.
WoTLK i cleared all the content (with you guys )
Cataclysm i cleared everything.
MoP i only cleared the first 2 instances on normal + a few HC bosses.
WoD only cleared HC content.
How do you keep your class knowlegde up to date?:
i use the mage theorycrafting site and use the mage discord. and i use simulationcraft on my own character to optimize it.
How do you prepare for boss fights?:
I study videos, and articles about every boss to know how to approach it and be aware of special mechanics such as the nightorb on guldan.
What addons do you use?:
I use Elvui as a base. then i have bigwigs, weakaura2, bartender, exorsus raidtools, pawn, simulationcraft, angry assingments, RClootcouncil (if you use that), skada, and advanced interface options.

Connection and language:
how is your Internet connection?:
im sitting at a 400/100mbit connection, so latency issues is something that almost never happens unless the company is doing some shenannigans.
i will be available both thursdays and sundays for raid. 2 days suits me very well. also leaving room for me to study on the side with no problems what so ever.
I’m fluent in Danish and English. I have both TS/VT/mumble/Discord etc. alongside with a working headset and I know how to communicate and use my microphone.
What you can expect:
You can expect a dedicated player who knows his class inside out, also you can expect me to have almost 100% attendance. You can expect that I can take criticism if I make a mistake, and will correct that mistake. Also you can expect that I won´t be sitting all silent while raiding. I’m trying to contribute with everything I can to the group.
What are your goals in the game?:
To kill bosses and have fun while doing so in a nice raiding environment, where there is room for fun yet ppl knowing when to be serious. the guild itself is important to me, since a nice atmosphere in the guild gives the better results in the long run and makes the tough times/bosses more fun to deal with. raiding is what i love doing, i love the feeling of killing that annoying boss you wiped on 100 times. i also enjoy doing high m+ keys, and in general PvE related stuff.
Why Rock paper scissors and not any other guild?:
Well, i was previously in RPS, and i screwed up, by being too inconsistent a few times. this however was years back, and i matured alot since then. i loved playing in RPS and had much fun playing with Ratio and Otubin. I chose to apply here before anything else because i would love to get the chance to play with them again, and prove to them that i have grown, and make up for the lost time. beside that as i mentioned before raiding 2 times a week suits me very well!
Any days of the week you cant raid?:
Monday is my only day where i work and wont be able to do stuff until 22:30. all other days are open.
Anything else about yourself you want to share?:
Well im a pretty down to earth guy, who has a passion for the human body and what it can do. i love to workout as in both hitting the gym, going for a run, biking or whatever. but i also have a passion for videogames. as soon as my daily routines are done i tend to be in front of the pc playing games, not only WoW but also games like CS, Dota, Rocket league and such. im also quite the football fanatic as im following my local football team, where i usually watch them play every week.
What is your proudest moment in WoW?:
i have 2. the one being killing the lich king with RPS (not lying), it was an amazing fight and we had it rough sometimes on him. the other being looting my first tier 3 in naxxramas in vanilla.
What is your /played on your main?:
Anyone in Rock paper scissors who can vouch for you?:
Well Ratio and otubin, however they might not want to since how we split up last. but i can cross my fingers other than that, Loutus (Loutus#2874) will vouch for me, along side almost all of Innominatum guild.
Anything else on your mind?:
Not really. if you have any questions or want to have a chat on discord or anything just poke me!
Other than that i look forward to hearing from you.
