Character, main and offspecs: MS Restoration, OS Elemental
What is your main spec and why?
My main spec is Restoration and the reason why is because i enjoy keeping people alive! x3
Which talents do you use and which changes (if any) do you make for each specific encounter of the most current raid?
Aight so the talents:
 Unleash Life / Torrent : Depending on the encaunter i swap betwen these two talents i think Unleash Life is a great choice on the fights that you don't need to move alot and can provide you with realy big chain heals. Torrent is a great choice on fights that require alot of movement.
 Gust of Wind/Graceful Spirit/Wind Rush Totem: Gust of Wind is realy good to quickly reposition urself in tight situations but it doesn't benefit ur raid asmuch as the other two talents. Graceful Spirit is a great choice in those fights that require you to move alot and having ur Spiritwalker's Grace on lower cd helps alot. Wind Rush Totem ill spec that when there is need for it but i personaly like Graceful Spirit alot.
 Lightning Surge Totem : I Think Lightning Surge Totem is the only useful talent in this tier. Earthgrab totem is weak since the roots break from dmg and Voodoo Totem is just useless in PvE.
 Ancestral Guidance : I think that this talent is the best of the 3 since its always nice to have a short aoe healing cooldown ready for all of the spread pressure. I still need to experiment abit with Crashing Waves/Deluge to see if some combinations of the talents are worth runing.
 Ancestral Protection Totem/Earthen Shield Totem : Ancestral Protection Totem is a great choice for bosses like Tichondrius. Earthen Shield Totem is my favourite just because of the low cd and the absorbtion it provides is realy nice eather for dropping it on tanks when they are under alot of pressure or just to reduce raidwide dmg.
 Cloudburst Totem/Echo of the Elements : Cloudburst Totem is great for those high pressure fights where you have to group up alot and it helps out alot compared to the other 2 talents in the tier. Echo of the Elements is something iv'e tested abit and i usualy run it on fights that you have to spread alot since people won't be in range for ur Cloudburst Totem.
 High Tide : This talent is the most useful talent in this tier since Ascendance has a long CD and you don't get much use out of it. Also Wellspring is kinda clunky to use and the mana cost is not worth for what you get out of it.
**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 guil:smile: **
I mostly play Elemental in M+ but in my old guild iv'e also played it if needed for some bosses. (39 Traits in Elemental) Its abit low since im focusing on my Resto spec. For legendary's im using Pristine Proto-Scale Girdle (Belt) and Uncertain Reminder (Helm). I like playing Elemental and id be willing to make it my main spec if it would benefit the guild but obviously i prefer Resto more.
Do you have any significant alts?
I have 6 alts in total : Druid(Shayé-Resto), Priest(Meyia-Shadow/Holy), Demon Hunter(Kyrúi-Tank) all of these are on Kazzak other alts are scattered across different servers Stormscale,Wildhammer on those servers i have another Shaman(Zalam), Monk(Héalméistér),Death Knight (Warenn)
Did you ever change classes and do you consider doing so again in the future?
Back in Vanilla i was playing my rogue as a main till WoTLK then swapped from alliance to horde and started playing my Death Knight then sometime mid WoTLK i decided to get involved in PvP thats when i started maining my Shaman and from that day i still keep playing it c:

Raiding experience and guild history:
What guilds were you in before, why did you join them and why did you leave them?
In Legion i was in Chaotic Intent on my old server (Wildhammer) i joined them because i used to raid with them back in the day in WoTLK and i left after a few months because we didn't raid alot and only raided heroic and i wanted to experience mythic raiding thats why i transfered to Kazzak and joined the guild Ikona i was in the guild ikona till the end when it stopped raiding because of alot of reasons one being it was a Slovene only guild and we didn't have enaugh players to fill our mythic team.
Please list all the bosses you have killed when their raid tier was still the cutting edge:
Skipped MoP and WoD
Legion: 7/7 Emerald Nightmare , 2/3 Trial of Valor, 6/10 Nighthold
What sources and/or methods do you use to keep your class knowledge up to date?
Since i came back in Legion i check alot of different sites like Icy Veins , WoW Logs to check what the best players are going with and try and understand why its the best possible solution for that fight / raid tier.
How do you prepare for a new bossfight?
I try and find Shaman PoV videos on youtube, try it on PTR if i realy wanna get into it and try and read asmuch as possible about it.
Why you are applying:
What are your goals in this game? My goals in this game are to acheve asmuch as i possibly can weather it is to clear mythic tiers while they are still relevant or to climb ontop of the arena ladder i will always give it my best at what i do and always strive to improve and be the best i can at what i do.
What are the reasons why you specifically want to join Rock Paper Scissors?
The raid times are realy good for me since im quite busy with work and i don't have a stable working schedual. Also i admire your progression for only raiding 2 times per week.
More about you:
Do you have any days or times you're unable to raid?:
If i work in the afternoon i sometimes finish at around 19.30-20.00 on Thursdays then i need about 5-10 min to get back home that would be the only issue sometimes but i always try and keep people posted if that does happen. for Sunday raids i don't have any problems since im free.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself as a person?
I'm a laid back person who enjoys playing the game in general i try to get along with everyone asmuch as i can. I like playing with friends doing mythic+,PvP, anything to pass the time and have fun. I always give my best eather for pushing higher M+ keys or for Progress Raiding or Competitive PvP.
What is your proudest moment/achievement in WoW?
My proudest moments in wow are probably back in TBC raiding karazhan and clearing it i think that was the most memorable raiding experience in all of my time while playing wow. Proudest achievement would be climbing the arena ladder in cataclysm and reaching rank 10/9 on the battlegroup (misery) wich was 2700+.
What is your /played?
Total : 169days , 5hours, 4minutes,26seconds
This Level : 54 days, 17 hours , 30 minutes, 46 seconds
Anything else you would like to add or explain?
Id just like to add that im a reliable person and i do everything in my power to improve/progress with the players im playing with. Also im open to consructive criticism/suggestions of what to do better.
