[u/]Guild History:[/u]
Well I wont bore u with the crappy little guilds i was in whilst gearing. The First meaningful guild I was in was "Sanctum of Chaos" I was there for a long time while however the guild pretty much disbanded as members didn’t turn up to raids or just simply come on at all. Then I went to "The Soulflayer Syndiacte" but was pressured to leave by my IRL friends in "Isis", however after being here for a while now the guild dispanded on July 20th due to a lack of members not turning up to raid nights.

[u/]Why do you want to join this guild:[/u]
I myself have heard alot of good things about you guys as raiders, and I have also been in pugs with some of you guys in the past and you all seem like nice mature people.


[u/]Raid Experience:[/u]
I have raid experience, in all WotLK raids,
NAXX - 10/25
Ony's Lair - 10/25
OS 0D 10/25
Bits of Ulduar
TotC 10/25
ICC-10 (12/12), 8/12HC)
ICC-25 (12/12), 4/12HC)

[u/]My Usual playing hours:[/u]
My playing hours are most of the day eveyday as my new job is very slack :P

[u/]My Mainspec:[/u]
Well as my main spec is destro.. there is'nt really much to do in terms of button pressing
My rotation is:
1) Life Tap (as I have glyph)
2) Curse of the elements/doom (depending on other locks)
3) Immolate dot
4) Conflagrate
5) Chaos Bolt
6) Incinerate as spam until Immolate drops

[u/]Do you have anything else you wish to add:[/u]
Well I know my class inside out, and I am an extremely happy and friendly person who gets along with everyone :D (I also got 450 Tailoring, Ench, Mining and JC on my chars).

Nice apply.

1 thing you seem to be overhitcapped atm. But that can't really be helped atm looking at your gear and your trinket. Gl :)

Dear Gurdinator,

thank you for your application, I do have a few questions though:

1. What benefits do you see for a raid in taking a destruction warlock?
2. What are your thoughts about demonology?
3. What was the main reason for you to choose 1 point in destructive reach? (not saying it's a wrong thing here, just curious if you have the right reasons for it)
4. I realize that your weapon is most likely the reason for you having so much hit, however, why did you choose your boot enchant and what alternative enchants for raiding could you imagine?
5. I am a bit puzzled with your gemming. In some items you use sp + crit gems on yellow sockets (like your neck or boots), in others you use sp + haste gems. Another thing is that you are not going for the +7 spellpower socket bonus in your gloves and put a red gem in that blue socket for a benefit of 23 sp over 19sp + 10 spirit and in your weapon on the contrary you are going for the 8 haste socket bonus by getting 24sp, 10 spi and 18 haste over 46 sp. Explain why you made those specific choices
6. Fitting the question above, in what way would you prioritize your stats? Which stats are you mainly going for, which 2nd, which 3rd and so on (example: def>stam>dodge, something like that for casters).
7. It's good that you at least added some dps screenshot, however every guild will prefer a raiding environment over a target dummy parse. I have been so free to look up Isis' World of Logs and searched for a report with you: here
8. Do you happen to read any theorycrafting sites on the internet concerning warlocks and if so, which site are you mainly using?

I am looking forward to hear your answers to these questions so we can go on with evaluating your application :)

Best regards
Lanius

Fist of all ty for the replies and advice. :D
Now to answer them . . .

(1) Well I say I am a destruction raider however in some fights it's more DPS viable to switch to my afflic spec, fights such as Deathwhisper and even LK.

(2) I don't really know what it is with demo, to an extent I find them a bit boring, this is probably due to me being demo whilst levelling, but am slowly gettin back into them.

(3) The reason for this is that as u need 20 destro talents to carry, it was either this or shadowburn which is really not needed in PVE, in addition this reduces my threat from destro spells, which also helps tanks out (not saying your tanks cant keep aggro.) :)

(4) As for this, the reason why I am unfortunately way over hit is because of my staff and trinket as you can see. I am still waiting for my "Dislodged Foreign Object" trinket from Rotface which would drop alot of hit. In additon I have recently changed my 'Icewalker' enchant to 'Tuskarr's Vitality'.

(5) Now as for gemming i have sorted out the glove gem, also the reason for gemming a couple of +crit gems was simply because in ISIS we very very rarely had any Ele Shammys or Moonkins for the raid buffs. So these have been changed back to +12SP +10Haste gems which they were previously.

(6) Provided ur hit capped, SP>Haste>Crit>Spirit (Destuction). I know this might seem confusing as i previously had gemmed a bit fot +crit but as I explained above I figured it viable.

(7) Thank you for finding the logs for me :P

(8) Well I am always on the wow and Elitist Jerks forums checking out the new tricks and tips. Also I find "The Warlocks Den" helpful sometimes.

Cheers again :D

I heard alittle rumour that might or might not be true.

It was that you had to be told and almost hand holded on everything by other locks and that you didn't know about the teleport trick on lk. And after they told you about it you never knew wich teleport "platform" was yours.

This to me seems so weird to someone that always checking out new tricks and tips.

:? ..Well I know the exact person who may have told you this 'Rumour' which the person has taken it up on themselves to start. However if u choose to listen to my side of the story then it will prove how far off the 'rumour' is.

(clearly) on the fact that affliction is much better than your main raiding spec destruction.
