Your Character Character Name: Ofdoom Server: Jaedenar Level: 90 Class: Warlock Race: Troll /played (optional):
Talents / Glyphs / Equipment Raiding Spec & Glyphs: I guess you can see all that on my armory link. However, I switch between using glyph of fear and glyph of conflagrate depending on the encounter I also switch between Burning Rush and Unbound will on the tier 4 talents.
Why did you choose that spec and those glyphs? Simply because I've found these glyphs and talents to be most useful. I'm also currently most comfortable with playing destruction.
History When did you first start playing World of Warcraft? Early Vanilla. Previous/Current Guild(s): On this account, in this expansion: Riders of Honor Reasons for leaving: The guild has some good players, but only some aren't enough. They let anyone raid without forming a true core group that could progress without massive problems, because that don't seem to be a priority for the leaders. There was no consecvenses for failing, even on the simplest things, and that is not how you keep a raid group together, soft-core or not. In short: I didn't agree on how they raided, and I am ready for something new.
Your raiding Experience: (from when you started playing the game to now [at the appropriate level of the raid instances]) As stated in the previous question, this account is new, and was made in Sepmtember 2013 after a hiatus from the game. My former account was made in early vanilla and I have played the game on and off since. In vanilla I raided with a guild called Reckless on Dunemaul. I raided ZG, MC, BWL and AQ. I also did a few bosses in Naxx40, but never hard progress. In TBC I started out small with only progressing in Karazhan, along my friend and his self-made guild. After some time I got bored with that and started raiding with a guild called Serendipity on Vashj where we did pretty much every 25man raid in the expansion until it's end. We managed to kill twins in Sunwell before the nerf. My highlight of raiding was in WOTLK with a guild formed by former members of Serendipity, called Discworld. With them I did Naxx25 and OS. Some time before Ulduar I started raiding with a guild called Verve on the same realm, where we had realm first on Undying. Not far into Ulduar I decided to take my first break from the game, but came back when ICC was released. After that I started my education and needed some time from raiding. In Cata i only experienced DS normal and some bosses on HC with some friends.
What hours of the day can you raid between? 18:00-00:00 What days can you raid on? Any day except the weekend. Will you be at the raid location on time? I usually always am, and if not I try my best to tell you the reason beforehand. Will you go AFK for dinner during the raid? Nah. I eat dinner before raids, but i might fetch a banana.
Gear Do you have the legendary meta gem? It's safely located within my head-slot item. Do you have the legendary cloak? Enchanted and ready to use!
About You Your name: Mads U Your age: 21 Your country: Norway A bit about who you are and what you do for a living: I used to work as a chef, but had to put that on hiatus, because of health issues. Now I recently started working an assistant at a primary school. I guess you have to get to know me to find out more!
Why do you want to join us? I want to raid with a guild on par with my expectation, and prepare for mythic raiding and WoD.
Why should we choose you over another member of your class? I kill things with my spells and such without dying and killing my fellow players!
What are your in-game goals? Kill bosses, make friends and have fun while doing it!
Computer specification: New Asus gamer laptop! I run wow without any problems, even on the most demanding encounters! Internet Connection: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3382320779 Do you have problems with your connection/computer? None. If there is a storm i might.
Do you like talking on Teamspeak both during and outside of raids? I am very social and I speak fluent english, so no problems there.
Knowledge and theory-craft Do you read theory about your class? Yeah, I watch videos when I feel I have to, and from there i pick up stuff pretty quickly. How do you keep yourself up to date? I read patch notes the second they are released. Which sites and forums do you visit? Icy-veins, MMO champions, and in some cases askmrrobot.
Anything else you'd like to note? A big motivation for me is that I get to play with my to closest friends, Zippó and Ûriel, and would love to keep raiding with them (they are also applying)! If you have any questions as to why I play on a new account or anything else for that matter, don't hesitate to ask! If you feel I missed something I will happily do an interview on TS.

One thing I forgot to mention: I have no problem that you use the forum to reply, but I personally find it easier to have a convo in game, as compared to replying on forum threads. So if I happen to be online when you are ready to make your decision, I'd happily talk to you in-game. :)
