Your Character Character Name: Trolica Server: The Maelstrom Level: 90 Class: Hunter Race: Troll /played: 145 days
Talents / Glyphs / Equipment
Raiding Spec & Glyphs: I switch my talents and glyphs based on the encounter, depending on the abilites needed trying to find a perfect balance between damage output and survivability. Currently I run with:
1. Couching Tiger, Hidden Chimera: for extra Detterence needed on Immerseus HC 2. Binding Shot: Best CC available to hunters right now 3. Aspect of the Hawk, no-brainer. Best DPS boost but I sometimes switch to Spirit Bond for extra healing (Malkorok HC) 4. Dire Beast: Pure DPS boost 5. Murder of Crows: Depending on the fight I will switch that with Blink Strikes if there's a need for extra adds damage 6. Glaive Toss: Again, DPS boost but I switch to Barrage on adds heavy fights
Any situational gear As hunters do not have true off-specs I have a PVP gear set, that I earned last season. Haven't been doing much PVP lately though.
Trade Skills / Level Profession 1: Engineering / 600 Profession 2: Jewelcrafting / 600 First Aid: 600 Cooking: 576 Fishing: 403 I'm gonna be honest here: It's boring as shit
History When did you first start playing World of Warcraft? I've started playing in 2006 just after the European Launch, I've leveled slowly as that was my first serious MMORPG. After hitting 60 I've got into PVP in the old system. I've managed to accuire High Warlord PVP rank which I recognize as my highest achievement in the game to date. In the Burning Crusade I've raided almost every raid instance except Sunwell, we haven't been much succesful with BT, I believe we stopped after 3rd or 4th boss and guild disbanded. I've stopped playing soon after that and came back in late Cataclysm, just before 4.4 hit. I've cleared the DS and soon left the game again as my guildmates stopped playing. I've came back in patch 5.1 but wasn't been able to find a proper raiding guild due to the server being almost dead on the Horde side. I've joined a polish guild for ToT progression, but soon they've moved to another server. After that happened I've been invited to another polish guild with which I've progressed through last wing of ToT. After SoO opened we rushed quickly through normal mode. I was present for almost every progression kill except Paragons of the Klaxxi. Soon after we moved to HC mode (starting with Nourshen, again, present on the kill) I've been moved to second raiding group which struggled for a long time trying to clear first bosses on Normal difficulty. After several RL changes (I was a RL for a short time back then) we managed to clear normal SoO again but the rotation of the players and lack of skill or gear don't allow us to progres further into HC mode. To current date we have almost 100 wipes on HC Immerseus (Best try: 33 energy) and over 20 wipes on HC Nourushen (best try: 12%).
Previous/Current Guild(s): It's hard to specify every guild I was in but I dp have several honorable mentions:
Kamikaze - Vanilla PVP Guild, that had more Rank 14 players than any other Horde guild on the server (Source: http://wowpedia.org/Server:The_Maelstrom_Europe) Mortifere - Guild I used to raid with BC Nerds Inc - Guild I used to raid with Cata and early MoP Daemonium - Polish guild that I'm currently in
Your raiding Experience: Specified above
Raiding What hours of the day can you raid between? 19-23
What days can you raid on? Any 3 days in the week
Will you be at the raid location on time? I'm always on time, at least 15 minutes before the start. I've used to help my current RL to prepare for the raids (Inviting people, discussing tactics, checking buffs available etc.)
Will you go AFK for dinner during the raid? No. Why would anyone do that?
Gear Do you have the legendary meta gem? Yes Do you have the legendary cloak? Yes
About You Your name: Michał Kałużny Your age: 22 Your country: Malta, but I'm originally from Poland A bit about who you are and what you do for a living: I'm a 9-to-5 developer with 7 years experience, working for an international corporation. I live with my girlfriend that is also playing World of Warcraft. I used to be video games journalist but after moving to Malta I haven't been writing anymore. I'm a huge video games fan, I own almost every mainstream console released in last 30 years and over 400 genuine games.
Why do you want to join us? goto: "What are your in-game goals?" section.
Why should we choose you over another member of your class? No idea to be honest. I've seen a lot of players better than me. And everytime I met one I asked how to get better. And then applied that tips to my own gameplay. That's what I believe is most important - being able to understand you're not the best but trying to get as close as possible to the top.
What are your in-game goals? To be the very best and catch them all. And if you are not familiar with this classical piece of child animation: I just want to progress. I hate standing in the same spot for weeks without even trying to do more. Unfortunately the people I play the game with don't agree with me on that one. That's why I apply here - because I will do everything to achieve my goals.
Computer specification: I use two computers for raiding: iMac 27" late 2011 and MacBook Pro Retina late 2013 (top of the shelf model). I have a stock Apple Keyboard and Steelseries World of Warcraft Mouse (17 buttons)
Internet Connection: Do you have problems with your connection/computer? Usually not, but given the fact that Malta is a small island we rarily have full-blown outbreaks due to the problems with old Power Plant, but that doesn't happen more than twice a year. Last time we experienced this issue was mid-February I believe. The goverment is working on a better solution though.
Speed Test Unfortunately as I rent my place I have no control over the Internet plan or provider. On the contract I have with my landlord it states 30/10 mbps connection, but I was unable to get that speed. http://www.speedtest.net/result/3391167324.png
Do you like talking on Teamspeak both during and outside of raids? I spend a lot of time on my current guild Teamspeak, but I'm a little bit afraid of new people, in the start I will probably be just listening trying to learn more about you guys but for sure as we get to know each other better I will get more talkactive :)
Knowledge and theory-craft I visit mmo-champion and elitist jerks at least once a day. Being a coder I spend a lot of time online, and visiting those sites became my daily routine. Even though I have mathematical background I do not do any calculations by myself - I prefer to trust people with better experience than me. I'm also subscribing to the /r/wow subreddit, but there's hardly any gamplay related content over there.
Logs from your previous guild/raids *required: Unfortunately my current group failed to create a proper logs environment so there's a lot of reports from different players, with most current being this one: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/guilds/4179
Anything Else? Not really, thank you for your time though!
