Raider Application - Hunter (DPS) - Eph
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:28:36 pm »
Hello, Iron Edge!

I am applying for the main raid.

Character: Eph
Class/Spec: Hunter (DPS)
Member Type: raider

Personal Info:

Hi! Im George, im 22 and i currently live in Portugal and study Molecular Biology, i enjoy gaming, eating, some physical activities and killing bosses. I dont enjoy studying, wiping and the sunlight


I play Marksmanship, as its not only my favourite specc, it is the best performer out of the 3, i enjoy it quite a lot and am an avid theory crafter and i very much prefer the caster feel of MM compared to BM

My MM ilvl is a bit on the low side, at 934/5 equipped for ST depending on legendaries, it holds me back a little bit, but with my simdps at around 1.625m i try to keep up the best i can! ^^

As offspecc i dont really play BM, as its been weaker almost all expansion long and i dont enjoy the playstyle, but if needed im open to the posibility of playing it.

So il cover ST playstyle for marksmanship, as quite a big part of antorus revolves around ST fights.

The main mechanic of marksmanship is Vulnerable, a debuff that increases the damage of your aimed shots by 50% (and an aditional 6% per second with the talent Patient Sniper). So the rotation is based on building focus, opening a vulnerable window, squeezing as many aimed shots as you can and repeat.

Two ways to open vulnerable are Marked Shot, and Windburst, depending on the focus level you have when the vulnerable opens, you can aim for 2 or 3 aimed shots, so for example, on a marked shot cycle with about 45focus and more than 17% haste (minor breakpoint for 2 arcane shots) it will look like: Marked-Arcane-Arcane-Aimed-Aimed (you allways want aimed shots in pairs to maintain the t20 buff) At about 100 focus, you can cast 3 aimeds back to back.

Windburst is simillar but it allows for lower focus to open a vulnerable as it has a cast and travel time which give you an extra GCD compared to marked shot cycles. For most fight thats how it goes, you open a vulnerable, squeeze out as many aimed shots as you can, preferably in pairs, and as soon as you cant fit another aimed shot, you start building your focus for the next cycle.

Cooldowns arent many, we have Trueshot, which increases our haste and critical strike damage, this is to be used at pull if possible, or delayed for important phases, and most importantly for sub20% phases, since another trait gives us stacking critical strike. So ideally for most damage you want a trueshot up every time you have 30 stacks of bullseye and the boss is close to death. Murder of Crows is worth mentioning but its usually used on cooldown regardless or used at 20% hp for quick stacks of Bullseye.


Only a Frost mage at around 935ilvl, decent gear but mediocre legendaries apart from BL ring


Im an engineer and a jewelcrafter so i can allways provide people with gems, repair bot, blingtron and mailboxes!

Raiding Experience:

I started playing during WotLK, LK was the first end of raid boss i ever killed, and i had to pug it! Since i was young back then and couldnt comit to a guild raid schedule, was an amazing experience

After that the most memorable point i have is Firelands where i raidlead for a few weeks, and we even downed some heroic bosses on the first weeks, this was on Frostmane alliance, and i cant really remember the guild name

MoP i mostly didnt play, as time constraints were a big problem, and when warlords rolled in i pretty casually raided a bit, did up to gorefiend mythic aswell, but as expected we hit a wall ^^

When legion rolled in i transfered to kazzak, under the name Frostrunner and joined a casual guild, we ended up getting EN cleared, tho i missed xavius mythic kill saddly. After that i joined an old friend and cleared up to elisande mythic and 3/3m in ToV, but then the guild disbanded. I took a break after that because i didnt like ToS as a raid, and only now when i got back did i do a few mythic fights, clearing up to mistress.

Curently i am 11/11 both Normal and HC!

Previous Guilds:

Most guilds ive been in disbanded, with exeption of Exodia, which i left to join some other friends and very recently i left Issues with Tissues, after a change in Raid Leading left me very unhappy and unenjoying of the raid nights.

I really respect decisive leaders who can admit mistakes and listen to raider feedback. My previous raidleader, was none of those things unfortunately. And even tho i would have liked to stay and watch them grow as a leader, treating me as an enemy when all im trying to do is to convey feedback is just too much for me.


Well family holidays like Cristmas make it hard to play, but the rest of the time im almost allways free, sometimes the semester fucks me with exams but usually i can still manage my time


Yea! im more than fluent in english portuguese and russian, so if you also need a man to RASH B or CYKA BLAT i am the man for the job

Computer / Connection:

Good rig with 6600k and a gtx 1070, high FPS with about 50 ping, disconnects and lag spikes a rare, but as with anyone, they sometimes happen.


Wekauras with a bunch of Antorus and other boss information, a boss time to die weakaura to manage cooldown usage, and class weakauras to keep track of resources and debuffs. Elvui for the UI overhaul. For specifically raids i use DMB, Exorsus raid tools and angry assignments.  Heres most of my UI, some adons arent shown since they only load in raid fights but thats mostly it. The keybinds are all hidden but the main 6 you see in the center are 123, with Shft+123 and the small upper ones are Ctrl 123. The rest of the keybinds are scatterd around the Ui, beying all variations of Q E R T F C V B with Shift and Ctrl (2 side buttons on mouse, one is ctrl, one is shift)

Other Games:

Overwatch, Rust, League, CSGO, Path of Exile, Diablo, Dauntless are the main multiplayer ones, and still run around in Witcher 3 and some others  ^^

Why Iron Edge?

More than loot or boss kills, im looking for a good atmosphere where i can joke around, enjoy myself, and have fun, and also to push myself, my class and my teamwork with like minded people, and to hear everyone scream when the boss dies too, thats the best part isnt it?

Your Raiding times are also super convinent for me, and i also prefer not to dedicate more than 2 days of my week to raiding, due to mainly studies

What can I offer Iron Edge?

I like to think that even if im not the highest DPS, im atleast reliable. If a job needs doing, il be one of the first to say "il do it". Im not afraid to living up to my mistakes, and i am allways on the lookout for any feedback i can get. I can also provide comic relief on demand, altough that feature is still being actively developed..

Where did I hear about Iron Edge?

I sutmbled upon you after i saw you were recruiting on WoWProgress, and after doing some digging, i found out that Trey, an awesome DH i raided NH with, is now in your guild, and its allways good to be around people you know, so i decided to give it a shot!

Last Words?

Ive name changed twice, Currently Eph, i was called Siame before, and Frostrunner before that, so my logs are a bit split around.

Well, if i was you id be skeptical about my ilvl too, and really nothing i can say makes up for it. But id love to give it a shot!
