Raider Application - Paladin (DPS) - Alexxke
« on: December 17, 2018, 09:20:18 am »
Hello, Iron Edge!

I am applying for the main raid.

Character: Alexxke
Class/Spec: Paladin (DPS)
Member Type: Raider

Personal Info:

Hello, my name is Alexander. I'm 27 years old. I work in the family buisness selling bakery and restaurant supplies. Flour, chocolate, smalle equipment, packaging, ....

I allso have a 3 year old daughter who seems to have my personality. Not sure if that is good or bad.


I mainly play as retribution. Usually later during the expansion I try to get more tanking experience, this expansion I haven't really tanked any raids. I'm allso still missing a decent 1h for my protection spec.

I sim my character with new pieces of gear. Currently going for Strenght > Haste/mast > crit > versa.
On some fights I do swap talents around, but currently as retribution that doesn't often happen.

We use a FCFS system. I am currently at the edge of simming a bit higher with Inquisition but will gladly swap back to Crusade. This will make my damage a bit more burst over inquisition but less clunky play.


Usually later in the expansion I try to level 1-2 alts but don't really raid with them. I used them the last expansions for splitraiding.


Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing. I used to have them for the bonus they gave but that's over, I kept blacksmithing during Legion because of the legendary craft wich gave a nice amount of gold.

For jewelcrafting I normally keep some gems of every kind, if a new piece of gear has a gemslot or I sim something diffrent.
It's allso usefull if people in the raid get an upgrade with a socket.

Raiding Experience:

I have raiding experience from Classic.
To keep it somewhat relevant I'll just post the last expansions?

Warlords of Draenor:
During the first tier I cleared everything accept Imperator & Blackhand on Mythic (No cutting edge for me here).

During Hellfire Citadel I cleared cutting edge.

Everything cleared cutting edge.
As soon as the guild killed Argus we went on raidbreak (guild migrated from Shattered Hand to Kazzak at this point).

Previous Guilds:

Since Mists of Pandaria I've been in Victus pretty much.
I'm looking for a new guild because of 2 reasons:
1. The guild raidgroup disbanded. We just had the guildmaster trying to keep things together and it just didn't work out anymore.
2. Victus was raiding 3 days. I was going to wait out untill the current tier was over to try and look for a guild that is raiding  2 days.


Every raidnight, that shouldn't be a problem.

The rest is allso flexible.
During non-raiding nights I'm mostly online from 20:30 or a bit later depending on some household chores.
My work shouldn't be an issue for raiding times.
My girlfriend works nightshifts so when she's working I allso tend to play a bit more. This can go from 6 nights playing per week to 3 nights playing per week.

If I'm not online you can allways send me a message via b-tag since I could be playing other games.


I currently don't have Teamspeak installed but I know how to work with it, we swapped over to Discord with Victus a while ago.

I am vocal when it matters, interrupts, soaking, ....

Computer / Connection:

Building computers is my hobby, so I do have a decent one.

I seldom have FPS issues during raids. My internet connection is stable and ms can vary from 12 to 25.


Bigwigs, weakaura's and Hekili.

Cosmetic: ElvUI

I'm currently not home - but I can add a screenshot of my UI later tonight or send one if that's okay? Via the Discord channel linked in the bottom?

Other Games:

Assassin's creed series.

The Division 2 is something I'm looking forward to.

I do tend to play some Overwatch, but besides Warcraft I try to stay away from online gaming. The Overwatch playerbase turned sour as milk.

Why Iron Edge?

Raidinghours are a perfect fit for me.
You're on Kazzak so I don't have to migrate.
You clear raiding tiers.

What can I offer Iron Edge?

Reliable raider, I try to focus more on the mechanics of raiding over brute force dps.

I don't mind doing jobs like interrupting, soaking, ....

I'm loyal to the guild I'm playing in, I don't mind rough patches with the roster that might occur.

Where did I hear about Iron Edge?

I found the guild on wowprogress.

Last Words?

I'm looking forward to hear something.
If you'd like me to log Teamspeak for a chat / interview just ask.
I'm not afraid to talk on Teamspeak or Discord.

Alexke#2239 if you want to add me on b-tag.

Hi Alexxke,

Apologies no ones got back to you yet.

Do you have any logs our officers can take a peak at, other than that good luck on the application and an officer will be in touch as soon as they can.


You may have invaded my mind and my body...but there's one thing a Saiyin always keeps...his PRIDE!!!

Hey Alexxke,

I was wondering what your feelings are about the current state of retribution paladins?

Take in mind their DPS for single target/aoe/cleave/m+ and what kind of utility or other things the class brings to a raid over other melee dps specs.

Kind regards,

My feelings on the current state of retribution?
Overall I don't like Wake of Ashes being a talent over being baseline. Currently I'm simming for DP to be the best end talent, wich can still change on a fight per fight basis.
I preferred DP when it was seen as an extra combined with crusade (via the legendary ring in Legion). Same with the legendary system vs trait system. They're both RNG but once you got the legendary you needed, you could upgrade.

One of the main problems is our mobility, we can partly solve this with cavalier, but retri does alot better on certain fights where you have more time standing still.

The dps for singletarget is solid. So is 4-5+ target cleave. 2-3 Target cleave is where retri doesn't bring much to the table.

The strongest part is the on-demand burst damage that I can do. Short bursts of damage on adds that need to die fast.
The bubble I have can be used for soaking, since it doesn't skip oneshot mechanics anymore, those often go past immunities now.
