Raider Application - Mage (DPS) - Psycicle (XR)
« on: July 18, 2020, 05:56:40 am »
Hello, Iron Edge!

I am applying for the main raid.

Character: Psycicle
Server: Ragnaros
Armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/Ragnaros/Psycicle
Class/Spec: Mage (DPS)
Member Type: Raider

Personal Info:

Hi! I'm Callum, 23 - living in the North East of England. I currently work as a full time software engineer.

Outside of work and Warcraft, my main hobby is playing and collecting Magic: The Gathering cards. I partake in semi-competitive tournaments with a large group of friends a few times a year

Class/Spec:

The spec I have the most experience / most comfortable with is Frost Mage, however I'm practicing (and starting to prefer!) Fire.

Both specs have full corruption available and sockets in every slot.

For both Fire and Frost - you stack the Mastery stat and corruption. For fire you tend to lean towards haste/verse secondary - whereas frost is a crit/haste secondary.

For frost I use the No Ice Lance rotation ,to get those giga Glacial Spikes.

Fire, you must utilise the Blaster Master azerite trait to keep as much mastery in Combustion and outside - to build a large ignite.

Alts:

Shadow Priest (currently gearing new-ish in 8.3) Not ideal corruptions.

BrM / WW monk - main issue is a lack of sockets!

Professions:

My mage has tailoring/jewelcrafting for being able to forge BIS stat gear with sockets.

Raiding Experience:

The previous mythic guild I was in stopped raiding in Eternal Palace after getting 3/8M. But with that guild I got 7/8M Uldir and Cutting Edge BoD.
After that guild took a break I also did, and came back a month or so into 8.3 and just stuck with some friends doing HC and first 3 mythic

Previous Guilds:

As mentioned above, the Mythic guild I was last in unfortunately stopped raiding. I'm looking to leave my current guild as they have no desire to progress Mythic and I wish to get back into Mythic raiding.

Availability:

I work Mon-Fri and I'm normally home/available after 18:30 server time.


Communication:

I'm a native Eglish speaker. I have teamspeak, able to listen and take feedback - and have a working microphone.

Computer / Connection:

Computer Specs:
CPU: i7 7700K
GPU: 4GB Geforce GTX 1070
Memory: 32GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX 3000MHz
Storage:
256GB Samsung SSD 860 EVO
2TB HDD

Internet: 100Mb Down // 10Mb Up

No issues.

Addons/UI:

UI: https://i.imgur.com/FYI8WnJ.png

I use the following addons:
BigWigs/LittleWigs, Exorsus Raid Tools, Weak Auras, Tell Me When, ElvUI, Plater

Other Games:

Primarily only WoW at the moment really to be honest. I like to play story driven games, my favourite recent one I played was Divinity 2.

Why Iron Edge?

I'm looking for a guild that can provide a community of people that have a similar mindset in wanting to progress and improve - but have fun whilst doing it!

My first impressions of Iron Edge looking at the site is great! You seem like a great group of people.

What can I offer Iron Edge?

I can offer reliability, not only attendance but in execution of mechanics and dps.

As well as this I ensure that I am up to date with my class/specialisations - reading up in the class discord, watching Twitch streamers and analysing others logs.

Where did I hear about Iron Edge?

Wowprogress

Last Words?

Thank you very much for considering my application, I know that having only 3/12M in the current tier isn't exactly appealing. However I hope that my previous experience can aid that.

I look forward to hearing back!

Hi Psycicle,
Im Iron Edge resident mage (and banker)
I guess Moon (our Ranged officer) will also answer you soon enough
but the main thing you need to know is that we basically finished Raiding this expansion
(we are going to have one last Raid this Thursday and then its done til Shadowlands first Raid Tier)

And you need to take it into account that you are joining a guild and switching a Server where your Trail period will start in a couple of Months
(I have done the same at the end of WoD and I'm still here... so it can work but its still something you need to take in advance)


now a couple of small questions
How come your guild managed Cutting Edge on BoD but failed on Uldir?
just seem weird to me

2nd Question
Do you have experience in previous expansions? 
when did you start playing wow?


on the plus side (for me) -

You are a fellow BigWigs user which is Great but take note that (unfortunately) our misinformed officer guild enforce the use of DBM as the guild standard

The fact that you did 3/12M last tier is not important and you do have Cutting Edge experience which is more important to us (the real hardship is surviving the couple of weeks of progress on a last boss)

Hi Mortos!

Thanks for responding to my application :)

In terms of of failing Cutting Edge in Uldir - I joined that guild after they initially got Cutting Edge in Uldir - and some of their raiders were taking a break before the next raid tier. Unfortunately in the 5-6 weeks before BoD dropped we did not manage to get the kill, closest was 3%!

I started playing WoW back in Burning Crusade but played pretty casually, on/off until the end of WoD - where I started raiding. I got AOTC for every tier in Legion and we would clear the first 3 or 4 bosses in mythic as well.

Swapping to DBM isn't an issue, unfortunate but I can handle it :P

Also a bit unfortunate that the guild will stop raiding, will the guild/community of the guild still be active during the downtime to Shadowlands?

Ha okay so you don't have 8/8 Uldir but your previous guild does, this makes more sense.

as for your questions, people will be online that is for sure
almost any hour of the day you can find 15-30 people online
we are one of the largest guilds in Kazzak and have been rather active throughout the expansion

people who love to play WoW will continue to play wow even though all of our Raiding teams are on a break
I know I will probably still log to farm for the 100% Crit Fire Build that is running around lately

but I doubt we will be Raiding
unless people will want to try and farm the N'zoth mount (which I do not see enough of the people who wants it , otherwise we would have probably continue raiding just for that)

Hiyo Psycicle,

Sorry for the late response. Mortos has briefed you on the most important of things it seems, and as long as you are happy to start your trial with us in Shadowlands I would like to offer you a trial with the main raid. If this is of interest, you can poke me or any other officer in-game for an invite  :D
