Title: Taintedmists: MistweaverMonk
Post by: Taintedmists on January 02, 2018, 09:41:27 PM
Character's Name: Taintedmists
BTag: Taintedhalo#1140
Character's Level: 110
Class: Monk
Usual Spec: Mistweaver
Normal Play Time:
Usually the evenings. On off days or weekends it could be any time.
Age: 23
Previous Guild: Volition
Reason you left previous guild:
Technically I am still in it, but the raid team fell apart and the raiders that were left went to find other guilds to raid with.

Tell us a bit about yourself:
I am a college student studying political science and have been playing this game since late BC, but did not seriously raid until I found Volition in Warlords.  I've always loved making connections in this game and will do whatever I can to help the group progress.  It's why I am a healer, I've always loved supporting my team rather than deal damage.

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
Yes.  Bigblk, and Rustyobra.  They are former guild mates back in Volition and I enjoyed two good years raiding with them.  

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
I want to find a raid team that is both serious about progression, and laid back enough that we can joke around while we do so.  A good family atmosphere that also knows when to be serious.  I asked my former guild mates about you guys and they seem to think that Nightstalkers would be a good fit.

Any alts we can contact you on? Taintedspell, Taintedpanda, Teraho, Taintedlock, Tainteddemon, Tainteddeath

Our raid times are Tues, Thurs, and Sun from 7:00 - 11:00 server. Are you able to make ALL of our raid times, every week?

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? My only issues would be midterm week, and finals week.  other than that i can consistently show up.

WoW Armory Link:

Link to a screenshot of your UI (during a raid, mid-fight preferred):

WarcraftLogs (or other log parse) link for a recent raid:

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific: I use renewing mists on cooldown so that it can keep jumping around to those who are damaged.  At the beginning of the fight I use thunder focus tea to get two renewing mists out there immediately, who I use it on depends on the fight.  Vivify is my primary filler ability.  If someone is taking heavy damage I use thunder focus tea and enveloping mist to put an immediate large HoT on the target as well as a soothing mist to add to it.  During aoe damage I use Essence font, with thunder focus tea if the healing needs to go out quickly, without if I have time and save the thunder focus for a renewing mist or enveloping mist.  Mana tea is used during times of heavy healing when I have to either spam vivify or use Essence font multiple times as Essence font is a huge mana drain.  Finally my large CD revival is used during the times in the fight where a healing CD is required.  It is often used before those times if I have enough time for the cooldown to expire.  

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
I have often come across people that legitimately think monks are useless in raid.  While we definitely are not the highest healing at the moment, we have an advantage in mobility that the other healers lack (minus druid of course).  Joking about monks being bad is fine, just dislike it when people legitimately think that.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
I manly started seriously raiding in Warlords of Draenor during Blackrock Foundry.  I was a beginner raider then, but the guild Volition trained me to be better and I went on to raid mythic later in Legion.  In terms of roles I have only raid healed.  While I do have some experience DPSing when we had too many healers, I am only average dps.  

Are you willing to respecc or sit out of a raid if a different class is needed? Unfortunately I can only heal efficiently.  While I do have some windwalker experience I am not effective.  In terms of sitting for fights, yes i am perfectly willing to sit if the team deems it necessary.

Are you willing to download a few raid specific addons? Yes.  I already have quite a few of them.

Are you able to be in Discord for raids (Mic and the ability to talk is required)? Yes.  We used discord in my previous raid team.

Please list your computer's specs. CPU speed, video card, RAM, Wireless/Wired?, Cable/DSL?, and average in-game latency.

My pc build is everything listed in this link.  I used this list to custom build

Is your computer in good working order? Any current issues with it? Please make this answer detailed and specific.
Yes my pc is in working order 100%.  I perform monthly maintenance to keep it in tip top shape.  I recently had a cpu fan break but that was quickly replaced.  

Are you easily offended by adult language and conversation? No.  It's always good to have a loose atmosphere in conversation,

Is there anything else you think we should know?
I have not raided for a while.  Last I raided was mythic Tomb and that was a month before Antorus released.  I have researched the fights in Antorus but have not actually experienced them.  Other than that I love to joke around and have fun.  I am a slight altaholic as I am currently trying to get all classes to 110 before Battle for Azeroth.  I am willing to do anything necessary to help the group advance.  If that means learning a different role, or even sitting a few fights that's fine.  I am not in this for the gear, I am in this for the fun and adventure.  Thank you for reading my application and I look forward to your reply.  :)
