Title: Sanstra: BloodDeath Knight
Post by: Sanstra on May 31, 2018, 06:34:09 PM
Character's Name: Sanstra
BTag: Sanstra#1620
Character's Level: 110
Class: Death Knight
Usual Spec: Blood
Normal Play Time:
15-20 hr/week
Age: 19
Previous Guild: Volition
Reason you left previous guild:
Guild fell apart due to inactive GM. Me and Rusty kept the guild together for a while but eventually we were unable to raid so i decided to take a break from WoW for a tier.

Tell us a bit about yourself:
I pride myself on being an exceptional tank and great strategic asset to a guild. I understand how to succeed in all aspects of the tank roll from ensuring survivability to maximizing damage output to ensuring that the jobs of DPS are simplified to ensure the best chance for meaningful progression. I also served as an officer in Volition, my previous raiding guild, and was able to provide meaningful strategies in our mythic raids. Outside of raids I am a generally laid back person and enjoy hanging out in discord, chatting and cracking jokes. In addition, I am willing to DPS if needed, but I can perform best in a tanking roll.

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
Quite a few of my old guild members joined you guys when Volition fell apart. Rusty is the person I know best as we were co-tanks and co-officers for the first 3 raids of Legion. We perform extremely well together as a team.

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
I value progression and, from what I have heard from past guild mates, Nightstalkers seems that they can provide that. In addition, I enjoy people who are active, funny, and social outside of raids and I hope that I can make some genuinely good friends within the guild.

Any alts we can contact you on? Sjanstra, Sanstraa, Alarrine, Gazzaj, Klalnum

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?
Yes, you can expect 99.9% attendance from me.

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? Nope

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

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific: Firstly it is important to keep blood plague up on all targets at all times by periodically casting blood boil. Use Blooddrinker on cooldown. To generate runic power, use Morrowend if bone shield stacks are at 5 or lower, use heart strike otherwise. Use Death and decay on cooldown unless you need to cast something else, but prioritize it if you have a proc. When you reach enough runic power, spend it on death strike unless you feel you will need to save it to mitigate a big attack soon. All other abilities are situational, use defensive cooldowns to mitigate heavy boss attacks. Interrupt, taunt, stun and grip when necessary. Use DRW on pull and lined up with heavily damaging abilities/trinkets.

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
The one thing that bothers me the most is when people say that a tank's DPS doesn't matter. When you are in mythic progression, every little bit helps. If there is a wipe at 0.1% and the tank is underperforming, it is their fault. If the raid barely misses a dps check, and the tank is underperforming, it is their fault. Mythic raiding is about performing to the highest caliber, and when you are a tank that means maximizing output while maintaining survivability.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
SoO: 4/14 Heroic (Mythic now)
Long break
HFC: 5/13 Mythic
EN: 3/7 Mythic (Embarrassing I know)
ToV: 3/3 Mythic
Nighthold: 8/10 Mythic
ToS: 5/9 Mythic (Guild fell apart)

Are you willing to respecc or sit out of a raid if a different class is needed? Both, whatever is best for the guild. Also willing to hop on other tank specs if I have them leveled.

Are you willing to download a few raid specific addons? Yes

Are you able to be in Discord for raids (Mic and the ability to talk is required)? Yes

Please list your computer's specs. CPU speed, video card, RAM, Wireless/Wired?, Cable/DSL?, and average in-game latency.
Here's my build, TLDR: Its really good:

Unfortunately the apartment I moved into for my summer internship doesn't have an ethernet port so im on wifi. Wifi is really good here though so it shouldn't be an issue. I will be back to wired internet in 2 months. MS is about 25 for the summer, will be back to about 10 when I get back home.

Is your computer in good working order? Any current issues with it? Please make this answer detailed and specific.
It works well, no issues, if anything breaks I have loads of spare parts from old PCs so I should be up and running again immediately.

Are you easily offended by adult language and conversation? No

Is there anything else you think we should know?
I understand from Rusty that your current tanks are quitting soon. I don't expect to be brought in immediately, but I will be available whenever you need me. I can also DPS in the meantime but my OS isn't fully geared, nor does it have a lot of AP. I really hope I get the opportunity to join you guys, from what I've heard y'all seem like a good bunch. Feel free to reach out to me outside of standard business hours if you have any questions for me. Discord is Sanstra#4736.
