Title: Magaria: FrostMage
Post by: Magaria on June 08, 2018, 01:14:56 AM
Character's Name: Magaria
BTag: BrainMears#2176
Character's Level: 110
Class: Mage
Usual Spec: Frost
Normal Play Time:
Anywhere from 12pm - 4am (Normally about 8hr+ a day on days that I'm not busy)
Age: 23
Previous Guild: Bloodfang Coven
Reason you left previous guild:
The main reason I left Bloodfang Coven wasn't due to any malice or anything like that. The guild was basically just me online most days and all the higher officers had been inactive for months, after I came back from my break of playing I decided that I wanted a guild that was more active and dedicated.

Tl;dr: I mainly left due to the fact that I wanted a guild that was seriously into raiding and was much more active with their members. I'm here to make friends as well as level up my character, after all!

Tell us a bit about yourself:
I'm a pretty easy going dude, and I get along with most people that I talk to. Even people who clash with my personality. I have no problems talking with or getting along with them. I enjoy playing the game to have fun as well as grinding to level up my character. I personally think the game is more fun when you're playing with other people, however. Most people I'm friends with don't play the game as actively as I do, which is basically why I am looking to find a guild that is dedicated to being active as well as making friendships, but I guess I am kinda rambling now.. so I'll try and stick to the topic.

Uhm, about me.. my actual name is Brian, and I live in NY. I've been playing video games since a very young age and have always loved grinding games. I've played games ranging from Call of Duty, Runescape, League of Legends, Destiny, and obviously WoW. I have a strong sense of teamwork instilled in me as well as a strong ability to adapt to situations, if I mess something up I don't make the same mistake twice. I like to hang out and talk to people, but I also like time to myself to just chill out and grind sometimes. Um.. I can't really think of anything else to say, but if you'd like to know more about me, just ask! :)

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
Not yet! :)

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
The main thing that turned me to apply to your group was how you guys started out as just a group of friends that liked to level up and talk to each other. You always hear about guilds that are tight-knit, but they're so hard to find, and that's basically what I've been looking for (as I'm sure I probably have overstated this point from my previous paragraphs lol). I want to become a member so that I am able to make those connections and friendships with my guild mates, so that they can count on me if they need anything and I can expect the same in return.

I also enjoy the amount of dedication you have to reinforce your guidelines for raiding, to me that says that you guys have your stuff together and know what you're doing.

All of those aspects are why I would like to become a member of this guild.

Any alts we can contact you on? I have about 12, but I'm mostly on Magaria, Elrogh, and Warlare. If I'm not on those I'm probably leveling up my hunter Accara.

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?
Yep!

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? Not that I know of.

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific: My basic main rotation is as follows:

Buffs (Icy Veins/Time Warp)
Ebonchill (or Glacial Spike if it's procced into Ebonchill with Ice Lances inbetween)
Instant Flurry cast followed by a Ice Lance
Then rotate between Frost Bolt/Buffed Ice Lances/Instant Flurry until Ebonchill is off CD or Glacial Spike is procced again
Rebuff when available
Repeat

I throw in my Frozen Orb and Blizzard when I need to move out of the way and unable to channel casts or whenever there are extra trash mobs in the mix of the fight.

Ice barrier whenever it's off CD and popped, and invis/ice block/healthstone if near death.


What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
I don't really know any misconceptions about my class, as I've never really looked into it that much. I don't normally concern myself with negative opinions unless they're constructive.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
I am fairly new to current content raiding, as I have just recently gotten the levels to start doing them. I have completed some of the current patches raids and know the mechanics fairly well, and those that I don't I've watched videos on.

I have completed:

The Emerald Nightmare (LFR)
The Nighthold (Up to Heroic)
Tomb of Sargeras (Up to Normal)
Antorus: Aggramar and Argus (LFR)

I know that I'm not very experienced but I do learn very quickly, as I stated before. I make sure to study the raid mechanics prior to attempting any fight multiple times and if I mess up I hardly ever make the same mistake twice.

I have also been raiding legacy content for transmogs for awhile, though I doubt that you care much about mog runs lol

Are you willing to respecc or sit out of a raid if a different class is needed? Of course.

Are you willing to download a few raid specific addons? Sure.

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

Please list your computer's specs. CPU speed, video card, RAM, Wireless/Wired?, Cable/DSL?, and average in-game latency.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
RAM: 16GB DDR4 3200MHz
Motherboard: ASRock AB350M Pro4
Storage: 250GB SSD + 2TB HDD
Keyboard: Corsair Strafe Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Cherry MX Red Switches
Mouse: Redragon M901 PERDITION 16400 DPI High-Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse
Headset: Corsair Gaming VOID PRO Surround Premium Gaming Headset
Monitor: Acer G7 Series G247HYL Black 23.8" IPS 4ms (GTG) Black Widescreen LED/LCD Monitor (1080p)

I play on wired connection with about 42ms latency.

Is your computer in good working order? Any current issues with it? Please make this answer detailed and specific.
I just built this gaming PC approximately two months ago, everything works like a charm and I couldn't be happier with it! I run the game at a steady 90-100fps most times and (knock on wood) I shouldn't have any problems with the parts for at least a few years.

Are you easily offended by adult language and conversation? Nope

Is there anything else you think we should know?
I understand that I am not that experienced with current content raids, but I am very committed and any and all advice is taken into consideration whenever I am approached with such. I plan to do a ton of raiding in the new expansion in a few months and I would love to get in on the ground floor with you guys and build friendships and learn from you. I hope that I hear from you soon and thank you for taking the time to read through my application :)
