Title: Kettlebelly: BrewmasterMonk
Post by: Kettlebelly on December 29, 2018, 08:58:28 PM
Character's Name: Kettlebelly
BTag: H4ck3r#11760
Character's Level: 120
Class: Monk
Usual Spec: Brewmaster
Normal Play Time:
Varius times throughout the day.  I will usually log on during the day to do emissary, hang out for a few see what is going on.  Log on for invasions or to do a M+ or what not.  Raids.  Sometimes when I am just bored and just playing around.  Short answer various throughout the day.  
Age: 35
Previous Guild: Iron Legacy
Reason you left previous guild:
Haven't left yet but I don't feel a lot of people are making an effort.   There is a great majority of people who are vocal about not watching fights ahead of time.  Not learning what is good for their class.  I know there is better out there and i am trying to find it.  

Tell us a bit about yourself:
I was in the military for 10 years,   My sense of humor can be dark at times but I am a fun person to be around.  I am 35 and love dad jokes.  I am competitive but love working as a team.  I do play a lot of other games.  I recently got Red dead redemption 2 for Christmas.  So I have been spending some time playing that.  

I am studying to get my Sec+ certification, which I am planning to take that mid January.  

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
No

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
Well your guild is further progressed than mine and I feel I would have a better chance of getting Cutting edge with your guild than mine.  

Any alts we can contact you on? You have my btag

Our raid times are Tues, Thurs, and Sun from 8:00PM - 12:00AM server. Are you able to make ALL of our raid times, every week?
Yes

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? None

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific: Maintain Ironskin brew
Maintain Rushing Jade Wind.  

Keg smash before Breath of fire
Blackout Strike
Tiger palm


unfortunately, there isn't much to the rotation of brewmaster.  I believe most of the nuance of brewmaster comes from purifying brew and brew management.

 

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
The only thing i can think of is people not understanding how stagger works.  I don't think I can do a better job of explaining it than Peakofserenity did.  

Think of damage like a stream of water. Sometimes it flows faster, and sometimes slower. Stagger is like a bucket, but itís a really leaky bucket and there are holes all over the sides, so 10% of whatís in the bucket leaks out every second. One thing the bucket does naturally is to help make the flow of water relatively constant, so if thereís a big flood of damage (a big tank ability) followed by some little stuff (melee hits, raid damage) for a while, you catch part of the flood in the bucket and then every second for ten seconds afterward, 10% of the damage that went into the bucket leaks out, plus some extra from the little stuff. Delaying damage by putting it into the bucket can help protect you from being one-shot and gives healers more time to react and heal you.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
BC- Kara, gruul, SSC, TK,
Wotlk - ALL fights all difficulties, world 82nd Heroic Lich king.
Cata- All fights heroic.  
Mop - MSV heroic,  HOF heroic, TOES heroic,  Quit playing here
WOD- returned Hellfire Citadel Cutting Edge
Legion - Emerald nightmare - CE
TOV - Normal and heroic
Nighthold - Normal and heroic some bosses mythic
TOS - 6/9 mythic
Ant - 10/11 mythic

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

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.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980
Wired Connection to router.
Currently in boralus I am getting 30 FPS and 36 MS.


Is your computer in good working order? Any current issues with it? Please make this answer detailed and specific.
The only issue i have with my computer currently is that my chair is crap.  I need a new one.  It works for the time being but my god after gaming all day long my bum can really really hurt.  

Are you easily offended by adult language and conversation? LOL NO There really isnt anything that can offend me.  People have tried and people have failed.  

Is there anything else you think we should know?
I do my research and try to stay ahead of the changes.  I always gear multiple tanks just in case one of them gets nerfed  into oblivion.  I am vocal in raids in as much as a tank needs to be.
