Your Character & Stats
Character name (include armory link): Wokie, http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/kazzak/Wokie/advanced
Character class: Paladin
Character spec/offspec (Please describe your experience with, and gear level (not gearscore) of your offspec set): Prot/Retribution at this point, have 574 ilvl as Retribution and been playing it while we have geared a third tank in our guild.
Please explain why you selected these talents and why you believe they are optimal for your raid performance: I run with what I consider is a good spec for Protection Paladins at this point and as well good for Retribution Paladins there are some optional talents that could be useful in some encounters and then I swap to that talent for e.g. Clemency for 2 Hand of Protection or Hand of Purity to help the healers abit with some DoT on a raid member (read Dark Shamans).
Please explain why you selected your glyphs, and why they are beneficial over alternate glyphs: The same thing goes with my glyphs I run with glyphs that I consider is good for most of the fights and I've selected those becuase it increases my damage and helps me survive. for some fights like Siegecrafter I swap my Divine Protection to Word of Glory to get 9% extra dmg on Shredders for 6 sec together with my 4-set bonus. As Retri I use Mass Exorcism on AoE fights Galakras/Garrosh and otherwise Divine Protection for some extra survivability.
Character professions (and how these benefit your raid performance): I currently have JC/BS on my Paladin just to get as much haste as possible and becuase BS is very nice if you some time must change the stats prio.
How do you rate your primary / secondary stats in order of importance? Explain why / how you came to this conclusion: Hit/Expertise > Haste > Mastery > Crit. I want 21250 Haste as a Paladin to cap Crusader Strike to 3 sec CD and use it every third ability to build up Holy Powers which I use on Shield of the Righteous.
Explain your reforging strategy, and why it benefits your character: Get Hit and Expertise cap then all out on Haste + eventually Mastery.
Total /played time: 206 days (Paladin), 209 days (Warlock)
Total /played time at 90: 55 days (Paladin), 70 days (Warlock)
Please provide detailed information on your raiding history throughout previous expansions, and your experience level of current raiding hard modes (please specify 10 or 25 man experience): The latest guild I played in was called BTY on Kazzak and was a 10-man guild with mostly friends we got to 13/14 HC before the officers decided to disband the guild since they didn’t have the belief that we could recruit good enough players for the progress we aimed for. Before that I joined all of these players up in another guild on Kazzak called No Remorse (25-man) then I played on my Warlock called Devilus. We cleared ToT 25HC and then started BTY instead since we didn’t think that No Remorse had the same ambition as us. And before I even came to Kazzak I was a Ranged Officer in one of the best Swedish speaking guilds called Postal on Aszune. I joined Postal when Firelands was released and got promoted to officer in Dragon Soul and stayed there until the “middle” of ToT when Postal had gone from being a successful 25-man guild to being a 10-man guild with those players who wanted to continue playing more or less. Before Postal I played in Aphorism and Shattered on Sunstrider 25-man guilds as well during WotLK and the start of Cataclysm, before Shattered I was on Sylvanas and played in Invisible Wall, lddqd % Operation Sasquatch.
In the current raiding tier, how would you approach the different encounters and how would your class benefit progression / the raiding squad: I’m applying with both of my chars even though I don’t have the same ilvl on them I think I can prove myself once I get gear on my warlock again. Retribution Paladins are quite nice with double Hand of Protections on fights like Thok were it can either help a healer to push more healing or a DPS to do more damage. Warlocks is also an asset in my eyes with good survivability in this expansion and nice with portals and healthstones.
