Character spec/offspec (Please describe your experience with, and gear level (not gearscore) of your offspec set):
Arms (main) Fury (offspec)
Please explain why you selected these talents and why you believe they are optimal for your raid performance:
First tier talent : Jugernaut There aren't much to explain on this,it offers extra mobility,same as double time
Second tier talent : Enraged Regeneration Defensive cd with a short cd,i prefer it over impending victory cause it can be used without any targets near,for example during wirlwind at garrosh
Third tier talent : Depending on the circumstances,but usually disrupting shout, an extra interrupt can never harm
Fourth tier talent : Either of the 3 depending on the circumstances,with bladestorm used in most occasions and dragon's roar as a pure single target choice.
Fifth tier talent : Vigilance, an extra external cd can never harm
Sixth tier talent : Depending on the circumstances,either bloodbath (on most encounters),or avatar (on encounters were the bleed portion of bloodbath might not get to tick before the target dies,like galakras,immerseus or spoils).Storm bolt is not a valid option for arms since it lacks an off hand attack
Please explain why you selected your glyphs, and why they are beneficial over alternate glyphs:
Unending resolve : it increases rage pool,thus allowing better rage consumption Mortal strike : 10% heal for heavy aoe encounters Death from above : Extra mobility Sweeping strikes : With high gear levels it pretty much cancels out the cost of sweeping strikes
Character professions (and how these benefit your raid performance): Blacksmithing and jewelcrafting are both offering plain stat increases
How do you rate your primary / secondary stats in order of importance? Explain why / how you came to this conclusion:
The main arms stats,after hit and expertise cap,are crit and str.The gemming process changes depending on the gear levels,since it changes the threshold that str overcomes crit in stat weight,however for my current gear levels,and due to thokk's trinket crit is still a superior stat and as a result crit oriented gemming is followed.The only exception are the jc gems,due to their nature.As far as secondary stats are corcerned,it still varies based on gear levels.Haste is superior without the 2pc and it continues to be with 2pc till around 50% haste raid buffed.Mastery becomes superior at that point.Since i reached that threshold,my reforges are set to that direction.
Explain your reforging strategy, and why it benefits your character:
As explained above,after making sure that i got caps,i focus on reforging into crit wherever that is possible,then into haste till the 50% threshold,and mastery after that.
Total /played time: 625 days Total /played time at 90: 72
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):
My raiding experience starts back in vanilla with the guild dynasty in magtheridon,a guild formed out of lineage 2 rerollers.We were a pretty decent guild,clearing mc,bwl,aq.Soon after our first cthun kill however,i got hacked leaving me with an naked shaman.During the time i waited to have my gear restored (customer services was not even close to what it is now) i decided to reroll on my warrior,and start pvping.The process of gear restoring took long enough to allow me to reach grand marshal before getting my gear back,allowing me to continue raiding on my shaman in naxxramas.We continued till 4 horsemen,which came with a period of guild unrest due to tanks leaving,with the encounter being the last we killed in vanilla.
In tbc,i decided to reroll to my warrior,joining exiled,a guild formed on genjuros out of magtheridon and crushridge rerollers,mostly due to the impossible queues the 2 servers had at the time,We cleared kharazan,gl,however our progress was halted during our magtheridon progress and the guild soon fell apart due to inactivity.I joined funatix,another guild in genjuros,with which i cleared magtheridon,ssc,tk and hyjal.However ros progress took a toll on the guild,and soon after our first kill the guild fell apart due to inactivity,Along with the vast majority of the officer team of funatix we joined infernals,a more casual guild.We managed to soon bring it up to our previous progress,continued in clearing bt,and to a 4/6 progress in sunwell,with m'uru proving to be an impossible challenge for the guild before the nerf,After the nerf,we cleared sunwell and started reorganizing for wraith,with me being a raid leader at the time.
I conitnued with infernals in early wrath,however,for reasons that i could not explain,the guild master of infernals decided to double the size of the guild,forming 2 clearing groups with no purpose other than doing a simple clear of naxxramas.As it was obvious,thinning our ranks to much halted our progress,both groups having serious issues in clearing naxxramas at first,and making it impossible to clear sartharion 3d.As a result,i decided to leave the guild and join highborns,another guild in genjuros.With highborns i cleared sartharion 3d,and continued into ulduar,getting everything but 0 lights,togc,with server firsts on both 10man and 25 man anubarak hc insanity kills,By that time i was already officer and raid leader in highborns.We contined in icc,however the drama around our first shadowmourne proved too much,and i decided to step down.I decided to join delicious tears,genjuros,getting my first lk normal kill,and continueing into hc,clearing everything up to sindragosa,which was the last boss left before lk for us.However,due to inactivity,the guild fell apart without achieving a kill,and half of the guild left to join loot ftw.Tired of the drama in the last 2 guild i decided to take a small break,returning to wow 3 months later,joining anima,a softcore guild in wildhammer,where some rl friends were playing.During my time in anima i got both 10 and 25 man icc glory,and a 10man hc lk kill,however the guild was not able to have any serious progress on 25man past sindragosa.
During early cata i remained in anima,however soon after our first normal clear the guild fell apart due to inactivity,and i decided to return to more serious raiding,joining dissension in hellfire.We cleared everything up to chogall hc,with dissension being rank 98 at the time we reached the encounter.The long progress however,and the fact that hellfire was a dead realm forced us to downsize to 10man and then completely disband due to inactivity.I applied and got accepted to kill loot repeat (25man ) ,a guild on sylvanas,and continued the progress from were i had stopped,clearing the tier.With klr we continued through a 7/7 hc in firelands and a 8/8 hc in dragon soul.
During mop,i stayed in kill loot repeat,clearing all tiers (16/16 hc tier 14 and 13/13hc tier 15),having also cleared Soo hc at rank 56 25man,the best the guild had achieved in the 3 years i was with em.However a change in the officer team,created an open feud,between me and the new officer,with him doing everything in his power to insult me and undermine me.Seeing as the vast majority of klr's veterans are considering leaving or have already left due to their personal dislike for the said officer,i decided that i would leave klr too.For any information on that regard,you are free to contact klr gm,megafail.So here i am,applying to you.
In the current raiding tier, how would you approach the different encounters and how would your class benefit progression / the raiding squad:
In this current tier,i decided to go with arms,due to its state in ptr during our testing and early progress days.Arms has high multi target capabilities,being one of the strongest specs in the current tier.Fury still has better pure single target capabilities,however the raging blow buff came during our malkorok hc progress,making pure single target boss progress irrelevant at that point,and i decided to stick with arms for the remaining hc encounters.Warriors in general come with a wide arsenal of raid cds,be it defensive or offensive,and the change in vigilance gave us an external cds too.5.4 also brought a change to our defensive skills,namely enraged regen and shield wall,which along with the cd reduction trinket,improved our survivability considerably.
