Title: Onex: Affliction/DestructionWarlockApplication
Post by: Vamp on May 12, 2021, 10:37:41 PM
Character's Name: Onex
BTag: Vampyral#1837
Character's Level: 60
Class: Warlock
Usual Spec: Affliction/Destruction
Age: 26
Previous Guild: Roadhouse
Reason you left previous guild:
All of my friends quit the game. Roadhouse ded

Tell us a bit about yourself:
At the end of Cataclysm I server transferred off of Shattered Hand where I was leading my own guild for heroic progression through Firelands. I joined Shattered Oath at the end of Dragon Soul and raided heroic with them until half way through Throne of Thunder. I raided with Drow for a few months and after killing Heroic Lei Shen I quit the game for a bit. When I came back I was mostly a casual/ahead of the curve player because I was busy being in the Navy.

I raided with you guys in Classic, of course. It me. Vamp.}

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
Ian, Rejuv, Mackers, Boyaa, Falafell, and a bunch of other people I've raided with in the past.

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
I don't want to miss a raid tier and I want to raid with people I know/like/enjoy raiding with. That's you guys. I'm also ready to come back to cutting edge.

Any alts we can contact you on?
Chivamp, Onex, Vampyral-tichondrius

Our raid times are Wed, Thurs, and Mon from 8PM - 11PM server time (CST). Are you able to make ALL of our raid times, every week?
As far as I am aware I can make all of these times.

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? I'll have regular doctors appointments soon but I have been scheduling them for the mornings (Hawaii time). Also I'm going to be gone May 14th - May 23rd

WoW Armory Link:

Logs:      These are horrible, my item level is/was low and this was a pug

Link to a screenshot of your UI (during a raid, mid-fight preferred):   I don't have any screenshots in raid combat, my raid frames sit below my soul shards

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific:
-Never cap soul shards
-Maintain dots
-Maintain Shadow Embrace
-Cast Haunt on cooldown
-Save Phantom Singularity for when Soul Rot is up, you should be pooling soul shards for when this happens.
-About 45 seconds before Darkglare is off cooldown start pooling shards, if you are going to get a full use of Dark Soul during Darkglare then hold Dark Soul until Darkglare is off cooldown.
-Spam the shit out of Malefic Rapture with as many dots up as you can
-Fill with drain soul

Little nuances exist like: snipe dying targets with drain soul, maintain Agony on up to 8 targets for soul shard generation but don't worry about wasting globals on other things (in Afflictions current state)

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
I have a few things about my three favorite classes but in regards to Warlock it upsets me that people say the class is easy or braindead but when they play it they can't manage their cooldowns or dots (if you're into that thing) correctly. An example being using Phantom Singularity or Soul Rot immediately when they come off of cooldown rather than pooling shards and waiting for both of them to be off cooldown at the same time.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
Wrath - 6/12 10Man Norm ICC and whatever else I managed to pug when I was 13
Cata - Cleared normal first tier and 1/12 Heroic, 7/7 Heroic Firelands, 7/8 Heroic Dragon Soul
MoP - 14/16 Heroic tier one, 12/12 heroic Throne of Thunder, I dont remember what we killed but raided Heroic SoO with Rejuv in Shattered Oath. Cleared the rest in a pug during the WoD Prepatch
WoD - It gets kind of fuzzy here, I think 5/7 Mythic Highmaul, quit during heroic blackhand, came back and cleared Hellfire Citadel on Heroic for ahead of the curve.

In legion I pretty much only pugged here and there until Antorus where my friends and I formed a group in Roadhouse.

I've been clearing ahead of the curve and calling it good since then. I cleared Mythic Dazar'alor for the Jaina mount but that was last patch when you zerged the raid.

Are you willing to respec or sit out of a raid if a different class is needed? Yes and I can play Destruction, Mistweaver, Disc, Holy Priest, and Shadow all with decent levels of competence. I have no idea how to play Demonology. I'll play whatever is needed among those specs. Priest healing and Warlock DPS are my specialties as I've been doing them for the last 13 years.

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

Are you able to be in Discord (WITH a working mic) during raids? Yeah but I hate push to talk so I'll probably barely say anything unless I need to say it during an encounter

Please list your computer's specs. CPU speed, video card, RAM, Wireless/Wired?, Cable/DSL?, and average in-game latency.
It's a little on the older side but

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz   4.00 GHz
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTC 980 Ti (quite the relic, I know)

Wired latency ranges from 60-110. Usually sits around 65.

Is there anything else you think we should know?
I'm mostly applying to come raid in 9.1

Nathria has left a bad taste in my mouth. I appreciated the difficulty but my friends did not. They didn't try, burnt out, and I was miserable in both Nathria and by the end of our time in Classic I just needed a break from raiding.

If you need to trial me through Nathria farm or something I'm cool with that but I'd really prefer to just wait for 9.1 before I participate in progression.

When I brought it up in BfA because I realized I was supposed to get it Blizz said they can't just give me the mount because the game periodically does checks on your account to see if you've met the criteria to own things like mounts and stuff. I have AoTC, but I don't have the completion of the quest attached to my account. The item has been removed so they couldn't give me the item to do the quest. No moose for me.
