Title: Tkae: HavocDemon HunterApplication
Post by: Tkae on August 25, 2021, 11:26:58 AM
Character's Name: Tkae
BTag: Tkae#11579
Character's Level: 60
Class: Demon Hunter
Usual Spec: Havoc
Age: 31
Previous Guild: Blood Legacy
Reason you left previous guild:
I've been with Blood Legacy since mid/end of Legion up until now with small stints in other guilds when the raiding died down in Blood Legacy. I've been to Blizzcon twice with the majority of the guild and made some great friends that I plan on keeping for a long time to come.

That being said, many people have lost interest in the game and are letting subs lapse. Our main tank is letting his sub go in 6 days, a co-gm is letting his sub lapse, and most people are playing Final Fantasy now. The guild overall in WoW is basically all but dead and we usually field about 5-6 players from our guild and have to pug the rest.

Tell us a bit about yourself:
I'm 31 and work in IT. Always have loved video games because of the interactions with other people and the friends you make while you try and reach your goals. Served in the USMC for 4 years during which I was on Barthilas and played with all the AUS folks on WoW. Ping from Japan was pretty garbage still but was fun playing with a whole different set of people in a different culture.}

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
I can't say I am. I'm sure I've grouped with at least a few people in the past in Nightstalkers in some keys but no specific friends.

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
I'm trying to seek out a guild and environment much like what the last 4-5 years of being in Blood Legacy used to feel like. I'd love to clear cutting edge in 5-6 weeks after content release, or even get cutting edge for that matter. What I don't want to do is sacrifice the friendship and culture to do it and not feel like part of a community.

Any alts we can contact you on?
Tkx - Rogue, Ktx - Hunter

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?
Yes, given no work travel

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? I do travel for work for anywhere from 3-5 weeks out of the year on average. During those times I'm doing work at one of my companies 2-3 locations that are remote and I'm usually gone Mon-Fri for that week. I've got one of these coming up the week of 9/13

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific:
 always find this question a bit awkward because it makes sense in the moment while playing but never comes out right when you type it down or try to walk someone through it.

Opener
Pre-Combat: Immolation aura at 1

Pull: Fel Rush > Felblade > Retreat > Eye Beam > Meta to get back in melee > Pot > Hunt > Eye Beam > Fel Rush > Essence Break > spam chaos strike

Priorities:
Blade dance is good on 3+ targets typically but usually always situational and doesn't appear to really have much application in the current raid outside of the couple fights you can cleave down adds. I'll be honest, since this expansion blade dance just isnt really great outside of M+ and sometimes even then I go without pressing it. It feels bad, it's damage is low, and with EB/Momentum it's just really an afterthought and "padding" in raid. I feel that right now what we excel at is Sustained ST damage with passive cleave.

Pooling fury for Essence Break windows for damage is pretty important so that everything flows. I've found that it's generally better to hold your Vengeful Retreat CD for a few seconds so it's fury generation window lines up with your essence break window and you can get more buffed chaos strikes in.

Defensives:
Darkness is good, and netherwalk is great. Blur is a decent personal but not what it used to be.

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
DH has no buttons and is the easiest class in the game.

It's true in a sense that our spellbook is shorter, but that's also a biproduct of only having 2 specs and not 3 or 4 like every other class.

DH is one of the harder classes positionally to get the most out of when you are playing momentum. You're retreat and fel rush are almost always on cds and there's a lot that you have to think about and prioritize with positioning. Yes we are a very mobile class, but with momentum that mobility is used directly for damage. For the most part, every person I've heard say that DH is easy and takes no skill has made that class, tried it, been mediocre, and then went back to their main. This is especially true during this period we're in now where momentum is good.

I do sorta agree that blind fury/demonic DH is pretty simple.


Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
6/10 H SoD :((((((((((((
2/10 M CN
5/12 M Nyalotha
3/8 M Eternal Palace
2/9 M Battle
2/8 M Uldir
5/11 M Antorus

Not at the moment. Just a guy looking for other people to play with and enjoy the time spent on WoW.

Key pushing is a big deal for me and would really like to have more people to push 21+ keys with.
