Character's Name: DarthFoo
BTag: DarthTelles#1223
Character's Level: 60
Class: Monk
Usual Spec: Mistweaver/Fistweaver
Age: 54
Previous Guild: Ballaz
Reason you left previous guild:
Mythic Raid team died and I'm looking to continue my goal to get Cutting Edge Raider for this Expansion.  After filling in on a few Mythic raids with Night Stalkers, I got an invite to join the raid team.

Tell us a bit about yourself:
I started playing WOW a few months after the launch of WOW. I've been playing ever since.  I enjoy raiding the most in the game.  I've been able to raid every raid that has been put out in the game.  Lately I've been doing a lot of Mythic + runs.

Outside of WOW I'm an Engineer for the US. Navy and an Avid Sailboat racer.}

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
Tekk.  I met her farming for the Time Lost Proto Drake during COVID

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
You guys run a fun and concentrated raid focused on taking down bosses, but having a good time at it which of course is the main focus of the game.  I feel like Night Stalkers is a good fit for me.

Any alts we can contact you on?
DarthTelles - Zul'jin

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

Do you forsee any issues in the near future with attendance? Vacation? Moving? Etc? No

WoW Armory Link: Can't find the armory link...but it is DarthFoo -  Zul'jin

Logs: Use your logs from 11/4/2021.

Link to a screenshot of your UI (during a raid, mid-fight preferred): Posted on Healer Chat on Discord

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific:
Fistweaving- Always be hitting something to heal. 
I run Ancient Teachings of the Monastery Legendary. which heals an ally within 20 yards 250% of the amount of damage that is done.  So by stacking in the melee and dpsing along side them I heal them.  This provides a lot of raid wide healing. Definitely a shift from most healing classes I've run in the past.

Essensce Font initiates the legendary and is used on cooldown.
 
Refreshing Jade Wind heals up to 6 allies within 10 yards of me and actually provides a majority of my raid healing.  Again being in Melee is the key to this working.  This is also is used on cooldown and is always up

Renewing mist is a HOT that I always keep up on the tanks.  it jumps to the the lowest health person so I tend to always have it on the tanks and keep it on cooldown also.

Life Cocoon and Revival are my major cooldowns used for high damage phases of the fight.

I've recently started using Chi Burst as a minor cooldown.  When fired thru the raid and hits a majority of the people it provides a lot of healing.

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
Not really sure, Healing is very FUN.  Dps is solid and tanks are not that bad.  Perhaps the odd rotation throws people off on monk as repeating an ability during dps will hurt your output.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
As mentioned before, I've raided every raid and expansion that has been put out.  My first raid was Onyxia on my Warlock.  Fights have definitely changed over the years, the thrill of down a hard boss for the first time is still as exhilarating as that first Onyxia Kill!!

Are you willing to respec or sit out of a raid if a different class is needed? Yes.  I do that now and shift between healing and DPS as needed.

Are you willing to download a few raid specific addons? Yes. Most raids have specfic addons/WA's that are required

Are you able to be in Discord (WITH a working mic) during raids? yes

Please list your computer's specs. CPU speed, video card, RAM, Wireless/Wired?, Cable/DSL?, and average in-game latency.
My computer runs around 60 FPS and MS of 32 even with a large number of addons/WA and UI

Is there anything else you think we should know?
I'm Looking forward to continue raiding with NS and getting Cutting Edge with you!
