Character's Name: Tacostamp
BTag: Tacostamp#1336
Character's Level: 60
Class: Druid
Usual Spec: Restoration
Age: 34
Previous Guild: Adventure
Reason you left previous guild:
Our GM and RL decided to quit - we are looking for a new home.

Tell us a bit about yourself:
Sassy, sarcastic and kinda awkward, I'm the person in the convo who always puts my foot in my mouth. It always makes for a great time. Maybe.}

Are you friends with anyone in Nightstalkers? If so, who and how do you know them?
I'm friends with an ancient relic of Nightstalkers, Salteen.

Why do you want to become a member of Nightstalkers?
My team of raiders and I are looking for a new home, Salteen recommended your guild and it sounded like a good fit. Many of us really loved raiding with Adventure and it is with a heavy heart we have to leave, hoping to find a similar vibe with Nightstalkers.

Any alts we can contact you on?
None

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? I will be celebrating my birthday June 15-18

Please take a moment to outline your rotation/priority. Be thorough and specific:
For me, I start with placement of my Effloresence. I try to rejuv as many targets as possible and keep them on a constant rotation in an attempt to keep the up time consistent. With the new legendary I then try to get my Swiftmend stacks up, following them up Wild Growth to get my soul of the forest boost on WG. By this time, I should have 2 stacks of swiftmend from my legendary and I endeavor to save the third swiftmend to trigger tree with convoke for big heals. It doesn't always work out that way, but I try. Additionally, by this point with my Vision legendary my hots should be fairly well spread over raid, and I trigger Flourish to increase uptime and give my mana a little time to regen. I'm of the mindset to use CD's as often as possible and will consider using tranq early fight to have it up for late encounter. However, I do use my judgement on this, as tranq is a huge CD and misusing it can be penalizing. Generally, I innervate at start of fight, and mana pot at about 1/4th of my mana spent so I can have it one more time before end of fight.  

What's the one misconception about your class that upsets you the most?
There really is nothing, druids are the best. Flawless. If I had to say anything, it would be PvP related as up until this xpac since Panda land I was hard core into high end rbgs.

Bear form doesn't save you from everything. And cyclone is not the best CC in the game.

Summary of your raid experience (go as far back as you can):
I've played since vanilla, but didn't hit max level in Vanilla till BC was about to come out. I started raiding in SSC as a hunter, and learned the ins and outs of "old school" raiding. DKP, loot council, you name it, I was part of it. I raided every raid all the way up to Warlords where triage healing made me quit the game for 2 years. WOTLK was probably my most successful tier. I was healing lead, I was part of a consistent core of 10, and did ICC HM, killing LK and getting the fancy mount at the time. I was the top resto shaman on my server and my guild was considered one of the more successful ones on the server. I returned as a druid in MOP and pvp'd in the 2300+ bracket all the way up to BFA when I quit again because healing rbgs was aids as a druid. I returned to WoW in Shadowlands kinda towards the end of Nathria and joined Adventure after doing a random but awesome pug group with them. I rose up the ranks to become one of the GMs and was healing lead for our raid groups. Zeph and I got this group through most of Sanctum kills until our GM returned from his first break but a lot of people seem burnt out and our GM quitting was kinda the last nail in the coffin and we called it quits at H Rygelon.

Are you willing to respec or sit out of a raid if a different class is needed? Yes, but I'm not willing to respec permanently - Resto druid is my favorite class to play and I've played all healers but Paladin.  

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

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