Rotation, talents and glyphs:
Prepot on 1 second open with Rapid Fire, Berserking, with trinket in my case Mirror of Blademaster and then chimaera for trinket procs, follow it up with Stampede and hope for Thrill of the hunt procs and use aimed shots until Chimaera comes of CD Barrage or Power shot on CD

Fights like Iron reaver I would use Powershot for pure single target, but fights with slightly more AoE I would use Barrage as an example Hellfire Assault or Socrethar the Eternal.

Please explain your rotation, if any.
Chimaera shot on CD aimed shot whenever above 50 focus use steady shot to regen focus and hope for Thrill of the Hunt procs for a lot of continuous aimed shots continue this until Chimaera comes off of Cooldown it is a fairly simple rotation the only thing that would be difficult is Focus management but it not a difficult thing to do.

Please explain your current stat priority, this includes gems, enchants & set bonusses you are currently going for

Agility is obvious for a hunter for the increased attack power., I prioritise Critical Strike> Multistrike> Mastery>Haste>Versatility.

I gem +75 crit because Critical Strike I find that it is the best stat and the lack of crit my gear is pretty bad the fact most of it doesn't have crit has a serious effect on my dps.

Please explain your current talents and glyphs, explain why you are using them, when if and why you change your talents for any current encounter:

Tier 1: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Chimaera for the deterence Cooldown
Tier 2: Binding Shot, Is the best AoE no need to change it out unless you do PvP
Tier3: Iron Hawk, for the 10% damage reduction it is handy.
Tier 4: Thrill of the Hunt provides maximum dps with the chance of Aimed shot to be reduced by 20 focus.
Tier 5: Stampede is a no brainer.
Tier 6: Barrage or Powershot: I explained above that I switch out between fights for single target and AoE fights.
Tier 7: Lone Wolf gives the maximum DPS increasing damage from Chimaera, Aimed shot and Kill Shot by 30%

Raid experience (Current and previous):
I have played a hunter for almost 3 years and too be honest for the first year I wasn’t very good at it. Until I really wanted to get some progress in the raids I decided I needed to up game. So I spent a lot of time on the training dummies outside of the shrine (probably about 30 odd hours) just trying to perfect my rotation after I had that down to a fine art it was at this point I finally got into my first raiding guild with progress of 5/12 NM in ToT and eventually managed to some gear to get start trying the heroics I eventually cleared the full ToT on normal then we started our progress on Jin'rokh the Breaker this took us about 15 wipes before we killed it then we moved on to Horridon where we struggled so we moved on to do Ji-Kun on HC which we managed to cheese with the weird tactic that existed during progress of ToT after that we managed to clear the rest through to Iron Qon where we wiped just under a 100 times on this boss for the HC tactics where one of his Quilens would most of my guildees struggled with the windstorm for me as a hunter it was no issue because of disengage and posthate paired with the nitro boots from Engineering I felt that this was a bit of a cheesy mechanic but if it meant I didn’t die then it was a plus for me.

From here I realised I was a better player than some of the people I was raiding with so I decided to change realm EU-Draenor this time where I was excepted into Ad Eylsium to raid SoO with the upcoming raid inbound I was informed that the current spec that was best to play was Beast Mastery not survival. I made the switch this allowed me to punch through into a very good guild which allowed me to get my way to 12/13 HC in SoO with only one boss left. At this point in time I had a falling out with one of the officers due to not doing tactics correctly which was not a big deal but made me question why I was here if they don’t want to listen to my advice. I applied to one of the streamers I watched guilds <SPARKS> Kazzak I got my Garrosh Kill which then led me to continue to farm the content until I reached a point where the only drops from bosses I needed were warforged.
With 583 ilvl I had secured a solid spot in the raid team for WoD unfortunately I had a horrible experience with levelling this really put me of the game so once I hit level 100 I had told my gm and officers that I was going to take a break and would let them know when I would return, eventually when I got back into the game 3 or 4 months ago to this date 12/6/16 I had found out after clearing BRF the guild had dispanded. My chance at getting back into a good guild was near zero with nothing from highmaul and brf I struggled to find a guild that would take me, I managed to pug a few heroics here and there but nothing really came to until I got into <Personal Responsibility> back on EU-Draenor, I have been clearing first 6 with them for now so I can get some gear and eventually help with their Mannoroth progression but I feel that my time in <Personal Responsibility> has come to a swift end as I am looking for a better guild who raid on a more serious level of legion competing for top 100 spots in the world and maybe server firsts for all the upcoming raids.

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels
I feel that going into legion you will be a top contender for server first and that is what I would love to achieve.

Write any additional information you feel you need to tell in your apply
if you need to ask any questions feel free to ask here and ingame.



















Applicant
Additional Information I have Exorsus, Weak Auras and ora 3 for raiding also.
Thank you for the application. I must say, there are a few issues here that would concern me regarding reliability and team-player. How likely are you to quit should you not enjoy levelling in legion or disagree with an officer in weeping angels. And how would you offer up advice in raids on tactics, what form and discussion would that involve.

Otherwise I will have our guild hunters assess your logs and will get back to you

For example during ToT Ji-Kun HC there was a way to cheese the fight and I informed my guild and a few guilds on Stormrage which allowed us and them to get the kill. I always stay up to date with tactics via MMO Champion or Icy Veins,

Even if I have a bad levelling experience this time round i'm dedicated to do the progression raids because I have yet to experience first tier raids during progression.

I would whisper RL/Officer suggesting a different tactic if I knew of one and unless thr RL agrees with myself I will just keep quiet with it and do it the way we have been told.
Hi, Luxton. Can I ask is there any reason for not bringing your ally main hunter over to our guild (as opposed to this toon, which will take some time to become relevant in the content of our existing roster's dps).

Zag
Applicant
If you are seeing the alliance toon it existed to run alt raids my main guild was SPARKS on kazzak but they disbanded after BRF. So that is just a different character. My main character is the one that I have applied with.
ah okay.

After discussion with my fellow officers we will have to decline the app as we feel this toon would not be able to compete with our existing roster.

Thanks for your interest and best of luck in your search
