Alts [OPTIONAL]

I've never seriously raided on any alts but I have all classes at 100 so can be flexible if the situations calls for it.

Please explain in detail your opener

After prepoting I open with with crusader strike into blade of wrath back to another crusader with an arcane torrent mixed in to get a quick 5 holy power, then I cast execution sentence followed by judgement with wings to start my "burst". In the windows I start with another crusader into a templars verdict and then use blade of wrath on cooldown to get another verdict in before the judgment debuff wears off.

Please explain your rotation, if any

The rotation is a very simple form of building but holy power to then use holy spenders. I like how in legion they added the judgement window to the ret play style as it in my personal opinion adds a little more dimensions to the class. Know when to cast judgement to get the most crusaders strikes in is a dynamic which can separate the good players from the bad.

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

Haste as become the number one stat for retribution 7.0. This is because it allows to get holy power much quicker and in turn use our spends more frequently. Mastery still provides a decent amount of damage but with the haste change and Crusaders strike now being on a charge system it has fallen down. Again gems would follow in being haste and enchants take haste where possible.

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:

Ret paladins have a quite clear path when it comes to what talents they need to take for which fight. In the early rows they have either a single target talent, and cleave talent or an aoe talent. This gives us a nice bit of flexibility when it comes to fights. And in the later rows becomes a bit less competitive but still have viable differentiating choices like choosing between more manoeuvrability for dodging tactics or have the cooldown on bubble reset sooner to say if I needed to soak abilities. An example in current fights would be on iskar where you would take divine hammer to turn blade of wrath into aoe, zeal to give crusaders strike cleave and consecration for basic aoe on the air phase. Where as on a fight like Iron reaver you would take execution sentence and the fires of justice to increase single target damage.

Background information

Raid experience (Current and previous)

Wrath: 10/13 ICC Normal.
Cata: BWD 6/6 Normal. BoT 3/4 Normal.
Mists: MV 4/6 Normal. SoO 12/13 Normal.
WoD: 10/10 BRF Heroic. 13/13 HFC Heroic. 2/13 HFC mythic ( and more 3% wipes on Kormrok then I like to admit))

Screenshot of UI in RAID COMBAT (LFR is ok)
Previous guilds and reasons for leaving

I was in spine for the majority of WoD but had to quit soon int mythic HFC due to school commitments. When I came back around pre patch there wasn't a spot for me on the team which is absolutely fine as I should not just take the spot of someone how put in the hard work while I was not playing.

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels

I want to join a hardcore guild in legion to seriously raids endgame content. I want to take raiding in legion super serious now I have the time and commit myself to getting the hardest content down. I enjoy the grind of trying to get a boss down you've been stuck on for weeks as I like to the see the progress in myself and the raid as players and the elation of the first kill at the end.

Write any additional information you feel you need to tell in your apply
