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:

Subtlety

15, Master of Subtlety, currently simming best damage for me, about 4k ahead of weaponmaster. Gloomblade is mostly ment as solo content ability to replace backstab.
30, Subterfuge, No contest here due to the increased time in Shadow dance this talent provides.
45, Deeper Stratagem, flat best for dragon slaying. Argument can be made for Vigor in pvp content.
60, No default choice here, usually go for what fight requires. Soothing darkness for healing steady aoe damage in dance, Elusivness to avoid burst damage in fights. Cheat death to soak mechanics.
75, Prey of the weak, personal preference here as it doesn't matter what I choose for PvE here.
90, Premeditation, Again not much to discuss here, due to the mechanic which allows sub to lower the cooldown of Shadow dance per combo point used this just beats everything else.
100, Master of shadows as default, for none cleavish fights as it provides that extra energy to make the spec flow alot better and sims ahead of other choice. Death from above pulls ahead on 3+ target situations.

Outlaw

15, Quick Draw as defualt choice as I use outlaw mostly on 5mans/cleaves bosses, depending on the type of "cleavish" fight I switch between QD and Ghostly Strike.
30, Grappling hook as default, switching between Acrobatic strikes for encounters that might require melee spread/not as mobility heavy
45, Deeper Stratagem, flat out best dps choice for dragon slaying
60, Elusiveness as default, Cheat Death when soaking a mechanic/very dps heavy encounter where energy is in demand and outgoing dmg isnt bursty aoe.
75, Prey of the weak, personal preference here as it doesn't matter what I choose for PvE here.
90, Alacrity as default, Highest performing talent, but I tend to switch it out in 5man for some aoe burst for Cannonball.
100, Marked for death, flat out best for outlaw, mostly thanks to added viability for rolling

Background information

Raid experience (Current and previous)

Vanilla, upto twins in aq40
TBC, everything upto sunwell
Wotlk, everything on 25hc
Cata, first tier on 25hc, went on to do my mandatory army service after.
Mop, returned after first tier was over, cleared everything on 10hc, Garrosh 10hc as top100 10man guild.
Wod, raided casually, cleared all the hc content, got my peeker wet in some mythics but didn't clear any raids full on mythic during their time. Quit after 6-7 weeks into HFC.
Legion, Have done the occasional HC with some friends/pugs, no mythic experience

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

Vanilla, Verve, some really cool drama (not involving me tho^^) but shit was cash.
TBC, Kalevlased
Wotlk, Kalevlased slowed their pushing down so I joined Rapture
Cata, Rapture had had our GM arrested irl so joined Heretic because the leader made the guild.
Mop, after returning from the army, Kalevlased/Yermaw who asked me to join on my Holy paladin, quit here for about a year after clearing SoO to come back to Kalevlased later on
Wod, Kalevlased
Legion, Kalevlased, due to it being estonian only guild the amount of people that know somone who know someone is quite significant. In the past I've told alot of people off how I feel about their performance and due to the fact that these people only thanks to remaining dogshit and not moving on from the guild when raiding stopped have reached a leading status, I'm out a spot.

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels

The want to raid with likeminded people who perform on a level that isn't complete shitter and doesn't require me to shake my head more than a saltshaker.

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

I am a quick learner and the lack of progression in Legion can be fixed with pretty much a single day on what you have cleared so far. ALSO, hopefully my application wont be used to publish a guide on the rogue specs. ecksDEE

Hi, Erik. Thank you for the application. As it stands our roster is pretty full, so before considering this, i would like to know why you are playing sub as main spec and not assassination. I'm aware the nerfs to outlaw pushed progression rogues to assassination, so really I can't understand your current main spec.

If you and your logs can making a convincing argument, then I would still be concerned about your use of cheap enchants in several slots.

Hey, thanks for the reply. Ill start of saying that I have nothing against assassination and playing it, I really couldn't care less about what spec I'm playing in all honesty.
The reason I'm currently leveling my subtlety weapons is that subtlety just scales better in the long run, on the downside that means that leveling the artifact weapon also takes longer.
The reason for assassination being used right now is because it being probably one of the easiest artifact weapons to level up, from any spec really. Getting the 3 golden traits takes only 24 levels. Once peoples sub weapons catch up and subtlety scaling from mastery takes over (talking in ilvls it is said to be around 870+ from what I've read/understood and 29 AP levels).
If it is needed I don't mind putting in the works to get the 24 levels in assassination really. All in all its just about 250k AP and some relic upgrades. Currently the weapons are 875 vs 894 in sub/881 in outlaw. In addition to that my gear from sub setup really carries over to the single target assassination spec quite perfectly.

As far as the enchants go I have not bothered because I havn't been considering raiding on a schedule up to this point. I have no limitations as far as getting the expensive ones as I am sitting on quite a large sum of gold atm (Being herbalist/Alchemist) . The cheaper ones are just what a friend/party member has been able to do right after getting the item.

Hey Ankula,

Sorry for the delay in your application. We have discussed it and we have come to the conclusion that as we are now, we cannot fit another rogue into our roster. As a result, I am going to decline your application.

However, I must just say that the effort that you have put into this application far exceeds the norm and is quite honestly really impressive, so thank you for the time you have committed and sorry that we cannot find a place for you here - although I am sure you have no trouble finding one elsewhere. Good luck!
