Please explain in detail your opener

tricks @ tank, prepot (in most cases Old War)
Garrote

Bleed spec:
Mutilate, Rupture, (with Vigor talent: another Mutilate, Evenom)
Vendetta, on use trinket, Racial (if not Belf), Mutilate to 5 CPs (if 4 CPs Kingsbane option)
Vanish, Rupture, Exsanguinate

Poison spec:
Mutilate, Evenom, Mutilate, Rupture
Vendetta, on use trinket, Racial (if not Belf), Mutilate to 5 CPs (if 4 CPs Kingsbane)
Vanish, Rupture, Kingsbane (if not used earlier)

Please explain your rotation, if any

With primary 1 builder I'd replace rotation with a priority system:

Bleed Spec with Elaborate Planning:
100% uptime of Rupture on Maintarget (+ on 1-3 adds on a cleave fight)
100% uptime of Elaborate Planning during Vendetta
Not clipping an empowered Rupture (via Nightstalker)
close to 100% uptime on Garrote
Evenom on 4-5 CPs
In heavy AoE situations, as in M+: Fan of Knives + Evenom with whatever CPs to fish for Poison Bombs with Rupture on 1-2 targets.

(Agonizing) Poison Spec:
100% uptime of Rupture on Maintarget (+ on 1-3 adds on a cleave fight)
maintain 5 stacks of Agon.Poison
close to 100% uptime of Surge of Toxins (+ Evenom) during Vendetta
Evenom on 4-5 CPs

Leaving Vendetta usage out for now, as I first have to do some tests on how the legendary boots (nerfed since Wednesday, 18th Jan) now interact with the stealth nerfed Master Assassin Relics and other CDs (Kingsbane, on-use trinket), as I should probably replace 1 more MA relic for a Gushing Wounds, Toxic Blades or Master Alchemist one, if these undocumented changes stay like this.

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

Bleed built (M+, heavy target switching)
Agility > Crit > Versatility >= Mastery > Haste

Poison Built (Raid, Single target / ST+cleave)
Agility > Mastery > Crit > Versatility > Haste

Set pieces (NH):
head + legs looking to be a must have.
chest + cloak (unless the legendary one can be very usefull)
and then most likely (either) the shoulders and/or the gloves beeing left out.

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:

15) Master Poisoner
For increased Evenom/Bag of Tricks damage + albeit believed higher application chance, epsecially since Elaborate Plannig got nerfed

Elaborate Planning I regulary use playing the Bleed Spec

30) Nightstalker
For increased Rupture damage with Vanish

45) Vigor
Mainly due to Deeper Stratagem + Rupture damage per CP nerf.
Opens up some smoothing in the play as a sideeffect.

75) Thuggee
Alternatives are none in the end.

90) Agonizing Poison
best option for Single Target fights or at least minimum target switching.

Alacrity is an option for M+ due to fast dying mobs and heavy target switching the others provide very little.
Exsanguinate is still a decent option for a bleed spec, when some mobs live at least a bit longer

100) Venom Rush
Best option with the highest energy-refund and therfore DPS
Death from Above has too high cost + cast for not enough DPS
Marked for Death is just the opposite of the Assassins toolkit.

Background information

Raid experience (Current and previous)

Legion: 7/7 M, 3/3hc
WoD: 13/13 M + rest on M
MoP: 14/14 hc25 (now Mythic) + rest on hc
Cata: cleared on heroic, more casual raiding
Wrath: 10/11hc ICC when guild stoped raiding, server 1st Algalon
TBC: cleared, some server 1st, Magtheridon pre-nerf etc.
Vanilla: cleared besides C'T.

Started raiding MC as Human Mage, changed to Horde and from BWL up to Sunwell I mained a Druid (healing, in TBC tanking), switched on Brutallus to Ret-Paladin due to the tight DPS check for Blessing of Might and Seal refreshing.- The so called "Seal Twisting" was a fun unintended gameplay, Rets could actually do DPS with.
Mained the Paladin during Wrath (Ret in 25, Tank in 10 man) untill our GM/RL lost interest in the game mid LK progression after 4 years.
Continued to raid with some of these guys more casualy during Cataclysm on my Paladin, but aswell on my new Rogue.
Started fresh on this server (Draenor) during MOP as Paladin and Rogue, but never found a guild who lasted longer than 1 expansion so far.

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

<Talons>, later named <Illumination> on Argent Dawn
several guilds on Draenor, who all fell appart.
2 lasting at least a whole expansion were:
<The Empire Strikes First> and <Elusivé>

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels

Looking to finally find an established guild with people able to play together and not against each other and here the air is quite thin on Draenor in terms of what I think could suite me and I them.
Was already checking back with your guild since end WOD when Iliar joined you from <Elusivé>, but you were not lookign for a rogue at that time.

Aswell I am not interested in abandon my toons again on a server or spend 300 bucks on transfering them.

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

I might know a few more from WA besides Iliar, but I am pretty bad remebering names. - Aswell please dont judge my mythic EN logs, as they are a nightmare looking solo at DPS, yet easy to understand with the padding-, ninjapulling- and more issues we had there.

Hi Clarx

Hi Clarx,

We have discussed your application and we have unfortunately decided to decline it. Despite the point you made about your logs, we feel that you have not provided enough evidence for us to believe that you would be able to compete with our current raiders.

Thanks again for your interest in joining our guild and good luck with your guild hunt!

Thats quite sad to hear.
I am not sure what you expect by having such an application form tbh, when you primary ask in 3 points to write more or less a whole class-guide.

If stuff like logs and explaining them are more important to you, I'd expect to have that reflected somehow and I would have gone into more detail,
like on Nythendra, where I usually was top DPS, yet we always wiped then because that menat that others got Rot more often than me, beeing overhelmed by Mindcontrols in the end as people spread way too much Infested by not moving away due to losing dps, or
like on Il'goynoth, albeit that fight isnt Rogue-friendy, where peoples primary focus was to whore on Ilchors, while mine always is to kill bosses, with the result that we wipe i.e. because the Horror didnt die, with me doing >20% on it, both tanks together aswell 20% and then long nothing or
like Odyn, when people are not even able to spread out for the Horn mechanic (and yes, I made that mistake the first pull or two aswell) with results liek a DPS warrior taking the very same amount of damage as a tank .. etc.

It doesnt help that my trinkets are/were pretty bad (got the urn just recently) and the other one (Tirathon's Betrayal) doenst line up with Vendetta at all and therefore is a terrible choice, but I have nothing better, nor the normal TOV relic I use.

Maybe you wanted to hear more stuff like, that I was by far the top DPS in Elusive in HFC, although arcane mages were in general miles ahead, yet the 2 we had didnt stand any chance against me.
Or maybe the old GM of TESF was a reason who raided with you for a while - well I left once because of this pubescent child and didnt apply to you when he was with you for that reason - but I am not someone badmouthing others behind they back ... usually.

Regards
