Please explain in detail your opener

Depends on the encounter and my task mostly, but here is one for Singletarget:

Opening with Garrote -> Envenom (to build up Agonizing Poison stacks quickly) -> Mutilate -> Mutilate (if I have enough Energy) -> Vendetta -> Mutilate (if <5 CP) -> Vanish -> Rupture -> Kingsbane -> Mutilate -> Envenom.

Please explain your rotation, if any

Singletarget (Legendary Boots/Ring): I am trying to keep the Envenom buff up 100% while Kingsbane. Keep Garrotte Rupture with 4+ CP up and Surge of Toxins with 4+ CP Envenoms and trying to line up Vendetta with Kingsbane + full Surge of Toxins uptime.

Cleave (Legendary Boots/Ring): Same as Singletarget, but before going into Kingsbane adding Rupture/Poison to a 2nd target. Focus main target and keep up Rupture/Poison on second target for more Energy income (benefits dmg on main target).

AoE (bursting: Legendary Boots/Cloak; sustained - IF that will be ever a rogue's job, like in M+ -: Legendary Cloak/Ring): Same as Cleave, but spreading Rupture on 3 or more targets for maximum Energy regeneration and switching between Mutilate and Fan of Knives as CP generator.

I don't use the legendary cloak tho atm, since I am missing 4-set head (everything else would be a dps waste).

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

Above all: Agility. Everything scales with it. Especially with Assa.

1. Mastery - Increases Agonizing Poison/Poison Bomb/Envenom/etc. effectiveness. Due to Master Poisoner, the effect of mastery is even further enhanced. It stacks so high, that it makes it really good (This even stacks, for instance: Agonizing Poison gets better, then it gets more enhanced by Master Poisoner and then on top the increased damage from Envenom - so much more damage)

2. Crit/Versatility - While crits improve my CP generation and Envenom crits hit like a truck, I might lose CPs due to the fact my passive 'Seal Fate' is more likely to generate 'too much' CP - for instance: I got 3 CP, I use Mutilate, both hits crit, I should have 7 CP, but I am capped at 5 - so a flat out dmg increment is on par with crit (at my current gear situation).

3. Haste - Well, increasing my 4-5% dmg from Autoattacks by a few % and that tiny amount of energy regeneration it gives me, sure helps - not. But if an Item (like the Gul'dan ring) gives me so much Mastery, I will take it of course (or set items/legendaries).

---

Gems/Enchants: All the way for Mastery (200 Agi gem ofc). Set bonus I already have (need to replace head tho).

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:

Master Poisoner - Explained in secondary stats order, it outweights Elaborate Planning due to the fact, how much mastery you can get.

Nightstalker - nothing is as good as this talent, since it boosts your dmg on priority targets (if they live long enough) by far.

Vigor - enables a more fluid rotation and improves the damage you get out of vendetta. The nerf to Deeper Stratagem was okay'ish, but Vigor gives way more benefits (Deeper Stratagem might be viable again if you have enough crit, mayber higher ilvl).

Cheat Death - can save you from many many deaths, Elusiveness might be an alternative on some encounters - hello Tichondrius mythic! - to soak stuff or simply, not dying to anything. (If it is not mainly about DPS in a certain progress fight, just to get some progress I even could for Elusiveness use my Legendary pants to get some Selfheal too until healers get comfortable. Although this will decrease my dps by quite a bit).

Thuggee - good on cleave, to always get your Garrote back up on priority target, but if an encounter ever has long living, stunnable adds, Prey on the Weak all the way - that's simply too good then for not taking it.

Agonizing Poison - Best option for maximum dps on ST/Cleave. Alacrity best option on super duper AoE fights, although that's probably something if you only want to push logs on Skorpyron.

Venom Rush - There are alternatives? This is the only talent is see on that row, sorry.

Background information

Raid experience (Current and previous)

For BC/WotLK I am just writing the final tier down. All other tier progression you can find in my armory profile.

BC: 3/6 Sunwell (Twins ~3%) prepatch clear.

WotLK (I was since ToGC raidleading):
10man hc: ICC clear + Halion down (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AP_JyYO3qyU)
25man hc: 12/13 hc down

Until Legion I stopped playing WoW, so this is about Legion:
EN mythic clear
ToV mythic 2/3 (14% tries on Odyn pre-nerf / Guarm post 7.1.5 due to guild not consistently raiding)
NH HC clear/ mythic 1/10 (if that joke of a boss counts)

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

BC/WotLK:
Hordentlich aufz Mowl on EU-Dalvengyr:
Casual guild clearing Karazhan ^o^. Wanted more than casual raids so I left them.
Irgendwie Cool on EU-Dalvengyr:
Semi-casual guild with which we killed Gruul, Magtheridon, SSC/TK. Our guild leader abondened the guild.
RUDEL SCHMUTZIGER KETZER on EU-Dalvengyr:
After doing so well on this guild in BC, in WotLK shortly before the release of ToGC our guild and raid leader left the guild. I became afterwards the raidleader and another guy the guild leader. With that we managed to clear atleast the 10-man content (25-man LK and Halion missing), and finishing ~1000 world rank WotLK, shortly before this guild got disbanded too.

Legion: Kamiwobo. Well, I did not longer feel happy raiding in that guild - even if I had a really good time in there. For more information I would talk personally about this.

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels

There are a few obvious reasons:
- You guys got a rather good progress.
- You need a rogue (I am a rogue).
- And it seems like that you guys having fun raiding.

I want to progress further, but I don't want to sacrifice my fun for this. This is after all a game. Also not having to do split raids and maintaining alts is a huge positive point, since I am a rather busy person (studying, work, girlfriend, etc). I can commit to a schedule, but not to too many extra tasks.

Those are all reasons, why I applied for Weeping Angels.

By the way: any Doctor Who fans there?

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

Hi Dregan,

Thanks for your interest and application to our guild.

Before I go over your application and logs, I just have a question for you:

What do you consider more important? Mechanical awareness or the ability to pump out sustained, high DPS?
Applicant
Hello Paulanke,

I consider them equally. For instance: Priority adds have to die, otherwise they might wipe the raid. But on the other hand, when we are lacking boss damage and we can handle the adds, then I am going to focus more on the boss.

In the end it all matters what is the raid/encounter specific priority. Which means (for instance): If I have to damage and interrupt the adds on Krosus, I will do this. If they are melting anyways and I am told to ignore them, I will.

Hi Dregan,

Thanks for the response.

The reason behind me asking you this question is because with the current state of our roster, we simply have no room for any more tunnel DPS.

There is really nothing to fault your overall application for - it is well detailed, and your logs are impressive.

My only concern stems from the fact that going through your logs (I have looked through pretty much all of your public heroic ones), I have noted that I can't really see much mechanical evidence in them: priority targetting, debuff soaking, and the like. Now, of course, there could be a legitimate reason for this, but my overall concern is that regardless of how strong a person's logs are, bringing in someone who isn't prepared to drop their boss damage for, ironically, the sake of killing the boss, simply isn't beneficial to us.

Don't get me wrong, there will likely be times where we need to have people sit on the boss to meet a DPS requirement, but my overarching question is really whether you are willing to do what is necessary to kill the boss without hesistation, as opposed to contributing to us wiping needlessly.
Applicant
Hello Paulanke,

like I mentioned earlier, when I am expected to do (more) mechanics, I do them. I got for instance a log of Gul'dan (wipe, tho but we were progressing on him): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/LwX2NAtcWYq9pDCr#fight=19&view=replay - Soaking bonds, targetting adds, soaking the well of souls.
Don't know where exactly: But in a few tries I stepped over one tank to force gul'dans cleave because the other tank was dead and battlerezz on cd.

You can also check our Odyn mythic logs, where I am target switching to Hymdall to equalize the damage on Hyjra and Hymdall (also there I placed in P3 the yellow marks).

On Helya (did never get tho her in mythic tho): I was always soaking one of the purple pools in p3. Also in the first kills (where cheesing logs was not an option) tentacles were #2 on my damage done to list. (https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/FQDnPApT71fH8gjx#fight=16&type=damage-taken&ability=232450)

I am definately not getting you wrong, my goal at the end of the day: Kill the boss. I don't want to be the culprit that wasted 20 people's afternoon because I did not do my job.
Mistanke
Okay well, I find no fault with your application and I am happy with your responses, so I'm prepared to give you a shot.

Going to accept this application, welcome and whisper any officer online for an invite!
Dregan
Okay, thank you for this chance.

I will start the realm transfer and will whisper you guys when it's done.
