Previous guilds and reasons for leaving

i played in boom-time on draenor for 1 and a half year, i left since i didn't rly enjoy raiding with them anymore, got burned out a bit from the game, so decided to take a break, and when i came back i wanted something else, so i joined catlike reflexes on kazzak, i knew from the start i didn't want to raid with them, since i only joined because a freind i had done some m+ with told me about it, so decided to join them just to reclear so mythic, instead of doing nothing.

Reason behind applying for Weeping Angels

i read your wowprogress, and it sounds like a solit guild, and you guys got a good progress for a 3 day raiding guild. and overall it seems like ppl are putting effort into the game.

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

don't rly have anything else to say, hopeing for the best :)

Hi Krog,

Thanks for your interest and application to our guild.

Your logs are good but your application in general is rather lacklustre.

I'd be really interested in particular in seeing a more in depth explanation of your stats including weights if you got them from SimC, and their benefits, and thus why they are ranked as they are.

I'm also struggling to understand your talent section, as I unfortunately do not play Balance Druid, so an explanation of each talent, their benefits, and why you swap them by encounter would also be nice.

As well as that, could you also just briefly explain what impact legendaries have on your rotation?

You also mention that you played in Boom Time and your enjoyment raiding with them reached an end. Out of curiosity - why is this?

Looking forward to your reply,
Paulanke

Hi Paulake sry for misunderstanding with the talents, i didn’t rly thing about it when i wrote the app, but im gonna go more in depth now.
Stats weights Mastery 21.24> int 19.43> vers 19.08> haste 18.66> crit 18.08 taken from simc (pure single target), the reason they are ranked as they are, is simply because its patchwerk. But the build all boomkins go for is haste>mastery>int>crit>vers, since haste is better on aoe, and mobility fights, since you can build astral power faster = you can cast starsurges when you’ll have to move, and you can cast your dots a bit fastest aswell, wich is a rather big dmg increase. On my sims, my haste is kinda low, and its because im 3% over the haste break point using Emerald dreamcatcher (legendary helmet), but if i were below it, my haste would be maby 4 points higher. For aoe 2+ targets, is it haste>mastery you go for, if your using the legendary shoulders, then you would go mastery>haste, since your moonfire dmg is gonna be insane with the steller buff on the targets (starfall applies a debuff to the target, making them take my mastery % as increase dot dmg, and with the shoulders wich also increase the dmg of moonfire my 20% and make it hit 2 targets. Because of this mastery is gonna be the best on aoe)
So lets move on to the talents, in tier 1 am i using, starlord (increase the cast speed of your empowered ability (lunarstrike and wrath) by 20%) wich make it rly strong on single target and aoe, since its basicly just 20% increase haste. Then in the tier 2 talents, am i using wild charge, its a disengage like hunters got, just on a 15 sec cd, wich is rly strong, cause you always have it up, for when i have to move, i could use blink aswell, but i prefer wild charge, since the cd on blink is 30 sec, and it also shapeshift me out of moonkin form. Tier 3 talents its the affinitys, for progress am i using guardian affinity, since its a 6% dmg reduction + you can shapeshift into bear form and heal yourself with frenzied regeneration, then for reclears am i using feral affinity, since its 15% increase movement speed, its rly strong since you can move away from certain abilitys quicker, and its just general a rly good feeling to use, since your faster, resto affinity is just a 3% of your max hp every 5 sec, its rly bad, since the healing isn’t rly needed. in tier 4 talents am i just using typhoon, but its rly dependent, on wich fight your on, you might need mighty bash (a 5 sec single target stun) or mass entanglement (aoe root), this tier isn’t rly that important, since its a utility tier. Tier 5 am i using inc for pure single target, since its a big cd (50% increase dmg and astral power generation for 30 sec) it can be rly good on aoe aswell, if you go mastery build, then you just want to keep up 1 starfall, and make your dots do all the aoe, but currently soul of the forest is the best talent to use for aoe (reduce the astral power cost of your starfall by 20, and increase the dmg of your wrath and lunarstrike by 20%, so even on aoe fight your gonna do a rather decent single target dmg). For tier 6 talent, am i using Blessing of the ancients for single target (increase the astral power generation of solar wrath and lunarstrike by 25%, you can use it to gain a solar buff, wich gives you 2 astral power every 2 sec, but its rly useless) and for aoe your gonna be using shooting stars (makes your dots proc a shooting star, wich gives you 4 astral power) so on aoe its rly strong, sicne the passive astral generation is rly high. For tier 7 talents am i using nature's balance for single target/spread aoe (everytime you use wrath, the duration of your sunfire is extended, by 4 sec, and when you cast lunarstrike the duration on moonfire is extended by 6 sec), since you don’t waste all the global cds by dotting all the targets up again, on aoe am i using steller drift (increase the dmg of starfall by 60% and increase the radius by 30% and make you able to cast while moving, inside starfall) its rly strong for aoe, and could be used on some single target fights, if you’ll have to move alot, since you can cast while moving inside starfall.
So for legendarys, for 2+ targets at some point during the boss encounter (krosus, star boy) am i using, my legendary wrist (makes you starsurge/starfall have a 20% to get a free starsurge/starfall) so when you get a starfall proc, you can save it for aoe, and that way have high burst aoe. and for single target am i using the emerald dreamcatcher (the helmet), it makes your starsurge cost 7 less astral power, every time you cast a starsurge, stacking up 2 times, its rly good on pure single target, since you can keep the buff for a long time, and that way make you able to get more value out every astral power spend. If i had the legendary shoulders, would i be using them on aoe (makes your moonfire hit another target with in 20 yard range, and increase the dmg of moonfire by 20%), they are quite strong, since you can maintain your high aoe forever. Then the legendary ring (reduces the cd of your celestial alignment by 1 sec, everytime you spend 12 astral power), its used on every single fight basicly, its rly simple, so not rly much to say about, since its used on every single fight.
Then a bit about why if left boomtime, i left them because i didn’t enjoy raiding with them anymore, 3 of the officers quit during en, including my former raidleader, and a some of the raiders left aswell, so because of that we had to replace them with new ppl, and i basicly disliked half of the ppl that joined, since boom-time is a guild with alot of banter, but they just weren’t funny, but annoying, and we keept wiping on reclears, since no one did mechanics, but just had a laugh if we wiped and blamed it on others, and i rly disliked raiding with them after a month in nh, since it keeps going on, so i decided to take a break, and when i came back, i raided with them for a week, and it just wasn’t enjoyable, since we wiped like 10 times on krosus alone, and some ppl just didn’t care about it, so i decided i wanted something else, something new.
