Class Knowledge

Please tell us your opening rotation (bullet-point form or similar is fine). If you play multiple specialisations then please do this for each one

Frost
1. Potion + 2 sec pre-cast Frostbolt.
2. Frozen Orb (Orb before Icy Veins cuz now Icy veins is in gcd).
3. Icy Veins.
4. Throw Ice Lances with Fingers of Frost procs.
5. Comet Storm (If chosen).

Arcane
Start the fight with the burn phase:
1. Potion + 2 sec pre-cast Arcane Blast (AB).
2. Charged up (if chosen) or else, farm for 4 Arcane Charges.
3. Rune of Power (if chosen).
4. Arcane Power.
5. Arcane Missles (AM) when I get Clearcasting proc (in case of AoE, Arcane Explosion)
6. Presence of Mind (PoM) seconds before Arcane Power expires, followed by instant 2 Arcane Blasts.
7. Arcane Blast as a filler.
8. Evocation before moving to the conserve phase.

Its seems that I won't play Fire this tier so I won't write it. But, it doesn't that I won't be glad to answer anything about it.

Please tell us your general rotation or priority system (bullet-point form or similar is fine). If you play multiple specialisations then please do this for each one

Frost
1. Frozen Orb on cooldown
2. Icy Veins on cooldown (preferred with Frozen Orb before)
3. Comet Storm (If chosen).
(in case of AoE, here enters Blizzard).
4. Frostbolt followed by Flurry and Ice Lance when I get BF proc (Only if I have less than 3 Icicles when I chose Glacial Spike talent).
5. If I have more than 3 Icicles and chose Glacial Spike talent, I'd prefer to save the BF proc and use it with Glacial Spike (GS) - Then cast GS followed by Flurry and Ice Lance to get maximum damage with Shatter effect.
6. Ebonbolt (If chosen) when I have 5 icicles and no BF proc and then back to 5(with GS talent ofc)
7. Frostbolt as a filler.

Arcane
Here I'll explain the conserve phase priority:
1. Build 4 Arcane Charges - Charged Up, Arcane Orb (Depends on what is chosen).
2. Arcane Missles (AM) when I get Clearcasting proc. In case of AoE, Arcane Explosion followed by Arcane Barrage at 4 Arcane Charges.
3. Arcane Barrage in case I have 4 Arcane Charges and my mana is lower than 50-60%.
4. When Arcane Power is up and Evocation has less than 15 secs of cooldown - start over the burn phase (it's important to have enough mana for the burn phase along with 2 charges of Rune of Power in case it is chosen)/
* In case Nether Tempest - maintain it up and always cast it on 4 charges.

Its seems that I won't play Fire this tier so I won't write it. But, it doesn't that I won't be glad to answer anything about it.

Please list your current stat priority (screenshots of your character profile on SimCraft/RaidBots will also suffice), and then explain the benefits of each stat for your specialisation, making sure to include any softcaps or breakpoints you are aiming for

It really depends on sims. I always sim myself with simcraft software and check the stats priority in RaidBot: https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/dEbg6d61gJ6GJJRciFSGL3

Let's take an example of Frost:
As you can see here in Raidbot, the highest priority after Intellect is Crit because as a frost mage, it's really important to get to a crit cap of 33.34% (or really near that) which is the Shatter cap - means that I'll always get a crit with the shatter effect.
Haste after Crit because the more haste I have, it'll be quicker to farm for procs with frostbolt.
Then, Vers to increase damage and Mastery.

* Happy to answer about Arcane and Fire if needed.

Please list your current talent setup, without abbreviations, detailing for each row whether the choice changes for Single Target, Cleave, and AoE

Frost
1. Lonely Winter (Bone Chilling is also an option but I'd prefer Lonely Winter in a ST raid boss)
2. Shimmer (rarely Ice Floes, when I know I should move a lot and without blink, like in Varimathras Mythic).
3. Incanter's Flow.
4. In case I chose GS, I prefer to play with Ebonbolt for the reason I wrote up at the rotation. Else, Frozen Touch.
5. No matter, depends on a specific roles I get in the raid.
6. Usually, Comet Storm. If it's a council encounter, I consider to go with Splitting Ice and in a massive AoE fight I'll take Freezing Rain.
7. Glacial Spike.

Arcane
1. Rule of Threes (Arcane Familiar in rare occasions of massive heavy AoE)
2. Slipstream or Shimmer - in most cases I'd prefer slipstream for a better mobility.
3. Generally, Rune of Power mainly for the burn phase. In fights that require a lot of movement, then consider Incanter's Flow.
4. Charged Up in ST and Resonance for cleave and AoE.
5. Chrono Shift(unless I get a special role that requires to use something else).
6. Touch of magi (nether tempest in AoE).
7. Overpowered (Arcane Orb in AoE fight).

An important note: failure to play optimal specialisations may result in loss of raid spot/being sat. Please confirm you have acknowledged this
Yes

Raid Related Info

What is your opinion on sitting during progression (potentially for multiple bosses)?

I'm a part of a group and should put the group before my own interest. I'm not this kind of a guy who gets upset when he's benched. I should always do what's better for the group and its' goals.

What is your opinion on Private vs Public logging?

I don't really care about it to be honest. I'll just say that share logs with people who can help you to improve and analyze performance.

Background information

Please list your previous guilds and a brief reason for leaving each of them (current expansion)

Kyphosis in Kazzak: An Israeli core guild where I played most of my time in WoW and the last I played in. Started the journey as a group of friends who played in a private server and moved to the retail into WoTLK and played together. In Pandaria the guild was reformed, but became unstable since then, always went on & off. In SoO, the guild returned to clear it and moved on to WoD, but we still couldn't keep it stable unfortunately. In Legion, we tried our best, but it was finally over due to retarded ego fights. Personally, regardless of that, Legion was a time when I decided to put an effort in finishing my studies and obviously it was reflected in the performance there. In retrospect, I think I should’ve taken a break even then.

Divergent in Ravencrest (Disbanded): T15 + T16 - Rank Top 90. Joined at a recommendation of my good friend who played there (Played in world 2nd guild in TBC) and left near the end of the guild in good terms to join the re-established Kyphosis.

The Brigade in The Maelstrom: Played for a very short period at the start of Tier 17 and left due to an unexpected personal issue.

Why have you chosen to apply to Weeping Angels?

On a personal note, at the end of WoD and in most of Legion I was deep in my studies and tried my best to keep playing. In fact, I had no time to farm for legendries and M+ properly. I stopped care about logs and analyzing my performance like in the past. I had to take a lot of breaks but insisted not to quit although my motivation to play was fu**ing low. In addition, the environment where I played was unstable and I felt really bad there and felt I couldn’t bring myself to maximize my skills.
Now, after I finished my studies,found a stable job and the guild disbanded, I’m starving for raiding progression in a new environment with people who have the same mindset and want to success. I have the time to commit myself 110% to raiding that I love so much and have a huge motivation to progress. All I need is a chance in a great raiding environment like you. I know it’s hard, but I am asking you to not judge me by this dark period and give me the chance to even just speak to you and prove my knowledge and that I’m worth. I can 100% promise you that the one who'll give me that chance won't regret it. I'll do my best to do so.

I can promise you that besides good DPS, I have few other things for the guild:
1. Great raid awareness and always willing to perform extra tasks.
2. Wide raiding experience acquired by years of playing.
3. Mature, dedicated, communicative and always willing to share and contribute ideas to promote the group.
4. Nearly 100% attendance. I consider the guild as a “second home” and put it in high priority in my life. Showing up at least 30-45 minutes before invites to verify that I’m perfectly ready to maximize performance. In addition, as I said, my motivation to play after all I’ve been through is great!
5. Fast learner who always come prepared to encounters in every aspect, not just by watching/reading boss guides, but also watching POVs of the best of my class and deeply analyzing logs to learn where to improve.
6. Know what it means to be a part of a group. I'm not this kind of a guy who gets upset when he's benched or must take extra things on my back.
7. Know to get criticism and use it to improve.

I appreciate the quick responds. It's very important for me to get this chance again in a high raiding level, although that specifically at Legion, my numbers and kills were not so impressive, so I tried to touch every point of my way and yet, not "dig" too much deep and leave some things to speak about if I'll get it. Thank you very much and have a great reset day! :D
