Keyá. Havoc Demon Hunter

Outside of this I can/should mention that i'm pretty fast with picking up a spec incase its needed for a certain boss. I'm not saying I should be in Method or in any of the world first push groups.
However i want you guys to know that i like playing this game. ALOT. To an extend that i'm trying to learn as much as i can about most specs in the game.

However i focus on my warlock and my demon hunter the most. Warlock for raiding and Demon hunter for mythic+ pushing.

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

Affliction:
Prepot at 2 -> Haunt -> Shadow bolt ->Dark soul ->Phantom singularity -> UA x3~5 -> Darkglare -> Balefire branch trinket -> Deathbolt.

Destruction:
Prepot at 2~3 -> Cataclysm -> Infernal -> Incenerate -> Dark soul -> Ignition fuse trinket -> Conflag -> Chaos bolt -> Chaos bolt -> conflag -> Chaos bolt

Demonology:
Prepot at 5 -> Hard cast demonbolt -> Demonic Strength or Bilescourge -> Felguard -> Vilefiend -> Dreadstalkers -> 3x shadowbolt -> Hand of guldan -> Tyrant

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

Affliction:
Always pool for double UA's since it has the contagion effect from legion build into it now. Never let dots drop or refresh them without pandemic trait. Use haunt on CD. Save darksoul for darkglare if saluted for the fight.

Destruction:
Playing with eradication is pooling as much shards and procs as you can before you unless the combo untill you dry out.
Playing without eradication is basically casting chaos bolt on cooldown unless you're pooling for your havoc window. Then you build up your shards so you can at least fit 3 ~ 4 chaos bolt into that window.

Havent played demonology during progression or farm since it's generally worse than above 2

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

Destruction warlocks are pretty easy. Item level is king, give us more intellect and we'll smack even more damage to your target dummies and raidbosses.

However our mastery is a bit weird. We gain a flat ammount of damage because of it and a random chance on top of that ammount of damage. So having a good ammount of mastery isnt that bad.

Critical strike. Very simple. Chaos bolt damage scaled with critical strike rating. The more we get it. The more it hurts.

Haste. Very simple. The more haste we have the faster our hard hitting chaos bolts come flying out of our fingertip.s

Versatility. A on and off stat for destruction. Warlocks are generally a tanky class and we can become even more defensive with talents. Having some flat damage reduction on top of that is always nice. But it isnt something we should aim for. Aswell as the damage gained from mastery and critical strike are more valued than the damage gained from versatility

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

https://gyazo.com/7278c086d918b4d40e2c03ee7d426d94
The cookie cutter build. This is generally used for EVERYTHING for destruction.`

https://gyazo.com/f25a2c53704af6acc1766ecdb01fbc90
The more skillfull single target build. If you can play with Internal combustion and Eradication uptime this is better than the Flashover - Reverse combo.

However on progression its generally saluted to play flashover-reverse combo since it allows for rotational flaws when you're learning how to play the 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 don't like sitting in this game i put ~5-6 hours a day during the week and ~15 hours a day during the weekend in.

THAT BEING SAID,
I'm currently maining a warlock. Warlocks are considered the OP spec right now. So generally i dont expect to be sat unless my class is terrible at the fight.

If my class is terrible at the fight (e.g. you needing a full immuntity class setup) im fine with it. But otherwise warlocks are your supreme glass cannons with strong defensive options. The only thing we can't do really is survive one shots.

What is your opinion on Private vs Public logging?

I salute both. Whatever guild decides is what i follow.

I'm more of a mechanical player so i'll always be lower on the "padding" meters.
I prefer to kill the bosses rather than to risk wiping every pull to get the perfect pull for those digital penis meters on warcraftlogs.

I use warcraftlogs to learn my own flaws or raid flaws and put this forward to officers/gm/rl when need be.

Background information

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

Sentenced (start of legion) casual raiding guild, started playing the game here

Swapblasters (Tomb of sargeras) Wanted more serious raiding and went to a slighlty better guild. Grew to become a officer and the raid leader here eventually. Untill the team broke up during avatar progression since they didnt want to wipe anymore.

Malice (Antorus) Wanted even more serious raiding and went here. Had generally alot of fun and good times in this guild.. However during argus progression they refused to bench their warrior tank (that randomly died every attempt) for a double druid - monk combo with me playing guardian. Left during argus progression

Provoke (Antorus) Went to a friends guild (2 day raiding) that beat malice to cutting edge and cleared the raid with them in 1 day. After that the guild decided to break up and i moved on to look for a better guild.

Mythic ravers (antorus - current) A friend suggestion i'd apply here and give it a shot. So i did. Went here. Flew through my trial in 1 week and made it to core raider withing 3 weeks. They obviously saw what i could provide and was rewarded for it.

Why have you chosen to apply to Weeping Angels?

Currently my guilds progressing through the tier with a roster of 29 people. So 9 people get benched every raid day. Normally this wouldnt bother me that much as 7 of those are trials.

However in the current situation:
- I'm a core raider
- I'm one of 10 people that met our guilds requirements for battle.
- I'm a warlock
- I'm probably the strongest mechanical player and progression minded player in the guild.
- I was benched on grong for no reason at all other than to rotate our 29 players.
- I'm currenly benched on Opulence for no reason at all other than to rotate our 29 players.

And i'm benched over trials and people that didnt meet our requirements for this raid. This obviously annoyed me so i went to my gm/rl and talked to him about this.

And after that chat the conclusion was that not meeting the requirements basically only affects the vanity rewards from the raid (as they distribute them with a attendance system)

So i put an amazing amount of effort into this game and I'm currently getting jack-shit for it.

I want to play this game. I want to progress raid and push content. It's the only reason i play this game for.
I'm willing to reroll and have 3 characters ready and be swapped in just to not be benched (altho this is unreal and most likely will never happen. Im willing to go to that extend)

Hey Rachellá,

Thanks for applying to Weeping Angels and sorry for the slightly slow response.

Unfortunately, we cannot find enough evidence in this app (as there are only really Heroic logs and your Uldir logs are sadly unremarkable) to be confident you would be a competitive fit here, and thus we are going to decline it.

Good luck with your guild hunt!
