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

Pre-pot
2x solar wrath at 2.6 seconds, 3x is close and maybe possible but can pre pull by about .2 seconds and gives very little extra dps so isnt worth it
Aplly sunfire, then moonfire (depends on the encounter this is for single target)
Use incarnation if appropriate and then continue with normal rotaion but prioritse not casting unempowered abliltys and dont hold ap for procs.

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

Do not let dots fall off, they need to be reapplyed at around 5-7 seconds left depending on the dot and its pandemic window, they can be reapplyed at any point in this window but can be held for a bouple of seconds if you know movement is coming shortly after.
Use incarn if appropriate and whilst in incarn do not repeat previous casts.
Do not over cap on astral power this generates our empowerments and is a lareg chunk of damage anyways useing startsurge/starfall.
Do not over cap on solar/lunar empowerments if you are at 100ap and have 3 empowerments use the ap anyways but if the spec is played properly anyways this shouldnt have to occur.
Aslong as you arent wasting resources by overcapping there is now rush to spend ap you can have a significant dps increase if you hold your starsurges for trinket/azerite procs or for movement as other than reapplying dots you lose alot of dps in movement if not prepared properly.
Use solar wrath as a filler.
Playing arround arcanic pulsar is a huge amount of your dps when done properly, this depends on your haste level so i will explain the rotation based on my current gear. first of all try to be around 90ap and make sure your dots dont need to be refreshed in the next 6 seconds. Then starsurge lunarstrike star surge lunarstrike solar wrath and starsurge. There are many ways this can be changed slightly but aslong as your abilitys arent a repeat of each other and you get the 2x starsurge in the window you cant go too wrong.

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

Crit = 3.33
Haste = 3.26
Mastery = 3.10
Versatility = 2.84
Intellect = 2.29

Generally the stat prioritation is Haste and mastery are the best but i have so much of both of those and such a samll amount of crit it is valued alot higher at this point in time.

Pretty much every single stat is just a damage multiplyer there are no special interactions they just increase damage by a certain percent or in masterys case most abilitys in the rotation
The only exception to this is haste because whilst it is only passive benefits it still increases our damage more than just you cast faster/ This is becuase it also increase tick rate of dots which is great for cleave fights and it also generates more ap. Not only does this mean more star surges and and empowerment casts but also mean more arcanic pulsar windows and more casts you can fit into them. There arent any real break points becuase their isnt an optimal amount of casts you want to fit in its just specific to your character. Aslong as you know what casts need to be in the window getting more haste doesnt matter.

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

level 15 - Nature's Balance, never change unless you need Force of Nature for things like mythic plus
level 30 - Wild charge, personal preferance but for highest putimecasting is by far the best in alomst all situations for mobility. In specific scenarios Tiger Dash is good, for example if the druids are going to be assigned to soaking on stormwall.
level 45 - Restoration Affinity, again personal preferance but for progression purposes the passive healing and potential self healing is far better that the other options.
level 60 - Typhoon is the most unique on this tier but all can be used in certain scenarios the best use for all of them in the current tier is Mass Entanglement for Mekkatorque and keeping the add together and rooted.
level 75 - Incarnation: Chosen of Elune, Even though Starlord sims better in almost all cases Incarn is the best choice here, its gets better than starlord depending of fight length, if there is every any down time and if there is ever much movement.
level 90 - Twin Moon/Stellar Flare, the only tier changed often as twin moons is better in alot of cleave or multidotting scenarions and stellar Flare is better for fights that are majority single target.
level 100 - Shooting stars, this is taken on every fight this tier other than oppulence becuase oppulence has high damage AoE burst Fury of Elune is taken. Every other fight single target or multi dotting Shooting stars is better.

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 think its an important part to raiding that everyone needs to be ok with if they care about the progression for their guild. I will always be happy to be sat aslong as the reason is valid obviously i would like to be in the raid for every boss but if i dont need gear on farm or if my class isnt suitable for an encounter of course i will understand being sat.

What is your opinion on Private vs Public logging?

I dont really care, whilst i enjoy trying to get good logs for progression i think it can certainly be useful to make logs private to make sure no one is padding the dps in ayway. For exaple if a call is made to stop dps everyone should stop immediatly and keeping logs private should make this happen. Although i believe players should play this way regardless of if logs are public or private always mechanics>dps but i will always enjoy trying to push my self and still maintain top logs and pulling high dps whilst listening to calls and and doing mechanincs as perfect as possible.

Background information

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

I started the expansion in a more casual guild called Nelivia and simply wanted to leave to progress more and push for cutting edge and join as good a guild as possible. My next and current guild is called Solenya and i am leaving as the guild is planning on dispanding in the coming weeks.

Why have you chosen to apply to Weeping Angels?

I have always wanted to push my self as hard as possible in progression and play with a full group of consistant players whilst still enjoying this. So i simply went to wow progress and looked at the top 10 guilds and Weeping Angels seemed the most suitable for me. I also really like your application process as it asks the questions about rotation and such which let you know if a player actually understands there class and spec. Whereas most application want you to write a personal statement and bullshit questionts like what was your favorite subject in school lol.
