I confirm that I have read the above guild rules and that failure to conform to these may result in loss of raid spot
Yes
If there are occasional issues with attendance, please let us know here

I work in healthcare and occasionally (3-4 times a month, I will know the exact dates for next month on the last days of the current month and I will be able to announce them) I will have to be on call at the hospital, which means working for about 36 hours at a time.

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

Prepot reck, charge, siegebreaker, rampage - fury

Intercept taunt, demo shout, shield block, avatar, thunderclap

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

Try to cast rampage as many times as possible, but if I'm already enraged I might delay the cast until I'm above 90 rage. Use sudden death procs to cast execute, preferably while enraged, but I will not delay it for long if i'm not enraged to avoid wasted procs. Cast bloodthirst on cooldown, but try to keep raging blow at 1 stack so I don't waste potential recharge time.
I will try to use heroic leap/charge for rage generation when I don't need it for movement intensive fights or individual boss mechanic purposes. For example on Mekkatorque I wouldn't do that since I'd need heroic leap if I get the bomb on me to get behind cover quickly and charge to get back in.
As for cooldown management I will try to use siegebreaker, dragon's roar on cooldown OR if the fight requires burst at certain moments. Recklessness on cooldown, delay only if I can align it with BL, 2nd pot or boss HP < 20%, or if I know it will be wasted due to having to move.
My defensive CD's are: enraged regenaration which I will use for moments of heavy raid dmg, healers dead or if I simply fuck up with some mechanic; Rallying cry which I will use for moments when heavy raid healing is required or if I see raid HP is pretty low to help out the healers. Also, I have berserker's rage and intimidating shout, but their uses are pretty limited in the current raid.

For protection, I try to keep extend demo shout as much as possible with thunderclap. I use shield block whenever the boss is attacking me and it's not about to cast something in the next few seconds. I try to use ignore pain whenever my rage allows it. Shield slam and thunderclap on CD, revenge when it's free of cost, fill with devastate. I'll try to use avatar at the beginning of the fight or align it with add spawns so I utilize the sick protection aoe dmg. There is a trait which grants ignore pain when you cast avatar so there is an option to use it defensively. Last stand when I need a quick heal and healers are indisposed or if I have no shield block charges and I know I'm about to get smashed. Shield wall to mitigate big hits or extended periods of heavy dmg. Demo should on cooldown or some situations when I know I'm about to get heavy dmg and I have no other CD's, but this probably means I fucked up somewhere. Spell reflection to mitigate magic damage.

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

Weapon DPS 8.51

Off Hand Weapon DPS 4.01

Critical Strike 3.27

Mastery 3.11

Haste 3.05

Versatility 2.82

Strength 2.20

I always sim any gear I get. I've noticed haste has gone down in priority because it's reaching a point where your cooldowns are low enough to stay enranged most of the time, so mastery pulls ahead. However, with the Cold Steel Hot Blood trait, crit seems to be the best secondary stat.

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

Not much flexibility with the current talents for fury warriors.

Endless Rage. The alternatives are either for PVP or leveling.

Double time - gives 2 charges instead of 1. On fight where stuns are needed I will go storm bolt. Other option is just shit.

Sudden death - execute procs, great for rage generation and damage. Other options sim lower. Furious slash sounds good in theory, but it's a hassle to keep on the target especially in the current high mobility fights. Inner rage also sims lower, but bloodthirst is higher up on the priority list because of the Cold steel hot blood trait.

Warpaint/Bounding stride depending on whether or not I need mobility

Carnage - only option.

Dragon roar most of the time, but I might switch to bladestorm for M+ or bosses with many adds.

Siegebreaker - just because it sims the best. Other options sound interesting, but are objectively worse.

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 wouldn't like it if I come home from work, wanna raid something and I'm told I gotta sit, but in the same time I understand why it's needed and will comply with such decisions.

What is your opinion on Private vs Public logging?

I don't have an opinion on this subject because so far it hasn't affected me. I haven't been in any high end guilds since I've started playing again and I don't know what you people confront with logging-wise, but I'd love to know. So my final choice is public logging so everyone can see I'm the best. Hah

Background information

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

I need to give you a brief history of my WoW xp.

I started playing this game when I was 14, in 2005, like one month after it came out in Europe. I had a grand old time then. Imagine being 14, a Warcraft fan (had pirated CD's which we would pass around class) and logging into WoW the first time. It was truly amazing and I consider the whole experience to be a rite of passage into my late teens and adulthood. It thought me that good rewards come with hard work, it thought me how to socialize with people I don't know IRL, it thought me to seek information about the things I do, e.g. researching and getting to know the ins and outs of my class (mage at the time), boss tactics, it thought me teamwork, commitment and even working with people I don't like for a greater goal. So much of this transpires to RL situations like work, networking and even morals to some extent.

I was in a few guilds, first on the Zenedar realm then on Tarren mill, with whom I have killed C'Thun and something like 4 or 5 bosses in Naxxramas. Sadly, we have stopped progress in Naxx due to the fact that TBC was around the corner and blizz made it so you could buy rank 14 gear for honor points. I quit the game in 2008, a bit after Sunwell came out. As a side note, one of my guilds was Eden Aurorae, which was famous for making the Warcraft movie "Tales of the Past". I joined them after they made the movie, but I felt like bragging.

While I was in med school, my friends and I decided to play WOTLK on a private 20x server (I think current xpac was cata or mop back then), because we couldn't afford a very big time investment like retail required. We cleared all WOTLK content in a matter of months. (this paragraph is just for history purposes).

Then, my friends and I moved to games like LoL (diamond 3 max rank), CSGO (LEM max rank) and PUBG (master max rank). Over time, my interest for such fast paced games started to decline (I think i'm getting old), so in November 2018 me and a friend started playing BFA. I chose not to level my old mage, instead opting to boost a warrior to 110 since my friend "needed a tank". He invited me to my current guild "Champions Rising", then he quit the game shortly after and I switched to playing fury. I wasn't very much into raiding Uldir, but with the release of BDA I found myself wanting to raid and I'm getting the itch to get into something harder.

My logs are nothing special, but I think they are decent for my first raid tier and I have the desire to improve as a player.

Why have you chosen to apply to Weeping Angels?

Because you are one of the best guilds on the server. I realize I may be setting my bar a bit high by asking to join you, but I took a look at your application form and said eh, why not? I have no prior mythic raiding experience, but I promise I learn fast and I'm generally sociable.

Hello there Theras,

Sadly, we cannot find strong enough evidence in your application to convince us that you would be a competitive fit in our team, and therefore I will be declining this application.

Regards,
Yaru
