Your Character: Crankyman

Name: Craig
Class: BM hunter
Armory link:

Give us an explanation for your gear choices, including why you prioritize certain stats: My current gear choices are all based around sims through raidbots using SIMc addon,

370 crest of the undying visionary
I am wearing is the BIS azerite helm for BM hunter due to it having primal instincts and overwhelming power with the secondary option of achive of the titans, extremely strong talents now that i have reached 5 re-orgination buffs within raids the Archive of the titans is an important trait to have. having atleast one primal instict on gear as a BM hunter right now is a must as it grants me a proc of barbed shot when used allowing me to mantain my 3 barbed shots longer or if needed for heavy burst allows me to get all 3 stacks active fast, plus the mastery.

385 flame-sterilized Spaulders
Currently Not BIS for my class however they beat out my other 385 shoulders as the gear stands right now due tot he Archive of the titans buff i have on them with as mentioned before the 5 uldir stacks i have currently

385 Shrapnel-Dampening Chestguard
This is not through personal choice to wear this chest jkust the best of what i have currently, i have 2 M+10 chest and this one currently outweighs the other quite a lot it has unstable Catalyst which is not great but not tterrible
and also Feeding Frenzy which i can utilise on certain bossfights such as Zek'voz if add cleave is more desirable.

Darkmoon Deck: Fathoms currently one of the best trinkets for my class however not the best i have been farming Harlan's loaded dice as with high enough item level this trinket is better, only managed a 365 one so far which does not outsim fathoms yet, although Harlan's can be very good on specific fights as 365 such as Taloc, due to procs and nature of them it can actually perform better on shorter fights.

375 Lustrous Golden Plumage is my current on use trinket and there is a few options for this slot, high enough Harlan's can sit in this postion, but there are better options, Gale callers boon being one which is currently one of our BIS trinkets i am yet to get one of hgih enough item level to beat out my Plumage, but given the option that would be my primary choice, the other notworthy trinket i suppose is Dooms wake i currently have a 370 and the use from this trinket comes from short burst heavy fights the burst damage on this trinket far exceeds my other mroe gradual selection i have currently although i have yet to find the boss of use for this that my other trinkets don't outperform.

the rest of the off pieces are filled with generally the highest Ilvl 2 crafted LW 385's which i am constantly re-rolling stats to try optimise my build, i currently have crit as my uldir proc but i am currently in the progress of changing this out as my stat weights have changed due to the amount of crit i will most likely be enchanting/sasocketing haste by the end of today.
current stat weights are: Crankyman -

Do you have any logs from your recent raids?

Personal information:

Age: 34
Country: England
Do you have any upcoming events or plans that will make you unavailable for a long period of time (such as holidays/exams, etc)? No

Meeting the requirements:

What is your normal latency(ms) and FPS during raids? (Ideally give us the specs of your PC). usually around 100-130 Fps depending on the fight so heavy rendor fights can drop me to 60-80 FPS

Can you raid on all of our raid days (Wednesday, Sunday, Monday)? Yes

Do you have Discord installed and are you willing to speak? Yes

Your Raiding Background: I started playing wow in MoP towards the end, i managed to achieve cutting edge within around 6-8 months of playing the game, we guild merged for the change to 20 man raiding for WoD where i was 11/12 mythic with around 350 pulls on archimonde playing my Boomie, at which point i had a child and took a year out of the game, i returned back in ToS and started working my way back up the raiding scene, i managed cutting edge ATB playing MM hunter and some alts for specific fights such as Affliction warlock for Coven of shivarra.

Please give a brief overview of your guild history and what is the reason for leaving your current/last guild? Since returning after my year break its been difficult fighting my way up the guilds, The first sort of decent raiding guild i was back in was the Hex Pistols there was a lot of guild drama happened people failing out so i stepped away from that as i am not into that stuff, i moved onto Defiance which so far has been great just lacking in the leadership/drive to actually push the content there is no pre-raid tactics people literally learn the day they turn up in the raid a lot of time is wasted due to this 30-45 mins of explaining mechanics every boss even ones that have been killed, a lot of people just don't put as much effort in as others most don't even pre pot or change to targets they should such as vectis tunneling the boss and the adds get 2 casts off, this has led to frustration where rather then causing guild drama i am just ready to move on.

What is your raiding experience? (starting with the most recent Tier(s)) currently 3/8 M Uldir, 11/11mythic ATB, 6/8 mythic ToS this was the raid open when i returned after my year break. 11/12M HFC with my boomie which is when i took a year out, 10/10M blackrock foundry with my boomie 7/7 mythic in Highmaul with boomie and 14/14 mytchi in Soo with my boomie

What websites/resources do you use to keep yourself updated on the game and your class? So for my hunter i use the standard Simc/raidbots for simming and stat weights, to keep up to date with my spec i tend to watch Gingi a lot and follow Azorthariain who helped me a fair bit with the issue in rotation, i am part of the Trueshot lodge discord as well as following Azortharians icy veins page.

What do you expect from us? Quality raiding, on a good schedule with good leadership, i also like to play wow a lot outside of raiding so having people around to be able to do other content such as M+ and alts would be great.

Do you know anyone in the guild, if yes who? No

Where did you hear about us? (WoW Progress, MMO Champion etc.) WoW Progress

Lastly, is there anything else you'd like to mention? I am a highly competitive person i try to push my character to it's limits, i really enjoy the tactic side of fights and strive to be the person that is reliable to do these tasks that are needed on specific fights. if my Application is not accepted some feedback on what improvements need to be made before considering applying again at a later date.

Hi Crankyman,

Many thanks for your application, unfortunately it has been unsuccessful. We have a very strong roster at the moment and don't feel we can accommodate you out of fairness to our current roster and you (you don't want to be on the bench every raid). I would encourage you to get back in touch with us in the future though.

Many thanks for your application and all the best.
