Give us an explanation for your gear choices, including why you prioritize certain stats:
Gear choices are all primarily based on sims, which if the first thing I will do whenever I see a potential upgrade. For ww in general vers is your best stat followed by crit and mastery, but for me mastery and crit is getting to be even due to a large amount of vers on my current gear. This ofc being a good thing, as it indicates a healthy stat distribution. Haste has always fallen of for windwalkers due to its main effect being energy regen, which will always hit a point for monks where you flat out don’t need more. With raid fights that give you downtime, the energy regen will be even less of an issue giving haste an even lower value than it has in sims.
As for traits Windwalker is in this tier defined by having 3 really solid traits that don’t stack, and 1 really solid one that does. Leaving you with a combination of 6 traits that is heavily superior to any other. This is both a blessing and a curse as it this combo is hard to obtain but gives you really high potential if you achieve it. Currently I am 1 2/6 chance on dungeon item buy from having this combo, with my equipped set being 5/6 bis traits.
Do you have any logs from your recent raids?
My BFA raiding has been limited, but I will include the logs from the only bit mythic raiding I did, 2/8 with pugs + some friends. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/25919914?z19&mode=detailed#
My most relevant logs would be those from last time I raided seriously though which would be in Antorus with world 61 guild Myst:
I raided most of Legion on a ret/prot paladin:

Your Raiding Background: It feels most natural to me to merge the two following point.
Please give a brief overview of your guild history and what is the reason for leaving your current/last guild?
What is your raiding experience? (starting with the most recent Tier(s))
I first got into raiding in Legion, clearing Cutting Edge for all raids. I alternated between tanking and dps-ing based on what my guild needed at the time. I tanked throughout EN before switching to main DPS. I stayed main DPS for the rest of Legion, but always kept my tank specs up to date on my paladin, monk, and D, as to help my guild progression needs. Because of this I ended up doing quite a bit off tanking still, progress tanking Aluriel, Star Auger, and Gul’dan in nighthold. Aswell as Aggramar in Antorus. Along with this I did quite a bit of farm tanking in all raids.
In terms of progression Legion was a bit rocky for me as a result of my limited evening schedule and non-existent experience going into the expansion. I spent the majority of Legion in a 2 day guild raiding Wednesdays and Sundays that started off as a part of “Stark Industries”, and split into “Unacceptable” for Nighthold, finishing tier 19 at world 635. At this point I was hungry for more and decided I would quit football to raid 6 days in a world 30-40 guild called “Drive” on Ravencrest-alliance. This however was a decision I came to regret, and I quit Drive after killing Maiden of Vigilance world 42. I returned to “Uacceptable”, took up raid leading, and finished tier 20 at world 568. I went into Antorus with unacceptable, but as the guild started falling apart towards the end of the tier, I once again looked to squeeze in more raiding at the expense of football and joined then world 61 guild “Myst” on Draenor, to raid 3 days. Thinking I had found I balance between football and raiding I was planning to raid in BFA with Myst, which then backfired when I got an offer to join a new football team higher up the leagues, leaving me with less time for raiding, and forcing me to quit Myst.
I spent most of my playing time this expansion doing m+ and pvp-ing as it is more flexible content for when I choose to engage in it. However, with me recently shattering my ankle leaving me side-lined for god knows how long I’m choosing to go with the whole “shoes on shelf” thing. So now I am once again looking to get into raiding.
What websites/resources do you use to keep yourself updated on the game and your class?
As player I really enjoy going into the details of any spec that I play and I always strive to expand my knowledge. But since I'm not going to be writing a full essay/guide here I think describing my classes strenghts and weaknesses, and how it can contribute to a raid team, is the best way of showing my class knowledge.
Starting of, as a damage dealer windwalker is capable of good Single target, cleave, and aoe damage, both bursty and substained. The real strenght of the current windwalkers damage is to me its flexability. With the current lvl 100 talent choice allowing us to once again use the chargebased damaging cooldown of Storm Earth and Fire windwalker possess a rare ability to align its burstwindows to fit the raid encounter.
For survivability windwalker comes equiped with tools to deal with both types of dmg aswell as having a flat shield, both on reasonably short cd-es. Windwalkers main defensive weakness is its lack of an immunity, which on certain encounters (and tiers - ToS 2017 #neverforget) can see it outmatched by other classes.
Windwalkers come equiped with an almost unparalleled mobility that can be used both to get you out of danger, and into positions to deal damage.
Windwalkers probably biggest weakness would have to be its almost complete lack of ranged abilities. However this can often be made up for by its mobility, and its ability to pool resources during downtime.
Both when I work on learning a new class, aswell as keeping up to date with my own I always try to have as many sources as possible. And I always try to test out the information I find for myself to get my own impression on it.
My sources consist of class discord and websites, warcraftlogs, and sims, aswell as other proficient players of the class. And though some of them have to be taken with a grain of salt, depending on authors and whatnot, guides on wowhead and similiar sites can sometimes give insight or at the very least a different PoV.
What do you expect from us?
A stable, dramaless envirement, where raiders show up to raid prepared and focused, without being afraid to joke around when appropriate.
Do you know anyone in the guild, if yes who?
Where did you hear about us? (WoW Progress, MMO Champion etc.)
