Give us an explanation for your gear choices, including why you prioritize certain stats: Most things nowadays are done through raidbots, however when running Cold Steel Hot Blood, you want to prioritise crit and haste > mastery. Haste is the most consistent stat for Fury, so you always want a good amount of haste. I follow what my sims tell me and also make sure I am keeping up to date with the current APL to understand why certain stats are better. Mastery is better for AOE as the flat damage increase from Enrage scales with the more targets you are hitting, where'as crit will be better for ST because of Cold Steel Hot Blood. In 8.2 it is looking like the stats will remain the same but there might be some tweaks, but from testing a lot and raid testing, it is looking for same for fury.
Do you have any logs from your recent raids? Please provide extensive narrative as to why some logs are below average / anything specific you want us to take note of. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/33467694# Here are my logs, I was trialing in eXsto so my 8.1.5 farm logs are gone, however I contacted my old GM from Relax and now my 8.1 BoD and Uldir logs are now public. I have a low percentile on Stormwall due to the tank bug where the boss will randomly melee twice before doing the ranged attack on the tank when they move out of melee range of the boss. As for Rastakan I only focused on boss damage, we didn't really cheese the adds in Relax. Here is my boss damage logs for the raid, I'm not really much for cheesing until we're on easy farm, my main goal is to kill the boss and do the best I can do the boss. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/33467694?mode=detailed&z21#z21&partition=1&difficulty=5&metric=bossdps
I also suggest you have a look at my Uldir logs as well in 8.0 and 8.1, so you can see how I do on Arms too, I play all 3 specs of my class and try and master all of them. I think that's important when you main a class. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/33467694#z19&partition=1
Do you have any upcoming events or plans that will make you unavailable for a long period of time (such as holidays/exams, etc)? I have no life so, nah :))
Meeting the requirements:
What is your normal latency(ms) and FPS during raids? (Ideally give us the specs of your PC).

Internet Speed (to Frankfurt DE where WoW servers are based) -
Can you raid on all of our raid days (Wednesday, Sunday, Monday)? In addition, if raid days are moved will this cause a problem? I can raid any day that is needed, the only time I will not be able to make a raid is if there is a very serious emergency, and even then I will do my best to make it to the raid or let you know as soon as possible.
Do you have Discord installed and are you willing to speak? Yes:)
Your Raiding Background:
Please give a brief overview of your guild history and what is the reason for leaving your current/last guild?
Relax - I raided with Relax in Uldir and BoD but sadly the guild took a turn for the worst and was looking to disband, so I decided to start trialing in eXsto.
I have just left eXsto as I didn't really feel like it was for me, I have explained all of this to Edgey so he has a very good idea of why I left and also knows Kenny (the GM of Exsto) so those two have had a talk as well.
What is your raiding experience? (starting with the most recent Tier(s)).
BoD 9/9M (WR 334 rip relax)
Uldir 8/8M (WR 236)
Antorus 11/11M (WR 450)
ToS 7/9M (had to stop playing due to irl, I raided with Provoke at this time, around WR 320 at the time but, who cares cause that wasn't KJ)
(I was trash in WoD so, this progress is not really note worthy as it was all done when we had extra buffs, legendary rings etc.)
I started raiding Mythic in WoD.
What websites/resources do you use to keep yourself updated on the game and your class? I mostly read the Warrior discord, however I have direct contact with some top warriors such as Archi (the main theorycrafter) and Revvez that I talk to regularly about the class, theorycrafting, PTR testing etc.
What do you expect from us? I want somewhere to learn, grow and improve as a player. My main goal in this game is to be the best I can, so I want somewhere that has better players than me so I can adapt and learn from them. Somewhere that can offer me criticism, practice and good play is what I am looking for. I also want somewhere that outside of raiding I can get to know people, do some keys and play other games with during downtime in WoW. I feel that Bad Luck can offer me that.
Do you know anyone in the guild, if yes who? I know Naladra and Coma, both are most likely trialing here from what I have heard. Both of them come from Relax and can vouch for me should it be needed.
Where did you hear about us? (WoW Progress, MMO Champion etc.) I found the guild on WoW progress and had heard about it from my friend Coma who is also applying here.
Lastly, is there anything else you'd like to mention? I have spoken to Edgey about a fair few things, so he already knows a fair bit about me. If you have any questions about my application or me in general, then let me know:)
Thank you for taking the time to read my application, I hope to hear from you soon.
