Your Character:

Name: Sighco
Class: Monk
Armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/ravencrest/Sighco
UI Screenshots (1 while in combat as well): https://gyazo.com/810f3289459c9d9507498db2ad599b02
RealID: Sighborg#21640

Give us an explanation for your gear choices, including why you prioritize certain stats:

Most of my gearing choices are made based on various research, including Class Discords and the theorycrafting they do. As for the actual gear choices, I try to optimize my stats based on their work as well as simming (when appropriate, as it can be skewed for tanks and doesn't work for healers).

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.

Most recent HEALING logs:

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/ravencrest/cdbot?mode=detailed&z21#difficulty=5&partition=2&metric=hps

In these logs we can see low parses for Mekkatorque, which was generally me holding CDs and mana for portions of the fights where we'd usually wipe (since everyone was oom and had no CDs). Blockade is also low on the monk due to me handling the soaking and generally spending quite a lot of time either on the move or out of range of the raid. As for Jaina, we played 5 healers and I was just DPSing.

Most recent TANK logs:

During Antorus I progressed on Druid, DK and Monk (Monk was only used for Argus because of their insane strength on that boss). During ToS I swapped between Druid and DK depending on the fight.


Personal information:

Age: Ingi Hilmar SigurĂ°sson
Country: Iceland
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, nothing coming up.

Meeting the requirements:

What is your normal latency(ms) and FPS during raids? (Ideally give us the specs of your PC).
I average 70-75 FPS on setting 8 with 20-45 MS.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB - Intel i-7 8700 3.2 GHz - 16 GB RAM.

Can you raid on all of our raid days (Wednesday, Sunday, Monday)? In addition, if raid days are moved will this cause a problem?

There is neither a problem with the days nor with being flexible if a day needs to be moved around, barring unforeseeable circumstances of course.

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

Yes and yes. I will generally speak up whenever I feel like I have something of value to add to ensure a smoother experience for everyone, but I can also sit and not say anything if that's more beneficial for a particular encounter (eg. Mekka during bots).

Your Raiding Background:

Please give a brief overview of your guild history and what is the reason for leaving your current/last guild?

I joined my last Guild (NESC-Ravencrest) because I know a few of the people from IRL and decided to help them out in BoD (as I took a break in Uldir since it launched just as I was moving and starting Uni - I also played with NESC at that time). I didn't like their atmosphere as well as the fact that they are, what I'd consider, a very casual Guild. So once we got CE I decided it was time to move back into, again according to me, serious raiding. I started off as a tank with them in Uldir but when I decided to come back and help them in BoD they only needed healers (which isn't an issue for me, I consider myself quite a versatile player).
I have been in quite a few Guilds over the years, but not many worth mentioning (I'm still searching for my forever-home).

What is your raiding experience? (starting with the most recent Tier(s)).

BfA:

BoD: Cutting Edge
Uldir 2/7M.

Legion:
Antorus: CE
ToS: 7/9M
Nighthold: CE
ToV: CE
EN: CE

WoD:
HFC: CE
Highmaul: 1/7M (Guild disbanded, causing me to lose motivation after yet another disbanded Guild).

MoP:
SoO: 10 + 25 CE.

Cata:
DS: 6/8 HC pre-nerf, 7/8HC 5% nerf, 8/8HC 10% nerf.
FL: 6/7HC pre-nerf, Raggy post-nerf.

What websites/resources do you use to keep yourself updated on the game and your class?

I generally refer to Discord as the class discords generally have knowledgeable people willing to answer questions as well as theorycrafters who put in a ton of time to help others be optimized. I will also refer to sites recommended in the discords such as: Icy-veins, Peak of Serenity, etc.

What do you expect from us?

A raiding Guild with a good atmosphere who are made up of a strong core and are like-minded individuals. Over all else i enjoy creating a smooth raiding environment for my team, in any way I can (whether it be by sacrificing logs for mechanics, or playing a spec/class I don't really enjoy because it benefits the raid as a whole more). I have more fun when people around me have fun, so I'll generally focus on doing my best to ensure that everyone around me has a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Do you know anyone in the guild, if yes who?

I don't think I do.

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

I saw you on WoWProgress

Lastly, is there anything else you'd like to mention?

I think I may have gone a bit out of topic on some questions and added what I would have otherwise like to add down here. So thanks in advance for reading my application, and if anything at all is unclear - please don't hesitate to either write to me on Battle.net or Discord, or even ask me to join Discord if that's easier for you.

Take care and best of luck in the future!

Hi Sighco,

Many thanks for your application. Unfortunately we have decided to go with someone else.

All the best for the tier ahead.
