Character name: Yanbra
Why should we choose you and what is your reason for applying?:
Age: 23First of all I would like to add, that my application is not only limited to play my mage, since I'm comfortable to play any ranged class, except elemental shaman. I had to reroll my class 2 times during legion in progress, which lead me to play mage, shadow, and retri pala (only for guldan progress though).
In my old guild, I was one of the most reliable people. I didn't miss any raids, except absolutely necessary, which was only the case, when I was in a hospital for a week. Other than that, I always do my preraid work (reading up on mechanics, tactics, class forum (altered time), logs from other players , class fantasy and necessary daily/weekly farming). I am also very focused on optimizing my gear, which results in using simcraft a lot and always sim my stat weights after every item i changed to get an optimal knowledge, of what item is even an upgrade an how much.
I also put a lot of effort in communicating with fellow class mates in the guild, to optimize our play during the raid.
I know that I don't have the gear currently, because I just came back to the game, but since the expansion is over anyways, I hope this won't affect my chances for a trial spot. The reason why I quit during Legion is, that the effort, that I had to put in my character(s) outside the raid times was making me feel like i did raid in a 7-days raiding guild instead of 3 days. So I just decided it was enough for me, when my old guild disbanded. I hope this changes with the new expansion and I'm looking forward, to finally raid mythic again.

Why are you leaving your current/last guild?: My last guild disbanded, when we were progressing Guldan for the same reason many other guilds did the same. Legion just asked too much of semi-hardcore raiders and it just wasn't a 3-days raiding experience anymore, if you had to farm AP on all other days.
Why do you want to join Santa Maria?: You have very suitable raid times for me and are on my main realm as well. I didn't know you guys cause back when I raided in Vanguard, you didn't exist.
What is your raiding experience this expansion?: I raided EN with my Mage and accomplished WR 183 Xavius with my guild. After that I had to switch to Shadow, as we didnt need 3 Mages for ToV or NH. After we killed Helya on WR 262, we did some nice ranks in NH (also me playing shadow) but we decided to no longer raid on Guldan, since people didnt want to play the game anymore.
When did you start playing WoW?: Started pretty late, with the release of Warlords of Draenor.
Do you have a reliable PC & connection?: Yes
Are you comfortable speaking on Discord?: Yes
Do you know anyone here who can vouch for you?: No
