Character name: Katalystp
Why should we choose you and what is your reason for applying?:
Age: 28Personally, i'm easy to get along with and am social in voice comms, i try to integrate fast. When it comes to raiding, I always want to better myself, so, if on the occasion ive made a mistake, im very critical of myself and I'm motivated to never make that mistake again. I'm also not afraid of criticism. At the end of the day criticism is there to help you improve, and getting offended or annoyed by it doesn't help me or you. While self criticism is important (i'll always be my biggest critic), i'm also always trying to keep up to date with class changes and information - be that on the paladin discord, youtube, streams or icy veins. I'm also OCD in that i'll try to prepare as much as possible for fights (youtube, streams, discords). I don't slack, and I put in effort for the entire duration of the raid. (which obviously everyone should do).
My reason for applying, is that I would like to join a guild that has a good environment, but can also progress at a good pace while not pushing extended hours. Santa Maria looks to be an efficient raiding guild, and I would like to be a part of that. Organisation is something I value heavily.

Why are you leaving your current/last guild?: My previous guild was <Laid Back>. Simply, my university schedule changed shortly before the year commenced and I could not commit to 1 of the 2 days that they raided. I also had issues with how the leadership operated. Unfortunately good ideas and suggestions put forwards by raiders were almost always instantly shut down/swept to the side, and I left this hindered progression and efficiency within the raiding environment, as well as gave people the impression that they 'shouldnt bother suggesting ideas'.
Why do you want to join Santa Maria?: Just to add on to what I mentioned earlier in my reason for applying - I would like to join a time efficient guild that takes time to create an organised raid, as well as an enjoyable raiding atmosphere. I also like that on the guild information page, peoples ideas are appreciated when it comes to boss tactics and ideas, which a major issue i had with my previous guild.
What is your raiding experience this expansion?: 2/8M with attempts on Zek voz. Unfortunately due to my schedule at uni changing (as previously mentioned) I had to step down from my previous guild. While I did try finding another (I was approached by Sham early on), I found that I wasnt able to easily commit to a guild and decided to just focus on my studies until December (next Tuesday I finish for the semester), as I didn't want to 'half ass' with a guild. I wanted to give the most amount of effort as possible. I now have the time to raid again.
When did you start playing WoW?: My previous raid experience started in WotLK. I'd played since the start of BC, but that was in a casual capacity. Start of WotLK, i began raiding, clearing all content while it was still current, up to ICC Heroic with multiple guilds. I played Cataclysm with the guild <One> which is an Australian guild (im originally from Australia so all wotlk and BC raiding was in aus, but live in England now) as a disc priest, clearing all content up until Ragnaros in firelands, where i stopped playing for a decent chunk of time.
Do you have a reliable PC & connection?: I have a fairly recent PC that is more than reliable. [6700k, GTX 1080, 16GB Memory]. My internet connection is also very reliable and have had no network connection issues in years http://www.speedtest.net/result/7862447974.png
Are you comfortable speaking on Discord?: Very, I have absolutely no issues with communication.
Do you know anyone here who can vouch for you?: Unfortunately not.
Anything you would like to add?: Just wanted to say thanks for reading through my app. I put in 110% wherever possible and hope you don't mind Australian accents!
