Character name: Velaxi
Why should we choose you and what is your reason for applying?:
Age: 27I consider myself a competent player with great encounter awareness and that cares more about killing the boss/playing as a group than padding or getting high parses. I can accomplish specifically given tasks with ease when required and be vocal if something unexpected happens. I also do my research on every fight and know what I should be doing by default if not given a specific task. I don't need to be micromanaged.
Battle tag: Trivorx#2183
Raid Role (healer/DPS/tank): DPS

Most notable alt (link armory): My only alt is a 365 rogue that I leveled to progress on Zul. I didn't bother leveling other alts because of the neck reputation grind and general downgrade of BFA gameplay vs Legion (I played 6 classes up to Heroic level), but if needed and with the recent catchup mechanics I can get my mage or monk prepared for next raid(maybe other classes too).
Why are you leaving your current/last guild?: My current raiding group has fallen apart during Christmas, with 3 leadership positions having left. Ever since BFA released we have slowly been bleeding core players that I've grown accustomed wit ever since I joined the group back in ToS, but this past month has seen an unprecedent amount of burnout and apathy towards the game, and I can't continue trying to raid lead when people just aren't that interested.
Why do you want to join Santa Maria?: Even with BFA's failings, my enjoyment of raiding has never waned. I want a solid group of focused people that enjoy playing together as a group to kill high difficulty PvE encounters.
What is your raiding experience this expansion?: I have joined my current raiding group late into ToS, back when it was Predication. During the end of Antorus, our previous GM suddenly kicked us out of the discord and removed all our sheets, saying that he wants to bring over some friends to be more of a social guild. We then formed Valued the same night, recleared Antorus for our 600th position, and went into BFA slowly making progress to 500.
When did you start playing WoW?: August 2006, Vanilla. I started my raiding career in Wotlk with a group of friends which later disbanded in Firelands Cata patch. I then took a break and didn't play for the rest of Cata, MOP, or WOD. I came back at the start of legion, got into a friends' social raiding guild, but I wanted a bit more focus and skill during raids, so I jumped to Kazzak and that's where I joined Predication. The rest can be seen in the "raiding experience" part.
Do you have a reliable PC & connection?: Yes, i5 4690k OCed, GTX1070, Gigabit fiber internet.
Are you comfortable speaking on Discord?: Yes
Do you know anyone here who can vouch for you?: No.
Anything you would like to add?: For logs, please check my 8.0 logs. I played affliction instead of demo on some fights in 8.1 mostly because I had to raid lead as well, so I chose something I was used to so I could focus on raid leading. I have no problems with demo now that I don't have to lead anymore. Also, I am aware I'm a bit behind with neck levels since I stopped any AP activity beyond weekly M+10 when I got the defensive traits on all 3 pieces. I restarted grinding AP stuff when they mentioned that AK would be locked until the new raid opens. I intend to be at an acceptable level when the raid hits.
