Character name: ed-
Why should we choose you and what is your reason for applying?:
Age: 24I never had more urgency to raid than now, I'm extremely stable in regards to attendance and I feel invested once I'm on the right path. I don't expect to get carried, I always prefer carrying my own weight. I learn and study the classes that I play at their maximum capacity, I SIM my gear(I use multiple runs, run for 1 target, for 2 targets, 3 targets and lastly for 4 targets). Furthermore I use Warcraftlogs to see how well the talents/trinkets, azerite pieces are performing for a given boss. And lastly I watch relevant streamers to my class from top guilds because I'm bored. I play my offspecs on par with my main spec. Although I took a 28month break from WoW I learned them again incredibly fast.

I didn't play WoW for 28 months so those are the last raiding logs I'm able to provide.

Why are you leaving your current/last guild?: I quit WoW purely because I hated the gameplay design in Legion, so I played it only 4 weeks upon launch, the gameplay design wasn't so alt friendly at that time and also I wasn't a fan of the legendary acquisition system at all. Everyone in the guild was putting in the hours playing 10~14 hours a day and those who didn't get a legendary or got a bad legendary were benched (rightfully so).
Why do you want to join Santa Maria?: I'm applying because I think this can be a right guild for me. Today I watched your hunter's stream and the atmosphere looks good.
What is your raiding experience this expansion?: Playing only 2 and a half weeks into the expo and not having any friends in game to rely on, only cleared HC uldir nothing else, i watch a lot of streamers from top guilds so i know majority of the mythic tactics, if you plan on putting me in raid I will need to watch vids to make sure I don't miss anything.
When did you start playing WoW?: Started playing the game some time in early 2007. In WoD I progressed through HFC with a guild named Rat Pack ended up killing archi around 600 world rank, a few months after that AwoL(100~200rank range guild) recruited me which at that time were the best players on the server, so I joined them mid april and raided with them until end of September 2016 when I decided to quit. Also I raided in MoP where I cleared heroic/mythic SoO by pugging. And lastly I cleared Dragon soul normal mode only, Wotlk did normal mode ICC only, and Kara/gruul t4tier in TBC only.
Do you have a reliable PC & connection?: yes 45~50latency and 25~144 fps in raid depending on boss mechanics and blizzard(indie company) optimization
Are you comfortable speaking on Discord?: Yes
Do you know anyone here who can vouch for you?: nah
Anything you would like to add?: Yes, although I took a 28 month break from WoW I'm rapidly learning stuff and I'm invested into the game. During legion I didn't watch raiding at all, but once BFA launched I watched the mythic race for Ghuun and wanted to return to the game badly, also I started to watch streams daily for months before I decided to return to WoW. I returned to WoW 2 and a half weeks ago and i'm currently revered with magni(Azeroth rep), currently lvl 36 on my neck and low ilvl of 374. And yes I am awere that I'm behind but in the coming weeks I'm planning to get 380ilvl ( possibly more if theres an open spot for raiding and You decide to give me a trial). With that in mind, I won't be much behind for dazar'alor heroic raid, and after the first week and second week of heroic I should be on par with the other raiders in your guild. (of course 7 bonus roll tokens will help a lot, I currently have 7 saved up). I won't be expecting a free dinner steak, I like to work for things. In the end if you decide to give me a trial, I will spend playin' 8~12 hours daily so I can catch up with others and be on the same playing field. And I almost forgot I don't think You guys require an alt but I'm willing to roll one and i'm flexible as long as it is a ranged caster (mage, boomie, spriest, ele sham pref). I learn and study the classes that I play at their maximum capacity so deciding which gem or enchant to put on my gear isn't diffuclt for me. Of course when I have slight dilemma I SIM my gear(I use multiple runs, run for 1 target, for 2 targets, 3 targets and lastly for 4 targets). Furthermore I use Warcraftlogs to see how well the talents/trinkets,azerite pieces are performing for a given boss. And lastly I watch relevant streamers to my class from top guilds because I'm bored.
