Your Name, Age, Gender and Location:
Kris O. Ekström, 33 winters, male, Sweden.

Tell us a little bit about yourself (non-WoW related Interests, Hobbies etc)
Down to earth kinda guy. Very open minded, social and honest. Helpful and a team player, I believe that's the key to success. Loyal grinder, always online doing something. Work 2 days a week as a sales coach. I workout 1-3 times a week. Travel, explore, adventures, adrenaline and WoW are my biggest passions. Also riding longboard downhill during summer.

Character Information:

Armory Link:
Main : ... /Teztament
Alt : ... l/Kelldhar


Describe your choice of talents and why you've chosen them:
Blind Fury / Immolation Aura / Trail of Ruin (Fel Barrage on bosses like Oppulence) / Netherwalk / First Blood / Master of the Glaive / Demonic. This is the typical Demonic build which I prefer, might change a few talents when in M+ but other than that this is the way to go for maximum damage output unless you wanna play Felblade Momentum build which I think is rather boring. Also both specs are more or less pair with each other so I'd say it's a matter of taste.

I like this spec since it gives you long Metas in combination with Eye Beam and is very strong and fun in general. Versatile, mobile and high damage both single target and AoE.

How do you prioritize your stats and why?
Vers > Crit = Haste > Agility > Mastery
Well as many other classes DH Havoc heavily relies on primary stats. However I do my own stat weights when I get new pieces and I sim every part to see if it's an upgrade before I change anything in my gear.

Where do you acquire knowledge about your Class?
Youtube, forums, friends in high end guilds and other things like discord.

What state is the state of your Heart of Azeroth?
Proberly 40 today, as this use to be an alt I'm a little behind compared to my former main.

Raiding History:

Describe your previous/current raiding experience:

Classic World of Warcraft :

Raided MC/BWL/AQ20/AQ40 with <Curse> on Stormscale / Horde as Fury. they then fell apart and leaders + other good players formed new guilds (Rapid Eye Movement, Insert Coin) and I took a break as my motivation died with the guild split. Sadly I missed out on Naxx.

The Burning Crusade :

Did comeback just before release, played almost the entire expansion. Raided on Stormscale / Horde with <nam> as Fury. Did full clears to SWP release. Did Lady Vashj pre-nerf, Kael'thas Sunstrider pre-nerf, Illidan Stormrage pre-nerf. I then took a break as I had a lot going on in school that I had to put all my focus on which lead to the miss of SWP and the sacrifice of WoW and raiding.

Wrath of the Lich King :

Came back around Trial of the Crusader, this time I went Chromaggus / Alliance to join some friends and their guild. We did all bosses Heroic except Anub'arak who actually caused a guild split due to the lack of interest of wiping more and not seeing any progress leaders decided to join forces with another top guild on the server at that time and our guild <First Cohort> died.

I then migrated with some of my friends + other players to a dead realm (Lightning's Blade) and formed a guild called <Minority> where we did Ulduar full clear and even got a late server first on the Yogg 0 keepers. We then ventured into ICC where we cleared everything up to LK25HC. Sadly we never got him down and at the same time as this progress was at hand I got a new job in another country which was an exclusive offer so then again I had to sacrifice pixels for real life and so I did.

Cataclysm :

Came back very late, around DS release where I joined with a guild on Xavius / Horde called <No Progress> we progressed the entire tier and cleared it. Did a late clear in FL25HC aswell but not during the release.

Mists of Pandaria :

I played the beginning of MoP but was so bored of the tier that I decided to PvP instead to try reach some of my goals. I formed a RBG team with some real veterans I knew and in Season 13 we did 2485 Rating and got ourselves the Rank 14 aka "High Warlord" title. This was around the end of Throne of Thunder and the release of Siege of Orgrimmar. I thought SoO looked awesome and I wanted to PvE again. After being burned out on the PvP front I migrated to Shattered Hand / Horde and joined <Grimsoul> a world 100 guild at that time. We progressed and cleared the entire tier from release until end and announcement of Draenor.

Warlords of Draenor :

Did not play much here, only PvP. Was very focused at my real life and my new job so had no time to play only casual. Did 2500 in 3s as Turbocleave. Joined <Fatalis> 3 month's before Legion and cleared the current content, just to get it done nothing special (nor was it Cutting Edge).

Legion :

This expansion was my baby, I played for about 8 hours a day the first year. Cleared all raids on Mythic with Cutting Edge progress. World ranks from 150-300 on the boss kills. Started in <Fatalis> on Alliance did up to 2/3 ToV Mythic with them when I decided to go Horde. Played with <Repose> to Gul'dan Mythic left them there cuz it was a complete disaster and very toxic players. Decided to join a 2 day raiding guild and got a offer from <Essence> one of the top 2 day raiding guilds at that time. Played with them until guild split which was around 6 bosses into ToS Mythic. After guild split I joined up with <UnknownError> and cleared ToS but left shortly after due to some RL problems (no internet for about 2½ weeks). Got booted from the raiding team as I was away, joined <Equity> when I came back and played with them until 7/11 Antorus where I just decided to take a longer break... Came back 1½ month before BFA release, got "Cutting Edge" Argus Mythic from the guild <Equity> I was randomly on one night and they asked if I could come DPS and I said sure, got myself "Titanslayer" title and finished the long term goal of getting ALL Cutting Edge achivements for Legion.

Was not planning to play BFA at all but I bought a copy just to level and try it out, very casually. Ended up joining a promising guild, farmed for Uldir and did 3/8 Mythic together but the guild split shortly after due to EXTREME toxic leadership. Then joined SPARKS which was formed from some remaining players and leaders. Played up until Fetid with them but left them shortly after due to another toxic environment and also very slacky attitude towards raiding. Some people did not even show up during raid days leaving 17-18 people hanging and waiting.

Joined NeiGjengen which is a Norwegian guild that consists of 20+ RL friends raiding together. Played with them from Fetid and onwards. We cleared Uldir 8/8 with a Cutting Edge rank of World 504. All this was done on my Warrior which has been my main up until BoD where I have now switched to DH.

Tell us about your previous guilds and your reasons for leaving them:
Well I'll tell you what's relevant. I mean I've played this game since early Classic. On and off going from hardcore raiding to semi-core and casual depending on where I was in life and how much time I had to spend on this passion. Last 3 years I've been raiding on Semi-core level. From the end of Draenor up until now. So the road has been long and bumpy at times. Going through guild splits and changing faction etc etc.

Anyways, I will now break down my current situation. As I played T22 as Warrior with my current guild I grew very bored of War when they removed the potential of the Arms spec (Executioner's Precision azerite trait). I tried Fury a bit but thought BFA Fury just bored me out. We had a very long break during christmas as well and this is where I started playing my DH more. I now changed main and am playing DH more serious now and will main it for the coming future.

Now, my current guild master promised me a spot as DH. We only had 2 at that time, me and another guy who was already raider rank. I got trial as it was a new class for me. Anyways, reset day happens and Mythic BoD is released. Now when I checked sign ups, we are now 4 Demon Hunters. Me the raiding guy, another "Trial" DH and from out of the blue one Officer had switched from Main Tank to Demon Hunter DPS instead and due to that, he got my spot as he is officer and I am "Trial". In other words they pulled a switch on me sat me as "standby" even tho I was on pair if not better than the current one also way more mechanically anticipated.

This is not the first time this is happening to people within the guild. They always and will always prioritize one of their RL friends over an outsider in the guild. They are after all 20 RL friends playing together and if all there they will have 100% spot whilst we others get to be "standby". Also it's a 30 man roster which is extremely active. Another thing that I just can't stand anymore is the loudness and complete autism circus going on during raids. We talking 16-19 real life friends joking over each other and screaming and the leader just being to kind and "weak" to actually calm them down which is so annoying as it completely destroys your concentration and focus. This is not working out for me therefor I am now looking for a new home to settle down in but this time as DH.

More Information:

Can you meet our raid schedule of Wed/Thur/Mon 21:00 to 00:00 server time with at least 90% attendance?
Yes raiding is set in stone for me, I rarely miss raids. May it be sickness or a funeral that would keep me away from downing bosses.

We also raid on Sunday at the start of a new raiding tier. Are you aware of this?
Sounds perfect, more progress!

Are you able to Listen and Speak on Teamspeak?
Yes sir!

What qualities do you bring to a Raid?
Knowledge, experience, loyalty, a good sense of humor and a lot of positive energy.

How comfortable are you playing your offspecs?
I will start tanking for M+ but that's about it. I have no knowledge of Vengeance yet.

How do you feel about progression raiding?
Love it! Come 100% prepped for the hours we have set for raiding, always!

Where did you hear about Curse of Years and do you know anyone in the guild?
Funny story as you guys tried recruiting my Warrior in the beginning of Uldir. So I thought I'd check for a new guild on WP for my DH and that's how I found you guys as I remembered the name (since I thought it sounded cool).

What encouraged you to apply to Curse of Years?
Mostly since you reached out to me before but also because I think I can be a good asset to your roster also because I think I would fit in well with your mentality.

Do you play outside of raid?
I play around 5-12 hours a day. M+, daylie WQ Ritual (got x2 accounts so do things on main and alt at the same time).

Is there anything else you'd like to add to your application?
Just hope you enjoyed my application as much as I did making it and that I get a chance in the lime light to prove my worth!

Tell us a joke:
I was about to propose to my girlfriend when my roommate Joseph barged into the room out of nowhere, tripped, and fell over, breaking a glass table with his face. Totally ruined the mood. Now I don't know Joseph THAT well, don't even remember where he was from, but let's say I put my plans on hold to help him through his injuries.

Joseph had gotten a big glass shard in his eye, making him completely blind in that eye. He was walking around with one of those big cotton pads on his eye for a couple of months. Then suddenly, he disappeared, along with my girlfriend.

Apparently they'd bonded during the time after his injuries, and eloped together, leaving me behind without as much as a note. I tried to track them down, but never could.

In conclusion, if it hadn't been for Joe with his cotton eye, I'd have been married a long time ago. Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from, cotton eye Joe?
