Character Information: NIcksdh - Twisting Nether

Describe your choice of talents and why you've chosen them: This is a hard question to answer in a short message. I choose my talents based on 3 things. The fight - what is required ST or AOE etc, Sims, I also look at logs a lot and streams to see if anything new is being used and why it is being used. i will not just blindly follow someone without knowing why they use it. Example using a certain trinket to a talent or trait.

How do you prioritize your stats and why? Sims Generally. I sim everything even if it isn't "BIS" due to sockets being over powering.

Where do you acquire knowledge about your Class? Again, streams SIMs, Discord, and Logs mainly. Please note i look into logs i don't just look at the front page. I enjoy looking through and finding things some people may miss.

Paste a your UI via [img]LINK[/img] IN COMBAT
(Ensure that all Key Bindings are visible)

What state is the state of your Heart of Azeroth? Level 65.

Link to your raid logs using using [url]LINK[/url].: ... er/nicksdh
Please note i tanked Org boss and thats probably why the log is so low. I am happy to OS tank in raid or dungs - Quite enjoy the change from time to time.

Raiding History: Guldan CE, Helya CE, Argus CE, Ghuun CE, Jaina CE. I think it would be best if we get the stage of having a conversation over discord for me to explain it a little clearer and the struggles of getting these CEs.

Describe your previous/current raiding experience: Raid team disbanded, its been a struggle throughout the tier with having a stable team but. Shit happens i guess.

Tell us about your previous guilds and your reasons for leaving them: Dark Intent - I left due to officer team falling apart.
Summon Inc - Same reason
Moved to Twisting Nether with friends and Created Disco Muffins. We managed to form a guild and get CE in Antorus. We went onto getting Ghuun CE then had a mass game quit once we killed it due to people not enjoying the game anymore. We were not able to come back from it so we went to seperate guilds to continue progressing. We are still in touch and i play with them most days.
Archaic Order - Officers disbanded so the raid team disbanded. Not sure on reason.

More Information:

Can you meet our raid schedule of Wed/Thur/Mon 21:00 to 00:00 server time with at least 90% attendance? Of course.

We also raid on Sunday at the start of a new raiding tier. Are you aware of this? I am happy to put in an extra day at the start of the tier.

Are you able to Listen and Speak on Teamspeak? Of course.

What qualities do you bring to a Raid? A debuff.... Great! .. i am a positive person, i do what i can to best myself for the fights i come to and looking at logs is fun for me so if people ever want to just look through and check certain stuff im happy to look also.

How comfortable are you playing your offspecs? Yes i tank in Dungs and heroics or mythics if required. I prefer dps of course but i am not shy of tanking. i keep my tanking gear as best as i can throughout the tiers.

How do you feel about progression raiding? Love it, my main aim is to clear the raid asap but i am also not a quitter when it comes to 300-500 wipes. Its always a good feeling downing that dreaded boss we've been trying so hard to kill.

Where did you hear about Curse of Years and do you know anyone in the guild? a friend Boomdizzle (Played with for years said about applying as you approached him on Wowprogress to apply. This being said it doesn't matter if only 1 gets in we are going are own ways anyway. Us both getting in is only a bonus.

What encouraged you to apply to Curse of Years? I spoke to Gnarl to make sure you are still recruiting a DH as it is a hard spot to fill and he encouraged me to apply.

Do you play outside of raid? Yeah i try to push keys and have fun with some friends that ive played with for years.

Is there anything else you'd like to add to your application? i am not very good at making applications but i am comfortable to come and have a chat with you if you have any further questions. I have looked into your guild through logs etc and it is certainly somewhere i'd be keen to join and progress with.

Tell us a joke: I thought i already linked you my logs? Should be laughable enough. :) Look forward to hearing from you.
