Zekhar/Ilythia - Resto/Ele shaman or Vengence DH/Havoc

If you wish to apply to us, this is the place for you!

Your Name, Age, Gender and Location:
Mathias(Math), 28, I self identify as an apachehelicopter [male], Denmark

Tell us a little bit about yourself (non-WoW related Interests, Hobbies etc)
I do drugs to pass the time and i fucking love my dog so fairly boring. I play an unhealth amount of wow and games

Character Information:
I'm unsure of this as you've posted for a resto shaman/Ele which i presume you'd like me to join on. If possible however i would like to join on my Dh as a tank and come shadowlands switch to my DK as they seem absurdly broken, even with alpha being alpha

All that said, i would join you guys on my shaman as resto as that seems most optimal overall

Dh link: ... am/ilythia


Describe your choice of talents and why you've chosen them:
Lvl 15 row: Unleash Life. Good poke healing, with added benefit to the first heal after cast. Potent as fuck with chainheal spam. The other 2 choices doesn't compare in a raid setting.
lvl 30: Double riptide for all the hots and 2x cloudburst totem is too good to pass up
lvl 45: Spirit wolf cause dmg reduction and movement can always come in handy while the other 2 choices are niche at best
lvl 60: I tend to rotate them based on encounter. Stacked up with ticking dmg like maut or hivemind? Earthwall totem. A tactic or dangerous AOE ability that has the potential to 1 shot someone or we just want to save a cr? Ankh totem
lvl 75: Situational. If windrush isn't needed, the extra spiritwalkers grace really helps against shamans biggest weakness: Healing while moving. I never pick nature's guardian, the other 2 choices prevail each time.
lvl 90: Cloudburst. Broken as shit talent, esp with resto shaman mastery in mind
lvl 100: High tide wins overall, well spring can be a decent alternative if chain heal can't be used propperly. Wellspring also lines up with cloudburst so spread out and in need of some aoe healing? Win. Ascendance sucks as the other 2 choices outshine it by far. If an extra cd is needed at one point that's where ascendance should shine, but i've yet to encounter this. Tested it out on hivemind but it's so underwhelming

How do you prioritize your stats and why?
Crit gives me more mana regen, higher heals (obv) and in general utilises my toolkit to the best of it's ability (cloudburst, chain heal, healing rain). Vers is % stats, what's not to like? Mastery is a close second on progression as when people drops low it truely shines, which means valuetown
so a quick sum up: Crit > Vers => Mastery > haste

Where do you acquire knowledge about your Class?
Wowhead, Class discord, Icy-veins(yes i know) but most importently i try the shit out i see and gauge how well it does for me as a player. I'm never gonna stop experimenting cause that's what drives me in this game. The next little thing that might change stuff for me, like DH tanking come 8.3

Paste a your UI via [img]LINK[/img] IN COMBAT
(Ensure that all Key Bindings are visible) (accidently deleted my post once so hope this is okay)

What state is the state of your Heart of Azeroth? 85 on both, i have all essences except for blood of the enemy because i hate bg's and luckly it's quite shit for both my specs, with the exception of Ele where in m+ it can be good on teeming weeks. I'm an achiever but i'm a terrible pvp'er

Link to your raid logs using using [url]LINK[/url].:
I don't have any logs for my Dh that's worth anything so i'll link my shamans from my prev raid: ... 3017200000 Take your pick! 22nd of march is the last time we raided and my most "up to date" log i suppose

Raiding History:

Describe your previous/current raiding experience:
Been raiding since TBC althrough my shaman was enha with daggers so you can imagine how that went. I Started raiding heroic and above in WOTLK, gaining server 2nd Yogg-Saron kill, 45 attmpts 25 man trial and LK heroic 25 man kill.
Cata i killed all on heroic, althrough i didn't kill Bastion twilight while it was current. Happend in 4.2.
Mop i got 2 server firsts with Ra-den and Garrosh heroic and later mythic. Best expansion raid wise and class wise. #bring back symbiosis.
WoD didn't kill blackhand while he was current, had some roster issues which sadly involved a deaf paladin. Yes that made it quite tricky and it's another story i'll tell in time. Archy boy i tanked on my blood dk since our tank quit during progress and since that i tanked for my guild.

Got up to Cutting edge Gul'dan before my guild at the time disbanded due to long standing roster issues among other things. Drama and all the good that comes with it when trying. We got to maiden in Tomb when it all colapsed. After trying fo so long to make shit work for everyone it took quite a tool on me and my fellow officers so i just played casually with some mythic on the side every now and then. While still playing the heroic versions, BFA has been the only expansion where i've had a break completly. DIdn't play for a month during BfDA, only joined back when essences were on the horizen even if some classes still feel hollow from their legion counterpart.

Tell us about your previous guilds and your reasons for leaving them:
Quick run down because i've already filled this wall of text enough: Vex Thal from WOTLK to mid Mop 5.2. Left because guild disbanded after a guild meet up went terrible wrong. From what i know it was 2 people who coudn't cope, GM and officer. This split the guild in half and left a sour taste at each raid and yeah you can extrapolate from there.
Joined Aquila in 5.2 and been there since legion. Most of my tunes i play are still in the guild but it's a shell of it's former self sadly. Listed above why i stopped raiding in Aquila.
Recently joined Fuming after my long break because they seemed competent. Relatively new, i gave them a shot but it turned out most as many guilds these days a lack of signups and general lack of leadership has halted progress to the point where raids happen, maybe.

More Information:

Can you meet our raid schedule of Wed/Thur/Mon 21:00 to 00:00 server time with at least 90% attendance?
Only if i get chocolate chip cookies from your resident mage (hoping you have one)
We also raid on Sunday at the start of a new raiding tier. Are you aware of this?
Fine by me, outside of exceptional cirumstances i can pretty much raid every day of the week
Are you able to Listen and Speak on Teamspeak?
Yes although if you get to know me you might want me to shut up more then wanting me to speak
What qualities do you bring to a Raid?
Bad jokes, Terrible healing and an excellent mixtape consisting of helicopter sounds. Jokes aside i love looking at tactics and seeing what i can find from a prev pull that we might've missed. To me mythic raiding is having fun with peps while progressing. You'll find i do not look at meters but rather at doing whatever it takes to kill a boss. Let it be re-kills or progress, i'll get the job done with as few mistakes as possible while learning
How comfortable are you playing your offspecs?
Played Ele since TBC besides resto and played it for a while when we were overloaded with healers. I can play it within 90% of my abilitys as resto
How do you feel about progression raiding?
After a few months now if not a year of heroic i'm ready to come back and push. New bosses, exciting new mechanics and how to bend them to my will is what i live for
Where did you hear about Curse of Years and do you know anyone in the guild?
Wowprogress and never heard of you before. Looked at your raiding time and progress / what you were looking for. Seemed like a fit to me, i prefer the 21:00-00:00 raid times and very few guilds do that these days
What encouraged you to apply to Curse of Years?
As stated above, seemed like a fit for both parties. Might as well see what you're capable off and perhaps i can fill out a niche you don't have yet (spamming of chain heal)
Do you play outside of raid?
Far. Too. Much.
Is there anything else you'd like to add to your application?
Think i've said enough already, wall-o-text aren't fun to read but i guess i might as well be honest up front. Perhaps as a last note thank you for reading it all. Forgive me for any gramma mistakes along the way
Tell us a joke:
I hate gnomes with a passion. No joke or punchline, just thought you'd like to know

Edit: forgot to add a talent name at lvl 15

Apologies for this taking so long and your app going forgotten, I'd like to blame N'zoth progression and kill for stealing our focus but this still shouldn't have happened.

I copied your app over to our internal forums for discussion.

Since it's been a few weeks and you've listed two chars you'd be open to play, I will say it's most likely we'd need you on a the shaman. Are you still open to play this class, with emphasis on ele and resto offspec?

Application Declined.
Once again, sorry for the delay, but I'm afraid your current raid experience is slightly behind for what we're looking for. Best of luck finding a guild that suits you, and thanks for putting in the effort of applying.

If things change, feel free to reapply, you never know how things look at your or our end as Shadowlands approach

Thanks for the reply. Best of luck with the future and please forgive most of my shitty jokes in the app, it's a disease
