General:

Your Name, Age, Gender and Location:
My name is Chris, I'm a 26 year old male living in Norway.

Tell us a little bit about yourself (non-WoW related Interests, Hobbies etc)
I love my 2 cats, atm im studying to become a logistics expert twice a week.
Other than that i pretty much sit on my computer all day.

Character Information:

Armory Link:
https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/eu/silvermoon/Koll%C3%AC
In case i dont have benthic equipped from doing world content, i do have benthic i use in Nazjatar and EP.

Battletag:
Tylarr#2677

Describe your choice of talents and why you've chosen them:
My talents vary on the fight.
I pick Icefury on the second last row on single target fights.
I pick Primal Elementalist on multi target fight, because of high uptime on Flame Shock which gives me no time to weave Icefury between Lava Surges.
On high movement fights i also pick Wind Rush Totem for utility, otherwise i run with Nature's Guardian to save myself as best I can since shamans have poor survivability.

How do you prioritize your stats and why?
I sim myself regularly, but the general idea is vers>=crit>haste>int>mastery
Because we have so many Lava Surges, which are guaranteed to crit we want vers to boost this base dmg.
Reason we want crit over haste is because of Lava Shock ticks, Earth Shock and Lightning Bolt overloads.
Since we get overloads and our Lava Surges are instant we dont need that much haste.
Mastery is only better than the other stats if its ridiculously oversized, i.e 400 mastery > 250 haste/vers/crit

Where do you acquire knowledge about your Class?
Simming myself, reading the shaman discord. Talking with other elemental shamans and their experiencing, and in general just testing stuff.

I havent attended a raid after 25th of august because the guild master wanted to try out new trials and i volunteered to sit since he also played elemental.
Once these trials were tested the guild master decided to not continue guild raids.

Raiding History:
Started raiding during Karazhan as enhancement shaman, i was pretty pleb back then. Ended up just starting Black Temple when WotLK came out.
Slowly got more and more into raiding starting in Naxxramas (wotlk), went pretty serious during Ulduar. Eventually quit real life and just sat playing WoW.
Cleared icc25man hc, got Invincible's Reins pretty early (18/7/10). In the end of wotlk when Ruby Sanctum came, a small grp of us in the guild i was in at the time (Ronin on Kor'gall) wanted to tryhard abit.
We got [A tribute to Dedicate Insanity] and [Herald of the Titans] when it still was relevant.
My best raiding achievement before trialing for Inner Sanctum was world 13th Halion 10man HC while i was in Ronin.
In cataclysm i raid on a semi hardcore level, clearing all content (except Sinestra), slowly climbing the leaderboards (probably around 200 or so at the time).
Then at the end of cataclysm i was offered a trial through a friend in Inner Sanctum.
Heres where my raiding sort of crashed for a while, i got a girlfriend and quit the game for a long time.
I start playing casual during Siege of Orgrimmar, got Ahead of the curve with a guild i cant remember.
During draenor im still raiding casually, trying to get more into it. Now in legion i wanted to get properly into it again, managed to get Cutting edge in EN and Cutting edge Helya.
Did a few bosses on mythic in nighthold. Then i randomly got benched for several weeks straight because we had too many healers, and i had a hard time finding another guild to raid with since i was missing most of WoD experience.
Because of this, I decided to focus on real life for a bit, with working, had a surgery, and wanted to sort stuff out.
I didnt raid any of Tomb of Sargeras at all when it was current.
And in antorus i started to get a lucky break, I got into raiding again as enhancement, we cleared up to Varimathras on mythic, before i had to step away from raiding for real life issues i would like to keep private.
In bfa, i got to get back into raiding with the guild (Judge on silvermoon) i was with in the end of legion, they helped me get some progress on my sheets after having next to non the prev tiers. Which then made me able to join a higher ranked guild (Raze at the time) to fill the raiding need i have.
I wasnt happy with the social aspect of our raids towards the end of Jaina progression, the guild filled with cliques and u felt alone.
I then applied to and got accepted to Halo on Silvermoon since this is where all my friends were that i made from raiding with Inner Sanctum.
And now im at a point where i want to raid still but the guild has decided not to continue and is slowly disbanding.
All the raiding is done on my shaman, under various character names but only on this character.
Also did some alt raiding as warrior during wotlk, boomkin during cataclysm, and as Demon hunter in legion and bfa.

Describe your previous/current raiding experience:
I've raided as enhancement in TBC.
As resto from WotLK until Antorus.
As enhancement in Antorus.
And currently as Elemental since BfA release.

Tell us about your previous guilds and your reasons for leaving them:
I dont recall the guild names from TBC.
And in WotLK i was mostly in a guild called Ronin on Kor'gall.
Start of Cataclysm i was still in Ronin, which i dont remember why i left at the time.
I then joined Barbarians on Kilrogg, which i believe stopped raiding after my trial was finished.
I joined Inner Sanctum on Silvermoon in the later stage of Cataclysm.
Reason i didn't keep playing in Inner Sanctum was because I got blind with love and my girlfriend at the time said I had to quit playing, so I did... At the time Rm was the Guild Master and he told me if the grass wasn't greener on the other side I could come back and get a new trial, but when i eventually returned he had quit the game, along with other officers.
Ever since then I've been trying to get properly back in the raiding scene, which i would say i started doing now until our guild master pmd us on disc.
I was also in Raze on Alonsus in the beginning of BoD.
And joined Halo, which im currently in, on jaina.


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 I can. These times fit me perfectly since the study im taking ends just before 20:00 server time. And ive had 100% attendance since BoD (until the trials were tested after our Za'qul kill)

We also raid on Sunday at the start of a new raiding tier. Are you aware of this?
I wouldnt mind even if it was 7 days a week, so yes im aware.

Are you able to Listen and Speak on Teamspeak?
Yes and yes.

What qualities do you bring to a Raid?
The strengths of shaman is we can provide instant burst when needed by setting up maelstrom and aligning CDs.
We bring alot of utility that is beneficial to alot of raiders.

If someones needed for a task and im able to take care of it i dont mind volunteering.
For example, ive been on interrupt duty on basiclly every fight where its needed. On jaina, on grong, on orgozoa.
Also done CC where needed, such as caster adds on Zek'voz.

I dont do my class halfassed, i keep myself up to date and simmed.
If im not gonna do it properly i might aswell not do it at all.
I strive to be the best i can and punish myself for fucking up.

How comfortable are you playing your offspecs?
I've played enhancement probably around 2 years
I've played restoration about 11 years.
I don't have either of them set up at the moment though as i haven't been needed to.

How do you feel about progression raiding?
The number one reason i'm playing this game byyyyyy faaaaaar.

Where did you hear about Curse of Years and do you know anyone in the guild?
Nagassh PM'd me on wowprogress after i announced on wowprogress i was looking for a guild.

What encouraged you to apply to Curse of Years?
The raid hours, and the fact that you have 4 day raids at start of progression.

Do you play outside of raid?
Yes, I currently have 100 days played current level.

Is there anything else you'd like to add to your application?
Hope to hear back from you soon, and I'm ready to transfer whenever.

EDIT:
I forgot to add our guild master cancelled progress to focus on Classic.
This has caused about half the raid team to quit, and other half joined him in Classic.

Tell us a joke:
Yo mama so fat, when i shadowstepped her i got a loading screen.
