Raiding history - Explain what raids you have completed and when
I started raiding at the beginning of Legion during Emerald Nightmare with the Guild Voodoo on Bronzebeard where we cleared Heroic in a timely manner, unfortunately, the guild disbanded shortly after due to conflicts with raiders wanting to progress to Mythic and GM/Raid leader not wanting to commit.
A few of us joined Chatter bait on Bronzebeard and continued to progress through mythic where we finished 5/7M emerald nightmare. during Trial of valor, a number of members quit/stopped raiding when Nighthold came around the guild merged with The Scholars of Light Bronzebeard we managed to get the majority of server first Mythic Kills which was a testament to our Raid Leader and our officer team
At the end of Nighthold the guild went into Tomb of Sargeras confident and ready to rock. Unfortunately, we fell short off what we had hoped to achieve and ended up finishing server 2nd. a number of issues were brought to the attention of the GM/Raid leader and voiced our concerns of taking undergeared players or 19 manning progress fights on a consistent basis or starting raids 30 minutes after they should have.
I had also found it increasingly difficult to commit to raiding times due to SOL being a late night guild starting at 9pm GMT and finishing at 11.30GMT (I am a Teacher and the late finish was painful) I had started to search for a new guild that raided earlier and found Foundation it was a 2 night a week mythic focused raiding guild on Magtheridon which catered for my needs at the time I joined them during Antorus and we managed to clear 10/11M missing out on Argus by 9%.
At the start of BFA the guild re-organised and created a 3 night a week heavily focused progression team and a 2 night a week slower progression team I joined the 2 night team due to work commitments.
as a team we finished Uldir 7/9Mythic and we were extremely happy with our achievement.
during Battle for dazar'alor we started the tier of extremely well going 3/9M quite quickly, unfortunately, we became hard stuck on Opulence to doe players failing mechanics which started the downward spiral for the team we eventually killed Opulence and managed to make quick work of Conclave. just before Easter we had our most successful raid clearing the first 5 bosses extremely quickly. and wiping on rastakhan sub 5% on our last pull of the night.
since that raid, we have struggled to get the numbers and we are yet to run a mythic raid since.
Do you use your abilities in a rotation or priority system for optimal performance? Can you describe, briefly, how it works? Why?
The BM Hunter rotation is based around casting Kill command on cooldown while not over spamming Cobra Shot so much that you waste its cooldown reduction and delay Kill Command which results in a DPS loss you also want to keep at least 3 stacks Frenzy on your target and refresh that buff as late as possible. it is impossible to keep 3 stacks of the buff on a target for 100% of the fight but you should always be aiming for that. I am not very good at explaining the rotation I have just watched videos used the class discord and spoken to high-level hunters about how to improve my rotation and take tips and tricks from them.
Why do you gear the way you do? Why do you have these items and enchants?
I base my gear of Simulation craft and constantly sim and re-sim my gear I am currently experimenting with the high crit DOD (dance of death) build so my enchants and gear is based on that at the moment but it is always subject to change I am currently debating saving my titan residuem for my BIS Chest as I already have the best helm and shoulders.
Add a link to your raid UI
Will link ASAP
Share a Speedtest.net link of your internet connection connecting to a server in France or Germany (location of game servers)
current speed test is 54.6MB UP 4.32MB Down
Link a raid log (Optional, but without it we'll have to assess you even before the trial raid)
Do you know anyone in the guild? Separate by commas
Why do you want to join? What do you expect of us?
I am looking for a 2 day a week mythic focused guild that strives to achieve cutting edge. I am hoping that I will be an asset, who is happy to help/ act on criticisms to improve my game and improve the play of others. I also hope for an active community that participates in Mythic + aswell as other games.
Anything else you'd like us to take into consideration?
I am always looking to improve myself and am by no means a finished article I look forward to your reply, successful or not I would always welcome feedback to improve so if I apply again in the future I can act on those points.
I confirm that I have read the guild rules as set out on http://silverblade-eu.com/pages/rules
