Guild History

Acknowledgment of agreement to our rules and times
Rules sound more than fair.

Preparedness for the next scheduled raid, unless stated here
I'm ready to raid whenever I'm needed.

Reason(s) for applying
I would like to see end game content and become a better player. My current guild seems to be content with running 10-mans forever.

Final Thoughts, why you would be a good addition to Damage Done
I love this game. Raid times seem very reasonable and I should be able to make most, if not all, of them(I'm enlisted in the Army, so training takes first priority. I go out to the field for extended periods of time a few times a year, and have to go shoot at the ranges once a month, etc.). I'm not an idiot. I haven't seen a lot of content that I wish I would have by now, but if you tell me I'm gonna be doing such and such, I'll do my research and do my best to succeed. I do my best to get along with everyone and I try to stay away from drama. I'm sure I'm not as good of a player as most of you, but wanting to improve is the reason I'm filling out this application.

If possible, please include a screenshot of your UI

Thank you for your interest in our guild, and as a fellow military member (Air Force) I completely understand the need for a somewhat flexible schedule. Respectfully we're going to have to decline your application at the moment, but we will allow you to reapply later on pending some major improvements.

I ask that you take all criticism constructively because we're not trying make anyone look bad. We just want applicants to have optimal setups, and in most cases we help improve people in our application process.

To be very frank your gear is very far behind our current progression. I would suggest doing as many badge runs as possible to improve your bracers, boots, chest, cloak, neck, and belt. Also you may not know it, but with your mix of resilience gear in your tanking set you are way above the "soft cap" needed for tanking. The "soft cap" is approximately 2.6% critical hit chance reduction with SotF. You can obtain this with defense or resilience. Defense is optimal, but I find that some resilience pieces are ok to use when necessary. For example I'm short of hitting the soft cap with defense alone so I use pvp boots to push myself over the top. The fact that you are far over the cap suggests lack of theory-craft knowledge which makes me and other officers skeptical. Also you should know that the DPS hit cap for feral druids is 142 at the moment. It will change with the coming patch, but once again this shows either unwillingness to upgrade gear or lack of class knowledge.

Your spec isn't too far off, but you are missing a very key talent for DPS. Shredding attacks is very important for cat dps. Feral druids are valued for thier ability to dps when not needed as a tank. Some specs can differ slightly due to preference, but this talent is a must. I would suggest dropping points out of primal tenacity, because stuns and fears are rarely a major issue for a tank in high end raiding.

Lastly your some of your gems and enchants confuse me. The armor enchants to your gloves and boots are outshined by agility enchants here (especially with your low dodge %). Some enchants may vary on certain pieces due to gear. After hitting soft cap for a tanking you should gem purely for agility and stamina. After obtaining hit cap for cat gear you should gem and enchant purely for agility. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me in game. I am always happy to help a fellow feral druid.
