No, I vendored my Shadow resist from BC since the amount of resist needed would be so much higher that I'd need a new set at 80.

What is your trinket set-up?
The Egg of Mortal Essence/Memento of Tyrande
Do you have the 2 minute PvP trinket?
Yes, epic version just for kicks.
Do you need any obvious upgrades?

The only possible upgrades for me from 10 man badges would be Tier 7 gloves, there aren't any upgrades from heroics.

Arizona. (No.)

How old are you?

Do you have a mic/headset for vent?
No.

Do you have Grid, XPerl, PallyPower, or some other UI that helps you buff, pick up loose aggro, etc?
Grid, even though its a bitch on Malygos.

Raid Experience
Spider/Plague wing cleared in 25man Naxx, Spider/Plague and Patchwerk cleared in 10. Sartharion down in 25. Malygos down in 10. Wintergrasp lolboss dead in both.

Not sure why he left(?) but I have said it before and I'll say it again:

Secondary is uniquely one of the most talented individuals with which I have ever played the game and it goes far beyond simple healing and buffing.

Paladin buffing is (was?) one of the most tedious chores in the game due to 1) the numerous amount of buffs; 2) the spec-exclusion and min/max of some buffs (imp might, imp wisdom, kings, sanctuary); 3) off-specs causing about 50% of the headaches from trying to manage single variants of the group buffs; and 4) the best tool to manage it was not exactly quick or easy (no saved values for a given set up of paladins, etc). Secondary did it and frequently managed it without ever once getting angry or upset.

To that point, Secondary is one of the most level-headed individuals I have seen in a raid environment. He doesn't panic when an encounter is going badly, he doesn't assign blame (although I do have a small issue here, which I will address shortly), and he is quick to accept it when he is at fault unlike many people who would shirk such public scorn.

Finally, paladin healing is (was?) not exactly an exciting task. It was completely stationary (at least shamans had earth shield and totem management), and had basically two spells with one crappy "emergency" spell. It (Holy) was (still is?) one of the worst farming specs. And it caused burnout faster than I ever saw from any other class or spec. Think of all the paladins we couldn't keep for various reasons (Wizo, Charlemagne, whats-his-name that was Broms's friend). Secondary showed up to every raid even though he despised Hyjal (who wouldn't after wiping to an encounter that is on farm?).

My one complaint with Secondary is that he tended to pick poor choices in his friends and he liked to move to their collective level. It is the one main reason I did not promote him to an officer post on three separate occasions. He had a tendency to act immature and childish outside of raids, and gang up on people for the typical school yard bully fest. I firmly believe Secondary is head and shoulders above most of his cohorts, but he had a bit to learn about leadership in times of peace as well as times of war at the time of my departure.

Still, no single person I have ever seen apply carries my higher esteem or regard among applicants to this guild (okay, except maybe Broms, but it's hard to be impartial there considering that we went back a bit) and I hope you seriously consider him for reinstatement.

Why so serious?









(He's not actually re-apping, he never technically left. Well technically he did but not really. Well, I guess he did but... nvm.)
