Character name:


Introduction - Let us get to know you! (Please include Gender, Age and Country)

Hello. My name is Atanas and like big tusks. Im Bulgarian , 27 and I identify as an orc. My preferred pronoun is Zug. I'm a lawyer specialised in gambling and entertainment law. I play WoW to have fun on the side but would also like to perform to top of my abilities. I've played wow since LK.

Please provide us with the following:
- Link to your armoury: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/shattered-hand/twinblade
- Personal warcraft logs:
https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/shattered-hand/twinblade (fury logs)

 (arms Logs) from T19

- A screenshot of your UI: (You can upload to imgur.com)
- Connection info results: (Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and connect to Stockholm)
I play at 35 ms and have never had issues with internet (unless outtages).
- Do you have a working microphone?

Stats - Please explain your stats priority and explain why you are using these.
While my Itemlevel is high my gear is fairly imbalanced in terms of stats. This is not due to lack of trying as i've farmed M+ but no suitable upgrade has dropped and I've been fairly unlucky with sockets and drops. I am hovering in low 24% of haste which is the minimum and a high 70 Mastery and 14 Versatility. I've been tuned for the troll race where the extra 15 % haste will cover my shortcomings. Currently. if i were to change everything to haste I would not be hitting hard enough at baseline. So i've decided to forego haste in favour of harder hits through mastery and versatility. Any Haste pieces (such as varimathras neck) would fix many problems and would raise my DPS in glorious fashion

My tanking gear is tuned for high mastery and low haste for M+ mostly as, when i get smashed by the adds, critical block will mitigate up to 60% of all hits. I can tune my warrior to tank raids will a few alterations and would not be a problem to do so.

Talents - Please explain your talent choices for a single target fight or an add controlled fight. And why you choose these talents.
Its abit tricky as a fury warrior but I'll do my best. I'll start off by describing all my talent choices and then applying them to ST and Cleave situations as context is always important.
 will be focusing on  T21 BB Fury as a mainspec and talents will be described on this assumption. Talent choices are fairly fluid in Antorus, deviating only on cleave fights.

TIER 15 is always a pick between War Machine and Endless rage - If war machine can have an uptime of (min 50%) I'd usually go for it. Some fights where it can't be applied (such as Felhounds) or where it would be useless (kin) i'd go for Endless Rage as it is the only viable talent.

TIER 30 - On progress kills I would usually pick shockwave for bosses like Portal keeper where Imps would be a problem. I personally prefer double time  for bosses like aggramar where theres a lot of in and out running as it leads to more rampages.

TIER 45 - Here i'd go mostly for Avatar unless our cleave is particularly terrible. Most cleave fights the adds are dead within several globals so the unpredictable proc of Wrecking ball is useless. Altho fights like Eonar wrecking balls is a must. Avatar is great because, as mentioned above, fury deals its damage in short, massive bursts and a 20 % damage increase during those bursts is quite tasty in single target situations.

TIER 60- usually bounding stride for extra mobility for soaking/disposing of garbage like soulblight. If i find myself taking far more damage (due to soaking mechanics) than other dps I would opt for  War paint. Needless to say that if we're under geared and the healing is slim i would be going for War paint.

TIER 75- Usually Frothing is the BIS talent here as massacre can be equipped with a ring when the Execution phase is long enough (15 stacks and above).

TIER 90- Fairly cut and dry here. Bloodbath is incredible for T21 and outstrips the others by miles. I usually sinc it with BC as it is fairly useless outside the burst windows. Inner rage is great and is the usual pick for all tiers Except 21 due to the aforementioned power of T4.

TIER 100 -Again, fairly self explanatory. Reckless abandon is the go to talent at all times. It extends our burst windows. Allowing multiple Extra GCDs  within the Burst window. It really is the Pimp My Ride of Talents where you put extra damage on your damage ontop of more damage.

With all that out of the way. Lets assume we're on Felhounds as they are fully ST with no warmachine potential. Fury warrior always has to account for whether he can have uptime on war machine. All other talents, as explained are very much set in stone. Varimathras is an amazing example of this. As someone who does the knockback mechanic I am always mindful of my war machine potential as I am out of range for a few seconds at a time.

Cleave fights are much more fun as theres more fluctuation between legendaries and talents. On progress of Antorus High Command. I would go for Berks and WW belt as the adds took a while to die. I would also go for Wrecking ball as it syncs incredibly well with WW belt. Nowadays, with gear ramp, this is mostly gone as adds die in seconds. War machine is always a must when adds are involved and uptime is greater than 60% (with the exception of aggramar and argus).

Resources - Please tell us sources you follow to keep up to date with your class:

Most of my resources come from the warrior Discord which has been invaluable in Legion. We've analyzed logs together and I've learned a great deal when it comes to rotational glitches. Other than that I use my own logs to check uptimes/casts of big CDs and I bang the dummies alot. I make my own personal weakauras for Rampage clipping and other useful procs.

Raiding history:
I've been raiding steadily in legion. Achieving cutting edge on xavius. However I had a medical emergency during Guarm Mythic Progress. I was diagnosed with Erysipelas (red wind). It is an acute bacterial infection which affected my right leg. I was hospitalised for 6 months and after that had to be bedridden with constant leg elevation. The infection was not severe enough for necrosis to form but I had constant fever. I came back at the very end of ToS but did not achieve any notable mythic progress. I am currently 11/11 in Antorus.

I have several cutting edges In HFC and SOO.

Guild history and reason for leaving them:My most notable guild is Victus. I am aware that two of my former teammates (one being an officer) are also in the guild.  The guild's main troubles stem from the fact that it is on a small (dead) realm and that the few players there will always go to the one guild who has the shiny realm first. We had multiple roster changes throughout antorus which ended up crippling our raid progression. After downing Argus we completely collapsed with most of the main players leaving a few days after the kill due to burn out.

The Bulgarian-only guild is Called BPEMETO in emeriss. The guild collapsed in emeriss in early cataclysm. The one running currently is only identical in name but the management  and roster are completely different.

Any other guilds i've been in are as a social or were not actively raiding mythic.

Expectations - What do you expect from us and what can we expect from you:

I expect a chance to prove myself for a spot on your main raid team as a fury warrior. I will never reroll from this and you can expect me to stay one during the course of the expansion.

Freetext - Anything else you wish to add? Your last chance to impress us!

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read through my application. I'm looking forward to meeting you for a further discussion in discord (if need be).
 As I am sure you are already aware I am not the first applicant from Victus so it would a pleasure to meet with my friends again in Antorus. While I value their input and it is your prerogative to ask them about me I would like to stand on my own merits.

As stated to Shimara on battletag I have decided to reopen my application as i saw the raiding atmosphere on stream. I like that you are social as well as focused on progression. This is huge for me as I would likely quit the game if i dint enjoy the people there. I believe I would fit in well and I also miss my buddies who are already in.

I've been told by Ant that leaving servers and changing names  is a problem for my application. This has never been the case. I had to change servers in Shattered hand as my guild died. This can be confirmed by the multitudes of victus players who have also migrated (some to this guild).

Regarding my name, its always been Twinblade, most of the times with an HTML character as it has been taken on high pop realms.


Issue ID: #61650905

Your ticket has received the following response:


Thank you for contacting Blizzard Support.

As discussed, the name Twinblade is reserved for 30 days. I'm unfortunately unable to get around this restriction, can you please contact us on the 12th of May and we'll try and change it for you at no charge.

Also, since you should not have needed to pay for a Name Change, I've requested a refund for that order - the £9 should be returned to you in the next 7 to 14 days.

I've also flagged the character for a rename so that you can change it for now.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions,

This is a recent ticket response i've received. I've recently purchased the name Twinblade for 5 million so my name will be secured within a month. I have linked my logs as arms in EN. Here is Proof that they are mine https://imgur.com/bG0cyPd. This is to prove that That version of twinblade is also mine.  I believe this should cover all concerns

After speaking to Drayne, having my whispers ignored or answered in a vague/throwaway manner and waiting for a week for officers who cannot make a simple decision i have decided to make that decision for you.  Application withdrawn.
