Character name:


Introduction - Let us get to know you! (Please include Gender, Age and Country)
I am a 22 year old male from Denmark. I currently study at University and I love video games.

Please provide us with the following:
- Link to your armoury: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravenholdt/lavi
- Personal warcraft logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/31385450 These are my logs after a name/race change. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/15217341 These are before and contains most of my logs from Legion

- Connection info results: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7289462427 (Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and connect to Stockholm)
- Do you have a working microphone? Yes.

Stats - Please explain your stats priority and explain why you are using these.
I always sim myself to see what stats are the best and currently Crit, Mastery and Versatility are very close in value with agility a bit below them and haste a bit below agility. Agility scales fairly linearly so it isnt as strong as it was earlier in the expansion since I now how so much of it. Crit scales off of nearly all my damage sources except for Touch of Death and Touch of Karma. Since these two abilities combined is a fairly large portion of my damage Crit is fairly valuable. Mastery however scales with Touch of Death but does not increase auto attack damage or trinket procs. This makes it very valuable a lot of the time but since I have so much mastery currently, my other stats are catching up in value. Versatility increase all of my damage done basically but it takes 450 points per 1% versus Mastery and Crits 375. This means I need more versatility to get the same % damage increase but it is very much worth it since everything benefits from it. Haste is not nearly as good as the other stats which is why I have so little of it and it is still very bad. Haste increase resources and cooldown generation but not on some of my most important abilities. It doesnt scale with my two best cooldowns, Touch of Death and Storm, Earth, and Fire. It also does not affect Strike of the Windlord which is my most important rotational ability.

Talents - Please explain your talent choices for a single target fight or an add controlled fight. And why you choose these talents.
Most of Windwalker talents are fairly static as they are usually the best in virtually every situation currently. Chi wave synergies very well with our mastery. Energizing Elixir is the talent that gives the most resources on that row without any competition so even using it sub optimally it is usually still better than the other two. Hit Combo is a flat 12% damage increase at all times. Rushing Jade Wind could be argued in a scenario where there is a constant 7+ mobs to hit, but since we havent seen that yet its likely not taken this tier. Xuen could also have some use if a boss mechanic lines up with its cooldown where the boss takes extra damage but even then Hit Combo is very close. Whirling Dragon Punch is the best ability you can take in nearly all situations as well. It is an activated version of Chi Orb that does more damage and with the tier changes Serenity isnt as good as it was in previous raids.

Resources - Please tell us sources you follow to keep up to date with your class:
I follow the website Peakofserenity and its discord whenever a relevant article is posted. Furthermore I also have a few of the theorycrafters on my bnet to ask for advice if I am really in doubt or struggling.

Raiding history:
I raided mostly casual with family and friends from Burning Crusade up untill MoP. I usually cleared content but a while after it was considered current. In MoP I joined a guild and cleared ToT10 heroic and SoO10 Heroic. In WoD i started raiding with some friends and got Cutting edge in Highmaul and HFC but missed Blackhand Mythic. In Legion I have cleared every raid with my current guild while getting cutting edge.

Guild history and reason for leaving them:
I am leaving my current guild as I did not enjoy raiding the amount of hours they do for their amount of progress. I want something more efficient.

Expectations - What do you expect from us and what can we expect from you:
I expect an efficient raiding guild who clears content in a timely while fun fashion. You can expect a progress oriented player who isnt afraid of doing the dirty work on bosses or going out of my way to make it easier for others. Furthermore I dont mind taking a step back from the raid team if it is needed on a certain boss.

Freetext - Anything else you wish to add? Your last chance to impress us!
I view myself as a teamplayer since I dont mind having to go out of my way for others to succeed. I sit and look through logs in between pulls to find problems and come up with solutions. I also hope that you will give me a chance as a DPS player despite only having done Antorus Mythic as a tank.

Hello Lavi!

Thank you for applying to us here in Endless. Officers have decided to decline your application, due to not having any windwalker logs. All provided are as brewmaster.

We wish you the best of luck onwards
