Character name:
Brokolli

Battletag:
gary#2302

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

I'm Gary a human male, 22 and from the UK. I work in advertising and have never eaten avocado.


Please provide us with the following:
- Link to your armoury: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/Brokolli
- Personal warcraft logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/argent-dawn/brokolli
- A screenshot of your UI: (You can upload to imgur.com) https://imgur.com/a/xu0WCSA
- Connection info results: (Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and connect to Stockholm) https://i.imgur.com/cKEwHaV.png
- Do you have a working microphone? Yep


Stats - Please explain your stats priority and explain why you are using these.

Int>Haste>Crit>Vers>Mastery

I sim my character whenever a get a new piece of gear to see what is best for what fight styles, similarly with azerite traits.

The weights tend to move in rankings but not in absolute dps values, particularly with trinkets.

Talents - Please explain your talent choices for a single target fight or an add controlled fight. And why you choose these talents.

In general, for fights with adds I use stormkeeper instead of ascendance.

It depends how the adds come into the fight, if they come in compact packs and survive for while I'll use aftershock over totem mastery. This is also true of fights that require high burst phases, regardless of ST or adds.

Storm elemental could also be useful if I can get enough value from chain lightning.

If they can be stunned I might choose static charge also.


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

There aren't any for ele, so I spend a lot of time trawling through logs before a boss to see what has worked well for other people. Then I combine that with my own character and the sims I've carried out. Then I'll record the initial attempts on a boss and review the footage to see where things could be improved.

This all takes quite a bit of time, but I enjoy the "research>practice>refine>results" process

Raiding history:

I've been playing since TBC but didn't raid casually till dragon soul.
I did some mythic raiding in Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry on my Ret (logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/8608858?zone=7&mode=detailed)
Then I've got back into raiding this expansion now I have some more free time and am looking to down each raid tier of the expansion, currently 3/8M.

Guild history and reason for leaving them:

Santa Maria (BRF) - We never killed blackhand and the enthusiasm in the guild dissolved so I left to do IRL stuff.
Legalise peacebloom (Uldir) - The raids were too disorganised and negative for my liking, I told the leader I am looking for a new guild but am happy to continue in the meantime. He benched me from the team and so I said my goodbyes and left.

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

Endless can expect a player that:
-Goes above and beyond in preparation for fights, doing meticulous research on how to best perform their class.
-Maintains focus on guild progression at all times, who is there to down bosses.
-Has 100% attendance, is calm and who brings a positive attitude.
I have all of these qualities and believe I would be an excellent addition to the raiding team.

I expect from endless:
-Organised and functional raids, with a clear understanding of how we are going to approach a boss and what needs to be improved to get it down.
-Focus and dedication to the cause from my co-raiders
-Positive and friendly atmosphere, maybe with some banter during trash

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

I work hard to be the best player in the raid and have a strong competitive edge to be the "go to player" when you think about who brings the most to the raid.

Eles are also getting a big buff in 8.1 so now would be a good time to think about having them in the roster before other guilds start to think about the next raid tier (there aren't many of us out there).

Thanks for reading, and I'd love the opportunity to raid with Endless and show you how I perform.

Hello Brokolli!

Thank you for applying to us here in Endless. Officers have decided to decline your application, due to low current experience.

We wish you the best of luck onwards
