Introduction - Let us get to know you! (Please include Gender, Age and Country)
Hi! I am Marijn (just call me ixa), 22 years old from the Netherlands. Just finished my bachelors degree in information science.

Please provide us with the following:
- Link to your armoury: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/boulderfist/ixadin
- Personal warcraft logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/19007568

- Do you have a working microphone? Yes!

Stats - Please explain your stats priority and explain why you are using these.
Stat priority shifts around and I base mine on sims. Currently I am in need of versatility and crit. Haste is generally fine for us if it is 20%+ with some break points between 20-30, anything over 30 is not needed. Mastery is our worst stat and doesn't provide anything significant that cant be achieved by other stats (I have too much mastery atm). Crit and vers then just increase our throughput.

Talents - Please explain your talent choices for a single target fight or an add controlled fight. And why you choose these talents.
Retribution basically has 2 setups at the moment: zeal and blade for single target or fires of justice and devine hammer for aoe. It highly depends on what the fight demands, where a fight of goroth is an obvious single target build, but on mistress mythic both builds could be useful, depending on how much add damage is needed and how much cleave there already is (to not kill them too early with passive hammers cleave).

Resources - Please tell us sources you follow to keep up to date with your class:
I stay up to date by following any updates to the game itself (mmochamp), thoughts other paladins have on the paladin discord and I like to discuss with some rets I know that also play at a high level. I also like to figure stuff out on my own by running sims of different setups and talents.

Raiding history:
I raided hardcore during wrath and the beginning of cataclysm. Quit the game and came back for legion. Have been working to get back to my current level ever since the end of EN.

Guild history and reason for leaving them:
I used to raid in NotLikeThis, which was merged with my guild before that; reverie. I started legion in that guild and worked my way back to the level I knew I could perform on. This also resulted in me growing the ranks in the guild making it to GM all the way in the end. The guild fell apart due to attendancy issues, us lowering in rank because of not being able to raid and that led to us not able to get the right recruits in.

Expectations - What do you expect from us and what can we expect from you:
I like to play the best I possibly can. This includes doing research on my class, talents and gear, as well as figuring as much out on my own as possible. I like to test things, run different sims and find optimal set-ups and stat weights. Because if this I can aim for the gear I want and need. I like to push myself constantly to perform better, both dmg wise as well as mechanics. I like to improve my gameplay by looking at how others perform and approach a fight and compare that to my own performance. This relates to gear/legendary setup and tactical approach to fights. I used to raidlead in NH and ToS, so my preparation approach to fights is usually very detailed, considering different aspects of the fight from healing to tanking and everything in between. I also create and try my own weakauras out and think about how I can improve my game by building some auras for that fight.

I expect a competitive and dedicated raiding environment, where everyone pulls their own weight without hand-holding. Steady mythic progression and fair loot distribution to help that progression. I would expect the guild to treat members based on performance instead of how long they have been in the guild.

Freetext - Anything else you wish to add? Your last chance to impress us!
Experienced raid leader and log analyzer! Will thus always be prepared and have a detailed insight on what went wrong previous raids. Would love to prove myself and push some mythic bosses with you guys! If you have any question, don't hestitate to ask.
