We are a World of Warcraft Guild playing on the PvP Realm Neptulon-EU. We have existed since the realm started back in September 2005 and our primary aim is to provide a friendly atmosphere for our members to enjoy the game in.
CTSamurai is always looking for exceptional players to strengthen its core raid group. All appropriate applicants will be considered. OPEN - Recruiting for Legion Actively seeking: 1 Healer and Ranged dps.
Hey, my name is Svetoslav, I am Bulgarian.
Everyone calls me "Misho", used to it.
I work as SW QA engineer in Sofia.
Please link a screenshot of your user interface, preferably in a raid environment:
If you have any logs showcasing your past raid performance then please link them below:
Can you tell us the stat weights you use for gear, gems, and enchants for your character?
CBA to upload UI screenshot or logs now.
This because I haven't raided Mythic content since October '16. Still have no raid addons like Weak Auras updated and configured. I don't need such stuff yet.
For Fire something like:
Intellect [9.03] > Crit [7.53] > Mastery [6.03] > Haste [4.53] > Versatility [3.03]
I prefer to run heavy Crit build because it is very funny, do not care about min-maxing now, I mostly play solo.
Got no Pawn or other simcraft addon installed ATM.
Which Legendaries and how many traits do you have for each specialization? Which ones do you use for different situations?
Currenty I have:
Koralon's Burning Touch and Shard of the Exodar for Fire single. Still chasing the best one - Marquee Bindings of the Sun King, only two drops left so i expect to snatch it in two weeks.
Got the two BiS leg's for Arcane - Shard of the Exodar and Soul of the Archmage. I lack good gear and practice to play efficiently arcane, but will catch up fast if I have to.
ATM I am totally unprepared to play Frost plus I don't enjoy this specc too much.
What is your standard rotation for your current role (DPS/Healing/Tanking)?
I may go write into such details later only on request.
I understand the Fire rotations and I am very versatile and experienced Fire mage.
Please describe a "recent" raid boss that really demonstrates how you have gone above and beyond your current role (DPS/Healing/Tanking). This may involve using a special spec, a non-standard rotation, or non-standard gear/glyphs. If possible, link us a parse of you doing this.
As I said, I havent raided any Mythic content this calendar year :)
I have been carried as a baggage twice in a "Rise Against" Heroic mixed ALT/main ToS raid thanks to my GF (she plays there).
I was able to survive all the encounters, unlike many, and to deliver good DPS for my terrible at that time gear.
I impoved my gear drastically and pushed my gear to ilvl 937. Mostly via solo play.
Obviously I cannot demonstrate anything. I am convinced that I can provide more than enough for a mythic raiding guild progress if given the chance and some time to catch up.
Please state your previous PvE experience and what guild(s) you have been in and your reason(s) for leaving:
I play WoW since the American open Beta (September 2004?, that was looong time ago).
I have spent the biggest part of my WoW "career" Horde side.
2005 - 2011 The Devastating Throng (Warsong and Neptulon), been officer via WotLK and part of TBC.
Many Realm first Heroic boss kills were achieved 2009-2010 with TDT. Guild disbanded 2011. My main char was Undead/Troll Mage Mishraakh.
Achieved many realm first (we were into competition with Todu's Rise Against those days) and copuntless Horde firsts.
I have lost that account permanently for botting, sadly. Had over 400 days played on the mage alone. I still feel sorry about that.
Also had some raiding periods with Paradigma on Emeriss, Enslaved on Emeriss an Warsong, guild Imbalanced on Neptulon.
Then I lost my account because I was stupid (some automation caught) and stopped playing.
I have purchased my current WoW account in 2012 to play together with my GF, went Ally side, had no choice :s.
Afterwards I had two active and successful raiding periods in "Brainstorm", sadly the last one ended after serious and ugly argument with one of the officers. IMO the guy was poisoning the whole raid and the guild with his attitude and constant dramas. I wasn't supported by the GM Edax in this argument and quited. Few months ago the guild merged into another and died soon after because of the same reasons.
I am generally easy going dude, friendly to my guildmates, always try to be helpful when posible.
I am also an "expert" AH abuser and always have the best BoEs and raid consumables, know how to "make" gold ingame.
Why do you wish to join CTSamurai and what convinces you that you would be a good addition to CTSamurai? What sets you apart? ←Money Question, one-liners here reflect poorly…think about it.
Because you are an well established guild - old like the Bible :)
I can remember you back in TBC, I know that your core is mature and friendly.
Only had possitive inpressions from CTS members during my stay Ally side here.
I have never raided with you guys, but I am sure that I will be able to contribute to the raiding success and hopefully the guild atmosphere if given a shot and some time. If not - will not be annoying and will leave.
I'm totally fed up with playing in Bulgarian only guilds because of the constant drama and the mostly negative approach to anything.
If we offer you a trial period we would expect a 100% attendance rate so that we can gauge your performance. Is there any reason why you would not be able to meet this requirement?
I hope so, will try to. I work hard + I drive nearly 3 hours each working day. Some overtime work and traffic could stop me for raid, but extremely rarely. I have usually had always 95% raid attendance, was DKP officer and loot master in TDT.
Describe any conflicts you might have with our raiding schedule - our raiding days 8.30-11.30 PM ST Wed,Thurs and Mon
Suits me Perfectly well, I have raided 24 hours a week back in 2009.
Describe your role in a raid and what you bring to a raid (e.g. An important role on a certain boss). This is your chance to show us your knowledge and capability of your class.
Not gonna write details here but when I raided with Brainstorm usualy I was the Ranged one to do the sucky and tricky jobs due reliability and PC/connection quality.
Would you be willing to play an alternative class/spec during progression in order to help the guild progress in a more efficient manner? While alts are not mandatory, it's always a great addition for a fight where class stacking is preferred.
I will play any specc if I am told to do so. Got decently geared DK tank that i can bring online if we lack tank.
This is an old guild with a family/friend-like atmosphere. It is important to us that we get to know more of who you are then just another player, so tell us a little about yourself. This could very well sell your application to us, so HAVE FUN!
Well I already gave some info above but:
Name's Misho, Old prick, ex-Horde, Horde lover, but still kickin, team player, got huge sense of humor, I totally enjoy the good laughing.
Got great GF, she also plays WoW, got great Subaru Tribeca, I love 'em both really much! Ofc I love my GF more.
Like to hang up with friends twice a week (most of the ex WoW HC players, some of them - yet active casual).
Will be mostly offline during workdays 'cause I work alot.
Will be online mostly during raid times and Weekends
I like to be on the Vent/TS/Discord when online, I love to chat with people.
I am mature enough to not dramatize and BS your atmosphere. Will try not to annoy anyone in any way.
Are there any current members of CTSamurai who would vouch for you?
No, this is the most interesting part of the application. Probably you haven't heard of me too.
In order to help us improve our recruitment process, please state where/how you heard about us and that we were recruiting.
I remember CTSamurai ingame for like 14 years, not sure? When I decided to play in international EN speaking guild I just went to www.wowprogress.com and contacted you (Anoobisath). Thats all.
Anything you would like to add? Extra information etc.
I understand that I am complete Blackbox for you and I will be ok to be left on bench permanently or demoted to Social if I do not deliver / fit to your raid in long term.
I believe you won't regret it if you pick me up. I am not some bitter butthurt noobish child or drama queen.
Just gimme a Trial and some time/patience to learn the ToS tactics and I will deliver consistently. For sure I am not nearly as good as a raiding mage as i was before, but will cath up ASAP with some help.
Got plans, time and resources now to raid Antorus and the next expansion.
Please, excuse my poor English, lacking practice, I hope I will improve in CTS!!! :)
