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.
My name is Stavros and I am an old guisser playing wow since vanilla; Old CTsamurai members might remember my old main (Jarlaxe Nelf Warrior from screams). Given that I am senior professional for my organisation I can only play in the evenings and I would have to probably calendar them.
Due to work I might have to travel, which means that I will not be able to probably follow all raids constantly but I would do my best. Currently I am 11/11 HC for both my DK and DH and in M+ I tank up to +17 (https://raider.io/characters/eu/neptulon/Ariakan).
My main motive for applying is that I would like to see the mythic fight scenarios and raid with mature non screaming people, since I met Hendy in one of my pug raids and we discussed me applying extensively afterwards.
Please link a screenshot of your user interface, preferably in a raid environment:
I keep a minimal raid interface since I do not like cluttering (DBM, Raid group, Abilities) recount and everything else suppressed)
If you have any logs showcasing your past raid performance then please link them below:
Please refer to Hendy, since he has seen my performance first hand - I am usually top3 in heroic groups ranging between 1.4 to 1.8 M dps ST, depending on the RNG gods of my Valkyrie
Can you tell us the stat weights you use for gear, gems, and enchants for your character?
For Unholy I keep 32% haste constantly and the boost mastery - reason being is that Valk has haste break points (24/28/32) and I am gaining substantial dps. My current setup is 15% Crit /33% Haste /91% mastery and 8 % versa amd about 48 K strength un-buffed.
As a tank I keep 32 % haste and I boost versatility afterwards - recently I completely soloed the opera in +11 tyrannical dye to my HPS and DPS.
Which Legendaries and how many traits do you have for each specialization? Which ones do you use for different situations?
I have 3 different load outs of equipment, since I have all dps Legos.
ST --> Shoulders + Chest
AoE --> Head + ring with extra talent
Mobility --> Shoulders + boots
Max ILV is 963 and the loadouts above are between 955 to 958.
I have 3 different load outs of equipment, since I have all TankLegos:
ST --> Shoulders + bracers
Necro --> Neck + back
Aoe --> Shoulders + belt (since it reduces my Vamp and I combo that with bonestorm).
What is your standard rotation for your current role (DPS/Healing/Tanking)?
ARMY 7sec before pull, Pre-pot at 2 sec , 2-3 HS --> apocalypse --> coil --> by now Crusader + Concordance is up --> Chest Lego--> then VP (DOT) --> valk + DT and then dumping runic to boost runic power.
Afterwards, keep dot always up, at least 3 festering wounds and prioritize SS whne Scourge of worlds is up.
Before next Valk is up pool runic power.
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.
Depending on boss I use different load outs of equipment; for instance on Eonar, Imonar and Kin I prefer to use my mobility set with boots in order to minimize downtime on boss; on most other bosses I use the ST.
In M+ I switch between the 3 sets constantly, as well when clearing trash on raids.
Please state your previous PvE experience and what guild(s) you have been in and your reason(s) for leaving:
I have pretty much cleared all content since vanilla up to and including Cataclysms and now in Legion all raids have been cleared up to heroic content in farm.
In terms of M+ I have tanked / dpsed up to +17 with pugs.
I have never done Mythic raiding, but I have done Naxxramas and AQ 40 at 60, which I believe is equivalent.
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.
As per my discussion with Hendy, I got the sense that the guild is comprised out of mature players (30+) that enjoy spending their downtime by playing WoW - for me it is a way to relax and decompress from work.
I know its weird but it relaxes me much more than watching TV for instance and at the same time you get a sense of accomplishment out of it.
Overall my main driver is to see the script of the fights, since it is like learning a new choreography which I enjoy quite a bit.
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?
Yes - if i need to travel for work or have long meetings. I will notify though.
Describe any conflicts you might have with our raiding schedule - our raiding days 8.30-11.30 PM ST Wed,Thurs and Mon
Wed and Mon should be fine - Thursday is the day that I might be travelling.
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.
Agrammar I am the idiot pulling and organizing the pug raids with Macros.
In coven I will offer to be the second or third tank to trivialize the fight.
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 can play DH, since the toon is geared for mythic raiding - I do not have any other ones....
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!
As I have said I am an old goat (39Y) that enjoys playing MMOS in his downtime a lot, since it decompress me from work, which is a source of stress as we all know.
I enjoy movies, working out and travelling, mainly to the seaside since I am greek :) I have been living abroad for the last 15 years and I am currently located in the " sunny" Netherlands :P
Are there any current members of CTSamurai who would vouch for you?
In order to help us improve our recruitment process, please state where/how you heard about us and that we were recruiting.
Anything you would like to add? Extra information etc.
I look forward playing with you guys and getting to know you better:)
