[*]Answer every question.
[*]Use proper grammar and spelling.
[*]Please be as detailed; you don't have to write a book, but make sure the answers reflect an understanding of why we asked the question we asked.
[*]Be honest because we will attempt to verify claims you make about performance or raiding history.
[*]Format the application nicely so it's easily readable.[/list]Please be aware that applications of ANY class will always be considered despite being listed as closed. Should you require a private application you can PM one of the Officers.

After submitting your application it will be reviewed by our members and appear in the recruitment thread. Please keep an eye on the topic because we may have questions for you. If we like your application we will set up a Mumble interview. After the interview we will let you know how we want to proceed. Usually we like to think it over for a day or two before making a final decision. Feel free to contact any member of the guild if you have any additional questions about the guild. Do not contact members about your application status.

Once accepted you will be invited to the guild as a Trial. Our trial period is at the minimum a month; it lasts longer if further evaluation is required. Applicants are judged in many aspects of raiding from performance to perceived motivation and longevity.

A POORLY WRITTEN APPLICATION

1. Post your Age(IRL), Character Name, Primary Spec, Off Spec, Armory Link and BattleTag.
- 23, Shmooskie, Arms, ARMS, https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/chara ... /shmooskie, Shmooski#1685

2. Link recent WarcraftLogs parses that you have. Do not skip this step; Heroic parses are required, Mythic are preferred.
- https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/ ... /shmooskie

3. What prior raiding experience do you have? What tiers have you completed start to finish while they were current?
- I only just recently got back into playing in like September of 2017 and I hadn't played before that since Cata came out. Initial guild I joined ended at 9/9H for Tomb, we didn't have the numbers to try mythic. Joined a new guild once Antorus came out and have pushed to argus, with minimal pulls on him after our main tank quit.

4a. What Mythic (or Heroic before WoD) raiding guilds have you been a part of? Why did you leave/want to leave?
- The Immortal Brotherhood. Heroic 9/9 Tomb. Progression was slow and numbers were low. Felt like I was being held back if I'm being honest.
- Happy Little Trees. 10/11M Antorus. After our main tank quit, Argus progression is looking grim. Raid times were also bad with them being on the west coast and me on the east.

4b. Please provide at least two references from your prior guilds (Hint: we will need their BattleTags or an email address where we can contact them). Where possible, at least one of these should be a leader of your most recent guild who still plays the game (even casually).
- Cannasmack. Current guild lead. Don't have his battletag and he is offline at the time of doing this application, but I can get it if it's needed at a later time.
- Demohunto. Derek#1724
- Backgrounds. phantums#1182

5. Are there any conflicts with our raid schedule?
- None that I see.

6. Post a screenshot of your UI in raid combat and list your essential raid addons. Do not skip this step.
- https://imgur.com/fS9baZP
- DBM, ERT, Weakauras, and of course DETAILS, that's the most important one.

7. Tell us about your computer. Do you have a wired connection or a wireless connection? What is your usual MS to a Chicago Server? Please include a speedtest result to a Chicago server.
- Current PC has a Radeon RX 580 series, 8gb RAM, AMD Ryzen 7 1700x 8-core CPU. Building a new PC by April 2nd when all the parts come in. That will have an Asus GTX 1080, 16gb RAM, 1tb HDD and 250gb SSD, and Intel core i5-8400.
- Wired connection
- http://www.speedtest.net/result/7177790057

8. How did you find out about us? Why do you want to be a part of this guild?
- My boy Lup found me on wowprogress and hit me up. I would like to be a part of Vindicatum because I feel like I can grow and continue improving with you guys. Also I hear you have memes.

9. What do you think your primary spec brings to raids? What are the strengths of your spec? What are the weaknesses? Name specific abilities that you can use to make specific encounters in the current (or past tier) easier.
- Pros: SPICY execute phase, commanding shout for big raid damage, strong single target and AOE damage. Weaknesses include lack of cc and the set up time for burst making it hard to help with some mechanics (Adds on mythic varimathras).

10. How strong are you on your off-spec? Would you have a problem if we asked you to raid on your off-spec?
- Arms til the day I die baby. Nah but in all seriousness neither of my off-specs are good whatsoever. Not leveled up at all.

11. What specific information sources do you use to keep up with your class mechanics?
- I am always checking the top 10 Arms Warriors on warcraftlogs.com to see if any new strategies for pulling bigger numbers come up. I am also part of the warcraftlogs discord where there are discussions on strategies every day.

12. What other classes/specs do you have geared up and ready to play at a competitive level?
- None #onetrickpony

13. How many points do you have spent in your main spec weapon? Off spec weapons? How many Mythic+'s have you completed? (Please note: we will not entertain any applicant without 75 points in their main weapon absent exceptional circumstances)
- 80 points in main spec. 52 in offspec.
- Mythic+ is not my forte, but I have completed all dungeons with the exception of Arcway and Seat at +15 or higher.

14. Do you have a stream? If so, please link it.
- N/A

15. What is on your "R" Keybind?
- Heroic Leap

16. Tell us more about you.
- What up, my boys call me Phil (first 4 of last name). I'm in the Marine Corps, and with the work schedule that comes with that, all I really do during the week is work, eat, workout, raid, and sleep. I get out on May 10th thank fucking god. I'm a pretty chill dude all the time until you cuck my pre-pot. Sense of humor is dark and fucked up FYI, but that makes for the best memes.
17. When are you available for a Mumble interview?
- Whenever I'm on. Downloading Mumble as I type this.
