Personal Information
Your real name: Mads Bak
Age and Country: I'm 26 years, and I'm living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Tell us about yourself: I'm studying law at the university of copenhagen, and I got a part time governmental job which is relevant for my education. In my spare time (when not playing wow) I hang out with friends, and tend to go out a lot. I'm also going to the gym once a day. I'm the type of person that, once I've decided upon something, I get it done (or at least don't stop till I've done my best to achieve whatever I set my mind upon). I'm an achiever, when I try to do things, my goal is always to be the best at what I'm doing (allthough sadly, I rarely am Wink )
Tell us about your history in WoW or other MMOs: I started playing wow around 2 years ago, when my old roommate introduced me to it, and I was hooked (this was shortly after all the Shattered sun offensive dailly quests was available on the isle of quel'danas). I played a hunter (Charmisnar, emerald dream) as a main for quite some time, and raided with it as a main as well. Shortly before wotlk was introduced, most of the server was dead (as people was waiting for the expansion). I then rolled a paladin, and played him as a main. I played him both as a tank and a healer (healer was my main specc) througout the start of wotlk. I took a break shortly before ulduar came out, and when I came back and rejoined my old guild (arctic vikings, emerald dream) I rolled a DK tank. The guild was almost at yogg by then, so I basically got thrown into tanking the whole instance the first night I raided again (was very stressfull as I had no clue what was waiting around the next corner, I had looked up tacs on all bosses' though). After some time I just didn't feel like the guild suited me anylonger, so I thought about what I wanted to do, and migrating seemed like a good option. Some of my old friends had also left the guild at this point. I migrated along with a bunch of friends, and we made a 10 man guild here on twisting nether. About this time I rerolled a resto druid, which has been my main since, and I simply love playing it.
In vanille I didnt play, so no raids done there (as lvl 60 at least).
In tbc I joined late, and I never got into serious raiding in tbc.
Info about your computer and internet connection: Playing on a Pentium Dual-Core T4300, 2,10GHz, 4GB ram, ATI Radeon HD 4570 graphics card.
Do you use an Authenticator?: Yes I do, core hound ftw =)
How stable is your internet connection?: I'm rarely having touble with my connection.
How much fps do you normally have in 25man raids in combat? around 25.
Whats your ping (latency) in dalaran? around 200 usually.
Does ANY other person have or will ever have access/password to your account? : Nope, I used to have someone handling parental controls during exam periods. I might do that again (I know its silly, but it works for me).
Did you read and understand the criteria for joining us inside the "Application Template"? Yes

Character Information
Character Name: Charmismis
Class & Race: Tauren druid
Professions (including Cooking & Fishing): (State your skill and rare recipies also) I dont have anything worth mentioning on this toon, and untill there will be some BoP gains (or fishing bosses like Lurker, etc.) I most likely wont level it as I have it maxed on 2 other toons.
Main spec: Well I've actually played resto as main up untill now, however I've started playing balance lately, and I really enjoy it. So for this application my main is balance =) My gear level aint that horrible (allthough I'm a wee bit under hit cap, and frightingly low on crit). My raw stats are: 3203sp, 281 hit, 24,78 crit (30,9 in moonkin form with motw) and 709 haste.
I'm still working a lot on my gear (you'll notice that my legs are sanctified resto legs).
Off Spec: Resto, been playing this ever since I rolled a druid, with the ICC ring (which is now the dps one) I'm 2 below haste cap (not worth switching the last gem out for haste over SP imo, been trying both and can't notice the difference). My raw stats are: 3222 SP, 853 haste, 710mp5 OOC, 393 in combat. I've got 3 sanctified pieces for this specc.
Armory Profile:
http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Twisting+Nether&cn=Charmismis
Information about your Keybindings: (We need to know what sort of keybindings you use for your spells/abiltiies.)
Uhh, spam inc. For moonkin I use: 1=IS, 2=MF, 3=FF, 4=Hurricane, 5=Starfall, Shift+f=Roots, Shift+d=Force of nature(treants), shift+c=War stomp(tauren racial), shift+e=wrath, shift+r=Starfire, shift+x=Typhoon, Ctrl+mouse4=Tranquility, alt+mouse4=nastures swiftness+cyclone(macroed), shift+1=healthstone, shift+2=mana pot, shift+3=haste/wild magic pot, shift+a=natures grasp, shift+q=innervate, shift+w=trinket1, shift+s=barkskin, shift+4=moonkin form(or cancel it), shift+5=cat form, where a whole new set of keybindings appears. I don't know my cat keybindings by heart (as I'm rarely playing kitty), and mainly because of this I need my action bars showed =). On top of this I use grid+clique for combat rezzes and all my heals are bound there as well. I'm using Decursive as well.
Do you have Ventrilo and a working microphone?: Yes
Previous PvE Experience:
Classic: None (as lvl 60 at least).
TBC: Karazhan, first few in Zul'aman, Gruul, maggy, Lurker/hydross and some attempts on al'ar. Thats it.
WotLK: Cleared everything on normal except yogg/algalon, and don't think I went far into ulduar on 10 man. I never made any HM's in toc either (well I've done till anub on 10 man, but not till I outgeared the place).
in icc10: all on normal, first 3 on hc, rotface/fester and crimson hall on hc.
in icc25: all on normal, Marrowgar/gunship heroic, crimson hall heroic, rotface and valithria on heroic. Only done many of these once, but its still experience =)
Also got myself a RS 10 man kill the other day. Havent tried it heroic yet.
All my raid experience has been as resto. I've also cleared icc10 normal as a tank on my DK, and a few hardmodes as well.
Hodir rep level : Exalted
First aid level : 450
Do you have any PvP experience? If so what rating and bracket? (High rating players is a huge plus) I actually enjoy pvp, but I've never achieved anything worth mentioning =)
Do you have any out of game skills useful to the guild like web designing or movie making?: Nope, I dont.
List names and class of every character you played at least up to level 70+(Experience with other classes is a small plus)
Charmisnar, 80 hunter on emerald dream (my first toon)
Iamcharmis, 80 paladin (my 2nd toon and main for a long time).
Ninjapenguin, 80 warlock. Haven't played it that much, I havent even leveled it as it was given to me at a time where I had no account.
Charmis, 80 DK, played him as a main for quite some time as well, cleared icc10 + some hardmodes, and allmost all my pre-ICC experience is on this toon.
Charmismis (I'm really inventive when it comes to naming my toons eh?=)) my current main.
Do you know anyone from Results May Vary? Yes, my 2 mentors... I know Moomoojuju and Ljekar, Moomoo is the person I've known the longest whilst playing wow. He used to control the parental settings on my toon in exam periods, and he was the one who gave me the warlock account. He has also helped me out a lot when I started playing the druid. I'm also still chatting/playing with Ljekar almost everyday (mostly pvp'ing atm.). He used to be my guru when I started playing my DK =)
What do you expect from Results May Vary? I expect a mature guild, in which together we can enjoy every aspect of wow. I expect a bunch of good players where I can use and grow into my full potential in wow. I expect a guild that is based on raiding, and take this serious, but however can enjoy a good laugh when there is time for it as well.
Are you fine with respeccing to a spec of the guilds need? Yes, I love playing my drood, I'm very inexperienced as cat/bear though, however I love both resto and balance equally.
We raid Thursday and Monday 19:00-23:00. Does the times suit you? Perfectly.
How active do you plan to be? What days can you and cant you raid? I plan to be able to sign for and attend every single raid (except for special occasions ofc. The day before my exams, perhaps my moms birthday etc.).
Who controls your game time? (Wife/Girlfriend etc) Me, and only me.
Any additional information you need to tell us? Yes, I don't know if I missed anything about professions (apart from FA), but I'm currently a skinner+leatherworker. I'm intending to swap skinning for alchemy, and I'm actually farming on another toon for it atm. My leatherworking ain't maxed, but I do have the usefull self-enchants from it.
I also need you to know that I haven't been a moonkin for long, and as such only have limited raid experience with it. The time I did play it I enjoyed it a lot, and did good compared to the people I've been playing with. I still need some fine tuning. This being said, I also need to say that I know what I'm doing, I'm studying my class/specc a lot, and the orgrimmar dummy must hate me for taking it down quite a lot =) For some reason armory wont update. If you see me without Nibelung, it haven't updated my gear or specc.
Post a Picture of your UI (User interface): http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/8919/charmismisscreenie.jpg I've tweaked it just a tiny bit, but this is basically it atm.

Hello there!

Application is well written, and there are no flaws in your spec and glyphing. Your crit is, as you say, really low though, so i wondered what you have gemmed? Since armory hasnt updated yet, i can only guess you have already tried to go for hit and crit together with sp, to make up for the stats you lack? Also, i would suggest another weapon than Nibelung when you could use more stats, as Nibelung is both very RNG and situational depending on the different fights. I have it myself and its nice, but it just doesnt cut it for every fight.

Can you say something about your typical rotation, both what you're opening with in a fight, and what you focus on if it gets messy and requires lots of moving?

THATS MY TBC WARLOCK!!!!!!

Your hit is ok actually from memory. Thats my bad. I forgot its 4% from talents and not 3 >.< Sorry it was 3 am Sad

Your dps gear is better than i thought. Your resto gear is good enough to heal 25 HMs.



Really nice guy! Mature, Intelligent and likeable. Always makes friends and is vocal on Vent. Actually reads tactics too!

Picks things up quickly and tries his best. Ive known him all my raiding days and i trust him 100%. Spends far too much time on wow and not his Law Degree tho!

I cant comment on his play as druid cus ive not seen it. But the spam i get from his recount for his healing in 10 mans certainly shows the "right" numbers for the class and im sure over time the Pew pew would too.

Although not what id call raid ready and one to just jump right in and compete with Lunaire, perhaps this one is more of an ugly duckling we could nurture into a beautiful Swanchickentypething? God i just made myself feel a little sick there.

Yeah Lunaire is right on the Weapon. The reason its so good for druids is because its relatively easy to hit the haste and crit cap that the lack of stats on the weapon and chance to proc can make it quite strong. But until you reach those it can gimp you a little. You could swap your main and off from your resto set and see if there is much differecne. youd get a little crit back and some haste. Altho i know your haste is high from using the hybrid heler things.

I disagree. If i dont have to move and i get good rng i can compete cus our gear is pretty even, but oeverall when it comes to moving and play and keeping up the pressure you pwn me all the time Queen Moonkin. You are a very good chicken!

Charmis can be a bit of a queen too actually come to think of it Razz

I'm sorry for this late respond, but I was raiding 10 man with my current guild. I actually managed to get my hands on a token so I've replaced the resto legs with sanctified balance legs, which has gotten my hit a bit above cap, and my crit went up to 27,57 unbuffed in tauren form.

For rotation I, depending on the fight/tanks tps, pop on use trinket (currently badge hit one), Treants, FF, MF (for my idol to start stacking), Starfall, IS, then spam wrath till eclipse, switch to starfirespam, refresh moonfire whilst on starfirespam, then when I get the next eclipse I pop another IS and start spamming wrath. When moving I'm using typhoon, starfall (if its up, I usually pop it whenever its off CD depending on the fight), refreshing both dots and if I still need to move I apply another moonfire (hoping for a a grace proc to start spamming either wrath or starfire). If the boss is withing my reach at the pull I pop FF before trinket.

The staff indeed causes some RNG, but at fights where I'm not moving much I get some nice procs with my GCD wrath spam.
I havent actually tried my heroic lockjaw/Shriveled hearth, but I'm off to give the dummy another round of beatings =) If I get near the numbers I get whilst using Nibelung I'm quite sure its better for fights where I have to move a lot.

About gemming, I've gemmed potent ametrines(12 SP, 10 Crit) in all my yellow slots to get my crit rating closer to the softcap.

You've got up to date knowledge about rotations in fights, so thats good, however there are tiny things i would like to comment. Now, note that this isnt anything that will make or break anything, just consider it a tip, and you can see how it works for you. As it is now, im using two trinkets that automatically stack SP with spells (spyglass and phylactery), so i cant chose when it procs, but if i had a pop one i would time it a littlebit differently. I cant really say this or that will be better, as im too lazy to tear the numbers apart and get dirty with theorycrafting, but at least if you have trinkets to up your spellpower i would not pop them that early.

Reason is that a lunar eclipse will hugely benefit from this, with 100% crit bonus damage, while our dots mainly are fillers (and buffers for SF/Wr) and not damage dealers. I dont care about dots other than the upping damage of my eclipse spells, so i wouldnt bother popping a trinket for them, especially wasting so many cooldowns. As i said, i cant back this up with numbers, so you dont have to feel that im like "simon says" about that. Also, if i try to wait with starfall until i get the Earth&Moon up (locks dont use CoE cus of it, so it will up damage if i wait). And as ive been saying to Moomoo a dozen times, i hope you are actually hovering the boss when you drop treants and dont let them run a marathon before they are positioned Very Happy

Ive given up on trying to dummy myself into the answer of Nibelung vs. MH/OH as the damage differs every time (RNG is thy God). Mainly i use them for fights with little aoe damage (typical not Marrowgar, BQL etc) as they spend most time healing themselves or die instead of providing me with dps. They are a bit stupid after all :p Moving vs. not moving can be discussed though, it has a 2% proc rate now, iirc, and you cant know if it WILL proc when you move or not. Remember that if you have 120 more crit and haste that also makes you able to cast spells quicker, but in the long run those stats itself wont really change the numbers that much. And also you can time running, sort of, so that if you know the fight well, you know when to stop and cast, when you can finish a cast or not, and when to gtfo and so on.

Please dont take it as critique against you, i just like to discuss moonkins and everything about them because i am one by heart Wink

Hmm, i know im not a owl but i open with FF then wrath to get Earth and moon up and then apply dots. Its a tiny increase but the dots get buffed fromt he wrath. Sometimes i get lucky and proc lunar too and can go right into starfire spam. And yeah my trees like to run. Its how i keep em lean. Sad

My trinket procs too fast, so i prefer to get the dots out of the way and have full uptime bonus sp on the spells that actually does badass damage, but this is a matter of preferance and playstyle i guess Smile Also if you start with wrath and get lunar you waste a gcd of your eclipse! BUT, this is the first 5 seconds, and in a 10 minutes fight i doubt it will be the key to sucess over fail whether its done this or that way :p

The reason I use my trinkets that early is cuz it will boost both treants and starfall, and it will be up again sooner into the fight. Later in the fight I time it with lunar eclipse, and delay my starfall/treants for this. I don't know if this is what brings me the most damage outcome, so I guess I'll have to test it (meh, combat logs Smile ).
About Earth and Moon, I might've misunderstood this talent, but I thought the 6% dmg increase was passive, and only the 13% debuff was not. Usually I raid with an unholy DK which applies the same debuff, which he will most likely toss at the boss before I'm done with FF, Treants and Starfall. I'd like to shorten my ramp up time by tossing moonfire as soon as possible, so the outcome of my eclipse is larger.

About Nibelung, I consider em a steady dps increase when I have to move etc. (unless its heavy dmg so they die). Also, I was under the impression that they're healing themselves for 25% of the dmg they deal, and they never miss. I have only noticed my valkyrs spamming smite. Anyways I havent tried em on fights such as BQL, Sindragosa HC where theres loads of raid dmg, and haven't noticed the uptime from others using it. When I get home later I'll try to find some people using em on such fights through some logs to see the actual numbers they can pull (if they dont die before they toss a single spell).
