Retribution is main and Off is Protection, used to be other way around so ik both specs well
How comfortable are you with your offspec in raid environments?
What Prior raiding experience do you have? (Please elaborate)
I have been a semi Hardcore raider for many years since WotLK but i took a break at start of WoD due to old Guild falling apart. We were 8/14 Heroic SoO before guild started disbanding due to poor leadership. I am ready to start hardcore raiding again. I always come prepared and stay at the hight of Knowledge of my class and specs. I am currently Solo gearing and RNG is not my friend so far.
Why do you want to join Defying Gravity? What makes you think you will be a good fit for our guild?
I am mature, 25 years old, married life is coming together well and raid times are an easy fit for me. I am laid back and have a big sense of humor, but at raid time i get down to business

What position are you seeking within the guild?

Do you know anyone in the guild? If so, who, and how?
Why are/did you leave your most recent guild?

What distinguishes you from other players of your class?
I Stay current with all sims and theories of Ret and Prot pally's and i also do some of my of trials, I do not just go with what someones says is the best talents or stats i try and test them for myself and i find some stats are better than other for me and maybe not someone else. I try to be a social member of the guild and i also try to contribute as much as i can. I am loyal to a fault and i am dependable i will make every raid day unless circumstance detain me otherwise, i will always give some sort of notice.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
What Guilds, if any, have you raided with in the past?
Hyperion, Nordrassil, was there so long don't remember other guilds names.
As a raider, what do you feel your biggest weakness is?
My biggest weakness is sometimes i tunnel vision at the end of a hard boss but i am practicing on fixing that, Not that i stand in things just that i focus solely on my rotation and maxing out dps that i push beyond what i am supposed to and sometimes don't back away fast enough for some mechanics. But like i said i am practicing on fixing that and doing pretty well.
Please post a link to your recent logs below
I unfortunately do not have any logs due to solo Gearing this xpac.
What do you do to prepare for an encounter? What outside resources do you use to research your class
I use Noxxic, Icy Veins and Paladin Forums, Generally i use them for a starting place and attempt trials of my own on my free time. As for preparedness, I bring flasks food carts, and Potions for Pulls. I also try to be on 15-30 min before raid in case i forgot something.
We use a Loot Council system. Do you understand that we distribute loot with the guild's interests in mind?
I believe it is a great way to distribute loot best but also i fear for favoritism at the same time during.
We raid 6 hours a week and because of that we expect very high attendance from our players - is making every raid night an issue for you? Excluding extraordinary circumstances, of course.
We use Ventrilo to communicate. Is this a problem?
Do you have a working microphone, and headset?
Yes I do Wireless Turtle beach headset
How does your computer handle 20 man raid settings? What is your ping/ fps like during a raid?
I run the game on high settings in raid Ultra outside of raid and i run about 67-78 FPS I do not lag ever unles a severe storm interupts signal on internet but havent had it happen yet.
Our guild has high standards for how our members act, and are perceived by the server community. Why do you feel you can represent our guild well?
I am social and always eager to help a fellow paladin, i try to make friends with other paladins from other guilds to see how they gear stat and talent learning new ways to better myself and others.
Other than raiding, what do you like to do in game?
I like to build my garrison, I like to do a litlle of everything. I am not the best PVPer but i Try it when friends ask.
How did you hear about our guild?
What is your favorite Color?
Do you have any questions for us?
Seeing as i Am making a large commitment to server change for your guild i would like to ask if a raid spot is available for me or are you a guild that likes to bench people for certain encounters, I have been i raids like that and i sat almost the entire raid, don't really wanna do that again.
