    Today at 04:28:52 PM
  • Caillenne: lol that was exactly what I was thinking tbh. Hopefully it's not like that though. I wonder what they'll do for DKs and Monks if it is T4 inspired though.
    Today at 04:10:29 PM
  • Sholdice: my thoughts exactly sulf, inb4 rest of the sets are inspired by t4
    Today at 03:31:22 PM
  • Sulfonic: pally tier looks like an updated version of T4. Uninspired in my opinion.

  • Taterz: Be quiet! I'm getting buffs! Altough, I'll admit its pretty lame. A raid wide temporal shield would have been much more cool.

A few things...

As for Unleashed Life, I use it before healing rain obviously, but since I am using Conductivity I have to use it considerably less than you or Kiraja

Unleash life gives a 30% increase to not just healing rain - you could have used it to give 30% more healing to a chain heal or another single target heal.  You can also use it for riptide, I try and give an Unleashed Life + Riptide for kiters.   There is no reason you shouldn't be using UL just because you are using Conductivity.

Quote
What you're seeing on the Thok fight is me using my Primal Fire for dps usually, and I use my Earth for a damage reduction if I'm running out for Thok during poision phase.

Earth elemental is usually only about 500k dps, but he didn't show up on your DPS meter, so it looks like you were busy healign and forgot to send it to attack Thok.  You mention you use the Earth Elemental for its damage reduction, but you only get the 20% damage reduction if you *do* reinforce channel it (which gives the increased healing as well) - it is part of the pet action bar you get when you select the talent.  Maybe you weren't aware of this, but you don't get the bonuses from Primal Elementalist unless you select them after the elemental is summoned.

I also noted you seem to have quite a bit of a survivability problem - your overall survivability was 76.6% over that entire raid night, compared to about ~95% or better for the rest of the raid team.  The previous raid night for Garrosh progression, you also had the worst survivability in the entire raid (also 76%) - on most of the pulls, you were first raider down.  Any reason for this?  What would you do to improve survivability?

For the UL I tend to not waste the GCD for UL during stacked phase unless it's for HR because it throws off my timing for my casts and I'll have to delay for a screech. Other fights I could improve it for GHW's or CH, never really use it on a RT.

I do know that reinforce has to be used, but as I said not the greatest at maximizing that one. Survivability, Protector's looks like lack of heals during Rook's transition while we stacked on Gloom. Sha I died at the end of the fight to the stuff on the ground and the periodic tick just happened at the right time. IJ was a Chain of Laser Burn, Borer Drills and Ricochet, being stacked as much as we are, we take that chance of people being hit by Ricochet a lot. Shamans looks like I ate a tomb, probably one of my worst fights as healing with a disc priest makes it boring and I just zone out on this fight. Nazgrim looks like he hit me in the face also seems to be when we were resetting the boss. Malkorok I was clearing orbs when our disc priest dispelled himself and I was too close. The second Thok wipe it looks like I let my HR drop so that was my issue. First Thok wipe was a wipe already, A lot of the Garrosh wipes are due to Adds not dying before they become empowered and beating on us, first wipe looks like Garrosh meleed me somehow. A lot of it had to do with our strat for that fight, first desecrate we stacked and cleaved it down, and if the adds weren't stacked properly we would wipe to the weapon not getting cleaved. I feel like is used my DR's pretty well, but some deaths were probably my fault it's been so long now that I can't give specifics.

Better timing of SR and AS would help survivability

What is your guild history this expansion?  You went into detail before this expansion, but not this one.

Also, I know Azralon is a Brazil server, and your current guild raids in Portuguese, will it be an issue switching to an English raiding guild?

As you've raided in 10M, how do you feel you will make the jump to 25M?  Would you change gear/star priorities when switching to 25m raiding?  You mention Holy isn't great for 10M, are there fights you would go Holy for in 25M?
I first joined a random guild that was farming normal HOF, then I joined a 10man guild composed of 2 of my best buddies unfortunately the server was mainly focused on pvp making it almost impossible to find suitable replaces in case someone did not show up thus we decided it would be best to change servers.Then i joined a 25man guild were i progressed until heroic primordius excluding durumu, however they already had many issues with the guild mainly an extremely bad attitude towards their members which made raiding there very unpleasant.I changed to another 25m guild where i progressed until lei-shen, then due to time issues (the time they raided was not very nice, 2pm to 6pm on weekends) and due to the fact my friends manage to remake a solid group which I am raiding until this day we killed leishen, ra-den and hc garrosh.Unfortunately people do not wanna merge with other guilds nor recruit people for wod so it was agreed we would all part our own separate ways, some of the members there are already inclined on joining arathian knights.

I have raided in english before in Europe, it will be a non issue to switch to English as I said I live and go to college in Canada so my English is very clear to understand.

Fights I would definetly consider going holy are immerseus, malkorok, thok probably the other ones I think disc holds its own equaly.

For your resto spec, why did you chose the Conductivity talent?  Would you ever choose either Rushing Streams or Ancestral Guidance?  Which fights would you switch, and why?

What is your stat priority for resto?  Which haste break point do you use?  How much spirit do you run and why?  How often do you get use out of your TC glyph?  

I looked at your logs and you are not using Unleash Life nearly enough.  On Thok for example, you used Unleash 11 times in a 7 min fight.  By comparison, myself and Kiraja used it 19/21 times on a kill that was nearly a minute shorter (http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/ywhbG42xT9ZR6AXP#fight=35&type=healing).  Any reason for this?  What is the best use for Unleash Life?

I also see that you have the Primal Elementalist talent, yet when you cast your fire/earth elemental, you aren't empowering either for the 10% healing buff - any reason for this?

Seeing as you raid in 10M, how do you feel you will make the jump to 25M?  



Here is previous shaman app: http://www.staticraid.com/index.php?topic=3530.msg63227#msg63227


As of right now I only really heal Thok and Conductivity allows me more freedom with my spell choice since I just extend my HR with CH, GHW or Surge. Also I basically just gear for Thok so I'm not at a specific haste BP I'm at enough haste to where I'm comfortable with getting my casts off in between screeches. Typically I would run with the 8900 BP, but since I'm only healing Thok I'm at the 10513 Earthliving, actually a bit past it. As for Unleashed Life, I use it before healing rain obviously, but since I am using Conductivity I have to use it considerably less than you or Kiraja. As for empowering, I could be better at it. What you're seeing on the Thok fight is me using my Primal Fire for dps usually, and I use my Earth for a damage reduction if I'm running out for Thok during poision phase. Could improve on this I know, but like I said I rarely resto anymore. Also I see you use RT spam on Thok where I prefer to CH, especially on 10 man it is needed a lot before each screech. I could adapt my healing style if needed for 25 man as well.

Stat priority for me is Int>spirit(11k)>Haste(to BP)>Crit>Haste past bp=mastery. As I've gotten more gear I've dropped more Spirit in favor of Haste and Crit.

As for TC I use it on Thok during transition and it extends my HR to LB so I can easily recoup my mana, and some times on IJ I use it during the non Siege Phase because disc preists and resto druids snipe heals.

As for using AG or RS, I would use AG for Malk for sure I know some 25 man Shamans use AG for Thok and if it was required I would as well. As for Rushing Streams I would use it on Immerseus,  Pride on 25 man since I believe it's a more spread encounter, Galakras since the last phase is the only really good phase for Conductivity, but I could also have AG for that fight. IJ I really prefer Conductivity here as well for siege phase since we just range it, and while we aren't in Siege we stay pretty stacked in general. Shamans, I use Conductivity and CH off of the active tank up top, but that fight would probably be better for RS. Nazgrim is a RS fight for sure. Spoils if I ever healed it would be RS. Siege probably RS, Paragons, RS, and Garrosh either AG or RS.

I really prefer 25 man, and since we are all going to 20 man soon anway it doesn't really matter people have to adapt or just fall off. We never had a stable enough roster when we were 25 man so after we killed Horridon in ToT we switched to 10 man and that's how we've stayed. At this point we have 3 of the 10 raiders that killed Paragons with us left. So instead of being done with the tier we are re-progressing on Siegecrafter. So moving into a stable 25 man instead of my 10 man would be very welcomed.

@Icchi SimC won't run with that data, is there a specific way you have to enter because without it I'm still getting haste>mastery>crit. I did drop some haste now that I finally got Kardis's Totem since I couldn't be at the soft cap without BBOY.

Static Application
All About You
What is your character's name, server, race, class, and specialization?

Papillonmyu, Azralon-US, Blood Elf,Priest,Discipline


Link us your advanced Armory. That's right, I said your ADVANCED. Advanced! ADVANCED! LINK YOUR ADVANCED ARMORY (log out in PvE gear):
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/azralon/Papillonmyu/advanced

Do you understand that you will NOT be allowed into the guild if you have a foreign character in your name, or if your name is offensive?
Besides beeing pretty weird my name is ok.

What is your age, gender, first name, and what time zone and state/province do you live in?
23
João Pedro
Male
I live in Ottawa, Canada (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Can you meet 100% of our raids (Wed/Thu/Mon 8:30pm-12:30am Eastern? (invites go out around 8:20pm, and a raid can be extended up to 12:45am on occasion)
Yes its more or less the same shedule I am running at the momemt.


When a new tier is released in WoD, we plan on raiding an additional day (Tuesday) during the FIRST week that Mythic raiding is available (effectively 3ish times a year), and we want people to be aware of this change. Will this be a problem for you? You'll have notice and we don't raid any additional nights at any other point during the year.

I understand, I agree and it is a non issue.

Do you foresee anything preventing you from dedicating 100% to our raids? Such as military branches, work, school, or family?

No.

What do you wish to gain out of joining Static? What do you bring to the table that someone else may not be able to?

I like the thrill of competing for a high ranking and killing bosses prior of them beeing nerfed and seeing all heroic content when its relevant, my interest in joining static is raiding with like minded people that will give their very best on raids as I give mine.I am a pretty relaxed individual who sees loot only as a means to an end


The Informational Section
How far did you progress in previous expansions, WAS IT RELEVANT (i.e. did you clear it before another tier of content was released), and on which character (Specific dates/achievements and an armory link are preferred, as people can easily lie about this part)?

All that I will say here i cannot prove, why? Beacause I used to live in ireland couple of years ago so I played in the european servers.As I dont play them a while the armory is disabled for them.

I started rsiding in wrath joined a 25m guild and we killed the lich king in the last week prior to the expansion when we got the uber stats from cataclysm and dps sky rocketed, i played a death knight at the time.Atough I was alot pvp centered having reached duelist with my priest whom i dedicated solely for that purpose
In cata i did the first tier of raiding as a shaman healer we cleared halfus and chimeraon hc on 10man but then the guild fell apart 10man was really hard and people did not wanna wipe countless times so they stopped showing up.This is when I took a break from wow.I returned on dragon soul cleared normal with some rl friends and stopped playing again.



What is your current progression in Mists of Pandaria?
I came
At the end of the first tier of raiding asside normal sha of fear i didnt do anything relevant.

Throne of Thunder was cleared full heroic including the I tought he was hard achivment from ra-den

Siege of Orgrimmar is fully cleared as well this can all be confirmed in my armory


While we supply various raiding consumables, are you always prepared by having a stack of flasks, potions, and food for your respective class/role?
I am an alchemist I always have my own consumales, for if needed.

Breaking Down Your Character
We need to see a WOL report from one of your previous raid nights:
Here is the world of logs page of my guild you can view any of my logs there progression or not its all in there. http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/144316/


We need to see a screen shot or a video of your UI DURING RAID COMBAT, not sitting around in Orgrimmar (hint, LFR works wonders):
I have an old video of me killing heroic Dark Animus I was testing fraps and wanted to see what I could do.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DL6Rouj0wT0
https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/1132x637q90/835/s9yc.jpg

Assuming you run your own sims, explain your process of optimization, AND the resources you use to remain at the top of your game:
Generally I have a set basis, that is the how2priest forum, where I get most of my theorycraft.
Then the rest is a process of “opnion”

if mana regen > 2x mana usage
reforge spirit out
else
reforge spirit in

if need a support deeps follow priority
crit > haste >mastery>spirit

if needing a complete disc
crit>mastery/spirit>haste





With 25 man raids, spots are very competitive and generally are given to the highest performing players (barring raid comps). Are you willing to compete for your spot? Are you willing to sit at times? We treat our recruits with respect and we believe skill is always greater than seniority.
With that being said, we HIGHLY value people who can play ALL specs of their class. Do you feel you're capable of performing at this level? If not, why?
Altought I am a healer by nature and prefer healing above all I can play shadow if given the opportunity and the gear to build an offset as I have before. I tend to switch between holy and disc at times but holy underperforms in 10mans so I dont use it a lot.


Those Questions That Just Have To Be Answered
What PC hardware do you currently use for 25 man raiding (CPU, GPU, RAM, etc.)?

AMD-FX 8150
16GB of RAM
AMD Radeon 7990 double ghosting.

Post an image of a speedtest.net result with the host server being in Chicago (since that is where Arthas is hosted):
http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3441991060
Have you ever used Mumble? If not, please be aware that we use it, and you'll be required to use it on every raid night.
Yeah my current guild uses mumble I am very familiar with the program.
Do you have a WORKING microphone that gives ZERO feedback? If you blast our ears in Mumble, we probably will not accept you.
My mic is pristine quality from razor

What type of authenticator do you use to protect your account? Is it on your phone or a standalone device? Be aware that our guild ranks REQUIRE this device, and you CANNOT be promoted without one due to in-game requirements.
I have an autenticator it is on my Iphone.

What is the earliest date you can transfer to Arthas? Are you SURE of this date?
If acepted I would have to part on good terms with my friends so as soon I have a confirmation of something I would need to do the preparations.I cannot give an exact date but I would probably attempt to be ready at the start of a new lockout meaning a tuesday.
Did anyone recruit you (if so please provide a name) or did you apply on your own?
Kiraja sent me a mail saying you were looking for healers for WOD as my current group is gonna break in the next expansion I tought it would be a good a idea, I have been talking alot to Kiraja and he answered most of my questions about static.
We'd love to know whose stream you enjoy watching more - The Great and Powerful BRUTALL or The Audacious and Vicarious STARLYNE?

Haha unfortunately I don't tend to watch streams ever only videos of recorded fights and POVS of my class if I need to.
Anything else you wish to add?
Hope you like my application and thanks for contacting me.

Default SimCraft also doesn't properly use UF so the data is skewed. If you read the single target priority list you'll see that the sim isn't reapplying flame shock before using unleash and is sometimes using it during the UF which is a big nono. This plus earth shocking during UF means you are wasting the duration of UF and wasting gcds on things other than lightning bolt/lava burst. Fitting that extra LB/LVB in will be a much better dps gain for mastery. You always want to review and modify the sim before you run it.

T   27.71   unleash_elements,if=talent.unleashed_fury.enabled&!buff.ascendance.up
U   0.00   spiritwalkers_grace,moving=1,if=buff.ascendance.up
V   101.36   lava_burst,if=dot.flame_shock.remains>cast_time&(buff.ascendance.up|cooldown_react)
W   14.94   flame_shock,if=ticks_remain<2
X   0.00   elemental_blast,if=talent.elemental_blast.enabled
Y   27.29   earth_shock,if=buff.lightning_shield.react=buff.lightning_shield.max_stack
Z   5.01   earth_shock,if=buff.lightning_shield.react>3&dot.flame_shock.remains>cooldown&dot.flame_shock.remains<cooldown+action.flame_shock.tick_time

If that is indeed correct I'll run another Sim, but I'm fairly sure that Tickle would have imput this into her Sim. Ill let you know the results of the Sim afterword.
Can you explain to me the reasoning behind this then?
Why do you say haste performs over mastery on single target fights?
What makes it better?

Also, as you've mentioned you've applied three times to us.
Why are adamant about joining <Static> over somebody else?


http://imgur.com/Fv5Aodo
http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3442018533

The haste build on a fight like Garrosh where I'm in the ranged group and moving a lot having higher haste is great for allowing you to get LvB off and move quicker, and you only GCD cap under the effects of your Meta and BL. At my gear level I'm missing around 19% mastery from a mastery build so a 19% chance to overload, over a .2 second reduction without the meta gem up so it allows more hard casts instead of more overloads.

I like Static because it's a good guild that has goals like mine, to progress on a short schedule.
