Trinkets and Legendaries will, of course, vary somewhat depending on content. Feel free to ask if you want to know what's in my bags.

Artifact level?
46, hopefully 47 by the time you are reading this. 36 in both offspecs.

What are our raiding times, and do they suit you?
Wednesday/Sunday conventional times, late evening on monday. Those are the times I'm used to raiding, give or take half an hour.

What lootsystem do we use?
A loot council.

What guilds were you in and reasons for leaving? (short description)
From the Ashes (EU-Frostwhisper). Guild drama, basically got backstabbed by the raid leader one week before NH release. The guild disintegrated and stopped raiding a few weeks later. That's the tl;dr anyway.
Unforeseen Consequences (EU-Frostwhsiper). I'm looking for another guild for a bit of a compound reason. If I'm raiding mythic I want to be challenged more. And since these guys were so nice to have me as a social, asked me to step in when someone had to take an extended break and there's a partial merge looking to happen, I don't want to take anyone's job as I didn't come here with the intent to claim my space.


Logs of your past raids
https://www.warcraftplogs.com/rankings/ ... 253/latest
I started playing this Paladin fairly late, had it set up to be mostly geared by NH release. So logs don't go back to EN/ToV progress. I did that on Blood DK/MM Hunter and I don't think I have those logs anymore.

This is from a little while ago, but not too much has changed. It's not an actual raid situation but should be clear enough.

What are the sites you use to keep up to date on your specc/class?
As an easily accessible basic resource: icy-veins. But mostly the class discord. Occasionally check warcraftlogs for indicators and wowhead for item data.

Info about alts (if any)
None you can count, really. I am very comfortable on Blood DK but I ditched it because (certainly at the time) there were too many glaring holes in coverage and I wanted a tank that was more solidly prepared for any kind of encounter. Also have a MM hunter that I completely stopped playing when 7.1 hit because an already somewhat tedious spec became impossible to enjoy. Both have been virtually untouched for months.

How did you hear about our guild, what made you apply?
Was browsing the WoW forums, did a quick search for 'tank' and your guild name stood out. (Aluren is one of my favourite magic cards, even though I haven't played that game in years)

Describe the hardest PVE boss you killed (ever) - how long did your guild work on it, what was hard, what was good about the fight etc..
Well.... controversial answer I guess (because its not a WoW boss): Revan Hardmode in SW:ToR. This was a 5 phase (+2 unique transition phases) fight that was incredibly tightly tuned and was filled with 1-shot mechanics. And SW:Tor did not allow any addons. The best you could do was overlay a stopwatch to try and keep track of certain timed abilities. As a result most bosses were technically much much easier than today's WoW bosses. But not Revan. It took wow vanilla kind of times for him to die and additional months for more guilds to kill him. On a more personal level, I'd been a decent to good mmo player in the past, this took me to a higher level. Here is a link if you are curious.
As for WoW, has to be Lich King. Should've been Yogg but I was in nowhere near a good enough guild (and to be fair, probably wasnt near a good enough player to be in one) to do the hard modes.

Anything else that could convince us that you are a good addition to our raids.
I'm engaged and eager to look for improvement. I try to take note of my mistakes and learn from them.

Your plans for the next 6 months - will you be AFK on vacation or take a break from raiding?
I do not have any significant plans. I am, however, expecting a death in the family in the next half year or so.

Do you know anyone in the guild?
No, not yet ;)

Hey there,
Unfortunately we're not currently looking for a tank. Best of luck finding a guild for you :)
