What's your name?
My name is Stian Falkeid.
What's your age?:
Where are you from?:
What are you applying for?(Raider or social):
I am applying for a raider spot.
How many AP traits do you have in your main spec?:
I currently have 51 (80% 52). Reason for not being 54 yet is because I was in New Zealand for a month, and forgot to do my artifact knowledge, so I fell abit behind ^^
How many AP traits do you have in your off spec(s)?:
I have 28 traits in resto, and 27 traits in guardian. Pretty much only for the 3rd main trait for mythic+.
How high is your ilvl in your offspec(s)?:
My Guardian ilvl is 897 equipped. And resto is 896.
Self Character Evaluation
How would you rate your gear for the current content?:
My gear currently is pretty good for current content. Need a different legendary asap and I'm set!
How could you improve it and what do you think you lack?:
If I get the legendary ring, that would be grand, as it synergises extremely well with the legendary head due to it's haste. And the mastery also got greatly buffed in 7.1.5, so the ring is now BiS. And I don't really have a good 2nd legendary, only mobility ones. Boots are fairly good for Lay on hands in m+ and progress raid, but not optimal DPS wise.
I am also spamming CoS for a better Guileful Intruder Handguards drop, because I already have a good boot drop, and that set is BiS for balance at the moment. So legendary ring (maybe wrists aswell for AoE situations), and a new glove, and the wrists from Krosus, and I'm all set :) Rest is just WF and mythic upgrades etc.
Combat logs of your character (World of Logs link):
Explain atleast 2 specific logs! What did you do well here and where could you improve?
As you probably noticed, my percentile on Trilliax is generally low. But this is because I eat a ton of cake compared to others, and seing as this boss is nothing like a DPS race, I don't care about my dps at all. And I do like cakes. So yeah.
I have 100% uptime on the extra buff you get, for when there is more adds for extra efficency. What I could improve here is to not get killed by others a couple of times :D
This one is not something I want to explain, but rather something abit funny for when memekin happened, so I tested it out and it turned out pretty well.
Are you able to raid Wednesdays/Thursdays/Mondays with us? (20.00 -24.00 Server Time):
These are perfect raiding times.
When did you start playing WoW:
I started playing early TBC.
What classes did you play in the past:
My first character was a Protection Paladin, I played this up until late Mists of Pandaria, when I rerolled Guardian Druid. In Warlords or Draenor I rerolled Boomkin, which I still play this day.
I have a Blood DK alt, Fury Warrior, MW monk, which I play regularly to try and keep up to speed for raids aswell. But I have basic knowledge of every class atleast.
Guild history and why did you leave:
I was in Iron Edge on my first server Dunemaul from TBC - WoTLK, which were server rank 1-2. I don't have any logs from back then unfortunately, but we managed to get Tribute to Insanity in TotGC back then which is the only proper achievement I had from Wotlk. We got ICC #3, behind CATASTROPHE and Ravenous (Catastrhophe now world top 100 or so).
In WoD I was in Raging Nemesis, where I was the Guild Master. That guild had been around since early vanilla, 12+ years now, and it has been a hardcore guild clearing things as 3-5 on server every expansion and tier, up to MoP, where they decided to go abit more semicore. I joined them at this point. At the end of MoP I went into the army and had to take a break from raiding.
When I came back for Warlords, the guild has taken a more casual approach to things, and we stopped aiming for top on the server. The leadership diminished over time, so I stepped up, and in December last year I got the GM role. This was half way through HFC, and we haven't started progress yet, so I started getting the group together to start. I recruited some proper good people, and we got to 10/13M first few weeks. However I lost 5-6 of my core raiders, and this set us back a whole lot, so we had to rebuild again, and this happened 3 times throughout the year. But eventually we got the 13/13M. I left the guild, because I was the sole leader of the guild and I did literally everything from a management perspective, and it got abit to much. And my goal is to be as hardcore as I can be, without having to worry to much. So I gave back GM to the former GM, and they have now stopped raiding seriously.
The guild I am in now is Confused. It's been one of the top guilds on server, and everythings gone great up to the last couple of weeks, where we started losing many people due to various reasons. The leadership in this guild has seemingly started caring less, and pretty much lost faith in rebuilding as we currently do not have a full team. So this is why I am stepping down, as I want to raid.
I never leave a guild, as long as it's "operative" ^^
Raiding and achievements
What is your raiding experience - be detailed - which bosses have you killed in which difficulty when it was current content ( up to the current Legion patch ):
TBC - Only Kharazhan full clear.
Wotlk - Every raid on hardest difficulty cleared
Cataclysm - Every raid on hardest difficulty cleared
MoP - Took a break from raiding here, so didn't really do anything extreme here, did ahead of the curve on the first raid, but stopped after.
Warlords of Draenor - Came back mid HFC from break, and cleared 13/13M. Was to late for BRF.
Legion - 7/7M in Emerald Nightmare. 2/3M in Trials of Valor. Currently 3/10M in Nighthold due to problems with guild, so we stopped at almost killing Krosus. I am fully able to due the remaining bosses as I know them very well :)
And a few last questions
What motivates you in WoW :
My goal in WoW, is to be the best player as I can be. I strive to improve every day, and I work hard to achieve my goals. I hope to settle down in a stable and serious enviourment, and climb up the ladders when it comes to every PvE content.
What sets you apart from the rest?:
I am a generally funny and social guy. I am online a lot and I love to do random shit. My humor is extremely varied, so everything goes tbh. And I will not get offended if you assume my gender. I know it's hard to do, but I can guarantee you that I will be a good addition to the team! :) I do everything in my power to be up to date with my class, with class discords and trough other boomkin friends. I am not the guy you "notice" during the raids, who does alot of mistakes etc, as I focus a whole bunch during raids. I also stream to a wild crowd on twitch for that mad exposure. 4Head.
Tell us about yourself abit, who exactly are you behind the character(+/-3 things to keep it short)?:
My current occupation is as a "regional campaign coordinator". This means I get sent tasks etc from big companies who wants their products, events or just anything promoted. And I send people (currently have 25 working for me in my region), around to do these things while keeping track of everyone, where they are and what they are doing. So yea, I'm the dude who send people around to your local shopping markets to have stands where they give you free chocolate!
I have a huge interest for traveling around the world, exploring stuff and just general wildlife. I guess this started in the army, where I had the best time of my life. When I served, I got promoted for exceptional perfromance in the daily military life, and I got in charge of the velfare on the camp. I had a budged of 210,000$ to spend on the soldiers, so I took them trips, events, got them drunk, and whatnot. I was in charge of teaching up new recruits for basic tasks. But my main role was to play the "bad guy" against the Special Forces during their practice. I have countless broken noses, a few fingers and ribs broken during those practices. But I am a huge adrenalin junkie, so it was extremely fun, I also hit the frontpage of our largest newspaper. Twice. Because of it lmao.
I recently got back from a month in New Zealand, so now I'm slightly darker white IRL :))
Why would you join "The Reckless" and do you have anything to add? :
After some research, The Reckless seems to be the perfect guild for me, as you guys have been stable over a long period, and it seems to still be that way, while you are doing it nicely with progress.
Here is how my UI looks (picture from EN, but still the same)
As for anything to add, I do make WoW videos, mostly bosskills. So if you want a "better" view of how I am as a player, I have some PoVs here -
The Nighthold - A world of warcraft movie. (3 first mythic bosses)
Thank you for your time! Hope to see you all in-game soon :)
My bnet is Untankable#2998 if you want a closer chat, or stalk me on facebook if you prefer that lul. If you want me to provide vouches, I have some good ones if that would help.
