Kinda ddnt say why i quit my last guild in MoP. Basically i bought a house with my partner, got her knocked up and had a daughter:)

my current guild Pandamonium,  is a casual one and have migrated to a more populous server

Personal Information

Name : Tony

Age : 36

Where are you from? :London

Why would you like to join Exception? : Multiple reasons. My most enjoyable time in wow was raiding with C9 in our ZA bear runs and in TBC and during firefighter progress in wrath until C9 quit:(. For the first time in 10 years im able to maybe make 3 days a week and whilst im a father now and have other responsibilities, it still annoys me that ive not achieved as much in wow as i'd have liked.

What do you expect of us? :just to clarify. i in no way believe i or my class(as dps) are currently capable of offering you anything over your current roster but i was once a very good player and i would like to be part of a good team once again and hopefully achieve the level i once played at.

What can we expect from you? : An experienced raider. Mature and reliable. IF C9 remembers me, i was the Shadowpriest mana battery Erador in TBC(BT - SP until that shit paladin healer got the legendary and the loot whores went emo and quit DS) who kept revian topping the meters, i was the Arms Armour Penetration geared(ofc) warrior Onesoldier(or Hulkamaniac i cant remember tbh) in Mop when you returned to raiding after your childs birth and i remember us getting ever so close to doing firefighter before you called it quits as i believe darksun at the time just wasnt good enough

Why did you leave your old guild? :Alterac Deviants - Ravencrest. after C9 quit i decided at that time i would focus on playing with the best people i could despite having low attendance(due to shift work for 10 years) and basically i would play anywhere at the highest level i could. I was able todo some cool stuff in that time such as yogg 0 before any nerfs, final boss in throne was amazing as a demo guild at the time and my last guild we killed Garrosh before any nerf to cement there place in the top 200 but despite these things work always got in the way and i decided to quit after garrosh farm started to buy a place with my partner.

Battletag : Onesoldier #2671

Character information

Name : Freef

Class and Spec : Monk - Wind Walker

Weapon traits:67

Is this your main character? :Yes

Please give us a brief explanation of your rotation or spell priority :Well i didnt raid nighthold so i never got the T19 but despite that i play serenity. I macro rsk with serenity and then basically try and get as many as possible in my serenity window whilst ofc firing off off my artifact weapon which i believe needs to have no more than roughly 16 seconds on it for serenity to reset it and this use in the window, must admit interupting FoF to spam rsk doesnt feel good but with t19 would probably play better. basic rotation is artifact - rsk - fof - chi builder - and bk. i run chest so i generally fire it off between 15-20 stacks and try to clear it before i go into serenity. In a standard fight i just basically use EE as im out of energy and dont have serenity coming up or the stacks on my chest arent high. If im outside of boss range a lot, ie told to kite kj orbs or w/e then i will run chi orbit to help keeps my stacks up. leggos i use almost exclusively atm are the chest and bracers.

Are you comfortable in playing your off spec if needed? : I'll be honest i rolled this monk to heal.... and i just dont get it, its like being a passenger in a speeding car, just wrong. Or im just too stupid to heal. I enjoyed tanking in the old days but my experience is limited and when we started farming more ZA bear runs C9 agreed to let me tank it once at which point my ISP exploded and i was never allowed to tank again :E

Link to raidlogs if possible (ie warcraftlogs)  : I'm a casual and only raid in my guilds saturday night fun runs. Its awful. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/32571/5/# for my lock when i last raided at a high level, btw we had 1 good kiter on garrosh and on that parse i ended up 11th in europe at that date.

Raiding information

What is the raiding accomplishment you are the most proud of? : Tough one. yogg zero felt amazing and was so fun todo. Garrosh was meh but at the time i enjoyed trying to max dps and parse well so i enjoyed it for that(as destro it was fun). Last boss throne was utterly amazing with demo. But my most fun time and proudest achievment was probably farming 10 bears with c9/ciq/Iammean(/Rawahahah)/revian/grimgor(i think grim was there) and i cant remember the others(was draug in the grouo or was he too slow:D ) . No bitching just full concentration and we where able to show how good we where and not be held back by some of the other players in DS at the time:(. That being said killing the dog boss in Black temple after some wipes after c9's missus went in to labour and we had to stop mount hyjal and do bt instead, was pretty epic. i cant remember the priest lady officer's name in DS but it was one of the only times i heard her speak and she asked us to concentrate and kill the boss in honour of your child and we killed it on the first pull. That felt like downing a final boss was a pretty surreal moment

Can you make all of our raid days and times? : I understand you start at 6:30 GMT? sundays should be fine but if my 1 year old is playing up i might not make it on time

Do you have TS3 and a working microphone? : yes

We require you to have the addon EPGP (for loot distribution) and Exorsus Raid Tools. Please confirm you have these downloaded and working : yes

Please post a screenshot(Can be uploaded on imgur.com) of your current ingame UI, if you have weakauras/Tellmewhen then please show those also : Ive always ran close to default to not be one of those people that goes nuts when an update comes along and breaks things. I've raided since TBC and all i need is boss timers in my eye line and a big WA+sound for any major dps procs. Back in mop snapshotting dots was a major dps increase so i usually ran wa's that showed an abilities hidden CD so i knew when to hold back on trinket/major cd's etc. I dont have a setup like that for my monk as i dont feel its needed but maybe an experienced monk might find it useful for holding off on serenity until something pops off, but with the relic making the cd so low it feels best to use on Cd and for as many serenitys in as possible

Additonal information

Where did you hear about us? Spoke to C9 very briefly after bumping into him in a random ashran in Warlords and now my current casual guild has migrated and for the first time in 10 years i am working normal hours it feels like i might be able to raid again IF i can get back to the level i want to be

Is there anything you'd like to add? I dont think me as WW monk can offer you great things this tier or maybe even the next, but i'd like to be a part of a true raiding guild and im a huge C9 fanboy^^ and ive always respected him for not kicking me after flirting with aspire and i believe i was the only DS player to not instantly be kicked for talking to them(or rather they approached me Loe/Ciq).

I am a dad and my family will always come first, but i remember hanslock and annabelle where part of the darksun backup raiding group and i feel like i could be an asset in a similar role, although i am 100% a dps whore. my goal's in raiding have always been the same. do more dps than the person playing the same spec as me to prove im number one. Because of this i usually have a great attitude on farm as i see it as another oppurunity to parse higher, which is why i get mad in guilds where once a boss is killed they start to slack. C9 always seemed to have the same attitude as me which is chain pull in a smart and smooth way and focus on boss's. basically dont fuck about and waste our time:D

Soz for waffling btw, basically my casual guild is dead and my daughter is 1 now and im working a day job and id like to spend my evenings raiding at a high level once again:D
