1. About You

Please state your

1.1 First Name / Age / Location:
Derik / 20 / Brisbane

1.2 Usual Playtimes:
I'm on pretty much daily. Mostly at night between 6 and 12.

1.3 Do you know anyone in SC? (Online or in Real Life)

1.4 How did you hear about SC?
Your recruitment post on the official WoW forums.

1.5 Are you applying to SC to Raid/PvP or Socialize? Or a combination? Please specify your intentions and also your goals in WoW as a whole
All of the above, with a focus on raiding at this time. My goal in WoW is to experience all the content the game has available, and to have fun. Also looking for a fun and active community to do this in. I started playing MMOs to enjoy a game alongside other people.

1.6 Any other information you feel comfortable sharing, the more we know about you the more it helps us with our decision! (optional)
Only that I'm a very competitive person, I like moving forward, and as such I constantly look for ways to make this happen, both on a personal and group level.

2. About Your Characters

2.1 List your character(s) Name / Class / Race / Level / Armory Link:
(Please try to stay logged out in your PvE gear)
Dracallus / Mage / Gnome / 85 / http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/b ... lus/simple

2.2 What guilds have you been in? And why have you left or intend on leaving them?
None come to mind. Was in Improve for 2 weeks before it fell apart, this is where all my raiding experience comes from.

2.3 Are you the original owner of your account?

3. Raiding

If you have no intentions of ever doing any serious raiding, feel free to skip this section.

3.1 Our raids usually begin at 7:30pm AEST and run up to midnight. Place an asterix next to those days you can make.


3.2 What raid experience did you have in classic WoW?

3.3 What raid experience did you have in TBC?

3.4 What raid experience do you have in WotLK?

3.5 What raid experience do you have in Cata?
I've killed Conclave and Maloriak.

3.6 We use Ventrillo for communication on raids, it is required that all players atleast be able to listen in on vent. Will this be a problem for you?

3.7 What is your internet connection? (speed and download limit – important because dogging hard raids because your “capped” is a piss weak excuse)
20Mbts - 200gigs usage.

3.8 If possible please post a link to a picture of your ui with raid frames. (This is more important for healers)
Can't do this atm. I use LUI, with Combustion Helper and Mage Nuggets.

3.9 Post a link to what you feel is the best PVE spec for your character.

3.9a What prime glyphs do you use and why?
Molten Armor - Crit is king, meaning more DPS.
Pyroblast - see above
Fireball - see above

3.9b What major glyphs do you use and why?
Polymorph - I hate sheep being impossible due to DoTs on target
Evocation - Mainly for PvE use, but a 40% heal is a 40% heal
Invisibility - For getting where I want to go faster

3.9c What minor glyphs do you use and why?
Mirror Image - I'm a fire mage, no mirror image of mine is gonna shoot frostbolts
Slow Fall - Always a use for this spell.
Monkey - Cause turning my enemy into a monkey is more comic (Will most likely change to Armors soon)

3.10 DPS - Describe a typical rotation you would use to maximise your DPS against (a) single targets and (b) multiple targets
Healers - Tell us what sort of healing strategies you use to maximise your (a) tank healing and (b) raid healing
Tanks - Describe a typical rotation you would use to maximise your (a) single target threat (b) AOE threat

Single Target - Open up with Flame Orb then Living Bomb into a Scorch for the % crit. Spam fireball until Hotstreak procs or Living bomb runs out, then cast those. All the while looking for a good opportunity to apply Combustion. Usually I do this right after the first Hotstreak proc, unless I have a pathetic ignite, in which case I'll wait for a better one. Recast Flame Orb when it comes up (macroed so that it uses synapse springs before casting)

AoE - For 3 - 5 targets I drop Blastwave, then Flamestrike, hopefully getting an impact proc. Then I cast Living bomb on an enemy and Fire Blast, after this single targeting one with above rotation. After Living Bomb expires, repeating the above. Through this I cast Blastwave whenever it's off cooldown and make sure the Flamestrike DoT is always up. If I get the chance for a good Combustion with an Impact up I'll use it and spread it to the others.

For more enemies I use Blastwave, then Flamestrike until Impact procs, then I use Living bomb impact on an enemy. If a Hotstreak procs with an Impact I'll put a combustion on one of the enemies and spread it to the others using impact

4. PvP

If you’re not a very serious PvPer feel free to skip this section

4.1 What are your achievements of note in PvP? (high rank / Arena rating / etc)
Nothing yet, been focusing on PvE first, but PvP is definitely on my radar for a bit later. Arena and Rated Battlegrounds.

5.Other Stuff

5.1 Do you have any achievements relavent to your application you'd wish us to note?

5.2 Are you applying with any other guilds at the moment?
Since originally making this application I have applied to join No MAAM.

5.2 What do you hope to get out of Southern Cross? Why do you think you would make a valuable member?
A friendly environment in which I can can have fun and enjoy the big group content of the game.
