Also damn your app process is harsh. I was only going to app for a 'possible' raid spot (considering I don't know how my available times will change over the next month) and ofc guild perks, but I may just hold off until my timings are clear. And until I have a good WoL report (I died on my last Ultra to failure at Deterrence pushing >.<)
Our vetting process is fairly thorough, but the actual raids tend to be fairly laid back. When we were 25s (aka 15s while carrying 10) I did a number of performance reviews for individual people to go over rotations, CD management, positioning, etc. Haven't had to do that in a while, though I'll still offer advice if anyone asks.
Most of the stuff I call out in Vent/Mumble is related to boss abilities - calling out kill targets, CD adjustments for big hits, etc. I'm not the yelling type and I wouldn't say "Hey you only got off 40 explosive shots when you could have gotten 45" right after a kill. I do tend to pay attention to hunters more since that's the class I'm most familiar with nowadays and there's a direct comparison available if I'm in the raid.
But really the most important thing I like to see in apps is a willingness to improve, if you can mash buttons decently and stay out of fire it's fairly simple to get ~80% out of your gear. Even if you're not a WoL/Simcraft expert we can provide you with the tools and knowledge to get that extra +10% (We don't expect people to hit 100%, we're not going for world firsts here. Though if you're curious I can point out what's keeping you from getting there).
As every raiding guild on this server knows (especially Horde side) it's rare to come across a really polished player, so I always expect there to be some room for improvement. Most people can learn things about their class just from our application process, so I use it as a barometer to gauge how much they know, how quickly they pick up certain concepts, how they handle criticism, etc.
It's a decent time commitment on my end (I generally spend an hour or two going over the logs for each app) so if the app can reciprocate with some effort and handle the ribbing that's generally a good sign. Saying things like "I'd do better if I had more gear" (we can gear anyone, doesn't mean you're getting the most out of your toon) or "I had really bad RNG that attempt" (RNG doesn't account for you doing 10k less DPS than you should, man up and figure out where you can improve) is generally a bad sign.
PS: I went over your guild applications. You guys are completely mad. And here I thought Guinthel was the King of the Mad Hill. He's just part of the crowd.
You should see our Member Chat, we have some pretty interesting conversations. I'd say our personality is our greatest attribute, actual game-related stuff like half-decent progression and stability is kind of an afterthought.
