Server : Crushridge
Class/Race : NE Bear druid.
Level : 90
Alts: I had 14 85's. I'm currently in the process on deciding which ones to level next.
Experience End-Game Raiding:
I am another 7 year veteran of WoW. I have extensive experience with end game raiding, spent quite a few years with top 100 then top 25 guilds. I have previously earned "Grand Crusader" and understand the need and sacrifices that must be made to earn, then maintain, top raiding status.
My Spec: I understand blizzard's move to make your spec more individualized and I will explaing my spec and inform you all why I chose what I chose.
Tier 1) I chose Feral Charge over Feline Swiftness because I believe in majority of fights in this new expansion the need for Charge is still prevelant. It will allow us, as tanks, precious 1 or 2 GCD to start to build threat or allow us to position the boss in a better location.
Tier 2) I use Renewal in conjuction with Ursoc and my other defensive cd's and it acts similar to a paladin's "Lay of Hands" it ensures that at at time I can go from Sub 10% to Full health with a simple macro.. With the outlook of healers and the uncertainity that always follows an expansion I believe early on this will save countless wipes in the beginning of raiding.
Tier 3) I chose FFS over the other two because I really thought the others were relatively in-effective in a boss encounter.. I understand that during trash it could be used for CC but it still doesn't help when it matters.
Tier 4) I believe incarnation is the only true viable raid choice.
Tier 5) Vortex I chose to help wrangle and CC other mobs... It also helps out during trash clears and when in a rush.
Tier 6) Chose Heart of the wild for it's passive buff, but I also believe once gear improves Nature's Vigil will overcome HotW.
Hopefully I have illustrated my ability to clearly think about all options during the selection of my spec.. But I understand they make Tome of Clarity for a reason and things can and should be switched at a moments notice if a different option is better.
NOW ON TO WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.
I would like to find a guild that is very active, not only with their mains, but also their alts. Some guild that is striving for atleast server first, if not close to it. I would prefer to stay Alliance but if the best fit is Horde, then so be it. I would like to find a guild that isn't clickish, but willing and easily accepts new members as their own. I am tired of finding, what I think is a right fit, only to find 2-3 seperate clicks that if you like this person you cannot associate with that one. I would like to find a guild that has a ultimate common goal, of downing bosses....
Well I think that is about enough for an initial introduction and if you would provie an IM, Email or Battletag and look forward to finding a new home...
