What professions do you have, and what level are they and why chooses them?

LW + Eng: 600 on both

What is your spec and what did you choose this particular build?

Assassination - I normally stick with Combat Readiness as it helps the healers a little. Tier 3, imo, is the only one I really change depending on the fight. For certain fights, e.g. DA, I found that Shadowstep was better. In other fights, e.g. Ji Kun, I tend to use Cloak & Dagger, especially if I am on nests.

How do you prioritize your gear choices (hit/agi/dmg/etc)?

Agi > hit + expertise = 7.5% > mastery > haste > crit I tend to stay away from gear with hit or expertise on it, as I found that I reached the caps very easily. I am hoping to get my meta gem in the next month at which I will gem for more haste over mastery.

Explain the purpose for your secondary spec (ex. PVP, Arena, Changing roles in raid to heal/dps/tank, soloing/questing)Do you have a full set of gear for your secondary spec?

I don't really need it as I just need to regem. Certain fights do favour combat, e.g. Horridon, but I do more sustained damage as assassin.

Would you re-spec for the raid?


Please explain any problems with your current gear (missing or incorrect gems/enchants, incorrectly itemized gear, etc)

Just missing the meta gem! :P

Whats your name? And where are you from?

Mike - Swiss

What is your age in real life?

26 (27 soon)

What interests do you have / activities do you like to do outside of WoW?

Fitness, cooking and hiking.

What sort of internet connection do you have, and how stable is it?Do you have problems with lag, low ping, or random disconnects in raids?

None! I'm on a 25MB connection

Do you have TS3 installed? Do you own a mic? Can you talk without horrible feedback? And will you talk if communication is necessary?

Absolutely! Have a Logitech G930!

What is your previous guild history, and why did you leave those guilds?May we contact your prior guild(s) as reference?

Most recent guild was Dystopia on Draenor. You can contact them but you'll get a very negative response. I quit them mainly because I couldn't stand the Guild Leader and some of the members. They were clearly lagging us behind because of failing on simple mechanics. They would completely ignore if I said something on TS or tried to 'fit in'. I felt like a 'clique' had already been created and no matter how hard I tried, I didn't fit in. Really hated it there. Granted the way I left was very unprofessional but I've learned from it. His wife, who healed in the guild, has now been sending vial message to my character and accusing me of guild hopping, just because I have a lot of alts. I think it's best I tell you so that you hear my side too.

What is the approximate length of time you’ve been playing WoW?

4 years, on and off. But mainly due to real life issues (University + job search). I am now stable and have been offered a permanent contract at my current job.

What is your previous raiding experience, if any?

DS Heroic (up to Spine) on my Holy Paladin, Hathae, on Chamber of Aspects.

Why do you want to raid?What makes you enjoy your class and role in a raid?

I really enjoy the team work. Above all, I am a team player and like to achieve something as part of a team. RBGs just didn't allow me to have the same amount of fun as raiding. Regarding my class, it's definitely the survivability of my class. I don't think there's any melee out there who has so much at their disposal to survive fights, making us a clear asset to any raid comp.

What’s your favorite raiding encounter?What’s the best wipe you’ve ever caused?

Durumu. Such a fun fight. The first time I did this fight, we wiped at 100k health. From that day forward, I made sure I was in a group that had a strong DOT class!

How do you typically prepare for bosses you haven’t encountered before?Can you handle constructive criticism?

I normally watch videos and read up on strategies on websites such as MMO-Champion and the WoW Forums. I also speak to other similar classes, in this case, melee, about advice and tips!

Tell / show me the best joke or video you have ever seen or heard!!! THIS ONE IS IMORTARNT!

"Yo momma is so fat that she needs 20 priests to levitate her". -_- That is the extent of my knowledge of jokes!

Do you have any friends or family inside of HWC?

None, unfortunately!

Do you agree to guild rules.




I forgot to mention that my experience is on my alt:

I've also learned a few things from my parses:

I need to get a higher uptime on Rupture; use TotT more and Feint on AOE. I'm practicing on these a lot more!
