1. Applicant 1.1 Character name: Pollymorph
1.2 Class: Druid
1.3 Current Realm: Sunstrider
2. Personal Information 2.1 First name: Mark
2.2 Age: 24
2.3 Nationality: English
2.4 Gender: Male
2.5 Tell us about yourself: Hey guys and gals, well i live in England, i am currently working as an IT Tech for an agriculture company. my main hobbies are watching films and playing computer games, i have been playing WoW on and off since vanilla and like to think i have in-depth knowledge on every class (minus DK's and Mages)
3. Additional Information 3.1 Why do you want to become part of the Moral Decay? I have not hardcore raided since Firelands Heroic back on my Hunter, where i had an early life crisis and decided to go traveling around the world. now that i am back home and settling back into Sunstrider i am looking for that buzz and rush i have so dearly missed. I have only heard good things about Moral Decay and ive always been told to aim high when applying for anything These are my reasons for applying for Moral Decay.
3.2 What do you feel you can bring to Moral Decay? I feel i will bring reliability, friendliness and decent DPS/Gear ratios, i am falling in love with the feral dps rotation and am working on getting the 'complex' rotation down to a tee.
3.3 Are there any Moral Decay Members who can vouch for you? Unfortunately no, unless any of them raided with Fairytale back in Cata (Frostie was my hunter)
4. Character Information 4.1 Armory link:http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/sunstrider/Pollymorph/advanced 4.2 Prefered raidingspec(s): Feral
4.3 Do you have other gear we should know about? None
4.4 Discuss your stat priorities. Main stat prios are Agility>Hit(7.5)>Exp(7.5)>Mastery>Crit>Haste - I take all stat priorities from Noxxic and i believe them to be the most accurate.
Agility: All around dps boost, increases attack power and crit.
Hit/Exp: Every class is the same, always reach 7.5 in both, no one wants to miss a 5combo 2proc trinket RIP on a feral kitty. i would cry for days.
Mastery: The % scaling on mastery to damage is just broken (good), stacking mastery has no downside, bleeds are your biggest damaging moves and with trinket procs (currently rune re-org) masteries can reach the 200%+ bleed damage mark. With a fresh Ticking Ebon Detonator trinket proc (currently 18kagi from the proc) and a well timed RIP and Rake you are looking at some mind blowing DoT's.
Crit: Being an agility class crit does not need to be a prio stat, however it is still more beneficial than haste. more crits on bleeds = more dps. Simple.
Haste: Increases energy regen and auto attack speed. both are important however not worth the ratios to stack.
4.5 Discuss your talent en glyph choices.
T1: Feline Swiftness 15% Movement - Generally the most universally all rounded T1 movement buff (change for specific boss mechanics to Displacer Beast if instant distance movement is required.
T2: Ysera's Gift 5% heal 5/sec - All around the most beneficial to the raid, self heals to ease healers mana with raid heals for when i am topped.
T3: Typhoon knockback - Probably hated equally as much as shamans thundershock, however, can help out in as simple situations such as stopping a group of mobs from casting certain spells on Tanks/Raid members.
T4: Soul of the Forest energy pcp - Most sustained dps talent point, changed to Force of Nature for burst required fights.
T5: Mighty Bash Stun - we all know those mobs that are immune to silence but are still vulnerable to stuns, this is my extra silence to those pesky mobs that think they have the upper hand
T6: Dream of Cenarius heal>damage buff - Now, i can probably talk about this spell all day and how effectively you can use it, i am sure any kitty is well aware of its capabilities but alot of the time you have so many things popping up on your screen with raid tactics and trinket procs and dot duration's it can be quite hard to effectively use this talent, however, i have been reading up on it and putting it to practice A LOT and am pretty sure this talent now beats any dps you can gain from the other talents - I will only ever change to Heart of the Wild on the RL's request if we are struggling with losing a healer/tank in a fight. and Natures Vigil for the same reason if we require situational aoe heals to the raid.
Savagery: gives me no excuse to not have 99%+ up-time on savagery.
Cat form: 20% more heals on me - helping healers out and increasing my survivability
Shred: Not a major increase but can be helpful on pesky fights where its not always possible to be behind the target
Minor - Chameleon, you will never know my true colours! that way i can blame any mistakes on others. (only joking ;D )
4.6 Discuss your rotation (or priority). Maintaining Faerie Fire to the target as prio, this decreases the targets armor thus giving a raid dps boost, Savage roar also maintain this will increase all physical damage by 40%, RIP Maintained on the target at all times, only renew RIP prematurely if i receive trinket procs and have a stack of my T6 Talent - Reasons for this are simple with my current setup, Rune proc will double my Mastery, giving 200%~ damage increase my Ebon detonator will also give me an 80% boost in agility for a split second and T6 Talent gives a 30% damage boost to the next ability if i time this correctly i would get a full duration rip with all procs (not as uncommon as you might think) overall this would be roughly just under 300% more damage over the duration of my bleeds. i am not one to sit down and do the exact math so please dont take my calculations above to be exact. I use Thrash only with an omen of clarity, the high energy cost does not make it effective without an omen proc. rake maintained for more bleeds, i would apply my rake directly after my RIP combo explained above, Shred and Mangle for combo point generator depending on situation. When below 25% health i will be purely using Ferocious Bite as a combo finisher to maintain RIP.
Symbiosis: Used 90% of the time on a warrior, providing another 20% armor debuff from Shatter Throw- Raid wide dps increase.
4.7 What are your maxed Professions and why? Currently leveling Mining and Herb - Making the most of druid gathering efficiency.
4.8 Do you have a combatlog of a recent raid? Link: Not currently
5. Raid Information 5.1 What is your raiding experience with this applying character or alt - formal main? Feral DPS in a raiding environment dates back to ICC10/25 raiding on Turalyon realm with a guild named 'in Concordia' which has since been abandoned due to guild changing realms. i have completed every boss on Flex on my Monk Tank with 3/14 normal, this was my main however i never felt as at home as i did while playing my feral druid (i guess the moral of the story is dont try something else if you already love playing a specific class) i know all SoO mechanics and have watched countless streams of heroic runs to familiarise myself with tactics.
Most progression was with Fairytale back in cata 6/7 FL HC (never managed to get raggy down before i went traveling)
5.2 What resources do you utilize to remain informed about your class? Noxxic/Real life friends who raid in high end guilds on Alliance Outland Realm
5.3 What add-on modules do you use and why? DBM/weakauras
5.4 What is your attitude on wiping in raids: Death is a part of the game, i have said this since the start of Vanilla, everyone dies, i am not however going to lie and say that ive never had a little rage over a specific mechanic that people fail on. 95% of the time i am calm and collected, best thing is to review and try try again
5.5 Are you willing to gear, gem, enchant and spec for PVE, bring all needed consumables to raids, and install the addons we ask you to? Of course, i would never go to a raid without spare food/flasks/pots.. hey ill even bring a disco ball for those 5 minute breaks!
5.6 Can you make atleast 2 of our raid days from 19:30 until 24:00? (Wednesday, Thursday and/or Sunday) I am available every day. Give or take certain real life events of course
6. Computer information 6.1 Do you have a stable computer that can handle 25man raiding? Yes, my computer is a beast.
6.2 Do you have a stable internet connection? The only disconnects i ever seem to get are scheduled ones once a week at 6:00pm. well before raid start.
6.3 Post a screenshot of your user interface while in a raid setting (A battleground or LFR shot is fine aswell): none available at the moment.
7. Guild Information 7.1 Which other guilds have you been a member of? Fairytale/Im a whale orooaorooa
7.2 Please state the reason for leaving them: i am leaving Whale because it is a casual raiding guild only raiding once a week. i am really looking to get back into hardcore raiding and now that sunstrider is actually classed as a 'low populated realm' your guild is my best chance at achieving what i want from the game.
7.3 How many guilds have you been a member of the last year? 1
7.4 Are you applying to other guilds now? None others.
8. Conclusion 8.1 Do you have any questions for us? I think i have rambled enough already to ask questions
8.2 Do you want to share something, that we didnt asked? I would ask to please not rate me on my current gear, i really am a dedicated player and like to think i know my stuff about what is required. i am working my arse off currently to gear up enough to be at the basic standard for your guilds requirement. i believe at my current rate i will have mostly flex gear within 2-3 weeks depending on the luck of the drops. i make sure i am saved to every raid lockout everyweek. the only downside is i will not be obtaining my legendary cape anytime soon.
Thank you so much for your time in reading my application and i look forward to your response.
Edit: I forgot to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! All the best to everyone ho ho ho

Hi, thanks for the response.
As for gear, i know i am under geared, i am working my hardest to gear up.
I assure you i am not applying for free gear and boosts etc. i am quite happy to grind the gear myself out of the guild and if you find me fit for your guild when i have the gear to invite me then, i would understand completely.
Again thanks for the response and i wish you a Merry Christmas.

I wish you GL we need a drood who will broke once for all these warlocks in DPS
You say that you will go on your own to gather gear i see you are almost full Flex and on your realm to make something over flex is abit hard
Never underestimate the power of the stupid people!
hi guys. just fyi. just been told about shift hour changes at my work. i will be working 3 hours later than normal for about a month which would stop me from raiding. i guess i will re-apply when my hours are back to normal.
or if you are willing i would change my application to social and will re-apply at a later date.
Thanks for your time
