3. Tell us about yourself. occupation, hobbies, etc - as much or as little as you would like to share.:

I'm currently in college studying as a History major, and I like to play WoW ^.^


Analytical Skill - very important

WeeR supports out of the box thinkers. You are required to compare yourself to our existing member who is playing the same class and spec you are applying for. Can you point out any improvements in our main raiders specs/gear, if any, or is there anything you would do different and why?:

From what I can see on the Stone Guard H fight on the 5th of February, The Holy Paladin healing that particular fight was not spec'ed into Hand of Purity, I'm assuming he/she was instead using Clemency. I would consider this an error, as the use of Hand of Purity on tanks in this encounter greatly reduces the damage they take from the Stone Guard's "Rend Flesh" ability. This ability reduces the damage on tanks greatly, and allows healer to heal tanks less, and the raid more. The argument would be of course Clemency is useful because of the ability to use Hand of Freedom/Sacrifice/Protection twice. Here is why I believe Clemency is the weaker option in this case-scenario. Hand of Freedom is basically rendered useless, because there is no need for anyone else but a Paladin to break Cobalt traps when needed. All that is necessary is being spec'ed into Speed of Light, and Divine shielding/ (When needing to break traps not during Cobalt petrification)Hand of Freedom'ing through said traps. Hand of Freedom is a nice ability to have, but being able to use it one additional time and the extremely high cooldown does not justify Clemency over Hand of Purity. As for Hand of Protection, this ability is basically useless during this fight, as all of the raid damage is magic damage.

Hey Nicefaith,

several concerns I have about recruiting another holy pally.

* We currently have 6 active healers, would you mind being on a rotation with the rest of them, since we usually bring 5 healers to a raid?
* I noticed you have 7/16hm, why would you want to go to a 5/16HM guild?
* 25 man healing is very different compare to 10 man, do you have 25man experience? and why do you want 25man?
* Have you try applying to other guilds who are ahead of us, and why?

Thanks
Artic
