Togusa – Human - Mage
I am a frost mage with 2/0/59
Please explain why you have chosen your talent build and what you consider to be its strengths and weaknesses.
Over my course of playing this game in the number of years I have played it I have moved from arcane to fire and then frost, I consider frost my favourite, being able to have the extra protection and the ability to speed up casting time, summon an elemental to help, unlike fire usually we crit for less but we do crit more often to make up for this fact, this could spike threat but playing a frost mage for a while you learn to control and know roughly how much extra threat each bolt will cause. Also with the two in arcane as some bosses have resistances and this will help.
Would you be willing to respecc for the good of the guild and discuss your build with officers who have the proper knowledge?
Indeed, I have no objections changing I know talents and shot rotations of each of the specs and can hold up my end, although I will be required to change a couple of pieces and re-enchant my weapon, but I will not mind changing.
Comments regarding your gear setup, is there a plan behind it, i.e. more emphasis on AP than hit or is it randomly put together because it was the best you could find?
Mainly choosing hit rating I find that it is safer to go for the max of your hit rating first, a resist can severely weaken your DPS if they keep resisting currently I believe I am 10 or so away, then I increase my Spell damage with the darkmoon faire card that will increase it again by 80 when fully in use.
My cape…. That is a story in its self.. every time I go anywhere with Togusa to get a new one it never drops.. I have not seen it I have mats ready to do an enchant but feel it will be a waste on this type of cloak and so am still waiting.
If your standard gear do not give you a raid buffed hp of 10k (no Blood Pact) or more, do you have raid quality gear to swap in to bring it to this amount of above?
I do have other pieces of gear to switch to increase my health, I will also use different food to increase this instead of spell damage,
What resistance gear sets do you have?
Do you have your lvl 70 Medallion of the Alliance?
Afraid I only have the insignia of the alliance, but can Ice block and cold snap Ice block again (after waiting 30 seconds) to help avoid more trouble
How many nights per week can you attend raids? (Current 25-man raid days are tuesday, wednesday, thursday, sunday)
All of them, currently nothing planned that can interfere in the near forcible future
Prior raid experience and raid guild / raid community.
Beholders of Divinity is my previous raid guild, we have Cleared Kara, Gruul, Magtheridon’s Lair, along with now 5/6 in SSC with a good understanding of Vashj (we got her down to 1%), 3 /4 in The Eye
And the first boss down in Mount Hyjal and second at around 20%.
Reason for leaving your prior raid guild / raid community.
Unfortunately the week after we got vashj to 1% there where serious signing up issues with people not signing up and the raid leaders begging some people they became annoyed and decided to call it and stop all raiding.
How important is loot to you? And why?
To be fair everyone loves loot and wants to get better gear, including me. I know without it progression in a raid will be slower or stop completely, and also it looks better, well most of it, but I don’t loot everyone if someone has been wanting something for ages or much better an upgrade for another member I will pass.
Do you agree with our policies? And our expectations of being prepared for every raid?
You should always be prepared for every raid, without them it will be hard to advance, I have a alchemist that makes all my mana pots and flasks, and Togusa is my enchanter to enable me to put the best enchants on my rings.
Tell us the basic facts about yourself in real life (age, nationality, hobbies etc).
I am Human and 20 and British.
Currently at University studying computer Programming.
I enjoy watching Anime, playing games with mates build computers.
Currently reading a book by Robin Hobb (Renegade’s Magic) and that entire storyline over al three books sums by likes and dislikes up I feel.
How did you hear about BotE and what are you expectations of the guild?
Heard about it in general chat
Do you know anyone inside BotE who can vouch for you?
Do you feel we've missed something you want to add?
Friendly person that although can have a laugh I will get down to the point and focus when the time calls for it.
