Character name: Aaro.
If hunter, please note that in addition to your other duties, you will also be the guild scapegoat, taking the blame for incidents including, but not limited to, the tanks dying from lack of healing, cloth-wearing classes body-aggroing trash, and us running out of booze.
If gnome, expect to be juggled and/or turned into dinner. Hungry druid is hungry!

Gear (link from the Armory, warcrafter.net, or Ctprofiles): http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Durotan&n=Aaro Briefly describe your usual DPS or threat rotation and when (or if) it varies. If you are a healer, tell us about your healing style.
As a healer i tend to look for the raid members that have the less amount of health. They are second priority. First is the tank. But i use my beacon on the tank and most of the time i don't have to worry about him unless I am main heals for him/her. I use FoL for the most part to make sure i have a good amount of mana for the encountered fight. For aoe effects i use Divine Sacrifice and heal the targets with a FoH followed by a holy light. If you look at my spec you may notice that i dont have Imp wis. Well there is a rather exceptional excuse for it. You might also see in my talent tree a spell called "Aura mastery". Then you might think "well thats useless and its a 2 min. cooldown, swap it out for Imp wis" Well if you feel that way then let me tell you this... If your in say ToGC and your fighting against Gormok, and you have a Snobold on you, this spell comes in a very good use. As everyone knows they interupt your spell casts for about 8 seconds. Would you risk the whole raid for not healing for 8 seconds? Say the boss did a aoe effect and the raid had to depend on the other healers to heal the raid fully... can you take that risk? Or would you avoid it with a simple spell such as this?
Bonus points for a WWS parse of you performing well: My last guild did not use WWS.
What consumables do you bring to an average raid? Most of the time i have my Flask's, And i have water/food, don't like to depend on mages to give me food.
List your relevant Wrath raiding experience (bosses killed): I have downed all of ToTC 10/25, i have gotten up to Yogg (dont know the fight but i have seen him) in uld, And i have cleared nax, 10/25.
Do you want to bring any alts with you? (Note: your alt(s) must be at least level 20 to warrant an invite.) No i do not, i dont waste time nor money on an alt that i might never use.
Please review our raiding schedule and indicate what days you can attend. If there are any raids you can partially make, indicate that as well. Times are EST (server time).
Wednesday 9:00 pm - 1:00 am: Yes i cn make this Sunday 9:00 pm - 1:00 am: Yes i can make this. Monday 9:00 pm - 1:00 am: Yes i can make this.
Do you have vent? A mic? Yes and Yes.
Are you over 18? Or can lie well enough we’re not going to catch you out? Yes i am 18.
Maturity as measured in kittens: haha what?? I dont know like 2? depends how you judge the measurement.
Why do you want to join Bacchanalia? Give us something more than the stock, “I want to raid,” because no shit. Why choose us? To tell you the truth... I had gotten a tip by a friend that was in Cartel. Me and him were talking about what guilds to join as far as our skill went, and he found his but im still looking for mine, he suggested Bacchanalia because im a better overall healer in 10 mans rather then 25's. I can heal 25's fine. But you might be more impressed if i was to be healing 10's. So he said that Bacchanalia was a great 10 man guild to join.
Past guilds (including imaginary ones): Haha, I was in Addiction before i left. I'm rather new to this server, if you want my old realms guild and website i would be happy to give it to you.
Reason(s) for leaving your old guild(s):Well my first guild.. i X-fered from server, so it was a must to leave, unless blizzard decides to make cross realm guilds im sure its impossible to stay. My most recent guild *Addiction* I left because there was a lil drama in the guild and raiding with drama is no fun:( Plus the dps was way to low to progress any further, we had tried to get them geared, but no effort to be helped.
Are you applying to other guilds (including imaginary ones)? Yes i am, i am applying to *Ink* as well. But im interested in Bacchanalia because of the regulated 10 mans.
Do you know anyone in Bacchanalia? Not yet:)
Tell us about yourself: Depends what you want to know? Im a pretty confident raider, I like to challenge the healing meter and i dont like being last. If you see me last for healing then im pretty sure you should look at the dispell meter. Of course not sacrificing the overall goal of the guild in doing so. I will gladly drop down in meters for the sake of the win.
What’s your favorite web site? Well if that was tword WoW.. I visit various sites like MMochampion, WOR, and Elitest jerks.
Character choices: 1. Could you explain the choice of spellpower gems over intellect gems? The choice for my gems have been dependent on my gear, for instance.. ive been running totc 10-25, & uld 10-25 regular, So i haven't been having a loss of mana problem at all, but as my gear progress's to get beter, i start to put int gems into it because of the harder raids that require more mana, to be efficient. I figured to use spell power gems for the time being because i wasn't having a problem sustaining mana for the fights.
2. Could you explain your choice of meta and shoulder enchant? My meta gem is crit/mana - The crit is beter for me because of the boot and shoulder enchant i have. The mana is beter for me also because of the spell power stacking i have been doing with my gems, thus far. As for my shoulder enchant, its basicly vise versa and both mp5 and crit are meaningful and important to a healer, its more dependent on the person and how they heal that is the deciding factor of the gem or enchant they put for their gear.
3. Are you actively working on Hodir rep? Yes i am actively working on it at the moment. Every day i do the dailys and turn in the relics.
4. Why Imp. Concentration Aura over Imp. Wis? (Aura mastery is acceptable.) Well, 1 shammys will always have their tot's.. 2 having a decressed silence and/or interupt effect is actually pretty useful to a healer, not as useful... but just enough to spec for it. Like i said, risking the raid for a interupt or silence effect is fatal, and you might be thinking "Well not having enough mp5 is fatal too, isnt it?" Yes this is true.. but, if your a smart player, especially a paladin, then you wont have a problem with going "oom". You can avoid going oom, but you cant always avoid a silence.
5. Why mp5 on the boots over the crit enchant? The crit is a rather beter enchant to have, but with the way i heal... to put the mp5 on the boots is a smart way to go, its a more balanced way shall i say.
6. Why spellpower/spirit on your legs instead of spellpower/stamina? Well... paladins dont need spirit. But as being a healer, spirit does increase your mp5 rate.. rather it be by a little or alot. To have the spirit over stam in my opinion is a beter way to go. Hence that it gives mp5.
Questions for you as a raider: 1. It's very unlikely given our usual tanks that we'll have you swing to tanking. Do you have any interest in playing ret as an offspec? Yes i can play ret if you will need, i might have to farm some things to get beter gear... such as uld, or emblems needed, but if this is the case, i would gladly switch. 2. Have you ever attempted any of the Ulduar hardmode encounters or Trial of the Grand Crusade (10 or 25)? (I know you don't have the achievements for completing them. I'm curious if you've ever done them.) Yes i do not have the achievments, but i have attempted northren beasts on hardmode. 3. Healing meters - our core healers are very strong players. If you aren't on the top of the healing meter - if, for whatever reason, you were regularly on the bottom of the healing meter - is that going to be an issue for you? Yes i understand they will be either beter geared healers then me, or beter over all healers... but no this will not be a problem for me if i am bottem. To me being bottem could show a lack of either skill or quickness of heals. Nothing i will complain about, but its also nothing i want to be, haha... like i said, "Of course not sacrificing the overall goal of the guild in doing so. I will gladly drop down in meters for the sake of the win."
