Tell us a little about yourself.: I am a 21 year old Computer science major from minnesota, I have been playing wow since Late B.C. and i enjoy hockey.

Are you raid ready? (All gear enchanted, gemmed, max professions?) Explain:: Yes. All gear for all 3 specs is enchanted, gemmed and ready to go. Also I have full consumables.
Explain how you prepare for raids. What sites, tools, macros & addons do you use and why? Are you currently using the most up to day version of DBM or BigWigs? Why/Why Not?: Class discords have become my favorite way to prepare for a new boss encounter, as well as keeping up to date on new strats for my class/spec specifically for fights. I use DBM for raiding, along with Weak auras, ElvUI, details, SimC(for raidbots), and Exorcus Raid tools(ERT). Weak Aura's and DBM are mandatory for me, since they are the premier boss alert addons and make raiding infinity easier. Details and ERT are really good for fight analysis on the fly in game, and also I use the Exorcus Raid Cooldown portion of the addon.
List some of your raiding experiences. Why are you interested in raiding?: in the last 2 expansions I have gotten every Cutting Edge since siege, apart from NH and Tomb when i was not actively playing the game, and even then I went 3/10m with a friends guild in NH and 7/9M in Tomb after joining a friends guild. Ever since i was called up to raid at a high level in Wrath, I have been drawn to progression raiding. And since I have no problem wiping, I tend to enjoy it alot as well.
Tell us a little about your previous raiding guilds and why you left/are leaving.: Since coming to thrall in ToT, I raided with the following guilds;
Crossfire:(ToT-BRF) playing Elemental and then Restoration Shaman. Guild disbanded after having roster issues.
Evolution:(End of BRF) Guild was the most toxic place i have ever been in, Left almost instantly. Playing Ele shaman.
Swarm: (part of HFC) have nothing but good memories of swarm, but I left for a better opportunity with more play time in intent. was playing Windwalker Monk
Intent: (HFC-ToV) Raiding in Intent was the best times i have ever had in wow, and we achieved results getting U.S 78th in Emerald Nightmare before disbanding due to leadership in ToV. Played Mistweaver monk obtaining over 12 rank 1's in 3 tiers
Dark Confliction: (end of Tomb - start of Antorus) After a small break for the first time ever in my wow history, I returned to raid with some friends from crossfire in DC. However, due to loot council issues and leadership problems, the core officers pulled out and with only 6 people from the main roster still raiding, I felt like I was not going to continue with this guild. Playing Holy paladin.
Why do you want to join Unrivaled?: I have heard nothing but good things about this guild, along with the fact that your raid days work perfectly with my schedule for school. As you can see from my raiding history, I can play alot of classes, if not any class, at a high level. So while I'm apping as a holy pally, I would also be willing to play ret, or prot, or my geared boomkin, or restoration druid, or guardian. I am very flexible on what class/spec I play, and i enjoy doing the sidejobs that while are not flashy, are a requirement to kill a boss and i think Unrivaled will be a fantastic place to showcase this.
Our roster is full of solid players who know their class. We like to keep a bit of depth to our ranks so there may be times that we need you to sit, for any reason. Do you have a problem sitting?: : Absolutely not.
