Jean le Roux
Where are you from?:
South Africa (Pretoria)
When did you start playing? Why?:
About 6 years ago - I have a cruel friend who felt like ruining my social life and messing with my studies, he also knows I'm a fond gamer
ivul, Warlock, Demonology (main)/Affliction(Offspec), Bronzebeard
Armoury Link: (Please log out in raiding gear and spec):
What is your age (18+)?:
25 - Going on 26
Warcraft Logs or World of Logs parses link:
What site do you use as your main source of information regarding your class/spec/gear? :
I used icy veins but I read up what I could wherever I could find it.
What is your prefered spec to raid/pvp with and why? :
I really enjoy Affliction but Demonology outperforms it in most situations, and is easier to get done with groups that make lots of mistakes, due to the high level of movement one can maintain while DPSing.
How long have you been playing this character and what is it's /played time?:
This is ivul 5.0 - Been playing on private servers for a while before I joined "official WoW" His played time is 22 days and 11 hours. I recently switched to him from my warrior who used to be my Main for the whole SoO patch (which is when I joined Bronzebeard)
Do you have any alts that you can play on a level equal to your main(Class and Spec)?:
I have 11 toons (one of each class) and I play most of them at almost the same level. My lock is the only one i would feel comfortable to bring over to Entropy at the moment though.
Do you have a raid viable gear set for your offspec?:
Luckily the stats are extremely close to being optimal for both my main and offspec But I don't have a perfectly finetuned offset of gear, no.
What are your usual playing times? (Please see our raid times):
Nowadays I'm on most days of the week with no real set schedules in the evenings for real life business, so I should be free for pretty much everything Entropy-related.
Please list all relevant previous and current guilds of your characters on this server and reason(s) for leaving. If server transfer, please provide old server name and guilds.:
Only ever been in "The Irregulars" on Bronzebeard. The reason for me leaving is that I really would like to get some mythic content under my belt - Irregulars have never attempted to get that far and their social-friendly policies make it very hard to get a Mythic team together as well as drags us down on "easy" things like BRF normal/HC. I'm a good raider and I just feel like there's a whole aspect of the game I'm missing out on and I keep frustrating myself PuGGing to get to the level where I could do Mythic but never get that far because of the limitations of our guild and the server, largely.
What previous PvE and PvP experience do you have? :
I've not done much PVP lately to be honest so that's practically irrelivant. PvE However I ahve done Garrosh mythic (Pugged it right before the patch died) and then lately I've been doing a heck of a lot of BRF HC on most of my toons (Wherever I could find a suitable group to pug with) That has sadly only gone as far as 9/10 BRF HC before groups failed and people left and everything got too frustrating for everyone to carry on.
We raid 4 nights a week. What kind of raid attendance can we expect from you? And are you able to stay if the raid exceeds normal times?:
I should be able to attend all 4 nights and yes I have no reason to not be able to stay longer if that becomes necessary.
Post a screenshot of your UI while in combat, using: http://imgur.com/ (or similar site.) :
Do you have a functioning headset/microphone?:
Do you have a stable internet connection and a PC that can handle 20+man raiding?:
What do you aim to achieve within WoW and Entropy?:
I would like to enjoy raiding again and actually get some bosses down, the fact that it would be Mythic level with Entropy is just that much nicer.
Are you willing to join Entropy as a backup until space opens?:
Why should Entropy take you on board? What do you bring to us?:
Well I'm a well mannered bloke with a good sense of humor. I always try to do better and learn from my mistakes. I will make a fine young Padawan under the right tutelage .
Do you have anyone in Entropy to vouch for you?:
Well I tried to help Hac (I think) out to make a trinket once, but I doubt that counts :P
Have you applied to any other guilds? If so, why?:
I have not. I'm still really close with everyone in The Irregulars and would probably remain close with them.
Is there any other information you would like to share with us?:
I'm sure looking at my UI and my progress and all the logs it would seem like I am an average Joe and this is true, I enjoy simple and fun things with good people, that being said, I am very adaptable and eager to do more and better and learn from people who have more experience than myself. The logs I linked are the only ones I Have - Our GM logged them (I've not been overly bothered with stuff like that lately because of the sorry state of our raiding team which you will surely notice from the logs)
How did you learn about Entropy?:
They have always been the people with really nice gear on our server that weren't in Pathfinders :P
Hey, thanks for taking the time to make a detailed and honest application.
Unfortunately i have to decline you because of a few reasons. One of them being your experience/activity on the warlock you are applying on, 6 days at level 100 is considerably lower than expected for a mythic raider.
You were right about your user interface :P the lack of essential raid addons and keybinds is what really lets your application down
Totally understand. As i said, this is Ivul 3.0. I've played warlock since i started playing WoW almost 7 years ago so the played time on this really doesn't reflect much. Also, getting raid addons really isn't hard :) I just had absolutely no need for more than DBM since all I have been able to do is Heroic, and quite honestly the addons I did try out only got in the way.
I'm a wee bit sad that a UI and apparent lack of play on one character is the reason I got declined but that's all right. May you folks get BH down soon :)
P.S - I'm always available if you would like to drag me along on an alt run to check me out and see that addons and lack of playtime on this particular character really doesn't hold me back. I've outDPSed and tactically performed better many of your fellow guildies in pugs with much less gear :) If you are willing to let me know what I would need to change and give me a second chance I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks again and much love,
