[Malganis][H] <Spike Flail> (7/7M EN, 123M ToV), US#133 | 3 day/10hour (EST) LF DPS, Main Tank

1 post in this topic

Spike Flail on Mal'ganis is a long tenured end-game raiding community, looking for a few more great players to add our to core for Legion progression.


As a guild we've been around since TBC on with the same GM, Raid Leader, and core group. Our exploits include competitive Sunwell progression in TBC, top 50 ranked US progression in WoLK 25m, top 25 of US 10m progress progression in Cata, and top 125 US progression in WoD after taking a break in MoP.
We've done the 4 night/4 hour thing in the past, but as our group of players has grown and aged, we've decided to keep the same hardcore progression mentality on a more time friendly schedule for. As such we raid 3 nights a week with raiding times as follows:

Sunday from 7-11 PM EST
Wednesday from 8 PM EST- 11 PM EST
Thursday from 8 PM EST - 11 PM EST
(We generally take off Thursday and/or Sunday on farm the content when the instance has been cleared)
Our current progression is 7/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare, 1/3 Mythic Trials of Valor at US#177, and are looking for great players to add to our raiding core.

About Spike Flail:
The core of our guild have been playing MMOs together for over 10 years now. We have the same leadership and raiding core as we did all the way back in TBC/WoLK/Cata, and our same GM/Raid Leader has been leading this group of individuals since TBC.
We take raiding extremely seriously, but we also know this is a game and meant to be enjoyed. Our leadership has been raid leading in MMOs for over 10 years now, and know that positive reinforcement and a constructive environment is more effective than an authoritarian style that relies on yelling and screaming. While it sounds cliche and overused, we're honestly proud to say that we're not the type of guild that lacks any patience and has to run raids in a completely the authoritarian manner and forget why we're playing. Our main goal is to maintain a professional environment in which we can play this game and progress as a cohesive team against the hardest challenges gaming has to offer.

What we're looking for:
As 3 day, 10hour per week guild, we need to make every hour we play count. As such we're looking for players who's attitudes and personality fit in with our current group of players. We're looking for people with the same mindset - who understand and value approaching a new challenge by preparing and utilizing all resources they have at their disposal in order to not waste their own time as well as their colleagues'.

We do not recruit for the bench, as such all of our Trials are given equal opportunity as our core raiders, and we can promise that you will see progression as a trial.

Some things we look for in our prospective applicants:
Past Progression experience. We're looking for apps who have been a part of top progression pushes in past content, or are at least Mythic experienced in the current content. Ideally we're looking for people who have knowledge of what it takes to succeed in a progression guild over a prolonged period of time.
Ability to make 90% of our raids.

Dedicated raiding mindset. This includes using consumables on every fight, researching your classes' theorycrafting to min-max to the fullest, being on time and ready for every night, etc.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: We're looking for intelligent human beings, and you should be able to convey your intelligence in how you present yourself. This includes knowing game mechanics, having quick reaction time, and being able to learn from your mistakes. You should be able to explain your classes weakness and strengths, know the theorycraft to min/max your class, and what abilities to use when. You must be able to learn quickly from your mistakes and adapt to new situations, as well as have a strong sense of situational awareness and the ability to multi-task effectively. You also must be able to express yourself in a way that shows you're an intelligent human being.

You can find a much longer post regarding all our expectations and requirements for our applicants at here. I STRONGLY encourage any potential applicant to read over that thread thoroughly before making a decision regarding their application.

Prospective Trials must be completely knowledgeable of their class's theorycraft and mechanics, dedicated and dependable raiders, and overall knowledgeable and skilled players. Our specific class needs are as follows:

High Priority:
Warlock
Shadow Priest 
Death Knight (DPS)
Mage
Guardian Druid
Protection Warrior
Protection Paladin
Brewmaster Monk
Blood Death Knight

Mid Priority:
Druid (Balance)
Hunter

A Note: We are not recruiting this many players. We simply have a lot of options available to what classes we can take. Some members have alts/offspecs they can choose to if we find a certain class. We also just have a general need for good players, so we're open to most classes at the moment. That's why we have so many on our list.
How to contact us:

If you're interested in applying, you can visit our forums at www.spikeflail.com and put an application in on the appropriate forum. Please be sure to read all the stickies before applying; if you can't be bothered to read the stickies and follow application directions you probably will not be considered for a Trial. You also can chat with myself (Pallinn - Palin#1620 Btag) or any other Spike Flail officer (Marko#1989 and/or Nikolai#1962)
Please be sure to read over all the information we've presented on our forum before making a decision to apply. If you think you meet our requirements and agree with our philosophy towards raiding, feel free to pursue it. However please don't belittle yourself by simply glancing over our information and tossing an application with no effort behind it. The application process is partly an attempt to weed our those who can't read stickies or form a proper sentence, so please remember that an application is your first impression, so try to make it as well crafted as possible.

Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!

      17 traits
      Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/21010315/10/#metric=bossdps

      My DPS is really comically low. These logs are old and I hadn't read the compendium at the time, but even after doing that I can't stay above like 160k on target dummies. Simcraft is telling me I should be pushing close to 300k, and the people in the Warrior discord tell me that I should be able to get pretty close to those numbers.

      So can someone just come meet me in Skyhold and help me out or something? I've read about the rotation, and had people tell me it, but I just need someone to like see what I'm doing wrong or something.

      I'm Boogal on Emerald Dream US, horde side. Send me a whisper or reply here I guess.
