Character name: Newsom @ Chamber of Aspects
Talents: I currently have two Prot specs, one cookie cutter (0/31/10) and one with slight Word of Glory focus (0/31/10)
Are you willing to respec if needed?:
Of course, even if I prefer tanking I have played both Holy and Retribution well in the past. I don't currently have any offspec gear though.

Timezone: CET (Paris time)
Location: Linköping, Sweden
Age: 21 (22 in two weeks)
Can you attend at least 2 out of 3 raids every week?
Easily. I used to raid 5 days/week and haven't missed a single raid in over a year.
Does your connection suck?
No. I have a stable 100 mbit broadband connection. So far it hasn't been down once since I moved into this apartment a year ago.
Previous guild(s) and why did you leave it/them?
I'm currently in Royal on Chamber of Aspects which is the top guild on the server. We have two 10 man teams and the first is very successful, mostly because it mainly consists of alts from Envy. However, they raid at odd hours (usually in the morning or early afternoon) so that they can raid with their mains in the evening. I'm currently raid leading the second team which raids in the evenings together with another officer who is pretty unreliable. I want a more serious approach to raiding than what I'm currently getting, and to be honest I don't want to babysit a whole raid. "Click the Lightwell!"
For most of WOTLK I was the main tank in Core of Insight on Shadowsong. CoI disbanded shortly after patch 4.0.
If you are currently in a guild, did you inform the officers about applying here?
Not here specifically but I've told them I'm looking for another guild.
Are you applying to other guilds than Heretic?
Who do you know in Heretic?
No one I'm afraid. Hoping to change that!
Why do you want to join Heretic?
You are pretty much what I'm looking for in a guild. I like your attitude, you're raiding 25 man and your progress is not bad at all.
What's your raiding experience?
Cataclysm: I've killed everything but the three end bosses on 10 man normal. I've seen Al'akir to 13%, Cho'gall to 4% and Nefarian to phase 2.
WOTLK: cleared pretty much everything, including Herald of the Titans (pre 3.3) and all of ICC on both 10 and 25 man.
TBC: only raided casually on my Shaman. Cleared Karazhan, Zul'Aman and the first few 25 man raids.
Can you provide a log of your performance in a raid?
Sorry, I don't have any logs since Icecrown as my current guild doesn't log. If you think this is really important I can probably log my next raid myself but I have no idea when that would be.
Why do you play the class and spec you play? In what way do you think you will improve our raids?
I love tanking, and I love the utility Paladins bring. I think I can provide you with a smooth tanking experience.
What can you bring to the guild?
A dependable, stable tank who can work well with other people.
Do you have the following addons or programs?
Omen: I still use it. Considering Skada's threat meter instead though.
Anything else you'd like to add?
I hope you can overlook the fact that my current experience (T11) is a bit limited. I know my class extremely well, learn fast and usually don't repeat the same mistake twice.
