    Tell us a little about yourself
    Hey I'm Shakes, in my late 30's i prefer to spend several evenings during the week killing myself into big bad bosses. I have that harmfull habit since 2005, when i didn't managed to resist social pressure and tried this dope. Sorry, mama, i never listened to you.
    Despite playing this game for ages, my brains are still floating in endorphins every time i do smth cool in game. And while i'm not 100% happy with game state, i try to focus on good thing in it, and overall be positive.
    My raiding experience is somewhat mixed bag. I raided alot and havily in TBC and Lich, but then 2 my kids were born one after another and i almost never raided for several years. I raided normals in Draenor and heroics in Legion in a small friend'and'family orientated guild, and in BFA i went for some mythic progression and rlly enjoyed that. I never had CE yet. So i'm looking towards 8.3, expecting it to be a great raid and hoping to become a part of ur team in that sweet sweet progression period.

    Enter your WoW character, up to 5 may be added.

    Would you consider playing any of these characters as your main with guild support to gear up?
    My warlock is my first ever maid char in wow, its my main for last 6 years and i would progress raid only as warlock.
    I use pala to tank for my small social group of friend for weeklies m+, when needed, so i can use it sometimes on split runs, or as feeder for plates in m+.

    Please list Warcraft Logs / World of Logs parses or similar.

    its not all kills i had this tier, but other logs are private, or were deleted.
    Queen progress
    Last queen progress night i had, - maybe you will find some needed info there.

    Why do you play your Class?
    Mostly class fantasy, but also i enjoy 'spinning plates' gameplay affly has. Fair amount of defence and survavability for caster is a big point for me.

    What are your classes strong and weak points? How is your class valuable?
    Warlock major weakness is movement. We are slow, and nither demonic circle, nor burning rush are solving that issue. Affly is very weak at target switch, Demolocks can't cleave if targets not stacked, Destro do very little ST dmg outside burst window, and struggle on heavy movement fights.
    But we have quite unique utility, - gates and hs, Affliction can do very well on ST, and has very strong offencive cd's, Demo and Destro are one of the strongest atm at their niche - stacked or unstacked cleave.
    It seems to me, that warlocks are not the best at anything in raids, but can be good at anything, depending on req, its versatile and more or less balanced class.

    In which fights have you been in charge of handling special game mechanics in your raiding career?
    Most recently would be soaking arcane orbs on queen, was doing charge on gronk at somepoint, can't remember anything else.
    I always kinda try to do mechanics first, and volonteer if smth needs to be done by most usefull raid member 'mr. someone'.

    Raid UI screenshot - in raid content.
    i have no saved atm, but will do some in lfr later

    Computer specs
    ryzen 5 2600x, GtX 2060, 16gb ram, 27' monitor

    What would you say are the 3 most important addons that you use?
    For raiding Bigwigz, weak auras and details! to see what i did wrong.

    Do you have an authenticator?
    No

    How did you hear about Foundation, and what made you consider applying?
    was looking for a guild with rt after 21st on wowprogress, then watched couple of streams, and decided to try my luck

    We use Discord to communicate during raids. Ability to connect to this is mandatory.
    Do you have a headset with a microphone and are you able to communicate verbally in English?

    Sure. but my English might have quite strong accent, tho. It shouldn't be any issues with understanding or communication, at least I never had them before.

    Any questions for us or anything else you would like to add?
    Not atm, no. But i quite sure i'll have them later.


    Best regards, Shakes

    Accepted for trial, we're aiming for azshara reclear before end of tier, but we can't promise this .

    Your trial will probably be quite lengthy n may roll in to next tier, so don't worry if it does, but we'll see what happens
