Guild and raid info
Previous guilds and your reason(s) for leaving them:
KeKThisOut - Social guild attempting mythic, got a small taste of NH, ToS. Inadequate raid leading for meaningful mythic progression.
Exiled - Current guild, got to experience 10/11m Antorus, 7/8m Uldir and 6/9m BoD. While getting CE was a reality for each tier, the guild has struggled under attendance issues, especially since losing the original raid lead and most core members by BFA's start. Raid leading had become more lax and attendance waned more and more until the setup crumbled by the time we started Mekka attempts. TL;DR guild doesn't raid any more.
How did you hear about Inner Sanctum?
Knuckle poked me and that was that; the other alternative was getting curve pugged and sitting back for the tier. I'm still very much interested in mythic, but it's very difficult to get back again with most familiar faces having dropped the game/transferred.
Why Inner Sanctum and why should we accept YOU?
Again, interested in continuing mythic raiding, but that's just not happening on my home realm. I can perform well and do try pushing for an extra edge on fights where able. Performance on mechanics always comes first, no matter the role.
Do you know anyone from Inner Sanctum in-game or irl already? If yes, who and will they vouch for you?
Knuckle, essentially why I'm applying right now. Willing to vouch.
What is your raid experience (on any character and including past experience)?
4/10 NH, 3/9 ToS, 10/11 ATBT, 7/8 Uldir, 6/9 BoD
What do you expect from raiding in Inner Sanctum
Likeminded people who are interested in genuinely improving both on a personal level and as a raid team. That's a core interest that has felt off balance during prior guild raid experience. Azuremyst/Stormrage is also a pretty tiny set of players to choose from, so being able to build a reliable raiding team is and has been a legitimate challenge.
Do you have a microphone and are you willing to use it during raids?
Yes. It's been a bit of a personal roadblock, but I'm willing to adjust to using a mic for comms consistently. It'd be absolutely mandatory if I end up tanking.
Can you attend all of our raid times listed in the rules? How often do you expect to miss a raid? (note we have an 80% attendance requirement and do track raider attendance).
Yes. Rarely. I was probably at like 99-99.5% attendance with my current guild. I remember missing one, maybe two raids in 3 tiers.
How much do you play outside of raiding times?
If the state of the game is good for me, I don't do much else with my spare time.
How would you describe yourself as a raider?
I think I perform well, but my main faults to this day have been very minimal voice comms and skimping on pots. I intend to fix both of those. The latter in particular was an effect of very tedious re-progression days that prior guilds would have, where my improved output would not save players X, Y and Z from failing mechanics and causing a wipe.
What addons do you use to improve your raiding performance?
DBM, Details, WA, EXRT: standard stuff

Please supply combat logs of some of your previous kills:https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/8252604
I don't want to cherry pick my best logs, as far as damage as fury goes I've gravitated around 75-80 percentile with minimal farm reclears in BFA. Tanking has not been an active part of BFA for me in raiding, however I would end up tanking 9/11m Antorus with almost no mythic tanking xp in a pug raiding community late in the expansion.
Please supply a link to the armory of any relevant alts you're playing:
I have 8 alts on alliance that I can funnel time and gear into, but as of now none are prepared for this tier, at best at ~400 ilvl. That being said I don't feel anchored to my main and can switch to something more in demand for the raiding setup as progression.. progresses.https://raider.io/characters/eu/azuremyst/Aratheliahttps://raider.io/characters/eu/azuremyst/Khoraganhttps://raider.io/characters/eu/azuremyst/S%C3%B3lkaenhttps://raider.io/characters/eu/azuremyst/Kiddohttps://raider.io/characters/eu/azuremyst/Kiyiyahttps://raider.io/characters/eu/azuremyst/Summersonghttps://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/chara ... remyst/aimhttps://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/chara ... emyst/edge

NB: While I am applying as protection/fury, I have no issues with gearing a more in demand spec or class. I'm anxious to continue mythic raiding.
