Recent Warcraft Logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/ravencrest/karshi
Why do you want to join Depthcore? : High quality without having to raid 4 times a week, every week is something I value highly in a guild. Furthermore, I like how the guild values all the real factors which makes someone an excellent raider which I found on your wowprogress page under the "What sort of player do we want?" section.
Name x2 things you love to see in a raiding guild: A positive atmosphere amongst players which strive to maximize their personal performance to benefit the raid team and not their logs. In addition, I love a guild which doesn't just meet up 3 times a week to raid but socialize regularly whether that's on WoW or other games.
Name x2 things you hate to see in a raiding guild: A guild with low energy and a lack of excitement around raiding is something I hate, raiding is meant to be fun and not a chore even when progressing for high ranks. Also, toxicity and narcism beyond the realms of banter and sarcasm are just unnecessary and is something I tend to avoid and wouldn't want to see in a guild.
What are your views around benching people for raid composition or performance issues?: Benching is a part of progression raiding, I've never been benched for performance and I put that down to researching my spec and making sure I maximize my personal performance on every boss.
What would you consider to be the "Hardest" encounter for you so far?: That would be between Mannoroth or Cenarius Mythic, both were very tough bosses and acted as a strong "trash stopper" prior to final bosses due to their intense healing requirements and individual skill to kill the boss.
How do you keep your character up-to-date?: I rarely read guides for feral as the quality simply isn't there for an underplayed spec, to combat this I theory craft my own setups and analyze logs such that I am up to par. I know what metrics are important for a feral druid and if I feel as though my performance was below par for a night I will spend time analysing my own logs to see where my errors are.

Do you have anything special to tell us?: You should never look a dolphin in the eyes
Additional information: I intend on finishing this tier with my current guild as to not fuck them over, however, if I were to be excepted and you would want me to immediately start raiding with you on reclears, then I would have a chat with my GM.
Any Alts?: Lampus - Ravencrest (Warlock)

Tell us a joke: Applying to a guild which recently got Rank 327 as a feral in 2018.
Final comments: Feral is going to be buffed in 8.1 which will reduce ramp time on target switching and being able to multi-dot more effectively, thereby making the spec more competitive rather than just having to be that much better than others in the roster to get a raid spot.
