Screenshot of my internet, not as good as I’d like it to be, but it’s as much as I can aspire in my current location (Spanish Internet LUL):



I attach a kill video of Mythic Guarm if u are more interested on the UI:


More info:            



How or where did you hear about us?

You’re one of the higher ranking 3-day raiding guilds on EU in wowprogress, so it’s pretty easy to hear about you.



Why Vanguard?  

To have such a good progress with a 3-day schedule means that you are efficient during raid time, which I enjoy, and fits my schedule perfectly.

Also you have similar progression as my previous guild (spoiler, it disbanded 2 days ago), so I think I have the necessary experience to be an asset to your guild.


Mutual benefit?


Epiphany taught me that it is possible to achieve high degrees of progression outside of the 5-day raiding system that is ever prevalent in Spain, and I want to continue with that model, and I belive Vanguard fits that model


Explain the steps of your gearing and gemming thoughts:


Frost DK after certain crit levels starts to be a balancing game, since Mastery values start to increase. However u don’t want your crit to go much lower than 30%, nor your haste to go lower than 20%, or your RW uptime plummets faster than NA at worlds.


But to keep it simple, at the moment:


STR>Crit (~30%)>Haste(~20%)>Mastery=>Versatility(until 7%)>Crit>Haste


Explain in great detail, fight for fight, how you approach them in terms of important timings relating to your class and it's abilities, what glyphs and talents you take for them specifically:


I’ll limit the explanation to NH bosses(I have legendary ring AND Convergence of Fates), Talent choices don’t change much for frost DKs, since the tier bonuses buff Howling Blast to such a stupid degree, that even on ST, Horn of Winter is not worth it.:


Skorpyron: Granted, it’s a meme boss, but to pad to the maximum I ensure to position myself between the packs of adds for maximum RW value.

In my guild we lusted on pull, so I would BoS on pull as well, doubling HRW on it, and most of the time BoS will last long enough for the exposed carapace phase and be ready for the following exposed carapace.


Chronomatic Anomaly: Strategy changes if I’m on the bitch group or not.

Bitch group: BoS on Pull, using only 1 charge of HRW, and saving my racial (Blood Elf), and renewal of RW on the way to the add, in order to generate RP midway.

Fury of Sindragosa used on the 4 small ads, and popping IF if targeted by the big add, for some mad Death Strike healing.


Return to the boss and use double HRW on next BoS, since I’ll be on the boss most of its duration this time.


Not on bitch group: Double HRW on first BoS and just cleave away for mad padding.


Saving Wraith Walk if I’m affected by Time Bomb to move out quickly (then painfully return as fast as my small DK legs allow me)


Trilliax: BoS on pull, if cake is nearby, pop Wraith Walk and pick it up, if not, I’ll soak cakes after big beam of death.

Fury of Sindragosa used when add spawns.

Sadly I’m melee, so I don’t even know how the robots are called. (Melee mechanics)

Spell Blade Aluriel: BoS on pull with double HRW, and will have 5-15s (RNJesus pls) of uptime remaining for frost adds. Switching targets to the big frost Add.

 Using 1 fury of sindragosa on the first set of frost adds, and the last set of arcane adds. Using BoS on pull allows me to have it ready for first set of fire adds, second set of frost adds, and last set of arcane adds.

As a DK, I have the ability to correct misspositioning of fire adds with Death Grip, or having a total of 4 ways of interrupting in fire phase (Pillar of Frost is active, so RW will stun, BElf racial, Mind Freeze, and Grip).


Krosus: Usually soaking on the front row.


Fury of Sindragosa used in pull, so it is available on the last burning pitch

BoS used on pull with 2 activation of HRW, since it will have enough uptime to damage the first set of adds.

I save my second BoS together with pillar of frost for the next set of adds, so I can AOE stun if needed, while nuking any remaining adds, I don’t use HRW on this BoS.


I delay the Next BoS a bit since it sincs up with the bridge collapsing, using double HRW on this one, and it will be up for the remainder of the fight.


Tichondrius: There are different strategies for this Boss, my guild used to do it with the adds on the boss (killing them on Echoes of the void) and not blowing up any brands.


Double HRW on pull, and I will have BoS up for the first echoes of the void.


On saving any rime procs and runes 5-sec prior to second echoes of the void, and using pillar of frost, since it will be up during the next BoS anyways.


On Illusionary Night, gripping any far away bats, and trying to get an orb to use FoS (Fury of Sindragosa) on 5-7 bats.


BoS with 1 HRW on next phase, and since I stacked max RP on bat phase, I’ll be able to BoS up for Echoes of the Void.


Same strategy on the following Echoes, and Illusionary Night.


Double HRW on the following BoS, nuke Watcher, Boss, Adds, and Boss.


Botanist: Again, not a lot of mechanics for the melee on this Boss. Fury of Sindragosa is aimed at the adds of the first dispel, and the adds of the first dispel on the last phase.


On pugs I tend to be obligated to chain some adds on grip if they are about to catch some caster slacking, but generally is not necessary on raid teams-


Don’t get hit by stupid solar beam, and step away from orbs dying on second phase.


DKs are able to soak some spores and then dispelling the debuff with Anti-Mechanical Shell.


As for BoS usage, double HRW on pull, doing a BoS with no HRW on the second Phase, and using double HRW on the last phase, since the boss needs to FUCKING DIE REALLY FAST.


Star-Bro Augur: Fuck this Boss, and his triple Icy Ejections ruining my perfect BoS opener.




Double HRW on pull the first BoS, since on Fel Phase, there isn’t enough time to get the full value of a HRW’d BoS, and my guild used to lust there, so I had enough uptime without HRW, this way I can save a double HRW BoS for the last phase, where most of the damage is needed.




Anti-Mechanical Shell and Wraith Walk are pretty useful in this Boss.




AMS allows me to either drop Icy Ejection really early and be in my position for Grand Conjuction, or to dispel Fel Ejection.




On the flip-side if I get targeted by The ejection during Grand Conjuction I can wait for my partner to dispel the brand, and move away with Wraith Walk, since I’m immune to the slow.


And finally




Grand Magistrix Elisande: I’m missing my withered crack-heads in this fight, cmon…

Interrupt Blue Add, Grip Pink Add, Move away from Beams, Interrupt Boss on last phase.


On Mythic this bitch has to die really quickly on the first phase, however she tends to blink to China, so using double HRW tends to not be worth it on this phase, so I save it for either the second Phase, or the Third Phase, depends if I’m getting buffed by Rune of The Fallen Crusader or not.


Then loot Convergence of Fates






Gul’Dan: Dankness Incarnate.


Saving BoS when the first add spawns, probably do a double HRW, since in second phase there is a point where BoS is up, but Storm of the Destroyer is coming up in about 15-20 seconds, so I can do a BoS without HRW there, and have another double HRW ready when Illidan gets debuffed.


Not really sure where Fury of Sindragosa is specially good, perhaps on first add then saving until Illidan is debuffed? Not sure, need to test it.


Other than that, save Rime procs if Eyes are soon for maximum cleavage.


What separates the very best players of your class from those who are just great? (Think mechanics, not generalization)


Not panicking over BoS: Most DKs I see just spend all the runes then press the BoS button, and press HRW asap, however I tend to visualize what runes are coming up, and spamming that obliterate button in case of being blessed with Runic Empowerment procs, but not using it right away.


Only point where using HRW right away is encouraged, is if you have CoF and legendary ring, in order to not waste CoF procs, especially if u plan to double HRW on that BoS.


Saving up RP for incoming BoS is really important, moreover if u plan to not use HRW on that moment (best example is Star Augur, where on Fel Phase is just not worth it).


Other than having the presence of mind that you are not the most mobile class for target swapping, or not to drop your BoS for that matter.


Grip is REALLY good where it can be used (I’ve saved multiples wipes with that ability on Aluriel alone), and it’s one of the few utilites a frost DK can bring.


Other than MAD cleave dmg.


Using Fury of Sindragosa to its maximum potential, where to use if u can multiple times, and hitting the maximum amount of “real targets” (Trilliax padders, *cough*)

Guild History: 

I’ve played since WotLK so I’ll just list the ones that are somewhat relevant from a raid PoV:


Faith- Zul’Jin: Cleared all of Ulduar, Algalon included, ToC (managed to get a Trial of Insanity on 10-man), but guild died on Arthas 25HC

Aur Redemptum-Zul’Jin: Cleared Arthas25HC before pre-patch (can’t remember the % dmg buff) 


Cataclysm: Mostly casual raiding




Emotive- Dun Modr: Joined on SoO, managed to clear on 25HC before WoD prepatch.




Emotive- Dun Modr: Guild died on Brackenspore Mythic.


Legends of Wanderings – Dun Modr: Didn’t manage to clear Mythic Imperator. Stopped blaing on BRF since I decided to try-hard on LoL


Legion: Misery – Dun Modr: Guild of Friends, cleared 7/7M EN, 2/3 M ToV, and left when we were 2/10M on NH. Left due to schedule issues


Epiphany – Tarren Mill: Learned the bliss of efficient 3-day raiding. Guild disbanded Wednesday progressing trough Star Augur last phase. (7/10M)





Easiest way to contact you?: e-mail: shaindralah@gmail.com

B.net: Shaiz#2630


Discord: Shailen#4395

Anything else you would like to add?


It is a long read, dunno if u will appreciate it or just hate me for it. But I really want to continue progressing through Legion’s content as efficiently or more than I’ve done this past month.


I try really hard to be amongst the best of my class, testing different stat balances.


And I’m a big M+ addict.


Except Skittsh week


Fuck Skittsh Weeks

You definately applied at an opportune time. We just had one of our main DK dps, quit the guild.

Your UI seems functional, I'm more of a minimalistic UI player. Aslong as it isn't just basic I'm good with it, shows you care enough to optimize.


As for logs, I'll let other DPS players comment on that.


For now, just welcome and gl with your application.

Yeah, I know I've been thinking of tuning up MSBT a bit more, so it isn't as big.


I guess I've been just lazy, since it isn't that much of a hindrance.


Thanks, and I'm looking forward to the response :)

Hello Shailen. Sorry for the slow reply. After further discussion we have unfortunately decided to decline you. Best of luck in your search for a new guild.
