Part 1: Personal Information
Name and Age:
Where do you live:
From Sweden but I live in Norway
Tell us a bit about yourself (hobbies/interests outside of WoW):
31 winters, half Swedish half Chile, I live in Norway since 4 years back. Am a freelancing sales agent, sold my own firm 2 years back and still living of savings. Doing some small jobs here and there for previous customers and working together with a friend where we rent out his mansion for different type of events, http://villafenring.no/. I am honestly living a pretty free life. My days consist of exercise at gym about 2-3 days a week for 3-4 hours total.
I love hiking, nature, exploring, new cultures and travel. Gaming has been a big passion for me in life and I’ve been playing MMO’s for over 17 years now and played consoles before that since I was about 8 years old. Kinda popped out of my mums with a 8-bit controller in my hand.
I ride longboard, use to skate and live in Barcelona but destroyed my legament 2011 and my leg has not really been the same since then. I’m a social person with a huge heart, very positive towards life and the people around me. Team spirit kinda guy, believe that is one of the most vital keys to success.
This GoT quote kinda fits into my way of thinking. “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives”
All jokes aside, I’m a very humble guy with a huge passion for World of Warcraft. Games and gains baby!

ToV Mythic (Fury) – Private logs and no screenshot unfortunately..

ToS Mythic (Arms) – https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/kazzak/khaleria
Note : My ToS logs are quite weak I know. I was on a 1½ month vacation/break due to burnout after playing 8-10 hours a day since release. Brought my laptop with me to keep up, thinking I could perform the same which was not the case. Also new to Arms but getting more and more into it. Am home again now tho and will perform much better as I am back @ my station.
Artifact Level (MS/OS):
Arms 61 soon 62 / Fury 60 / Prot 52
Demonstrate that you know your class well. Explain your rotation, stat priority and anything else you think is important:
So rotation wise.
Opener : I use a macro so I C-smash as soon as I charge in on the boss, I then rend and Battle Cry + Bladestorm in another macro to get 1 GCD of when Bladestorm is over which is mainly Mortal Strike unless Stone Heart proc’s so you can Execute once your out of the spin.
Rotation : C-smash for Shattared Defenses and use MS on SD (Shattared Defenses) debuff. Rend and re-rend to keep the bleeding effect active at all times. Use Warbreaker if debuff is not up. Use Stone Heart on proc.
Sub 20% (Execute phase). I execute to get x2 Executioner’s Precision debuff stacks and then if C-smash is up I smash for SD (Shattered Defenses) and Mortal Strike (Also MS if smash is not up to not loose DPS) and keep repeating this without applying rend. Even if rend is taken, rend cost 30 rage to apply and it’s not worth the rage cost instead you use this rage to fuel your Executes for massive damage during the sub 20% part.
Part 3: Experience and Raiding
Please list your previous raiding experience and guilds. Why did you leave them:
Classic World of Warcraft:
Raided MC/BWL/AQ20/AQ40 with <Curse> on Stormscale / Horde as Fury. they then fell apart and leaders + other good players formed new guilds (Rapid Eye Movement, Insert Coin) and I took a break as my motivation died with the guild split. Sadly I missed out on Naxx.
The Burning Crusade:
Did comeback just before release, played almost the entire expansion. Raided on Stormscale / Horde with <nam> as Fury. Did full clears to SWP release. Did Lady Vashj pre-nerf, Kael’thas Sunstrider pre-nerf, Illidan Stormrage pre-nerf. I then took a break as I had a lot going on in school that I had to put all my focus on which lead to the miss of SWP and the sacrifice of WoW and raiding.
Wrath of the Lich King:
Came back around Trial of the Crusader, this time I went Chromaggus / Alliance to join some friends and their guild. We did all bosses Heroic except Anub’arak who actually caused a guild split due to the lack of interest of wiping more and not seeing any progress leaders decided to join forces with another top guild on the server at that time and our guild <First Cohort> died.
I then migrated with some of my friends + other players to a dead realm (Lightning’s Blade) and formed a guild called <Minority> where we did Ulduar full clear and even got a late server first on the Yogg 0 keepers. We then ventured into ICC where we cleared everything up to LK25HC. Sadly we never got him down and at the same time as this progress was at hand I got a new job in another country which was an exclusive offer so then again I had to sacrifice pixels for real life and so I did.
Came back very late, around DS release where I joined with a guild on Xavius / Horde called <No Progress> we progressed the entire tier and cleared it. Did a late clear in FL25HC aswell but not during the release.
Mists of Pandaria :
I played the beginning of MoP but was so bored of the tier that I decided to PvP instead to try reach some of my goals. I formed a RBG team with some real veterans I knew and in Season 13 we did 2485 Rating and got ourselves the Grand Marshal title. This was around the end of Throne of Thunder and the release of Siege of Orgrimmar. I thought SoO looked awesome and I wanted to PvE again. After being burned out on the PvP front I migrated to Shattered Hand / Horde and joined <Crimson> a world 100 guild at that time. We progressed and cleared the entire tier from release until end and announcement of Draenor.
Warlords of Draenor:
Did not play much here, only PvP. Was very focused at my real life and my new job so had no time to play only casual. Did 2500 in 3s as Turbocleave. Joined <Fatalis> 3 month’s before Legion and cleared the current content, just to get it done nothing special (nor was it Cutting Edge).
This expansion had me hooked from the moment I tried it until now and will until the end of the expansion. I’ve noticed a lot of changes both positive and negative. Seeing many good and big guilds being forced to quit or split due to the fact that it’s extremely time consuming. Having loyal players who stay on and stay for the entire expansion now is pretty rare and people get switched out fast as they tend to get burned out of whatever. This is not something that affects me, I have almost 100 days played this expansion so yea I’ve spend an huge amount of time here.
I played with Fatalis on Alliance and did 7/7 Mythic EN and 2/3 Mythic ToV when I decided to go back Horde and reunite with old RL friends. Joined up with <TEAM DONE> and got Guarm and Helya after their progress was done. Did up to Bontanist Mythic with them when the RL decided to quit and noone wanted to step up and take his position so we/they stopped raiding.
After <TEAM DONE> died out I gut scouted by Cragz from <Repose> which was a 4 day raiding guild at that time which I continued the progress in Night Hold with up until 250+ wipes in P1 on Gul’dan. I could not stand the silly mentality they had and how casual they took the raiding even tho it was a 4 day raiding guild, I demanded more progress and a more serious environment so I left them for a 2 day raiding guild called <Essence>.
We cleared NH with a world rank of 306. As the time went by our raid leader started become this complete douchbag towards people in the raid. Called out names and was very rude in general towards everyone creating this toxic raiding atmosphere which was not fun to be part of… Later on he came on the forum saying sorry to everyone but it was kinda too late I felt that the guild would fall apart pretty soon if he kept up so I left and took a break for about 1½ month. When I came back the guild was dead and as I predicted the RL had made the decision to quit raiding so the guild died out.
I’ve been playing casually with some friends in their guild <One Word No Spaces> on Kazzak and am 5/9 Mythic ToS. Tho with a heavy roster of 28 players and a lot of rotation, especially for someone who’s been on a “long” vacation and just been casually playing and performing pretty bad due to the laptop situation on my vacation I kinda want to find myself a solid home with a right mindset and good raiding atmosphere and therefor I’m now searching for a new long lasting home.
Are you able to make 90% of raids in a given month? Wed/Thurs/Sun 8-11pm CEST?
Raiding is my biggest passion and I take it dead serious. I try to attend with 100% but RL stuff happens, it does to anyone. My goal is always 100% and 90% should not be a problem at all. Things that might get in the way is a sudden death / funeral or something like this.
What responsibilities, if any, have you taken lead of during your raiding career?
Not really, only in PVP. I carried a team as Target Caller to 2485 rating in Season 13 MoP and got High Warlord. Other than that I’ve held a bunch of alt raids on optional days.
What resources do you use to improve?
MMO-Champion, Skyhold Discord, Icy-veins, other forums for information and updates also I sim-test all my new parts to try min max my gear.
Part 4: Primal
Why do you think Primal is the guild for you and what do you expect from us?
You seem to be a very solid guild with a fair mindset. Friendship and not just raiders as you said which I agree totally with. Also progressed mind-set and clear content together on a serious phase but having a blast while doing so. I expect active players in a social environment with a serious raiding atmosphere. A long lasting home for the upcoming tiers and events and a place to fit into.
Why should we select you?
Dedicated player with years upon years of knowledge and experience. Both of the game but also the class I am playing. Focused player who does his homework and always come prepared to raids. Friendly and team spirit kinda guy, almost always online grinding something and are always willing to help out or push M+ keys.
