Spec, Talents, Stat Priority (with reasoning): Restoration. As I am not back in to the swing of things yet, I can't comment on the current stat priority. I assume it is something like: Int > Spirit > Haste to some breakpoint for Riptide/ELW/Healing Rain ticks > then some combination of mastery and crit. I haven't healed yet with the new capped mana system, so I don't know how spirit fits in there, but I assume it is pretty important.
Link to a WoL parse of you performing at your best: Anything I would be able to show you from last year has expired.
Screenshot of your UI:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPu-Ge6XeaI Currently, that video is the only thing I can offer you. That was during the first tier of Cata when my 10 man guild was killing Omnitron HM for the first time. The PoV of the video swaps a couple times, but I am the shaman in the video and I expect my UI to be end up being very similar to that after I get a chance to put on together.
Previous guilds and why you left them: My most recent guild was <Bad> on Dragonmaw. The guild basically fell apart after H Rag before Dragon Soul. I can't tell you how many pulls I put in on H Rag, but I never got a kill due to being sat the night they killed him (there was not a high demand for resto shaman on that fight), and then never having enough people to do it again.
Timezone: Montana - MST (for now)
Raid Experience (Including past expansions): I will try to be brief: Vanilla: Everything (while it was relevant) except for 4HM, Loatheb, Saph and KT from original Naxx. BC: Everything (while it was relevant) except for Sunwell. The guild that I finished BT and MH with fell apart before Sunwell was released. This was when I met Interesting/Functional. WotLK: Everything (while it was relevant) except for Heroic LK. Cata: Everything (while it was relevant) except for Dragon Soul. I quit the game in Oct of 2011.
Since then I have played SW:ToR on a hardcore basis. Quit that because of various things wrong with the game and everyone else had started to quit. Recently I have played GW2, but recently stopped, because it just turned out not to be what I was looking for out of a MMO (it doesn't have vertical progression or the trinity of class roles).
Why are you interested in joining <Space People>?: I have a friend that raids with you guys and from what I could gather from vent the other night, you seem like a cool group of people. I also like the 3 nights a week raiding. If you schedule any more than that, it seems to feel like a job.
Can you commit to a Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 7-11PM server hour Raid schedule?: Yes. I will say that since I graduate in a week, I will be starting a job hunt soon. I can't predict what Job I will end up with, or where in the country I will end up. I do not expect any job that I get to conflict with this schedule, but as soon as I know anything, you guys will be the first to know. I only bring this up because at some point I might need to miss raids if I have to travel for an interview or because I am moving.

In the spirit of fairness, I decided to make an app. I know we talked on vent a few days ago, I just wanted to make sure I don't seem like I am assuming I get a spot. Some of you know that I have been away from WoW for about a year, so that will affect certain parts of this app, but I will do my best.
I forgot to add: I know you said you are interested in my Shaman, which is perfectly fine, but I wanted to let you know that I also have an 85 Druid, Hunter, Paladin or Rogue I could just as easily xfer and play. I would also be willing to power level a priest if you would rather have me heal on that. I know you have a Monk/Pally healer already, I just wasn't sure what the best 3 healer combo is. If you will be best served with me on a shaman, I am 100% in, just wanted to offer.
We'll get you in the guild and once you've leveled and gotten some gear I'd be happy to trial you. It'll be a gap in hearing since we're already doing heroic modes, but hopefully you get lucky with LFR gear. Also you can heal our alt raid for extra gear. Talking to you the other night I got a sense of what player you'll be, and experience is always good. Welcome aboard.
If leveling a priest wouldn't take too long, I would really prefer that. They are insanely strong right now and offspec shadow would also be nice, since we already have an elemental shaman. If it's too much trouble though Shaman will be fine, but Priests really do own right now in the healing department.
Keep in mind that currently I would have to start from level 1 on a priest. It is a long story, but basically I don't have a priest character yet, and I don't have a 80 level boost to use. Just wondering if that changes your preference.
Also, if I do have to make a priest, I have been trying to figure out the best race. I assume Troll is best for DPS, and its between goblin and panda for healing? Thoughts? Suggestions?
It's complicated. I had accepted a scroll back in march, but never claimed the rewards. I just recently tried to use the level boost from that scroll, and it never boosted my character to 80.
I do have one more option I am looking into. I have another account attached my account, so I think I can use a scroll on that account, boost a priest to 80, then transfer it to my base account. It's worth a shot.
