    * Upgrades Available Outside of 25man Raids:For prot bulwark of the amani empire from
jan'alai boss in za.
For my holy set there are numerous upgrades mainly badge gear. 
For ret there are also numerous upgrades mainly badge gear.
    * Why did you choose your class? What are your class' strengths and weaknesses? :I
picked a paladin because i had heard some other people talk about how they could do a
little bit of everything.  I think the strength of a paladin is durability and utility. 
While not as flexible as druids paladins are able to tank, heal, and also dps depending
on how you spend talent points.  They also provide a lot of utility to raids with buffs
and some of their special abilities such as blessing of protection and cleanse.
   
* Explain briefly the reasons behind your current gear choices.  And why you have
selected your current talent build:I like tanking.  Its fun to pull a room full of mobs
and have them stick to ya while people AOE.  My gear changes depending on the fight. 
Sometimes I'll stack more spell damage and sometimes more mitigation. As for talents I
use the basic prot pally build but I usually put 2 points in pursuit of justice instead
of spell warding.  Spell warding is better as far as overall damage reduced, but I like
having the extra 10% movement provided by pursuit of justice.  When I'm holy or ret my
talents change depending on if I'm specced for pvp, instances, or raids. 
   
* For DPS classes: What is your normal dps rotation during a boss fight? :when I'm
ret I generally start out by judging seal of the crusader then put seal of command back
up followed by avenger strike judgement of command.  After vengeance stacks and tank has
planety of threat i'll use avenging wrath, and trinket. 
   
* What are your favorite websites/spreadsheets for theorycrafting and raid
strategies? :bosskillers.com, youtube.com, elitistjerks.com, and I like talkin to
experienced players who I know and trust about fights. 
   
* Previous Guilds and reasons for leaving:midnight runners-guild failed, only had 10
people in it when I left and only 3 of them were level 70, cosa nostra-gm had a baby and
left the game.  Also lost some of our core members and after a couple weeks of not
raiding due to not very many people online we began losing people very quickly.
Currently in acme which is a group of the cosa nostra people that wanted to stay
together. 
   
* Why you are applying to Bloodsworn: I've always been interested in raiding with a
dedicated group of hardcore raiders and Calgone told me to apply.
   
* Comments:My prot set is my best followed by holy, and my ret set isn't too bad.  I
have no problem with playing whatever spec best helps the guild.  I know a couple people
in the guild Calgone and Verickk and they're good people.
