As of today I have successfully made it through 25 years of life without anyone giving into the urge to throttle me to death. This is a good thing. I think.
Despite AN’s mockery of me over the weekend (I never want to run another heroic ever again), last night’s cobbled together Altastic Naxx10 run was kind enough to hand me epix. Lyr is now slightly less scrub, complete with wings. This is good, because we’re going to clear Naxx25 tonight and then it’s all priest all the time! Right? Right? I can see my guildies eyeing my still heavily blue gear and sighing. C’mon, PEW PEW LAZERS! I’m not sure how running with two disc priests will fly, exactly, but Ron and I are smart cookies and we’ll figure that out.
Blizzard was kind enough to randomly drop this in my lap:
It now amuses me greatly to have Lyr run around on a bear.
For the curious, this is what Lyr looks like masquerading as a human:
Apparently she embraces an inner rebel I didn’t know she had and went for a nose ring.
Levitate is the best. Shit. Ever. Yes, I look around for places that would be pretty to levitate in front of. What of it?!
Also, to everyone who thought that DKs who wore spellpower items were just a joke:
“Well duh,” you might be saying. “His name is Ipwnforfree, what did you expect?” Was this fellow a pug? No, no. This is a guildmate. Fortunately he’s good natured about being a nooblet, and after being told the error of his ways and being dragged through our Altastic Naxx, he asked for every single piece of gear that had spellpower on it. Tardbucket. Josh now gets to teach the “lrn2DK” lessons, because Ipwnforfree also happens to be the GM’s roommate and Steve announced that he couldn’t bear to live with a scrub. For my part, I will continue to lol in Tim’s general direction for his name alone. Lovingly, of course. Because it’s all about the good-natured ribbing in this crazy crew.
To my bemusement, some of said good-natured ribbing caused an OMG ANGRY! explosion on our guild forums. I made a post stating to sign up for raids even if you thought we had too many of a particular role signed up-after all, shit happens, and we might have to tweak for raid balance. In said post, I referred to Kyr as our “shadow bitch”, because he’s been kind enough to flop over to his shadow priest alt when we were a little healer-ful and needed an extra DPS. I consider Kyr a friend and we (openly!) appreciate his willingness, so to me it was a harmless joke. Unfortunately one member decided to asplode at me with CAPS OF RAGE over what he perceived as a great sign of disrespect.
For the record, threatening to jump ship and take other members with you is not usually considered to be in good taste. Especially over something minor like that.
