So last night’s Naxx run was…uh…
…not great. It started off with Zoja-aka mah Josh-running late, because he hadn’t fully gotten his new computer up and running yet.
“Didn’t he have time between getting home and the raid, Amber?”
Well, yeah, but I took it. So there. Josh is a smart man and knows that I win, even over a shiny new computer that gets like 80 fps in Naxx25 (I hate you, Josh).
So anyway, he was installing vent and stuff and running a bit behind. We also had a couple of no shows, and Steve morphed into CRANKY STEVE. There’s something about a cranky GM that’s contagious, unfortunately, and I had to…gently remind…one of our officers that yelling shut up over vent wasn’t terribly conductive. Despite the air of stupid in the raid that night, we weren’t quite that bad.
Not to say that I was not cranky. I was cranky, trust me. Do you know how to make a healer cranky? Let me tell you a few ways:
-Say sarcastically after a wipe: “Thanks for the heals.”
One of our DPS did this last night, and it’s just as well we only did one boss after that because he entered the No Heals For You Zone. Where the fuck was the DPS, man? If you’d killed it faster you totally wouldn’t have needed heals! It was an accidental double pull in this case (to my understanding-this healer was hanging around the boss for lewtz). When extra mobs are pulled, who tends to die first? If you guessed THE HEALERS, then CONGRATS YOU WIN!!!! Seriously, what the hell? I again “gently” reminded people not to make those sort of remarks.
-Say, on the Dance Master Boss, that you need cleanses.
No shit? So do a dozen other people. Bite me.
It would go faster if all the healers were actually cleansing, but that’s another kettle of fish.
Also, touching upon the whole raiding with a significant other topic: I am not his fucking babysitter. Dating a raid leader and tank apparently has its issues.
Where is he? What, do I look like a Josh GPS Tracker? I don’t know-he got up and left the room. He mentioned getting food, didn’t he? Then he’s probably in the kitchen! I don’t feel the need to give minute by minute Josh Updates to the five people who whisper me.
Is he going to dock his own DKP for being late? No, he’s totally going to be a douche and abuse the fact that he is Teh DKP Mastah by breaking his own damn rules! For some reason being asked that irritated the ever living shit out of me. Actually, I know the reason, and it has to do with people essentially questioning the integrity of my boyfriend. DIAF. Yes, I know he’s sometimes a tardbucket. He’s the Most Awesome Ever Boyfriend, but not always the Most Awesome Ever Raid Leader. Deal. Still, he’s not going to abuse the system that way.
Is he alt tabbed again? Yeah, probably. He’s like a hyperactive little kid sometimes-always has to be doing something. Seriously, I left him alone in the car once to do something real quick and I came back to find that he’d taken apart his dashboard. The guy is wickedsmart, but that also means that any idle time-even in raids-finds his attention wandering. Don’t worry, I am here for you to turn to whenever he doesn’t instantly respond to-wait, what? No! Leave me the fuck alone! I am not his god damned answering service!
Whatever, I got the Forethought Talisman last night. Woo!
