Warning: the post below contains cusswords and CAPS OF RAAAAAAAAGE. You know, kind of like a normal post, only more so.
I can be very sweet and mellow.
I can also be ragingly impatient.
I’m an intellectual snob-I’ll give you that. I’m a smart cookie and I get very upset to look around and sometimes see a lot of dumb doughnuts mixed in with my cookie-friends. I wanted to do Maly and OS+1 last night. I was determined to pug if I had to, and I did. I also begged the favors of friends.
You can imagine how pleased I was to only get OS done. Without a drake.
To (Some Of) My Guildies,
“Oh I don’t want PUGS!” Some cried. Well guess what-the pug rogue out DPSed all of you. The hunter still wearing blues? Was #3. The WARLOCK STILL WEARING A FUCKING LEVEL 60 TRINKET OUT DPS’D SOME OF YOU. Okay…two of you. But what the hell.
(Some of my guildies were, of course, fucking amazing-and I’m not forgetting you guys. I dragged you into this half-baked raid of mine, and you came and did not suck, and I’ll love you for it!)
Dear Everyone In General,
Maly hurts! Why the hell on phase three were you all so bound and determined to give him a fucking hug? I know 3-D space is difficult, people, but if I can handle it why the fuck can’t you? I’m TERRIBLE at phase 3! Terrible! And I know that near Maly = ouch! So…don’t get near the damned dragon! You know how on KT, you don’t want to stand near me because I have like, 23k mana raid buffed? Yeah. You don’t want to get near Maly, either. No really…you don’t…WHY THE HELL ARE YOU ALL GOING OVER THERE. I BACKED AWAY FROM HIM AT THE START FOR A REASON. AWAAAAY. AWAY. GOD DAMN IT.
Also, I know that OS was buggy. The waves were doing funny things, like re-submerging, and making it kind of hard to see where they were. But again: if I can get out of the damn fire…lil’ ol’ me, one of THE most easily distractable, totally not spatially aware people in the world can get out of the damn fire, then you, sir, can manage to not get hit by the wave every single fucking time!
Of course tonight, I will promptly repeat my performance in Udluar and….die in a fire (o hai, Razorscale).
But not in OS, people! One drake isn’t hard! It’s not, honest! No really! It isn’t!
“There’s nothing for me in there” is NOT a valid reason to pass on instance runs. No. It’s not. Because you know what? There’s gear for me there, best in slot gear (or close). And there’s gear for other people there. Those other people will be in part responsible for our success (or failure) in Ulduar. I know that’s hard to believe, but the other people in your raid matter. Funny how that works, innit?
I basically give up on ever running a successful Maly 25, or OS+1. These fell off the guild calender, and thus vanished into the void…never to be seen by me…
And either Ulduar will sharpen the skills of people who got lazy in Naxx, or the guild will asplode.
Let’s see, shall we?
Ironically, we’re now hurting for healers…when we used to have too many. Oi!
One of our druids hasn’t logged on in 13, 14 days. I wish I knew what happened to him! Having had guildies manage to die in car accidents before, I’m a smidge paranoid…
