Apparently if I bitch on my blog about not getting trophies, I get a trophy. So excuse me while I bitch about it one more time, just in case.
That said, I peeked at WoW-heroes and saw that I was…#30 in guild. There are alts above me. I am a victim of three things: random loot tables, fail dice rolls, and being too nice.
I am, for example, still wearing an ilevel 200 ring. Rings have dropped. Rings have dropped and even only had one or two other people rolling on them. Did I roll, too? Oh hell no. That ring has mp5 on it…fuck if I’m going to roll against a shaman for an mp5 ring, no matter how much it trashed my other ring in all other stats.
Said shaman would slap me aside the head for that, but there you go.
Getting gear as a priest is a lot harder than getting gear as a healing paladin, that’s for sure. I kind of LOL at Josh, who bitches about rolling against 2 or 3 other people for tanking gear. Honey, do you know how many mages we have?
And how many warlocks?
And how many other priests?
Can you shut the fuck up, please?
I do wonder, though, if maybe I should stomp on that behavior of mine and become more aggressive with loot. It’s not good for your tank healers to lag behind in gear, now is it? It is, by nature, a (somewhat) more solitary job than raid healing. It might shed light on why I flail so hard if I don’t have Kotakh to toss supporting hots, for example.
Or…maybe not. Maybe it’s just the nature of the beast-sometimes the tank will dip a wee bit lower than we like and heart attacks will be had regardless of healer gear.
Or maybe 3.3 will hit next week and I can just go loot hoover from the new 5 mans and it won’t matter anyway!
