So many toons, so little time. My priest needs some badges still, because I…still have some trophys in my bag to make use of. My hunter needs badges because she only has two pieces of t9 and also has some other gear to replace. She’s also back to being my primary alt, since I fail at shadow priesting and use her to step in for 2 heal situations.
My paladin technically could use upgrades, but she’s gathering dust. We don’t need her right now. My warrior could use a LOT of badges and I do like warrior tanking, but if you’ve been reading along you’re also aware of the fits of screaming rage pugs cause me with her. O NOES BLUES WHY DIDN’T YOU DING WITH PURPLES YOU FAIL TANK.
A lot of that is related to speed. People want fast, so that they can run more heroics and get more badges. Blizzard is even catering to this, nerfing certain longer instances.
Oh, Blizzard. I don’t want you encouraging people to be speed happy douchebags. Speed happy douchebags (be they healers who bail, DPS that pulls first, or tanks that rush ahead and pull half a room at a time) are annoying. No, no, more than annoying. Rage inducing.
I mean I want to run more heroics, sure! I just want to run more heroics with people who aren’t dicks. I guess that the nerfs will make it easier on my poor warrior-assuming, of course, that I can ever bring myself to touch her again-in one respect…but…meh.
Of course I understand that Blizzard is trying to curb one kind of stupid (bailing on lengthy instances) with these changes. I also understand that they can’t do anything about the kind of stupid that is irritating me (o hai, jerkfaces)*. But you know what? I’m going to bitch, anyway, because it keeps me from throwing things around the room.
But if you’re going to nerf something, can it be those first whelp pulls in Oc? I hate those things, they’re annoying. :(
*Rating systems scare me, exactly because I CAN seem to be the worst tank in the world sometimes. D:
