Old Jokes Never Die

So once upon a time, according to guild legend, I crashed the Chicago data center and with it, my WoW server(s), during a raid.

This was OVER A YEAR AGO.

And yet, the joke will not die.

How I Drive My Raid Leader Crazy

Discussing how we’re down to 4 healers and another one “would be nice”, and me possibly leveling my priest:

me:  Priest, not paladin?  C’mon, heal a raid with nothing but paladins, GO
 Fuzzbutt:  Wha?
 me:  /points at her healers at 80
 Fuzzbutt:  What’s wrong with priest? I thought you HATED pallies now?
 me:  THEY DIDNT HAVE AOE HEALS THEN
 Fuzzbutt:  But holy power is still around.
 me:  But it was mostly tongue in cheek, I vendored all of Ambro’s healing gear.  Haha,.
With Lyr I can LFD ALL THE THINGS isntead of questing >.>
Which is how i prefer it
 Fuzzbutt:  Lol
Srsly though, it is ONLY if you want to.
I’m really not gonna make anyone do anything
 me:  I am not burned out on healing ala Myss.
Fuzzbutt:  Yes I know this
But I also know you like your DK (last I checked?)
 me:  I will start leveling her as best I can, but if we get a healer replacement first I won’t be butthurt either.
I do!
And I like my hutner now that I have kind of foguredo ut focus things
but!
I will play…whatever
 Fuzzbutt:  Do you actually WANT to heal?
Or are you just willing to, to reduce my headache?
 me:  I will happily heal if we need me to. 
I will jsut as happily keep melee DPSing, too.
 Fuzzbutt:  THAT doesn’t answer my question
 me:  I WANT to heal about as much as I WANT to DPS, thus making it equal
 Fuzzbutt:  Technically. I don’t NEED you to
I have 4 healers and should be able to rotate alright
 me:  WELL I WILL LEVER HER ANYWAY AND WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS
 Fuzzbutt:  Lever!
 me:  damn it
shut up and go to bed
 Fuzzbutt:  Lol
I’m just saying amber
I want you to play what you want to play. Not what I may need you to play.
Its not how we operate. I’m not going to start now.
And your little non-answers just make me feel like you’re doing it cause I want you to
 me:  Seriously, dude, I DON’T CARE
I WILL PLAY WHATEVER THE FUCK
just not ret pally oh god
or rogue
…or mage
unless someone powerlevels me through maging
becuase I have no idea
SCORCH ALL THE THINGS OH GOD I DIED
 Fuzzbutt:  YOU’RE NOT HELPING GODDAMMIT
 me:  BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I DON’T CARE
 Fuzzbutt:  /Flail
Its hard to believe that when you had no interest in it until I brought it up the other night
me:  I DONT HAVE INTEREST IN CAKE UNTIL SOMEONE MENTIONS IT EITHER

Raid Leader’s Woes: A Flowchart

Here I will present to you the original, as my raid leader and main tank presented it to me:

And here is my helpfully edited version:

BWD: Magmaw

Blackwing “Wait Didn’t I Kill Nef Already?” Descent: Magmaw

Note:
I have now done this fight!  We have even killed him!  You can check out my “lol instructional video” here.  Done with captions because I am a nub with a  broken mic.  ETA: Apparently that vid spazzes out at one point, showing a still until the kiting segment.  I have no idea why, as all I did to make our plain kill video was remove the captions and the kiting part and kill video works fine, but I’ll see about fixing it.  In the meantime, the link to the less fubar’d, but non-captioned, video is here.

Basic Concepts:

  • Don’t stand in bad (pst, fire is bad)
  • GROUP HUG
  • Multiple phases
  • AAADDS!  AAADDS!

Tank
Guess what!  The boss doesn’t move.  Stand there and mock your kiter during the first part.   Of course, during the transition, the boss is eating you, so…yeah.  After a few stacks of mangle you might want to pop a cool down.  And not mock the kiter so much.

At the end of phase 2, threat is wiped, so you want to reestablish that quickly before your melee does something stupid like tank it for you.

Healer
Hug your ranged DPS and fill green bars.  Move with the group away from pillar of fire.  Weep at the AoE damage.   When the tank is being OMNOMNOM’d during the transition, toss him some extra heals.

DPS
One of you is going to be the kite bitch.  Hunters are naturally pro at this, but DKs with Chillblains are a popular choice right now as well.  Any class that can slow/knock back/teleport/get really fucking creative can pull this off as well.  See: kite bitch section below.

The rest of you (sans melee) will be basically shuffling from one designated spot to another as the boss tosses down a pillar of burning badness every 30 seconds.  If you’re slow you’ll get knocked in the air by the pilalr so don’t be fucking slow.

Killing the adds seems to be the preferred method, so ranged DPS should burn those down.  Just make sure all DPS (and cooldowns are blown) are on the boss when he’s impaled, which is phase 2.

There is a boss ability named ignition.  It covers half the room and looks like steam jets, so don’t stand in it.  Duh.

Two DPS will have to chain the poss during the transition phase.  Jump on his head and use Constricting Chains.  Don’t have your best add burners do this as they’ll still need to be killing those damn worms.  If you’re breaking the chains you’re fucking it up so…uh…don’t do…whatever you’re doing.

At the end of phase two the boss drops threat.  Don’t be stupid.

Kite Bitch
Worms spawn from the pillar of flame.  Grab them and run around like a headless chicken.   MANY WORMS, HANDLE THEM.  No I don’t know why this really got its own section either.  I felt like it, okay?

November looms…

…and with it, NaNoWriMo, and a month long silence on this blog.

At least, from me.  Unless I fail, of course, then it’s a whole ‘nother ballgame…but anyway!

Guest posts!  I want them!  Topic is largely irrelevent as I’ve covered everything from priests to pallys to hunters to DKS to raids to RP here by now.  Flowcharts are a bonus. 

My e-mail is over there in the side bar…send away!

I don’t know what’s wrong with us all either.

I have Actual Factual Content for you, but I keep forgetting to grab a link to my spec, and armory is dumb right now.  So!  Instead you get screenshots.

For the curious, Jamethera is me, Vaerron is @Achloyrn aka Fuzzbutt, and Orithea is…Orithea.

From attempts on Heroic Saurfang:


I’m so happy to use the Things Ori Says tag again you have no idea guys.

I have no idea what even prompted that.  I do remember what prompted the one below, however.  I HAZ A NEW PHONE and it was exciting and new and…they were so being pervy about it.


Seriously, guys.  NEVER IN MY RANDOMS.  :(



…yeah I have no idea what started that either.

SPEAKING OF FINDING ME IN RANDOMS, if you by any chance are leveling a mind 60s toon in the Ruin battle group, look for Vainglory the frost DK.  \o/

Identity Crisis

me:  I am still not sure what to do with ILB post-Cata.  I mean technically, I’m not priesting right NOW…
hunters aren’t very bubbly
achloryn:  who the hell cares? it’s your blog. Call it whatever the hell you want, even if it doesn’t fit into the title of the blog
me:  BUT THEN IT DOESN’T MATCH CHRIS
 achloryn:  SO THE SHIT WHAT?
 me:  SO IT BUGS ME OMG
 achloryn:  SO OMG YOU’RE BUGGED
/flail
/snark

My friends are so fucking helpful.  :P 

ILikeBubbles actually started while I was in the midst of a character transition.  That was from holy paladin to disc priest, however–two classes instrinsicly linked to bubbles.  At the moment, however, my main is a hunter, and with Cata stretching before me, I have no idea what I’m going to be playing. 

Many people in SiB seems to be in the same boat.  “Well, what are you doing in Cata?”

“I don’t know.  What are you doing?”

“It depends on what everyone else is doing.”

“What does the guild need?”

“I don’t know.”

One or two people have stauncly declared ourselves while the rset of us stand around akwardly.

Waiting.

“We should recruit while people are cutting loose of dying guilds, and then when people are flooding back.”

“Yeah.  But what do we need?”

“…not tanks?”

“…”
