Sillyness: Recap

While I do have days of “WHY THE FUCK DO I DO THIS AGAIN?!” when it comes to GMing…and while I do, in part, want to go frolic as a hunter…in the end I am still Amber the Disc Priest & GM.

Mostly because it allows me to do stuff like this:

It was better received in the spirit of the day than I could have hoped.

If my muffin tabard looks slightly different from their muffin tabards, it would be because I gquit…

I tried to do it in as lulzy a way as possible, so as to not cause widespread panic right before raid time. 

Despite my leaving for MORE muffiny pastures, plenty of muffins were left in BoO in my wake:

That was actually Ky’s doing-I just changed the GM rank from “Not Mom” to “Old Man”.   Ky was a fine co-conspirator in this, taking the reins during my absence and instituting new rules!  DKP would be replaced by BP-bingo points!

Aside from the muffins being a guild in-joke, so too is Ky being an “old man”.  He’s not really “old”, but us 20 somethings like to harass our elders.  Even those of us who are now closer to 30 than 20, ha.  Since he was “old” though, he must clearly indulged in “old man” pursuits…and this meant bingo!

He posted on the forums about new BP rules and everything.  Some of us continued to embrace the bingo fun as the night wore on.

Of course, some people were more amused by the stunt than others. 

Oh Bej.  Where is your sense of humor?! 

Ky also changed the guild ranks again later in the night:

After the raid I re-joined BoO, took it back over, and as of this morning the tabard is back to normal.   Some of us had fun, anyway.  ;) 

Many thanks to Ori and Ky for helping!

NaNo Cop Out Post Take #24

All I’m doing…is talking about plans to meet up with some of my guild mates IRL…and then all of a sudden…

Kyrilean:  i think you’re trying to enslave us all!
 me:  how so?!
 Kyrilean:  one gm to rule them all
one gm to find them
one gm to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
 me:  …wtf is wrong with you
Kyrilean:  there seriously is not enough time
 Kyrilean:  and this is gonna end up in a post, isn’t it?…
 me:  …probably

And then:

Arrens:  /nod
Sounds about right.
Amber = Succubus.

Reasons I Raid

GMail chats at work:

Kyrilean Silverblade: guild nate?
me: what?
Kyrilean Silverblade: ^
Amber: it’s his guild nate, too
me: oh, stfu
Kyrilean Silverblade: <3 u 2 sweetheart
me: you are such a twit
I should buy your wife a present for putting up with you
Kyrilean Silverblade: lmao
me: and breeding with you, even
Kyr spawn is scary
Kyrilean Silverblade: omg lol

This is what happens when you baby spice someone on a Sandbox Tiger, they dismount, and a normal sized person gets on…

Fucking DJ.  Don’t listen to him, he’s so full of shit I made a new rank called Twilight Fan to demote him to.  And yes, it was muted.

Random Screenshot Monday

WoWScrnShot_102509_125501Classy, Random Other Hunter.  Really classy.  Here’s what I say to you:

WoWScrnShot_110509_195435Die in a fucking fire, mmmkay?

WoWScrnShot_110709_162350You’re just jealous of the dinosaur, admit it.  Everyone is jealous of Omnomnom.  Except maybe the tanks, because they’re all, WTF that thing is huge are you really going to use that and I’m all, yes, yes I am.


By the way, those float after you break the floor.  Unfortunately, jumping off of them apparently makes water hard as glass, killing you.  Go figure…


See: first note.

WoWScrnShot_110509_211659…we’re just weird in the healing channel, okay?

Emoquitting and You

1) Don’t do it.  There’s better ways to go out. 
2) Definitely don’t do it repetedly.
3) Especially not in the same guild.
4) The GM may keep inviting you back, but everyone else might well start to think you’re a bundle of loldrama.


And in more random WTFery, I honestly have these conversations with some of you folks:

Kyrilean:  yellow
 me:  what?
 me:  blue?  green?  purple?
 Kyrilean:  the phone goes “green”, i “pink” it up, and say “yellow”
 me:  …  WTF
Kyrilean:  a 2nd grade elementary teacher asks her class to use three words in a sentence: green, pink, and yellow
teacher says, “Susie, please use those three words in a sentence.”
Susie says, “My dress is green. My crayon is pink. The sun is yellow.”
“Very good,” says the teacher
me:  but that’s three sentences
 Kyrilean:  “Jose,” says the teacher, “please use those three words in a sentence.”
Jose thinks a moment.
And then says, “The phone goes green, I pink it up, and say yellow.”
you must say that last part with an accent btw
think Speedy Gonzalez :)
me:  you are so not PC
 Kyrilean:  I’m a mac
 me:  I’m blogging this
 Kyrilean:  shit

I will not share the god awful jokes I heard after that.   You’re welcome.

Dear Readers…

Don’t worry, your Friday Flowchart is coming.  But today, I have a request.

BoO is so close to running 25s.  We can assemble a 25 if everyone is onand we exploit a couple of alts/dual specs.  We did this with Ony some time last week.  But, naturally we need a few more folks.  My readers, of course, are awesome-I’m actually amazed at how many of you have wandered over to join us.  I’ve gotten far more response here than I have through the recruitment forums, or any of half a dozen recruiting websites. 

So I come to you, again.

If some of you have something other than a healer please by the love of all that is holy and would be interested in wandering over…please do so!  For all the complaining that I do here about some of our adorably special people, the awesome people far outweigh them.  I just can’t think of a funny rant about a guildie handing me six fucking epic gems when all I really needed for my scrub ass was the blue ones goddamnitKyr.  I couldn’t even pay him for them right then because that toon was nearly broke.  And he didn’t seme to care (OhgodtheguiltIthinkIhavetogohomeandsendhimsomegoldfromLyr). 
Nor can I rant about Kyr bringing his scrub DK into H ToC and us looking at his gear and going…oh god.  Oh GOD.  That is TERRIBLE what the FUCK here let me go make you shit.  Insults alongside love, gotta dig it.

…where was I going with this?  Oh yeah.

I needs me some deeps.  Deeps that doesn’t stand in fires…much.  I don’t even care what kind of deeps.  We don’t have any DPS shammy mains, of either flavor.   Actually we have no shamans raiding at all, which makes me QQ.  I think our shadow priest went hunter, though god, more priests.  Um.  I actually wouldn’t mind another hunter,  so you can take loot from Huntres.  How about a rogue?  I think all of our rogues left, or got eaten by RL, or switched mains.   We don’t have any reliable ret pallys, either.  BRING ME DEEPS. 

We could also use a tank.  Right now we mave m’dear Cranky Tank, Atropus, and…our rogue that went tank?  So that’s two warriors and a DK who actually would rather go back DPS.  There’s also a REALLY AWESOME BEAR but his availability doesn’t always match our schedule.  Regardless, it’d be nice to let Atropus go back to smacking things in the f…er…ass.   So.  Tank!  Good!  Preferably not warrior flavored, though. 

We currently raid M/W, 7-10 PM CST.  Ulduar and ToC are our regular gigs, though we have several semi-regular off-night runs (Naxx25 on Thursdays and another Ulduar10 on Saturdays).

Random Musings on Paladin Tanking

Our dear Kyr has decided to dabble in paladin tanking.  As it so happens many of the officers are or have been paladin tanks, so it’s not as if he doesn’t have a plethora of opinions to draw from.  I actually transferred to Azgalor as a paladin tank, and I am…reasonably comfortable on that role.  I tend to have several heart attacks the first time I fight anything new and then, blessedly, mellow out after that.

You should have seen me doing Ignis trash-I was cowering in terror, because I’ve seen the adds cause wipes repeatedly when allowed to give healers hugs.  I was quite proud of myself afterwards, too-no one died!  Yay!

I’ve not found-as a Naxx25 and early Ulduar10 tank-that the recent nerfs have not really affected me much.  I’ve even stopped thinking about how, exactly, I do it-I did my research on attack priorities, arranged my bar, and just smack the buttons when they’re shiny (I will so totes be an awesome ret pally).  I keep an eye on defense cap, I try to get some hit, and I like dodge and parry!  Block is okay, I guess.  I think wairrors like block more.  Stam + stuff gems are good!  Yay, stam!

…and that is how I prot pally.

…I should probably leave teaching Ky up to Macharious, huh?

I might toss out a paladin tanking 101 guide though, because simplifying things for those of us who recoil in terror from the EJ forums is only doing some people a favor.  :P 

Non-bleeding edge tanks, ho!
