Skinner's Paradise.. I love when I'm the only skinner in there.
Let's see, what have I been doing for the last few days..
I've been continuing to gear up, it's amazing how few people do Wintergrasp (the defender's exploit of killing cannons at the tower to rank up quickly makes it quick, especially when tbere's only 2-3 a side), and it pays more to win there then it does to lose in Tol Barad (I hate HATE HATE HATE HATE Tol Barad, especially as an attacker) So between that and doing a lot of PUG's I've kitted myself up pretty nice, three Justice Point gears.. then.
(insert emergency brake being pulled sound here)
I've hit a wall. I'm the last active member of my guild, and there's a lot of stuff in the bank, to explain. To get shoulders and/or helm, you need a drop that only comes from 10 man raids. The only PUG groups on Moonie that I see advertising for Raids require you to already have done it before (to show the acheivements to get an invite, etcetera). So I feel like I'm being locked out (and I've got pretty good gear (wow-heroes puts my gearscore at 4550)..
So to pass the time (and to rebuild my depleted account), I've been singling BC Heroics and WOTLK 5 Mans (as an arms warrior, it'd probably take more time to do heroic WOTLK then it's worth) and to get those achievement points. I even went and got my Jenkins title :)
But I gotta figure out what to do. If I take Lai out of the guild, I have other alts in it, but I can never get Lai back in (since I'm the only active member, I can't invite myself
).. and now that I've done one of the Troll heroics, I'm running out of new things to do and that worries me. I don't want to drift away again.. I wanna see the new and exciting stuff)
Oh, and talking about the PUG from hell, on our Trollheroic today,, we have two people who just spend the whole run sniping at each other (one is used to a system where everyone rolls need on Crystals and Orbs while the rest of us roll Needs only on Orbs since they're profession specific). So one person accuses the needer of ninjaing a Crystak, and they spend the next twenty minutes calling each other every name under the sun. There are multiple attempts to votekick each other out of the group (all of which fail), and as we continue to go on through the bosses, it's like every bad word ever is being exchanged. Finally, after beating Zanzil, I tell both of them to grow up, that we could have resolved this by doing /rolls against what he had rolled for need on the crystal 45 minutes ago, and if the two of them didn't stop it immediately, *I* was going to leave and leave them hanging one boss away.
I think even though I'm not yet qualified for the Real Life Achievement "The Mom Voice", I was able to fake it enough that they stopped filling the party window with insults, and we managed to finish Zul'Gurub without a wipe on Jindo :)
But even after we finished, I felt like I needed a multiple hour break just to get the irritation I had over the two boys.
I wish I had been the healer instead of DPS (my 75 Pally is a healer).. then I just smile and say "I can survive for a bit with out you, so remember to stay on the good side of the healer, they decide who lives and who dies... *evilgrins*"
They get the point. :)
And one more thing, quick. God bless Tanks. I couldn't do it. TOo much panic for me "Oh god oh god h god I'm losing aggro, no you get back here.. STOP CHASING MY HEALER.. no you can't wander off and attack that DPS... NO GET BACK HERE THE HEALER IS NOT YOUR CHEW TOY.. OK WHO HIT THE SHEEP.. AGGHHH! WHO PULLED THAT SECOND GROUP. THERE'S TOO MANY HEAL ME HEAL ME HEAL ME ..."
When my guild was active I made it clear over and over again "LAI NO TANK!"
