Random Picture Day

I was going through my screenshot folder and found a ton of pictures that I’ve taken that will most likely never see the light of day, even with screenshot Friday.  So today is your lucky day, you get to see them!


I KEEL you!

I KEEL you with this too!


Andrew (Corvine) enjoys transforming himself into a pygmy gnome while on his rogue.  The other night we were doing Heroic UP when he transformed himself, then Heleva threw the mohawk grenade on us all, and to make things even better, she threw a baby spice on him.  I must have like 20 pictures of him like this.  We were all dying in vent when this happened.  He fought through the instance like this.  It was awesome.


"So whatcha in for?"


One of the Silver Covenant quests has you “rescue” Kul who manages to get himself and his friends captured every, single, day.  They must be friends with Corky over in Nagrand.  In this picture Andrew decided to chill out with Kul.  Sadly for Kul, Corvine’s lockpicking doesn’t work on these cages.


Look Ma!


Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee *hack* Woah, head rush


I still don’t know how he does it, but Andrew flies around upside down on his mount.  Every day while we wait for Chillmaw he flies around us in circles upside down.  I finally took pictures, but you have to see him do it live.  BTW I don’t believe he has kicked his Rockstar habit 😉


You want some of this?


While waiting for a stupid book to spawn (it never did) someone hit me with the mohawk.  So naturally I started posing.


I pity the fool . . . I mean, don't you as well? Oh, I guess I am alone then.


Well don’t you?


When I dance they call me Macarena and the boys they say que soy buena


This was the picture I wanted to get at first.  I thought it was nifty that I was floating in air.


This is what I got at first:


Say "Chee . . . Damn it!"


Stupid death knight.


"Can you feel the love tonight."


Man Millea needs to lay off that booze.  Squirrels are cute, but that’s just wrong.






"Do you like my boots? I think the green really brings out the blue in my eyes."


Yeah Dily is a giant among men.  And those green boots. >.<  Let me just say that despite the fact that he has green pants, those boots don’t match!  Who let him leave the house like that?!!

Night Owls FTW

A few months ago a guildie asked for early runs, which I put up on the calendar, and which no one signed up for.  Since then I have come to notice that we have a lot of night owls in our guild, at least compared to server time.


There are several of us who are on the west coast and other than me, usually show up online around 7 pm PST, which is 10 pm server time.  There are a few others who show up an hour to 2 hours later.  The other night we had 13 people online at 12 am server.  I get online around 5 pm PST, or 8 pm server.  I am lucky if there are 4-5 people online.


As I have mentioned before, our big issue is getting people signed up for raids.  We have the skill, we have the people, they just need to sign up.


I was originally trying to cater to both groups by putting up runs for like 5:30 (8:30) – 6 (9) pm during the week.  I would get 1 or 2 people to sign up max.  So I did a little experiment.  I changed our OS +1 run scheduled for 6 pm on Thursday night to a Naxx 10 run for 9:15 pm (12:15 am).  I got 6 sign ups on the first day.  I keep getting people thanking me for putting a run up on that day at that time.  Vel even told me it was an ideal time for him.  The west coasters like it because they don’t have to rush home to get online, and the night owls on the east coast are thrilled there are people willing to be online.


Even though I am disgusted with Naxx atm, I will still be running on Thursday (and most likely leading the raid).  Only I will be able to dps :D, at least I think I will.  We are supposed to have 2 priests healing (1 disc, 1 holy) so I might get away with coming on Millea.  If not, then I will be there on Tatia, raid healing my little tree heart out.


I’ve already warned them it will not be a full clear.  Fuck that noise.  I haven’t gotten over that quite yet.

Who shot who with a what now?

Oh man, busy busy weekend.  Since Nite has come back online we have been trying to do more heroics because we have a tank!  Woot woot!!  And of course there was much rejoicing.


Thursday night started it off.  I had put on the calendar that we were going to do WG then Vault.  I got 2 sign ups other than me.  When I logged in a new guildie was asking about the run and wanted to come, so she became introduced to our calendar.  Turns out she is a very well geared holy priest.  Hell I didn’t even know we had her available.  Go us!  The several of us that were online decided to do the daily (Nexus) twice since we all had 2 80s.  She came along and healed for us.  I got to go as druid dps, go me! >.< Vel ended up tanking on his druid, Andrew came on his rogue and we pugged a newbie DK.  Cake, no biggie.  For the 2nd run we had a dilemma.  There were no tanks.  I was going on my warlock, Andrew was on his warlock, Vel was on his shammy and Heleva was all set to heal on her priest.  Our new guildie said she had a level 80 DK who could attempt to tank.  She warned us that she didn’t have any tanking gear outside of a pair of boots, but if we were willing she was willing to give it a shot.

It was so much fun!

Vel switched back from elemental to resto and we decided to 2 heal it.  I brought out my VW to help with the tanking duties.  Andrew managed to die on his warlock on some trash I believe.  Other than that, we lived.  I used the VW to off tank some adds and we slowed on our dpsing.  Vel and Heleva just overhealed the hell out of us.  All of us kept saying how much fun we were having and how much of a challenge (in a good was) this run was.  As I sit here typing I have a smile on my face remembering the fun.


Friday Nite was around and we knocked out HoL and ToC.  Have I mentioned how I hate healing ToC?  Cause I really fucking hate healing ToC.  I hate it on heroic and I hate it on regular.  It sucks soooooo bad.


Saturday was the Ulduar continuation raid.  We had 80% of the people from the last run.  We walked in, I gave strats for IC and we took them down in one shot :D.  FINALLY!  I’d like to think that the nature resist totem helped big time.  My suggestion btw.  Two shammies and I had to suggest it >.<

We then made our way to Freya and her oodles of trash.  After some miscommunication from the bear OT turned MT when the MT switched to his shammy and we brought in Dily’s lesser geared pally tank, and a wipe on the first trash pull, we managed to clear out the place.  It was cool being able to use my CC ability.  I learned something new too.  Apparently I can rebanish something and it removes the banish on the mob.  I never use the spell.  I had to go find it for the trash fights.  Fun times.  I was so proud of myself.  I had the mob I was CCing on my focus bar, gave the proper calls out.  Yeah I did my job right! 😀  I will say though, we had 2 druids in the party, and neither of them could put that damn dragon to sleep.  WTH?

Everyone I have talked to said they hate Freya’s fight.  I fricken loved it.  There was so much you have to remember, and the waves being random was awesome.  It was a very creative fight and I just had a blast.  Yes we wiped over and over and over again, to where we had 10 mins left on her trash respawn when we finally got her down.  But we managed to take her down.  Then got the hell out of dodge before her trash respawned.

Despite our tanks not having any frost resist gear, we went ahead and decided to attempt Hodir.  Yeah I can’t understand it either.  Those snakes in the ice tunnel suck, but they sure do make for pretty dps numbers. 😀  Seed of Corruption FTMFW! 😀  Hodir was another interesting fight.  I was so confused in it though.  I think I would prefer to heal it in the future.  Seemed like it might be easier.  I don’t think  we even got him to 50%.  Oh well, we will get him eventually.  Our pally tank was already talking about getting some frost resist gear made.

After we decided to call it (it was like 1:30 in the morning for the east coasters) the night owls and west coasters decided to knock out the tourney dailies and the heroic daily.  Fun times were had by all.


Sunday, the day that I am still pissed about.

So I wake up on Sunday planning to play for like an hour or so, then start my laundry and house cleaning.  I’m logged in for like 20 mins and I beg Andrew to run me through Ramps on my mage for a quest she needs.  He had just bought Dragon Age and was about to log to go play it.  As we are making our way there (I ALWAYS get lost trying to find the entrance to ramps) a call goes out in the guild for an imprompto Naxx run.  Because heaven forbid we do Onyxia like I had on the calendar.  Can you see my eyes rolling through the screen?  Because they are really making a circut.  I said no, I was doing ramps.  Andrew said no at first, but then his need to play his lesser geared warlock won out.  He said he would go if they still needed him when we were done.

Fast forward like 15 mins.  They still haven’t started.  There were 2 other guildies online besides me who weren’t in the raid.  I asked if they were good to go and the RL said “we need another healer, we can’t go until we get one.”  So, thinking it would be like 2 wings then I could bail, I said “Ok I’ll heal you.”  Famous last words.  This was around 1:30 pm.  What I thought would be a 2 maybe 3 wing clear turned out to be a FULL FUCKING CLEAR.  This was not a group of over geared players running it for shits, giggles and badges.  Around 1/3 of the raid was still getting gear from bosses.  Several people got a ton of upgrades.  That didn’t phase the RL, he just kept going.  People died, and while I was trying to rez, he was pulling the next group.  Now this is our normal pally tank.  He knows this isn’t a geared group.  So I don’t know where he was coming from, but damn dude.  I didn’t ask to be an assistant to the raid, I didn’t even ask to be master looter.  He asked me if I wanted to ML since I normally am for the raids.  I said sure.  We started getting to bosses and he was all for jumping in with no explainations, despite several people asking for one.  Then he started giving the strats for 25 man.  Yeah not a good idea for 10 man.  So me and a couple others jumped in and corrected him.  For the rest of the run I would preface each boss fight with “Do you want to explain the fight or would you like me to?”  It was about 50/50 from him on his answers.  I wasn’t trying to take over his raid, and I tried to stay quiet, but damn I am just not a quiet person.  If you are doing it wrong I will tell you.

Since we started Ulduar I have been for all intents and purposes, raid leading and I love it.  There is a part of me that just likes to be in charge.  I am a control freak, I will be the first to tell you that.  When I am not the leader I have to be careful that I am not unconciously trying to take over the raid.  I am really bad about that.  I think that is what ended up happening during the Naxx run.  I just somehow took over.  I don’t know if it was because he really didn’t want to be leading the raid or if it was something else.  I just know he was decidedly pissy with me by the middle of the run.

Well whatever, I was pissy because no one told me this was a full Naxx clear or that I would be spending 7 FUCKING HOURS in this instance.  The longest breaks we took were like 5-10 mins for a bio.  Which I was doing, so I didn’t have time to cook food, let alone get any of my chores done.  Needless to say, when we finally got to Sapp I was livid.  Then we wiped on KT because people wouldn’t stay out of the 10 yard range.  I was not a happy camper when we finally killed him.


I then logged for like an hour.  Took a hot bath, got something to eat, then logged back in to do tourney dailies.


I am not looking forward to Naxx again on Thursday. >.<


Screenshot Friday

I was in Halls of Lightning last night when I noticed that there was a globe of Azeroth.  Now I know the whole place has planets and stars etc, but I had never realized what one of them was.  So I decided that it would be the picture for today.






The Malstrom can be seen from space, damn that thing must be huge.

What was I doing again?

So my plans for doing heroics to get back into the swing of healing didn’t happen.  Instead I leveled my mage.  She hit 60 last night 😀


Millea didn’t hit 70 unti lafter Wrath came out, so she didn’t get to do all of the BC heroics, actually she didn’t do anything outside of ramps, BF and BM, and that is because a bored 70 ran me through BF and I ran someone through ramps after I hit 80.  BM was for all of the delicious netherweave spider silk.  I also wanted the enchant, but I never manged to get my rep high enough.  We used to do lots of runs in BM, but then they needed a healer so Tatia went and Millea got pushed out of going.  Millea never did get that enchant.

As one of the few high level enchanters (who is online) the vast majority of guildies ask me for enchants.  One of the enchants that I kept being asked for was the +35 agility for a 2 hand weapon.  You can only get the enchant in the arcatraz, which I had never done.  So last night Nite gets on and asks me for the enchant.  Since I don’t have it we all decide to go to the instance.  Off we ran, with 2 high 70s alts of other guildies.  We got lucky and the enchant dropped in regular so we didn’t have to keep running it in order to get everyone heroic keys.  When it drops I asked Vel if we needed to re-run it so he could get it.  He tells us that he has it.  >.<  He didn’t realize that we had ran the instance so that I could get the enchant to do it for Nite. *sigh*  But hey I have the enchant now 😀


A few months back we recruited a hunter from a PuG we had done.  The hunter was cool with the little bit of raiding we did.  He just wanted to find a guild that raided on the weekends because that was his work schedule.  Since he joined us about 3-5 of his friends have also joined us.  They are all in the air force and work together.  They are all pretty cool guys that fit in well with us.  They haven’t been able to raid with us lately and I was chatting with them last night trying to work out something so that they could be more included with us.  We ended up talking about late night Naxx runs (since most of their toons aren’t geared enough for Ulduar yet).  From what we were able to figure out we would have almost a full raid from just those guys and the few of us on the west coast.  He is going to talk with them today and let me know what sounds like a plan.


This has me excited.  I don’t care if I am just doing Naxx, OS, Vault or even Ulduar.  I just like raiding.  It is a lot of fun to me and I want to do it more.  I don’t need to be doing progression raids, although I wont say no to them.  I just like to raid.  I am hoping that this will bring about more raiding for EoF.  😀

L2P Nub

So lately I have been either leveling an alt or dpsing on Millea and just haven’t healed all that often.  Plus I recently switched from Healbot to Vuhdo and I am still learning the ropes.


So last night while we were  finishing our tourney dailies a guildie pops in and asks if we want to do the heroic daily (which also happened to be the regular daily).  The 3 of us (Vel, Andrew and myself) said sure we’d go as soon as we were done.  So we finished up the dailies and made our way back to Dal.  Then I proceeded to spam general, trade and LFG for a tank for 30 mins.  I SHIT YOU NOT.  Finally the rogue who we pugged for Ulduar (who has a pally tank) came online and I immediately started bugging him.  Luckily not many people usually ask him to tank (he is a tad bit undergeared) so he is usually up for it.  Just as we are walking into CoS who logs in?  Nite.  Our guild’s long lost bear tank >.>


Go fricken figure


So anyway we are in CoS, running around killing the waves when the guildie who wanted to do the heroics D/Cs.  Since we were pushing for the timer, we just kept going.  We actually ended up making the timer with like 2 mins to spare, with only 4 people. *flex*  Ahh yeah.  We did have 2 deaths though, >.> and they were TOTALLY my fault.


Now I mentioned above that I haven’t been healing much lately, and OMG did it show.  I went back into panic mode from when I first started healing.  No longer was I the bored healer standing in the back debating if I wanted to switch out of tree form to dps, nope I was freaking out because I couldn’t heal people fast enough.  The fact that we completed the instance meant nothing, I was pissed at myself because I let 2 people die.  I RARELY have deaths anymore, unless it is something completely out of my control, not because my reaction time was slow.


So afterwards we decided to bring in Nite to tank (the poor guy has been on several months break, we needed to toss him in the deep end fast) and our friend switched to his dps spec.  We hit up HoL because Andrew loves the voice on the first boss.  It makes him happy . . . in the pants.


Again, I was having a horrible time trying to keep people alive.  It was a little bit easier than CoS, but I actually ended up dying.  Those damn poison tipped spears can kill you easily if they aren’t taken off >.<  The really funny thing was healing through Loken was the easiest part of that run.  The key is to just keep everyone HoTed up and spam Wild Growth.  Cake.


So Andrew was on his lock, who is slightly undergeared (in comparison to the rest of the group, and his rogue) and wanted to do Heroic ToC.  I HATE healing this instance.  HATE IT!  I hate it almost as much as trying to heal Oculus.  Which I of course mentioned several times in vent.  I am vocal, what can I say.  So off we went.  Nite had only done ToC once before, and didn’t remember what went on.  So I was explaining the fights before they happened.  We did the jousting ok, I got knocked off my horse twice.  Fuckers.  I think one person died, maybe, I am not sure.  We got the rogue, mage and hunter.  NOT a fun combo, but much easier than the damn shaman and warrior.  I warned the guys to get out of the poison, which I know they tried to, but damn me if I couldn’t remember which damn mouse button combo that was assigned to Abolish Poison.  I mean I know it, it didn’t change from Healbot to Vuhdo, but hell if I managed to use it.


We got those guys down, I can’t remember if anyone died.  Next up, Paltress.  Yes I can hear your groans through the computer.  No we didn’t have a priest or a shammy.  WHICH SUCKED BTW.  So yeah we died, repeatedly, and kept running back in, only to die again.  I just couldn’t keep anyone alive.  We finally all waited to come in at the same time, and the tank was able to pull her away from me enough to where I wasn’t getting the nightmare effect all that much.  This meant I was able to heal people through the uber damage being done to them.


Next up the Black Knight.  I think this is my least liked fight.  The ghouls always make a beeline for me.  Never fails.  Even when I don’t heal, just stand there wishing I could heal because I know if I do I will get aggro, they come for me.  In the first attempt (yes we wiped, shut up) I kept trying to run around and bring the ghoul back to Nite.  No dice there.  I ended up spending more time running and trying to avoid descration then I was spamming Nourish, which I HAVE to do in this fight.  My HoTs are just not enough to keep people alive.  Maybe other druids it is different, not so much me.  We managed to make it to the 2nd phase where I just couldn’t do it.  The pally was taking too much damage, vel was taking too much damage.  Any time that I took my focus off the tank, he would nosedive into almost dead.  Then the lock would life tap and I would freak out.  And to top it off, I was taking a TON of damage myself.  One thing that I am not used to with Vuhdo is the bars change color depending on the amount of health the person has.  It goes from bright green, to sickly green, to babyshit yellow, to orange, red, then to brown and BOOM you are dead.  So any time my bars aren’t green, I freak.  My bars were in the orange-red zone far too much for my liking.


After we wiped (which I was the last one standing, yet again) we went back in.  As Nite was taking a shitton of damage, I realized while I was spamming Nourish (which wasn’t keeping him healed NEARLY enough), that I wasn’t using my cooldowns.  I seriously was so disgusted with myself.  I quickly hit my nature’s swiftness and healing touch, BOOM, full life.  HoTed him up again, major damage, swiftmend, BOOM, full life.  I also just stood there.  I didn’t move unless the descration hit me.  Guess what, no one died, and we managed to finish the damn instance.  Nite got some nice bracers and Andrew got a really nice chest piece.


I however, felt like a complete idiot.  Which of course I knew I would have to post this on my blog because listening to people laugh at me is the only way to go about things.  Amirite? >.>


Yeah I definitely need practice again.  I think I am going to have to start doing heroics again on Tatia.  Who knows, maybe I will begin pugging, just for the sheer blog material I will get.


Oh well

DPS Survey

So I did the healing non-meme thingy, now there is a DPS one out from (http://dkdeathgoddess.blogspot.com/) so here I go with it!

What is the name, class, and spec of your primary dps?Millea, Affliction Warlock


What is your primary dpsing environment? (i.e. raids, pvp, 5 mans)

Mostly 5 mans, although we have had enough healers lately that I have been able to go on the 10 mans.

What is your favorite dps spell/ability for your class and why?

I love Haunt.  I love how it sucks your life away, then gives me a nice big heal at the end.  The added buffs to my other dots is really nice too 😀

What dps spell do you use least for your class and why?

I’m going to keep in the affliction tree because there are a bunch of spells that I don’t use that the other trees do.  I am going to say Seed of Corruption.  I mostly don’t use it because I forget I have it.  I am so used to just spamming Rain of Fire that popping out a few Seed of Corruptions doesn’t come to me.  Although I am getting better at it.  We did a heroic Oculus run the other night (right after Ulduar mind you) and I used it on all those irritating whelps in the first part of the dungeon.  Seeing all those numbers flying up was awesome.

What do you feel is the biggest strength of your dps class and why?

Our ability to be self sufficient, especially affliction locks.  I can life tap to regain mana, and then Haunt and the Siphon Life effect heal me, on top of my Fel Armor.  I routinely tell the healers that they usually do not need to heal me unless I have major aggro and am taking more damage than normal.  I don’t want the healers to feel like I am using their mana bar to refill mine.

What do you feel is the biggest weakness of your dps class and why?

 Affliction warlocks really lack the burst damage.  I will get put on things that have to die quickly, and I just cannot get them down fast enough.  I am built for taking you down one DoT tick at a time.  The longer I have, the more damage you have done to you.  Having me kill the bomb bots on XT just doesn’t work as well as one would think.  I am also not so great with the webs in Naxx.

In a 25 man raiding environment, what do you feel, in general, is the best dps assignment for you?

The boss.  As I mentioned above, I don’t have burst damage ability.  If I can sit there and drain away on the boss, I will rock your socks off.  Don’t put me on adds, and I don’t have much raid utility (outside of imp sb).  I am made to kill bosses, and I do it quite well I might add.

What dps class do you enjoy dpsing with most and why?

I love me some elemental shammies.  Their delicious totems help with my dps big time.  I don’t like how they always pass me on the meters, but there are a few times I can beat them 😀

What tanking class do you enjoy dpsing with least and why?

Other warlocks and mages.  It is purely a competitive thing on my part.  I only like other warlocks if I can beat them.  I dislike how my damage sucks on the overall meter when compared to mages, but I LOVE how I usually beat them on the boss fights.  It does make them cocky though.

What is your worst habit as a dps?

Pulling aggro.  The rule is the lock has to die.  I somehow manage to pull aggro off the best tank.  I always wait before I let loose.  Hell most of my spells take a moment to even build up aggro, but I still manage to pull it off.  WTB better soul shatter.

What is your biggest pet peeve in a group environment while dpsing?

People asking me for a table, or telling me that my overall dps sucks.  People expecting me to have better burst damage.  I AM NOT A MAGE!!! FFS.

Do you feel that your class/spec is well balanced with other dps?

I do.  We might not bring a lot of utility to the raid, but what we do bring is lots and lots of damage.  I usually am close to the top with overall damage on boss fights, where it counts. 

What tools do you use to evaluate your own performance as a damage dealer?

I check recount.  I look to see how badly I am clipping DoTs, and my DoT uptime.  I look to see if I beat the mage and rogue.  (Nerf rogues please! :p)

What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about your class?

That I am a mage.  I AM NOT A MAGE!!!  Destro locks come close, the wannabe mages, but I am not destro.

What do you feel is the most difficult thing for new dpsers of your class to learn?

How to keep your DoTs in order.  How not to clip them, and how to keep them up.  Affliction is a lot easier than it used to be, but it still takes practice.

What dps class do you feel you understand least?

Rogues.  I dislike playing them.  Despite Andrew telling me how you just “Press 1, then press 1, then press 1, then press 1, then press 3, then press 1, then press 1, then press 4, then press 1 etc” I can’t get into their playstyle. 

What add-ons or macros do you use, if any, to aid you in dps?

Umm other than recount, nothing.  I know I am supposed to be using Omen, but I could never understand it, so I haven’t downloaded it.  The built in threat meter in the game works well for me.  I am sure Mis will be unhappy about this, but since he pulls shit on me while I am healing him, it is only fair game ^_^

Strength over other stats or balanced stat allocation, and why?

I love me some spellpower and haste.  They are oh so yummy.  The more spellpower the better.  Spellpower gives me the oomph I need and haste speeds up my casts.  The more haste I have, the more Shadowbolts I can get off before I have to refresh Haunt.

So I need to tag someone, ummm how about http://arrens.net/ and http://clearcasting.wordpress.com/

Go go!!

Take that!

Crazy Cat lady is down!




Yeah we died a lot >.>

Mostly on her trash, yeah they sucked.


But do you notice the human female in front of the boobs?  Yeah baby!  That is my pretty little lock.  She got to raid as dps! 😀  She cleaned house as the only cloth wearer in the group.


So I went back and started leveling my mage again.  I got her halfway to 57 then left felwood and jetted over to the plaguelands.  Ran around for a while in WPL killing things over and over again because I always get lost and turned around.  Although I will say it was a lot easier to kill stuff there on my fire mage than on my balance druid.  Not sure why, but WPL was less of a PITA than it had been.  By the time I finished with the first 3 or 4 quests there she was a little over 57.  I decided to call it for the night (it was like 11:15 at this point and I get up early for work) so I hearthed back to EPL.  I picked up the quests there since I was now honored with Argent Dawn.  I saw that I had all of the “collect 30 of these” quests for tokens, and I just so happened to have a bunch of that stuff in my bank.  So a quick switch out to my bank toon and back to the mage.  I turned in like 4-5 turn ins and when I looked at her xp bar she was only 6000 away from 58.  So I quickly ran outside and killed a few slimes.  As she dinged 58 she got a hot streak.  I thought it was apropos. 😀


So onward to outlands!  I finally was able to train her alchemy and first aid above 300.  Yes I know I could have gotten a portal to Shat, but damn it I wanted to do it when I got to outlands.  So by the time I finished getting all my training done, and quests picked up, it was almost midnight.  >.> Yeah Monday is going to suck ass.


I think I am going to let her rest up and get some blue xp again since she is just about tapped out.  I might have my sweetie run me through Strathholme to get some gear.  I’m still wearing level 30 stuff.  I know he wants the Baron mount so I don’t think he will be overly upset over running me through.


Anyway, congrats again to Echo of Fate for downing Crazy Cat Lady.  Next weekend we are totally taking out IC and moving on to tackle the keepers!  😀

I will give you 2 guesses where this picture was taken, and you shouldn’t need a 2nd guess.  Enjoy!



"I guess Putress over did it huh?" "You mean the sky isn't supposed to be green like that?"

Are you that person?

You know, the one that drives everyone up the wall, but they need you around so they put up with it?  The one that everyone has gotten used to your quirks, but the new people can barely tolerate you?


Yeah that’s me ^_^


Not that I am super proud of that fact or anything, but I do find it funny.  My friends (who sadly laugh at my WoW playing) say that I am like beer, an acquired taste.  These people have known me since elementary school, so I figure that they would know.  I do like to think that I have mellowed out considerably since high school.  People do grow up and mature.  Yes I know, TOTAL SHOCKER, but it does happen. :-p


The reason I even bring this up is because last night in vent I asked for an idea what to blog about and Heleva, our resident Disc priest and Andrew’s lady love, brought up in a roundabout kind of way.

I give people shit.  I tease, joke, push buttons, it is what I do.  It isn’t done with malicious intent, and most of the time I can take it back.  If you are purposely picking a fight with me (like an unnamed guildie does, ALL THE FRICKEN TIME) then I will get into it with you and get pissy.  However, if you joke back with me, all is good in the world.

Anyway, last night I was giving someone shit, I don’t even remember who, and she said I should write about that, and people like me.


So now you know.  Onward to a new topic!!


Ok so I never go into LFG solo.  I can do without the badges, at least until I can get a group together with guildies.  Last night I decided I was going to go through my off spec gear and see what I had so I knew what I needed to get so I didn’t end up in resto gear dpsing.  I ended up missing a chest piece, wrists, boots, off hand, and 1 ring.  I actually had 2 pieces of tier gear (7 & 7.5) that I was unaware I had.  I had like 60 something badges so I went and bought a dps T8.5 chest piece for Tatia.  The boots I have for her resto set can be used for both so I equipped them for the dps set.  The wrists I have really are healer ones, but I didn’t have anymore badges and the valor wrists that I wanted weren’t on the AH.  Nor did I feel like bugging a guildie to buy them for my never used dps spec.  So I figured I would PuG some badges.  Hell people PuG all the time and usually have funny stories to tell.  So I figured why the hell not.


I got in queue for both dungeon dailies and for VH, because it is in Dal and is relatively quick.  Nexus was the heroic yesterday, and CoS was the reg.  I got 2 whispers right off the bat for both.  I also got a bunch of random invites without whispers.  I HATE that.  If you invite me without talking to me first I will decline you and then ignore you.  It is one of the rudest things you can do to me in game.  I absolutely HATE it.  If you don’t have the courtesy to whisper me to ask me first if I want to even go with you, then you aren’t worth my time, it is that simple.  So I ignored the people inviting me without asking and agreed to go on a CoS run from a pally who whispered me and DIDN’T invite off the bat.

I get in the group, 3 pallys 1 other dps (I really don’t know what it was, I don’t think I looked).  I asked in chat who the tank was.  One guy says “I guess I can tank, I thought I was going to dps” while another says “The guy with the 37k health” who just happened to be the one to invite me.  That guy replies, “My tanking gear sucks.”  This then brought about bickering over who had the worse tanking gear.

So here I am in a group of 4 dps, with no one willing or able to tank, all ready and raring to start this heroic.  There was no way in hell I was going with this group.  It was fail waiting to happen.  I was not willing to pay for the repair bill that was imminent.  So I quickly said “I am so sorry guys but my guild is calling me.”  Then dropped group, and logged off my druid.  What pissed me off the most was I was already in Tanaris and both my hearthstone and my Tourney tabard were on cooldown.  So I had 30 mins to kill before I could attempt to get back into getting me some badges.


I ended up sitting AFK on Millea for like 25 mins while I ran a bath and read.  I never did get back into the LFG channel.


Tonight is EoE, we have 5 sign ups.  I am betting that one of the 5 sign ups wont even bother to log in, will probably forget she even signed up, and we wont see her log in for a few more weeks.  Mis emailed me this morning telling me that the baby tank was sick, as was he, and he wasn’t sure if he would be able to do much this weekend.  He found out today that she has H1N1, poor baby.  My sweetie is also worried that his kiddo might get H1N1.  Apparently a classmate has it and the parents sent the kid to school.  So I am keeping my fingers crossed that the kiddo doesn’t get sick and that the baby tank gets better soon.

Mis can DIAF, where he wont get heals.




Mis you better take care of yourself right along with that baby!


please don’t gkick me!
