Why Traveling on Sydney Trains is like a Raid Instance

1 There is always someone running late for the Raid  Train.

2. In the mornings there is a boss at the end of the run.

3. You have to clear through trash mobs to get in the door.

4. If your lucky a seat might drop.

5. You need to avoid standing/sitting  in bad stuff

6. There may be a Heat debuff ( no Aircon in summer)  or a Raid wide Frost debuff ( Air con wayyyy to high )

7.  There is an Announcer instead of a raid leader.   Except the Announcer is usually more polite and perkier then a raid leader.

8. People cast  Spells Smells

9. Dodge is invaluable during peak hour enrage  

Finally  – Like a real raid there is a forum discussion after the  fight  – Shitty Rail a play on  the actual name  City Rail    

and on occasion while traveling on Trains we like to Raid Rave Naked

    Melbourne trains are similar except that for some reason the zone wide heat debuff also causes a combination of slowing and stuns.

    Metro needs to invest in Fire Resist gear.

    Istarian here. You’ve been playing way too much WoW :p

    Perth trains are nicer. As we get on at the start of the line, we get a seat. Its got Aircon throughout that is nice and cool during summer.

    Although we don’t get to rave naked. Oh well, ups and downs.

    That’s so true :(

    Also, why are public restrooms always +10 degrees hotter than the rest of the building/shopping center/temperature outside?!
