You know you’ve sunk when your wiping on Lootship. Repeatedly.
Hours to raid ID reset – and no ICC at all for me this week, on any of my toons so when I was on my main I saw there was pug in trade doing 6/12 and it was only a restart on the realm, not a shutdown.
It took a little while to form, but I have only been afking on cobblestones in Dalaran lately anyway, so afking safely outside ICC ( weee for pve) was not much different.
Marrow and Deathwhisper was messy, but we got to Gunship, and kept wiping.
The tank tanked, not kited, because Its’s loot boat…. aka no real thinking required right.
So hard to pin point what went wrong. There were so many things. The RL had never done heroic boat – and someone else in raid was a kingslayer so I didn’t even have to offer to change over, but yeah we swapped to normal because heroic was too hard. Tanks dying, mage not dying. People standing in rockets n stuff. It was so tragic it was funny, the best choice for cannons, for people jumping over, for tanks, for BLAH everything was all wrong. Then we started having armchair raidleaders chiming in with their magic fix so we would ” get it next time.. ”
Then someone clicked the wrong guy and started it before everyone was back after a wipe.
Then people started leaving.
I mean – I expect and accept bad on TOC, but I have never been in a raid that failed at boat.
AND IT WAS OK.
Well it wasn’t ok – but it was funny, and you had to laugh.
It was the last desperate dregs – raiding so close to the weekly raid id reset – I didn’t expect much – but I think I had fun.
I didn’t care about the badges, or rep, or even the raid ID, or dps – nothing mattered – and it was fun because of it. Doesn’t mean I was the one screwing up. I was just a happy little dps.
If it had been earlier in the week and in the mood to raid I would have been a lot more picky – but pugging seems to be a little slow in the times I’ve logged over, so I’m not doing many serious things at all.
Over a week of no serious raiding. I had a relapse – hence the last min pugging attempt at ICC – Trade is way quieter then I am used to. Which is a good thing I guess. I’m not meant to be raiding remember. Been doing all the Brewfest dailys – and between 3 80’s have so far 3 tankards of terror, 2 remotes, one Kodo ( on the wrong priest damn it – Why not my main.. ) It has to be the most anti social killing of any mob in the history of wow.
He dies very quick. I’ve healed it, dps’d and Tanked it and its stupidly easy. No one bothers to buff. As a healer I spend more time dpsing then healing, saying anything at all to these random players is a waste of text.
And I give more crap about excitedly opening the bag then I do earning it.
and WOOT 3 more minutes and I have something to do besides stare at cobblestones..
I changed my server from Oceanic to American, mainly because all my friends had moved to the American servers, and you can see your Wow people if your on US. My achievements, my practise battles, my campaign all reset with the changing of the region I’m like but but but.. it wasn’t much, but it was something. ( means I get to do more practicing! – I need it.)
American servers are still as quite as oceanic. Meaning no real idle chatter beyond “Please don’t build on top of me.. ” “Why?” “I like my personal space.. “
