simply staggering. I have been playing with my blog all morning and jumping from blog to blog.

I have even subscribed to a few of them now and added them to bookmarks etc, not something I normally do as I tend to not read blogs for very long, i tend to find they just bore me to tears or get far too technical for my interests.

So I am going to start getting out there a little more in the blogosphere and taking an active interest in the wow community outside of wow ๐Ÿ˜€

maybe others will find my little piece of insanity interesting enough to read ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL

Never thought I would say this

BUT I CAN”T WAIT FOR THE NEXT PATCH!!!

Yes, you heard me!! I am going to change frost faster than you can say “frost?” yes!! YES I AM!!!!

All because Blizz are making it uber sexy with brain freeze being able to use FFB ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, means uber nice DPS with the frosty spells on it. I will keep my spec as it is, I like the fact that I still get focus magic with it. I will also track down that macro that uses waterbolt and frostbolt at the same time to apparently increase dps…I have no idea where I read that recently…LOL…hang on lemme track it down ๐Ÿ˜€

ahh empoweredfire.com, thank you so very much!!
To take advantage of it, youโ€™ll need to change your frostbolt to this following macro:
#showtooltip Frostbolt
/cast Frostbolt
/use Waterbolt

I am of course going to have to look at my gear choices again if want to do that, as I wll need to stack different stats, but I will worry about that next week ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway I have wanted to be frost forever, and I know my guild will hate me for it, but seriously I have not enjoyed arcane at all, i hate playing arc even though it gives you massive DPS….I find it a horrible spec to play ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Yes I am being selfish! After 5 years playing this game I think I am allowed to be!!

WTF?!?!?!?

I was needed to raid again tonight, so i jumped online to help the guys out.

I was notified of a little event that happened the night before about tempers flaring, and was rather surprised to find that some people are getting more and more annoyed with running with the less aware people. I knew it would eventually come to a head, but I was perhaps not expecting the person it came from. Anyway, I decided, wrongly I think, to bring this up with the other GL’s, that perhaps we needed to calm the populace and try and come up with a healthy resolution to the issues.

The response I got was appalling, in my humble opinion. I was told to ignore complaints or information as it was people whinging and exaggerating!! This was of course AFTER the other officers said they had not seen any issues or heard of anything going wrong…because most people like causing public drama apparently….I know when I crack the shits I want the entirety of Azeroth to know about it…I mean seriously!!! Just because it was handled PRIVATELY!!!!! does not mean there are no problems!!

I know this probably doesn’t seem like anything major, but I just couldn’t fathom the conversation, I was speechless for about 25 minutes whilst they all discussed why they had not been told or approached and why they were not involved and me me me me….I was asking for some ways to bmp up the guild morale not be told I was basically lying.

Oh well, such is the way, I know being a GL is worth the effort when I have 50% of my guild being what you want in guildies. They support, they question, they ask, they help, they challenge, but they do it with respect and a little interest in the actual progress of the guild. I think I have learnt a valuable lesson this week.

Lesson: – Just STFU and don’t mention things to the others who are supposed to be helping you.

missing you :(

So Monday night?ย  I was needed to raid, so I jumped online for the guys, and spent the night wiping on Profressor and Dreamwalker.

Both were good learning experiences, difficult fights, and insanly difficult for some of the guild members as they are just not raid aware enough, this may be a painful trip to the end.

Aside from all that it reminded me of how much I miss the game, not so much the wiping and screwing up, but the being part of something that was bigger than just me.

I logged on to a whole bunch of hellos and yay your back and I felt all warm and fuzzy.ย  I really do love some of the people in my guild, they have followed me through so much and I owe them a hell of a lot, I wish I could do more for them and get some people in that can actually play, but well, it was never our focus and I think that has just gotten a little harder to be lenient about when they have made the encounters so much harder now.

But I missed my green chat, I msised my pink whispers and I missed my special channels.

Yes I am an addict, but I can’t help it.ย  I missed it, I missed my friends and I missed my bear.

I just sometimes wish I was in a more progressive guild, without me runnning it!!ย  LOLย  I hate ahving to boot people for not being able to play to a high standard :/ which = fail!ย ย  ย in this day and age.

Protadin to the rescue!!

So I have been recently running heroics on my pally, and that is probably an exaggeration, it has been about 2 weeks since I have actually logged in, but prior to this little break due to Real life, I had just started running as a tank ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I am basically trying to say, that I think I miss it!!ย  LOLย  I think I love tanking ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I can see why some people hate it, but I find it far less annoying than DPSing ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I am tanking on my warrior and my pally and I cannot choose which I prefer to play as a tank, they are both uber to me.

I don’t want to play my mage at the moment, I get too depressed when I log onto her and see she has no tier 10 due to lack of raiding at the moment.ย  So I like being on my wariror/pally who are slowly building up badges for the tier 9 gear ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Will be abe to start PUGging ICC with them soon maybe ๐Ÿ™‚ heehhย 

Just thought you should know ๐Ÿ˜€

Raiding

So once again I am reminded that I judge too harshly ๐Ÿ™‚

Last night the guys went into ICC and one shot Rotface…let me remind you that we have been working on him for weeks…we finally get him down and next time is a one shot?

They were getting the professor down to 55% consistently as well which means they were not all that far from getting it wrong….

Bloody awesome work!!

I was given news today that our ex guild, whom we had issues with and left abruptly has just imploded.

This news has given me mixed emotions.

I have no tbeen playing much as hubby and I have sold our house and will be moving in about 5 weeks, so we are spending every moment, not at work, packing and cleaning the house.

I have not even logged into the game for a while, maybe a week and I am suffering withdrawl and jealousy that the guys are raiding and I am stuck getting covered in DUST!! ARGH!!

Anyway this ex guild was made up of a great bunch of people, with perhaps a little too much attitude from the actual leaders of the guild, but overall they were nice. I think they wanted to see content and not be held back, anyway, they went off the deep end, booting everyone out of the guild, transgerring off servers and stealing guild banks etc.

I understand the pressure of running a 25 man guild, but I am not sure they understood that insulting people and calling them names and bad players etc is not necessarily the way to win supporters…

I am glad others in the guild can now see why we left and what made us decide to leave, however us leaving was probably the precurser to a lot of this….they went from having a 25 man raiding team and almost a 10 man team, to barely making raids run at all….and then from the rumours it just went downhill.

I feel bad that we have in some part killed another guild, but am happy that others can see why we didn’t want to put up with it…

I am in cross minds and I may jump online tonight to haveย  chat with the bois and find out any other gossip i can and perhaps chat to some of the people in the ex guild and rebuild friendships that I have a feeling may be able to be rebuilt now that everyone can see them for what they were….funny funny arsehats ๐Ÿ™‚
