Settling in…..maybe?

So new guild, all new toons and new faction, so many things, I have run out of money, no surprise there, but I am on annual leave all this coming week, so I will be doing as many dailies as possible on all 3 of my level 80’s (not just dailies but opening up quest areas as well like Icecrown etc) for the cash.  My warrior is on another server still, but money does move servers you know :d hehe

I think this week is going to be hell boring doing it, but it should set me up nicely financially.  I am also going to spend the week attempting to play the AH to my benefit, after all I now have a toon that can disenchant stuff, so that will be a bonus money maker, if other people don’t beat me too it.

I am slowly settling in, I feel awkard and unsure of myself, which I am sure many people feel when they head off and start something new.  I feel very relived that I log onto the game and the couple of sparse whispers I get are about people and not guild issues, that makes for an enjoyable play time.  And if we don’t respond to each other straight away there is no follow up hounding…it is nice 😀

My bear transferred his level 80 hunter over, so we could run heroics together occasionally etc, which is cool, we did one this morning, hopefully will catch him again tomorrow.

Hubby got into the same guild as me as a raider, I am happy, as we were not sure he would. His gear is slightly less than mine due to his old shiftwork – thank god he doesn’t do that anymore (yes it has only been a week but it is bloody nice knowing he doesn’t have to work until 10pm), he would raid only say 40% of the raids we had, even less probably. But they looked past that, and we are now in the same boat – fighting for a raid spot and on a more casual basis until someone drops off…and only then if we prove we can play.  So it may not be the perfect position to be in, but as I said to hubby a new xpac always brings changes, AND we are with the guild we have been wanting to be in for almost 2 years.  So what if we don’t get to run every single night in their progression runs, they have plenty of other runs happening all the time, we just have to get in on one of those.

All in all, I think it will be ok providing I pass my trial period, I will just try and get to know the people and make friends where I can.

I just re-read this post and it really was a post about nothing 🙂 But I guess I just wanted to get the thoughts out of my head and onto “paper”.

That is not what I expected :)

So, to cut a long story short,  I got into a raiding guild on Caelestrasz….back to the fail server, but with a guild that has me as nervous as a school girl behind the bleachers….do they even have bleachers anymore?..more to the point do school girls even get nervous anymore ?? Especially since they are out there having babies at 10 and 11, they are barely school girls…

Anyway I digress.  So i moved my mage last night and whispered an officer, the last time I even dreamt of whisping anyone in this guild I was probably actually dreaming… Continue reading

The end of an era

So,  after some decisions and depression, I have left my guild.  I really shouldn’t call it my guild, it hasn’t been mine for a few weeks.

I am switching horde!!!  GO TROLLS ya mon!!  Not sure I can RP a troll, I shall have to change my story so far.

Anyway it was not an easy decision as I will miss people dearly, but I have tried for the last couple of weeks to ignore what happened, but I have this paranoia that I am just an annoyance in the guild now.  It is probably not the case but when I am second guessing everything including myself it is not the environment I think I should stay in.

Everyone was gracious with my departing post and I spent what small time I had fixing my mail to switch my characters. 

The extended maintenance last night was a nightmare, I logged on got what I needed to get done complete, but then I got booted off and couldn’t get back on….I ended up just going to bed after that, but was hell frustrating as I wanted to say goodbye to some guildies….thankfully I have their emails and I will just continually harrass them from here on.

So onto new adventures, new cities and a new mount collection, I only levelled one toon through the horde side, so this will be a new thing for me – trying to remember what is where etc.  This is the first time in 3 years that I have not been the GL of a raiding guild, I don’t know how I am going to cope with that, but let’s give it a shot.

So goodbye alliance, good bye my friends in MA and good bye to all the friends I have made on Dath. 

Catch you on the flip side!

Single Abstract Noun

I just wanted to put a shout out to all the SAN people.

I have decided to try my hand at some RP, so I may started putting up some posts about my widdle warlock, they potentially will suck and be horrible, but hey it will give you a laugh no doubt 😀

My toon is dragonray and she is a little warlock.

Works hard for the money

Was a fucking tough night tonight, no matter what we did we just couldn’t get it happening we spent 1.5 hours wiping on professor, wiping wiping wiping….just things going wrong all the time…it was tough, tough tough….. we did get dreamwalker done as well, however that was a 2 shot as well….just not happening tonight, I think too many people were tired to start with and that just means not enough focus….it happens, we all have those nights.

not much else to say really, but it makes you appreciate the nights when things DO go right…

I lie, there is plenty more to say, but spankypants already copped an earful from me tonight and it would be unfair to dredge up something when he was doing a stellar job trying to smooth it over 🙂

Last night before raid I was trolling a few blogs as I always do, and i noticed a theme, so many people are having trouble getting people to log on for raids because Cataclysm is coming….now I agree, it is coming – at some point, in the future, but as for when? Hell we have only just been thrown the beta opt in and from past experience, that will take at least a few months, let’s say ballpark 3….then add 2 months for the release date and actual launch etc.

So that is still a very long time to be not raiding or doing anything in game except standing around twiddling thumbs? I plan to cut raiding off once we have a confirmed release date AND after we have killed the Lich King a couple of times. I am pretty sure most of the guild would be ok with that, most of my guild though, want to see the Lich King Dead, so we are all pretty motivated to do that 😀

I have so much to do once an announcement has been made about release, I have to consider, once again what I want from the game, how to implement that with the guild and not lose people 😀 , I have to re-do the website – it is in need of a major overhaul, and the guild needs a major overhaul, and I need to toughen up as a guild leader if we stay together as a guild and move forward. The guild as it currently is, is almost in a state of perfection, yes we have shitty nights, and yes we grumble and grizzle, but we have the best group of players right now, better even than the players we had back in SSC/TK days….This group has the potential to do so much and move through content so quickly….everyone single person picks up strats so damn fast, we spend a couple of shots wiping, then you can tell when people understand the fight….I know we could be awesome…..however I digress….massive tangent there….

I would be heartbroken if we were like those other guilds struggling to get raids happening, yeah this week has been slow for us, but we have 5 people down, out of a 14 man raider base, shit happens really, and from next week everyone will be back on board anyway. We really are the lucky ones that we have found 13 other people who are just as motivated and enjoy raiding as much as each other.

I do love my guildies and I am so glad we have worked so hard to get this group to where it is. Hopefully being that we are coming into a new expansion with a great group, we won’t lose anyone and be behind the eightball. It is my fault really – every time new content comes out I move or change the guild and it sets us back, this time I am hoping everyone will stay together and we will be able to level quickly and get back into raiding really fast 😀

My first video :D

This is my first attempt at video for my guild recent Blood Queen kill 🙂

Yes I did say first attempt, so be gentle with me 🙂  I am sure I will improve with more practice!

Tonight was a great run.

We went into ICC and cleared 9 bosses in one night…all one shot – except for princes, we are not sure what happened, but the hunter tank dropped before you could blink, we think it may have been a flaming ball of death!

It was a very good run, most of the gear was taken as offset for people which is a great sign we may finally be hitting the upper ends of gear in 10 man ICC.  That, and the same pieces are always dropping and therefore not actually being taken.

I equipped my wand from Blood Queen (last week, I forgot to put it on) and I also got my exalted ring, which I need to whack a gem into…might go haste I think!

We are going back in to do the Queen again and then get Sindragosa down, yes she will go down this week – if not tomorrow.

Tonight, however a serious of events set me off mentally, that by the end of the raid, I was fucking angry, so much so, I barely spoke on vents and as soon as the raid was called I jumped off vents and offline with not a word.  Had I not done this I am pretty sure when I had opened my mouth to say goodbye I would have said something very regrettable.

As it is I am likely to want to make snarky comments to the guild about a few things for the next couple of weeks and am just going to have to curb that want.

To be honest I am not entirely sure why I got so annoyed, but I think it has something to do with people not wanting to try anything out of the realms of normality.  If it hasn’t been done before, we can pretty much rest assured that like fuck anyone in my guild will want to try it.  God forbid we do something DIFFERENT – never mind that I have attempted this exact thing previously and it served its purpose nicely, in the end we never needed to actually implement it officially, due to changes in roster.

I think after re-reading that paragraph, what annoys me is that it shifts from what the guild needs or things that may make the guild improve, to what is not beneficial for the individual. 

I want nothing more than to run as frost,  but from a DPS perspective, they are pretty bad in a raiding environment,  so I stick to arcane and may even try fire as my hit is so over the top now as to pull it off.   That’s beside the point,  what I think about is the guild, and if the idea will help the guild surely some support from someone to even attempt it would be better than flat out refusal and mockery?  I am sure (let’s try and think positive hey) that my guildies were not deliberating trying to make me feel awful and like a fucking idiot for suggesting we TRY something 🙂  I am sure.

Anyway it doesn’t matter,  I told all the people having a go to just forget about it, we would just do whatever was easiest for people to deal with.  Some times you just have to shut up, smile and nod your head. 

The other things that got on my goat will have to be addressed in some form in the next couple of weeks, but for the minute I can’t be bothered even thinking about it, just gets me worked up again and I would rather not if I am going to raid tonight.

Enough of that, I am over it now….nice to vent sometimes – just get things off my chest and hence why I blog really 🙂

Well at atleast for us she is,we have no spent 2 weeks screwing up on the third phase.

By that I mean, some people are finding the concept hard to stand in a group until the ice tomb hits.

We were starting to see it come together last night, but still far too many people were running around like headless chooks.  i think it may be time for me to crack out the highlighters and set them all straight on how to do it……LOL I may have to use pc paint though as I have not unpacked everything as yet.

Having major issues with our healing department at the moment, and to be honest I am at the end of my tether – friendships aside I am sick of the complaints about a specific person and so it may just be time to tell her how it is again.  I am however in the middle of trying to sort out our house settlement – three weeks late mind you and we are MAYBE going to have it all sorted on Thursday – so at the moment, I am not in any frame of mind to tell people they are not able to raid with us anymore…I am liable to just be nasty if questioned and I don’t think that is a  good place for any Guild leader to be in….I wonder why I have other guild leaders at all sometimes, but again I am just being nasty, so….grrrrrrrr!!!!

Maybe next week will be our lucky break – and then we can start working on the Blood Queen and Lich King…so damn close if we get Sind down 🙂  and we were getting her to like 20%…..so not far off to be honest.

More firsts for my magey :D

Last night in ICC I got to see Dreamwalker, Professor and blood princes all killed for the first time.

Aside from a little issues on Professor as one of our tanks learnt how to drive the Abom (we normally have a dps do it), it was a good night, was a little messy in some spots, but to be honest we have only recently managed to start actually killing the bosses and So far – Professor sucks the life out of me…he is the most HORRIBLE fight I have ever seen!!

I cannot really express how much I hate it.

I love the blood prices fight – that is one of my favourites i think.  Sindragosa is also shaping up to be a fav, we tried that a couple of times last night as well, and I got made into a tomb at one point – I was excited by that. When I was in the tomb I couldn’t scroll my camera out to watch everything else going on , it was like I was actually in the tomb….WAS SUPER!!  LOL  Yes ok stupid I know but I get little joys like that almost every time I raid 🙂

It was a mail drop night last night with most pieces being sharded 😦 but that is a good sign I guess.

All in all was a good night I think, with some real evidence that our current raiding team is the fucking shit. We may not spend all that much time actually raiding, but OMG we do a good job with the small time we do have.
