Sunwell, 8/8 and Corrupt Ex-GM’s.

Posted in Guild, Items, Raiding on June 25, 2008 by pallywithash

Yes, what a mouthful! A quick summary since I don’t have the energy or time to go in depth. About 2 months ago I felt a need to jump to a more mature guild, not to mention I had this growing feeling that my GM (Amazed/Titharenko) was going to fuck the entire guild over at any given moment.

So, with that eerie thought paired with our lack of progression — I left Cloverfield and joined one of the top Alliance guilds on Frostmane, Dragonflight. Shortly after leaving Cloverfield I come to find out that Mr. Amazed the GM has been selling Cloverfield’s Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raid ID’s to another top Alliance guild, pocketing the gold for his own selfish reasons. Now, he and I had a few talks when I was in the guild about him putting his account up for sale, checking how much it was actually worth — finding this out from my ex-guildies only supports my thoughts about him being crooked. Oh well. Onto bigger and much better things right? Continue reading

Shield WOOT!

7 weeks later…it finally drops. Had the the gem and enchanting mats already sitting in my bags. Nice upgrade, not I don’t look like a ghetto pally! Bastion of Light!!!

Been a pretty lame week for raiding though. People are either quitting the game/guild or just outright not showing up. I guess that since it is indeed finals week for the teenie boppers in our guild as well as the college students that it’s somewhat understandable but it’s outright frustrating for us losers that work 9-5 and come home to raid. 

On a non-WoW note, closing on my condo in a few weeks. Will be nice to move in and have a place that I can call my own. Definitely going to be pimping out my “gaming station” 😉 LOL

 


Still no damn shield(s)…

Yet another raid week goes by in which neither Felstone Bulwark nor Bastion of Light have dropped. I hate being next in line for an item and it taking weeks months to drop. I don’t mean to QQ but it’s getting annoying. Guess my good old Karazhan shield will have to do for now…

And what do you know…no less than 30 seconds after I made this post, I come back into game and realize that Shroud of the Final Stand was just looted to me 🙂 Ironic isn’t it? 

Bulk update…

At times I forget this thing exists. Got some exciting stuff to blab about I suppose. Been increasing my raid time back to 4 nights a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday) and doing a lot of SSC. The guild is progressing pretty well seeing as we made some nice solid, first attempts at Lady Vashj tonight. All in all I think this is a pretty solid guild with a handful of incredibly good Paladins (Netto, Banis props!) as well as really good tanks. If attendance keeps up the way it’s been for the past few weeks I can see us in Hyjal by early August.

SSC PROGRESS: Took a few hacks at Lady Vashj tonight. The fight seems pretty complicated when you read the strategys and watch the videos (something I don’t enjoy doing, first hand experience where it’s at) but it doesn’t seem too rough when you’ve got capable players. We took her down to 60%-70% on the mere 5 attempts we had. We were missing 3 of our top DPS tonight so barring attendance issues I’m predicting that we’ll get her down next weekend 🙂

NEW LOOT: Snagged muh Justicar Pauldrons tonight on a double drop as well as one of two drops of Boots of Unending Courage. Netto was kind enough to pass the first pair, shortly after we got another drop 🙂 Pally night indeed.

RAMBLINGS: Got a nice vacation planned for late August. Buddy of mine won tickets for an expenses paid trip to NYC to stay at the Four Seasons hotel 😉 Airfare included bla bla bla. So we’ll be going up there to pickup some nice thick accent New Yorker chicks! If you know of any hot spots that we could hit up, leave a comment! Unfortunately the Yankees are going to be out of town that weekend so we’ll have to figure something out.

And a few Karazhan runs later…

Pulled in some nice new loots this week 🙂 Moroes dropped Boots of Valiance for me, picked up a nice little healing ring in the form of Mender’s Heart Ring and last but certainly not least I got my first piece of Tier 4. Justicar Gloves. That puts me a little above 1400 +Healing now with a few key enchants missing (+81 healing to my mace would be nice).

Now I’ve got to go through the pain of farming for Primals to enchant this stuff. Do I miss Ret yet? You betcha 😉

3 months later…

…and I’ve made my little return to the game. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed NOT playing WoW for those 3 months. It gave me time to get a lot of things in my life in order such as breaking off a 6 year relationship that NEEDED to end, losing a metric ton of weight that I had gained over the course of my “WoW Career” as well as catching up with old friends and actually going out for a change!

So now that I’ve learned to control my time spent playing the game I’ve hopped back into raiding with my new guild, Focused Agression on the Alterac Mountains (US) server. They’re a pretty chill guild, some really skilled players and my class leader is one hell of a Paladin. Going to really need to gear up and pull out all of the stops to bust his ass on the healing meters! 😉

Anyway, picked up a few new items this past week in Karazhan. Shard of the Virtuous, Triptych Shield of the Ancients and Legacy to satisfy my old Ret cravings.

I’ll probably be updating once or twice a week for the hell of it so keep on coming back.

Lack of blogging.

Just a heads up to those who read this thing (and a big “F-U” to those of you at nutkin.org) 😉 I’ve been really busy with real life stuff the past two weeks, so much that I’ve barely been able to raid. Between work, planning a wedding with teh fiance and hitting the gym it’s getting tough.

A little side note, got a nice few pieces of loot recently. Bracers of Justice and the Ribbon of Sacrifice. I got the Shaman to level 30 the other day so I’ll be starting on Jame’s Leveling Guide soon so that I can get her to a “twinkable” level and have some fun with PvP while Kerni is spec’d Holy. Anyway, I’m out!
