Sshhh

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 2:07 pm

The Munqui’s have been going through a quiet patch. At it’s worst recently, infection friday evening, I logged on and there was only one other guildie online!

Our guild master has been swamped with work and (I think) a little bored with WoW.

A few guidmates are occasionally playing in an open-beta.

Raids are being cancelled due to low sign-ups. I’m not completely innocent on this, I’ve had to downgrade to tentative on this weeks raid owing to predicted bad weather).

All in all, quiet. Not quiet all the time, it still gets positively raucus at times, but at other times it’s deafeningly quiet. This has been going on since before christmas, but it seems to be getting worse lately. Threads have even been appearing on the guild forums discussing other MMO’s.

Is it time yet?

No, not yet. I should clean my own house first and ask myself what I’m doing, why I’m doing it, what I *can* do, and where I’m going.

Once that’s done, I can come to a decision.

Something to think about on the train tomorrow…

oops

blah blah blah.

Okey dokey, hospital you can stop reading now.

I’ve done it, I’ve respecced elemental, from now on I’ll be joining looking for group as healer or dps, guess which role I’m likely to end up playing?

Gearing elemental is much much easier this time, three pieces of T9 from emblems of triumph get me 212 +hit chuck in a couple of JC-only gems and a single epic and I’m sat at a teensy bit over the raid hit cap, and insanely over the Heroics hit cap. My elemental gear is not sharing about 10 items out of 15 between healer and elemental, freeing up billions of more bag slots. So I can stop deleting items just to loot stuff, yay! Last time I tried gearing elemental it was very much a scrabble with Greens and Blues to try to get a reasonable +hit. Plus ca change.

I had a very quick bash at a target dummy and pulled around 3k DPS, I guess in a dungeon scenario this will probably still be respectable. Not that I’ve actually dps’d anything yet, not even on the daily quest!

The dreaded gear score has finally made it to Darkspear, with Trade being spammed with

lfm ICC 10 W/ME acheiv and class 5k gs plus

Sigh, not only do you have to have a bonkers “gear score” but you also have to have done the bloody dungeon already. Just so’s you know Flowersz is still a little shy of 5k sitting at 4.93k. Now any sensible person would thing that being 1.5% short was pretty trivial, but no:

2/7 18:48:14.494  Surenius whispers: hello how much gearscore?
2/7 18:48:24.334  To Surenius: just a mo
2/7 18:48:30.700  To Surenius: 4934
2/7 18:48:54.675  To Surenius: why?
2/7 18:49:02.030  Surenius whispers: nvm

I was in looking for raid for ICC, so I guess the request was related to that, anyway, apparently 1.5% off 5k is  just too low! I did say I was a little under 5k in the comments, maybe I needed to be 4950 or I’d DIE! Bugger ’em all, that’s what I say. Plonkers!

I did get a Vault of Archavon invite, and once again we see..

2/7 18:55:56.822  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: Inv Mooiid
2/7 18:56:05.155  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: Healer =)
2/7 18:56:14.343  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: Wait
2/7 18:56:19.772  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: asking him for achi
2/7 18:56:46.016  Mooiid has joined the raid group.
2/7 18:56:55.608  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: What is your gear like?
2/7 18:57:08.323  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Mooiid: more than enough
2/7 18:57:09.564  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: Let's inspect in WG, and replace if necessary
2/7 18:57:19.488  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: And that goes for everyone

Damageugood links his achievements…

2/7 19:00:36.671  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood:  Storming the Citadel (25 player)
2/7 19:00:41.479  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood:  Toravon the Ice Watcher (25 player)
2/7 19:00:47.175  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: No need to inspect me.
2/7 19:01:00.427  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Flowersz: Is the achievement a pre-requisite?
2/7 19:01:01.517  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Musek: you know, achiv can be faked :)
2/7 19:01:15.671  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: No it cant
2/7 19:01:20.918  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: Just click it, and check name and date.
2/7 19:01:23.930  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Musek: rly?
2/7 19:01:30.953  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Mooiid: but people can be carried thru it and be so bad
2/7 19:01:36.111  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Damageugood: Sure.
2/7 19:01:41.255  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Musek:  Fall of the Lich King (25 player)
2/7 19:01:47.690  |Hchannel:raid|h[Raid]|h Flowersz: then its pointless even asking then isn't it?

Anyway,  no-one asked ME for my achievement (which I DONT have). I guess healers are exempt for all this general ass-hattery.

We one-shotted everything and Flowersz came a very respectable 2nd on the new boss out of 3, and 1st over all the bosses.

Not everything was full of *ankers.
Wordpress deleted some text from the bottom of the last post, prostate
so in summary:

I got invited to a guild on another server, sweet.

I got a couple of thanks for the healing. Always nice.
