I doan drink enough...

I feel like crap. The weather turned, and I've been walking back and forth to work in a moderately chill drizzle that sneaks inside of a jacket like Jessica Alba into my dreams.

Yesterday I came home early to miss a storm, crashed, then woke late and had A&F run maj through a coupla group quests.

Fer the record... I try not to start an ass kicking contest with a porcupine. We were doin the nagrand trampoline quest... herk lands, sees a gnome mage... prepares...

"Doan mess with him... he's o.k."

By which i meant... we're right next to the graveyard, AND the alliance base... and about to fight an elite... lay the hell off...

We got the quest done, but a NE asshat shadow priest (I believe my thoughts on NE's are well documented...) started crap then ran into the ally base...

A&F, of course, followed. The mage took the opportunity to get some cheap shots in on A&F before I scragged his gnome ass.

That's my side of the story, and I'm sticking to it...

Anyway, this post... I have to go home from work in about 2.5 hours.

I don't want to. Cuz when I do... my guild has signed me up to run Gruul with them.

They went last night. Had to pug three positions. One PUG was a hunter who wiped em twice with bad misdirects. Ten wipes in whole, High King still lives.

I REALLY REALLY don't want to go.

Melvin was upset. He's the mage tank for the guild. God help us all, HE'S THE MAGE TANK!

BTW... some insight into Melvin's personality... Zman has a post on pvp fire builds... I was discussing them with melvin when he told me it was too expensive to respec.

Melvin has 10k gold.

BTW, Z, love the guild name...

One more Melvin story... for the longest time, he ran without arcane powder. The guild wiped so often that he refused to foot the cost for the buffs...

blink. arcane powder.

If he were running with me, he'd get some simple questions. Want rezzed? 2 silver, 50 copper. Want buffed? 2 silver, 50 copper. Or, of course, you can do your share in which I waive the costs. (Yes, I've got free versions. They last less time, and force me to use more mana for everyone.)

re the part about not wanting to go due to burnout... my sympathies.

As to the last... I think the NE reputation is a lot like the huntard, sorry, hunter reputation. There are enough bad to make the discovery of the good a delight and surprise.

I rolled Alliance, leveled to 70 and then realized how much I hated elves. Horde gets to kill elves! Whoohoo!

So I rolled Horde... and they get elves.

This is a problem I don't know how to fix.

Ah Melvin, I wish he had a blog so we could all see how he views what he is doing it would be very funny.

Lance said...

Oh yeah tell him to pass some of that gold this way I have 64G.

Viet said...

agree with lance, tell Melvin to start a blog... lol. No, seriously. It would be soooo funny.

You guys just don't know what you are asking for. If he gets flamed like you know he will... we don't want to make him cry, do we?

BRK said...

Bad misdirects... please, more detail is needed.

/ponder

ArmsandFury said...

Ha!

I said the same thing on the phone and replied with...

Don't you just target the tank and shoot the (*#$ing mob?!

Zball said...

I just think it's hilarious they're using Melvin as the mage tank. I feel sorry for the plate- wearers in the run. Herk, here's hoping you can break 40g in one run! <3

Here's a bad misdirect:
So where standing in front of one of the Mag channelers waiting for a hunter to MD the first channeler onto the first tank. I'm just one of the dps wars waiting to smash stuff.

Raid leader says, "MD up."

I looked wide-eyed as a strange buff appears on me.?

Raid leader says 3,2,1, Go! Just as I realize what happened I yell in vent "NOooOOo!"

The mob takes me down to 500 health just as the tank manages to taunt the channeler off me.

I guess its my fault for not realzing what was happening until it was too late. :(
