Well, That’s a Change

Yes, so with nothing to talk about he’s focussing on the weather 🙂

Monday… hot, 35+ bushfire in Blue Mountains

Tuesday…. wet, um maybe 22?

I guess it still is spring.

I’m running both Mab and Das through HH to try and get the mount. I doubt I will, I’m not normally that lucky.

Though I did have a Hyacinth Macaw drop and got my Green Proto drake after only about 10 eggs.

15 Days of Screenshots – 3: Something that Represents you.

This is me, I have volunteered to stand at the wall and defend my home. That’s my choice in RL. So here I am, assisting in the defence of the Tauren homeland.

Where to for my Toons?

Okay, so Dasal dings 85 yesterday morning. That was almost an event in itself. I was was LFG healing Vortex Pinnacle with a tank who insisted on running ahead and pulling stuff. My mana management isn’t great at the best of times and when I spend the whole fight trying to catch up its even worse.

After a couple of mobs I hit 85, and the tank continued on his merry way. This time the first boss. If a party member is outside the circling tornados they take heavy lightning damage. Myself and other party members weren’t even in the same room when he pulled. I figured that I’ve hit 85, I’ve got better things to do than try to save the tank and now the whole party, when he isn’t going to change his ways. I left. Feel sorry for the others, but not the tank.

So where now for Dasal. Not high enough ilevel to let her in Heroics, so I’ll have to grind normals until I save enough Justice Points to buy more gear. If I want to keep playing.

I have raised my new Warlock, Mabango up to 23 so far. I might continue with her at least for now. It’s also interesting levelling in the areas that have changed so much since Cataclysm. The Barrens is same but not. Certainly easier, and a lot more efficient. And interesting too. I especially like the protect the caravan quests.

Mabaho hardly gets a run these days. I can’t get many Valour Points as I don’t raid, and I have all the Justice gear I can. Maybe with the release of the next patch I will be able to buy the newer gear then. I’ve almost forgotten how to play him, I struggled with the HH fight to remember rotations… oh dear.

Maybe I am getting ready to jump ship to SWTOR when it arrives?

How social is your Raiding Guild?

This is one of the posts that inspired me to write a blog again. How social is your guild? This is posted by one of the core raiders in the guild so I thought I might give the perspective of a very casual social member of the guild.

Bit of background – due to work, but mostly due to chasing two little girls around the house most evenings, I have never been able to spend the hours in front of a computer to commit to raiding. I managed it once, when my wife took our daughter to visit her family and I followed about a week later. That’s about it in approximately 5 years of playing! I love raiding but I can’t pull my weight at the moment so I don’t.

Ok, on to the question at hand – I don’t think we’re as “social” as we used to be. We’re still social, as Navi said, we have heaps of them, but guild chat is pretty quiet most days, people have stopped greeting people and small things like that. I don’t know most of the raiding team anymore – new people (and I mean new in the last 18months!!).

We did a couple of guild birthday events, we had bbqs (in RL!!) which seem to have dropped away as guildies have grown up, familied up etc.

We’re still a great group though. Even as a super casual player, I feel like part of the group – people help each other with mats, creating stuff etc. Advise – helpful or tongue in check is still given freely to all.

So How Social is my Raiding Guild – not as much as it was, but still pretty good 🙂
