No seriously, I do.
My previous post, like most on here, are scheduled a couple of days in advance so I can sort of do them in between my quiet times at work, home or before my shift starts. It works for me, but it also means things change quite quickly. It also means I post things and then, as you will see below, get called on before my posts have even gone live.
Here are a couple of examples of how my GM has freaked me out recently!!
Prior to my post about the main team, I got pulled into the 10 man team to get a Garrosh kill just before reset this week – apparently, I had not done it before …I was sure I had done 10 man (I think everyone thought I had done it – there was a few “huhs” coming from people – myself included). Here is evidence there are too many modes of raiding and I get confused too easily. I think I have actually done him in all modes now.
Sadly, you don’t get a second mount It would have been cool to get one with a slightly different colouration or something :p (I am just being a piggy because that means I could have one less to collect). I apparently only did like 146k dps – I blame the fact that I was doing the engineers….which is fine except….Aza gave me defective portals that only let me use them once, so I had to run back after the first one…we never got a third engineer so maybe I could have used it again, but I will never know. Aza then killed me after my millionth mind control…yes he shot me dead…I am sure he was laughing about it still!!
I was absolutely terrified that I would get the weapon whilst running back to Garrosh, which didn’t happen thankfully.
Then, somewhere between writing my previous post about being jealous – and my actual post posting, she pulled me in for a heroic Norushen fight AND messaged me about doing Heroic Immersius. SQUEAK!
So here is my first heroic raid boss kill since….Mor’chok! My worst DPS fight because I did 186k dps according to my recount. I also died because the deathray spawned on top of me and I ran in the same direction as the beam because I muddled up the direction. Like a dumbo! Felt really stupid for displaying my leet heroic skills by dying on the one boss they bring newbies in for because and I quote here “he is exactly the same as normal he just hits harder”. Yup.. EXACTLY THE SAME! GO DEATHBEAM!
Crappy DPS aside on this one (which is always going to be someone because they will get cleansed last) – I dislike this boss because of it. But I can’t even say it isn’t just about the DPS – because I died!! GRRRRR!! I tried to get a ninja pic with dontmountme but this was the best I could do…in ghostwolf…..not the same really…You can barely even see him!!
I was out again after that, but a few others were in there from the Sunday group, so it may be a little messy this week but we shall see how we go and who is online at 7.30pm before stressing about it.
So to the heroic team – thanks for dragging me into the boss (I really really really appreciated it), this image only shows maybe 4% of the actual excitement I have when I get to raid with the main team and thanks for putting up with my nub DPS (which is the bosses fault and not mine right!?!):
And then – I absolutely am not kidding at all about this, I logged into game after getting home last night and found this letter waiting for me:
Now that sums up everything I was feeling – except for the RNGJeebus thing, because I gave up cursing him years ago, I have come to terms with his dislike of my mage :) I like how she was only 95% sure…and as you can see from this post she was really 100% correct. I love my Navimie. She understands her friends and I can honestly say she is one of the most caring people I know. This little note brought tears to my eyes (yes, I am a sap)!
Have I convinced you of her psychic abilities? Well maybe one last thing will convince you, yesterday at work I was discussing with Drauka my DPS and how I suck balls when I should be, theoretically, able to put more more out. We were discussing clickers vs non and how to make the switch etc. The second I logged on (before I had read the above letter) I had whispered Aza for help in attempting to be a non-clicker seeking his advice as he was not in the raid and we had discussed it at the guild meet up (I will harrass Owl next but he was tanking so I didn’t want to disturb him although I am sure he wouldn’t have minded). However I went off to the Timeless Isles with the purpose of practicing being a mouse mover and non clicker. I can successfully report, my first night of practice sucked lemons. I need to move things around more – it is not very intuitive at the moment, I can’t strafe and use the number buttons at the same time. The entire point of this story was proving that I had already asked for help to improve my DPS!
Thanks Nav for always having my back! I really appreciate everything you do for me
