I think hubby and/or I managed to cause both bad and good in raid last night…..someone was asked to sit out and he was not impressed; his dad was going to sit out so he could come in, however the gm/rl basically told everyone that people needed to rotate and he needed to just accept that.
Once again I was reminded of the drama involved in running a guild with people who are only focused on themselves and not wanting to share it around…i know I know, we have only been back 2 weeks – but we have spent a lot of time getting ourselves raid ready. So much in fact, that comments were made at the end of last night about our gear improvements and behaviour…ilevel 356 for me and 358 for hubby….
Anyway to the whole kiting issue…..yeah….never been to new nef before and was asked to kite the mobs with the hunter….fail Mage incoming…arc spec 1and fire spec 2… Equals dead mage with very little slowing skills. A couple of times I managed to get the kiting happening but honestly not well enough for my liking. If I had known I was going to be kiting I would have changed my offspec in preparation but I didn’t know and was then told during raid that I should have frost; in a tone that implied I should have known that as a Mage I couldn’t kite in arcane…..all well and good if you know beforehand….all the strats I had read suggested plate wearers would grab the mobs or everyone helps in the control of the adds…so I was not at all prepared to kite….
I then mentioned it in raid chat – was ignored – and then on mumble (vents) that it wasn’t working with me, my hubby the SP took over my spot and proceeded to mind flay and shield himself…..bastard……
We got him to 45% on our last attempt and they will be going back in on Thursday I believe….I am not sure if we will be welcome back though??? Hehe I was hitting about 15k on stand and kill trash and I was on about 12-13k on the alarm bot boss….errr….can’t remember his name…..a bit lower than I would like but I will have to check out my stats in world of logs before deciding if that was correct.
Hubby uses recount and i use skada and we never have even similar results its kind of annoying really
Yes raiding is fun. Drama is bad. Can I really be bothered with the latter to do the former?
