I guess one of the benefits of being behind in gear is that I generally have small amounts of competition when requesting items.
Raid night was pretty good, I was exhausted though and really struggling to stay awake or even make sense of the english language (unless it was a gutter joke). I was really struggling!
I died on the trains because I was standing too far back near the door and then the quick train comes in I wasn’t far enough over (by a few mms) and I got clipped, I died on Kromog because my hand got taken and you can’t ice block or anything during that…I also don’t have cauterise at the moment – I changed out of it for instant invisibility during iron maidens and didn’t change it back (stupid me).
I blame Ultra for that death He took my spot even though I was already standing there alone..somehow I was the one thrown up in the air. I made some dumbarse comment later to him in whispers which as per my previous post I am really embarrassed about now, and I hope he forgives me one day! Sleep deprivation is a bad thing.
I couldn’t believe it when I managed to get a tier piece for my head as well! I did manage to get a picture of dead Kromog since I forgot to last time – seemed to be the right thing to do since he did give me a Tier piece…and he didn’t have to. You can barely see my toon standing next to him…just the two little blue lights from my stave!
I hadn’t even realised that when you make them up you get different levels on the Heroic/Warforged, I only realise because we have had so many shoulders drop for the mage grouping we are now giving them to people who need the chance at upgraded ones. My shoulders are heroic warforged and so is my helm now. My robes are just heroic. It is pretty cool.
I do confess to being in a love hate relationship with the gear being so different by RNG. It makes it hard to compare or determine what you need, but I like that it means we are all different and are not likely to have exactly the same items or stats by design.
I am now one piece off a 4 set bonus!! I also manged to get some new boots from Gruul Cavedweller’s Climbers– I haven’t equipped them yet as I need to get a multi-strike gem in them, but I am hoping to get that done tonight. I even asked Hwired if he was sure I was supposed to get the Tier piece….I was not expecting that at all!
All in all pretty happy with that night. I didn’t go the next night, I was simply too tired..Thursday morning I had major issues with basic cognitive function and my tummy so I was pretty much asleep all day and couldn’t bring myself to only get 4.5 hours sleep. It’s funny, I spend more time driving to and from work than the amount of sleep I am getting on raid nights on early shift. That is addiction…or stupidity…or possibly obsession…but I want to be online helping the team. I cannot wait until we move closer to the city!!!
