I need to post more

I did start up a blog, but honestly I am lazy and can never remember to update anything...ever.

That said, today was...interesting.

Character: Shadopun, survival hunter

I was in a dungeon where the frost mage needed on the strength ring (Shadowfang Keep). The tank, angry about this (despite being a monk who uses agility not strength anyway: ooh 30 more health with 3stam woooh woooowww) charged ahead and tried to wipe the group because of it. Then we got a replacement tank who tanked in cat...went bear...but couldn't pull aggro off of the other cat/etc. They dropped and were replaced five minutes later by a warrior in heirlooms who didn't suck.

I was annoyed at the frost mage for needing on that ring, too--even I would have gotten more use out of it than them. Buuut it's not worth getting angry about. This is a game...and people are dumb. The End.

What is this "patience" you speak of?

Character: Celice, cat druid

Oh yeah. Patience.

My patience with WoW is astoundingly short these days. Last night I ran into an arms warrior with a shield/1h weapon, and I whispered him to inform him that arms warriors use a 2h weapon and if he didn't already know, that he gets increased damage or whatever for using it.

And then. I let. It drop. The guy didn't whisper me back, I accepted that as him not giving a bloody damn about how to play. Not everyone wants to be told how to play. I know when I was still a scrub, I didn't like being told what to do. (I WILL PUT ALL MY TALENTS IN ALL THE TREES AND I DO NOT CAAAAAAAARE!--though I did play alone/only quested solo at the time.) And I've learned that politely mentioning shit like, "Oh hey, did you know...?" goes a lot further than "You're doing it wrong, stupid."

So we had this heirloom-geared hunter (don't get me started on entitled heirloom-geared hunters) who started complaining about the arms warrior, as if we NEEDED his extra DPS to carry on or something--admittedly, his DPS was bad, but we weren't wiping or anything. And while he was at it, why didn't he complain about the healer who was STILL WEARING THE CANDLEWAX-STREAKED ROBES--WHITE QUALITY FROM A GOLDSHIRE QUEST, AT LEVEL 40-SOMETHING, IN DIRE MAUL? Well.

Of course I was also extremely put off by the hunter's comment about how the warrior was "probably messican". <--what the shit, racist prick. I tried to kick but it didn't work.

Later, after a lot more badmouthing on the hunter's part, the others got tired of him and kicked him with the reason, "k".

Then we wiped on the final boss a billion times due to the healer sucking. Yeah. Flash Heal =/= the best heal, no wonder he was out of mana on trash pulls. Between that and his white-quality robe, I mean, really. :|

I just have no patience to a.) deal with Stupid, or b.) do more than lead people through the dungeons they haven't memorized yet.

I used to be the cheerful, super-helpful dungeoneer, but lately I just want to get it over with. I'm only there for the XP, I don't care anymore if people pull for the tank, if the healer enables the DPS pulling for the tank, et cetera and so on. I just give up on caring. It might annoy me, but it's not worth doing anything about. If the tank dies, I try to pick up the slack, but otherwise, I just don't bother.

Entry tags:

Oh hey, a thingie

Joining the mass exodus from Livejournal, and I made a separate account for my WoW-related babble. I'm not sure why, really. I just get the feeling that not enough people here on DW care about WoW that my blathering might as well be contained...er...elsewhere.

And I love draenei, so why not ninja the name?

And so, for my first entry.

I seem to have this odd complex when it comes to running dungeons. No matter how many wipes there are, I can't abide the thought of leaving. Just a random thought I had today. I guess I just like to see things through!

In other news, I'm considering making IC/OOC posts, but not sure that my RP (or non-RP) matters enough to bother with it. Ho-hum.
