So, flying home tomorrow from a 3 week vacation in thailand with my wife, visiting her sister and doing some traveling in-country.

The awesome:
Seeing my sister in law again, and being to help her out with some stuff
Hopefully have lots of great photos so I can get my photo site going

The good:
Seeing some new places that I hadnt been to before.

The so-so:
Bangkok traffic - it's bad, but I live in LA, so.. Used to it.

The bad:
Raid group blowing up and 6-7 of them moving off server whle I was here. (Why was I having time to check on stuff like that? See below.)

The ugly:
My leg swelling up on the flight there, thought I was going to have a clot or something.. I think something did blow out. (I injured my late last year, guess it was not totally healed.)
Getting the plague 2 days before leaving... This will not be a fun flight.
Lost 5 days or so with either my foot elevated or the cramps.

Still, if the photos are good, that combined with helping out my sister in law will make it worth it.

Moral: Never, EVER, drink the fresh squeezed juice in the farmers markets in Chinatown in Bangkok. NEEVER.

Protectors heroic elite finally down! Now completely done with progress this tier, feels good. Had a lot of fun taking 2/3 interrupts on Asani. Avenger's Shield is awesome. :D

Got back into MSV again with a (nearly) complete raid group. One shot stone guards, 2 shot Feng and we where 55k short of 3 shotting the big trol :(

2 raid nights (of 2 hours and 15 minutes) in and we got 3 bossess covered. Love raiding with the old group again ^^

Moral: Believe it or not, beer, vodka and Cachaça are healtier that fresh fruit juice.
P.S. Did it had ice? people always forget the ice is made with non-bottled water.
P.P.S. Yes, if you submerge the ice in Vodka or Absinth, you can drink it.

Moral: Never, EVER, drink anything anywhere where you can't trace the origin, have not personally sterilised it by boiling the drink unless it is > 30%vol Alcohol (and then make sure it isn't going to blind you because of the methanol content). NEVER.


Mine is even more sensible, Mannstein :)

Well, I survived.. I'm back.. (and no thanks to Klaud as spinning images of aviation doom filled my mind... :D )

But the day was so hot, and the pomegranate juice looked so good.. (In retrospect, the likely heat exhausted probably weakened me enough that I succumbed to the "Chinatown Revenge". I had been drinking the water and using the ice that my wife had until that point..)

Mage came online last night: I got 20 minutes, you all have 5 minutes to get ready and we`ll go back kill the troll.

And so we did, in 18 minutes we killed the big troll and killed 3 bossess in MSV :D

And we are getting a king here in holland. To bad they are going to rename "Queensday" (Koninginnedag) to "Kingsday" (Koningsdag) instead of "Day of the King" (Dag van de koning). I like that last one much better tbh :(

Guild raid nights have only actually worked out 1 time so far, but I did end up getting asked to tank ToES with the group (well, what was left of it) I'd cleared MSV and part of HoF with last friday, going back in this friday.

So got my hunter moved over to the new Convert to Raid guild on Aerie Peak US. No idea if a raid slot will work out or not, but they are already up to 900ish toons in the guild, my wild guess is a quarter of those will actually raid. At least it will be an active guild.

Got my shaman faction changed, found a guild and did 6/6 MSV in less than 2 hours.

I almost forgot what it was like to actually raid.

We had some trouble organising tanking with me on two-dogs shouting which dog to taunt.
Eventually, we bit the bullet and I went for one dog, and just had to call wether "taunt" or "no taunt". Went like a breeze after that.

Fun fact: I'm now part of the raid team that includes that blind player from WoW Insider. He was on the team last night. On dogs Heroic. And no, he was FAR from a burden. A clear asset, even.

Fascinating in fact. Of course, it needs some setup to work right, and sometimes we need to have the boss on farm (Amber Shaper is the only one where I've seen it happen), but it works really well even when it sounds insane.

Sha of Fear? check! Empress adds? check! Freaking BLADE LORD and Garalon? He's one of the best *because* he's not counting on his eyes to guesstimate positioning!

Uh. Considering he needs someone to follow 24/7 in raids, I'm guessing he's complete.

We're not bosom buddies or anything like that yet :-p

I didn't see the article, so I'm wondering how he deals with the mundane stuff in the game, like doing enchants or gems, or other things where there are not audio indicators for what to do.
