I have that same issue. Mine also came out of my experience while in Basic (Army). You were only given 5 mins. to eat so you just shoved as much in as you could until you couldn't swallow anymore and then I would take a small sip of my drink. You were only given this tiny cup of juice with the meal. I would seriously look like a chipmonk. As the years have gone by I have since lost my rushed eating habits but I still seem to get my whole meal down before I take that first thirst quenching drink. But I can never say that my time serving was not an unforgettable experience. :shock:

I can relate. I always need to check my hands to find my right. My best guess is some kind of dyslexia. THe downside is that as Raid Lead, it tends to get confuing at times "Go left! No, RIGHT! *BOOOM*". The upside is that I LOVE ground markers and use those a lot to direct the group.

So, the moral of the story is: Nika, use more ground markers :p *dodges inevitable thrown implement*
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

or is that just me?

If you weren't reading a dissertation every time you explain a fight to people (half of which know it and just need to know which is their assigned side) I think you'd be much better off. :P

I generally put a cliffnotes version in raid chat. ;)

I share your pain...
I already know that when in crysis (i.e. All go LEFT) -> i tend to have 50%chance getting it right :P

Ground markers are awesome... they are a life saver for me... :D
Go purple =/= Go right

P.S. Now that i think on it:
Here is my salute to all that cannot see collors and have some issues checking right from left... From my PoV that must be HardCore Raiding...

We have (had?) a colorblind healer. Makes for some interesting* times.

Same here. Oh man there've been some fun moments when he can't actually see ground effects. Apparently GTFO has literally been a lifesaver for him.

The bridge over the lava in Firelands (on the side towards Rhyo/Alys) has been missed by him on more than one occasion because he can't tell the difference XD.

More recently, he can't see the orb in Zon's fight (which makes it hard for him to time dispels.)

Blizzard needs to implement a colorblind mode (or allow texture mods that only change colors and not size/shape) for people like that.

Yeah, agreed. Heck, even I had problems in some zones with mobs and ground coloration if I wasn't in a dark room and had unit frames running. (scorpions in the firelands/molten front *shakes fist*)

A colorblind tank at Netherspite (kara) used to be fun to :D We got him down, but after all that hassle it took to get it down, we decided to just skip him for the time being. People that cant see colors surely give a nice dimension to otherwise quite straight forward fights ^^

Actually, yes, we did use those - I'd completely forgotten about it. Particularly for Sindragosa.

After 2 months of spamming LFR to upgrade my warrior's 384 sulfuras, losing rolls to tanks and afkers etc etc, I finally got not one, but two weapons last week from proper raid. A 410 Specimen Slicer and a 403 Gurth. So ofc, this week's LFR dropped this:

LMFAO!

Hahhahah, but of course. Although, let's be honest. If you hadn't gotten the real raid ones... you'd've lost the roll on every single one of those LFR ones this week.

Kind of random, but what is that mod under your quest tracker (with what looks like current buffs in color and other buffs grayed out?)

Some fellow from the guild <November5th> whispers me about something, and I eventually ask him if the guild name is a Guy Fawkes reference. "Not 100% sure." "So in the 35% range?" "Yes sir."

Turns out Blizzard's overactive profanity filter completely mangles "Fawkes". So this fellow's wondering why I'm asking about this @#%&@# Guy.
