Too many kids still selling all their pets. Once the rush is over, gonna start selling off all mine.. hopefully there's still demand and little supply.

(Also waiting for auctionator to get updated so it works with caged pets).

Once again was ignored to get a raiding spot, again not even considered to at least the bench, my guild rank is "casual" still, can't even see the gbank, much less contribute/trade to it..

But yet they did wanted my help to do LFR and Sha of Anger which I did just fine (top 3 dps on both runs)

I guess I'll start the search for a 25m guild or another 10m guild with 2 groups... I was ready to raid since last week, now I know the fights even better and have better gear for it from VP, Sha and LFR runs.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel like this has been an ongoing issue for you for years now. Either you are not communicating well enough with your guild that you want to raid, or you're really just surrounded by dicks. And you can really only solve one of those problems.

Well technically, he could solve both.

1) Learn to communicate better and more efficiently (or stop being a doormat, whichever is the case)
2) Find a new group/guild to raid with that aren't full of dicks.

Yeah I'm gonna talk to GM, either I raid sometime soon or GTFO and look for another guild... maybe I even have to crawl back to the previous guild that was 25m, yes they were also douches and bad performers but at least I could see the inside of the raid instance...

GM's don't "do" ultimatums, so you'd best pack your bags if you make that approach. Well, if the GM does bend to an ultimatum then you have a bad GM.

Your best play is to make your case in a cool and concise manner. The points you want to hit are:

I have done my time as a "casual" and have earned the opportunity show what I can do.

I have shown what I can do vs Sha.

I am motivated to raid as shown by my early gearing.

My attitude is good an I am a good team player.


If you cannot make it into the raid team on those points, then you are facing a closed raid group that is not interested in in cluding any more people. Which means if you want to raid, you have to go elsewhere.

If your GM is not an idiot, he will understand that a person coming to him asking to raid and making a strong case to raid represents a retention risk if he is not allowed to raid. The threat of leaving is implied, and does not need to be stated. Doing so will simply negate the "good attitude" argument and destroy your shot at raiding.

You are frustrated, but patience will win where brute force will not. Grasshopper. FML this patch is getting to me.

DAMMIT!


24h later, I had to do two heroics to gather the justice (nothing dropped, OF COURSE). I get my gloves, all happy, 20 minutes befre the guild's LFR run aaaaaaaand.

Average stays @ 459. One rage and TWO heroics later, I finally get one piece of loot to bump me over 460.

There's some silver lining though - I got three loot in LFR. All three were the dps pieces, but still.

Considering how we're supposed to gear up in this expansion, the only true DPS gear is the one that has crit in it, anything else and its tank gear -- much to the chagrin of plate dps.

The wrist were super. The cloak and boots, less so, but at least they'll help with the dailies. I was more frustrated about my first "raid" with the new guild and not getting that stupid last ilvl point.

Yeah.. 38 wipes because of people either dropping fires in the raid or tanks who can't bubble or people who want to lose their shit when they get resonance.

I think I'm just getting tired of raiding.

Pediatricians suck.

My 9 year old son was sent home from school on tuesday (He didn't want to come home, but he wasn't feeling well, and was running a fever of 101.3F, He just didn't want to go outside for recess. He didn't even complain of not feeling well before school (Yes. He's one of "those" kids. Loves school, loves learning.) Well, his fever got worse, and body aches started in. It's been a year (almost to the day) since he had Viral Meningitis, so obviously I was concerned, and my wife was freaking out.

We call the Doc. Lots of stuff going around right now, the weather change and what not in the area played havoc on a lot of things. Yesterday, He is still ill, complaining of a sore throat. Pediatrician says "still not much we can do if he started the sore throat today, keep him hydrated, and rest."

Today, he's feeling a little better (fever is ever so slight at 99.5) but his throat is killing him. So I call the DR, and they say "oh yeah, we should see him today. Can you be here at noon?"

Well, NO. I can't. I work 30 mins away. My wife works 1hr away. I took Tuesday off, She took Weds off, and work is DEFINITELY busy for me right now, and my wife's office is preparing for their quarterly audit. My parents will watch him if he's sick, but I don't feel comfortable trying to get either of them to take him to the Dr's office. I tell them, forget it, I'll just do what I should have done yesterday, and I will take him to the Rapid Response clinic.

Wouldn't you know, SUDDENLY they can see him right away. It really felt like "Oh wait... We're going to lose that Insurance Payment? OH SHIT! SURE! We have an opening RIGHT FREAKING NOW" Ugh.

I am starting to get really, really sick of Nether Ray mounts. It's odd, I didn't really notice these problems when I was using them in WotLK and Cataclysm, but since re-obtaining them just before MoP launch, I'm hating them. They are hell for getting though doorways, through trees, over things... the riding position is so far off the usual spot you just can't judge collision at all.

I'm disappointed, because I used to like these mounts. :(

Having similar issues with the serpent mount. Sit so far back on it that I can't judge the active interaction distance from objects and NPCs. So back to my flying disc.

Welcome to the club, we give t-shirt.
Though I tend to rationalize that I'm the newbie in my new guild, so need to prove my mettle first.

The good new is, officiers are working on a second team, and I'm in a good spot to tank when it gets going.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.
