The ink trader hotfix just didn't happen, and now I all my planning for getting 3 more scribes up just fell apart (I have literally thousands of that still worthless ink). There is no way in hell I can farm the low level herbs thanks to CRZ (not that I would even have time for it...) GRRRRR

Thought it was BoP. It's not? Any particular reason for the angst? Do they sell for a lot or something? (Yeah, I learned mine).

On my server there are so many scribes popping up that I've ditched my plans for another one. Every zone you are in people are spamming for cards.

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.

lol true - I just meant that he can't undick them.


....well that sounded wrong. And is probably also technically possible. But uh, don't do that. Castration is not your friend.

Surgeries can be performed.

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.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

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.
