When my old raid group returned, we where humbly offered refuge in the guild of one of our old members. She is still playing and is the guild leader there. We accepted and we got our group back with leveling and running trough heroics. All fun and games with the other members while they plow on, slowly making their way trough MSV, mostly hindered by their steep requirements (ilevel 470, at least 65k dps is not really step in and join us level...). All good and nice, until last night.

The old raid group gathered up all 9 people we got atm and brought along an alt of our guild leader. We started at 18:30 so that our guild leader could join the other raid at 20:15. No problem there. We called it when she left, no problem at all for us.

The other raid had a total show-up of 7 people. And then the bitching started over the guild channel... That we did join with some guys but did not want to join with others... bla bla bla... And when we noted that we didnt meet the requirements for their raid (we got 6 / 10 at or over ilevel 470, and only 3 of them doing over 65k dps (of wich I am number 3 and only do it if i`m lucky >.< ) ), those requirements where all bullshit. Bah.

I think we`ll be moving to our own guild soon... This kind of drama from the guildy's aint fun at all. Especially if they are unable to normally talk to people from the other raid group -.-

If you purchase something on eBay from outside of the country, you need to understand that Customs Fees are NOT the responsibility of the seller. Complaining because you had to pay customs fees is NOT my problem. You bought it. You wanted it shipped out of the country. That's not my problem. I'm not going to (and I can't do it even if I wanted to) falsify customs documents for you. That's my ass, and my reputation on the line. I get a VERY generous discount on my shipping services, which I pass along to the customer, because I have had ZERO problems with my shipments. NO bad weights, no bad addresses, no bad customs forms, a low amount of insurance claims.

Falsifying Customs Documents is a crime. It's not a crime that I'm going to commit for your $40 ATV Shocks.

And another thing. You really don't have the right to complain about the size of the shocks you bought when EVERY CONCEIVABLE DIMENSION was listed in the description. How you could look at something that gives you the length, girth, shock length, compression values, Shock Diameter, Mounting Hole sizes, and the weight capacity of the shock and then complain that the shock is smaller than you thought is mind boggling.

I hope that eBay takes my report seriously. I'm freaking tired of idiot buyers who don't read, don't check where it's coming from, and then complain when I charge them the ACTUAL PRICE TO SHIP IT, and then complain because it doesn't "look like the picture", because the "picture made it look bigger."

I'm sorry. What part of a picture of an ATV Shock on a SHELF with NOTHING for a frame of reference made you think it's bigger than the dimensions LISTED in the @#(*&^(@#*&%*@&#$^@*&#$^ING AUCTION DESCRIPTION!?

It's probably a good thing I don't live in Canada. I'd probably call you and ask you if you were dropped on your freaking head as a child.

But if you lived in Canada and were Canadian, you would prolly call him to say you're sorry that he was dropped on his head as a baby before going on your rant.

No No, I simply meant live in Canada, as I am not allowed to call internationally at work. We still have a fairly archaic phone plan here.

When confronting someone who needs to step up their DPS and being countered woth easily disprovable claims like "I'm top 3 DPS even beating the person playing the same class and spec with better gear" I get frustrated.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

My go to responses in that situation are either

"Congratulations he sucks a little more than you do" or "If your DPS was half as good as you make it out to be this boss would be dead already"

I'm such a people person.

updated on our druid healer.

Well, he got his heat sink replaced and his vid card replaced. everything booted up fine at the tech's shop where he had it replaced. get's home...everything keeps shutting down after 15 minutes.

talks to another guy and they think that when the water cooling system started to leak...besides leaking on the vid card...it also got onto the motherboard...so he may need a new motherboard now.

at least we wiped a few times on Elegon last night..again. Got him to 8% but random dps were dying and went with an under-geared healer at the last second.

i just want to beat that fucker at this point.

I'm just amused at the balls in using easily disprovable claims. The only fight this person was top 3 on was the trash before spirit kings that somehow gets logged as a boss on WoL.

11 Lei Shi kills and no wep even with coins
11 Emp kills and no bow

I give up. I love how out of 16 bosses in this tier I have a whopping 2 options for an upgrade while casters and melee get six million options.

Everything about gearing up alts this expansion has been a giant pain in the ass and I'm thinking about just going back to my shaman and saying fuck it, letting my alts rot and logging in 2 days a week like I did in cata since I have nothing to do.

Someone on the other side of the cubicle wall is either dousing themselves in perfume/cologne, or is having so many accidents that they need the baby powder bomb to soak up the mess.

I don't know who it is, or what they're doing, but next time, I'm probably going have a fit. I felt my throat tense up like it was going to close up today, and I'm coughing like I'm sick.

To be honest i feel similar. I have 5 lvl 90s now, soon 6, but I only really play my main. It's fun and all to gear up a new alt in heroics, but once you are decked you can only run MV lfr and that's it, getting to 470 ilvl is very painful if you don't have a stable raid to attend and don't want to ruin your life by running dailies on several chars :S I really hope the increased droprates in 5.2 will make gearing up a bit more bearable.

My druid is ilvl 485 and I'm not particularly looking forward to 5.2 LFR with it :/ Doing LFR is really frustrating because you get tanks that insist on constantly moving the boss, making it nigh-on impossible to play Feral properly.

At least you havent found a tank who brings WotE boss in the middle of the raid during a devastating combo after having said he knows the tactics.

Sha of Fear attempts have been "meh" for the moment - I'm on the 2nd away team, and the 1st tank isn't back by the time I get cackled away. Cue horrible death. And of course, no-one had WoL active. At least mine is ready for next reset!

EDIT: and also, people were hitting on a couple of nails. So I'm confident we'll have it down next reset.

I have, however, had tanks on Garalon that are intent on activating Crush every 8 seconds, or on Sha of Fear that refuse to stand in the yellow light - despite being yelled at and whispered to by the entire raid.

The New Season of Face Off has been rather disappointing so far. There are 3 people on the show so far who have given me a sense that they could have been selected with the previous season's casts. And of those three, I think it's pretty damn clear who the best of the bunch is. He has won all 4 challenge's that they have done so far, and really not been close on 2 of them.

For those of you who aren't familiar, Face Off is a Freaking awesome Makeup Effects show on SyFy. I'm a huge fan of "practical" special Effects done well, so watching the costuming, and make up involved in this is a blast.

Seen the yellow light failure a few times... really, they can't understand that?

Frustration with the raid group that bailed, that none of the leaders bothered to talk to me when I did get home and get on. No ingame mail or anything.

So finally talked last night to one of the raid team that bailed, one real friend out of the bunch, and as it turns out they are getting crushed in the new guild for being "slackers" and getting yelled at a lot. Good for them. :D
