DO NOT try Banana Phone. That is not an improvement.

No. It is a terror weapon used by my son on his parents. I may just have to write a filk and exorcise it that way.

So, last week I started work again after three months without a job. This means, though, that I can't raid on week nights any more - as I'm playing 8 hours removed from my server, our usual raids atart well after midnight on my local time, and I just can't do that when I have to be up for work in the morning.

Back when I ws at my previous job, I'd just started running with this guild, we were in Naxx and then Ulduar, and the leader moved raids to Friday/Saturday so that I could attend. When I finished, she put them back onto weeknights, which wasn't really a problem.

This time, the raid leader (also one of our best healers) has a job that means she's only free on a couple specific nights a week - at the moment, Wed/Thurs, so she puts raids up on those nights. It's looking like this will continue for Icecrown, which means I will miss out on the raid.

On top of this, about a week before I got my job an old player returned from a long hiatus - a pally tank, in mostly Naxx-25 gear because of how long he'd been gone. This is someone I'd heard talk of before, usually the raid leader saying how great he was. So now, in his old T7 and a few Conquest pieces, he's the one tanking ToC, and it looks like they're going to take him into Icecrown.

I wouldn't really mind if I had a chance of getting in myself and sharing the runs with other tanks, but that just doesn't seem likely - my server is really, really bad for PuGs, and our guild alts and second raid group just aren't anywhere near the level of gear or experience the main group. I could try to organise my own runs with these, but from experience I know I'll get less consistent attendance and a lot less progress than the main group gets.

I'm thinking that unless something happens I'm gonna be left out of Icecrown entirely.

So I just found out last night that I got gkicked. This is the guild I fucking transferred 2 servers for. What did I get kicked for you may be asking yourself?? Well, apparently I pissed my GM off by being one of the only people in the guild will to stand up to one of his brother's RL friends who was constantly pissing people off and degrading them in G chat. What's even greater is the fact that I did so in a nice way. No cussing or anything of the sort. I logged on last night to find all my toons...read 6 or 7 toons all deguilded. I was angry for all of a couple minutes. But i did hear that they are officially re organizing into a 10 man casual guild. God, so much drama over nothing.

Some of my guild's alts (mine included) collaborate with another guild on our server to do ToC 25, ToGC 25 and Ulduar if we're missing some key people.

Tonight we were doing hearbreaker, and this was one of our wipes...

I died early on due to a gravity bomb going off during a tantrum that was too close to the melee. QQ at being the only death. Also I heard afterwords that 2 ranged and 1 melee were missing flasks, every bit counts! lol

On the bright side, I got the fist weapon off FL+4 so that was amazing :P

The patch is today. :(

Guild was going to allow alts into ToC runs, and I was really hoping to get a chance to flex my mage muscles in a real raid, and get a feel for how it really works.

Oh well, no deciding I want to main change anyway....

And a patch with a gated instance only allowing you to kill 3-4 bosses changes this how?

Because there is no chance at getting alts into ToC in a full run now. That was only a plan 'in case' we didn't have new content. We raid 3 nights, 3 hours a night. We will probably get 2 locks of ICC and 2 locks of Weekly Raid Boss.

Shoju: We'll probably need alts to finish filling out those second locks consistently. That's how I got my mage into ToC. The tank was locked, and they still needed someone. Voila! Mage picked up three pieces no one wanted.

I only raid on Thursdays with the occasional saturday. Thursday was just about my only chance to get him in since I'm NEVER locked on a thursday.

What I'm going to do is put myself out there as tank or ranged, just on two different toons instead of one. i.e. instead of bear/moonkin, I'll have bear/cat/mage options, whatever the raid needs. It works for me on Uldum with disc priest/prot warrior/elem shaman options. I'm the 'fill-in' guy over there, and I'm known for bringing a high level of play to the raid in any role. It's not the conventional way, but I find it enjoyable, and it's part of why I moved the shaman, because the one-toon way wasn't going to net me any hardmodes on Terenas anyway with the mix we have.

Not enough semi dressed draenei or belf screenshots on Maintankadin. I mean, its nearly Wintersveil! Don't make me get up on the mailbox again. I have a dwarven beergut and I am not afraid to use it.

Not just this, but the realm status page and the forums appear to have died, so no updates on what's going on atm.

Ah, well. Guess I'll crack open that book I've been meaning to start (with one finger still on Refresh ;)).

Someone decided it would be a good thing to hold a national study conference in Detroit...in December. I'll only be there two days but I'm still not thrilled about freezing my butt off since we're supposed to be walking all over campus. The only upside to my trip is that I'll get to see a friend from college for the first time in about 6 years. However, they are expecting snow tomorrow so if it is bad enough she may not be able to come meet me after all.

Question to the people who do recruiting for their guilds.

If you don't even bother to reply to an app, why?


I posted an app on the 2nd and more apps have been posted after mine, they were responded to with rigorous questioning. All I've gotten was a question from a random member about my Pyro Rockets. I haven't been found in game to talk to and my app is basically untouched. Excessive questions to find out my class knowledge, a thank you for app'ing but we don't want you, anything would be better than nothing at all.

How do I respond to this?

That's bad guild management really. You could repost and ask if they had any questions since your application had remained untouched.
