Njall is not allowed to put up with a raid-leader's passive aggressive carping about his lack of experience on certain bosses. Bosses that, oddly enough, he has never seen before. Especially not after said raid leader asked him specifically to raid that night when Njall had made (and broke) other plans.

No, I shan't.

Edit: Sorry, not a funny one this time.

Carping always strikes me as being a giant waste of time. I'll usually let someone talk for about ten seconds then ask them if they have anything actually, you know, constructive or helpful to say. Then we get back to business.

I don't know if I have an autistic-like focus on things that are actually productive, but I can't understand why people waste their time (and everyone's time) doing or saying things that don't help.

The simplest answer is "people like to complain".

They're making me raid leader for the second 10-man group. We'll see how it works out. I'll be having a long talk with GM about the person in question - he's well aware of the problems I and others have with him.

Yes, well. I was in the process of learning how to tank Maloriak - as in who and when to interrupt and when NOT to interrupt. Others had been there many times but for me it was a new boss. Considering how many times the person in question's water elemental kept shooting the Dark Golem Council after they shielded, I think I deserve a little slack.

And someday, Njall will be castigated for airing dirty laundry in public by guildmates. :roll:

Our cloth wearers are not allowed to be anywhere near the elevator in BWD until they learn how to use it properly...apparently timing slow fall and levitate is hard (sigh)...also our warlock for whatever reason thought it was a great idea to soulstone and jump....AFTER dying a few times already, resulting in us waiting for his rez timer...sigh.

I blame me and bubble jumping down instead of waiting...but really I blame the hunter.

(Seriously though...bubble jumping and landing right next to the rest of the raid is just badass and awesome)

Bubble jumping and landing is awesome. If only we could do a 3-point landing with a surrounding dust-ring for extra badassituidnawesomosity.

The BWD Elevator Boss claimed three on the last run. It claimed a fourth when they were resurrected onto the elevator... in mid air and then fell to their death. Again.

Right? Three-point landing, while making the Thundershock sound with a circle of cracked earth effect on the ground while landing would seriously rock.

And we've learned the hard way to just release if you die on an elevator : p

No one playing Iron Man in the background? >.> Your three-point landings disappoint me.
