Endless Tank Proving Grounds wipe on wave 59. I've gotten the waves down to a science at this point and about 40 seconds into wave 59 will get me the server record. I have all the necessary cooldowns up and I'm not expecting to have a single issue with this wave.

And then I somehow manage to not get threat an ALL 5 mobs at the spawn. They run to Sikari, I check my Salv and HoP macroes and both are down. I run in, Hammer, grab aggro on 3 of them, and then, boom, Sikari dies and I lose. *sigh* 59 minutes down the drain and I am left incredibly disheartened.

Brutal, i've only given endless a singel attempt, re-doing the waves again and again is just boring.

Quite a chaotic few days in WoW: RL/GM quit WoW, with fragile raid team dissolving as a result (some quitting for more progressed guilds, others losing also interest in WoW). So far, we've patched things together by entering a raid alliance with another guild, and did 7/14 in two join raids over the weekend, which was a success. But my guild is a precarious position and it's hard to see how we can recruit when all we can offer them in the short term is Flex if that.

So during ToT, we had an enhance shaman that was decent, but lacked some raid awareness to the point that he would die to every single boss in some shape, form or fashion. This was so bad, we didn't bring in on any DA, LS or Ra-den attempts until well after the fact of us having them down to an art of being able to carry someone. So this tier, he quit the guild citing that work was interfering with our raid schedule and he left to another guild...so naturally, we recruited another. The new guy was quite good, didn't die nearly as much and was quite good at helping with strats on bosses.

Today I'm afking in shrine, see the recruit log on, and gquit. I'm like, wtf. So I whisper him. Turns out, our GM texted him saying his trial was over. Really confused, I check the guild log because I dimly remember the Gm saying the former shaman was coming back. Sure enough, he's back in the guild as a raider.

Can't double dip bosses. If you got a secret from a boss this week you wont be able to get a runestone from that boss.

Bad-standers make everyone else feel superior about their own abilities. Your GM is doing this for morale.

Highly unlikely, Cdan. It was always incredibly frustrating to see him die, ankh, die again, get brezed, and still die again...all to the same boss.

Another week with 0 drops off of celestials (using bonus roll each time). I'm starting to wonder if protection spec is bugged with drops (like it was for Nalak). It's probably just RNG, but it is frustrating to see nothing but gold x2 every week since 5.4 started.

Minor itch to play again...

Pros:
-Solo content that sounds fun (Brawler's Guild, Proving Grounds, etc.)
-Flex raids


Cons:
-Knowing I'd likely just be going through the motions (again)
-Having to work panama schedules, so raiding availability times would vary each week
-Having to pay a subscription (not that I don't have the money, but there are so many f2p options, that it feels Blizz should just give in already)
-Likely having to find a new guild, depending on the status of PK...
-Being super-far behind on the Legendary chain (I have a couple of the first collection quest that comes at Friendly or Honored [whichever it was])
-None of my IRL friends are playing (and likely won't rejoin with me)

In the process of attempting to Lawyer up to pay off some leftover medical bills from a motorcycle accident in April.

Found out that, in Florida, the mandantory personal injury protection that's packaged with insurance plans conveniently doesn't apply to motorcyclists.

Also found out that bodily injury liability isn't required by law, and therefore wasn't included in the other party's bare minimum insurance policy.

Wheeeeeee!

frustration 1: cant find the f**king relationships thread when i have something to post in it..

frustration 2" losing a friend over a seemingly innocent joke about history, specifically our history, meant to show i was doing what was requested and moving on and trying to be just a friend. well now said friend and i have truly cut off contact and ... yeah...not going more into it right now and right here but lets just say its pretty f-ing rough right now and not likely to get better any time soon

So I took off last week from work to take care of my mother, post-op. Went back to work on Monday, exhausted as fuck. Tuesday, had an annoying cough. Been flat on my back Wednesday through today with some nasty little bug that keeps me awake, coughing, wheezing, sweating, shivering, unable to do anything except double over and wonder if my lungs are finally going to come up. What wonderful timing this is.

Arrgggg. This is going to seem like such a small thing, but I just got vote kicked for the first time ever on any character just a few minutes ago, and I didn't even do what I was kicked for. SoO part two trash before Dark Shaman, and it's a comedy of errors. Tanks keep dying, trash is being pulled badly, and some jackass rogue pipes up with "It was a mage that pulled". Being the only mage in the raid and dead at the time of the pull I know it didn't happen, but nope, vote kicked.

Glad I waited through an hour queue for that. Now I'm sitting here queued again and so angry I want to put my fist through my monitor (but that would be bad, so I'm posting this instead).
