So, is it just me, or is it really hard to look at Morogrim Tidewalker and not immediately think “Yarr! It’s drivin’ me nuts!” *
* So a pirate saunters into a bar and sits down to get himself some rum. He’s got a hook on one hand, a wooden leg, and a ships wheel sticking out of the front of his pants. The bartender looks at him curiously and asks “So, what happened to your hand?” “Arrr,” he says, “go’ bit off by a shark!” “Ahh,” said the bartender, “and the wooden leg?” “Arr, lost it in a deck fight – out numbered 4 to 1!” “Impressive,” said the bartender, “And the ship’s wheel in your pants?”
“Arrr!” he said, “It’s drivin’ me nuts!”

*tinfoil hat on*
What happens when someone you think you knew, maybe someone you’ve raided with, or someone that’s been in your guild awhile, turns out to not be who they say they are? And how do you approach that person afterwards, especially if they’ve been malicious to other guildmates?

Raid leader’s sick, sounds awful in vent, had to leave early to try to sleep. Raid assist has 2 year old twins with the flu. Main tank is Raid Assist’s husband. Healer Lead skips out 20 minutes in (school or something), leaving yours truly to coordinate again (no replacement is brought in for him). AFK’s galore, disconnects left and right, can’t seem to get either of our usual mages to stay connected more than 2 minutes, and Al’ar bugged out and reset at 9%.
I know. Al’ar doesn’t have a reset. But at 9% we all dropped combat and he went back to flying around the top of the room. I don’t know either.
Then another raid leader (from another raid) steps in as a sub, and while she’s very nice… she’s not really our raid leader. She’s got a few of her own raiders with her as subs as well, and while she was nothing but courteous and soft spoken, her other raiders proceeded to tell us what to do, what we’re doing wrong, call out for various skills/abilites that they think people should be using RIGHTNOW OMG, including a mage who told our pallytank how to play (and that he’d rather just have hunter pets tanking adds) but couldn’t manage to wait 3 seconds to start DPS on the adds so that the tank could get aggro.
Said mage also said in raid chat “rez me lol!” when I was the only surviving raid member and hadn’t rezzed any of the priests yet (selfrez ftw!) – no sh*t you need a rez, idiot – I can see that you and everyone else around me are corpsed! Also couldn’t figure out what spells he should use to fight Al’ar since he’s fire invulnerable. And he sounded like Beevis in vent.
3 hours of wiping on Al’ar. Funny how 3 hours of wiping can feel like you’re making progress and learning a fight, or it can feel like you’re in a room with 24 other incompetent morons beating their heads against a flaming death chicken. (And yes, I include myself in the incompetent moron dept.)
And I get to do it all again Friday/today! Since apparently there’s a group of the raid that want to do MORE WIPING instead of getting a chance to recoup some of our losses and gear up on things we know. This week was supposed to be “wipe on Vashj” week – so much for that.
