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.
