Stories of boredom and annoyance

Yeah, my WoW career isn’t what I’d like it to be. Can’t get around to doing anything basically. Haven’t been to Karazhan in weeks. Have done 1 heroic in a month.

The thing is, there’s a whole lot of tanks in the guild. And only a few healers. And somehow, I’m always the last to get a group to go somewhere, if I manage to find someone to come with in the first place. And then I wind up with 3 tanks, a dps without crowd control and no healer. Basically, useless. Yeah, I know, what do you expect on a RP server with a lousy Horde population? But what choice do I have? Should have transferred a long time ago, when I didn’t have a real connection to the server. And well, I should have rolled Alliance. Not cause I wanna be Alliance, but cause everyone I know outside of this server is freaking Alliance! Bastards 😉

Anyway. This week I’m going to Karazhan again. Guild managed to down Illhoof twice, Terestrian’s Stranglestaff dropped twice. Guess who wasn’t there both times? Yeah. Me. Ah well, let’s hope we’ll down him again this weekend and let’s hope that friggin staff drops again! And I hope Gloves of Dexterous Manipulation drop off Attumen the Huntsman. Would be a nice upgrade! Else the T4 gloves from Curator would be nice too 😉

Oh, by the way, finally got Ace of Furies yesterday! Meaning, I can pick up my Darkmoon Card: Vengeance when Darkmoon Faire is in town again 😉

I sure hope things go a bit better soon. My personal life is a mess, if WoW can’t even distract me anymore, I’m gonna get a bit of a problem, I think. Just being bored in Orgrimmar won’t help. And people wanting me to tank Heroic instances on weekdays at 23:30… guys, some people have to work for a living! Ask me a couple of hours earlier dammit!

Karazhan horror-story

Yesterday was going to be our first Karazhan guildrun. So, for my gear I finally got a group with me to run Old Hillsbrad for my ring. And it finally dropped! Got asked to tank SL a bit, smacked down Murmur for he first time. Then, I was asked to help out a group in The Black Morass. They had been wiping there and the tank left. Sure, we needed him in Kara, so he needed to get attuned. Well, was pretty easy. Then, our offhealer came on, he needed BM too. So… another BM run right after. Peachy. BM is so easy with a decent group. Total retard-check, and most PUG’s are retards, apparently. A good healer that doesn’t OOM on the second boss and decent DPS that actually DPS’es the second boss, and everything should be fine. Second run also got me a new cloak. Burnoose of Shifting Ages. Not as good as the Thoriumweave one, but much better then my previous one! So, all ready for Kara….

…but then I came back online after dinner. Group invite. Fighting in raid chat. 9 people, 10 needed, 8 people asking for a non-guildie, 1 GM refusing. GM leaves guild. She returns. Puts the whole thing to a vote, with stupid choices. Well, I picked choice no 1. Leave the guild. 15 minutes after I left, I heard the guild had been disbanded. Well, maybe for the best. Old GM is probably transferring to another realm. Bunch of old guildies formed a new guild with a new GM. Got asked to join, but I had already applied for Furr Balls.

We’ll see how things go.

Kara, here I come!

Yeah, finally Karazhan attuned!

Took me 2 weeks to get Black Morass completed! PUG’s suck. Healers leaving after 1 wipe. Terrible. But, third run in 2 weeks, we finally managed to defend Medivh successfully. So I got to talk to him and got The Master’s Key! And, Sun-Gilded Shouldercaps dropped from Chrono Lord Deja. Butt-ugly, but they serve their purpose.

So, next… SV runs, to get exalted with Cenarion Expedition and get Earthwarden. And run The Mechanar a couple of times to get Thoriumweave Cloak from the first boss. I’d rather just farm that first boss for a bit till it drops, but no way I’l find a group for that. Same goes for Lieutenant Drake in Old Hillsbrad Foothills. He drops Iron Band of the Unbreakable. Again, first boss 🙁

Terrible weekend…

Suckiest weekend in a long time.

Woke up saterday morning with a migraine. Had to stay in bed till early in the afternoon. After that, spent all day on the couch, watching Naruto. Too much of a headache to play WoW, or even watch the screen. That pretty much sucked like hell. Wanted to do Black Morass, but when I finally felt good enough to play, at about 21:00, half the guild was already there. Seems to happen to me all the time. When I want to go somewhere, people are already there. And then they don’t want to go there for a couple of days. Great.

Sunday, Mechanar. Lousy run. Annoying group. Know-it-alls who didn’t know all that much. Wipes. And the 1 item I went for, didn’t drop. Nah, can’t say I have a lot of luck… ever. And I really really don’t like Mecha (or Bota for that matter), I really don’t want to go there again, but I need that drop, but I’m not interested in going futher then the first boss. No chance on that happening though, I’ll have to go all the way and it will probably take me months to get that drop. I’ll never be able to find a group to just help me.

Then, at 18:00 or something, I was asked to go to Shadow Labs. Didn’t feel like it, but went anyway. Did say I wouldn’t stay longer then 2 hours, since I was hungry. 3 hours later, we were still in there, at the third boss. Terrible group. Nothing worked. My tanking sucked, all the CC sucked, healing wasn’t enough… just everything sucked. And since I hadn’t eaten much all day, I wanted to leave. So I got bitched at for “leaving when at one wipe”. WTF? More like 10 wipes, we had been there for over 3 hours. I said I wouldn’t stay that long in the first place, so take someone else to start with if you don’t like that! For gods sake, I keep doing other people favors and I keep getting bitched at.

I’m seriously losing interest in playing WoW. I love WoW, but I’m starting to dislike the community. Maybe it’s just this server, but it’s just a pain. I want to play for my own fun, but that’s impossible without other people. And somehow other people manage to get help in their selfishness and I always end up helping others and not getting any help myself. It sucks. And I’m sick of it.
