    Man I had one of the nicest random heroic runs last night, mainly because it was full of relatively new 80s (everyone but me had less than 210 avg ilvl and the two of 'em less than 200 avg ilvl got the dungeon achievement at the end) so people were chatty and considerate of each other. Couple that with them doing proper dps for their gear level (just under 2k for all of 'em) and I was okay with the run being slightly slower than normal.

    Hate: Arcane mages that do 7000 dps but their damage done is below tanks.

    What, how does this work? Do they do 30 seconds of damage and then go afk for a while?

    (Although, our mages are at least 15k or something high like that for the first 30 seconds-ish.)

    I found out he had over 1100 haste or so.

    He gemmed nothing but haste. So he'd do dps for about 4 seconds, I guess.

    Hate: A tank in a random kept pausing a couple minutes between every freaking pull (literally the heroic took at least 10 minutes too long). I called him on it, and he said, "guild business". I told him to take care of guild business on his own time. He gave me the, "it's my 15 bucks line."

    I thought about it, but it was my only chance at getting emblems of frost that day, so I just dropped the issue. He actually stopped pausing before pulls after that so I think I may have actually got through to him despite his reply.

    That sounds like too much haste to gem for straight haste on, but arcane mages do seem to really really like haste a lot.

    Amuzed, but guilty: Healing CoT on my druid and a hunter dings 80. We all do our "gratz" thing and keep going. I forgot I didn't turn off my rankwatch on my druid and it kept spamming all this stuff to the poor guy. Took me about 5 min before I could find the command to turn it off.

    Yeah, not really anything wrong with having 1100 haste rating.

    I'm tempted to switch *one* of my gems to get a little more haste since I think I'm capped out at 997 with no readily available upgrades available to me without raiding. And I'd like to have over 1000 haste. So he was doing something wrong.

    When I do 9.1k DPS on Sjonner in H HoS, I'm also at like 45% of the damage done. (yes we had Bloodlust. Mmm, haste.)

    Happy: WG win last night with 5 stacks of Tenacity. They stomped on our face pretty hard at the start, got overconfident, then went out and zerged the towers. Me and 4 others get back to the siege factory, clear the the leftover 10 or so alliance w/ tenacity-fueled explosions(19k lava burst *glee!*), grab 2 siege engines, break 2 walls and a door before they had any idea what just happened.

    Hate: After ensuring my hero status with said act, I get booted from the VoA 25 right before toravon pull by the raid leader, who is also a shaman, because "we full on sham". Total shamans in the raid? 1.

    That's why I tell any DPS warriors that want to join my VoA pugs, "Fair warning, I am gonna ninja the hell out of any prot warrior t10 that drops." They join anyway, because I get props for being honest, and because we all know VoA doesn't drop warrior gear :P

    Happy: GM gave me the go ahead to remove certain people from the raid because they refuse to gem and enchant their gear. Silly geese. And they're doing it wrong when they do. He also refused to listen to us on how to gem. He listened but didn't pay attention (we specifically mentioned ArP is probably what he should be gemming for at his gear level... and he puts +16 str in).

    Happy: The melee dps I pulled in to replace him pull 8k.

    Happy: Well, well well, we got putricide10 down on the first attempt without even breaking a sweat.

    That melee dps is wearing non-epic gems and is in toc10 gear, that druid is probably the 15th or so best geared feral druid on the server... pulling a whopping 2.5k. I was pulling more than that. I mean, the druid pulls like 8k when he's doing patchwerk (olol) but anything that requires movement or not having your horse blinders on he struggles.

    He also mentions to us constantly that he gets up at 4:00am and that the raids are too late for him, but threw a hissy fit when we moved him to the weekend team. Well, guess you don't get to raid anymore, ever.

    Indeed he has. That was pretty fast.

    Edit:

    I guess it was too much to ask him to run some heroics or do some dailies to get enough gold for 13 epic gems. (this number may be greater now that he replaced some of his epic ArP gems with blue quality +str gems)

    Just wow.... it's a crime to be in raid and not atleast make an attempt to put epic gems in ilvl 264 gear... let alone enchants. Don't matter if your bleeding edge server first raiders, I mean my alts get gemmed and enchanted when they get epics and sometimes I don't play them for weeks at a time!

    We gave him 3 weeks to get enchanted and gemmed up and pick up his dps.

    He managed to do 8k on saurfang one night, and 5k on festergut continously, but 2.5-3k when everyone else was doing 6+ and then bitch to the GM and raid leader when they ask you to do at least 4 on a raid boss is pretty asinine.

    We even had to tell one of our officers not to give him 15(!) epic gems, because he so clearly did not care about raiding after 3 weeks.

    Oh well. I just wanted to show you guys some of the silly geese we deal with. It's good that I've been given liberty to tell these people to get bent now.

    Also, it's nice to kill festergut in 3.25 minutes.

    I dunno what i did, but i got the achievement Back Door Job... while there was 30 people online in the guild, while they were raiding ICC (on a too boss i think).

    Oh god the comments that flooded guild chat!

    Hate: Cyclone Battlegroup alliance and the sudden out break of restro druids with almost 40k hp (on horde) in BGs. I need to get smoky's lighter to burn down the BG forrest....

    You know something is up when your level 26 shaman waits in a dungeon queue for less time than your 80 priest. Consistently. Sometimes to dps.

    Not necessarily a bad thing though, as the dungeon queue at low levels is really awesome when you're sick to death of heroics over and over again.
