    We only have one computer in our condo, and one crappy laptop. Then again, if she did play, what if she sucked? Do i really want to teach someone how to play? What if she got addicted? Do I really want to buy her a decent laptop/computer?

    I'd rather go out and grab a beer with her than settle down onto a computer with her.

    My wife is my guild's holy paladin, and I'm one of the MTs, so it just goes well together. =) Plus we only raid 2 nights a week, so we don't get burned out.

    For me, these were choices she made for me. She got herself a decent machine to run WoW on. When she struggled on DPS she ripped through EJ threads till she found the secrets for success. In fact my roommate is largely dismayed that she now wrecks him on the meters.

    Also, neither of us are beer drinkers.

    No I just wash my hands from 25s and cutting my raid time to 2 nights a week (10) vs 4 nights a week...

    16 hours a week raiding... ug. Now it will be down to 8 hrs IF that... usually we finish 10s pretty quick now that everything is on farm mode, just cleaning up achievements like Herald of the Titians, and Earth, Wind, and Fire (that one gonna suck....)

    Hate: As soon as I chose to take the Deaths Choice I whispered the Combat Rogue, who is just behind me in loot priority, and said "Grats on the Hellscream, 'cause it's gunna drop now that you're beating me." Low and behold it did.

    Hate: Pugging normal ToC. My second time in ToC was last night, first time with a pug. We never made it past the damn champions. I was definitely way off my game, tanking on my DK, but I really don't think I was off by enough to cause these constant wipes. Killing the shaman took a long time(for all I know the hex on me wasn't being cleansed by the mage and was healing the shaman), and I guess I was just taking too much damage from the warrior and rogue for the pally healer to handle.

    For all I know the instance should be more than easy enough for this, but I wasn't entirely pleased that our warrior was dual-wielding a de-raged waraxe and the Halloween guitar axe, and our mage was 79 with quest gear.

    I doubt battle.net has much to do with it (other than using a merge to hijack it).

    I'm pretty sure most compromised accounts are due to key loggers and phishing scams.

    I hope you guys are ready for this.

    RRRRRRRRAAAAAGGGGGEEE: So our guild took on 9 new raiding members from a dead raiding guild. We were all told that they would have to compete for their spots and be treated as recruits (I've since achieved member status since my last bitching about the dick warrior class lead). They would have to fight for their raid spots with the members and other recruits.

    I did not have a good feeling about this.

    Tonight my feeling was justified. I am posting this because I am not in the H ToC raid. I suffered through 15 attempts on Twins last week, 11 or so on Beasts this week and tonight, I'm not even rewarded with a raid. The raid is full of people with 50% attendance, where mine is probably around 99.9% (I've missed 2 total raids since joining the guild in late July) and some of the new people.


    Continuing the rage, but not needed red is that we recently had two apps transfer server to us and neither one of them are raiding tonight in favor of the guild merge. That is completely unfair to those two people for paying money then getting dropped.

    This shit pisses me off because of the amount of effort I put into this guild. Yeah, I'm not lacking on loot, I'm pretty fucking decked these days, but I raid for the raid. I don't raid for the loot. The loot is the reward. I enjoy raiding because of what it is. Sitting here because of some new shit dicks pisses me off
    It's okay, I'm a Warrior. I can rage.

    The son is the father... May the spirits have mercy on those that stand in his way.

    Seriously though, ask someone who likes you in confidence why you weren't picked for the raid, if it turns out it was just because they're trying to gear up some of these new people there isn't much you can do really, but it'll be a good thing if you ever lose some members and have people ready to instantly step in.

    Hate: Can't find anyone to do the Amphitheatre quests with my Warrior, would really like a De-Raged for his 78-80 stint in AV.

    Hate, I guess: How has it taken me so long to level from 70-78 on what was my TBC main?! I have my Nexus and UK achievements from Wrath release day and my Gun'Drak achievement from 11 months later.

    You weren't taken to the raid because someone (someones) in a position of power to control invites doesn't like you on a personal level.

    Further, the others in a position of power to control invites don't like you enough to stand up for your position.

    we avoid this in my guild by having a "raider" rank which requires (2/3)% attendance over the past 4 weeks.

    when raid invites go out, raiders get priority on spots, followed by veterans (ppl who have been an active guild member for more than 6 months), then general members, and then recruits.

    we also have discussion among ourselves for swapping spots, and filling necessary roles (like if a recruit is the only tank online, he's getting in the raid)

    we also have 3 attendance points per raid: showing up on time, bring available during the raid (such as being on an alt, in vent, etc), and being there until the end (with lots of leniency here)

    i was honestly expecting bigger. i use SCT and by setting up custom events, i have it scream "IT'S HAMMERTIME!" in big red letters, with the hammer of wrath icon, whenever a mob goes below 20%.

    It was too long! I took it off a while ago and forgot.

    So the guild leader told me that he wanted to try out some of the new people tonight. I told him to take them on a fucking farm night then, because tonight is a progression night and I show up to every god damn progression night and now I miss out on the rewards of a successful progression night. And that pisses me the fuck off.
