Reflections on 3.02

Good day

Long time no new blog:P

Guild news:

The night before 3.02 went live we had 12 players leave MK to start a guild of their own...when that happened we put our action plan in place and removed other members who we felt were bad for morale in the guild.

When we did that..I took the brunt of the hate..which is fine...hate me all you want..but when 80%+ of the members think your an asshat and want you out..and you had treated other members like garbage untill they gquit in the was the right move.

As a follow up to that..the 12 that left all rejoined a few days later LOL


Is an awesome patch for the casual's in gives us all the chance to see the content that had eluded us and actually forced us to call off raiding.

Since the patch we have cleared Za on under geared alts..mains and generally been farming gear:)

My mage:
For pvp I really like the burst of arcane..pve in ZA wasnt that great
the new fire spec isnt bad..1200dps in Za overall and 1500 on bosses except Zuljin
Going to try Frost in Za next reset

Demon spec blows..was cool for 2 mins then bleh
Affliction isnt bad
Have not done destro yet

My pali...oh my pali
Solo tanked all of the new changes..ot'd Za
Going to Mt Hyjal fun

We should have vash/kael and Hyjal cleared before the xp drops which is awesome:)

Honors and his merry band from Dominion cleared BT..Grats to you!

Dottie has taken her 3rd alt..a mage into a dps monster..way to go!!!

New post ftw


It has been an eventful couple of weeks since I last blogged..

We downed leo..woot Grats to all:)

We lost our Pali tank to Dominion..I wont go in to a longwinded rant about it except to say that he is gone and we shall progress on ward.

Now his leaving caused some anger in the guild ranks and even though he got the ok from our GM to keep his alts in..they were removed by an officer with the support of other officers..which then led to his Irl friend going on a 15 min rant @ said officer...which I give him credit for not booting him on the spot..

But after hearing about it..I booted him..I will always support my fellow officers..esp since I woulda booted him 5 mins in to his ranting at me lol
He thinks it was bs that I booted him..I dont care..nuff said

Tonight I have the pleasure of going to Za with Sgt and Cryaks grp..They say full clear so I am pumped about it!!

Last night we went and 2 shot alar..showing that we are still a raiding guild..we had 6-8 people there whom had never done the fight and had a 3% wipe on the first try..nicely done MK!!

Then we went and wiped 3 times on solarian and called it a night..3 new people..all blew up the raid lol

Back to raiding

We are indeed back at it:)

Sunday we went and did the 4 bosses we have on went well..1 shot Lurker, Hydross and we might as well call Tidewalker a 1 shot..only because I knew Lan was going to die lol..But Tommy did awesome on the real attempt:)
FLK was a little rough..but we got him..Grats to Ted for MT'ing him:)

The hunter that wiped us 3 times on Solarian was not invited LOL

Today is reset day..

Leo here we come..Skipping: Hydross/ we will do Tidewalker, FLK and then Leo...sure we could do the first 2..but no one ever bids on the items when we do gruul/mag later on we can take a non core grp to see those bosses:)

I know only like 3-5 people a day read this..So Hai to you:)

WTF a new post lol

Some Drama the past week..

Bloodsky stole our raiding ret pally..seen that from 100 miles away when he ended up on their 3v3 team...the only bad part about it was he called us bad in his ap to them..It did make me LOL irl because that guy dies more than I do on trash in 25 mans..

Lontra one of our Locks..and a transfer pitched a fit about us being in the black temple instead of doing farm bosses..Farm bosses are boring as all heck and no one in the raids were spending any mkp for the lol at farm..I do farm for badges and gold:P

Well..he Gquit after getting in to a spat with Trey:P

So after much thought..we did a set schedule for raids..we started with TK last night and had a mellow night of screwing around we killed wasnt the A team but we had least I did:)

We are relearning VR Saturday night..and A'lar..its 2x mkp when we kill VR..incentive

I broke 10k gold..and stopped farming back down to 9k again..respecs and buying junk lol

Dottie and I should be getting our alts their epics this weekend and maybe Ill get Drew one too:)

See you all Saturday for VR orb avoiding fun:)

Chaos ..Err..Farm night..err WTF?

Tuesday is reset day as everyone knows..

I thought the plan was to hit SSC and go for FLK after Hydross/Lurker and Tidewalker..But I was wrong

That caused a few issues as most of the core was at SSC when we were being told it was gruul/mag/then ssc..well WTF..everytime I set something up it gets taken over and people get mad..well I was one of the people pissed last night because we are supposed to be going to SSC not farting around with Mag/Gruul..we can do that on the weekend when we can gear up the non raiders or Hell..let them start there own 25 man and leave us out of it...ok almost done ranting:P

We all protest about Gruul and we say ok to Mag..then we wtfwipe 3 times because of real bad luck..DC's and early clicks and a flame patch on a cube that killed the clicker..So we say fuck this and head to SSC..Then the real trouble starts...

I am one of the last people reinvited to the raid for SSC..when I get in its almost full except for the 2 tanks..but there is major problems with ur set up..WHERE THE HELL ARE THE GOOD PLAYERS FROM THE OTHER RAID?

I was fucking pissed that Rob wasnt in the group..Like REALLY PISSED!!! he just transfers back because he couldnt raid with his other guild and then gets WTFPWN'D from the raid he was just in?
After bitching my face off I tell the leader that im stepping for him..except he has DC'd and isnt online..
Rob..that will NEVER happen to you again or ima random boot someone from the raid to get your spot back.

Lisa is an awesome lady and runs the guild well..she just doesnt like to piss people off..well thats my job and I do it quite well..There will be some unhappy people Thursday and I dont give a shit lol

We did end up getting Hydross/Lurker and Tidewalker down..even though we were all dead..yes a wipe with a boss kill:P

Grats to Scott on now being the little gnome mage of death with his new shoulders from Tidewalker

Last pc of Business for todays Blog..

Tom..You have Class officer sitting here waiting for you..yes we voted you in even though you havent come back yet:P
Plus you are our now best geared tank..hello MT'ing with Ted lol

Im f'ing tired

Look Friday for Leo and FLK kills

Friday, April 4, 2008

Opps LOL

So last night we rolled in to SSC to do Tidewalker and Leo..

What we ended up with was 1.5 hours of WoW gremlins lol
Our MT for Tidewalker on 3 attempts had the same problem..his bear wouldnt attack..only auto that and a double DC from our MT and our Murlock tank = fun and frovility lol
so we got everything fixed and had Blankz attack Tidewalker twice to make sure it did and boom Tidewalker was dead and I got my mage trinket:)

So..we go to do Leo ...

I port my mage back to shat and jump on my lock..wait 15-20 mins to get an invite and a summon while they are clearing trash to Leo..

Turns out we made a wrong turn at Albuquerque and ended up at Fathom Lord LOL I LOL IRL at that..but what ever..we are MK and decide to try him..
We spent 30 mins while everyone read up and watched videos..I contemplated how to get my mage there and off my fire resist lock lol

We did 2 attemps before we called it for the night..It was fun..we are going back tonight to kill him...when it isnt 1230 in the morning and all our est coasters arent falling a sleep lol

Tonight..aiming for 5/6 SSC FTW!!!

The Angry Mage

From this moment on..

I will be incharge of raid invites...the way it was before

I do not care if I anger players because they cant come...but for the umpteenth time we took folks who have no business being in SSC and the result was 2 wipes and a 10 min 39 sec kill..thats right 39 secs in to enrage on a boss that we usually kill with 2.5 to 3 mins left on the timer:(

What we need is Raydz to transfer back...he can mt and ot with Brindall/Honors and he was at all but one of our progression kills ...WTB Tom back!!!

The other problem...

Why do all our Druids think they are Dottie now? like wtf is that about..our boomkins are resto and one of our drudad tanks Bandarno went resto...I mean come on there is only one Dottie..just like there can only be one Ted and one Drew

So back to Rob the raid leader:(

On a brighter note..Dottie spent some arena points and honor on both Celoria and Super...we ran AB last night and it now takes 4-5 on her at once to kill her on Celoria..cant wait for 2v2 Monday..its going to be crazy lol

Grats to you my dear:)

I am setting up TK solarian attempt for Friday night..if people no show after signing up..ima gkick them

/end blog lol

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Been a while....

Good day all..

Sorry for the long delay on updating the blog:P

Since I last posted..

Tidewalker is Dead (I attended with a fever of 102 and stayed till he died lol)

Doomwalker is Dead...we tried him Sunday but after a 4% wipe we had the horde attacking our healers on the 2nd try..mark of death sucks imo..instant death with in 50 yards of Doomwalker if he kills lasts 15 mins:P

Monday night I threw together a raid that was 32 strong lol..and only 8 healers..they say 16 healers for a 40 man try..we one shot him ..easy easy:P

I went on my lock because of the the dots
And my lock was #2 on the dps charts LAWL lol

I recruited 5 new members..all who are geared and want to raid..and we added a rogue from another server..attendence shouldnt be an issue..Esp if Tom transfers his ass back..I think some folks quit logging in because he was gone:(

SSC tuesday and TK friday this week..Doomwalker Sunday and Gruul/mag monday..tis the plan:)

Progression is FTW!!!

As many of you know…or may not know I play a mage on the medium population server of “Altar of Storms” a PVP realm that isn’t very far progressed…we have one guild clearing the Black temple and another one about half way through and a 3rd about to hit the temple very soon

The guild I am in….”Mal Katai” is more like a small dysfunctional happy family than a guild lol:P A few weeks ago they made me Lt commander as the regular Lt is tied up in School for the next while:P

People call us a “Casual guild” but that has changed to “Casual raiding Guild” which is awesome….when we do raid (2-3 nights a week) it is done with a hard core approach and it has netted us 3 progression kills in the month of January….awesome imo

Tonight we embark on another first for our family…Morogrim Tidewalker
It should be fun fun

On a side note..

One of our core ot’s and his irl friends transferred servers to a more progressed guild/server….that blows…..I already miss Tom, he was truly a nice guy and great player….I did not know his 2 friends that kinda put a gun to his head and made him transfer…but I hope that he isn’t to sad about us killing Lurker the same day he left….

Take care Tom….You big smelly hooker l o l

Save the Drama for your Momma

It all started on Saturday night…

A long-term guildie did something he should not have done…at least with out asking first (not asking me...but Lisa should have been asked) and when the other Officers asked about it we were pretty much dismissed and insulted, I can ignore some minor crap so I did and went about my evening, a little later on said guildie brought up the subject again…this time 2 other Officers got involved in the discussion/argument ended with said guildie calling us names and being generally disrespectful.

Sunday morning came and while I was getting ready to go to work one of the other Officers decided to tell me something that did not make me happy, I responded in-kind with a smart ass remark “should we bake him cookies too?”

I then made a board for the fellow Officers expressing my anger and frustration with having someone who doesn’t do anything to help run things telling those that do pull there wait that there are wrong and calling us names to boot:P

Said guildie then proceeds to attack my integrity and even called me incompetent lol
When I log in after work it just grows and grows, I demote all my alts so they cant see o chat , for the sole purpose of not gkicking said guildie, I log on to my main and request it get demoted as well, that causes a crap satorm that I stayed out of for as long as I could…

Then it had to be done…he attacked me again and again …I had taken enough guff from a 15 yr old… “#$%$# has been kicked out of the guild by Raistilan”

I then booted all his alts out as well…

Then one by one….his “clique” g quit

The only one that hurt the guild was another Officer leaving

We will survive…I think we are better off

At least we wont have to listen to him swallowing his mic in vent anymore…or his constant babbling during raids

Now recruiting Warlocks LOL

Friday night raids

Good day all:)

So..We went back to SSC last night..and WTF PWNED Hydross..1 shot ftw!!

After waiting 1.25 hours to get 25 people:P

I will be pushing the guild to add more healers..another resto druid for sure to help take the stress from Dottie..although she IS THE BEST RESTO ON THE SERVER!!!

We took a resto shammy last gear and all...and he did very well imo..Grats Zach:)..he even got an epic totem from the trash:)

Clark got the epic tanking staff from the trash as well:)

The only problem that I have with our Lurker attempts is that we did not use our maint tank..Ted the tankadin..this isnt to say that Lan did poorly..just Ted is our MT and this will be fixed asap or we move to a different boss..our mele pulled from Lan on every try..that doesnt happen with Ted.

It was a fun night ..everyone had fun..Ted got a great upgrade for him to spend his MKP on..Grats earned it:)

World boss today..or mag..or back to lurker..but either way..our little guild has another farm boss:)

HKM/Gruul/Mag/Hydross ...all free loots now imo:)

See you ingame..
Dont let your meat loaf:P

Hydross the unliving

Thats right kiddies..

Our first night on Hydross and we killed him..thats night...on the 9th attempt:)

Grats to our team!!! you guys/gals OWN!!!!

There is some bad news though...8 wipes was too many lol..should have been attempt# 4-5 at the most..why did we wipe?...simple...shadow word pain...thats right..a dot kept wiping us:(

except for one wipe was a hot:P

And our favorite dps whore Aerlions wand on #8 lol

I got a new robe (rolled a 100 /owned:P)...which I think will now allow me to leave my spellfire set in the bank..woot!

Tried 2/48/11 fire for this raid..bad idea:P...was pushing 700+ dps but with all the aoe I had to do..mana was an issue ftl:P

I am still pumped about the kill:)

I spent tonnes o gold for the raid...6 primal life/7 primal water/ 6 primal fire..and some other odds and ends..well worth it:)

400+>Boss kill on the first night:)

One last try

That was it last night..

We had one last shot at Magtheridon last night before we called it for the was after 2am server time..10+ goes at being 27%..that in it self would have a been a "good" night for a new boss...


Can we just give it just one last try?

Everyone reached deep into their souls to answer yes...YES WE CAN!!!

After a night of mom jokes...some back luck...some swearing in vent when something went "cuppy cakes" being played in vent..

Or team sucked it up and pushed our guild out of T4 content and in to the world of T5 and SSC/The Eye..woot!!

Grats to Dan and Lisa who got their T4 chest, Celoria who got the Head of Gruul..Barasi who recieved Mags Eye..Sneakyfeet whom won an epic with a 3..LOL man you did a fantastic job of tanking Mag like a champ!!!
Everyone did a fantastic job...I am so happy for our guild right has ushered in a new era..we are not a Kara guild any longer..we are a SSC guild now!!!!

Some of the fights in our near future will be:
Hydros, Lurker and A'lar and VR..We have put attempts in on VR and Lurker..but nothing like our team did last bitching..just attempts..some folks had to go...we had their subs in before anyone got ancy..

All in all..UBER!!!

Put your game face back

Greetings all:)

I hope you had a good holiday and spent lots of time with your loved ones..or people you like at the very least lol

I was having a great holiday season untill boxing day when after getting my Alt Lock to 69.5 came down with a wicked sinus infection that knocked me out untill Dec 30th:P (and even that wasnt untill evening:P)
But Me Dottie, trey and Brian all have another 70 now..woot and grats to all:)

I need to gear up my we ran Kara this week..I managed to get Moroes back piece, boots from opera and a neck piece from Prince..not bad but next week I will put my lock in another group and take my main with Dotties Sp and Treys healbot so that we can gear out Dottie:)

Tonight marks the start of a progression run that hopefully will see the end of Mag..which if he doesnt die tonight we are going to keep going at him untill he is hopefully it is tonight..then we can maybe hit up Lurker Saturday night...Ideally mag tonight..then starting tuesday net week we can do:
HKM/Gruul/Mag all in one night..then Friday/Sat in SSC..progression raids suck for those who dont like to die..but I play a mage who dies all the time and I will die all night for a month to finally kill a new boss:)

We have the best tank's on the server as far as attitude and drive to progress..Ted, Tom, Drew, Trey in Bear..all will die for the cause..(Reid you arent on the list because I dont know if your coming:P)..I am sure Bloodsky may have better geared tanks..but they should rename their guild BloodDS because all their real good players came from elsewhere:P

I will all my guildies the best of luck tonight and lets give hellfire the 10% buff!!!
