I feel like someone decided it was time to crap on me. After being sick in late September, then going through some crap at work, this week continued the trend with a confusing break-up, and the cherry on top is being rear-ended yesterday.
Life has been less than generous to me, and as a result I haven’t really been in much of a mood to play WoW. And even when I do it’s been less than fun. Our guild generally was pretty drama free. But now there’s all this hidden tension between players because of raiding. We started raiding, but we don’t have enough for 25s, which is okay, our Vent only supports 15 right now anyways. So I set up some 10s and a really skilled member of our guild has been setting up ToC raids with other players and some guildies, it’s working great. At least, I thought it was. But because our usualy raid group only has 10 people there’s not enough room for everyone. We completed Naxx and went on to Ulduar. I’ve been trying to set up a second raid night with different people so that everyone gets a chance, but finding a time and someone to lead that group has been a challenge. Unfortunately, some of the more geared players who are currently doing 25-ToC have viewed the Naxx-10 and Ulduar as a waste of time. The trials of being a guild leader have me worn pretty thin at the moment with all my other stuff going on.
Of course there are the people now that are upset that they don’t get to come with on the raids. I’m trying as hard as I can to set up another group, but our shortage of willing tanks and healers again has us limited. Trying to merge this extremely casual guild into one with a casual raid schedule has been a challenge. Hopefully we’ll find a second time that will work and people will kinda start running it on their own. It seems like these things shouldn’t be that hard to figure out…but oy!
As for other news, I haven’t been playing much, but I did my first arena matches last Saturday. I had 0 resilience and died in every match. Our team name of “Kill Priest First Please” seems to work…because I died first every time. I’m still not sure what any of the arenas look like and I’m pretty sure for some time, until I get a PvP set I’ll be eating dirt. Like this:
So I have to give a shout out to the Jahafil and Karius for helping me and being patient with me. I’m sorry I’m such a failpriest at arena. 😛
