Well tonight was a funny night, jumped on to cruise with my 6 friends through whatever comes (Kara or ZA), but we had lost one (new Dad) to other commitments, so without realising it, each of us headed off on different “quests”.
I was bumming about, when I got a pst from my old Guild leader (Malleo). Now if you were to check out my guild history, you would probably shy away from inviting me to your guild – especially my recent guild history. I think I have been in 3 or 4 different guilds in the last few weeks. But I guess I should put that in perspective…
I used to be in a pretty big guild on Khaz’goroth, actually I was one of the guild leaders, in fact so were my friends (both on that server and guild leaders). But it did one of those internal combustion things (kind of like Mage with 2 charges of combustion letting loose on a newly tagged mob – disaster). So we, the leaders, moved servers with the intention of not being a part of the a guild, and more specifically guild leadership. Ok, enough digression..
So one day I join this pug SH run.. these folks are fun and great players… so we are all letting our hair down (If I remember right there were 2 puggers that run, myself and a warlock). The run was going so well, that Malleo asked us both to join up.
Anyway, as stated earlier, I had an aversion to joining a guild, mainly because I am committed to to mates and our Friday night runs… which generally are my only runs. Malleo was cool with my extreme-casual ways.. and I have had a great time in his very welcoming guild, with the very welcoming guild mates (I always seemed to score an invite to some big event.. things I never expected).
Anyway, I think Malleo has recently gotten tired of the pressures of the guild leadership bizzo, so moved on from his guild (handing it over nicely etc). He has moved a couple few times lately, and each time I log on, I get the “Hey Gnomi.. come and join xyz, they are great ppl”
And that’s what happened tonight.. I get this pst from Malleo asking if
a) I want to drop by Gruuls place for a feast, and
b) whether I want to join a new guild.
So tonight, totally out of the blue, I have downed Gruul, and joined Make Love Not Warcraft.
Now I know that for most people, the idea of floating about is considered, disloyal, but I must say that I genuinely feel a great sense of “family” within the guilds I have played with lately, but particular with my (ex)guild leader.. and must send a big thank you out there to Malleo for keeping me in the bigger family that exists on the server…
Must go and see if there is still something living in on Aman’thul that needs a bit of a beating…
Hope you all have a great Saturday.
Ohh.. how did I go on the dps? Mmm OK.. not as good as I have done in the past…
WWS tells me 6th overall (about 100k off top).. a few sill deaths on trash. 1st on HKM (though in-game I thought I was 2nd by about 5k), Gruul, way down at 7th, about 40k off top.. but I was being cautious, cause I have had some silly deaths in there on the last few occasions.
