and other nonsense.
Squidly continues to shame Gnomeaggedon. Well, Gnomeaggedon is doing fine, beyond shaming himself.
Gnomeaggedon receives [Muradin's Spyglass].
Gnomeaggedon: Mmm I don’t need this, anyone want it?
2 hours pass
Gnomeaggedon: #%*# #%*# #%*#!!! damn that hourglass is now my top upgrade!
Tip: The optimize upgrades list in RAWR is based on current gear, so a single different piece of gear (say picking up your fourth T10 piece) can change the whole upgrade landscape.
Don’t be Gnome, regenerate your upgrade list before handing out BiS items to Offspec rolls!
Kashinboner is a great bloke.
Pretty much a full stop right there, but anyway, Kashinboner is a reader that dropped me an ingame whisper in WG a while back. Unlike most readers he keeps in regular contact, recently dragging me into a battleground after a night of constant loses to have his good luck Gnome present for a nice AB win. He has regularly asked if Squidly wanted to come to ICC, which until recently was out of the question gear wise.
We were chatting the other night as we each jumped in a ICC25 pug (separate pugs, just a coincidence).
My pug was struggling to to grab healers and had their heart set on a Tree.
Meanwhile the Raid Leader was constantly spamming raid chat telling us if we couldn’t stay in the raid till 2am, we should drop group now. It was about 10pm so that made some sense to me I guess.
Of course I wonder whether he was spending more time warning us about 2am than hunting for the missing players.
Ohhh advertising a raid that is filling fast when there are only 7 people in the raid and it takes over 30 minutes to fill… Isn’t filling fast.
The raid leader was doing a count back of the healers in the raid but missed me in his talley. Vein the sort of guy I am, I pointed out his omission.
Squidly: you also have Shaman heals.
RL: No offense, bit I don’t consider Shaman to be effective heals. A Tree is significantly better, as are Paladins and priests.
Finally, finally, we got not one but two Tree healers. All good by me… Less work for the lowest common denominator in healers (more…)
