Dara (who you may as Skip from a certain short story comment) writes the following, after much nudging from me, especially as I yet to this day don’t understand how Bear’s post of horror could be an inspiration for someone to join the circus that is LFR.
Here it is…
Some blog’s inspire you more than others, some inspire you to do something the author may not have intended.
After reading I Have Met the Asshat, and it is Dalra I said to myself
Dara, do LFR NOW.
Wasn’t hard, one button clicked and I was in a queue.
I do not enjoy the PVE side of World of Warcraft. I leveled my second toon to 85 purely on BG’s after level 34. (My second maxed toon, I tell you the party is still happening. Ok she is a priest too, but a Horde priest so that makes her different to Daraiste.) My knowledge of BG’s may just go beyond noob level now, you are welcome to join me in a BG to find out and after that I will lure you back with promises of improvement.
I very much doubt Bear’s post was intended to inspire someone who knew nothing of these raids to join, my logic was less than sound I admit.
Here it is:
If someone can play against the raids objectives for even 10 seconds before it was noticed then I might just get away with being there.
Please direct all “girl don’t you know how to use google, wowhead, blogs, your guild, your mates or your basic common sense and learn about such things before you do them” to Gnome, he likes reading.
In I went.
Did I know what I was doing? Hell no!
I struggled to keep up with what Deadly Boss Mods was telling me on more than one occasion.
Did I cause the raid to wipe? Not on that day.
I am not sure I have caused any wipes at all (well since I started using LFR), once healing was mentioned but that was by the tank who the rest of the raid though was clueless. I got a whisper that first day that went along the lines of
You should have said if you were new
followed by a quick
I wonder if he noticed me get the achieve later on.
I should mention I went in on full pvp gear.
I had so much fun, I still do LFR.
I have not given up on asking Gnome to join me, one day he may just say yes. I have some nice drops from doing them but I have something much better.
I have another part of WoW that I want to learn about, I go in with friends and get help and have a laugh. I have even recently started doing Arena’s. We won 6 before we lost on the first night. All of this because I saw the potential for getting away with something I would not have tried otherwise.
I guess I should finish this with…
Don’t try this at home, read up , get help or worst case scenario, wing it and grow.
Remember, there is a big difference between a Dalra and our Dara
Gnomer and Out (or as Dara likes to say, BB, BoB & CC… but that’s another story)
