So Ritual of Summoning is still broken? So what?

summonAdam Holisky over at WoW Insider actually broke out the Picard for this announcement, but I think it warrants a “meh” rather than the captain-of-all-facepalms.  I’m probably in the minority here, but I happen to like the two minute cooldown — thank you very much. 

Hearth out after a boss kill to pick up your brand new tier piece and demand a warlock summon back to Sapphiron’s lair?  Fall off the pipe between Grobbulus and Gluth and expect the warlock to pick you back up again?  /Afk after a wipe and wait in the Venomspite graveyard for the warlock to run back so you don’t have to? 


“Sorry, guys.  I’m on cooldown.  But I bet you could fly here in the time it takes for me to be able to summon again …”

    hehe it was kinda nice while it lasted. I had all kinds of guildies during our weekend Naxx 25 run wondering what was wrong with me when I told them it had a two minute cool daown and to take a number.

    People are still happlesly unaware it seems. I’ve been using the cooldown excuse for ages now on various things and it turns out that people love to comment on your gear/spec/gemming etc. most of them will still believe you when you say … oh I am sorry that’s on cooldown 😛

    Especially now with there being fewer warlocks around people believe all kinds of rubbish

    I LOVE IT! My new “summoning pebble” is a DEMON CLOSET. I’m sure the novelty will wear off soon and I’ll learn to loathe summoning the stragglers again, but until then … that omnomnomnom you hear is the sound of me eating my own words.

    @Daily – Yep, exactly!

    @Captain – lol! Demon closet or not, I think I’m going to try that from now on … at least for the complete randoms who whisper me while I’m in Naxxramas to request a “port” to Dalaran. /facepalm
