For the Horde?

February 18, 2009 at 1:02 am 4 comments

forthehordeI’m working on a rather lengthy update to my Cliques Happen/Guild Drama series, but it’s draining.  So, in the meantime:

I did the For the Horde! achievement tonight with an awful trade channel PuG.  We got the job done, but … what a stupidly frustrating experience.  >.<

I am not kidding: the Raid Leader was 12 years-old and had to /afk for dinner in the middle of the Stormwind portion of the raid.  He was gone for a good 20 minutes.  When he came back to his computer and realized that we had killed Wyrnn without him (the PUG pretty much ignored him as RL when he commanded all of the mages to Pyroblast at the same time, because he “wanted to see what it looked like”), he totally freaked out on the raid.

He’s been spamming /trade ever since, trying to get a second group together to kill Wyrnn again.  Several people have tried to explain the concept of respawn timers to him, to no avail.

I kind of feel sorry for the kid, at this point.

On a related note, Tyrande hits like a … not girl, because we hit damn hard!  But she’s thoroughly unimpressive.  I tanked her for a while after the Death Knight tank went down, and a Shadow Priest eventually peeled her off of me and finished her off.

I also came in second on damage, and I had rezz sickness for the first half of the fight.  Really, it’s amazing we managed to kill one faction boss, let alone all four.

I did meet a nice Retadin, though.  He even thanked me (the raid’s sole warlock) for summoning everyone all over the world … unlike the other Ret, who fell off the boat to Darnassus and blamed me when he died to fatigue.  Because I didn’t summon him fast enough.  Clearly, my fault.

I hate world PvP.

    This update is probably the reason why I haven’t gotten the For the Horde achievement. Too much X-factor, with X being equal utterly complete idiocracy. Grats on making through despite the ‘tards.

    […] recieve (much like the 12 year-old Shaman who “led” last night’s For The Horde! debacle, come to think about it.  On his second attempt at the PvP-go-’round, he was only […]

    Thanks. 🙂

    It was frustrating, and the bear mount was a bit anticlimactic, but … eh. It gave me something to write about! Also, it made my bf /cry. Because he thinks he’s a Night Elf who “mastered the art of Tauren form” and– NOES! TYRANDE!!

    Totally worth it, for that alone.

    oh yes, clearly your fault … sometimes it’s really funny to see what fantasy the people can have in what is all the warlocks fault … lol!

    already have some experience with this archivement and pugs too, it’s mostly just annoying and i still don’t have it since we failed … i must have a bad way of selecting the pug groups x)
