For the Horde?
I’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.
