We are going back into Gruul’s tonight. Since last week we have added a Kara/PvP geared holy priest and BM hunter to the guild and our partner guild has added a very well-geared prot warrior. So if we plug those pieces in to replace some of the undergeared players we brought last week I think we can get Gruul.
Magisters’ Terrace is a pain in the neck. Actually, a lot of it isn’t too bad, but the Priestess Delrissa fight is annoying. I have yet to try MgT on heroic simply because I hate that fight, and I can’t imagine how bad it is on heroic mode. People compare it to 5v5 PvP. I don’t do PvP so that doesn’t help me. But I really want the trinket that she drops. So I think a group of us are going to go in there on heroic mode and keep trying and trying (and repairing) and trying (and repairing) until we get her down.
After all of our debate over merging with a larger guild, we have settled into a guild alliance rather than a merge. Here’s a piece of irony – yesterday an even smaller guild merged with us. Yes, we are in the process of taking on a small group of players level 50-70. Most have little or no experience (even their guild master called it a noob guild). We’re not going to let this change our current alliance arrangement. But its funny anyway.
My lawn hasn’t been mowed in ages. I blame WoW.
Now that our alliance has settled down, we are going to start using a DKP system for 25-man content. It is very simple. You accumulate DKP for raid time and boss kills, with bonuses for alliance-first kills. Each piece of loot that drops has a set DKP cost. When an item drops, everyone indicates if they are interested. The one with the highest DKP total gets it, and the DKP cost of the item is subtracted from his balance. If there is a tie then it is a /roll. The best thing about this is that there is no bidding. I think that bidding can create animosity.
I’m thinking.. should I get a third computer and third WoW account in my house so that my daughter can play along with us? RIght now she shares my account. My biggest concern is that she will actually play as much as I do, which is too much, and detract from her social life and schoolwork.
