Keeping up with my WoW-life.
Slow progress on the proposed guild merger. I spoke with the GL of a potential merge-partner. He seemed nice enough. Its a “casual raiding” guild, which is good. But I have some hesitation. What I was looking for from the GL was some indication that his guild could really use us – that our raiders were going to be a benefit to his guild. What I got was the typical puffery that goes with being a Guild Leader. No one likes to admit that their guild needs help. So he talked up his guild like they were in great shape.
He pointed out the fact that his guild has 80 level 70 toons. Its ironic that as he told me that fact, his guild was on hold for a Gruul’s raid because they couldn’t get 25 raiders online. I would have preferred if he had said “It will be great to have you guys on board. We’ll have a much easier time getting our 25 man raids together with a few more good players.”
I know for a fact that they have trouble coming up with 25 people every week and usually have to PuG a couple of raid spots. So boasting about their 80 level 70 toons is counterproductive. It makes me feel like my raiders are not needed and will not be valued, and that we might have an easier time getting raid spots elsewhere.
Also – their raid time is late. They start at 10PM server, which is 11PM local time for me. That’s fine on Friday and Saturday, which is when they typically run. But if they expand their raid schedule to any other day of the week I’ll be unable to go. All of my guild’s players are on the east coast of the U.S. so that will be late for everyone.
Also of concern – they don’t have a web site for their guild. That struck me as odd. I thought that was a necessity for any raiding guild. Should I be concerned? Are there a lot of guilds out there with no web site?
I said that I was going to try and PuG Kara. I never got around to trying it. I’ve been too busy doing daily quests for my epic mount fund. Also, I didn’t want to be saved to Kara in case our potential new guild wanted to try a get-to-know-you run.
Epic Flying Mount
In addition to the lucrative dailies, I have been flipping items on the Auction House. I have two epic items that I bought cheap and am trying to sell. Once they sell I’ll be able to buy the mount.
Badges of Justice
When I went to bed last night our server was at 96% on the anvil for the new badge vendor. I expect that it will be finished when I get home from work today. I have all of the mats to put a Mongoose enchant on my new dagger that I’ll be buying. That will leave me with about 10 badges – pretty far from either the ring or leggings that I would want.
