Happy Valentine's Day!

This morning there was a gorgeous bouquet of red flowers on my table, and underneath it stood a little package. Inside it I found a new pandora bead. This one:

It's my second charm where part of the money paid for them goes to a good cause. This one is for the fund of Asthma, and the previous one Thror got me went to the association that trains guide dogs for blind people.

So yes, my valentine's day started well. How about yours?

Everybody is Responsible

Heroics are getting easier and last week I've already had two dps in the group who were doing stupid stuff. Standing in just about everything, or absent-mindedly breaking CC. When asked I got the replies that they were not paying attention, or watching television.

And you know what?


If everybody does their job the heroic is fun for everyone in there. Stuff is CCed in our group, not because I cannot heal through it, but because it makes everything go a lot smoother. I don't have to drink as often, and I don't have to stress out over healing. The healer, the tank, the dps all have a much more relaxed time if everybody carries their weight and simply does their job. 

If one person starts slacking off, the healer has to pull more tricks and has to drink more often. The tank has to be a lot more vigilant on where threat lies, and the dps themselves risk to get a close-up of the floor. 

And you know what?

If you end up in my group and you start screwing up because you're not paying attention, or because you're watching television, or doing other stuff you should not be doing....expect to be kicked. I generally bring a guild tank and a guild dps so we're with three of us, and you will get kicked. 

Don't be that idiot and you'll probably have the smoothest run you've had all week, with chain pulls, at least 1 dps above 16K and a healer and tank who have now been working together for almost 4 years.

Goodbye Righteous Orbs

I've been horribly behind in my reader (even though I don't even read that many blogs anymore), but when I finally caught up yesterday I read that Tam and Chas from Righteous Orbs have decided to stop blogging.

I read it yesterday, and yesterday it made me sad. I read it again with more attention today, and it still makes me sad. I think Righteous Orbs was a gem amongst the wow blogs. And not even because what was written there was always stuff I agreed with, but simply because I really, really enjoyed reading it. I've followed this blog since it Tam was still standing in the back with his sissy robes, and I will miss it, but I understand and respect the decision. Good luck Tam and Chas!

In the words of Bilbo Baggins (or close at least) "And they lived happily ever after... to the end of their days."
