Site back up and running.. complete with back ups this time.. we’ll see how it goes..
In good news, Dasie was promoted to Tactics Officer in guild. What does that mean exactly? Well it means that when I have something to say about a raid or a class or a group, maybe people will listen a bit more. I was asked if I wanted to be a recruitment officer, and declined. Anyone who knows me understands that I have very little patience, and have no desire to interact with people more then I really have to. Guild members are different most of them are wonderful. Raid Officers on the other hand, know their classes (and many others) inside and out. They know what needs to get done and by who. They understand the parses, and can see those and see where things are going wrong. It may seem odd since my guild is still a “casual raiding” guild to see all of this going on, but they’re eager to get beyond the simple KoS stuff we’ve been taking down and move on and progress in EoF (even if it is a little later now). I’ve played every healer class to 70 (except mystic) and I’ve raided with them all (except defiler). I suppose betraying was a good thing in that regard, I have raided as a fury, warden, templar, and inquisitor. I have a defiler who’s almost raid level but I doubt I’ll be playing her very often. Maybe on off nights I can sneak her into some pick up raids. I was leveling her up to be a MT defiler before I joined my current guild, and set her aside since she’s not needed.
GU36 went live yesterday, I’ll make a separate post about that once I get myself settled with this blog some. Yesterday was a DT raid, which just was… not what I wanted a raid to be. I mean, we didn’t die a *whole* lot, but come on, it’s DT. We should not be having any issues at all with the zone. We didn’t do the splitting drake, we in fact knew we wouldn’t be able to for once. We wiped on Tarinax twice. We did not attempt Cruor, which is a mob I miss doing. The encounter is not difficult, but it does take co-ordination, and there are actually at least 3 ways of killing the mob that I’ve personally done, each one worked, it depends on the guild. To be frank (and not intending to be rude here) The Inquisition just doesn’t have the discipline that’s needed to be able to co-ordinate encounters like that quite yet. Doesn’t mean they won’t get there, they will. But it’s going to take some time.
