So it’s been a little while since I posted on here. It has been a very eventful couple of weeks and I simply did not have the time or motivation. It’s hard when you run out of interesting things to actually write about. Fortunately I found something!

After withdrawing from my previous guild and also the new guild I had joined I am falling back on my friend’s guild. They have decided to try running their own guild and raid team so I figured I would help. I have lost quite a bit of motivation to raid with all of the problems that were arising. Hopefully after I get a bit of a break to catch up on my personal affairs everything will go back to normal. I am excited to get to raid on a different class though! I spent so much of my time in Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria on my Priest so it’s about time to shake things up. 

My new flavor to raid is a Monk! I know, I know, everyone is trying to do the Monk thing these days. I have gotten some first hand tips from other Monk Healers (Mistweaver) and Monk Tanks (Brewmaster) so I am confident in my ability to do both. Although since I just recently switched from Windwalker to Brewmaster there are still some weird gear holes. I am really loving Brewmaster though, I am not really much of a Tank but it is so much fun. If anyone has any tips on either feel free to share! 

Also – I’m going to share a bit of information that I have kept incognito since I started this Real ID! Go check out the “First Time? Read Me!” at the bottom of this blog. 🙂



Get Your Raid Face On

Once again I come to you with a raiding problem. As usual, there is someone just not showing the potential to raid. Though my guild is a casual raiding guild and we try our best to work with everyone there are some things we just cannot do. When someone comes to us and says “I want to raid” we will try to fit them in somewhere. Now if you raid, casually or hard core, you know that it still takes some work to get yourself “Raid Ready”. If you aren’t willing to put in the work in LFR’s or grinding the Valor Points to get some gear then you might as well forget about raiding. We had a member that seemed very excited to join our second raid team (which just started recently). They asked about what character they could bring and what roles were needed and we thought they were genuine. Thought obviously being the key word here, because we were very wrong. They ended up ignoring all of the advice we had given them and suggestions we made about how to further learn and gear their class. I personally hate it when people ask for help and then completely ignore everything you told them. Instead they wanted to joke around and not show up for raids. We have a high level of tolerance for missing raids if there are issue outside of the game. People have jobs and a life outside, we completely understand that. BUT if you can’t take a moment to let someone know then you are showing that you do not care. Now if there was some emergency we cannot be upset but there are fine lines. For obvious reasons I am not going to go into much detail for this one. I just wanted to share my level of frustration with the interwebs. 

Another update for all the people that probably don’t care anyway ;D the Pandaren Mage is now up to level 85 and starting Mists of Pandaria content.Image
