Guest Post: Things I hate
Occasionally I try and prompt my guildies into posting something here, and today it actually worked. Thae has been with the guild in various forms for about three years now. He is pretty infamous for being cranky and telling people to die in a fire, and we love him for it.
Hello, my name is Thae, and if you look closely you’ll see a silent “Rockstar Shaman” in my name. I am currently a Resto Shaman (“Healy4Life” /gangsigns), healing face for Machiavellis Cat. I have been encouraged on numerous occasions to share something with the WoW community at large. A running joke in the guild is that I have a mythical list on which are the names of all the factions, items, instances that have double crossed poor Thae. And so I bring to you the following commentary:
Things I Hate, By Thae of Uldum
The Red Dragonflight is currently at number one. Why? Simple. Keristraza, a certain mace, a terrible voice, and thirteen runs through Nexus. I was lead to believe the mace would drop. Keristraza had other plans. And to add to that, Alexstraza is a bit of a flake. And Sartharion and his three underlings — what sort of male dragon simpers about protecting eggs? The Red Dragon flight is totally on my list.
Cooking vendors, all of them. They still will not hand over a recipe for a chocolate cake. How am I ever expected to become a proper Chef without it? I run their errands daily, I pick their horrid mushrooms, I push the Rhino population to the brink of extinction, and still, no cake.
Fish I believe everyone on Uldum, even those who have not done any fishing, have caught Old Ironjaw. I have not. This vexes me greatly. Therefore, fish are jerks, and jerks get added to The List.
Liore, the GM of Machiavellis Cat She runs a great guild that relies upon teamwork. I am not doted upon, given the first shot at loot, or considered the best healer ever. The guild was dumb before I arrived, and I am not thanked enough for bringing it forward to modern times.
The Oracles I’m up to my third egg now, and still no mount. The gall of these… things is incredible. I’ve appeased their Great Rain Stone. I’ve fought primordial elementals at their behest. I’ve slaughtered the Frenzyheart tribe enough times that Darfur looks down right peaceful. All I ask is a mount. It doesn’t seem like much.
There’s a post over at World of Matticus on A Healer’s Most Important Skill which is, apparently.. spam healing. Hmmm. Perhaps I’m missing something, but while there are times when pure raw output is important, I would have considered flexibility and situational awareness as being much more important than standing there hitting one button over and over and over.
