The Interwebs Dislike Me

So, there have been a series of events that have led to my conclusion that my internet is out to get me.

First, it was going randomly offline every few minutes, only staying up for less than a minute on average.

Second, once we got it working again, the antenna on the roof broke. No internet.

Third, when THAT was fixed, there were heaps of thunderstorms that somehow messed up my wireless internet.

So, now that there have been three, hopefully it will stay up.

Crappy Internets FTL

So, I felt I needed to give you all a semi-decent reason as to why it’s taking me so long to post. Ideally, I want to post each day. My crappy internet, however, simply LOL’d and said ‘not gonna happen!’

I’m currently testing a new wireless internet system that’s never been used in this area before. Basically, I get it for free, and I simply report every time it throws the towel in. Dumb thing does it every other day though, so I’m not too impressed with it.

But hey, free internet.

Today, little Lyrra ventured forth once more into the darkest of places in hope of bringing Light and justice to the oppressed, and swift vengance to the merciless scum that dwelt in such places.

In other words, I decided to try the LFD tool again.

Ah, LFD. Let me count the ways.

Firstly, you placed me into a beautiful Scarlet Monastry – Cathedral run. Beauty! I thought to myself. I know this place! This is awesome! But no, it was only to get my hopes up, wasn’t it? Because not only did the DPS decide I was ‘too slow’ and pulled ‘for me’, but then they swore at me when I didn’t taunt off them to let them die.

Secondly, our healer was very skilled, with great gear. But everytime she came under attack, she stopped healing me (the tank) to heal herself. I taunted off her within a few seconds, but until she was at 100% health, nobody else got any heals.

Thirdly, when we entered the actual cathedral part, there are mobs all down the sides, and the boss in the middle. Usually, once you clear the front, you head to the left and right of the platform before pulling Mograine. But no. As I ran to the right to continue clearing (and hoping the undead guy dropped my boots) I see the mage say in party chat: “Don’t pull the bo…” That is exactly what s/he typed. I then saw Mograine’s ohmigoshdidyouseriouslyjusthitmewtfnoob enter battle mode yell, and saw the mobs we hadn’t yet cleared run towards the kitty druid who had spent half the instance in bear form. Naturally it was a wipe.

But just to stick a little knife in and turn it, when I asked the stupid question, “Why did you pull the boss?” The answer I got? “i didnt pull u did”

WHAT?!  “I pulled the boss? From the other side of the room? And somehow MD’d him so he’d smack you in the face instead of me?”

“lol yes”

The mage said, “I’m sorry guys, but this isn’t going to work out.” And dropped group. I did the same.

It was no use trying to finish, not only because I wanted to choke the druid through the internets Vader style, but also because an early pull+wipe combo almost always bugs out Mograine.

Sometimes PuG groups amaze me, but other times they make me want to cry/scream/kill. Why druid? Why go bear form? If you wanted to tank, why queue as dps? Tank queues are a shitload faster. And rogue, why did you also pull things? You don’t even have a tank mode.

Maybe I just don’t get people =/

Dear You, Love Me

Dear Life-Tapping Warlock,

When I’m healing in a PuG and you bleed your mana bar dry, please, feel free to Life Tap. Because, as a bubby healadin, I have the spare mana and GCDs to fill you back up when you tap your life dangerously low. Wait….no. Bubby healadins don’t have spare mana or GCDs, especially not on a gosh darned boss fight where I am wildly flailing at my buttons in the hope that I can at least keep the goddamned TANK alive!

Somehow, we all lived through that nightmare. And, as all party members were mana-users, we all sat to drink. Some kindly folk even nommed some food to speed up the process, which I both noticed and greatly appreciated. But not you. Never you.

Because you think you’re too good to sit and eat-slash-drink with us? You think you’re above all that? Do you look at the slowly filling blue bar under my name and for some reason believe that it is your bitch?!

There is one small thing I will say: you are brilliant at picking up subtleties. After the tankadin had gone and pulled the next group you asked loudly in /p, “y no healz?”.

“You Life Tapped down to nothing and I was healing the tank. I assumed that you would eat/drink with the rest of us.” I replied, seething slightly that they would dare question my healing abilities!

“lol i wont healz nxt time k?”

….what? I was silent for several moments, just staring at the screen in horror, too shocked to even attempt a reply. Then, when I needed it the most, that beautiful Vote To Kick box lit up on my screen with your name on it. The reason given to kick you? “Full mana-wanding it”

WHAT THE HELL?! I opened Recount up, and lo and behold. Over 90% of your damage was via the wand. You wanted to Life Tap so that you could……wand?! How can anyone explain this? My fury was well past boiling at this point, so I allowed my temper to get the better of me, and clicked the KICK option. It passed and you left, being forcively removed from our group.

And I know that I wasn’t the only person angry at you, and your rude actions and comments throughout the instance. After you left, our tankadin said “Thank god he’s gone.”

“Wanker.” Our Shammie agreed. We all shared a lol, and decided to attempt to four man the final boss, especially since we now knew that we had been mostly carrying you for the entire dungeon. It went down without any hassle, especially since we didn’t have your minion taunting off the tank and promptly losing aggro to my holy crits of healy goodness. We thanked each other, and disbanded the group.

So, if you ever come across me in another group, be warned my dear warlock. For you are rude, inconsiderate, and yes, even though it is your $15 per month to play, that does not in any way give you the right to be a complete and utter tit to everyone you come across.

Yours sincerely,

Lyrra of Khaz’goroth. Healadin.
