So, after some pretty heavy recruiting, we managed to get the last few spaces filled in what will hopefully be our core team for raiding.
As it stands though, I have 2 more people that need to start getting focused on their gear, with another 2 at just below the 460 point and the rest of us in full 463 gear.
Not too bad, however I had hoped that we would have been raiding by now. The plan is now hopeful for Wednesday and at that point, I will start recruiting over those not ready. It has been well and truly long enough for everyone to get geared and ready, if the GM can level an entirely new toon and be ready I will not believe that other people cannot do 5 levels and gear in the same amount of time. To me that shows a distinct lack of dedication to the progression focus we want to have.
I don’t want to be server first and beating other guilds etc, but I don’t want to be waiting around for months before we set foot in there either. I do want us to be ready so go in, do well and lay some smackdown. A friend GM from another guild was telling me about their attempts in MV and I was amazed – they have a raid tested and proven raid team and they are dealing with laziness, how in hell will we do. We have a largely untested raid team – all seemingly good players in heroics and in LFR – aside from me – so how will we go as a group.
This is one of the reasons I want to get in there ASAP, if people can’t handle it, I want to know sooner rather than later. I want to make sure we get the best group we can. I want to be like the Frosties (who i miss immensely) and be getting heroic final boss kills for mounts and achievements. I don’t want to be scraping for kills an xpac later.
Small things weighing on my mind huh ?!??
In other news though, the guild is a smidge off getting to level 25!! When I logged off last night it was 82% through level 24, so it may even happen today if we are lucky.
I have done no pet battles, in fact the idea of having to level my actual pets makes me want to cry. As far as I can tell, and I have been so focused on raiding plans I have ignored reading everything else, I have to move my pets to areas of the same level…but really…effort – not something I have at the moment with that 🙂
Dailies. Yes I have been Mrs Slack when it comes to those little buggers! I was diligent the first few days and did ALL of them, but now…I am just not even doing any – mainly because I am trying to get heroics happening to get people gear, and doing runs for people as well. I spent a couple of hours last night chasing the Lorewalkers thing instead of doing “important” dailies :p But I now have a cloud to fly around on!! I shall probably seriously start my dailies again this week. Maybe. … possibly.
I also got over my fear of starting a PUG group and organised one for Sha of Anger. Well really i just invited a bunch of people who then took over and I really couldn’t be bothered arguing. But hey, I started it instead of not…so kudos to me 🙂 I was a little mortified when they started booted everyone below 90 and abusing them for being moochers and they should be leveling instead of trying to get loot off raid bosses.
Sorry for the long post and no pictures 🙂 but wrap your arms around yourself and have a free hug from me – if you made it this far you deserve it!
You’ll be fine ❤
OMG GEN LEFT A COMMENT! /bows to the awesomeness of Dragonray
Well it looks like you’re out of your shell, bulldozing your way through my friend! I hope raiding goes well – I haven’t even started yet, so I haven’t even got any pearls of wisdom to impart…
We raided for the first time last night (had an amazing 36 people online…). We honestly didn’t do quite as well as I thought we were going to, but I still had a blast. I hope y’all have both fun and kick butt!
As for dailies, I’m weird and really enjoy them, but I missed a whole day’s worth the day before yesterday–just waaaaay too much going on. And now maintenance!
