So, I meant to post earlier but didn’t have a chance. We managed to get a guild group going in – ie 8 members of the same guild.
The reason this happened was because I got chatting to a lovely pally, who had a warrior tank he was going to bring. he asked his GL and decided to join our guild to help us out. I am not sure how long he will be with us, but his thoughtfulness and aid have given us a massive leg up in the guild achievements. Reyspada – you are a legend and thank you so much for what you have done. Also Serpentine and their GL Giga, you are awesome for letting us borrow Reyspada.
We had a couple of wipes on Ultrax, just silly things really people not watching things properly, then we got stumped by Spine. We kept getting close, but not enough you know.
All in all though, we smashed through everything, and for a guild that has never run together, with a tank (me) that was less than perfect and mildly geared but surpassed by Reyspada, we did very well.
The healing was amazing. Simply amazing. I have no idea if any of my ex-guildies read this blog, but I was always dying on my pally. Keeping me alive was a very hard thing to do. However last night, the healers kept me going without me being worried more than once or twice. They were generally because of my errors as well. This gives me hope.
We had a fantastic Shammy in the run Tauper, he was funny and was top DPS all night. Another awesome pug which I was happy to have found. He has been added to the friends list as well. I am a little concerned about the stories he was telling us – crocs in tool box etc….very disturbing. But it was enjoyable.
We were really hoping we would get through DS last night, but unfortunately people were losing focus by Spine I think and we had random issues of people not running into the hole etc.
Considering it was our first run together, I think it was quite good. We are going to try and get another run in this week to clear it out. A complete clear would be nice, but this way we can start working on heroics next week for the first couple of bosses and recruit for that. It makes us slightly more appealing as a guild than just new. I hope.
But – the most exciting thing – I didn’t call stuff out. Very occasionally. I wanted to make sure people were doing shit without me needing to coddle them, it was a relief to just be watching my shit and not thinking that others needed the help.
The guildies we have picked up seem to be very nice and I have to admit quite funny. I think we will all get along well providing we can push content. No resting on our laurels!!
Sorry for the long post!
