Annoyances

See that?  It clearly shows you why Transmogrification is needed in the game.  My poor Saintvache looks like he hit the dumpster behind the local theatre.  The frustrating part is that I either can’t build an outfit for his level or I can’t find the parts for what I want.  This is actually a glaring occurrence for many of my toons (all but half a dozen or so) and it seems my efforts to fix it always come up just shy.

In other news, a friend convinced me to take Tumunzahar and LFR for the first time today.  We bought a couple of PvP cloth items off the auction house and then I used my justice points for a ring upgrade and I was good to go.  Not surprisingly, I was the lowest geared healer there, but I wasn’t the worst (wewt).  I wasn’t at the top either, but I didn’t expect to be.  As Grumpy Elf suggested, the lower the gear the more likely your odds to get upgrades.  I won Robes of Glowing Stone and Seal of the Seven Signs.  Those boost me to a natural 371 ilevel and (I’m almost ashamed to say) this.

All in all, I enjoyed the first part of Dragon Soul and the group was relatively decent.  People surprised me with instant cries of “KICK THEM” as soon as someone DC’d…yet it took us a whole boss fight to notice someone was in the Trade District during the entire encounter.  Prior to the last fight, I get a whisper from my friend asking if I’m the noob using Leap of Faith on people.  Honestly, unless it’s that one in a million situation where I might need to, LoF has no place for me in a raid.  I don’t even think of using it in 25 man.  Turns out, someone was using it alright.

I found out first hand during the final boss when the ice walls were popping up.  Someone Leap of Faithed me into the wall.  I died.  Admittedly, I also swore.  This person then whispered I was a moron and logged.  So, in pure immature vindictive fashion I went to said server and degenerated into swearing at him again.  He came back to my server and thanked me for the screenshot then left again before I could reply.  So far, I handled this situation poorly.  So, I went back to the other server and tried to find out what the problem was.  He admitted to LoF’ing me into the ice.  But then said I did it to him first.  And then put me on ignore.

Again, I didn’t use Leap of Faith once during the entire raid, so I don’t know if he confused me with someone else (perhaps he wasn’t the Priest doing it to people and it was the other one…whom he thought was me?).  There were three Priests in the raid, so anything is possible.  Still, it irked me that it happened, that I handled it incredibly poorly, and that I couldn’t actually discuss it in a civil manner.  Oh, and in case you’re wondering what realm this person was from…Khaz’Modan.

**edit**

In an effort to get this up in a timely manner I forgot something, and that’s the fact that for whatever reason some of the non-Wordpress blogs aren’t letting me post.  Doesn’t matter if I try anonymous or with Open ID, it just will not process.  Sometimes, like moments ago on ALT:ernative, I can get it to work so long as I have MY blog open.  I can’t even begin to understand how that works, but just know that it isn’t just me so if you’re comments section isn’t as boisterous as usual, that’s probably why.

      I’ve actually found some gear success since posting. I think I just need shoulders, feet, and something Main Hand

    I have taken my stupid word authenticator thing off in the hope JD will post more comments on my site 🙂 trhough the damn login thing is still a bugbear. I’d say just go anonymous.

      Yeah, yours, nevernude, and another one were the three I’ve had the most difficulty. Also, wow_ladies on livejournal.

      Putting together a vast post, or a complete transmog for someone and then losing it from not being able to post? Most disheartening. 😦

    I know, it takes me 15 minutes to try to defeat a Blogger blog’s defenses. I guess us WordPressers will have to talk amongst ourselves.

    I’m still laughing about the guy who was in the Trade District for the entire fight.

      I can’t believe none of us noticed!

      Thanks to Navimie, I’ve learned it’s a result of changes Blogspot made. I keek them. Hard.
