OMG!!! It’s a WoW post. An honest to goodness, can’t deny it, all but the first few words at the beginning, are about WoW. No, the preceding mess of words is not really a sentence. I know because I have a minor in English. Leave me alone.
Anyway, today’s topic is: the ‘messy kill’.
Personally when I choose to go on a murderous rampage I prefer the messy kill. Life is all about organization and stress so why should it bleed over into my personal hobbies? I am still talking about WoW…seriously. /evilsmirk
Anyway, I got into a pug to bring down Jaraxus. It was…MESSY. It was a pug. We wiped on the menagerie the first time and by the end of the second attempt we have 1 healer, two tanks , and two dps. Actually that happened in the middle of the second attempt. We didn’t wipe. It doesn’t get much messier than that. If I was still in my old guild that particular performance would have a speech following it that would not include the words, ‘good job’, ‘that was fun’, or /cheer. Actually it wouldn’t include anything positive at all. I heard all those things at the end of that PUG run. And it was fun. And the fact that 10 people who had never played together before managed to get through that without only one fail (as in we all died) was a good job. It made me think: now why do raid leaders get all pissed off over ‘messy kills’?
We killed it right? Loots were to be had. We are moving on to the next boss. So what if we all have to drop a little extra coin on repairs after we raise the other half of the raid. So why? I don’t know. Priorities a little screwed up? /emphatic nod
So if a raid leader happens to be reading this please consider. If a player stands in the fire, like the tank did during the Jaraxus kill, please feel free to point it out. If someone wipes the raid on BQL because they somehow didn’t notice the obnoxious pink line attached to them and don’t go to the center of the room, go ahead and target them and type /facepalm. But if your kittens kill whatever they were trying to kill can we not beat them over the head with the OMG-you-suck-bat because it wasn’t exactly a perfect kill?
