DOA - didn't even make the starting chute

So our last night of raiding died before we could even get started. I'm more disappointed in that than if we'd gone in with a sub-optimal makeup (no hunter or rogue for the Horrors) and just failed completely. While I certainly am happy with the progression we made through this expansion, it kind of feels like we went out with a whimper instead of a bang.

We did manage to meet most of our goals for Wrath, given our desire to raid with just 10 players and carry zero bench. This made it tough for fights like Earth, Wind, and Fire (as well as LK horror enrages) - but was hugely satisfying. Even when we said goodbye to certain raid members, it wasn't personal - it was goal driven.

Where that leaves me

I'm now looking for the right 10m (or exceptional 25m) guild to finish out Wrath with. I'm not looking to take a seat on the Titanic though, so I'm gonna be pretty selective. If I can't find what I'm looking for, I'll accept that I'll spend my final months in Wrath playing an alt or four, finishing Mass Effect 1 and 2, and keeping an eye out for some upcoming Star Wars titles that look pretty sweet.

As I mentioned in my last post, here's what I'm looking for.

  • Horde guild - PvP or PvE, doesn't matter. I'd rather not go alliance since I'll be coming back to my current server (and Horde) after Ruby Sanctum.
  • Two or three nights of raiding at most.
  • Start time of no earlier than 9PM EST (I live in Alaska, that's 5PM my time), with 3 to 4 hour raids.
  • 9-11/12 H 10 or 11/12 25 with a full time starting spot. I'm not looking to xfer somewhere just to ride the pine.
  • A guild that is looking for 1 or 2, not recruiting 8 folks who abandoned ship.

It's a steep list I know, but I'm willing to miss out on the kill instead of joining up with the wrong group.

If nothing else, SC2 will be here in a month. Mmm - firebats.


  1. Aw, I didn't realize that Kae's times wouldn't work for you. Come to think of it, they wouldn't work for me either - a little too early. If we needed a holy paladin right now, you know I'd try to convince you to be Alliance... but our roster is stuffed full. We're 11/12 HMs and at the right times though, 7 PM MTN time for three hours and three days. It just goes to show how ridiculously hard it is to find just the *right* guild for any given person, so many things that have to line up. I hope you can find it! Barring that, sounds like you've got plenty to keep you busy in the meantime. :)

  2. I'm sorry to hear that. :( My guild's having a bit of a roster shuffle at the moment and until that shakes out I can't say whether we'll have room. We like being lean too.

    Either way, I hope you manage to find a good guild!

  3. So now would be a bad time to mention Firebats are not a unit in SC2? (They sort of combined the Firebat and Vulture into a new unit.
