This healer shortage is a real struggle. I can't believe that 3 of our healers are no longer raiding. I mean, it's not just us, lots of guilds are having this same problem I'm sure. It's just me and Bish and poor Lushnek is offspec healing. His gear is not bad but healing is not his thing, and he doesn't really love it, so it's not quite the same as having a mainspec healer. We extended the raid and we're going at Empress - last week we had 4 healers and now we're at 2 and 3/4 healers (though Lush keeps putting his healing down, it's not that bad). I just feel BLAH about it all.
A plague of connection problems affected Fue (as well as some weird keyboard problem that made him walk backwards and his Push to talk was on permanently so we could hear everything), as well as Raked and Souglyy. I thought we were doing ok when things were all nice and connected, but I guess we're back to square 1 again. I had a few deaths from explosions ugh!
In other news, today I got a whisper from some called Quesdemonque from Deaths Finest. He wanted to talk to Fue, about a merger between our guilds. I offered to help him, but he wanted to talk to Fue. I know his guild, it's a PvP guild on our server. Execute went there. Anyway, what he wanted was to merge our guilds. I was a bit skeptical at first, but he said he wanted to lead RBGs and have more people to play with in RBG, but specifically they wanted High Warlord Azadelta. I was quite excited by the idea of a whole bunch of PvPers joining our guild - not only could we do rated BGs, but we could use a few to backfill our own raids! Ques talked about how most of the guilds are collapsing and soon there would be only 4 big horde guilds left on the server, as The Empire was transferring off server. I said that we were unlikely to collapse because our guild is old and made up of a core group of people who are all now friends. I hope I wasn't wrong when I said that! But I asked Fue later and he thought it was an alright idea. I wonder if they will really come?
