I don't feel like we're getting anywhere. I am hoping this week of practice will get us sorted out on the corners so it won't look so goddamn messy.
My hopes of Lush learning to tank it on his Monk were dashed as Bish didn't turn up, so Lush had to heal. Moo tanked up, and he had done it before so it felt ok, but we are still struggling on those corners. My corner must be a lucky corner because we have no issues, but the other guys, especially the one with just Aza and a healer, seem to take a massive pounding.
I am tempted to switch corners to try healing it with everyone else to see what is the problem, but I don't want to jiggle things up and make people disoriented. Last night we had the corners labelled different colours and that disorientated people already!
What concerns me more is that in a few weeks, Disco and Neri will be moving house. This means that we will be a healer down for a few weeks at least. We only have one offspec healer. If Bish doesn't turn up to raid then we will be stuck for heals! I think it's time I looked within our guild again for people who would like to step up to raiding, as I am really reluctant to recruit an outsider when we have so many casuals hanging around.
Asys has offered to heal on his shaman, but we need a tank. If Raked turned up then we would have a tank. But the other DPS classes are not hybrid classes. 2 hunters, 2 warlocks, a mage and a rogue - none of whom can take on any other role than DPS. Luxy is the only one who could but I don't really relish the thought of forcing people into an offspec role. I will just have to wait and see what happens.
In other news, Lacrox has returned to WoW and shocked by the changes of a new guild leader, a whole bunch of unfamiliar faces and when he asked me what role I needed him in I said heals/DPS. Not sure if he really wants to raid, but hey, couldn't hurt. Will definitely try to grab him for flex though. Now, off to inspect McTacky's gear...
