Wednesday raiding - Hard times
With Fue still out of action with his wrists, Falln had to tank up again. I feel bad and I apologise to my guildies for being snappy and rude when I was given the responsibility of sitting out people, because I didn't trust anyone else to do it fairly. Myself, Az, Sabre and Hwired ended up sitting out, with Hwired sitting out for the whole lot. Roshii and Souglyy missed out last week so I wanted to make sure they were included (in fact it was the foremost thing in my mind) and when Roshii reminded me that he sat out, I was stroppy because I was thinking "I already know that please don't remind me, this is hard enough as it is." Not that we did much, we only did the first two bosses.
I can only comment for Horridon as I sat out for Jin'rokh, but it went ok, but Council was hard for Falln. He told me he really didn't like it, he hated it, and I don't blame him, it's not that easy for a first time tanking it. He was pretty squishy, and damage wasn't as high without Az or his spellpower buff. What makes me feel even worse is that I took the Tier gloves last time, when I could have taken the chest, and on Nalak this week I got tier gloves! If only I had a crystal ball - Roshii would have had Tier and I would have had a chest.
Anyway, multiple wipes were painful and we called the raid when Raked's flask ran out. It was almost the end of raid anyway.
Whilst I was sitting out for Jin'rokh, I decided to try to vent my frustration with some Arena with Sev. We were up against a mage and a disc priest. I wish I had taken a different talent, because we did not have the burst to get them down, but they also didn't have the damage to get us down. We were close a few times, but fears, iceblocks, silences were hell annoying. I was using Nature's Vigil instead of Heart of the Wild and that might have been our downfall - and I was using the wrong glyphs as well /facepalm. The match went for 30 minutes and we both ended up losing 12 points. BLAH!
Without Fue this week, I'm not sure that we will get much past council unless we do some major DPS reshuffling. I might sit out for Council and let Lush heal so that Hwired and Az can both get in. Then I can get my PvP fix as well - and maybe some fishing (Yuuna nags me every opportunity about my fishing - both he and Luxy have all their carp now!)
