Not a Nice Person

On the surface, I am nice and friendly. But deep down... I have an evil streak. In this case I'm feeling guilty for finding humor in the suffering of others - so much so that you're getting a post about it.

WI covered an Alliance guild named Havoc in their 15 min of fame section.

The story summary is they went from a newly-formed T5 entry guild to getting the server first Illidan kill in 6 weeks. Yep, you read that right: Six weeks. Apparently some of the guild was still wearing blues. In comparison, it took us 14 weeks to go from Rage to Illidan, although a couple of weeks in there included Christmas/New Years. I think we out-geared these other folks, though.

So they're riding high on the Illidan kill. They're on top of the world and letting everyone (including the ~30k WI readers) know it. And then they try Sunwell.

/insert evil laughter

Long story short, their guild "is dead" the week after their Illidan kill. They got Kalecgos to 1% but "the reason we didn't finish him is because the MT doesn't pop shield wall (or claims he does, then goes from full to nothing in about 2 seconds)." Wow. I guess they don't know how that fight works. SWP = tanks dead in <1 sec. That forumla is right up there with gravity and the speed of light.

The GM goes all kinds of crazy in that realm post. It's like no one told him Sunwell is hard. And once he couldn't just grab any old random strat and beat a boss, they gave up. (For the record, not every SWP strat contains correct info. You have to read a bunch, watch a million videos, then do real tests of what works.)

I laughed. And laughed. I guess I wouldn't have lol'd so much if the guy didn't sound so egotistical. "A little part of me died every time I had to yell at people to rebuff the dead, to flask, elixir, show up on time, and *gasp* PAY ATTENTION instead of watching TV during raids." Welcome to my life and the real role of raid leaders. l2pullfaster if you want to hold your members' attention.

He calls out who the good people in the guild are, then proceeds to give examples of how they carried all the rest of them on their backs. lol Burning your bridges ftw, I always say.

They were a shooting star, a one-hit wonder. And it brings me much joy to see that clearing content after various MH/BT boss nerfs and equipment upgrades doesn't mean Sunwell is easy.

It also gives me a bit of a pick-up that while we might not be the fastest guild out of the gate, we have what it takes to stick out the hard parts.

Your site is great, I cud tell something about the [url=http://www.igset.com]tyrande whisperwind[/url] and [url=http://www.igset.com]WOW night elf power leveling[/url]:Millennia before the Great Sundering, Tyrande Whisperwind grew up as the childhood friend of [url=http://www.igset.com]Malfurion[/url] and [url=http://www.igset.com]Illidan Stormrage[/url]( I started my [url=http://www.igset.com/wow-power-leveling.php]WOW power leveling service last year, with our help, you could kill Illidan one day and get his swords). One day Malfurion came across several legends that referenced a reclusive demigod of the forests. Malfurion had always had great reverence for the natural world, although the [url=http://www.igset.com]night elves[/url] as a race had long since abandoned any interest in such matters. He shared the legends of Cenarius with [url=http://www.igset.com]Illidan and Tyrande[/url]. The three night elves decided that it would be an exciting adventure to search for the demigod, though in truth they no more believed in Cenarius than the rest of their people did. The laughing trio was shocked into silence when Cenarius stepped out of a shadowed thicket and offered to teach them the druidic arts. They accepted eagerly. [url=http://www.igset.com]Malfurion[/url] proved a quick and talented student, but his brother was clumsy and quickly grew impatient. For her part, Tyrande was glad to learn what she could from Cenarius. Nonetheless, she was already a novice in the Sisterhood of Elune and so had dedicated herself to the goddess above all others. Malfurion alone would go on to become a [url=http://www.igset.com]WOW druid power leveling[/url].
