How Shit Happens:

In the beginning, there was the plan.
And then came the assumptions.
And the assumptions were without form.
And the plan was completely without substance.
The employees told their supervisors:
“It’s a crock of shit and it stinks!”
The supervisors then told the department heads:
“It’s a pail of dung, and none may abide by the odor.”
The department heads then told the managers:
“It’s a container of excrement, and it is very strong such that none may smell it.”
The managers then told the director:
“It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide by its strength.”
The director then told the VP:
“It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”
The VP told the Executive-VP:
“It promotes growth, and it is very powerful.”
The Executive-VP told the President:
“It is very strong and will promote growth and efficiency of the system.”
And the President reviewed the plan, and said:
“This is good.”
And the plan became policy.
And this is how shit happens.

Laser chicken? Where’s the bear?

All lined up in the bank and as soon I drop talented back onto the box it’ll be saved as well, I’ll just have to get used to eating the 50g respec (+glyphs) bill.

So, “why” I hear you ask, simple enough it’s a raid driven decision based on watching what tends to happen as things are shuffled around during some of the boss fights.  There are fights where the healing need is lower (the General was an example on Sunday) and therefore it makes sense to ask one or more of the healers to dps (it’s rare extra tanks are needed).

“Why laser chicken?”, at least initially it’s down to allowing me to use the same kit until I build up a second set rather than trying to sort out a feral kitty set of Ulduar quality.  As things stand (according to imba) he’s ready for Ulduar with the healing kit, though he’s well down on hit which would be a problem.  So the priority will be to get some dps specific drops which can be enchanted for extra hit.

“Don’t laser chickens look silly and unrealistic?”, no more than blue humanoids with squids on their faces.

“What do you wish for?”, a wardrobe to stick all these damm pieces of equipment in to free up bank slots.

Dear PUG Warrior Tank

The following should be a hint to any good tank that he should not be pulling trash and bosses

  • Please hold, chronic lag problems
  • A D/C from your healer
  • That’s better (when healer rconnects)

Then complaining after we wipe of

  • A lack of healing

Will lead the healer to decide this is going to be a fail pug and leave.
