my guild, back in naxx era pugged in a boomkin to help out. He stops the raid right before the pull and insists on giving everyone in the raid Thorns, saying that the little extra damage could help. Halfway through the fight, like most boomkins he runs out of mana and says "OOM...Im going in!" and proceeds to go melee the boss.Now if we wipe in a raid or instance, its usually because we didn't have thorns on, and the cries of "THORNS!" is widespread.

Ha! I have a similar boomkin story. We were in Kara and somehow our boomkin and our rogue got separated from the rest of us as we snuck through the entire library. So they are on the far side and we're on the ramp on the way out. The rogue keys up and says, "How the hell are we going to get over there?"So the boomkin, for no particular reason, throws thorn on her and goes, "There you go, thorns. We're fine now. Just go."Now it's a whole big thing. Tanks refusing to pull if that particular boomkin is in group until he gives them thorns. Even if another druid put thorns on them. They won't pull until they have HIS thorns.Maybe there's a secret boomkin chatline where they come up with jokes to play on all of us.

Another Boomkin story!When we, as a guild, were still mastering the art of the Auriaya pull, we were trying it with Shaman totems. We forced the boss to despawn (don't really remember how) for a few seconds. I didn't want to run out and drop antother totem until she respawned. The boomkin in our raid said, "Ah, don't worry! She respawns over by the jungly crap!" (Meaning, the entrance to Freya's room). I said, "Oh! Okay!" ran out to drop my totem and promptly got squashed by an Auriaya respawn on my head.So now "the jungly crap" is a guild injoke for when things go wrong. We blame it on that.
