Isn't the World of Warcraft a more inviting place to log in when you're not butt-scrunched down into your chair in anticipation of the first nastygram from a groupmate?
Caught being uber: Night elf warrior from Stormrage whose name starts with a D To the fellow warrior from Stormrage (I forget how to spell your name, but it started with a D): A couple of my guildies and I queued up for the first branch of SoO last Friday evening. I ended up realizing after we got the Enter Raid button that I had chosen to tank by accident. I usually don't tank an instance until after I have run through a couple times in fury spec, just to get a feel for the boss and mechanics.
Anyways, I told you to just point me where I need to go, and you coached me through beautifully. We coasted through the first two bosses, and you took us all the way to the Sha, where you informed the entire raid that you wouldn't be tanking him again, but here's how you fight him. I have never once had such a fantastic experience in LFR, with everyone chatting about how long they've been playing (I think I was the baby, having only been playing for a few months and most everyone else since vanilla), and you made an impact on my best's opinion of Stormrage (which has never been good). Much applause, kind night elf. I hope to tank with you again if the rolls allow. -- Gamad, Argent Dawn (US-Alliance)
Caught being uber: Elchobacabra and Kilvin, Blackhand (US-Horde) I had a really fun time in LFG tonight thanks to Elchobacabra and Kilvin, both of Blackhand (US-Horde). We started out with UBRS and actually managed to kill all the bosses, and no one nerd-raged when we got lost ... many times. We were 56 to 57. but by the time the run finished, we were all level 58. Outlands!
We queued many times for Outlands dungeons and had a blast, even when the party wiped two times on Quagmirran (aggro range like Curator, I rediscovered to my sorrow). Elcho and Kil helped keep things light and funny with their jokes and friendly jabs. It's obvious they are friends, and it means much to me that they included me in what they were doing. I haven't had fun like tonight in too long. I was sad when I had to log for the night.
Just in case either of them read WoW Insider: Thanks for the fun ride to level 61! -- Veld, Malfurion (US-Horde)
