Lost of Raids and other things

Holy cow! It's been almost a whole month since I last wrote.

Things have been a bit crazy. I've had a few more tests and the doctors have finally decided that my pain comes from two sources. One is from acid reflux and the other is nerve/muscle/or something else. They weren't too certain about the second source other then it wasn't anything internal. I'm definitely starting to feel better. I'm currently planning to return to college in January. I'm really excited about it.

Currently I'm helping more around the farm. My dad was cleaning the office windows using the lift when he fell and landed in the holding area. He broke some ribs, the bone in the back of the shoulder, and one of the bones in his back. Things could have been a lot worse. My dad spent a night at the hospital but then he's been home. He had to wear some braces but he's now doing a lot better.

Alright, now for what I've been up to in WoW. Let me think. I've been raiding. And some more raiding. I think I did some raiding on this other night as well. XD

Are late night weekend raid team is currently working on Thok. It's definitely a good fight to be a hunter on but I'm feeling like my lack of gear is holding my raid team back. I try to remind myself that I'm not actually undergeared just not as geared as everyone else. Right now everyone is hoping I can get a weapon drop and maybe a trinket as well. But I have confidence that I'll get something this week. I finally got my legendary cloak on my hunter and things can only get more awesome from there.

My guild leader has also been trying to build a second raiding group. It doesn't raid quite as late at night and it mostly consists of alts and friends from other guilds. We've even got Arv to come dps a few times. Norushen is not very cooperative though. Of the times we've been though we've only killed him once. I'm hoping that as the weeks progress we'll get a more consistent group of raiders and start progressing though it better. But it's still been fun and it's awesome to get to raid with Arv again.

I've also moved several of my toons from Shadow Rising to Spoiled Milk. I was really tempted to leave my death knight in SR but I realized that I haven't been playing her because I know that I'll miss out on any pugs, flexs, or other things that SM is doing and that SR isn't. I do my the SR crew but I'm glad that the SM people enjoy having me hang out with them so much.

I feel like I've gotten a lot closer to them now that I'm "offically" SM. Which is kinda funny because they are currently talking about merging our guild with another one called insomnia. It's a late-night raiding guild and the hope is to be able to have the twenty people for the mythic raiding in the new expansion. I wonder why they think we'll be pushing that content when we aren't even doing heroics now? Insomina is which has me wondering why they would consider absorbing us. It's not set in stone right now and I'm definitely worried about it. I don't want to lose the people I'm currently with. We're hoping to get a flex group with some of the members from Insomina to see how well we mesh together. It'll be an interesting night.


  1. I am glad to hear things are working out with SM. :)

    And yes guild mergers are always nuts and something to be wary of, but they can work out.

    Glad to hear things are working out health wise for you as well ::)

    1. Thanks. I'm glad things have been working out. I'm definitely wary a guild merger but so is everyone else. Hope things are going well for you.

  2. I miss you too, but I'm glad you're enjoying SM. I've been raiding steadily since Wrath and am just burned out on it. I've been having fun slumming around in LFR and leveling alts and just doing whatever the heck I feel like doing instead of worrying about gear and raid times. Just want to be sure that you know I appreciate being asked to come along when you need someone, and I love playing with you, but I'm just not into raiding right now. It's not you, it's me. If you wanna hit LFR or some old content or some Timeless Isle rares or some Warbringers or something like that though, you know where to find me. :D

    1. I understand being burned out on raiding. After Wrath I just couldn't bear to face raiding in Cata and just faffed around leveling alts and running heroic dungeons. I knew when I asked that you probably wouldn't be coming since I knew you were feeling over the raiding but I also figured it didn't hurt to ask. Also if you want someone to lfr, flex, run old stuff, hunt up rares, or just some company be sure to ask! We could even do a hearthstone battle :)
