Sympathy for the Devil
So yesterday I was so excited to get into a raid doing the four world bosses with Cim the Warlock. After my three LFRs I decided to forgo them no matter what that little bossy Wrathion wanted, get your own sigils, geez kid. People are unpleasant to each other in there. Not how I want to spend my time.
My theory is that world bosses are done by the people on your server so they’re less likely to act like, I don’t know … yes I do but I’m trying to think of a polite alternative. Oh I know! Godmother says it and I’ve always admired it and wanted to use it. Gits! There, that’s perfect!
We do Nalak first. Admittedly it took a good deal longer than I remember when he was first up but these could all be people on their sixth alt like I am, trying to gear up. I was happy, the boss dies it’s a success to me.
So someone asks, where to next? Someone says, I’m paraphrasing here but I distinctly remember one word. They said, “Like I want to do anything else with you bunch of retards.” Oh my, I guess killing the boss wasn’t enough for them, we didn’t do it in style … darn. There goes my theory … first time that’s happened … WAIT! My theory still stands, this git’s from Azjol-Nerub not Fenris!
Raid leader said goodbye to them and kicked the git. We ended up at Oondasta. The only time I did this before there were two raids, it was practically over before it started that time. Not so this time. I thought I’d have to take out a loan for repairs. I did not see one nasty comment. We would get him almost down and he would turn around and Frill Blast killing almost everyone. At one point I thought I was clever and stood by a big rock, when he did it again I hid and lived. Very bad idea, I lived to get his full attention. OW OW OW.
We got a few more people and a new tank and yay! Down he went. Yeah, they were all stingy and didn’t drop anything but aside from the git from Azjol-Nerub everyone was nice even through the agony of multiple Frill Blasts. And oh, I’m not trying to besmirch the good name of Azjol-Nerubians, we had another from that server in the group who was most definitely not a git.
There, my theory stands. People are more likely to be nice when they’re on the same server.
So off I go to do dailies on the Isle of Thunder. HERE’S where I meet the devil. I come back to the base to turn in quests. I’m not paying attention, I’m standing there busy disenchanting, making cloth. I then notice chat. An Alliance Paladin … PALADIN, Sweet Elune, that’s so wrong, has been spitting on me for some time. He must have gotten tired of no response as he’s nowhere to be seen.
That stupid devil ruined my theory. It’s damned hard to have sympathy. Maybe he just transferred from another server and doesn’t know we all hold hands and sing kumbaya here … well in MY mind we do anyway.
Well … so much for my theory. There be devils ahead.
I’m a Paladin of wealth and … SPIT
