Cog of Death

Still bitter over the LK thing, since that group killed him after 7 tries last night, I go rock WG and did not die the entire fight. I then get in a full clear VOA which will be the first one I’ve seen on the priest. The frost boss drops THREE plate items. Ugh.

Turns out the Cog of Death can be fixed by running

/script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript(“OnShow”, GameTooltip.Temphide);

which Maice pointed out to me. I feel a little blind without tooltips though especially on gear drops. But it doesn’t appear to matter much after the frost boss.

I notice the new raiding system allows for people to link a raid and you can click on it and see, prior to heading into the instance, which bosses are up or not.  It’s really amazing the features Blizzard comes up with that you never thought of but once you have it it’s like brilliant! *clinks beer glasses*

I run Drak’Tharon for my daily and then a DK Draenei (Soulprince) I met up with when I was around 68 in Scholazar Basin messages me for the first time in quite a while and just says “random?” and throws me an invite before getting a response.  Apparently he’s not tanking either because we have to wait 5 minutes to get a group, if he was a tank since I’m a healer it would have been instant.  I believe after this run I will drop this person off my friends list, since all he’s brought to the friend table so far is multiple requests to help him buy epic flying, and throws out random group invites that have no benefit to me.  The icing on the cake is we get FING Oculus.

I know the Oculus has a nice bag of rewards at the end, and it’s been made easier, but it’s still my very least favorite dungeon.  Along the first path of mobs he harasses the paladin to “hurry up pally” when the speed we are going is more than acceptable, and when this proves to be bothersome, decides to start tanking mobs himself.  Shortly after he demands we all go faster and I tell him we’re going plenty fast.

To add insult to the whole thing, because I didn’t want to run this in the first place, he leaves party after the first boss and I PM him and tell him that’s bullshit. I’d bet money that this person is in the teenage years (because they all do this almost without exception) and he confirms by whining his parents are making him get to bed.  So yes I remove him from friends.

I trick or treat at the innkeeper again and get turned into a black cat.

I then run into Plewps (Lemm in L2) and he turns me into a Wisp and I turn him into a pirate.

He tells me that we cannot do arena until a few weeks into Cataclysm. Wah!  We’re still on a 2v2 team called Lineage II Rejects also. I log out, it’s late.
