You know that stupid game where you have to do everything the one guy does/says, without ending until he/she says to stop?
You know that period of history where people were called slaves?
You know that time when someone told you to do your chores?
You know tha-
In any case, I have an announcement to make. I have now officially led a raid, my first time ever. I stood at the beginning of a Naxxramas run and didn’t stop ’til the server blew us up after 3 wings of victory. I barked orders, snapped commands, cracked whips, made a sundae, had a milkshake, and then did more ordering.
I also knit a sweater.
A week ago, I asked my raid leaders whether or not they would let me lead a raid a week later(now), and they agreed to let me give it a shot(then). Which was surprising, seeing as I had just been promoted to class leader a week before that(way back then). I had hardly been able to test my metal at all(now, then, and more then)!
Nevertheless, I was given the chance and I thought 1 of 2 things were going to happen: either I would succeed and go on to lead raids for a long time until I got fed up and just nuked the instances every week(with bombs), or I’d more likely be a failure and have to hide in Blackrock Mountain until the heat blew over(which, given the environment of my hermitage, it wouldn’t).
We(the guild), to my great surprise, did really well! I’m not surprised because our guild can do really well, I know it, but I’m surprised because… they let me lead them and they didn’t mind. In fact, I think that everyone quite enjoyed that raid until Smolderthorn blew up in an explosion of lag which persists a little today.
For anyone from God is AFK who reads this blog, thanks a lot for being so nice to me my first time. Really, I was expecting more hell and a lot less help.
Although I’ve heard rumors of bets being placed. *cough*
After the lag, I decided to hop on over to the Alliance side of things to help deteriorate your infrastructure.
I ended up doing this instead.
It’s not raiding, but messing around with good friends for no reason other than to mess around is a great deal of fun. Great stress relief too!
