I blogged for several years before I ever started up KMA. Today, I was browsing through those old posts today for something else (a post about respect in marriage, because I think it’s silly to celebrate ‘love’ as it is popularly defined) and I ran across this old post. It still gives me a bit of a giggle, so here we go:
Alas: So I was watching Lord of the Rings the other day while grinding in Shadowmoon….
Alas: And it was the first movie and they were in the Mines of Moria
Alas: And I thought:
What a failsauce 10-man raid
They go in with only 9 people
Friend: they pulled the whole instance
they had a leeroy jenkins moment
Alas: Four of whom are complete n00bs
it was like level 50 content and the hobbits are like level 10
Alas: They have a mage tanking
and the mage tank
that’s so funny! keep going
Alas: And their two warriors are more concerned with looking good than with wearing plate
So they’re in zarking leather
Friend: leather warriors!
hey, it’s rogue gear for dps
Alas: And somehow, the little guys pull all the aggro
Friend: cause they’re level 10
And they have no healers
Friend: they just got their first talent point and feel all bad-ass
lol! bandages ftw
the mage can’t even aoe.
Alas: And only one ranged DPS since their mage is tanking
Friend: sure he’s level 70, but why no aoe?
Friend: he coulda killed those 40′s and 50′s
couple of arc expl’s and bam. instance done
he never trained arcane
Friend: and why the sword?
Alas: Too in love with fire, I think
Friend: staves have better stats
Alas: I know!
He didn’t even have an off-hand
Friend: he said screw arc and frost
all i need is fireball
Alas: He didn’t even use Pyroblast
Friend: i know
man, they needed a shammy for windfury
Alas: He just never spent his talent points or trained
And then their dwarf guy – where was he in that whole mess?
he was all being short
Alas: Probably off looking for chests
“Guys, there’s treasure on my mini-map”
Friend: hey! i see a chest on my map
better snag it before we have to /roll
notice how he was all grabby with the tomb stuff?
he was a ninja
Alas: And the only reason Frodo didn’t die was because a higher level guy (Bilbo) gave him some phat lewtz
Friend: he had purpz!
Friend: they needed a priest for the mage tanking
Oh – and Gandalf was apparently out of light feathers when he got dragged down into the abyss
that’s instant cast buddy
Alas: Or he forgot he had slow fall
Friend: just pop it
lol! i’ve done that
oh yeah, he didn’t train arcane
“why are these light feathers a white item?!?!”
it was his first 70
after the fall his buddy decided to take over, he was all, gimme that keyboard
he had to spirit res
