Played Lately: World of Warcraft

  • I originally wrote this as a comment on Righteous Orbs, a blog I only discovered today. Good stuff if you like WoW-centric blogs. Anyway, I thought this was too good not to share with the three of you who read my blog. Enjoy.

  • Funny story (I hope). On a recent trip to Shadowfang Keep with my new priest alt, the PUG was running with a very new Hunter. He told us this was his first time in SFK. We all reassured him that everything would be okay. That was not correct. Just past the locked door leading to the courtyard, he and his pet started chain pulling mobs. It was not pretty. We ran back, told the hunter to take it slower, and tried again. Amazingly, we got through without incident. Right up until he pulled Arugal from across the room.

  • The paladin tank ran in and the other DPSers tried to do their best against the Sons down below, but I didn't have enough mana to keep everyone alive. And during the whole short fight, the hunter is asking for a rez. After the inevitable wipe, everyone started to run back accept the hunter.

  • I asked him, "You wiped our group and you want a rez?"

  • He called me a jerk and quit. The rest of us four-personned Arugal. I don't think I was wrong.


  1. Righteous Orbs is a great blog and I don't even play WoW. I just love the writing. :D

  2. You weren't wrong. The fact that he wouldn't own up to the mistake afterwards should've earned him a kick if he hadn't quit on his own. Remember, "Ignorance can be cured, but stupidity is terminal."

  3. There are at least four of us :-)

  4. PS: You weren't wrong.

    I have really fond memories of that fight with Arugal. Did it once with a guild group that was a bit under level for it and that consisted entirely of DPS (two locks, a hunter, a rogue, and a mage). We wiped three or four times, but we finally got him down. I can't remember exactly how we did it, but I have a strong memory of a the rogue going in behind a string of pets.

  5. @ Jayedub - Ha. Thanks. :)

    @ Ysharros - I think there may be too many blogs out there. I can't believe it took me so long to find theirs.

    @ Blue Kae - I'm not a huge fan of kicking anyone. At least not unless they're a jerk. I just didn't get where this guy was coming from.

    @ Yeebo - I don't even think Arugal is all that hard. So long as you've cleared his room first.
