Here’s My Nerdy Guild Trying to be Funny

Here’s My Nerdy Guild Trying to be Funny

My guild has a peculiar sense of humour. After we killed Jin’Rokh last night, we move up to the bridge of doom. There’s all these ghostly adds floating on the sides and the wind just blows people off in different directions off the bridge. It’s a complete gong show but eventually we figured out how to do it. The trick is to grab each ghostly add from each side and tank them at the beginning. A raider noticed something about the wind textures.

One of my players remarks, “ Doesn’t that wind pattern look like the sine symbol?”

An officer responds, “Or the cosine symbol.”

Another player shoots back, “It’s certainly integral to what we’re doing.”

Not to be outdone, a different player pipes up, “I don’t think it’s a major factor.”

At this point, I rolled my eyes and flatly stated, “You’re all being irrational.”

Sigh.

Apparently, that’s my guild on a patch night. We were able to take down Horridon and put in some shots on the Council fight before we called it a night. I don’t know about you, but I’m already getting tired of the trash.

How was your patch day and what do you think of the new raid?

I could avoid accidentally hitting enter while typing my comment. I also wish my guild were half as nerdy as that. 


But, alas, I should get real. Those jokes are too complex, and would not feel natural. :P

@mattuzzi They are either the 2nd or 3rd pull. A big Troll that spins and a whole lot of little trolls. The little trolls put a debuff on your tank that reduces healing received, and put a bleed on him. I eventually became unhealable and the bleed killed me (Paladin tank).

@mattuzzi @TedtheThird we also grouped up and blew cooldowns, there was a Barrier, SLT and a Revival going at the very least. SLT ignores "reduce healing" debuffs as it just shifts health percentages and combined with other cds reduced incoming damage to reasonable levels.

@TedtheThird @mattuzzi OH, that guy. Yeah, I saw that too. I think we actually had two sets of the big Troll? I just said screw it and called for Heroism to kill it asap.
