The background: Our guild/raid leader is out-of-town for ten days, leaving the other officers to organize 25-man raids… meaning no raids.
The setting: Someone’s DK alt organizes a 25-man OS raid. Although the guild should be working on multiple drakes up (progression? anyone? anyone?), it seems easier, sans leadership, to just kill the drakes before tackling Sartharion.
The motivation: Khaeli wants her Tier 7.5 gloves
The cast: Mostly guildies. A lot of alts, including 3 other priests, two of whom are alts, all of whom want the friggin’ gloves. The call goes out, “Who here is a healer?” and consensus is we need more. A mage offers to switch to his alt, another priest. He arrives specced as Disc. WTF. Grrr. I ask if I can respec shadow, but I’m ignored.
The quote-of-the-year: Thinking we must need more DPS if Khaeli wants to go shadow, one of the holy priests (not an alt, mind you) chimes up, “Well I have on hit gear and I have a great Disc/Holy build that I’ve designed, so I can probably just DPS if you want.”
(The drop, incidentally: 2 sets of the DK/rogue/druid/mage glove token.)
