Actually, I’m not sure how Tuesday’s going to treat me this week, but hey, thinking positively is good, right? :)
On the agenda for today:
– Q&A post
– new poll
– maybe finishing up my key run stuff/extra boss stuff in Strat Live and actually uploading said videos, now that I’ve snagged a halfway decent microphone from my father after the tragic death of mine (that had nothing to do with an unfortunate incident with mayonnaise, FYI, unlike my last microphone’s death.)
– definitely being excited about a non-fail holy paladin app, who reads this very blog, with whom I’ve been emailing back and forth for a couple of weeks. Seriously, in the same week, we have:
1) Terribly, hideously bad applicant for a 9/12 HM ICC 25 guild.
Crap. The first one is gone from the armory so I can’t even chardev him. Suffice it to say, he had 350 haste, was wearing two pieces of T9, was using Glyph of Flash of Light, wasn’t using a Nightmare Tear (and not getting a socket bonus or anything by using a Dazzling Eye of Zul and a Luminous Ametrine), was using 8 stats instead of 10 to chest, was using 15 haste instead of 23 to cloak, was Honored with the Ashen Verdict, had a cloak with spirit on it from the vendor (I think I would have preferred the Drape of the Violet Tower in this situation…), had Icewalker to boots but no run speed talent, had no Improved Righteous Fury, only had 1/2 Imp Lay on Hands…
Anyways. You get the picture. Someone who was hideously undergeared for things like normal Sindragosa and normal Lich King.
And then you have someone like Applicant #2, who not only obviously reads this blog, but also takes what I say to heart. 994 haste? That is almost three times the haste Applicant #1 had. My GM said, and I kid you not:
“Wait. Hold the phone. Is it Christmas?”
A warrior tank:
“Another holy pally? And Madrana likes him? Christmas has indeed come early this year.”
And a rogue in the guild who has a very decent holy paladin alt:
“Excuse me, mister drug-induced hallucination, but I need to sober up now so you can go away, because you’re OBVIOUSLY much too good to be true… right?”
So maybe Tuesday is going to be good to me? :)
