Dear God, this thread is still alive?
Hehe, well. I have quite a story for you guys! The OP is myself, I've since made a new forum account for reasons I won't go in to at the moment. Anyways ...
Those 2 characters I initially linked are long gone
. Around late January, early February of this year I was attempting Sartharion 3 drakes 10 man with my guild. This guild was ranked 18th in the US at the time and were pushing pretty hard to complete this encounter due to the fact that at the time it was the most difficult thing in the game to accomplish. Well we spent about 6 hours attempting it one afternoon and called it a night.
The next morning around 10am one of the guys who was in the group the night before started talking to me on Vent about a bug someone discovered concerning the encounter. It had to do with a talent in the Disc tree for priests and well, me being me I had to try it. The event snowballed in to a full 10 man raid with 3 Disc priests exploiting the encounter for about 3 1/2 hours (as long as it took us to kill him using this bug) when we finally killed him.
The next day around 7pm, 30 minutes before 25 man raid invites were going out all 10 of us were kicked off the server. As everyone tried to log in we got the same message that our accounts had been suspended. Of the 10 people, I was the only one to receive a permanent ban to my account due to previous warnings. I almost died inside
The opposing guild Alliance side (this whole story happened with a Horde guild) was <vodka>, the rank 3 guild in the world, #1 in the US at the time. They transferred off Mannoroth to Alterac Mountains. I figured since I was starting the game from scratch again I may as well go up a notch and apply to vodka. Well, I rerolled Alliance on Alterac Mountains and leveled to 80 in about a week. I applied and go figure, the night before an old priest who had gone casual decided to come back to the game. There went my spot ...
I applied to the next best guild on the server, <Wendigo Brewing Co>, and made it in just fine considering my experience. They are no where near as good as <vodka> is but you know what, I was sick of guild hopping. I went through 5-6 different guilds trying to get better and better without ever being stable. I've stuck with WBC and I don't regret it. I go in to my main 25 man raids and can name every single person there by their first name. It's a nice feeling know who you're raiding with and knowing them well. It makes the game that much more enjoyable
Now a days I have my 80 priest and 80 shaman, both are very well geared in full t8 + t9. I'm trying really, really hard to get the Gladiator title on either toon. It's something I've been trying to accomplish for almost 2 years now ever since my priest was on Skullcrusher specced shadow during s3. I can't quit this game without getting Glad!!
Well, excuse the wall of text but I guess I enjoyed writing this little story too much, hehe. Catch you all later!
