Blog Azeroth does a weekly topic that tends to be pretty kewl. I haven’t really posted for them in the past but I really liked this one (plus its great for everyone to share there’s!)
This weeks topic was posted by Skraps, although I have no idea who they are or where they are from…
I am sure this topic has been covered, but among all my other fails I fail at searching.
I have noticed a string of my recent posts covered how I fail, often epically. I would like to see how others fail.
I think it is very good for newer players to see how those of us make dumb mistakes, even though we have been at this for quite a while.
- When I was leveling up Fear Ward was dwarf only. I always trained from the same exact trainer in Ironforge. My first Onxyia I got a lot of shit because people thought I was being a douche by refusing to Fear Ward the MT. I kept telling them I didn’t have the spell but they thought I was lying. After the raid I went to the same trainer, and he didn’t have my Fear Ward. Then I noticed a dwarf chick standing next to him (I think it was a chick /shrug) and talked to her. She taught me Fear Ward…
- This one is from Everquest. I was the healing lead at the time and one of my healers was pretty obnoxious. I didn’t really like him so I kept him on ignore a lot. We were raiding some boss and we had to setup a complete heal line (multiple ‘priests’ rotating their big heal ‘greater heal’ so that every few seconds one would land on the MT). Well, we get this boss started and I don’t see this particular healers message going across healer chat so that I know he’s doing it correctly. I send him tells, panicing because this is pretty important and getting no response. I yell at him across vent asking why the fuck he is AFK and for other healers to step it up since he is randomly gone. See where this is going? After making an ass of myself everyone suggested I take him off ignore… /le sigh.
- My worst fail happens every raid though. Instead of typing out healing assignments like I wanted or putting them on a list in notepad so I know who is doing what… I’ll just call it on vent before the fight starts. We begin the boss… and I forget who I’ve assigned myself to heal. I can’t tell you how many wipes have happend due to my lack of short term memory.
so… How does everyone else fail?
