I’m not sure when this revelation came about, maybe I’m trying to prove something to myself, but failure is something I’ve never taken very well. Hell, I don’t even like to be 2nd best. To me, fun is winning.
Because of this desire to not fail I’ve always been in some form of a leadership role. I’m always willing to learn and do whatever it takes to get to first place. If I’m not leading, then I’m mentoring or learning. Being first is an insatiable appetite that never ends.
It’s also why I take failing so badly. When my raid group fails… I fail. What did I miss that could have kept us alive? Did I assign DPS incorrectly? Was the healing targets wrong? Should I have put one more person on picking up adds?
I had planned on posting a vanity picture of me and my new Val’anyr. Sadly, it didn’t happen. I’m still not completely sure why we weren’t winning.
Yogg -1 is inexplicable harder than Yogg regular. I have no fucking clue how people have done it without keepers. It utterly fucks my brain. Srsly, Yogg takes a tentacle, sticks it in my ear, and swirls it around until the goo oozes out my nostrils… ewww… sorry. /shudder
I was talking to a friend of mine afterwards, Daenyx, and she mentioned to make sure and pull the Immortal Guardians farther away from Yogg than normal due to a heal that he does in p3. Maybe that was why we were wiping in the end? Maybe it was the fact that 2-4 people weren’t pulling their weight. Did you know on Yogg -1 you can’t carry anyone? Yea, imagine that shit out. /growl
Daenyx helped to cheer me up though. We got to talking about how anxious WoW can make us. I know each time we were getting to p3 I’d start shaking and have to audibly tell myself to calm the fuck down. For those who did Vashj back in TBC… its the EXACT SAME FEELING I’d get when we would get Vashj to p3.
Yogg is almost the exact same as Vashj if you look at it. Yogg has clouds you have to not touch and Vashj had the lightning charged people that had to stay away from the raid. Yogg has a hectic p2 that relies on everyone doing a single job and doing it well… same with Vashj. Then it culminates with a rather simple yet extremely difficult p3.
I loved the Vashj fight, even if it did cause me to kill an anger management class. I’m not really sure where I sit with Yogg. I’m sure I’ll eventually like it…
