New patch, New beginnings

So, tonight was the night. My husband, myself, and 5 of our friends from the guild we were raiding in finally /gquit. We all did it at the same time, logging out of their Vent beforehand and just going quietly (well, as quietly as 7 people can leave anyways).

I’m not as sad or upset as I thought I’d be. I only will really miss one person from that guild and upon speaking to him later in the evening, he said he had no hard feelings and understood why we left and that he had sorta seen it coming for a while anyways. I still feel like we sort of stiffed him though; the 7 of us that left were sort of the core raiding group; we were the ones that were there on time, with supplies, who knew the fights…and now that guild is left with people who don’t.

We didn’t just gquit into the nothingness though – the past few days we had set up a guild site and planned a guild to get together to start fresh. Our new guild is Sanctis Draconis and we plan on making it into a 10-man guild, which is especially nice with the changes to raid lockouts in Cataclysm.

Speaking of Cataclysm, I am quite nervous for patch 4.0.1! I’m not ready to say good-bye to mana or my quiver and buying arrows on Kandin. I enjoyed buying arrows – in a way it made me feel more hunter-y. For Mertaka I’ve only really looked at the Restoration tree and I think I can handle that. I rarely ever run her as Elemental anymore so I’m not too terribly concerned with that tree at the moment, although I know I should be since that’s the spec I’ll be questing in. It’ll be a little weird to start stacking Spirit on her though! I honestly haven’t looked at any of the Death Knight DPS changes yet. I’m excited though to actually be able to use my Frost DPS spec. I’ve longed to play around on that ever since I bought Galdran’s dual-spec. Hopefully Blizzard has put into the game some actual one-handed weapons for us to use (hooray for no more rogue/hunter weapons!)

And on another awesome note: two guildies and I did a quick ZG run for mounts before the servers went down, and the Swift Razzashi Raptor dropped and I WON IT. I was astounded! I felt sorta bad though because the one guildies that went with us had been farming that place for a few months trying to get either mount out of there. I offered to trade it to him, but he let me keep it.

 

See you all post 4.0.1 😉
