Ok not sure what happened Monday other then we were missing our raid leaders. I was hoping to find out here what happened. I know some times life takes it's toll on us and emergency happen.

We cleared the trash with 9 people, but didn't feel we had enough tanks to deal with the Stewarts, plus one of our pallys was DC'd do to a storm. The week before we didn't have enough healing or something to pull down Morose.

The thing is when all or key players are there we rock, Lately we seem to be missing several people. I do so hope this changes. I know this is an Alt raid for many of you but its my main raid for Kara.

So heres hoping that our future runs will go smother and people will show up. Or at least give us notice they can't be there. Catch you all on the Flip side.

Lately we have been having to add new people each night and I got to thinking on our loot rules. This last time you changed it to Master Looter which is cool way to avoid problems.

But I was wondering if there wasn't a way we could give a hand up to those that have been coming every week and putting in the time. Its always hard when you have been trying so hard to finely get a drop to see it wisked away, by someone you never see again.

On the other hand people coming to help should also have a chance a winning something for coming and working and spending the time with us. Though personally I would like to see them coming more often once they start coming with us.

I was thinking on something like what Gruul raid was like in the beginning where if it is a need item those who have been coming can random 1-150 anyone else can random 1-100.

It dosn't mean you'll win, but your time spent is reconized and you have a better chance of finely getting that item you needed so much. It is just any idea I'm not sure how everyone else feels about it.

sorry about tonight, I keep getting an error saying file en ### is wrong, reads at 3361 and should be 3375 or something. Running a repair on the program now but its taking forever.

this is actually what its saying:
The patch "enUS-hdfiles\Data\enUS\tos.html" could not be applied. (Invalid source file size: expected 33631, actual 33657.) If this problem persists, you may be able to solve it by uninstalling and then reinstalling the game. If you are unable to correct this problem, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (BNUpdate::PTCApply)


so ya...guess i'll be reinstalling the game tonight, won't be making it back.
Again I apologize.

As for the loot rules, getting people grouped is annoying, starting on time is near impossible. So yes, those who are here and on time should get a recognition for their loyalty. However the whole 1-150 thing is as much a joke as Ni Karma. I'm looking more at a ladder system like what seule's raid uses.

No worries, I'm just thinking it would be nice and would help us to continue progressing to the end bosses.

Just a heads up, in order to increase my healing ability I've respec'd. To mostly holy priest. To get what I wanted I lost the ability to cast Divine Spirit. Hopefully this will not be an issue, I need to work on my healing numbers over all, this will be something of an experment on Monday. If I find it doesn't change much I will adjust it again, I don't have the +healing gear some people have to off balance my desire to be more a displine priest. I still have improved fortitude though.

Yea, I noticed I could but would have to give something up I wanted to try the 41 point holy group heal thing it is an instant cast. I"ve also added quartz and noticed that I have lag on my spells. Trying the macro stop casting but its kinda of a pain because if I hit it to soon I cancel my darn spell which can be bad.

shouldn't be too big an issue. I think we may have sub if they're on.

Until I'm overridden by Tandy, this is how I'm going to run attendance if I'm caught organizing.

- You have until 8p to show up and be counted as on-time.
- If we have 9 people, we'll start clearing and give you 10-15 to show up before taking an sub.
- If we have less than 9 people and sufficient subs to fill in the ranks, we're going to fill up to 9 by 8:05 at the latest (if possible) and start clearing.
- Sub or not, we'll have the 10th person added by the time we've cleared Attumen. If you're a regular and not here by then, sorry for your luck.
- If we can't even get 9 people by 8:30p, the raid for the night's a wipe.

Note, this is just if I'm the one doing the organizing. If Tandy's doing it she has her own procedures and I certainly am not overriding those. If she shows before 8:30, I'm more than happy to give her the reins and she can run the raid as she wants.

Anyhoo, Monday's on as scheduled. I'm going ot be on as Fiadfiel well before the raid, so if folks want to tell me once I'm on if anything's up, feel free. I will note that at 7:30p I will be stocked and ready at the summoning stone. If that changes, notice will be given here or at the very worst in-game over the mca channel.

REQUEST: IF YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BE LATE, LOG OUT STOCKED @ KZ.

Paltos has a standing with the raid that he will always be a little late, but he is always parked just outside and ready to go.

I get off work at 8pm and traffic willing am home computer up and all by 8:15. When my wifes not working I generally call her ahead of time to turn on my computer for that is one of the longest parts. If I need too I can have her log me on to the game as well. It just depends if she is busy with a raid of her own or not.

If for any reason I am going to be later or not make it, I'll post ahead of time, though acts of nature and man I can't be held accountable for.

I'm still getting the same error I was getting last Wed. I've reinstalled WoW twice now and something is just wrong. I've called blizzard tech but after being on the phone with them for 45mins yesterday and not fixing it, I haven't called back and as of 2:30 server today I've gotten no email. So...ya, don't think I'll be on tonight. I apologize.

Things happen, Tandy. We know you'll be back when you can. Until then, be safe and let me know if I can help.

Paltos: *nod* Yeah, I know you have no choice with RL keeping you late on occasion. I'll be sure to hold open a spot for as long as I can.
