But then I hit I-435... in the rain... lord, can people just not drive in the rain, or something? What normally takes me 15 minutes took 35. And I don't think it was simply the fact that I was leaving work an hour later than usual, although I am sure that had an effect.
WoW was... interesting last night. stormknight and I got into a pick up group for Wailing Cavern that said it NEEDED a tank (I was playing my warrior.). I get in the group to find that it already contained a druid (that seemed to like his Cat form.) and two hunters (pets work great as tanks). Um.... And they aren't terribly communicative. The only time I saw the leader say anything was unintelligible stuff that must have been about a duel - that he was watching.
Hardy any communtication in the instance. Everyone but I am a skinner and they all want the scales. They can't seem to understand that we need to pick a target, because I just can't hold aggro past anyone else's attacks unless it's the mob I am attacking (there must be a way. I will have to review the talents and skills open to me). But that's okay, since we had FOUR tanks. I guess.
We were halfway round the first major room of the instance when one hunter leaves (or was booted....) When we got fully around the first room, I got booted. Where upon stormknight leaves, too. We work as a team, after all. That left two in the instance. I do hope they had fun... or something.
I don't know if the leader was a kid, like my son, who is clueless about grouping and instances (and none to quick to read chat and even slower to respond) or a fully-knowing prick.
What-ever, I suppose I had to fall into a bad grouping some time. Glad it took so long.
We still had an hour until my usual sign off time, so we killed another quest in the Barrens. For a change, stormknight's character got all the quest items first, and it was my character with the slower luck.
Oh, yeah. And I totally embarassed myself by sending a message meant for family chat to the Guild Recruitment channel. Damn that for messing with my chat channel numbers. All my characters are in a guild now, which fixes that problem.
