Another sleepless night for the sake of finals. Third this week. Screw college.
Life lesson: don't major in science. Two good things come out of this recommendation:
Firstly, future generations won't have to go through all the crap I've had to go through, sparing themselves a rather large portion of their sanity and, thusly, life in general.
Secondly, there won't be any new scientists to replace me, so I can end up making lots of money.
If you're an economics person and are thinking "I don't think you thought that one through, buddy," then you're right. I took an econ course once... Never again.
Onto more IMPORTANT things;
I did indeed transfer my pally back, but I did not name him AuntieJenn, Anteeegen, or AuntieJong. Sorry fellas, I just thought Auntie anything would be extremely odd to see on a male belf, oh excuse me, "male" belf. And you can't have 3 e's in a row in character names, so that takes care of the second.
No no, I let my inner and outer nerd take over when I named my character. If you can't take the suspense and really want to know what it is, go ahead and click my Armory link to the left. However, I'm not going to be updating my Blogger name (not even sure it's possible). Why? Because changing my name on here would only serve to confuse people. It's the same reason I didn't rename my blog when I stopped raiding (although I do hope to every god possible that I can raid next semester without much trouble).
Of course it wasn't fine. Why would I tell this story if it was fine? God you guys are gullible.
Anyway, they drop, and I roll need. The group FREAKS OUT. I politely and succinctly inform them that ret is my main spec, and I only spec prot to get groups faster. They insist that, since I was currently prot, I should only roll on prot gear. I found that idea ignorant, and chose to laugh at it, as it's a heroic and can be run daily for the drop, a point I also calmly conveyed to them. Apparently one of them had a character on my server and said he was going to go on TL and say that I was a ninja. Oh noes, heroic ninja for my actual main spec, I'm scurred.
This is the point that I found quite hilarious:
He said he was going to report me for "disobeying the loot rules," and that not only would I get the bracers taken away from me, I'd get banned for this offense.
Curious to see if this was possible, I did some research and, as it turns out, no you can't. That's straight from Blizz. Cash money.
Furthermore, I'm disputing the fact that I even WAS being a ninja-
- Ret is my main spec; hell, it's even my first spec of my dual specs which, when looked at on the Armory, appears to be my main spec.
- My ret gear is better, overall, than my prot gear (although my prot set is catching up quickly, sadly).
- I know ret inside and out (i.e. much better than I know prot), including writing a blog with at least a few informative posts on ret gearing, talenting, etc.
But what do you guys think? I mean, sure, I could have informed them that I'd be rolling on ret-type gear, but I run so many random heroics that to do so becomes tedious, and in literally every other heroic, no one cares.
