Been a little while since i’ve done this but here goes!
A lot has changed since last I posted. New guild (again), new raid team, and new friends.
However I kept the old friends too.
I have much to tell you world, muches and muches to learnificate you on. Let’s start with the guild.
A long long time ago in a guild known as Icestorm(has been changed to not slander it) there was a 10 man raiding team. This raiding team seemed to get along well and all was peaceful in Icestorm. But then…a chilly wind rose from nowhere and swept over the raid team. It started in a retro Firelands run. I say retro because at the time we were raiding in Dragon Soul. Things got heated fast. And not just because we were in lands of hot fire. Nope things got heated because My lovely wife, Asherrylie and our GM at the time (once again name will be changed as not to slander) Dog both were on the same phase of the legendary quest. Thing was, Ashe was about halfway done with the phase they both were on, and Dog had just started. Logical thing to do is to give it to the one that’s further along right? Nah, let’s roll for it. Dog wins the roll and thus the item. That is the ONLY one she’s gotten to date. Dog never tried to get another run going, or take the time to plan one. She just EXPECTED everyone else to do all the work for her. Ashe however, joined a run through TLR(twitter land raiding) and start progressing in her pursuit of the legendary. After a bit of work she came to the point where she needed to buy the vendor mats.
Knowing the guild had ALREADY bought the mats for Dog, even though Dog wasn’t close to being able to need them, Ashe asked if the guild would purchase hers. This made a lot of sense to everyone seeing how our rogue (the GM’s Husband) Rlob (name changed to protect them) also used guild funds for his legendary. Ashe was told very rudely, “no.” This is where Dog’s hatred of Ashe began. Ashe had motivation and drive to get the legendary, Dog did not. Hence dog hated her.
What about me? Hahaha…ya I have no damn idea why they hated me. And I still don’t. Nor do I care anymore. Things finally came to a head after cata hit and Ashe couldn’t stand it anymore. So she transfer to Rexxar to play with people at Bads in Stands (Name changed for their sake.) about a week after she transferred, about 8 of us g quit. Yup. We just up and left. Why? the GM was never around, the new officers that “came back to the game” were never online, and they never talked to us or with us. THEY LITERALLY IGNORED US IN GUILD CHAT. Grow up. I’ll tell ya what my time spent in Icestorm made me new friends, but I wont miss Dog and Rlob.
So now what? I left and so did Ask, Ven, Rok, Ra, Vor, Joe, and eventually Tall (after me bugging him for about 2 months). Where were we going to go? Enter Band of Misfits and BIGBEARBUTT!!! Ask and Ven had been talking with them for a little bit and trying to see if they’d be a good fit. Turns out they were just about perfect. Within 2 weeks we had a new raid team, TEAM DIPPY!! ( Yes reference to Brawler’s Guild) AND we were rolling through MSV. In addition to those stated above that left with us, we picked up 3 people from Misfits to round out our Dip-tastic team! BigBearButt’s hunter, A Deathknight named Monstre, and our new GM, Denial…who i had no idea was the GM until about week 3 of raid.
As a riad team we’ve grown and bonded I think. We only raid one night a week, and only for 2.5 hours but in that time we’ve cleared 4 of 6 MSV and 1 of 6 HoF. Currently we’re all playing the Main toon shuffle game. I currently raid as a paladin, but in the near future that should become a warrior OR mage. Or GM is switching to a rogue and our DK is switching to…something. IDK what. I feel Band of Misfits is a great home and I’m proud to call it such. It’s full of great people who just like to have fun.
So this brings us to the Penguin. As a whole life is going on. Times have been rough but seem to be looking up. I raid with two guilds and currently friends with many more. I’m addicted to transmog and am working on completing my 22nd and 23rd mog set. I love to pet battle and my favorite battle pet is my Pandaren Water Spirit. I love the colors orange and pink. I enjoy Sushi, Pizza, and Steak. And I am a geek. With my Wife by my side I know i can do anything and her support and strength guides me.
