Some history

Well, with the coming of Cataclysm, my raiding guild was slowly dying.  I loved Primus Pilus, they took me in with my shadow priest because they had no priest at all for Toc 10/25.  Being the only level 80 priest in the guild, I geared up pretty quick.  This was sometime back in late 2009 I think.  When ICC opened up, I was kicked to the curb unless they really needed me.  I was in Hawaii at the time and my latency kinda hurt me.  I averaged something like 350-400 on most days.

After moving to South Korea in Dec 2009, I remember one Saturday afternoon in June 2010 I was not able to raid due to a hangover (lol).  I got on finally and checked what kind of progress was made on the ICC 25 and low and behold, they wiped on Marrowgar!  Alot of QQ'ing, bitching, and name calling were still going on in ventrilo, all the while 17 toons (plus alts) quit the guild.  Kinda glad I had the hangover!

Needless to say, it's April 2011 now, and the guild is down to about 75 players.  I've pulled all but one from there because I still have some loyalty to the guys that took a chance on me.

Most toons are in a guild called Prisoners of Warcraft.  Not overly impressed with them but it's a home for now.  Two others are in Trail Biters, a social/leveling guild.  I've been hopping back and forth with them for a few years.  Friendly bunch and always willing to help.  Due to the amount of help I've received from them over the years, anytime a decent item drops (even l333 BOE blues), I'll send it to their GM as a token of thanks.

Got another in a guild called Excelsior (think I spelled it right) with the last one in Jentry Fan Club, the largest guild on server (alliance side at least).

That's it for now, I think I've slacked off enough at work for today.

Next post?  The Challenge I issued to fellow Trail Biters members!

First post ever

Well, never really had a blog before, but I figured as much as I play WoW, there's got to be alot of stuff to write about.  (5 minute pause while I try to think of the next sentence).  So with that in mind, I think I'll use this as a tool to discuss achievements, goals, recruitment and other (not) fun topics.
