My Cataclysm FAIL

December 7, 2010

Well, I don’t know how the launch of Cataclysm was for y’all, but mine kind of sucked.

And now I will explain why:

Reason 1: I apparently didn’t go to bed early enough.

Instead, I watched The Sing-Off (because I like singing. And TV. And TV that sings to me) and decorated the Christmas tree. And then after The Sing-Off, I went to bed. And I set TWO alarms: One for 2:30 and one for 2:50.

I slept through both of them and woke up at 3:45. Which is sort of amazing considering that I am dead to the world when I sleep.

So then I go and get flying in Azeroth and discover Olivia’s Pond, which was exciting because my sister’s name is Olivia. And then I go and get on the boat that takes me to my watery grave. Which brings us to…

Reason 2: I don’t like the underwater realm.

I don’t even like underwater quests. And I generally don’t like being in the water (I’m allergic to chlorine, so that includes pools) and I LOATHE water creatures, including fish. They nibble on your toes and it’s creepy.

Buuuut it’s just a game and I just needed to go collect starfish and a conch shell, so I go. And then I die. And then I res. And then I die.

Reason 3: I’m the worst PvP-player ever.

And because I know that, I just accept my death. I don’t even really try to fight back. Which, depending on the culture you want to side with, is either cowardly or noble. So let’s go with noble. And because I’m being so noble in not fighting the HUNDREDS (not joking) of Hordies that are just killing the shit out of me despite the fact that I just want some freaking shellfish or starfish or whatever, that makes them giant assholes.

So when I finally was able to res, I just hearthed and logged off, thoroughly annoyed that I woke up and logged in in the first place.

And that is my sad, sad tale. I sincerely hope you all had a better experience!

    Live on your way. But u are not meant to be in PVP realm. Accept it.

      Well, I’m on a PvP server because it’s where Nick is…and I’m sure that once I get better at PvP I’ll like it more. But I won’t lie, when I’m questing, I’m all business. So more than anything, I don’t like when people attack me out of nowhere because it’s not what I’m focused on and therefore it annoys the hell out of me. And so I bitch about it.

      But the day I decide I like it I’m sure I’ll sing PvP’s praises. Perhaps I’ll even write a song!

        I started out on a pvp realm myself and hated it. It’s not that I don’t like pvp, I frequently do battlegrounds, I just prefer it under “controlled conditions”. The rest is too stressful, can’t deal with it.

        I think your not fighting back strategy potentially has the effect of being very unsatisfying for the killer, cause you give them no challenge, and I don’t necessarily think thats a bad thing. Serves them right! *snicker*

    Whoah whoah whoah. I to am on a PvP Server, and it was the ALLIANCE that where ganking the #%$& out of the horde, who where simply trying to quest in Mt Hyjal! Hmm. LoL, well, hopefully things calm down, and those of us who are simply terribibble at killing other players (I can get someone down to, oh 80% health, before they kill me, and I am geared), can go back to killing the mobs. But I personally like the tension in the air questing next to the Alliance brings. Will they attack me? Will I miss target as they go for the same mob as me, attack them instead of the mob, and then they kill me? Can I possibly take on the rogue thats at 1/2 health over there? (I couldn’t, he stealthed – I forgot to put my hunters mark on him right off – and I lost him, but I threw a flare so he couldn’t get revenge). Hope today is a better day 🙂

    Make a plan and get Nick to make you a macro!

    It’s far better to get the hell out of the way when they start fighting when you are questing. So make a macro with all your stunning, slowing and disarming spells, when u get hit you target fast with ‘TAB’ and hit the macro (keybind to something you can find without thinking/looking) and then “run forest run”! Less frustrating then having to die and res everytime. Cause face it, somebody ganking you (Horde or Alliance, the bastards are on both sides!) won’t stop if you’re not fighting back. Honor = honor, and points = points. So make a get-away plan instead of fighting back or not.

    Good luck!

    This was funny stuff, On my Pvp Server (illidan) there seemed to be a ally/horde truce going on for the 1st 24 hours.
    Sad thing about you collecting starfish or whatever it was. Once you were done that quest you would have gotten perma underwater breathing, and the repeated drowning would have ended.

    Ewww, PvP. I can’t deal with it. More power to you for getting to level 82 (at least)!
