Monday and Wednesday are West Kingdom Kara Raid night. We start at 9 PM. At 9 you should be repaired, have buff food, have pots/elixirs/flasks and be ready to go. This is the ideal.
Last night we did not meet the ideal.. or rather all but one person in the raid met the ideal. Gongniu, the tank logged off shortly before 8:30 with a “brb”. At 9:00 EVERYONE else in the raid was standing in front of the summoning stone in front of Kara. At about 9:15 his wife popped into ventrilo to say he’d “Be right there”. At 9:30 I became pissy and checked /lfm to see if we could get a pug tank. Wife again assured us that he’d be right in. At 9:45 he finally logged in and we immediately summoned him. He said he’d need another summon since he still needed to repair. He didn’t even bother to apologize.
I was FURIOUS. I’d just spent a whole hour standing around in front of Kara waiting for his lame ass to bother to show up for a freaking raid that started at 9. How do others deal with this? WK has no DKP nor raid points.. so we have no way to punish him expect to continue to be pissy at him. GRRRR!
After he showed up we had a great run through Kara. We downed Attuman in 14 minutes. Then we one-and-a-half shotted Moroes (everone but 3 people died and we had to reset the event. But we got it on the second try). Then we one shotted Maiden. If we’d had that extra hour we could even have made an attempt at Opera *sigh*. Nothing dropped for me.. I didn’t even get a void crystal. Kara hates me. I think I’m just resolved to learn from Kara and get my phat lootz from heroics.
