Why Didn't I leave earlier?

Monday afternoon....  Two more 25 man heroic raids....  25 man OS, and 25 man VOA....

And got a Trinket that is.....  awesome!!!!  Fury of the Five Flights   WOOT!!!

went from 0 emblems of valor to 8 in two days!!!

Had i spoke up I probably would have gotten in a H VH today too!!!

Now i must get a better weapon or two!!!!  Gotta do better DPS!!!

Big Improvement

Well, moved to another Guild, and Whammo 1000 percent better. I have been very busy this week, and didnt really log on Sunday... But when i did, I saw opportunities to do some raiding... Monday came around and I was signed up and ready to do 25 man Naxx. In the group of people i saw signed up I kept thinking no way they would include me... They had several non ranged DPS, including a Fury warrior better geared... Well I got in and we downed two bosses and I got two emblems of Valor... and of course the achievement for getting your first one because in Mythos I never got into one of the raids that gives them.
On a side note about Mythos putting in that rating system.... they added some more info...

"We'll be posting some more information on how it really works soon. We will not be using this for 10 man raiding, only 25. Tuesdays are the first day of our 25 man raid nights. Being on and available and ready (and having signed up) on Tuesday and Wednesday by 6pm server time will make sure you get the most EP (Effort Points) you can."

This is better, but it would still whack me good, as I currently can log on on those days...

When a guild has to go to this type of Mod, I wonder what is going on in the background... "Hey GM, this is X, I log in every night, do every raid and then when we roll on items I always lose..." It also stinks of elitism... Ultimately though, a guild master runs and controls his guild and it should exist for his desires.... That is why I didn't bitch too much and just left... Mythos was for someone else, other than me...

Back to Naxx, got Legplates of Double Strikes . They are a slight improvement over Staggering Legplates. I probably should have passed as another DPS player had much inferior gear... I might end up not using the new legplates as the old one gives me better hit. Must learn to talk it up better before the roll.

wow!

Looks like I left Mythos just in time.... Before my head would have exploded!!! Now they are implementing a Mod EPGP...a Effort/Gear reward system. Gee, let me guess... I am lucky enough to get in a raid on a Sunday or Monday...(the only two days I can get on during the time they raid) and then don't get on for a month because they do not invite me the next 3 weeks i log on and wait... (every Sunday and Monday on those weeks) I then get a piss poor rating, and get last choice or no choice...

"Raiding...Peeps who wish to do 25 man raids with us, please go out and get EPGP addon.. You can pick it up from Curse you also need this one too.. .. Also don't forget to make sure you have deadly boss mods and Ora2. If we get far enough into Naxx25, you will also need Frost Resist Gear.."

Oh got all those things....  Frost resist? Yep, got that a loooong time ago....  Didnt need it though...  have to get invited.

Yet My effort is impeccable. For example I logged in for the last two months EVERY sunday and monday...at 6pm server time when they do raids... Waiting and willing to do a raid.... I got into one late raid in those two months...

So fantastic... a reward system that rewards those that get invited....

Stalled on quest for better gear...

It has been over a month since I have gotten a new Item....  Haven't gotten in a raid or instance in that time as well...  ( unless you count the one time I got in NAXX but we didnt down the first boss)

So Alittle self inventory....  What is my gear, and what are my options for better DPS gear...

Helm.

Currently wearing Spiked Titansteel Helm.  I have it enchanted with Arcanum of Torment, Socketed with Chaotic Skyflare Diamond. According to MaxDPS.com I have one upgrade possibility.  Obsidian Greathelm.  Gotta do 25 man OS for that...  I think my guild runs that on tuesday nights...  I am at work then, so I dont see that happening.

Neck.

Wearing Titanium Impact Choker  - only way to get a better neck piece...  Run NAX.

Shoulders.

Here is one area I have more than one option to be able to improve it...  I am currently wearing Savage Saronite Pauldrons that I enchanted with Greater Inscription of Vengeance from the Aldor. 

I will continue this later...  must sleep....  work work work...
