And then she imploded...

I've never thought of people in villain categories. But as of yesterday evening I found someone who could be discribed as my "Arch Nemesis".
He also plays a Shaman, as a healer mainly and thinks he is the king of Shamans, the only one who has had something like an epiphany on Shaman healing and gear. This extends also to other classes. He bickers about everything that he sees and dislikes, for whatever reason.

And he is in my face all the time when he is on his Shaman and his other characters. "Yeah I thought about getting that ring, but I think xyz is far better (insert link to BT/Hyjal/SSC loot here)."

As if I don't know that. But I cannot make bosses drop the things they do. Yesterday Maiden didn't drop the mace nor the totem. Yay me.
Well, he mostly kept to the other guys in the group yesterday when he was on his hunter. There were only random snide remarks in my direction and I thought he was really making an effort not to critisise me too much.
But before Prince, the other healer had to leave. So Mr. King-Shaman logged onto, yes, his Shaman and one of the first things he said (because there was still a DD missing) was that I could go and respecc to Enhance because he could easily heal the MT alone. WTF?
We were going to do Netherspite... and luckily for the group I did not respecc because Mr. Supershaman had a disconnect shortly after the pull.
I really had a hard time keeping people alive, but I think it was not bad that only one died. But I was becoming really pissed off with him, I knew I was going to blow up eventually. If he made just one more snide remark about anything.

I should have muted my microphone...
After we wiped on the Prince, and the boss came to me (I was the last one alive) he said something like: "Why did he come to you just now? what kind of aggro do you do? Did you even put points in the talent?"

I simply lost it. The asshole... first of all, get bent. And second of all, what the hell did you take that made your brain shrivel and say such utter bullshit?
And there were just too many things throughout the whole raid yesterday - I could not stop myself from asking why the hell he was in my face all the time. Then he wanted to whisper something to someone and instead whispered it to me, and I tried to reply that he had mistakenly whispered me only to get in red. 'xxx is ignoring you.'

So I said it on TeamSpeak, that he had whispered it to me. And couldn't refrain from saying that I will make it easy for him that he does not make this mistake again and put him on ignore as well.

I went to Shatt and off. And the first thing I will do, when I log on, is respecc to Enhancement and go farm gold for the expansion. I doubt I go back to healing before I hit 80.

If I do that and not stop playing altogether. Such people are the worst ever. And I won't spend my time listening to his bullshit ever again.

On the finishing line...

Wrath of the Lich King will come out on November 13th. That has made me think what I will do with the time leading up to it, and beyond.
Mondsucht said that he is afraid about my WoW future, and he may be right in light of playing on Dun Morogh. Last week I was sure enough that Dun Morogh had me back, at least partly, but seeing that there is little that I can accomplish alone - I have no intention on staying.

I waited over two hours on Sunday for someone who did not show up. I have waited enough, I have asked people enough only to be told that they don't want random groups, that they didn't know it was serious that I wanted to do the bloody quest. I've had enough of going nowhere.

I went to Zul'Aman yesterday, we killed Janalai, the shield dropped and there was no question that it was mine. Even though there was a paladin present who should have rolled on it too. He'll deny that probably, but anyway. I felt good, I didn't mute my microphone which I have not done in months. It felt good, even though I was tired. And after that we went to BRD to do the "Save Brewfest!" eventboss - something I've been trying to get a group for with my druid on Dun Morogh for hours on Sunday.

Just like that.

And even though I'm not over the chars I leave behind (I may transfer one or two later) I may as well be over the people on Dun Morogh. Even if they are nice, or in one case seemed to be nice... there's an end to everything.

... count down to WOTLK commencing...
