so i’ve been playing wow since it’s beta, so i’ve seen my fair share of ninjas. i’ve had things ninjaed from me a couple of times. even so, it won’t keep me from pugging something i really want to do. however, this ninja story i’m about to tell has a happy ending, well at least to everyone except the ninja.
my wife, as some know, is an avid pet collector. she loves having all the little pets she can have. the new patch which freed up bag space by putting your pets into an external “bag” saved my wife a TON of room. well, my wife had not gotten the squashling from the headless horseman. so, i made it a point to try my best to get it for her.
so, last night, my wife and i try to get a guild grp going to do the nightly HH runs. well, we got 2 dps people willing to go, but couldn’t find a tank or healer to save our life. eventually, we decided to find a pug one. we found a fresh 70 warrior tank (i know he was fresh based off his gear and low hp). even though i was feral, i decided that HH is easy enough to heal with just my healing gear without respeccing. i had done the same thing the night before.
so i’m leading this grp and the warrior starts getting “gitty” about the gear he wants. he keeps saying that he needs the helm so bad and such. this worries me because i know people of that type. they see what they want, and they take it. i type out the looting rules (all pass, then we discuss and roll) which the warrior didn’t much care for, but i’m leading, i set the rules. also, out of precaution, i put it on master looter. i’m a fair bear :) so the warrior gets all upset about this and pleads to have me turn it off. i told him i was just making sure everything was fair. that wasn’t good enough for him. so he pleads and pleads and finally my wife tells me just to turn it off, so i did.
everyone finally assembles and the warrior summons the horseman. he does an ok job tanking him. HH is such an easy fight when you have the dps we had. the HH goes down and what drops?! the squashling. my wife squeals and is very excited. i remind everyone to pass on everything. my wife passes, a guilde dps passes, the warrior GREEDS it. as soon as everyone sees that, all heck broke loose. everyones was asking why and stuff. now, if you’re ninjaing something, clicking GREED is a mistake…. also youwait til you’re one of the last people.
so, after things calm down, i tell the other guilde dps to NEED it. he asks if i’m sure. i say ‘heck yeah!’. no person is going to try to ninja and get away with it. so the guilde dps gets it and then i immediately boot the warrior. he gets all mad and curses at us and all the sorts. i just told him that he needs to follow the looting rules. i knew he read them because he was complaining about them. so i said sry and put him on ignore.
well, eventually we got a guildie healer and i tanked the rest of the rounds. my wife did get her pet, so she is happy, which makes me happy. i hope everyone has had a good hallow’s eve wow holiday and gets all the goodies they want.
