It’s been a busy weekend, so this is the first chance I have had to do LFR Petaline, my resto Shammy. First half I only got the VP, which is enough, but second half, I got Timepiece of the Bronze Flight, a nice shield that was an upgrade. And tbh I loooooove shields, they are far nice than Off Hands IMO, so double yay!
But what is this? Mr Healing Pally isn’t happy that I have won it. He WANTS THAT SHIELD!! And I won’t hand it over as he is being whiney and rude. I did inspect his gear, it was the same upgrade for him, so not like he only had a 359 or anything.
So it’s onwards and upwards, and we put down Deathwing like the rabid animal he is. And Maw of the Dragonlord drops. Again, an upgrade for me, so I roll on it. So does Mr Pally-ally-alladin, and wins, even though he has the 403 version. “GIVE ME THE SHIELD OR I’LL VENDOR THE MACE” he says.
Now this is me we are talking about. I’ve dealt with assholes all my life, from the guy who wee’d on my My Little Pony toy when I was 5 to getting the snot kicked out of me to save a kitten from someone wish it harm (He was 6ft 5, that didn’t stop me) so an internet tough guy doesn’t phase me. And I have this mindset where I don’t give into bullies.
“Vendor it then.” And with that, I left the raid.
Did I want the mace? Is the Pope Catholic? Of course I did. Was it a better upgrade? Sure it was. But come on, if I give into people like that they’ll think they can get away with shit like that all the time, so no, I am not going to enable his crappy behaviour. I feel bad for the other people who needed that mace though.
So, maybe I cut my own nose off to spite my face, but damn, it was satisfying!
