Unfortunately for the past two weeks I have disconnected on almost every boss in Naxx, which is frustrating to say the least. Infuriating? Depressing? All of the above.
I always used to disconnect on 4H when the first meteor came down, but whatever they did to Naxx to "optimise" it has made it absolutely unplayable for me. Obviously as a dedicated raider, the prospect of not being able to do Naxx anymore is rather upsetting. I only have a couple of upgrades that I still need, but mostly it's just the idea of having to sit out of raiding AGAIN. It's so boring. I really hope this week is better.
It's not my mods, I know this for certain, but running two raid UIs at once is probably pushing my luck a little.
Luckily most of the info has been pre-gathered, I've already taken a lot of comparison screenshots showing how both mods display things like debuffs etc. Once I have my bonafide raid test sorted it will just be a case of putting everything together in a meaningful way. So it won't take long, it's just Naxx's weird prejudice against me that is holding things up.
Last week I was booted from every single boss, and several times in between, excluding the bosses that I logged off for entirely so I didn't mess up Immortal for my team. I missed out on "Shocking!" - curses. The only boss I didn't disconnect on was KT. We finally got Immortal, despite chronic disconnection problems plaguing me and another healer, random disconnects for other people over the course of the night, and another healer being severely ill - but still soldiering on. What a team!
Still, I think I would relinquish my title and rewards if someone could just give me a guarantee that I could stay online for Naxx. It's like Felmyst all over again - but an entire instance. Makes me a very sad panda.
On a brighter note, shortly I'll be jumping into work on strats for Ulduar (mostly for my guild, but I'm sure I'll end up posting them here too). That is something I have been looking forward to ever since we stopped doing Sunwell. I'm itching to Photoshop me some diagrams...
I've also been super busy with a bunch of guild-related work, annnnnd I'm going back to my second RL job soon, so I have a bit to juggle. Lots of irons in the fire.
But I really love being this busy! :)
I'm really looking forward to finishing this part of the experiment though, so if Naxx goes well this week, I'll be able to finish my comparison post. If not, I may be able to test it on Sartharion, but I'll just have to wait and see how things go. If all else fails, I will go do a 10 man to test it out.
