There is no such thing as a quick dungeon run, Mat thinks. Anytime someone asks for this in a PUG it is jinxed, it seems.
As was the case this morning in Grim Batol.
Apologetic healer. Okay. But about five or more wipes? (Mat lost count.) Was the healer stoned? Mat isn't sure. She didn't bring a drug test.
At one point, the tank, DK, said to us all, "You're on my list."
Mat hears Comic Book Guy's voice in her head.
He proceeded to tell us that he keeps track of players and servers.
Mat knew she had nothing to apologize for; she was more than pulling her weight, hexing, binding, and damaging her way through.
She whispered tank something about doing her best or some such nonsense, and he says to her, "No you're cool you're on my good list."
So Mat imagines, somewhere in the world is a scratch-pad note that says Mataoka Whisperwind enh shaman cool (is this a good thing?).
Always better to be nice than naughty when someone's keeping score.
Postscript: those were some hard-won Valor Points.
