To be quite honest, during this latest internet visit I've been having some pretty serious RNG hate. Once again it is time for Brewfest, which certainly excites the collector in me. This is the third year now that I've experienced this holiday, and let's just say that despite the newly implemented holiday boss system (which has a huge thumbs up from me, no lie there), I'm feeling the QQ frustration. Thus far, while running five characters daily, five days in a row now, I have only had one mount drop. That's it. Of course it was the ram and it dropped for my hunter -_- It's incredibly heart breaking to hear of friends who got two or three mounts in one night (on their mains plus various alts), to be in group while someone opens their bags and receives the achievement, and to see that someone opened their bag to receive not one, but two of the weapons. I've been hearing of people getting the direbrew remote x3 on one character, while I have yet to see that in one of my bags (lovely item for alts, thankfully I have this item on my shaman already). I suppose I just feel the stress a bit more knowing that my online time is limited, and that any day now I'll have to go back home again.
To add to my RNG frustrations, ZG is continuing to hold out on both mounts. With the ever looming approach of Cataclysm, this has been stressing me out. I've been farming this place on and off for over two years now, and to have it taken away empty handed is just...harsh. Aside from the mount woes, I'll honestly miss farming the place. I've always loved the jungley atmosphere of STV and ZG, and beating up bosses in a solo fashion as a squishy shaman has just been a very happy thing for me. Zen-like if you will.
Further RNG hate has been coming from our little Disgusting Oozeling friend. I've been farming him on and off for a good while now, over various toons. I wish I would have kept some type of tally for this bugger. I'm now getting to the point now where getting bags no longer has that heart-a-flutter effect, more or less knowing that the bag in question is more than likely just filled with some silver and a plant. I had a small leap of hope today, seeing as though not one, but two bags dropped off of one ooze mob, but alas, nothing but junk...
To top it all off, the Arcane Loops of Anger, which I have been farming for for quite some time now on my priest, finally dropped today!....only to have it snatched by the horrible healer we had. If only I was able to raid to be able to gnab a 251 neck piece out of ICC, then this ordeal wouldn't have been so heartbreaking.
So yes, this is my RNG QQ for the month. I suppose this is the karma backlash for the one good weekened I had where I obtained the Karazhan mount, the baby raptor from ZG, and DFO on my warlock. All my good luck has been spent until half way through Cataclysm. *Hangs head*
/end QQ. Now that I feel a bit better, back to farming ^_^
