So this is the obligatory “I screwed up globally”, thanks to a failure to read. And making assumptions. Yay me.

So I was tooling around getting Eastern Kingdoms candy buckets yesterday, when I get a whisper from Shankm of Legendary, asking if I could tank ZA.

Well, our guild has ZA on the schedule for Tuesday night, so I say no.

He asks if ZA will be reset by then.

 Well, I don’t know. It’s Sunday, our raid is set for Tuesday, ZA is on a fast timer reset… well, heck, we have a new Calander built in now, so I’ll check.

I open the Calander, set the filter to “raid resets”, and see each day of the clander fill up with raid names. I see a Z in Monday, click on Monday to open it further, see the Zxxxxx in there, and go “Okay, cool, it resets Monday.”

Yeah, you know where this is going.

I talked to Ordeal, who was inviting for the raid, and said, “Sure, I can go, as long as this is going to be pretty quick. I cannot do a 3 hour run, I have stuff I have to do tonight.”

“Okay, no problem.”

So we go into ZA, and we start the timed events. We quickly breeze through Eagle, Bear and Dragonhawk, but the timer just runs out when we are downing the Lynx. So, three out of four chests for the Timed. Not bad at all, I’m pretty pleased.

I get a whisper from Doodlebug while I’m there, “Hey, is ZA canceled for Tuesday?”

“Nope! It resets on Monday, so I’ll be good.”

“Oh…. oh, okay. Ummm… ok.”

A little while later, someone else asked me the same thing in a whisper, while we are downing Hex Lord… and I replied again, “Nope, it’ll reset on Monday.”

Then late last night, Nasirah whispers me to ask who is going to tank ZA, since we are short one. I ask if Graimerin canceled, and she says, “No, but you were in there on Windshadow today.”

So I get huffy, and say for the third time, “No, it resets on Monday. See, you can check it yourself by going into the Calander, set the filter to raid resets, and see when everything resets. See, I go in, set the filter, go to Monday….”

….

WTF!?!?!

“And I see that it says that Zul’Gurub resets on Monday.”

“And Zul’Aman will reset on Wednesday.”

……

“So, apparently, I am a dumbass that fails2readcomprehension.”

……….

“Hey, can anyone tank ZA on Tuesday? Oh, yeah? You can? Thanks Squirrelz….”

“DAMNIT!!!!!”

    Hey, I said it last night, but I’ll say it again. I saw Windshadow in ZA last night and thought about the Tuesday run scheduled. I looked at the calendar and saw Zx resetting on Monday and thought everything was cool. I blame the trolls who can’t seem to get Zul out of their heads. Maybe they should call the Ghostbusters. /shrug

    Either way, I’ll be looking into getting my druid’s talents set up. No worries.

    -laughs- Oh, dear, BBB! That’s not good! I must admit, however, that I’ve done stuff like that before, or just forget what day of the week it was, and screwed things up that way instead.

    Hope the normal group will be fine without you!

    I prefer the Doodle comic artist, m’self. Then again, I’ve never played with any of you wonderful, crazy people, so I’m probably just a noob. I can haz free lifetime sub to WoW to tool around with you guyz?

    Heck, I’ll tank anything you want me to if I don’t have to pay the dadgum subscription. :P

    Ooops.

    Still you can still do Zul’Farrak in the meantime ;)

  6. Shankm says:

    Heh, I’m only reading this now, I didn’t know I was famous (or infamous as the case may be)

    Sorry Wind, we didn’t mean to screw you over for your run :(
    But aren’t you glad they worked in a calendar in the interface for resets and all that?! :D
    Thanks for comin’ btw :)
