Ok. So i was just in a Shroud and wow just wow.
So i logged in, checked my quest timers and noticed a couple shrouds both with no healers. So i figured i would join even though i knew i would have to wait a little bit for another healer. Shroud was really slow filling that last healer spot and the leader said he would start asking people in tells. Being curious i checked Who to see if there were any free ones and there werent very many. So a couple minutes after i was asked if i could solo heal it. I wasnt really happy with being the only healer so i asked if we could wait for another one. Also i hate throwing singles in raids :/ mostly cause alot of people have fom boots or already have poison/fire and say something after i throw it. Everyone understood and some said they would feel better with more than 1 anyway. So a few minutes later we got the other healer and we were off to send Harry back to Shavarath where he belongs
So we are on part 1 and portals are going down fairly quickly i wouldnt say one rounder by any means but under 2 easily. Halfway through i notice the other healer taking some damage not alot but he is no where to be seen. So since healing in part 1 isnt really a high priority unless you have a Suicidal barb i went to look for him. So i find him seconds later standing face first against a wall what i can only assume to be waiting for a cavity search. We finish part 1 without any problems(duh!) and are off to loot the chests. After we are done the healers says "I go relog" claiming he couldnt move. So i shook it off and hoped he would be able to be all ready by the time we hit part 4.
We decide to take out the trash in part 2 while he is gone and all things going smoothly. He makes it back, loots the chests and comes down to south central. Someone drags and we start prepping them. Things are going ok, people arent staying together so masses arent working but not a problem. Then i look and notice i am the only one healing...again. And sure enough the healer is right next to me facing the wall again. Anyway we do it no problems.
So we are done loot the chests and wait for him. Still waiting.... still waiting. He then says again "I go relog" and at that point we are a little peeved and deicide to start part 3 without him. A few people didnt know their puzzles no problem we got them done. One death dont ask me how, must have been bad luck but we got it done and then the healer logs back in and we loot the chests. While the healer is getting back to us he zones in and says he doesnt know his puzzle(we completed part 3 at this time) and we have to send him a guide. He comes to the party, loots his chests and i tell him there is a shrine back there (he was at 3/4ths sp) but ignored me.
On part 4 i got Displacement idk if others did too but there was very little damage to heal clearing trash. Saves my sp cause it looks like i am the only healer. So we zone in(healer included) and sure enough its time for his hobby of watching paint dry. Think the leader is nervous cause he is telling everyone to get behind the intimtank and clarifying i am the only healer. So the blades are coming in and we decided to get out. 2 people back out and are heading right for me, just asking for me to get owned by meteors. But i wasnt too scared of that cause i have enough health to take them but we lose one person after we pull out so not terrible. Heading into round 2 apparently the paint has not yet dried. Melees go for round 2, blades are in and Harry is finished off in the blades. We go to loot the chests and i dont think i need to tell you what happened next but i will anyway. Healer said his catch phrase relogs (this point i hoped he was kicked cause he hasnt done any work) and comes back. This time he shrines and i actually think he might help. So far he has looted parts 1-4 without throwing a single heal or attacked a single mob. Let's see if he has what it takes for a perfect Shroud. The leader asks people to help me heal part 5(not me) and i am given pots. Was skunked on Ingredients also.
Part 5 we go! Get to the pool i throw masses and hit everyone with a fom and things are looking up. Healer on the right wall in the middle and i lose what little faith i had left in him. We go to kill Fire and he says "Wait! i go relog". He logs out and melees are still beating on fire knowing he wont help. Harry is here and the healer is still no where to be found, finally comes back halfway through. We are going pretty good although 2 died while i was drinking but we finished. Got everyone all raised up, had to drink a couple pots but they were given to me. People who were leaving left and we got the completion for those who wanted it. I got scales so i am all happy.
But i would just like to say thank you to everyone in that group. I was grinding it on my melee the other day and lost interest all together. Would like to thank everyone who donated pots for part 5 and sticking together even with a piking healer. That was the most fun i had in a while and would even like to thank the other healer for not doing anything so i could prove to myself yet again that i can solo heal the shroud(yes i know it isnt that hard). I have faith in pug raiding yet again, even after i won a roll on the Glacier Bracers and it being passed to an arcane claiming divines dont need it.
