I want to run Ascension Chamber.
I have never run Ascension Chamber. I have TRed twice trying to get all the sigils, but am not really a grind-missions-sort of player. Imagine the phun times and great oldies when I finally....FINALLY got that last sigil piece. I felt like I had achieved a victory, a victory over evil panda overlords heck-bent on taking over our North American collectable plate production in a sick scheme to take over the world (PST and I will detail how they plan to do this. It's nefarious, to be sure)
I know Ascension Chamber is a tough mission. I know this. I would like to learn it. A gentle soul allowed me into his litany group when I told him I had never run it and spent 30 seconds total the entire mission laying out what was going on, and I led kill count all but one time (and that's because he got back from being AFK). I am only looking for the same consideration for Abbot.
As some of you may say, "there's an LFG up almost every night saying ascension chamber, know it or pst if you don't", and I would respond that you are right. While I harbor no ill will toward the people running that, it has become apparent I wronged them in some way because I get ignored every time. Rather than whine about that I would like to offer this heartfelt request that someone run Ascension with me. I am not the best player, most in my guild would say I strive to be a functional one, but I try hard and dangit I got moxie. Thinking about this, though, led to the following dead horse upon which I now resolutely grasp the stick and thwack with much haste:
At some point you didn't know the mission either. I know for some raids and stuff you sometimes don't feel like teaching a group full of n00bs, and I will be the first to admit I am probably the cause of said apprehension because of my iffy playstyle and off color jokes, but thats a FACT. The other day after the new packs came out, literally the day AFTER they came out, someone had an LFG up that said "Know it or don't bother". This made me sad, then confused, then hungry (it was around lunch). I am NOT asking everyone to take along a newbie every time they run something to teach them the mission. I AM saying cut ME some slack because I am putting it down in text on the internet, making it meaningful. If you have 5/11 people who know all there is to know about the quest, including the devs motivations and what they had for dinner every night while coding said levels, and taking one person along can completely ruin the entire thing, maybe the problem isn't all the newbie.
If, however, this seems to not be what you would like to do, have the common courtesy to not waste someone's time and at SOME point decline them. Yes, before you ask, I had moved on to do something else, but still, when it takes your group 45 minutes to fill, you can spend one second telling me no or calling me a racial slur or whatever. If you are THAT busy while filling a group.... I won't finish that sentence.
Anyway, I wanna run ascension. Let's make this happen. Thanks for reading
