First your burst dps bard gets ignored for a vod hard as a dps slot (he rages to 54str/con with dual min2 da's or lit2 da's depending on whether we have silver in party or not) with fighter haste boost and many other dps tricks.
You log your monk because you think it's about time to get round to putting those hound wraps on him before his next TR and the hard hound you join fails dismally (why do people let the poor little dogs die?), and you roll a series of 1's while on beholder patrol and get your brains eaten by a mindflayer .
So you log your tod kiter and get to the entrance only to find you were silly enough to forget your end reward on the last run.
Then you log your spellsinger that you plan to TR back into a tank again, and join another hound (this time elite) to finally get that blasted shield hopefully (don't ask how many runs over 2 lives, it's too depressing to mention) only to have someone "forget" to pick up the 4th stone and wait 3 minutes before the mostly mute raid party gets around to charming a replacement dog (by which time we are massively overun).
Ghallanda - i've had a terrible night, and will now go to bed with a tear in my eye.
Thank god tomorrow is Friday, and i will finish work early, log in, and actually make progress! (fingers crossed xD).
p.s. i still love ghallanda, but some nights.....
