Last night we got the twin dragons down, but did not get Ascendant Council even after many many tries. Of course, losing an experienced tank and raid leader, really, really hoses a raid group.
On a side note, the number of people that have no patience, really amazes me. Last night we had a tank asked if anyone wanted to run a random. I said yes on my priest, switching, and by the time I switched over, he has already queued for, and was in an instance. Then later someone asked if we had room in the raid for them, otherwise they would just log, and by the time I pulled up the calendar (literally 5 seconds later), and was about to type “let me check” they had already logged off. We’re talking in under 30 seconds to a minute in both cases. I don’t get it.
