There has been so much going on over the long weekend. I hope to space it out and get you all a few good posts for this week.
Lets start with a simi popular topic…. Werds, my name is Samius and I am a Chest Blesser. Well at least for a few more days. 🙂
But what is the deal. There are tons of discussion/s right now about handling blessers and looters. People looting as chests being looted as the blessing is being given. Said people bitting the chest openers head off. Avoiding groups with blessers and so on.
So really what is the big deal? I know as the blesser I took the feats to help me. I wanted to try them out. And I wanted to re-pad my plat total as I am doing a lot of crafting and my plat buffer was dwindling. (And it is working. I am slowing making plat, even when crunching most of my loots.)
Do I have problems when someone opens a chest while I am buffing it? Well yes. If 10 other people are standing around waiting for 1 guy to bless a chest then you can wait also. If your not the group leader or someone blessing chests why are you opening chests anyway?
Now on the flip side do I get “angry” when some one opens a chest on me? Not really. I know above I said yes, and now I am saying no. But here is the deal. People will forget. Get on auto pilot. Or just be in an hurry. It is going to happen. No reasons to get upset.
So what do I do? The only people I show any annoyance to/at are guildies or people in my TR channel. After a few days of me having and using the feats they are mostly trained. And they are also seeing the benefits. So they are now motivated to let me wiggy the chest.
But never in a raid. I will let the raid leader know that I can bless the chests and I will try to do so. If the leader wants to make a big deal then I leave it to them. Although I have taken to try to get ahead of the group or stop fighting and get a blessing while the group is still busy. If I notice that there is one guy opening the chests I might send him a tell letting him know that I can work the chests.
There are tons of reasons to get pissed off. None of them have anything to do with getting any extra +1 loot…
