Haha, my guild has a problem member that is completely oblivious to the fact that he's being carried, and even got mad when we gave loot to someone more deserving even though he won the roll (and won a trinket earlier that should've went to someone more deserving).

Edit - "Don't yell at me I'm new at this" <- not a good excuse in a raid.

So... c is completely wrong? Or just not as right as "none of the above?"

I'm still distracted by the lack of frizzy hair on the Lore...

It is 20% frizzier this week though so we know given time it'll be back to it's former friz level.

Don't know what has happened to you Lore but that was the funniest weekly marmot so far. Maybe amounts of xmas food and lack of raiding :)
Maybe less hair = better cooling ;)


I can feel on a rested bonus and well fed buff myself.
conlcusion: holiday works!

yeah, i think it was full of humor, decent editing (audio was de-synchronized from video for me anyone else?) and the raid leading info is 100% true. I help raid lead my guild when i'm on to give our GM/RL a break now and then, and it's good to know that you're all having fun, we're a big happy family, etc etc, but sometimes, you need to just say "dude, get your shit together"

I'd say it's the lighting ;-)

Really nice video with solid advice.

Amazing weekly marmot. That was brilliant. I have to agree to those raid leader advices.. they all make sense in their special way or whatever you wanna call it.
And oh well, i don't get your preview:confused: (no native english, ty)

I think its excellent that you've taken the intiative to address issues that are relative to alot of guilds and groups. I'd like to see a Weekly Marmot on building beginner raiding guilds and learning to work together as a team and what fights help the most to round out a beginner team. great work, looking forward to seeing more :D

P.S. i'd love to see a Marmot on Holy Pally FAQs much like Aliena's Priest FAQ's.

I do have to say, most professional looking Marmot so far. Nice editing, looked great and very informative. So yeah, agreeing with whoever said it was the best one so far.
And thank you for the comment about it being about a bunch of friends getting together to kill dragons. Too many people don't seem to realise that this is still a game and it is still meant to be fun. It's why, yeah, I'm not in the most progressed guild in the world (Although we were amongst the first on our realm to down Saurfang on 10 man)
Also, I notice a guitar in the background. Can we expect a guitar solo in the next Marmot? :D

Wonderful video. Great laugh on parts.
My guild is slowly moving from casual to more raid oriented, and definitely some great information to pass on to everyone.

Well I would say the best teambuilding exercises are the Keepers in Ulduar.

Has someone been taking video editing tips from the Philip DeFranco show?

Great Marmot video, as always :)

Very nice video, Lore. Definitely the funniest and most amazing marmot so far, keep it up and you'll beat Aliena's marmots! Not to mention that the raid leading videos are quite helpful to me, as I've recently been assigned to be the raid leader for my guild.

Can't wait to see next weeks!

Best video thus far.

Reminds me of those videos where someone is narrating and a guy in the video named Jimmy is speaking to the voice of God.

I was thinking maybe Lore could wear a bikini next time while holding a blow torch and it would be a really cool video.

In other more serious news, I liked this one, good job Lore.

Lore...this is my first post on tankspot, but my guild always uses your site's videos and we love them! Thanks for your hard work.

On the matter at hand...why's it have to be a dps? (Granted it usually is...) We have at least two healers who liked to get up close and personal with the yeti.

I enjoy watching your e-blog each week Lore. It is a relief to see that many guilds big and/or small do suffer from the same problems.

Hopefully at some stage you could cover the impact of players who regularly want to main change. I realise guilds with large rosters wont suffer much when this happens, but on smaller tighter units it can cause many problems with numerous flow on effects.

Thanks again for the top notch work tankspot team!

Every guild leader and raider needs to watch this.

Maybe he got charged by a Yeti whilst he was reading a text that just came in :eek:

Great videos - both strategy and podcasts. Keep em coming :)

I got ran over by the yeti on the last ToGC raid before x-mas. I miraculously survived though (gogo EH set). Then the raging yeti killed the pally tank (I wasn't tanking heh). And I picked up the Yeti afterwards (good thing they hotfixed him to be tauntable now) and looked like the hero. Until after when we were sitting around talking about what the hell just happened.
