The other day I was looking at Kvasira's gear and wondering when I'd ever get out of the Spiked Titansteel Helm and the Titansteel Destroyer.
I don't need the hit rating, for heaven's sake!
And I was commenting to Vialora how I hope that Flame Levi, one of those times I'm in Ulduar-10, drops this neat two-handed weapon that he has.
And usually I'm the only plate DPS in Ulduar-10.
And the other night, Vialora is invited along.
And Flame Levi drops Ironsoul.
And Vialora has more DKP.
But Vialora lives in my house.
And I know how to castrate things.
And make brownies.
Together, those two arguments convinced him that passing so I can get the upgrade was a good idea.
I'm sure my guild thinks I beat him into submission.
But I think 'beat' is too strong a word. Strongly demonic glares and the promise of brownies isn't beating. It's negotiation. It's a compromise.
(In all honesty, Vialora passed out of the goodness of his heart, and the fact that I raid far more often than he does, and would use the weapon more. Also, his equipped weapon was better than my equipped weapon at the time (he is using The Jawbone). So I really do owe him brownies and my very sincere gratitude.)
