Don’t pee on my desk.

So, our hunter quit. 

I saw this coming.  I hold no ill will toward him for the decision, but the execution could have been infinitely better.  For most of the team, this means an inconvience, a bit of uncertianty for next week and possibly even more turbulent farming.  For me, as an officer of recruitment, or in this situation also referred to as, officer of being prepared for shit like this, I was quite not. 

It wasn’t a secret that our hunter was unhappy.  As a naturally empathetic person, I certianly picked up on the little quips he threw out here and there.  I probably should have tried harder to stop this, but, at the same time, if he wasn’t happy, then why should I have prolonged his exposure to the situation?

This does, in fact, leave us quite fucked.  He was a good hunter, of our caliber, which is again, good.  It’ll be difficult to find someone who not only IS a hunter, but also works well with the rest of the boys. 

To me, there was a better exit strategy than this.  Rather than just saying “I’m done” in  forum post, I feel like he should have put in his two weeks.  A lot of people think this is stupid as hell, I know they do, because this is a game.  But it’s also an obligation I take seriously, and fucking over 9 of your friends doesn’t curry favor with any version of karma you believe in. 

My friend asked me, if this is just a fit, a little tantrum to make a point, would I take him back.  The decision is not wholly my own, but in my mind, there’s a clear distinction between the type of person you seriously raid with, and that cares about the group over themselves, and someone who’s a little more selfish.  So my answer is no.  I’d rather find someone who wants to be there, for the guild, rather than for themself.  All for one and one for all.
