Blacksaw, aka Gleesaw, Ballz, Dicksaw, keeper of the glee. Blacksaw joined us during the Black Temple/Sunwell era. Sakasein was our current resto druid at the time, another major HoF candidate. Druid knowledge and skill is passed down, from one druid, to another. From Sakasein, to Blacksaw to Lar…Tens.

Sakasein and the rest of us really had to grind the shit out of Blacksaw. Most don’t realize, but Blacksaw came very close a number of times to failing his trial with us. He was just doing so poorly, survivability wasn’t there, he wasn’t mashing his buttons well enough, but he did have one thing going for him, his drive, his potential. Sakasein convinced us to let him work with Black some more. You see, DJ healer bootcamp is just like real bootcamp. We will grind you until there is almost nothing left and see what you are made of. We’ll then help build your skillset, your confidence, until you are a beast of a healer. If you’re good, we make you great. Strong healing has always been the cornerstone of DJ.

But Blacksaw had potential, so we worked with him for a long time. He never gave up, Sakasein didn’t, so we didn’t. Turns out he became one of the guild’s best healers and officers.

I moved him to DJP officer, to Sand Officer where he cleaned out lots of sand. He helped with recruitment, processing apps, keeping everything running so I wasn’t overburdened doing a million different things.

Blacksaw mentored a lot of the apps as an officer. He outlined expectation for them over Vent, policies, procedures, was always available to help them out. Many of the solid raiders we have now are thanks to him.

He’s now one of my good, real life friends after becoming an officer. He’s come to my yearly Sausagefest(food & beer) parties where I invite DJs to attend. And like the others, he retired from raiding after his son was born.

Now we’re playing Star Wars and I’ll be healing his Jedi ass.

When you think of Blacksaw you also remember him yelling ‘Fuck!’ a lot. And yelling at the perpetual app: Larin.

This is a guy who genuinely earned his spot as a raider, as an officer. Hard work paid off and he’s been voted by you into the HoF.
