Adventure One: Tank is 226, and DH. and squishy, man, squishy. The key is a 15 SOA, and on my main, a 248 disc priest with great gear, even four sockets, great secondary stats, you name it, and I have healed an 18 SOA timed. Of course in a good group.
First boss, there are three deaths. Why? Well, in the 18 I healed np, there were three deaths alright, but the entire run, and on this, the 15, these guys are a little shaky on mechanics and what to do. They don’t move when they should. They take avoidable damage, sometimes excessively. Not that everyone ought to know what to do on every fight, but, just saying…
Now the first lieutenant is up. And we are in discord. We skip the lieutenant, and after the boss I say, um… I need the anima power. Of course, with the three deaths on the first boss fight in mind. And two more deaths now on the second boss (maybe, I forget exactly, but my impression of these poor monkeys is fading fast). Blame me, whatever, but I healed this like any other SOA, and these guys were just not up to snuff… Anyhow, the tank says, we are skipping the lieutenant. Now, this is not good in my experience, and I say that I am not a fan. I mean, I have worked with people who literally shouted at meetings with HR people. But I am a little more subtle. I am not going to shout but this tank is not very swift.
Anyhow, we get to Coldheart, and skip that one too. Now we are up to about twelve deaths, and the 226 tank is skipping. I guess I could just pull “accidentally,” but I just go with it. So we get to the last boss. These guys don’t spread, and minus the ability to run, I am spam healing shadow mend to keep these guys up, and spam healing them nonstop without a hope in heck of moving to get any mana orbs. We wipe with the boss at 44% and me at 2% mana.
Guess how this ends?
Adventure 2. An 18 NW. I say in chat when a warrior drops before we start, 'Get a boomy." Boomies can innervate, and pump. And they are great to PI. This is true, really. Well, the last boss down, and this boomy had done less damage than the tank. Doh! We did not time either. But I guess I have to start checking on who these puggers who waste their keys are inviting. Said boomy had literally played all specs, mostly resto druid, but as dps, had done only two other keys as boomy, one a +2 and the other a +11. Lol.
Adventure 3. A NW 17. And I have healed a few two chest keys on this–17 NWs. The tank proceeds on the first boss to run up on the platform during the fight, saying, Follow me. And then he gets 51 stacks of Necrotic–having pulled the pack of trash there (and hopefully being aware of what Necrotic is all about), and promptly dies. Mage says, F this, and leaves.
Any thoughts? Would you like to share your “funnest runs” of the day?
