I’ve been flexing my tanking muscles lately in 5-mans.  It’s not really something I do often, but the lure of rare pets and mounts in the bonus bag is too strong to resist.

So I get into a group, End Time.  I’m tanking (warrior), paladin healer, druid, mage, warrior dps.  First thing I notice is that the healer is dead.  Looks like I got a wipe group who didn’t inspire confidence in their first tank, whom I’ve apparently just replaced.  First boss is Sylvanas and the healer and the body of their first tank are laying there with the druid casting rez.  I see the healer is tagged as a ghost, but they don’t take the rez, probably because they didn’t get it while zoning or whatever.  This prompts the druid to remark “I rezzed the moron.”  Healer fires back “ur the moron i have mass rez debuff.”  Sure enough, the healer had a fresh mass rez debuff, but the druid wasn’t casting that.  Yeah, this isn’t an ominous sign of things to come at all!

Sylvanas dies easily, as does Jaina next, without any problems or further complaints from anybody.  So it’s on to Murozond.  The druid proceeds to Hibernate the wrong trash mob (typically one of the two Suppressors, he hits one of the Wardens with it) and roots another, neither of which are the mob that has been correctly marked as being the one to CC.  We get that sorted out, and I pull, and we kill the trash.  I start to turn around to look at the next group of trash, and it’s already been pulled without CC on any of them.  Who dies first?  The druid of course.  I die as well, but the other three manage to kill off the trash.

We get rezzes, and turn our attention to Murozond.  I ask if everybody is ready, at which point, the druid is already in stealth cat mode up the boss’ ass.  Healer says go, and before I can even hit my Charge button, the boss is engaged and the druid is dead.


Yeah, he was an unhappy asshat of a cat.  He keeps up his complaining through the entire fight.  Of the things to complain about during the rest of the fight, maybe the fact that the mage wasn’t hitting Time Warp soon enough was a legit complaint, but most of it is just “YOU SUCK” being spammed endlessly.  We win of course.  I point out that we killed the boss, and that he’s the one that pulled, not me, but he’s so fucking wharrgarrbl’d out of his mind over the whole thing that I doubt it mattered.  Then comes the loot.  The agility trinket dropped, which he of course needs on immediately.  Know who needed on it next?  Keep in mind our group is two warriors, a paladin, a mage, and the druid.  The paladin needs on it of course, which triggers another druid swearing outburst, and I just laugh and drop from the group.

I got a Giant Sewer Rat pet in my tank bag for putting up with those guys.


Two weeks in one shot

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 5, 2009 by Korby

I know, I’m like 2 weeks behind on keeping this updated.  In a nutshell, Korby and Innoruuk are both done with the Argent valient quests, having become a champion of every city.  Aaeru is 67, just learned basic flying on her thanks to today’s patch.  Did a handful of heroics on Innoruuk, replaced most of his greens with BoE blues that dropped.  Korby got a BoE Uld25 head, and legs from the new Trial of the Champion 5 man heroic.  Also built Jeeves today, but I think I’ll still carry around some Scrapbots because the 2 hour cooldown on Jeeves is kind of annoying.  Been diligently performing gylph research on Dalkado every day, so I have probably half or more of the minors.  I guess daily dungeons are something I’ll be doing again now, since I get two Triumphs from it.  I’m also 30 Conquests away from buying the chest piece, so that’s a goal as well for me.

One more to go

Got Innoruuk to 79, doing only quests in the lower half of Northrend (Borean, Dragonblight, Howling, and Grizzly).  I’m getting the feeling I’m just going to have to bite the bullet on this and buy his basic flying now, instead of waiting for the patch.  Yeah, I know it’s only like 200g more now, and I am making money easily now that I’m doing the Argent Tournament quests, it still just bugs me to spend money that I don’t have to.

Also hit up a DTK PUG and got him a Troll Butcherer.  The group was entirely Paladins and Death Knights, and somehow, amazingly, I was the only one that needed it.

Northrend and Outland redux

Thanks to the bonfire quest reset overnight, I got to do them again for Aaeru.  It’s amazing how much having the flight paths helped, since I only died 4 times in Northrend and 10 in Outland this time, compared to yesterday’s much higher numbers.  Level 42 now after the 2nd trip.

Had an amusing awkward moment when I logged on today, as a guild member got on me for a wry sarcastic post I made on the forums in regards to the fact that quite a lot of his IRL friends are in the guild.  He thought I was saying that we didn’t want them anymore or whatever, so I defused that fire, and then we all went on alts to Mana-Tombs where the only thing that dropped was mage loot, so lucky me, haha.

Ding 71! Also went through a pair of dungeons and got a pair of new daggers that I can use at levels 72 and 73. I also respec’d for my 51-point Fury talent, so I can dual wield 2-handers when I’m not grinding out the exp. I was doing a sustained 560-600 dps on the lvl 70 training dummy, compared to my 400ish before the respec.
