Facerolling

July 29, 2014

So, what do you do when there’s no new content and you’d kinda rather be doing anything else?

Alt raid!

Wait … what? Three days of raiding just isn’t enough I guess. But how can I say no when everyone else wants to do it? Of course, stupid me doesn’t just say ‘ok sure whatever my warlock is the best geared alt’ … nooooooooooooo … I have to be an idiot and volunteer to tank. Apparently I got my head bashed in too many times in previous tanking endeavors.

So I ran Kirgra through ToT as dps with tank as her loot choice, got a few upgrades, bought a valor trinket, got her gems, enchants, glyphs, flasks and food, and called her ready. Oh, and stole the heirloom 2H axe from poor Oslee. Ok, and got some tips and a new macro or two from Schriko because he rocks.

So, Saturday came, and off we went!

Oh, hey, look, Don is dead! It’s just like a normal raid!

This is the only screenshot though because, well, I was too busy pushing other buttons.

Prinnie came and healed along with Kash. Yes, just two healers, but Bombelina is pretty geared, and Shudal’s monk tank was tanking our normals for awhile so he is really geared. We got the first wing down in the two hours we raided.

I don’t remember how many times I died. I know there were plenty of times I came close, and we wiped once on Sha. That fight is a lot easier as tank than it is as anything else though. I think we wiped on Protectors once too. Yeah … that one I would rather be dps. So much things! I’m pretty sure I died on Norushen as well. I got warforged boots from Immerseus though so hopefully this week I will be more durable.

Wow. Just …. Wow!

Up until now, as far as new models go, I was like … hmm. Yeah cool, they look better than they did before. But THIS …

My first reaction was ‘omg I am switching mains, my hunter is going to look SO.AWESOME AND.CUTE!’

My second reaction, was ‘race change! Tauren paladin!’

I mean really, think about it … I have a male belf DK, and 3 male belf paladins. On the same server pair. I’ve got plate-wearing male belf covered four ways to Sunday. Surely I can change one of them, possibly even the main one, right? (I get attached to my characters, changes are hard.) But man … I am super tempted. She’s so adorable!

and Victory

Thankfully, we did extend the raid and did not let Thok escape. We had one really frustrating wipe at less than 1% … we’re talking like 5M health left on the bad boy. But we got back up and kept trying until finally we had enough people alive long enough to get out of that fire phase and have enough dps left to get him down.

We’re skipping Blackfuse for now and moving on to Paragons so … off to study!

Wait. Here, let me zoom that in so you can get a better look at the misery.

Two blanking percent. TWO! The dang yeti managed to take out me, Kash, and I think one other person, so with two healers down … sigh. If only I had bubbled or hit lay on hands when I was in the air. I would have survived and perhaps kept others up long enough to get the kill. I swear, I really think I am too old and my reaction times are too slow to be counted on as a heroic raider. We should have had him down there. Stupid fight. RAWR.
