What do you do when the raid is over for the night and your mains are bored of heroics? How about running heroics on your crappily geared long-abandoned original DK that hasn’t been touched since about the time Uldy was released? If this sounds like a good time, follow me …
I checked out my RealID list and noticed that my friend Lyssi from DoTs & HoTs had managed to drag herself away from Dragon Age long enough to hit ICC. Finally … a good time to log on over there and be annoying! So I log onto Arelin and send her a whisper … “I r on yur server!” :p
Yes, it hurt very much to type like that. We chatted a bit and eventually she offered up an invite. There were 11 people on … the 10 raiding plus me. So I pretty much left them alone to finish their raid and I … queued up for a random. After all, how bad could it be? I looked at the gear … hm. Two pieces of T7, a couple of Naxx epix, some blues from heroics and quests, green trinkets, and the sigil from the DK starting zone. Ouch.
Got DTK. Got a Kingslayer tank, a couple of mediocre dps (i.e. dps on the same level as me), and a shaman wearing BoAs. This guy was good. He pulled the entire room before Trollgore .. after politely asking the shammy if it was ok with him. I got ‘Oh Novos’ and ‘Better Off Dred’ … and at the end, I got ‘Heroic: Drak’Tharon Keep’ … omg I’m a noob! But it went so well, that I decided to Death Gate to Acherus and do a quick respec to something a little more up-to-date .. and without Desecration. Seriously … it may be a PvP realm but I ain’t doin pvp.
Queued up again and got VH. Similar story, although this time I at least outdamaged one of the dps. (He came with the tank and spent a good portion of the dungeon … not dpsing. His dps was way above mine, but I beat him on damage because of all the standing around he did.) I got ‘Lockdown’ and ‘Heroic: Violet Hold’ at the end. Seriously … I TANKED NAXX on this toon, and never completed all the heroics? W.T.F.?!?
Well, by this time the gang were done in ICC and running a random of their own. So after they finished that I got in a group with them to run one more. Orangeslice was tanking, Lyssi healing on her tree, and a couple of dps from the guild. I hopped into vent with them and we headed off to HoL. First boss drops a plate dps belt and I am totally laughing about what a noob I am … because … it was an upgrade. >.<
Wait, back up. Let’s say that again. A blue .. dropped in a heroic .. and it was AN UPGRADE! And you know what? It was AWESOME! It felt so great to actually have a REASON to run heroics again! And the folks in SR are so nice .. we all had a huge laugh when my ghoul pulled a bunch of slag from the other side of the room and killed me and the mage. *sigh* I guess being a Kingslayer doesn’t exclude me from also being a Deathtard on occasion, eh?
Soo … that’s finished .. want to guess what comes next?

Hm .. problem here. Nice loincloth but too many other clothes.
Good, now … put the loincloth back on and flex.
Wait, something’s missing. Where are my goggles? They make all the difference, you know.
I expect to see comments from a couple of other bloggers out there who play belfs. You know who you are. hehe
