So let’s see, lots of stuff to update on.
No not really ^_^
I’ve mostly been plugging away at my alts. I got PPP to 81 (as of last night). I had to go *gasp* shadow once I hit 80. I tried killing stuff as Disc, and it was just too painful. Even when I was in Northrend I didn’t have too much of a problem killing stuff as Disc. Man oh man though. The mobs in the new 80-85 zones have a metric buttload of health. After killing 2 mobs I was hearthing back to Org to pick up a 2nd spec.
I felt so sad.
Now usually people pick up a healing or tanking off spec so they can bring utility when they can’t deeps. Here I am upset that I have to get a DPS spec.
Since I leveled Disc through dungeons I never looked into playing Shadow. I knew that it was similar to an affliction warlock, but me being me didn’t bother doing any research before I threw together a spec and ran off to pew pew. To give myself credit I did try to use the dummies to get an idea for button placement. I couldn’t find the level 80 dummies in Org so I got stuck with the level 85s and a bunch of my spells missed. Oh well.
Off to Mt Hyjal!
The first few quests around the starting hub are going well. Getting the rotation down . . . HERB! Feeling pretty good. I moved on to the next part and I am minding my own business, killing twilight peeps when suddenly I’m being hit with moonfire and insect swarm. My first reaction is to bubble and run, which I do, only to die a few steps away.
Ok, no big deal. PvP server. It is expected. Run back to my corpse, rez, re-buff and start to drink . . . MOONFIRE! And I am dead again.
Drak is pretty lopsided for the Horde. The few Alliance players tend to avoid the Hordies mostly due to sheer numbers, unless they are roaming together in a pack, then they will actively chase you. Most people won’t see much world PvP on Drak outside of TB. Not me. If there is world PvP to be found, I will be killed by it. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind world PvP, but when you camp someone for no reason it is BS.
This time I came back to my corpse, looked around and rezzed in a safe place. Flew away to buff and drink. I was more aware now. I kept looking around. I saw no one. Went back to doing my quests. I had to pick up the staff slivers. As I am looting one BOOM! MOONFIRE!
At this point I am PISSED! I haven’t even bothered trying to fight back with this guy. It is around 11 pm at night PST, 1 am server time. It is late and I just wanted to get some quests done before I passed out for the night. This jerk of a druid is holding me up. I asked for help from guildies. My brother parties up with me to come help only to ditch me when TB comes up. Gotta love family right? No one else seemed to be willing to come help at that point in time so I said fuck it and switched to Lyssi.
That’s right bitches, I got my MAIN!
This means war!
I fly out there and have no problem finding the druid. Two dots and the fucker was dead. I waited a bit, flew up (why do people NEVER look up?!?!) killed him again after he rezzed then flew away. To make him think I was done with him. Gave him a few to feel like he was safe, found him again and dotted him up. He tried to get away, he even flew up to escape my range.
HA! I will still get you!
I flew up, dotted him up AGAIN! and took a fall. I took an 85k fall damage hit, but he died.
I popped a healthstone and logged out from a spot watching where my priest was questing.
Logged back into my priest, looked around, no druid. Rezzed, buffed, drank . . . HERB! Went back to questing. Was fine for all of 5 mins then BOOM! MOONFIRE!
Did this moron not have enough?!!?!
I released and logged back into Lyssi. Killed him again. Logged back into PPP when I couldn’t find the druid. As I was running back to my corpse I found him. He was actually standing next to my ghost form.
Did I switch back to Lyssi?
You bet I did!
Killed him again!
Then killed him one more time for effect.
At that point I couldn’t find him anymore. I quickly switched back to PPP to rez. At this point it was almost midnight and I had work in the morning. I hadn’t gotten anything completed. Which of course pissed me off some more.
Stupid Alliance druid.
The next day at work I was telling Cynwise and Psynister how I needed to learn to PvP on my priest. Psynister told me that he was going to finish his “How to level a shadow priest” guide and this worked out perfectly. When I had been busy at work I had gotten behind on my blog reading so I went over to his site and got updated.
Just a plug here. If you aren’t reading these blogs — You are seriously missing out. These two guys are awesome. Totally nice guys who just kick serious ass. Go read them!
So now I have more of an idea of what do to when I get jumped on PPP.
Not that I will remember or anything.
Most likely I will run, die, then go get my main.
It is how I roll.
**Also – You need to say the title like they do on the Jersey shore when it is T-shirt time. No I don’t watch the show. Give me SOME credit!
