"It just wasn't meant to be, Ironavie," said Guvan, the Priest trainer, with a regretful look on his face. "Your journey is over."
"No, NO," cried Ironavie vehemently, wiping the tears from her cheeks with the back of her hand. "I was liking this challenge. I can't believe it's finished just like that."
A soft voice whispered in her head. "You should just continue on this character with the old Ironman challenge - the one where it was OK to die. Less stress that way." Ferricat's gentle voice was a gentle purr, reassuring, comforting. "I hope it wasn't because I distracted you whilst talking..."
"No, it wasn't," Ironavie reassured Ferricat. "I was happy to hear from you. I was excited to be able to chat to you!"
"What happened anyway?"
"Oh, I was trying to kill High Chief Bristlelimb, and I ended up pulling a second mob, and I was trying to get range on it and backed into another mob - too many mobs. I was thought I was ok and then suddenly my health was 20 and I forgot to use my Gift of the Naaru..." Ironavie sniffled. "Oh well."
So poor Ironavie got 5 hours of playtime and only got to level 13. I have to admire that person who made it to 81 already!
Playing a pure DPS class... my god. I forgot that I couldn't heal myself, well not much! It really is so different, when before I could heal myself and run away, and I got carried away because I could actually kill things relatively quickly as a DPS, that I forgot that the tradeoff for that would be poor survivability.
So what should Ironavie do now? Delete? Start over? Continue on in the old Ironman fashion with just levelling in whites and greys? Before anyone says anything - no I am not going to level her like a normal alt because I don't do normal. So I guess it boils down to Delete, Start over or Continue. I look forward to hearing what people think!
