Monday raiding - ouch!
It was cranky pants Monday. Probably because we were missing a healer and our star tank, and we me and Gutsy thought we'd try to 2 heal heroic spine and it was OMG awful (absolutely no mana after 2 tendons), and that's with a 20% nerf! We ended up doing it on normal, and with 2 healers that doesn't leave much room for error. Tout came in for Hwired, and we the attempts were messy, but at least it was done.
Then there was Madness. By then everyone had enough and didn't want to make too many mistakes, but we wiped and wiped - tanks died, the elementium bolt blew us up, and people were not killing the lumpy blister things which made it SOOO much harder to heal. We ended up having to call it because people didn't want to do it anymore. Lush was healing and his healing was quite good.
Which meant time for a BG. Nothing like a bit of good ol' PVP to make you feel better. Az, Lush and Tout joined us.
We had AB as our random BG. My favourite! Unfortunately, we lost by a small margin as we lost our 3rd base towards the end and people kind of lost the plot. Anyway after that it was 11pm so everyone went to bed, and me and Sev decided to do a few Arenas.
Warrior and Shaman. Ugh. Warrior anything is always a bad combination for us - wait, no Warrior as part of a double DPS combo is not too bad (unless it's a DK) because at least we can try to kill them. The damn shaman has tremor totem, so fears are useless, they purge off all my hots and innervate, the warrior stuns and slows and interrupts Sev as he's casting... and we can't burst anything to get them down fast enough. So that was a bad start.
Hunter/rogue. Much better combination. Interestingly, I was just talking to Sev about what it would be like to fight Roshii and Souglyy in an arena match, and he was saying it would be easy, as we have to chase down the hunter and kill them and ignore the rogue or cc them. And then suddenly we had a rogue hunter combination who were good with their cc's on me, but their burst wasn't enough to take us down. Pets can be annoying too. But not that hunter's one, fortunately.
Priest and Mage combo twice. Oh the poor priest, I thought it was Disc, but it turned out to be shadow, which was good because they oom so quick. We killed them twice and Sev said he didn't think they would be very happy with us. No sirree, I bet they weren't.
Anyway, it feels like everyone is sick of Dragon Soul. A shame really, because I would really like to get Heroic Spine down. Oh well, even if nobody else is keen, I'm always good for it.
