Bringing The Pain

Last night we went back into Mount Hyjal, and again I went in as dps. We had already killed Rage Winterchill the week before so we moved right on to Anetheron, the site of my previous dps record where I finally broke 1000 dps on a single target boss fight.

Yet again we had a good melee group with an Enhancement Shaman 2 rogues an arms warrior (me) and a Ret Pally (Yes a Ret Pally, we really brought a retlol to MH). During the trash I had a whale of a time beating down the Shadowy Necromancer then hitting everything in sight. In my exuberance I occasionally ended up over aggroing on some of the trash, but since I was finally in full plate again for the first time in I don't know how long (no more Mail or Leather for me) I had decent armor and over 12k buffed health (14k with a shout) so even if I over aggroed on an Abomination I could survive with a bit of healing. This also meant that I could pull mobs off the ranged and healers without dieing, something I never dared to do before.

Anyway my fun with the trash over out comes Anetheron. Now as melee my job here is very simple I find a spot where I wont catch too many swarms and Dee Pee Ess. As melee you cant dps the infernals cuz you'll die so the only thing to do is lay the smack down on the boss. And the fight was going great ... until the infernal tank dies that is, then all hell broke loose and a wipe happened.

So I get to have fun with the trash all over again and it's boss time ... again. This time everything goes great and we down him with little problem and what little problem we did have didn't involve me since my job is so damn easy. After cooling down and distributing the loot P mentioned to me that he had read on my blog that I was over joyed at breaking 1000 dps on this boss last time, I told him that this was correct.

P: "So you would be happy to learn that you did over 1300 dps this time?"

Me: "Your kidding right?"

P: "Nope you did over 1300 dps."

Me: "Wow"

Me: "I think I'm having a little moment." My voice quite choked with emotion.

El: "I think he's actually crying."

Now while I wasn't crying I was rendered speechless as I'd set myself a goal of breaking 1100 dps and this was just so far over the mark. I can finally say that when I go as dps to a raid I'm Bringing the Pain, Muhahahahahahaha!!!

This time when we talked to Lady Jaina we all knew where to run instead of standing around like idiots and then running in random directions, and one of our lucky miners managed to get 6 epic and 2 blue gems (lucky bugger).

This time in the horde encampment we wiped on the trash a couple of times both Big Wigs and DBM both wigged out on us and stopped announcing the composition of the trash waves which caught us by surprise and since we hadn't bothered to learn the composition of each wave by heart caused a wipe. 2 more wipes happened on wave 5 due to shackles breaking early and mobs getting caught in consecration which then caused the pally tank to go down under the weight of Abominations. But we persevered and adapted and got to Kaz'rogal.

Kaz'rogal was going great until both the pally tank and the ret pally exploded simultaneously destroying half the melee group and killing the main tank.

Fortunately one of the off tanks, El managed to pick him up and we got him down to below 20% where we had to yet again rely on Thrall to finish the job for us again while one of our druids hid in kitty form, I'm telling you that guy is hard as nails.

I also think that this fight is designed to make every pally in the raid into a living bomb ... maybe we should give them their own little corner to go explode in, because it will happen.

Anyway tonight we go back to MH to get more T6 gloves from Azgalor then we move on to BT to kill the big shrimp and have a go at Supremus .

Oh and when I learned that the raid leaders had forgotten to record the combat log for last nights raid I had another little moment :(

So until next time this is Stuntyone the Incompetent Warrior signing off.
