I healed ToC
I finally reached 78 and the instance options opened above me.
- Utgarde Pinnacle
- Culling of Stratholme
- Halls of Lightning
I signed up for a few of them, ran a couple of them just fine, but I wasn’t going to sign up to heal CoT.
Can I heal Normal ToC after being 78 for 10 minutes?
I checked with my mates:
You think I can heal normal ToC?
No bloody way mate, it’s hard!
So I stayed away from ToC in the LFG interface.
Vikingmetal came online and offered to run a few instances. I told him those instances I thought I would be OK with, which didn’t include ToC.
Next thing I know, the group is formed and I ask where we are going…
Well actually we didn’t. We wiped once, there we a couple of additional misc deaths, but the Black Knight went down.
Mind you, the only one left standing was Viking, but I had managed to keep the group up long enough for him to solo the Black Knight to death.
It wasn’t pretty, but it was done. I had done it.
Feeling a little less unsure I signed up again. This time I was grabbed by a well geared and experienced 80 Tankadin.
We survived (ok, there may have been a wipe in there somewhere, but we won’t talk about that). I even got complimented for healing well above my gear… Nice!
One nub = a Wipe
Third time not so lucky. I grabbed Viking as he was heading off to bed. Unfortunately more of us went down than mobs (no, not bosses, mobs).
In an encounter similar to Rhii’s, we just couldn’t pull it off.
Like Rhii, I suspect that it was all the fault of one party member. Sure I am being unfair, but it couldn’t have been my fault.
This warrior has been plaguing me since Maruadon. Ever since he tried to tank the slimes and died. Then quit the group in a rage when I kite tanked 3 of them and killed them by myself while he abused the healer. If I wanted to tank… He was going.
Ironically, nub is a badge of honor for him and even forms a part of his name… I need the Namescore addon!
I have mistakenly invited him to groups since. One VH run we got through by the skin of my totems, but he was always the 1st to die.
Problem is he doesn’t like to die alone.
Anyway he was there for the fail ToC and constantly apologizing for his screw ups.
While he may not have been directly responsible for our ultimate fail, I think he all wore us down enough that we were susceptible to the Black Knight’s plague.
I’ve been 80 for a few days now.
I am definitely not going to heal HToC…
I will DPS it of course…
Well until we wiped 4 times and the Healadin suggests a change of tactics.. he will Tank, I will heal…
Mmmm, I warn him it isn’t likely to happen, but since we are saved it’s worth one more go…
We took the Black Knight down, only one death… ME! But late enough that they could finish him off.
