I harangued an old guildy, Tickk, enough to drag him away from SWTOR for a couple of nights.
He hasn’t played in a while, his gear is just a little bit behind, so when the question of whether to random the BGs or enjoy the SotA weekend, we went with SotA.
One of the good things about SotA is that is more forgiving of less geared players. It’s less Player vs. Player, more Machine vs. Player (and Player vs. Machine).
The other thing is that 2 coordinating Frost Mages can cause a lot of havoc in SotA.
Pretty soon we fell into a rhythm. We would play chicken with the 1st frost nova, but after that we would take turns and the Demos would lurch from nova to nova until they were destroyed.
Then I realized that not only were we destroying the Demos, we were also destroying the drivers.
Between Tickk and I we had 6 frost novas (2x: Frost Nova, Pet Freeze, Cone of Cold) and that’s before we take cooldowns or Cold Snap into account.
We normally took the Demos down within 5 of those, so the best part was watching the drivers scrambling from the exploding Demo, only to find themselves at the mercy of two Frost Mages and their allies, frozen with no escape.
It was slaughter. There was always one more nova in the barrel and those punks were never lucky.
I should have kept that Clint Eastwood picture for today….
Gnomer and Out!
