I was dragged into our guild’s Naxx 25 wrap up on Sunday, and was lucky enough to get Last Laugh (farewell, Sword of I’m Tired of Running UP). I cheerfully ran off to throw a weapon chain on it for the time being, and then…
…realized that I was one point under defense cap.
Oh, for fuck’s sake!
In my great laziness I just went ahead and bought the crafted epic shield I should have had already off the AH, thus ensuring that I’ll replace it in the very next Naxx 25 that I run. Then I looked at my 1h Axe skill and realized it was at…1.
So I ducked below Dalaran and beat on a treant for 25 minutes. I’m not exaggerating, I saw my seal timer tick down. I spent a lot of time alt tabbed, despite the very real risk that some hordie would come along and go LOL PALLY and stomp me. I gave up at 370 or some odd skill because I was finally hitting hard enough to kill the silly trees in only a couple of minutes. I can’t say I like Ambrosyne carrying around such a menacing weapon. I mean, it’s Ambrosyne! Her idea of a taunt is probably something along the lines of “Hey, you! Over here! Don’t hurt my friends!”
Lyestra also recently picked up an axe to tank with, but it suits her nicely. She’s always been the sort where a more brutal weapon was right up her alley. Thankfully the treants were above her in level so there was little risk of her killing them accidentally, so her alt-tabbed weapon skilling was easier. I think weapon skilling is teh dumb, though.
Project-wise I’m currently working on Uldaur Boss Notes, because I have every intention of not letting Huntres explain another raid fight ever again.
