What was normally our Naxx25 night turned into an Ulduar10 night due to lack of sign ups, which was all fine and dandy until you considered that I was fucking tanking.
Also, why the hell does my alt do FL+1 before my main does? Eh? Eh? What the fuck?
We did FL, Razorscale, XT, Crazy Cat Lady, and…Thorim.
I can’t tell if my heart-stopping drops in health were due to my gear (almost all Naxx25 but not quite), or because we had no standard “tank healers” in the raid (two trees and a shammy).
As always, I may know the theory behind something but if I have not DONE it yet, I will usually fail. Thus one wipe on CCL (lrn2pull Amber), and the first two Thorim wipes because fuck if I know how to tank the gauntlet.
We got Thorim the third try and I don’t know how. See, my camera will sometimes get stuck at a funny angle. Normally, I can click frantically a bit and it will fix itself, but when this happens while I’m tanking the first mini-boss on Thorim? Er…
Somehow we killed the first mini-boss, also killed the second (the hunter’s pet brought it to me), and then I was able to run in a wavering, drunken line to Thorim. The whole “tank him with his back to the lighting” aspect was pretty lost on me as I was stuck staring at his ass, and turning him correctly that way was a trial and error process costing the warlock his life…again. Then he keeled over dead and I flailed and whined and fixed my camera and decided that I never wanted to do that ever again.
Then the worlds ugliest tanking mace drops and someone hands it to me. What? No, no, let’s give me loot for THINGS THAT NEED REPLACING. Like, my BELT. Or my CHEST. Oooooor my SHIELD. Not my FUCKING weapon when I have LAST LAUGH hdjashdasdsjhasd.
