Last night I decided to shove my poor level 79 warrior in the LFG tool. If I struggle to quest-grind my way to 80, I can instance my way there, right? Being somewhat rusty with her, however, I was hoping that I’d get an instance I was at least familiar with.
But, fuck no! Murphy’s Law Attack #1: Oculus.
I have run this instance all of two times, once as a healer (Ambrosine) and once as DPS (Lyrandre). Neither trip had been recently, and I certainly hadn’t the faintest idea how to tank it. Well, fuck. One person ditched the group, but I decided that I’d see how much they’d nerfed it.
The answer is that they’ve nerfed it quite a bit, but the mage boss still sucks. During the fight 2 DPS and the healer died, leaving me and a warlock alive. Well, warrior tanks are fucking awesome, and I blew every oh shit button I had. Amazingly enough, we downed the boss, and both of us were still alive-albeit barely, and damn, but that AoE is nonsense.
I turned around to get the fuck out of the frosty shit when I saw the warlock die and something with a red bar above its head come streaking towards me.
Wait, what the fuck?
Murphy’s Law Attack #2: the Curse of Doom will proc a demon at the worst possible time ever.
We didn’t wipe to the boss. We wiped to the demon.
The mother fucking demon.
What the hell?
