I hate soloing, for the most part. Don’t ask me how I ever got my holy paladin to 60 back in the day–I have no idea. My hunter made it by…well, being a hunter. I’ve been mourning the fact that Josh doesn’t want to level with me for some time, and my playing schedule can be so wildly variable that I didn’t feel fair tying anyone else’s toons to mine.
…but then I started playing with Ori. >.> She has a DK tank about the same level as my tree, and a priest roughly the same level as DkAmbro. WIN.
Of course, the fact that I’m playing with Ori means that you don’t get quite so many screaming rants about my tree’s pug tanks. But you do get tales of me being a fail!cat…
Yes, one time the LFD window popped up AND I WAS TO DPS AND NOT HEAL WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SHIT. While I solo Psych as cat and indeed leveled that way to begin with, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE FUCK I AM DOING. I proceeded to flail my way to craptastic DPS (as much as meters matter at level 63, I was at the bottom of them. By a lot). I died to bombs, then died to bombs some more, then stood in a pile of ick after the floaty-boss thing and died, again.
HOW DID I BECOME THE KIND OF DPS THAT I HATE TO HEAL?!
Melee: a bad idea for Amber.
Of course the group kept going for a few instances, so I continued to fail!cat all over the place. I am…going to have to research the 60s level cat, obviously. Bear is so much easier for me to grasp. SWIPE SWIPE MAUL SWIPE SWIPE MAUL SWIPE. ROAR. SWIPE.
If you want to flail about as DPS? CAT IS NOT IT. No, you need to ROLL DK.
Seriously. This isn’t an insult to good DKs, you guys are amazing. But it was absolutely silly to drag out my level 61 Unholy DK that I haven’t touched in months, use basically the same rotation I used for my frost DK to tank, and then proceeded to roll through the instance doing twice the DPS I did on my cat. What?
Maybe I just need to retire my cat spec forever. SWIPE.
Also, being able to tank in my DK started blues on ER Ambrosine is just wrong. Wrong, I tell you. Oh, speaking of.
HEY BLIZZARD. YOU’D THINK THAT BY LEVEL 62 A CLASS CAPABLE OF TANKING COULD HAVE A TAUNT? MAYBE? KTHX.
…and those were my adventures in alt land.
TOMORROW, FUNNY PICTURES OF IT.
(I go to Disneyworld in less than a week now and have no focus. Bear with me! XD)
