So last night was possibly one of the funnest nights I've ever had in WOW. Let me 'splain.
Logged on to do my auctions. Turns out Nas and Squirrelz were about to run Ishi the Squishie through the Underbog and asked if I wanted to come along. I asked Dammy with pleading eyes and he very graciously agreed to put Orclette to bed (this is still not an enviable job as she usually does not think sleep is a good thing). So we go through, Rysteranch providing additional DPS, and everything was downed pretty quickly. But I'm sure everyone here knows far more about all the instances in the game than I do. I just don't pay attention to that stuff. It's not what makes the game interesting. I like the people. And the peeps were fun. Although I've never partied with Squirrelz, Nas, and Dax before so I felt like I was in an interview (this being The Thing That Scares Me Most) the entire time-not their fault, you understand, it just is what it is. So I spent most of the time doing exactly what Rysteranch was doing, and since he's the greatest hunter of all time, that means I was too =)
After Coilfang (correct name? I hope so ...) Squirrelz and Nas took us through the Slave Pens. They're pretty quiet. Very serious. We were there to kick butt and take names. Although Nas demonstrated a Boomkin dancing, which I had never seen before. Very. Very Scary. And Squirrelz dancing was just a funny sight ...... Eustace joined us halfway through and everything was taken down easy-peasy. Ishi and I each got some nice upgrades, completed a few quests, and we're out of there.
So then Eustace asks if I have any quests I need help with. There were, in point of fact, several that said "group". The time was then 10 p.m., when I usually sign off and fall exhausted into bed. But I had a 70 wanting to help, so I asked for more coffee and went to it.
Eustace's partying style seemed to mesh perfectly with mine (i.e. I hate taking the lead and prefer to follow and shoot-which is why I like hunter so much =) and several quests got done right quick. Then we decided to take on Gurlok, or something like that. Can't remember the dudes name in Nagrand. Got the skulls necessary to summon him, I did the honors, and he stomped me for half my health. Feigned death, Eustace took aggro, and the next thing I saw was him flying through the air. I was stomped soon after that and we end up in the graveyard. Go back to collect our bodies because we didn't want a HUGE repair bill, turns out the Ugly was still there. A bit more prepared this time we managed to down him (ha! take that!). 4 quests completed that I was thinkin' I'd have to wait to complete. Not bad at all. But it was 11 p.m., and my brain was starting the shut-down process. And I don't think it's started again.
And I left a part out of my story. When your GM tells you in advance that he'd like to run you through an instance it might be a good thing to know which instance you'd like to do. It's not like this is hard work on my part-Dammy loves researching that stuff so I let him do it for me. And he told me what I should do, but I forgot the name already. I'm smart, however, and he wrote it all down for me so I can consult my list and sound like I know what I'm doing =)
Another side not: I need a macro that targets the target of my tank. I was going through a complicated series of clicking on tank's pic, clicking on his target, and sending my pet out. Does having a macro make this more efficient? I really know nothing about macros.
And I'm done, partly because I've run out of stuff to say and partly because Orclette is pulling my pants down and poking things .....
