So we're in the MgT, about to down Mr. Big Dude (was his name Kael'Thas? that's the name of our server-maybe that's not it). TripleB is explaining the fight, I'm wishing I had practiced kiting a bit more, and then Dammy busts into the room with that look. The look that says "I've had the child for hours now AND I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE". Turns out the Orclette had been up and crying for awhile. So I left right before the big boss. /cry. Sorry Cass, TripleB, Doozie, and Graim. I know that any one of you would've done the same if it were your kid, but still, I don't like to leave like that. There seems to be a pattern to these wake-ups of Orclette's. Around 11 she'll notice that mommy's not around and start whimpering, which turns into full-out crying when Dammy does not produce me immediately. This continues on until he finally calls me for help, at which point the Orclette gets really paranoid about me leaving her. That means I can't move once I've assumed possession of the Orclette. She'll wake up out of a deep sleep if I so much as twitch. Suffice it to say, neither of us got much sleep last night. So I'm gonna have to start either taking a break at 11, or just making sure my run ends around that time.
Anyway, MgT. I had never been there, so was fairly excited about seeing it. And then the blue square came up over a mob's head and I realized that I wasn't with a pally tank. And guys, my trapping skills were sooooooo rusty. /hangs head. I think as the run went on I improved, though, so that makes me happy. And Dax, you need to stop being so awesome.
"Dax did this, it was awesome, you wanna try it?"
me: "Sure!" (with oh craps circling through my head).
Basically it was set a trap out of LOS, misdirect onto your pet, and then start in on skull, ready to chain trap your blue square. Not too difficult on paper but it does require a bunch of button mashing on my part and I'm not that fast. But it went ok the first time, better the second time, and then I decided to just be the target myself because it's a few less buttons and would enable me to get back to DPS'ing more quickly. But now I can add that cool little maneuver to my resume .....
I'm sure my readers already know all the bosses in the instance and don't need me to recap everything. We wiped a few times but eventually got to what my fellow party members called the most difficult pull in the game.
We one-shotted it.
We are awesome =)
And right after that I pulled Orclette aggro and so I didn't get the chance to kite a dangerous fiery phoenix who's trying to kill me instantly.
I had lots of fun, TripleB! I really did! You see, I'm really quiet when grouping with a new set-up of people. I'd partied with all of them before but not frequently, so it still felt new. Ishvi, Nas, and Squirrelz on the other hand I have no problems chatting with. In fact, there needs to be a filter in my brain when I'm writing my emotes around them. Water elemental=water=if you stand too close you get wet, right? So I said Wulfa got all wet. And then realized there was a double meaning. My face got soooo red ...... And my face got red again when I realized Graim had read my write-up of Kara and knew I said he walked on water and that he was my healadin hero ..........
Ok, the Orclette is using me as a jungle gym and I can't concentrate. Wulfa out.
