I’m going to rant a little right now. Just did heroic deadmines. I’m tanking on my new 85 warrior who is a little under 97 minutes old. I join a group who had wiped on Foe Reaper 5000 in the Foundry. As I joined I ask the ret paladin if he knew the fight as he had jumped into the prototype reaper. I didn’t want to assume but a quick inspection showed him in 378/384/397 gear. Everyone else? Geared about the same. I was the only one in a combination of greens/blues and a couple of epics my other toons had mailed me. Easy as.
Encounter started: I pulled the Foe up the ramp to the top, as par the norm… AND THE PALADIN FOLLOWED. He didn’t touch a single mob, just started hitting the boss in the protomech. On top of this, the paladin healer didn’t heal me for 42 seconds - can’t claim LOS because I was standing RIGHT BESIDE HER. She was DPSing the boss (and putting out shit DPS… so, I ask, why?) and SHE HAD FULL MANA.
42 seconds I SHIT YOU NOT. You know how squishy a new 85 warrior is after they have burned all their cooldowns on a heroic boss with no healer?
My pull, my handling - fucking immaculate. I pride myself on being a damn good tank (I have 2 MS tanks and 2 OS tanks - I know my shit). People on my realm LOVE me tanking. Why? Because I actually tank:
How do you get to 85 and NOT know how to play your class? How do you NOT know basics. This is the singular reason why epics should not be obtained easy. This is the singular reason why you should not be in purple gear if you cannot work basic mechanics. OMG stand in fire? It will hurt me?
Just so. Gaaaaaah.
BTW, thanks to me, and it clearly was me, we WTFPWN’d Deadmines after kicking the two fuckwit paladins.6 notes
